WHATEVER it takes - those that select to return wholly to Christ will sever before themselves from anypoint and also anyone who reasons them to sin (Mark 9:43-49). Hell is the righteous judgment of the one true holy God and awaits all who are not 100% in Christ as soon as they die (Ezekiel 33:12-13).

You are watching: Nothing on earth is worth going to hell for

“Thus, thou child of guy, say unto the youngsters of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous have the ability to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall sudepend live; if he trust to his very own righteousness, and also commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.” Ezekiel 33:12-13

As we watch clearly in the over message, the Almighty judges your life by your existing state of heart and all, yes all, of your past righteousnesses are not remembered if you are not completely bowed down under His holiness and also Lordship at this minute.

Do we still wish to specify fact based upon how it fits our very own lifestyle rather of how our eternal Judge provided it to us in His Word? What place is finest for the long run?

We all understand and have the right to attest to the Holy bible fact that there is opportunity “to gain the pleasures of sin for a season” and yet “she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.” (Heb. 11:25; 1 Tim. 5:6) Sin brings spiritual fatality and righteousness by the blood of Christ and allowing power of the Holy Spirit brings life and also blessings untold now and forever before (Rom. 5:17; 6:23; 8:13-14).

Security Check Point

Still not certain wright here you presently are through the LORD? Want to know? The Word claims that “Without confidence it is difficult to please him.” (Heb. 11:6) Heart belief that conserves the soul is obedient to the One in whom its trust totally rests. If you are ideal through God, you are literally active and also fruitful in the adhering to things He commanded:

Boldly interacting His salvation to others, calling them to repent and also think upon Him or perish in hell – because you love Him and also them more than self (Mk. 16:15-20; Phil. 2:3-5).

You are mirroring charity and love to every one of the LORD’s kids (Jn. 13:34-35; Gal. 6:10; 1 Jn. 4).You help others in any type of means possible (1 Cor. 10:24; 13:1-8).You are abstaining from all appearances of evil or temptation to sin (Rom. 13:14).You are living a life of godly repentance and the forsaking of any kind of thought, word or deed that offends His holiness (Ps. 51; Mk. 9:43-49; 1 Jn. 1:6-10; Rev. 3:19).You are fasting, praying and examining His Word (Isa. 58; 2 Tim. 2:15).You are crying out to Him for brokenness and also a clean heart (Ps. 51; 139:23-24; Matt. 5:6, 8; 1 Tim. 1:5).You offer all within your means to further the cause of the Gospel (Prov. 11:25-26; Phil. 4:15-16).You are abolishing and continuing to be clear of any type of idol of the heart as you burn through flaming love for Jesus Christ (Eph. 5:5-9; 1 Jn. 5:21; Rev. 2:4-5).You are currently crying out and also trying to find the soon rerotate of the Savior for His few who are on the narrow road that leads to life (Matt. 24-25; Tit. 2:13-14; James 5:5-7; 1 Jn. 3:1-3; Rev. 22:20-21).

The lack of these things from one’s life testifies to the backslidden state of the heart (Prov. 14:14). Such a perboy is under the judgment of a holy God who will shortly return “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be puniburned with everlasting devastation from the existence of the Lord, and also from the glory of his power; When he shall involved be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that think (bereason our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” (2 Thess. 1:6-9)

“They profess that they understand God; yet in functions they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and also unto eincredibly excellent occupational reprobate.” Titus 1:16

According to God’s Word, judgment is constantly based on a person’s works bereason a person’s works are a clear manifeterminal of his inner heart and also confidence. No perkid will certainly be judged on his mere profession of Christ however on the life he lived (Matt. 12:36-37; Jn. 5:29; Rom. 2:1-7, 13; 14:12; 1 Cor. 3:13-15; 2 Cor. 5:10; Eph. 6:7-8; Col. 3:25; Tit. 1:16; Rev. 2:23; 20:12; 22:12).

Who Are We Lying To But Ourselves?

“And hereby we perform know that we understand him, if we store his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and also the fact is not in him.” 1 John 2:3-4

Only A Few Will Make It

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and also wide is the means, that leadeth to devastation, and also many kind of there be which go in thereat: Since strait is the gate, and also narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and also few there be that uncover it.” Matthew 7:13-14

Frifinish, How many times have actually you been warned? How lengthy will you harden your heart? How long will certainly you deny Jesus Christ while embellishing yourself with temporal pleacertain and comforts which have actually lulled you right into a deadly stupor and sleep? Hell awaits. LORD attract us to You and also approve holy repentance!

“Woe to them that are at ease in Zion.” Amos 6:1

There is not one unconditional blessing in the magnificent economic climate. Every blessing, consisting of everlasting life in Heaven and also absent hell, hinges upon the obedient faith (the just kind of authentic saving faith) of the recipient of the message.

