Pure From Others’ Blood

We cannot shun to declare the whole counsel of God. The whole counsel of God, and not just the comfortable and sweet parts, must be proclaimed. Those parts which are convicting and uncomfortable must be spoken and not left out. Otherwise, we will have the blood of those we are speaking to on our hands. So when we are in positions of sharing God’s word, we must intend to share all of it. Paul says,

"Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God." [Acts 20:26-27]

The LORD warns us through Ezekiel as well. He says that if we fail to warn those whom God has told us to we will have their blood on our hands. We must be careful to declare all the counsel of God: especially the parts about Hell.

"When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand." [Ezek 3:18-20]

CONCLUSION

We must be mindful to boldly proclaim all of God’s word: the glorious truth that The Father offers us through faith in Jesus Christ – eternal paradise with a loving God, and also the solemn warning of Hell – all those who reject faith in the Jesus of The Bible, no matter how morally good, will face eternal and conscious destruction separated from the God that loved them and wished them to live.
