The Verdict is In!!

It's been a few Years now but many has forgotten about it, but does anyone remember Casey Anthony trial?? Some of you may and some of you may not. But the other day I was thinking of many things and was thinking of the trials of the lost folks, (sinners) who will face when they are standing Face to Face with God.

What will they say, What will they be thinking, or will they say I am ok. Well folks all I have to say is this, and here is the title of this message.

The verdict is in!!

Well the entire nation it seems....watched a young mother stand in wait before a JUDGE for what seemed an eternity for a verdict that would announce her fate, In the eyes of most, this woman was guilty, guilty, guilty and most likely she is and was!!

But what stuck out to me is "that moment" of waiting for an answer of which she had no idea........what was going through her mind?....."what is My Verdict?" "will I die?" "am I guilty?" "what will I be doing one week from today?" "I'm not a bad person?" "It was an accident?" "I've got away with murder?" "I don't deserve this?" "It was my childhood's fault" It was to be Her moment of reckoning, and man was the world tuned and glued in!!

Couldn't Help but to think of how it's a picture of what is to come for sooooo many lives, having to WAIT for a verdict has got to be excrutiating, I just can't imagine. But I did get to thinking and wondering If People realize that someday they too will have a Verdict Read, that they too will stand before an accuser and a Judge? And this accuser will have had all his ducks in a row, in fact he's master planned their demise and has insured their length of stay ....The Judge will have every idle word on record and even the hidden secret things will be made public. You see, the Bible Says all people who have been given life, are appointed a time to YOU ...

You will have died, You will then be summoned to appear before the Most Supreme of All Courts, You will be called by name and ushered in ....You, Like Casey Anthony ...will be standing before a Judge awaiting an ETERNAL VERDICT.........a Verdict determined by what you did with the Life given you? Did you live for self and sin and pleasure?...Did you Break God's Law's? You've heard of The Ten Commandments Right?....IF Found Guilty there is absolutely only thing that will happen, you will be quickly and resolutely thrown into an eternal holding place of which there is no escape and the Bible says that people there wail and gnash their teeth...wallowing in guilt and shame and torment....

And it won't get any better because at some point you will be thrown into a Lake of Fire of which it will never be quenched and you will find no relief, wishing for all eternity to just exist no more, but were created to live somewhere eternally and unfortunately IF you have been found Guilty ....Your fate is forever sealed and HELL is Your Reward However, there will be those who when they die...they too will be brought before the same accuser and the same Judge.....

They will be ushered in....but standing in front of the Accuser will be one we will call THE ADVOCATE and He's the Greatest Public Defender of All Time ...They will be excused from all Court Proceedings...their case has already been closed!!! "SETTLED OUT OF COURT" A PLEA DEAL WAS WROUGHT

...The Accuser will try and protest...BUT before He can even speak...the Public Advocate will say "Hey Dad (remember the Judge?..that's His Dad)...."Hey Dad, I've brought before You another one of my faithful servants".....The Father will look at His Son, The Accuser will scream "FAITHFUL?" "BUT ...BUT.....I SAW HIM ...I SAW HER...SHE WAS GUILTY of this crime in 1998 or 2007...she was an adulterer, he was a cheat".....but He will be drowned out....

The Father will Only see the Advocate standing in the way....The Judge...will say "well, Well Done...thy good and faithful servant...enter in" The One who will have been Pardoned ...was actually pardoned 2,000 years ago, before they were even born Christ Had already died for them and that person will run with all their might and begin to bow and worship at the feet of Him who's hands and feet were pierced, they will cry great tears and He will dry their tears and stand them to their feet and say "Welcome Home" They will have "no waiting period" for their verdict was handled by THE CROSS....and your verdict can be too.

You see, You can go to that courtroom guilty as you are and take your chances
I'm sure on every account there would be many who could justifiably accuse like they have with Casey..."she's a murderer!" And they would be absolutely right!!! Have you ever lied even Once? "then your a liar", Have you ever lusted at another? Then Your an Adulterer!! Have You ever hated? Then Jesus say's your a MURDERER!!! ...You will be guilty as charged and will DESERVE what you have coming!!!

The Wrath of Almighty God but Here's where I come to You ....Your Guilty...You have no hope in that Courtroom ...but there's someone I'd love to refer you too!!! He's The One who Already Paid Your Fine....2,000 Years ago, He came to this earth because of YOU!!!! He knew you'd need Him, He knew You'd broken the Law. So He came and willfully took what You have coming, He went and was bruised and beaten and scarred and battered, all this before He was then laid upon a Cross, nailed with spikes into His feet and Hands and then Raised Up Publicly for every eye to see him hang in shame FOR YOU!!!

Then 3 days later, after having been laid to rest ....this Man Called Jesus rose from the grave....proving He is The Son of Almighty God, The Way, The Truth and the Life and He told us IF we will believe that ..If we will Confess that ...If we will call upon Him ...He will stand in our place before the accuser and Judge giving us not what we deserve but rather Eternal Life!!!! What is He asking that you would do now? Turn from the Lies, turn from the deceit, turn from sin and turn to Him and be saved!!

