The most important decision you will ever make in your life is who or what you put your faith in.
What I can tell you after 21 years as a Christian is that God loves you, already knows your past, where you are now and the darkness you are going through.
The days of Noah were characterized by a pervasive wickedness with deceit, sexual immorality, violence and coldness of hearts.
The world was going through each day doing the same thing unaware of the approaching end. Have you noticed each decade has gotten incrementally worse since after WWII without fail? So by extension the next decade will be worse than now. That should tell you something. Some describe others as faithless however that is not true. Everyone is putting their faith in something.
Approximately 150,000 people did not make it through today. And tomorrow the same thing will happen again.
Turn now and make peace with God and do not leave it until it is too late. You are not promised tomorrow so take that to heart. That was the mistake made by all during the time of Noah as well who did not listen to the pleas from Noah to Repent and make peace with God.
“Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near” were the first words spoken by Jesus when he started his ministry. Learn all you can about what true repentance really is. Without repentance there is no forgiveness of sins,
no salvation, no revival or blessings from God.
Luke 13 – Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them – do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
What is true repentance?
- Be honest and see yourself as you really are
- Confront your sins without blame or excuses
- Turn to God and ask for forgiveness from your heart
Signs of true repentance
- You have noticeably changed (direction/thinking)
- You attitude toward sin has changed
- You believe in God and feel free
- God is now the center of your life
- You want to know the will of God for your life
- You want to know the word of God
- You obey God
It is a tactic of the enemy (Satan) to distract you with the problems of this world, and your desire for things in this life until time runs out for you.
It is like a fire coming over a hill and you run to get on a boat that is leaving. The ship master says he does not know you (there is no relationship) and turns you away. You are terrified at that point knowing it is over and nothing can save you. Not your good works, not your money, your friends, your intellect, your reputation, not even God.
That is the experience of an unbeliever when his/her life ends or any unbeliever that is still here for the return of Jesus. The analogy is similar to the parable of the ten virgins from Matthew 25.
There is good news however. If you are reading this, it is not too late!
There are two doors that close. The first is the end of your life when you leave this world. The second door is the one to heaven that closes if you have no relationship with Jesus.
This world is a temporary place that God has created, giving you a fixed amount of time to turn to the Lord. Do not make more of this world than what it is! The world system is spiritually dead and opposes God. It will keep you bound unless you turn to God.
This is pure inspiration: watch it all!
John 8:36 – So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
The present creation is now passing away at a faster rate and you will perish with it as well if you are not in the Ark. You cannot live in two worlds. It is in the dark times when the grace of God is even more abundant.
Make peace with God through Christ Jesus for the new and everlasting life. Know peace, healing, truth and relationship with God before it is too late. Do not continually harden your hearts and resist the Lord when he knocks at your door.
Romans 10:13 – “Any everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
