The Righteous are Worthy to Escape the Wrath of God Pt 2b

©2021 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot

 III. Like in OT (1Cor 10 -God not pleased...die in desert) Paul warns born-again believers of wrath & loss of blessing/glory for their unfaithfulness (1Cor 3; 9; 2Cor 4-7; Col 3; Eph 5 etc) as does Hebrews (5x), Peter, John, and Jesus (Mt 7; 23-23; Lk 12; Rev 2-3; 22)

 A. Believers who know God and the Truth, but don't glorify nor thank Him disqualify themselves from future blessing/glory

 B. Depending on what they seek, believers can be: righteous and get glory, or unrighteous and get wrath (not unforgiven)

Rm 2:3 think you will escape judgment? Lk 21:36 Heb 2:3 4 goodness of God leads to repentance 5 stubborn unrepentant heart treasures up cx self  wrath for The Day of wrath & revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render/pay to each acc to his deeds: Rev 2:23 7 who persist in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality ®Eternal Life (Dominion of THE AGE):8 contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness Rm 6&8, indignation and wrath: 9 ®Tribulation and anguish... does evil 10 Glory, honor, and peace, to every man that works good 11 no respect of persons with God 13 not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified

 Rm 5:9 being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath thru Him 6:13 Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God 12:19 avenge not...give place to wrath: for vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says Lord 2Pt 2:13 reward of unrighteousness

IV. Unrighteous believers who live for their desires (rather than desire/will) don't serve Christ, nor get inheritance

A. Believers w/ carnal minds die, those led by indwelling HS, kill the flesh, are sons who get dominion and peace

Rm 8: 5 who live acc to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh...who live acc to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead 'cse of sin, but the Spirit is life 'cse of righteousness.11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies thru His Spirit who dwells in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors --- not to the flesh, to live acc to the flesh.13 For if you live acc to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

 B. Believers following satan's will, get wrath - no inheritance; overcomers who endure get promised reward of inheritance

Eph 2:3 past walked acc to course of world, acc to the prince of power of the air, spirit that now works in sons of disobedience: Among whom we lived fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 5:5 covetous...no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience. 11 no fllshp but reprove 14 awake..arise..get light   1Cor 6:9 Know...unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: 10 covetous, revilers..shall not inherit kingdom of God.   Col 3:24 receive reward of the inheritance for you serve Lord Christ

Heb 6:12 be not lazy/slothful/dull/sleepy (LS)/wo care, but followers of them who thru faith and patience inherit the promises.

Rev 21:7 He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Rm 8:14-17 led by HS; 24 adopt=hope

 C. Sleepy believers who fail to soberly watch, work & obey don't obtain rest/glory, but wrath and destruction/loss vs blessing

1Th 1:9 turned to serve 10 wait for His Son from heaven, raised ek dead, Jesus, delivered delivers (pres) us from wrath to come

1Th 5:2 know perfectly that The Day of the Lord...thief  3 say, peace & safety; sudden destruction comes upon them...they shall not escape 4 brethren, are not in darkness, That Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all the children of light...day: not of night, nor darkness 6 ? let us not sleep, as do others; watch & be sound minded. 8 us of the day, be sober, put on breastplate of faith & love; helmet-hope of salvation 9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain# salvation/(glory-2Th 2:14) by our Lord JC

Heb 10:38 just live by faith: draw back Gal 2:12 no pleasure in him..39..destruction; believe to the saving/purchase# of the soul

 D. Steadfast-in-hope, tender-hearted followers experience Christ's glory, while unfaithful deceived believers experience wrath

 Col 1:21 alienated Eph 2:12 enemies m/wk reconciled 22 thru death, to present you holy, and blameless, above reproach in His sight ---23 IF indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel

 Heb 3:6 whose house we are IF we hold fast the moral freedom/confidence 4:16 and (ground of) boasting of the hope firm to the end 7 Today if you will hear subj do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion..10 They always go astray in their heart..not known My ways 11 swore in My wrath: not enter into My rest 12 Beware, brethren, lest..in any of you an evil heart of unbelief-unfaithfulness in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today" lest any of you be hardened thru the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the origin- beginning of our confidence/title 11:1 steadfast to the end 17 grieved 40 years? Sinned..carcasses fell? 18 whom He swear they not enter into His rest...them that believed not? 19 see they could not enter in because of unbelief/unfaithfulness (v12 Mk 16:14; Rm 11) 4:1 Let us ? fear lest a promise...entering into His rest, any of you be found to come short Rm 3:23 of it. 2 gospel preached, did not profit them, not being mixed with faith 3 For we who have believed believe (aor) enter into rest, as He said, 9 There remains ?  a rest to people of God 11 Let's labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any fall after example of disobedience

Rev 6:17 great Day of His wrath come; who shall be able to stand? 14:7-13 Fear God, give glory to Him; hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, 9  If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark 10 shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out..and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and the Lamb 12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 13 Write, Blessed...die in the Lord...that they may rest from their labors; their works do follow them (basis of blessing)