“But let him ask in faith, nopoint wavering. For he that wavereth is favor a wave of the sea propelled through the wind and also tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any point of the Lord. A double minded man is unsecure in all his ways.” James 1:6-8

If one is not this moment crucified through Christ, he has denied Him and also is serving the false god of self which indisputably incriminates one as an idolater, worthy of eternal damcountry in His holy site. Those that do not surrender their will certainly to Christ in entirety hearted, first love devotion are not His and also are divinely decreed as unworthy of His holy Heaven:

“But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be as soon as named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but quite offering of many thanks. For this ye understand, that no whoremonger, nor unclean perboy, nor covetous man, that is an idolater on, hath any kind of inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and also of God. Let no guy deceive you through vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the kids of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.” Galatians 5:5-7

The dismal punishment for picking the selfish sinful pleasures in this fleeting life will certainly never finish.

“And they that are Christ’s have actually crucified the flesh through the affections and also lusts.” Galatians 5:24

“No Man”

“No guy have the right to serve 2 masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will certainly host to the one, and also despise the various other. Ye cannot serve God and also mammon.” Matthew 6:24

Regardless of his previous fellowship through Christ, the one that decomponents from the LORD, loses out.

Friend, are you serving Christ or self? According to Jesus, the answer is either one or the various other – it is an imopportunity to serve more than one grasp. Is it really worth it to “despise” Jesus Christ while serving self interests? To refuse outideal and blatant obedience to Him is to deny Him and also forsake all divine mercy.

“They that observe lying vanities forsake their very own mercy.” Jonah 2:8

To observe a teaching which supposes that one have the right to live exterior of the will of the One who is Salvation and still go to His holy Heaven is absurd at ideal.

Frifinish, are you going to “cover,” or confess your sins? Will you forsake, and flee from sin – that which displeases the LORD Almighty?

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have actually mercy.” Proverbs 28:13

Charles Pray writes: “So many kind of desire to hide their sins, particularly those who favor to show up Holy on the exterior while inside they are dark, unholy ministers of the flesh. They have actually end up being a product of their own desires. Dear Lord, please lug them earlier to their initially Love–Jesus! Aguys.”

Like the male that possessed a heart after the LORD, we must quickly confess any kind of sin we could commit – “For I will certainly declare (confess) mine iniquity; I will certainly be sorry for my sin.” (Ps. 38:18)

Be not deceived: If suffering the points of this fleeting civilization is more important to you than literally fellowshipping through and also performing the will of God, you have denied and also defied Him and are in love with the people and also are the foe of God (1 Jn. 2:15-17). If one loves this current people and the points in it, he is living in a state of fatality – the state of spiroutine adultery. Such a perboy will certainly go to the eternal dwelling area of all those that make themselves the enemy of God – regardmuch less of what one professes via his mouth:

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, understand ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity via God? whosoever therefore will certainly be a friend of the human being is the opponent of God.” James 4:4“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the human being, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:15

Will You Obey The Truth?

One might say “Hey I made peace via God long ago. I am secure and also safe, based upon that one confession and act of faith toward Christ.” Nonsense! “Once conserved constantly saved” is a sinful and hellish cop-out! If you will miss out on hell and also be in Heaven, you have to trash this lie like the cancerous pester that it is and march forth unreservedly in obedience to the shortly to rerotate LORD of all lords, whom “out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that through it he should smite the nations: and also he shall Rule them via a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and also wrath of Almighty God.” (Rev. 19:15)  

Neither Jesus Christ nor His holy apostles taught such a license to sin doctrine. In Holy Scripture, such a doctrine is connected especially with “ungodly men” who “rotate the grace of God into lasciviousness” and also “deny(ing) the only Lord God, and also our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 4)The Son of God told His very own 12: “He that endureth to the end shall be conserved.” (Matt. 10:22) What explanation does this statement from “the Almighty God” need? (Rev. 1:8) I suppose none to the hoswarm hearted. Any attempt to describe ameans or around such would certainly be subversive, sinfully wicked and evil manipulation.

Listen to what Jesus tells the saints at Smyrna:

“And unto the angel of the church (not the lost) in Smyrna write…Fear namong those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you right into priboy, that ye might be tried; and also ye shall have actually tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto fatality, and also I will certainly give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” Revelation 2:10-11

Our LORD’s words below are of course constant via every one of Divine Writ. Also continual is the complete and also purposed ignorance of so many who need to neglect volumes of texts like this to make their false grace message palatable. Here are 2 phrases that particularly stand out in His message of warning to these believers in Smyrna and also His disciples now. When you read these watch if you watch problems here. See if His blessing of eternal life has actually conditions attached:

“be thou faithful unto fatality, and I will certainly give thee a crvery own of life.” (v 10)

“He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second fatality.” (v 11)

Why would certainly exceptionally believers be warned right here by Christ if tright here were no opportunity of them losing out? Is Jesus a lunatic or did He location conditions upon the final reception of His salvation?

We should choose to “endure sound doctrine” and not rotate aside to fables if we are going to be with the Truth Himself in eternity (Jn. 14:6; 1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 4:1-4). I recognize that these truths are hard fact and also yet they are the exceptionally truths of the One we will certainly be judged by on that Day (Isa. 30:10; Rom. 3:4). So, we all make the alternative to disregard or wax over these Holy bible truths, or challenge them and also loss level upon the mercy of the LORD we so desperately are in perpetual need of.

