Because Jesus tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves...Awake out of your sleep and tell people the second coming is eminent! Tell them Jesus loves them...He says he is coming again. Shouldn't we be Loving them by telling them the truth of how much they are loved by God? But instead we want to not "Offend" anyone. They will be offended that you did not Love them enough to share Christ's love with them when they are forever separated from pure Love.
Please...Read Romans 13.
AWAKE...Any moment, God could chose to fulfill His promise to return for His children. My heart is broken for those I love who choose to ignore history, present time prophecy being confirmed and the truth of Christ as Messiah.
If I love you, it would be wrong if I don't tell you how precious you are to GOD. I mean the God of the BIBLE.
Too many people I meet that have a "Problem" with the Bible...have never studied it to form an actual sound opinion.
I would never give a book review without reading it, a restaurant review without eating there first...so why do so many people feel comfortable saying the Bible is in error if they have never studied it for themselves with an open mind? Well, from my own experience, they don't want to stop doing the stuff that they know would offend the God of the Bible because sin is fun...for a time.
Then empty, sad, lonely, confused hearts still remain empty even though they keep doing "their own thing" because they "have a right" to.
Well, if you must reject the Bible, please at least first read some then let's talk.
If you have honestly quietly, personally and fairly read and studied the Bible and don't just reject it because it is politically correct to do so or because it lets you off the hook for bad attitudes, and selfish behavior...then, by all means, you do have the right to reject Christ and His word.
I pray for your very soul you will know HE loves you and believe Him before our time here on Earth is over.
Here's a peek...
Love, for the Day is Near
8Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. 9The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet,"[a] and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."[b] 10Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
11And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.[c]
So...YOU DON'T LIKE THIS N I V wording...Well another solid translation...
8-10Don't run up debts, except for the huge debt of love you owe each other. When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code—don't sleep with another person's spouse, don't take someone's life, don't take what isn't yours, don't always be wanting what you don't have, and any other "don't" you can think of—finally adds up to this: Love other people as well as you do yourself. You can't go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love.
11-14But make sure that you don't get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed. We can't afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight. Get out of bed and get dressed! Don't loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!
This scripture make us prophets...If someone asks me I can say for certain...I don't know when Jesus is coming back but it is nearer today than it was yesterday. It is going to happen. He has always filled His promises in history. So...I believe He will do what He says He will do.
WAKE UP...get out of your spiritual coma Church!!! Do what we are told to do...LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR...by telling them about the RETURN OF THE KING!!!
If you are angry because I dare to take a solid stand on this truth...tough! Your EGO and PRIDE are what makes you continue to reject Christ's love for you and the truth of His sacrifice on the cross for YOU! We like our own way...so we justify our life choices by calling people who LOVE GOD intolerant. I am not going to tolerate YOU, who I care about, being seperated from LOVE and LIGHT for eternity.
EGO= Edging GOD OUT!
I love you enough to risk offending you...if you are offended by the fact that GOD LOVES YOU and wants to spend time with you...You might really look at where the offense started. You wanted it your own way...so you rejected the truth. I know I wasted a decade of my life doing it "MY OWN WAY". It did not change the truth that God was real and loved me. Your "rights" and wanting your own path doesn't change the truth...
THAT GOD LOVED YOU ENOUGH TO DIE FOR YOU!
The power of the Cross helps me live for Him as though He were coming before this day is over. I LOVE YOU ENOUGH TO SAY...wake up from your slumber. The time is near...that makes me look forward with peace. How about you...if...now I just said if...the God of the Bible is Real and He does what He says He will do...are you in a position to look forward to His return with peace?
