TOPIC: THE DESTINY OF THE WICKED
(SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is no destiny for the wicked, and there can be no future for the disobedient.
Destiny refers to a person’s future or the actualization of God’s purpose for one’s life.
It is established that there is no one on earth who exists without a definite destiny. God has a purpose for everyone. And your character determines your destiny, your habit determines your habitat, your manners confirm your making.
The wicked are the disobedient, the rebellious, the carnal, the immoral, the diabolic, the corrupt, the robbers, the murderers and all those who live contrary to the Word and principles of God. The truth is, there is no destiny for the wicked, and there can be no future for the disobedient other than destruction and damnation in hell.
Beloved, what is the destiny of smokers, drunks, womanizers, prostitutes, cheats, liars, backbiters, gossips, ritual killers, etc. if they refuse to repent? What is the fate of the armed robber who went to rob a family and after robbing, raped the only daughter in that family who was even a virgin and possibly infected her with the HIV virus? God forbid! What kind of future awaits such a wicked agent of the devil on earth and in eternity? What is the destiny of the hired assassin, who was paid to kill, and he killed a man rendering the man’s wife a widow and the children orphans? What is the destiny of people who derive demonic pleasure in taking the lives of defenceless innocent people; ripping open pregnant women, cutting off human organs and dismembering the slain? What is their destiny other than damnation and eternal torments in hellfire? Hellfire is the Destiny of such people!
Beloved, I counsel you to make your ways right with God; do not join a person who has made up his mind to go to hell. If you cannot bring him to heaven, do not follow him to hell.
REMEMBER THIS: There is no destiny for the wicked, and there can be no future for the disobedient.
1. Ask God for mercy in any way your actions in time past inflicted pain on people.
2. If possible, prayerfully meet those persons your actions have hurt to ask them for forgiveness.
3. Determine to show love to all that come in contact with you. Live right; shun the lifestyle of wickedness.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. Help me not to be a source of pain to people. Order my steps away from wickedness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
