 "Christians" going to Hell?

Today’s churches do not always touch on the subject of hell. God does not want anyone to go to hell, but if they do not put Him first in their life and do His works, one might not end up where they think they are going.

That’s it, nothing more, nothing less, “an offer”. Stand back and look at your life birth to death and all that you might have achieved or experienced is still confined inside being still “an offer”. Did you do what God wanted? Did you transfer your right to life to Him? That means that it no longer belongs to you.

Looking at the earth and the “living years” in this “state of being”, and it is amazing to see what humans have achieved. But, humans should not be fooled into thinking that achievements are something special or something to merit, because they all “don’t matter”. Whether you have live in a palace with a forty meter yacht on the coast, or you sit on a pile of mud scratching for worms to eat, “it doesn’t matter”. 

You have been given “an offer”, “a choice”. The only reason that you exist in this “state of being” is to see what you will do, what you will decide, what you will choose. Not making any choice at all in respects of “the offer” is making a choice to do nothing about it and invariably rejecting it. 

“Bang!” You are nineteen in a war and you're shot and you are dead!

“Oops!” You have skidded while driving your car, crashed, you’re twenty one and you’re killed with two of your friends!

“Eighty three” and you die quietly in residential care!

“Conjoined twin” and you die at four weeks!

A crowd gathered around a person lying on the pavement outside a jewellers. Some blood was starting to come from the persons mouth. Is that you? It couldn’t be. You thought that it would be so nice to pull the duvet over you in bed and slip away “somewhere”, but where? Where? Where are you going to go? Where are you going to be? Are you going to say then “is this all that my life was about?” “Is this all that I have amounted to?” “This is not fair, this cannot be right! I wasn’t such a bad  person was I?” 

Listen "Christian", if you really believe in what you believe in, then why are you're doing what you're doing and you aren't out convincing the world of what you believe? Knowing what you know you should be. Jesus would, but maybe you haven't got Jesus in you and this why you don't want to, can't be bothered or think that it is someone else's job. The reality is that you think that you're "saved" and you are not. You are a child of hell and it is in hell that you will end up. You will even think that you are still a "Christian" when you're in hell and think that some mistake has been made concerning where you've ended up. The biggest prayer meeting is in Hell!

                                 

   

The Secret of the Lord
is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant. Psalm  25:11

For sincere Christians, holiness is an aspiration which usually is only dreamt about, with no real concrete, proven, direction to follow.  Many of God's people also recognize that holiness is the key to a God-sent revival but, how do we become holy and walk in holiness?

Based on Scripture and testimonies of past saints who did walk in holiness, which resulted in victory and power, often bringing in revival

The message of holiness is only for those who are hungry for more of God. It is for those who want their Christian life to be effective. It is for Christians who want to see a genuine God-sent Revival. We can obey the commandment of the Lord in 1 Peter 1:15-16, ‘Be ye Holy, as I am Holy.’

Scripture and proven testimonies reveal the Full Gospel of Full Salvation and the Missing Link, the Clean Heart, where victory over sin is possible (not sinless perfection, please note).

The Real Issues

Grace cannot set aside forever all condemnation for future sins

Salvation does not include freedom to live in sins of all kinds. It does not guarantee immunity from Hell if one goes back into sins and dies in them. There is no Scripture in the Bible that teaches that God forgives at one time all past, present and future sins.

It can only set aside condemnation as long as a man stays free from sin. The modern fallacy that judicial forgiveness covers ALL sins, past, present and future; that God does not impute sins of believers to them; and that God never condemns a saved man for any sins committed, but charges them to the Lord Jesus Christ, is one of the most unscriptural and demon-inspired theories in any church. It is argued by those who hold to such a theory that not even earthly courts could punish the same man for his crime two different times and that since Christ bore the sins of all men, He cannot bear them twice. This argument is all true as far as it goes, but it is only half truth. Christ bore the sins of all, but no one gets saved or is forgiven until he truly repents and asks for mercy.

