If you believe in Jesus…

In may places in our world, if you believe in Jesus and what He stood for and in Who He is, then you are either not very intelligent or you are an infidel. Why should we be considered this way? If you are a Christian and not a hypocrite then you have the hope of one day being in Heaven with Him. There are many hypocrites in churches all over the world, which is why many people say that they don’t want to come to church. That’s OK, but you will be with them in hell for an eternity if you don’t learn and accept the Truth.

This is a hard lesson to teach and to take into your heart, but it is necessary in the times that we are living in. If people, regardless of their faith or lack of faith, are not told about the option that they have and the choice that only they can make then when they stand before God what can they say? I didn’t know, Lord? Maybe not, but it was still your choice to find out or not. It is also your choice which will condemn you to a place that was not prepared for us, but was prepared for Satan and those who rebelled with him.

TheĀ choice is yours, whether to believe in Christ or not. But God has provided a way for you to be in Heaven, if you choose wisely the way that is taught in His Word. It points toward Jesus from beginning to end and the choice is yours alone to make. It is the only choice that will give you eternal life with Him, because apart from Him is not life, at least not one that you would enjoy.

I have heard many people that I grew up with and worked with over the years say that they would rather party with the devil than serve God forever. The sad fact is that there will be no party in hell. Once you or anyone else arrives there, it will be torment forever. At this point in time, hell is not populated at all but it will be. If you choose not to believe in it, fine, but that won’t make it go away.

Just as not believing in fire or gravity, if you can convince yourself of these things, won’t save you from either one…it will be the same for those who make the conscious choice to do as they please just to find out which is right. You won’t have a chance to change your mind once this life is over so choose well!

The demons and Satan know that God exists and they know Who Jesus is, but they chose not to bow down or serve them. It is our choice in this life to choose to give our life to Jesus or to “do our own thing”. If you choose this path, the easy choice for most people, your life will be the same as it would be otherwise, but what happens when you draw your last breath? You will stand before the Judge, God Himself who will ask you what you did with Jesus although He already knows. You will see your life and every decision that you made or should’ve made and then you will know, even though it will be too late to change your choice.

We. as mankind, are loved by God enough that He sent His Son to die for our sins, in our place, so that we can come to Jesus and ask Him into our life and our heart and be cleansed through His sacrifice. We are not worthy of attaining Heaven on our own merits, regardless of how good those “works” may be. If they are not done through the love of Jesus and with humble hearts in order to give Him the glory then they mean nothing at all! One dollar given through Jesus and in love by Him is worth more than billions given without any humility or Christian love expressed through it.

Think about your life and the things that you have done in it. If you have broken even one of the Ten Commandments, you are guilty of all of them. When you are convicted by these laws of God then you can see that you are a sinner, regardless of what the world may tell you. Think about it and let me hear from you.

What is going on?

In our world today there are many problems and wars and diseases. Many people are wondering why would God allow all of this to happen? He allows it because He wants people to look to Him for help but He is not the cause of these problems. Satan is the cause of them because he hates us!

In many ways the old saying of “the devil made me do it” isn’t far from the truth, except that he didn’t make you do anything. He just encouraged and prodded you in that direction, you make the decision. In many ways, our world would be far better off if Satan had not come down here but that was part of God’s plan as well.

God loves us all and wants the best for us but He knew even before we were born that there would be rebellion because there was rebellion in Heaven before the world began. There are some religions today that discount the original sin of Adam, but it happened and we are all inheritors of it. God promised a way of salvation to Eve in the “seed of the woman” and to the rest of us as well. That Promise was Jesus Christ and through His sacrifice on the cross and through the grace that God has given to us through Him we can all be saved from our sins and our sinful nature.

Do we have to do anything to be saved like obey the Ten Commandments or other laws that were handed down through Moses from God? Actually, the answer is no, because we can’t accomplish more than Christ did on the cross! He paid the price needed for our salvation, all that we have to do is believe in Him and His sacrifice and ask Him into our heart to cleanse us so that we can be His.

Choose the life that you were meant to have, the one with Him in it. If you do the rewards will be unbelievable by the world’s standards, if you do not then eternity will be unbelievably long and painful because of your choice alone.
