  • And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12:9
  • Then shall he say also to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Matthew 25:41

Who are amongst the fallen?

  • Don’t you know that wicked people won’t inherit the kingdom of God? Stop deceiving yourselves! People who continue to commit sexual sins, who worship false gods, those who commit adultery, homosexuals, or thieves, those who are greedy or drunk, who use abusive language, or who rob people will not inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
  • These people complain, find fault, follow their own desires, say arrogant things, and flatter people in order to take advantage of them. Jude 1:16
  • You know very well that no person who is involved in sexual sin, perversion, or greed (which means worshiping wealth) can have any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Ephesians 5:5

What will GOD do to the fallen?

  • It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Look! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy angels, to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” Jude 1:15-15

What can you do to not be amongst the fallen?

  • Therefore, put to death whatever is worldly in you: your sexual sin, perversion, passion, lust, and greed (which is the same thing as worshiping wealth). Colossians 3:5
  • Never offer any part of your body to sin’s power. No part of your body should ever be used to do any ungodly thing. Instead, offer yourselves to God as people who have come back from death and are now alive. Offer all the parts of your body to God. Use them to do everything that God approves of. Romans 6:13

What can I do to please GOD?

  • Through Jesus we should always bring God a sacrifice of praise, that is, words that acknowledge him. Hebrews 13:15
  • And so, dear brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, I beg you therefore, to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Romans 12:1

  • Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. 1 Peter 2:11
  • That is why you are no longer foreigners and outsiders but citizens together with God’s people and members of God’s family. Ephesians 2:19