It is true that a man cannot be punished for his crime twice, but if the same man goes out and commits the same crime again after being cleared of the first crime, he must be punished again. There is no court that will give any man a blanket pardon to continue to commit the same crimes again and again without punishment every time he sins. The fact that he was pardoned for one crime is no excuse for all future crimes. In other words, if a governor pardons a murderer and restores him into full  citizenship and freedom, the murderer cannot go out and continue to murder simply because he was pardoned. It would be silly to argue that the pardon that he received for one murder gives him full freedom to murder all he wants to without being punished for his crimes. No human government could long continue if this was the way it dealt with criminals. No court could justly free a man to go out and commit all the crimes he desired simply on the grounds that he had been punished for one crime or had been pardoned at on time. Is God the only Governor that is so lacking in intelligence that He carries on government by permitting His subjects to be as lawless as they please? No, Jesus said to those who He forgave, "Go your way and SIN NO MORE".  "Oh but that is impossible" I hear you say. Well then ask Jesus why He said it if He didn't mean that it were possible.

SOUND THE ALARM!
 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice as a trumpet and shew my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins. Isaiah 58:1

(continued) It is just as ridiculous to argue from the same premise about the salvation of sinners. God could not be just to give any man a blank cheque (check) to commit any sin that he wanted and to be immune from punishment. This would be just like the murderer being given a blank cheque as part of his pardon enabling him to commit all the murders he wanted to. In this case the governor who gave the pardon would be responsible for all the murders the the man would commit. Naturally all the sins of a sinner have been paid for and Christ has borne all sins in His body on the tree. He will forgive all sins that are confessed to Him and truly repented over, but this does not give the saved person a blank cheque to continue in sin and live as he pleases without any fear of being held accountable for his sins after he has one time been saved. This is the wickedest false doctrine believed and sometimes even taught in the present church today.

Salvation does not include freedom to live in sins of all kinds. It does not guarantee immunity from Hell if one goes back into sins and dies in them. There is no Scripture in the Bible that teaches that God forgives at one time all past, present and future sins.

There are Scriptures that tell us that all sins committed up to the time of repentance are forgiven and blotted out and therefore at the time of forgiveness there is not one sin that God holds against that truly repentant person. God promised to keep us free from sin from this point on if we would meet certain conditions. GOD NEVER DID PROMISE ANYTHING BUT THIS. No man ever received anything but this. God never required of us anything but confession of sins already committed. ONLY SINS THAT HAVE BEEN COMMITTED CAN BE FORGIVEN.

This is clear from all Scriptures ( Ex 32:30-34, Lev 4:2-35, 5:1-17, 6:2-30, Num 5:1-7, Ps 32:1-5, 38:1-18, 51:1-13, Matt 3:6, 18:12-35, Acts 2:38, 3:19, 5:31, 26:18, 2 Pet 1:9, 1 John 1:9, Rev 1:5)

It is simply ridiculous to teach that future sins are forgiven before they are committed. The fact that the sins of men since the cross were committed after Christ died or that Christ died for all future sins of future men is no proof that all future sins of a man are forgiven before he commits them. Christ died for all men and if men are all forgiven simply because Christ died for them and if men do not have to confess their sins in order to be forgiven simply because Christ died for them, then all will be saved and there is no need of anyone ever confessing sins. The sins of the Old Testament saints were not committed after Christ died and yet Christ atoned for all those sins that were past (Rom 3:24-25, Heb 9:15). They all had to make confession of sins when and after they were committed just as modern men must do, according to the passages cited above. We must conclude that no sin can be forgiven before it is committed. If this is true, then there is no such thing as all future sins being blotted out by one act of faith in Christ, giving men immunity from all punishment for future sins committed.

