New York City is filled with endless surprises and off-the-beaten-track kind of anything and everything. Like the huge truck I saw early one morning pulled up in front of a building for a delivery. My eyes were drawn to the massive words on the side of the truck. DESTRUCTION YOU CAN TRUST. No clue what the ad represented. But I can tell you this. I was quickly reminded of a TOTAL DESTRUCTION we truly can trust. In other words, a TOTAL DESTRUCTION we can absolutely count on. Know what I’m referring to?
The Lord Jesus Christ makes emphatically clear that those who do not turn from a lifestyle of sin and put their trust in Him as Lord who died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, genuinely turning our hearts and lives over to Him and His ways, choosing a lifestyle of godliness instead of godlessness, will face TOTAL DESTRUCTION – FOREVER APART FROM HIM. Where? In hell and the lake of fire in ETERNAL TORMENT that we can’t even fathom!
But just as much as we can trust fully in total destruction for eternity if we turn our backs to Jesus and reject Him as Lord and Savior, we can fully trust when we give Him our lives and choose His ways and not the world’s ways that we will be PROMISED A FOREVER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD THAT WE COULD NOT OTHERWISE HAVE. Forever with Jesus! Now on this earth, yes! And forever in heaven, yes!
Which will it be, friend? Total destruction forevermore – or being in the Lord’s fellowship forever and ever? Choose Jesus! Choose life! Forevermore, yes!
Lord, for those reading this who haven’t committed their lives utterly to you as Lord and Savior, may this be the very hour they do! For those who have already entrusted their lives to you, may they experience a drawing to yourself like never before and make a deeper commitment than they ever have. May they henceforth be TOTALLY DEVOTED to you dear Lord. Help us all, Lord, to be sold out to you this day and forever and ever, AMEN!
“We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” 2 Thessalonians 1:3-10
