When It’s Over, It’s Over



Greetings My friends’ grace and peace to you in the name of God our Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit. I thank God for you my friends because God has given me this wonderful opportunity to reach out and encourage you just as I am encouraged by you. The work that is before us is of an urgent nature because it concerns eternity and life in Heaven or Hell. The reason it’s so important is there is a criterion that must be met before it is over, and you can only find it in Jesus Christ. We must use the word of God and our knowledge there of to tear down the wall  that obscures the understanding and prevents the lost from receiving salvation  because after you die its too late, Lord Please help me to express the urgency of salvation and encourage my brothers and Sister to stay the course and get the word out to as many people as possible, so that they will know time is running out and when it is over, it is over. Thank you Lord Amen.

My friends remember we were once in the same frame of mind as those who don’t know Christ concerning their salvation. We could not see beyond that which we could not humanly understand. The truth is and has always been right in front of us and we could not comprehend it. We were eager to reject the truth and turn it into a lie, defying God who created us to serve and worship Him. Even after God warned us from the beginning Genesis 2:16-17 (NASB)
16 The LORD God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” The father of lies appeared and told Adam and Eve our parents that God was in effect lying. Genesis 3:4-5 (NASB)
4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!
5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Since all people came from these two what ever decision they made, we made also because we were in them when they sinned and disobeyed God. Romans 5:12 (NASB)
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
This explains how we got into this mess, we didn’t believe God. It’s not complicated, it’s simple to understand. The problem is we are willing to accept the lie instead of the truth, in an effort to satisfy our own desires to be independent of God and be Gods ourselves. In other words, we want to do our own thing, and not have to answer to anyone but ourselves. God is the only independent being in existence. He is not dependent on anyone outside of Himself for anything. Everyone and everything that exist is dependent upon God for their very existence.

God is Holy, He is spiritually pure, there is no darkness in Him at all. He must destroy sin, God will destroy sin and all those who live according to its’ ways. God’s Holiness demands that He destroy sin. God developed a plan before He created the world to save us from the destruction and retribution that He must take to eradicate sin from this world and at the same time save the creatures He created. God loves us so much, that He gave the life of His Son to pay the penalty of our Sin. God won’t force you to be saved, evern though He is fully capable of doing so. God wants you to want to be saved. God wants you to love Him of your own free will. I remember an old saying that It’s not over until it is over. This brings us full circle, in John 3:16 Jesus said God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life. This is a very serious matter, you have to make a decision. What you decide is going to determine where you are going to spend eternity, in Heaven or Hell. There is no middle ground. There is no purgatory, there is no sense in anyone praying for you once you are dead.

Be of good cheer !!!, We serve a wonderfully great and merciful God, whose love is infinite, His mercy endures forever. He has issued out His grace in abundance. He is all powerful, no one can take you out of His hands, He will not abandon you. His generosity is unmatched by anyone. His kindness is unmatched and His wrath you don’t want to experience. No one knows the time when the end of our lives will come, if you think that you will be able to believe just before your time is up you are playing a serious game of chance with your life, there is no reason other than the grace of God that the end cannot come upon you now. Unless Jesus returns to us we will go to Him, or to immediate suffering. It is urgent that you decide now, once it is over it will be too late. When it’s over, it’s over, but God out of His great love, and mercy wants to give salvation to you right now. Here is the key to open the gift John 5:24 (NASB)
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. This is God’s word, do you believe God ? or do you believe the lie that echos through the centuries from the father of lies, saying if your good deeds out way your bad deeds God who is a just God will have to give you eternal life. Don’t believe that nonsense. Stop, Look, Listen. There is only one name given under Heaven whereby men shall be saved, that name is Jesus. Amen !!! Thank You Lord.
