Romans 9: 20-22
Romans 9:22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much long suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction.
The resurrection of sinners shall come after the millennial reign of 1000 years of Christ's administration on the earth. At that time, all sinners shall resurrect from hell fire and be judged before they shall be taken to the lake of fire. What body then shall they come out with?
Look at what the Bible says in today's reading text. The Potter, who makes the pot from clay, makes both honourable and dishonourable clay pots. There is no beauty in the second because it is not for a honourable use. Therefore, he does not bother about beautifying it.
God has equally made a resurrected body for sinners that is terribly fit for damnation.
It will be the type of body that will suffer heat, torture and damnation properly. How the fire will enter into the ears, mouth and private parts of the body into the buttocks and burn them up. God has given them a body that will suffer judgment properly. It is instructive to re-emphasis here that the resurrection body of sinners will be made fitted for destruction and very contemptible.
When you see it, you would not want to look at it the second time. They shall look abominable as excreta and you will not like to look at it again. As you see such a thing, you will quickly turn your eyes away. Indeed, God will give the sinner a body that no one will like to look at. Whenever someone sees it, he will exclaim in disgust, “Take that thing away from my sight. I don't want to see it again!”
People that see such bodies will hate it, to show that you are an object of eternal hatred. God Himself will not want to look at you, because when He stares at you once He would think of more evil to do to you. Yes, it will be an abominable body, a cursed body. It will be a body that when you look at, you would like to curse it the more. When you see it, you would want to curse, judge and damn it.
In fact, you will not like to see that body. Again, it is marred, confused. Not properly defined but it will look bad, terribly bad. It will be marred and thoroughly deformed. It is a shameful body that even you yourself will not like to look at. May this not be your portion in Jesus name. It is worth sacrificing everything in this life to enter heaven. Hell fire is a damnable place of everlasting torment and shame. AVOID IT!
Thought for the day:
The resurrection body of sinners will be made fit for destruction.
Song for the day:
Make me worthy (3x) O Lord
