God Is A Divider

God is not a God of unity, but rather of division. God is a God of extremes such as black and white, hot and cold, love and hate, condemned and uncondemned, heaven and hell, saved and unsaved, evil and good. There is no middle ground. God divided the night from the day, the darkness from the light.
Genesis 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.

Genesis 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Genesis 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

Ezekiel 44:23: And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

Jesus Came To Bring Division.
Luke 12:51: Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

52: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

John 7:43: So there was a division among the people because of him.

Matthew 25:31: When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on this left.

34: Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Acts 23:7: And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.

The world tells us, let's just all have unity, and not offend anyone, but the bible says a Christian who has been saved by grace and living by the bible will be hated by the world and will not fit in with the world. It is unbiblical to think that all the people on earth can be in harmony and oneness, such as promoters of the New World Order declare and the One World Church or World Council of Churches.  The world says, "We all worship the same God," but that is not true.  We don't all worship the same God.  The bible says in John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no many cometh unto the Father, but by me. 

1 John 2:23: Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father; he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

That makes it pretty plain that the only way to God is through Jesus.  Hindus, Buddists, and Muslims do not worship the same God, or any other false religion.  There is only one way and that is through Jesus.
John 16:1: These things have I spoken unto you that ye should not be offended.

2: They shall put you out of the synagogues; Yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

John 15:19: If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1 John 3:13: Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

Poetry About Jesus And Salvation

Appointed To Die

One common thing you always hear people say at funeral homes is "He's in a better place. At least he's not in pain anymore." Another common saying is whenever people are killed by a terrorist attack or shot down by a mad gunman, "We know they're with the angels in Heaven now", as though the way to heaven is to just be in the right place at the right time, and that's how you get in. Nothing could be further from the truth in either case. The bible says in Hebrews 9:27: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. Every person must die at the time appointed, whether it be from old age, illness, sudden death like heart attack or aneurysm, an accident, natural disaster, or terrorist attack. No one knows when it will be their time to die, so the important thing is to be ready because Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. This side of the grave is the time to get ready. Dying by an act of violence does not guarantee you an entrance into Heaven. People in the Armed Forces who die in wars do not go to Heaven just because they were a soldier fighting for their country; it is only if they are saved. For John 14:6 says: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. The only people who will be admitted into Heaven are the ones who have put their trust in Jesus' death on the cross and ressurection the third day as payment for their sins. If we put our trust in Him, then we will not be judged for our sins;; they will be forgiven through Christ's shed blood.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God

Luke 16:22-23 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried: 23: And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Last Chance Or Too Late

Would you rather hear "Last chance"
or "Too Late"
While you're alive there is still time
to be saved and not wait

If you hear the spirit
wooing and calling
now is the time to accept Jesus
and to quit stalling

Today may be the day that is
your "Last chance"
Jesus has already paid for your
sins in advance

Tomorrow may be the day that you
hear "Too late"
You never know when you'll be standing
at eternity's gate.

II Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee; behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation)
