COMING CHAOS

It would be wise to heed the message of God concerning the future.

Most people are not happy with the current ‘progress’ that has taken place in Barbados …. exorbitant prices, long lines of traffic, potholes, sewage, armed robberies and a host of other problems facing the country.

But only a few understand ‘why’ global conditions are getting worse….. and why human society will continue to decline.

Amid all the strident calls for tolerance, cooperation and harmony…. the unprecedented explosion of EVIL has gone largely unnoticed and unchallenged.

You cannot watch any entertainment these days without expletives, violence and sexual content….. even the children’s cartoons are full of rebellion and wickedness…… everybody has become desensitized to it and for sure it has affected peoples attitudes and interaction with others and very definitely their relationship to God.

Christ’s call to His disciples was for holiness in living and the meaning of this is to be ‘set apart’ …. ‘love not the world or the things in the world’ (1 John 2:15 – 17) ….. do you see evidence of churches following this exhortation ? …. and if the churches are loving the world and everything to do with the world, what about the rest of humanity …. ‘the bulk of good people’ according to one lady who remarked in amazement …. ‘you mean to tell me that all these “good” people are going to damnation and destruction ?’ …. she was even more shocked when I replied, ‘Yes, that’s exactly what I am telling you’…. but it’s not me, that what God has said….. she did not want anything to do with ‘a god’ that would send all these ‘nice people’ to some kind of ‘hell’ ….. and she simply refused to ‘believe’ that it was the TRUTH.

Maybe this is why Christ said in response to the question… ‘are there few that be saved ?’…… Jesus said ‘Strive to enter in at the narrow gate; for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.’ (Luke 13:23 – 24)

But why would God destroy the bulk of His creation which He loves ?

May I remind you that it would not be the first time ? ….. only Noah and his family were saved from the first destruction….. and only those saints who have ‘washed themselves in the blood of the Lamb’ will escape the coming destruction.

Whether you like it or not….. the sanctification of the chosen seed is what is most important to the Father….. the rest may be ‘good people’ in the eyes of other humans…. but they have REJECTED the ‘salvation of God’ which He has freely made available to all…. and gone about to establish their own standard of righteousness. (Romans 10:3)

Don’t let that be you….. today is a good day to change your eternal destiny…. by confessing your sinfulness and inability to overcome sin, inviting Jesus Christ into your heart and life…. and then TRUSTING through His Holy Spirit that He will accomplish in you what is necessary as you CONTINUE to meditate on God’s Word, the Bible, and get to know Him more intimately through prayer.

Messiah

The attitude of Jesus Christ towards all men today is:

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if ANY MAN hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20)

Jesus Christ (the same one, whose name men use as a curse word) IS the Judge of all the human race (John 5:22 – 29).

Many today teach that because He is LOVE, He will “excuse” their sin…. but the Bible does NOT teach this ! …. these people do not know Christ, nor do they really love Him…. they are just “banking” on a “hope” that because He is so loving they will “escape” (i.e. “get away”) with their sinful behavior and “everything will come out OK in the end”.

TRUE LOVE for Christ and what He has done for the human race…. leads to sorrow for sin, repentance and “whole hearted” desire for CHANGE… and it is these people who can be filled with the Spirit of God (i.e “born again”).

Make no mistake…. although Christ is LOVE…. He WILL send people to EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT (and this is not a topic that is “popular” with churches today…. people dont want to hear about this…. they DESPERATELY WANT a “feel good” church where they can clap and sing and then go out and live their lives the way THEY want to live…… believing that they are “good” Christians and everything promised in the Bible will be theirs) …… Oh.. OH…. what a LIE…. what a serious SELF-DECEPTION….. what SHOCK will be in store for these people later on…. when they discover that they are NOT of Christ’s flock at all !

TODAY, if you will hear His voice…. HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS…  as in the provocation (Hebrews 3:15)

and what was this provocation ? ….. simply this….

Read Numbers 14:28 – 35

and then remember that these were the SAME people from Exodus 19:8

TODAY…. my message to you is do not PRESUME on Jesus….. REPENT of your sin… seek forgiveness…. and allow God’s Holy Spirit  to direct your life….. you HAVE to be a “living sacrifice”…. read Romans 12:1 and then Matthew 16:24-27, Mark 8:34-38 and Luke 9:23-26… and consider your own life, in light of Matthew 10:37-39 …… you CANNOT “have your cake and eat it too”…..  which means, “live this life to suit yourself, while expecting that a visit to some church once a week is all that is required to escape judgement of your sin and secure a “good” eternal destiny”
