Read Introduction to 1 Peter

 

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”
 
 
what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
 
If there is no question that God disciplines the church then there is no question that he will discipline those who reject him.
 
The “end” is the final fate of those who do not know Christ. What is the final disposition of those who reject the gospel? The striking question is “What shall the end be?” The Bible answers this clearly – they will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Re 20:15). That is the end of non-Christians. What a future for those without Christ!! 
 
“Do not obey” means to refuse to believe. These people deliberately disobey the gospel. The Greek indicates that they habitually refuse to believe. When non-Christians see Christians out of fellowship, do they stop associating with the Christian? No. They deliberately reject the message of the Christian. 
 
PRINCIPLE: 
 
Those who turn negative volition to God, God will judge eternally.
 
APPLICATION: 
 
If you have never turned positive volition to God’s message, God will sovereignly deal with you. God’s only solution to the sin question is the death of Jesus for our sin. If we reject that message God has no other alternative but to cast you into the Lake of Fire.
