Summary: There are two appointments you can keep and two you will keep.


A) God has made some appointments with every person in this world!

* In fact, there are four appointments that God has made with everybody that I want to preach on

this morning. * Two of theses appointments you can keep ... Two of them you will keep!

* Let’s consider these appointments today .......

(1) CONVERSION! * Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may ...”

* John 6:44 “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:”

* John 6:65 “... no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.”

* Young truck driver killed ... Old man in Ozark Mountains in Arkansas .......

* Prov. 29:1 “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, ...”

A) What is a conversion? * Not reformation ... Not joining a church ... Not baptism ...

* It is a turning about ... It’s a change ... It means to repent and turn – Isa. 55:7 .......

* “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto

the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

B) What is man’s part in this? * Conditional ... Rom. 10:9-10; 13 “That if thou shalt ...”

* What will be the results? * Salvation and power ... A changed life!

C) What if I put it off and wait ... Or what if I cancel this appointment?

* If you do, you may lose all hope of ever being converted!

* Prov. 1:23-31 “Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make

known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand,

and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as

desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon

you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall

not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.”

* Isa. 55:6 “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:”

(2) THE LORD’S DAY! * Psa. 122:1 “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into .......”

A) People are proving every day that they don’t have to keep this appointment!

* “Preacher, what’s so important about the Lord’s Day?”

B) Well, first of all, you have an appointment to worship God on the Lord’s Day!

* John 4:23-24 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the

Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and

they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

C) Second: You have an appointment to be spiritually fed!

* In 1 Cor. 3:1-2, Paul speaks of being fed with milk and meat of the Word of God!

* Acts 20:7 “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread,

Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until ...”

* These things help us to grow in Christ!

D) Now you can cancel this appointment too, if you want to!

* These 2 you can keep if you want to ... The next 2 you will keep ... God will hold you to them!

(3) DEATH! * All will keep this appointment ... No one is excluded!

A) The emphasis in this verse is the word “once!” * Men die but one time!

* They do not die and then come back to earth to live and die a second time!

* If you can only do this once, then you had better do it right!

* Ecc. 3:1-2 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die;”

B) Death is a reality ... It is a terrible truth ... A horrible certainty!

* I hate death, but I have sense enough not to deny the reality of it! * You have seen death .......
