8: Your hand will find out all Your enemies: Your right hand will find out those that hate You. 9: You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger: The LORD will swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire will devour them. 10: Their fruit will You destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. – Psalm 21:8-10 KJV
The Lord God Almighty,the Christ, never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and for ever. There is no shadow of changing with Him. He desires to change us, but He never changes.
God is still angry at sin. That hasn't ever changed. Yes, we live in a time of grace – opportunity to stop sinning and turn to Jesus. Did you know? That is the express purpose of grace? It is. God grants us grace so that we might live to turn from our sins and walk in His ways.
If we refuse to repent and turn to God for salvation, grace does us no good. If we go on in our sins, God's grace will not save us. God's grace is His provision to us that we might turn, stop sinning, be born again, and be saved.
He who sins will die. The wages of sin are death. Do not be deceived, if a person says they love God and love people, but go on in their sins and so reject God's Word, the Bible says that person is a liar who the Truth is not in.
We live in a day when people have invented their own Jesus. This made up Jesus in the minds of people just accepts everyone the way they are, sins and all. This made up Jesus will never judge the earth. This made up Jesus does not preach, nor convict people of sin, nor does He put any expectations on people. This made up Jesus is quite a convenient God! He is all grace, no responsibility, no righteousness, no holiness, totally compromising, and fervently humanistic.
That Jesus, the one people make up in their minds, is not the God of the Bible. Jesus, the God of the Bible, is the only True and Living God. All other imaginations are futile and dead; they cannot save.
Jesus saves! Jesus sets us free from sin! Jesus judges every heart, every word, and every action! Jesus is love. Jesus is holiness. Jesus is righteousness. Jesus is God.
If you don't know the Jesus of the Bible, why don't you call out on Him today. One soon coming day, all people will call on His name, but not all will call out of love or joy or elation. Some will call out of absolute terror. Some will call out of dread. Many will think they have known Him, but have not. Every knee will bow before the Lord God Almighty, Jesus the Christ. Every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord God. But not every one will be saved.
Today is the day of salvation. Right now is the time that Jesus is reaching out to you. He wants you to know Him in His Holy Spirit and in His Truth. He is the Truth, the Way, and Eternal Life. Jesus is calling your name.
Jesus is coming back very soon.
What are you going to do?
