You have to Meet God Sometime
“As righteousness tendeth to LIFE: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own DEATH.” Proverbs 11:19. “For the wages of sin is DEATH; but the gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
Where will you spend eternity?
“Oh, I’ll take my chance,” you say.
But there is “no chance” to it.
If you live in sin you will die.
If you tread the road to hell, you must arrive there finally. There can be no doubt about that.
What “chance” can you have of escaping the doom of a Godless, Christless life, when God, who cannot lie, has plainly declared: “The wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.” Colossians 3:6, and “Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil.” Romans 2:9.
No, your only possible “chance” of escape in your present state is, that God is a liar and will not do what He has said He would do. Is that likely? Do you find any comfort in that? I am sure you do not.
The truth of the matter is that you do not dare to face the facts at all. You simply go on as if you had no soul to save, no God to meet, no eternity to spend, and then glibly talk of “taking a chance” of the consequences of living without God. You may make up your mind as to this, as surely as God has said it – that the end of your source is in “the pit” Isaiah 14:15, of hell where all go who “forget God” Psalm 9:17, and from which there is no deliverance.
Way back at the time of Eden when Satan caused our first parents to sin, God, when He said to Satan, “Thou art cursed,” Genesis 3:14, pronounced a curse upon him that has never been removed.
So now you and all others who are in sin are serving Satan and consequently the “Law of the Curse” operates upon you because you are identified with Satan in your sin. Because you are serving Satan you will also receive his wages, which is death, for we read in Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is DEATH…”; “death” is the judgment that must fall upon you, that is your end if you continue to play the game of SIN with Satan. YOU HAVE NO “CHANCE” TO WIN FOR THE DICE ARE LOADED AGAINST YOU.
“But the Gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
Thank God, there is NOW one way of escape. I am glad to be able to tell you that there is no “chance,” no uncertainty about this way. The way to God, to Christ, to heaven, is no haphazard “try your luck” affair. It is as clear, sure and plain as God can make it. Jesus says: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” John 14:6.
If you will take Jesus Christ as your Saviour you are saved from sin. The “Law of Life” operates in you and you are washed clean from your sins by the Blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary’s cross, for Jesus was “made sin” for you. The curse now falls upon Him, who has become your substitute. If you refuse to let Jesus become a substitute for your sins, the curse of sin will fall upon you, and the curse is death, for God has decreed in II Chronicles 25:4, “every man shall die for his own sin.” But, praise God, Jesus died for your sins (Romans 5:6) and you may live IF you accept Him as your Saviour, for Jesus Himself said, “If a man keep My saying, he shall never see death.” John 8:51.
Jesus Christ gave His life to save YOU and His terms are simple and plain: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED.” Romans 10:9.
Two ways are open to you, “choose you this day whom ye will serve.” Joshua 24:15. God places the responsibility upon you, which will you take, the wages of sin or the gift of God – DEATH or LIFE?
