Do You Believe In Me?
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:10)
There are so many great verses in the Bible about God’s love or His promises that we could claim to be our favorite verse. I think that Revelation 20:10 is one of my top 3 of favorite verses.
Throughout history there have been many woes and sorrows. How sad Adam and Eve must have been when Cain killed Abel. Later, all but 8 souls died from the flood. The sadness of Lot, when all his family and friends, save his two daughters, were destroyed by fire and brimstone. Of modern times, we have the sinking of the Titanic, the bombing of Pearl Harbor and many other wars where thousands of family members have been killed. We now see children as young as 1 and 2 years old bald from chemo and radiation. All kinds of mental illness is around us. Parents killing children and children killing parents. We’ve seen God taken out of school and quickly out of government and soon they will try to take Him out of our lives. It used to be the rebel who was the outsider, now the outsiders are the ones who stand for Christ. The family is being ripped apart by sexual ‘freedom’, children rebelling, and bossy wives. When will it all end?
Now take a trip to Heaven with me if you will. God calls for an assembling of all the Saints. We are sitting in the stands waiting for our Lord to appear. There is much chatter wondering what will happen next. Then walks out Jesus clothed in white. Everyone starts singing, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty. Praise to the Mighty King of King! He stands on the 5o yard for all to see. Jesus raises His nail print hands for all to be silent. Then as everyone gasps, out walks Satan. Still no one says a word as Satan walks up to Jesus. Then Satan’s trembling body begins to bow.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” (Philippians 2:10)
Just then the ground begins to quake and open. The flames of Hell are exposed. As Satan stands, Christ lifts his nail print hand and Satan is cast in to Hell forever and ever. The Saints rejoice as they again sing praises unto the LORD of Heaven. Oh yeah, I’ll be sitting first row on the 50 yard line. AMEN!
Now there is also a verse, I believe, is one of the saddest.
Not all are Saints.
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15)
These also will spend eternity separated from God. There will be more of them then Saints. Time is getting short. Once we leave this earth, it will be too late to tell others about the saving blood of Jesus.
This New Year, let’s make a commitment to ourselves and to God, that we will tell others about Jesus. There is plenty of room at the table, but not many who are willing to leave it to invite others to dine. Remember Satan is alive and well, for now, on the planet earth.
No one Believes In Me Anymore – (Satan’s Boast)
A Song by Keith Green
Well my job keeps getting easier, as time keeps slipping away
I can imitate the brightest light, and make the night look just like day
I put some truth in every lie, to tickle itching ears
You know I’m drawing people just like flies, cause they like what they hear
I’m gaining power by the hour, they’re falling by the score
You know it’s getting very simple now since no one believes in me anymore
Heavens just a state of mind, my books read on your shelf
Oh have you heard that God is dead, I made that one up myself
They’re dabbling in magic spells and get their fortunes read
You know they heard the truth and turned away and followed me instead
I use to have to sneak around, but now they just open their doors
You know no one’s watching for my tricks, since no one believes in me any more
Everyone likes a winner, with my help you’re guaranteed to win
Hey man you ain’t no sinner, no, you’ve got the truth within
And as your life slips by you believe the lie that you did it on your own
But don’t worry, I’ll be there to help you share a dark eternal home
My job keeps getting easier, as day slips into day
The magazines, the newspapers print every word I say
This world is just my spinning top, it’s all likes child’s play
You know I dream that it will never stop, but I know it’s not that way
Still my world goes on and on, always stronger than before
I’m going to make it dark before the dawn since no one believes in me anymore. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!
1 John 5:13
