They have no hopes, no joy, no ease, no rest and no peace. They were Lovers of them selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to their parents unthankful, unholy. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despised those who are good. Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. They had a form of godliness but denied the power thereof. That what they knew naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupted themselves. Woe unto them!
The God-forsaken has only one tormenting thought of eternal regret. They find themselves in a place of immense pain and hatred. A place where the burning of never ending condemnation is unexplainably terrible. Yes they are the lost and they scream because of the eternal discomfort they brought upon themselves.
O the cry of the God forsaken will go up for ever and ever yet too late, and they know it. Would you believe that most of them didn’t expect it, they saw them selves as good people. They covered their sin and gloried in their shame. They made God out to be a liar and flat-out ignored His warnings, rebukes, law and salvation. We are the cutting edge Christians they cried, the men of God, yet He never new them.
O, God help us! How can the truth reach them who love the lies and have pleasure in unrighteousness? You see God has sent them a strong delusion, so they all might be dammed. Yet Lord was grieved when he saw the destruction of the wicked.
Go, cry aloud, hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
The very thought that people are in hell just because of unbelief, just again proclaims that, God’s righteousness is perfect. Full salvation, forgiveness, God even did everything to deliver them from sins dominion. There is not one in hell that could not go to heaven, for God would have all to be saved. He does not delight in the death of the wicked and has not warned them in vain.
The God forsaken were murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lust; and their mouth spoke great swelling words fearing man rater then God. “We knew Him.” some said, “We were prophets!” other will even boast. But little did they expect that God Himself would execute judgment upon them, and convince them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed, and all their hard speeches which they have spoken against Him.
O the total shock they had at death. Yes they are in burning anguish as we speak, because God forsook them. They are truly God forsaken!
Do not weary the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, where is the God of judgment?
Judgment is coming, therefore the question that remains is “are you forsaking God in your life?”, if so: Repent now, don’t think “one day I might”,
He said: “Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices."
