ALL LIARS? BY STEVE FINNELL
The apostle John said in Revelation 21:8...and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
When John said; AND ALL LIARS, who was he referring to, could it be all who lie about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the gospel plan of salvation, and the truth of God's word?
John8:31-44 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him......44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Obviously those Jews who had believed asked for a wavier from, once saved always saved, seeing that Jesus said they were of their father the devil. Even believers can be liars. They said Jesus had a demon(John 8:48).
The devil lied about God to Eve, Genesis 3:1-4....3.... God has said, 'You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.' 4 The serpent said to the woman . "You will not surely die!
The devil is the father of ALL LIARS.
There are some today who say, in a manner of speaking. "You will not surely die." They say water immersion has absolutely nothing to do with forgiveness of sin and entering into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 16:15-16 And He said to them...16...has been baptized shall be saved....) There are many who say you do not have to be baptized in water to be saved or to enter the kingdom of God. They are in effect are saying you can reject the purpose of water baptism or reject baptism altogether because, "You will not surely die."
Is Jesus the liar or is it the ones saying "You will not surely die?"
Can you get away with lying to God? Acts 5:3-5 But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit.....4....You have not lied to men but to God." 5 And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breath his last...
Was Ananias included in the ALL LIARS group?
Are those who lie about the gospel included in the ALL LIARS CLUB? (Galatians 1:9 As we have said before,so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be be accursed!)
Jesus said the devil was the father of lies, but I doubt it was because the devil told Eve, she did not look fat in that fig leaf. The devil lied about God, he encourages others to lie about Jesus, he prompts men to lie about the the reliability of God's word by saying God's word has been mistranslated and cannot be trusted. The devil has convinced many to lie about the terms of pardon for sin.
When Jesus said "ALL LIARS" will have their part in the lake of fire, WHO WAS HE TALKING ABOUT?
