Are You Saved?
“for He says, “At a favorable time I listened to you, And on a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is “a favorable time,” behold, now is “a day of salvation”—.” -2 Cor 6:2 (NASB)
You can go to church 2 or 3 times a week (perhaps more) and never hear what salvation (to be saved) means, who needs it, how to receive it but yet it’s critical, essential, and required for eternal life with God the Father and Jesus the Son.
We live in a time right now where the Lord is listening intently to those who sincerely want to be saved and seek His face through the instructions found in Scripture (e.g. Rom 10:9-10). He is ready for sinners who confess His name as Lord and repent of their sin but on the flip side, there will come a time where He will not strive with man anymore (Gen 6:3). The door is open now but will not always stay open for those that have rejected Jesus (e.g. Ten Virgins – Matt 25, King and Wedding Feast – Matt 22:1-14). There will come an end to this Age of Grace that we are living in now – Gen 6:3; Prov 1:24; John 9:4, so what will you do today? What will become of those that have rejected the King and/or continually mocked Him and rejected His free gift of eternal life? One word … HELL!
“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” -John 8:24 (NKJV)
Friends, today is the day of salvation, not tomorrow for no one knows if they will even be alive in the morrow. Remember, sinners who mock and are indifferent to the Gospel fall under the indictments of Scripture and their end is in the Wrath of God – Rom 1:18. We cannot continue playing or pretending to be a Christian … you either know Him or you don’t! A litmus test to determine a real Christian … how often do you pray, seek His face, are grievous about your sin (Godly sorrow), repent of your sin, walk with God, read His word (daily)?
Please do not play with the things of God – saying you are a Christian but living a life of unconfessed sin. Today is the day of salvation for everyone. And that salvation gift comes ONLY through the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ – He must be your Savior and Lord.
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12 (ESV)
So I ask you … today if you would pass from this life, would you immediately be ushered into the arms of a loving God who you have claimed on earth as your Lord and Savior and be invited into His rest, or will you, living a life of rebellion, obstinately, and unrepentantly rejecting God’s message of salvation, be directed to the waiting room of hell like the rich man in Luke 16 was?
What say you to about these things today? Have you been saved by the Blood of the Lamb of God who took yours and mine penalty of sin and bore it in an agonizing death on the Cross? Folks, it’s time to seriously think of this. We live in a world of almost constant turmoil, upheaval, deception, lies, and twisted truths. America and the rest of the world are clearly seeing the signs of the last to the last days echoed in Bible Prophecy. Are you watching? Are you listening? What will you do if, in a twinkling of an eye, real Christians are removed by the rapture as defined in Scripture? (i.e. 1 Th 4:16-18; 1 Cor 15:51-52). The time to weigh these things and decide strongly on a course correction in your life is now.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” -Rom 10:13 (KJV)

“My soul, wait in silence for God alone, For my hope is from Him. 6- He alone is my rock and my salvation, My refuge; I will not be shaken. 7- My salvation and my glory rest on God; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. 8- Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” -Psa 62:3-8 (NASB)
GLORY TO GOD!
