“Close at Hand”
This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for My Salvation is close at hand, and My Righteousness will soon be revealed. Blessed is the one who does this---the person who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps their hands from doing any evil.” Isaiah 56:1-2
There are certain things that God requires of His Children, those who have truly given their HEART and LIFE to Him. One of those things is to MAINTAIN JUSTICE, this means to KEEP one’s MORAL RIGHTNESS, for the TRUE BELIEVER, it means to LIVE by FAITH, and NOT by the FLESH. This message from God, was for the very devout Jew, those who lived according to GOD’S LAW. However, it stands TRUE for EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, who has embraced God’s Gift of SALVATION, through His Son Jesus Christ. They are to MAINTAIN JUSTICE also, and do what is RIGHT in the Eyes of a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD.
The ones, who will ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST, as their SAVIOR and LORD, are the ones who will reap the BENEFITS of God’s SALVATION. That is, they will experience what SALVATION is ALL about: SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE from their SINFUL LIFESTYLE, which is dragging them into the pits of HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, for ALL of ETERNITY. But along with the SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE from their SINS, they will be able to ESCAPE HELL, and GAIN HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS for ALL of ETERNITY. This act of SALVATION will be COMPLETED at the time of the RAPTURE. Those who have SALVATION, experiences, first, being DELIVERED from their SINS. Secondly, they have VICTORY over their SINS, daily. And third, is the COMPLETION of their SALVATION, when they are taken to their ETERNAL HOME, HEAVEN, where there is NO MORE SIN. And the LORD says, this is CLOSE at HAND!
And at that time, they will experience the FULL IMPACT of GOD RIGHTEOUSNESS. He tells us that those who HOLDS FAST to their SALVATION, and doesn’t take it lightly, but will HONOR their times of WORSHIP, for the GENTILE BELIEVERS, that is on the FIRST DAY of the WEEK, SUNDAY. For the JEWS it is called the SABBATH. Sunday, is set aside for MEETING TOGETHER, WORSHIPING TOGETHER, and FELLOWSHIPING TOGETHER, as the TRUE CHILDREN of GOD. And, all the more, ENCOURAGING each other as we SEE the DAY of the LORD approaching. (Heb. 10:25). And we are to KEEP our HANDS from doing ANY EVIL. REMEMBER, the COMPLETION of our SALVATION is CLOSE at HAND! Are you READY?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are destined to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HELL, with NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there. In order to KEEP from going to HELL, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to 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. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, all of which is, CLOSE at HAND. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
