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”
