As Soon As One Starts To “Question” God/The Bible, The Devil Has Won!

The bible says that in the Last Days, there would be “scoffers” and many of those who “question its authority/authenticity”. Some of the most often-heard quotes are:

  • “Does the bible REALLY say that homosexuality/homosexual living is a sin?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that full-water immersion baptism is required?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that ALL people who aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life go Hell/Lake of Fire/Eternal Destruction?”
  • “Does the bible HONESTLY condemn pre-marital sex as sin?”
  • “Do I I REALLY have to love my neighbor as myself?”
  • “Is it TRULY necessary to forgive those who have hurt me?”
  • “Are celebrating the Lord’s BIBLICAL holidays and BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath TRULY REQUIRED by the Lord?”
  • “Is celebrating today’s “Paganized Christian” holidays REALLY an “abomination” unto the Lord?”

But see, that’s how the Devil operates! He tries to get us to DOUBT the Lord’s “authority” and the Lord’s “wrath” towards ALL things considered as sin/unrighteousness.

Many in today’s “culture” will say things like, “Yeah well, WHO is to say what’s considered righteous or not? WHO gets to be the judge?” But both of those questions have ALREADY been answered in the bible, quite honestly! The Lord Jesus himself created and made all things, HE determines what’s righteous or not, and HE and HE alone, is “the righteous judge” of ALL of mankind!

Just think for a moment. If you were the creator of a distinct piece of “art”, for example, you’d OWN that “art”, you’d have all the “bragging rights” of that “art”, and you and you alone (as the owner and creator of “said art”), would be able to be the “righteous judge” of that “art” and would get to decide what was good or bad about it and FOR it, right? So it is with Almighty God!

But therein lies the problem: AS SOON AS we start to “question the authority” of either the bible AND/OR Yeshua/Jesus Christ, we’re ALREADY being deceived by the Devil, in that very moment of “questioning!” Because remember that Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy! And his NUMBER ONE GOAL is to UNDERMINE THE AUTHORITY OF GOD/YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST AND THE BIBLE!

Basically, Satan the Devil doesn’t really care in WHAT way/ways he does that, just so long AS he does it! When a child of God believes every word of the bible, Satan gets really, really angry and frustrated and so, has to try to find subtle ways to try to GET that child of God to “question the bible”, “question Jesus” and more or less to “question everything”.

And one of his MOST POPULAR techniques for doing this is to focus on things such as THESE:

  • “So……only the RIGHTEOUS are gonna be saved while the unrighteous will be condemned and burned for eternity…….hhhmm……sounds “loving”……..how “loving” of the Most High to burn certain people alive for eternity……Is that TRULY loving? Would a true, LOVING God send people to Hell? Hhhmm……guess the Lord of the bible isn’t so loving afterall, is he?”
  • “You say or claim that Jesus is a LOVING God…….Okay then, why did he make you go through all of that hell in your life, then? Perhaps he’s forgotten about you down here or doesn’t like you so much, afterall!”
  • “Look at all the evil/unrighteous things you’ve done in your life! There’s NO WAY Jesus could ever forgive you for that!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and read your bible and pray! The Lord is ANGRY with you, beyond compare and nothing you say or do will change that!”
  • “The Lord’s gonna condemn you someday, you can COUNT on it!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and preach the gospel of Salvation to people or try to! Nobody’s gonna listen to you, anyways!”
  • “Is the Lord Jesus REALLY gonna send good-natured Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, non-believers and Jews to hell? Certainly he’ll judge them by their good-natured “hearts” and not their “religions”, right?”
  • “The Lord’s NOT REALLY gonna send people to hell……it’s just a scare-tactic, is all!”

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? But then again, it’s not just the children of God that he tries to work against, it’s EVERYONE! Rather people realize this fact or not! For NOT ONLY does Satan fight against people who WON’T submit to him in any way (think biblical-roots Christians/Messianic Jews, for example) but also against those that DO (Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, Satanists, Paganized Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.) How? He tries to undermine the Word of God/image of God to EVERYONE (Christian and non-Christian ALIKE!)

