THERE IS STILL TIME.
Many connoisseurs of the word of God, even in the condition of listener, aware that the path to liberation and salvation is the Lord Jesus Christ, but the lure of sin in their hearts they are still young and need to enjoy the pleasures of the flesh and the vanity of the world a little more. But what tomorrow will still be within the acceptable time of the Lord?
In the second letter to the Corinthians 6:2, it is written: I heard thee in an acceptable time and succoured thee in the day of salvation, now is the acceptable time, behold now is the day of salvation. So beloved of the Lord's time is not when you get older, is not here for months, years, or after living in the abundance of sin. The Time Lord's today is the day of salvation is the moment you met gospel of Christ, because Jesus said so:
Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned (Mark 16:15, 16).
You knew the Gospel, believed in the words of the Lord Jesus? Amen. So renounce the works of sin, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Him, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven.
In Revelation 3:20, He further said, Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.
The Lord Jesus is knocking at your door, talking in your heart, do not leave it outside, hear the voice of your Holy Spirit, open your heart and let Him come, you will sup with him, will participate in the joy to be his servant, He will satiate your hunger, will quench the thirst of his spirit, and will give you much peace in your heart and eternal life for you and your home.
He will reveal to you great and mighty things which thou knowest not, truly believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. There is still time.
TODAY THE LORD IS NEAR
In the Gospel of Matthew 18:20 Jesus said where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in their midst, and the book of prophecies of Isaiah 55.6 says: Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon Him while He is near.
Today we meet the Lord because He is near, unlike the rich man mentioned in the parable of Jesus (Gospel of Luke 16:19-31), which have died, and in hell (ie Hell) lifted his eyes, being in torment, seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
This man, despite his forbearance can no longer be heard by the Lord, because a great gulf separates the Paradise of God in the place of torment called hell.
That soul was away and could not be reached by the mercies of the Lord was no longer within their acceptable time, because the word says that leaving the soul of this land to other dimensions, being in sin without repentance, nothing more can be done because everyone will be judged according to their works.
Heard testimony concerning a young man, who is knowledgeable of the word of God, one day, working in construction, fell from the height of a building, and dying on the ground, a lady came up with a glass of water, and asked someone to give water to the boy, however he replied: No, I do not want this water, but the water that I needed not to have taken in a timely manner. Saying these words he died. He acknowledged that he had lost the acceptable time of the Lord, sad and terrible end, irreversible situation.
Not just the word of the Lord come into your human understanding, wisdom material, much more is needed, it is necessary that the Gospel of Christ into your heart to make him a new creature redeemed and washed in the blood of the Lamb of God.
And you my dear, been born again? The man born of water and spirit is devoid of vanity, envy, jealousy, greed, pride, lust of the flesh, and all selfish ambition abomination to God.
Jesus said: He who does not like a child will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven The new creature needs a heart like that of a child, which does not hold anger, hurt, anger, desire for revenge, forgiving and loving his neighbor.
The heart of a child is freed from greed, lust, jealousy, is endowed with spiritual purity, charitable, humble in all simplicity and kindness in all manner of living. If you have a pure heart as the heart of a child, truly a new creature.
The ESSENTIAL SANCTIFICATION
In the letter to the Colossians 3:12 and 14 says: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Forbearing one another and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And in Hebrews 12:14, the word says, Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
The word of the Lord exhorts us to seek holiness, without which no one will see God, because the gate is narrow, and few are those who pass through it. Jesus said many are called, but few will be chosen to inherit eternal life.
Today, there is still time, however the Lord Jesus warns of surveillance because the signs indicate that we are truly living in the last days. The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to rapture His church is imminent, and will catch many by surprise, because he will come at a time when many did not await him. In Matthew 24:27 Jesus said, As the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man.
And when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of his glory, and all the nations will be gathered before him, and one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
And he shall set the sheep on his right and the goats will be left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world (Matthew 25:31 to 34). And give to every one according to his works.
The righteous will go into the holy city, New Jerusalem, a place where there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor pain, nor crying, but the disobedient will go to eternal fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, pain. The option to choose is your brother, where you want to spend eternity? Jesus is waiting, go running into his arms, THERE IS STILL TIME.
