...(10)Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears. (11)And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
(12)Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place. (13)I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing. (14)So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.
(15)Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days. (16)And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, (17)Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. (18)When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. (19)Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. (20)Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. (21)Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul...
...(1)The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying, (2)What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? (3)As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. (4)Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
(5)But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, (6)And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, (7)And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; (8)He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, (9)Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD. (10)If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things, (11)And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife, (12)Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination, (13)Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.
(14)Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like, (15)That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife, (16)Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment, (17)That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live. (18)As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.
(19)Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. (20)The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. (21)But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. (22)All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. (23)Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
(24)But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
(25)Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal? (26)When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. (27)Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. (28)Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. (29)Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
(30)Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. (31)Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (32)For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye...
...(7)So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. (8)When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. (9)Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. (10)Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? (11)Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (12)Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children 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 be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
(13)When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. (14)Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; (15)If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. (16)None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live. (17)Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. (18)When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. (19)But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
(20)Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways...
...(1)What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(2)God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? (3)Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? (4)Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (5)For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: (6)Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. (7)For he that is dead is freed from sin.
(8)Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: (9)Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. (10)For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. (11)Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (12)Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. (13)Neither yield ye your members instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
(14)For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
(15)What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. (16)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? (17)But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
(18)Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
(19)I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. (20)For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. (21)What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. (22)But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
(23)For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord...
...1)There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
(2)For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (3)For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: (4)That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (5)For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (6)For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (7)Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (8)So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
(9)But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (10)And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (11)But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
(12)Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. (13)For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (14)For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (15)For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
(16)The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: (17)And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (18)For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (19)For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. (20)For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, (21)Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God...
...(16)For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. (17)And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; (18)Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. (19)Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. (20)Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: (21)For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. (22)Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. (23)And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. (24)For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?...
I Corinthians 3:10-20
...(10)According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. (11)For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (12)Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; (13)Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. (14)If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
(15)If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
(16)Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (17)If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (18)Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. (19)For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. (20)And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain...
I Corinthians 6:9-20
...(9)Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (10)Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(11)And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
(12)All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. (13)Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. (14)And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. (15)Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. (16)What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. (17)But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
(18)Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (19)What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
(20)For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's...
I Corinthians 10:1-12
...(1)Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; (2)And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; (3)And did all eat the same spiritual meat; (4)And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
(5)But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
(6)Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. (7)Neither be ye idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. (8)Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. (9)Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. (10)Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. (11)Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
(12)Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall...
...(14)For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
(15)But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
(16)This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. (17)For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (18)But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
(19)Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, (20)Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, (21)Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (22)But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (23)Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (24)And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
(25)If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
(26)Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another...
...(1)Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; (2)And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. (3)But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; (4)Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
(5)For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (6)Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
(7)Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
(8)For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (9)(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) (10)Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (11)And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (12)For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. (13)But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light...
...(7)Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, (8)Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: (9)When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. (10)Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. (11)So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) (12)Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. (13)But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (14)For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; (15)While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
(16)For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. (17)But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? (18)And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
(19)So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief...
...(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. (7)For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: (8)But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
(9)But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. (10)For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (11)And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: (12)That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises...
...(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.
(32)But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; (33)Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. (34)For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. (35)Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. (36)For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
(37)For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. (38)Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. (39)But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul...
II Peter 2:4-22
...(4)For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; (5)And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; (6)And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; (7)And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (8)(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) (9)The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: (10)But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
(11)Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. (12)But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; (13)And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; (14)Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: (15)Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; (16)But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
(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...
I John 3:13-24
...(13)Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. (14)We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. (15)Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (16)Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (17)But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? (18)My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. (19)And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. (20)For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. (21)Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. (22)And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
(23)And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. (24)And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us...
I John 5:13-21
...(13)These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (14)And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: (15)And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
(16)If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. (17)All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
(18)We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. (19)And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. (20)And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
(21)Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen...
Revelation 21:1-8; 22-27
...(1)And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (2)And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (3)And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. (4)And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(5)And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (6)And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
(7)He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. (8)But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death...
...(22)And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. (23)And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb the light thereof. (24)And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. (25)And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. (26)And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
(27)And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life...
...(12)And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. (13)I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
(14)Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (15)For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
(16)I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (17)And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
(18)For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: (19)And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
(20)He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
(21)The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen...

