Your time and my time is winding up. I’m putting me in it, because I’m not exempt. Everyday we get closer to stepping out of life’s backdoor into eternal life. I’ve repeatedly written and said how we live now determines what we will step into. Every person on earth has the opportunity to live eternally with the King, and despite this fact, people still don’t want to give up this world. People are still playing church and playing with Jesus the Son of God and God Himself; as if it is all a big game.
Please don’t let Him catch you unprepared! Look around at everything going on in the world these days. We are living in the last days. I know people think it’s something that has been said for years. I disagree, because back several years ago, I never seen the things I’ve seen happening today. Years ago I couldn’t see the Bible being fulfilled as I see it today.
Many who claim to be God’s children are still living in their “have it my way world.” I expect it from nonbelievers, but those who are claiming to be Saints shouldn’t have this type of damning mentality. It’s all fun until the ticket has been punched and eyes have closed for the final time. It is then over! The sad part is no one knows when it will be, yet people continue to gamble with their lives. This is no game, it is for real!
There is nothing the world can give a man other than what man deems as important(wealth, glitz, glamour, fame, fortune, etc). First of all it’s always bought with a price. None of what the world has to offer you can take with you when you die. The price for Salvation is completely free. The part people don’t seem to comprehend is although it’s free, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a price for how you live. There is a standard as to how we should live and it involves living according to God’s Word.
People are always complaining about nothing being free. Yet, Salvation is free, but many choose to not accept it. All we have to do is accept Jesus as our Savior (Romans 10:9). Being saved is the first step on this journey. After becoming Saved a person can’t live any kind of way and think because they are saved they will go to Heaven. No! It doesn’t work like that! The Bible is our Guide as to how we should live. We can’t be “lukewarm” we have to be either hot or cold. We can’t be both! This means you must either live for Him or you’re living against Him. You can’t be half way in it, you can’t be in it when you feel like it. You must be all the way in it at all times!
A person’s works, going to church, tithing, duties in church, etc none of it will get a person into Heaven. We must be saved, born again (a new creature putting off the old ways), and we must live a Holy life! It is up to each and everyone of us what we choose. Calling yourself a Saint doesn’t make you one! Going to church doesn’t make you a Saint. You must be saved, born again, and living Holy according to God’s Word.
Many says it’s difficult, but as I’ve said many times before; it’s no harder than a person makes it. It’s just as easy to do right as it is to do wrong. People do wrong with no thought, but you must be very conscious and in the moment when you’re a true Saint, so that you continue to do right. You must keep Jesus on your mind and His Words in your heart and on your mind. His Word convicts a true Saint. Being a new creature makes you self aware and it keeps you from wanting to do anything against God.
I’m a witness if you’re truly God’s child then you’re truly a “new creature” and the last thing you want to do is something displeasing in the sight of God. Doing wrong isn’t debatable or an option. As a child of God your mind and heart is on Jesus and your heart convicts you of any wrong. As a child of God you know how to resist the devil in whatever forms he presents himself. The heart and soul of a true Saint is always focused on doing right, even when the devil try to throw stuff at you.
Many need to get it together. The time is right now! Too much is going on in this world and trust me; man’s agenda is NOT God’s agenda. Man is trying to do all sorts of evil things, but those very people will someday answer to the Father for all they’ve done and trying to do. “Every knee shall someday bow and every tongue shall confess, He is Lord! People must do it now while He’s listening because later when He has turned a death ear, it will be too late
