Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. (John7:24)
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:4)
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: (Romans 2:5-6)
DR.BOB JONES, SR. (1883-1968), FOUNDER OF BOB JONES UNIVERSITY was famous for his constant urging of his students: “Do right ‘till the stars fall!” I was privileged to hear him preach for a week, in the latter years of his life, when he came to Tennessee Temple Schools for Bible Conference. He was also known for his statement, “Dr. Bob, have you never been tempted to divorce your wife? No. I’ve been tempted to choke her to death a few times but never tempted to divorce her.”
I WAS SAVED AT AGE NINE AND NOW I'M 84. America is rotting on the vine! Our nation is determined to destroy itself. It started with the poisoning of our education system at all levels in embracing the big lie of evolution. The arguments and proof for evolution are NOT strong. There is no proof of evolution. None. It’s a religious system of belief with no proof.
THERE ARE NO LINKS FROM ONE STAGE OR SPECIES TO ANOTHER. We hear about “a missing link.” There are millions of missing links! But that does not bother the people who want to get rid of God. God gets in the way of our doing what we want to do, especially in the sexual realm. God is in the way. Babies are in the way. Kill God and kill the unwanted babies! Kill them! Every generation gets worse.
WE ARE BORN WITH A CONSCIENCE WHICH SAYS, "DO RIGHT." Little children champion their own integrity in word fights. They know about right and wrong and they want to be right and upright in any argument. But they learn early to re-make their own little world by lying. The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (Psalm 58:3)
Jesus said: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
THE BIBLE TELLS US ABOUT TWO IMPORTANT THINGS: 1. How to get to Heaven. 2. How to live on the way to Heaven. To get to Heaven, we must agree with God on who He is and agree with God on who we are. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6) There’s a way out of our sin problem: it is Jesus.
OUR JOB AS CHRISTIANS IS NOT TO RE-MAKE GOD so He will be acceptable to wicked men. Our job is to tell the truth about the real God who made them and is going to judge them by His standard. We need to tell people that God loves them and sent His Son to die for them. Yes! But a man will have no use for God until He is willing to accept God’s Word about the sin question. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6)
OUR PROBLEM AS A SINNER IS THAT WE WANT TO HAVE OUR OWN WAY. We do not want God to be in charge. Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? (Psalm 12:4) This has always been the problem. No one is going to Heaven with that attitude. No one! That kind of person would turn Heaven into hell. That was the devil’s problem. He was an archangel and he wanted to be in charge.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. (Isaiah 14:12-15)
A WORD TO SOMEONE WHO MAY BE READING THIS BUT, ARE YET UNSAVED: If you want to go to hell and live with the devil and his angels, God will let you. Please don’t do that! He does not want you to go to Hell. It’s your choice. But, if you want to go to Heaven, it will have to be on God’s terms. You will have to repent of your sins; repent of an attitude of being your own boss and yield to God as the Lord of your life. Here are some things from the Bible that God wants you to know:
●Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
●And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (Act 16:31)
●Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)
●That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,(that Jesus is Lord) and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
●Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
●For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
●…I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. (Psalm 38:18)
Are you willing to agree with God and turn to Him with all your heart? It’s the right thing to do. Ω
