Even Demons Dare to Dream

Have you ever wondered, can I make it to Heaven? Even fallen angels wonder the same thing.

The truth is only three beings have their final judgment now. They are going to be damned to Hell forever. One is the Devil. The other two may not know their final judgment yet, they may not even be alive. They are two individuals found in the book of Revelation, the Anti-Christ and the false prophet. Revelation 20:10

Because of God’s great mercy even demons might make it back to Heaven. 2 Peter 2:4 tells us that demons haven’t received their final judgment yet.

A continuing hope in Christ is key for both them and us. If they have opportunity then like us they should be baptized (Mark 16:16) and confess their sins (1 John 1:9). It might be easy to lose hope in chains and darkness, but to both demons and men I say remember. Remember only three in the Holy Bible have already been judged, therefore to the rest of us – hope remains.

Mercy triumphs over judgment.

About

“The gospel is not about behavior modification.” – Joseph Prince

Matthew 9:12-13 KJV But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. [13] But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

So we see contrary to the opinion of Joseph Prince, Jesus came specifically for the behavior modification of sinners. This is inherent in the definition of repentance. Repentance is not only sorrow for wrong doing, but stopping the wrong or sinful behavior.

Repentance 

I have heard preachers over the years give various definitions for repentance. I think it’s a little like love, you’ll know it when you feel it.

But I don’t mean to wax too philosophical. Here is repentance according to God: 

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

True repentance is not only feeling sorry for your sins or actions, it is also not repeating them.
