The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Lost Or Saved?

The Eternal Lake of Fire

Which one are you?
Would it surprise you to know that there are only, from God's perspective, two types of people in this world: saved and lost. Which one are you?
If you are lost:
If you are lost tonight, you are headed for the Devil's Hell with the chance of you getting out firmly set at zero. But God has given you a wonderful gift. You don't have to go there, it's your choice.
If you take that Gift, I can promise you on the full strength and power of God's preserved word that you spend eternity with Him in a Heaven. God is not a liar and He guarantees that if you genuinely accept his son Yeshua Hamashiach/Jesus Christ with all your heart that you will go to heaven when you die. It is the best gift I could ever give you, it is better than the finest mansion or a Rolls Royce.   It is so mind-blowingly amazing trying to describe it in mere human words could never and would never do it justice.
The lost people on the Titanic never dreamed it would be their last night on Earth
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Oh, I've heard that a thousand times before. But guess what? It’s the only thing that will save your eternal soul. There is nothing else, no "Plan B". It’s Jesus, His shed blood and death on the cross and His rising again on the third day. See? Here's proof:
"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7:25
God's blood, shed for you....will you accept it or reject it?
Trust Him, and you will spend eternity thanking Jesus. It will be the very best decision you could ever make, one that will pay dividends for all eternity. Do it now, don't wait a single second more. You are not promised tomorrow, you are not even promised till the end of the time it takes you to read this article.
If you are saved:
If you have already trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as YOUR Saviour, then your eternity is set firm. The bible says that you are saved and SEALED until the day of redemption. Look and see for yourself:
"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory." Ephesians 1:13,14
Eternally secure! How awesome is that, right? No a worry or care in the world...well...except maybe one. How will you do at the Judgment Seat of Christ? Did you even know that there will be a review of your works for the Lord Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ? This is not for salvation, your salvation once received is eternally set. This is a review of the works that the Lord gave you to do AFTER you got saved.
This is what you need to know:
"For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifestfor the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire." 1 Corinthians 3:9,11-15
No matter how big your problems seem to you right now, and I am sure that there are many reading this who have pressing issues and lots of worry, let us assure you that one day the things and cares of this life will all be gone. In an instant. And you will find yourself standing before the One who redeemed you, Jesus Christ.
Only ONE life, twill SOON be past...and ONLY what's done for CHRIST will last.
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13,14
There is still time to get something done for Jesus, still time to add gold, silver and precious stones to your account. Get your eyes off of the temporary and on to the eternal weight of glory. Have you been saved, have you been redeemed? Then take the gifts and talents that the Lord has given you for His glory, and use them now while time remains.