Chapter 2: The Operation of Demons
...In the vision that night I saw Jesus and heard Him speak to me, I saw, in a vision form, a woman. I never knew her personally. I had met her one time and had just shaken hands with her when someone introduced us. I immediately recognized her because I had heard her sing at a Convention. She was the wife of a minister. I saw just like you would see a picture on your television. Jesus narrated the story to me. He said that this woman was His servant. She had part in the ministry, but He said that the devil came.
Then I saw an evil spirit come. It seemed to come and sit upon her right shoulder and whisper in her ear. She was a Christian. The devil wasn't on the inside of her, he was on the outside. But he'll work from the outside and try to get to the inside. As Jesus narrated the story He said that this demon told her that she was a beautiful woman, but she had been cheated in life. In the world she could have had fame and fortune and popularity. He told me that she knew that was the devil and she said for Satan to get behind her. He said that that spirit left her for a season. I saw it run off and leave her. By and by it came back again and whispered into her ear that she was a beautiful woman. He told her again that in the world she could have fame and popularity and wealth.
He said that she began to entertain Satan's suggestion. We can learn an important thought here. The only way that the devil is going to be able to get into you is through your mind. Your mind is the door to your spirit. One of his greatest weapons is suggestion. Didn't the devil suggest to Eve in The Garden that the reason God didn't want her to eat of the forbidden fruit was because if she did, her eyes would be opened and she would become like God? She followed his suggestion. So Jesus told me that this woman began to entertain the thought that she was a beautiful woman. She like to think that she was beautiful. The Bible said in Ezekiel, concerning the fall of Satan, that one thing that happened to him when he fell was that he was lifted up in pride because of his beauty. He told me that she began to entertain these thoughts. She felt that she had been cheated in life. She felt that she had been robbed. She felt that in the world she could have had fame and fortune.
Then in the vision the woman became transparent, like she was glass and this thing was in her head like a black dot. Jesus told me that at first she was possessed by this spirit from the outside. She rebuked him at first, but then she began to listen to him and she continued to think his thoughts after him. We're supposed to think God's thoughts. Jesus told me that new she was obsessed with that kind of thinking. He said that it wasn't too late even then. She was still His child. She knew what to do. She could have put that out of her mind if she had wanted to. She could have refused to think like that. But she wanted to think like that. She desired to think like that, so she continued it.
Soon she left her husband and left the ministry and went out into the world. I asked the Lord why He was showing me this. He said that He didn't want me to pray for her. He said that He was showing it to me to let know how demons and evil spirits will get hold of people, even Christians and believers if they will permit them to. I asked Him if He wanted me to cast that devil out of her. She had left her husband and taken up with several men at once. She wasn't satisfied with just one man. He told me that finally this thing got down into her spirit. It got into her heart. I saw it go from her head down into the inside of her. She began to say that she didn't want the Lord Jesus anymore. She turned her back on Him. Before, she hadn't completely turned her back on Him. I asked the Lord if He wanted me to cast that devil out of her. He said that I couldn't cat it out of her, because she wanted it. As long as she wants it that way, it's going to be that way.
Jesus told me that no one, not even He Himself when He was on earth, exercised authority over human spirits. God Himself does not exercise authority over human spirits. He did exercise authority over evil spirits and demons, and any believer in the Church can exercise over evil spirits and demons. But if this human spirit wants the condition to remain as it is, then there's nothing we can do about it. We can't cast that spirit out. I asked Him if He wanted me to pray for her. He told me then not to even pray for her. That surprised me. That came as a real jolt to me. I'd never heard of not praying for people.
I'm one who is a stickler for the Word of God, so I asked the Lord if this was scriptural. He told me to look at I John 5:16 which says, "If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it." I had never heard anyone preach on this before. I had stayed off this one myself. Since I've been a Christian I've always followed this policy. I leave something alone if I don't know very much about it. I started preaching when I was 17 years old. When I first started preaching, all I preached was salvation. That was all I knew. There are a lot of texts that I just leave alone...
...He gave me Hebrews 6:4-6, which is a controversial verse. All of these verses are. But on the other hand, controversial or not controversial, if it's scriptural we ought to face up to it. This scripture says, "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, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 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." I said then that we Baptists always said that this verse just means getting under conviction, not talking about Christians, but about sinners. Or so we Baptists always thought. But Jesus told me that it isn't talking about sinners. He said that it isn't talking about what I call getting under conviction. He pointed out five things for me to notice. Before one could be guilty of this sin he would have to have all of the five things apply to him.
