The Gift Of God


Even though God's justice will result in the ultimate destruction of the wicked, God takes no pleasure at all in this.

Ezekiel 18:32 "For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye."

God loves each one of us deeply, He doesn't want any of us to be lost, He wants each one of us to be saved. To make this possible He gave the greatest gift that heaven could give, He sacrificed His only begotten Son to save us, and Jesus came as a willing sacrifice because He loves us so much.

John 3:16-20 "16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved."

Jesus came into the world as God's precious gift. God could not have given more Ė He gave all that He could give to save us. All we have to do is accept that free gift.

However, many modern notions of the love of God seem to remove righteousness from His nature altogether, and substitute for it a mere good nature, which in reality is weakness not love, cruelty not kindness.

There is nothing in the facts of the world, or in the teachings of the gospel, which countenances the notion of a God whose love prevents Him from punishing the wicked. What do you call it when a father spares the rod and spoils the child?

We are no longer a moral people, anything and everything goes, the world is full of crime and heinous acts against young and old alike. God will not allow this to carry on much longer. It is time for an end to such sin and suffering, and those who have chosen to disregard God's law of love and justice must and will be punished. The wicked would not want to live for eternity in a world of peace, love and obedience to God, it would be a living hell for them, and so to destroy them is an act of compassion from a loving God - but how it will break His heart of infinite love!

Each of us can have the eternal life He freely offers, so before it's too late, turn from the devil's snare into the arms of Jesus, ask Him to come into your life to change you and prepare you for His soon-coming heavenly Kingdom, because...

1 John 5:12 "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."
