A Calm Voice Among the Shouting
As I’ve watched the events unfold lately about the predicted ” judgement day“, I’ve watched as people on both sides have loudly and passionately argued their opinions. I feel that today, there needs to be a calm voice to speak to those who are maybe anxious about all of this talk about the world ending tomorrow. The source of their anxiety might be that they are not ready to see the end. My point here is not to argue whether Mr. Camping is wrong or not, however I do have my opinions. I do want to talk for a moment to those who are not be ready for the end of the world.
There are several facts that are important about the end of time. The first is that only God in heaven knows when it will take place(Matthew 24: 36). The second fact is that all human beings are sinners and that sin separates us from God(Romans 3:23). The third fact is that there is a judgement day coming (Hebrews 9:27) that we all must face.
There is a remedy to the problem of sin that has separated us from a Holy God. That remedy is not a pill or some other kind of quick fix. the remedy is instead a person. That person is Jesus who came from heaven to this earth, lived a sin free life and died on a cross on the town garbage heap to pay the penalty for our sin. He was buried in a borrowed grave, but today He’s Alive! Jesus wants to bridge the chasm between you and God so that you can spend eternity with him!
All you have to do is talk to Him. Admit that you are a sinner and that you have transgressed His laws. Believe in your heart the facts I’ve shared with you about Jesus. He is the Son of God, He lived a sin free life on this earth, and He died to pay the penalty for your sin. Finally pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you! On the authority of God’s word, who cannot lie, Jesus will come into your heart, fill you with His Spirit, and live inside you. Then you will be able to face all the doomsday predictors with confidence, because you will know where you are going.
If you have prayed and invited Jesus into your heart, then find you a Bible believing church and tell the Pastor what has happened to you. Then get a Bible and start reading the truth for yourself. Rejoice that your name is written in Heaven!
