The word “ungodly” means not like God. A person and God isn’t on the same page. God would never be seen with such a one because they have nothing in common. The deeds of men build a wall between them and the Lord; for God is holy and He has told all who want to be with Him, to be holy as well. 1 Peter 1.15-16. Isaiah 59.1-2.
To give an example of what I say, consider these deeds, if you are a liar, you are ungodly. If you speak profanity and use the name of the Lord in vain, you are ungodly. If you practice premarital sex, adultery, homosexuality, you are ungodly.If you hate the word of God, you are ungodly. If you are a druggie, drunk, you are ungodly. etc.
If you want the Lord to accept you, then you need to obey Him. Men and God will never be on the same page as long as they refuse to submit themselves to what the word of the Lord commands. You have spent too much time away from the Lord, so make plans to obey the Lord. Do so before its too late. John 8:21.
Are you intimidated by your church going neighbor? You feel shame, don’t quite know how to behave when around him? Feel guilty when you are around him and compelled to say something about religion? If so, you are being convicted by his serving of God and your lack of. You see him doing what you should be doing, but for some reason you aren’t.
All is not lost; you still have hope. If you are touched in some way by the religious actions of another; just use these feelings to begin doing what you know you need to do. God wants the faithful to show their light to the world, so that others might be convicted by that light. Your neighbors light is calling you, please don’t turn away.
In order to get to heaven, everyone must obey God. There will be no such thing as some not obeying God and others do and everything will work out just fine.
There is a message called the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the message of salvation to all who will heed its words. You need to hear the gospel and obey it. John 6:45. Acts 18:8.
Rom 1:16. 1 Cor 15:1-4. 2 Thess 1:7-8.
I will sing of mercy and justice. To You, O Lord, I will sing praises. I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away and It shall not cling to me. A perverse heart shall depart from me and I will not know wickedness. Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will destroy.
The one who has a haughty look and a proud heart, him I will not endure. My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land that they may dwell with me; He who walks in a perfect way, shall serve me. He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house; He who tells lies shall not continue in my presence. I will destroy all the wicked of the land and I may cut off all the evildoers from the city of the Lord. Psalms chapter 101. (NJKV)
Daily Bible reading is good for you. Acts 17.11. John 5.39. When reading the Bible, you allow the Lord to speak though His Word and you will learn new things that you couldn’t have known by yourself.
During most of our lives, we hear men, but we don’t hear God. That is true because hearing God is only possible by studying His word and If we don’t invest time to study His Word, we cannot hear Him.
The Bible has a total of 66 books with 39 being in the Old Testament and 27 in the New. By studying the Bible, especially the book of Hebrews in the New Testament, we learn that God has expired the Old Testament concerning men living by it. We learn that God by the death of Christ has established His church and set the New Testament as the sole authority for us today. That isn’t to say that the Old Testament is empty pages, but it does remain as a excellent source of history where men can read and see how God looked upon men at the time that it was in force.
If you wish to know more about the Word of God and how it can be of help in your life, we urge you to contact the church here. Our purpose is to help men educate themselves in what the Bible teaches..
There is the possibly that Almighty God could get so angry with the world, that He becomes dead set on destroying men and not even His most faithful servants will be able to change His mind.
The word of the Lord came to me: Mortal, when a land sins against me by acting faithlessly and I stretch out my hand against it and break its staff of bread and send famine upon it and cut off from it human beings and animals. Even if Noah, Daniel,[a Job, these three, were in it, they would save only their own lives by their righteousness says the Lord God. If I send wild animals through the land to ravage it, so that it is made desolate, and no one may pass through because of the animals; Even if these three men were in it says the Lord God. They would save neither sons nor daughters; they alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate. Or if I bring a sword upon that land and say, “Let a sword pass through the land,” and I cut off human beings and animals from it; Though these three men were in it says the Lord God, they would save neither sons nor daughters, but they alone would be saved. Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my wrath upon it with blood, to cut off humans and animals from it; If Noah, Daniel,[b] and Job were in it, says the Lord God, they would save neither son nor daughter; they would save only themselves by their righteousness. Ez 14.12-20
