“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:18-20
The deceitfulness of Satan has led people from all walks of life to believe various things about Almighty God. We find a heavy emphasis on the love aspect of God’s nature. While it is true that God is the very definition of love (1 Corinthians 13:4-7), there is a lot more to the story than just the love of God.
Many seem to think that believing in His existence and counting on the fact that He is loving is all that is needed to make ones way into heaven after they die; however, simply acknowledging Him is wholly inadequate. Christ didn’t die so you could stay the same. A life change must occur. God’s wrath is coming for those who deny His existence, but also for those who acknowledge Him with their mouths yet deny Him with their lifestyles. All roads do not lead to the top of the same mountain. That would make Jesus a liar, for He clearly said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by (or through) me.” (John 14:6).
For those who don’t believe God would harm anyone and that we are all going to heaven except those we deem unworthy like the Ted Bundy’s and Adolph Hitler’s of the world, read the Bible. We don’t decide who goes to heaven. We only decide on our own eternal destination. All men have sinned and are unworthy of entrance into God’s heaven on their own merits (Romans 3:23). It’s only those who are washed in the blood of Christ whose names will be found in the “Lambs Book of Life” (Revelation 13:8 & 21:27). Choose wisely this day who you will serve, the Creator of all things or the Prince of this world. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