One of the most popular misconceptions floating around out there in modern-day “Christiandom” is that “Satan will never fight against someone who’s already his!” (spiritually speaking) and that’s a LIE! I’m gonna tell you why…….look at all the Satanic and/or Luciferian movie stars who get hooked on drugs and die young/etc.! You think Satan and his demons weren’t actively spiritually/mentally fighting against that person ALL ALONG FROM THE GET-GO, behind the scenes? THINK AGAIN, FOLKS!

Because truth be told, Satan fights JUST AS MUCH against Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans as he does any OTHER human group, including Christians! The brutal reality is that ALL OF HUMANITY is being battled against by Satan! There’s not ONE single human sole on this ENTIRE PLANET that’s not somehow being spiritually battled against by Satan, rather people realize that or not!

In fact, think back to the time you were a little kid and you felt “tempted” to lie or steal candy from the candy store, etc.? Even if you didn’t grow up in a “Christian home”…….or perhaps a time in the modern age when you ever felt “tempted” (even “minorly tempted” – even if you only felt “tempted” JUST ONCE) to cheat on your significant other….. You think Satan and his demons DIDN’T have something to do with that? OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE!

The brutal reality is that SATAN HATES MANKIND! Not just “SOME” of mankind, mind you, but ALL of mankind! Why? Because humans are made in the image of Almighty God! And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Satan HATES God’s image! And anything having to DO with “God’s image” (unborn babies in the womb and/or one man/one woman marriage, in which NATURAL PROCREATION occurs!)

Which brings to my mind the gay/transgender movement/argument. Transgenders will oftentimes say, “I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body” or “I feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body”, etc. But tell me! Since when do “FEELINGS” dictate natural God-given BIOLOGY? If a person “felt” like a horse, should we allow them surgery to “become a horse?”

Certainly you will see the total ridiculous in the “transgender argument”. Plus you will ALSO see that believing one is something that goes AGAINST one’s natural God-given biology is more like a MENTAL ILLNESS. And surely, digging a little deeper, you will also start to see that ALL mental illnesses are DEMONICALLY INDUCED! Now, there’s a total difference between DEMONIC POSSESSION and DEMONIC OPPRESSION!

[DEMONIC POSSESSION is where a person is COMPLETELY taken over by demons and forced to do their will, while DEMONIC OPPRESSION is where a person is only PARTIALLY taken over by demonic spirits (in their minds) and aren’t yet FULLY POSSESSED]. Therefore, when a demonically oppressed “transgender” person gets sex-change surgery, they THEN become demonically possessed BY the demon spirits that were originally “spiritually oppressing them” TO BEGIN WITH! Make sense?

Satan UTILIZES the gay/transgender argument to further his agenda of “undermining the Word of God”. And who or what is the Word of God? I’m glad you asked! The Word of God is JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! And the bible is the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD! Just like we humans are made in the IMAGE OF GOD! That’s not to say that WE are gods! That’s ONLY to say that we were made in God’s image! And Satan hates the image of God SO MUCH, that he’s willing to do anything to try to destroy it! And the gay/transgender movement is precisely one of the main ways he does that!

People think the gay/transgender movement is all about “gay/trans rights”. But what it REALLY is, at its VERY CORE, is a movement to UNDERMINE THE WORD OF GOD **AND** TO DESTROY THE IMAGE OF GOD! [The image of God being a biologically-born man and a biologically-born woman in a TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE and any children they NATURALLY produce!]

That’s why Satan loves gay marriage and “gay adoption” so much! BECAUSE IT UNDERMINES THE IMAGE OF GOD! (Hint: It’s got absolutely NOTHING to do with “rights”…….the only “rights” the “movement” is trying to procure is “THE RIGHT TO SIN” and the “RIGHT TO STAMP OUT THE BIBLE/CHRISTIAN WITNESSING ON THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY”. That’s ALL it really is, folks! WAKE UP!)

