If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
God is the same yesterday, today and forever, therefore, he is still casting disobedient children into hell, and will forever more. We were made for His purpose and when we find life without God we will lose our life. God made us for His purpose and we belong to Him. We are the private personal property of God almighty and He can, and will, do with us as His law states. If we lose our life for Him, then and only then will we find life eternal.
Regardless of what one might have been taught in our worldly churches our Holy God cannot be pleased by any person other than the holy or righteous or spiritual.
Romans 8:8 ... So then they that are in the flesh (unholy) cannot please God.
Again ... God cannot be pleased by any person other than the holy!
The holy are the righteous, the future saints, those born of the spirit of God, NOT A BUILDING FULL OF UNHOLY, UNRIGHTEOUS, UNGODLY 'SPIRITUAL SINNERS' having a lot of fun!
II Timothy 3:17
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
God is a demanding taskmaster who requires ultimate perfection. Nothing in this life could be as sacrificially tough and costly as overcoming our flesh and securing holiness, mandatory for a crown, and mandatory for God's holy love.
Our worldly churches has indoctrinated the cross-less masses into believing holiness matters not, for God loves all the little children of the world. They foolishly teach and believe God to be a doting lover of all people and holds an unconditional love for all of mankind, He could never, nor would He ever cast a 'good' soul into hell. This coincides with the worldly church teaching that God loves the sinner but hates the sin. If this were true it would be a dilemma for God but He's God and God has no dilemmas, as He hates both sin, and the sinner.
God loves the covenant keepers and He hates the covenant breakers!
Romans 9:13, As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Mankind is lawfully commanded and legally contracted by covenant
to first prove their love to God,
He will, or before He can love them. We must lawfully prove ourselves true believers, and how is this accomplished? By evidence alone. The law functions on evidence. The evidence of belief is obedience and the evidence of obedience is holiness, and the evidence of holiness is THE POWER AND LOVE OF GOD. Therefore, where there is no power there is no love, for the holy love and holy power of God cannot be separated ... from such turn away.
We must fulfill the law of God before the schoolmaster will bring us unto Christ, otherwise God will never know us, let alone love us. By the Holy Word of God/law, we determine our eternal outcome. We alone are self-responsible for our soul and we will choose for ourselves, heaven or hell. It is not God who puts us in hell but it is our own unbelieving recklessness. John 14:23,If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. If you believe this, heaven will be your home, if not, hell will house you in torment forever .... IT'S YOUR CHOICE!
Jeremiah 17:5, Thus saith the LORD;
Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,
and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
The greatest individual threat to a man is a man.
Natural unholy man has been severely mistaught, as they fail to realize no conversion is required for the natural born unholy soul and body to go to hell, so, we are camped at the gates of hell. Conversely, poles apart, is holy spiritual heaven and the multi-year extensive conversion that must transpire from unholy to holy.
THE BULK OF ALL OUR WORLD'S POPULATION PERISH
John 16:27 ... For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me,
In contrast to the law delivering the obedient unto Christ, He will deliver the unbelieving disobedient unto an angel, and the angel will tightly grasp the frail and helpless individual, soul, mind and body, and fly them across that great impassible fixed gulf, and be they a father, or mother, or son, or daughter, they are a live living being, one with feelings sensitive to a warm loving gentle touch and with a mind possessing the eternal capability to think, comprehend, remember, love, hate, laugh and cry, and the angel will cast them into the darkness of the eternal fires of hell, then turn and flee. And though they pray, beg and cry throughout eternity there will never be deliverance, for God never knew them.
I know you not!
Luke 13:27-28, But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
