Many would like to forget there is such a thing as God's wrath!

God's wrath makes them uneasy. They are terrified at the bare mention of it, so they block it out of their mind. Some try to believe there is no such thing. They argue that God is loving and merciful, therefore, He couldn't possibly be wrathful.

How do they know He is loving and merciful? Because, HIS WORD affirms it, that's how! That same Bible, which so many love to demean, tells of God's mercy and His wrath. As a matter of fact, it talks about His anger more than it does His love.

If God did not punish evildoers, He would be a party to evil doing. He would compromise with wickedness. He would condone sin. Of necessity, God is a God of wrath. Because God is holy, He hates sin, and because He hates sin, His anger burns against the sinner.

How indescribably awful the wrath of God must be! Like all His other attributes, God's wrath is incomparable, incomprehensible, infinite. And what will the wrath of the Almighty be like when it comes upon sinners? How does one resist or endure the full weight of it? They don't! It will overwhelm them. It will utterly consume them. It will crush them more easily than we can a worm beneath our feet. It will sink them into the lowest depths of hopeless despair. It will be intolerable and unbearable. And yet it will have to be endured day and night for ever and ever!

Reject Christ now, and there is nothing left but WRATH!

Here is a solemn warning against hoping in a second chance after death.

"A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy." (Proverbs 29:1)

"How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" We shall not! There will be no escape! There will be no second chance!

"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found: Call ye upon Him while He is near."

Today is the Day of Salvation; Tomorrow May Be Too Late!

Katie

Today is yesterday's tomorrow.
Meaning no matter what day you are living it's always the day of Salvation.

BTW: Katie, I feel sorry for you.
A mind filled with doom, gloom, negativity, fear, warped sense of love, distrust, etc.

Post after post doing the best you can to prove darkness.

Who cares!?
As long as I'm saved. That's what counts.
That's the true Gospel. Finding salvation and talking down to those you think didn't find salvation.
And those who never heard the Gospel?
Torpedos, please, please don't confuse me with the facts....

Amen...good OP, Katie.

15For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life.And who is equal to such a task? 17Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God. (2 Cor. 2)

The truth of matter is all most of us have is a belief, and trust that belief to be a ticket to heaven. The just Live by Faith and are led by the anointing within them,faith is not saying "I believe in Jesus and the bible".

We should know that all we have is a belief,when all that comes out of our mouth is, sin,death,judgement,punishment,hell,condemnation and wrath.

Katie, you just inadvertently called God "indescribably awful"

Right, Legoman.

Is Today the Only Day of Salvation? (2 Cor. 6:2)

God bless and peace.

Hebrews 13
6But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if [IF!] we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
7So, as the Holy Spirit says:
Today, if you hear his voice,
8do not harden your hearts
as you did in the rebellion, ...

12Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have come to share in Christ, if [IF!] indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said,
Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Crystal clear to some; clear as mud to others.
