Luke 9:56 - "The Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."
John 10:10 - "The thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; but I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
When Jesus spoke these verses, He was not speaking about life in the flesh, as some seem to believe. They have a strong warning that should not escape our attention in that we have an enemy that comes to all with deceiving power, to rob us of our spiritual blessings and take us away from God. He can deceive with lies and false promises, but can not deliver on a promise. He can trouble your flesh in many ways. He can steal your peace and happiness, make you sick with diseases, and even kill your body.
Christ promises abundant life, but He was not promising abundant blessings in this flesh life. Far too many err in forming a belief that He did promise that, and it will always bring disappointment and trouble.
Christ was promising eternal and spiritual life, and that is why God sent Him into the world.
So, when your soul returns to God, it will stand before God in the judgement and He will decide if it lives eternally or is destroyed in the lake of fire. Now, I am fully aware that statement will appear as a red flag and be disputed by many. There are preachers all over the world that are spouting out a misconception that the soul is eternal and can not be destroyed; but I will herein offer scripture to prove and document that is not a truth. Matthew 10:28 - "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both body and soul in hell." Read this from your own Bible.
It is true that God is the only One that creates a soul and the only One that can destroy a soul, but He will judge all souls that will be out of flesh bodies and the righteous ones will be passed into eternal life. But the evil ones will be destroyed and completely burned up in the lake of fire. Yes, they will be eternally separated from God by fire and will never see life again. You are in error, and I feel sorry for you if you think our ever loving God is such a sadist that He would enjoy seeing people suffering painfully forever and ever in horror. No, hell is the place God will quickly burn up the evil souls and they will be gone forever. That is eternal death.
Please don't believe any preacher who might tell you some of your kin or friends are suffering in hell. They are in error. No soul is yet in hell because the judgement has not happened, and it will be after the great white throne judgement before any are condemned to hell. Then God will decide who will live or die. Remember, God is love, and wills the death of none.
