A woman said to me a couple of weeks ago, “I have a maintenance man; I have needs.” I said to her, “What profits a woman to get her needs maintained by a man who is not her husband and lose her soul?”
If our flesh has taken over us now and we are just unwilling to surrender it for Christ, do we really think we will get some superpower then, in the last hour to survive the torture that is to come? Before the seven years of tribulation, things are going to get so bad on earth. Can’t you see how bad it’s getting now? If we’re still here during the tribulation, we will be faced with eternal life or eternal death decisions.
When we have to choose between Jesus and food for our children, will we have already prepared our children for this moment? Will we have lived a life modeling this moment for our children or will we die and go to hell saying, “I have needs and my kids have needs; I’m going to feed my children!”
When a gun is pointed at us because we are Christian, will we say “I will die for Jesus” or “I have to save my life and my kids’ lives” and die and go to hell?
When we are forced by an agenda to worship one way and one god, will we refuse to worship and save our eternal lives or give in and worship an image to save our damned and condemned lives?
Listen, if we refuse to live for Jesus now, we won’t do it then. If we refuse to give up sexual immorality, idolatry, and flesh for Jesus now… we won’t do it then – in the final hour…and God forbid that we should die in our sin…Woe… Dr.J.
Revelation 13:13-18 NIV 13 “And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”
Matthew 16:25 NIV “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.”
