Coronavirus Aftermath:
PERSECUTION Is Looming EXCEPT We Pray.

By Pastor Vincent Imwensi

Since the outbreak of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, most believers all over the world have been praying that the virus would go away and that life should return to normal. That is a right and proper thing to do and by God’s grace, I have been a part of that just like many of you that are reading this. It is also evident that God in His mercy is answering our prayers as attested to by the increasingly positive turnaround of the situation.

But I can see a worldwide persecution coming to the Body of Christ in the aftermath of this pandemic except believers pray fervently to avert it.
You don’t have to be a prophet to see that. In Luke 12:56, Jesus said “…..You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?”

Bear with me, let me break it down a little bit so you can see what I’m talking about.

Situation Update
Right now, the Coronavirus has caused a lot of grief, sorrow and destruction all over the world. As of date, the confirmed cases of Coronavirus infection worldwide is over 4.8 million people and more than 320,000 have lost their lives to this horrible disease.

The whole world is under a compulsory lockdown in an attempt to save lives and mitigate the impact of this virus – something that has not happened in living memory.

As things stand, many businesses are being forced to close down, large numbers of people are on the way to losing their jobs, hunger and starvation are creeping into many parts of the world, not to mention the fear factor and the sense of insecurity that is pervading everywhere. Consequently, the whole world is in desperate need of viable solution to the Coronavirus enigma.

A Coordinated Worldwide Response
You would have noticed that so far, the proffered response to this pandemic is the same everywhere across the globe. That includes personal hygiene, the use of PPE (personal protective equipment) and social distancing.

When eventually what is deemed a viable solution is found, it will also be embraced worldwide, even if such measures are to the disadvantage of the Church.

The Church And Social Distancing
Social distancing as we have it right now is said to be working very fine and it is being proposed in several quarters to keep it going for quite a long while to come. It is being credited with the declining death rate caused by Coronavirus around the world.
But even though it affects almost every part of society, there is no sector more in the firing line of this “solution” than the Church.

The Church thrives on and revolves around fellowship, which for the most part requires that people come together in a designated location. God’s word commands His people to meet together too (e.g. Psa.50:5; Heb.10:25; etc).
Thank God that social media can be used to communicate the gospel but that it can never replace the need for believers and seekers to come together in a place of worship, is beyond any reasonable debate.

As governments around the world begin to ease their lockdowns, it is almost likely that the Church will be the last sector to be considered for obvious reasons.

Suppose for a moment that social distancing is going to be continued for a long time to come, how do you think that will affect the Church?

How many people can you keep in an average-sized church auditorium if each person must stay two metres apart from others?

What will happen to the faith of many believers around the world who do not have the facilities to connect to a preacher online?

How effectively are we going to be able to reach and win lost souls to the Lord if we have to maintain the rule of social distancing?

With very few people in church, how will it get the financial resources to function and cover its overheads? With many church premises consequently forfeited due to their inability to pay the rent and other associated bills, what becomes of the Church?

The Vaccine Option
Many governments around the world are hard at work to find solution to the situation through a vaccine.

Ordinarily, many people are wary of taking vaccines, how much more when it is a new vaccine that is yet to be well proven?

In his recent exposé on this subject, my friend Rev. Tony Akinyemi explains that the vaccine being contemplated is called the MRNA/DNA nucleic vaccine. It works by fusing with human genes (resulting in a type of genetic modification in humans). Now that is serious, to say the least and not many people (if they have a choice) will be willing to give in to that.

As usual, governments will be crafty in the way they introduce it. To be socially and politically correct, they will say it is not compulsory EXCEPT for those who want to be in close contact or proximity with other people (which again, puts the Church in the firing line).
They will say such a measure or exception is in order to protect and safeguard the interest of the general public: and who can blame a government that is out safeguard its citizens?

As it is right now, without any attendance prerequisites, getting people to attend a church service is a challenge in many places, which is why many churches (especially in the West) are scanty or few in membership. If then people must now take a vaccine (which they are unwilling to take) before they can attend a church service, how many people do you think will be going to church?

