TITLE: THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES
TEXT: John 6:53-71
I am not for sure if it is still on Television or not, but there used to be a daytime Soap Opera on television that was called, The Days Of Our Lives, which told the stories of the daily lives of those in upper society, they truly were living a Soap Opera life.
In this short message I want us to take a close look at The Days Of Our Lives that Americans are now living, it too is a Soap Opera.
1. These are Defiant Days Within Our Land.
The middle ground has completely vanished within our nation and within the Church world. We are witnessing a great upheaval within our nation against the Lord Jesus and His eternal Word, upon which our nation has always rested upon.
2. These are Deviant Days Within Our Land.
The long held moral norms within our society have been abandoned for morals and behavior more conducive to the caverns of hell than the streets of a civilized society. In our precious land we now have perversion being praised while purity is cursed and damned as evil.
3. These are Declaring Days Within Our Land.
Each and every person will now be forced to declare their allegiance to Jesus, by continuing to stand by His Eternal Word and the old paths which our nation has always followed, or defiantly declare their rejection of Him and His age old Truths, in favor of the falsehoods and doctrines of demons that has now all but completely seduced our entire nation and leading her down a dark path to her destruction.
4. These are Departing Days Within Our Land.
Americans too are finding it harder and harder to accept the demands of the Gospel and the cost of following Jesus. We are also seeing the masses departing from Jesus, departing from the Words of life to follow the lies of the evil one.
5. These are Defining Days Within Our Land.
Make no mistake, these days are defining days as well as defiant days. Each one’s declared allegiance will clearly define the true state of their eternal soul (just as it did when the masses who departed from Christ in John 6 proved that they had never been part of the redeemed), to either be lost or saved. Even the hypocrite no longer has the courage to hide his sin under the umbrella of the Church. Even the Judas’ are now openly betraying Jesus and exposing that they have never ever truly been anything but a devil. These days will not only define the state of their soul, but it will also define the destiny to which each soul is headed, to heaven or to hell.
6. These are Determining Days Within Our Land.
Each person who will be tempted to denounce Jesus and declare their allegiance to Satan (and make no mistake about it, we are told in 1 Samuel 15:23 that “Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft…”, to join the broad road of rebellion that America has now chosen, is as much serving the Devil as is practicing witchcraft would be), must understand that to do so will determine that you will spend an eternity in hell.
These are the days which Jesus is abandoning man to his choices. Your choice to reject Jesus may very well be final, without hope of ever undoing it. America is sinning away her day of grace and millions of Americans are choosing the same path.
Jesus said; “For whosoever will (would) save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the Gospel’s, the same shall find it”. [Mark 8:35] Millions of Americans are now deciding that it is no longer worth it to give their lives to Jesus, they are choosing rather to keep it so they may do with it as they wish. In 50 years nearly everyone of the foolish souls will find themselves among the damned in hell, tormented in eternal flames, weeping and gnashing their teeth, and cursing this generation of Americans and her leaders that deceived them and cost them their eternal souls. God have mercy on this poor deceived nation of damned souls!
THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES, it’s not a TV show, this is real life, choose wisely what you will do with them, whether it be to join the throngs who are departing from Jesus, or to surrender your life to Him, knowing if we suffer with Him, we will also one day reign with Him.
