“Do Not DENY Him!”
If we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us. 2 Timothy 2:12
Whoever denies Me before men, I also will deny before My Father Who is in Heaven. Matthew 10:33
In 2 Timothy 2:12, we are told that if we ENDURE, we will reign with Christ, this ENDURANCE, is being able to withstand whatever comes our way, and to WILLINGLY CONFIRM our relationship with Christ, even in times of STRONG PERSECUTION. If my memory is correct, I believe that there was a young lady, at Columbine, who had a gun in her face, and was asked, if she believed in God, her answer was “YES,” then she was shot and killed. But she did NOT DENY her FAITH! There have been MANY people throughout the ages who have faced HORRIBLE situations, and when they were asked if they were a BELIEVER in JESUS CHRIST, and they PROFESSED that they TRULY WERE, they were put to death. And sometimes their children would be HORRIBLY KILLED, before their very eyes. They ENDURED, and did NOT DENY their LORD. And they will REIGN with JESUS, when He returns to set up His Kingdom, here, on earth.
But for those who DENY they KNOW or have a RELATIONSHIP with JESUS CHRIST, in the face of DANGEROUS PERSECUTION, and those who CONTINUALLY DENY and REJECT a RELATIONSHIP with Him, they will be DENIED by CHRIST, in the FINAL JUDGMENT, and will enter an ETERNITY where they will SUFFER ALL the HORRORS of HELL, and they will not be able to ESCAPE, after they are there.
If you are NOT a TRUE BELIEVER and you do NOT have a RELATIONSHIP with JESUS and His Father, GOD, then you are DESTINED for that ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. And your time is RUNNING OUT. You NEED to be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN to GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then 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 with a STRONG STEADFAST FAITH, ENDURE until He RETURNS. DO NOT DENY HIM! Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
