"An URGENT Message!"

“An URGENT Message!”

“The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed; and of this He has given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead.”     Acts 17:30-31

The TIMES of IGNORANCE were the times prior to the coming of JESUS as the SAVIOR of ALL mankind.  The Gentiles, (non-Jews) were, in many cases worshipers of idols, especially the Greeks.  The Apostle Paul was in the process of explaining the pitfalls of idol-worship and the BENEFITS of the WORSHIP of the ALMIGHTY GOD.  In these times of ignorance, God left the sins of mankind unpunished, He was patient with them, and they were given opportunities to BELIEVE in Him through their FAITH in Him.

But NOW, He COMMANDS ALL people EVERYWHERE to REPENT of their sins, by coming to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, by way of the CROSS of CALVARY, for the FORGIVENESS of their sins.  This is an URGENT MESSAGE, especially for those who have NOT given their HEART and LIFE to Him.  Because God has FIXED a DAY on which He will judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS.  And they will face JUDGMENT by a Man whom God has appointed, that Man, is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. We can be ASSURED that He is JUST and VERY WELL QUALIFIED to PASS JUDGMENT by the FACT of His RESURRECTION.

He is the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, and He will be FAIR and will JUDGE the world with JUSTICE.  He will bring CONDEMNATION and pass SENTENCE on those who have REJECTED Him and His gift of SALVATION.  They will be SENTENCED to an ETERNITY in HELL with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE after they are there.  However, GOD in His INFINITE MERCY has a plan to RESCUE them from that DESTINY.  But they MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and to TURN to GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS their sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And they MUST BELIEVE, with ALL their HEART, that JESUS died for them, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God.  They MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and receive an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. So, HEED HIS URGENT WARNING: REPENT and BE SAVED!!  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