If the Church says “No” to such a vaccine, it will be considered an enemy and a risk to public safety.
All around the world, several churches (especially evangelical churches) have been burnt down over the years by the enemies of the Church for no just cause. What will happen in a situation where the Church takes a stance that causes it to be seen as a public enemy?

If on the other hand it says “Yes” and embraces it, many who do not want to be genetically modified will keep away. Can you see the point?

The Devil Is An Opportunist
If not stopped in his tracks, the devil knows how to seize and use opportunities like this to his greatest advantage and to the utmost detriment of his biggest enemy in the world – the Body of Christ.
Reaching out to the unsaved and turning them to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as establishing believers in the faith, are the devil’s greatest nightmares on earth today.

The situation created by this pandemic gives him a wide open door to manipulate governments around the world to come up with measures that will subdue, if not totally destroy the Church.

If that happens, serious-minded believers who love the Lord will refuse to comply and that is where persecution will come in.

If Persecution Breaks Out, How Many Will Stand?
With the condition of the Church as it is now, how many believers do you think will damn the consequences and go to church when they know they could be arrested and thrown into jail?

How many will dare go out to witness for Christ in violation of social distancing rules?
How many will be willing to be deprived of their jobs, their comforts, and their social status as a result of taking a stance for the Lord?

At a time when the Church has become so sensitized to the doctrine of social correctness, how many believers do you think will be ready to be branded and treated as “public enemies” on account of their faith and stance for the Lord?

Persecution will do one of two things: it will test to the limit, the faith of those who decide to go all the way with the Lord while at the same time forcing many who are not prepared to suffer for their faith to deny the Lord and go back into the world.

Can you imagine a situation where the dream of making it to heaven becomes a disappointment to many? If you say “God forbid” like I do, then we must pray.

We Must Pray And Do So Now
Fervent prayer is required to avert a situation that opens the Church up to devastating persecutions. Our prayers must go beyond asking that the lockdown be lifted. It must also be directed at what happens after this pandemic.

We need to pray against the introduction of satanic solutions whose hidden agenda will be to suffocate, subdue and destroy the Church.

If we would pray, God is able to grant to governments around the world a solution that will be effective against Coronavirus without disadvantaging the Body of Christ.

Let’s not make Peter’s mistake: when he was given the opportunity to pray, he slept off and when the enemies showed up, he resorted to fleshly weapon which did not accomplish anything and before he knew it, he had denied the Lord three times with an oath! (Mat.26:37-45; 51-52, 69-75).
If only he prayed when he had the time to, the story would have been different.

If you are a believer, please get on your knees and begin to pray. This should be taken seriously. We must not allow the adversary carry out his evil agenda against the Church.

Staying Safe In An Unsafe World
The uncertainties of the times we live in beckon to every soul to find a safe and reliable refuge. The events of the past few months caused by the Coronavirus pandemic have revealed to all of us the fallibility of man and the vanity of our worldly pursuits.

Who would have thought that the whole world (including the technologically advanced) could be brought to a standstill and locked down at the same time? But it happened and even right now, we are yet to recover from it.

I invite you to put your life in the hands of the One who can keep you safe, protected and preserved, irrespective of what happens. That person is none other than the Saviour of the world – the Lord Jesus Christ.

You need Him in your life and if you are not already saved or born again, waste no time any longer. Commit your life to Him today and let Him save your soul. Click here to find out how.

Which Will You Be Celebrating?

Is It CHRISTMAS ….. Or ‘The Holidays’?

By Pastor Vincent Imwensi 

They are not the same thing. One is celebrating time off work and school while the other is acknowledging/celebrating the birth of the Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Calling the Christmas season “holiday season” is now catching up with many people and in many parts of the world. Instead of saying “Merry Christmas”, many are now saying “Happy Holidays” and they think it is cool.

