Summary: Are Ready to face 2018 OR GOD?
In approximately 96 hours, or 5760 minutes, or 345,600 seconds, 2017 will be GONE! (James 4:14) “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
2017 will be like steam gone from a Teapot! Just a memory. Let’s pause and STOP THE CLOCK, (just a moment).
• Have we lived as a Christian SHOULD in 2017?
• Have we led someone to Christ?
• Have we served the Lord WELL or is there room to improve?
Are we ready for 2018 OR ETERNITY?
W.A. Bradfield, “The Ant and Eternity” (One grain of sand)
I want to go to Heaven I want YOU to go to Heaven.
Believe that Jesus is the only Begotten Son of God?
(John 8:24) “For if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.”
Repent of your past sins? Jesus said, “(Luke 13:3) “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Unless we repent, we perish. That is the consequence of SIN.
Confess that Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son of God? Jesus said in (Matt 10:32) “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
Be Baptized for the remission of sin, in the Name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost? (1 Peter 3:21) The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
If this was your LAST night, would you want your next words to be WELCOME Ye Blessed or DEPART YE Cursed?
If you are a member of the Church, and tonight sins stand between you and God, “Take It To The Lord In Prayer.” If your sin is known publicly, let us pray with you and FOR you for the forgiveness of sin.
(James 5:16) “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
I told this before BUT it’s worth repeating, Beth told me one night, “Goodnight Hon’, I’ll see you in the morning.” SHE MEANT TO SEE ME IN THE MORNING! SHE SAID SO!
BUT ETERNITY STEPPED IN AND SHE DIED IN HER SLEEP THAT VERY NIGHT!
ETERNITY IS a LONG, LONG TIME TO BE LOST!
Beth was READY, How about YOU?
