NO TURNING BACK – AND YOU?
A message inspired by the dear indigenous missionaries in the 3rd world. I thank GOD for you all!
GOD RESCUES LOT
Genesis 19:12-15 “And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: 13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it. 14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. 15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.”
JESUS WAS NOT PART OF THE CREATION – HE “IS”
John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word (JESUS), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 THE SAME WAS IN THE BEGINNING with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 IN HIM WAS LIFE; and the life was the light of men. 5 And THE LIGHT SHINETH IN DARKNESS; andTHE DARKNESS COMPREHENDED IT NOT.”
Genesis 19:26 “But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.”
Luke 17:32 “Remember Lot’s wife.”
1Co 6:17 “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.”
Luke 9:59-62 “And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
YOU MUST FORSAKE ALL – YOUR EXCUSES WILL NOT WORK ON JUDGEMENT DAY
Luke 14:26-27 “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE.”
Luke 14:33 “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that FORSAKETH NOT ALL THAT HE HATH, he CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE.”
Luke 9:23-25 “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?”
“99%” WHO PROFESS CHRIST DENY HIM IN THOUGHT, WORD & DEED.”
Mark 7:6-9 “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, THAT YE MAY KEEP YOUR OWN TRADITION.”
NOT LIKE THE BLASPHEMOUS BILLY GRAHAM OR BENNY HINN “CRUSADES” WHERE HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS SUPPOSEDLY GET “SAVED”. LIES!
THE “RIGHTEOUS ARE SCARCELY SAVED”….
1st Peter 4:16-19 “Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED, WHERE SHALL THE UNGODLY AND SINNER APPEAR? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”
A TRUE CHRISTIAN IS HATED AND WILL BE SEPARATE FROM SINNERS
Luke 6:22 “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.”
Romans 10:15 “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Col 4:5-6 “WALK IN WISDOM toward them that are without (CHRIST), redeeming the time. 6 Let your SPEECH be ALWAY with GRACE, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to ANSWER MAN.”
Ephesians 5:15-16 “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 REDEEMING THE TIME, because the days are evil.”
1st Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
Mark 10:14 “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not:
for of such is the kingdom of God.”
Psa 119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
Psa 119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
Psa 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psa 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Psa 119:105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Isaiah 58:1 “CRY ALOUD, SPARE NOT, LIFT UP THY VOICE AS A TRUMPET, and shew my people their transgression (SIN), and the house of Jacob their sins.”
Luke 3:7-9 “Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 BRING FORTH THEREFORE FRUITS WORTHY OF REPENTANCE, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”
SO MANY PROFESSING “CHRISTIANS” ARE “LIVING IN PLEASURE”
James 5:1-6 “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. YE HAVE HEAPED TREASURE FOR THE LAST DAYS (YOU HAVE BURIED THE TALENT$ THAT BELONG TO GOD). 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 YE HAVE LIVED IN PLEASURE ON EARTH, and been WANTON (INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE – NON SACRIFICIAL FOR CHRIST); ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just (BY INACTION / SINS OF OMISSION); and HE doth not resist you.”
