You’ve Been Warned

Oh, sing unto Jehovah a new song!  Sing unto Jehovah, all the earth.  Sing unto Jehovah, bless His name; proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.  Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.  For Jehovah is great and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Jehovah made the heavens.  Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.  Ascribe unto Jehovah, O families of the peoples, ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength.  Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come into His courts.  O bow down before Jehovah in the beauty of holiness!  Tremble before Him, all the earth.  Say among the nations, Jehovah reigns; the world also is firmly established, it shall not be shaken; He shall judge the peoples with equity.  Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and all its fullness; let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.  Then all the trees of the forests shall rejoice before Jehovah.  For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.  He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.  Psalms 96


A lot of people would disagree with somebody telling them that they have been warned about seeking Salvation before it is too late.  Some would tell you that they don’t fully understand how to seek Salvation, most would simply scoff at the idea and say that they don’t have enough evidence to consider that Jesus is necessary for Salvation.  Still even others would think of those whom would never have heard the Gospel and ask how have they been warned.


Here is a fact, one that is true for every person who is on the face of the earth right now, if you were to die today you would be judged by God and either go to Heaven or Hell, literal places.  Once you are dead you can not change the outcome of God’s judgment on you, only right now as you are alive can you seek, find and accept Salvation through Jesus Christ.


Another fact is simply that without Jesus there is no Salvation, there is no hope, you are lost…eternally.  Without Christ you will be cast into Hell, judged by God through His righteousness.  There will be no excuses, there will be no appeals court, there will be no hope that somehow He will have mercy on you, God’s nature is just and that requires Him to met out judgment as the Judge.


Do you think the above statement is judgmental, harsh, hateful?  Which is better to tell you the truth, as an ambassador of Christ or let you live your life and then wonder why I or someone else didn’t remind you that you need to seek God?  In a day when the Lord God Almighty is being mocked, ridiculed, forgotten about or His statues are constantly being softened, His Salvation plan altered by man, there are some truths that need to be reminded to all.


“Know that Jehovah, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves…”  Psalms 100:3a


“My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.”  Psalms 139:15



“Before I formed you in the belly I knew you…”  Jeremiah 1:5a



“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  Genesis 1:27


Consider this, God is the One who created you.  Life is short, a common statement, but a true one.  If you were to consider eternity, trillions upon trillions of years and then times that by trillions and trillions, knowing that even that would not constitute eternity, then realize that you had better pay attention!  Not only did God create you, but He provided a means of forgiveness of sins, Salvation and a promise of eternal rest for those who love Him.


“Does not the potter have authority over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel unto honor and another unto dishonor?”  Romans 9:21


“Woe to him who strives with the One who formed him, a potsherd among the potsherds of the earth!  Shall the clay say to the one who forms it, What are you making? Or your work, He has no hands?”   Isaiah 45:9


“But now, O Jehovah, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You are the One who forms us; and we all are the work of Your hand.”  Isaiah 64:8


What can you say before your Creator?


“And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away.  And there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.  And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books.  And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them.  And they were judged, each one, according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire.  This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.”  Revelation 20:11-15


“And Moses returned to Jehovah and said, Oh, these people have sinned a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold!  Yet now, if You will, take away their sin; and if not, I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written.  And Jehovah said to Moses, Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book.”  Exodus 32:31-33


God is mighty, just, righteous, holy and perfect.  There is nothing that any man can say against Him.  We will all individually stand before Him and be held accountable for our sins.  Without accepting His free gift of Salvation to us, all is lost.


“Jehovah has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has laid bare in the eyes of the nations.”  Psalms 98:2


Who are you to state anything otherwise?  This world is contrary to God, our media, science, education system and entertainment industry do all they can to convince you that God is not real, or that the God of the bible, the One and true God is not as He states in His Word.  Yet consider carefully who they speak against:


“For Jehovah is the great and Mighty God, and the great King above all gods.  In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the summits of the hills are also His.  The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land.”  Psalms 95:3-5


“The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.”  Psalms 97:6


“Yours, O Jehovah, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and on earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Jehovah, and You are exalted as head over all.  Both riches and honor come from before You, and You reign over all.  In Your hand is power and might; it is in Your hand to make great and to give strength to all.”  1st Chronicles 29:11-12


“He who made the Pleiades and Orion, and turns the deep darkness into morning, and darkens the day into night; who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the face of the earth, Jehovah is His name…”  Amos 5:8


“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  Genesis 1:1


Understand that you have been warned, yet God provided you an opportunity to seek Him before it is too late.


“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  The one believing into Him is not judged; but the one not believing is judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the Light and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But the one doing the truth comes to the Light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been worked in God.”  John 3:16-21


“For of this they are willfully ignorant: that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.  But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same Word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.  But, beloved, do not be unaware of this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is longsuffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with intense burning; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”  2nd Peter 3:5-10


“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under Heaven given among men that is required for us to be saved.”  Acts 4:12


“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom Heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, of which God has spoken through the mouth of all His holy prophets since the past ages.”  Acts 3:19-21


“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to Jehovah, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”  Isaiah 55:7


“I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”  Luke 13:3


“Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  John 14:6


Dear reader, you’ve been warned.  Each man and woman will stand before God Almighty.  Are you going to consider your ways or are you going to continue on the path to Hell?


“For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.”  Psalms 96:13
