Jesus Asked a Timeless Question of His Enemies
Matthew 23:33 (KJB) Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Jesus knew the answer to this question. He also knew the heart condition of these men. He knew that they had no spiritual understanding now, nor had any inkling of Calvary yet to come, but it was an important and probing question to ask.
This question still reverberates with a hard truth today.
Sadly, there are many people who have no immediate answer to this sharp question. The darkened hearts of many choose not to recognize God, or that there are specific eternal places called heaven and a hell. Or even consider that every person will give an answer to God one day for his or her life.
A man is either an eternal friend in spiritual fellowship with God, or he is forever an enemy of God and headed to damnation in hell forevermore.
