The lost will know loss
For a moment, consider all that you are and all that you have, but without Christ. There is NO HOPE outside of Jesus Christ. Nothing that a lost man has will be retained in Hell. All will be lost!
Job 27:8 “For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained,
when God taketh away his soul?”
1. Loss of hope because there will be no one to hear his prayer.
V9-10 “Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?”
2. Loss of relationships
V14-15 “If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.”
3. Loss of possessions
V16-19 “Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay; He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh. The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered:
he openeth his eyes, and he is not.”
LESSON - All that will remain for those who have rejected the Savior is everlasting terror and eternal separation from the God who provided the solution which they chose not to receive. V20-22 “Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night. The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place. For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.” Recent events have reminded me that I must not see people as they are, but as they will be in eternity. While time remains, THERE IS A HOPE!!
