WARNING WARNING WARNING

WARNING WARNING WARNING

A GIGANTIC METEOR IS HEADED TOWARDS EARTH AND IN ONE WEEK, IT WILL SMASH INTO THE EARTH.
THERE IS NO WAY TO PREPARE FOR IT.
THERE IS NO PLACE TO HIDE

YOU ARE ABOUT TO DIE

PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD

 

The only thing true in the above news warning is

THERE IS NO PLACE TO HIDE
YOU ARE GOING TO DIE
PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD

If the warning were true
Churches would fill up.

“Want to be atheists” would quickly find religion.

As the saying goes,
“It would be a game changer.”

STOP AND CONSIDER if it were true.
YAA, WELL, IT AINT TRUE
Humor me, because the end of days may very well be soon!

How would it impact you?

How would it affect your family and loved ones?

Would your hatred or anger at that person who did you wrong still be foremost on your mind?
Probably not.

Would all those things you have been craving, have been working for, your bank account, home, car, back pocket money.  Would you still crave your addiction?
Probably not.

Would the temporary delights of this world still be of interest?  Probably not.

Would Sunday football still be a high priority?  Probably not.

Would you remember that Jesus said
Luke 12:15  And he said unto them, Take heed, and BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Luk 12:16  And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
Luk 12:17  And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
Luk 12:18  And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
Luk 12:19  And I WILL SAY TO MY SOUL, SOUL, THOU HAST MUCH GOODS LAID UP FOR MANY YEARS; TAKE THINE EASE, EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY.
Luk 12:20  But God said unto him, THOU FOOL, THIS NIGHT THY SOUL SHALL BE REQUIRED OF THEE: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

Are you even familiar with that passage of Scripture?

James wrote:

James 4:14  Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

Do you even know who James is?

John wrote the following.  This is the same John that wrote Revelation.
1st John 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. IF ANY MAN LOVE THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM.
1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world, the LUST of the flesh, and the LUST of the eyes, and the PRIDE of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1Jn 2:17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
1Jn 2:18  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

soon very soon YOU WILL DIE.  Even if it is 50 or 175 years from now – trust me when your life is about to end and you look back on it you will know that your life was just as James described it – “a vapor that appeared for a little time

 

Okay this is where I’m going with this

There may never be a gigantic meteor hitting the earth

but, what God has said He will do.  And

YOU WILL STILL DIE

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Tell me, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES A FEW YEARS MAKE?

What difference does a sudden warning of mass destruction make?

None

EXCEPT IN YOUR MIND.

I will tell you this, Jesus said he was returning to earth, and Jesus says what He means and means what He says (John 14:3).  The LORD Jehovah doesn’t lie, bluff, nor does He use scare tactics, (Revelation 19 and 20).  The LORD Jehovah always tells the truth.  And one reason for Jesus warning us about Hell and future destruction is that He cares about you, He cares about us, and Jesus proved His love FOR YOU by dying on the cross of Calvary.

 

That is one reason God had the apostle John write revelation.

Even those who are religious skeptics and atheists have heard about the book of Revelation that it tells of a time THE WORSE TIME EVER in the history of the earth is coming.

 

Oh yaa, right, and the jolly green giant is also about to pop up along with Mr. Clean and the Easter bunny.

 

People have been preaching repent the end of the world is coming for well over a hundred years.  Well it hasn’t happened and it has become trite, old, stale as a week old egg salad sandwich.

That’s for sure.  If the great and dreadful tribulation wasn’t mocked along with the second coming of the LORD Jesus, then I’d have to question what Peter really meant when he wrote

2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that THERE SHALL COME IN THE LAST DAYS SCOFFERS, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

…. then in 2nd Peter 3:9

2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.

Jesus said there is coming a time that will be the worse ever for earth, it is the time of GOD’S WRATH

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Mat 24:22  And EXCEPT THOSE DAYS SHOULD BE SHORTENED, THERE SHOULD NO FLESH BE SAVED: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

 

But hay, you may die before it ever happens so do not concern yourself with it.

Just keep living the good life.

Laugh, Joke, Take a little dope.  Enjoy yourself.

