When Jesus returns to the earth at the end of the Tribulation period He will crush and destroy the enemies of God as He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Yes, God is a God of love, but He is also a God of Justice and Judgment. God must judge sin because God’s nature is Just. Jesus was glad to go to the cross because He loves us, but He had to go to the cross because He is Just. The cross is where Love and Justice meet. Jesus Himself went through the winepress as He took the judgment and wrath of God upon Himself as He suffered and died in our place, or on our behalf. The Bible speaks of Hell and the Lake of Fire as being eternal. God takes no pleasure in sending someone to hell, but rather everyone that goes to hell chooses to go there themselves. God gives us a free will and says to the sinner, “thy will be done”, or you are free to go your own way, even if it leads you to hell. Hell is a freely chosen identity apart from God that goes on forever.
