The road to the portrait of hell in one’s life begins with such innocent steps that the individual “knoweth not that it is for his life” (Prov. 7:23).  A simple young man just went down the wrong road, but the experiences of the road kept getting progressively more destructive.  The writer of Proverbs continued the story:

Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner  (Prov. 7:7-11).

Little did the young man know what was waiting for him at every corner of the street.

Portrait of hell always begins with a first step.

Because the young man failed to make wisdom and understanding the essence of his life, he took the first step down the street to temptation’s house.  It was the first step down “the way of hell” (Prov. 7:27).  It was the first step to the “chambers of death” (7:27).

Heaven and hell, life and death, and Spirit and flesh are all contained in Paul’s statement to the Romans: “For to be carnally minded [literal meaning, inclination] is death; but to be spiritually minded [inclination] is life and peace” (Rom. 8:6).  When the mind is inclined toward God through the Spirit, there is the heavenly life.   However, when the mind is inclined toward the flesh, through the perception of man’s own thinking, there will always be the tortured soul of hell. There will always be a portrait of hell.

Portrait of hell is always the result of man’s mind gone wrong.

Jesus stated:

. . . For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.  And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?  Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth (emphasis mine)  (John 9:39-41).

Sin, death, and hell are always the results of the perception of man’s mind gone wrong.  It is the perception that man can see within himself.

Portrait of hell will always be painted by the brush strokes of man’s mind.

When the hissing whisperer of the perception of man’s moves him out of the heavenly realm, he will then have to experience life only in the perception of his earthly thinking.  The exercise of the mind will always be the designated place of hell.  The anguish and torture of hell is the curse that comes to every mind when the mind itself begins to perceive that it can see (John 9:41).  Again, it matters not where the space or the time of hell may be, the tortures of hell will be experienced always in the mind of man.  The portrait of hell is always painted by the brush strokes of the mind.
