Revelation 21:8 KJV — 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.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 13 Jan 2024
The Bible is very clear about the reality and nature of hell, and gives full clarity of the categories of people reserved for hell. What is amazing is that beside the usual suspects, such as unbelievers, idol worshippers, murderers, adulterers and sorcerers, God includes all liars among those who will spend time in the lake of fire for all of eternity. Though humans love to trivialise lying as a harmless attribute, Jehovah treats lies and lying as a weighty offence that deserves severe punishment in hell. Lies distort the truth and cause havoc everywhere and are inimical to God's purpose for humans, so all liars are enemies of Jehovah. If you indulge in lying, know for sure that you are God's enemy and you are walking towards banishment to hell. You can prevent this by changing course, refrain from lying and resolve to live or die, telling the truth only.
Pray: Merciful Father, I repent of all the time I indulged in lying, please forgive me and set me forth on the way of righteous living. #Mok
