God requires Christians to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ without hesitation.
We must inform people about Jesus’ gift of salvation, and punishment that will come on people who refuse to believe Him.
The scripture stated, “Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand”— (Joel 2:1 NIV)
Lesson for Christians to Preach Gospel
This present world will remain a temporal home for all people.
Everyone will migrate from here to a permanent destination.
However, not all people will end at the same place.
Some people will end up in heaven while others will end up in hell.
People who would be qualified for heaven are those who have believed in Jesus Christ and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior.
Unbelievers will end up in hell fire where there shall be everlasting torment (Matthew 25:41).
Hence, anyone who is yet to establish a good relationship with Jesus Christ should not hesitate before it is too late.
Since the danger of hell is imminent on the unbelievers, Christians are mandated to go out of their way to share their faith with unbelievers so that they can have a chance to gain salvation.
It is written,
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word!
Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry (2 Timothy 4:1-5 NIV).
Prayer for God’s grace to Preach the Gospel
Dear God, please let your fire of evangelism burn in me to preach the gospel.
Empower me to ceaselessly proclaim your gospel so that unbelievers can come to the knowledge of your Son Jesus Christ. As I preach, let people respond.
Give them the grace to change their mind so that they can escape the punishment of hell, but be qualified for blessings of heaven. Please keep your people fit for your kingdom.
The scripture described Satan as a traitor who wanted to usurp the position of his master. The traitor fell from grace, and Jehovah who is the master of all judged him immediately.
Satan the Lucifer will be permanently hurled to hellfire on the last day.
The scripture explained, “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit” (Isaiah 14:12-15).
The lesson to Learn from Satan Who Is Doomed for Hell Fire
Satan abused his position in heaven, and God promised to cast him to the eternal damnation of hellfire.
Although the arch-enemy may still be causing an uproar on earth, his time is limited. He will not trouble the world forever!
When God’s appointed time come, Satan would be chained and cast into the unquenchable fire of hell.
He will remain there permanently. However, it is unfortunate that the enemy might have some company in hell.
Those who fall for his deceits on earth will share hellfire with him (Matthew 25:41).
Meanwhile, everyone has a choice to either follow the devil to hell or follow Jesus to heaven.
All it takes to go to heaven is a confession of sin and the declaration of Jesus Christ as the true son of God.
Anyone who confesses Jesus as Lord and accepts him as his/her personal Savior will be saved (Rom 10:9-10).
Prayer of Victory over Satan and Hell Fire
Dear God, I understand that Satan (devil) is bound to go to hellfire, but I do not want to follow him there.
I want to follow Jesus Christ to heaven. Therefore, I confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and I accept him as my personal Savior.
I believe he died on the cross for my sins, and I believe that he resurrected to give me eternal life.
I confess Jesus Christ as Lord today, and I will serve him forever! So help me God. Amen!
It is erroneous for any Christian to think that he was saved through his own work.
No one is saved by his efforts, but we are saved by grace through Jesus Christ.
The scripture emphasized, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9
Saved by Grace Lesson
Christians are fortunate to have someone who paid for the penalty of their sins. Since we have believe in Jesus Christ, Christ has gravitated us with God through his saving grace.
The Savior paid for our sins with his own life. He volunteered himself to suffer and die on our behalf as a sacrificial lamb.
We are no more indebted to paying penalty of sin.
Christ has paid our debts; he has saved us; he has cleansed us, and he has transformed us! Christ has made us become new, and we are no more the same old person in sin. Old has gone, new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
We Christians are the redeemed people of God, and crown of glory is awaiting us in heaven.
Meanwhile, none of all benefits of Christianity is awarded to us through hard work or self-righteousness.
We are saved and blessed by God – through Jesus Christ. Glory be to his holy name!
Prayer on Salvation By Grace
Dear God, I praise you for saving me through your beloved Son Jesus Christ.
I understand that you have not saved me as a result of my personal works, but you have saved me by grace.
Therefore, my life will remain dedicated to praising your name!
I will praise you always for saving me by grace.
Please, I ask for more grace to remain faithful to you.
Do not let me abuse my salvation with sin, but help me to live a sanctified life that will remain fit for your kingdom.
Empower me through your Holy Spirit to keep focus and remain serving you until the end of my life, so that I can meet you in heaven.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
