We each have the opportunity to do what is right or what is wrong. Every person has free will in the life they want to live. However, only through our obedience to God will we be saved and go to heaven. Nobody has to do this, for we can freely discard God’s laws and sin all we want to. However, on judgment day, these people will be accountable for their unbelief and sinful actions. First, they will wake up in hell and then find out in judgment that their names are not written in the book of life. This will cause them to be found guilty and be then thrown into the lake of fire. Through the Lord God’s lips it is written, “he that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (Revelation 22:11-14) God rewards those who follow Him, but allows people to make their own decisions also. If people want to remain in their sins and be punished later, He lets them.
It is very sad to see people walk away from God, especially when they lived many years for Him. I will never understand why people do this. I sin all the time, but for me to lose my faith and continue willfully sinning against God, instead of confessing my sins, would make me a real hypocrite. I am sickened when I hear people say they can sin all they want to because they are saved. This means to me that they are not reading all the Bible, just parts that they agree with. But lets see if they are right as we continue reading in Revelation, chapter 22. The Lord Jesus continues and says, “for without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:15-17) My friends and brothers and sisters in the faith, say with me also, come Lord Jesus. My life is Yours. I am sorry for all my sins. Please forgive me. Change my wicked heart, that I might follow You. Amen. God is waiting for you to come to Him.
Oh Lord, You know my heart for You. I have done wrong things and I am so sorry. Forgive me, God. Help me to live a life that is according to Your will. I know that I cannot do this on my own. So I ask that You come and take me by the hand and lead me in the ways of righteousness. Cast out of my life every ounce of sin and darkness, and replace these things with Your love and light. I admit that I am a sinner, but only through Your hand can I become a saint. Never will I ever become this unless You are abiding in my life daily. Therefore, I come to You earnestly in prayer and confessions that You might make me whole. I ask that from here on out, You will take a sinner like me and do a work in me each day, that I might become Your true servant. Lord, I have worked for Your kingdom in the past, but now I am earnest in this desire. I truly wish to be saved and go to heaven. No longer do I wish to live for the flesh, but do as You command me. I have not always loved Your ways, but know that with You abiding in me, I will begin to love Your ways much more than what the flesh desires. Give me clean hands and a pure heart. It is my true desire that You will have mercy for my soul and lead me to be with You in heaven. I believe in You, Jesus. I trust in You. You are my Savior and I love You. Amen.
