The Twilight of Your Life
For most of us Baby Boomers, the twilight of our lives is already here. The rewards or punishment from a Holy God awaits us in one of two judgments; either the Bema Seat for those who’s name is written in he book of life, or the Great White Throne Judgment for those who rejected Jesus and God’s plan of salvation. God so loves us, but in His perfect Holiness and purity, His righteous judgment will prevail as He is no respecter of persons. In other words, fallen man has no hope without faith in the Blood of Jesus, not just to cover our sins, but to remove them completely from the books because God has allowed Himself to forget all of our sins when we put our trust and hope in His Son Jesus who became a substitute for our punishment. “And their sins and lawless deeds I will remember no more.” (Hebrews 10:17)
I am amazed how many try to justify sin and compromise basic biblical doctrines in these times for the sake of political correctness and tolerance. Standing before our Holy God at our life’s end, the political correctness and tolerance and compromise WILL COST YOU YOUR SOUL. Who really believes you can enter in to a Holy place like heaven where The Holy God resides with sin in your life? Who thinks they can stand and argue with God that homosexuality, transgenderism , bisexuality and sexual perversion is ok. What those people will hear is Jesus;” Then He will say to those on His left, Depart from me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Matthew 25:41) Believers cannot compromise on these issues in any way, not even with your own family. If you love them you will warn them to repent and turn away from their wicked ways. If they don’t, then it’s on them and they cannot accuse you on Judgment day that you didn’t warn them.
What do you think Jesus meant when He said “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he MUST DENY HIMSELF, AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it?” (Matthew 16:24-25) You may be chastised, you be ostracized, you will be persecuted from many sources; family, coworkers, governments and especially fake Christians for standing up for righteousness. Do you have the guts and courage to stand against evil sweeping our land and the world? Taking up your cross daily and following Jesus means you might wind up on a cross yourself like our brothers and sisters in the Middle East, North Korea and China and now creeping into other parts of the world, for belief in Jesus, are you willing to die for your belief in Jesus if it came to that? You say; but some of my family members are gay. So love them but don’t compromise one bit.
Here is what Jesus said and some of you wont like it but Jesus said ” Do not think I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD. For whoever LOVES father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. AND HE WHO DOES NOT TAKE HIS CROSS AND FOLLOW AFTER ME IS NOT WORTHY OF ME. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who lost his life for my sake will find it. He who receives you, receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.” (Matthew 10:35-40)
In this twilight of our lives we must remain faithful TO THE END, regardless of what may happen or come our way. Don’t be counted among those who have fallen away in these last days. For your seeing the great falling away happen here, right now, before your very eyes. Rampant lawlessness and sin and perversions of every sort in every government in every people around the globe. Yet in the mist of this great falling away there is hope for the faithful. For those who sincerely repent and call to Jesus from the depths of their hearts there is forgiveness and healing and restoration and peace. Set you eyes on the hope, the only true God and Jesus Christ, His Son. For the older ones, the baby boomers, there is a specific verse in the bible to memorize and confess everyday. It is Psalms 92:14 “They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing.”
Since we are flesh we fail, we sin even after the born again experience, but God is faithful and forgives us because our High Priest is Jesus and He lives and forever makes intercession for us. When that twilight falls and it will for all of us; the only thing that remains is the fruit of our labor for the Kingdom of God and what we did with a love motive. Sometimes it must be tough love…..
