The GRAVE DANGER we are all in

 

Romans 8:5-8

King James Version

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; 

but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; 

but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: 

for it is not subject to the law of God, 

neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh 

cannot please God.


There are kind people.

There are generous people.

There are wonderful people.

But only GOD is good, as defined by the LORD JESUS.

Luke 18:18-19

King James Version

18 And a certain ruler asked him, 

saying, 

Good Master, 

what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

19 And Jesus said unto him, 

Why callest thou me good? 

none is good, 

save one, 

that is, 

God.


It's always good to turn to SCRIPTURE, and look from God's perspective.

Lest we think our philanthropy, and good works merit salvation.

This world serves a different god.

Unless you're born again, you won't know the GOD who must prevail.

To know the SPIRIT of GOD, you must be "born of water, and of the Spirit".

The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD teaches us all things.

I serve only the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

I do not serve the fallible men of this world.

1 Corinthians 2:5

King James Version

5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, 

but in the power of God.


Unbelievers in the SONSHIP of JESUS, are in grave danger of serving the god of this world.

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.


The world will make "merchandise" of us.

2 Peter 2:3
King James Version
3 And through covetousness shall they 
with feigned words make merchandise of you: 
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, 
and their damnation slumbereth not.

The world is a well "without water".

2 Peter 2:17
King James Version
17 These are wells without water, 
clouds that are carried with a tempest; 
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

The world promotes "wantonness".

2 Peter 2:18
King James Version
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, 
they allure through the lusts of the flesh, 
through much wantonness
those that were clean 
escaped from them who live in error.

The world is a servant of "corruption".

2 Peter 2:19
King James Version
19 While they promise them liberty, 
they themselves are the servants of corruption: 
for of whom a man is overcome, 
of the same is he brought in bondage.

Again, and again, the corrupted world, is returned to its own filth, even after knowing about JESUS.

2 Peter 2:20
King James Version
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world 
through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, 
they are again entangled therein, 
and overcome, 
the latter end is worse with them 
than the beginning.

And yet, there is no more sacrifice after this.

Hebrews 10:26
King James Version
26 For if we sin wilfully 
after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, 
there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

There is only one SAVIOR.

Acts 4:10-12
King James Version
10 Be it known unto you all, 
and to all the people of Israel, 
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, 
whom ye crucified, 
whom God raised from the dead, 
even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, 
which is become the head of the corner.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
 for there is none other name under heaven given among men, 
whereby we must be saved.

If we are to survive, we are to focus on JESUS alone.

Colossians 3:1-2
King James Version
3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 
seek those things which are above, 
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, 
not on things on the earth.
