Oh! Let me not perish

It is of certainty that there is life after death because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. There are many sufficient evidences which points to his rising from the dead such as the empty tomb, the rise of Christianity and the miracles, and converts wrought for the past two thousand years. Because Christ has risen, every capable soul without Christ is in danger of perishing and entering unpon an eternity of hell. This is much to be concerned about for it will be a terrible thing for you to be found among the perishing. Ask yourself this solemn question, ‘Am I trusting entirely upon Christ for my salvation and am I sure of my eternal resting place?’ If you are found to be negative, I sincerely plea with you to turn today and call upon Christ for mercy.


It will be a terrible eternity if you are found among those who perish for it is Christ who said, ‘For God so loved the world, that He sent his only Son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life’. Later on in the chapter, Christ warns that whoever does not believe in the Son is condemned already and the wrath of God remains upon him. I plea with you to flee to Christ because if you perish and are found to be in hell, there will be no comfort for your soul. There will be none to pity you; you will look to the left, to the right, in front and to your back, looking for a saviour but there will be none to take your case. No one will cry for you and God will hate you forever and for all eternity you must bear the flames day and night. 


The saints of God will look upon you not with pity but rejoicing, not at your misery but at the justice of God, being glad that God is vindicating his justice against the wicked souls who hated him here on earth. Although you may exalt yourself in this world and lift yourself against God and openly oppose the cause of Christ and his gospel, yet in the life after, God will unleash upon you the fierceness of his wrath. It is because I know of the holiness of God and I am sensible of his nature and the coming judgment that I plea with you to flee to Christ, for whilst in hell you may not raise your voice at me and ask me why I told you not of this hellish eternity. God’s infinite anger will burn against you, and there, you will desire his pity more than all the treasures of this earth. Jesus Christ, the Lamb, will also have no pity on you if you should perish - although he is called the friends of sinners, he is only called so in this world, and in the life after He shall trample upon the blood of his enemies.


My friend, now Christ is your friend; he endured the cross for your redemption and will you not have it today while there is life within you. Oh be a sensible soul and flee from the coming judgment. Christ is now your friend, He knocks but will you continue to resist him. For if you will resist now till your death, then he shall no more welcome you. Christ now is seeking your salvation, He came to warn you and will you not listen. Oh let not that day dawn upon you for your lament will be forever, it shall be worse than the grievous pains here and no doctor shall relieve your pains. Please do not be among the souls found to perish but one to have eternal life and be one of the saints who shall forever rejoice in the presence of God for all eternity. Oh my friend let not your soul perish! You may hate me for painting such a picture of your eternity while you are yet without Christ, but I can only speak of the truth and warn you of the gall and bitterness which awaits you. It is because I love you and that tenderly, and I have only opportunity in this world to warn you and to present you with salvation. Please my friend trust in Christ and let not your soul perish.

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
