Just think about it:
You are alive! Even after ALL your rejection of your MAKER and HIS WORD through whom He made everything, you still are here!! Well then,
GOD MUST BE VERY LONGSUFFERING!
And if He is that way with you, so that you still have time to be reconciled to Him, can you begrudge His patient mercy to someone else? Or do you wish He would immediately kill that person and cast them into hell?
Be very careful! Because if you persist in thoughts like this, God may let the very thing that you are thinking happen to you; for He is NO respecter of persons. He is absolutely righteous and just when He judges. And ALL stand condemned before Him, with only the degree of punishment to be weighed out. For ALL have sinned and fall short of HIS GLORY and GRACE.
But AREN'T YOU GLAD that HE HAS CHOSEN TO WAIT THIS LONG FOR YOU, so He might show you His wonderful loving mercy? If you would just turn to Him and place your trust in His Beloved Son, who suffered and gave His very life's blood for you, God has promised to save you. He will then share with you the precious life of His Own, NOW RESURRECTED, and Much Loved Son, Yeshua.
But if you keep rejecting the Love of His Son, Yeshua, His DELIGHT, you will then forever bewail the day that you turned away from HIS offer of forgiveness and reconciliation. God has declared that Everlasting Fire was made for the Devil and his angels, and that the blood of Yeshua was given for the sins of the WHOLE world. So if you should happen to wake up some day soon and find yourself in a place of torment, don't blame God. He has promised you and informed you in advance of the terms of full pardon and reconciliation, ... but you have persisted in rejecting Him and His Son, and going your own way.
Beware!!! God says that though there may seem many right ways to men, the end of each of these deceitful ways is the eternal lake of fire, joining with the Deceiver.
The only path that leads back to Him is YESHUA, who said I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. No one comes to the FATHER except by Me.
God is waiting. The Holy angels are waiting. The Spirit says COME! All God's people say COME! Please do not delay. You may not live to see the light of another day. IT IS YESHUA, who, in His patient mercy, gives you each heartbeat. PLEASE do NOT delay. Turn from ALL sin and trust Him, your MAKER and SAVIOUR, with your life TODAY.
REALLY GOOD NEWS:
NOW, HE IS THE SINNERS FRIEND!
If you will take the Father's Beloved Son as your Saviour and Lord, you will know the love of the Father too. He has promised to never leave you or forsake you, if you will accept His Delight, His Son, ... and love Him.
And as you trust in Yeshua, He will help you, by His Holy Spirit that will indwell you, to know and to do all His will, even all that He has commanded in Holy Scriptures.
With all God's angels, worship Him. Yeshua is Judge of all.
But beware of any group, like the Moonies, Mormons or the Jehovah Witnesses, or any church, Roman Catholic or Protestant, that claims you MUST use their special literature or teaching IN ORDER TO correctly understand God's Word, the Bible. Yeshua said His Spirit would teach you the scriptures if you would receive a love for the truth and want to really love HIM and OBEY His Word, NOT just debate it, ... and give true friends too.
Will you accept the Messiah, God's Son, Yeshua, as Saviour and Lord of your life? Yeshua is soon coming with myriads of angels in blazing fire to reward those who love His Father, and bring justice to those who hate Him. LOVE & OBEY HIM or hate HIM? You choose ...
Why not bow your heart and whole self before God right now and ask Him to forgive you for all your rejection of His Beloved Son. And then take Yeshua to be your Lord and Saviour, and start to follow Him and deny yourself.
Trust in Him! You too will delightfully discover that HE IS THE FAITHFUL FRIEND! Your parents may fail you, your husband or wife may leave you, your children may spurn you, your friends may let you down, BUT YESHUA WILL NEVER FAIL OR FORSAKE YOU!
And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, (Exodus 34:6)
The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. (Psalms 9:17; Luke 12:5)
For the LORD your God [is] God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:
Then Peter opened [his] mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: (Deuteronomy 10:17; Acts 10:34)
[He is] the Rock, his work [is] perfect: for all his ways [are] judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right [is] he. (Deuteronomy 32:4)
For [there is] not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. (Ecclesiastes 7:20)
Howbeit thou [art] just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly: (Nehemiah 9:33)
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23)
And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD [is] a God of judgment: blessed [are] all they that wait for him. (Isaiah 30:18)
And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. Behold, God [is] my salvation [YESHUA]; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [is] my strength and [my] song; he also is become my salvation [YESHUA]. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation [YESHUA].
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (Isaiah 12:1-3; John 3:16)
(Yeshua is Hebrew for Jesus, i.e. Yah/God my Saviour.)
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, [in whom] my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (Isaiah 42:1; 1 John 5:11-13)
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (John 3:18-21)
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand. Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (Matthew 25:41)
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.
Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 John 2:2; Romans 3:25)
And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. (Luke 16:22-23)
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him. (Psalms 2:10-12)
For Tophet [is] ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made [it] deep [and] large: the pile thereof [is] fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death. (Isaiah 30:33; Proverbs 16:25)
And the LORD said unto me, They have well [spoken that] which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require [it] of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that [is] the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, [but] the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (Deuteronomy 18:17-22; John 14:6)
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:17)
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Colossians 1:17)
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. (Isaiah 1:18; Matthew 11:19)
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him [a portion] with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (Isaiah 53:10-12; John 14:23)
[Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. (Hebrews 13:5; Psalm 37:28)
And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, [and] if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
For this commandment which I command thee this day, it [is] not hidden from thee, neither [is] it far off. It [is] not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither [is] it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word [is] very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ [is] the end [goal] of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. But [moreover] the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ [the Anointed One and His anointing] down [from above]:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.
And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit [His Anointing] which he hath given us. (Deuteronomy 30:9-16) (Romans 10:3-13) (Philippians 2:13) (1 John 3:23-24)
For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.(John 5:21-23)
And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. (Hebrews 1:6)
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (Isaiah 8:20; 1 John 4:1,6; 2 Timothy 3:15-17)
All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great. What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. (Psalm 25:10-14; John 14:26; 1 John 2:27; Matthew 7:21-27)
Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10)
And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Luke 9:23)
The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. (Psalm 23; Psalm 27:10; Isaiah 49:15)
