March 6: Hell

March 6

Your agreement with death
and the world of the dead
will be broken.
Then angry, roaring waves
will sweep over you.
–Isaiah 28:18

Go in through the narrow gate. The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate.
–Matthew 7:13

I died, but now I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys to death and the world of the dead.
–Revelation 1:18


Revelation Chapter Twenty-Two


1 The angel pointed out to me the river

Of lifewater, as clear as crystal, which

Flowed from the throne where God Almighty and


The Lamb were seated, 2 and it coursed down through

The main street’s center. On the river’s side

The tree of life did stand, and bore twelve crops


Of fruit, for every month it yielded fruit.

And the tree’s leaves are for the nations’ healing.

3 No longer will the curse survive. The throne


Of God Almighty and the Lamb shall be

In it; his servants will assist him. 4 They

Will see his face; his name shall be upon


Their foreheads. 5 Never more will night appear−

They will not need the lamp or sun, because

The LORD will give them light; and they will reign


Forevermore. 6 The angel said to me,

“These words are true and faithful, for the LORD,

God of the prophets’ spirits, has sent out


His angel to inform his servants of

Things soon to happen.” 7 “Look, I’m coming soon!

And happy is the man who keeps the words


Of prophecy within this book.” 8 I, John,

Did see and hear these things, and when I’d heard

And seen them, I fell down to worship at


The feet of the same angel who had been

Displaying them to me, 9 but then he said

To me, “Do not do that! I am like you,


A fellow servant, like your brothers, prophets,

Like every one of those who keep the words

Within this book. You have to worship God!”


10 He said, “Do not seal up prophetic words

Within this book, because the time’s at hand.

11 Let the man who does wrong keep doing wrong;


Let the man who is vile keep being vile;

Let the man who does right keep doing right;

And let the holy man continue in


His holiness. 12 Look, I am coming soon!

I carry my reward with me, and I

Will give to everyone according to


What he has done. 13 I am the Alpha and

Omega, the Beginning and the End,

The First and Last, 14 and happy are the ones


Who wash their robes, that they may have the right

To the tree of life and enter the city gates

15 For outside are immoral people, dogs,


Sorcerers, murderers, idolaters,

And everyone who loves to lie. 16 I, Jesus,

Have sent my angel to give you this same


Witness for churches. I am David’s Root

And Offspring, and the brilliant Morning Star.”

17 The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” And let


Him who hears me say, “Come!” The man who’s thirsty,

Let him come; and whoever wishes, let

Him take the lifewater as a free gift.


18 I testify to all who hear the words

In this prophetic book: If any man

Adds to them, God will add to him the plagues


Depicted in this book, 19 and if a man

Takes words away from this prophetic book,

God will remove from him the share he has


Within the life tree and the holy city,

As written in this book. 20 He who is witness

To all this says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.”


And so, Lord Jesus, come back soon. 21 The grace

Of the Lord Jesus be with all God’s saints.
