THE ULTIMATE EVIL DESIRE

Dr. D. K. Olukoya

Wonderful God, we thank you for this message. We give you all the glory and all the honour, in Jesus’ name. Father Lord, minister to us through this message. Open our eyes in a new way. Thank you heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Our message this week concerns everyone. No matter how long we stay here on earth, there is a place we are going to stay longer. No matter the enjoyment we have here, there is a place of eternal enjoyment, where all the parties in the world and everything they have as pleasure cannot match. There is a better country, whose foundation was not made with hands. No matter what you accumulate here on earth, one day, it would end. Even if it were a human being, one day, the person would die. Everything in this world has an end. Every man has a compulsory appointment with the Almighty. That is why all the children of God who are serious about their spiritual lives should be interested in knowing the survival strategies of the last days because already the word of David is coming to pass. It says, “How are the mighty falling and the weapons of war perish.” A lot of mighty men and women of God are falling. Some have sold off the good things the Lord deposited into their lives in the lap of male and female Delilahs. A lot of churches have become cemeteries and the pastors are busy pouring water on dead bones every Sunday. It is very sad. The Lord showed me a vision in which I saw somebody preaching in the market place. But the interesting thing about the man preaching was that he was standing on the Bible, he was not reading it. He was standing on top of the Bible chanting incantations and people gathered and were listening to him. And the Lord said to me, “Son, this shall be more rampant in the last days. “The Lord showed a friend of mine the vision of hell fire and told him to go and warn His people not to come there because it is not meant for them. Any believer who goes there is trespassing.

Luke 22: 31 says, “And the Lord said, Simon, behold, satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat; but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not; and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” That is an example of evil desire, evil expectation, evil programme, evil prayer, evil plan and evil imagination. It means that the devil sat down, did his arithmetic and concluded that he must have Peter that he may sift him as wheat but the Lord had prayed for him. As far as the faith of Peter did not fail, there was no problem. The Lord went on to tell him that when he was converted, and had fully learned his lessons, he should strengthen his brethren. When you consider the process of sifting wheat, you would understand what the enemy wanted to do with Peter’s life. He wanted to trample upon Peter and make his life useless and demote his destiny. That was an evil desire.

The ultimate desire of the devil is to display Christians as trophies in hell fire. A certain woman said to her pastor on her deathbed, “Man of God, you have often spoken to me about Christ but you did not tell me enough about the implications of disobeying His commandments." But it was too late. A lot of people will blame their pastors for not telling them more about the eternal danger and about the fact that there is hell fire. Although the subject is not popular at all and is very unpleasant, it is more necessary than any other subject in the Bible. We need to always remind ourselves of the fact that hell fire is real. Some people treat any message that tells them about the end as a joke. But the Bible says that a day is coming when we shall all stand before God and give account of how we lived our lives.

The gates of hell are different from other gates. Most gates are used to keep people out of a place but the gates of hell are used to keep people in. It is unfortunate that most people think that all there is to life is to just come, work, marry, have certificates, acquire property, die, and go. No. Matthew 7: 13 – 14:“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction. And many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” This shows that many people are far away from meeting the requirement of the Almighty. No wonder He says few there be that find it. But many are those who are travelling the wide way. When the Bible says that something is few, the percentage can be amazing. It is like what you see in the land of Egypt. 600,000 men walked out and only two were saved. Millions of people died during the flood of Noah and only few were saved. Even some animals got salvation where human beings failed to get. So, as a matter of fact, many church goers have to do a lot more than they are doing now if they would make heaven. Some people lose their blessings immediately the service closes. They get upset and begin to yell at people around them. Such people are not going to heaven. Many Christians are into fraudulent businesses and they look for pastors to give their tithes and to pray for them. The Bible says, “Few there be that find it.”

About ten years ago, a sister came to me and said, “God has done a miracle in my life.” I asked her what it was all about and she said, “I have a visa and I am travelling abroad tonight. “I thanked God for her life and asked her what she wanted me to do. She said, “Pray for me and bless me before I go. I need your prayer sir.” I closed my eyes and I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit saying, “Ask her to show you her passport.” And I said, “Sister, can I look at your passport?” It took her a long time to bring it out. When she brought it out, she said, “I will tell you the truth because you are a man of God. This passport does not belong to me. It was posted to me from abroad because the owner resembles me a little bit. So I want to use it to travel.” I said, “Ah! You came to the wrong prophet. I am not going to pray for you. This is unrighteousness and God cannot bless a lie.” I told her that when a lie looks a blessing it is a design of the devil to destroy. “So you won’t pray for me?” she asked. I said no ma. Send this passport back to the owner.”She explained that she had already booked her flight. I told her to return the ticket to the airline, that she would only lose some money. When she found that she could not persuade me, she started crying saying, “I have been praying for this for a long time. I have been coming to this church and it is through you that God answered the prayer, and now, you are saying that you will not pray for me.” I refused to pray. Then she knelt down, held my legs and was begging. I told her to leave my legs. She took her bag, went out in anger and banged my door. She got to the airport in that rebellion and immediately the immigration officers saw the passport they knew it was not hers. They threatened to arrest her and she pleaded with them to leave her. So she left the place without the passport. It took me a year to know that she did not go, and she was telling people around that I refused to pray for her that was why she could not go. "Few there be that find it." If you received a demonic breakthrough, the breakthrough that is unrighteous, drop it because few there be that find it. Revelation 20: 11 says, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and there was found no place for them.” Verse15: “And whosoever was not found written in the Book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Whosoever, means chorister, general overseer, general superintendent, house fellowship leader, Sunday school teacher, etc. It is a terrible thing to end up that way.

