• “When I grow up, I want to be a ________
  • “I want to live in ________, someday”
  • “I want to major in ___________ in college”
  • “I want to travel the world by age 30”
  • “I want a bigger house”
  • “I want to be married by the age of 25”
  • I want to develop a cure for cancer”

It’s not a bad thing to have goals in life, in general. They help set us and motivates us for greater causes in our lives. But IF those goals don’t align with Jesus/the bible, then what GOOD are they?

“For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world but lose his own soul? For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

– Mark 8: 36-37

In other words, a person can have all the money, success, fame, college degrees and “credentials”/”titles” in the world, but if they don’t have Jesus Christ in their lives, then they TRULY have “NOTHING” (spiritually speaking). To the Lord Jesus Christ, that person is nothing but an empty, hallow SHELL of a soul that’s DESPERATELY in need of Salvation in Christ!

Revelation 3: 17-20 proclaims: “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent”

Many people (specifically non-believers or those of other religions) think they don’t NEED Jesus, in order to be able to ETERNALLY SURVIVE! But those folks are VERY SADLY MISTAKEN! Just like many CHRISTIANS today think they don’t NEED Jesus in their day to day lives. This is both sad and tragic! For if only they KNEW the total weight of God’s Judgment upon an unbelieving, idol-worshiping, lazy & ungrateful mankind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Think of a toddler, for instance. Think about how that toddler’s Christian parents (in general) are constantly watching over them, to make sure they’re not doing anything wrong and to guide them into the RIGHT path of righteousness! (And to make sure they’re tying their shoes correctly, etc.) And after awhile, the said toddler in question, begins to “resent it” (hello, the “terrible threes”).

“NO! I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT MYSELF, I DON’T **NEED** YOUR HELP, MOMMY/DADDY!”

But yet, the parent is usually still “supervising” their shoe-tying, etc., ANYWAYS, am I right? haha. And WHEN the toddler notices this, they become EVEN MORE adamant about wanting to stalk off into the next room, DETERMINED to tie their own shoes, etc. The toddler thinks in that moment, “I DON’T **NEED** YOU MOMMY/DADDY! I’M BETTER OFF ON MY OWN, WITHOUT YOU! EEEEE!”

So it goes with mankind. We’re all a bunch of lazy, sinning, ungrateful, unbelieving “toddlers” that think WE know what’s best for our LIVES! So we constantly attempt to make ourselves bigger, better, stronger, more resilient, etc. But IN the process of doing so, we drift further and further away from Jesus, our CREATOR! And IN so doing, our souls become more and more empty, a HALLOW SHELL where “potential righteousness in Jesus’s name” once stood. Our souls are then likened to DEAD BONES WITH NO LIFE IN THEM! For Jesus IS Life!

This is ESPECIALLY TRUE of DNA “EDITING”. All of the scientists in a Crispr lab/IVF/surrogacy lab (as a whole) can likely be likened to a bunch of “spiritual toddlers” that think THEY “know better”.

Romans 6:23 states: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”

In other words…….when God the Heavenly Father up in heaven SEES what these “gene-editing scientists” are doing down here on Earth (changing, rearranging HIS natural DNA design), thinking the whole time that THEY know better, He keeps trying to spiritually warn them OVER AND OVER AGAIN (even as “gently” and “patiently” as he can, AMIDST His Divine Wrath)……….

In fact, he sends MANY of his “Messengers” to TELL such scientists: “NO. YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW BETTER. YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW THE LONG-TERM IMPLICATIONS OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU REARRANGE **HIS** NATURAL DNA DESIGN. TRUST ME, THERE WAS A **REASON** HE ARRANGED DNA CREATION A CERTAIN WAY, WITH A CERTAIN TYPE OF ARRANGEMENT.”

But the scientists, in their “gusto” for “the next best thing, genetically speaking”, sadly, don’t seem to listening (as a whole). Yet, a very small number of them ARE troubled for the possible long-term implications of DNA-tampering…….not necessarily because they are Christian per say, but because they are the one of the only FEW that the Lord’s spirit was able to get THROUGH to………(which is actually a MIRACLE, if you think about it, folks! Cause lets face it, “scientists” – especially “secular” ones (as a whole)  – are some of the most spiritually stiff-necked people in the world when it comes to Jesus & His NATURAL DNA design).

