If you don't study your bible and hear the preached word. You will hear only what you want to hear. In my last message, we talked about preparing to receive the blessing of God. Today I want to tell you about the WRATH of God. Yes, God is loving and kind to all mankind everywhere. But, God is also known for His Wrath, it's fierce and it's final. As well as you prepare to receive God's blessing, you must also prepare to face His Wrath. Workers of iniquity what is your defense or what is your excuse? If you have accepted Christ as your personal Savior, Christ has saved you from the wrath to come. No matter who you are or how rich you might be, if you are out of the ark of safety, you will face God's Wrath. All men were born in sin, but there is a way to overcome sin and be saved. Upon the profession of your faith in Jesus Christ, it will make the difference for you at the day of judgement. You must be born again and believe in the saving (atoning) work that Christ did at Calvary. Not just for you, but for everyone. The bible gives testimony of Christ being, first, the Son of God and the Savior of the world. Christ must be the foundation of your belief in God. "No Christ, No God." "Know Christ, Know God." Get the picture? God's Wrath is as real as God's Love. Unbelief is a sure way to face God's Wrath.
I want you to see the love and mercy of God at work (in action), God has given of Himself to save mankind from His Wrath. In the bible (KJV), Revelation 21:5-8. "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things: I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all lairs, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
You have a choice, be born again, become a son of God and receive salvation freely or face the Wrath of God, which is the second death. The water of life is for the repentant soul. Overcoming the wrath of God is up to you, don't delay, do it today...
