It is no mistake that the bible is the worlds best seller. It is no mistake, that even those who ridicule the bible, end up endorsing its principles as the way to go in everyday life. It is no mistake, that others were so in awe of the beauty of its message, that they decided to write their own bible or put out their own so called inspired writings.
I speak of Muhammad and the Koran, Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon. Ellen G White and her seventh day Adventist notes; along with Mary Baker Eddy and her words of the Christian science church.
The ideal that God gives a message to man about salvation is the ultimate gift and many writers want it on that idea. Who knows, who will be the next person coming along claiming a revelation from God and a new bible? Readers, mankind is really a piece of work.
Take some and study these scriptures; you will be glad that you did. Gal 1.6-9. 2 John 5-11. Deut 28.14. 1 Pt 1.22-25. James 1.25. Heb 13.20-21. 2 Tim 3.14-17
Recently a lady saw her neighbor house on fire and frantically knocked on the door awaking them from sleep and saving lives. This was a heroic act by her; she knew those people weren’t aware of the danger near them, and she sounded out the warning.
This is like a teacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ; warning people to repent and get their lives right in the sight of God. People all over the globe, are sleep in sin and cannot see the danger of hell fire creeping upon them, because Satan has blinded their eyes to slumber. Eph 5. 13-14. 2 Cor 4. 1-5. Rom 13.11. 1 Thess 5.4-8.
The person attempting to introduce the gospel to you, means no harm. They want to warn you. They are following the wishes of the Lord, who also wants to warn you. The fire of hell is coming. Heb 9.27. Won’t you give the gospel a chance?
When Moses told the Israelites this, they were very sad. Early the next morning the people started to go up to the high hill country. They said, “We have sinned. We are sorry that we did not trust the Lord. We will go to the place that the Lord said.
But Moses said, “Why are you not obeying the Lord’s command? You will not be successful! Don’t go into that land. The Lord is not with you, so your enemies will easily defeat you. The Amalekites and Canaanites will fight against you there. You have turned away from the Lord, so he will not be with you when you fight them. And you will all be killed in battle. But the people did not believe Moses. They went toward the high hill country. But Moses and the Ark of the Lord did not go. Then Amalekites and the Canaanites living in the hill country came down and attacked the Israelites and easily defeated them and chased them all the way to the place called Hormah. Num 15.39-45.
This reminds me of people being told because of covid, not to gather and travel and they still gather and travel. Afterwards, suffering begins. If people are being told the truth about covid, it is wrong for them not to obey the warnings. On the other hand, if warnings about covid are lies, this story doesn’t apply and those who congregate and travel, have nothing to worry about. You have a brain, go figure.
