Here is a statistic many choose to ignore… 10 out of 10 people die!
The Bible makes it clear that there will come a day where all will be judged by God for the deeds that they have done in this life Rom. 14:12 - So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Most believe that they are inherently good people because they judge themselves by looking at the faults of others. What we must understand though is that man’s thoughts on what is good and acceptable are far different from that of God’s. Look at these passages from the Bible...
Ecc. 7:20 - For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
Isa. 64:6 - But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Rom. 3:10 - As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom. 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
1 John 1:8 - If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Examine the life you’ve lived for a moment and ask yourself these questions.
Have you ever…
Taken the Lord’s name in vain?
Dishonored your mother or father?
God’s justice demands punishment for those who have broken His law.
The Bible says…
Rom. 6:23(a) For the wages of sin is death;
Rev. 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
God’s punishment for sin is an eternity of damnation in hell to all those who have broken His law... this includes you -
But Thank God - "Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound" - Rom. 5:20
God’s Love and Mercy made a way for sinful man to be reconciled to Him. Rom. 6:23(b)... but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God sent His Son Jesus from the glory of Heaven down to sin-cursed Earth to pay the debt that we could not. There was no way for man to make a way unto God, so God made a way for us to be reconciled unto Him. Jesus was tempted, yet knew no sin. The innocent lamb of God took the place of sinful man. He was crucified upon the Cross to pay for the sins that we made - then rose from the dead three days later for our justification!
Jesus took your place and paid the price for your sins when He shed His blood on the Cross of Calvary. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
You can be saved from the damnation that is sure to come if you die in your sins. Repent and believe in the Lord Jesus and He will save your soul today!
Rom. 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
If you will simply believe on the Lord Jesus (put your trust in Him & Him alone for your salvation) and receive Him as your Lord and Saviour (pray unto Him and ask Him to be) then you can become a 'son of God' - 'heir of God through Christ' (Gal. 4:7) and saved from the Judgment and damnation of God.
REPENT– TRUST IN JESUS FOR YOUR SALVATION TODAY
HE IS THE ONLY WAY TO ESCAPE THE JUDGEMENT TO COME!
