In the past, my brothers and sisters, we have watched the world move and shake like no other time in history. We have witnessed severe changes in the weather and yet...few are paying any attention! We have been talking about the godless world and those that prefer to accommodate themselves to living in it.
We read in the Bible in Daniel 1 and 2, Thessalonians, Ezekiel, and finally in Revelation that these changes were coming. We know the Word of God is somewhere older than 3000 years and still, in today’s world it speaks to you and me. The question is…“Why are so few paying any attention to it?”
If you walk the streets of this country and ask anyone willing to answer this same question, they will continue to give the same answers. “Well...I am so busy these days with...” Or it may be, “I don’t think the Bible is relevant nowadays.” Or it could also be “I have so much on my plate at the moment...!”
The answers never change because the “thinking” never changes! If you ask yourself why that is you will find that they simply will not devote any time to reading the Bible! They are too busy with other things that they think are so much more important than noticing that the clock is ticking down to midnight!
Oh...we can delve into all the hype about the “end” of the Mayan Calendar but there is no time to delve into the fact that the Rapture and the Tribulation are just around the corner! We can spend endless numbers of hours in front of the television and yet never once think to pick-up the Bible and spend a single hour with the Lord. We can spend forty to sixty dollars at the theaters and watch global disaster movies and never once notice, we are about to see the world come to an end, right before our eyes! Take the time to read the chapters in the Bible I stated earlier and see for yourself!
Never once do any of the 1%’ers take the time to understand why we get 70-80 years to live when they know THAT is not enough time to truly experience REAL wealth! Everyone is more concerned about their money or the lack there of and how they can accumulate more, than the certain value of salvation through Jesus Christ. Since so many are not willing to read the Bible, they will never notice that it says we should concern ourselves with storing up “treasures in heaven”...NOT here! Therefore, they will never know what “true” wealth heaven holds for all those that come to the cross of Jesus Christ, because they will never see heaven!”
Let me ask you a question here, “WHY would you want to forsake the eternity of heaven, for only 70-80 years here?” Do you not understand there is an unknowing amount of time to be had in eternal life? And you want to give it all up for paper and coin here on earth for such a short period of time?? Eternity has NO TIME. TIME does NOT exist in eternity. It is without end!! Once again, why would you choose the time here on earth in exchange of living for eternity in heaven? And to think they say that...You and I...Are the “weirdo’s” for standing up for Jesus Christ, heaven and eternal life! It’s the other way around, right?
Do you need to put it in words that will be easier for you to understand? Okay, then I will! YOU are an idiot if YOU will not see that salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary is the only thing that can save YOU from eternal destruction! The Bible is filled with the Words from God’s mouth to YOUR ears! God created everything in this universe. YOU did not therefore things will always go according to the perfect will of God! Now there is one question left to ask, “Do YOU want to live for 70-80 years, or would YOU rather live for all of eternity? That is the ultimate question. Birth and death are a given.
John 14.6: “I am the way the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father except by me!”
That, my friends is Jesus Christ...talking to YOU! I already know this principle for myself and I follow Jesus Christ in all I do and that is why I am asking that question of YOU! I already know I am going to live with my Lord and Savior in heaven for all of eternity, but I must ask you this question. I am responsible to the Lord God Almighty to do so! Besides that, it won’t cost you a single thing to accept this precious gift from the Lord, how much easier do you want it to be?
Matthew 6.27-33, emphasis added:
“Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Following Jesus Christ means that all the things you and your family need to live will be provided for you. That begs the question, “Why do you go hungry or live without a home and good food?” The answer just like everything else in the Bible is simple: You do NOT follow Jesus Christ! You’re too busy with everything else relying on your own virtues when you never realize...YOU don’t have any virtues! The Bible says there is NONE GOOD, only God!
So...go ahead and follow all those new trends in whatever─be just like all those other folks too busy to look to Jesus Christ and find out exactly where you end up! One thing: It’s all YOUR fault YOU end up in hell. YOU chose that as your final destination, because YOU wouldn’t make Jesus Christ YOUR God! I hope and pray that all that wealth does everything for you that you want it to because in the end, that’s the best YOU’RE going to get!
What do YOU think WE are here on this earth for? Don't know? Then YOU better pull that Bible out and begin reading everything you can. It has all the answers you need to know! Then drop to your knees and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your SIN and cover you in HIS blood from the cross! You always want to be on the best team, the winning team, the team that has it all, the team that’s going places...Do you really want the short term...or would you rather have the whole enchalada?!
Jesus Christ is all things...everywhere!!!