The only way that Satan can get a person (or in some cases, an entire “church”) to defy the IMAGE of God, is to UNDERMINE the WORD OF GOD! And the only way Satan can undermine the Word of God (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) is to destroy the Image of God! Do you see now how those two things work hand in hand together, in Satan’s master scheme of things?

Here’s the several ways Satan utilized to try to permanently destroy the Word of God AND the Image of God:

  1. The Gay/Transgender Movement
  2. World Religions
  3. Global Government (U.N., etc.)
  4. Media & Entertainment Industry
  5. “Newer bible translations” (NIV, ESV, etc.)
  6. Church denominations and SECTS (certainly they can’t ALL be right, correct?)
  7. The Roman Catholic Church
  8. Atheism/Satanism/Wicca/New Age Movement
  9. Etc.

But I ask you and leave you with THIS: The last time you felt yourself “questioning something” from the bible (as in, questioning the AUTHORITY of the bible on a certain subject), what was it that led you to question it? Was it someone’s video on Youtube? A movie? A pastor? A friend/family member/coworker? A book or news article?

What was it SPECIFICALLY that led you to start “questioning the bible’s authority on something?” Because any thing or person that leads you to “question the authority” on anything in the bible (and I do mean ANYTHING – Old OR New Testament) is NOT OF GOD! So remember that.

The next time you find yourself “questioning the bible” and its authority on something, ask yourself if that “questioning” is biblical. And if it’s not, please pray the following prayer:

“Almighty Yeshua/Jesus, please reveal to me specifically what it was that led me to question your word in the bible. And once you reveal that thing/person to me, please help me to remain strong and true to your word in the bible. Please protect me from questioning your word, ever, ever again. Amen”.

Why The HATE?

It’s ONE thing not to believe in A god or God. It’s quite ANOTHER thing to lambast those who DO!

I don’t get it.

Why all the hate for something a person “so-called” doesn’t believe in? (And again, I don’t say this against ALL atheists, ONLY those who brazenly speak out against Christianity with such “hatred” in their hearts!)

What is “hating God” gonna do for that person, at the end of the day? Did I miss something, here?

If, for example, many people believed in the flying spaghetti monster, and I myself did not, I’d laugh them to scorn ONE time on perhaps ONE Youtube video and then go about my life, no further “scorn” from me would be needed, on my part. For I would simply KNOW beyond 100% of a doubt that the “F.S.M” didn’t exist and I’d be 100% comfortable IN my position of knowing that it didn’t exist.

And in fact, deep down, I’d even feel sorry for such people that believed in “its” existence, as NO archaeological or scientific evidence would support their “claims”, as it were. And I wouldn’t even pay much attention to those that believed the thing existed, for I’d KNOW the thing was false and no harm, no foul, right?

BUT…..if I “secretly” believed that there WAS a small possibility the “flying spaghetti monster” did in fact exist (theoretically speaking), and that this “F.S.M” could actually send me to the lake of fire someday for “defying/denying it”, THEN I might act with “defensive hatred” towards it/those whom believed in it.

And IN the process of doing so, I would be EVER-SO-DESPERATELY trying to convince myself that “such a thing” didn’t exist. But yet, I’d also have to realize at the end of the day that not all the cussing and hating and mocking in the world’s going to make something not exist that exists! (Even if I didn’t believe it existed!)

That’s why HATING something that doesn’t even so-called exist in one’s mind would IMPLY that a person “secretly believes” that said things actually exist (or at the VERY least, have a mere small chance of “existing”). People act angrily towards things they FEAR!

And again, I don’t believe in the flying elevator. BUT you don’t see me making “hateful” statements towards it. Because I KNOW it doesn’t exist, PERIOD! I might make “mocking jokes” from time to time about people whom DID believe in the “flying elevator” (metaphorically speaking). But I wouldn’t openly hate on the thing! Because first of all, there’s nothing there for me to hate, right? The thing simply does NOT exist! Therefore, it’d be like yelling at the OPEN AIR!

Many people HATE the bible and act as if it’s gonna sprout a pair of claws and teeth and physically bite them or something, if they get too close to it or hold it in their hands! And they hate on Jesus Christ/Yeshua with such vile hatred in their hearts, when they don’t even know Him!

