John the Baptist preached a “baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.” Pastor Hollandsworth dissects this message and explains why it is not to be equated with the gospel of grace by faith alone for salvation (i.e., regeneration). He also explains the terms “kingdom of heaven” and the “baptism in fire” (which is not hell) that will befall those who reject this message.
One of the promises for overcomers is that they will not be hurt of the second death. What does that mean? Pastor Hollandsworth – in the first of a two-part episode – describes the rewards for overcomers in Rev. 2-3, pointing out from the Scriptures that NOT all saints are overcomers. He offers a possible explanation as to how unfaithful believers could be hurt of the second death at the Bema.
At the Judgment Seat, “fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.” Many will “suffer loss.” Another passage says, “he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done.” What does this mean? And what is the stuff that burns? Why do so many teach that there is nothing to worry about? Pastor Hollandsworth discusses three inferior works that will be consumed at the Bema.
