THE GOOD NEWS MINISTRY AND MISSIONS OUTREACH PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF THE SOON RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST!
Revealing The Time Before Its To Late!
It is a dreadful sight to see multitudes of disobedient and rebellious sinners hastening on the swift torrent of time to that great ocean of eternity without considering the consequence of their present impieties. Unless they repent, they will undergo a severe examination before the great Judge of heaven and earth, and will be finally imprisoned in the deepest depths of HELL to be irrevocably fixed in an everlasting state of misery and woe!
It is strange to see intelligent creatures so far sunk into brutish stupidity, so far forgetting the design of their being, that their chief intent is to engage in the business of every worldly, selfish pleasure, to amass temporary and perishing vanities without the slightest concern for their everlasting state!
The Coming of the Son of Man will be sudden and unexpected: "The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat." (2 Peter 3:10, KJV.)
Because we do not know the exact time of our Lord's Coming, we should be every day expecting it and preparing for it.
The eternal Son of God will descend visibly from the heavenly paradise, that throne of majestic beauty and radiant glory. When he came as Savior, his divine glory was veiled with the mantle of his humanity. But when he comes as Judge, he will assume a splendor and a greatness suitable to the glory of his deity!
How dreadful will it be for the unbelieving, the rebellious, the disobedient, to behold the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, encompassed with power and great glory! (1 Thessalonians 4:16)
The thunder of the archangel's trumpet, accompanied by the almighty power of Christ, will pierce the most remote recesses of the earth and the sea, and will rouse their inhabitants from the sleep of death. The whole rational creation who have ever lived may appear at once, in a universal rendezvous, before the dread tribunal of the "Lord Jesus Christ." (Revelation 20:12-15)
Then the naughtiest monarchs, the subtlest politicians, the wealthy, the businessmen, the merchants, the military strategists and the boldest heroes will forget their former power, courage and grandeur, and will cry to the mountains to hide them from the face of the Lamb who sits on the throne. (Revelation 6:15-17)
They will bow to that Savior whom they here scorned and will implore his favor. Their lamentations over sin and their supplications for mercy and pardon might be serviceable to them here in the time of life and health. But then it will be too late! Too late!
Before them is the Lord Jesus, who once offered himself to be their Savior but now is their Judge! When they behold his eyes as flames of fire and hear his voice as the sound of many waters, (Revelation 1: 14-15) their hearts will be racked with the most acute pain!
The vast assembly of the living and the dead thus will be brought before the burning tribunal, and a separation will be made-the goats will be put on the left hand of Christ and the sheep at his right. (Matthew 25:33)
Not only will great crimes be examined, but also those lesser evils in which many people think there is no harm. The charges will be read out loud against you. There will be no excuse or pardon made available to you. The billions of people who will die and have died without God and His Son Jesus Christ since the Garden of Eden, will be forever locked in Hell for eternity. On the contrary, the duties of piety and charity that the True and Faithful Christians have done will be proclaimed with honor. Their secret sighs, prayers, tears and sufferings for righteousness' sake will come into remembrance and be rewarded openly: "I was hungry and you gave Me food, naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me". (Cf. Matthew 25:35-36)
The least charitable action of a gracious saved person-even to the cup of cold water-will neither be forgotten nor pass unrewarded.
"Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." (Matthew 25:34, KJV) O' precious sentence!
O' how sweet are Jesus' words: "Come. You were slighted and deserted by My enemies, but I will never forsake you. Come from a sinful and miserable world into the embraces of My bosom, and enjoy the delights of My love. Come, inherit that glorious Kingdom that was prepared for you from everlasting. Come, dwell with God and with the holy angels. Come and drink the delights of heaven, the crystal streams of life that flow from the throne of God. Come you troubled and weary souls, inherit the rest prepared for you!"
It is not possible to express with words the rivers of joy and gladness that will run into the hearts of the glorified Saints! After their joyful sentence is passed, they will be conducted to the city of the great God.
After this will come the sentence of the wicked. These souls, being convicted of their ungrateful disobedience and rebellion against God, must then hear these dreadful words from the mouth of Christ: "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41, KJV)
What can be more full of terror than his sentence? You wanted God to depart from you in this world, you liked not the knowledge of His ways, and you slighted the company of his servants. Now you must depart from them forever. Depart into never-ending torments prepared for the vilest and most malignant spirits.
Then these unhappy wretches will be dragged from the Judgment Seat and forever banished-from God's presence, from the blissful regions of light and love, from all the joys and the glories of the heavenly paradise-and from the least hope of ever attaining them!
Unless you repent, that sentence will be executed against you. A terrible damnation awaits you if you continue in your sins, your rebellion, your disobedience, being in the business of this world instead of being about God's business. Jesus said: " I must be about My Father's Business" This statement also echo's the True Believers Mission, To be about God's Business and only God's business. Because Christ defers his Coming, sinners will not believe that he is coming or prepare for it. But be assured that Christ will certainly come to judge you.
That which can prepare us for the judgement of the great God is justification from the guilt of sin by the grace of Christ, and sanctification from the power of sin by the Spirit of Christ.
Wash your hearts from wickedness! How long will vain thoughts lodge within you? "Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double-minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep." (James 4:8-9, KJV)
Life is short, eternity is long. Death is near, and the Judge is at the door. In a little time you will be past all remedy if you do not repent.
O' sinners! I beg you to observe these things faithfully. Then the Day of Christ will be a Day of refreshing to you. You will long for it and will say, "Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly; even so come, blessed Son of God!" (Cf Revelation 22:20)
Let Us Pray Together--
PRAY: "God be merciful to me a sinner. Receive me now for Christ's sake. Cleanse me from my sin by your precious blood, shed on the cross for me; lead me to be Baptized and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Teach me to pray each day; to read Your will for my life from your word, the Bible; and help me to worship and serve You in the fellowship of your church. I thank you Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN!
