Hell Is Constantly Being Enlarged!

By: Bill and Teddy Rogers (Revised 07/19/2022)

Isaiah 5:14 says Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”


Heaven or Hell – Which will be your future eternal home? The choice is entirely up to you!

God created Hell for the devil and his rebellious angels, not for mankind. Hell is so horrible that God was willing to send His only Son to die in our place so that we could be saved from going there.

God doesn't condemn us to Hell. We actually condemn ourselves by choosing to go there. It is a choice but it is not God's choice.

God is offering you a full pardon ( a Free Gift of eternal life with Him in Heaven ) and you can either accept it or reject it.

Don’t let Hell be enlarged because you refused to accept God’s Free Gift Of Pardon!


God created man in His own image to spend eternity with Him.


Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), the French mathematician, author and philosopher said “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man that cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the creator, made known through Jesus Christ.”

As stated by Blaise Pascal, we are all born with a deep-seated awareness of and hunger for God in our being.

But, most of us try to fill this void with all kinds of things like money, drugs, sex, false religion, personal relationships, and on and on. Nothing, however, will fill this void but Jesus.

Romans 3:23 says for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

This Bible verse clearly states that all of us sin to a greater or lesser degree and all of us have failed to attain the standard of God which is His perfect character.

It also states that we are all sinners by nature and by personal actions and none of us are righteous.



God is holy and cannot have a relationship with a fallen man. So God elected to bridge the chasm by sending Jesus, His only begotten Son, to die on the cross for the redemption of our sins and making forgiveness Free to anyone that will ask.


John 3:18 saysWhoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”


Being saved means relaxing and allowing Jesus to save you. Your participation is limited to you accepting the fact that you can never save yourself.

Many people feel that before they can come to Jesus, they must first clean themselves up. The harder you try to clean yourself up, the dirtier you get. Just come as you are, dirt and all. Simply ask and believe and Jesus will give you a mind to do things differently (the cleaning up).


You can settle your eternal destiny right now by simply receiving the pardon that Jesus purchased for you.

Ephesians 2:8-9 saysFor it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Romans 10:9-10 saysIf you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

Right now, admit that you are a sinner, pray and ask Jesus to forgive you, come into your heart, and take over your life.

Do it now - This will be the best choice you will ever make!  Simply say the following prayer and mean it from your heart.

Dear God In Heaven…

I come to you in the name of Jesus. I confess that I am a sinner and I’m sorry for my sins, the way I’ve lived, and the things I’ve done.

Please forgive me and cleanse me with your precious blood from all unrighteousness.

With my mouth, I confess the Lord Jesus. In my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and He is alive.

This very moment, I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and I make Him the Lord of my life.

And according to Your Word, which cannot lie, I’m washed, I’m cleansed, I’m forgiven, and I am saved.

Praise God in Jesus name!

Then, thank God for saving you and giving you eternal life with Him.



Your name will be written down in God’s “Lamb's Book Of Life”, you will be numbered among the redeemed, and Heaven will be your future home. Hallelujah!
And, don't be a closet Christian. To confirm your salvation, immediately tell someone that you have just accepted Jesus as your Savior.

As soon as possible, acquire a Bible and read it everyday. It's your Spiritual Food! To gain a good understanding of Jesus Christ and His message, we recommend that you begin with the Gospel of John and then the Book Of Acts and the Book Of Romans.

Finally, locate and regularly attend a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church where you can be fed Spiritually and be baptized. As you search for the right church, remember to pray for God's guidance.

7 Consequences Of Worrying.

By: Bill and Teddy Rogers


1. Worrying can bring your activities to a complete stop; 

2. Worrying can damage your health;

3. Worrying can cause the object of your worry to consume your thoughts;

4. Worrying can disrupt your productivity;

5. Worrying can negatively affect the way you treat others;

6. Worrying can reduce your ability to trust; 

7. Worrying can cause you to waste today.


Mattthew 6:25 says “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”

1. The Same God Who Created Life In You Can Be Trusted With The Details Of Your Life.

Matthew 6:26 says “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

2. Worrying About The Future Hampers Your Efforts For Today.

Matthew 6:27 says “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

3. Worrying Is More Harmful Than Helpful.

Matthew 6:28-30 says “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?”

