The Second Death


God’s Word explains God’s creation TRUTHFULLY to the created.

BUT, because most men are deceived, most men prefer the soothing lies of the world and Satan to God’s truth.

Therefore, MOST men live their lives according to the untruth they have received from Satan’s world–INSTEAD of God’s truth.

And so it is with the subject of the SECOND DEATH, which is covered in God’s Word. (MOST of what is said about the second death occurs during the final chapters of Revelation, which reveals the final disposition of God’s Creation.)

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
–Revelation 21:7-8

So, according to God’s Word (which is the TRUTH), the SECOND DEATH is the lake burning with fire and brimstone–which is the eternal abode of the wicked, evil and foolish.

How does one AVOID ending up in the lake which eternally burns with fire and brimstone?

God’s Word answers that question as well.

“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
–Revelation 20:6

Furthermore, it is stated how one may ACTIVELY avoid the SECOND DEATH by becoming an overcomer.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
–Revelation 2:11

God’s Word ALSO provides information on how to become an overcomer during the last days.  It has to do with overcoming Satan (the dragon).

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
–Revelation 12:11

Most men are taught by the world (and their churches) that the lake of fire is only a scary story told to the primitive-minded to keep them in line.

INSTEAD of the lake of fire being the SECOND DEATH, which is the reward of the wicked.

MANY readers believe ending up in a lake of fire for eternity is too horrible to contemplate.  Therefore, it MUST be a scary story.

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
–Revelation 20:14

HAS the reader put much thought into the second death?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
