TEXT: Revelation 22:12-21

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Free State of Glory (Part 60)

Dr. Walvoord and Dr. Zuck of Dallas Theological Seminary said of this passage, “While on the one hand an invitation is extended to those who will listen, a word of warning is also given to those who reject the revelation of this final book of the Bible. A dual warning is given against adding to it or subtracting from it. How great will be the judgment of those who despise this book and relegate it to the mystical experiences of an old man, thereby denying that it is the inspired Word of God. Rejecting the Word of God is rejecting God Himself. And those who deny His promises of blessing and subtract from His truths will receive His judgment and will have no part in the tree of life or access to the holy city. One further word of testimony was then given: Yes, I am coming soon. To this John replied in a brief prayer, Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. With this tremendous revelation completed, a final word of benediction was pronounced. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. This expression, so common in other New Testament books, brings this final word from God to an end. For those who believe that Christ in His first coming provided salvation, there is the wonderful promise of His coming again to bring full and final deliverance. As the book began by introducing a revelation of Jesus Christ so it ends with the same thought that He is coming again. Probably no other book of Scripture more sharply contrasts the blessed lot of the saints with the fearful future of those who are lost. No other book of the Bible is more explicit in its description of judgment on the one hand and the saints’ eternal bliss on the other. What a tragedy that so many pass by this book and fail to fathom its wonderful truths, thereby impoverishing their knowledge and hope in Christ Jesus. God’s people who understand and appreciate these wonderful promises can join with John in his prayer, “Come, Lord Jesus.”

In Revelation 22:20, we have the final words of Jesus in all of the Bible. John introduces Him as the one who “testifieth of these things.” In case anyone doubts the contents of the Revelation, John is saying that it is Jesus himself who bears witness to what is in the book. Jesus Christ, the Alpha and Omega of History, says that these things are true. If you can’t believe Jesus, whom all of the Old Testament leads to and whom all of the New Testament speaks of, maybe there is no hope for you.

This statement is followed by Jesus’ own words: “Surely I come quickly. Amen.” The Greek word translated as “surely” is “a primary particle of strong affirmation.” Coming from Jesus, it denotes an absolute, ultimate truth. “Surely, I am certainly coming again.” From the Garden of Eden onward, history looked to the coming of Jesus Christ. And from His ascension onward till today, the present and the future look to His second coming. Robert Mounce said, “At the very close of the book is the confession that the answers to the problems of life do not lie in man’s ability to create a better world but in the return of the One whose sovereign power controls the course of human affairs.”

And the sovereignly powerful Son of God is not just coming again, but He says, “I come quickly.” Don’t you love when things happen quickly? No one likes waiting. But, even though Christ says He is coming quickly, millions of Christians have had to wait. The word translated as “quickly” means “speedily, suddenly, or without delay.” Scholars have stated that this word is meant o show the manner of Christ’s second coming rather than the time of His coming. When Christ comes, it will happen in a snap, speedily or swiftly. There won’t be a long process. There won’t be any time to get ready or to get out of the way. When Christ comes, He’ll be here, everyone will know it, and many won’t be prepared for it.

Christians, whether the time of Christ’s return is today or two hundred years from now, the only appropriate response is John’s: “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Amen means “so be it.” It is our affirmation of Christ’s declaration. We want Him to come and are glad to hear that He is coming quickly.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him before He comes and you have no time to change. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The Free State of Glory, Part 59


TEXT: Revelation 22:12-21

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

The Free State of Glory (Part 59)

In our last message, we talked about how the warning against adding to or taking away from God’s Word applies not only to Revelation, but to all of Scripture. God selected and spoke through the people He wanted to deliver His message to us Anyone who claims a new revelation or an update of the old revelation is in violation of this warning. Proverbs 30:5-6 says, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”

Though the plain teaching of the Word of God should settle the issue for true believers, there are some who amassed large followings by claiming that their words or words revealed to them are on the same level with God’s words in the closed canon of Scripture. People such as Joseph Smith of the Mormons, Mary Baker Eddy of the Christian Scientists, or Ellen G. White of the Adventists. Now, we don’t deny that God speaks to his people in special ways today. However, because God is immutable (He doesn’t change), nothing He says today will contradict, add to, or take away from what He said previously. Like Himself, His Word is eternal. It is as if what He wrote two thousand years ago was written today.

But for some, that is not good enough. False prophets like Carlton Pearson and Rob Bell are on the rise — one teaching that everybody will go to Heaven, and the other that nobody will go to Hell. And the consequences are real: the latter had a New York Times bestselling book promoting his heresy and the former has a movie about his journey into false theology coming out on Netflix this April. Millions are being exposed to these teachings, and thousands will accept that that is actually what the Bible says. That is why true followers of Christ must not tolerate people in their midst who play fast and loose with the Word of God. The world needs the rigid truth of God’s Word now more than ever along with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Now, if you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, believe what the Bible says about Him and place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin. Allow me to show you how.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell.

