In recent posts I've sure put some serious matters before each Christian Believer!! One of the three below should be considered as a quite SERIOUS threat to your eternal security of living with God forever if you should FAIL it!! It's up to you to prayerfully assess where you stand on these important Scriptures!
A. YOU CAN/MUST STOP BEING GOD'S ENEMY. JAMES 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Involves a change of ATTITUDE and almost always a life-style change as well (not all at once!) If you set about changing then you can STOP being His enemy - which I can personally assure you will bring GREAT BLESSINGS TO YOU that as yet you cannot even imagine! (Click HERE to read more.)
B. ONE OF JESUS' FINAL COMMANDS TO US:
MARK 16:15b “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." MATTHEW 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you..."
We are to (a) GO to the whole world, and (b) PREACH the GOSPEL to all people, and then (c) TEACH and DISCIPLE them. SERIOUS: Speaking about END TIMES Jesus said in MATTHEW 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Those looking for JESUS' RETURN need to realise we have 3 billion more to evangelise first. Let's GET GOING on our part in this, shall we!!! (I'll show you how you can easily start on this, next post!)
And I can tell you that God much BLESSES those who reach out to help THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET HEARD!!!
C. GIVE DUE HELP AND CARE TO THE REALLY REALLY NEEDY. Upon this one Jesus says THAT YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY HANGS!!! We say: "No Lord, NOT SO!! I believe in Christ, so I know that I will go to heaven." THAT'S NOT WHAT JESUS SAYS!!! For what we MUST DO click HERE now to read Matthew 25 - set out very clearly for you in "Who Exactly Did Jesus Say Will Get Eternal Life?" - then return here.
People, this HELP you just read about is NOT OPTIONAL!! Where we spend ETERNITY firmly depends upon us DOING it. And most of us are FAILING I think! (NOTE: These HIGHLY and GREATLY in need that we must give to are to our Brother Christians!) As to our EXCUSES and supposed REASONS for not caring for the really, really needy, and thus NOT MINISTERING TO JESUS HIMSELF: Matthew Henry here summarises what Jesus said:
"When I was in these distresses, you were so selfish, so taken up with your own ease and pleasure, made so much of your labour, and were so loth to part with your money, that you did not minister as you might have done to my relief and succour."
These who FAIL to do this are the ones who are consigned to hell for ever, and GOD CURSES THEM as they go!! But I'm going to show you how you can immediately start to ENSURE that this is NOT your end!!! And in fact READILY FULFIL ALL of the three things above!!!
