I found the following question(s) were posted online in a Christian forum. This is a great question that I believe a LOT of people have and personally grapple with.
Will God destroy people on judgment day?
Revelation 13:8 – and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.
So what do you think of this passage?
Do you agree this passage is clear, unequivocal and self-evident to the reader: Certain individuals are preordained to be destroyed by fire on the day of judgment?
I think the person who asked the above question also has this verse in mind:
And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire Rev 20:15
Here is what I hear from within based on what I know of God’s goodness as revealed in his Word.
There is much more going on here than we see with our natural eyes and minds.
First, we must understand that God’s fire is a SPIRITUAL fire that is HOLY and not destructive in the way that natural fire is. This is why the “burning bush” was not consumed. God’s fire is refining and purifying removing ALL the impurities in us through trials and tribulations or “trials by fire”. This is our personal “tribulation” and all of us will be “salted” or purified by his holy, cleansing fire.
“For everyone will be salted with fire Mark 9:49
It’s only a matter of “When?” – this age (life of natural body) or the next?Continue reading
This week I find myself back into Revelation and I want to point out some things I am hearing within.
What is the Synagogue of Satan?
They may not be too popular, but I believe the Lord wants us to hear them so we can properly discern the truth. Ultimately, these words are very good news. But, we may have to first change our minds (repent) and agree with God’s very Word and die to ourselves. Once we die to the false self of the outer man, the very Word will feed us life and rivers of living water inside.
First, please know that God means exactly what he says and doesn’t play games with his Word. If he says something, he means it just as it is stated. If what we believe about him is contrary, we have to repent not God. We have to change our mind each and every time this happens. If we are not that flexible, we are in for more “hell” and in need of more “salting” with his Holy Fire. He will continue to “salt” and purify us until we agree 100% with his Word and this is the true repentance he grants us.Continue reading
This morning the Lord has revealed something so deep and powerful again. I must speak it out loud in a message. I will tell this to anyone who will hear the words it is so powerful. I want them to be SET FREE from the bondages of religion. He is putting together a most amazing true picture inside that is beyond words. It’s bigger than we could ever imagine.
But, you cannot believe it.
That is if you follow the gospel of the natural man. This is a gospel that man’s mind has made up, the gospel of religion.
Man is greatly limited in his understanding because he confined to both space and time. This severely limits his ability to understand ANYTHING of God or the spirit realm where there is NO LIMITATION of space or time. So, when the natural mind reads or hears God’s Word and it comes across something that it can NOT comprehend in the realm of space and time, it simply dismisses it as “impossible”. 1 Cor 2:14 This happens in an instant inside us when our outer, natural man hears truth from God. He says in a flash “IMPOSSIBLE!” and dismisses it or argues back.
Well, is ANYTHING impossible with God? Matt 19:26, Mark 10:27 With this in mind, is it possible that God can give eternal life to all people?
Here is a classic example that he keeps revealing to me over and over. It involves what God says is true right now at this exact moment. When this occurs, the natural mind can’t understand how it is possible and thus, dismisses it in UNBELIEF.Continue reading
