Satan tries to discredit the Word of God and minimize the importance of turning from one’s sin to the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan does not lack for false teachers to assist him in his deceiving practices. Far too many today teach a no-judgment concept that, in the end God and Christ are eternally good and would not allow their prized creation to suffer for an eternity in a place like hell.

The marvels and blessings of heaven are so magnificent that it is a great tragedy and a loss just to miss seeing that marvelous place. However, according to the Bible, just missing heaven means going to hell.  Unfortunately, the Bible teaches that the lake of Fire and Brimstone is absolutely eternal and that the populace of that Lake will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

Revelation 14:12   12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

(This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.)

 

Revelation 14:13     13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ”

“Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

 

In the end Jesus will judge you for your choices and He will either include you in His Book of Life or exclude you. It’s your choice first then it is His choice later.

Always keep Jesus in your heart and on your mind.

God is testing you every day and has given you the right to make your own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
