Led by the Lamb or Bossed by the Beast

Last Sunday we talked about the “Evil Trinity” which is the Devil, the antichrist and the false prophet. We talked about how the Devil wants to be like God but instead of loving, caring and providing for the Devil and his trio only wants to destroy. They are very deceptive. They appear to be kind or loving at first but the truth is they are leading people down a path to destruction.

Revelation 14:9-10 “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or hand he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the Lamb.”

This Sunday as we continue our series in Revelation we will be in chapter 14. This Sunday’s message is “LED BY THE LAMB OR BOSSED BY THE BEAST”. The point is the decision is yours to make. No one can make it for you and refusing to pick is actually a decision in itself.

25 years ago as a much younger minister I had the opportunity to witness to a man and after sharing with Him God’s salvation he told me that he knew he should accept God and become a Christian but first he needed to do some things to clean up his life, such as stop drinking; then he said, he would say yes to God and become a Christian. Thankfully after more time, prayer and witnessing the man did become a Christian.

I shared that to say this, just because you know it is the right thing to do and or intend to do it later doesn’t make you a Christian. The decision to postpone it or put it off for another day is the same as saying no. Thankfully that man did give his heart and life to God before it was too late and today because he died a few years ago as a Christian he is in heaven.

What if you die or the rapture comes while you are in that “I am still trying to decide” time? Do you think God is going to say go ahead and take another second or two then I will tell you what is going to happen to you? I think the Bible is pretty clear when He comes back or if you die the state your soul is in at that moment (either lost or saved) will determine if you get to spend your eternity with God in heaven or apart from God in hell. There is no in between place for those who can’t make up their mind!

Which group are you in? Are you being “led by the LORD, the Lamb” or are you being “Bossed by the Beast, the devil”?

Update on our kids: Our son Brian and his oldest daughter and their pet dog left Abilene early Wednesday morning driving to and made it to their new home in California late Thursday evening. By the time you are reading this our daughter in law and their baby will be on a plane on their way to California. Teresa and I are proud of our kids and their new ministry and church but life is going to be different without them right here in the same town.

 

Thanks for your prayers and support. See you in worship this Sunday!

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
