Which are You?
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate them one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. “‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger and you took me in; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me; I was in prison and you visited me.’“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or without clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick, or in prison, and visit you? ’ “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’“Then he will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels! For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink; I was a stranger and you didn’t take me in; I was naked and you didn’t clothe me, sick and in prison and you didn’t take care of me.’“Then they too will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or without clothes, or sick, or in prison, and not help you? ’ “Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’“And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:31-46 CSV
My Dear Reader, which will you be? Which side will you be on? These are the words, straight from Jesus.
You indeed have the opportunity this very moment to decide which you will be. You may not have a tomorrow. People are dying every second who thought they had more time. I still hear the voice of someone I used to work with. Her offhandedly saying "Oh God" at a situation. I do not believe she was saved. I do not think she gave her life to Christ. Right now she probably is crying out with all that's within her those same words only in truly begging for mercy while in Hell. There are no Atheists in Hell. Just as true is you will not find demons in Hell. You also will not find Satan there either. He isn't some red, horned individual. He disguises himself as an angel of light. Meaning he tries to look like one of God's angels.
Jesus said Satan is a liar and the father of lies. His aim is the Throne of God. He cares not who all he takes down with himself. He strives to deceive as many as he can. To twist and distort the Word of God.
People everywhere have enough evidence, if they look for it, to receive the free gift of Salvation in Christ. Those who reject it will indeed be among the goats mentioned here. Once Christ returns its game over. There's no second chances.
Know today my friend which you are. Don't give it another minute. You may not have it. Scripture says His return will be in the twinkling of an eye. That instantaneous. Are you really wanting to risk it?
