How to Go to Hell
Rev 22: 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
The word sorcerers used here is pharmakos (far-mak-os’ )
the same as 5332; ; adj
AV-sorcerer 1; 1
1) pertaining to magical arts
Another version states: pharmakos is ‘one who administers mind altering potions’.
Phew! Opens the door to a whole lot of people in today’s society.
Obviously, it means witch doctors and medicine men, but now we have the drug dealer on the corner, the one who runs the crack house across town.
But what about the tavern or bar owner, the bartender that serves alcohol to drunks, making merchandise of their addiction. Of course it must include the crooked doctors and pharmacists, that prescribe ‘recreational pharmaceuticals’, drugs to attempt to medicate hurting folks who actually need God, not another prescription. These people, will not enter the kingdom of God.
Then there are ‘whoremongers’ pornos por’-nos This is the word from which we get the modern word pornography, or porno movies. It describes: 1) a man who prostitutes his body to another’s lust for hire 2) a male prostitute 3) a man who indulges in unlawful sexual intercourse, a fornicator. Looks like the seductive lure of pornography, the immorality of the party scene, and actual prostitution, will keep a person out of heaven.
I think the terms murderers, and liars are self explanatory, these have no part in the kingdom of God, makes me think of the end of crooked politicians, businessman, and now I am discovering, supposed ministers of the gospel.
“and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Those that lie, and love the result of a lie, will go to hell.
Now, let’s look at the actual definition of ‘idolater’ here. 1) a worshipper of false gods, an idolater
1a) used of any one even Christian, participant in any way in the worship of the heathen, esp. one who attends their sacrificial feasts and “eats of the remains of offered victims”
This sounds horrible right? Yet, now we discover that aborted human fetuses are being processed and added to make-up, and are possibly used in the food and supplement industry: http://www.skepticfiles.org/mys2/deadbaby.htm
2) a covetous man as a worshipper of Mammon
Money makes a tremendous tool and servant, but a lousy god. It must be mastered, and governed by the Lordship of Jesus and leadership of the Holy Spirit: Worshipped, it will drag a person to hell.
I have written much on the topic of riches and wealth, because I am convinced that God wants to prosper us financially, His way. https://www.chrisaomministries.com/2016/02/26/money-simply-makes-more-of-you/
These things I mentioned, are ways to go to hell, but Jesus loves you, and came to forgive – His mission forever will be to seek and save the lost: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/the-gospel-the-power-of-god/
‘Father, purify me of all my lying ways and deeds. Have mercy upon me, and forgive me where I have given myself to these things. Deliver me from the power of them, and cleanse me of all my uncleanness’s. In your name I pray Lord Jesus. Amen’
