Its Closer Than You Think (The Warnings Every Believer Should Be Know Before Christ Comes)

[Music] foreign if you're anything like me as you grow older as you have children and start a family you begin to think about life how precious life is how fragile it is at the same time you begin to think about how much time you have on this Earth and more importantly where your Eternal destination is and so verses such as Hebrews chapter 9 verse 27 really hit home the Bible reads and as it is appointed unto men wants to die but after this the judgment do you know what this says to me it says that there is a day of accountability there is a day that every believer every man and woman will have to be accountable for their actions each of us will have to take responsibility about what we did and what we didn't do we'll have to answer for every word we spoke every thought in our minds and even our actions and deeds Matthew 12 36 says I tell you on the day of judgment people will account for every careless word they speak this is accountability Romans Chapter 14 verse 12 says so then each of us will give an account of himself to God once again we're told you will have to answer to God this is accountability and so the question becomes how am I living am I regulating my thoughts am I taking this thought over here and saying you don't belong in my mind be Cast Away am I filtering my words do I stop pause and think if the words I am about to speak are helpful or harmful are you living in such a way that you know you will be accountable the Bible says in second Corinthians chapter 5 verse 9 to 11 so whether we are at home or away we make it our aim to please him for we must all appear before the Judgment seat of Christ so that everyone may receive what is due for what he has done in the body whether good or evil foreign therefore knowing the fear of the Lord we persuade others but what we are is known to God and I hope it is known also to your conscience the Judgment seat of Christ is where you will be accountable for your Deeds your thoughts and your motives you will be accountable for your works and so we all have decisions to make and we make all kinds of decisions each and every day and these decisions we make affect us all in different ways now I want to bring your attention to Hebrews 4 verse 13 which says nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account this verse reminds us that God sees everything and that all of our actions whether good or bad all of our actions whether done in darkness or light everything will be exposed on Judgment Day as I reflect on this passage I am reminded of a story that took place during the time of the great flood you see there was a man named Noah who was born by God to build an ark to save his family and the animals from the flood that was coming but the people around him did not believe him and continued with their sinful ways some paid no mind to his words because they thought it was all nonsense others probably thought they could get away with the sin they enjoy however when the flood came it exposed the wickedness of their hearts they had been given a chance to repent but they didn't they were given a chance to turn away from wickedness but they rejected that chance and so God's judgment came to Earth their pride greed lust and sin it had led them down a path of destruction and there was no hiding from the consequences of their actions similarly Hebrews 4 13 reminds us whatever is done in darkness will be exposed on Judgment Day the things that we do in secret the sins that we think no one knows about will be brought to light there will be no hiding from the All-Seeing eyes of God but you see if you can hear me today there is still time there is still an opportunity to turn your life around you see we can either continue in our sinful ways and face the Judgment of God or we can turn to him in Repentance and receive his forgiveness and Grace the Amplified translation from Matthew chapter 7 verse 13 to 14 says enter through the narrow gate for wide is the gate and Broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss and there are many who enter through it but small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to everlasting life and there are few who find it have you decided to walk on the narrow road where it's difficult to travel but leads to everlasting life the Bible says there are few who find it or have you decided to walk on the broad Road where you will always have your way without limitations you decide the pleasures of this world are the discipline of righteousness you decide the pursuit of money power material things or the pursuit of godliness you decide in conclusion Hebrews 4 13 is a powerful reminder that God sees everything and that all our actions will be exposed on Judgment Day the story of Noah shows us the consequences of sin and how it will eventually be exposed but as Christians we have the hope of Salvation through Jesus Christ let us turn to him in Repentance knowing that he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness according to the Bible may we live our lives in a way that brings honor and glory to God knowing that we will one day give an account for all that we have done are you living as though you know your days are numbered are you storing up treasure in heaven with the few days you have left here on Earth are you fighting and striving to crucify your flesh daily are you practicing the love of God in your life and seeking to do good instead of evil many of us have situations that make us feel like times won't ever change some of us may even be clinging on to certain things certain people bad habits or private sins but I want to make this urgent announcement to you and I pray that you hear me loud and clear you don't have time to be holding on to friends who are pulling you into sin you don't have time to be tolerating those things that pollute your mind with lust and unclean thoughts the Lord wants us to be free free from bondage and oppression he came that we might have life and have it more abundantly but it's up to us to receive the gift of Freedom which he offers us take a look around and see the signs of the times there are famines pestilences an increased number of natural disasters and rumors of War everywhere the final Prophecies of the Bible are being fulfilled before our very eyes Christ is soon to return [Music] foreign