But it is not so cool when you understand what is going on and the real reason behind the change.

Christmas Is Not A Religious Ritual, It Carries An Important Message
For more than one thousand, six hundreds years, the 25th of December has been celebrated as Christmas to mark the coming of the Saviour (our Lord Jesus Christ) into this world to save man from sin and eternal judgment.

The first recorded Christmas was celebrated on the 25th of December, 336 A.D. under the Roman Emperor Constantine who was the first Christian Roman Emperor.

What makes Christmas unique is the message it carries – the message of God’s love for man.This is not an empty religious ritual.

Recognising The Enemy’s Ploy
Through the years, the Christmas period has become the most celebrated time of the year and in fact, some have actually called it the most wonderful time of the year. It reminded everyone that sometime ago in Bethlehem, a King was born to save humanity from sin.
It is no wonder that the devil became very uncomfortable with it especially as it reminded humanity of the gift of God’s love and their need for salvation.

The clever thing then was to see if there was a way for people to keep on enjoying this period without mentioning or being reminded anything about the coming of the Saviour, Jesus Christ.
That is where this idea came from and that is the exact purpose it serves.

By The Way, Which Holiday Are They Celebrating
In December?

Is it school-term holidays, workplace holidays, bank holidays, or which is it that they celebrate in December?

All through the year, there are different kinds of holidays in different countries. Why don’t they celebrate them? Since when did holiday become a worldwide celebration?
Some will say it is the Christmas holidays – if so, what then is wrong with calling it Christmas?

The important thing about Christmas season is not the fact that people are given some days off work during that period – it’s not about the holidays. But rather, it is what it celebrates – the reason for the season, the coming of the Son of God into this world to save humanity from sin and its tragic consequences.

Who Says It Doesn’t Matter?
I know some would say it doesn’t matter but they are wrong. If it doesn’t matter, why change it from Christmas to ‘the holidays’?

Would you call a girlfriend a wife and say it doesn’t matter? Would you call the company boss an errand-boy and say it doesn’t matter? Would you call a convicted serial killer an innocent man and say it doesn’t matter?
Who says the name we call people, things and events doesn’t matter?

Was Jesus Actually Born On The 25th Of December?
That is an old question and it has a straightforward answer.

Jesus may not have been born in December (or specifically on the 25th of December) but for some reason, that is when His birth into this world has come to be celebrated all over the world for hundreds of years.

It is a common knowledge that birthdays are not always celebrated on the exact day on which a person was born. Someone’s exact birthday may fall on a Monday and then he/she would shift the celebration to the following Saturday or Sunday. In some cases, some even move the celebration of their birthday forward by a couple of months.

So if Jesus was not born on the 25th of December, what does that matter? Does that change the fact that He was born or does that invalidate the celebration of His birth on the 25th of December? It certainly doesn’t.

A Subtle Denial For A Reason
Changing Christmas to ‘the holidays’ is a subtle denial of the coming of the Saviour to this world and/or an attempt to suppress and disregard its significance.

But that was one event that was so glorious that heaven could not contain the joy of God’s angels.

They broke across the boundaries between the visible and the invisible realm, between the supernatural and the natural world, to come down to herald the good news of the Saviour’s birth to humanity (see Luke 2:7-14).

It appears the world nowadays is doing its best to distance itself from anything that has to do with Christ. Many people obviously feel uncomfortable acknowledging that Christ is the reason for this wonderful season and hence their readiness to embrace the alternative called “the holidays.”

Here in London for instance, no mention is made of Christ anymore in shopping malls and public places during Christmas unlike before.

Now, even the Christmas street lights have been stripped of “Merry Christmas” signs.
Christmas songs that used to fill the air telling the story of the birth of the Saviour have all been silenced in public places and in the shopping malls.

America Must Take Responsibility For This
The idea of changing Christmas to “the holidays”, which is a rather recent development, began in the United States of America and like I said earlier, it is now catching up with many parts of the world.

