TIME-WASTING, TIME-KILLING DISTRACTIONS
“They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”
Eating, drinking, planting, building, weddings, buying and selling: if there were distractions aplenty in the days leading to destruction thousands of years ago, think about how many time-killing distractions there are now.
Distraction, distraction, distraction: they’re the things of life for most moderns.
Distractions, distractions, distraction: and before you know it, you’re dead.
And most of the distractions are based on lies.
24/7 around-the-clock sports; gardening; reading the non-stop book releases and other publications of the Corporate Media; jobs; advancement; making money; family; friends; endless church social events; rallies and marches and other feel-good activities: all combine to rob God Almighty of his praise and worship; all combine to take time away from prayer; all combine to steal the time from reading God’s Word.
All combine to distract from doing the commandments of Jesus. All combine to prevent the sharing of the gospel.
All the countless activities we call “living life” combine to kill time until you’re dead.
Then it’s too late.
It’s too late to ensure that one’s calling and election are sure.
It’s too late to repent.
It’s too late to work out one’s salvation with fear and trembling.
Whether times runs out because of one’s death or whether it runs out because of the return of Jesus: Satan wants the lost to stay busy until it’s too late.
Until it’s too late to do anything but mourn for all eternity about failing to take care of the business which was REALLY important: the business of salvation.
“So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
The enemy’s plan is keep people occupied “living their lives” until it too late to turn to Jesus.
Distraction, distraction, distraction: and then you’re dead.
Don’t put off your salvation a moment longer.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
