Prepare To Meet Thy God
Sermon: Prepare to Meet Your God - Exodus 19 Scriptures: Exodus 19 God as believers did in days of old, we must be prepared to meet. The Bible says, “Prepare to meet thy God.” To “prepare” simply means to “get ready”—get ready for death, get ready for the judgment, get ready. Prepare to Meet Your God, a Funeral Homily Oftentimes the use of such verses of Scripture to lead individuals to eternal life, forgiveness of.
Some people have the idea that they are going to wait until the eleventh hour before they give their hearts to the Lord. But most people who plan to wait until the eleventh hour, die at ten-thirty.
They never get it done. The Folly of Rejecting Christ Salvation is a gift. It is not something that can be earned. Sin is pictured as a master who pays wages. And the awful wages of sin are the separation of body and soul from the presence of God forever.
God absolutely refuses to sell salvation. On the last page of your Bible you will find this final invitation: Salvation is the free gift of God.
Prepare To Meet Thy God Sermon by Ed Wood, Amos - mephistolessiveur.info
We are saved through faith in Jesus who came to the earth, shed His blood on Calvary, and took our sins upon himself. By this act, He secured pardon for our sins. This is a favor that God did for us—and God offers this salvation as a gift to you. I am sure that you are aware of the fact that a gift is not a gift unless it is accepted, and that a pardon is not a pardon if it is refused.
One of the strangest cases in American history centered around a man named George Wilson. He was sentenced by a U. Court in Philadelphia back in to be hanged for robbing the mails, and for murder.
George Wilson declared the pardon was no pardon unless he accepted it. This was a point in law never raised before, because whenever a pardon was issued previously, it was always joyfully accepted. Some may doubt the existence and authority of God.
Some may disbelieve or scorn the thought of the possibility of having to meet God face to face to give account for our deeds. Yet the fact remains that: No amount of contrary belief or unbelief can ever change this fact. No amount of theorizing or philosophizing will ever change this fact.
No amount of objection or protesting will ever change this fact. It is one of the unalterable and eternally fixed decrees of an unchanging and unchangeable God. Good standing, good deeds, good relationships, attainments, etc. Works are only to increase our rewards in heaven.
The meeting will be one of joy or grief, blessedness or anguish, triumph or defeat, salvation or condemnation. There is an absolute desire to meet God in all people. Secular education is not proper preparation to meet God.
He "was educated in all the learning of the Egyptians, and he was a man of power in words and deeds," Acts 7: We will be no more prepared to meet God in judgment than Moses was with only what man can teach us. Denial of the afterlife by the arguments of atheism, the self delusion of either rationalism or emotionalism, or the false comforts brought by false doctrines are all equally inadequate.
Even morality, which many practice to the point of penance, fasting and prayer, without the truth that is known only in the gospel, is inadequate. We can never be good enough to meet God on our own terms or accomplishments. By keeping it according to Thy word. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. But having begun your preparations is not the same as completing your preparations. Consider Noah, who "in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household.
Do you think he would have been willing to risk his life and the lives of his family without making all the preparations that God said to make?
