Gamble is only playing games of chance, particularly for money, or act in the hope of something being successful, true, etc., despite the risk of loss. Gaming is a thing one does with a risk of loss and chance of profit. The question that came into my mind as the subject of gaming is being discussed is this, should the dewapoker issue of eternal consequence be handled as a game of chance? The answer should have been ‘NO’, yet it is very obvious that, many people today, especially, in the Church are gaming with the eternal destination of their souls. There is life after death. Death is not the end. After death comes judgment and all will be there to give account of how they have lived their lives here on earth.
Everlasting nature is time without end, a long time that seems endless. Everlasting nature matches unceasing, forever, time without end, endless ages. There are two side today. Everlasting nature in enjoyment of heaven, and everlasting nature in torments of hell. Entrance into the enjoyment of heaven modern day is by choice and not a game of chance. Everlasting nature is not one billion years, but an endless year; it is immeasurable and numerous, and it is not timed but eternal. It is very unfortunate that many people are trading away their everlasting nature with God as if it is within a limited time. It is heart-breaking together sees people taking decision that involves their eternal success as if there is a second chance. Jesus’ counsel on vying to enter heaven should be given serious consideration, especially this time.
Man is a blend being, composed of the body, the soul and the spirit. The body is housing the soul which houses the spirit. The soul and the spirit of man does not die. A person’s soul is worth more than depends upon put together. Lack of this knowledge will make one to play the game of chances as Esau did. Judas and Demas sold their everlasting nature in hell because of material gain. Understanding of everlasting nature and the worth of your soul will make you not to sell the truth you have bought and to reject the enticing words of sinners, as well as safeguarding jealously what you have to ensure that your faith is not overthrown by the sleight of man who lie in wait to deceive.
One of the major characteristics or qualities of those who gamble with their everlasting nature is strong add-on to the mundane. The devils know this and so use things that relate to the material and the world as bait. He thought to God, who boasted about job’s integrity and faithfulness, that a negative touch on his material things and family will make him to bane God. In the Sort, Esau gambled away his birthright in order to match the immediate need of the material and blood which will not enter into heaven. Demas was a victim of add-on to the material, which lusts up against the spirit. The straightforward people of lies of Satan’s last days’ strategy are those provided to things that match the need of the material, such as miracles, material blessings, wealth, healing, and the satan takes benefit for wrong focus to mislead and overthrow the faith of the unwary. You need to persevere in the faith, otherwise an eternal irreparable mistake or slip or fall will occur. Remember that the satan is so clever and he does not appear as satan, so his ministers do not appear as ministers of Satan, but as ministers and angels of light. Your everlasting nature is in your hand. You have to resolve to keep to the rule of running the race of life to a successful end and to work through your solution with fear and tremulous.
