    It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Our God Jehovah, is a consuming fire, and to trample under foot the great sacrifice of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, will bring eternal fire and damnation upon your soul. He that has the Son has life, but he that has not the Son, abides under the wrath of God. If you die in that state, your soul will be lost forever in the Lake of Fire. So call upon the Lord while you have life, and you will be saved.
