    Unbelief

    But the fearful, and unbelieving,......shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone - Revelation 21: 7.

    We find in this fearful catalogue of sin and crime against God, unbelief put alongside the most flagrant iniquity. Observe, and do not forget it! -
    the same condemnation that awaits the abominable, the murderers, the whoremongers, the sorcerers, the idolators, is reserved also for the
    unbelieving. Do not ever think of unbelief as a trivial sin, when God puts it in such an awful catagory of crime.

    Let us look at this terrible indictment and argument. Unbelief limits the power of God, and limits the power of man; unbelief paralyses testimony,
    and makes us deaf to the voice of God; unbelief is a permanent forfeiture of blessing, as when Esau bartered his birthright for a mess of pottage,
    and could not get back what he had sold, at any price whatsoever. You may lose your life's opportunies and privilages, and even God cannot give
    them back; for he cannot restore the lost hour, the wasted year, the mis-spent life. What unbelief has forfeited, no power can give it back......

    There is but one thing to do with unbelief: for ever abandon it! Whatever else you do, solemnly covenant with God that you will believe His Word,
    trust His Son, yield to His Spirit; that you will step out upon His promises, and venture something for His sake, without regard to feeling, and with
    a single-hearted resting upon His immutable Word. Trust it absolutely, for the subduing of sin, for the answering of prayer, for the dispersion of
    darkness; and the triumph of faith will also be the victory over sin; the triumph of prayer, the emergence of the soul out of darkness into the
    conscious light of God.!
    Jesus said "I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE"......Without the WAY there is no GOING, without the TRUTH there is no KNOWING without the LIFE there is no LIVING....Thats what Jesus said.

    Have to dissagree on this one .RJ. did we all not reject the message of the cross before salvation was ours..YES / did we all knowingly reject His love before salvation..YES /, Did He willingly accept us and write our names in the lambs book of life YES./.even though we walked in darkness and in our own wisdom God still found forgivenss enough to accept us as we were ,,soiled broken and unloveable there is always Grace at the cross ,unconditional and free for the asking ..id say we have all been pardoned ,,,,,Rev

    Whomsoever has a two fold meaning : it is all inclusive to any who believe upon The Lord " they shall be saved " there is no limitation to the sin that the love of The Lord won't fix If any choose to accept ( Murderers, homosexuals, liars ,adultery and the list goes on ) Whomsoever is exclusive also ! Only those who accept Gods gift of Grace and mercy will forgiveness be applied .but I tell you this if there was room at the cross for Saul of tarsus ( Paul the apostle ) there is room for anybody who follows...Rev

    We as Christians need to be careful that we don't make Those lost in sin feel as if they are not redeemable ! God judges alone and dosent need my help to do so ! We should instead treat the lost as though they have a place saved for them at the table of Grace ! You're seat is waiting ! ,,,,Rev

    Rev T.S. Perkins, I can only assume you are a "Univeralist"...in the end, you believe that everyone will be saved.
    • Explain this: Matthew 12:31-32: “And I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”
    • You can't have it both ways!
    • ALL sin, for anyone is forgiven at the cross but only to those who recieve the forgiveness. What will "not be forgiven" above... is rejection of God's grace and you die in your unbelief!
    • Yes God loves all (the sinner) the same, such is the beauty and perfection of God's grace. All have the right to be called a child of God, Atheists too but, of course, when they are saved, they wouldn't be an Atheists would they?
    • Again, if you die in your UNBELIEF, that is the unforgivable sin!
    " I'll see you here or I will see you up there or I will see you in the air"!.....Beam me up , Lord!

    I think the unforgivable sin is not believing that the cross is biig enough to cover anybody IF they chose to allow .now by universalist you mean I believe in a universal God then call me guilty , if you mean I believe in universal grace yes guilty as charged , ! How can I serve a God that says whomsoever and follows it with but not you ! Really ? If we choose to turn from our condemning ways that are the nature of us all and ask God to forgive us HE DOES NO MATTER HOW DIRTY WE WERE OR WHO WE WERE ....we are now saved ,reconciled and made whole before almighty God ....now the word also tells us and warns us to avoid those that claim Christ but deny the power there of ! The cross is the power of God unto salvation the Holy Spirit is what fuels it and thee Lord God Himself leads all ! ..love ya bud. ....Rev
