Paul N. F. (17 Dec 2010)

    By A. W. Tozer
   Make me to go in the path of thy commandments,
    for therein do I delight.                Psalm 119:35

        I know that I am being repetitious---but this needs to be
    said again and again: our Lord will not save those whom 
    He cannot command!
        The lifetime God has given us down here is a lifetime of
    decisions.  Each person makes his own decisions as to the
    eternal world he is going to inhabit.  We must decide to
    take Jesus for what He is---the anointed Savior and Lord
    who is King of kings and Lord of all lords!
        He would not be who He is, if He saved us and called us
    without the understanding, that He can also guide us and
    control our lives.
        The root of sin is rebellion against God, and hell is the
    Alcatraz for the unconstituted rebels who refuse to
    surrender to the will of God.
        There are many arguments about the reality of hell.  A
    man might endure fire and brimstone and worms---but
    the essence of hell and judgment for a moral creature is to
    know and be conscious that he is where he is because he
    is a rebel!
        Hell will be the eternal domain of all the disobedient
    rebels who have said, "I owe God nothing!"
    Yours in Christ,
    Paul N. F.