The only qualification for which some people are put in places of position in their churches is because they are the only ones wearing London made suits and hats, and not because they can pray. Meanwhile those under them are witches, attacking them and they would not know because they cannot discern. "Few there be that find it." So many people would have made heaven easily if not for one pastor who gave them church posts. Some pastors would have made heaven if not for the fact that they went somewhere and were ordained pastors. Sometime ago, a certain pastor was waiting to see me and one of the people working with me made a mistake by calling him a brother. He got very upset and spoke harshly to the person. The way some people march around with their university degrees is like they should frame them and hang them on their necks.

Luke 16: 19 says, “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously everyday.” Wonderful fellow, he lived well, fed well and dressed well. Everything was okay with him. But verse 20 says, “And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores.” Verse 22: “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried.” May be the corpse of Lazarus was dumped in a bush but the Bible says that the rich man was buried. There was a proper burial ceremony with outing service and everything for him. Verses 23 – 24: “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham a far off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” (In hell fire, people‘s memory will not fail them. They would remember all that happened before they died.) And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house. For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they come into this place of torment.” That is the touching part of the story. We can see that He was a good man. He had sympathy. He loved his brothers and did not want them to suffer what he was already suffering, but it was too late. These passages should be of serious concern to any serious Christian.

Trophies are very rare things which people are proud of receiving. Recipients talk about them and show them off to people. But winning a trophy requires time, talent, energy and money sometimes. One occult woman, in her confession said that she was asked to bring down a man of God and for 23 years she was after him. Eventually, she got him. The powers of darkness did not mind to spend 23 years pursuing a person because they wanted to use him as a trophy in hell fire, and they succeeded. Just like hunters and fishermen, who study the habits of animals and fishes, satan studies each child of God. He knows who will explode when there is fire. He knows those who pray only when they have a bad dream or there is a problem. He also knows those who observe useless quiet time. He knows those who do not read the Bible and those who are living in sin and are trying to bribe God with deliverance. So, the devil tries to get the children of God to a place where he can work in their lives.

WHY DID THE DEVIL WANT PETER?

He wanted Peter because he was a trophy. Peter had become rare and special. Peter had a special calling. He had been promoted from an ordinary fisherman to a fisher of men and apostle of Jesus. The devil wanted to show off with Peter but he never got Peter. Every serious child of God is a trophy that satan is after. Cain became a trophy of hell when he killed Abel. There are many trophies from Sodom and Gomorrah in hell fire today. They parade them and say, “This was the one that married the daughter of that man called Lot. This was the one that wanted to rape an angel, etc - trophies in hell fire. Lot’s wife became a trophy of hell when she looked back. Judas became a trophy of hell because of the desire for money and power. Demas, the brother who loved the present world more than Jesus became a trophy of hell. God is going to have a trophy case to display in heaven. Will you become the trophy of Jesus or the trophy of hell? God’s trophies would hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Your name is in the Lamb’s Book of life, enter into the joy of your master.”

So, we disregard our destiny when we behave as if there is no hell. When you commit sin and something says, “Just one more time, after this one, repent,” and you go ahead to do it, you are behaving as if there is no hell fire and you are disregarding your destiny. These days, you find pastors beating up their wives, and we have reverend doctor Mrs. witches all over the place. We even have people now who are committing scientific fornication. What is scientific fornication? The white man has now manufactured artificial male and female organs which people can buy and convert to their husbands or wives. That is scientific fornication.

We disregard our soul’s destiny when we are reckless with the way we use our time. We disregard our soul’s destiny when we abandon fellowship, or refuse to do all that God commands us to do. We disregard our soul’s destiny when we refuse to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. We disregard our soul’s destiny when we go about with modern-day concept of hell fire. The modern-day man says there is no hell. When he gets there he will know. The modern -day man may say, “Well, it is only bad people who go there.” The rich man in the passage we read was a good person but he got there. The modern-day man says that hell is on earth here. If you are enjoying yourself, you are in heaven, if you are not enjoying yourself, it means that you are in hell. The modern- day man would tell you to ignore everything about hell fire and just live your life the way you see it now.

