TITLE: THE ETERNAL DOOM OF A SECRET SINNER
TEXT: EZEKIEL 18:24-26
(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.
KEY VERSE: EZEKIEL 18:30
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.
“What I saw with my two eyes in hell broke my heart and I wept. I cannot describe hell as a mortal man. If anyone gets there, he will tell it better. In hell, I heard the groaning of the damned. This was the second time I went to hell. I heard people crying and confessing the sins they refused to confess here on earth. Many pastors are in hell. Many ministers of the gospel are in hell. Atheists and various categories of people are in hell. No tongue can tell the horror and sufferings of hell.”
Jesus said, “I created them and loved them with an everlasting love. But they hated me; that is why I am destroying them with my everlasting destruction. Go and tell man, if any desires to come to heaven, I Jesus, will give him every grace he needs to come to heaven. But if any desires to go to hell, Satan will immediately give him all the support he needs to be there.”
I saw a brother in hell. He was a member of our Church. This brother was very committed and zealous, but alas, he died with hidden and un-confessed sin and found himself in hell. When I saw him I did not believe he was the one. I tapped Jesus and asked, “My Lord, is this the brother from so and so church?” He answered, “Yes.” The brother began to speak, “I committed fornication and covered it and death came and carried me away.” If a brother of such zeal and commitment could still go to hell, we must fear God and walk with care every day. Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after (1Timothy 5:24). A careless life will take you to hellfire. Hold firm your salvation with fear and trembling.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The greatest torment of a backslider in hell is that he lost the opportunity to be in heaven.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Make me worthy O Lord.
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Isaiah 4-6; Galatians 3
