Is Believing in Hell REALLY necessary? Why? Well, for one, Jesus spoke of it as a real place. If we decide that we can pick and chose our own beliefs about Jesus and His teaching, we stand a good chance of missing out on God's grace, altogether. God's grace will close. The door to His Kingdom will be shut, and those who have procrastinated or refused that grace will be placed in Hell.
Pastor teaches his family a selection from "the Proverb of the day." In these six verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us the sinfulness, deceitfulness, and harm of laziness—especially for those who should be image-bearers.

The Cambridge Dictionary gives a definition of Procrastination.
Procrastination according to the Cambridge Dictionary is: The act of delaying something that must be done.
Are you a Procrastinator or are you the opposite?
In Acts 22 Paul gives his testimony to the Jews at Jerusalem and reveals to a Roman Centurion that Paul Himself is a Roman (Acts 22.25).
In Acts 23 more than 40 Jewish men make a vow to kill Paul and the Romans give Paul an armoured guard of 470 trained Roman soldiers to escort Paul out of Jerusalem.
Paul was also provided with horses to safely take him to Felix the Roman Governor in Caesarea.
Now in Acts Chapter 24 Paul gets to witness to the Roman Governor Felix and his wife Drusilla.
A. T. Robertson states of Felix, 'He was one of the most depraved men of his time'. Another commentator stated about Felix that 'his court reeked with blood and debauchery.'
Felix and Drusilla were in an unlawful relationship. Felix was an evil man and Drusilla came from an evil dysfunctional Royal Family.
Now when you read Acts 24 Felix wanted money from Paul but he got something far more valuable than money from Paul.
Felix got a message from Paul. He got the most important message anyone can receive and it was a message about faith in Jesus Christ.
Paul's message to Felix made Felix the sin hardened Roman Governor tremble before Paul.
God brought the greatest missionary living at the time of Felix right into Felix's presence, yet Felix procrastinated.
We never hear again of Felix in the Bible after Acts 25 and more than likely he and his wife went off to a Christless eternity.
Today we're taking a closer look at the twenty-seventh chapter of the Book of Proverbs.

This is one of those Proverbs that is not well known or understood. But the message is pretty clear and straightforward. It is a challenge using the physical example of a sloth to teach us spiritual truth. We will use my own grass cutting as a teenager for an illustration.
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
When Paul stood trial before Felix, Felix put off rendering judgment. When Paul reasoned with Felix about salvation in Christ, Felix was under great conviction about his need for salvation, but he procrastinated in believing. There is no record that he ever came under conviction again or that he ever trusted Christ for the forgiveness of his sins.
