Hebrews 12: 25 See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns us from heaven. 26 And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” 27 This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let’s [j]show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is a consuming fire.
It is very difficult to read this passage and think of people that are close to me, that I love dearly because they are family, or I have endured trials and dangers with them to know that they have been blinded (and made deaf) by the god of this age (that is the devil) (See 2 Corinthians4:4) and are willfully walking into the oblivion of destruction.
What are we to do when all of our efforts to convince, cajole, demonstrate, and prove Jesus are exhausted? We must rely on the one weapon that God has given to us. PRAYER! 2 Corinthians 10: 3 For though we live as human beings, we do not wage war according to human standards, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God] for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments 5 and every arrogant obstacle that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ.
Revelation 12”11But they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.
