Unbelief Doesn’t Make it Untrue
Unbelief Doesn't Make it Untrue
Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. LUKE 21:28
In 1949, the magazine Popular Science predicted, “Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.” In 1977, Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, said, “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” Bill Gates said in 1981, “640K ought to be enough for anybody.” Making predictions is risky business—unless you are God! According to John Wesley White, the coming again of Christ and the end of the age occupies some 1,845 scriptural verses, and each one offers sure and certain hope for the Christian. Just consider these promises: “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:3). “Behold, I am coming quickly!” (Revelation 22:7). Vance Havner said, “We are not just looking for something to happen; we are looking for Someone to come! And when these things begin to come to pass, we are not to drop our heads in discouragement or shake our heads in despair, but rather lift up our heads in delight.” - Dr. David Jeremiah Morning and Evening
This world is full of people of all kinds of religions. From Atheism to those who worship spaghetti.
Simply put concerning the Word of God, salvation and the return of Christ, just because you, my Dear Reader, do not yet believe it all to be true, it doesn’t mean that it isn't true.
Long before other religions took shape, the Bible already existed. In it many a scientist looked first some 80 to 90 years ago. Many colleges and universities were founded on Biblical principles. This was before God was expelled from those institutions. Not because of inaccuracies but because of Satan's attacks.
I can only imagine that the Spiritual shout that begins the final chapter of humanity will be similar to the shout that Jesus used to bring Lazarus back from the dead.
The cry of the Archangel will likely be in excitement. Something akin to "Yesss!!!".
We live in a world full of diverse cultures and peoples. It is as broad as it is wide.
Look to the early Church. God used supernatural means to speak the in the tongues of all who were nearby. Every person heard the good news of the Gospel in their own language.
The call of Christ Jesus will likely be something like "Come forth!" or "Come home!".
Whether or not you believe this truth doesn't change the facts.
Nature clearly shows the truth about the genders of all the species God created yet people still insist on creating lies about them. Creating deviations from what God created and intended. This doesn't at all prove that God messed up or that evolution is true. It proves the Scriptures that mankind is perverting the truth of God.
All who live must choose between believing in God's message about salvation or rejecting it.
There are eternal consequences to rejecting salvation in Christ Jesus alone.
The first stop after dying without Christ is Hell. I firmly believe that if it's indeed Jesus who brings those who believe to Heaven that He also brings those who rejected Him to Hell.
He personally died for every single person who ever lived. He would not delegate that to another.
In Hell, people are in pain and suffering. They are in torment. This is a spiritual pain and suffering. Their physical body is not yet rejoined with them yet. You can look on the internet and find stories and videos of the last moments of people before they died. You can hear of people crying out in pain as they slip into Hell as they remain defiant against God.
The time will come, first, for the dead in Christ to rise first. Then those who are alive and remain in this physical world who are saved will leave here, body and soul. Those who were dead in Christ will regain their physical body but that body will now be perfect.
At the Final Judgment, after the 7 year Tribulation, after the Thousand Year reign of Christ here on Earth, those who were in Hell come before Christ in a perfect body, rejoined with their Spirit. They then are sentenced to the Lake of Fire. The pain and torment is now worse than ever before.
Whether or not you choose to acknowledge it, it doesn't change the truth.
As one line from a movie once said: "Have you seen a million dollars?"
"No," was the reply.
"Just because you haven't seen it, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist."
No matter how hard mankind tries to create some way to live longer or to gain entry into a grand afterlife, they will fail. The created cannot dictate to the Creator on just how things are going to be.
You have before you two doors.
A single decision that has two distinct outcomes.
You my Friend can choose to believe the God of the Bible or the god of this world.
To not believe in God, to reject the salvation offered, is to side with the god of this world.
It literally is if you aren't for Christ and for His salvation to save you, you are against Christ.
You can stop breathing at any instant. You do not control that. God does. You can believe that you control your life, your destiny as it were. No, you are being guided towards the reality of your existence. That you must choose to either come to Christ or to reject Jesus and pay for your sins.
You choose your destination by what you decide about Jesus.
There are no second chances.
There are no doubters in Hell. Regardless of religious background, all of the world's religions are represented in Hell. Yet all are proven by the Word and power of God to have been a lie.
Everyone who is there do not want anyone else to join them.
You don't have to join them. You can easily avoid that today by coming to Jesus Christ to be saved. You found this blog, search online for the Romans Road to Salvation.
You can only open 1 door to your future. One leads to Heaven and Jesus Christ, the other leads to the things you read outlined today. Choose wisely.
