© God’s Judgment and Vengeance of the Make Believers…

In closing this book, I will now bring God’s judgment and vengeance into focus. I know that what I am about to share is hard to accept as judgment from a loving God, but I pray that I have laid a strong enough foundation from the parables to reveal to you God’s judgment for those Make Believers who continue in intentional sinning and who continue in unrepentance with their lives reflecting their continued profane secular humanistic worldview. True “Born Again” Christians must appear to those around them as “peculiar people.” (1)
(1) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.                 (Titus 2:13-15) KJV
(1a) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.          (1 Peter 2:9-10) KJV

This judgment starts out with the writer of the Book of Hebrews calling Christ’s Church to develop Its spiritual hearing along with Its spiritual insights. {Remember, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)} NKJV

“We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
“Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And God permitting, we will do so.” (Hebrews 5:11-6:3) NIV

If those Make Believers who call themselves Christians do not strive towards the completeness and perfection of their faith that belongs with spiritual maturity, the writer of the Book of Hebrews continues with more strong judgment against them. Listen to what is said. “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
1)“For the earth which drinks 2) in the rain that often comes upon it, and 3) bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, 4) receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, 5) it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.” (Hebrews 6:4-8) NKJV

I just discovered that verses 7-8 are another parable. Can you interpolate it? Its correct interpolation reveals God’s judgment for those Make Believers who become apostates/ Unbelievers in verses 4-6. Remember the Christian Church is global. 1) Who does the earth/world represent? 2) Who is the rain? 3) What are they to produce and to cultivate? 4) What do they receive? 5) If they do not produce nor cultivate useful fruit, what do they receive? You can figure it out!!! {Answers: 1) God’s kingdom/Christ’s Church on earth. 2) Us Saints. 3) Winning and discipling lost souls/sinners to Jesus Christ as their Savior, Lord God, and Master. The processes of justification and sanctification. 4) eternal glorification. 5) eternal condemnation.}

© Judgment and Vengeance of the Living God towards those who have not repented of their Profane Secular Humanistic Worldview.

The writer of the Book of Hebrews continues on with the judgment and vengeance of the living God towards those who have not repented of their profane secular humanistic worldview. “Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.
“If anyone sins deliberately by rejecting the Savior after knowing the truth of forgiveness, this sin is not covered by Christ’s death; there is no way to get rid of it. There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible punishment of God’s awful anger, which will consume all his enemies. A man who refused to obey the laws given by Moses was killed without mercy if there were two or three witnesses to his sin. Think how much more terrible the punishment will be for those who have trampled underfoot the Son of God and treated his cleansing blood as though it were common and unhallowed, and insulted and outraged the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to his people.
“For we know him who said, “Justice belongs to me; I will repay them”; who also said, “The Lord himself will handle these cases.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:25-31) TLB

Cain asked God, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Genesis 4:9d) NKJV I believe the answer to that question to be a resounding YES!!! God has called those who are mature in their faith to be His watchmen and His ambassadors in the world and in Christ’s Bride Church. (2)
(2) So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:20) AMP

We have a responsibility to and for the Unsaved, the Make Believers, and the True Believers to share our testimonies of Jesus Christ in our lives to encourage others to stand firm in their saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, and Master.

God plainly reveals our immense responsibility to our fellow man. “When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
“Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.” (Ezekiel 3:18-21) NKJV

Paul shares this same responsibility towards others. Bear and Share the Burdens. “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For each one shall bear his own load.” (Galatians 6:1-5) NKJV
