Death is Coming

Death is coming. For some of us, we can see the dust on the horizon rising from the wheels of his chariot, the time is so close. For others, the air is clear and still, there is no visible dust….., yet we are filled with apprehension, because we know he is coming. We ask ourselves…..will we see the dust or will we straighten up from some unfinished task as he pulls into the yard…?

Death is coming. It’s not a question of if he is coming, but when? His chariot wheels are already turning, his horse is lathered,…..and there is dust,….we just can’t see it yet. He’s on the way. The only thing to do….is to get prepared. Death will arrive shortly. Are you ready?

Will You Inherit?

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

And such were some of you: but ye are washed (cleansed), but ye are sanctified (set apart), but ye are justified (declared righteous) in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. I Cor. 6:9-11

What characterizes your life day in and day out? A doctor practices medicine. A lawyer practices law. An athlete practices his sport. An unbeliever practices sin. What do you practice?

…….the plowing of the wicked is sin. Proverbs 21:4

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit (practice) sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin (practice sin), because he is born of God. I John 3:9

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. II Corinthians 5:17

Note: Is there any fruit or evidence in your life that you are a Christian? Are you comfortable violating clear commands of Scripture as a way of life? If so, perhaps it is time for an honest self examination.

Jesus answered and said unto him (Nicodemus), Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3

…let the word of Christ dwell (take up its life) in you richly…
