You wake up in the morning, and look outside the window and see what a beautiful day it is. You get up after a short while and put on the coffee. The early morning senses wake up to the great smell of coffee while you open up the windows to let some fresh air in. The radiance from the light of the sun beams in and reflects off the floor and the walls, illuminating the house.
Claimed lives in a recent accidentAll is usual and another day is here as 8 'o clock rolls around; time for work, hop in the car.
Meanwhile, another family receives a call for some firewood early in the morning. As it would strike the mind to be a good idea, the whole family plans to grab breakfast on the road and take a ride as a family to see how green the scenary got from last nights rain showers.
All is usual and another day is here as 8 'o clock rolls around; time for more wood delivery, hop in the car.
There's no question about it, neither of the two parties even knew eachother, nor did they plan on dying that day. In a head-on collision on Highway 89 near Buffalo Run Road, just half a mile north of Chino Valley town limits, the gates of Hell opened as these lost people's lives were claimed in the flames that broke out and consumed both vehicles and their occupants. To give you an idea of the spread of the flames, the license plates on both vehicles were devoured, making police investigation work even more difficult.
FirefighterDepicted in the image to the left is a firefighter desperately seeking for any last survivors being tormented in the flame he's come face to face with. And yet you can see how easily the flame can take his life, by suffocation, by excessive temperature, or by consumption. To imagine Hell would be to multiply what this firefighter is enduring times 100 with ten billion more zeros behind that in degrees Celsius. If the human mind can comprehend such enormous temperature that not even the sun could be known to have, then that would only amount to a fraction of what it would be like in Hell.
Without a warning, without alert, the people who died in the flames of the accident only got a glimpse of the place they may have been going. The tragic part about it, is that there's no escaping God's perfect wrath when it's too late. The Bible says in Hebrews 2:3 "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation..."
The truth of the matter is that it was their time to go, even when they had not planned on it...even if they didn't want to. In Luke 12:20, God says "...thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?"
Are you ready for eternity? Or are you going to wait until it's too late and you find yourself burning, fueled by your gas tank and the load of wood your encounter is carrying? These people did. They lost their lives, and while the last flame was put out from their bodies by the Chino Valley Fire Department, had they known the Lord ahead of time, they would not have seen the flames of Hell which today consume their souls for all eternity.
The Bible says in Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
If you would like to this obtain that eternal life, you must realize that you are a sinner, repent of your sin and ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and save your soul from the eternal burning and flames of Hell. It's that simple. Make the choice, do it now. The Bible says "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." Don't gamble with tomorrow, because it may never come. And for the unsuspecting lost person, tonight may not even be here.
