His love is the reason He made a way to offer His grace over judgment. Anger has no part in God’s judgment of mankind. For we rightfully deserve His judgment against us. Don’t you know that it is God’s goodness that leads us to repentance?
If His goodness through grace isn’t good enough, I’m afraid we will just have to accept that our penalty is on our own heads. So, please, do accept the goodness of His grace through Christ Jesus His Son, our Savior. His is the kinder, gentler, and only way of entering eternity while escaping the gaping maw of perdition. -G.W.
“I am not afraid of being charged, as I often am,
of trying to frighten you, for I am definitely trying to do so.
If the wondrous love of God in Christ Jesus and the hope of glory is not sufficient to attract you-
-then such is the value I attach to the worth of your soul, that I will do my utmost to alarm you with a sight of the terrors of Hell!”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
( I agree with the good Doctor)
Wisdom shouts to the multitude
She cries loudly in public assemblies
She throws her veil over throngs,
To those in the teeming streets,
“How long, you of stubborn minds,
Will you insist you don’t understand?
How long will you revilers revel in your mockery?
How long will you of arrogance hate knowledge?
Soon I AM closing the door of invitation.
You have spurned me and mocked me.
You have turned a deaf ear to my entreaty.
Since you have spurned me as refuse in the street,
When calamity overtakes you as a tsunami,
And disaster sweeps in to overpower you,
When distress and trouble flood over you,
I will spurn you and say I never knew you.”
G.W. IMOW from Proverbs 1: 20-29
The one and only ‘Escape Clause’ in all of scripture is Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
