THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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 I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

Determining One’s Heavenly Status

CHECKING ONE'S STATUS

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
–John 5:24

Recently, a SHORT discussion on how to determine one’s heavenly status was entertained.

The discussion was not very long because one of the participants in the discussion gave an answer which allowed VERY LITTLE argument.

The discussion went a little like the following.

“I’ve heard you say that believers are to treat other believers differently from non-believers.  How can you tell FOR SURE a believer from a non-believer?”

“How can you tell?  Oh, it’s fairly easy–particularly the ones who congregate in the Sunday social clubs we call the churches.  Just listen to them talk for a few moments.  That will tell you all you need to know.”

“How?”

“Well, believers focus on the things of the NEXT life.  UNbelievers focus on the things of this world.”

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

“UNbelievers talk about their jobs, what they are planning to buy, where they are going on vacation, how their kids are doing in school, what the church is serving to eat next: the things of this present world. Believers focus on the NEXT life, KNOWING that this life is so short; that this life is only a test of where you spend the NEXT one.  That’s how you can tell.”

“Sounds easy.”

“It is–IF you do it.  Most do NOT do it, preferring to get sucked into the conversations rather than determining what those conversations indicate.”

“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

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
–Ecclesiastes 12:13

ABOUT WHICH is the reader more concerned: this present life or the one to come?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

God is NOT a Cuddly Toy

CUDDLY

“God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”
–Nahum 1:2

Presently, almost EVERYTHING one hears of God is that “God is Love.”

Which is TRUE: God IS love.

“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
–1JOHN 4:8

According to God’s Word–which is 100 percent TRUTH–God is love.

So, God MUST BE love–and He is.

But, God is so much more.

God is the PERFECT ‘balancing act.’

God is love–BUT, God is also wrath, judgment and vengeance to all those who disdain God.

Man gets himself in trouble because when man focuses on ‘love,’ he forgets about ‘judgment.’ Man is NOT equipped to balance things as finely as God does.

When a person concentrates on “God is love,” he most likely thinks of God AS IF God was a man.

God is NOT a man, with man’s drawbacks, defects and weaknesses.

When a person concentrates on “God is love,” he is looking at God AS IF God was a cuddly chew toy.

God is NOT a cuddly chew toy:  God is a PERFECT judge, judging PERFECTLY–which sometimes means judging what may appear to be harshly, to the under-informed.

There is a reason the world wants those who dwell upon the earth to believe that “God is love”–to the exclusion of every other attribute or characteristic of God.

And it is an end times reason.

DOES the reader have any thoughts on what that reason could possibly be?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
