Pastor Greg Laurie has preached a straight up gospel message at his annual ‘Harvest Amerca’ event. Thousands attended the event held at Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Laurie told the vast crowds that while the “last thing that God wants” for anyone is to spend eternity in hell, those who reject Jesus will do so unless they repent.
“The clock is ticking, and before you know it, life could end,” Laurie warned those gathered. “How do you know you’re going to live to be an old man or an old woman? …it’s not guaranteed.” He continued “There’s an afterlife, and according to the Bible, there’s two options: Heaven or hell,” he continued. “Smoking or non-smoking, if you will. Know this: The last thing that God wants is for any man or woman, created in His image to spend eternity in hell. Hell wasn’t made for people, hell was made for the devil and his angels.”
“You can be a good person and go to hell and you can be a bad person and go to heaven,” Laurie added. “Heaven isn’t for good people. Heaven is for forgiven people.”
“Come with your sins, come with your problems, come with your questions, come as you are. He will forgive you, He will accept you, and He will change you,” Laurie said. “Just admit you need God, say you’re a sinner…you can come back to the Lord.”