That is unfortunate especially coming from a country fondly referred to as “God’s own country” and whose official motto is “In God we Trust.” This is not a good example worthy of emulation.

Like someone has rightly said, ”if you must copy, then copy right.” Regarding this matter, that is my advice to anyone that cares to listen especially if you are a Christian.

We need to see beyond the veil of social correctness and make sure we do not join anyone in their bid to deny the Lord and tune down the truth of His coming into this world.

Replacing Christmas with “the holidays” is not a more civilised, modernised, and better way of referring to Christmas (as some would like to think).
Instead, it is a Christ-denying way that has been craftily invented.

What About Those Who Are Not Christians?
That is the socially correct excuse often given to justify replacing Christmas with “the holidays” – to make it more inclusive so that non-Christians can celebrate without any religious connotations.

In reality, that is even the more reason why it must remain as CHRISTMAS as it helps to remind everyone (at least, once a year) the story of God’s love for their souls by sending His only begotten Son to this sinful world to bring us salvation.

You are not doing unsaved souls any favours by suppressing or hiding the truth of the gospel from them.

This therefore is a very great disservice and injustice to non-Christians as it denies them the opportunity to be reminded (in a way that no other event might), of the love of God for their souls and their need for salvation.

Is it any wonder that the arch-enemy of the human soul (the devil) is behind it all?

So Friend, What Will You Be Celebrating?
Taking Christ out of Christmas makes the whole thing meaningless.

By God’s grace, as for me and my house, we will be celebrating Christmas and thanking God for sending His Son Jesus Christ to save our souls.

We will not be celebrating “the holidays” – we have no reason to! But thank God, we have every reason to celebrate Christmas and we are looking forward to it.

What about you? What will you be celebrating?

The Best Christmas Gift Ever
Let no one confuse you – Jesus Christ is the reason for this season. Having Him in your life as Saviour and Lord is the best Christmas gift you can ever receive.

So if you are not yet born again or if you have backslidden from Him, now is the time to surrender your life to Him and let Him save your soul. To find out more, click here.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance.

 

DON’T PLAY THE VICTIM OR ELSE …..

By Pastor Vincent Imwensi

Life is a school – the more you go, the more you learn.

And one of the things I’ve found out is that life victimizes those who play the victim. In fact, the way it works is, if you lie down, you will be climbed upon; if you sit down, you will be sat on and if you play dead, you will be buried – it’s as simple as that.

If you want to win, you must get on your feet, wipe your tears, roll up your sleeves and get into the fight determined to win and don’t quit until you do!

It’s Just Not Fair – But That’s The Reality
The pressures, challenges and difficulties of life will furnish you with more than enough reasons to throw up your hands and say I can’t go on anymore.

You may feel like doing so as  the pressures bashing against your weary self may strongly suggest it and even your logical analysis will lead you to the conclusion that the best thing to do is to throw up your hands and surrender. After all, you are only human and there is only so much you can bear (you may tell yourself).

vict

But don’t do it! Don’t give in to that despondency and play the victim. You can’t afford to go by what you feel in this case. It may not be fair but that is the reality.

You must press on even when you don’t feel like doing so and you must lift your head above the waters even when you feel like surrendering to the storm. If you play the victim, you’ll be victimized.

Not Many People Tell The Whole Story
Some of the greatest champions in history in whatever the field, (if they will tell you), came close to giving up. They are all too familiar with that sinking feeling to play the victim and quit but they refused. They pressed through that negative cloud and emerged as champions.

As champions, they are celebrated but not many of them bother to say what they went through and how that they almost gave up. And by the way, not many people care to find out what they went through to become the great successes that they became.

You Also Do Stand A Chance To Succeed
That’s right. You may be bombarded by the thoughts of giving up right now, but if you press through and end up at the other side (of success and breakthrough), many will celebrate you without caring to know what you went through to get there. What you are being confronted with is not new. That is the stuff that champions and winners go through.

