Revelation 21:8 - The Cowardly
|"The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral,
those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars
- their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
The dictionary says the definition of cowardly is
having or showing a lack of courage. It is also
described as a failure to stand up for principle.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the
faith; be men of courage; be strong.
(1 Corinthians 16:13)
Jesus said, "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him
before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him
before my Father in heaven.
Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring
peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn 'a man against his father, a daughter against
her mother, a daughter-in-law against her motherinlaw — a man's enemies will be the
members of his own household.'
Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who
loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take
his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and
whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." (Matthew 10:32-39)
Many people say they know Jesus, but the question is, "Does He know you?"
If you do not acknowledge Jesus before men, you can have assurance on Judgement Day
He will say he never knew you.
