Many of us read about and were horrified by the story of the toddler who was snatched and killed by an alligator at Disney's place. My question was~ why was there no warning sign about the danger of the presence of alligators? The terribleness of this accident still haunts me. What if it were one of my grandkids? Can you imagine going home from 'vacation' without a beloved child?
There is only one thing more petrifying to me, then an earthly tragedy, and that is the thought of a loved one dying before they have accepted Christ's salvation gift. This means they will spend forever in hell, and I will never see them again. I must post a "danger" sign today!
As I finish up the study on the last "Book" of the Bible, called Revelation, concepts flow like a river through my mind. Who do I know that has not claimed Christ prize of salvation? If one died, and I had not told them about Jesus and what He did for them, I would be responsible for their eternity of pain. I can not bear that thought. Jesus came to save us from the clutches of satan. Our Savior died and shed His blood to redeem us. When satan deceived Adam into betraying and being disobedient to God, thus condemning himself and all his descendants [putting us under the devil’s rulership], God already had a plan to save us for Himself; but it would involve our use of free will. We each must choose who we will serve in this life: God or Satan; good or evil. That will determine with whom we will spend eternity. God even wrote an instruction manual to show us what we must do. In it is the story of life from creation to the end of this world. The last chapter in this book, called the Bible, is all about Jesus. It reveals so much about Jesus, more than I realized. If you want to know Jesus, do not stop before doing a study of Revelation. Christ is the Faithful and True King of kings, Lord of lords! I thought I knew who He is, but after I studied this concluding ‘book’ of the Bible, I thought, “WOW! He’s even a lot bigger, a lot more than I thought!"
So who is Jesus to you? Do you know how deep is his love for you? Do you understand that He endured excruciating suffering to pay sin debt for you and me? He made it possible for us to have an intimate relationship with God. Have you yearned for a closer connection, a deeper bond with God? Do you know He has a purpose for your life? My friends, do not go another day without seeking Him and enjoying the fullness of the life He created you to live. He even will send Holy Spirit to indwell you and help you.
1 John 3:24 (AMPC)
All who keep His commandments [who obey His orders and follow His plan, live and continue to live, to stay and] abide in Him, and He in them.
[They let Christ be a home to them and they are the home of Christ.]
And by this we know and understand and have the proof
that He [really] lives and makes His home in us:
by the [Holy] Spirit Whom He has given us.
My friends, do not allow pride to blind your inner vision to what might be God's word to you personally. Ask Him for truth.