4. God Does Not Ignore Those Who Depend On Him.

Matthew 6:31-32 says “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.”

5. Worry Shows A Lack Of Faith In And Understanding Of God.

Matthew 6:33 says “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

6. There Are Real Challenges God Wants Us To Pursue And Worrying Keeps Us From Them.

Matthew 6:34 says “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

7. Living One Day At A Time Keeps Us From Being Consumed With Worry.

Note: The Bible tells us not to worry about those needs that God promises to supply.

Don't let worries about tomorrow affect what you do today. Planning for tomorrow is time well spent but worrying about tomorrow is time totally wasted! For we are not even promised a tomorrow.

Jesus Is Crucified, Mummified And Resurrected.

Jesus being mummified.

By: Bill and Teddy Rogers

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”


After His crucifixion and death on the cross, Jesus was taken down and His bruised and bloody body cleaned as much as possible. Then, Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus placed Jesus in the borrowed tomb. They wrapped His feet, legs, arms and torso with two inch strips of cloth. (everything but His head).

They used 100 pounds of myrrh and aloes (a liquid oil) to saturate every inch of the cloth strips. When this liquid dried, it formed a very hard shell in the perfect shape of Jesus' body (See John 19:39).

Note: The Israelis learned this mummification process from the Egyptians during their 400 plus years of captivity in Egypt.

In accordance with Jewish burial customs, they laid a burial cloth over Jesus' head.

When they had finished, they had a very large round stone rolled over the entrance of the tomb to seal it.


Jesus lay in the borrowed tomb for three days and three nights. Sometime after sunset on Saturday and before sunrise on Sunday, the Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead.


Very early on Sunday morning, just after sunrise, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb so that they might anoint Jesus’ body. When they got there, they saw an opened tomb and an angel who told them that Jesus was no longer there and had risen.

Next, they saw the risen Jesus who told them to go and tell His disciples to meet Him in Galilee.

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.


As soon as they heard that Jesus had risen, Peter and John ran to the tomb. When they got there and went into the tomb, they saw the untouched hardened Myrrh and Aloe covered shell that was empty and the neatly folded head cloth laid on the bench. For the first time, they understood that Jesus had actually risen from the dead just as He told them He would.

For all the details, read Mathew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24 and John 20.


The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of Christianity. If Christ had not been resurrected, Christianity would not exist today and we would have No Hope” of having our sins forgiven, of being saved, or of spending eternity in Heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:17-20 saysAnd if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

Hallelujah – Jesus Is Alive And Well And We Can Be Saved If We Choose To!


John 14:6 says “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’”

For you to spend eternity in Heaven, you must choose to accept Jesus as your savior and make Him Lord of your life. There is no other way!

If you have not done this yet but would like to, say the following prayer. Believe it with all of your heart and mean it from your soul. If you do this, you will be saved (born again) and Heaven will be your eternal home.

Dear God in Heaven – I come to you in the name of Jesus. I ask that you forgive me of all my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood from all unrighteousness. With my mouth, I confess the Lord Jesus. In my heart, I believe that you raised Him from the dead and He is alive. This very moment, I accept Jesus Christ as the savior of my soul and I make Him Lord of my Life. And according to your Word, which cannot lie, I’m washed, I’m cleansed, I’m forgiven, I’m saved. Praise God – Hallelujah – Amen!

Important: To confirm your salvation, tell someone what you have just done.

The Crucifixion And Death Of Jesus Christ.

The Following Was Sent To Us Via Email And We Felt That It Was An Appropriate Post For This Easter Season. It Was Condensed From "The Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ" By C. Truman Davis, M.S. March, 1965


After the Passover Meal, Jesus and His Disciples went to the Garden Of Gethsemane so Jesus could pray.


