A CHRISTIAN CAN NOT AFFORD TO BE A COWARD

Revelation 21:8

 

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

 

 

LESSON

 

The sins mentioned here typically characterize unbelievers, the other group in contrast to overcomers. While these sins do mark some believers who follow the dictates of their flesh, they more generally identify the lost. That the unsaved are in view seems clear, since “their part” will be in the Lake of Fire. Since “the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” still exists after the passing of the present heaven and earth, “hell” is probably not in the center of the present earth, nor is it connected to this earth spacially. Therefore it will exist separately from the new heaven and new earth and the New Jerusalem. Even though this passage does not say that sin will be absent in the Eternal State, it seems quite clear that there will be none, since the consequences of sin will be absent.

 

Sometimes God’s children possess a timid heart and refuse to or are afraid to stand up for God’s word. Some , because of sin, temptation, or unbelief. Others just refuse to stand up for truth. Being afraid to speak up for truth leaves you in bondage to sin.
