How can we keep living without God?
With all that has transpired in 2011, and indeed in the years prior, one thing ought to have become quite clear: the end of the age is near, all of which will culminate in the return of Jesus Christ.
True, the population globally consists of people varying in race and religious beliefs, but with regard to accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour, it can undoubtedly be categorized as genuine Christians, professed Christians and unbelievers or atheists.
As Christians, we must first put away all forms of prejudice and do all we can to win the lost, bearing in mind Satan’s unrelenting agenda to be a hindrance. It’s not enough to be believers only, we must aim to be followers of Christ in a practical manner and daily feed upon the scriptures.
We’re the Bride of Christ expected to reflect the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) to a fallen world but instead some among us portray the opposite. Further, we’re told to shun the appearances of evil in our lives, yet often it’s rather endorsed whether verbally or by blatant association.
Being saved doesn’t mean we’re perfect, for we’re still in the flesh; but eventually, according to God’s divine plan for us, our lives will forever be without sin when our mortal bodies become transformed from corruptible to incorruptible.
Sadly, the validity of the Rapture of the Church is consistently questioned despite biblical evidence too numerous to mention here. To such sceptics it should at once come to mind that throughout generation, God has never punished the righteous with the wicked in judgment as is proven by those saved versus those who’ve perished in the Flood and destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Let there not be scepticism concerning the existence of demons within the Body of Christ, for the fact that while on earth Jesus spoke directly to them when commanding them out of those possessed should be adequate proof for the “believer” and dispel any doubt whatsoever. (Mark 5:1-13)
Lastly to unbelievers or atheists, the complexity of everything in our world couldn’t exist without the presence of intelligence. Beware of deceptive philosophical theories circulating and those who go the extra mile to present what may appear to be “tangible” evidence but in fact is nothing but yet another device to bring about mass confusion.
The origin of the Earth and life upon it cannot but be attributed to a supernatural, highly intelligent loving Creator, despite man’s efforts to prove the contrary. Meanwhile, time is running out; it’s the year 2012.
Christ died for your sins and rose again for your justification. The door to Salvation through Jesus Christ’s atoning work on Calvary’s cross is open: don’t wait, go through it!
Admittedly world events and daily commitments can be distractions; hence the imperativeness to make this decision for Christ now! No pilot will willingly choose to fly his plane without communicating with the air traffic controller; yet man sees wisdom in going through life without the Almighty.
