CHRISTIANITY IS SERIOUS BUSINESS
THE NUMBER ONE QUESTION – THE 64 THOUSAND DOLLAR QUESTION IS
R. U. A CHRISTIAN????
ONLY YOU CAN ANSWER THAT
I hope YOU ARE because if not you will be
“CAST ALIVE INTO A LAKE OF FIRE BURNING WITH BRIMSTONE.”
AND DEATH AND HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH.
AND WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS
CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
CHRISTIANITY IS A HEART THING
RELIGIOUS CHRISTIANITY IS A HEAD THING
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine HEART that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the HEART
man believeth unto righteousness; and
with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
ITS NOT WHAT ANYONE SAYS
ITS WHAT God does in your heart
IT ISN’T THE GIVER OF God’s WORD – that is the soul winner Jesus used the term sower in Matthew chapter 13 – ITS BETWEEN the lost person AND GOD
THAT’S BECAUSE SALVATION IS A HEART THING
GOD LOOKETH UPON THE HEART
GOD opens your heart to the truth
Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
It’s GOD ALONE
WHO MOVES THE HEART
It’s GOD – NOT ANYONE ELSE who CONVICTS US OF
SIN – RIGHTEOUSNESS – AND
JUDGEMENT TO COME
ONLY GOD CAN BRING YOU TO REPENTANCE
WHEN HE DOES YOU BETTER RESPOND
IF YOU SAY YES YES YES INDEED
THANK YOU LORD GOD
I REPENT AND CONFESS JESUS AS MY SAVIOUR – now and forever more
Then you are changed
in a moment – in THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE
Your sins are forgiven
Your dead spirit is made alive
YOU ARE A WINNER
You had a DEAD SPIRIT –
that is your spirit was cut off from GOD
IF you are born again THEN you are a
NEW PERSON A NEW CREATION in Christ
The Holy Spirit now CHANGES your life
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, HE IS a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, ALL THINGS are become new.
HOW HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED ?????
DO YOU now like things you never liked before like
Church and reading your Bible
you now want to be like Jesus your SAVIOUR
Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
It comes natural TO you
YOU may have to work on some rough edges and some have rougher edges then others
But your heart has changed
IF YOU ARE NOT SAVED
MAYBE YOU ARE
LIKE PERSON ROY ORBISON SANG ABOUT back in 1962
THE GREAT PRETENDER
Oh yes I’m the great pretender
Pretending that I’m doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I’m lonely but no one can tell
Oh yes I’m the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I’ve played the game but to my real shame
You’ve left me to grieve all alone
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal
Yes I’m the great pretender
Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I’m not, you see
I’m wearing my heart like a crown
[This is my ending to that last verse]
Pretending that I’M SAVED THAT I’M A CHRISTIAN
BUT I’M NOT
maybe you are just
PUTTING IN TIME UNTILL YOUR TIME IS UP
THEN BYE BYE GUYS AND GIRLS
AND YOU KNOW YOU WILL NEVER GO TO ANOTHER
IF THAT IS YOU THEN YOU ARE STUPID
Because Jesus said
Joh 10:10 … I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
THE TROUBLE IS SOMETIMES WE CAN CONVINCE OURSELVES THAT WE ARE IN THE FAMILY OF God but actually we are in the family of Lucifer
Here is a test – a way to find out if you are truly saved
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU LEAVE HERE?
WHAT DO YOU TALK ABOUT WHEN YOU ARE OUT OF CHURCH, AWAY FROM HOME?
What you say is pretty much what you are
Jer 17:9 – 10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
you don’t answer to me,
YOU ANSWER TO GOD
GRADING ON A CURVE
God doesn’t ever grade on a curve
Let me tell you what grading on a curve is
Sometimes a teacher in high school or college, when they give their first test they use the highest grade for an A. So if the highest score on that test is – let’s say – 50%, Then an A would be given for all that get at least half right on their test.
Now that’s a great deal if your messing around with worldly things, but God doesn’t grade on a curve. With God it’s 100% right or you failed the test.
With God it’s an A+ or F.
YOUR HEART BETTER BE RIGHT WITH GOD!
