It is Time for YOU to make a Choice!
YOU can no longer “ride the fence.” Either you are for the Lord and for the truth of His Word, or you are for Satan. There is no “in between,” no “neutral ground,” no “compromise.” Either the Lord Jesus Christ is your Savior and Master, or you are taking orders from Satan, the enemy of the Lord and the enemy of all that is right and good and clean and holy and righteous. YOU are in one camp or the other, whether you like it or not, and whether you believe it or not!
How do I know this to be true? Because the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has declared it to be so…..
“He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad,” Matthew 12:30. See also Luke 11:23.
On the other hand, those who have from their heart chosen to place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior have NOTHING to fear from the future.
“For he that is not against us is on our part,” Mark 9:40. See also Luke 9:50.
“Because thou hast kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth,” Revelation 3:10.
And NOW the time has come for YOU to make a choice! I mean NOW! A few more days and it will be too late! You will have missed your opportunity! Where do you really want to spend your eternity? With the Lord and His people in eternal joy and blessing? Or with Satan and his angels in eternal torment?
In order to help and encourage every person reading this to make the right choice, I am attaching two Bible studies which set forth the two eternal destinations
for every human being who is presently living on the face of this earth. YOU WILL spend eternity in one place of the other. CHOOSE WISELY and CHOOSE NOW!
May our gracious God grant you His GRACE to make the right choice is my prayer. If any reader needs spiritual help, please contact me. I will do whatever I can to help you find salvation and peace through our Lord Jesus Christ.