And many of these “somewhat hesitant” scientists did a few test runs and came to find out that YES, DNA-tampering DOES have potentially harmful long-term implications. But exactly what these scientists DO from HERE on out, is between them and Almighty God! Some will no doubt choice to IGNORE the evidence of potential DNA “harm”, and keep at it anyways, figuring that the ends justify the means. But yet others, I imagine, will quickly start rethinking their position in the whole thing and might even “quit” genetics, altogether.

But going back to the main topic, about what a life without Jesus is like. Many upon MANY of today’s people think they “don’t need Him” and/or “Don’t NEED a Savior”. In fact, they live their lives AS IF there’s no God. People (in general) don’t like or want to admit that there’s a God. Because if there’s a God, then THAT would suggest that THAT God has “rules” and “judgments for BREAKING those rules”…….which would even FURTHER suggest that there ARE consequences for breaking those rules, and BECAUSE there’s eternal consequences FOR breaking those divine rules, that would mean they’d need to CHANGE THEIR LIVES!

And see folks, that’s the problem right then and there. Most people are COMFORTABLE with their lives. They don’t WANT to change anything about their lives or their LIFESTYLE (be it perverted lust, money, drugs, materialism, fame, gambling/drinking, etc.) They don’t WANT to admit that they’re a sinner with SIN, in NEED of a Saviour. They want to take the EASY way out. For THEM, it’s a “out of site, out of mind” type of thing. They think they can WILL God to “go away” or “not exist” by simply ACTING like He doesn’t exist and then, living their lives, accordingly!

However……no matter HOW hard they try to WILL God away by their ARDENT DENIAL of HIM, it doesn’t make Him any less real………..or less Wrathful towards ALL unrighteousness. In OTHER words, Jesus exists rather a person believes in Him or not. Heaven and Hell and JUDGMENT exists, rather a person believes in it or not. “I don’t believe in Hell” many people say. But not believing in Hell doesn’t make it any less REAL, folks! Hell is MORE REAL than the air we BREATHE! MORE REAL than the setting Sun! MORE REAL than anything we’ve ever imagined! And someday, the fires of HELL are gonna MERGE INTO the LAKE OF FIRE! [Revelation 20:14]

So in my closing message, here is WHY a life without Jesus is MEANINGLESS! A person can go through their whole entire LIVES “living it up”, going to the best colleges, getting the best jobs, getting the most monetary success that time/money/circumstance can buy, but if Jesus Christ is NOT in their lives, NONE of that is going to matter! Why?

Because someday soon, Jesus is going to create a NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH! The world, as we know it now, will soon PASS AWAY! Plus we will ALL someday soon face THE ETERNAL JUDGMENT SEAT OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHOSE FACE WILL BE **SO** BRIGHT, THAT WE WON’T EVEN BE ABLE TO LOOK AT IT!!!!!!!

And WHEN that happens, the ONLY thing that’ll matter is our spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ! And for those who’ve lived an entire LIFETIME without the BIBLICAL/JEWISH JESUS CHRIST described in the pages of the bible [rather it was NO RELIGION or adamantly/purposely following ANOTHER religion or AN UNBIBLICAL/PAGAN FORM OF JESUS CHRIST – despite already KNOWING of the true, BIBLICAL/Jewish Jesus Christ], Jesus’s Day of ETERNAL JUDGEMENT will be UTTERLY TERRIFYING!

[[Jesus Christ keeps a “record book”, if you will, of ALL his faithful, loyal followers. Those people who not only BELIEVE in Him and His words but OBEY THEM! It’s called “The Lamb’s Book of Life”. For Jesus Christ is the Holy Son of God who’s also called THE LAMB OF GOD. Jesus Christ is also LIFE and CREATED LIFE. Therefore, that’s WHY it’s called “THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE”]]. 

Revelation 20:15 says that WHOSOEVER was NOT found written IN the Book of Life WILL be cast into the (Eternal) LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH!!!!! 

LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE

BURNINGINLAKEOFFIRE2So people, I leave you with THIS: Whatever sin(s) you’re committing right now in your life (be it/they large or small), is it worth AN ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE?  (Remember: ONLY Jesus Christ & Jesus Christ ALONE can set you free from your sins and/or the eternal consequences of your sins, there IS no other way!!!!!!!!!!!)
