Dear friend, this article is not about your catholic faith or your being a protestant or gay. This article is all about one question to you, who would you rather trust your life with? Do you want to believe “This GOD”, the God that says He created you, loves you so much that by accepting to allow His Christ to die on the cross, we all now have a chance to be called His sons and daughters, or will you rather believe a scientist?
And when it comes to matters of your faith (without us discussing them now), will you rather trust your bible or the ‘translation’ and ‘explanation’ taught to you. And the stakes are very high.
2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
So we all know of course that judgement is coming. Nearly every faith of the world believes a day is coming when we shall all face judgement. Let us focus on that alone. Judgement is coming. You probably have been a christian all your life and you probably have read if not the entire, then a good portion of the Bible.
I then assume you have read several verses about religious life before and after Christ. From creation and the beauty or Eden to the horrors of Sodom. Am sure you have in a moment thought what it must have been for Moses to be met with a burning bush or the thrill of walking across the sea bed.
I have for one thought how courageous Daniel and his friends were in the furnace. And the cold chilly night that Christ was arrested. The look of utter betrayal when he heard the third crow must have been heart breaking for Peter.
But when we speak of judgement, we speak of a day when Christ comes to “DELIVER’ the verdict. It will not be a seating and people seek for a lawyer, no.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
See, The Bible does not speak of a lengthy trial in Court. No. That is happening today. Every second you live, every single act, word, statement is recorded. And we all can repent of these sins.
1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
This is the time we have to seek our Lawyer Christ.
Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
At the moment of your death, your judgement is sealed. So the bigger question is, what LAW is God using today?
Psalm 119:137 Righteous are You, O LORD, And upright are Your judgments.
Deuteronomy 32:4 “The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.
Psalm 7:11 God is a righteous judge, And a God who has indignation every day.
The only thing we address here is the law. Not the interpretation thereof, but whose.
Psalm 145:8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
So again we see another picture of God. Yes God is righteous and He is so super patient that we all repent, but still there are those who won’t. So God wills (wishes) that NOT everybody perishes but ALL should come to repentance.
And you know why?
1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
The time of judgement is here. If God will judge His very own Church (NOT Churches), if God will let HIS OWN SON TO DIE, why do you think God will be merciful to the Muslim that denies Christ? Or the Indian that bows to a cow? If God watched man kill HIS OWN SON, why do you think God will be so forgiving?
2Co 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
The fact that you are alive means whether you like it or not, you will face judgment. That is something you cannot will, buy nor influence yourself out of unless;
Joh 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
So unless you believe in Christ, you have no Chance of passing Judgement or surviving the second death.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Are you with me so far? Judgement is coming and between you and judgement the only solution you have is Christ. But this judgement is based on the LAW.
Jas 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
Joshua 1:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Mal 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
Psa 33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
Now we see that there will be judgement for us all, on the SAME day, using the SAME LAW.
Christ is only coming to deliver the judgement… sort of to read it out and those who are found NOT guilty will go back with Christ and those FOUND GUILTY, well Revelation 18-20 might prove a worthy read.
So friend, it is your call….do you want to risk your eternal destiny with that Pastor that says it is ok to go to Church on Sunday or do you want to read the Bible and confirm? Do you want to risk your eternal destiny with a lawyer, and believe when he says God will today support gay marriage or do you want to read the Bible first? Because in every imaginable thing, there is a LAW that covers it clearly.
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Even Christ gave us a disclaimer….when He taught us how to better understand the commandments He warned that that should not imply the LAW has changed. Back then, and today, people used to take a very literal interpretation of the law. For instance a donkey falls in a pit on Sabbath, the man would have let it there. So Christ was explaining how the law was made to make our lives better, to be better friends, neighbors and a better community.
And in so explaining, people would have thought Christ gave them the OK to go ahead and ‘bend’ some LAWS. But this disclaimer proves different. And He goes on to say,
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
So the VERY SAME LAW that was written by the finger of GOD and given to Moses, that very LAW has never changed and WILL NEVER change according to Christ.
Our High Priest, Our Advocate says “The LAW has NEVER and WILL NEVER Change”. And unless you friend, your righteousness exceeds that of your pastor, you shall NOT enter the Kingdom of God. I used pastor because they are the teachers of the law today-shame, they stopped teaching the law though.
And you know what will happen when Christ comes right? The Bible says those of us alive in Christ, our bodies would be transformed, those dead in Christ will resurrect and we will be caught up with Christ in the air. Unlike Elijah who caught a Chariot, we will get the honor of getting a personal tour of the creation work of God from Christ Himself. (I Corinthians 15:52-57 Revelation 20:4)
We would tour the different worlds (planets) probably slide past the Satellites and the Space Stations with Christ and ascend with Him to Heaven. A place where NO man’s imagination has ever come close to what it is. And for 1000 years heaven will be our home.
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Now friend, that is the truth, and NO ONE can change it. We cannot bend it, postpone it nor avoid it. It does not matter what your pastor will teach or what the pope will say.
Truth is independent of opinion. By its very definition, Truth is intolerant of error, every aspect petitioning the conscience for acknowledgement. The individual however, holds the key to admission or rejection.—-Heavy on the Heart.
The LAW are the 10 commandments that GOD took time out of HIS super tight schedule to write down. It is the very same one in the very same bible you carry to church yet your pastor denies it. The Catholic Church has already said that the changes to Christianity were made by her authority not that of GOD. In essence, that should for one stop you from going to church on a Sunday.
But who am I to say? The question is, when Christ is giving you FREE legal representation, when God has broken every barrier between you and your salvation, that just as you are you can be a son or daughter of God by belief in Christ, that it will not cost you anything, and you do not need a Mary, nor Joseph, nor Pope, nor Pastor to be saved, all you need is to accept Christ, why would you trust your life in how man has falsely interpreted the bible?
Why would you believe man who tells you today it is ok to be gay and reject God that says it will NEVER be ok to be gay? Why would you believe a pastor that tells you Sunday is more important and right at the center of the law, God actually says REMEMBER to keep the Sabbath Holy? (Exodus 20:8)
Why would you believe the Pope that today tells you that we all worship the same God and yet you have a Bible with a Law that forbids worshiping more than one God? Why would you believe the word of a man when discussing the law written by God? And why would you believe in the explanation of such serious matters from a man when that man cannot even defend you in court?
The law of God will stand. The law on the Sabbath, the law on sexuality, the law on idolatry the law on how we relate with other people. That law Christ says will NEVER change. So whether you agree with me here or not is immaterial to your fate on judgement, my question is, would you rather be right with the God or right with man? Would you take the word of the lawmaker or the interpretation of a sinful man?
