The Wicked and Disobedient

Often times we talk about the wicked people of this world as the ones who will eventually end up in an eternal hell. Well, that is certainly true. But don’t forget that the Bible also tells us that not only will the wicked go to hell but also the disobedient. In 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 the apostle Paul writes: “in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power” How sad it will be to be lost for an eternity in hell because we did not obey the gospel of Christ. No matter how good we are morally, no matter how much we are respected and liked by men, our end will still be the same as those who murder, commit fornication, homosexuality, and steal. Yet most people do not even think about this. God’s Word is very plain in this area, His Word is certain. When one does not obey the gospel of Christ he is considered an unbeliever. In Revelation 21:8 it addresses the unbelievers along with the wicked. It says: “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

I think of the prisons today that are being filled to capacity with the worst of criminals, to include those that have been found guilty of murder, sometimes more than once, along with other terrible crimes. I do not want to be with those types of individuals for an eternity! Would you? If you have not obeyed the gospel of Christ, then unfortunately you WILL be with them. Obey the gospel of Christ today before it is everlastingly too late!
