There are those who truly do not understand the truth. They either have not been told or they have not yet reached a place of understanding it. They are not culpable for what they do not know or understand.
There are also those, however, who DO know the truth. They have understood it, yet they choose to feign ignorance in an attempt to salve their consciences as they walk away from it. While that might actually seem to “work” for a while, ultimately it will fail. Sooner or later they will have to face the truth. Only, instead of facing it for the first time and having an “aha” moment which allows them to embrace it, they will be facing it as someone who knew it and walked away. There will be guilt and condemnation, but it does not have to be that way.
While walking away from the truth is not a good thing and denying the truth is even worse, it is NOT irreversible. We have a heavenly Abba/Father who WANTS His creation to walk in truth. He WANTS us to come to Him. He WANTS us to be the bride of His Son Yeshua/Jesus. We can run to Him and ask forgiveness for walking away from the truth. We can run to Him and ask forgiveness for denying the truth to ourselves and others. We can accept the invitation to live as Yeshua’s bride. But we can only do that while we are yet alive. After death comes judgment. Then it will be too late.
There are many who enter into pacts or deals with the “devil” because they think it is just a game…a way to open a door to success in this life. But it isn’t just a game or door opener…it is real. You can scoff all you want, but hasatan takes all pacts and deals very seriously. So does our Creator. If you have made such a deal or pact, do not delay. Cry out to Yeshua to undo it right away. It does not matter what kind of deal you have made with the “devil” or what kind of pact you have entered into or what kind of oath you have sworn. All can be undone by the power of Yeshua/Jesus who is greater than anything in this world. You do not know how much time you have. Death could be a heart attack away, or an accident away or even a murder away.
We know this world will eventually end. The same G-d who told us in advance about so many other things that have come true in detail has also told us that Messiah will return and will bring judgment with Him when He does. A study of prophecy shows that this will be fairly soon. We might have until that moment to change the course of our lives…but we might not. The end can come for any one of us at any time. Death waits for no one.
The scriptures tell us that each one of us has a certain number of days, but we don’t know exactly how many we will have. We could die next month, next week, tomorrow, tonight, in the next few minutes. We don’t know. Is it worth the gamble to decide to get things right with your Creator later? I don’t think so. Please don’t wait. Settle things now and then live your life with gratitude to the One who makes it all possible for you…the giver of all good gifts…the Creator.
