Come Let Us Reason Together

“To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do fornthe gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.” 1 Corinthians 9:22,23 (KJV)

I call all Atheist, all Muslims, the LGBT community and in fact, who so ever will, come to Jehovah God and believe in Him now. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

If you are in fact correct in your thinking and there is no Jehovah God, then you have lost nothing. However, if I am correct and there is a  God and there is a heaven and there is a hell, then you have lost everything just by not believing

“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as GOD HATH DEALT TO EVERY MAN THE MEASURE OF FAITH”. (Romans 12:3) KJV

You are more blessed by God than you might realize. It is in fact God that allows anyone to deny Him. So, why would God show such kindness to anyone committed to ending His presence in the world?

Well actually, God is not at all in the least intimidated by Atheists, Muslims or the LGBT community. God gives grace and love to everyone and that includes well, everyone. That too is evidence of His great mercy.

“The goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance” (Romans 2:4) KJV. Yes, God even blesses those who don’t believe in Him. God is saying to you, I know you through and through, and I love you anyway. Your eternity is not in man or in anything man can do. Your eternity is in your belief in God! I will tell you that all of us have an eternity and our eternity is a rapidly decreasing number of heartbeats away.

Speaking of eternity, I would miss the mark if I didn’t tell you about Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

What is going to happen to you when you die? Well for one thing your, eternity begins. There will be no disappearing into nothingness. And quite frankly if you think we all evolved from apes, why then are still apes?

Here are real examples of what was actually said on their deathbeds: Sir Francis Newport, the head of an English Atheist club said these final words to those gathered around his deathbed: “I am lost forever! Oh, that  fire! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell”

David Hume, atheist philosopher famous for his skepticism of religion, cried loud on his death bed “I am in flames pull me up – please pull me up” The people standing at his bedside said the desperation in his voice was a horrible scene.

Anton LeVey author of the Satanic Bible and high priest of the religion dedicated to the worship of Satan. One of his famous quotes are “There is a beast in man that needs to be exercised, not exorcised”. His dying words were “Oh my, oh my, what have I done, there is something very wrong…there is something very wrong.” then he died.

Final Deathbed words of Christians: Joseph Everett who was considered a great saint in the early church was dying and he said out loud, “GLORY! GLORY! GLORY!” and continued shouting “GLORY!” for several minutes until he died. Evangelist Billy Graham described his death as “being whisked away by angels to the gates of heaven.

Augustus Toplady, author of the great hymn “Rock of Ages,” who died at the age of 38 shouted “I enjoy heaven already in my soul as my prayers are all converted into praises.”

A person’s final words reflect the life that they lived. What will yours be?

You have an eternity ahead of you and once you die and step into that eternity your options are over. Today is the day of salvation.

And, you are not left all alone to figure this out. God is there waiting for you and He even says come and let us reason together. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18 (KJV)

“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you”. James 4:8 KJV

“They that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”. John 6:37 KJV

Now some may ask, can Atheist, Muslims, the LGBT’s and Christians believe together and live together? Yes, God says we can.  “And He hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”. Acts 17:26 KJV

“Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” Ps 100:3 KJV

God is not a angry old man sitting in a white marble chair waiting for an opportunity to hit you over the head when you do wrong. God created you in His image, and you are important to Him. He wants fellowship with you.

“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ”. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 KJV

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”. Acts 4:12 KJV

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians” 6:7(KJV)

“O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” Romans 9:20 (KJV)

“But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows”. Luke 12:7 KJV – God knows who you are. He knows your name and everything about you. He cares for you.

Have you ever experienced someone telling you a lie or been slandered? Have you ever been stolen from? If so, you know in your heart there is a standard of right and wrong. Standards of right and wrong are written in the heart of

every person by God. The most important appointment we have as human beings is when we die and then stand before Him.

James 2:19 says that even demons believe in God and shutter with fear. Devils and demons in fact know there is a God. Think about the story of Jesus sending the evil spirits into the pigs in Mark chapter 10 & 11. The evil spirits recognized Jesus immediately and new who He was. They beg Jesus to send them into the pigs as they did not want to go to their torment. Why will you not believe in God when devils and demons do?

Change your mind about God. Give Him a chance today. Your eternity depends on it.