Ask yourselves this question: is it okay to hate and pass judgement on someone you don’t even know? Most people would agree that it’s NOT okay to IMMEDIATELY hate and pass judgement on someone you don’t even know. So WHY hate Jesus Christ with such vile hatred in their hearts? What does hating Jesus DO for them? Does it give them 100% assurance of Salvation? No. Does it pretty much guarantee them a free pass into the lake of fire someday, provided they don’t repent of their sins? Yes. So truly…….hating Jesus Christ does absolutely NOTHING for them!

True, it might be make them temporarily rich, famous, popular or the like in the SHORT/TEMPORAL run. But what about the LONG-TERM/ETERNAL run?

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36 [New Testament]  

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good” – Psalm 14:1 [Old Testament] 

But again, Psalm 14:1 isn’t just talking about atheists, it’s talking about all people (in general) who live their lives AS IF there is no God! For example, just because a person BELIEVES in God doesn’t mean that they live their lives AS THOUGH God exists. Let me elaborate, here……….

For example………

Joe Schmoe may believe in God and go to church every week. But does he LIVE as though there’s a God, every other day of the week? Does he LIVE AS though there’s a God who’s watching his every move, his every deed, thought and action? [Think of the Song called “I’ll Be Watching You” by the Police, for instance. And imagine it were the Lord himself singing the song to his creation!]. 

True, while Romans 3:23 DOES state: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (meaning, everybody sins and nobody’s perfect), that does NOT mean that a believing Christian [“Joe Schmoe”] should live their lives as though God does not exist.

“So how does a person live their life as though God does not exist?”, one may ask.

And the answer is very simple:

  • by NOT giving God the praise, worship & daily acknowledgement that he deserves!
  • To go to church once a week and “forget God” the rest of the week!
  • To not remember all the great and mighty things he did for the ancient Hebrews!
  • To also not remember or acknowledge all the great things God has done in one’s own life!
  • To DISREGARD the 10 commandments and act as if they no longer matter!
  • To NOT believe in the bible [specifically, the creation account in the book of Genesis] or any of its precepts!
  • To DISREGARD the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Pentecost, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc.) AS IF they are “Jewish feasts, ONLY!”
  • To CELEBRATE in Paganized holidays that truly have NOTHING TO DO WITH JESUS CHRIST and that actually MOCK HIM (Christmas, Easter, Halloween, New Year’s, St. Valentine’s Day, etc.)
  • To not ever read and meditate on the bible
  • To not ever pray about anything
  • To not ever focus on one’s personal/spiritual relationship with Christ
  • Etc.

And in living as though “God does not exist” (in principle) is really no different (in God’s eyes) than HATING HIM!

Therefore, in God’s eyes, lukewarm Christians hate him just as much as “defiant atheists” (those who are “defiant” towards him, that is) do, if not even more so!

For remember: the Lord’s wrath is TWICE upon a lukewarm believer in Him, rather than a nonbeliever! For his wrath starts within the house of God, which is the body/assembly of believers!

Therefore, rather a believer or nonbeliever, I leave  you with two questions:

  1. Do you hate God? If so, why?
  2. What does hating God DO for you, at the end of the day? As in, what true *eternal gains* do you get by doing so?

But again, I could preach and preach and preach at “defiant atheists” (those that are “defiant”, that is), and lukewarm Christians all day long. But at the end of the day, many of them will STILL refuse to change their ways. That’s not the Lord’s fault and it sure as heck ain’t MY fault! For these people are simply CHOOSING to defy Him, the Almighty God of creation!

