DON’T FUEL THE INFERNO
MEMORISE: But the cowardly unbeliesing abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorums Idolaters, and all fiars shall have their part in the lake… (Revelation 21:8).
READ: Luke 16:19-31
How will Sodom and Gomorrah ever forget the devastating effect of God’s judgement on them (Gen. 19:12-29)? Likewise, only the people of Noah’s day can fully express the devastating effects of God’s destruction unleashed on them in the deluge (7:1ff). Would Pharaoh and his people forget the plagues and the sorrow of losing their firstborns (Exo. 12:29-30)? God is not a man that you can joke with. He is terrifying when it comes to dealing with sin. Had the man in our text today known he was fuelling the inferno with his ungodly attitudes, he would have desisted from them quickly. The Bible records that he was so selfish and callous to his poor neighbour, Lazarus, He was only adding fuel to the inferno through his self-centredness and lack of regard for God. He finally ran into his hullabaloo.
Today, we do a lot of things that aren’t anything but “fuelling the inferno”, such as vain religiosity, as today marks World Religion Day. Are you a church member but not a follower of Christ? You claim to be born again, yet you find nothing bad in keeping godless companies and commit all kinds of atrocities. You are fuelling the inferno! You have been hearing the gospel, but have continually rejected Christ as Saviour, you are also fuelling the inferno. Yield totally to God today, and save yourself the impending doom that is looming on this wicked world. You are playing with fire, if you are part of the nefarious marketers.
