Those Practicing Lawlessness Will End In The Fire
"Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Matthew 13:40 What is happening in the world today should not surprise us, because it was foretold in the Word of God. Jesus characterized "the end of this age" with the word, "lawlessness." It is astounding that that is the one word above all that correctly depicts this time in history, for that is exactly what is taking place right now worldwide. All that is good is now under attack and being rejected, and all that is evil is being promulgated. How aptly does the Scripture warn about this very thing - pronouncing woe upon it: "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" Isaiah 5:20 This is the age in which laws are actually passed to bring in lawlessness, to oppose the Word of God, and to severely punish anyone who cites the Word of God in opposition to the ones who demand freedom from it. It is now demanded that women can murder their unborn but full-term children, and it is now demanded that all approve perversion of all kinds, transgenders, homosexuality with all of their agendas, under threat of great retribution to those who won't. God is stripped of the honor of being called the Creator, while the "theory" of evolution (and it is only a "theory") is demanded to be taught in all the schools from kindergarten through college. The laws of the land that protected our borders have been disregarded, so that anyone, including terrorists, have come into the country freely, and not only that, but are granted all the benefits they demand. That point of lawlessness is something no one would ever, EVER, have believed could happen in the US. Total lawlessness. Enemies protected. Citizens forbidden to oppose it. Only in this generation has America allowed Muslims, those who worship a foreign god, to take positions of authority in the government. The agenda is obvious, and few understand that. America has become the land of lawlessness, as is most of the world in this generation. We single out America because America has had the Word of God freely, so she is judged more severely. Jesus chose his words well when he spoke of this generation, and he showed what the end of it will be. Those who practice lawlessness will be "cast into the fire" where there is such suffering that the people there will know only wailing and gnashing of teeth. These are the words of Jesus, and many will find to their dismay that his words were accurate. Rarely these days do you hear sermons about hell. Why? Because that kind of preaching won't fill the pews - and empty pews means less money coming in. No, the churches of today preach "your best life now," rejecting all mention of sin, of judgment, of hell. People are led to believe that all roads lead to heaven for anyone who is sincere. That is a damnable heresy. "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." 2nd Peter 2:1 This is the age of deception, the age of apostasy, the age of the false church, the prophesied church of the false prophets and false teachers leading the multitudes into hell. The only thing this multitude hates is ...the truth, and anyone who dares speak it. vs 2: "And many shall follow their pernicious ways, by reason of whom THE WAY OF TRUTH SHALL BE EVIL SPOKEN OF." Exactly! But there are a few chosen by God to refute those damnable heresies, and speak the truth hoping to wake some out of their fantasies and lead them to repentance. "Repentance" has become a bad word in many churches. But repentance is the way to salvation. God is "not willing that any should perish but that all should come to REPENTANCE." 2nd Peter 3:9 Come to repentance, lest you perish. The word "repentance" might scare you, but it is one of the happiest things a person can do. God's heart is open wide to anyone coming to him in repentance, no matter how dark that life has been. You cannot imagine even now the peace that fills the repentant heart, and the joy that becomes his as he is embraced by the Father. The many and the few: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are MANY who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are FEW who find it. Matthew 7:13-14 Let every person choose wisely the gate he enters.
