«God…desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth» (1Tim.2:4).
brothers and sister, the day of God’s Wrath is approaching! Are you ready to
«Why should we be afraid of this day? - some will ask. - We believe that God exists. We sometimes go to the church, we give alms and we try to live honestly. Others steal, drink and commit adultery – they should be afraid. We are simple and honest people. God is kind and He will not allow that something could happen with decent people, as we are».
Jam. (2:19-20) said: «Thou
believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and
tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?»
See, the demons also believe in God that they even shiver for fear, but their
belief will not save them - all of them will be in the hell. But don’t be
deceived: many people will appear in the hell, who believed in God all their
life. It is not enough only to believe. It is necessary to love. «For
this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are
not grievous» (1John 5:3). «If ye love Me, keep
My commandments» (John14:15). «He that saith, I
know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in
him» (1John. 2:4). It’s not enough just to believe - it is necessary
to live by commandments of God. God
had given us a New Testament - Jesus. Those who will accept His sacrifice for
their sins will redeem their souls from the hell.
you love God so much that you live by His commandments? Have you accepted Jesus'
Many people can’t understand it. “Woe to you, you fools, for you will be destroyed through your folly. And you do not listen to the wise and good will not come upon you. And now know that you are ready for the day of destruction. And do not hope that you will live, you sinners; rather you will go and die, for you know no ransom (from the author: those who are late to enter the Kingdom of Heaven) » (Enoch 98:9-10 (96:17-18)). «My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge» (Hosea 4:6) – says the Bible.
there were two cities: Sodom and Gomorrah, cities of high culture with refined
civilization. They did not reject God. Probably there were pastors, some pitiful
types. But God simply was not perceived seriously. Probably, on weddings and
funeral people addressed to God, but in all the rest they didn’t need Him. All
His commandments were trampled. In Sodom there lived a righteous man name Lot.
From time to time he told: «It is impossible to intercourse with God this way!
Be not deceived, God can not be scolded! What a man will sow, the same he will
get! ». But once on dawn God spilled on these cities the sulfuric rain and fire
from the sky. We experienced this during the war bombing. But God could do it
without airplanes. I can imagine people jumping from beds and shouting: «In
cellars!». But it becomes hot in the cellar, as in an furnace. It is impossible
to hold any longer. New shouts: «To the exit!». And they rushed outside. But
outside the rain of fire and sulfur pours everywhere. Helpless people: they
can’t leave, and in the cellars they, for certain, will choke. The Bible tells
about it. I imagined a crowd of different people which are together: a young
secular lady, who was till now
indifferent to God, considering Him a kind fellow; an elderly mister, who could
distinguish each mark of wine by taste. He had nothing against God, but he was
absolutely indifferent to Him.
types were together in the cellar: fine, decent
people, honor citizens, serviceable tax payers . All of them had dark
secrets, as well as everyone has now. It becomes hotter and hotter in the
cellar. They would like to leave, but they can't, because around the death
storms is. And then they are covered with a horror. Suddenly a corpulent mister
says: «People, Lot was right: God is really alive!» And a young secular lady
says: «Then only one thing can help: now it is necessary to pray! But who can
pray?!» Hands rise (in antiquity people prayed with raised hands), hands that
never rose till now. Suddenly distributes: «My God, take pity! We have sinned!
We have neglected You! But hear! You are the loving God, You are mercy! My God,
take pity!» But He is silent! Only the roar and the crash of the fire can be
heard. Then raised hands fall and the fists are compressed: « God! Why you are
silent?!» But everything is silent! Is only the roar of fire is heard. Now they
can pray, swear - God won't answer any more!
