“And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10).
We were created to be eternal. Thrown into destruction forever is what it says. Do not speculate beyond what is spoken. We have set before us the narrow path of Jesus, or the broad way of rebellion. Walk with the Lord and know that in Him is true life and eternal hope. The deceiver would have you join him. The Lord offers you real life and there is no more that can be said. When the Lord returns and judgement is rendered, it will be too late.
Lord, You said that we are judged by our fruits. Although all our hearts are wicked and deceitful, you give a new heart to those who are reborn in You. It does not mean that we no longer sin, in the sense of breaking Your law, but that we are walking with You and so that our failures to obey are stumbles along the way. The fruit is the desire to seek You and Your ways in all circumstances and then do Your will.
Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth and life and You have demonstrated how to live amidst the wickedness of this age. It is not just a matter of me doing the right things, but about following You, who will teach me how to rightly live. Produce in me the fruits of the Holy Spirit and guide me according to Your goodness and mercy to walk the way of the righteous and flee from the way of the wicked. Amen.