Take apart the “theory” of Evolution and you’re left with nothing. What? It was just, poof! Now we’re here………all various forms of complex LIFE….out of THIN AIR?……..Wow……. Lets get real here, people! If Evolution were “true”, they would’ve found MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of inter-generational fossils BY NOW. Cause afterall, they’ve had MILLIONS of years of time FOR these “magic inter-generational fossils” to show up by now, have they not? But yet, they haven’t found a single one. NADA! And the one they DID claim to find? Ida — the mere skull of a LEMUR? It was later proven to be FAKE! (As was Piltdown Man!) Which can be evidenced here:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/controversial-ida-fossil-no-missing-link/

And HERE:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aso/databank/entries/do53pi.html

Now, there’s no doubt in my mind that some scientists or a group of scientists will ONCE AGAIN try to “fake evidence” for “Evolution” someday soon. The question is, are YOU (rather an atheist or Christian believer) going to buy it? I pray NOT! 

We can know from SEVERAL different ways that the bible is true! One is archaeological evidence. Two is fulfilled bible prophecy, 100% of the time. For no other religion ON EARTH can make that claim! For example, Joseph Smith (of the Mormons) had over 99 FAILED prophecies! 99! And that’s just the small tip of the iceberg! Islam has ZERO prophecies that were fulfilled during the times of the Old Testament! In fact, Islam didn’t even exist until well AFTER the times from the New Testament had already passed! Which should tell you something, folks! And other religions have “prophecies”, yes, but they’re all related to a future “false Messiah”, they have no “prophecies” that have ALREADY come to pass, the way that Messianic Christianity does! 

So the choice is up to YOU, folks! Evidence of God and his almighty power is ALL AROUND YOU! How much longer will you continue to deny Him? I pray not much longer! For we’re living in the times of The End and there’s not much more time before the skies part and the Earth trembles and Jesus Christ Almighty returns to Earth a 2nd time……with GREAT WRATH……against all those who denied HIM and openly defied him by not believing in Him and his divine words in the bible, by openly mocking Him, by following false religions that were not OF Him, etc.

He’s real, and you know he’s real, within the depths of your spirit! THINK, people! THINK! Search your heart. What is your gutt telling you? He’s calling out to you right now, people! Will YOU listen and heed onto his spiritual voice of Truth? I pray that you DO! For NOW is the time of Salvation and tomorrow’s not guaranteed! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!

REPENT of your sins! That means, give them up for good! Stop doing them! Pray for forgiveness of your sins in Jesus’s name! Get full-water baptized in the name of Jesus! Receive the free gifts of the Holy Spirit/the spirit of Truth, Salvation/Forgiveness of sins and Everlasting Life! Gifts that can ONLY be received in Jesus’s name and gifts that can ONLY be given when the seeker TRULY SEEKS THEM WITH A 100% REPENTANT HEART! 

How much longer will YOU continue to deny Him and to live your life as though he doesn’t exist? How much longer will YOU deny his calling out to you in your dreams and visions? How much longer will you try to EVER-SO-DESPERATELY falsely convince yourself he doesn’t exist, that he’s not real, that the bible’s not real, and that his Almighty Wrath & Eternal Judgement is not real?

If you don’t believe, PRAY TO BELIEVE! He will answer your prayer if you TRULY seek him and his existence, MARK MY WORDS!

Because deep, deep down, you KNOW he exists! Just like you KNOW there wouldn’t still be MILLIONS of believers in him if it had been proven he doesn’t exist! Just like you ALSO know there’s NO WAY that miracles could happen if he didn’t exist! Think about it! Truly think about it! How DO miracles happen, if it’s not by the case of Almighty God? Things that defy ALL scientific, physical, medical explanation. People that are within INCHES of death, escaping a tragedy with NO INJURIES……..How does that happen, folks? SEARCH YOUR HEARTS! 

He’s calling out to you right now AND HAS BEEN calling out to you FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, IN YOUR LIFE! Are YOU listening?!?! Will you HEED his call, before it’s too late and your fate is sealed for ETERNITY? He DESPERATELY wants to save you but he can’t save you, if you won’t let him! He’s crying tears of AGONY right now, over all those who refuse to get saved! For it’s not his will for ANY to perish! And as soon as the heavenly father gives him the OK, he’ll return with great wrath upon the Earth! And sadly, many people will CHOOSE to eternally condemn themselves in the flames by NOT heeding his call! Will YOU heed his call, before it’s too late? I pray SO! 

