It is told that an US warship during a storm and rough seas in the Atlantic Ocean saw a blip on its radar. The captain was told that there was a radio message requesting the ship should turn fifteen degrees north for safe passage. The captain of the warship was defiant as he was in command of one of the biggest US warships. He radioed back saying that he was the Captain of the USS Nebraska and that the other party must change course fifteen degrees south to avoid a collision. The other party came back stating he cannot move. The US warships captain also threatened the other party that he will do anything in his power to ensure the safety of his ship. The answer came back over the radio “This is the light house, it’s your move”.
How true this is with mankind that they are on a collision course with death and afterwards the judgment of God. In the normal course of the world they never realize to where they are heading. Everyone who is alive has this appointment with death. Most people put the subject of death away from their thoughts. No one likes to die. Death is inevitable. Death came in because of sin. Eze. 18:4. Every human being has an appointment with death. After that they have to see God on His judgment throne. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ. There is an escape plan from eternal death. This plan was set in motion before the foundations of the world was laid. In order for man to receive eternal life their sins have to be forgiven. Genuine repentance comes from the heart once a person realizes their sinful state.
Do you want to escape the wrath to come? Come to Jesus. See Him on the cross and believe that He took the punishment of your sin in His body. Are you ready to meet God? God is a loving God but He is a consuming fire also. Deut. 4:24, Heb. 12:29. Hell fire is reserved for all those who are refusing to believe. God will be the righteous judge. You can escape the judgment to come. Heb. 2:3. It is up to you to change the course of your life and find God, before you face Him as the judge. 2Cor. 6:2. He is the beacon beckoning you to be safe in His arms. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and The Life. John 14:6. AMEN DJ
