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 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 know...you'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
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
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 manifest: for 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.