If you don’t play the victim and quit, you stand the chance of succeeding and  emerging the successful you that you dreamt of.

Not Everyone Is Born With A Silver Spoon
Not everyone that has succeeded was born with silver spoon in their mouth. Some of the greatest heroes ever known were those who had very little to go on and came close to the brink of failure several times but refused to throw in the towel. Against all odds, they emerged as champions and that is even the more reason they are celebrated. If they could, what makes you think you can’t?

Most times, it is not how weak or strong you are; it is not how gifted or non-gifted you are; it is not how privileged or underprivileged you are. Most times, it comes down to one thing and that is the decision to press on and not to play the victim no matter what.

Get The Help You Need To win
Where do you find the courage to stand when you feel like sitting down? Where do you find the resourcefulness to press on when you feel like throwing up your hands in defeat? And where do you find reason to hope when all you can see is the dark cloud of hopelessness? I will tell you.

That help can only be found in God. He is a friend of the wounded, despondent and failing heart. He knows how to strengthen a man inside out at his weakest moments and most importantly, He has the power and the resources to turn any negative situation around if you will let Him step in and help you.

The first step to opening the door for Him to help you, is to come into a personal relationship with Him. And that is what happens when you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. Believe me, that will open the door to a lot of good things that will surprise you. Click here to find out how.

DO NOT SIGN YOUR DEATH WARRANT!

By Pastor Vincent Imwensi

We have a crafty enemy who has perfected the act of stealing, killing and destroying. So he has different clever ways of doing so.

The Bible calls the devil a serpent and when you look at serpents (or snakes) in the natural, you find that not only do they meander in the way they move, they also do not swallow their prey without first paralysing and strangling it. It is after they have strangled their prey that they begin to swallow it in.

The same thing happens with this spiritual serpent, the devil (and his demons).
One of the devil’s clever ways to carry out his killing agenda is to present you with your own death warrant and trick you to sign it.

don't_sign

What is this death warrant?
What am I talking about? Well, it is not a piece of paper and pen that he gives to you – it is his misrepresentations and misinterpretations of your situations and circumstances which he pumps into your mind and wants you to accept. He paints them really black.
For instance, by the thoughts that he suggests into your mind, he reminds you of what is not working in your life. He shows you your colleagues and other people for whom everything is fine (so it seems) while you are still in your problems.

He tells you that at the rate you are going, nothing good is going to come out of your life. He leaves you thinking that there is no point in continuing to live. He tells you that prayer doesn’t work like you think; and that righteousness doesn’t pay. He will point out to you people that do not pray and do not care about righteousness for whom everything is working fine (so to say).

He will even tell you that going to church is a waste of time (which is why many don’t or no longer go to church these days). He will show you many people that do not go to church but who are enjoying life. What is he trying to do, he is trying to make you sign your death warrant because the moment you agree and begin to harbour these thoughts, he gets busy to destroy your life.

He hides his identity. It doesn’t sound as though it is the devil speaking
When the enemy is speaking to you, he doesn’t want you to know – he hides his identity while he subtly blows these thoughts into your mind. Yes, he does all these suggestions in a very crafty way by hiding behind your thinking process in which case, you don’t even know that he is the one pushing these thoughts into your mind – you’d think it is just you thinking things over.

The devil understands very clearly that most of the time, he cannot kill you or your vision or your dreams without your permission. He will come to you asking for that permission in some very subtle ways. He wants you to agree with him and when you do, you will begin to sign your own death warrant without knowing that that is what you are doing.

How is this death warrant signed?
It is first by the thoughts of your heart and then by the words of your mouth – in that order. The thoughts come first and they are followed by spoken words.

Like the scripture tells us, it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks (Mt.12:34). So the enemy throws thoughts – negative thoughts, discouraging thoughts and defeatist thoughts into your mind. 
Most times, these thoughts are based on facts, they are logical. If you don’t deal with such negative thoughts, very soon, you will begin to speak against yourself, against your dreams and your visions; against your aspirations, pursuits and endeavours.

