What prevents sinners' hearts and lives on earth from becoming hell?



When God sentences to hell those who have fought against His common grace, why is He in one sense, rewarding them with that which they desired?



Read the description of hell found in:

Revelation 14:10

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.

What does the expression "without mixture" mean? How does this relate to the absence of God's common grace?



Man's condition is directly related to the type of grace he receives from God. This truth is illustrated in the following chart.



When speaking of God the Holy Spirit and His work, as the Spirit of life and grace, we must clearly maintain distinct differences between His common and saving graces. While both result in life-giving and life-maintaining blessings, those of common grace are only temporal and pertain to natural life. The blessings of saving grace are eternal and result in spiritual life.

Seven important differences between common and saving grace are listed in the chart on the following page.
