Isaiah 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, And with hell are we at agreement; When the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
God’s people utterly refused to believe the Bible, the Word of God. They chose lies instead. They chose what they knew wasn’t right and began to fortify themselves there. They comforted themselves by constantly denying reality. They denied reality so long that the lie became perceived and accepted the truth. This gave them more comfort. They could now lay down and sleep knowing the lies they told themselves at least gave them the sense that it would all be ok.
That is constant now. Some lies that are often accepted are that everyone passes over to the next life with others there to comfort them. They are not alone. The atmosphere warms with the presence of those that have gone before taking them to the other side to be with them in the next life. There is no reality or fact to this myth.
Another lie used as an excuse is that God is so loving that no one would ever really go to Hell. They ignore what the Scriptures say because they make us uncomfortable.
How about this one, everyone will be alright. All will be forgiven, and God will save everyone. No truth at all in this statement.
All paths lead to God. There are many ways to do what is right with God. You can believe what you want as long as you believe it with all your heart. Not true at all.
Lie after lie is what people tell themselves. They seek comfort that God offers but on their own terms. The real problem is they do not want to honor and serve God.
Are you hiding out in lies and falsehoods? Wake up and come to the truth.