First it said, "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened." He said that was what I called getting under conviction. The preaching of the Word of God enlightens the sinner, as in the case of the prodigal son when he came to himself. Through the preaching of God's Word the sinner is enlightened and seeing his condition, sees himself lost.
Secondly, it says, "and have tasted of the heavenly gift." He said that a man under conviction has not tasted of the heavenly gift. You do not taste the heavenly gift being under conviction, because Jesus said that He is the heavenly gift. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." So, first -- enlightened. And secondly, tasting of Christ, the heavenly gift.
Then thirdly, "and we're made partakers of the Holy Ghost." Jesus said that doesn't mean just to become acquainted with the Holy Ghost and the new birth, but that means filled with the Holy Ghost.
Then fourth, "And have tasted the good word of God." He said that this can't apply to baby Christians. They haven't tasted the good word of God. Peter said "as newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word." Other translations will say, "And have tasted the solid meat of God's Word." He said that it was to be regretted that some believers and Christians act as they do and say things they do. When they're baby Christians, He said that He just doesn't pay any attention to it and overlooks it. He said He does just as natural people do. Jesus pointed out the similarity between physical growth and spiritual growth. He said that baby Christians can't be guilty of this sin. They wouldn't know what the were doing.
The fifth qualification is, "And have tasted the powers of the world to come." Jesus interpreted this part to me as meaning, "And have gifts of the Spirit operating in their life." He told me that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the ensuing gifts of the Spirit is the earnest of our inheritance in the world to come. He told me that this woman was enlightened and she was born again and had tasted of the Heavenly gift and was filled with the Holy Ghost and she had been in the ministry for 20 years. She had enough spiritual growth so that at least wasn't a spiritual baby anymore. Then she had gifts of the Spirit operating in her life. He told me that if she had just been tempted by the devil and overcome by the devil, He would have forgiven her. He said that she didn't commit this because she went off with another man. He said that if she had a 100 men and turned back to Him, He would have forgiven her. That's not it. But Jesus told me that she came to the place without being tempted, without being overcome, an not in a fit of anger and passion, but, deliberately, knowing exactly what she was doing, said that she didn't want Him anymore. That's what this sin is.
"For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 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?" Heb. 10:26-29
Actually, this was written to Hebrew Christians. They were facing this. When they accepted Christ as their Saviour, they were cut off from the rest of their family. The way was hard and they were tempted to go back. If they went back to Judaism, they had to deny Christ. If He is not the Son of God, then His blood is unholy...

Chapter 12: CHRISTIANS IN HELL
...One evening in 2008, suddenly I was instantly translated in my spirit to a part in hell. I could see groups of lost souls chained together. I could see "DECEIVED" written on each of them. I heard these lost souls says, "I was deceived." These lost souls appeared to be hopelessly lost and in tremendous pain.
Jesus explained to me that these souls knew about Him, yet were slaves of sin and died in the bondage of their sins. These souls were deceived into believing that they would still make it to heaven. I saw these lost souls chained. The chain represented the bondage of their sin. "His own iniquities entrap the wicked man. And he is caught in the cords of his sin" (Prov. 5:22).
As we stood in front of a group of chained souls, suddenly a young man cried out, "Jesus! Jesus!" I understood then that Jesus was visible to him. This lost soul was crying out to Jesus, "I served You! Get me out of here!"
His heartrending cries moved me to tears. Jesus looked at him sadly and said, "You lived a life of sin. You claimed to serve Me but lived in fornication. You knew that My Word says fornicators will not enter My Kingdom (I Cor. 6:9)."
The lost soul began to sob aloud, "I thought that was a little sin and You would not mind since I served you full-time." Jesus looked at him and said, "You were deceived."
Beloved, the Word of God calls us to "walk as the children of light" (Eph. 5:8) and to "be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves" (James 1:22). You can call yourself a Christian, yet live a life of sin. If we call ourselves His children, let us also walk in truth...

A Pastor in Hell
Mary K. Baxter testifies to the Lord showing her the lost, tormented soul of a man in an open coffin in Hell, who was once a legitimate Pastor in His Church.
Specifically, the backslidden Pastor had committed the sin of blasphemy of the Holy Ghost
[Transcript: starting from 1:40]
...And as I looked at him, I said "Lord, what did he do to deserve this?"
