GRACE AND PEACE TO YOU FROM GOD OUR FATHER AND FROM OUR LORD AND OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. DEAR FAMILY IN CHRIST JESUS. SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER I'VE GOT TO SHARE MY NEW POSITION NOW THAT I'M NOT A FULL-TIME PASTOR. I'M A FULL-TIME CONCRETE CONCRETE, NOT CEMENT MIXER. CONCRETE MIXER DRIVER. AH! AS I SAID, A LOT OF MY TIME I'M ON THE ROAD. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I SEE ON THE ROAD ARE A LOT OF BLACK SKID MARKS. DO YOU SEE THEM? BROKEN GLASS, BUMPER PARTS LAYING KIND OF MANGLED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I SEE A LOT OF THEM AND I WONDER: WHAT HAPPENED? HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED TO PEOPLE? BUT THEN I WATCH AS I'M DRIVING CAREFULLY THIS VERY LARGE TRUCK NOW. BUT I SEE PEOPLE DOING THE MOST FOOLISH THINGS! IT'S LIKE THEY'RE WAY OVER THERE ON MY LEFT-HAND SIDE AND THEY GO: OH, THAT'S MY EXIT AND THEY GO STRAIGHT ACROSS IN FRONT OF ME AND YOU'RE THINKING: WHAT IS THIS DRIVER THINKING? DIDN'T THEY SEE WHAT THEY WERE DOING? COME ON, WAKE UP! THERE'S A 33-TON RED AND WHITE TRUCK THAT YOU ARE JUST CUTTING IN FRONT OF. DO YOU THINK THAT IT'S GONNA STOP IF YOU DO? YOU CAN GET A LITTLE EXCITED AT TIMES WHEN YOU'RE OUT THERE DRIVING. ON GOOD DAYS, ON GOOD DAYS THOUGH YOU SEE PEOPLE THAT ARE DRIVING SAFELY. MOST PEOPLE DO BECAUSE THEY PLAN THE WAY THAT THEY'RE GOING. THEY KNOW WHEN THEIR EXITS COMING UP. THEY'VE MOVED OVER. BUT ON SOME OF THESE BAD DAYS, YOU SEE MORE BITS OF TAIL LIGHTS AND BUMPERS. MAYBE YOU'RE EVEN THE ONE THAT SEES THEM GO SKIDDING ACROSS THE LANES AND THE SHOULDERS. WELL HOPEFULLY NONE OF US ARE SO SHORT-SIGHTED AS TO END UP IN THAT BAD WAY ON THE FREEWAY. IT WOULD BE FOOLISH IF WE CRASHED BECAUSE WE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE WE WERE GOING. WELL TODAY AS WE LISTEN TO THE LORD AND HIS WORD FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT, HE TELLS US ABOUT THE END THAT EVERYONE OF US IS APPROACHING. AND HE WANTS US TO AVOID ENDING UP IN THE VERY WORST OF WAYS. INSTEAD HE TELLS US THAT HE WANTS US TO SEE HIM COMING WITH THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WHERE IT WILL SHINE ON US FOREVER. LISTEN AGAIN TO HIS WORDS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THE LORD IS SAYING TO YOU WHEN HE SAYS: SURELY THIS DAY IS COMING. WE READ FROM MALACHI, CHAPTER 4: "SURELY THE DAY IS COMING; IT WILL BURN LIKE A FURNACE. ALL THE ARROGANT AND EVERY EVILDOER WILL BE STUBBLE, AND THE DAY THAT IS COMING WILL SET THEM ON FIRE," SAYS THE LORD ALMIGHTY. "NOT A ROOT OR A BRANCH WILL BE LEFT TO THEM. BUT FOR YOU WHO REVERE MY NAME, THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL RISE WITH HEALING IN ITS WINGS. AND YOU WILL GO OUT AND LEAP LIKE CALVES RELEASED FROM THE STALL. SO FAR HIS WORD. [TEXT FROM THE NIV, USED BY PERMISSION OF ZONDERVAN BIBLE