So what happens to billions that willfully reject, patronize, or pervert the gospel of Christ to suit their own will? Judgment of-course! All of us at one time or another have been guilty of physically lying, cheating, and stealing. And in our hearts having murdered, fornicated, and hating without cause. Do we really think that the few good things we have done will cancel out the evil we have committed in this life when we stand before a Holy and Righteous Judge like God, especially after offering us a pardon by sacrificing his only Son to pay the price for our sin, and make a way for use to receive power to change and become his adopted children. Do we really think that God is going to make an exception for those that have chosen to reject salvation through Jesus Christ, directly or indirectly?
In this life we have human judges that would never accept the balance of good things done in the past to excuse crimes committed during our lives, why would we delude ourselves into believing that a Holy God would be slack in delivering righteous judgment. We are either pardoned by God through knowing Christ (walk the walk) or condemned for being only hearers of the word (talk the talk).
The popular public school slogan in the 1970's “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” used to try and stem the growing high-school dropout rate is nothing compared to the rate at which this country and the world is choosing to reject Jesus Christ as the ONLY-WAY to forgiveness and pardon from The Father (God). Eternal Life is truly a horrible thing waste in hell, almost too terrible to contemplate, yet what is actually at stake. Now the great news is that God has made a way of escape (salvation), into eternal life through the baptism of His Son Jesus Christ by receiving the Holy Spirit and becoming adopted children of God, having that blessed assurance in our hearts from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that we are the children of God, a supernatural peace that surpasses all understanding.
Every one of us that are “Born-Again” and once walked in darkness realize that all the pain that this life offered either real or imagined was for our own good, driving us toward the “realization or self-denial” of a purpose driven life to know and walk with God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, because of what our savior Jesus Christ did on the cross. We are without excuse if we ignore so great a salvation.
DO NOT become guilty of godlessness like Esau did, who sold his own birthright and entire inheritance for single pleasure. Understand that later on, when Esau wanted his inheritance and blessing of God, he was rejected, and he could find no opportunity to repair through repentance the choice he had made, even though Esau sought for it carefully with bitter tears. Heb 12:16-17
We all were once little children, our hearts capable of recognizing the truth and totally willing to accept, believe, and follow God. This is why our hearts must be as a child to take back what we have allowed sin to take away from us. We must turn back to God and receive back the dreams and inheritance we lost to Satan.
Jesus said, "I tell you the truth , unless you turn from your sins and become like little children(born again), you will NEVER get to the Kingdom of Heaven.