He said "He used to be a preacher of My Word. He used to have a fine car, a beautiful home, a fine church -- but, Satan tempted him to steal from the church offering, and he did. Then he tempted him a year later to do something else in the church wrong, and he did. And he had the Holy Spirit."
And He said "The Holy Spirit began to talk to him, and tell him 'Don't do these things' but he wouldn't listen. And as time went on and his heart was hardened...he used to preach the true Gospel and he began to compromise My Word." Jesus said "This man had tasted My gifts, he had healed the sick, he'd done many great things in My Name, he had preached the Word in My Name, and he was full of the Holy Spirit -- but the Holy Spirit departed from him, because of the devil entering into his heart -- and he allowed it. And the day come, when the Holy Ghost left him, that the devil entered into his heart, and he'd began to change..."
...And I watched, as Jesus said "I came to Him, Myself. I manifest Myself to him -- and he wouldn't listen. I sent prophets. I sent apostles. I sent, for months and years, I tried to change him, but the day come, he wanted to open up a seminar in town against the Holy Ghost; teach against Him. Knowing better -- he knew better."
And He said "What happened, he was killed in a car wreck when he left the church -- and this is where he is."
And He said "There's absolutely nothing I can do about it..."
And, we just left there crying...

I Went to Hell A Warning You Must Hear...
Former Calvinist testifies of an encounter with Jesus Christ (at 24 years old), in which He took him to Hell in order to see the lost, tormented souls of those -- from his own church -- whom had believed the lies he once taught.
Before the experience ended, he was placed into a tomb in Hell, in which the Lord warned would be his
destination -- if he continued teaching OSAS.
What you're about to hear you have NEVER heard before. I think, maybe, 2 other people have had a similar experience; but, this is NOT a dream, this is NOT a vision.
This is an encounter and visitation of Jesus Christ, and a LITERAL visit to Hell.
When I was 24 years old, all of a sudden there was QUIET, like a stillness or something, while I was sitting on my couch. ...I don't know how to explain it. Then, all of a sudden, Jesus Christ walked through my door. He created matter; He doesn't HAVE to open doors.
He walked up to me and said "Son (very important word). Son. Come with me."
His face was like the brightness of the sun, and I was, as were dead -- John was right. That's how it is. ...His garments were white; like, perfect white. My spirit knew, as I knew, my consciousness knew, and I knew that this was Jesus Christ. My spirit obeyed when He said "Come." [My] spirit said "This is Him. He is God." *whoo*! Right out of my mouth, making it obvious that this wasn't a vision, and I knew this wasn't a dream. So it's not a dream, it's not a vision -- this was literally *whoom!* This is what happens. Sorry. That's what happened.
We went through the earth. I could see the layers of it. He's on my right-hand side. As we go to the earth, I see the center of the earth, and it's a pit, and it's got more to it, but that's what I'm talking about here: it's a pit. And in there, there's people that were in my church -- and they were in Hell.
He that judges a matter before he hears the whole thing is folly. Listen to what I say. No matter how educated or intelligent you are -- listen to me.
I was a Calvinist. I was a Dean at Everlasting-ship [sp?] Ministries, an accredited school where you get your bachelors/masters degree. I taught Greek. I knew, as I studied Greek, that the Greek was REFUTING Calvinism. I knew that men who taught it had to twist it, because I knew that the word "believeth" is a present-tense imperative verb -- you can't connect anything else in the Scripture, such as "shall" and "everlasting life", without connecting it in conjuncture to the word "believeth". But, people twist the word that Scripture says.
For every text there must be a context, or it is a pretext.
In my life I've tried to dumb-down my intelligence because I've scared people by my intelligence. So, I've practiced being as stupid as possible, a lot of times in my life, as I've got older, because I...I was too smart. I've learned that's not even wisdom now, as an older person, because the word wisdom means "wit". So, I don't try to dumb down things any longer. I'm just telling you like it is.
I saw people in my own church TELLING, saying to me, "Pastor John. You told us we couldn't lose our salvation!".
Now this is FOR ETERNITY I'm gonna hear this. There's no place to go. There's no place to run. It's not a TV, you can't turn it off. Your brain doesn't SHUT IT DOWN. You can't fall asleep -- you're forever awake. You fully, completely understand it because, even though you're in a sprit -- you COMPLETELY can hear and see...you're there!
You can't deny it.
