God’s judgment is coming to all the living. The dead already know about their position. The reason to worry over this is because the only instrument that shall be use is the Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Therefore, not reading and doing what the Bible teaches has a lot more to it than being lazy to read it. Everyone has himself or herself to blame if they do not know the laws of God as recorded in the Bible. This is one book that is widely available in many languages and sometimes with different version in one language. It does not cost a lot and often a free one can be secured if you really can’t afford one.
This is one of a very important yet personal post I have posted in this blog. This message is directed to each and every individual that shall read it. I invite you to consider this message as one of a kind in your lifetime.
Since our forefathers lived, the message of Jesus’ second coming has been given urgency by those that share it yet it has not proven to be as urgent. This is what today’s generation could be saying. This would not be surprising because 2 Peter 3:4 forewarns us about such grumblings. St. Peter then reflects back to what happened in the time of Noah when Noah was the message barer of the flood that God would soon send. The story of Noah is recorded in Genesis 5:32 to 9:28. It looks like this world awaits the same destruction but it will be through fire this time.
This could be your question too. There are so many verses that tell of the soon second coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ Himself mentioned this in Mark 1:14 when He said that the Kingdom of God is near. In Hebrews 10:37, the bible tells us that He who is coming will not delay.
The word salvation comes from the word save. Christians claim to be saved but really is such salvation guaranteed? Not at all, only the ones that endure to the end shall be saved (Matthew 24:23). Until then, nobody is saved yet it’s an acceptable claim to be saved because it is a process of working out one’s salvation.
Working out your salvation involves a lot of things but it can be summed up to keeping God’s commandments to the best of you capability. Solomon of old wrote that the entire duty of man is to fear God and keep His commands (Eccl. 12:13). The act of working out your salvation can be termed ‘living a holy life’, without which no man shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).
