Rapture, the return of Jesus, will be so sudden that many will be caught unawares! Are you always ready?
Programmes, good deeds or carrying out so called “visions” will be the greatest distractions of many that they won’t know when death strikes or rapture takes place! Are you always ready?
The greatest surprise at the gates of eternity will not be that of unbelievers told to depart to hell but of many believers whose faith is based on what Pastors said alone without properly checking the Bible for real truth and are sent to hell.
One great trick of Satan is to make the gospel so light so everything can be permissible in it. The tough stuff folk are running from are very easy to bear for those who have truly submitted to God. “My yoke is easy and my burden is light”, Jesus said.
Many people you see on the pulpit are well compromised beyond measure that you need your bible undiluted to gauge things said otherwise you will land in hell fast!
Many people you see on the pulpit are there because many churches want to grow up fast and expand everywhere. Many are not born again. Many have half-truths (which are more dangerous than outright lies). Many are forced there to hold forth. Many do it for employment purpose. And they will do everything to make people stay. Check and base your life on the Bible only!
I have met pastors who don’t see why God will send them to hell because they fornicate from time to time owing to what is tagged “weakness of the body”. They claim so much of grace that you’ll be thinking why is your own gospel so hard. Many have given heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of daemons. Study your bible!
You always come with the guy you’re sleeping with from the house to the church (while unmarried, but immorality continues unabated), this is a common knowledge to all, your pastor inclusive, but he says nothing about it nor excuses you from the choir or ushering unit you’re ministering in, HE IS NOT A SERVANT OF GOD, but a hireling. He hates your very soul. Just using you for gain.
If you truly thirst for eternity with God and not to end up in eternal damnation, you will not stand only on what man says but look thoroughly through the Bible like the Berean christians of Acts of Apostles!
“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” Acts 17:11.
A supposed big pastor then in the 90’s held me in a conversation, teaching me how no matter what we do we can never go to hell. He’s reputed to have bedded several girls, so I think he began to read some books on the so called “super grace” to quieten his soul from condemnation. I knew better, because I was too glued to the Bible. Nothing gives peace like the truth. Repent if you sin. Tell others it’s wrong. Simple!
Truth is: Many people who go to church don’t go for truth but just for other purposes of that church has always been part of their life from birth or they must be there to socialise. Therefore, don’t blame entertaining churches and pastors because many created their pastors and churches to be so, funding them to be so! Paul prophesied it while writing to Timothy!
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
Once your heart is totally set on the things of eternity and that every other thing is secondary, you will face such a stiff opposition among believers to such a stage you will wonder, “for what reason did they come to Christ in the first place?”
There’s grace and it’s by it we’re saved. Functional grace makes the life of God, life of holiness liveable and eternity with Christ accessible. Grace is not to be living sinful life and expecting Christ to take us home on the final day! No!
Many people are too compromised beyond repairs (at least for now) that you need to focus your own heart on God and the things of God rather than trying to bring them along because you might slide down the slope with them if you keep being around them. “A little leaven leavens the whole lump”, Paul warned!
One day everyone will turn their back on your coffin. You’re left alone with God the judge of all. The sweet-tongued pastors are no longer there!
One day the trumpet will sound. Will be too late for those who are not prepared. Jesus taught this. The Apostles also did! Does your pastor do or you’re just doing everyday singing and dancing?
If your husband or pastor is comfortable with you opening your breasts in your dresses and doesn’t correct you on such, he’s not a godly man. A true child of God should not follow such fellow!
The Gospel of Jesus is simple. Sin is sin. Righteousness is righteousness. No unrighteous person shall see the face of God.
“He that sins is of the Devil.” 1 John 3:8.
There’s no grace that covers people’s sins. Grace deals with sin culture and implants God-culture so we can live God-life. If you habitually live in sin, you’ve not received grace. With repentance from dead works, grace culture will have free flow in your life.
Bottom line is: Before that day of death or rapture when you’ll no longer be able to argue anymore, check and re- examine yourself bible-based, then repent if sins are found. That’s grace. Ability to check yourself and repent. That’s grace!
Seek the Lord while He may be found. There’s a time it’s too late!
Peace be upon you & all yours in Jesus name. Amen.