Then I, in the middle of this, I'm put into a tomb. The Lord tells me "Son, if you continue to believe what you believe and preach it -- this is going to be your punishment." And I'm put into this tomb. And in this tomb I see, like, a spider. I see, like, a monkey. And...I see a rat. And I'm in this tomb and I can hear BILLIONS of voices -- but, I can ascertain and understand them!
Now, you're frontal cortex where you make your decisions and your cognitive facilities, right? That's where it all happens. It can't process that! Your ears can't assimilate and process all of that. But, when you're out of your body -- you can! So, we can handle, we sometimes may get insulted or condemned by people, or accused, and it hurts. But how about billions of voices cursing you, jeering you, making fun of you? Tormenting you. Lying to you Messing with your mind. Millions of them -- HEARING EACH ONE OF THEM! Understanding each one of them! Each one of those -- *phoom!* Shoots in there! *phoof!* Hits you -- DEEP inside your heart. DEEP inside your spirit. It HITS YOU -- but you can't escape it. It's for eternity! There's no reprieve. You've done the deed. You're there. You lied. You preached a false Gospel. You told people they were eternally secure. Though YOU KNEW, as a person who studied Greek and Hebrew -- it WASN'T FEASIBLE!
You twisted it because you didn't want to hear the truth -- and now you're there.
And there's no way out. You can't say "God, I repent now --I'm sorry! I didn't know!" Because everybody knows the truth You're just twisting the truth. You're twisting it. You can come to a point where strong delusion causes you to actually believe a lie. But I wasn't there. I hadn't seared my conscience. So, I hadn't "gone over" like a lot of Calvinists have "gone over". They've seared their consciences. And outside of a supernatural miracle, they will NEVER, ever make it to Heaven, because they've seared their conscious. ...Their brains are cooked. That pickle's been left in pickle juice too long! And now, it's got the bitter taste of vinegar.
Yeah, I believe a person can probably repent until the time they're gone -- but it's gonna be hard.
I believed in Calvinism. But, any time I studied Greek and Hebrew, I knew that, you really intellectually couldn't do that. I knew you had to be basically illiterate with the Greek to really be a Calvinist, or just a plain liar. But, I still believed in Calvinism, anyways.
So, I'm in Hell -- I see the Lake of Fire. Now, do I see fire? No! ...No, I saw "outer darkness". In outer darkness, there was a lake. I knew it was a lake. I could see that it was a lake. And people were bobbing up and down in this lake. The people that I had DECEIVED, in the Lake of Fire. And they were crying out "Pastor John! You deceived us!". They were in this lake, but there was outer darkness. Remember Hell is outer darkness. The worst thing in the world is darkness. God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. The absence of light is darkness.
God isn't gonna be there! He's not showing up! There's complete darkness there! Talk about claustrophobia! Nowhere to go! Nowhere to run! Complete darkness -- in flames! Being burned alive! No ability to change, repent, "I'm sorry. Fix it!" This is it -- forever! Tormented! Demons cursing you! Lying to you! You're there, and you're there because you've been a liar. You're there because you're a backslider. Or, you're a lukewarm Christian. You're there because you're a false prophet, and you told people what YOU KNEW could not be taught intelligently, articulately from the Greek -- you taught it, anyways -- and you're A LIAR, and YOU KNEW IT! And now God says "It doesn't matter! Nobody will con Me! Nobody can lie to me, and get away with it!"
You're here for eternity.
If you believe in Calvinism. If you believe you can be lukewarm, or you can be a backslider and make it into Heaven -- you better run! You better run, because you won't be able to hide. Or in any rock, when Christ comes in the fullness of His glory. And I've had visions of Him coming back. You'll not be able to hide. You're not gonna have a discussion. It's OVER. ...it's over.
RUN from Calvinism. RUN from sin. RUN to God. Repent, and keep on repenting. Call, and keep on calling. Seek, and keep on seeking.
God bless you.

JESUS CHRIST TOLD ME 'I WILL BURN IN HELL'!! I WAS GOING TO CHURCH FORNICATING! MY TESTIMONY
Fellow believer, Lana, testifies to when she first gave her life to Christ in the church...while remaining in fornication, outside of it. She attributes this to the "Once Saved, Always Saved" motto that she heard preached, which justified her decision to remain in sin.
Lana then testifies Christ spoke to her, warning she'd end up in Hell for her fornication [if she did not repent].
