Did You Get That Briefcase Of Money I Sent You? Wink Wink Wink

Before i mentioned that if we know that people are making errors in their faith, we need to correct them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. God reminded me that we rebuke them sharply so that they may live! Because if they are not told of the errors they are making, they will not be saved.

Titus Chapter 1

13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

These Christians think that they will be saved, yet they will not, if someone doesn’t inform them of their errors. They will become those Christians Jesus told us about in Scripture.

St. Matthew Chapter 7

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Why does Jesus say He never knew them? Jesus doesn’t know them, because as we also learned, God does not know people who are sinners, doing evil.

1 Peter Chapter 3

12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

As i also mentioned before, these folks will be praying to God with bloody hands, and being unforgiven of all their sins, and God will not hear their prayers. We can only be saved through repentance and remission of sins. God is Pure Goodness. God can have no part of anything evil. It’s impossible. It’s like God is Fire, and evil is gasoline. But if no one tells these people of the error of their ways, they won’t have any way of knowing, and they will be sinners, and they won’t be saved. They will end up outside the city, wailing and gnashing their teeth. Therefore we rebuke them sharply, so that won’t happen to them.

But, that’s just it. We tell them, we tell everyone how to be saved. We tell people that the Holy Bible contains the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, and the directions on how to enter, and yet many people just disbelieve, without even reading the Bible to study it and see if it’s True. Well that’s their own fault then when they die and find out God’s Word is True, and they just discarded it offhand, without even checking to see for themselves. But, that’s just the thing. Because God does not promise us that everyone is going to go to Heaven. No. But God does promise us that everyone is given a chance to be saved and go to Heaven. And so we tell people, so that they can live. Not everyone will choose Heaven, but everyone will be given a chance to go to Heaven if they want to. That’s why God sacrificed His Only Begotten Son, Jesus, so that everyone would have a chance to be saved from hell and spend Eternity in Heaven, with God, instead.

That helps me to understand that my mission is to tell people about the chance they have to go to Heaven. My mission is not to save people, necessarily, but only to tell them how they can be saved. Because not everyone is promised to go to Heaven, but everyone is given an Invitation to Heaven. So that’s why we preach the gospel and tell people how to be saved. That’s what we do.

When we become Christians, we make ourselves humble and subject to humiliation and we learn to be patient, and longsuffering. Longsuffering means we will suffer a long time. We will be patient for a long time. Now i begin to understand why Patience is a virtue. Now this humble life of longsuffering turns many people away from Christianity. Many people think they are here on Earth to please their own body, instead of pleasing God. They cannot understand such a thing! This is important to remember for new Christians, the longsuffering. We have to dedicate ourselves to God for the long run. We have to plan to suffer for a long, long time. We may suffer a short time, then cry out to God, OK! I did my suffering, that’s long enough! But we must remember that we need to be longsuffering, not just for a short time. But the good news is, the longer you’ve been suffering, the better you get at it.

I’m not sure if it was head bang, or head band, or head bender, or head bandit, or whatever it was. But i also mentioned before about the senselessness of so-called “Daylight savings time”. Gosh, what are you going to do with all the daylight you saved? Wow, how does it feel having all this extra time? But there is no “extra time”. It’s just foolishness. Everyone is forced to change their clocks by one hour, for no good reason. All it does is make them tired and confused. What’s the point to even change the clock an hour? They are just going to change it back again in six months! It must be an American thing. It’s totally senseless. Yet everyone does it. Why? Because if everyone jumped off a cliff, that’s what they do. People don’t even ask questions like “Why?” anymore. But tweakers tweak out, and losers lose and sheep get shorn. That’s what they do.
