Well, it really isn't so bad...
Friday, Saturday & Sunday November 15th-17th, 2002
You know, earth isn't so bad, nor is life here on earth. Oh, I know we have Christians enslaved, whipped, beat, sold into slavery to muslims and even murdered in the Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia and a host of other muslim nations. We have Christians enslaved, beat, and executed by having their body parts removed for market in China. We have baby girls slaughtered in the womb just for being girls in India and throughout Asia. And here in the USA, we have people lining up to go kneel down to a guy dressed in a black robe, asking him to forgive their sins while he sodomize's little boys.
But on the flip side, we have beautiful sunrises and sunsets, we have gravity to keep us from drifting off into space and we have water to drink and food to eat. So, yes, this earth isn't so bad a place after all. Or at least not for us who are Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Born Again Christians, for this earth is the closest we ever come to hell. As a matter of fact, you could actually say, that this time on earth is our hell. And for hell, it isn't such bad a place.
But, for those who worship satan. And that is all who are not Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, this time on earth is their heaven. And as for heaven, well the earth leaves a lot to be desired. Wars, disease, slavery, death, lingering illnesses, starvation, and the other horrors of life here on planet earth. Just think, for those who worship satan, this is as good as it gets. For this time on earth is their heaven. For while this time on earth is my hell, it is heaven for the unsaved, for let us look at what awaits them:
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear God which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) Yes, Jesus Himself has told us that hell does exist. He warns us not to fear the satan worshipers of the world, but to instead fear God. For all the satan worshipers of the world can do is take away your earthly life and if you are a true Born Again Christian, the satan worshiper isn't doing anything by killing you other than sending you out of your hell and into heaven.
But, what awaits them? What awaits the satan worshiper? first let us see who the satan worshiper is:
He that saith, I know Jesus, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (1 John 2:4) And what are the Lord's commandments to His:
Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15) ,
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: (Matthew 28 19&20)
and A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (John 13:34)
So, what is John telling us in First John 2:4? He is telling us that if we claim to be Christ's, yet do not do the things Christ commanded us to do, we are not Christ's, but instead are liars. And who are these liars? Well, the beloved Apostle John, the favorite Apostle of the Lord Himself, gives us the answer to this question, now read carefully, for your salvation may depend upon your understanding of just what John has to say in these next verse. And keep this in mind, every word written in the Bible was dictated to the writer by God. Now let us look at who and what these liars are:
it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
(John, tell us, who are these antichrist?)
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
(John, tell us, how can we tell them from us?)
But ye have an unction (anointing) from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Whosoever denies the Son, the same hath not the Father: (1 John 2:18-23)
So, now you know, you know who belongs to Christ and who does not. Those who do not belong to and worship the Lord Jesus belong to satan and those who belong to satan, and are alive today, regardless of their condition in life, for them, this time on earth is their heaven.
Now, let us look at their hell:
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:50)
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. (Luke 13:28)
And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 25:30)
Where their worm (eternal life) dies not, and the fire is not quenched. (Mark 9:44)
So, what is their hell like? Well according to the Lord God Creator of all things, including hell and the lake of fire, it is a place of extreme torment, a place where the fires burn continually, giving off such intense heat that He has to tell us that they who are there will never be destroyed by it but will spend eternity gnashing their teeth in pain. And yet while it is a place of intense and never ending fire, it gives off no light, for this place is in outer darkness.
So, when you think about it, even with all the horrors of this life and this planet, earth isn't such a bad place after all, at least not for those of us who just visiting and have a much better place to go to, a place of eternal bliss, a place occupied not by satan and his slime, but by God Almighty. And we don't go there as slaves or servants, not even as workmen, we go there as adopted sons and daughters.
What about you? Where are you going? Is this time on earth your hell or your heaven? Not sure? Well, stop relying upon commentary and your gut instincts and start reading your Bible. Stop trying to figure it out and rely upon the Lord. The minions of satan, the muslim hordes are bragging about another attack on the USA, or one of those who support us, in the near future, maybe today, maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow. What if you are one on the ones toasted in their next attack, what if you're one of the dead? There you are standing before God and He looks down at you from His throne and says "So, tell Me, why should I let you into My Son Jesus's heaven?" what do you say to Him?
Read what Jesus tells you so that you can be prepared for that question:
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son, Jesus, into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
He that believeth on Him, Jesus, is not condemned:
but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus! (John 3:16-18)
Your salvation is your responsibility, all I can do is shout at you in warning, but, your salvation is not between me and you, it is between you and God Almighty, the Lord Jesus, the CHRIST!
Many of you are fathers, let me tell you something, you are teaching your kids a ton of things by your actions and behavior. If you turn from Christ to satan, in all probability so will your kids. You are going to belong to one or the other, Christ or satan, you are going to spend eternity with one or the other, the choice is yours. I have made my choice, I will serve and belong to the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the Holy One of God, the Creator of heaven and earth and all things, for He made me to serve Him, He made me for His pleasure. And you can read anything you like into the above, but I assure you of this, one day, if you have chosen satan, Christ will wipe that smile and smirk of your face.
For it is written:
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27)
... for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. (Romans 14:10-12)
Yes, in that day, everything on earth will acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ, GOD!
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (Philippians 2:10)
No, I won't miss this earth, but many of you will.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
