                                                                God’s Confirmation

Revelation 21:3-8 In these verses God is confirming John’s words and confirming that when the testing or refining is done those who have overcome will be with him in paradise forever. For others their eternity will be spent separated from God. When God tells John to write this down, it’s like it’s written in stone and will not be changed.

John is told by God to write these things down, confirming that what he is doing is Gods will for him. I don’t know about you but I am often guilty of jumping into things without first asking for guidance and help from God. I have no doubt that had I taken the time to begin each thing I was about to do with a short “God guide and help me” prayer there are things I wouldn’t have done and things I would have done better. I’m not saying that we should try to control God with our prayers by asking him to bless the decisions we’ve already made. What I am saying is that we should be asking God to guide us to the right decisions.

I have to admit I ‘m not sure about the exact meaning of the fiery pit of burning sulfur but I can imagine what total separation from God would be like. Think about living in a place with the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murders, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic, the idolaters and all liars. Think of a place where no one is kind, loving, peaceful, patient, gentle and has self-control. Spending eternity living in a place of fear and hate is my idea of hell. There would be no doctors or nurses no pastors or social workers no one offering a helping hand or a kind word when you are suffering and there would be no death to end the suffering. That would be a world with God and all Godly people removed.

As you read this you may be thinking you know an evil town, a street, a neighborhood, or even a country like that. The people in those places can look externally and have some hope of how things might be better when they see peaceful communities. But what if there is no place better. God and good have been totally removed. That would be a hell of a place to exist for eternity.

Lord, help me always to ask for your guidance and approval before committing to a task. Help me also to remember to pray at the end of each task and to thank you for your guidance. I pray that all who read this would be among the saved and able to spend eternity with you. Give me strength to do all I can to spread your Gospel.
