 50F.   Those Who Will Not Be Allowed to enter the Holy City

 


Knowing the splendor and radiance of the Holy City, it is understandable why it is the fervent hope of millions to gain a foothold in heaven. but let us be reminded that there are people who are not allowed to enter it. 

50G.1   Who are those who will not be allowed to enter the holy city?

In Revelations 21:27  it says:

Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful,  but only those whose names are written in the Lambs book of life. (NIV)

The same verse in the other versions of the Bible:

But nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life. (NRSV)

Nothing evil will be allowed to enter-no one who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty-but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life. (New Living Translation)

Nothing impure, unclean or evil  will ever be permitted to enter the Holy City; no one who is deceitful, who practices falsehood or do immoral things shall be allowed to enter it.

50G.2   What are some of the various sins or, transgressions done by people who will be prevented from entering the kingdom of God?  

In I Cor. 6: 9-10, this is written:

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived?  Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  (NIV)

Everyone  must realize that wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Who are some of their sins?

They live wicked lives. They commit sexual sin. They worship false gods. They commit adultery. They are perverts. They are homosexuals. They steal. They are greedy. They are drunkards. They say terrible things about people. They rob people. People like this won't enter the kingdom of God.

50G.3  Are there other deeds that may prevent people entrance to the holy city?

Christ declares plainly in Luke 9:62:

But Jesus said to him,  "No one having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." (NKJV)

They are those who look back are not fit for the Kingdom of God.

50G.4   Who are those who look back while his hand is on the plow?

In Hebrews 10:38-39, Apostle Paul explains it further, thus:

But my righteous one will live by faith,  And if he shrinks back,  I will not be pleased with him.   But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed,  but of those who believe and are saved. (NIV)

Those who look back or shrink back are those who return back to their old wicked ways. God will not be pleased with them, making them unfit for the Kingdom of God and will be destroyed on Christ second coming. 

Those who's faith has made them good in God's sight must continue to live by faith, trusting Him in everything. Otherwise, if they draw back or shrink back, God will not be pleased with them, making them unfit for the Kingdom of God and will be destroyed on Christ second coming
