40 DAYS VIGIL WITH PRAYER AND FASTING FROM 29TH APRIL OVER 7TH JUNE, 2020 TITLE “MY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE” HEBREWS 12:29.
Day 4: Saturday 2nd May, 2020.
Scripture:- Revelation 20:11-25
Topic:- The Fire In The Lake
Text:- Revelation 21:8
The Fire In The Lake: God’s Judgment of the Sinner. The fire in the lake is an eternal fire. See Revelation 20:15.
Here is the final destiny and doom of the wicked dead. Here is the eternal dwelling place of all the unsaved, of all who have not believed the gospel of the grace of God.
All the lost of all the ages will be there. All who have preferred their sins to God’s salvation will be there.
All who have procrastinated until for them the door of mercy was closed will be there. All who have spurned God’s grace and in their self-will chose to ignore God’s offer of a free salvation will be there. The dead small and great will stand before God at the Great White Throne. See Revelation 20:12.
No one will be great enough to escape. No one will be too insignificant to be overlooked. Regarding the unsaved. See John 5:28.
Bodies that have been buried for centuries, in the earth and in the sea, shall come forth at the Lord’s bidding. Hades, the world unseen, will surrender the undying spirits and souls of the lost. Body, soul and spirit re-united, the person will stand trembling before the judgment Bar there to be. See Revelation 20:13.
The Greek text of verse (14) reads, “This is the second death, the lake of fire.” The first death is the separation of body and spirit. See James 2:26.
The second death is the final separation of the lost from the God who created him. This place of separation is the lake of fire. It is the place of sorrow immeasurable and of torment eternal.
The Word of God affirms that the unsaved go away to an endless term of conscious punishing.
In Revelation 21:8, we have a partial list of those whose destiny will be the lake of fire. Included on the list are those described as “unbelievers”. They are those who have heard the gospel and refused to believe it. They will be eternally punished in the lake of fire.
Is your name in the book of life? Have you believed the gospel message? Are you saved? Do you know for certain that you will have no part in the doom pronounced at the great white throne?
The Lord Jesus said, your only hope of escaping God’s judgment and the lake of fire is to believe the gospel and by a definite act of faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. See John 1:12; 5:24.
Because God is a loving God, it is not His will that man perish in his sins. The same truth is stated in another way. See 1 Timothy 2:3, 4.
Because these things are true we read about another fire in scripture, a very important fire which we will consider next. See 2 Peter 3:9.
1. I command sinners to begin to come to the knowledge of the saviour henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Any curse of infirmity working against me, die by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Any ladder or pipe supplying evil current into my body, break away and be consumed by God’s consuming fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. I receive divine tonic and vitamins by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5.. My immune system, become unchangeable by any infirmity, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. Yokes and covenants of diseases, break and be consumed by God’s consuming fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. Any programme of the spirit of death for my body, be extinguished by God’s consuming fire, in the name of Jesus Christ .
Have A Blessed Saturday!
