For our first revelation today say James 4:14 pictured above Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. Note that our life on this earth is like a vapour that is seen a moment and then vanisheth away. The time of our life on this earth moves quickly. Therefore make the most of each second of your life to save souls. The bible says that NOW is the time to get saved. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee; behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation. Get saved today and repent, decide to stop sinning, make Jesus God of your life, and daily remember that Jesus died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again.
Make the most of your lives to live for Jesus daily and do not waste your time on fading worldly pleasures. Satisfaction and joy will only occur when we tell people about the Lord Jesus and win souls. I wish I could relive all the times I wasted on worldly pleasures of watching meaningless sporting events and study the treasures from the Word of God that lasts forever. Life on this earth is so short like a thin footprint upon a sea lashed shore; like the stay of a postman; like a glimpse of a passing ship; and like a quick burst of music down a crowded street. Psalm 90:9 says For all our days are passed away in thy wrath; we spend our years as a tale that is told.
THE GREATEST BARRIER TO GETTING PEOPLE SAVED
People are not willing to be saved by God's WAY and TIME
God's WAY is JESUS
God's TIME is NOW
Friends everywhere, TODAY NOW is the time to get saved. Hebrews 4:7 says Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts. We are not promised tomorrow and what we do with Jesus on this earth determines where we go forever. There is no purgatory and second chance to repent and be saved after this life on this earth. The rich man in hell had no second chance after he died on this earth; Because he rejected Jesus as God, he could not leave hell and was tormented forevermore. If we repent now on this earth and make Jesus our God, we go to heaven in peace forever. If anyone keeps sinning and denies Jesus as God, when they die on this earth, they go to hell and the lake of fire to be tormented forevermore.
Unfortunately, multitudes of people say tomorrow I'll get saved while I enjoy sinful worldly pleasures. Tomorrow is the philosophy of fools; the subterfuge (deceit) of procrastinators; the day that never is. Tomorrow is a ship in which many have gone to shipwreck; a lamp that failed and left many in eternal darkness; a key that has locked many in dungeons of despair; and an inexorable (impossible to stop) jailor that has imprisoned many behind hell's bars. Tomorrow is the road that has often led to the house of never. Don't say tomorrow I'll get saved; Say I'll get saved Today NOW.
The prophet Zechariah told us to get saved NOW at Zechariah 1:4 that says Turn ye NOW from your evil ways and from your evil doings; but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord. Because of the brevity of life and the length of eternity, get saved now today; Because of the horror of hell's infernal drums that beat to the ceaseless groans of the lost who rejected the Lord Jesus amid incessant and unmitigated torment, get saved now today.
Just think about the blessedness of heaven where you can go if you get saved now today. Heaven is a place where saved saints shall have an eternity of bliss in Jesus' glorified presence, in a place where there is no unhallowed ambition, no strife, and no sin; where all songs are songs of love; where the trees are trees of life, where there is fulness of joy and pleasures forevermore.
Today's second revelation is how the Lord Jesus knows everything about this earth and our lives. Pictured above we see that this universe is made of molecules, atoms, protons, neutrons, and electrons. Molecules house atoms that hold protons, neutrons, and electrons. Jesus knows each molecule, atom, proton, neutron, and electron of this universe. How blessed to know that Jesus knows everything in this universe, even to the smallest molecule, atom, proton, neutron, and electron.
And friends everywhere, how comforting to know that Jesus understands everything about your lives and cares about you. The bible says that Jesus knows the numbers of the hairs on your head, the number of your footsteps, your downsitting and uprising, and all your ways at all times and in all places. Take time to say Psalm 139 and praise Jesus; O Lord thou hast searched me and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Don't worry about anything friends. If Jesus can see the little sparrows and protect them daily, Jesus will fix every problem in our lives. Matthew 10:29 says Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
I pray in Jesus name that anyone who forevermore reads this will remember that Jesus lives in them and will arise and say to any storm peace be still creating a great calm. Mark 4:39 tells us And He (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Jesus made the raging waves to lie down like sleeping dogs at His feet and the winds howling like maniacs to whisper like babes softly in sleep.
For our final revelation today, we see pictured above how several disciples saved Paul's life by lowering him in a basket down a wall to escape from Jews who counselled to kill him. Acts 9:23 says And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him (Paul). But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him. Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.
Now note how important the disciples were to keeping Paul alive. If it wasn't for these disciples lowering Paul down a wall in a basket and saving his life, most of the bible would not have been written by Paul. Friend reading this anywhere, you might feel that you are not that important and do only small things for our Lord Jesus. But like these disciples, you are important whenever you do anything to help the saints of God preach the Lord Jesus to lost sinners.
Remember we are all one team working for Jesus to save lost sinners all over this earth. A kind word, visiting the sick and afflicted, and assisting the fatherless and widows in their affliction helps save lost souls and shine the Lord Jesus to this lost world. Neighbor, our good works don't save us, but Jesus will reward us at the bema judgment seat for all our kind deeds that lets the world see the Lord Jesus in our lives.
For my final thought today, take time to read how DL Moody, the greatest preacher of the 1800's who won thousands to our Lord Jesus, got saved. When DL Moody was 18, he applied for a job at a shoe store. The owner of the shoe store told DL Moody that he had to go to church in order to get the job. At first, DL Moody said I don't want to go to church but to get the job DL Moody went to church that Sunday.
When DL Moody arrived at church that Sunday morning, he attended sunday school taught by a little unnamed elderly woman. This little old woman taught DL Moody about Jesus and as a result DL Moody got saved and became one the greatest preachers ever, winning millions in the USA and England to the Lord Jesus. Now note that if it wasn't for this little elderly sunday school teacher, DL Moody would not have been saved and millions of lost sinners would have died and went to hell. DL Moody is one of Brother Bob's heros. In the 1800's before planes existed, DL Moody traveled across the Atlantic Ocean several times to England where thousands awaited him on the shores of Great Britain to hear about the Lord Jesus. Millions of sinners in America and England got saved and made Jesus their God because of DL Moody and a little unknown elderly sunday school teacher who loved our Lord Jesus.
You see how important each one of us is when we share Jesus with this world. Brother Bob might not have his name in lights like this elderly sunday school teacher; but if this book for Jesus can reach one person anywhere on this earth, that person could reach multitudes for Jesus Christ. Right now say with me, it's not about Brother Bob, it's not about DL Moody or his sunday school teacher, and it's not about me, It's all about lifting up the Lord Jesus. Jesus said at John 12:32 And I, if I (Jesus) be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Note DL Moody's blessed saying pictured above: A little faith will bring your soul to heaven, but a lot of faith will bring heaven to your soul. DL Moody also said go to heaven first class by saying Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid instead of going to heaven second class by saying Psalm 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
What DL Moody saw when he left this earth and entered heaven
A few hours before entering the homeland, DL Moody caught a glimpse of the glory awaiting him. Awakening from a sleep, he said, Earth recedes, heaven opens before me. If this is death, it is sweet. There is no valley here. God is calling me, and I must go. His son who was standing by his bedside said, No, no, father, you are dreaming.
No, said Mr. Moody, I am not dreaming: I have been within the gates: I have seen the children's faces. A short time elapsed and then, following what seemed to the family to be the death struggle he spoke again: This is my triumph; this my coronation day. It is glorious.
