Meditate Upon Hell

William Dyer, “Christ’s Famous Titles”

Meditate often on these four last things:
Death, which is most certain.
Judgment, which is most strict.
Hell, which is most doleful.
Heaven, which is most delightful.

Meditate upon hell, which is most doleful!

Heaven is a place where all is joyful;
and
Hell is a place where all is doleful.

In Heaven–there is nothing but happiness;
but in Hell–there is nothing but heaviness!

“The wicked shall be turned into Hell, and
all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17
Mark, sirs–the wicked shall be turned into hell.

Oh, dreadful place–where the devil is the jailer!

Hell is the prison,
damnation is the
punishment,
eternity is the
duration,
brimstone is the
fire, and
men and devils are the
fuel!

To endure this will be intolerable;
and to
avoid it will be impossible!

This is the day of God’s long-suffering;
that will be the day of
man’s long-suffering!
There they will suffer:
pain without ease,
torment without end,
sorrow without support,
and
misery without mercy!

Sirs! Meditate upon Hell!

Oh, what hells are there in Hell!
Hell is:
the loss of God,
the loss of Christ,
the loss of all good!

Endless, ceaseless, and remediless torments must be their eternal portion!

Oh, that you would often think of Hell!

If once you drop into Hell–then after a thousand years:
you will be as far from
coming out of Hell,
as you were at your first
entrance into Hell!

There is only one way to KEEP a man out of Hell
–but there is
no way to GET a man out of Hell!

In this world, the wheat and the chaff both grow
together, but they shall not always both lie together!

In Hell, there shall not be a saint among those who are terrified!
In Heaven, there shall not be a sinner among those who are glorified!

The sea of damnation–shall never be
sweetened with a
drop of compassion!

Will you pity a person who is going to the gallows–and
will you not pity a person who is going to the
bottomless pit?

What a dreadful visitation is that–where
the
black horse of death goes before, and
the
red horse of wrath follows after!

Oh, that must needs be sad–when one death comes upon the back of another; when the second death comes upon the back of the first death!

A man’s condition in this life may be honorable,
and yet his state in eternity may be damnable!

Poor Lazarus goes to Heaven–
when
rich Dives goes to Hell.

It is far better to go to Heaven poorly
–than it is to go to Hell richly!

Oh, sirs! let us go to Hell by contemplation, that
we may never go to Hell by
condemnation!

Oh sirs! Meditate upon Hell!
