This is an unusual post for me.
It is not directed at my brothers and sisters; it is offered to those who have made that common accusation, that GOD sends people to hell.
David penned in Psalm 51
7 (5) True, I was born guilty,
was a sinner from the moment my mother conceived me. source
David is acknowledging here what is the truth.
We are born sinners.
What does that mean exactly?
That we each and every one of us are sinners — there is NONE righteous, no not one. (Romans 3:10)
It means we, each of us, are born on the road to hell.
Moreover, through the course of our lives, GOD intervenes, He puts up roadblocks, He brings people into our lives with the Good News of the Gospel that JESUS is alive to save us and desires to save us; He arranges for us to hear songs, sermons, see Scripture Passages – all these things come into our lives. And we even have creation itself to witness to us that we have a Creator. Creation invites us to look and see GOD.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, source
The Execution Stake
An Empty Tomb!
And people ignore them, go around them, jump over them, and one day they die.
They die on that road to hell. It is their destination; it is the road they refused all their life to get off of.
The Road that JESUS came and met them on and they said, “no, thank You.”
At our deaths, GOD has no choice; His holiness, His love, His mercy, His Justice MUST honor our decisions.
Hell is the place HE tried to keep you out of BUT you refused.
Hell was not made for YOU but it will open for you if you insist. (See Matthew 25:41)
It’s as simple as that.
Man has reached phenomenal heights of intellect and technology in the preceding 100 years. I am appreciative. I have happily benefited. But.
I am sick of soul watching the dearth of common sense in our present time.
Droves of people have divorced themselves from logical reasoning.
Today’s planet dwellers are so easily seduced and enslaved by the god of this world. Multitudes of humans no longer reason or think for themselves. Instead, they do as the elite tell them to do – without question.
They are indeed sheep with no Shepherd.
Moreover the many, if we can believe media videos, have given themselves over to an all-out hatred for THE SHEPHERD who loves them. True, not all have voiced this with words but their practiced behaviors have exposed them.
This is today’s humanity.
A few of us ONLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD have escaped. So how and why are we sitting on our blessed assurances and are not spending our waking hours in fervent prayer and speaking the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST to every person we meet who is WILLING to listen?
Our time in human history is so dire. Let us not waste precious time or resources on social media debates with online friends and strangers; rather we must be open to opportunities given to us by HOLY SPIRIT and invest ourselves there for the souls of our precious fellow humans.
Tragically most are not going to repent and be saved but surely there are some out there ready to live free. Aren’t there?
May The LORD connect us.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
12 The hired hand, since he isn’t a shepherd and the sheep aren’t his own, sees the wolf coming, abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf drags them off and scatters them.
13 The hired worker behaves like this because that’s all he is, a hired worker; so it doesn’t matter to him what happens to the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd; I know my own, and my own know me —
15 just as the Father knows me, and I know the Father — and I lay down my life on behalf of the sheep.
16 Also I have other sheep which are not from this pen; I need to bring them, and they will hear my voice; and there will be one flock, one shepherd.
17 “This is why the Father loves me: because I lay down my life — in order to take it up again!
18 No one takes it away from me; on the contrary, I lay it down of my own free will. I have the power to lay it down, and I have the power to take it up again. This is what my Father commanded me to do.” source
A Calling for Prayer,
The Body of Christ needs to pray.
The Warriors are weary.
Because the planet is filled with sickness, disease, death, mean people, evil people, worldly people, lies, corruption, and little to no justice. Sin is everywhere but not pointed out, not confessed, not turned away from, instead it is applauded and hailed as good.
This world is hostile to righteousness. And all those who dare to live godly, this place is nearly uninhabitable.
This is why the People of GOD need to pray because until our Father calls us out of here we must go forth in victory, proclaiming the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST – that He still saves repentant sinners.
By the way, do you know any? Repentant Sinners, I mean?
Calling for prayer,
What was (is) that one thing?