Hey, YouTube. It's me, Lana. I wanted to talk to you guys, today. I really wanted to touch on...really being a true follower of Christ. When I gave my life back to Christ, I was looking toward the Christians; looking at the behavior that they showed. I was looking at the activities that they indulged in; what they did. And, you know, it wasn't until last year I finally realized that there are many that profess to be Christians -- and they're missing Christ by a long shot. And it's unfortunate, because I was one of those individuals.
When I gave my life to Christ...three, four years ago? I was professing Christ from my lips -- but my heart was far from Him. And keep in mind, I gave my life to Christ -- but, when I left that church, I'm thinking "Okay, I'm saved. And I'm listening to that little motto I hear a lot of people say 'Once Saved, Always Saved'".
Do not. DO NOT, for one second, believe that deception, okay?
Yes, Christ never revoked His gift of Salvation. But do WE abuse it and throw it away? Absolutely.
And so, when I gave my life back to Christ, I went back out there, and I was like "Okay. Well, it's done. I'm saved. Christ is gonna forgive me for everything that I do wrong. It's already be won. Once Saved, Always Saved'.
That's what I was thinking to myself.
So, I'm out there. I'm partying. I'm drinking every other weekend. Fornicating. If one relationship doesn't work out, I'm in a new one. Fornicating -- again. Man...pretty much, you name it, I probably did it. And it's unfortunate, because there's so many of us out there who believe "I'm a good person! All I want to do is have fun!". But, you've got to understand: the Word tells us to be in this world, but do not be OF it. And you have to, eventually, ask yourself; you have to ask yourself, "How can I love Christ, but still do all the things that everyone else in the world does? What makes me different from the people who are not saved if I'm still indulging and participating in the activities, and the clubs, and..and .all the sin that, you know, that they indulge in?"
What sets me apart?
That answer is absolutely nothing! Absolutely nothing.
Christ came, and He preached repentance. Understand that, when you repent, it means to beg, to ask for forgiveness. It means to TURN AWAY from your sin! And to try your best not to do it again! It DOES NOT MEAN to indulge in premeditated sin. Meaning: when I say "premeditated", I mean you KNOW you're gonna go do something, and you figure you'll ask for forgiveness later -- after the deed is done.
That's not how it works, ladies and gentlemen.
And that is what I want you guys to know, Christ came at me one day. And, when I say "He came at me" -- He LAID IT on my spirit. And this is what was laid into my spirit:
"Lana. Lana! You WILL burn in Hell for your fornication."
And, of course me, I'm like "WHAT??".
I'm looking around like "Lord?! Anything but that!". You know? I'm a good person. I show up to Church every Sunday. You know...AFTER the club on Saturday. I may be a little hung over, but I'm there. I'm listening. I may not live up to it when I leave this church, but I'm listening to Your Word.
So, with this being said, I really had to...take a step back and really, like, hear what He said:
"Lana. You WILL burn in Hell for your fornication."
Now, understand, there are many of us out there fornicating, and thinking that this one little thing will be overlooked when our God comes back. "He's not going to send me to the hell fire. He's a loving God."
Yes! Yes, everyone. God loves us. Jesus loves us -- which is why He gave us these commandments: to protect us. NOT to make our lives MISERABLE -- but to protect us!
In the Bible, Jesus said "Those who love Me are those who keep My Commandments". I went through the Bible, and I looked up the Commandments, and I realized I was breaking every LAST ONE of the Commandments, except for killing people! And I was thinking to myself "Why, I haven't been loving Christ, at all!" Professing Him from my mouth. Professing Him from my lips -- but my heart was far from Him! I missed Him by a long shot!
And so, the person that I was indulging in fornication with, at the time, I pretty much asked the Lord, I said "Well Lord, if this man that I'm sleeping with is not my husband, and You do not have him...in Your will to be with him, I pray: when I go to this man and tell him that i want to be celibate, so that I may live a life pleasing to the Lord; when I tell this man that I want to be celibate -- give me an answer that is SO BOLD, that when I tell this man, his answer will slap me in the face! Like, I'll know, I'll know your answer by his response."
So I went to this man, and I said "I want to be celibate. I don't wanna have sex anymore, until we are married."
And do you know what he said to me?
Something that I would of never thought this man would have said to me, in a million years.
He said "Lana -- lose my number, and I will lose yours."
Slap in the face...
God delivered! He gave me an answer that slapped me in the face, to where I couldn't deny that I had received my answer!
