The rich man also died and was buried, and his soul went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Lazarus in the far distance with Abraham. "The rich man shouted, `Father Abraham, have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in anguish in these flames.' "But Abraham said to him, `Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted, and you are in anguish. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. Anyone who wanted to cross over to you from here is stopped at its edge, and no one there can cross over to us.' "Then the rich man said, `Please, Father Abraham, send him to my father's home. For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them about this place of torment so they won't have to come here when they die.' "But Abraham said, `Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read their writings (God's Word) anytime they want to.' "The rich man replied, `No, Father Abraham! But if someone is sent to them from the dead, then they will turn from their sins." “But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they won’t listen even if someone rises from the dead.”

It will be just the SAME on the DAY that the SON OF MAN is REVEALED. On that DAY, the one who is on the HOUSETOP and WHOSE GOODS are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back. REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE. Whoever SEEKS to KEEP his LIFE will LOSE IT, and whoever LOSES HIS LIFE will PRESERVE (KEEP) IT."

  • Luke 18:9-14 THE RELIGIOUS PHARISEE & THE DISHONEST TAX COLLECTOR - Jesus told this story "Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a dishonest tax collector. The proud Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: `I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else, especially like that tax collector over there! For I never cheat, I don't sin, I don't commit adultery, I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.' "But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, `O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.' I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For the proud will be humbled, but the humble will be honored."

For it will come as a SNARE on ALL those who DWELL on the FACE of the WHOLE EARTH.

  • John 3:3-8 Jesus replied, "I assure you, unless you are Born Again, you can never see the Kingdom of God." "What do you mean?" exclaimed Nicodemus. "How can an old man go back into his mother's womb and be born again?" Jesus replied, "The truth is, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven. So don't be surprised at my statement that you must be born again. Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can't explain how people are born of the Spirit."

Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.” Then Jesus said, “I chose the twelve of you, but one is a devil.”

For even though they KNEW GOD, they did NOT HONOR HIM as GOD or give THANKS, but they became FUTILE in their SPECULATIONS, and their FOOLISH HEART was DARKENED. Professing to be WISE, they became FOOLS, and exchanged the GLORY of the INCORRUPTIBLE GOD for an IMAGE in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the LUSTS of their HEARTS to IMPURITY, so that their BODIES would be DISHONORED among them.

  • Romans 2:4-10 Don’t you see how Wonderfully Kind, Tolerant, and Patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his Kindness is intended to Turn you from your Sin? But because you are Stubborn and Refuse to Turn from your Sin, you are Storing up Wrath (Terrible Punishment) for yourself. For a Day of Wrath (Anger) is coming, when God’s Righteous Judgment will be revealed. He will Judge everyone according to what they have done. He will give Eternal Life to those who keep on doing Good, seeking after the Glory and Honor and Immortality that God offers. But he will pour out his Anger and Wrath on those who live for themselves, who Refuse to Obey the Truth and instead live lives of wickedness.

For all have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet now God in his gracious kindness declares us not guilty. He has done this through Christ Jesus, who has freed us by taking away our sins. For God sent Jesus to take the punishment for our sins and to satisfy God's anger against us. We are made right with God when we believe that Jesus shed his blood, sacrificing his life for us. God was being entirely fair and just when he did not punish those who sinned in former times. And he is entirely fair and just in this present time when he declares sinners to be right in his sight because they believe in Jesus. Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on our good deeds. It is based on our faith. So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law."

Much more then, having now been JUSTIFIED by His HIS BLOOD, we shall be SAVED from the WRATH of GOD through Him. For if while we were ENEMIES we were RECONCILED to GOD through the DEATH of HIS SON, much more, having been RECONCILED, we shall be SAVED by HIS LIFE. 11) And not only this, but we also EXULT in GOD through our LORD JESUS CHRIST, through whom we have now received the RECONCILIATION.

But if I do the very thing I do NOT want to DO, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good. So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but SIN which DWELLS in me. For I know that NOTHING GOOD DWELLS IN ME, that is, in my FLESH; for the WILLING is present in me, but the DOING of the GOOD is NOT. For the GOOD that I WANT, I DO NOT DO, but I PRACTICE the VERY EVIL that I do NOT WANT. But if I am DOING the very thing I do NOT WANT, I am NO LONGER the one doing it, but SIN which DWELLS in me. I find then the principle that EVIL is present in me, the one who wants to DO GOOD. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the INNER MAN, but I see a different law in the members of my body, WAGING WAR against the law of my MIND and making me a PRISONER of the law of sin which is in my members.

These two forces are constantly fighting each other, and your choices are never free from this conflict. But when you are directed by the Holy Spirit, you are no longer subject to the law. When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your lives will produce these evil results: sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other kinds of sin. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Here there is no conflict with the law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

Then where is he? Why, as far back as anyone can remember, everything has remained exactly the same since the world was first created." They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of His command, and He brought the earth up from the water and surrounded it with water. Then He used the water to destroy the world with a mighty flood. And God has also commanded that the heavens and the earth will be consumed by fire on the day of judgment, when ungodly people will perish. But you must not forget, dear friends, that a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise to return, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to perish, so He is giving more time for everyone to repent. But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and everything in them will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be exposed to judgment. Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living! You should look forward to that day and hurry it along—the day when God will set the heavens on fire and the elements will melt away in the flames.
