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. ~Revelation 21:8
FEARFUL – What does the Bible say about fear? Study it, understand what fear is, and stay away from it through the courage that comes from the infilling of God in your life.
UNBELIEVING – What does the Bible say about faith and what you should believe? Study it, learn what faith is, learn what the Bible says and believe every word in it’s pages through faith.
ABOMINABLE – What does the Bible call an abomination? Do a study on the word abomination (HINT: use a Strong’s Concordance). If the Bible says it is an abomination, I would highly recommend you do not do it… EVER.
MURDERERS – What does the Bible say about murder? Jesus said that even the use of hate speech toward someone is murder. You might want to watch your mouth, after all, our Messiah seems to think that they are the same thing.
WHOREMONGERS – What does the Bible say about sexual sins? Study it, look at what things are considered evil in God’s eyes. And remember, Jesus said that if you look upon another’s wife with lust you have committed adultery in your heart.
SORCERERS – What does the Bible say about sorcery and witchcraft? It is often said that the very word for sorcery is derived from a Greek word that evolved into the modern word ‘pharmacy’. Drugs (including alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana) are mind-altering substances… they are, essentially, a form of witchcraft.
IDOLATORS – What does the Bible say about idolatry? Is there anything in your life that you would not give up for the Kingdom of God? Even something that would not otherwise be evil in itself can become an idol in your life.
LIARS – What does the Bible call a lie? Since the Bible is the ultimate standard of truth, anything that contradicts the Bible would be a lie. Anyone, then, who believes and/or teaches things that contradict the Bible would be liars.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. ~2 Timothy 2:15
