"Alienated then Reconciled!"

“Alienated then Reconciled!”


Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds because of your evil actions.  But now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him.          Colossians 1:21-22


Our sinful nature alienates or separates us from our Creator God, and through our thought process we become evil in our actions.  Sin begins in the heart, and is then manifested through our evil actions.  We are enemies of God, and are in need of a SAVIOR to rescue us from Satan, the king of the dark domain.


The RECONCILATION of mankind’s soul can ONLY be carried out by the physical body of the Lord Jesus Christ, through His death on an old rugged cross.  “Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” (Heb. 9:22).  In order to REDEEM human beings, Jesus Christ had to become truly human, and through the ONCE for ALL sacrifice of His physical human body and the shedding of His blood, He provided THE WAY for God’s enemies to become RECONCILED to Him. 


When the once enemy of God comes to Him with a TRULY, REPENTANT HEART, and gladly ACCEPTS His gift of SALVATION, they are no longer ALIENATED from Him, but are RECONCILED to Him, and they become JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED, and GLORIFIED.  In other words they are no longer GUILTY of their sins, they are SET-APART for God’s use, and they are HONORED, because of their relationship with Christ, and because He is GLORIFIED, they are GLORIFIED too.


If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have not been RECONCILED to Him, and are considered His enemy, and are ALIENATED from Him.  Your future is looking very bleak and hopeless.  A future that will land you in a place called Hell, a place that is void of God and ANYTHING good.  It is a place of ETERNAL pain, agony, torment, torture, and despair.  However, God is giving you the opportunity to turn away from your sinful lifestyle and to come to Him and be RECONCILED to Him by:  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be RECONCILED, JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED, and GLORIFIED.  Do it NOW while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
