Time Passages
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Whiter than Snow

Isaiah 59:1-2  “Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.  But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

These two verses outline the problem that all of us must, at some point, come to terms with.  The first verse reveals the fact that God is able to save.  He can save the wickedest of the wicked and will grant eternal life to “all” who will come to him in sincerety and accept the sacrifice that he made for us.  The second verse reveals that sin separates is from God and it must be dealt with.  Gods love for us is far beyond our ability to grasp and he desires to have a relationship with each of us.  But he is also completely holy, perfect in every way, and never changes.  This is comforting because it means that we can trust him.  But it also means that sin cannot be in his presence.  So while God fervently desires a relationship with us, sin keeps us apart from him. 

Romans 3:23  “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Every person has fallen short.  It doesn’t matter if a person is a murderer who disrupts the lives of their contemporaries or just an ordinary citizen who does their best to be a good person.  It doesn’t matter how much a person may be involved with a church or what kind of a title they attach to themselves.  All have sinned and if one goes into eternity without this sin being taken care of, they will abide forever, apart from God, in a place of everlasting torment and despair.  Please grasp the seriousness of this matter because none of us are promised a tomorrow in this world.  A soul is an eternal entity and, once in existance, it will “never” cease to be.  This next passage outlines the problem and reveals the solution.

Romans 5:8-9  “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”

Jesus Christ is the only begotton Son of God.  He came into this world, born of a virgin, and his blood was pure.  He was tempted in all points as we are, and yet never sinned.  He went to the cross to pay for our sin.  Every sin; every bad thought and sinister plot was paid for on the cross by the precious blood of Jesus.  There’s an old saying, “I owed a debt that I could never pay.  He paid a debt that he did not owe.”  Because of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection, we can be made whiter than snow.  Through faith in Christ, we have forgiveness of sins and can be made in right standing with the Father. 

Romans 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

This gift of salvation is offered to all.  Regardless of a persons past the blood of Jesus can wash away all sin and make the vilest of the vile a new creation.  This next verse is awesome!

II Corinthians 5:17  “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are made new.”

A person has no idea of what true life and real peace is until they come to Jesus.  As I write this, I have no idea as to who may read it, but I know that God desires for you to have eternal life.  Your sin separates you from God, but if you will, in sincerety, ask Jesus for forgiveness and accept his death on the cross as payment for your sins, he will save you from the moment that you first believe on him.  Your name will be written in the book of life and your eternal destination altered.  You don’t have to die in your sins.  Our sins have been paid for by Jesus Christ and there’s room at the cross for you. 

John 6:37  “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

The invitation is to all.  More insight into this can be found on the page titled “Salvation.”  My prayer is that I’ll see you on the other side, in a place of everlasting peace and joy unspeakable.  Sorrow, death; even time itself, will have no standing in this place.
