I don’t have to explain this title because everyone is distracted in one way or another. Some more than others, some not so much. The real question is this: what is distracting you?
If you believe in a higher power which one do you truly believe in? Allah? Buddha? Krishna? New Age religions?
Why would you put your faith in these who have been dead for centuries? God has been here since time before time and He will be here into eternity. He is the Creator, all of these others got their “wisdom” from someone else.
We are distracted because we have lost our way trying to form our god into one that is easier to handle and believe in rather than believing in the God and Ruler of the universe, the One Who created all of it…right down to the sub molecular particles that are part of everything. God’s idea for each of us is simple and it involves our worship of Him. But that isn’t all that we will do into eternity. I’m not going to speculate about our jobs in Eternity with God. Praise will be part of it I’m sure. Worship and thankfulness will certainly be in evidence all of the time. I don’t know what Heaven will be like so I can’t tell you…but I do know that it won’t be anything like the punishment that Satan and the fallen angels who followed him will be living out into eternity. Those who chose not to believe in Jesus for their salvation and repent of their sinful lives will also be in that place of darkness and pain.
Distractions that we have now will not be in Heaven or hell. We will be totally focused on the love and the eternal happiness that we will enjoy in God’s Presence. Those who chose to follow the anti-Christ or even their own idea of “god” will feel God’s wrath during the Tribulation and into eternity in hell. How do I know they will feel it? Because Jesus said the “smoke of their torment rises forever“. You see, our souls live on into eternity whether we are in Heaven or hell and those bodies which we are given to live in also feel pain and joy and sorrow and misery but our bodies in eternity never die. Why do I bring this up? Because I want to make sure that when you stand in front of God and He asks you why you didn’t believe in Jesus for your salvation? It won’t be because I didn’t tell you if you read my posts here.
Since this disease has shut down my in-person preaching I have to tell others about Jesus here. Some will listen and believe and some won’t, but it is still my job to make sure that the message of Jesus Christ is here for you to read and make your decision. As it says in John 3:16-17: 16 For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world, but that the world may be saved by him.
Please, seek Jesus Christ for your salvation while there is time. We are not guaranteed tomorrow morning so if you don’t know Him please make sure of it tonight.
