There is nothing good that cometh out of a lifestyle found in the world. You can think that what you are doing is good but if you are in sin, this is against God. To do the will of the flesh and not the will of the Father is darkness. Everyone that lives a life outside of the Word of God is blaspheming God’s commands. The Lord has declared His guidelines for us all, but instead they are taken as no longer relevant. Many people have told me that the commandments of God are old laws and no longer necessary. 5They believe in doing good to their fellow man and in believing in God, however, there is no conviction to God if sin prevaleth in our lives. 4As Jesus taught, the ten commandments are as important to us now as they ever have been. 6To love Jesus is to keep the commandments. If you are living against God’s laws then there is no true belief in Him. Believing in God is to do His will over our own. If you are living in sin, just humble yourself for a minute. 1“Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?” The pride in your eyes is only leading you down a path of destruction. 1“Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness.” Any person that is content in their wicked ways has no entrance into heaven. 8Instead, they will be presented with a lake that burns forever. Hell is not a place for the righteous but for the wicked. If you are not right with God then repent. Don’t wait to get right with God.
God loves the humble for they are open to receive Him. God’s counsel is taken with thanks. They are open to see the wickedness in their hearts. They acknowledge that they are lost and need a Savior. This repentance leads to forgiveness of sins. To be covered by the blood of Jesus is a free gift to everyone that seeks Him. 3“Seek and Ye shall find” mercy. I pray that this is where you are today. If you have strayed or have never committed to follow Jesus, do so today. Don’t wait until tomorrow for it may never come. The wrath of God is over the wicked. 7Everyone that is classified as fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, idolaters, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners will not enter the kingdom of God. 2If you are lusting after a women in your heart, you have already committed adultery. This happens every time someone looks at pornography. Sexual sin, along with the other unrighteous acts, above, is grievous in the sight of God. To do such things and not come clean with God for deliverance is only securing your place in a pit of fire, in hell. Those living this way, 1“God shall likewise destroy thee for ever”. Fear God and confess your sins openly in prayer. No longer trust in the things of the world. Turn from your sins and 1“Trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.” Be washed by the blood of Jesus.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, thank you for restoring my life into Your love. Though I was so lost, You came for me that I might be made new. Thank You for caring so deeply for my soul. Who am I to find delight in Your sight? Thank You for hearing my prayers. My confessions were made and You found mercy. Thank You for delivering me out of the hands of the enemy. Lord, I pray for anyone that is still in bondage of sin. May their hearts be convicted of their sins. Cast away all darkness from their eyes that they may see the beauty of following in Your footsteps. May their be more people that are humbled. May more people open their hearts to receive You. I know that You can heal anyone’s life. I trust in You for healing. You are my deliverer. I praise You, my Savior. I love You. Amen.

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
