God’s Promise Is Not Slack

'Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.'

'But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.'

The Day of the Lord

'But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.'

2 Peter 3:1-13

Only Jesus Christ saves.

Knowing



I know, without a doubt, that when I kick-the-bucket, I will be with Christ in Heaven, even though I am a sinner and by rights, I should not be there.

I don't deserve to enter heaven on my own good works, I could never do enough good deeds to earn it anyway. I can't buy it either - it's not for sale.

Salvation, redemption of sins and reconciliation with God is the gift of God through Jesus Christ alone. It's open to anyone and everyone right now! That includes you reader!

If you are still trusting on your own goodness you won't make it. Relying on your own self-righteousness is going to fall pitifully short. Or are you so good that you are equal to God?

Nobody is promised tomorrow so why are you waiting for 'the right time' to get saved through Christ? The day of salvation is TODAY!

You can Know for sure that you will be in heaven one day.

Today? Tomorrow? Next year? Now?



Ready?

Checklist:
Do I know Christ?
Do I acknowledge what He has truly done for me - specifically me - on the cross?
Do I accept Jesus Christ as my personal saviour?
Do I truly realise my own self righteousness falls waaaay short of God's righteousness and glory?
Have I humbled myself and asked Him for forgiveness? Do I really mean it?
Am I willing to repent, to change my mind, my life, and look to live for Jesus, knowing I am not expected to be perfect but to earnestly try to put Him first in all things and trust in Him alone?
Have I thanked Him from my heart for saving me?
Have I asked for His Holy Spirit to fill me and guide me?
Am I willing to accept, through faith alone (as a child would), who Jesus is and to look for Him, knowing that He will show Himself to me - and that is His promise?

Jesus is God. He paid the highest price for you, specifically you, to be saved - if you want it! You have a choice.

It's up to you now, the choice you make is yours and yours alone.

I hope it's the right one.

Rising rapidly




A couple of years ago in the UK there was a transport strike on fuel duty. Within days there was panic buying of fuel and food items. The supermarket aisles were quickly emptied nationwide - there were no deliveries to re-stock them.

Things returned to normal soon after, queues died down, fridges got refilled, life returned to 'normality'.

Now imagine that you couldn't get any food, couldn't get paid or gainful employment at all unless you 'opted in' to a new financial reset incl. of new technology requiring every citizen to partake.

You take the mark or you starve. Will you take the mark?

It's here. Better get your head out of the sand and see the times we are in!

Jesus Christ is God. He has paid for you in full if you will accept Him into your heart, ask for forgiveness in His name and repent, change your mind and turn to Christ. God has given you an exit to an incredible eternity with Him - it's through the door marked Jesus!
