The Things That Happen In the Past Will Haunt Everyone In The Future
Look Up, for Your Redemption Draweth Nigh.
The Lord is on his way back and it could be today, next week, next month, or next year. I don’t know when his return will be, God only knows the exact day. But in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8, we are seeing his return is imminent and is coming very soon! Because, Luke 21:28 – But when these things begin to happen, look up, and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.
Take heed to the warning from God’s Word. When you are in a church that never speaks of the Lord’s return, you aren’t going to the place the Lord wants you too. When you are in a church that never preaches about what you should do to prepare your heart for the day of judgment, you aren’t going to the place the Lord wants you too. Or, when you are in a church that tells you everything is going to be like peaches and cream, you aren’t going to the place the Lord wants you too. You should seriously ask the Lord, through prayer & by reading his Word, to lead you by the Holy Ghost to another church that preaches the Word of God and not just man. Because the Lord is on his way back to rescue the people who have taken heed to the Word of God.
Do You Want to Be Found as a Good & Faithful Servant? I Do!
Proverbs 25:13 – God has told me to do certain things. I should speak to everyone that will read, listen, or that goes to a church that I can speak in and, I will say that you should check your salvation out, 2 Corinthians 13:5. Because there are a lot of so-called believers that have no oil in their lamps, Matthew 25:1-13. If you or anyone you know does not hold to the seriousness of the salvation of the Only Begotten Son of God. Then I, reading the Bible, say that you need to check your own salvation out.
Because I Will Say it is Like in the Days of Noah
Genesis 6:11 – The earth was filled with violent people that were fixed on the wrong things constantly. The mind of even one of them, even people who were believers in the Lord, was corrupt. I don’t want to think that all I say is, God is on his way back. But if you pull your head out of the sand and grasp the stories from the news that are pertinent to the scripture. And you make it a point to read the Bible as much as you can, God will show you some amazing things and they are coming to pass! Because in, Luke 17:26 – As it was in the days of Noah, people are just about the same way. I fear that the scoffers are coming out of the woodworks in America’s churches that were once God-fearing church’s but, are they aren’t now.
I live in America but, I realize that my home is in Heaven. The reason that I know that without a shadow of a doubt, now more than ever, is the Word of God. With all of the attacks of Satan now, just read some of the stories from reputable news sources on my Facebook page, Things a Handicapped Man Ponders. By looking at some of those articles you will start wondering why the Lord hasn’t come back for his church yet but… “God who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)”, continue reading Ephesians 2:4-10.
Are You Doing The Things that Christ Has Told You To Do?
Matthew 24:13-19 – For the true believers, God has given us different talents, or certain things that we should do. I think God he let me get in a marriage with a very talented wife because God really knew that I needed someone who could love me for me. I think God for letting my wife’s talents shine. I thank the Lord that he has let me find the talents that I may preach the Gospel, sing the Gospel, and do all of the other things that I do. I want to be in Heaven without regret.
The Great White Throne Judgment is coming. If you want to do something for yourself, I guess that is fine but, we all need to do something for Jesus Christ. We need to keep doing the things that we are called to do by God, for God. Because you have been bought for a price. 1 Corinthians 6:20, And the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ are worth far more than doing things for yourself.
Matthew 24:20-23 – I don’t want to be found as an unprofitable servant of Jesus Christ. That is why I will get the Gospel out to whosoever, around the world. I am not doing this for the money that I get different people. No, I am doing this for God who gave me the degree in Interactive Graphics. I finally know why I have that degree now. God will work everything out for his children and that is everything. You may wonder why you have studied and sought out things in the past. In time, the Holy Ghost will remind you years later that you can do things with what you know. You will find that you will do not the worldly things with what you know but spiritual things for God.
Matthew 24:24-30 – I was looking at the something that is in the Word of God just a few chapters back in the same book. Matthew 7:22-23, another hard saying in the Bible but it is the truth. You can believe in your mind that you’re saved. You can even have people tell you that you’re saved because they remember the day that you were saved. But, you are not saved if you haven’t given your life to the Father and, live a crucified life through Jesus Christ. I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 6:19, you are not your own anymore once you are saved. You have been bought with the precious Blood of Christ. Therefore glorify God in your body and spirit which are now God’s. Because the Bible is true and I don’t want any unprofitable servant to be cast into outer darkness, or Hell when Christ comes again for his bride.
I said all of that to say this, don’t let the things you have done haunt you in the future. Accept Christ now in your heart.
So, what must you do to receive Christ as your Saviour?
- First, you must admit that you are a sinner and need to be saved.
- Second, you must repent and be willing to turn from your sin.
- Third, you must believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross.
- Fourth, you must receive through prayer, Jesus Christ into your heart and life.
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”, Revelation 3:20.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”, Romans 10:9.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”, Romans 10:13.
If God is knocking on the door of your heart, then answer the door and let Him come in. You can receive Christ through prayer. Here is a simple prayer of salvation.
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I need you. I believe that you died on the cross for me. Forgive me of my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life to you. I receive you as my Saviour, come into my life and save me. Thank you for what you did for me. In Jesus name, Amen.”
It is not just reciting a prayer that saves a person but believing in your heart, having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and confessing with your mouth. For by faith (trusting) in Jesus for your salvation.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”, Ephesians 2:8-9.
Now, you need to trust His Word when Jesus said, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture”, John 10:9.
