Don't Mistake God's Longsuffering for Approval!
John Gray

I does not matter whether or not you die before the Lord comes or that He comes before you die --- we shall all give an account (for the things we have done in the flesh) as we stand before the judgment of God

 

2Pe 3:9 ASV.  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to you-ward, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

 

While God does not wish that any should perish, He has set limits on His longsuffering.

 

1Pe 3:20 ASV.  that aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water:

 

Gen 6:5-6 ASV.  (5) And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  (6)  And it repented Jehovah that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

 

If we choose Satan as our master and proudly wear his mark in the products of our life's walk, then we must drink the cup of wrath God has prepared for us at judgment.

 

Rev 14:9-10 ASV.  (9) And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his forehead, or upon his hand, (10)  he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

 

Rev 16:19 ASV.  "... and Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath."

 

When is God coming?  No one knows, but everyone can be prepared for His coming. 

Mat 25:1-13 ASV.  (13) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  (2)  And five of them were foolish, and five were wise.  (3)  For the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them:  (4)  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  (5)  Now while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  (6)  But at midnight there is a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.  (7)  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.  (8)  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out.  (9)  But the wise answered, saying, Peradventure there will not be enough for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  (10)  And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast: and the door was shut.  (11)  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  (12)  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.  (13)  Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour.

    Are you prepared to meet your God this day?
