“For GOD so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”(John 3-16): this is the most wonderful gift that the LORD GOD, Creator of heaven and earth has given to mankind; it is a special and marvelous surprise that has happened to us. Who is that Son? Why such an unexpected offering? JESUS-CHRIST is that lovely Son who, considering his deep love for His Father, accepted to be offered as a sacrificial lamb for our salvation. As a matter of fact, man was condemned to death because of sin, because he disobeyed GOD’s order. The book of Romans 3:23 states that all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD; Despite that, our Saviour accepted to redeem us and said: “I come to do your will o GOD”(Hebrews 10-9).

    The will of GOD is that the wicked turns from his ways and lives; GOD wants to purify us from sin. The Holy Scriptures declares that “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of JESUS-CHRIST once for all.”(Hebrews 10-10).GOD wants us to be holy because no evil shall enter in His kingdom; He expects us to get rid of all evil for he says:”I the Lord your GOD am holy”(Leviticus 19-2).
    Dear Reader, you cannot be saved from the wrath to come if you do not prove your love for GOD as you are living. That love consists in fulfilling GOD’s will; that is, in denying all sorts of evil; in rebuking sin no matter how attractive it may be. Since GOD is not the GOD of the dead, but of the living (matthew22-32), we should obey Him now that we are still breathing. A dead somebody does no more have a will , cannot say yes or no ; neither pray nor praise God; can no more do anything good nor bad; it is when you are alive that you can accept the Lord, that you can decide of your salvation day. This becomes impossible as soon as you die because the Book of Life states that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”(Hebrews 9-27).Do you realize that after your death there will be  no way for you to  practice good? That there will be no way for you to repent and be converted ? It is high time you practiced love, goodness, justice, faith, peace, self-control, joy….as you are still living.

    This is the time to say yes to the LORD’s call. Do not deceive yourself hoping that after death you can have another opportunity! If you want to live a holy life and be saved, you are called to do it right away because as soon as you die, you can no longer have the opportunity to abandon lies telling, stealing, fornication, adultery … no more possibility to be cleansed from all evil thoughts, unjust decisions, …no way to purify your mouth from all filthy words………………
    The time for salvation is NOW. CHRIST has suffered for you in his flesh , so that you should no longer live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men but to  will of GOD.(1 Peter 4:2).Show your love for GOD here  on earth as you are still breathing. Apostle Peter says that” if you call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to every man’s work, pass the time of your exile here in fear.”(  1 Peter 1:17).
    The time of your exile is indeed the appropriate time for you to deny  your  old master and accept the LORD JESUS before the end of your journey .For “Blessed are the dead who die in the LORD, from now on ….they may rest from their labors…”.(revelation 14:13)

    “For if GOD spared not  the angels that sinned ,but  cast them down to hell, and spared not the ancient world but saved  Noah(… ),a preacher of righteousness, bringing  in the flood upon the world of the ungodly(…) and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes and delivered just Lot ,vexed with the filthy behavior of the wicked(…) The LORD  knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations ,and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.”(2 Peter 2:4 to 9)
    Dear reader, you shall not be spared as well, if you do not abandon your evil deeds and live a holy life with the LORD in your journey here on earth. Do not give credit to the fake prayers of the so-called men of God who pretend to grant salvation to the dead. Seek the LORD and accept Him today and NOW.
