“The Self-Condemned Person”
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned. Titus 3:10-11
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world---the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life---comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “NO” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope---the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good. Titus 2:11-14
A SELF-CONDEMNED person is one who EMBRACES the world and its sinful vices, such as the LUST of the FLESH and EYES, and is PRIDEFUL about ALL their accomplishments in this world, no matter what they have to do to be so accomplished. They REJECT GOD and His laws. And they bring JUDGMENT upon themselves. They are people who are DECEPTIVE, DEVISIVE, and DOOMED. They are LOVERS of this WORLD and ALL it has to offer. They don’t think about their ETERNITY. I would venture to say that anyone who has died, and is in Hell, would tell you, if they could, that living for the WORLD is NOT WORTH the AGONY, HEARTACHE, PAIN, MISERY, TORTURE, TORMENT and DESPAIR that they are SUFFERING right NOW. They would BEG you to ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION, which is made possible because of His AMAZING GRACE and ABUNDANT MERCY.
They would tell you to say “NO!” to ungodliness and worldly passions. And to LIVE a SELF-CONTROLLED, UPRIGHT and GODLY LIFE in this present age, while waiting for the BLESSED HOPE, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the SAVIOR of ALL mankind.
He is the one who gave HIMSELF for us to REDEEM us from ALL wickedness, and also, to PURIFY for Himself a people that are His very OWN, who are EAGER to do what is GOOD. In order to NOT be a SELF-CONDEMNED PERSON, and have to spend ALL ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ESCAPE Hell, GAIN Heaven, and be PURIFIED as a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
