The World is a Graveyard
The world is a vast moral graveyard! A graveyard is a burial ground for the dead! When humanity is born into existence they are born into a world of sin and death. This Bible says Satan is the god of this world
Being that Satan is the father of all lies and is a thief and a murderer therefore the characteristics of this world reflect satans character. This world is headed into death with all its inhabitants. No one will escape the grave and all are born into the graveyard of this dying and damned world.
The ultimate graveyard for the eternal dead !
“Hell from beneath is excited about you, To meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, Isaiah 14:9 NKJV
“As drought and heat consume the snow waters, So the grave consumes those who have sinned. The womb should forget him, The worm should feed sweetly on him; Job 24:19-20 NKJV
“Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.’”Isaiah 14:11 NKJV
““But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— where ‘Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched.’” Mark 9:42-44 NKJV
“So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not of a man!” Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died.” Acts 12:21-23 NKJV
“And it shall come to pass That from one New Moon to another, And from one Sabbath to another, All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the Lord. “And they shall go forth and look Upon the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, And their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.” Isaiah 66:23-24 NKJV
So if we are born into this moral graveyard and Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death and we all are sinners, what is the answer?
Ephesians 2:1 says we were dead in trespasses and sin
Mankind tries to perfume their dead corpse
From within the grave of death mankind takes God promises and utter them to the Lord yet the Lord would say….
“But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to declare My statutes, Or take My covenant in your mouth,” Psalms 50:16 NKJV
Romans 3:10. There is no one good
“friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” James 4:4 NKJV
The only thing holding mankind back from an eternal damnation in hell is the heartbeat within their chest
Imagine being in this state of death with absolutely no hope. This seemingly chamber of death with no hope of ever getting out. Then you happen to hear these words
“For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.” John 5:21 NKJV
This my friend is a drop of water and the only drop of water upon the tongue of a damned soul
The rich man in Luke 16 while in hell longed for a drop of water
This statement by the Father is a statement of truth. He raise me the dead
“For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.” John 5:22-23 NKJV
I’m told the way!
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live” John 5:24-25 NKJV
Pentecost is about the life of God coming upon a dead soul and making it alive
“for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.” John 5:28-29 NKJV
John 11:25. I am the resurrection
Mark 5:41 Jarius daughter he says arise
Luke 7:14 he stops a funeral procession of a young man and says “Get up”
God writes His laws upon our hearts when He awakens us
“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Jeremiah 31:33
“For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, And ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, Streaming to the goodness of the Lord— For wheat and new wine and oil, For the young of the flock and the herd; Their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, And they shall sorrow no more at all. “Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, And the young men and the old, together; For I will turn their mourning to joy, Will comfort them, And make them rejoice rather than sorrow. I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 31:11-14 NKJV
