Hellwrecker and wreckin’ hell are expressions that come from 1 John 3:8 where the Bible says “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” In the KJV, or Kim Josephson Version, that means Jesus was made flesh to wreck hell! Hallelujah! And isn’t that just exactly what He did? When satan brought sickness, Jesus brought healing, When satan brought condemnation, Jesus brought forgiveness. When satan brought death, Jesus raised the dead! He unstopped deaf ears, made the lame leap for joy, opened up blind eyes, and in every instance thwarted all of satan’s plans. Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy; but Jesus came to give us life, and that more abundantantly! Praise His name forevermore! That’s what it means to wreck hell!

Can we really be hellwreckers? Absolutely. Jesus said in John 14:12-14: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” It is obviously God’s will that the Church be hellwreckers. In fact, that’s why He gave us the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Luke 4:18-19 says “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

When we bring hope to the hopeless, love to the loveless, even just a smile or a word to a lonely soul, we’re wreckin’ hell. When we demonstrate the reality of Christ in our lives by turning the other cheek, or going the extra mile, we’re wreckin’ hell. When we love like He loves, give like He gives and live like He wants us to live, we’re wreckin’ hell. Oh Church, Jesus has given us the ministry of reconciliation and as we get on with the program of turning hearts back to God, we are wreckin’ hell in the best sense of the phrase.

So now you know what it means to be a hellwrecker. If you’re a child of God, you’re called to be one, so crank it up and wreck hell!
