In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches about the 144,000 who will believe upon Christ and how they are characterized as those who "follow the Lamb." They are pure, they are undefiled, they are Christ-centered, and headed for glory.
Yet there are also those who will not worship the Lamb and they worship the beast. They are idolaters. They will forever be in the lake of fire which is eternal and full of God's wrath, anger, and hatred. It will be a place of torment, fire and brimstone without any rest.
The only hope is the gospel of God's grace: fear God, give Him glory and worship Him! Be saved from God's wrath by faith alone in Christ!

The purpose for these memorial stones, according to Joshua 4, is so that the parents can instruct their children as to the works and ways of God and call them to fear the Lord and follow Him!
