The Entire Truth

When you can begin to see yourself as God sees you, you will begin to understand your need for a Savior.

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)

Pride is perhaps the vilest sin against the Most High, it states within us that we do not need Him by whom all things subsist, that we can on our own create what we need without any of His creation. God’s wrath abides on those who do not believe in what His Word says about His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, that is how He sees them, not just upset, not just angry, but with wrath, and my friends, you do not want the fulfillment of Hebrews 10:31 in the life you now live much less the eternity to come.

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

That is what we are trying to help the lost to understand, it does not matter how good a life you live here, if you do not acknowledge the truths of the Scriptures about the Lord Jesus Christ, the wrath of God abides on you today. That can be difficult for both the rich and the poor to understand, for the rich have all they think they need, what they desire they simply go and purchase, and so that wrath is almost impossible for them to recognize. “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 19:23)

The poor, the destitute, the lame want promises of health, wealth and happiness, and we cannot say to them that is what the Lord will give them if you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, in fact, He may allow things to get even worse for you.

I do not believe that many who witness for the Lord to the lost realize these truths, to those who are rich and heed the call, He is not going to make them destitute, though He might, to the poor He is not going to shower blessings of materialistic worldly items upon them, though again, He might. It is difficult for the lost, and sadly for many who are saved to understand that the treasures of this world are not promised to us. “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” (1 Tim. 6:8), that our treasures are in heaven.

How many have you spoken to about the Savior, those lost souls that the wrath of God abides on and said, “You will suffer persecution if you accept the Lord. He may take all that you have from you, your friends and family will probably detest your very presence.” No, for the last few decades we have told them of the joy of the Lord, but not that the world will hate them, that Jesus loves them, not that the wrath of God is abiding on them and if they do not repent, they will burn forever.

We do not tell them how the Almighty sees them today, despised and rejected.

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3) Until we who have been crucified with Christ are glorified, we must remain in Christ, and even then, we will always be hid in the Beloved. When the Almighty looks at you, He is seeing the Lord Jesus Christ, not us, we have no beauty in His eyes, we have nothing of value in His sight, but we are in Christ and so we are loved. “We love him, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)

When you are speaking to the lost, they must know the entire story, they must be told of His love for us and the wrath that abides on them today, they must be told of the eternal joy that awaits them if they accept these truths, and the eternal damnation if they do not. They must know the consequences of their actions in either case.

We are not being profitable nor loving towards them if we do not speak the entire truth to them.
