Eternity, No Excuses Accepted!
No excuses! After our short life on this earth then comes eternity. Are you ready and what logic will you use to be in heaven versus the alternative? The Bible says that some day each of us will stand in front of Jesus and hear about where we will spend eternity. Will we hear; ‘Well Done’, or ‘Depart from Me, or I never knew you’, or….
Mat 7:22, 23 “Many will say to Me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name,
and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.”
Unlike our society, there will be no excuses accepted on the final judgment day that ushers in eternity. We are all without excuse. We must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ by accepting His sacrifice for our unworthiness called sin before it is too late. That is the only basis or sacrifice that is acceptable to God obtaining eternal life in heaven with God in the new heaven and earth that He will create (Revelation 20). Without believing we are doomed to eternity separated from God (2 Thessalonians 1:8,9, John 5:24).
Don’t be like this group………
Rom 1:18-21” For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of mankind, who hold the truth in unrighteousness. Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has shown it unto them. For the
invisible things since the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. because that, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither gave thanks; but became
vain in their reasoning’s, and their senseless heart was darkened.”
By ourselves, by our deeds, by our Church affiliation, or by family heritage, we cannot find Eternal Life with God, because;
Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
Ephes. 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
You must be ‘Born Again’! Have you been?
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘For truly I say unto you, except you are born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God’.
How does your eternity look this morning and how about that person sitting or living next door to you?
