Many people in our society believe God will treat everyone the same and that every person will go to the same place after they die. The Bible tells us otherwise. Exodus 8 demonstrates that God treats people differently. God warned the Egyptians that He was going to bring death and destruction upon the Egyptians but that He was not going to bring it upon the Israelites. And then He did exactly what He said He was going to do. In Matthew 25, Revelation 22, and Romans 10 God warned us that we will spend eternity in the lake of fire unless we confess that Jesus is the Master and believe that He rose from the dead. Based on God’s past actions, we should believe that God will do exactly what He said He is going to do.
