No Apology

No Apology…

Where will you spend eternity?

Jesus the Messiah declared, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” – John 14:6.

Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, and He made no apology for this truth. According to Jesus of Nazareth, there is no other religion, creed, philosophy, or faith that will open the door way of heaven and allow us to enter into the eternal presence of God the Father.

Jesus Christ declared that He, Himself, was the Door into heaven, and He made no apology for this truth: “I Am the door of the sheep” – John 10:7.

Peter preached without apology: “Repent, therefore, and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” – Acts 3:19. Everyone must repent and believe in Jesus Christ in order to go to heaven.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, and He rose again from the dead on the third day. All who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as their God and Savior will be saved:

“That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes to righteousness and with the mouth confession is made to salvation” – Romans 10:9-10.

If we die without forgiveness of sins through the Lord Jesus Christ, then we will go to Hell.

Hell is real.

Without apology, Jesus Christ taught the truth about Hell and warned us of its eternal torment – Luke 16:19 -31. All who will not repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Hell’s flames.

Jesus Christ died on the cross to appease God’s wrath for our sins, so we would not have to go to Hell.

No one has to be eternally damned. The Lord Jesus Christ paid the price on the cross for our sins; by faith in Jesus Christ alone, we can escape eternal damnation.

The God of heaven and earth is a gracious God, but He does not tolerate rebellion – allegiance to Satan and his kingdom. By rejection Christ, every human being is worshiping Satan whether they are aware of it or not – Revelation 13. All unbelievers are under his power and authority – Ephesians 2:1-3. The Lord God of heaven and earth has no rival, and He is a jealous God. He gave no apology when He declared this truth concerning Himself to all of us: “I am the LORD, and there is no other besides me: and there are no gods. I’m strengthening you, although you have not acknowledged me, so that from the sun’s rising to the west people may know that there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other” – Isaiah 45:5-7 (ISV). He is the holy God. He is the just God. He is the Judge of our souls: “It is appointed to men once to die but after this the judgment” – Hebrews 9:27.

Our sins are rebellion against God’s holiness, righteousness, and sovereignty. Our sins are evil. We are evil. God is holy. His holiness demands that justice be served upon the souls of all who sin against His laws – His Word and His Truth.

Mankind is sinful, lost, self-absorbed, and in rebellion against the God of the Bible. Man’s future is bleak to say the least. However, there is Hope, and Hope’s name is Jesus Christ. He can save us from our sins if we repent and believe in Him.

Hell is not going to be a place where unbelievers are going to party. On the contrary, Hell is where there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth” – Luke 13:28. Jesus taught that Hell was a place where the “worm does not die and the fire is not quenched” – Mark 9:44-48.

According to our Lord Jesus, Hell is a real place. In Hell, the worms don’t die, and the fire never goes out.

I don’t know anyone who would like to take a bath in a tub full of flesh eating worms.

I don’t know anyone who enjoys being burned.

Eternal Hell is not going to be a party place; it is a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth – eternal pain and suffering.

In contrast, heaven is a place of glory, joy, peace, perfection, beauty, life, excellence, happiness, purpose, satisfaction, worship, blessedness, wealth, splendor, power, meaning, and, most of all, it is where all who know Jesus Christ as their God and Savior will be in His presence forever!

I pray that you will understand where you will spend eternity.

I pray that you will know the love, mercy, and grace of the Lord God.

I pray that you will repent, believe, and follow Jesus Christ.

God bless you.

What The Heavens Declare

“The Heavens declare the glory of God and

the firmament shows His handiwork…” –

Psalm 19:1

 

The Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light years wide and 1,000 light years deep. Our solar system is traveling at 515,000 mph in the Milky way. The earth’s mean velocity is 66,600 mph! It orbits around the sun in perfect harmony with the sun’s gravitational pull; century after century the earth has never veered off course! It never draws closer to or further from the sun – the earth’s average distance remains approximately 93,000,000 miles from this burning star. At 1070 mph, the earth rotates on its 23.5 degree axis; spring, summer, fall, and winter are the result of the earth’s 23.5 degree tilt and orbit around the sun.

Milky Way wikipedia.org

So, at 1070 mph the earth rotates on its axis, at 66,600 mph it orbits the sun, and at 515,000 mph it moves within the Milky Way without colliding with other planets and stars! In regard to the earth, there is perfect harmony in our solar system unlike LA traffic! The earth is shielded by divine design!

There are billions and billions of galaxies in our universe and all of these galaxies are united in a chorus – in a proclamation that has been repeated for multiple millennia since the beginning of time. Every single star and planet of every single galaxy in this vast universe is proclaiming one thing.

Consider these universal facts:

“The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory” – Psalm 97:2

“The heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Himself. Selah” – Psalm 50:6

“Drop down ye heavens from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation,  and let righteousness spring up together; I, the LORD, have created it” – Isaiah 45:8

God’s righteousness is revealed through His creation; righteousness is the result of a continuum of righteous order; i.e., at no point either  in thought, heart, speech, or deed is there a lapse of absolute good (good as defined by the Creator) in the God of the Bible.

Righteousness is defined by God:

“And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” – Deuteronomy 4:8

“Thy judgments are true and righteous all together. More to be desired are they than gold, yea than much fine gold: sweeter also than the honey and the honeycomb” Psalm 19:9-10

“Mine eyes fail for your salvation and for the word of thy righteousness” – Psalm 119:123

“Thy testimonies that you have commanded are righteous and very faithful” – Psalm 119:138

“The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live” – Psalm 119:144

“My tongue shall speak of thy word, for all thy commandments are righteous” – Psalm 119:172

The Scriptures teach us that God’s written Word is righteous, and we learn righteousness from reading His written Word: “All Scripture is given by inspiration from God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” – 2 Timothy 3:16.

What does His written Word teach us about His righteousness? God says, “So as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you that are at Rome also. For, I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes – to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written: the just shall live by faith” – Romans 1:15-17.

The “righteousness of God is revealed” in the Gospel of Christ! “The Heavens declare the righteousness of God!”

The heavens are speaking, lovingly shouting, and blasting out at the tops of their voices that Jesus Christ is both God and Savior!

Every single star and planet of every galaxy in this vast universe is declaring that Jesus Christ is both God and Savior of the world

If one studies the cosmos and does not come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ is LORD, then that study and its conclusion are flawed – each is a lie.

There is only one honest, true, and factual conclusion that can be gained from a thorough and ongoing study of the origin of the universe – Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins according to the Scriptures, He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, He ascended into heaven where He presently sits at the right hand of the Father, He presently governs the universe including all mankind in all the nations on earth, and He will one day return to this earth to physically establish His kingdom on it.

Whoever repents of their sins and believes in Jesus Christ will be saved from eternal damnation in hell and receive everlasting life.

True science incorporates faith in the Creator, Jesus Christ, who has revealed the origin of the universe.
