Palatable

At times I tire of bringing strong, firm, and hard-to-publish posts here to this screen. Often I want to write something happy, funny, light, pleasant – you know easy to read things.
This one is not.
So we might as well get started.

We hear Sermons and watch “Biblical” movies (like tonight) and then sit for the wrap-up, numerating the stresses and woes of living here. Things like a financial loss.
Governmental interference and overreach.
Sickness.
Disease.
Death of those we love.
Breaches of relationships, family.
Injustices.
Bad hair days. 
The list of things that bring us stress, pain, worry, wondering what shall we do, how shall this end?

And this is supposed to get people to sign up for salvation?
The message of these sermons and “Biblical” movies are so palatable to the average Joe and Sally: we have hurts and JESUS wants to make us all better.
We just need to believe, say a little prayer, and voi·​là we are saved.

Saved from what I am left asking?
The stresses and hurts of this world?

Is that what the Sinless Perfect Holy Holy Holy GOD of Creation came to earth incarnate to do?
Make our lives here comfortable?
Make us feel good about ourselves?

Please tell me where that is recorded in HOLY WRIT.

When are we going to preach and testify that JESUS came to save SINNERS, not just unhappy, troubled people?

When are we going, to tell the truth, that JESUS saves people who are broken, devastated over the revelation knowledge that has come to them that they are sinners, sinners who have SINNED against The Holy, Holy, Holy GOD of Eternity, and because of this are headed straight for hell?
When are we going to preach and testify that conversion, the re-birth, happens when an undone sinner is not worried about the job they lost or the trip they didn’t get to take, they are terrified of the hell their sin is sending them to?
And THEN they hear the glorious best news they have ever heard or ever shall hear: JESUS The CHRIST by HOLY SPIRIT reveals to them I, JESUS, YESHUA HAMASHIACH, I have taken your place!
You do not have to go to hell. Believest Thou This?

And by that time the repentant sinner is saying Yes. Yes. Yes.
Thank You. Thank You. I accept Your offer of forgiveness and redemption.
I accept Your Sacrificial death for me. Thank You. Thank You, LORD JESUS.

That my Friends is repentance and conversion.
That my Friends gets a person off the broad road to hell onto the narrow road headed for Heaven.

So it’s not light, it’s not funny, but it is the BEST NEWS A GUILTY SINNER has ever heard!
I should know — it’s the message I heard on November 18, 1975!
And I’ve never been the same!

I shall not leave you without Scripture.
Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Revelation 20:13-15

  1. Oh my dear sister friend! Thank you for this message. NEVER waver in your leadings to bring the truth instead of some watered down warm and fuzzy message. This is so needed and I pray that it will be used by God to bring people to true salvation.
    There is a real hell and whether we want to believe it or not does not change the fact that it exists and that every second we live someone is leaving this earth and going there. Not because God sends them there, but because they reject Him and refuse to repent.
    I recommend reading “23 Minutes in Hell” by Bill Weiss. Everyone should read this every year to keep the fact that people are perishing all around us every day and they need to be warned.
    Oh my sister! Post this message every day! Shout it from the housetops, highways and byways! NEVER STOP! We need to rescue the perishing with the truth of Gods message. Thank you for your faithfulness!! I so love you for it.
