For our God is a consuming fire. Heb. 12:29
Many people are familiar with the concept of a loving and kind God, the good shepherd who loved, cared and laid down his life for his sheep. This is true as the bible says God is Love (1John 4:8). However, this is not the only revelation of God that we have in his word. Our text says ’our God is a consuming fire. In Exodus, God said he is a jealous God (Ex 20:5) he is also the lion of the tribe of Judah. Rev 5:5
God will show himself as the God of love to the sinner who is ready to repent and surrender his/her life to him. He showed his love to the whole world by sending his only begotten son to come and die for our sins. He is also the good shepherd to the obedient sheep of his pasture.
However, to the unrepentant sinner, the backslider and apostate, to the one who compromises and live in sin (secret or open), for those who take the grace of our God for granted, he will one day show himself as the CONSUMING FIRE. He will sit in judgement with his eyes as a flame of fire (Rev 2:18). Before whom men will say to the mountain and rocks, fall on us and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the lamb (Rev 6:16) The bible warned us in Heb. 10:31 that ‘it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God’. He is the one that has the power and is ready to cast the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters and all liars, into the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Rev 21:8
Beloved, I am pretty sure that this is not how you want to meet with God, with an angry and fiery countenance, ready to punish your sins. Know that God is angry with the wicked every day (Psalm 7:11) Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men (2Cor.5:11) to make their ways right with God. I counsel you today to accept the offer of Love God is extending to you today, so you can avoid his wrath. If already a Christian, then you must decide to be faithful to God and above sin at all cost.
You can do so by praying this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I believe you came and died for my sins. Today, I surrender my life to you. Please forgive me all my sins, wash me by your blood, and be my Lord and Saviour. Thank you for saving me. Amen!”
If you pray this prayer and you meant it, then you are now a child of God (John 1: 12). You need to get a Bible and read it daily, and also take time to pray to God and avoid every form of sin. Locate a Bible believing church around you to attend regularly.