The words that proceed out of your mouth are acted upon by unseen forces
You may begin to say things like, “Oh, I don’t think it is going to work for me. I am a failure, my business will never succeed, I am too ugly to marry, I am too old to marry; all my mates have left me behind; it is too late for me to make any difference now, it is better for me to die than to live, no good thing ever happens to people like me, this sickness is going to kill me, I am not going to live long, why me, oh me, poor me ….” and stuff like that.

Life and death are in the power of the tongue, the scripture tells us (Prov.18:21). And you need to understand that the words that proceed out of your mouth are acted upon by invisible forces – that is, the forces of good or of evil.

When you speak the right words, positive words, words of hope and faith, the angels of God can act on those words to release your victory and breakthroughs according to what you are saying. But when your words are negative, the devils that have been on your trail are quick to jump at them and begin to execute those negatives sentences against you.

Correct logic and truth are not always the same
You may think you are being realistic and logical but you need to realize that logic and truth are not always the same. Something can be logical and seem realistic yet not true.

For instance, there are some people right now who are in prison for crimes they did not commit but the logic of the case pointed accusing fingers at them and so they were found guilty and imprisoned – even though the truth is that they are innocent. Don’t let the enemy imprison you by the logic of your circumstances.

Look at your life through the mirror of God’s word 
Look at your life and circumstances through the mirror of the truth of God’s word. What does God’s word say about you?

It says that it shall be well with the righteous; it says that weeping may endure for a night but joys is coming in the morning; It says that many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all; it says that God will not leave or forsake those who are His; it says that God is able to make way where there is no way for those that trust in Him; it says that to him that believes, all things are possible … and so on.

With all such wonderful promises there for you, there is no reason to despair. Stand on God’s word and keep on believing and trusting Him. He will turn things around for you. God is never too late and there is nothing impossible for Him.

Activate these wonderful promises and let them begin, to work for you. How do you do that? By meditating on them and speaking them forth by faith into your life and circumstances.

Therefore, be careful what thoughts you allow to stay on your mind. If they are negative, discouraging and depressing thoughts, (no matter how logical they may be, ) reject them outright – do not dwell on them and don’t let them come out of your mouth.

What if you don’t have what it takes?
Born again Christians can fight negative thoughts with their faith, with the wonderful promises of God word and through the help of the Holy Spirit.

But if you are not a Christian, when these negative thoughts invade your mind, you are helpless to counter them. That is often the time some people go and get drunk or begin to smoke substances intended to help them overcome the problem. Some even contemplate suicide at such times.

If this is talking about you, I am happy to let you know that there is help for you. All you need to do is commit your life to the Lord Jesus Christ and He will come into your life. Click here to find out how.

When that happens, you are put in a position to counteract and overcome such negative invasions on your mind and be able to say no the the death warrant the enemy wants to trick you to sign.

BUY NOW, PAY LATER

(But what if you’re unable to pay?)
By Pastor Vincent Imwensi

The concept of “buy now, pay later” is a popular one here in the United Kingdom with a lot of big stores.
And especially in this Christmas season with all the buying and buying everywhere, many are finding such offers too good to refuse.
I believe it is the same in other countries and many big cities around the world as well.

This arrangement is often associated with high value items. By it, you are able to walk into a store, buy the item you want even if you don’t have the money to pay immediately.

With a simple agreement which you will sign, you are allowed to go home with the item provided your credit check as well as a few other inquiries are satisfactory.

You will be required to pay for the item (interest free) on or before the expiration of a given period of time (for instance, it may be six, nine or twelve months, etc).

buy_now_pay_ later2

A Brilliant Idea
This system has a lot of merits and in many ways, makes life easier. Last year for instance, I purchased an item under this arrangement and before the given time period expired, I called up the finance company and paid in full over the telephone.
The whole thing felt so smooth and easy as I was allowed the needed time to manage my cash flow to accommodate the expense.

