sermonette: What Happens to Those Who Don't Obey the Gospel?
David C. Grabbe
Given 10-Sep-18; Sermon #1451s-PM; 18 minutes
The Apostle Paul asks, "What will be the end of those who reject the Gospel?" The Beast and the False Prophet will be thrown into the Lake of Fire, as well as anyone who has received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The Trumpet Plagues and the Seven Bowl Plagues will bring about repentance on the part of some, but many others, so thoroughly hardened by their carnal nature, will ensure their doom in the Lake of Fire. The 4th Bowl plague will bring about a holocaust on those who refuse to obey God. Paul expected that those vile persecutors who tortured and murdered the saints would be destroyed and all memory of them erased. Mankind has a problem with finality, especially the prospect of eternal death. Those who choose to reject the Gospel are choosing the oblivion of the second death in the Lake of Fire.
