God's Promise To Cast Lost Sinners Into Hell

Image
Revelation 20:11-15, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire . ” Not all of God's promises are positive. In our text passage God promises to cast all Christ-rejecters who die in their sins into the Lake of Fire. This is the “second death.” The first death is when our body can no longer survive due to age, disea

God's Wrath And Coming Judgment Upon The Bob Jones University Cult

Galatians 3:1-3, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?   Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? ” Galatians 6:7-8, “ Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap .  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Their damnation slumbereth not! The demonic Bob Jones University (BJU) camp in Greenville, South Carolina and their thousands of complicit graduates are of the Devil. They are guilty in God's sight of preaching another gospel of Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation). BJU are guilty of preaching a misunderstanding of repentance, requiring people to forsake a lif

God Loves Me

Galatians 2:20, “ I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me . ” The most amazing truth that I have ever learned is that GOD LOVES ME. We all hear that, but so few of us really believe that God loves us. Our text Bible verse from Galatians 2:20 says that the Son of God LOVED ME and gave Himself FOR ME. The ultimate expression of someone's love is to lay down one's life for them. One of my favorite Bible passages in found in Romans... Romans 5:6-10, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.   But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us .  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through h

1st John 5:4, Faith Is The Victory That Overcomes The World

1st John 5:4, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” God gives us a promise in the Bible that we can overcome this horrible world.  1st Corinthians 15:19, “ If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”  1st Thessalonians 4:13, “ But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.” The lost and dying world are just that... LOST AND DYING! They have no hope of a better afterlife. If all there is in life is what we see today, and we merely die and cease to exist, then we are hopeless. I would hate to think that after this miserable and troublesome life, after seeing all the suffering and pain and killing and destruction, that everything ceases to exist. Thankfully there is an afterlife. John 16:33, “ These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye sh

Revelation 20:6, God Will Make Us Princes, Priests And Kings To Reign With Christ

Revelation 20:4-6, “ And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them : and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years .  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. ” This is an amazing passage of Scripture rich in doctrine. The apostle is taken in a virtual Time Machine of sorts you could say, and sees a heavenly future glimpse of thrones. Do you know who he sees sitting upon those thrones dear reader? Why, if you are a child of God, it is you and me friend! The h

Romans 10:9-13, God's Promise To Save Them That Believe

Romans 10:9-13, “ That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus , and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed .  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.   For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved .” This is one of the most debated passages of Scripture. I have heard much heresy taught by unlearned preachers from this passage. I love something that Pastor Curtis Hutson said: “A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one.” That is one of the best quotes I have ever heard. Without argument, Romans 10:9-10 is definitely an obscure passage of Scripture. Many Christians debate over t
