TEXT: MARK 9:43-48
43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Key verse: Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
In today’s devotion, we shall see the reason why our Lord Jesus said, “the first shall
be the last.” Below is an excerpt from the revelation of Jesus in the book titled:
Escaping hell and entering heaven made simple.
“Jesus, the two angels and I stood together. He pointed his hand to hell and said,
“Man cannot understand the nature of the torments of hell, however, go and tell
him. Tell him if all the sufferings on earth were gathered to be borne by one man, it
would still not be compared to what man will suffer for 24 hours in hell. Yet man
may not understand, go and still tell him”. In my third visit to heaven and hell, the
Lord Jesus and the angels had welcomed me with a smile at the beautiful pearly
gate. We all stood quietly at the gate. I saw that the smiling face of Jesus suddenly
changed into a sad and sorrowful one. I wondered what could have been responsible
for that. I understood the reason by the event that immediately followed.
When we were at the gate, a believer died on earth and was coming. He died that
Monday around 6:00pm, not long after I was taken up. As he was coming towards
the gate he was crying and pleading “will there not be mercy and forgiveness for me
again? “What really happened? Jesus narrated to me the incidence of this man. He
was a fervent believer whose name was in the Book of Life. That Monday morning,
he bade farewell to his family and left for a journey. But unfortunately, Satan
prepared a seductive lady against him. This lady seduced him in the public vehicle
he boarded. When they arrived at their destination, he took the lady to a hotel and
slept with her. Within that period the devil succeeded in killing him. At the gate, he
cried and pleaded with Jesus for mercy and forgiveness.”
Thought for the day: Keep your garment of righteousness spotless for heaven.
Song for the day: Take time to be holy...
Bible reading for the day: Ecclesiastes 4-6; 2 Corinthians 10
