Rahab – A Fresh Start Through Faith

When Rahab came back from the kitchen, she saw that the inn was brimming with patrons. It was a busy night, and between the full moon and the new wine, the crowd was getting rambunctious. But that was to be expected from the clientele that came to Rahab’s. For hers was a house of ill repute, and the men that frequented the inn weren’t exactly looking for a quiet evening.

October 28th – Revelation 2:11

Revelation 2:11

God’ Promise – “Those who overcome will not be hurt by the second death.”

We will all die once in the flesh. Made from dust, our bodies will return to dust. And while non believers fear dying, Christians know the glory awaiting us. For never again will we be apart from God. In our new glorified bodies, we will dwell and reign with the Lord for eternity. But those who refuse God’s gift of pardon, will not only face one death, but a far worse second death. The second occurs when those who reject God will be cast into the lake of fire, and eternally separated from Him. Once this judgment has been pronounced there is no coming back. A judgement God wishes for no one. That’s why in His mercy, He gives all a chance to receive Jesus as their Savior. For as 2 Peter 2:9 tells us, “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”