But There Is Another Side To It
As good as it sounds, it has an ugly side – that is where a buyer fails to pay up within the specified time.

If that happens, the finance company (that underwrote the cost of the item you purchased) will immediately launch you into an instalment repayment plan spanning a number of years at the end of which you would have paid twice (and sometimes, three times) more than the original cost of the item.

If you default with the instalment repayment, then the whole thing will compound and that is when you know you are really in a deep mess. Depending on the value of the item, it can launch a person into a cycle of indebtedness that is difficult to come out of.

So if you are not sure of how to repay when the time comes, (or you know you don’t have the wherewithal to repay) don’t try this – you may be biting more than you can chew!

Having To Pay When The Fun Is Over, Is Not Funny
A more painful scenario is where the repayment comes up after the benefits (or enjoyments) have ceased.

It is like somebody taking a loan to sponsor an expensive holiday. By the time he begins to repay the loan, the holiday has come and gone. And all the fun he had (while on the holiday) is in past tense – the reality that he now faces is the pain of debt repayment which may last up to a year or more.

And it is worse if he does not have the means to meet up with the monthly repayments of the debt.

That Is Exactly What Many Are Doing Without Knowing It
Each time I ponder the fact that a lot of people are living their lives the way they please without regards to where they are going to spend eternity when they leave this world, I can’t help feeling that they are doing “buy now, pay later” with their lives.

buy_now_pay_ later

Many are enjoying all sorts of sinful pleasures without regards to the consequences they would face later if they die in their sins.

I know that saying things like this is no longer popular. In fact, it is considered an offence in many quarters including many churches (especially the “socially correct” ones).

But bear with me because this is still the truth according to God’s word.

The Big Question
The Bible tells us that “…it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)

Many people have persuaded themselves into believing that the Bible is not true and there will be no judgment after this life. Well, let’s not go into any debate over that now.

My question is, SUPPOSING God is actually to judge sin one day…..! I said supposing – even if you don’t believe it, just suppose!

SUPPOSING there’s going to be judgment for every act of ungodliness and sinful pleasures including sexual immorality and perversion, lying, cheating and stealing, blasphemy, hatred and murder, etc ….

Yes, SUPPOSING that is going to be the case just like the Bible says, how well will you fare?

That is to say, when the time comes to repay, can you really pay? And the truth is, no one is without sin – whatever that sin may be.

A Generous Offer To Help You Pay Now
According to God’s word, none of us has what it takes to pay for our sins. The wages of sin is death and we are all guilty!

But God in His marvelous kindness and love sent His own Son, Jesus Christ to come down to this sinful world to die in our stead to take away our sin and the penalty we justly deserve.

All that is left is for us to come to God with a repentant heart, believe in the price that God’s son (Jesus Christ) paid on our behalf, and ask to be forgiven and saved.

God in His mercy has promised in His word that it doesn’t matter how sinful and guilty we have been, if we will do just that, He will accept us, forgive us of our sins and make us His own children.

Or Would You Rather Pay It Later – Yourself?
God’s free offer of salvation is only available while we are alive – it expires the moment a person dies.

Those who reject this gracious offer will have no choice than to face up to the consequences of their own sins before a holy God and they will be required to pay the debt that they have no means or ability to pay.

The result will be an unending (justly deserved) punishment in a place called hell fire.

I know it doesn’t sound exciting and it is certainly not “socially” or “politically correct” but it is the truth of God’s word and no one ought to be ignorant of this truth and impending reality.

Be Smart Dear Friend – Don’t Let It Happen To You!
It is when faced with God’s judgment for a sinful life that many will come to realize that they did not get away with their careless godless living and all the sinful fun they had while on earth.

The Devil has tricked many into a program called “buy now, pay later.”
And many have embraced it, rejecting the truth of God’s word and blatantly indulging in all manner of sinful living.

“Buy now, pay later”?
Don’t do that with your eternal destiny. It is too expensive a proposition to allow.