So, I understand, people, there are many of us walking around here thinking "We're living lives pleasing to God". And it is the ultimate -- the ULTIMATE deception -- that God is going to overlook, what you consider to be your "small sin". That's not the case, guys! We've gotta wake up! We've gotta read His Word. Get into His Word and hear what He says! He's a Just God. He loves you, but He is a Just God.
Many of us will perish because of fornication. You have to ask yourself "Am I willing to give this up? Is this bigger than my God?" Many of us, as young women, as young women, we're laying down, giving our bodies to a man that will hurt us tomorrow, and disappointing our God -- who will never, ever hurt us.
Many man are being told that, "it's tradition to sow your wild oats before marriage." DO NOT listen to traditions of men! They will kill you! Traditions will kill you. Listen to what your Lord and Savior has said. Listen to your God. The God of Abraham. The God of Jacob, and the God of Isaac. Because His foolishness, God's foolishness, is wiser than man's wisdom.
Alright, guys. Till next time. Take care. Be blessed. Repent of all your sins.
If you DO NOT know Jesus Christ. If you do not HAVE HIM as your Lord and your personal Savior -- I beg you today: cry out to Him. Fall down to your knees. Cry out to Him. Give Him a chance.
Stay Rapture ready, guys. Stay in the kingdom mind frame.
Byerly, Jeff (January 18, 2018) A Sad Picture of a Typical "American Church"
Recieved 1-18 through 1-20-18
The Lord spoke this to me through the Holy Spirit:
“The less a man thinks he knows for certain and the less he thinks he has figured out, the more that I can reveal to him about Myself and about things to come. It is of pride to think that you know it all, oh haughty man. I have made man a little lower than the angels until the time of the revealing of My children. No man will ever fully know My mind; you will eternally learn of Me and My ways. Those who think that they have arrived or have obtained great wisdom and knowledge, shall be shown just how little they actually do know. Men shall be humbled out of My mercy, though most will not understand that it is out of My great mercy. All men shall soon see that I AM who I say I AM. I AM the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, but I return as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, who shall exact His fierce judgement and wrath upon the proud sinners, though it is My will that all men would be saved by My blood.
The truth is, most men have never taken the time to ever seek Me and know Me and they know not My ways at all. Millions of men who call themselves by My name never think of Me throughout their week, but make sure they are seen of men in a religious mausoleum that they call a “church” every Saturday or Sunday. The day matters not; what matters is they have never surrendered their heart and never taken time to know Me, though I have been within reach of them their entire lives. They have spoken My name in pre-written prayers and in hymns and songs that meant nothing to them. They shall be judged the harshest.”
Then the Lord showed me a skinny, bitter, bruised, battered, bloody, broken and dirty Man who was laying face down. (The mental picture that I had was much more than the picture below but the expression on his face fits.)
The Lord let me know that this man had called himself a “Christian” and he went to a church that taught him wrongly, but he never asked the Lord himself if these things were right; in fact, he never even prayed. He learned about giving to get physical, earthly prosperity, repeating the “sinner’s prayer,” “Once saved always saved,” and the “Pre-Tribulation Rapture.” He also believed that he and pretty much everyone he knew were “Christians” because of the country they lived in, America. He did not believe that there was anything wrong with America; in fact, he believed that God was going to make America great again because of the president that they “picked.” The Lord had allowed this man to experience severe pain, fear, distress, hunger, and lack of everything that he was used to in his modern lifestyle, yet he was not humbled in his heart. He had hardened his heart and stiffened his neck and he even blamed God for what had happened to him.
Then I saw the Lord Jesus standing behind him calling out to him, yet this man did not seem to hear Him. I saw Jesus stand right in front of him, yet the man did not even acknowledge Him. This man had been deafened and blinded by the things of this world and false teaching in his church. He could not be be awakened because of the great deception he had allowed in his own life. I saw tears coming out of Jesus’ eyes. He had done all that He could for this man.
Jesus spoke once again:
“My call goes out to to everyone who reads this message. Do not be deceived; time is shorter than most men think. Humble yourselves in surrender before Me and repent of your sin and I will forgive you and give you new life that will never end. This must be done with your whole heart, I know when a man means what he says. I urge you to ready yourselves now! No man knows when the kick-off event shall take place and no man knows the day or the hour of My return.
Put the things of this world behind you and receive My Spirit!
I Love You!”
