Righteous men do NOT SIN The Unrighteous Will PERISH
Many people will end up in hell because they believed satan's lies. One of those lies that is commonly believed nowadays is that Jesus Christ was the only man that could walk this earth without sinning. That is not true. there were many righteous men throughout the ages. There were people like Enoch, Abraham, Lot, Noah, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego, Samuel, the prophets, and all those who believed in Jesus Christ and who followed Him, those who repented and who became saints, children of God, who followed Jesus Christ.
The unrighteous will PERISH. Let us read Ezekiel 14:12
"Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, 13“Son of man, if a country sins against Me by committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out My hand against it, destroy its supply of bread, send famine against it and cut off from it both man and beast, 14even though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, by their own righteousness they could only deliver themselves,” declares the Lord GOD. 15“If I were to cause wild beasts to pass through the land and they depopulated it, and it became desolate so that no one would pass through it because of the beasts, 16though these three men were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the country would be desolate. 17“Or if I should bring a sword on that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass through the country and cut off man and beast from it,’ 18even though these three men were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters, but they alone would be delivered. 19“Or if I should send a plague against that country and pour out My wrath in blood on it to cut off man and beast from it, 20even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their son or their daughter. They would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”
GOD NEVER CHANGED. The unrighteous will not come into His presence. He will CUT THEM OFF, they will PERISH.
We read the words of the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6:9
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God."
If we do not TURN we will BURN. If we do not turn away from unrighteousness and obey Jesus Christ and live righteousness we will not enter His kingdom.
The apostle John wrote in 1 John 3:4
"Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother."
We were all sinners and we come short of the glory of God. we all had a bad start. But it doesn't matter how you started. What really matters is how you end up. Are we going to finish as sinners the day that we die, or are we going to TURN, turn from our wicked ways and follow Jesus Christ, stop sinning, obey Jesus, be born again of the Spirit of God, follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, live righteousness and be pleasing to God?
The choice is ours. Not all men are unrighteous. Not all men are sinners. Those who have made a decision to LIVE, they TURN and they follow Jesus Christ until the very end, because the unrighteous will perish.
Are you a sinner or are you a righteous person? Are you following Jesus Christ until the end?
May Jesus bless you.
