“Anathema Maranatha”.

Key Verse

“If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.” 1 Corinthians 16:22

Text — 1 Corinthians 16:19-24


Anathema is a Greek word meaning “accursed” or someone who dislikes or is against the truth, while Maranatha means “Come Lord Jesus”. Therefore, the meaning of Anathema Maranatha in our key verse reveals that anyone who loves not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him/her be accursed when Christ returns.

Paul the Apostle was telling the Corinthian believers that there will be a curse on the last day for anyone who dislikes the truth or is disobedient to Christ and the word of God. No boy or girl should be cursed by God because of disobedience. If you continue in disobedience and rebellion and refuse to heed the warning of God coming every day through your pastors, parents, teachers, and the Holy Spirit, the judgment of God will come upon you.

Do not wait for the judgment of God before you repent because the trumpet of God can sound at any time and if you are not prepared, punishment awaits you in hellfire.
Why not repent today so that you will not be among those that will face the judgment of God on the last day?

Lord, I don’t want to be accursed on the last day, I repent and surrender my life to You.
