SAVED — WHY BOTHER? BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY

June 28, 2010

SHOULD DEATH SUDDENLY STRIKE, IS THERE ANY THOUGHT CONCERNING THE AFTERLIFE? THESE PHYSICAL BODYS ARE TEMPORAL THEY WILL DIE. WHEN LIFE LEAVES THE BODY, WHERE DOES IT GO?

UNDER THESE WORLD CONDITIONS SUCH AS THEY ARE, ESPECIALLY THE EARTH’S BLOOD SPEWING INTO THE OCEAN, WE AS CITIZENS OF THE WORLD ARE FACING A CATASTROPHE OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS. THEREFORE, WE FACE THE UNSEEN POSSIBILITY OF DEATH, THAT IS A FACT WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT.

WE WORK HARD DURING OUR LIVES PREPARING FOR LIFE WITH A FAMILY, AND WE TAKE THIS RESPONSIBILITY VERY SERIOUSLY. SHOULD WE NOT BE JUST AS SERIOUS ABOUT WHAT COMES TO US AT THE SECESSION FROM THESE BODIES? SHOULDN’T WE BE EARNESTLY SEEKING TO BE “SAVED” FROM ANY HORRORS WHICH MAY COME IN THE AFTERWORLD?

IN THIS WORLD, WE LIVE A PHYSICAL LIFE, MATERIALISTIC, WHEN LIFE LEAVES, WE ENTER INTO A SPIRITUAL STATE OF BEING. SHOULD WE NOT BE PREPARING FOR THIS CHANGE OVER, WHICH COULD COME TO ANY OF US BEFORE WE CLOSE OUR EYES TONIGHT IN SLEEP?

LIFE IS VERY UNSURE, AND CAN LEAVE INSTANTLY. I HAVE A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE – MY SON AND HIS FATHER – IN LAW.

JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO MY SON, HIS WIFE, HER PARENTS, MOTHER AND FATHER WENT TO THEIR SMALL BUT BEAUTIFUL LAKESIDE RETREAT FOR THE WEEK END. IT WAS LATE IN THE EVENING, AND THEY WERE SITTING IN THE SIDE ROOM FACING THE LAKE, AND THE SUN WAS SETTING FOR THE EVENING, AND THE LAKE WAS ARTISTIC IN BEAUTY.

AS THEY WERE SITTING THERE PASSING THE TIME OF DAY, AND COMMENTING ON THE BEAUTY OF THE LAKE, MY SON’S FATHER – IN LAW SUDDENLY GAVE A COUPLE OF SMALL GAGGING TYPES OF COUGHS, AND FELL BACK IN HIS CHAIR DEAD. IN THE MATTER OF JUST TWO OR THREE MINUTES, HE WENT FROM LIFE TO DEATH, RIGHT BEFORE EVERYBODY’S EYES.

THEY CREMATED HIS BODY, AND ON FATHER’S DAY SPREAD HIS ASHES OVER THE LAKE THAT HE SO LOVED. ONE INSTANT ALIVE, THE NEXT HE WAS IN THE “OTHER WORLD.” ONE DAY ALL WAS NORMAL, AND A FEW DAYS LATER, HAVING HIS ASHES SPREAD IN THE WATERS OF THE LAKE.

THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU, ME, ANY BODY WHO IS STILL AT THIS MOMENT ALIVE. WHERE BEST TO GO FOR ADVICE ON THIS RESPONSIBILITY, OTHER THAN GOD’S WORD. WHICH PERTAINS TO BEING “SAVED.”

THERE ARE A GREAT MANY SCRIPTURES PERTAINING TO BEING “SAVED,” TOO MANY TO COMMENT ON. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT WANTING LIFE ETERNAL, ONE FREE FROM ALL SIN, THEN YOU WILL TAKE THE TIME TO STUDY CLOSELY ALL WHICH PERTAIN TO THIS VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT OF LIFE. YOUR NEXT BREATH MAY BE YOUR LAST.

AT THE PRESENT TIME WE ARE THREATENED BY EARTHQUAKES, TSUNAMIES, TOXIC RAIN, OIL COATED OCEAN WAVES, HURRICANS, INSANITY CAUSED BY THE ABOVE, NOT TO MENTION THE EVER PRESENT DANGER FROM MURDER BY ROBBERS, AUTO ACCIDENTS, FOOD POISONING, DISEASES BEYOND DESCRIPTION.

LIFE IS EXTREMELY FRAGILE AT THIS POINT IN TIME, THEREFORE ONE WHO IS WISE WILL BE THINKING ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE, AND TRYING TO PREPARE IN ADVANCE FOR IT.

ONLY ONE GOD – JEHOVAH, AND BY HE AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, CAN ONE BE SAVED, THERE IS NO OTHER DOOR.

BEING “SAVED” IS A VERY SIMPLE UNCOMPLICATED PROCEDURE. NO LONG HOURS OF HARD STUDY OF THE SCRIPTURES IS NEEDED.

ROMANS 10:9-10
YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, “JESUS IS LORD,” AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED.

FOR IT IS WITH YOUR HEART THAT YOU BELIEVE AND ARE JUSTIFIED, AND IT IS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT YOU CONFESS AND ARE SAVED.
