ALL those who do not diligently, daily study God’s Word have told Him He’s not important enough to them! They’ve said “You are not worth putting first Jesus.” He’s a second class citizen to them. He’s not their “first love” – That is, Jesus is not their first and supreme priority. To this Jesus says they must “repent” to be saved into glory. Read Revelation 2:1-7. Lukewarm is Hell Bound
Backsliders part of the judgment (v6):
“I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;
6 And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.” Zephaniah 1:2-6
COMING divine judgment will include the lazy and “lukewarm” – “the men that are settled on their lees”…
“And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.” Zephaniah 1:12
ALL it takes to go to hell irrevocably, is to die in a lukewarm state (Revelation 3:15-6). Jesus was speaking to the Laodicean church and not the world. This is even more Bible proof that OSAS/perseverance of the saints are full blown, soul damning heresies. You on fire? You better repent immediately, lay down your life, and cry out to the LORD to baptize you with the Holy Ghost. The lake of fire awaits.
I’ve been talking to a church going guy for months now whom I found out today believes OSAS. I brought it up and gave him much Bible that contradicts this evil lie. Regrettably this is all too typical of counterfeits in America, produced by the false church. This man has no desires to serve God in his life. His whole “Christianity” consists of going to church on Sunday morning. Sad since this has and is sending millions upon millions to eternal damnation.
Are you confessing Christ or are you denying Him due to being ashamed? “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38
Who’s true in your personal life?
“Let God be true and EVERY man a liar.” Romans 3:4
Letting God be true simply means letting Christ – His Word rule your thoughts and life and no one else – no other mere man, beginning with yourself. The LORD has magnified His Word even above His own name (Psalms 138:2). Meditate upon this truth beloved.
We must ask the all-important question as to who truly is the final authority in our personal lives (thoughts, will). This is where the battle is won.
“Valiant for the truth” – Are you – yes YOU – “valiant for the truth”? In their backslidden condition, Jeremiah the prophet anguishes over God’s people …. “And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 9:3) He cites them for not being “valiant for the truth” which is a clear indication that someone is no longer right with God – they are lukewarm and will be rejected from eternal glory with Christ if they do not repent before it’s too late (Revelation 3:15-22).
Want to be on fire for Christ? Here’s a list of 5 things to do, beginning now:
IN THIS LAST HOUR, WHEN YOU SEE THE VILEST OF SINNERS …. Please know that they are closer to being saved than the self righteous religionists that surround us who claim to be Christians …. most who think they are saved today in America are going to hell. They said a prayer in the past and their false pastors have misled them to believe that due to attending “church” they are secure. Nonsense. That’s not what Scripture teaches.
To the self-righteous religionists of His day and our day, Jesus said:
It’s time to repent for real …. and when one does, his life will change! If not, one hasn’t yet repented (Matthew 3:7-10).
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40
— YOU WILL NEVER ACCIDENTALLY LEARN GOD’S WORD. NEVER MIND the excuses. You’ve used that worn out garbage long enough. It’s time for you to truly repent and when you do, your whole being life will build around the WORD of God and nothing else. ANY person who has a “I’ll get around to it” attitude and life concerning searching, studying, and doing God’s Word, is apostate – outside of the kingdom of God.