The physical trauma of Christ begins in the Garden Of Gethsemane with one of the initial aspects of His suffering - the bloody sweat. It is interesting that the physician of the group, St. Luke, is the only one to mention this.

Luke 22:44 (NASB) says And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.

Though very rare, the phenomenon of hemathidrosis, or bloody sweat, is well documented. Under great emotional stress, tiny capillaries in the sweat glands can break, thus mixing blood with sweat. This process alone could have produced marked weakness and possible shock.


After His arrest in the middle of the night, Jesus was brought before the Sanhedrin (the ruling council) and Caiaphas, the High Priest. A soldier struck Jesus across the face for remaining silent when questioned by Caiaphas. The palace guards then blindfolded Him and mockingly taunted Him to identify them as they each passed by; they spat on Him and struck Him in the face.


In the early morning, Jesus, battered and bruised, dehydrated, and exhausted from a sleepless night, was taken across Jerusalem to the Praetorium of the Fortress Antonia. It was there, in response to the cries of the mob, that Pilate ordered Bar-Abbas released and condemned Jesus to scourging and crucifixion.


Preparations for the scourging are carried out. The prisoner is stripped of His clothing and His hands tied to a post above His head.

The Roman legionnaire steps forward with the flagrum in his hand. This is a short whip consisting of several heavy, leather thongs with two small balls of lead attached to the ends of each.

The heavy whip is brought down with full force again and again across Jesus’ shoulders, back and legs.

At first the heavy thongs cut through the skin only. Then, as the blows continue, they cut deeper into subcutaneous tissues, producing first an oozing of blood from the capillaries and veins of the skin, and finally spurting arterial bleeding from vessels in the underlying muscles.

The small balls of lead first produce large, deep bruises which are broken open by subsequent blows.  Finally the skin of the back is hanging in long ribbons and the entire area is an unrecognizable mass of torn, bleeding tissue.

When it is determined by the centurion in charge that the prisoner is near death, the beating is stopped.


The half-fainting Jesus is then untied and allowed to slump to the stone pavement, wet with His own blood.

The Roman soldiers see a great joke in this provincial Jew claiming to be a king. They throw a robe across His shoulders and place a stick in His hand for a scepter.

A small bundle of flexible branches covered with long thorns is pressed into His scalp.  Again there is copious bleeding (the scalp being one of the most vascular areas in the body).

After mocking Him and striking Him across the face, the soldiers take the stick from His hand and strike Him across the head, driving the thorns deeper into His scalp.  Finally, they tire of their sadistic sport and the robe is torn from His back.

The robe had already started sticking to the clots of blood and serum in the wounds, and its removal, just as in the careless removal of a surgical bandage, cause excruciating pain - almost as though He were again being whipped, and the wounds again begin to bleed.


The heavy beam of the cross is then tied across His shoulders, and the procession of the condemned Christ, two thieves and the execution detail, begins its slow journey.

The weight of the heavy wooden beam, together with the shock produced by copious blood loss, is too much. He stumbles and falls. The rough wood of the beam gouges into the lacerated skin and muscles of His shoulders. He tries to rise, but human muscles have been pushed beyond their endurance.

The centurion, anxious to proceed with the crucifixion, selected a stalwart North African onlooker, Simon of Cyrene, to carry the cross.

Jesus followed, still bleeding and sweating the cold, clammy sweat of shock. The 650-yard journey from the Fortress Antonia to Golgotha was finally completed. The prisoner was again stripped of His clothing except for a loin cloth which was allowed the Jews.


At Golgotha, the beam is placed on the ground and Jesus is quickly thrown backward with His shoulders against the wood. The legionnaire feels for the depression at the front of the wrist. He drives a heavy, square, wrought-iron nail through the wrist and deep into the wood.

Quickly, he moves to the other side and repeats the action, being careful not to pull the arms too tightly, but to allow some flexion and movement. The beam is then lifted in place at the top of the posts and a sign reading “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews” is nailed in place.


