God is so ardent in His love for us that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to open our eyes to the character and heart of the Father, and then Jesus sacrificed His life; He was crucified for us which opened the door for you and I (now cleansed) to freely enter into a deep intimate relationship with our God. Before He left earth, Jesus finished His preparation of the apostles and left them on earth to continue to teach us His truth. Apostle Peter’s second letter teaches us and warns us about the days we now live in:
2 Peter 3:1-7 [Message] First of all, I want you to know that in the last days men will laugh at the truth. They will follow their own sinful desires. 4 They will say, “He promised to come again. Where is He? Since our early fathers died, everything is the same from the beginning of the world.” 5 But they want to forget that God spoke and the heavens were made long ago. The earth was made out of water and water was all around it. 6 Long ago the earth was covered with water and it was destroyed.
7 But the heaven we see now and the earth we live on now have been kept by His word. They will be kept until they are to be destroyed by fire. They will be kept until the day men stand before God and sinners will be destroyed.
Peter warns us about the ‘last days’ ~ people will laugh at the truth; they will scoff; the Amplified puts it this way:scoffers (mockers) will come in the last days with scoffing, [people who] walk after their own fleshly desires. This is an apt description of today.
Jesus teachings are being scoffed at; we who follow His Word are being challenged and punished and denied our rights. Good is treated as evil; evil is treated as good. The deceived scoff at the Word of God. They scoff at the commands of Jesus denying the mighty God we serve ~ He Who spoke the world into existence, who caused the evil world to be deluged by flood, destroyed; and one day it will be again destroyed but by fire. These days, our God, Who sent His only Son to die for our salvation, is denied and laughed at.
Until the time of the end of the world, our powerful God keeps the world in His care for His children. I cannot express a deep enough earnestness in mere words ~ the desire, the intense yearning of the Father for His beloved children. It is His desire that none should be damned to everlasting suffering. God loves everyone of His children with a deep and abiding love, and so desires that they all choose to come to repentance. God once told Chip Brimm that His saddest day will be Judgement Day, when He must tell some of His children that He must turn them away; their name is not written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
It is our mission to bring His truth to all we know, to tear as many as we individually can from satan’s clutches; we cannot leave the job to 'missionaries' alone.
Heaven and Hell, my friends, is for eternity, forever and forever. . But we always have the opportunity to live with a mind open to God's truth. We have choice. If you have the truth, then live your life spreading the truth and the salvation message of Jesus! Do not fear, but rather call upon Holy Spirit to give you the words to speak that will plant hope and truth seeds in the hearts of all that He will show you. Be courageous; fear not!
