~ "Gimme another chance, please???"
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished (2 Peter 2:4-9)
Surely God knows who is righteous and who is unrighteous! He has shared with us, through His word, the events that have taken place in the lives of both. My dear friends, take heed! God's justice will not be any less severe this time around. He will not hesitate to destroy what is ungodly. Read very carefully these verses that Peter writes to you. In it contains a message that God wants to remind you of as you continue on down that road of willful sin. He has not shied away from condemning His creations that disobey Him. He has not held back His wrath from those who do not listen. He has no tolerance for the sexually immoral and the perverted hearts and minds of anyone. He will, however, deliver those who walk with Jesus. He has destroyed nations, entire kingdoms and the world as a whole (save eight). He is giving you, the unrighteous, the perverted, the blasphemer, the atheist, the separatists and the rest, an opportunity to come to know Him, through Jesus.
Do not take lightly the power of God. He is ALL-POWERFUL and ALL-MIGHTY!!! He can heal a cancer-ridden person. He can mend a broken heart. He can cause deaf men to hear and blind men to see. He can give life where there is none. He can alter the tides in the sea. He can change the direction of the wind...and in an instant, He can cause the world to stop! That day is coming, and it's coming sooner than you think!
It is time to prepare your soul for the second coming of Jesus. Our King will come and spare those who believe and testify to His holy name. Those who have chosen to follow and have tried to bring others to Him will be spared the horror.
God has delivered me from my "Sodom and Gomorrah", He will deliver you as well - if you ASK! Lift up your eyes to the heavens, lift up your voice in praise, fill your heart and your soul (as well as your mind) with the good things that come from God! Do not accept the unrighteousness of others as ignorance. Don't fool yourself into believing "they don't know any better". They know perfectly well that what they do is immoral, irreverent and NOT what God expects from them. They lust in one breath and deny in the next. Their attempt to alter the will of God extends far beyond their own little brothel. They make attempts to restrain, restrict and remove Him from our midst. They allow for the acts forbidden by God to be accepted and applauded by men. Those who follow, those who condone, will not see the Kingdom. God has spoken and His words will not be silenced!
In all that you do, pray! Pray for the strength to pursue what is right, what is holy. Pray for the strength to walk away from what is not. You don't have to condemn something to oppose it - you need only refrain from it. Set the example, be the role model Christ calls you to be for others. Listen for the trumpet - for on that day, there will be no other chances!
