You’ve Got Questions, the Bible Has the Answers!!
By Don twobears
What do you think would happen if the people of this country spent as much money and time researching the Word of God as they do science, or anything else for that matter? Can you imagine the state of being for all concerned? Can you imagine what the government would be like today?
And for that matter how about the entire population? Would researching the Word of God be a greater influence on the rest of the world? How about the job situation, would it be a non-issue? How about the homeless and the poor or how about all the people that go without good food or drinking water, right here in the USA? What would the impact be on crime of any sort? Most of all, ask yourself how would this impact the Rapture or the Tribulation that we already KNOW is coming and coming very, very, soon.
Here’s the answer: If it is anything short of what is already stated above, it is our own fault!! We have chosen for things to be the way they are, we have chosen to have a country as it is today! Almost all of us are going to sit back and say something to the extent of, “Hey, I didn’t do all of this, you can’t blame me!”
Well, actually, yes they can! Each of us had our hand in the way everything is today! We chose to commit SIN! We chose to turn our back on God! We have each chosen, at one point in time, to turn our back on the cross of Jesus Christ and the Blood HE spilt for us! Somehow we chose to, “Do our own thing.” Don't you remember?
All of us have had to go to the cross of Jesus Christ and either bathe in His saving blood or walk away! That, my friends, is why everything today is the way it is for all of us. Each and every one of us is “fallen” in the eyes of our Lord and Savior until we are redeemed and if it weren’t for the blood of Jesus Christ, each of us would indeed see eternal hell!!
Okay, so we have imagined what things would be like. If we should a, would a, could a, at some point in time, right? But we are not in that situation, we have majorly messed things up for all of us and each and every one of us must accept our individual part in it. Having said that, each of us has blood on our hands!
It matters little who you are, whether you have been out and talking with people, endeavoring to change the status quo or if you have doing nothing at all. Either way, every one is still at fault for doing nothing or failing in the long run.
You see, Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes unto the Father except by me” (John 14:6). That is the exact spot, where we failed! We relied on our own ideas and our own way of doing things and ultimately it has failed. It failed because we did our own thing, not God’s perfect plan for each of us! Can you imagine a world without religious strife?? No Muslims, no Buddhists, no anything else, just Jesus Christ and HIS salvation for us!
All people would be “born-again, Bible believing Christians that follow Jesus Christ...as it was originally meant to be when God created the Heavens and the Earth. Because Satan caused EVE and ADAM to fall from grace, the rest of all humanity has fallen from grace as well. Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, had to go to the cross at Calvary to pay for all SIN and purchase us to life eternal.
It is then sad to say in the least that the majority will walk the broad and wide road that leads to eternal destruction. What is unusual to know, everyone that has ever lived on this planet has or had the opportunity to follow Jesus Christ and thus gain eternal life. As I stated in my last article, the “oxymoron” of this issue is what the Bible states:
Matthew 7.13-14, emphasis added: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Oh!! That it were not so! But we must digress, the majority are headed for eternal destruction in the “lake of fire” which was initially made for Satan and his ilk! It is then, the reason for the Rapture and the Tribulation that must come, with the Rapture being the only way to physically separate the born-again from the eternally lost!” I continually ask people which they would prefer, HEAVEN OR HELL and without hesitation they choose Heaven. I have never met a single person that has overtly chosen Hell!
Yet, how many of these same people are willing to committ their lives to Jesus Christ? That, is of course, a totally different story unto itself. Going with the above verse we can easily understand that the majority of them want heaven, but they are not willing to committ to Jesus Christ in order to get there!!
The next problem is, when you decide to tell them how to get to heaven, it is always the “Oh No...here it comes again!! Keep your religious stuff to yorself!” And so this same attitude by the majority ends with them being in hell rather than heaven!
Have you ever been to other countries in the world? Notice that the majority of them have very religious people, whether it is to the Lord is not the question. In many countries outside of the USA, the government and the religion of the people are almost one and the same.
If you are indeed born-again to Jesus Christ, you would never think to invade any of their religious functions. At the least, they will endeavor to persuade you of the errors of your way! They truly segregate themselves from outsiders with different beliefs, especially any beliefs concerning our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Suffice it say, the majority will have beliefs that “good deeds” will give them access to heaven, when in actuality, their knowledge of Jesus Christ is either non-existent or fabricated, erroneously! It is common across the globe,that the religious beliefs of any individual is according to what the parents believed and thus it continues down the line.
For a moment, let’s look at what happens if you have a line of a hundred people and you whisper something in the ear of the first person and then see what the result is at the end. Little will remain of the initial whisper, such is the problem with the religions of the majority of the world.
Hear’ Say, conjecture, confusion and fear, replace the original beliefs of the ancestors! Having stated that, it is important for us to understand why we must adhere to every word of the Bible─God’s holy Word to you and me! Keeping the Word of God fresh and new to each of us, keeps what we know as truth alive in each of us!
And it is the belief that the Lord saves each of us by grace─HIS love─that continually calls us and holds us. It is the fact that life eternal for us is by following Jesus Christ, by leaving our “old self” nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ at Calvary. And that there is NOTHING we are able to DO, it is simply the love of our God, Jesus Christ, that saves us!
Back to the purpose of this article, it is evident to every person that has ever lived on earth that we are being driven to experience the Rapture and the Tribulation in one manner or the other. For those saved by grace of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will be taken to heaven in the Rapture!
The rest who are left here after the Rapture, they will have to endure the Tribulation and those that come to Jesus Christ at that time, will indeed face death. The rest of humanity will simply die! For those we call the “rest of humanity, this verse was stated in the Bible:
Hebrews 9.27: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment!” Where do you stand with Jesus Christ? Will you be saved by grace?? Or will you simply DIE?
What is the worth of your life, is it to show the love of God by living a Christ-like life? Or are you still struggling with everything else in life, not caring to give the Lord a single thought? Are you still one of the people that wants to go to heaven when you die as a human, but you’re not willing to crack a Bible to find out how to make that happen?
Doyou wonder why life is so horrible, when it doesn't have to be that way? Have you ever wondered why it is so easy to scoff and blaspheme the Lord and HIS people? Have you ever wondered, Whom is in charge of your life, is it truly YOU or could it be someone else is putting thoughts in your head? Do you really want a peaceful life, with harmony and love or do prefer the anxiety of hatred and violence? How badly do you want to go to heaven? With your beliefs, are you sure that heaven is where you are headed? How will you ever know for sure??
Jesus Christ IS Lord of lords and King of kings!!!
