“The Devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Revelation 20:10 (HCSB)
There is a day in the future when the devil and his antichrist WILL be thrown into the lake of fire, which will be forever. Though hell was not created for humans, those who reject Christ, ultimately choose to go there! God will give us the desire of our hearts (Romans 1:24, 26, 28 and 2:5-6), whether that is Him or ourselves (Romans 6:23).
Today there are many who have sold themselves to serve the devil. Their plans, agenda and conspiracies will not succeed. They seek a one world government without God, with them as the elite and everyone else as slaves at best. Satan is trying to bring his ‘man of lawlessness’ into leadership before his time. The worship of Satan is becoming very blatant and open, with the depth of pedophilia, sex trafficking, child sacrifices and cannibalism being exposed at a level never seen before! But their plans will not succeed! The light and glory of God are coming upon those who seek Him in this day of gross darkness (Isaiah 60:1-2). And the knowledge of His glory WILL fill the earth (Habakkuk 2:14).
Psalm 2 says God sits on His throne and laughs at them as they conspire against Him (v.4). They have two options… kiss the Son or suffer His wrath (v.12). Likewise, you and I have a choice as well. Will we choose to kiss the Son, which refers to worshiping Him, serving Him and loving Him with all our heart, or will we choose our own way, which is called rebellion, and face the consequences?
Please pray that the message of the Gospel would be heard and received. Pray that our nation would come to understand that God is real and that He does not send anyone to hell, rather they choose to go there by rejecting His offer of life through His Son. Pray for our city, for the veil to be removed so that eyes can see, ears can hear and hearts can respond freely to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray that every form of wickedness in our city would be exposed, seen by all and removed! Pray for your church to preach/teach a clear Gospel, a full Gospel, not one compromised by man or doctrines of demons, but one that calls sin for what it is – SIN! Pray that God would anoint the pulpits across our city, that the Holy Spirit would release the fire of God, conviction and repentance of sin, and that a holy fear of the LORD would permeate over every inch of Athens! Tell the LORD that you choose Him, to love Him, serve Him and worship Him with all your heart!
