What is sin today was sin yesterday, and what was being done in days of old is still being done nowadays. There just happen to be new ways of committing the same sins and breaking God’s commandments.
Sin is what separates us from God (Isaiah 59:2), and like a soiled robe or garment, it keeps us from being acceptable before Him (Revelation 3:4); but “blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:14).
It is very important to understand that there is no such thing as a “small sin”. Sin is a barrier that thickens every time we practice it and desensitizes us from the things of God. There is no future in sin, “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Once again, what is sin today was sin yesterday.
Advancement in science and technology, telecommunications, and now the Internet make it easier to get on the wrong path.
And though many may think to themselves: “nobody sees me”, God actually does, and this is what He says about it: “there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear (Mark 4:22-23).
Why this site?
There are never been times like the ones we are currently living in, times so dark, so evil, filled with sin, crime, violence and lewdness. Any news report, modern day cartoon, movie, or entertainment program on television says it. What is happening in various parts of the globe demonstrates it entirely. There is no doubt about it, “the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John 5:19).
After conquering the world, the Devil is now at work in the Church of God. Today, many of our Church leaders, Bible scholars, and Gospel/Christian singers are more concerned about making money, having their sermons or performances broadcasted on television, releasing books, CDs and DVDs, and living the life of the riches and famous rather then preaching the Gospel of truth.
The Gospel of our Lord is being twisted in every possible way to justify reprehensible lifestyle, unjust gain, political agendas, idolatry, and even false doctrines – leading the people of God astray.
Yet, the Gospel of Jesus is a gospel of repentance and self denial.
Jesus said in Mark 8:34-38: “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
Just like in the time of old, God has set before us today: “life and death, blessing and cursing”, and urges us to “choose life”, that both us and our descendants may live (Deuteronomy 30:19-20).
The Lord says: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14).
Why would anyone choose death and to go to Hell, that place of torment (Luke 16:19-31)? Why would anyone make the choice not to enter God’s Kingdom when this one has come full strength to us?
The Bible states that at the end, the dead, small and great, will stand before God. Book will be opened, and another book will also be opened, which is the Book of Life. The dead will be judged according to their works, by the things which are written in the books. Then Death and Hades will be cast into the lake of fire, that is the second death, and anyone not found written in the Book of Life will also be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:12-15).
Hades (or Hell) is not the second death… The lake of fire is the second death.
Thus, after being tormented (by the Devil and his angels) for days, years, decades, and centuries for some, people in Hades whose name cannot be found in the Book of Life of the Lamb will be thrown into the lake of fire to be tormented – again. Think about it!
However God’s will is not that any man, woman, or children ends up in the lake of fire, therefore He has laid down a plan. This plan is reveled to us thought His word.
Jesus-Christ, the only Son of God came to earth to offer Himself up for us so that “whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Jesus-Christ is the only way, the only truth, and the life. No one goes to (God) the Father except through Him (John 14:6). For “there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
About this site
Inspired by the Lord, this website is to bring awareness to the daily transgressions we as believers or non-believers are guilty of before the Lord; Transgressions that deprive us from the free gift of God that is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23).
Through this site, we would like to encourage all those who have already made the decision to follow the Lord to build themselves up on the most holy faith, to pray in the Holy Spirit, to keep themselves in the love of God, and keep looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life (Jude 1:20-21).
For those who have not made this decision yet, we urge them to “Seek the LORD while He may be found, to call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; and to our God, For He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6-7).
There is an open door for salvation [right now] for anyone who believes in Christ Jesus. Therefore, We encourage those who are still hesitating and making excuses to repent before the LORD like in the time of the prophet Jonah (Jonah 3:1-10).
That they hear the voice of the Lord saying “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:14-16); And “walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15-16).
Jesus-Christ is the only answer, the only one who redeems us from sin with His precious blood (1 Peter 1:18-20).
Give Him your life today and follow Him with all of your heart, for Him alone has the words of eternal life (John 6:68).
