The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Satan is known by many names – the Devil, the Prince of the Power of the Air, Beelzebub, Lucifer, Son of Perdition, the Thief, and many others. Whatever you call him, know that he is desirable and beautiful, that he is alive and well and a very real adversary. His goal is simple. He wants you to suffer and then he wants to destroy you and all that you love.
Hell is a real place of eternal suffering where the souls of the lost will be in agony and tormented day and night forever. This is God’s punishment for sin but thankfully, through Jesus Christ that we can escape that fate and exchange hell for heaven. Jesus tells us clearly that after you finish your life on Earth you will spend the rest of eternity in one of two places – either with Satan in hell or with him in heaven.