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Free State of Glory (Part 58)

In this day and time, when many leaders in our churches claim to have new revelation from God, this stark warning from Jesus at the end of the Revelation is very much needed. While God will speak to His servants’ hearts in fresh and new ways, He will never contradict His Holy Word or lead someone in a way that is contrary to the spirit of the Bible. Preachers, teachers, and theologians who claim the Bible must be interpreted differently for our modern times are leading people astray and will be subject to severe punishment from God.

Another question that some have raised is whether or not the warnings of Revelation apply to the entire Bible. It would seem obvious that the answer is yes. But here is what John MacArthur said about it: “If you can’t add anything to Revelation, you can’t add anything to the Bible either. God either breathed it out or He didn’t. The words are either God’s words or they aren’t. When a preacher is preaching, what he says is either biblical or it isn’t biblical. And when he doesn’t say what the Bible says, it isn’t of God because you can’t add anything to the Bible. There is no more inspiration and one of the great heresies today is that there are people getting more revelation from God! All the revelation in the New Testament is completed, the canon is closed, the biblical writers are already identified. There aren’t any more writers, there aren’t any more apostles. That settles the issue.”

Though that may settle the issue for true believers, there are some who amassed large followings by claiming that their words or words revealed to them are on the same level with God’s words in the closed canon of Scripture. People such as Joseph Smith of the Mormons, Mary Baker Eddy of the Christian Scientists, or Ellen G. White of the Adventists. Now, we are not denying that God speaks to his people in special ways today. However, because God is immutable (He doesn’t change), nothing He says today will contradict, add to, or take away from what He says in the past. And, true followers of Christ will realize that God speaking to them is a privilege that should spark humble gratitude, not an opportunity to lift themselves up to the level of the Holy Spirit-inspired writers of Scripture.

Now, if you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, believe what the Word of God says about Him and place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin. Allow me to show you how.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

The Free State of Glory (Part 56): Better Days Ahead, Part 5

From this passage, we have looked at the invitation of Jesus Christ and the Spirit to “come.” And we have looked at the responsibility of the Church, the Bride of Christ, to broadcast that invitation to the world. Now, the Christ of Revelation speaks directly to those who will hear this message. He says, “Let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

Imagine an unbeliever reading the message of Revelation without any context. He is likely to come away from this book with the impression that God is supremely wrathful toward his enemies. But tucked away at the end of this book is the invitation to “Come.” Just “come.” No qualifications. No jumping through hoops. Jesus invites anyone who hears His words to come to him. Those who find themselves parched in this world and thirsty for something more are given an even greater urging. “Let him that is athirst come and take the water of life freely.”

Dr. John Walvoord writes, “This is the wonderful invitation extended to every generation up to the Coming of Christ. Those who recognize their need and realize that Christ is the provider of Salvation are exhorted to come while there is yet time before the judgment falls and it is too late. As the Scriptures make clear, the gift of eternal life (here called the water of life) is free. It has been paid for by the death of Christ on the Cross and is extended to all who are willing to receive it in simple faith.”

There are great mission organizations today seeking to take the Gospel to those who have not heard. But there are millions who have heard, but have not yet come. Millions who are still on the fence, who have not yet made a decision. If that is you today, Jesus Christ is saying, “Come. Don’t put it off any longer. Come today.” There will be no excuse for you if you die tonight. There will be no excuse if you live long enough to encounter the judgments spoken of in Revelation. If you hunger for the abundant life, if you thirst for spiritual peace, if you long for eternal security, then come to Christ today.

Christ says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… Come, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

Allow me to show you how you can have rest in your soul by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Free State of Glory (Part 54): Better Days Ahead, Part 3

In our last message, we continued looking at the compelling invitation of Jesus Christ couples with the promise that better days are ahead. The saints of John’s day needed this message of hope; our world today needs this message of hope; and the world that is prophesied about in the Revelation will definitely need this message of hope. Alongside the message of hope we have the invitation to “Come.” The “Spirit,” that is the Holy Spirit, says, “Come.” But John writes that the “Bride” also says, “Come.”

The Bride is the Church, the body of Christ. We ought not to simply receive the invitation for ourselves, but we ought to pass it on. In recent years, much has been written and said about the kind of message the Bride, the Church, is sending to the world. What are we saying? Some are saying “come” and “sow a seed” into this ministry and you will be financially prosperous. Some are saying “come” and vote for this politician who we like. Some are saying “come” to our church and you will be happy and comfortable.

But, when we say, “come,” we ought to mean the same thing that the Spirit means. Warren Wiersbe writes, “Believers ought to invite lost sinners to trust Christ and drink the water of life. Indeed, when the church lives in expectancy of Christ’s return, such an attitude provokes ministry and evangelism as well as purity of heart. We want to tell others of the grace of God. A true understanding of BIble prophecy should both motivate us to obey God’s Word and to share God’s invitation with a lost world.”

