“Times of Ignorance”
Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is NOW declaring to men that all people everywhere should REPENT, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead. Acts 17:30-31
Times of IGNORANCE, these times were when the Gentiles were NOT held to the LAWS of GOD, because they were given to the Nation of Israel. And God, in His MERCY and GRACE, and being a JUST GOD, OVERLOOKED the sins of the GENTILES. That is God was PATIENT, and when the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST came about, and PAID the PRICE, for ALL MANKIND to be FORGIVEN of their sins, by the SHED BLOOD of JESUS. They were then held ACCOUNTABLE for their SINS and UNRIGHTEOUSNESS before the ALMIGHTY GOD. This period of time is known as The Day of GRACE. A time where IGNORANCE, about God’s view of an UNREPENTANT HEART, is NO LONGER OVERLOOKED. MANKIND is ACCOUNTABLE for ALL their SINS. And GOD is DECLARING that ALL PEOPLE, EVERYWHERE should REPENT. That is to TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.
The ALMIGHTY GOD, the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, has FIXED a day in which He will JUDGE the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS by a Man, JESUS CHRIST, whom He has appointed, and having furnished PROOF to ALL MANKIND, by RAISING Him from the DEAD. God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS can ONLY be obtained THROUGH a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with His SON, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do NOT have such a RELATIONSHIP with HIM, you are DOOMED to spend ALL ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there. You MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and come out of those TIMES of IGNORANCE, because you are NOW ACCOUNTABLE for your SINS, and you will be JUDGED. Do this NOW, while you still can, and let your ETERNITY be in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
