There is a border line, through which no one, no city, no people can’t step over – the border of indifference of the living God. In the Bible it is written about God: «I called you, and you did not answer». Why are you silent, a man, when God calls you?.... » *...
think that the largest absurd of our time is the absence of fear before the
anger of God. Moreover, it is an attribute of awful limitation, when living God
and His anger for a sin are not accepted by people seriously. When we learn to
be afraid of God, then we shall ask: «How to be saved from the anger of God?»
And then it will be open to us: Jesus is saving love of God! God wants all
people to be saved. But He can’t be unfair. He can not be indifferent to the
sin. And consequently He gave his Son - for salvation, for reconciliation...
Jesus is the last Word of God! If you do not accept Him, God has nothing to tell you. Do you understand? If people are anxious about the fact that God doesn’t talk to them, that He is silent, I answer them: God has nothing to tell you any more, because you do not want to accept His last Word. You need to accept Jesus, otherwise nothing will change» **.
Jesus said: «I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved» (John 10:9). «Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are... depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity» (Luke 13:24-27).
the Second World War, - tells W. Bush in the book «Jesus is our destiny», - «
in Stalingrad’s «boiler», surrounded by Russian armies, the last German
plane penetrated. This plane has been loaded with the wounded. But the lightly
wounded and frost-bitten soldiers, who also want to depart, come to the plane.
But the plane is already loaded up to the limit. Then they cling to the plane,
where it is possible do it: to outside door handles, behind the chassis... And
the plane rises. When it landed, there was no one from those who had clung: they
were carried away by the wind. Those were saved who were inside. Then I
involuntarily thought: The Gospel about the Son of God, Jesus, Who died for the
sake of us and revived, is like the same saving plane. It is possible to take
off from the disastrous boiler on it. There is enough space in it. But there are
many those who have not come in yet, and only hang outside: go to the church
only in Christmas; they are christened, but believe in everything. And if they
die, the pastor must confirm, that they were kind decent people. Do you
understand what I want to say? Many people only hang outside. Be sure: all of
them will be carried away by the wind! Only those who are inside will be saved!
Are you inside?
Soon there will come so hard times, that everyone’s faith will be tested for durability. Hopelessness, pessimism, apathy and feeling of vulnerability will take hold of the world. Many weak-willed will doubt God and will accept the mark of the beast to survive. Like Esau who exchanged his birthright for red stew, they will exchange their eternal life in the happy world of the God for 3,5 years of poor life under the government of the Antichrist. No matter how difficult it will be for «we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God» (Acts 14:22), keep in mind that «Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all» (Ps.34:19), because «...God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1Cor.10:13).
