Global Warning!

 

 

No Al, we are not talking about global warming or climate change, we are speaking about the warnings we have all been given in the Word of God.

The first word of the Gospel is REPENT!  Matthew 4:17  “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Is it not baffling to think we are more concerned about something that may happen over several thousand years?  What if the earth warms one degree?

Big deal!  A sure thing is that all will someday die and stand before the eternal God.  We will be judged as law breakers!  If you doubt this take a quick look

at the Ten Commandments.  The first is to love God with our heart, mind and soul.  Then, as Jesus put it, the second is like unto the first, love thy neighbor

as thyself.  Not a good start for people that are set on self worship, greed and disobedience of every kind.  We are told not to steal or covet, lust or commit

adultery.  Not a pleasant picture for any of us.  That is why the warning to repent and trust what Jesus Christ paid on the cross for all who will repent of their

sins.  Instead of becoming angry, one should be grateful that there is a warning.  It is simple and clear, all of mankind needs to repent.  You have been warned!

The warning is to repent or perish.  How about you?  Will you repent and turn to Jesus?  It is the only hope for eternal life.