PUBLISHERS] AS I SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF WORSHIP: THE LORD IS NOT A GOD OF CONFUSION. HE SAYS IT VERY CLEARLY: "SURELY THE DAY 'IS' COMING. THIS PASSAGE IS ONE OF GOD'S REMINDERS THAT OUR SAVIOR IS COMING AND THAT WE NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR IT. WHEN WE DIE, THAT'S THE END OF OUR DAY OF OUR TIME FOR PREPARATION. THERE IS GOING TO BE NO MORE SECOND CHANCES. NO REINCARNATION OR PURGATORY. ALL THE OTHER REASONS THAT PEOPLE WILL SAY ABOUT THAT ARE JUST LIES. WE'RE ALL IN. READY OR NOT. THE LORD SAYS IN ECCLESIASTES [CHAPTER 12:6,7] "REMEMBER HIM -" AND HE PICTURES DEATH THIS WAY - "BEFORE THE SILVER CORD IS SEVERED, OR THE GOLDEN BOWL IS BROKEN; BEFORE THE PITCHER IS SHATTERED AT THE SPRING, OR THE WHEEL BROKEN AT THE WELL, AND THE DUST RETURNS TO THE GROUND IT CAME FROM, AND THE SPIRIT RETURNS TO GOD WHO GAVE IT." GOD'S TELLING US THAT ON THE DAY WE DIE OUR SPIRIT RETURNS TO HIM ... TO GOD. AND HE IS EITHER WELCOMING US INTO HEAVEN, OR CASTING US INTO HELL. IT'S OUR BODIES THAT JOIN OUR SPIRIT IN HEAVEN OR HELL ON JUDGMENT DAY. SO THE LORD REMINDS US - WE ARE APPROACHING THAT LAST DAY, THAT DAY OF JUDGMENT. HE REMINDS US AGAIN ... IT'S GOING TO BE BOTH A GREAT DAY, BUT ALSO A DREADFUL DAY. AS WE HEARD JESUS SAY EARLIER: IT WILL BE A DAY DETERMINED BY OUR FAITH IN HIM, OR LACK OF FAITH. AND TO THAT THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. YOU'LL EITHER END UP IN HELL - A PLACE LIKE A FIERY FURNACE - OR IN HEAVEN. I THINK OF WISCONSIN, BEING FROM THERE. LIKE A CALF FROLICKING IN A FIELD. EVER SEEN A CALF LET OUT OF A BARN THE FIRST TIME IN SPRING? [LAUGHING] THAT'S THE HAPPIEST THING EVER! THE LORD WANTS US TO THINK ABOUT THOSE TWO ENDS. ONE END, THE LORD RIGHTLY CALLS DREADFUL. FOR ALL THE ARROGANCE, FOR EVERY EVILDOER THE LORD SAYS ON THAT DAY THEY'RE GOING TO BE LIKE STUBBLE. ON THAT DAY GOD HIMSELF SAYS: HE'S GOING TO SET THEM ON FIRE. HE PICTURES THEM LIKE BEING BROUGHT INTO A FURNACE. HE ADDS NOTHING SHALL BE LEFT. NOT ROOTS OR BRANCH WILL BE LEFT OF THEM. THERE WILL BE ASHES UNDERFOOT. THE LORD HERE IS USING THAT VIVID IMAGERY SO THAT EVERYONE IS CAUGHT UP TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE'S GIVING A SEVERE WARNING - THE ARROGANT, THE EVILDOERS, WILL BE THOSE WHO THOUGH YET REMAIN IN THEIR SINS THEIR SINS REMAIN UNFORGIVEN BECAUSE THEY REFUSE GOD'S FORGIVENESS. WITHOUT BELIEVING GOD, WITHOUT FAITH THAT GOD GIVES THROUGH HIS WORD; THEY THOUGHT WELL, WE DON'T NEED HIM. WE DON'T NEED HIS LOVE. WE DON'T NEED HIS FORGIVENESS. THEY THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD RULE THEIR OWN LIVES TODAY AND FOR ETERNITY. THEY THOUGHT THEY THEMSELVES COULD DETERMINE WHETHER THEY WOULD ENTER HEAVEN OR HELL BY WHAT THEY DESIRED AND WHAT THEY DID. GOD IS NOT A GOD OF CONFUSION. GOD'S ANSWER IS VERY SIMPLE. THEY ARE DEAD WRONG. HE SAID THAT ALL WITHOUT FAITH