Perilous Times

March 12, 2018

We are living in perilous times. People don’t respect people or God. There’s no fear of God or Hell. Evil has taken over good; and wrong over right. Every time we pick up the paper, turn on the television or radio’s, we hear and read of more evil news. God will not allow His children to be trodden upon forever. “It is better that a millstone be hanged about his neck and he be drowned in the depth of the sea than to offend one that believes in Me.” We serve a Living God that sits high but look low. We will have to give in account of every evil deed and spoken word.

With all the evil taking place, it appears, some church leaders are preaching the goodness of God but not the wrath of God. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.” (Roman 6:23) We are failing to preach or teach what God requires or expect. We must preach and teach repentance and love. When we fail to repent or turn, we will suffer the wrath of God. God is patient and giving us time to repent. What are we doing with that time? We must not be envious of those that seem to prosper right now; it’s only for a short time before God cut them down like the green grass.

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” (Psalm 37:1-3)

One day, every wrong will be made right. Everything covered will be uncovered. Every wrong act will be brought before a Righteous Judge. We will reap what we sow and God has no respect of person. “Therefore thou are inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemn thyself, for thou that judgest does the same things. And think thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and does the same, that thou shall escape the judgment of God?” Romans 2:1,3)

If our wicked actions cause us to gain the whole world and loose our souls, what did we profit? Whatever we gained illegal, will not profit us anything. When the death angel closed our eye lids, we can’t see, touch or feel anything. If the money, deeds, jewelry or tangible things was placed in our coffins, we can not see, touch or feel them. Life is so short and we should not let anything separate us from the love of Christ. Time is out for playing and gambling with our souls. Get right church and family; and let’s go home. There’s a train leaving the station. Do you have your ticket? Set our affections on things above and not on things on this earth. Why stress, worry and gamble with earthly things when Jesus has already prepared a mansion for us?
