The is a war raging for the hearts of man. Battle lines have been drawn. Whose side are you on?
Before you decide you need to know that this is not a “shooting” war. Our weapons are not steel and the power is not ours.
Satan is on one side with a horde of demonic forces. His weapons are deception, guile, lies and even possession. Jesus and the angelic host is on the other side. His weapon is the Word of God, powered by the Holy Spirit.
We know who will ultimately win. It’s a forgone conclusion predicted thousands of years ago by One who is in all time. The question is, again, whose side are you on?
Many think they are on God’s side, yet they are deceived. Jesus will say to them, “Get away from me you worker of lawlessness.” Whose side are you on?
Do you long for righteousness? Or are you still pushing the enemies agenda? Well, it seems fair, or it’s the right thing to do. Beware, many things seem right to man, but their end is destruction.
Do you desire fellowship with God’s people or do they seem too prudish and old fashioned? Remember, Jesus is as He always was. His Word will not change just because society (pushed by Satan) has changed. If it was sin 200 years ago, it’s still sin today!
Who’s side are you on. Do not be deceived by the crowds and by massive churches preaching something that will give you benefits. Remember, wide is the way unto destruction, and many are the ones following it. But narrow is the way to life, and few are the ones who will find this path.
Who’s side are you on? You must decide. I can’t make the choice for you. Your parent’s or your children can’t make the choice for you. Your husband or your wife cannot make the choice for you. Only you can decide.
Final note. No decision, is a decision for Satan. All have sinned, including you, and me, and fall short. The wages of sin is DEATH. BUT: God has extended pardon and forgiveness to all who will follow Jesus. It is the free gift available to every human alive. But it is a gift that you must accept, under God’s terms.
What are those terms? Unconditional surrender to the love and Grace of Jesus. Jesus said that if we love Him then We will follow His commands. It will not be easy. He promised that we would have trouble in this world, but the alternative is unthinkable.
What do you do? Repent. Acknowledge that you are a sinner. We all are, but few will actually admit it. Most say that they are good enough. No one is good enough, ever. You must accept this. Anything else is rebellion against God and will not result in Salvation. So, acknowledge your sinful condition and plead for forgiveness. God is waiting for your plea. He will forgive anyone who sincerely comes to Him asking. Not a “Lord, I don’t want to go to hell” asking, but a sincere “Lord I am a sinner” plea. None of us wants to die in our sins and pay that price but few people will actually humble themselves to admit that they NEED Jesus for His salvation.
The war is raging. Who’s side are you on?
