GIVING GIFTS

God has given us redemption as a free gift…… it cost a lot, the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.

Three responses are:

1. Ignore it altogether …. with optional behavior, possibly involving mockery or blasphemy.

2. Accept it and continue merrily along doing your own thing.

3. Accept it and reciprocate, by giving of ourselves back to God.

Only the last option produces change in people’s lives and prepares them to meet God.

People fail to understand that the rule of God is theocratic and not democratic, and even though they have free will, they will be judged for how they use it.

The world simply cannot understand that God’s love demands a response….. and continual rebellion must eventually be dealt with.

In order for the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ on earth to take place ….. rebellion must be put down…. those who refuse the Lordship of Christ (and that constitutes the bulk of humanity) are going to be JUDGED.

Whether the “love” gospel brings you to true humility and devotion to Christ ….. or whether it’s the “fear” of God that accomplishes the same end.

The TRUTH is God is very displeased with the current state of the world and human affairs…. but He is allowing the evil to get worse and worse.

When he finally puts a dramatic stop to it all…… millions are going to suffer and die and their spirits put in torment.

It’s better that you take heed to the Word while there is still time.

What’s the point of persisting in your outright rebellion against God ? You are only bringing misery on yourself…. and it makes no sense…… REPENT today…. while there is still time.

You will find that God is faithful and true and you will be blessed and not cursed of Him.

It boggles the mind how “gay couples” can possibly think that God approves of such behavior.

The only logical explanation is that their minds have been deceived by powerful evil spirits because they know not the true God at all.

Really only three types…… deceived people worshiping a “false” image of the true God …….. openly rebellious people following their own will and acknowledging no god whatsoever….. and some people openly worshiping the Devil and following evil intentionally.

I can testify that God has blessed me for following His way even when I did not want to….. I did it out of RESPECT for God …. who He IS.

Th Bible says that the FEAR of God is the beginning of wisdom…. we may not always “feel like” we wish to follow the commandments of God…. but we must do so anyway, because is in OUR ultimate best interest to do so.

We are not robots….. we must use that same “free will” that causes people to sin ….. to force ourselves to do righteousness on occasion.

There are only TWO possible paths….. God’s way …. and the way of evil….
you cannot invent a third, “my way” because “your way” will ultimately prove to be evil also.

Frank Sinatra’s song “I did it my way”….. is actually promoting SELFISHNESS, PRIDE and REBELLION….. and that’s exactly what Satan did….. He proclaimed he would do things “his way” in direct opposition to what God had decreed…. that is the very essence of sin itself….. that’s where it all starts.

You have a choice to make….. either continue in your rebellion against the True and Holy and Righteous God……

or HUMBLY beg His forgiveness and TRUST Christ to enable you to change and then get up and OBEY God.

Trust and Obey…. for there is no other way…. to escape the judgement and have the favor and blessings of the Almighty.