A certain scientist who specializes in internal medicine and is well known for resuscitating dead organs did not believe in the Bible at all. One day, he saw something in his clinic that changed his mind. He had a patient who had a heart problem. Anytime the patient regained his heart beat, he would scream, “I am in hell. Doctor, please help me to get out.” He was always terrified anytime the patient started to scream because when he looked at the patient, he found genuine fear on his face as he begged him for help. So for the first time the doctor started reading his Bible and believed that indeed there is a place called hell.

Korah, Dathan and Abiram entered into hell fire live. The earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up. So, inside the earth, where the Bible says that hell fire is, there are millions of lost souls under torment, burning, weeping and wailing without any hope whatsoever. Jesus said in Mark 9:46, “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Recently, some scientists discovered that at the bottom of the ocean, there was fire leaking out. And when they got to the area where the fire was leaking out, they found some long fire worms. The Bible talks about these worms which would be going in and out of the nose, mouth, and ears of people in hell fire. God has not left us without a witness. Recently also, there was an article in a newspaper abroad entitled, “They dig into hell.” Some scientists who did not believe in heaven and in hell were drilling a hole into the ground and when their instrument got to a particular length, they noticed that the temperature went up. They found that the instrument was moving up and down, and they were hearing noises. They thought the instruments were bad and adjusted them. After the adjustment, the screaming continued. And according to them, it was not a sound from a single human being but screams of millions of people. In fact, they recorded the noise. Screams of millions of human beings wasting away in hell fire.

Would you be a trophy in hell fire or would you be a trophy of the Almighty God? Hell is a place of unquenchable fire, a place of memory, a place of regret, a place of separation, a place of undiluted divine anger, and a place that was originally prepared for satan and his own hosts. You have no business going there and really you should not plan to go there. But all sinners without exception are planning to go there. As far as Bible is concerned, every sinner will end up in hell fire. It would be a very sad testimony if a Christian lands in hell fire with the witches he was binding and casting out. It is terrible because every single moment throughout eternity, every inch of the person’s body will be in pain. It would be like pouring boiling oil on the skin of somebody continuously. The person will not be able to bear the pain. His throat will become dry with screaming and as he opens his mouth, worms of fire would be going in and out. He would be crying for water, but there would be none, and without any warning, the person would see that he keeps dropping, coughing, and gasping and the tongue would become like red hot iron and the roof of the mouth will be patched with heat. It is then that everything the person heard in church will torment him the more.

Beloved, examine your life. If there is any sin there, no matter how little, it will take you the place of torment. You must not go there. You are not supposed to be there.

HOW DO WE PREVENT OURSELVES FROM GOING TO HELL FIRE?

1. Romans 12.1:“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Your first medicine against hell fire is to become a living sacrifice. Although you are alive, you are dead in Jesus. You die daily like Paul. Once you are dead to the flesh, you don’t know whether people are gossiping about you. You cannot be bothered whether you are being insulted or not.

2. Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” The second medicine is: Do not like the world and its evil system. James 4:4 also says, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” Friendship with the world, the Bible says, is enmity with God. If any man loves the world, he has only one sickness, the love of the Father is not in him. If you love the world, when the world perishes, you will go with it.

3. The third medicine is humility. Be humble. Romans 12:3 says, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

4. Romans 12:4-8: “For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office. So, we, being many, are one body in Christ and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith. Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering; or he that teacheth, on teaching; or he that exhorteth, on exhortation; he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence, he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.” Medicine number four is play your part in the house of God. Don’t be a bench warmer in the church. Make sure there is something you are doing for God.

5. Romans 12:9 says, “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.” Medicine number five is love people without hypocrisy.

6. Medicine number six can also be found in verse 9 which says, “Abhor that which is evil.” Hate whatever is evil with perfect hatred.

7. Romans 12:11 says, “Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” Be fervent in the spirit.

8. Be broken. Every area of unbrokenness in your life will only give the enemies space to work.

If a person is a candidate for hell, useless and vain things will take his time. So the item that takes most of your time indicates where your heart is and shows where you are going. The candidates for hell waste most of their time.

The ultimate desire of the devil is to display Christians as trophies. If you are reading this message and you are not yet born again, it means that you have not started at all. If you don’t want to go to hell fire, you must become born again. If you have decided to give your life to Christ, make the following confession: “Lord Jesus, I come before you and I confess that I am a sinner. I repent of all my sins and ask that you forgive me. Cleanse me O Lord with your blood. I surrender my life unto you. Take absolute control of my life. Thank you Lord, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
