The devil is pretty good at his game. He distracts with drug use, pornography, political, entertainment…along with his earthly allies, he is trying to keep you from God. Keep up with Forward Recovery because the times are even worse than I realized. It will be very rough here the last 7 years of earth history but the worst part is an eternity away from Jesus, aka God, and when you realize His death was supposed to be you, you will get it. It’s the hardest thing to do, that is to be a Christ follower but this life is a vapor. When you die you stand before Him. He died for YOU, took your punishment. He loves you and He is a JUST God. HE cannot and will not be in the presence of sin. I always considered myself as a pretty good guy but when studying the Law, I am a sinner who broke all 10 of the commandments. Yes murder is included.
21 “You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment. 22 But I say, if you are even angry with someone,(without cause) you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, (you fool) you are in danger of the fires of hell.
Submit to Him, let Him be your King of kings. Do not be the one who hears ” depart from me you worker of iniquity, I never knew you”. Matthew 7: 23
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
Deuteronomy 4:33-35 NKJV — “Did any people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? “Or did God ever try to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? “To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD Himself is God; there is none other besides Him.
Acts 17:22-23 NLT — So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about.
“Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near.
In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.
I study more and more attempting to figure this out. The lesson is that it is going to happen. Be ready ang KNOW Jesus as your personal Savior today You will have peace beyond all understanding.
