“And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
We will now engage the reader in a sort of MIND EXERCISE.
Can the reader think back, back, oh–to maybe about two years ago?
Back before the supposed pandemic had everyone recoiling back six feet?
(“We just want you to be safe!“)
Back before the supposed pandemic had everyone sporting a mask?
(“Now, don’t you feel safer?“)
Back before every media account of the CORONAVIRUS was replete with its own personal set of disease statistics–which were published alongside of the latest ‘news’ of the virus?
In short, back when life was a little more “normal?”
And remember how many others spoke of life returning to “normal?”
Remember when the powers-that-be said (in effect), “Ah, the heck with it. Let’s talk about the “New Normal?”
Back when darkness was much easier to distinguish from the light?
Back when life didn’t come with so many strings attached?
Back when the believer was free to make observations and perceptions which centered around God Almighty?
Back when the heathen was free to honor his pagan gods as long and loudly as he wished?
Back before everything it seemed took on the tinge of the end times?
Back before life itself took on a sort-of end times’ feel to it?
And what, exactly, is a ‘sort-of end times feel’?
One might argue that a ‘sort-of end times feel’ to life was a life MORE guarded.
One might argue that a ‘sort-of end times feel’ to life was a life lived more carefully?
Back before one could act BEFORE checking God’s Word for guidance?
DOES the reader remember ANY of that?
DOES the reader remember ANY of that at all?
DOES the reader remember all of the CHANGES which have happened over the past two years?
WHAT does the reader suppose it all means?
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.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
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.”