WILL END UP AS SO MUCH STUBBLE AND ASH IN HELL'S UNENDING FIRE. THEY HAVE NO SAY IN THAT. THERE'S NO DEBATE. THERE WILL BE NO SECOND CHANCES. THEY WILL BE CAST DOWN IN HEAVEN ... FROM OUR GOD IN HEAVEN ... INTO HELL. WHERE THEY WILL BE REJECTED BY GOD FOREVER. THERE IS ETERNAL FIRE BY GOD PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS. HE TELLS US THAT. AND THEY WHO DIE IN UNBELIEF ARE GONNA ENTER WITH THEM. THAT'S WHY BOTH ON THE DAY OF THEIR DEATH, AND GOD'S JUDGMENT DAY ... ARE TRULY DREADFUL DAYS. AND WE'RE WARNED; WE NEVER WANT THIS TO BE OURS. INSTEAD, HE ALSO INVITES US TO HEAR THIS WORD, AND BY IT ALSO BE SAVED. ALL IN FAITH WHO COME TO OUR FATHER ON THE LAST DAY WILL FIND THIS A GREAT DAY OF JOY. A DAY OF CELEBRATION. FOR THOSE WHO ARE THERE, FOR THOSE WHO CALL UPON HIM AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR, FOR THOSE WHO ... WHO LIVED WITH THEIR FAITH IN HIM, THE LORD PROMISES THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL RISE WITH HEALING IN ITS WINGS. HE SAYS YOU WILL GO AND LEAP LIKE CALVES RELEASED FROM THE STALL. IT'S GONNA BE GREAT! IT'S GONNA BE LIKE SUNRISE AFTER A LONG AND DREARY NIGHT. IT'S GONNA BE HAVING AGAIN THE STRENGTH OF YOUTH; WHEN YOU STAND UP YOUR KNEES DON'T ACHE ANYMORE. AND THE WISDOM OF GOD WITHOUT FEAR THAT WHEN YOU'VE GOT THE THINGS WRONG. YOU JUST HAVE THIS PURE JOY THAT EVERYTHING IS RIGHT. EVERYTHING IS SO RIGHT FILLING YOU BECAUSE ALL OF THE WORRIES, THE WONDERS, THE WEAKNESSES OF THIS DAY ARE FOREVER GONE. HEAR HIS WORD. GOD'S PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS. IT'S GONNA COME. AND IT'S GONNA END THE SADNESS OF THIS SINFUL WORLD IN WHICH WE NOW LIVE. ON THAT GREAT DAY EVERYBODY WITH HOPE IS GOING TO BE REVEALED AND REALIZE ALL THE WRONGNESS OF THIS WORLD NOW WHICH IS WARRING AGAINST GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS EVERY HURT, EVERY HARM SUDDENLY COMPLETELY ENDED. WE'LL SEE THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA COMING WITH CHRIST ON HIS THRONE. AND HIS BELIEVERS WILL JOIN HIM. THEY'LL ENTER INTO THAT ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS WHERE EVERYTHING IS PERFECT AND JOY AND DELIGHTFUL FOREVER AND EVER. WHY IS GOD SHARING WITH US AGAIN THIS DAY THE REVELATION OF THAT LAST DAY THAT IT'S GONNA BE BOTH A GREAT AND YET THIS DREADFUL DAY? JUST BECAUSE THE LORD GOD LOVES EVERYONE. AND HE WANTS ALL TO BE SAVED. HE WANTS ALL OF US TO SHARE IN ITS GREATNESS. HE WANTS YOU TO TRUST THAT HIS WORD, THAT HE HAS SHARED WITH YOU, THAT HE HAS JUSTIFIED YOU. THAT HE HAS NOW DECLARED YOU RIGHTEOUS IN HIS SIGHT. THAT IT'S REAL! AND YOU'LL SEE HIS FULFILLMENT ON THAT DAY! HE'S INVITING YOU TO RECEIVE THAT RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAT JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH AND SO LOOK FORWARD TO THAT DAY WHEN YOU WILL FINALLY BE TRANSFORMED INTO GLORY - THAT