There is no reincarnation, there is no second chance, there is no eternal sleep. The word of God says that you will die ONE time and then you will be JUDGED for your deeds. You will be conscious forever-- whether in heaven or in the lake of fire.
||"Behold, ALL souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die." Ezekiel 18:4|
You are a sinner and you WILL die. God did not create man to die. He created him to live forever. But man decided to disobey God, to transgress his commandment--and man does the same thing to this very day. Every eyeball that reads these words belongs to a transgressor. Yes, YOU reader have transgressed the law of God--and you will die as a result. Your own common sense tells you that an all-holy God will not allow liars, murderers, rapists, sodomites, liars, whoremongers and thieves in His home (heaven). Common sense tells you that criminals belong in JAIL. Well, you are a criminal. You've broken God's laws and those who die without a pardon will enter into the holding pen (hell) and eventually the penitentary which is the lake of fire.
People make and break a lot of appointments--doctor's appointments, dentist's appointments, etc.--but there is ONE appointment we are ALL going to keep. Doesn't matter who you are or what kind of name you have in this foolish world. Everybody is going to show up for this appointment. From the richest man in the world to the poorest man in the world. From the wisest man in the world to the biggest fool in the world. From the most famous man in the world to the most obscure and unknown man in the world. The best lookin' man and the best lookin' woman--everybody going to hit the dust. That's the way it is. That is the reality. We are ALL going to meet the same end.
Are you wicked?
Are you a wicked man today? Don't answer too quickly--you'll probably say no when the answer is yes. "But I'm no murderer." You don't have to be a murderer. "I don't steal." You don't have to be a thief. Do you know what the greatest commandment in the WHOLE Bible is?
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first
Is the Lord Jesus Christ the number one thought in your head? Do you wake up with Him on your mind? Do you seek to do His will everyday? Do you worship Him? Do you keep His commandments? Do you know Him? More importantly, does He know you? Do you understand the gospel? Do you preach it to others? Do you know that you have been born again? Do you hate the ways of this world?
If you can answer "yes" to these questions, then you're in great shape. You are prepared for death. If not, you are wicked. The rest of your wicked deeds stem from the fact that you YOU DO NOT LOVE GOD. You don't listen to Him in any aspect and you run your life the way you see fit. You are rebellious, lawless, and disobedient. I don't care how nice you seem in your appearance and ways, in your soul you are a wicked man. Wicked man, God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son for our wicked ways. His Son, Jesus Christ became a sacrifice to die in your place. He died FOR YOUR SINS. He did not die for Himself. He did not have any sins. Jesus Christ was already one with the Father BEFORE He ever came to earth. He came down here on a mission to save our wretched carcasses. REPENT and turn to Jesus. Ask Him to forgive your many trespasses and abominable life that you have lived totally ignoring the Lord.
"Man is basically good." No he's not. He's an unreliable, lawless wretch. The Bible says so and your experience tells you so. You are a liar just like every man is. Man is full of iniquity--backbiting, rape, perverse conversation, lasciviousness, adultery, fornication, covetousness, murder, torture, stealing, cussing, drugging, pride. Why do you think hell-i-vision is full of whoredom? Because that is what we like. Why do young girls run around looking like harlots and why are men such whoremongers? Why do psychotherapists try any solution but Jesus Christ? We were conceived in sin and when we come into this world we run to do evil. You do not have to teach a child to do evil. They do it automatically. Man is a rebellious creature from his youth and he just gets worse and worse as he grows older. O wicked man that reads this--thou hast forsaken the righteous, lovingkind, gracious Lord of heaven.
The Way of the Cross
We deserve hell for our hellish deeds. BUT GOD IS RICH IN MERCY. You don't have to remain on the broad way that leadeth unto destruction. Jesus came so that you could be reconciled unto a holy, righteous, loving, merciful and kind God. There is only one God. The God of the Bible is God. There is NO other God. You must do business with Him and He hath appointed ONE WAY for you to know Him--Jesus Christ. That is why the name of this website is "Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way to God".
O wicked man, your flesh, the devil and the world have so confused your mind. Consider your soul. You could die today. May the Lord grant you repentance unto life. Turn to God. Do not despise His precious gift of Jesus Christ. Don't be wicked any more. Love God and serve Him. AWAKE to righteousness--the righteousness of faith in Jesus Christ who died for YOUR carcass. He will wash you in His blood and He will make you a new creature--but you have to REPENT of your wicked ways. Admit that you have not loved God and that you have lived for the devil and his ways. FORSAKE sin and live for Jesus--lay hold on eternal life. Get on your knees and ask Jesus to save you and make you acceptable. Get yourself a King James Bible (not a "new" King James a regular King James) and start reading the gospel of John. The Bible is your protection, your comfort, and more! There is something wonderful awaiting you on the other side of your study and obedience of the word. Start praying and getting rooted and grounded in the faith of Jesus Christ TODAY.
There are only two kingdoms. The kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil. King Jesus will give you ABUNDANT life (now and for eternity), peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The devil will give you restlessness, temporary pleasure, death and the lake of fire. Flee from the wrath to come. Serve King Jesus of a truth and you will never regret it.
What you gonna do?
Your death day is coming. Believe it. Over 120,000 people die everyday. These people don't just wake up and say, "Oh, today is a good day to die." They get up take a bath and start on their merry way just as if today will be like every other day...but it's not. It is the day that their soul will be required of them.
Man's breath is in his nostrils. People in the best of health are only a breath away from death. Death is only the beginning of eternal consciousness--either in heaven or in the lake of fire...Get right with God today. If you are wicked, you need to be afraid...very afraid. You need Jesus. Call on Him right now.