The New Testament: Trash or Treasure?

Many of us have had the green New Testaments passed out to us lots of times on college campuses, etc. And many of us were probably “annoyed” at the people attempting to pass them out and didn’t bother to read them. “Why bother to read it when I already know what’s in there?” or “Who cares?” are probably the sentiments that many of us felt, as we put it down somewhere to collect dust. But those of us who DID decide to read it, found a wealth of information in there, a guide to everyday life, and the ONLY way to get to Paradise/God’s Millennial Kingdom!

Almost every human emotion/life situation imaginable is “indexed” in the introductory pages, with bible passages that deal with each one. And not only that but it offers a much more intimate view of the “Jesus Christ” that the whole world’s been talking about, all throughout history. Don’t listen to how some preacher or televangelist talks about Jesus, get to know Jesus himself through his own words, written in the New Testament! The New Testament is the gospel of Jesus Christ and talks about the ONLY way to get to *eternal paradise*.

Maybe you didn’t know that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal life/eternal paradise or that all of those who *choose* not to believe in him are headed for an eternal punishment in the fire. Maybe you think a “good God” could never send someone to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the fire or that you don’t *need* or WANT God in your life. Maybe you’re on the fence right now about rather you believe in God or not. Or maybe you just don’t believe in A god or God, period. Well, no matter what your personal situation is in life right now, I would STRONGLY encourage you to read the New Testament, front to back, as soon as possible!

Maybe you threw out all your copies of the New Testament or don’t know or remember where you put it. Well, it’s time to take it back out and start reading it. The next time someone hands you a New Testament or you see one laying around, HANG ONTO IT FOR DEAR LIFE! Because trust me, if the ONLY thing standing between you and eternal punishment in the fire is a small *un-read* copy of the New Testament, you’d read it, wouldn’t you?

But you can’t just read the words of Jesus Christ. You must also BELIEVE them, in order to be saved….. And well, maybe you’re struggling with the idea of Jesus Christ (& consequently, Lazarus) being able to be resurrected from the dead by God. Or maybe you don’t believe Jesus Christ is an actual, real, historical person. Well, if you don’t believe in A god or God/Jesus Christ, NOW is the time to *pray to believe*.

There are SEVERAL ancient, historical NON-CHRISTIAN sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection, and consequent ascension to heaven. You can check them out at the following website:

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

There is not much time left.  If you’ve never read or heard about the book of Revelation in the New Testament, **NOW** is the time to read it. Revelation chapter 20 verse 15……

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:15 (New Testament, book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15)

And yes, it may seem somewhat cruel that God would send people to hell and/or eternal punishment in everlasting fire for not believing in Jesus Christ OR for freely choosing to REJECT Jesus Christ and his free gifts of Salvation/forgiveness of sins and Eternal Life/eternity with God someday in Paradise. However, it’s NOT Jesus’s fault if someone CHOOSES to reject him and go to eternal condemnation when they die. For WHILE they were still living, he gave them all the warning in the world, warning after warning after warning, and they JUST didn’t want to listen! So how is that Jesus’s fault?  Answer: it’s not. For those poor folks simply CHOSE to go there, to eternal condemnation, by rejecting the one and only begotten Son of God (Jesus Christ).

Jesus Christ was crucified for OUR sins, each and every single one of us!  So whomever believes in Jesus Christ, acknowledges their sins to Jesus Christ, prays for forgiveness of their sins, gets baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, repents (that means, give up) their sins, preaches about Jesus Christ/Salvation to others and continues to serve Jesus Christ until the day they die, Jesus Christ is going to say to/of that person: “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” [Matthew 25:23]

But whomever does NOT accept Jesus Christ’s free gift of Salvation, he will still give them many, many, MANY chances throughout their LIFETIMES (be it short or long) to *accept the gift*. [Which, by the way, we never know when we’re going to die. It could be 5 minutes from now or 50 years from now. Therefore, we NEVER truly know how much time left we have on this Earth!] But if they don’t accept the gift by the end of their life, (the gift that God worked so hard to give them to begin with), and don’t appreciate it, then God has “no choice” but to eternally punish that person, as he is a fair and just God.

