You already know the Truth. You do. And so does everyone else.
Some have become deceived about it, but some are downright rebellious. I wonder which one you are. Do you know? It’s life and death, for sure.
Most everyone has witnessed the jets that flew into the World Trade Towers on September 11th. Most people don’t know this but the men responsible for that despicable act thought they were doing God a favor. No joke.
Do you remember where you were that day in September? What you felt when you saw that on the TV screen? Do you remember the raw emotion at that moment?
So, those men thought they were doing a holy act for God Almighty, but we know better don’t wait. Or do we? What makes their act with those jets wrong?
But why is it right? What makes their actions wrong?
The act of murder is against the law. Where does the law come from? How do we know for certain that this is a good law?
It’s because there is a Lawgiver. And He is very specific about His laws. As a matter of fact, the Holy Scriptures proclaim that this God in His love has written His law on the heart of every person who has been born and that He created. Even a young child instinctively knows that murder is not right in any society or culture. And so do we as grown adults.
But then why do grown adults like the men with those jets forget the law that’s on their heart and proceed to murder thousands of people? It’s because they have killed their conscience and convinced themselves that their actions were appropriate. They are deceived. When people are deceived, they don’t know that there deceived. And that’s a huge, huge problem.
Moving forward then, if murder is wrong in the eyes of the Lawgiver, then what else does He say is wrong in His eyes?
Again, in the holy Scriptures, this God states that if we’re angry with a person unjustifiably that this is murder in His eyes. What, you say? Everybody gets angry with people now and then, and that’s unreasonable of any deity to expect that perfection. Well, yes and no.
Yes, in that we all get angry unjustifiably at times. No, that it’s unreasonable of God that He should make a law against this inconsiderate murder.
You see, dear friend, the problem with human beings is that they don’t see their offense other than horizontally or with the other person. In God’s eyes, the Lawgiver, their offense is first and foremost with Him vertically!
As a matter of fact, it plainly states that the wrath of God, His unmitigated and furious anger, abides on all those who refuse His loving and gracious forgiveness in repentance and surrender toward Him. Moreover, the Bible states that people who refuse to acknowledge his right to their lives are storing up wrath for the day of wrath when God is finally revealed in flaming fire with his angels to deal out retribution to those who do not know and those who do not obey the gospel.
But why is this such a huge thing to the Almighty?
Do you have a favorite child? Or a favorite niece or nephew? Or a favorite child that is close to you in your neighborhood? Think about the love and care that you have for that young person. Muse on the fact that you would want to protect and provide in every way for them.
Now imagine terrible and despicable men come and take that child from you. In the rebellion and scoffing for their hatred toward you, they lash out at the child by torturing and murdering this little one. How do you feel? What would you feel like doing to those men? And why do you feel that justice is served from this retribution?
Now it’s your turn. You know by the things that have been created all around you that there is a God and He is loving in what He is made. You are without excuse in that you know this fact by all the creation that’s around you.
But you are in rebellion against all this because you want your way. You want to do what you want to do and have nothing of the Spirit of God within you at this time. You think nothing of pleasing him and everything of pleasing yourself. You do not seek after God, nor have any interest in the things that interest Him. Consequently, His wrath abides on you for your sin.
But in His gracious mercy and lovingkindness, he provides a payment, a justification, for the sins of the world. And that includes you, dear friend, all the self-centered and narcissistic things you’ve done since you were a little child up until now. Thousands and thousands of transgressions.
Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of the world, left the hallowed and holy perfect halls of heaven become an abode on the earth and become the perfect sacrifice for God the Father, the Lamb of God. The religious leaders of the day turned him over to the civil authorities for torture and murder. And death on a cruel Roman cross. It’s all true, beloved.
It says in the Holy Scriptures that He has already forgiven everybody based on that act some 2000 years ago. But repentance, surrender and continued obedience are the requirements for him to accept you into his kingdom and to live in his heart by his Holy Spirit.
One doesn’t repent and surrender because of what God will do for you, but because of what God wants to get out of you through a holy life. You don’t come to Jesus because He’ll do you good. You Come to Him and surrender because it’s the only way God the Father can get any glory out of any human being.
Jesus Christ is the Friend of sinners, and God the father did love the world so much that He sent His only begotten son. And through that we can now live a life to him instead of to our former lost in selfish self’s. This is all true.
But this good news, the gospel, makes no sense in less you know you’ve been rescued from the bad news: the wrath of God abides on you because of your heinous and despicable acts toward God your whole life.
Remember the unrighteous anger being the same as murder? How many hundreds of times have you been on righteously angry, and thus murder the person who received this anger?
Do you see? Do you see your heinous crime against a holy and just God? That is the only way that you can escape and love Him as He desires, and as He deserves.
You must, indeed, count the cost before you join His kingdom through His grace. You cannot enter by any good deeds or works. That makes you God of how good you need to be, like trying to be balancing good versus evil deeds on a scale. The Scriptures plainly state that there is no one that is good and no one that seeks after God.
God draws all of mankind one soul at a time to Himself for them to make this all important surrender to Him. Few there be that find it because of the deep seated rebellion in the hearts of unsaved men and women across the world.
Jesus Christ states that he did not come to bring a peace on the world, but a sword! He abruptly stated that a man’s enemies will be those of his own household. That if we weren’t willing to deny ourselves completely, to become as a dead person and then resurrected, to suffer torture and murder during this process, we shouldn’t even begin. He states that many will come to Him in the day of judgment and claim they did many religious things and even in His name!
And He will say to them: I never knew you, depart from Me all you who practice lawlessness. These are probably the most stunning words in the entire Word of God.
So then, God the Father in his unfathomable love initiates the rescue against Himself by sending His son. What amazing grace.
You know the truth because He has written it on your heart that He exists, that He’s created everything you see, and that that you are a sinner condemned to hell and the lake of fire because of your rebellion your entire life.
You know the truth now that He is made provision for this terrible sin against him by sending His own son to live a perfect life and to be the perfect sacrifice to assuage His terrible wrath against you and mankind.
What will you do now? For you already know the Truth, and the whole Truth.

John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Romans 2:4-8 Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation.
Romans 5:6-10 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
Ephesians 5:5-6 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Hebrews 3:7-11 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS AS WHEN THEY PROVOKED ME, AS IN THE DAY OF TRIAL IN THE WILDERNESS, WHERE YOUR FATHERS TRIED Me BY TESTING Me, AND SAW MY WORKS FOR FORTY YEARS.
“THEREFORE I WAS ANGRY WITH THIS GENERATION, AND SAID, ‘THEY ALWAYS GO ASTRAY IN THEIR HEART, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW MY WAYS’; AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, ‘THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST.'”
1 Thessalonians 1:10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God has not destined us (the true and obedient believers) for wrath, but for obtaining salvation (being salvaged) through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Ephesians 2:1-10 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Revelation 6:15-17 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Revelation 19:11-16 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