Did the very Son of Man not indiscriminately level a significant warning concerning readiness for His return? Jesus forewarned that all those who were at one time in His kingdom would not make it to eternal glory:

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any kind of time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (over indulgence), and drunkenness, and also cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares (suddenly, without warning). For as a snare (trap) shall it come on ALL them that dwell on the confront of the totality earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye might be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall pertained to pass, and also to stand before the Son of guy.” Luke 21:34-36

Will you be “accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall involved pass and also to stand prior to the Son of man?” How deserve to you recognize if you are ready?

Here are the primary elements of this all-important passage in Luke 21:

“Take heed to yourselves” – take individual responsibility for your life and also all that you think and do.

“Lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (over indulgence)” – stop overeating, overindulgence and also reveling in this fleeting world; fast and pray regularly.

Do not live in “drunkenness” – be sober and perform not come to be intoxicated via wine, strong drink or spiritual deception

Do not be caught up in the “cares of this life” – count Christ the supreme Prize of your whole presence and sever before yourself from anypoint in this people that does not contribute to this all-consuming pursuit.

“Watch” – never enable yourself to doze off or autumn asleep. Remain on guard at all times and also let not any kind of sinful thinking have actually preeminence over your life.

“Pray always” – ceaselessly commune with the Savior. Live moment to moment in fellowship via Him.

Denying any assumed or activity that doesn’t draw you closer to Christ is essential in preparedness for His glorious return.

That overcoming believer that endures to the end of his trial will certainly receive the blessed crvery own of His righteousness (James 1:12). Now is the hour. Today is the day – to throw earlier the veil that blinds us and also binds us to that chain of darkness!

Jesus told us that He came “To open up their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they might get forgiveness of sins, and also inheritance among them which are sanctified by confidence that is in me.” (Acts 26:18)

Jesus Christ came to grant us redemption and also complete forgiveness, transferring us from all the power of darkness.

“Who hath ceded us from the power of darkness, and also hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have actually redemption with his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14

Make no mistake: If we carry out not draw nigh to Him in repentance of life and cultivate a heart after Him, darkness will inevitably overtake our lives.

Be deceived no longer friend, if your life is not lassist dvery own before Christ, your eternity is sealed by your self-serving idolatrous decision to deny the nail-scarred Savior. If He is truly LORD of your life, He is reigning supreme in all you think, say and also do. He is risen! Rejoice and give glory to the One who bled for your sins on Calvary’s cross and climbed from the dead.

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever before a male soweth, that shall he also gain. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh enjoy corruption (eternal damnation)…” Galatians 6:7-8

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16

If you haven’t heard this type Gospel communication, it may be time to flee for your life and also from the wolf in charge of your existing regional church and discover a true servant of Christ who preaches the Word! We must bathe and gird ourselves in His holy reality and also become surrounded with those who are fervently seeking His challenge. There will certainly be no excusage in that Great and also Terrible Day.

Most churches now are mere playhouses for the leaders and those that attfinish (2 Tim. 4:1-5). Entertainment is the order of the day, not true biblical Christianity which looks for to glorify God specifically the way He told us to in His valuable Word.

According to God’s Word to us (Ezek. 33:12-13), all of your past fruit or relationship via Christ is null and also void (forobtained by God) if you are not submitted completely to His glorious Lordship at this moment. If you refusage to lay it all down and follow Jesus in fact, on that Great Day of Judgment He will certainly provide you what you decided on earth – to live separated from Him. The one who stays his earthly life outside of an intimate abiding in Christ, deserve to intend to be separated from Him for eternity in the lake of fire where the thick, horrid and also ferocious flames of the literal ocean of fire will certainly torment his helpless, mindful soul forever. Hell is for keeps. This eternal prikid of fire is the point of no rerevolve and also we should all take into consideration that damcountry is the eternal home of all that are not completely submitted to Christ, the only One that deserve to rescue the depraved soul from the flames of the domajor of the damned.

If one reading these words is currently prepared to be completely right through God, he have to bow his head and heart and cry out to the One who loves him and also was crucified to save and also bmuch less him. Never mind the slightest questioning or excuse – ARE YOU READY TO LAY IT ALL DOWN? OR, will you revolve amethod and also forsake what is perhaps your last contact and also possibility to make things ideal via your Maker and also Judge? To refuse to completely come to repentance upon reading these words, is to kiss the entrances of Heaven and revolve and militantly march via the entrances of hell.

“Seek ye the LORD while he might be discovered, contact ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his means, and also the unrighteous male his thoughts: and also let him rerevolve unto the LORD, and he will certainly have actually mercy upon him; and also to our God, for he will certainly abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 

Your Prayer Of Complete Surrender And Repentance:

Father in Heaven, I have actually sinned against You grossly and also have no one to blame other than myself. I have actually rebelled and done points my means and not Yours. Divine Father, I hasten to repent. I now beg You in this incredibly prompt to forgive me and cleanse my spirit of all the iniquity and sin I have actually committed.

From this moment forward I will certainly never before be ashamed of You again yet will procase Your salvation to others as I eagerly look for Your shortly return. In the name of Jesus, Amales.
