We will be judged by the Sword at the border of Israel
Ezekiel 11:10 -
Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
People refuse to abide to the Word of God and follow what their heart leads them for they think in their hearts what will happen? When there are problems around they come running to the Lord but over a period of time they overcome the disasters and turn back to their filth. Then there are the others who think these problems are a blessing to build them in the Lord.
Today the Lord is speaking to these people who refuse to hear Him. Jesus said when He came as man that He has not come to judge. He said when He comes again in His glory His Word with judge His flock (both sheep and goats) and His Word is True.
People wake up. The greatest or most dangerous weapon in the whole of creation is not an atomic or nuclear bomb or any chemical weapon but is the Word of God. In Heaven too not only the mighty Angels but even the Cherubs who are many thousand times mightier than the Angels also fear the Word of God. The judging Word of God in Heaven is seen as a flaming sword. When God wanted to guard the lower Heavens from the upper Heaven He put a flaming sword to the east of it. It does not mean that there is a real sword but just His Word of warning and none of the fallen angels or even Satan will dare cross the line.
The problems, troubles, pains or disasters that we face on earth are not even a small fraction of what the Word of God would do when Jesus comes again to judge all mankind. It does not mean only those who exist during that time will be judged but all (it means ALL since Noah) will be judged before Him by His Word. Hell is many thousand times better than the lake of sulphur which awaits those who know Him and still reject His Word. Like Jesus said be hot or cold but those who are lukewarm will experience His greatest wrath. Nothing will happen now, when you die you will sleep in the Lord but on the Judgment Day when we all stand before His Throne we will face the Sword. Those who abide by His Word would enter Heaven as true Sons of God and the rest go to the lake of sulphur.
What I tell you, you may have never heard it from any preacher or evangelist or teacher of the Word, but these are hard words for those hard in heart.
Dear people stop being fence sitters it is better you reject Jesus Christ and die as an unbeliever than call yourself a believer and refuse to believe or abide by the Word of God. As an unbeliever you will go to Hell (prison) and suffer only for the wrongs you have done for the rest of your spirit life (which is a few thousand years). But if you being a believer refuse to abide by the Word of God then in the lake of sulphur the punishment is not according to your wrong doings. It is called sulphur not because there is sulphur there but like the chemical has the property which does not let man overcome it, so is the suffering in this place. Every foul smell man soon or later overcomes but the smell of sulphur he or she will never overcome. A person working in a sulphur mine for years suffers the same he did the first day he started work there.
Please sit for even a few minutes and let these words sink into your heads, it will cause you to tremble in your spirit. That is why Paul said work for your salvation with fear and trembling. Our work does not require us to be righteous; our work just requires us to surrender to the Lord and to His Instructions along with His help. When we surrender to the Spirit of God and to His Word, it is the Lord Who will make a way to help us keep His Word and He also gives us the strength required to take us through it.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, people do not know the power of your Word therefore do not fear You. Lord, work on these stiff necked people and bring them to know the Truth. By your grace open their eyes and harden not their hearts to your Instructions. May today be a day greater than the times of John the Baptist when people by the thousands repented and turn to You...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
