The Word of God

Hebrews 4:12 says it all: For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

The reason that I am beginning with this verse tonight is that it is true! God’s Word is alive and His Word, the Bible, does have the power to read your heart and bring you to the point of knowing that you need Jesus as your Savior…but only if you will read it and ask God to show you why you should believe in Jesus. Having a Bible in your possession doesn’t help you, having one on the table in the living room won’t help you until you pick it up and allow God’s Holy Spirit to show you exactly who you are and why you need Christ!

Our lives are short and we are never promised that we even have the rest of today let alone the promise of waking up tomorrow. No one has that promise. That is why my messages have been briefer these past few months. We don’t have the time to waste. There is nothing left to do, no more prophecies to be fulfilled except for the number of people who will give their hearts to Jesus. It is possible that you are the holdout or maybe a family member. Whoever it may be, when that person has been reached with the message that brings them to the conviction that they need Jesus and they have accepted Him…then the entire world will know that the Bible is the Truth. It may happen at the very instant that they accept Jesus and when the rapture of the church happens, the world will know beyond any possible doubt that “thy Word is true!”

If you’ve never given your heart to Christ and allowed His Spirit to change your heart and your life, then you need to know for sure that He is the Way to Salvation. He is the only way to salvation and there is no other name by which we can be saved. God loves all of mankind but He knows who will and who will not accept His invitation to become an adopted son in His Kingdom. Many people say that it is too simple. Belief in the name of Jesus…that is all that is required of each of us. But some want to help God save their souls.

God doesn’t need our help to do anything! How arrogant of us to think that we would need to help God when it was He Who formed each of us in our mother’s womb and gave each of us a measure of faith that would allow us to believe in Him for salvation. Most of us spend many hours and possibly years trying to find that part of us that feels empty. We try to fill it with money or drugs or sex but the only Person that fills that space is Jesus and until we feel that and know that we need Him, it will always be empty.
