"Judgment - What If Some Did Not Believe?" by Pastor Peter Thomas

Judgment  -  What  If  Some  Did  Not  Believe?



     What if some did not believe?  Shall it make the faith of God without effect?  Evil men and seducers are waxing worse and worse.  I believe that it is going to be just as God said.  Just as in the days of Noah ... as in the days of Lot ... time is winding up on this old world.  (See  Genesis 6:6-8, 17-18,  Genesis 7:1, 21-23,  Genesis 19:1, 12-17, 24-29).  God is going to punish evildoers.  There is a judgment coming on this world and God is going to burn up everything.  (See  Isaiah 24:19-20,  Isaiah 51:6,  Job 14:12,  Isaiah 65:17,  Hebrews 10:26-28,  2 Peter 3:10-13,  Revelation 21:1-5).  This earth and its sin is going to dissolve with fervent heat.  Glory to God!  Sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34).  I would that you reckon that you are going to have to give account to God for the deeds you have done and for your words spoken.  (See  Ecclesiastes 12:14,  Romans 2:5-11,  John 5:29,  2 Corinthians 5:10,  Matthew 12:36-37)



     Man got away from the purpose of God in the Garden of Eden.  The Eternal Spirit created us to be holy and perfect.  (See  Leviticus 20:7,  Leviticus 20:26,  Romans 12:1-2,  Matthew 5:48,  Deuteronomy 18:13,  Psalms 19:7,  2 Corinthians 7:1).  Jesus Christ, God manifested in the flesh, came to redeem mankind unto himself by the shedding of his own blood on the cross (John 3:16,  1 John 3:16,  Acts 20:28).  Repent and turn to God.  Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  Save yourselves from this untoward generation.  Cry out to God for mercy and do works meet for repentance (Acts 2:38, 40,  Matthew 3:8,  Acts 26:20).


     The devil, whose name is  Satan  (not  Lucifer),  is a deceiver.  (See  also  1 John 3:8, 9,  Psalms 37:38).  The end fate of the devil and his angels and everyone who disobeys God is they are going to be turned into the fire for a specified, God-determined time and then utterly destroyed by God through that fire.    I  am  not  a  proponent  of  the  doctrine  of  endless  torture  or  eternal  conscious  torment.    Scripturally, it serves God no purpose.  But God is going to turn up the fire and burn up everything ungodly.  The wages of sin is death, not eternal fire.  God has no pleasure in the death of the sinner.  The soul that sinneth shall surely die. 



     Satan is not in charge of what has been commonly referred to as hell.  The devil has an end fate, final destruction.  The same fate awaits all that are ungodly.  This is all going to happen on earth, in the earth, not a medieval, dark age underworld (See  Proverbs 11:31  and  Job 1:7).  


     Note that the word  ‘forever’  is  eon (also  aeon), meaning an unspecified period of time.  The Hebrew word  olam  (Strong's  #  5769) and its Greek derivative  aion,  aionios,  aionion  (Strong's  #  165  and  166)  means a space of time, belonging to an age, until the end of the age,  not  an unending length of time.    God  will  never  immortalize  sinners.  God  will  never  immortalize  Satan.    That is a doctrine of devils.  It does not come from the Word of God.  That devilish doctrine comes from Greek mythology.  1 Timothy 6:14-16 tells us in part of “ ... the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: ... who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; ... Who  only  hath  immortality, ...”.  The ancient Egyptians also believed in the underworld and the god of the underworld, but God told the children of Israel to be circumspect, make no mention of other gods; after the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do (Exodus 23:13, 24, 32, 33,  Leviticus 18:3,  Jeremiah 10:2)


     Forever  had an ending in the case of Jonah (Jonah 2:6,  Jonah 1:17), who cried from the belly of hell (the  whale’s  belly)  (Jonah 2:2,  Matthew 12:40).  Both in the cases of the servant and Samuel, forever meant until they died (Exodus 21:6,  1 Samuel 1:22,  1 Samuel 25:1,  1 Samuel 28:3)No,  Dante Alighieri’s  hell  does not last forever (forever,  as  we  know  it  -  in  terms  of  endlessly).  The devil shall be burned  forever  and  ever  until he’s all gone.  The fire is  unquenchable,  meaning the fire is not quenched (non-extinguishable) until it has done its job (See  Revelation 20:10,  the  devil’s  fate,  along  with  death  and  hell).  Malachi 4:3 says, “And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.”  Hell  is an old English word mistranslated from Hebrew  (Old  Testament)  and Greek  (New  Testament)  into the English language.  Thirty one (31) times in the King James Version Old Testament  hell  is translated from  sheol.  In the King James Version New Testament, twelve (12) times  hell  is translated from  gehenna,  ten (10) times  hell  is translated from  hades,  and one (1) time  hell  is translated from  tarturus.  Out of the fifty four (54) times these four (4) original words were translated thus, they generally meant  grave.  In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word  sheol  means grave.  In the New Testament, the Greek word  hades  means the grave and sometimes a place of punishment.  Jesus used the Greek word  Gehenna  to refer to The Valley of Hinnom, a very steep ravine southwest of Jerusalem.  Here they burned garbage, the carcasses of unclean animals and even cadavers of executed criminals were thrown into Gehenna fire.  Note what Jesus said,  Where  their  worm  dieth  not,  and  the  fire  is  not  quenched  (Mark 9:44, 46, 48).  Understand that if their bodies ended up being thrown directly into the fire, then they were consumed by that fire.  However, if their bodies landed on a ledge or steep ravine, their putrefying bodies were then infested with maggots or worms, which consumed all the flesh parts - leaving only skeletal remains.  Their worm died not and the fire quenched not until all the refuse matter had consumed away (Mark 9:43-48).  It was the city dump.  


     Strong’s Greek  #  G4663: skolex (pronounced sko'-lakes); Word: skwlhx; Origin: of uncertain derivation; a grub, maggot or earth-worm: -- worm.  Strong’s Hebrew: H7415 (rimnah)  /  H8438 (towla) define as: a worm, specifically that kind which preys upon dead bodies.  The last word used one (1) time in the New Testament is  tarturus,  meaning  place  of  darkness



     Sinner man, Mr. Worldly Wise, what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?  Ms. Know It All, Mrs. Deceived, what are you going to do when Jesus comes to take vengeance on this old world?  There is a fire kindled by God Himself and unless you repent according to  Acts 2:38,  He is going to cut you off by fire without mercy!  (See  Deuteronomy 32:22,  Romans 11:22,  Hebrews 10:26-28,  James 4:12).  For our God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24,  Deuteronomy 9:3,  Hebrews 12:29).  Alright, there you have it.  The earth is going to be burnt up.  Fire also purifies.  The Lord is going to set the whole earth on fire.  Then there will be new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.  Old John 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.  John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, and God dwelling with His people (Revelation 21:1-7)



     Dear reader, God’s only plan of salvation for you is that you repent of your sins,  get  baptized  in  water  in  the  name  of  the  Lord  Jesus  Christ  for the remission (removal) of your sins and get the Holy Ghost, do works meet for repentance and you live a holy, sanctified life.  Without this, you are lost.  This  is  the  Gospel.  I present, you investigate.  If you heed my counsel, it’ll do you good.  Consider what I say.  You must answer to your Creator, now or later.  Obey  Acts  2:38.
