The Last Day...Coming Soon

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:35-40

There will indeed be those who will try to say they've never seen Jesus.  To which, I would gather, Jesus will prove them wrong and show them where they missed it.  All will have seen Jesus in the lives of Believers in some way, shape or form.  All will be without excuse.

The cool part is where Jesus says "all that the Father gives me will come to me". Think about that!  All who the Father knows that will say yes to Christ's Salvation, will be saved. Everyone who comes to Christ will never be turned away.

If that wasn't enough, Jesus's next words.  "I will certainly not cast out".  In Revelation many millions will be cast out. To the lake of fire. No Purgatory.  No torment in Hell. The very location of Hell will be cast into the Lake of Fire.  Whatever torment was in Hell will be a whole lot worse in the Lake of Fire.

Jesus says further that the Will of the Father is that He loses nobody. On the last day, all who are in Christ are raised to eternal life in Christ.  In His presence we will be safe forever.

I have, and many others have, said this before.  Choose today.  Right here, right now.  Where will you spend eternity?
Either choose life in Jesus Christ or choose a life apart from God that ends in the Lake of Fire. There are only two choices.

Your own 'good deeds' are not enough to save you.  Scripture says that those are but filthy rags.  Worthless.  Means nothing.  To further that point, many will say to Jesus didn't we do...didn't we say... He says to depart from Him, for You never knew Him.  Without Salvation in Jesus Christ alone, your good deeds mean nothing.  Without a right relationship with Jesus it means nothing.

You cannot go through life doing your own thing and expect God to say 'Oh, you weren't so bad after all, come on in.' Not when the dire circumstances of sin were and are so bad that the only cure for it was His own Son needing to have all the sins of mankind heaped upon Him on a cross to pay that price !!!  God's own Son had to DIE to pay the price for sin. Which means there IS NO OTHER WAY TO SALVATION!  NONE!  By coming back from the dead, Jesus proved who He was. God the Father said of Him, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him!"

What is your life worth?

Is your success or possessions worth more to you than your soul?

Is the anger you hold onto towards God worth it to you? 

Is the anger you hold onto towards your fellow man worth it?

You take the poison pill and sit there hoping the other person dies?

When you were born the poison of sin was already in your system.  It takes a cure of an all out blood transfusion to cure it.  The blood of Jesus Christ.

No other means can cure sin. But you need to acknowledge it as it being sin.

You have to come to grips with your need for a cure. Then you need to seek out what can cure you.  The only cure is Jesus.

Not Allah, not Buddha.  Not anything but Jesus.

Allah didn't create this Universe.
Buddha is dead. Mohammed is dead.
Both are in Hell.  No Jesus, no Heaven.

But realizing the truth.  Coming to Christ is as simple as asking.  No hoops. No hidden clauses.  No hidden agenda.  No set of rules to go through. 

Come as a child. 



Jesus says that all who come to Him, by no means will He cast away.

Noah preached the same message until Christ Jesus told them to get into the Ark and then He closed the door.  Every day the sermon was on repentance and turning away from sin and turning to God.

For several hundred years it was the same.   Nobody believed him.

Nobody was saved but Noah, his wife. His sons and their wives. 

This time through the offer is the same.

The door is open.

All who hear have the chance to be saved.

The life preserver has been tossed out to you.  Will you let go of what's holding you back and grab ahold and be saved?

Soon that door will be closed.  Soon there will be a great call of God and the dead in Christ will rise first.  Those who are still alive will join Him in the air.  It's coming.

Then those who refuse will still be here. Read Revelation.  The judgment to come in the following 7 years will be horrific.
Turn away from your sinful life, turn to Jesus today.  Don't wait.