And not only that but there will also be many “Christians” themselves who end up going to eternal condemnation because while living on the Earth, they proclaimed the name of Jesus Christ, but did NOT follow what he said in the bible. Of such “Christians”, the Lord Jesus will say “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:23]

The bible SAYS that all non-believers, if they do not accept Jesus Christ into their heart before they die, repent of their sins, pray for forgiveness of their sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, etc., will be sent to eternal punishment in everlasting fire. So God can’t undo what he says he will do. If he did, he wouldn’t be God. Think about it.

The New Testament (front to back), King James Version (the ORIGINAL King James Version, NOT the New King James Version! Why? Because the NIV, NLT, NASB & New King James Versions are BAD TRANSLATIONS that will mislead and misguide you as they have THOUSANDS of word changes in them, even going so far as to change the total CONTEXT of alot of words!)

Please. I beg of you FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY SOUL! If not for God & your eternal salvation, then read it for ME. Your very soul depends on it. MARK MY WORDS.

Can A Person Still Be A “Good Person” Without Believing in God?

Oftentimes in our own human vanity, we think we can still be a “good” person, without having to believe in God.

We believe we are a “good” person by our own standards.

But honestly. Have you ever lied? Stolen anything? Sexually lusted after someone? Had sex outside of marriage? Worshipped any other gods (including money, celebrities, political figures, etc.) other than Jesus Christ? Said the Lord’s name in vain? Wanted something that belonged to someone else? Over-ate? Got Angry with or held a grudge against someone? Refused to give to the poor? Flat-out denied the existence of God? Hated someone? Etc?

We may think we are a good person by our “own” standards but according to God’s Word, we are not a “good” person, according to God’s standards.

The truth is, nobody is perfect. Not me, not any preacher of God, not ANY prophets of God. Not one. Except God. God is the ONLY perfect thing in this entire universe. Why? Because he made it.

And since God is perfect and WE are not, God doesn’t need US but WE need HIM! And God loves us SO MUCH that over 2,000 years ago, he put himself into human form (Jesus Christ) by means of a virgin birth and gave mankind the potential for the greatest gift EVER (salvation/forgiveness of sins).

But it’s more like when we go to Hastings and they sometimes have a “get-your-fines-payed-off-for-free-day” or something like that. Well, if we don’t go there to receive our *gift* of not having to pay the fine, then we still have to pay the fine. So it is with God.

If we don’t go to Jesus Christ to ask for forgiveness of our sins (for we are ALL sinners, in God’s eyes), then how are we supposed to receive our *gifts* of a) forgiveness of sins and b) everlasting life? Just like we must GO to Hastings on that day to *receive* the gift of no fines, we must also GO to Jesus Christ to *receive* our *gifts* of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. All you have to do is start with this simple prayer and allow Jesus to come into your mind, heart and soul.

“Jesus, please make yourself real to me. I thank you for dying on the cross for me 1976+ years ago to save mankind from their sins. I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of salvation. The type of salvation that only YOU can give! I humbly ask you to please come into my heart today and become my Lord & Savior. Please forgive me for all my sins and help me to REPENT of them. Help me to live a life that’s pleasing to you. Help me to spread your gospel of Salvation to others. And please help me find a righteous Christian who can full-water baptize me in your holy name. Amen”

If you said those words with all your heart, and believe them to be 100% true, and have gotten baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, then congratulations! You are now saved and a part of God’s family! And if you are STILL not “saved” at this point, I would highly encourage you to GET SAVED, for the time is short. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

And remember….the people in hell today are there because they CHOSE to go there by rejecting Jesus Christ……They had many, many chances in their life to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ but instead, decided to live life their own way……now, they are paying DEARLY for it…….for ETERNITY……..please don’t become one of those people, folks! Please come to a saving knowledge of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved but he who does not believe will be condemned” [Mark 16:16]
