"Without Excuse!"

“Without Excuse!”



The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities---His eternal power and divine nature---have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.        Romans 1:18-20


The Almighty God is HOLY and RIGHTEOUS, and He despises ALL the godlessness and wickedness of the people, He created.  He HATES the sin, but LOVES the sinner and it is because of the rebellious nature of mankind that God‘s wrath was being and will be revealed from Heaven. 


The Apostle Paul was writing to the Christians in Rome, concerning the condemnation upon the sinful, pagan world.  The sinful, wicked people who were suppressing the truth with their godlessness and wickedness were going to come under the condemnation of an ANGRY God.


All that may be known about God is PLAIN to them, because He has made it PLAIN to them through ALL of His creation.  His invisible qualities---His ETERNAL POWER and DIVINE NATURE--- is made evident to mankind.  God’s creation is SOOO evident of His POWER and NATURE, when you look around you and see the clouds that produce the rain, the trees that provides the oxygen we breathe, the food we eat, and so much more AMAZING things that are here to help sustain us.  We KNOW there has to be a creator, but KNOWING and HONORING Him are two different things.  This was the message that Paul was telling the Christians in Rome. 


People KNEW of God, but they refused to HONOR Him with their OBEDIENCE and chose to live in their godlessness and wickedness, and ignore the ONE who holds ALL THINGS in His hands. 


And so it is today, people are living in their godlessness and wickedness and ignoring the very existence of ALMIGHTY GOD.  Oh, they KNOW of Him, but they DON’T KNOW Him.  They have NOT come to Him, ACKNOWLEDGING Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, seeking His FORGIVENESS, but are living in their own sinful, corrupt, depraved, godless, wicked world, and they will stand before Him one day, WITHOUT EXCUSE, and will spend an ETERNITY in HELL, the place of torment, torture, heartache and despair.

Are you part of those people who KNOW OF GOD, but don’t really KNOW GOD?  If you have NEVER come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, seeking His FORGIVENESS, then you are a part of the godless, wicked, sinful people.  However, God is giving you the opportunity NOW to turn away from your godlessness and wickedness, and to turn TO Him.  You do that 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 NOT just KNOWING OF Him, but KNOW Him PERSONALLY.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
