How much knowledge do you think you possess of everything that could be known in the entire universe? Do you think you might possibly know 5% 1% 1/2% or maybe .1%?
Let us look closer at that thought. How much knowledge do you know about the country that you live in? Every person, vehicle, building, field, tree, plant, animal, fish, down to every insect, creeping thing, and even things we can’t see with the naked eye; cells, germs, molecules, DNA, and atoms? What about everything in the entire world? Everything in every deep jungle, in every sandy desert, to the tops of every mountain, and to the depths of every pond, stream, lake, sea, and ocean? How about every planet, asteroid, comet, and the sun of our solar system? Our Galaxy and all 250 BILLION stars not to mention planets and moons in our Galaxy? Our Universe and every detail of every 2 TRILLION or so Galaxies. How about every one of them and every event since the beginning of time?
At first you may have thought you knew a lot maybe even .001%, but after thinking deeply, it might be more like .0 with a TrillionZeros 1% of all knowledge is more accurate. Just thinking of how much there is to know, and knowledge that there is possible to know, it is MIND BLOWING!!!! But God knows it all!
Do you believe there is a God? He would have to be so powerful and extremely intelligent to create everything in the Universe? To design, craft, put everything together in such brilliance, order, consistency, and able to hold everything together.
If you know so little, and you don’t believe or say there is no God, could you be wrong? He is there? You just don’t have the knowledge of Him? Could everything be here by chance? Is that even remotely possible?
Have you ever seen an explosion put things in order, or create anything from that explosion? Perhaps you have seen an explosion create a working and functional smartphone? Yes? No! Never has anything be created in this way.
If it is impossible for nothing to create anything, then it is also impossible for something of non-intelligence to create anything of intelligence, and also for something like this to create anything at all!
There Has To Be A Creator!! And since there is a Creator, He must be Good and Perfect, to make everything so complex, ordered, and beautiful! If He is Good and Perfect, then He could not tolerate Evil! Because “Good” means moral perfection. If so He has to reward Good and punish Evil!
So the Big question is, “are you Good?” Lets see if you are, by honestly answering some simple questions. How many times have you lied in your entire life? Have you ever stolen anything that didn’t belong to you, no matter how small or insignificant? Wouldn’t that make you a liar and a thief?
Have you ever coveted someone’s possessions or wife or husband? Or made anything at all more important to yourself than God? If so you would be covetous and an idolater!
Jesus said in Matthew 5:21-30 ” You have heard it said of old you shall not murder, but I say to you, if you hate your brother you have committed murder in your heart already.” Jesus also said, “You have heard it of old, you shall not commit adultery, but I say to you, anyone who looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery in their hearts already.” If you have hated someone or lusted after someone in your heart, that would make you a murderer and or an adulterer at heart.
We can plainly see that none of us are Good. “All of us have fallen short of the Glory of God.” Romans 3:23
We are all criminals in God’s eyes, and we have all broken His Law the Ten Commandments. Because God is Good, He is also Just and Righteous and He has to judge and punish sin wherever it is found.
One day you will die and you will have to face God and He will find you guilty and sentence you to Hell which is His prison for us sinners. Does that bother you? Does that scare you? It should! I don’t want you to go to such a horrible place as Hell.
But did you know that God made a way that you can escape, your punishment that you deserve was paid for. God sent His only son Jesus Christ to the earth 2000 years ago to suffer, die, and take the entire Wrath of God upon himself to pay for your sins and mine. Then He rose from the dead, therefore defeated sin and death. He is now alive and seated at the right hand of the Throne of God.
This means that God can legally dismiss your case.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Today, there are three things you need to do: Confess your sins to God, Repent, which means turning away from your life of sin, and trust fully in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If you do that from your heart, God promises to forgive you of all your sins and give you eternal life in Heaven as a free gift.
There is a God! The Universe and all Creation Cries out and proclaims that He does exist. He says that if you seek Him with all your heart you will find Him. You must have faith in Him, for the Word of God says, “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
He will save you from an eternity of suffering in Hell.
Your sins will be paid for, one way or the other, either by Jesus and His death on the cross, or by you. You will pay for them for all eternity in Hell.
Please consider this! This is more important than all the riches of the world. The only thing you will take from this world into eternity is your eternal soul. Make this decision today before you leave from here, you may not make it home! Before you sleep tonight. You may not wake up tomorrow. We are not promised anything more than the breath in our lungs right now! Make your eternal destination Heaven!
