Serving the king of the dead
The god of this world
I may be stepping on some feet with this article. This is as close to “fire and brimstone” I get. I was in my bed last night trying to sleep. The sleep (when it came) was restless. The thoughts about God kept coming into my head. There is only one true God. I kept thinking, there is only one true God. The message I was getting in my sleep was this one true God is the Christian God. This one true God is the God of three persons. There is only one God and three parts of this one God, God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.
This brings me to my point and what was keeping me up all night. The god of this world is Satan. The Christian God is a jealous God. He commands to us accept Him as the only God. He is God our Father. He is Jesus our savior. He is the Holy Spirit who intercedes for us. This is where the “fire and brimstone” comes in. If you do not accept God as the only God, you are accepting the god of this world. We already said the god of this world is Satan.
I have a fourteen year old daughter who believes you can be good and go to heaven when you die. She is a normal teenager who believes she knows everything. You cannot tell her a thing because she already knows it. This is how the world around us is. They believe they know what the truth is without knowing the Truth. If you read your Bible correctly, you learn one major theme. If you are not serving the one true God you are against Him. If you are not following God, you are following Satan, the god of this world.
Satan will come to people in many forms. He may offer you riches if you turn away from God and follow him. Satan will offer you a beautiful woman or man as a trade-off. Satan may offer you a great job if you follow his road instead of God’s road. Many people are following Satan and they do not even know it. This is where the Christian comes in.
Our duty is to walk down the straight and narrow path. We are to serve one God. He is the one and true God. Jesus died for each one of us. He already defeated death and Satan. The God of this world has already been defeated. He knows it, but he is still full of pride. Many people of the world do not realize their god has already been defeated by our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus rose from the grave and is seated at the right hand of God in heaven.
The world is lost. There are lost souls all around us. It is our duty as Christian’s to show the lost souls of this world who the one true God is. We must offer them the salvation that Jesus freely gave each and every one of us. It is their choice to decide whether they will follow the one true God or follow Satan, the god of this world.
If you are out there and you believe you can build your own Tower of Babel to heaven, you are wrong. It does not matter how much good you do if you are doing the good for the wrong god or the wrong reason. You cannot force your way in to heaven. You must believe in Jesus as your Savior. You must ask Him for forgiveness. You must ask Him to take over your life. You must be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins. The hard part is living in a world Satan rules. The hard part is waiting for our Lord and Savior to come back and take us all to heaven to live with Him. It takes patience and perseverance to live your life as a Christian. Keep your eyes on the straight and narrow path. When you finish this life full of dark clouds and storms, you will finally reach the promise of a new life in Heaven. God bless each of you on your journey. Remember, if you are not serving the one true God, you are serving Satan.
