Why turn to Christ? Weekend of November 2nd & 3rd, 2002

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27)

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)

You can not wait until you die to become a Born Again Christian! There is no purgatory, only heaven and hell! We live in very perilous times, we live in the times that God refers to in His holy and 100% accurate book, the Holy Bible, as the last days or the end times. Now take a look at some of this weekend's headline stories from around the world.

From the BBC: "Experts say governments across Europe need to plan for a virulent flu outbreak that could claim hundreds of thousands of lives."

From the Guardian Unlimited: "BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) - A massive earthquake with a magnitude up to 7.7 rocked parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island Saturday, injuring at least 35 people and damaging buildings.

Seismologists in Singapore said there was a high risk of tsunami - powerful waves caused by seismic activity - in western Sumatra.

Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said the quake was magnitude 5.3, but the U.S. Geological Survey and the Hong Kong Observatory said the quake registered 7.5.

Australian scientists said it registered magnitude 7.7, which makes it a major earthquake capable of widespread, heavy damage."

And from the internet news: "Diplomacy has failed -- meaning that only a revolutionary advanced technology will save the Earth from relentless global warming driven by greenhouse gas emissions, scientists warned yesterday.

Avoiding a catastrophic effect on climate from the burning of fossil fuels would require political will, international cooperation and huge resources, said the team from a group of American universities. But "no amount of regulation" could solve the problem, they said."

Yes, we live in perilous times. If a muslim sniper,'s bullet doesn't get you, an earthquake or the flu will and if you somehow survive those, global warming lurks around the corner to fry you, and if you still persist in living, well, you can bet technology will be your end in one way or another. And yet, the One and Only that can save a person from these disasters is left out in the cold. The One who can and will give us peace and comfort is still barred from coming in. We turn to science, we turn to promiscuous sex, we turn to Peter Jennings and the rest of the nightly news motley crew, yet the One and Only , the One who created all things and holds all the answers and cures, we ignore.

We turn to government, we turn to politicians, we blame the innocent and slaughter the baby in the womb, and still our world only gets worse and worse, and many of you continue to procrastinate. You still try to do it on your own, you still hide you Christianity under a basket, in a closet or keep it to yourself.

What are you waiting for? When are you going to go out and work for the Lord? When are you going to put the Lord ahead of your paycheck? Take a moment and either look at your favorite friend or relative who is unsaved and think this:

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27)

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)


But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 8:12)

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:42)

And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:50)

Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 22:13)

And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 24:51)

And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 25:30)

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)

If you don't talk to that favorite friend or relative who is damned to eternal gnashing of teeth, who will? The only reason that I can think of that you continue to not preach to your friends and kin is because you really don't believe God's Word. You really don't trust God to keep you and protect you, you really don't believe that this is the closest we who are saved will ever come to hell and that this earth is the heaven of the unsaved. And you know something? Id you don't believe, you probably aren't saved. And if that's the case, you need not worry about your unsaved friends and kin, you had best worry about yourself. Now I know that in our conversations I have told many of you that I think you are saved, but, am I God? Can I save you? No! God forbid, for your salvation is between you and the Lord. And if you do not believe His Holy and Emphatic Word, then you are, in all probability, satan's and not the Lord Jesus'. So, what are you to do? Get on your knees, go to the Lord Jesus, not as His friend, but as His creation, His slave and beg Him to forgive you, tell Him that you know you are pond scum and not worthy of salvation, but beg Him to forgive you and let you be His. Tell Him that you are sorry, confess your sins to Him, tell Him that you have chosen to be His slave instead of satan's slave and that you are using your free will that He gave you to make that decision. Stay on your knees and confess every sin you can think of. And keep this in mind, God sees your heart. If you come to Him out of anything other than a true and honest desire to serve Him, you will not fool Him.

For remember this:

Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?" And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23) You can not lie to God. You can not deceive God. You can not fake Him out or bluff your way out of eternal damnation. You will either put Him first or He will put you last!

Guys these are the last days, you can not go one deceiving yourself into thinking you are a true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb, purchased with His Blood Christian, if you are not out there doing His work. And what is His work for us to do? What is it that He has demanded that His servants, His slaves do?

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) Notice Jesus says name, not names.

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)

and This is My commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (John 15:12) Husbands you re not loving your wife if you do not love her as Christ loves us. If you are not willing to die for her, you are not loving her. Nor are you loving when you refuse to do as He has commanded you to do.

Lord Give us the courage to do what is right in Your sight, help us to shake off the loves of this world and to focus on that which you are preparing for us with You in heaven. Help us Lord to stop being cowards, to stop being men of this world, to stop lusting over the things of this world and to focus on the glories that are with You.


God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
