Earlier this year we had two world-wide, well known individuals called from this life into eternity by God. One of the two heard God’s Voice calling him at a young age and served Him throughout his lifetime. God used him as a tool to reach out to millions of lost people from around the world and bring them to Christ. When he closed his eyes for the last time here and opened them on the other side he was greeted by the words, “… Well done, thou good and faithful servant…enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” [Matthew 25:21]

The second of the two ignored God’s voice, and had nothing to do with Him. He denied God and His Son Jesus Christ, and ignored the inspired and divine Words of the Holy Bible, and sought after the ways and knowledge of the world. When he finally closed his eyes for the last time here and opened them on the other side, he heard God’s voice saying to him, “…Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” [Matthew 25:41]

Each day bring us closer and closer to the time when it will be too late for those who have not repented of their evil and ungodly ways to change and come to Him and acknowledge Him and Lord and Saviour. Soon the hour of the Lord’s Return will be upon us and for millions it will be too late.

The world and its ways think they are better off without God. Are they really? Just look around at the state of the world today. Wars and violence everywhere. Greedy and corrupt world leaders. Hunger and starvation is running rampant while those with plenty refuse to share with those in need. Same sex relationships and other perversions and abominations are treated as normal and natural, while those who stand up against these evils are attacked. The form of mass murder and serial killing known as abortion is being treated as just another medical procedure. Natural disasters are on the increase. False religions and cults are everywhere and are given more protective rights than True Christians and the True Churches of God. The Bible and its teachings are ridiculed. Those who stand for God and His teachings are belittled.

As for the world’s claim of being better off without God, I don’t see how. If anything it is a literal hell on earth and continues to grow worse every day. We must go out into the world and do as Christ Himself commanded us, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” [Matthew 28:19]

As Christians and followers of the One and Only True Living God, it is our responsibility and Divine calling to show the world the need for God and to have Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Despite the opposition the world gives us, we must go forth boldly and proclaims God’s Truths!

Jesus Christ, the Only Incarnate Son of God, died on the cross for us and for our sins. He is the One and Only answer for the problems of the world. He and He alone is what the world needs. It is impossible for man to solve his own problems without God. The state of the world today clearly shows that.

Without Christ there is nothing, only separation from God, which results in eternal damnation. With Christ, there is eternal life in the Glory and Presence of God.

Most of those reading this and hearing these words know the truth. Now we must go forth and spread it to the world, not later, but now. The sooner the better.

Make this Resurrection Remembrance Day a special day in someone’s life. Go out into the world and take a stand for Christ. After all Christ Himself has told us, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” [Matthew 10:31-33] Share the Word of God and the truth of Christ’s sacrifice on The Cross with them so that they may come to know that by grace through faith they may know eternal salvation in Christ and hear the words, “… Well done, thou good and faithful servant…enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” [Matthew 25:21]