Statements such as "taketh away the sin of the world" and "take away our sins" simply refer to the fact that Christ bore the sins of all men of all ages, past, present and future men, but redemption can benefit only those who personally confess their sins and accept the work of Christ on the cross for them. If this be not true and if Christ saves all men simply because He died for all, regardless of their meeting any conditions in their personal lives, then all are saved from sin and will go to heaven and there is no need of preaching the gospel any further.

The will of God is that after one is forgiven and becomes a new creature in Christ then they are supposed to quit the sin business. Jesus told several "Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" John 5:14, 8:11. Jesus taught that "whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin John 8:34. He further taught that the work of the Holy Spirit throughout this age would be to "reprove the world of sin" John 16:7-11.

Paul stated that me should not continue in sin just because God was gracious to keep forgiving sin Romans 6:1, that men "should not henceforth serve sin" after they were born again Romans 6:1-6, that saved men are "freed from sin" Romans 6: 7-23, that saved men were to " walk in Christ as they received Him Col 2:6-7, that if they sinned again after they were made free from sin, that they died again and reaped what they sowed Romans 6:16-23, 8:1-13, Gal 5:19-21, 6:7-8, that if saved men denied God He would deny them 2 Tim 2:12

Grace cannot keep men saved when they are sinning against God Romans 8:1-13

IT'S MY MISSION TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE PREPARED FOR ETERNITY!

 

 

Hell’s best kept secret

Why do 80-90% of those making a decision for Christ fall away from the faith? What is the principle that Spurgeon, Wesley, Whitefield, etc., used to reach the lost? Why has the Church neglected it? Don't let anything stop you from listening to this incredible teaching. What happens to anyone who doesn’t understand true repentance for breaking God’s Law. Jesus doesn’t make your life better, He wants you to lose your life.

  

 

This is the challenge for honesty and reality in God’s people.

It is not intended to be arrogant or critical, but - it is one of exposure and challenge; the challenge in our ‘comfortable’ carnally secure and sin ridden Western society.

It is for the Lord’s glory and pleasure, and blessings and fulfilment for the people of God.

If you are saved in Christ, but feel that you are not moving and growing in Him, you need to hear Dr. Houston.

Are you are hungry and desperate for more of God and His reality in your life and long to see and experience real Revival

Scriptural Holiness, the ‘missing link’ is a result of experiencing and going on unto Perfection. The doctrine of Holiness has been almost forgotten, hidden and not taught or preached and this is why that there have not been any Revivals like in past times. The issue is the personal conviction and deal with the issue of personal sin and revival first starts with ourselves.

John Wesley said, “Only share this with people who are hungry.”  “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled” said Jesus.

Like Joshua and Caleb we press on in spite of unbelief and doubt in others. True holiness has never been a popular subject – the cost is very high.

Satan is a liar and a robber. For half a century and even longer, he has bred and fostered many misinterpretations, misconceptions, and half-truths to God’s people and promoted a lying gospel of just half the message, a half truth gospel that takes those "I've prayed the sinner's prayer and I'm alright" people, straight to hell after they die.

The Bible says that "without Holiness no man shall see the Lord" and "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God"

The fear of God comes from the knowledge of God, which is from knowing God. The Bible tells us that the beginning of wisdom and knowledge is the fear of the Lord. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)

As God’s presence is revealed to us physically and spiritually we stand in awesome respect of His power and majesty. The children of Israel had an encounter with God that made an impression on them at Mount Sinai. Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, the whole mountain trembled violently, and the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder. (Exodus 19:17-19)
In God’s presence the people were terrified, but Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning." (Exodus 20:18-20)
The greater our knowledge of God the greater our love will be for Him, and the greater our fear of Him will be also. The prophet Isaiah had an encounter with God that changed his life.  He said: "Woe is me..." (Isaiah 6:1-5)

In the revelation of God’s light and glory even our slightest shortcomings are revealed which causes us to immediately repent. Notice that Isaiah even felt contaminated by the sin of the people that he had been with, when he stood before God.
