“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 water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.””Revelation 21:6-8 NIV
When I read this the Holy Spirit high lighted to me the thirsty and the victorious. Those who hunger for the Lord will walk in victory because they will draw near with all their heart. A person who is thirsty greatly desires water with their whole being. Someone who is thirsty for the Lord and His presence will desire Him with their whole heart. There will be nothing else that satisfies.
But the Lord makes it very clear that those who are unbelieving, vile, sexual immoral, who practice magic arts will not enter God’s kingdom. There are some today who give God lip service. They have not given Him their whole heart. They may attend service and put on a great front when they are around believers. But in the depths of their heart they are still committed to the world and its ways.
There are some who will weep and mourn when they stand before Jesus Christ. They believe their good works and attending church will save them but they fail to give their heart to Jesus. The Lord will say to them away from me I never knew you. God can see past our lip service and there is nothing hidden from Him. Today if you have not given Him your whole heart, repent and turn from your wicked ways. Time is running out end the King comes soon. Turn from this world and give your heart fully to Jesus.
