Are You Ready To Meet God?

Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The LORD shall swallow them up in His wrath, And the fire shall devour them. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against You; They devised a plot which they are not able to perform. Therefore You will make them turn their back; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces. (‭Psalms‬ ‭21‬:‭8-12‬ NKJV)

Yahweh, the proven Creator of this universe, will have a face-to-face meeting with us all. We were born by His permission, into His world, and remain breathing now by His will. Like wind to a burning wick, He can blow the very life out of our hearts and we will die, only to stand before the Consuming Fire of whom we must give an account.

Are you ready for this personal encounter? Are you prepared to be judged by Him?

I tell you now, not one person on this earth can ready themselves any other way than that way which God has provided: His Son.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭6‬)

Man is without excuse. There is an abundance of historical evidence that Christ indeed proved Himself to be the Son of God by His perfectly moral life, His miracles and resurrection from the dead, and the billions of lives He’s transformed since then. If anyone doubts this fact, He can merely ask the Lord to reveal the truth, and He will to those who genuinely desire Him. For though many accept that there is indeed a Creator, they reject Him in their minds and hearts, and do not desire Him to be their Father and Master. In their grave foolishness, they deem their ways better than His, and so they cling to their sin and deny God until they inevitably meet Him and face the eternal condemnation for which they brought upon themselves by denying God’s plan for forgiveness and redemption.

I don’t want you to be one of those who all their life assumed they’ll get into heaven on good merit, not realizing they’ve broken the commandments of God over and over and over and have never been truly forgiven of them because they’ve never surrendered to the One who never once broke a commandment; the only perfect One who can forgive sin since He overcame it when He walked this earth in human flesh. Jesus Christ alone is worthy of heaven. He alone has never broken God’s law, therefore when He died, He did not die for merely the worst of sinners, but the bible says He died for the entire world.

Do not trust in yourself to get you to heaven. Jesus has made the path clear: Himself. Come to Him for forgiveness and salvation. Trust in Him as your Savior and Lord, give your heart to Him, change your mind about what you believe is right and renew it by seeing what God commands in the Bible.

May you be set free from every sin and hurt and come to know the One who loved you so much He allowed Himself to be beaten, ridiculed, and pinned to a cross for your forgiveness to be made possible.

Love and grace to you,

About BetterThanPrinceCharming

Ever since Kindergarten I've dated. From Bobby Well onward, I had over four dozen boyfriends. Fifth grade was my high year: sixteen sweethearts. I went through a few boys every year after that during middle school, and high school was where my dry season hit. Between freshman and senior year I had a consumation of nine boyfriends. I was on a hunt. I'd seen every Disney princess movie, and I was bound and determined to find my prince. Prince Charming wasn't in a far away land, he was in Miami, and I wasn't going to stop until I found him. So I thought. Villains are usually the one's who get in the way of your pursuit for happiness, not Heros, right? Well, in my case, it was both. View all posts by BetterThanPrinceCharming

    I trust that you have good intentions in writing this post. But how can you be certain of what you believe? Simply because an ancient book says so? What about all the gospels that the early church excluded from the Bible (Judas, Mary Magdalene, etc) ? Should I follow Jesus so that I can avoid eternal damnation? This would be a religion based on fear not love. Is God’s love unlimited? If so, why do we have The concept of hell?

      Thank you for commenting, Noel.

      For one, I am sure from daily personal experience. From the moment I cried out to the God of the Bible on February 22nd, 2009 to today, I have and do experience Christ in amazing ways. This experience must be experienced in order to grasp fully. I guarentee if you realize your need for Christ and how worthy He is to be worshipped, your life will likewise be transformed by the reality of His presence.

      There is myriads of evidence that tge Scriptures we hold in our hands today are completely trustworthy. Prophetically, they are astoundingly accurate, historically, geographically, consistent in their witness—Unlike some of the ones that were excluded.

      Wisdom would say in part, it is wise to follow Christ so as to avoid eternal damnation, however, devoted followers recognize Christ’s incredible love as displayed in His three year ministry of reaching out to the despised and rejected, healing thwm, feeding them, teaching them, and then allowing Himself to be criminalized, brutalized, and ultimately crucified so we may be reconciled to God. The Bible says, “For the joy set before Him, Christ endured the cross.” I think it is safe to say most everyone simply wants love and purpose in life. This is exactly what God alone offers, since He is love, and He is the one who created us. I gave my heart to Jesus because of what He did for me, because of His great love for me. If the Perfect Son of God would lay down His life for me, an undeserving sinner, (the bible says while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, and that we love because He first loved us), how can I walk away from Him? No one has ever loved me so radically, and no one ever will. He gave His life for me, so I choose to live my life for Him.

      And lastly, God is love, but He is also a just judge. Just as we have a judicial system that adminsters justice, God likewise has His judicial system. Just as caring fathers would discipline their children in hopes that they would change for the better, God likewise disciplines in hopes that we would change so we can one: be forgiven and two, stop harming others with our sinful decisions. This is ultimate love. God sees the self-harm and the harm to others that sin inflicts and so He seeks to do away with it. He cannot have unrepentant, unregenerated sinners dwelling in heaven amongst those who have repented and been transformed. Then what happened with Satan and the angels that sinned would happen again. He cannot allow evil to dwell among goodness. He seeks to protect His children—those who have accepted Christ and become adopted children of God—not to put them in danger by allowing strangers (those who do not know and have rejected God) to live in the same home. I assume if you have children, you will not allow self-serving strangers to live in your home because you seek your family’s protection. Can we expect any less of a good and caring God?
