Don’t even THINK about backsliding!!!

‘And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not [himself], neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many [stripes]. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few [stripes].

For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.’ (Luke 12:47-48)

‘For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.’ (2 Peter 2:20-21)

‘For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.’ (Hebrews 10:26-31)

 

If you have backslidden, God has led you to this post for a reason.  Repent while you are still able to, before your heart becomes hard as a stone, before your mind becomes totally deluded, and before your conscience becomes completely seared.  Reach out to God, humble yourself and repent, cry out for His mercy.  The hour is late and darkness is descending upon this world.

Please note:  NO ONE should make the commitment to become a Christian, until they are ready to DIE to themselves.  Being a Christian is not just an escape from hell, it is a diligent walk on a difficult and narrow path.  Those who are only looking for ‘fire insurance’ will not endure the climb.  If you are trying to win souls to Christ, be SURE they count the cost first, and are totally committed.  Anything less will lead to their destruction.
