Gods group thoughts for 6/01/2012 “Death to Life – Darkness into the Light”

John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.  (NKJV

Everyone born into this world, is born in sin; and they are considered dead (though still breathing), because of Adam’s fall in the beginning…Romans 5:12Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— (NKJV)

And this sin will stay with us all the way to the grave; and then condemn us to an afterlife separated from God for an eternity…1 John 8:24“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”  (NKJV)

This statement I have made about our eternal death, will happen to all those who do not believe in Jesus Christ; and seek Him by God’s grace through faith alone, to become their personal Lord, their Master, and their Savior… No one living in this world today knows Jesus…  All those who are Christian’s in God’s eyes, have been taken out of this dead sinning world, and made alive through Christ, as citizens of heaven…even though they still live among the walking dead…Philippians 3:20For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, (NKJV)

It’s kind of weird talking about walking dead people…but this is exactly what non believers are… They walk in darkness; and the Christian walks in the light, right along with Christ…John 8:12Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  (NKJV)  …This is the second of seven “I Am” verses in John…

Jesus goes on to tell us this, in…John 12:46I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”  (NKJV)   …The problem with those living in darkness, is that they love their sins more than the Lord… As a matter of fact, they hate the Lord…John 3:20For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  (NKJV) 

These sinners are blinded by Satan, who is known by many names in the Bible; including the “power of darkness” (Colossians 1:13)…  With Satan’s power of blindness, he creates all the temptations with the pleasures of all the lusts of the world that sinners are enjoying; and the pride Satan instills in the sinner that keeps them in darkness…1 John 2:15-16… This evil ruler of this world keeps sinners blinded to hearing, understanding, and obeying the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…

2 Corinthians 4:3-4But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.  (NKJV)

God will use the sharing of the gospel of Christ, which is God’s Word that is found in the Bible…to un-blind sinners and expose their hearts and minds to the need of seeking Jesus Christ with godly repentant hearts…  This step of faith alone, in Christ alone…will allow God with His perfect timing and His perfect will, to draw sinners to Himself… 

Do you feel an urge to learn more about this life changing gospel of Christ ??  It could be God giving you a chance to seek Christ while He may still be found…Isaiah 55:6… There is no better time than right now… Some people (especially the younger generation), believe they have plenty of time to seek the Lord…

If you die without having obeyed the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…or if Christ comes back to earth (as Jesus promises can happen at any time…Matthew 24:30-36)…or if you unexpectedly die in an unforeseen accident…you will indeed be condemned to an eternity in flaming fire…  Open up this attachment above, which will give you some information on the gospel of Christ; and exactly what God reveals in the Bible that seeking Christ for forgiveness of your sins is all about…

Read first hand, what the apostle Paul writes will happen, to those who die in their sins…2 Thessalonians 1:8-9in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, (NKJV)

Heavenly Father, I pray this warning written by the apostle Paul, will leave some readers that You have drawn to Yourself, feeling the urge to not rest until they understand and obey the gospel of Your Son Jesus Christ… I pray Lord that Your Word will cut sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12)…exposing sinners to the need of seeking Christ as their personal Lord and Savior…  May Your Word be used by You Lord, to open the eyes of those in need and draw them to Yourself… And may Your name be proclaimed above all names by all of Your children…  I pray for this…in Jesus’ most holy and precious name, and for His sake…Amen…
