Jesus says in the bible that many are called and few will be chosen . Jesus says many shall come and say we have done wonderful things . Jesus will tell them
1 I do not know you 2 Depart from Me . Will Jesus say this to non Christians only ? No it is also to the majority of Christians . Jesus said as it was in the days of Noah when only 8 persons were saved out of probably millions .
The same thing will happen soon . Why will most people end up burning in hell ? Why is this the case ? Why will most people not enter heaven ? Why will most people be destroyed in hell according to the bible ? Let us find out
This was a big problem before the flood , this is a big problem today . When humans trust their own mind and reasoning powers , they cannot trust in God at the same time . Either we trust humans or God . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Prophet Ellen White says that most people during the flood did not go into the ark because they trusted the wise men, the great men of the day .
They followed their reasoning powers instead of following the calls of God to get into the ark . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Following the crowd . Honest people believe the truth , they do not follow trends as they are honest and follow truth even if the majority says something else . Truth has nothing to do with majority opinions .
In our world it is staggering to see how many people judge a person by what a few person say about them . This is incredible that a grown intelligent human being cannot use their mind and the leading of God to decide something , they need to follow what other people are saying . Why would someone do that ? Don t they know that the majority of people are not of God , that this world is in rebellion against God ? That Satan is the leader of the world . Why would they continue to follow majority opinion and not the truth ?
Unbelief comes from being dishonest as all honest people will accept the truth, all dishonest people will reject the truth . This is how God will judge . He sends truth to people, the bible . And what people do with it will make the whole difference . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Because of unbelief . People look at what other people say and often they follow other people . Animals do that , but why would human do such a thing ? If everyone say oranges are triangles then most people will say oranges are triangles .
2 Following the world
It coast s lot to follow God and the truth and to go contrary to popular opinion . Martin Luther before the Pope was standing almost alone against the great religious powers of earth. But he said I will follow my conscience i cannot do other . Martin Luther saw the truth and he saw that God is the author of truth . That since Adam and Eve human beings have hearts that are deceitful above all things. Martin Luther saw that the only thing we can trust is the bible . Martin Luther followed truth rather than majority opinion and human reasoning .
The bible says that pride is the worse sin we can have . The cause of sin is pride , this is what made Satan to sin . The bible calls sin a mystery . But it says that because Satan was so beautiful and so intelligent , he started to think he was god . And he tried to take over the universe and the territory from God . Why will most people end up burning in hell ? Pride is at the head of the list .
Jesus says Without me you can do nothing . And Unless the branch is connected to the vine , or to God we have no life in ourselves we can do nothing . But many human beings do not recognize that God is the one blessing them, prospering them, giving them all they have and are . How few people realize how frail and insignificant human beings are without God .
Why will most people end up burning in hell ? Because of pride as many people because of pride refuse the truth, they stay with their false beliefs, they follow the crowd thinking that crowd mentality is more important than the truth .
In the bible we have several examples of people who were so proud God had to punish them King Nebuchadnezzar said This is the greatest city in the world and i did it all by myself . God had to humble him as a beast for 7 years to learn that the kingdom he had came from Gods power and not his own abilities .
DA 4 ' 16 Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him. 17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. ' God humbled the pride of the greatest king on earth to do what ? To the intent that the living know that the most high rules over the kingdoms of men and gives it to whomsoever he wills .
Herod was very proud and when people said he was a God for his oratory skills God killed him with great suffering . This is how offensive pride is for God . AC 12 ' 21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. 22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. '
Pride is lying to God , pride is stealing from God . If someone gives you a shirt and you say i bought it , you lie . All things come from God . We do not own anything , we do not deserve anything . God is the owner of all things. God glorifies people and humbles others . We do not bring anything ourselves , without God we cannot do anthing . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Because of pride .
4 Not accepting Jesus righteousness
This is a great reason why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Because most religious and non religious people are legalisms. They think humans have goodness ; this follows the sin we just saw of pride . The pride in our hearts refuses to realize that we have nothing good in us . While we refuse to see our our sinfulness , then we are lost . But this is the condition of most religious people , they are not any more saved than the pharisees who Jesus said you are of your father the Devil .
Not 1 in 100 in religious circles understands this topic . Righteousness by faith is the most important topic in the bible . Most people will be lost because of their pride they think they are good . Not only such people condemn and are very aggressive over the sins of others in a harsh manner, but they are blind to their own condition . Like the pharisees thought they were better than Jesus . Can you imagine a person who is so blind as to believe they are better than Jesus ? Incredible . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Because of refusing righteousness by faith .
Do you believe there is something good in you ? While you do you are unconverted and lost . Conversion comes when we understand none is good not one . RO 3 ' 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin... 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. '
We can be pastors and work for God ? But are not converted . We are lost. Someone who teaches others is even more responsible to give to others the truth of righteousness by faith
IS 53 ( 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. '
5 Following human reasoning
Little by little the truth of God is removed from human hearts and people trust human reasoning and human opinions . Let us understand that if God created the universe, then God is the only one who has truth, who can create truth and who can decide what truth is . No human being can create truth or decide what truth is . Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ?
Because many people think humans chose and decide what truth is . In the times of Noah many people did not get into the ark because they listened to the great men and the scientists of the day who said a flood could not happen . Everyone has a choice to make . To follow God which is often in the minority of to follow men . On which side do you stand ?
Had the antediluvian believed the warning, and repented of their evil deeds, the Lord would have turned aside His wrath, as he afterward did from Nineveh. But by their obstinate resistance to the reproofs of conscience and the warnings of God's prophet, that generation filled up the measure of their iniquity, and became ripe for destruction. .. But men had become so hardened by their persistent rejection of light that even this scene produced but a momentary impression Patriarchs and prophets p 97
It is indeed sad to see so many people not caring what truth is but following their own reasoning powers . A men a sea cannot with his reasoning powers know where he is . He needs a compass . Human reasoning is not powerful enough for a pilot to know where he is in the sky . Only the bible can lead you to know where you are and where you are going .
Do not trust men , trust God Why will most people end up burning in hell according to the bible ? Because they-follow frail men blind leading the blind Repeat after me Father God please forgive my sins , give me your righteousness help me to walk with you , give me the desires of my heart in the name of Jesus amen