The left foot is pressed backward against the right foot, and with both feet extended, toes down, a nail is driven through the arch of each. As he pushes Himself upward to avoid the stretching torment, He places His full weight on the nail through His feet.

There is searing agony of the nail tearing through the nerves between the metatarsal bones through the feet.

As Jesus slowly sagged down with more weight on the nails in the wrists, excruciating, fiery pain shot along the fingers and up the arms to explode in the brain. The nails in the wrists were putting pressure on the median nerve, large nerve trunks which traverse the mid-wrist and hand.

As He pushed himself upward to avoid this stretching torment, He placed His full weight on the nail through His feet. Again there was searing agony as the nail tore through the nerves between the metatarsal bones of this feet.


As the arms fatigue, great waves of cramps sweep over the muscles, knotting them in deep, relentless, throbbing pain.

With these cramps comes the inability to push Himself upward. Hanging by His arms, the pectoral muscles are unable to act. Air can be drawn into the lungs, but cannot be exhaled. Jesus fights to raise Himself in order to get even one short breath.

Finally, carbon dioxide builds up in the lungs and in the blood stream and the cramps partially subside. Spasmodically, He is able to push Himself upward to exhale and bring in the life-giving oxygen.

Hours of this limitless pain, cycles of twisting, joint-rending cramps, intermittent partial asphyxiation, searing pain as tissue is torn from His lacerated back as He moves up and down against the rough timber.

Then another agony begins. A deep crushing pain deep in the chest as the pericardium slowly fills with serum and begins to compress the heart.

The compressed heart is struggling to pump heavy, thick, sluggish blood into the tissues - the tortured lungs are making a frantic effort to gasp in small gulps of air. The markedly dehydrated tissues send their flood of stimuli to the brain. Jesus gasps, “I thirst.”


He could feel the chill of death creeping through His tissues. This realization brought forth little more than a tortured whisper: "It is finished."

His mission of atonement had been completed. Finally, He could allow His body to die. With one last surge of strength, He once again pressed His torn feet against the nail, straightened His legs, took a deeper breath, and uttered His last cry: "Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit."

The common method of ending a crucifixion was by crurifracture, the breaking of the bones of the leg. This prevented the victim from pushing himself upward; the tension could not be relieved from the muscles of the chest, and rapid suffocation occurred.

The legs of the two thieves were broken, but when the soldiers approached Jesus, they saw that this was not necessary.

Apparently, to make doubly sure of death, the legionnaire drove his lance between the ribs, upward through the pericardium and into the heart.

John 19:34 (NASB) says But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.”

Thus there was an escape of watery fluid from the sac surrounding the heart and the blood of the interior of the heart. This is rather conclusive post-mortem evidence that Jesus died, not the usual crucifixion death by suffocation, but of heart failure due to shock and constriction of the heart by fluid in the pericardium.


In these events, we have seen a glimpse of the evil that man can exhibit toward his fellowman and toward God.

But the Crucifixion was not the end of the story. How grateful we can be that we have a sequel: a glimpse of the infinite mercy of God toward man -- the gift of atonement, the miracle of the resurrection, and the expectation of Easter morning.

Our Note: Jesus loved us so much that He was willing to suffer and die a horrific death on the cross to pay the penalty due for our sins so that you and I could have our sins forgiven, be saved and have everlasting life.


John 3:16 (NASB) says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

John 3:36 (NASB) says He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

John 5:24 (NASB) says “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”

John 6:40 (NASB) says For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”

1 John 5:11 (NASB) saysAnd the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

John 14:6 (NASB) says Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

Romans 10:8-10 (NASB) says But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart’—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”

God’s Gift Of Salvation Is Free! To be saved, become an Adopted Child Of God, and have everlasting life, all we have to do is confess that we are a sinner, ask God to forgive us, accept Jesus as our personal savior and make Him Lord of our life. We encourage you not to wait – do this today!
