Luke 16:27-29 . . I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, for I have
five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of
torment.

The five brothers would more than likely recognize Lazarus because he was laid at
the rich man's gate; so that whenever they came over for a visit; there he'd be for
them to walk past.

But I have to wonder just what exactly would Lazarus tell them about their
deceased brother's circumstances down in the netherworld. Lazarus would likely tell
the men about his own circumstances too.

When Jesus passed away on the cross, he didn't go up, instead he went down;
likely to the section of the afterlife where Abraham was. Jesus called it paradise,
which is translated from a Greek word meaning a park, e.g. New York's central park
where folks can go for walks in nature, play soccer, bicycle, bird watch, boat, take
in entertainment like concerts and events, even dine.

I've a notion there are lots of little children down in that park too and fully
accommodated with plenty of interesting playground equipment, carousels, pony
rides, possibly even a zoo, and quiet places here and there where kids can sit and
listen to stories read to them from books. Who really knows for sure what to expect
in paradise?

Lazarus might then compare all that to their brother's side of the afterlife.

I can well imagine that the men would be fascinated by Lazarus' tale but not
fascinated enough to make a difference because Abraham assured the rich man
that his brothers wouldn't believe Lazarus; and honestly: who in their right mind
would; especially a tale coming from a no-account indigent whose body covered
with sores very likely wasn't even given a decent burial but instead dumped without
ceremony in a landfill somewhere?

John 2:23-25 . . Because of the miraculous signs he did in Jerusalem at the
Passover celebration, many people were convinced that he was indeed the Messiah.
But Jesus didn't trust them, because he knew what people were really like. No one
needed to tell him about human nature.

The Greek word translated "convinced" is the self-same word translated "trust". In
other words; though people believed in Jesus, he did not believe in them.

Well, his unbelief was justified. The same people who believed in him due to his
miracles are the very folks who later-on demanded his execution.

Oliver Cromwell-- who took the British throne away from Charles l, and established
the Commonwealth --said to a friend: Do not trust to the cheering, for those same
persons would cheer just as much if you and I were going to be hanged.

The Lord wasn't looking for people's religion, nor was he looking for people's piety
and/or conduct on Passover night. He was looking for just one thing, and one thing
only: the blood.

That being the case, then had a Jewish family failed to apply the blood in the proper
manner, their first-born son would've been slain. On the other hand; were an
Egyptian family careful to apply the blood in the proper manner, their son would've
been spared because the The Lord is neither biased nor prejudiced.

Along that same line; Jesus' blood will protect anybody and everybody who applies
it in the proper manner because he died for all; no exceptions regardless of age,
race, gender and/or religious preference. But many won't be protected by his blood,
because they will neglect to apply it at all, let alone properly.

To get the blood applied to our doorpost we must obey Acts 2:38 for the remission of our sins.

This is a thread that appears under different pseudonyms that use the same profile picture, and are at times titled, Hell's Population Clock.

How anyone would presume to speculate on such things is a question in itself I think.

However, that the Book of Revelation informs no one is yet in either Heaven or Hell, is the answer that should preclude such conjecture.

Acts 2 teaches the listeners received the words Peter brought. However, only those God called to Himself were Saved by them.

We do not choose God. God chooses us. We don't choose God.

Revelation 20
Hell is full of folks now, per the story Jesus told of the rich man and Lazarus.

It will be cast into the lake of fire per Rev 20.

Actually, it is reciprocal to be saved...

Our part is to repent.

The Church's part is to baptize us in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins.

God's part is to fill us with the Holy Ghost.

We repent as ones called, the many, the elect, whom Jesus served as Ransome, because God called us to him.

We do not choose God. He chooses us.

well it is well and truely taugh form Scriptures how to " apply " ( your words ) His shed Blood...

Romans 10:7 or, "'Who will descend into Sh'ol?'" that is, to bring the Messiah up from the dead.
8 What, then, does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart. "l that is, the word about trust which we proclaim, namely,
9 that if you acknowledge publicly with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord and trust in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be delivered.
10 For with the heart one goes on trusting and thus continues toward righteousness, while with the mouth one keeps on making public acknowledgement and thus continues toward deliverance.
11 For the pas sage quoted says that everyone who rests his trust on him will not be humiliated.
12 That means that there is no difference between Jew and Gentile - ADONAI is the same for everyone, rich toward everyone who calls on him,
13 since everyone who calls on the name of ADONAI will be delivered.

NB verse 9.. why is this not taught in any Church ?

Although church attendance is oftentimes thought of as worship, in reality it's not
quite.

John 4:21 . . Jesus declared: Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will
worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

* Jerusalem is the Temple site-- the very hub of worship --yet Jesus ranks it below
something far more important.

Real worship begins in the heart; as an attitude.

John 4:22-24 . . A time is coming, and has now come, when the true worshipers
will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the
Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

The Greek word translated "worship" in that passage is proskuneo (pros koo neh'
o) which roughly pertains to kissing someone's hand-- fawning and/or crouching,
and/or prostrating oneself in homage; i.e. reverence.

That all strongly suggests groveling; defined by Webster's as creeping with the face
to the ground, i.e. crawling with the body prostrate in token of subservience or
abasement; for example:

Matt 5:3 . . Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matt 5:5 . . Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Matt 5:9 . . Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

No amount of church attendance, nor any amount of liturgy, can substitute for the
proper spirit in one's approach to God. If truth be known, there are countless
thousands of folk attending church with whom God would be just as pleased if they
went to a sports bar instead because their presence in church offends His
sensibilities and makes Him nauseous.

Well, since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
It's down at the end of Lonely Street at
Heartbreak Hotel.

Although it's always crowded,
You still can find some room
For broken-hearted lovers
To cry there in their gloom.

That song, by Elvis Presley back in 1956, was very popular; and useful for depicting
some of the conditions folks might expect in the netherworld should they end up on
the wrong side of things. For example: just as Elvis' hotel always has a vacancy, so
the netherworld too.

Prov 30:15-16 . . There are three things that will not be satisfied-- four that will
not say, "Enough"

One of the four listed in that passage is Sheol, a.k.a. Hades.

And then there's "cry there in their gloom"

Matt 13:40-42 . . As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so
shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and
they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and
gnashing of teeth.

Heb 6:4-6 . . For it is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who
have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted
the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall
away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying
the Son of God afresh and subjecting him to public disgrace.

We know that with God nothing is impossible. So, I think we have to acquiesce that
the impossibility spoken of here is so because God has made it His mission in life,
so to speak, to assure that folks blessed with the level of advantages spoken of
here are never to be given an opportunity to reconsider-- ever.

That passage is about those that try to bring the Law of the OT into the NT church.

Matt 13:10 . . And the disciples came and said to him: Why do you speak to them
in parables?

Matt 13:11 . . It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of
heaven, but to them it is not given.

Jesus answered their inquiry by referring to an incident in the 6th chapter of
Isaiah's prophecy wherein God had lost interest in numbers of His people because
they had lost interest in Him.

The Jews' spiritual condition was little different in Jesus' day, i.e. many were called
but few chosen, and that's because the many were indifferent; which is not the
appropriate response.

1Sam 3:19 . .The Lord was with Samuel as he grew up, and he let none of His
words fall to the ground.
