Option #2, in this day of getting ready for upcoming campaigns for
election or re-election, it sounds a whole lot like a choice at the
polls. It in fact is a choice, Phm 1:14 14-16
But I came to a decision in my heart to do nothing without your
consent, in order that your goodness might not be as it were by
compulsion but of your own free will. For perhaps on this account he was
parted for a brief time in order that you might be possessing him fully
and forever, no longer in the capacity of a slave, but above a slave, a
brother, a beloved one, beloved most of all by me, how much more than
that by you, both in his human relationship and in the Lord.
gave us the free will to accept Him and His ways, that you might be
free from the sentence of death. However; in todays society, living
with the polutions of today’s world, few seem to understand, we make
unwitting choices that can still effect the outcome of our eternal
residence. Thus whether knowingly or unknowingly, we choose option #2.
Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day
whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were
on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose
land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
above scriptures tell us to make a conscious choice to follow God in
all His ways, choosing life or option #1. This offers the downside of
things, either choose God or the masters of your own making, option #2.
So what could I be saying that to me and many others is so important,
that I write this to you for you to be informed and remain redeemed,
working out your salvation with fear and trembling? I’m letting you
know, because some of yoou have chosen, wrong paths, your eternal
resting place, may not be where you hoped.
It’s time we got our thinking correct and leave our assumptions,
leaning to our own understanding, out of the mix, and choose the
abundant everlasting life of God through our redeemer, Christ Jesus. Mat 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
Mat 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Mat 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
into the Kingdom of Heaven is only guaranteed to those who overcome, by
doing the Word and will of God. That just totally blows the cliché’
"once saved, always saved completely out of the water, like the sinking
ship it is. Father God made a perfect point for us to follow, a set of
commands as it were, that we will be saved. How can we know what those
commands are if we do not obey? Read, study, love, apply faith, walk in
and with the Spirit, know God’s Word, know God’s will for your life,
dig deep and keep digging, even if yoour back is sore and yoour hands
are bloody from the labor. Mat 13:44 Again, the kingdom
of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man
hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he
hath, and buyeth that field.
Mat 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Mat 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Mat 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Mat 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Mat 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
Mat 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
Mat 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
choice is up to the individual, option #1, life or option #2, absolute
suffering and the second death. For those who choose option # 1, life,
let us never forget to hold the weaker vessels up in prayer and speak
the washing of the Water of life over them, in faith and hope, they will
make a better choice. Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our
faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of
Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, but remember, option #2 still exists in this. Isa 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Rom 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my
presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own
salvation with fear and trembling.
Let us all make proper choices, choose you this day whom you will serve and God bless you.
