Cold-Blooded in Hell’s Flames

Sunday, April 7, 2019

Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword, saith the Lord GOD (Ezekiel 32:31 KJV).

Why is Pharaoh “comforted?”

Bible scoffers make light of the reality of Hell. Their mocking is a vain attempt to soften that most inconvenient truth. They desire to sleep better at night, so they may rise in the morning and repeat their transgressions without fear of eternal penalty. (Delusional!) Dismissed as a “fairytale,” the deterrent from life apart from God is “out of mind,” and living for self can continue unabated. (Delusional!)

If they do acknowledge Hell, Bible deriders sardonically declare that they will have a party with their friends down there. Again, the severity of Hell toned down, the sinner may resume that wayward path. (Delusional!) Hell is not as enjoyable as lost people have deceived themselves into believing. Yet, in a twisted sense, as today’s Scripture shows, there is actually one satisfaction in Hell!

Through the Prophet Ezekiel, Pharaoh is described as “comforted.” Why? He is suffering in the flames of Hell, but he is glad because he is not alone! Yes, he takes consolation in noticing that there are plenty of others partaking of his awful, eternal fate! Surrounding him are his troops, also slain in battle, forever his companions in the place of God’s unending wrath. He notices leaders of other nations, tormented with them. Read Ezekiel chapter 32 in its entirety: they are in the “nether [lower] parts of the earth, with them that go into the pit [of Hell]… the midst of hell… whose graves are set in the sides of the pit… nether parts of the earth… go down to the pit… gone down to hell… with them that go down to the pit… them that go down to the pit” (verses 18,21,23-25,27,29,30).

Here is fallen man, with all restraints removed. Even in Hell, he is utterly void of sympathy, a sadistic and incorrigible soul. He takes pleasure in the sufferings of the multitudes agonizing around him: their bloodcurdling screams, crying, and deep groans soothe him. They are home, forever home, the damned of the ages, and they are glad that many endure their sufferings! Yea, in this case, “misery loves company!”

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
