Bible Questions Answered:

Bible Answer:

Bible Text:

Our Lord told the 1st Century Church of Laodicea, that they were lukewarm.

Revelation 3:16 KJV
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.

Many have denied The Lord Jesus, and many more will, but their judgment is set.

I John 2:22 KJV
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is The Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth

Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven.

Are the “Lukewarm,” lost?
Let's ask Jesus!

Revelation 3:16 KJV
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.

Emetic: That which causes vomiting.

I will spue thee out of My mouth.” This statement by our Lord, is a saying, of absolute disgust, and unspeakable loathing!

The Lukewarm, prefer a relationship with the world, and God, Baal, and The Lord, unbelief, and belief, wealth, and The Lord Jesus, Christ, and Belial,

A marriage of darkness and Light, which we know, just cannot be.

Matthew 6:24 KJV
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other..."

1 John 2:15 KJV
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of 
The Father is not in him.

Revelation 3:17 NLT ( Laodicean Church, a wealthy church)
knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

By Jesus saying this, He was stating the fact that, they did not have on a robe of righteousness.

Revelation 19:8 KJV (God's people.)
And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Isaiah 61:10 KJV
I will greatly rejoice in The Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a Bridegroom decketh Himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

What happens to those without a wedding garment of righteousness?
Let's ask Jesus.

Matthew 22:1-14 NLT Parable of the Great Feast
1 Jesus also told them other parables. He said,
2 “The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of A King who prepared a great wedding feast for His Son.
3 When the banquet was ready, he sent his servants to notify those who were invited. But they all refused to come!
4 “So He sent other servants to tell them, ‘The feast has been prepared. The bulls and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come to the banquet!’
5 But the guests He had invited ignored them and went their own way, one to his farm, another to his business.
6 Others seized His messengers and insulted them and killed them.
7 “The King was furious, and He sent out His army to destroy the murderers and burn their town.
8 And He said to His servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, and the guests I invited aren’t worthy of the honor.
9 Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.’
10 So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when The King came in to meet the guests, He noticed a man who wasn’t wearing the proper clothes for a wedding.
12 ‘Friend,’ He asked, ‘how is it that you are here without wedding clothes?’ But the man had no reply.
13 Then The King said to His aides, ‘Bind his hands and feet and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

The Lord Jesus Christ, has a message to a last day lukewarm church, and or individual, stop kidding yourself, you are...

Proverbs 16:25 KJV
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Romans 8:9 KJV
But ye are not in the flesh, but in The Spirit, if so be that The Spirit Of God dwell in you. 
Now if any man have not The Spirit Of Christ, he is none of His.

Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
21 Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.

A church of great zeal and fervency, and yet a church of “no,” holy, set apart living for The Lord Jesus. A church which thought it could “buy,” its way into heaven, through good works or money.
At best (says Jesus) they were hellish workers of iniquity, for they were on their way to judgment, but not only that they were evangelistic as to recruiting other poor souls, to blindly join them.

Ephesians 2:8,9 KJV
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is The Gift Of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

II Timothy 3:5 KJV
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

What is the answer, to lukewarmness?

Proverbs 28:13 KJV
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

I John 1:5-10 JKV
5 This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not
The Truth:
7 But if we walk in The Light, as He is in The Light, we have fellowship one with another, and The Blood Of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and The Truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us.

II Corinthians 6:14-18 NLT The Temple of the Living God
14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can Light live with darkness?
15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of
The Living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be My people.
17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says
The Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
18 And I will be your Father, and you will be My sons and daughters, says The Lord Almighty.”
