11 Jun Revelation 21:8

8 But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The essence of lying is a serious thing. Often, we see how one lie can turn into many just to cover up the first lie that was told. Here in Revelation, we see the seriousness of lying as it’s included with many other sins. The Bible tells us we are made in the image of God. God is the truth and cannot lie, therefore hell is what we deserve because of our nature. Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross we have new life. This is why liars are clumped together with “cowards, those who refuse to believe, who do evil things, who kill, who sin sexually, who do evil magic, who worship idols…” all of which started or are tied to a lie. We must not be deceived by the lies in our society because it will lead us to places we would never want to be. Understand the enemy is a liar and we must seek the truth, which is Jesus. Have you gotten yourself wrapped up in something because of a lie? Ask God to help you find comfort in Him because your eternal destination is on the line.
