Friends, today this is a message of sadness but also hope. I say sadness because of the many lost souls who are caught up in a world full of scepticism and unbelief. Do you have friends and family who believe the many wonders of this world are nothing but an accident and believe that nothing, created everything?
Do you have a father- in- law who tells you, as I do, that we came from apes?
Does your partner tell you not to talk about God to your own parents when they visit because they get offended and act like the Dracula films when they used to hold up a cross in front of Dracula and he would melt or disappear as fast as lightning.
I I have to tell you that there is never a day when my heart does not stop crying because of the many lost souls.
So many people fulfilling the words of Jesus when he said: 'This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil'. John 3:19.
So many people lost and queuing up to get in and through the gates of hell even this very hour.
The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. John 12:35,
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. Matthew 7:13.
If our hearts cry out when we think of these lost souls how much more pain does our heavenly Father feel and how it must grieve him so much after allowing his only Son to die an agonising death. How must Jesus feel when so many in this world say his story is just a fairy tale, after taking our punishment and ultimately dying by crucifixion which was the most horrifying, inhumane, cruel, savage, brutal, severe, harsh and heartless, atrocious, barbaric hellish, depraved, pitiless, unfeeling and uncompassionate way of killing a human being that was ever devised by man!
We know his heart was literally split in two.
Do you encounter the same issues that I do when I try to just say 3 words to unbelievers? God loves you I say and then they either look rather awkward, laugh in my face or just go silent. I often feel that they think that I am slightly weird and I am not surprised when I hear them make an excuse to leave, citing a variety of different reasons in order to just 'get away'.
Most believe Hell is a joke and make a joke from it.
I was with a friend once in my garden burning rubbish and as I looked at the flames flickering red and orange and I felt the heat burning my face I said to him 'Wow this is hot but imagine what it will be like in hell.
He replied flippantly by saying' As long as there are women and lager down there who cares!!!
Friends what do we do, say nothing?
I know that's how I feel sometimes, I just feel as if I want to give up on them.
The thing is I can't do that because I love people and want them to know Jesus loves them and died to save them yet quite often it seems like an impossible battle, a bit like 'banging your head against a brick wall' as the saying goes.
I have so many friends who are unbelievers. I know I cannot give up on them and let them walk into HELL. I am sure if they ended up in hell they would be crying and saying 'WHY DID NOT MY GOOD CHRISTIAN FRIEND OR MY OWN SON WARN ME OF HELL IF HE WAS A GOOD PERSON?
I continually give out films showing them the evidence of the Bible, magazines showing Bible Discoveries, but when I see these people weeks later they never mention a thing. Some don't even remember I gave them anything, that's what they say anyway.
My mother and father-in- law are not interested in reading anything about any Bible discoveries or even watching any of the Christian films we offer them. They buy and read books with as many pages as the Bible, usually crazy fiction novels yet they won't read the Bible because they believe it is a fairy tale.
Words from my mother in law always haunt me and I cannot forget that she said to me that there is no Bible evidence that will convince her that the Bible is true. She then told me that Hell did not bother her!!!
This then led me to going to the extreme by hanging on the wall in my office and in the toilet, where builders, friends and family may go, photos of the many Bible Discoveries so they can see the evidence of the Bible. My wife would keep telling me off for preaching and told me not to show them our Christian films so I came up with a new strategy to put the evidence before their eyes.
OK I said, I won't preach anymore but instead I will hang on the wall some photos of the many Bible Discoveries.
But now the evidence is right in front of them, they never say a single word about the evidence in the photos or even acknowledge that the photos are there.
Many unbelievers visit our home which is like an Aladdins cave full of FREE books videos and Bible Discoveries and information about Near-Death Experiences. Yet it seems like all the information I have is invisible to them. Not one person out of a dozen has acknowledged any one of many Bible Discoveries I have displayed in a place staring right in their faces.

Could this be why the Bible tells us it is dark with no light in HADES? God always reverses the situation. If we walk around acting though we cannot see the things of God and if we die in our sins then we will live in darkness.
If we don't use our eyes in this life to see the things of God then we will not need eye sight in Hades. In fact Jesus said But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 8:12. King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
I truly believe God will give every person what they believe. For example, if we believe we come from nothing we will live in a place where there is nothing. No light. No water. No more nice food or herbs and spices, milk or honey. No love, no more waking up to Gods birds singing and whistling. In fact there will be no rest or sleep 24 hours a day. God made it clear, 'There is no peace' says my God 'for the wicked'. Isaiah 57:21
He has made me dwell in darkness like those long dead. Lamentations 3:6.
Also, let us be sure of what we believe and what happens after the first death if we are not born again, then as soon as we die our lost souls will depart from our dead bodies and will descend down into Hades, the waiting place, a prison where we wait (2 Peter 2:9) until the day of judgement.
Then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of long ago. I will make you dwell in the earth below, as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the pit, and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living. Ezekiel 26:20
Believe me when I say there is only one thing down there and that is millions of souls weeping and crying. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' Matthew 25:30
But if we believe in Jesus who is the light, we will live in pure light and glory as Jesus says?
|John 12:46. John 8:12.|
So dear friends then put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." John 12:36
I once said to my mother in law that if a blind person was walking towards a cliff would you stop him and warn him that there is danger ahead because he is walking and heading towards a cliff that he will fall from and die, or would you just let him continue to walk over the cliff without warning him of the danger ahead and death. Well, this is why I am always telling you about Jesus, I say to them.
Yet the story goes in one ear and out the other.
So what do we do?
My wife tells me to not keep preaching, or you will make things worse and turn them away even more. But I don't agree.
I believe sincerely that when we have the chance we should use every opportunity to witness and strive to remind unbelievers that God made them and loves them. I believe Jesus made it clear when he said "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation'. Mark 16:15. If we plant a seed and as it grows do we just watch and leave it to grow. NO, we have to water and feed it, so it continues to grow so surely we should do the same with unbelievers by never giving up on them.
Here is the good news. Although I believe we are in the very last days, we still have time.
Let us use every tool the Lord has given us to prove to the unbeliever that Gods word is true?
Let us use Bible Discoveries that strengthens the believer, as Archaeology proves the Bible, helping to provide evidence which in turn shores up faith and helps a lost soul take that extra step of faith towards knowing Jesus, so they may be saved.
Let us stand before our great God on judgement day and say: I did whatever I could to prove the true loyalty of our God. To save the human race God sent and allowed his only Son to die an agonising death. Surely that is absolute, deep proof of Gods incredible love, Gods amazing and unconditional love extended towards every human being upon the earth.
Dear friends, I have made this video below in the sincere hope that many will see the evidence and love of our great God. God will reward every good deed we do and every lost soul we snatch from the fire and deliver to Jesus so that he saves them.
We still have time. Let us be reminded by the verse in Jude 1:22
Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear,hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
Dear friends, no matter what colour or race or faith. Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:7
Friends, let us be a blessing to others so that we may be a blessing to God, and we can be sure God will bless us.
Please bless a lost soul and forward this video on and be ready for God's blessings to be extended to us.
"I the LORD, search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:10
Is there any archaeological evidence for Crucifixion?? Whole film.
God "will give to each person according to what he has done. "Romans 2:6
