This Week's Sermon ( 9-19-17 )

" The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. "   John 1:29

"And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. "   1 John 2:2


God wanted the fellowship back that He had with Adam and Eve before they sinned...and even moreso.

My friend, God did not choose to become one of His angels who fell with Lucifer to redeem them back to Himself.

The angels who chose to fall with satan are doomed to eternal hell...along with satan.

" Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: "   Matthew 25:41

Satan knows God did not choose to become one of the fallen angels to redeem back to Himself and this is one reason he hates God so much and hates the human race so much and will try to get as many human beings into eternal hell with him as he possibly can before his time runs out.

" Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. "   Revelation 12:12

While satan is no doubt in glee presently deceiving the nations;

" And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. "   Revelation 20:3

the time will come when he will be cast into the lake of fire and burn, without being able to die nor escape, for all eternity and he will have all of eternity to remember and regret what he has done and will have the load of guilt to deal with for all eternity as well.

And not only satan and his fallen angels will be in this terrible situation but human beings who reject Jesus Christ, who is God in the flesh, as Lord and Savior will end up burning in the lake of fire with remembrance of the sins they committed, and will have to live for all eternity with the load of guilt as well.

My friend, everyone that believes in Jesus thinks, including the rest of the world, that everyone is automatically and ultimately going to Heaven because of John saying;

"...Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. "

Jesus did warn that, even though He did die to take away the sin of the world, most of the world will still end up in eternal hell;

" Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. "   Matthew 7:13-14

Keep your faith in Jesus to the end.
