Revelation 21:5–8 (ESV)

The New Heaven and the New Earth (Part 2)

5And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. 7The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

 

 

We read in yesterday’s reading that God is creating a New Heaven and a New Earth.  In today’s reading, he says “Behold, I am making all things new.”  It is easy to overlook the next verse, but God is saying “Pay Attention!!!” when he says “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”  Just don’t remember it, but write it down!  What is so important?  Listen as he describes what happens to those who believe in Him and those who don’t.  “To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. 7The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”  Heaven and hell are very real.

 

 

I pray: O Lord, I repent of my sins and want to do better.  I cling to the saving faith you have given me and to the gift of forgiveness, eternal life, and salvation that was won by Jesus on the Cross.  Help me to not be distracted away from your kingdom.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
