As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:40-42
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For the earth which drinkethin the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. Hebrews 6:1-8
"But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned."
Concerning the plight of those who have seen fellow believers turn away.
The common element amongst those who wait the full measure of overcoming victory is the fact that there are many which seem to turn away over the years. Many friends or family or people you know by acquaintance turn away from those who hold fast to the all consuming power of the cross. Each son that I know has lost the fellowship of another believer. Others would leave, sometimes with no explanation at all, other times over doctrinal disputes or over the fact that a true Overcomer will never "tickle" the ears of another who is seeking after the fullness of the Lord. Many who seek after the fullness of the Lord heap to themselves all the elements of doctrine and works by which they can find out the measure of Christ that fits what they believe is truth. Instead, they are fed strong delusion by God and they believe a lie. This is God's doing.
The turning away of the believers unto other elements has also now come to fulfillment. This is not to say that the sword of the Lord does not yet divide Overcomer from Overcomer, some have had fellowships where communion between brethren was stopped and a parting of ways took place, this does not mean that everyone who has left is not still in the overcoming walk. But it does mean that the full measure of such division has taken place now and the Lord has set each one in order before Him.
Those who bear false doctrine, false discourse in God's word, who hold fast to bearing the truth in unrighteousness, that is in a belief system that fits a doctrinal or denominational mold, these are akin to those that bear thorns and briers. In other words, the Lord has "bundled up", into groups, into order all those things that cause offence, those things that are thorny, the things that bear briers, He has bundled them all together FOR THE BURNING. For the time has come now upon which the unquenchable fire of the Lord is to be unleashed upon the earth and these bundles, along with the ungodly, will burn. Nothing that is holding fast to impure doctrine can abide the fire that is now ignited in the earth.
When a person turned away from you in the past, remember, it was not always because they were bad or were not Overcomers taking a different path or walk, but for the most part, those who turned away are the very ones bundled together for the burning. The time of the Lord's judgments in the earth has come. I say this in prophecy, you will now begin to see these holy fires of God break forth over the surface of the earth.
