• “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 to give to charity more”
  • “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 all the “temporal fame, pleasure and wealth” will not save them from their sins, for ONLY Jesus Christ can save them for the sins! A person without Jesus is a “lost soul”……..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 but even many “Christians” themselves these days) think they don’t NEED Jesus, in order to be able to ETERNALLY SURVIVE! But those folks are VERY SADLY MISTAKEN! In fact, EVEN 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 parents (in general) are constantly watching over them, to make sure they’re not doing anything wrong and (if Christian/Judeo-Christian) 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 CAN DO IT, MYSELF! I DON’T NEED YOUR *CORRECTIONS/SUPERVISION!*”

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!

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

But when it comes to defying Jesus/his creation, one thing is certain…….He doesn’t like 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 than God. Yet, Jesus keeps trying to spiritually warn them OVER AND OVER AGAIN (even as “gently” and “patiently” as he can, AMIDST His Divine Wrath)……….

In fact, Jesus sends MANY of his “Messengers” to try to warn these secular doctors and scientists that they really DON’T know the long-term implications of DNA-editing. In fact, there was a VERY specific reason why Jesus created DNA in a specific pattern & a specific way.

And folks, we’ve discovered what happened last time when Satan and his demons (fallen angels) tried to “pervert God’s natural DNA”. The children of the nephilim came about. So do we REALLY want to see — the long-term implications — of what happens when the natural human race starts “getting tampered with” in the modern day? 

But yet, many of the genetic scientists, in their “gusto” for “the next best thing, genetically speaking”, sadly, don’t seem to be listening to the Lord’s witnesses or even REALIZING what the long-term implications may be (as a whole). Yet, a very small number of them ARE likely *secretly* troubled for the possible long-term implications of DNA-tampering…….most of them probably won’t come out and say it. And their views would likely not ever get broadcast on the mainstream news. But I’m willing to bet they’re out there somewhere (no matter how small in number they may be). 

And many of these “somewhat hesitant” scientists likely 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 choose 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, might possibly start rethinking their position in the whole genetics field and consider “quitting” genetics, altogether [though I pray that they don’t. Because they are FAR more valuable to the genetic PROVING of creationism than they realize!]  

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. 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 ANY 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? How UTTERLY TERRIFYING of a thing it would be to fall into the Eternal Hands of Judgement by the Everlasting God of Creation! 

[[NOTE: 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!!!!!!!!!!!) 

JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE DESPERATELY WANTS TO SAVE YOU FROM A LIFE OF SIN AND INNER RESTLESSNESS/DESPAIR BUT HE CAN’T DO THAT IF YOU WON’T LET HIM! And it’s ok if you don’t believe in Him right now, JUST PRAY TO BELIEVE but mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and mind! Just pray the following:

“Jesus, I’m not sure if I believe in you or not. I’ve heard about you from others but have never truly experienced your presence for myself. Just like I’ve heard things from the bible before that seem sort’ve far-fetched today, in today’s world and culture. Please open up my heart, soul and mind, and show me the evidences of these things, and of YOU. I come to you with an open heart and a open mind. It’s not that I DON’T want to believe, per say, I’m just struggling with belief in you/the bible right now. So please show me these things. Please allow me to experience the peace and joy of your presence. Please give me a “new” heart, and a new mind. I want to believe, please help me overcome my unbelief”. 

Mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and mind and he WILL answer your prayer, MARK MY WORDS! (Provided you seek him in prayer WHOLE-HEARTEDLY and not half-heartedly). Cause lets face it, if someone says to you: “Hey, you’re so awesome” but you sense they’re saying it half-heartedly, you’re not gonna feel that they’re being genuine in their “praise” of you, right? But if a person comes to you and says: “Hey, you’re so awesome because x, y, and z”, and gives you details as to WHY they think you’re awesome, then it seems more genuine, right? 🙂 So it is with Jesus! He will honestly and truly reveal himself to you IF you truly, genuinely seek him, MARK MY WORDS! 😉
