This message was preached at New Testament Christian Fellowship in Claremont, NC on July 11, 2021. The focus is the sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars who are in line for the Lake of Fire (Revelation 21:8). In America today, we are compassed about by these on every side. The word righty translated “sorcery” in this verse is the same Greek word from which we get the English words “pharmacy,” and “pharmacist.” Simply put, most medical treatment in America today, so heavily reliant upon drugs and the hypochondria of a spiritually destitute people, is plain old SORCERY. The health & safety mantra is SORCERY. The Covid hysteria is SORCERY. America is a nation of hypochondriacs who dabble in sorcery for peace of mind. America is also a nation of IDOL WORSHIPPERS who fashion a god or a jesus in their own minds to serve their own lusts and pleasures. And then, there are the LIARS, all the liars. We are surrounded and vexed by them on every side. All these shall have their lot in the Lake of Fire. A Christian who falls into these things can’t lose his soul, but he does stand to lose a lot: the joy of his salvation (Psalm 51:12), his testimony (I Corinthians 15:33-34, Revelation 2-5), his health (I Corinthians 11:30), heavenly rewards (I Corinthians 3:13-15), his Millennial inheritance (Luke 19:12-26), and perhaps even his earthly life (I Corinthians 11:30, I John 5:16-17). Who wants to lose these things and be ashamed before the LORD? Yes, the Christian can lose much by falling into these things, but he is still a Christian, a child of God. Thus, He is disciplined by a FATHER so that He will not be condemned with the world (I Corinthians 11:32).