We ought to pass along the invitation of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. And there are many occasions to do just that. The church’s message to those caught up in the sexual harassment scandals of this past year should be, “Come, and let Christ heal your wounds.” “Come, and let Christ transform your lustful heart.” To those affected by the opioid crisis, we say, “Come and let Christ break that stronghold in your life.” To those who lost family members to violence and natural disasters this year, we say, “Come, and let Christ comfort you in your despair.” To those who lost their jobs, their livelihood, their pensions, or what have you, we say, “Come, and let Christ give you a life more abundant.” To those world-weary, sin-sick souls, we say, “Come, receive salvation, a relationship with God, and a home in Heaven.”

Come, ye disconsolate, wherever ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Here see the Bread of Life, see waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.

Church, will you extend the invitation today? Sinners, will you receive the invitation today? Christ says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… Come, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

Allow me to show you how you can have rest in your soul by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

TEXT: Revelation 22:12-21

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Free State of Glory (Part 52): Better Days Ahead

This weekend, the new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, hit theaters. Predictably, it followed in the footsteps of its eight predecessors for the sheer behemoth size of its cultural footprint — something which has lasted since 1977. As many have tried to explain why the series is so enduring, observers seem to circle back repeatedly to one word: hope. In a galaxy filled with an unrelenting dark force, a seemingly infinite supply of evil, merciless, brainwashed soldiers, and not one, but three planet-destroying weapons, what keeps the battered, ragtag Resistance going? Hope. A belief that, at some time in the future, better days are coming.

Hope for the future is something we all can identify with. It is a constant human endeavour to look ahead to what will presumably be better days. The world as we know it is filled with heartbreak, pain, woe, and numerous reasons to think that there is only worse down the road. Yet, God has put within each of us a spirit that says, “No matter what is happening now, there must be better days ahead.” Even though the book of Revelation deals largely with judgement to come, it is undeniably filled with this sense of hope. And, as we close in on the final few verses of the Revelation, this sense of hope surfaces once again.

In verse 16, Jesus speaks, telling us that better days are coming. He says, “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” The churches of John’s day regularly faced violent persecution. Many believed that the end of the world was already upon them. How wonderful it was for the churches who received John’s Revelation to hear from Jesus, their King, Himself! John Walvoord writes, “The entire Book of Revelation was delivered by Christ through His angel and is for the churches. Christ described Himself as the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. Historically Christ comes through David. Prophetically His Coming is like the morning star, the beginning of a bright new day.”

Warren Wiersbe said, “Our Lord’s titles in Revelation 22:16 are most interesting. The “root” is buried in the ground where no one can see it, but the “star” is in the heavens where everyone can see it. In “the Root and Offspring of David” we have Jesus’ Jewish, national name, but in “the Bright and Morning Star” we have His universal name. One speaks of humility, the other of majesty and glory.
As “the Root of David,” Jesus Christ brought David into existence. As “the Offspring of David,” Jesus came into this world, born a Jew from David’s line. Both the deity and the humanity of Jesus are evident here. The “morning star” announces dawn’s soon arrival. Jesus Christ will come for His church as “the Morning Star.” But when He returns to judge, it will be as “the Sun of righteousness” in burning fury.”

Note that Jesus does not actually do anything in this passage. He simply shows up and declares Himself present: “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” It is in Jesus that we find our true hope and our confidence that better days are truly ahead. It is a great benefit to be reminded that Heaven is our home and that we are just passing through this sin-cursed world. As long as we remember that Jesus is here with us — the same yesterday, today, and forever — the King of kings — we can keep our sense of hope against the seemingly overwhelming dark forces of the world.

If you are not a believer, you will be condemned to remain without the gates of Heaven. Make sure you are within by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Allow me to show you how you can do that right now.

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news.

The Free State of Glory (Part 51): Those Within and Those Without, Part 9


TEXT: Revelation 22:13-15

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The Free State of Glory (Part 51): Those Within and Those Without, Part 9

Mark Twain said, “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”

Friedrich Nietzsche said, “I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”

Jesus Christ declared, “I am the Truth,” and He offers the truth to us in order to make us free. The devil, however, is the “Father of Lies,” who seeks to keep people enslaved to sin by causing them to believe falsehoods. Many people follow the devil in telling lies and deceiving their fellow man. And, as we see in this passage, those who love and make lies will remain without the kingdom of God.

Who are those who the Bible says love lies. The word used for “love” is “phileo” — the friendly kind of affection, describing those who are friendly with lies. They see lying as a way of getting by or getting ahead in life. Of course, many lie to deceive in order to hide what they know is negative within themselves. Some build lies upon lies until their whole life becomes a falsehood and they don’t know where to start to unravel the web of deception.

Further, there are those who “make” lies. The word means “to be the author of, to produce, to prepare, to make a thing out of something.” For some of us feeble sinners, lying is a spur-of-the-moment thing, this word speaks of lies that are planned out ahead of time, long before they are told — propaganda, slander, getting one’s “story straight,” etc.

All forms of lying are offensive to God. In His sight, there are no big lies or little lies, no white lies or black lies. And those who do the work of the devil by deceiving others will remain outside of the gates of Heaven.
