We all like and want guarantees … the more, the longer, the better. Most of us have heard the saying that the only guarantees we have in this life are taxes and death. We certainly have taxes although many have managed to elude paying taxes . And no one has yet to discover any means of escaping death (and they never will). Sooner or later we will all face death. So I don’t think anyone would argue that neither of these are something we tend to get all excited about. Most of us who pay taxes think that we pay way too much and indeed we do as far as the cost of “Constitutional government”.
Therein lies the problem … government is out of control and the cost is beyond comprehension and beyond any hope of recovery. A major crash is coming soon which will be used to trigger all the rest of the Illuminati’s plan of final takeover of our lives and this world we live in. Extremely difficult and dangerous times are coming soon. We have no guarantees of how life is going to be for any of us. And death may very well come early for many of us at the hands of these evil hearted people.
6 million Jews and many others suffered greatly and died a horrible death at the hands of such people back in the time of Hitler. It is about to be repeated but few are aware of it, believe it or are prepared for it. Most people think life is just going to continue on as it always has been. What a rude awakening awaits them! God has said in His Word that “Men’s hearts will fail them for fear and for looking upon those things which are coming on the earth”. (See Luke 21:26)
In this life we have very few guarantees, but we do have some. Let me list some which come to mind:
1) We all will die and stand before the judgement seat of Jesus Christ and give an account of our lives to Him.
2) We all have eternal life … it is just a matter of where we will spend it.
3) If we die in our sins, we shall surely perish into eternal damnation.
4) If we come to God on His terms He offers us salvation … the forgiveness of our sins and the consequences of our sin removed (the sentence upon us overturned) and the promise of spending eternal life with Him.
5) We should not fear man who can only destroy this body, but we should fear God Who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell.
Those are just a few guarantees that come to mind. As to what lies ahead for anyone of us as far as these difficult times I have been speaking of I don’t know and I can’t say I am anxious to find out. But this much I know … Jesus has not appointed me to His wrath. I may have to face man’s evil doings but I will face it with hope of eternal life in Christ and remembering that to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Jesus suffered a horrific agonizing death so that you and I could have eternal life with Him. He demonstrated His love for us in that while we were in the very act of committing sin (showing ourselves to be God’s enemies in rebellion against God), He died for us. There is no greater demonstration of love than one who lays down his life for his enemies. If you have not answered the question yet I put it to you now …
“What will you do with Jesus?” Someday your heart will be asking, “What will He do with me?”
I am sure many of us have seen the Chick tracts before. They are often found laying around here and there. They are the comic book type tracts. I used to see them laying around aboard ship when I was in the navy. I looked at a couple of them while aboard ship but I didn’t pay much attention to them and really didn’t have much interest in them at that time. There is a reason for that which I won’t go into at this time. Chick has many very good tracts but there are two or three that really stand out in my mind. One of them is what I write about today. I invite you to read this tract now. It might be your last opportunity as we have no assurance of our next breath or heartbeat. It would be most tragic to die without ever dealing with the most serious problem we all have …
This Was Your Life
