OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 15, 2022 (THE URGENCY FOR SALVATION)
TOPIC: THE URGENCY FOR SALVATION
“But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” – (Hebrews 3:13)
READ: Romans 13:11-14 (KJV)
My beloved, if man makes a threat, circumstances can go against him so that he would not be able to carry it out. However, when God warns of impending doom and provides a way of escape, we had better pay attention to it because He is more than able to bring it to pass.
Many people have scoffed at the warning of the impending eternal damnation that awaits sinners by ignoring the message of salvation. Such people are thinking that just because the return of Christ is yet to come, the message doesn’t matter. If man says a thing, it may not come to pass; however, when God speaks, thousands of years may pass by, but that word will still be fulfilled.
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. – (Matthew 24:37-39)
God threatened to wipe out the whole world with a flood and then instructed Noah to build an ark to save himself, his family and two of every other sort of living thing. For over a century, the flood did not happen, but Noah ensured he constructed the ark. When the flood eventually started, those who despised the word of God were doomed. There were many prophecies about Jesus Christ in the Old Testament but the fulfilment of His birth came thousands of years after. No matter how long it may seem to take, the word of God will surely come to pass.
Those who scoff at the word of God now will eventually have themselves to blame. You may have been delaying your salvation to a later date, (2 Corinthians 6:2) says: For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. What makes you think that you will have another opportunity to repent before you are called home? This moment is the only one you are sure of: use it to get yourself right with God before it is too late.
Surrender your life to Christ today; not tomorrow – TODAY.
