The book of Revelation is chock-full with revelations from God. This is “prophetic Scripture” foretelling real events that will take place at the end of time as we know it. Specific, cataclysmic, real future events are prophetically given to us. Let’s look into this passage of Revelation 20 and see what’s coming around the corner.
It’s rather easy to see “if we love Jesus less”. Have you looked into your soul lately? Salvation in Christ involves truly following Christ. To cherish platitudes, to parrot doctrines, to relish Christian fellowship, to love the feelings of worship and prayers to God, to serve Him – even to be nice… is not what God requires for salvation.
The following scenario is only broadway theater. But the story is true for some tonight. You die tonite, at one minute to midnite. And… you’ve said no to Jesus.
John (3:18-21) discusses the topic of being God damned: Being freed or not being freed – from God’s condemnation. Do you know you are free? Or are you still God damned?
We are natural born sinners on a road away from God. You can stay on it, and end up far, far away. But God wants all to be saved. John 3:16.
Do you know God will hold you accountable for how you live your life. What you do with Jesus affects you for all eternity. Turn to Jesus.
Down through the ages God has clearly shown to us: what we humans do – can offend Him greatly. These (following examples) are real life historical events for us to learn from. The Bible clearly states that these following dramatic events were actions by God – because of His great displeasure.
Examining the theology of the entire Bible reveals that there are at least six different types of wrath – from God.
What is the difference – “denying Christ” versus “being faithless”?
We all have a sin problem. Some have dealt with it with God. Others have dealt with it by their own thinking and rationalizations. What have you done with your sin problem?
There are only two types of humans on earth. You really really want to be the type who sincerely and truthfully accepts Christ, the one who endures all the way.
Jesus warned us not to be dishonest with Him. You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. You must be genuinely born again.
PIC: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950. Life is full of choices. You know? (Sometimes you don’t have a choice – like this only road over the Andes: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950.) We want the best choice – every time, right? We make a choice, choosing one over another – in order to have the […]
Contemplate arriving in sin – before Almighty, Holy, God.
I for one do not want to arrive in God’s Courts with filthy rags on, stinking of sin – before the God of the Universe. How ’bout you? Do you wear filthy robes – or have you been beautified with rich robes of forgiveness? God is able to take away all your past sinfulness — and place you in good standing with Him. No matter how grave your sin, no matter how long you sinned, no matter. No problem. He is able.
Oh how marvelous – His grace towards us, sinners all. When it comes to repentance for salvation – Jesus is all inclusive. He will accept any truly repentant sinner of any vile stripe. You name it, He will forgive. But His is a limited grace. Don’t try to squeeze-by in His courts of justice.
Scripture uses farmers terms. It calls true believers “wheat”, and fake believers “tares”. A tare is a plant that grows up with wheat, but is not true wheat.
Tares are like the piglet that suckles with the kitten’s mother cat. The piglet thinks he’s a kitten because he likes the milk. But he’s only a pig, not a cat. The same is true of folk who like the idea of being blessed by Christ, but never yield to Him.
Folks! You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. Faking = Still lost. You can talk like/smell like/pray like/look like/act like/dress like/preach like/give money like/claim church membership like/go to church like… but if your heart is not genuinely His, “with all your heart…”, then you are not saved. You are a God damned “believer”. ‘You must be born again.’
“8 Billion people can’t be wrong!” “On the contrary, billions of people CAN be wrong!” Reminded me of just how many people will be affected when Jesus suddenly surprises them, actually coming back just as He said He would. Are you ready for that day, or will it surprise you all to Hell?
31 It is a fearful and terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God [incurring His judgment and wrath]. – Hebrews 10:31 FOR MORE: Saving Knowledge God takes care of sinners God is available to all Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty Our perfect God and our response to Him God […]
Ever thought about this?…how “for salvation in Christ — hating is life changing”? Part of Jesus’ message says: 1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into Life, because we love the brothers and sisters. He who does not love remains in [spiritual] death. Hate is “eternal-life-changing”. Scary thought. Are you […]
Scenario: God Almighty “interviews” Don Lemon. Scene One: Don Lemon is kneeling before the Judge of All. Here’s the imaginary dialog on That Day of Judgement.
Scary thought: Have you thought of this possibility… that you might be agreeing with the Devil himself? According to the Bible, there are only two major players in the entire universe: God Almighty and Lucifer, God’s mightiest created angel, who wanted to be God, and fell from God’s grace, often called “the Devil”. Are you […]
I think. You think. We all think. But, what does God think? Thinking is necessary. But what if your “think” is not God’s “think”? Then your “think” will end so very badly when you reach That Day of Judgement, quivering before God in the realization that it is His Think that rules the heavens, not yours. Read about God’s “think”. What you think – matters. How you act it out – matters more. It will seal your eternity – with Him, or without Him.
Coming to God on your own terms is like… like careening into court dipsy drunk to fight a DUI offense and thinking the judge will forgive you. The reality of God’s universe is — it’s not your universe. It behooves us to seek after God and get His word on things. Our thoughts are not His thoughts. My thoughts will not be consulted by God on That Day.
Are you ready to lose your soul today – forever? Or are you ready to meet your Maker? Is your account with Him balanced? Hebrews 9:27 …it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment We all have “an account” with God. And it starts out in […]
Quotes about mere puny mud-men and women of clay – us.
I have really tried to, but can’t seem to find in the Bible any reference to “Hell Fire Insurance”. Have you? That’s what some call it: where you can somehow “accept Jesus”, but then, well, all kinds of pressures push you away and back into sin… and you just continue there, blustering defiantly, defensively, when […]
The true believer is in Christ, “reborn from above” – never to be “unborn” again. The true believer will never again be under the condemnation of God. Ever. “That act of becoming born again — is an act of God upon our life. We don’t do it — He does it! And that is why it will never be undone.”
There are many ways to live your life, many religions and philosophies of man, many faiths to follow. Whatever you call yours, we all become engrossed by it during our stay upon this globe. All these “ways” have their gatekeepers who welcome or guard the entrance into their paradise. But Jesus is the one and only gatekeeper of Heaven’s Gate. He is The One who grants entrance into the awesome Kingdom of Creator God.
