God or money? Eternal Life or lake of fire?

We cannot serve God and the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan; we cannot serve God and money, and we cannot be a servant of righteousness and unrighteousness: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10).

“Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them” (Psalm 62:9–10).

Jesus says: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

Do not be deceived because eternal life is not going to be on this earth (Isaiah 65:17-18) (Revelation 21:1-2): “For surely there is an end” (Proverbs 23:18).

On the Last Day. The Day of Judgment, before the final warth of God is poured out on this earth, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11); “then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It is done.’” (Revelation 16:17–18, 20–21).

This heaven and earth will pass away!

Jesus is not coming to reign on this earth because at the end of the Day of Judgment, this earth will become uninhabitable (Isaiah 24:19) (Revelation 16:17–18). This heaven and earth is not a space of everlasting habitations. This heaven and earth will pass away (Jeremiah 4:23) (Revelation 21:1).

God “hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” (Acts 17:26).

Jesus is very clear when he says: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah. But God is the judge: [HE PUTTETH DOWN ONE, AND SETTETH UP ANOTHER]” (Psalms 46:6, 75:3, 7). Peter confirmed this when he said: “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

Jesus is very clear when he says: “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2–3).

Do you know that money is unrighteous?

Jesus says: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).

Jesus also encouraged us says: “And I say unto you, make to yourselves friends of the [MAMMON OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations” (Luke 16:9).

The day is coming when it will be all over: The End

It doesn’t matter who we are in this world, whether well known such as a King, Queen. Prince, President, billionaire, millionaire or not so well known, everyone is doing something to make a living and even profiting on this earth created by God: “For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5), says the word of God.

The word of God also says: “The profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field” (Ecclesiastes 5:9).

At the very minimum then, why is it so difficult to believe in the only begotten Son of God: JESUS.

“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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

Jesus says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

The day is coming when this money racket will have an end, and untold numbers of people will be very angry.

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).

Is there any shame in being alive?

If the answer is no, then surely, there should be no shame in believing in Jesus because he is “the Christ of God” (Luke 9:20); the Salvation of God (Luke 2: 25-26): the only Savior with the power to give eternal life at the end of the world (John 3:16-18).

“For the Scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 10:11).

Jesus says: “For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26).

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the [Gentile]” (Romans 1:16).

Breaking News! Breaking News! Breaking News!

We live is a world where live media is now in the palm of our hands, and when these words flash across our smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops or television screens, without a doubt it grabs our attention.

However, the day is coming and it is soon coming, when all eyes will be looking up to the heavens! On that day, every human alive and risen from the dead including those who pierced his side on the cross at Calvary will see Lord Jesus coming with great power in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels (Luke 9:26) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) (Revelation 11:18).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

“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 22:20-21).

The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God:

When we read the headlines on any internet media platform or television on any day, we get a sense of the wisdom of this world: “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

News headlines such as celebrity breakups, makeups; body shaming; slamming; worst dress; best dress; most expensive dress; beauty tips; and the list goes on.

“The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men” (Proverbs 24:9).

“The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness” (Proverbs 15:2).

Jesus explained “That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man” (Mark 7:20-23).

Every day let us remember how we are to live in this world of foolishness according to the instructions of Paul who said: “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise; Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:15-20).

God is Good:

Jesus says: “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same?” (Matthew 5:44-46).

Which One?

One early morning, as he rummaged through the garbage bins to find food, a homeless man stumbles upon a box with a note on the outside: “Within this box are two compartments that will change your life forever”. “You can choose only ONE!”

He proceeded to open the box: There was another note on the inside: “Open the first the right compartment”

Right Compartment: Within was the Authorize King James verson of the Holy Bible with a hand written note:
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).

Left Compartment: Within is the latest smartphone with instructions to turn on and to play the voice note:

“May name is anonymous, and you have exactly nine (9) minutes to agree.”
“I have been observing you for sometime. I have no children to leave my wealth and riches.”
“There is a folder marked “keys to my wealth”. To give you an example: Swiss bank accounts in the millions, fully staffed mansions in major cities, private islands, private jets, luxury cars and the list goes on.”
“However, you must agree to follow the strict guidelines of the Trustee of my Estate to preserve this wealth for the next person who shall be chosen upon your death.”
“Finally, you will have a luxury lifestyle but, you will end up like the rich man in the biblical story of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31).”
The clock in ticking and you have six (6) minutes.

What if we were in this homeless man’s position, which compartment would we choose?

Eternal Life or second death?

It is inconceivable why every human being wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to seek obtain the promise of eternal life (John 3:16-18).
At the end of time, the Last Day, the Day of Judgment, there will be no debate on who is going to live or die. Any wise and prudent person would not desire the alternative which is eternal damnation (Matthew 25:41, 46) (Revelation 14:11, 20:14-15).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, “the Christ of God” (Luke 9:20), the only Savior (John 3:16-18) says: “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Luke 13:28). This is very, very serious because on the Day of Judgment: it will be FINAL; there will be no APPEAL (John 5:21-30). Therefore, be wise and do as Jesus instructs saying: “Repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

“For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found” (Psalm 32:6). “I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin” (Psalm 32:5).

“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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).

“For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the [Gentile]: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:11-13).
