The Tragedy Of A False Hope

I began to run this thought over in my mind, and it honestly is a terrifying experience. You see so many today that have such assurance about their relationship with God, yet there is little evidence to support it. They are so sure they are Heaven bound that no amount of warning from the Bible will shake them or even cause them to examine themselves. They will tell you they have a day and time they accepted Christ and followed through and were baptized, they attend church, somewhat, and live the best they can. They think “of course we all know no one lives perfect, we all sin in thought, word and deed every day, so why should I feel uneasy about some sin in my life?” The deceived quiet their mind believing this.

The point that I want to stress in this article is, at the end of the way there is a shocking reality that awaits MANY.  There are a number of these shocking, horrifying incidents recorded in God's Word. Matthew 7 tells of people so sure they deserve Heaven that they argue with the Lord. They tell all the good works they have done in their life; they call Him Lord and say they have prophesied in His name. Picture their expressions, their countenance, when Jesus says to them, "depart from Me, ye that work iniquity."    Again, listen to the cries of the foolish virgins in Matthew 25:12 " But He answered and said, Verily I say unto you. I know you not." Try, if you can, to put yourself in their position at that very moment. All hypocrites will hear the same words from the Lord, yet millions of people walk about day by day without the witness of the Holy Spirit confirming their relationship with the Lord. I now better understand the crying, yea screaming in the pits of hell. Hear them say, “I was sure I was going to Heaven, someone told me a lie!”

May the Lord of glory awaken folks before this happens to them, is my prayer.
