Christians Who Failed To Make Heaven Will Face Greater Punishment In Hell Fire
Text: Luke 12:41 “Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 AND THAT SERVANT, WHICH KNEW HIS LORD'S WILL, AND PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, NEITHER DID ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”
Men and brethren, a lot of us today are playing with our eternity. Most people who are in the church today have become so ‘religious’ that they have concluded their membership of such a church have already given them heaven on a platter of gold, and therefore irrespective of what they do and use on their body, heaven is already guaranteed.
With this mindset amongst us brethren, you now see people who are willfully disobeying the word of God being made comfortable in their disobedience through the messages of ‘eternal security’ being preached to them by their pastors. What a deception!
The Bible says we should be ready to revenge all disobedience, when our obedience is fulfilled already 2 Corinthians 10:6. To this end brothers and sisters, we are to correct people who are living in disobedience to the word of God amongst us 2 Timothy 3:16-17. This is because a lot of them are living in disobedience without ever knowing it, and the few that knows it is hardened against the truth by their pastors.
This they do with the ready arguments they usually present to you when being confronted with the bitter truth of the word of God. Some of them are quick to tell you ‘judge not’, ‘we are under grace’, ‘there is therefore now no condemnation for those in Christ’, ‘these are none essentials’ and such like. However they always failed to realized that you are by the grace of God removing them from the wrath of God that awaits the children of disobedience in hell fire Colossians 3:8. Halleluyah!
To get a clearer picture of the above teachings, our text declared “that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes” Luke 12:47, has painted a glooming atmosphere already for the supposed Christians that will find their selves in hell fire when they die in their disobedience. I hope you know that there’s nothing like ‘beating someone’ in heaven, it is only obtainable in hell fire when the demons (fallen angels) and Satan himself will pour their anger against you for joining them there, after you had earlier abused them on earth. I hope you also know that hell fire was only created for Satan and his angels and never for human beings Matthew 25:41.
So immediately you disobeyed the word of God, just like Satan was casts out of heaven for rebelling against God, you automatically take the place of Satan hence you are now condemned to hell. May the Almighty God deliver your soul from your hell fire inflicted punishment in Jesus name. Amen.
As for the sinners that never had the knowledge of Jesus Christ at all in their lifetime before they die in their sins, although they will still be punish in hell fire by Satan and his demons, their punishment is however light as compared against those that called themselves Christians but still ends up in hell fire Luke 12:48. May this never be your portion today in Jesus name. Amen.
My brothers and sisters, if you want to serve God please do so with all zeal cleaning your body, soul and spirit of any sin and worldliness. The Bible says God will not hold the person that take His name in vain ‘guiltless’ Deuteronomy 5:11, therefore you cannot serve God according to your own heart commands against the word of God. You better check yourself now of any disobedience is in your life against the word of God and quickly repent from it.
If you are a woman wearing trousers, opening your hair why praying or ministering, painting your face with makeup, fixing weaving and attachment on your head, using any type of jewelry and all other seductive and satanic things on your body, know that you are playing with an unquenchable fire in hell Mark 9:44. This is because you are rebelling against the word of God with your two eyes wide open and as such, no more offering for your sins again Hebrews 10:26. Please repent before it is too late.
THE END OF THE CHRISTIANS WHO FAILED TO MAKE HEAVEN WILL BE WORSE IN HELL FIRE
2 Peter 2:17 “These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
20 FOR IF AFTER THEY HAVE ESCAPED THE POLLUTIONS OF THE WORLD THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, THEY ARE AGAIN ENTANGLED THEREIN, AND OVERCOME, THE LATTER END IS WORSE WITH THEM THAN THE BEGINNING.
21 FOR IT HAD BEEN BETTER FOR THEM NOT TO HAVE KNOWN THE WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAN, AFTER THEY HAVE KNOWN IT, TO TURN FROM THE HOLY COMMANDMENT DELIVERED UNTO THEM.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.”
Brethren the Bible says ‘it would have been better for you not have known the way of righteousness at all (not to have being a Christian at all), than to know it but you decided to do your own thing’. Friend if you can comprehend the gravity of this verse above, you will surely know that the Christianity you are taking so lightly and complacently is far more than what you think it is. Look the Bible says ‘don’t deceive yourself because God cannot be mocked, for you will surely reap whatever thing you sow, whether to the flesh or to the Spirit’ Galatians 6:7-8.
Have you ever taken into consideration the weight of the word of God by Our LORD Jesus Christ that says “many be called, but few chosen”? Matthew 20:16. Do you think that it was an error that it appeared that way in the word of God? Why not choose to walk on the narrow way so that you will be among the few that will make heaven? Matthew 7:14.
Brethren the wicked and all nations that forget God shall be turned into hell Psalm 9:17. Do not think that God has special interest in you even if you are a ‘big time pastor’ because He said, “I have sworn by my holiness, that, LO, THE DAYS SHALL COME UPON YOU, THAT I WILL TAKE YOU AWAY WITH HOOKS, AND YOUR POSTERITY WITH FISHHOOKS” Amos 4:2. If you are really afraid of this God who is a consuming fire Hebrews 12:29, you need to be afraid of hell fire too because it is the destination of all disobedient children Matthew 25:41-46. Do you want to end up there? The choice is yours Deuteronomy 30:19.
IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN HELL FIRE AFTER SO MANY MESSAGES IN THE CHURCH, WHO WILL YOU BLAME?
Hebrews 10:22 “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
Brethren if you continue in your ‘wilful disobedience’ to the word of God, know that there’s no more sacrifice for your sins, since you are crucifying the LORD Jesus Christ again afresh and subjecting Him to an open shame Hebrews 6:6. Please you should understand that no part of the word of God will ever fall to the ground without fulfillment Matthew 5:18.
Therefore make all effort to obey all the word of God by His own grace, whether it is convenient or never convenient for you Ecclesiastes 12:13. You should equally remember that you only have today because tomorrow is never in your hands Hebrews 4:7, neither can you tell what will become of you tomorrow Luke 12:20. The appointed time for your salvation is now Luke 19:9.
THE DANGER OF BACKSLIDING
Hebrews 6:1 “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3 And this will we do, if God permit.
4 FOR IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO WERE ONCE ENLIGHTENED, AND HAVE TASTED OF THE HEAVENLY GIFT, AND WERE MADE PARTAKERS OF THE HOLY GHOST,
5 AND HAVE TASTED THE GOOD WORD OF GOD, AND THE POWERS OF THE WORLD TO COME,
6 IF THEY SHALL FALL AWAY, TO RENEW THEM AGAIN UNTO REPENTANCE; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”
Dear playfully Christian brothers and sisters, majority had backslided already without them ever knowing it, and the danger it creates is the fact that the Bible says it is impossible to restore you back again to the faith. The atheists of today are good example.
Do ask yourself:
Why am I always bitter when being preached to concerning removing jewelries, attachments and weavon, miniskirts, high heel shoes, trousers as a woman, makeups, and other devilish things from my body? Why do I always hate those that tell me the bitter truth of the Bible but loved those that sweet coated it for my liking? Why do I always yell at people whenever they preached to condemn my chosen ways of life and lifestyles? Why am I quick to say that God only look at the heart and not what I am wearing and using on my body? Why do I still feel comfortable in using and doing what the Bible speaks against even after seeing and reading it myself from the Bible? Why do I somehow feel some sense of eternal security as if I am already in heaven at the moment? Why do I sometimes think that God is not capable of sending anyone to hell fire again since Jesus Christ had already died for us?
My dear friend, the answer to these questions and others is the fact that you have since backslided long time ago, and your heart of flesh have been made strong by the devil never to ever see your sins as sins again, which then prevent the new spirit of God from taking charge over your life Ezekiel 36:26. You are no longer in the faith 2 Corinthians 13:5, though you still wear the garment of Christianity but you have since denied its power 2 Timothy 3:5.
Cry unto Jesus Christ for mercy now in repenting, confessing and forsaking all your sins so that you WILL HAVE MERCY and obtain forgiveness from God Proverbs 28:13, and be converted, so that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord Acts 3:19. You can only do it right now because there is no repentance in the grave Hebrews 9:27.
Also why is it that most pastors today don’t condemn what the Bible condemned? Why are there very few pastors in the world today that teaches and practices true and total holiness for themselves and their church members? In fact why do some pastors claimed to be a holiness teacher and preacher and yet, they cannot mention the ungodliness in their churches when preaching? Why are there so much churches and yet, so much evil and wickedness in the land? Why? Why?? Why???
The interests and greediness for filthy lucre 1 Timothy 3:8, and the reason that men no longer endure sound doctrines 2 Timothy 4:3, are some of the things responsible for this terrible situation in the churches today. I pray that the Almighty God will sanitize His church in Jesus name. Amen.
Romans 13:11 “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”
Brethren the night is far spent, let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, to put on the armour of light because the day is already at hand Romans 13:12. Our redemption is already at the door Luke 21:28, when the righteous will hear the voice of the trump of God and shall be changed 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, and shall be caught up to meet the LORD in the air to remain ever with Him 1 Thessalonians 4:17. LET US THEREFORE PUT AWAY FROM US EVERY DEFILEMENT OF FLESH AND SPIRIT, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD 2 Corinthians 7:1 BECAUSE, WITHOUT HOLINESS NO MAN SHALL EVER SEE THE LORD Hebrews 12:14.
Remember God is a holy God 1 Peter 1:15-16, and the HIGHWAY to getting to His kingdom of heaven is the way of holiness, which is only accessible by those whose names are written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE Revelation 21:27. Isaiah 35:8 “AND AN HIGHWAY SHALL BE THERE, AND A WAY, AND IT SHALL BE CALLED THE WAY OF HOLINESS; THE UNCLEAN SHALL NOT PASS OVER IT; BUT IT SHALL BE FOR THOSE: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
God bless you.
