To The Unsaved Right now, it is evident that a greater percentage of the multitudes of church-folks are only coming and going, but remain unsaved.
The reason for this is obvious. These days, being the very last days before the Rapture, are perilous and full of troubles of every sort (2Timothy 3:1; Matthew 24:3-8).
The devils knowing that the beginning of their damnation is almost here, are intensifying their man-oeuvres and onslaught, creating a lot of troubles in every area of life – the health sector, the economic sector, the social sector, the political sector, the academic sector, the religious sector and the spiritual sector (cp. Revelations 12:7-12).
Because of this situation, multitudes mill around seeking religious solutions to their afflictions, sicknesses, matrimonial woes, economic woes, insecurity, etc; having sought such solutions without success in the secular world. In the process, either consciously or unconsciously, they forget or neglect their souls’ eternal well-being and remain unsaved.
This is why they have no genuine clear-cut testimonies of salvation and the joy of salvation. Such people are usually conversant with the Christian’s language.
They pray, sing and testify to the reality and power of God, but have no clear-cut testimonies of how they encountered Christ, repented, confessed and had their sins forgiven and their hearts regenerated (cp. Titus 1:16; 2Timothy 3:5; Romans 10:1-4; Acts 10:1-5). There are others in the lot who come, partake in some of the activities, yet those things are done as a matter of formality.
But it is not yet late. These unsaved can yet be saved and should be saved now. They should remember that the rule of God is; “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness , and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
They should also remember that Lazarus’ soul, whose flesh was full of sores and torments went to Paradise at death while the rich man’s soul, whose flesh was filled with pleasure and goodies, descended into hell (Luke 16:19-23).
* They must seek to be born into the kingdom forthwith (John 3:3,5). The simple but definite thing that must be sincerely, willingly and wholeheartedly done is as follows:
* They must look inwards and realize they are yet sinners, though in the church (cp. Luke 15:17a; Acts 2:37 b).
* They must repent and confess their sins to God, asking for His forgiveness, and the granting of the earnest of God’s Spirit to dwell in their hearts (1Peter 51:1-; Proverbs 28:11-13; Acts 3:19)
* They must believe that Jesus died for their sins, and rose up the third day for their justification, and that because of this, their sins are blotted out from God’s record and the guilt cleared from their hearts (Romans 5:1-2)
* They must henceforth consider themselves saved and children of God on the basis of the foregoing and continue from there to build up better relationship with God as they endeavour to keep away from those things and persons that could lead them back to their old lives, and as they continue in fellowship, prayers and in His Word (Acts 2:42; John 8:31).
