"Who Are the Enemies of God?"

“Who Are the Enemies of God?”


For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!        Romans 5:10


Who are the ENEMIES of God?  The ENEMIES of God are those who REBEL against and REJECT God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  They are the COLD, BLACK HEARTED SINNERS, who FIGHT AGAINST God’s Laws.  WE were, and some of you still ARE the ENEMIES of God.   Those who have NOT COME to Him for the FORGIVENESS of their sins, but instead are living in ENMITY against Him. 


God’s plan to RECONCILE His ENEMIES, is carried out by the SACRIFICIAL DEATH of His ONLY SON, Jesus Christ.  To RECONCILE is to make FRIENDLY again.  It is God’s desire to bring RECONCILIATION to His ENEMIES.  To change them from; His ENEMIES to His CHILDREN, from SINNERS to SAINTS.  RECONCILIATION is the BASIS of a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP between God and mankind.  RECONCILIATION is the REMOVAL of the ENMITY, which separates God from mankind.  Therefore, before mankind can be RECONCILED to God, they MUST COME to the CROSS for the SALVATION of their SOULS, and to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  This is the FATE of God’s ENEMIES.


Jesus Christ died for His ENEMIES, verse eight, tells us that:  “While we were still SINNERS, Christ died for us.”  And now, since we are RECONCILED to God, through the DEATH of His Son, how much more shall we be SAVED through His life!  We are not speaking of His earthly life, but His life in Heaven, where He is EVER INTERCEDING for US.  What kind of LOVE is it that a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD, would RECONCILE and bring SALVATION to His ENEMIES, and accomplish it through the AGONIZING, TORTUROUS DEATH of His ONE and ONLY SON?  Are you STILL living in ENMITY against God and His Son?


If you are, you are headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE once you are there.   God is offering you His RECONCILIATION, IF you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO HIM, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and STOP being the ENEMY of God and BECOME the CHILD of GOD.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