So Casey Anthony Stood before an imperfect Court and an Imperfect Judge and may have temporarily gotten away with murder......but this life is but a vapor and someday she will have another court appointment!! I pray she hears this news of Jesus Christ or she will have no hope this time....will you?
The Verdict is Already In!!

(2 Peter10-22)

Today my heart was burden of people in churches claiming to be followers of Christ but in fact many are followers of themselves.

Peter didn’t leave much room for doubt about how he perceived false teachers. As these evil men infiltrated the churches, bringing with them their false teachings, wrong motives, and sinful lifestyles, they harmed many believers. They claimed to be followers of Christ, having heard the gospel message, but then they distorted that message. Peter wrote that “it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment” (2:21). Peter did not say that believers should be tolerant and understanding of these false teachers.

 He did not say that the false teachers should be treated carefully and lovingly. Instead, he called them evil and commanded believers not to be deceived by them. Overall, believers should be tolerant, accepting people from many different races and backgrounds. This is vital for the growth of the church. But we should not tolerate anyone who teaches what is opposed to God’s Word or better yet we should not tolerate anyone who always giving glory to themselves and not to God.

You can tell these folks by what they say or how they act many are what you call having the I Syndrome I this, I that I done this and so forth and many of them opposes the pastor of the church and think they know what’s best, But in fact they refuse to submit to the pastors authority in all matters of the church and God’s word and believe in themselves thinking well I am ok when in fact they are not.

Folks, Be warn of evil teachers or men in  churches who are not true followers of Jesus Christ, because they will lead you down a wrong path and can cause many to stumble. Stay true to God's words and you can never go wrong. Amen.

With Little or NO Warning!

In the Last few years, we all have witnessed events of human tragedy and devestation that have come with little or no warning

On Sept 11, 2001...

People went about their daily lives just like any other day, but then suddenly "without warning" The First Jet Crashed into one of the Twin Towers

shockwaves were sent across the globe as we watched in horror as thousands died and our nation grieved....

Then came an event that many had never even heard of "a Tsunami?" "what's that ...a type of Pizza?" But in 2004 ....With Little or No Warning an earthquake occured in the Indian Ocean With a magnitude of between 9.1 and 9.3, it is the second largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismo ... triggered a Tsunami that ended up killing over 230,000 people in 14 countries

Then not near as large in it's scope came the Hurricanes of the Gulf, most notable...Hurricane Katrina

Though there were warnings blared preceeding this event..there were thousands who decided to "take on the storm" and found themselves at loss

then came...The People of Haiti ..dealing with the daily human struggle ...found themselves in one of the worst earthquakes in modern history...With Little or NO WARNING!!
(The January 12th earthquake in Haiti is the most lethal natural disaster of the past 20 years. On February 12th, the Associated Press reported that official Haitian government estimates of the dead had been revised upwards, now reaching 230,000 dead.)

and then came Chile

Seismologists estimate that the Chilean earthquake was so powerful that it may have shortened the length of the day by 1.26 microseconds and moved the Earth's figure axis by 8 cm or 2.7 milliarcseconds.

Again this happened With Little or No Warning!

Then there was Japan, Earthquake + Tsunami + Nuclear Disaster, ...thousands died, again with "with little or No Warning"

Alabama Tornado's, hundreds of people died "with little or no warning" ...."Joplin Missouri" "One of the deadliest tornado's in US HISTORY ....With Little or No Warning!!

The Word of God says "it's appointed unto man once to die and THEN Judgement"

In just a few examples listed above... hundreds of thousands of people were going through their daily routines...when suddenly "their appointed TIME" came ...again... most with little or NO warning and every single one of those people who died with out Christ, were taken immediately to an eternal courtroom and stood before Almighty God as Judge of the life that they lived that had rejected every opportunity given to accept a Free Gift (eternal life), but instead now face eternal punishment with no hope for escape.....will you please stop and think for real? I mean IF that was YOU, IF tonight a tornado fires up and heads toward your house, If an earthquake rumbles, if a car crosses a median....

You might be here reading and have this mindset THAT YOU are immune...that you are invincible...But YOU ARE NOT!!!

You might say, I'm a fear mongerer ...trying to manipulate you by fear... .

Our Lord told us to REPENT OR Perish, Repentance begins with a change of mind that leads to a change in direction in one's life

in other "Stop and Think" and then react to what You hear by believing the message and it's NOT just the thought that counts...

the Heart of this message is simply to make sure that when Your "appointed time" comes...It hasn't been "without warning" and that you would "stop and think"

My God, has put on my heart to warn you to "Flee the Wrath" to come, He's not willing that any should perish, He's offering You a way of escape... Before you were even born, while You have Yet been living as if there is No God and there is No Judgement Day... He has already sent His Son Jesus Christ to Die in Your Place ....2,000 years ago Jesus Died because of You and the laws that You have personally broken, He was taking your place because He created You in Love and for a purpose of which was and is ..for you to Know Him by entering into an eternal covenant relationship ...graced to You by The Heart of Almighty God.

Please Hear, Please Stop and think and Please Believe their is an EMPTY TOMB that Shouts to the Whole World That Jesus Christ Is the Way, The Truth and the Life and He's Your Only REAL Hope for today, and for all eternity

Call Upon Jesus while You still have TIME!!
