MESSAGE FOR THE WEEK OF 08-02-20
AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
This warning is from JESUS CHRIST and is intended for all of us so we are fully aware of the coming events and to be spiritually ready when JESUS CHRIST returns to this earth for His bride. Folks, He is not returning for those who are not saved, for those who are offended at Him and are ashamed to speak His Name. He is not returning for those who are not fully committed to serve Him and who are keeping one foot delightfully in the world to serve their flesh and attempt to serve JESUS CHRIST. It does not work that way folks and you need to make a choice right now. Our time on this earth is short and it is time to start asking yourself the important question, where do you want to spend your eternal destiny? Everyone is going somewhere folks, and this will take place after the judgment when we all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Being a “good person” will not make the cut because there is no such thing as a good person without the precious blood of JESUS CHRIST to cover us. We are all sinners and wicked before The LORD GOD. That is why JESUS CHRIST came to this earth and freely died on the cross for our sins. JESUS CHRIST will return on a day that only GOD The FATHER knows so this means we should always be ready for Him.
Genesis 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Just like in the days of Noah, so it will be when JESUS CHRIST returns. The people ignored the warnings that The LORD GOD had given Noah, a preacher of righteousness, to preach to them until it was too late. They had never seen rain before and probably laughed at the message, until they saw that first drop of rain fall from heaven and reality kicked in. By this time, it was too late for them because The LORD had given them an opportunity to repent and they freely chose to ignore the warning and go about their daily business and focus on the world. There are many people today that are doing the very same thing!
2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly:
How utterly tragic that The LORD GOD who lovingly created us in His image was grieved in His heart because of all the wickedness that man had done! In the midst of this wickedness Noah found favour in The LORD’S eyes.
Genesis 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
The LORD GOD spared Noah and his family from His wrath because he and his household were serving The LORD. Noah prepared for the coming flood and was obedient to The LORD by having faith and trusting in Him. He and his family had never seen rain before, just like the people who did not believe The LORD’S warning. However, the difference was Noah and his family chose to believe and follow The LORD GOD’S instruction and they were rewarded for their obedience by being saved from the devastation!
Genesis 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
Because Noah and his family were prepared, they were saved. Once Noah, his family and all the animals that The LORD instructed him to bring were on the ark, The LORD then shut the door. At this point everyone and everything on the dry land was condemned. When The LORD shuts the door, NO ONE will be able to open it. This is something to remember for those of you who are living in wishy-washy faith or are rejecting JESUS CHRIST altogether. If you continue in your complacency there will come a time when it will be too late for you. Will your worldly treasures and commitments help you then? Will your manicure, Netflix, X-box, football game, business meeting, or celebrity worship help you then?
Matthew 24:37-39 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Folks, get your priorities in order and realize that you will be condemned to spend eternity in hell with the devil and his angels if you continue to reject JESUS CHRIST, if you continue to think you are okay because of your man-made “religion”, family traditions, and worldly traditions. I will emphasize: There is no such thing as a good person and your good deeds will not save you, ONLY JESUS CHRIST can save you. As we read in Romans 3:23-24 GOD’S Word states: For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Wake up and pray up people. Make sure everything is right between you and The LORD GOD. Make sure you know beyond the shadow of a doubt where you will spend eternity. LORD JESUS CHRIST warns us in Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Think about it folks! Get your priorities in order and realize that your time on this earth is short. Realize that life is not about you and your selfish needs, but serving JESUS CHRIST. He is the only reason that you are living and breathing today. It is time to start preparing so you are ready for the return of JESUS CHRIST. If He comes back and you are not ready, you will certainly regret your free-will choices that you have made; however, by that time it will be too late!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED AND WILL HAVE NO EXCUSE ON JUDGEMENT DAY!
TO YOU BE ALL THE GLORY HEAVENLY FATHER! IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I PRAY. AMEN! Jerilynn A. Davis https://JesusTheGoodNews.com