FULLNESS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGHOUT. GOD HAS JUSTIFIED YOU! GOD HAS ALREADY DECLARED YOU INNOCENT OF 'ALL' YOUR SINS. HE'S FORGIVEN 'ALL' 'ALL' OF OUR SINS ... OUR OUR THOUGHTS, OUR THOUGHTS OF ADULTERY, THE MURDERS, OUR THOUGHTS OF WORDS AND EVEN ACTIONS. GOD HAS FORGIVEN THEM ALL THROUGH JESUS. BECAUSE JESUS TOOK THE DEBT OF ALL OF OUR SINS UPON HIMSELF AND HE HAS PAID THAT DEBT AS WE HEARD, IN HEBREWS, ONCE AND FOR ALL. MY FAVORITE WORD IN GREEK REMEMBER: "HAPAX" ... ONCE FOR ALL. THIS IS WHY IT'S SUCH A WONDROUS WORD. IT'S ALL NO UNCHANGING, NO CONFUSION. SINS ARE COMPLETELY FORGIVEN. ONCE FOR ALL ALREADY WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS. AND SO GOD'S FORGIVENESS IS NOW PREACHED IN JESUS' NAME TO ALL! OUR STATUS THAT HE HAS GIVEN US THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS WILL COME WITH CERTAINTY THAT NEW AND ETERNAL AND RIGHTEOUS AND JOYOUS LIFE IN HEAVEN. BY SHARING THIS REVELATION OF THE CERTAIN FUTURE GOD IS AGAIN INVITING AND EMPOWERING US TO SEE THAT YES, ALTHOUGH WHAT WE DESERVE FOR OUR SINS THE PICTURE OF HELL. BUT WHAT WE ALSO ... GRACIOUSLY HE OFFERS US INSTEAD THAT RIGHTEOUS JUMPING AROUND WITH JOY. HE INVITES US ONCE AGAIN BELIEVE WE ARE SAVED. THIS TOO AWAITS YOU. THE LORD PROMISES AND WARNS. HOW CAN WE BELIEVE THIS FANTASTIC, THIS FINAL JUDGMENT IS REALLY COMING AND THIS WORD IS GOD'S ALONE AND NOT ALL OTHERS BUT GOD WORKS WITHIN US. GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, HE WORKS TO GIVE US THAT CERTAINTY OF FAITH. AS HE WORKS THROUGHOUT THIS WORLD. AND SO THAT'S WHY AGAIN YOU ARE SO WISE AS YOU ARE HERE AGAIN TO HEAR HIM. WHY NOW YOU ALSO WITH HEARTS OF LOVE WANT TO GO OUT AND SHARE THIS VERY WORD WITH OTHERS BECAUSE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD WORK IN THEM TOO THAT THEY MIGHT BELIEVE THAT THEY, TOO, ARE SAVED - TO STUDY AND SHARE THIS WORD. BY THIS WORD, HE MAKES DEAD SOULS ALIVE WITH FAITH AND BY THIS WORD HE STRENGTHENS OUR FAITH. AND SO TURN AGAIN AND AGAIN HEAR MOSES AND THE PROPHETS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. HEAR THE WORDS THAT TESTIFY ABOUT JESUS AS THE VERY CHRIST PROMISED AND REVEALED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT. THIS IS HOW WE ARE SAVED. BY THIS WORD THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS ALREADY GRANTED YOU AND I FAITH AND BY THIS WORD HE CONTINUES TO GROW AND STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH. SO CONTINUE IN THIS WORD. HEAR, BELIEVE, GROW IN STRENGTH, AND BE SAVED. GOD'S WORD IS TRUE. AND HE SAYS: SURELY THE DAY IS COMING! BE PREPARED! WHEN JESUS COMES AGAIN, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT LAST JUDGMENT FOR THE WICKED AND THOSE WHO BELIEVE BY GRACE IS HEAVEN OR HELL. FOR THIS DAY, REJOICE AND BELIEVE. BECAUSE YOU ARE PREPARED! THE DAY IS COMING SOON. AND YOU WILL BE WITH CHRIST IN HEAVEN FOREVER. AMEN.
