551 YOUR LAST DAY!

Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

The sad truth is that hardly anyone knows when their times will come to depart from this life and go on into eternity.

We live such a fragile existence where even a slight jar or bump could lead to our demise.

There is recorded history of those who have simply fallen down and never recover to health again.

There is billions of dollars and countless hours spent in preaching, teaching, and acting out safety procedures as we try to live out our daily lives, just so we can do….what? Get more money, buy more stuff, eat more surgery foods, drive faster and more dangerously, or relax in front of our computers and televisions!

This life is but a few short years; 70, 80, 90, 100, or, even 110, but eternity is millions, billions, trillions, and more

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

This should not be a revelation to us but today IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! It could also be the LAST! Then what?

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

So, we live our entire life to satisfy our soul IN THIS LIFE without any thought for the next. How can anyone say they are prepared to die and not have investigated where they are going and what will be there, waiting for them?

What is this ‘judgment’ that God spoke of?

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Even those who believe in God and an afterlife, have a hard time believing that there is a continual death and dying because of a neutral life lived. Unfortunately, they fail to ask God what and how they are to feel, think, and act, as He wants them to.

Revelation 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

SO, WE WERE CREATED TO DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN LIVE OUT OUR LIVES IN WHATEVER PLEASURE WE SO DESIRED! Yes, God does require us to love and obey Him.

He doesn’t hen-peck us all day long. He has given us His son, Jesus Christ, and His word, and sent them via His people to instruct us of His desire for us.

WE live out OUR lives, as WE want to, get to the end of OUR DAYS, then expect God to save OUR SOUL!

We don’t even want to have an input into our eternal home until we get to judgment, so how can we think God is going to simply look the other way about our selfishness?

What is that? You did nothing wrong.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

What is that? You went to church, prayed, did not swear, paid your tithe, and did everything you thought you should do so, you should not be at the judgment.

1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1 Peter 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

This could be your last day. Do you want to leave it with these questions unanswered?

WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY?

1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Better find out, from the one who knows; Jesus Christ, God’s son AND OUR SAVIOUR!

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
