A David, we'll try to respond to your questions in a future. broadcasts stay with us, we'll let you know what to send them. At the end of this program, you're listening to search the scriptures daily a radio ministry of the Brian call.
Now, our next segment understanding, the scriptures, we continue our exploration of the doctrine of salvation, and examine the disturbing concept of eternal punishment here again, with Dave, but is TA McMan in the segment of our program, we're continuing on with addressing so many aspects of the gospel as we said before, it's such a profound subject and is a great encouragement every aspect of it. Now, last week, we addressed life. What happens when you're saved, when you receive the gospel, you have life and you have it more abundantly, but there's a downside to rejecting the Gospel. I wanna read verse that probably all of us know, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life, "for God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.
He believeth on Him is not condemned, but he that believeth not is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the "only begotten Son of God. And David had some terms in here. Perish condemn are John 3-36, "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: And he did believe it, not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. Now here's another aspect, God's wrath for those who do not receive the gospel tell him is something that isn't preached, very often because it's not popular, but Paul said, knowing therefore the terror of the Lord we persuade men on counties. Chapter Five.
Well, as God is so loving and kind, can he just forgive everybody? And if we're sincere and if our good deeds out way or bad then everything is gonna be okay.
Well, that's like saying, Look, I got a ticket last week, but I've been a pretty good person anyway. I don't think that they're gonna really make me pay the fine, or it could be something more serious.
It's a matter of justice. We've talked about this in the past, we have a "wolfenden and we more than offended, we have broken God's laws.
God is the creator of this humerus he makes the rules and he said The soul that sin is it must die.
You said that there are consequences for rebuilding it actually, it's rebellion even to reject the gospel, is rebellion. God loves us so much. He's not likely in personal law of karma. reincarnate you into an aunt or a tree or whatever the the God of the Bible, loves us so much that he came in the service became one of us became a man, because he had to become a man in order to represent us before his court of justice, and when he took our place he was condemned.
We talked about he pleaded with the father in the garden. It is possible, don't make me go through this. And the father said No, this is the only way. So Christ literally became our representative before the court of his own infinite justice and there he was condemned by God's justice and he paid the penalty. This is what's involved. So those who reject the penalty in John 3-16 one of the favorite verses most sunny school kids learning should not perish. You believe in Him, you won't perish. Well, then the implication is very strong. If you don't believe in Him, you will perish. And of course, you quoted John 3, 36. so, not life or John 524, here's my word and believes on Him, that sent me has everlasting life, shall not come into condemnation, but has passed from death to life. Now, if you don't pass from death to life by believing the Gospel putting your faith in Christ, then you are still under the pen of God's judgment. And there are consequence as they said, "We've been delighting in talking about how wonderful God's Salvation is but there are consequences for those who rejected. I read 2nd Thessalonians 17 tearing and to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels "In flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power. And the you didn't make that up? I'm not making enough. This is what God's word says. And people have to know what the scriptures teach about this, they are.
The consequence is God is holy, Bill tells us, "and sin must be punished. He loves us so much. He provided a way of escape, but if we persist in our rebellion against God, and I think the worst rebellion possible is rejecting the part and the office, pardon everyone, but the only office pardoned to those who had met their guilty who admit they need part and who admit that they can't pay, they got off by their good works or whatever, and now to reject His gift or... Well, it's a rejection if you offer anything, this is a gift, you can't earn it, and so forth. We got over that many times, but this is rebellion, to... And the writer to Hebrews warns us.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living. God and I can tell you I'm what 20 years older than you, there about probably... And the older I get, the more I realize it's a slippery slope. This life comes to an end, I hope, in the rapture, but if not, I'm gonna be facing, God, and I often say, Lord, I'm afraid not that I'm afraid for my salvation, it is so awesome to be in the presence of God, the God who paid the universe, infinite in power and wisdom and the... And so forth to be in his presence, but we can't even be in his presence, if we reject the part and the offer in Jesus said, "I am the way, I am the door by me. You and Erin to eternal life, the prince of God, you reject that you are lost forever and in John 3-36, "The wrath of God abides on him was an awful thought. But it's true, again, we have an idea of Jesus, the popular idea it all seems to be very positive with Jesus Himself spoke more about what takes place outside the presence of God. It will be a fearful thing, but it will be a wonderfully fearful thing to be in the presence of God, but to be outside that the Scriptures Matthew, for example, verse after verse talks about whaling, and mashing of teeth cast into Hell, fire, and this was not originally made for mankind. The scripture says this was made prepared for the devil and his angels, those who had the ultimate experience the ultimate environment in the very presence of God, and they rejected them.
Well, what else could it be for them? But it ought not to be, for us, but those who rebel against God and reject the parties offered they are in fact the followers of Satan, therefore they will follow him into that. Like fire, it's called, which is... You was prepared for the devil and his angels, that's where his followers end up as well.
It's a horrible thing. They won't be torturing humans often here, they'll have their own troubles right? It's a morale thing, to talk about to, but again, we have to face the fact, and this is what God says. And furthermore, it's only reasonable it's logical, you've got some pretty horrible consequences, you 37000 feet, you step out of the airplane, you say birds can fly. Why can I grandma talk about this? low gravity? But I don't believe that, you know.
Well, you find out Grande. Was right there is a long gravity even to violate the physical laws, there are serious consequences and you don't get any second chance, when you step out of an airplane or off the top of the building, because this is what happens and surely there would be even more stringent would say requirements to be in God's presence and to share in His holiness, and His perfection, his joy for ever.
That's not just for anybody in Jesus, as you said, he talk more about him, he talks more about people who are outside of this, and then anyone else, and it's a solemn thought, but we need to be worried about going to hell because he offers part Dave. That's the thing that the other in one sense, great because people say, "Well how can I as a good guy, really, let something like that happen? How could he even prepare a place for the devil and his angels, for their rebellion? How could a good God do that?
On the other hand, my response normally is. Well, wait a minute, not only does God just in fair but He sent His son to die in. For us, even I tell somebody just remind me the other day in an illustration I used to use years ago. Here's what you like it 'cause you're efficient, out.
Here's a fish swimming in a beautiful river, it looks out on the bank and the season, man, up there sitting on a chair, smoking a cigar as legs cross, and he's got a fishing pole and the fish looks up and says, and I know that's really live in that so, it jumps out "Rais way up on the chair risers his fins and is trying to pick up a fishing pole and wide up a cigar with the skills or him going on his gasping and it falls over in the dies and it's flopping around dying and gravelines somebody walks by and says, What kind of a good God would create a fish to suffer like that, no, God is not create the fish to see like, that he created the fish to swim in that beautiful ocean or the river or lake where it is. The problem was, it got out of what God intended for it and that man's problem.
God loves man, and He pretty Minaret Garson and man rebelled against God and he wanted to take his own way.
And there are serious consequences and hell is really, it's a continuation you are going to be alone, you take in your own way, you have rejected God and these are the consequences that there are. And Jesus, as you said, he paid the penalty and there is pardon and forgiveness and eternal life offer for everyone who will believe in him.
