You Shall All Likewise Perish
by Brian P. 7/30/2009

"And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." - Luke 13:2-3
People tend to think that just because they are not a murderer, or a thief, or an adulterer, that they're not as bad as those who are. But that is definitely not true at all. The truth is, you are just as wicked as the person in jail.

When God looked down from heaven, he saw none righteous, no, not one.

"2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one."
- Psalms 14:2-3
The Lord Jesus said that it is the things that come out of the heart that defile a man. The heart is the only thing that someone can hide any dark secret that they wish. And the heart is the only thing God can see about a person that other people cannot.
"19 FOR OUT OF THE HEART proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man..." -
Matthew 15:19-20
Jesus said that if you look on a woman to lust after her, you have committed adultery with her in your heart (Matthew 5:28). "Well what if she's not married?" Then you are committing fornication with her in your heart. Sin is still sin. We tend to think in measures. If our sin isn't as big as this person's, then it must not be as bad.

It doesn't matter if you are an atheist, a Muslim, a non-Christian of any kind, Hindu, Buddhist, whatever. It doesn't matter. One day, you will perish, unless you repent. To repent means to turn from your sins and ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you.

Hitler was evil, was he not? Did you know that there are many "Hitlers" out there? Have you ever thought to yourself, "We should get rid of the Jews. Those people are the reason for the whole mess in the Middle East. Just get rid of them." If you have thought that, you have just taken one step toward being just like Hitler. Did you know that the whole Muslim community thinks we ought to get rid of the Jews? Name one Islamic nation that does not want to see the destruction of Israel. You can't.

Let me show you just how bad you are. Ever slept with someone you weren't married to? The Bible says that is fornication and adultery. Fornication if neither one of you were married. And adultery if at least one of you were married.

"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." - Galatians 5:19-21
Don't you realize that because of that one sin you committed, you are not going to heaven? "If that's the case, then the whole world is going to hell!" Yes, it certainly seems that way.
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."
- Matthew 7:13-14
If you don't repent, you will perish. I don't say this because God hates you, or because I hate you. That's not the case at all. I think you would find me a very hateful and insensitive individual if you were on fire, and I didn't try to help you put the fire out. You would probably thank me if I at least said to you, "Hey, Sir, your pants are on fire!" And then you'd really think I was a thoughtful person if I ran and threw some water on you to put out the fire.

I think most people sincerely want to go to heaven. If they truly realized the consequences of their sin, everybody would repent. But I think it's because people simply don't know... which is why people go to hell. But if you don't believe me, or other people like me who are trying to tell you these things, how can you be saved?

Muhammed can't save you. Muhammed is dead. And he lived about 600 years after Jesus! Buddha can't save you. He was just some man who claimed to have found enlightment. He's now just some statue. Moses can't save you. And Moses wrote of Jesus, more than a thousand years before Jesus went to the cross! But if you don't believe Moses' writing, how can you believe what Jesus says?

The fact of the matter is, Jesus Christ was really God. If you don't believe me, how can you explain the fact that he arose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and then 2 thousand years later, still has a written record of eyewitnesses who say these things really happened! They didn't just say these things happened, and then whenever someone threatened them, they shut up. No. They sealed their witness with their own blood! Even when they had the opportunity offered to them to save their own lives by renouncing the things they believed. And how can you explain the miracles that are still done today in Jesus' name? Things like casting out devils in the name of Jesus. Healing in the name of Jesus. How can you explain these things? You can't. Yes, you may try, but your error will lead you to believe a lie.

"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were EYEWITNESSES of his majesty." - 2 Peter 1:16

Friend, you are playing with fire by delaying. If don't repent today, whose to say that you'll live to see tomorrow?

"Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth." - Proverbs 27:1
Salvation from hell and from your sin is easy. Just honestly pray to the Lord Jesus. Say something like this to him, "Lord Jesus, please forgive me of all my sins. Please save me." And if you really mean that, and don't hold back your sins of pornography, or sins of fornication, adultery, or whatever, then God will truly save you! How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13

"(Jesus Christ)... Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." - Acts 4:12