Are you thinking that’s not me
I try to live a decent life
I’m not laughing, joking and taking dope.  Instead, I am an upright person I am a “go to Church every Sunday” type of person.

Well so was the man that Jesus preached about in His sermon on the mount.  That sermon didn’t end with what we call the beatutudes.

Mat 5:3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 5:4  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Mat 5:5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Mat 5:6  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Mat 5:7  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Mat 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Mat 5:9  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Mat 5:10  BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS’ SAKE: FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
MAT 5:11  BLESSED ARE YE, WHEN MEN SHALL REVILE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU, AND SHALL SAY ALL MANNER OF EVIL AGAINST YOU FALSELY, FOR MY SAKE.

Jesus went on to preach for another two chapters, that’s three chapters in all, have you bothered to read them? His sermon didn’t end until chapter seven verse 27

Here is Matthew 7:13-23

Mat 7:13  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 thereat:
Mat 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Mat 7:15  BEWARE of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 

THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT I WANT YOU GOODY TWO SHOES TO THINK ABOUT

Mat 7:21  NOT EVERY ONE THAT SAITH UNTO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.
Mat 7:22  MANY WILL SAY TO ME IN THAT DAY, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Jesus said he never knew those goody two shoes even when they were faithful to Church and good works.

why so?

Because they were never born again.  Jesus says we
MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

You say, “I don’t understand it, and I do not believe it”  Fine but

WARNING WARNING WARNING

If you are not born again before you die then Jesus will say to you on your judgment day, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. And your departure will be into the lake of fire where you will spend eternity – YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

GO AHEAD AND PROVE ME WRONG
GO AHEAD AND PROVE GOD WRONG

We are about done, but before we part company

I just want to bring your attention to the above verse where Jesus say’s in Matthew 7:21

NOT EVERY ONE THAT SAITH UNTO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.

Okay if you need to ” DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.” in order to get into heaven then it would behoove you to find out what the will of the Father is.  Then if you obey it you are in, if you do not obey it then you burn and burn and burn for ever and ever.  Simple.

God said in Matthew 17:5
While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; HEAR YE HIM.

God tells us, hear my Son.  God loves His Son and if you are a friend of His then you are a friend of God.
If you are in the LORD Jesus Christ then you are a friend of God.

Earlier Jesus said to some very religious Jews who were criticizing Him for associating with some ungodly people,
Matthew 9:12  But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
Mat 9:13  But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but SINNERS TO REPENTANCE.

And in John 3 Jesus said

Joh 3:1  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
Joh 3:2  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Joh 3:3
  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

have you been born again?  Jesus said you will not even see heaven unless you are born again.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

This is why you need to be born again;  You can not understand spiritual teaching until you are.  So you need to understand how to be born again before you can truly understand the Bible.  You can get some head knowledge but to understand it you need to be born again.

1Co 2:14  But THE NATURAL MAN receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

YOU need to be born again because you HAVE A DEAD SPIRIT.

Ephesians 2:1  And you hath he quickened [made alive], who WERE DEAD IN TRESPASSES AND SINS;

Eph 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: [THE DEVIL, SATAN, THE SERPENT]|
Eph 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were BY NATURE THE CHILDREN OF WRATH, even as others.
Eph 2:4  BUT GOD, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

HOW CAN A PERSON BE DEAD AND YET BE ALIVE and FULLY FUNCTIONING?

MANS SPIRIT IS DEAD

THAT PART OF MAN THAT COMMUNICATES WITH GOD

Dead doesn’t mean ceasing to be.  Dead means separated.  Sin YOUR SINS have separated you from God.  Your sins have made you a rebel and an enemy of God, and yet, WONDERS OF WONDERS, GOD STILL LOVES YOU!

Man’s spirit is dead and until your spirit is made alive you are the enemy of God.  No buts about it!

MAN IS A Tripartite.  He consists of three parts:
body, soul, spirit.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your WHOLE SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

YOU NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN
THAT IS YOU NEED TO BE MADE WHOLE,
and that will happen when you believe that it was you that nailed Jesus to the cross.  That Jesus died – paid the price – for your sins.
