Once we have come to the ‘BRIDGE’ leading to ETERNAL LIFE WE MUST NOT LOOK BACK TO THIS WORLD. To look back to this world is to look back to the evil of this world is to look back to EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT in the Lake of Fire (Matthew 25:31-33. 41, 46).
“Jesus Christ the same [YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) says:
“No man, having put his hand to the plough, and [LOOKING BACK], is fit for the Kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).
“But he that shall [ENDURE UNTO THE END], the same shall be [SAVED]” (Matthew 24:13).
“Remember Lot’s wife” (Luke 17:32)?
Lot, his wife and two daughters were ELECTED to be SAVED from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The angels of God told them, saying: “Escape for thy life; [LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE], neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed” (Genesis 19:17).
Lot’s wife did not believe EVERY word of God as spoken by the angels of God :…” LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE,…”.. Lot’s wife was disobedient to the word of God; LOT’S WIFE DID NOT ENDURE TO THE END AND LOST HER SALVATION! Lot’s wife loved life so much in Sodom and Gomorrah that she had to have one last look, but it was not to be, because she turned into a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26).
“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto [THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
JESUS further warns of his COMING says: “[BE YE THEREFORE READY] also: for the Son of man [COMETH AT AN HOUR WHEN YE THINK NOT]” (Luke 12:40).
“[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME], except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).
“I [AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
“[BEHOLD, I COME AS A THIEF. BLESSED IS HE THAT WATCHETH], and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and [THE END], the first and [THE LAST]” (Revelation 22:13).
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
[HE WHICH TESTIFIETH THESE THINGS SAITH, SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:16-21).
