Why Do We Reject The Warnings Given?
When I was a child my parents took us to an amusement park and the one ride I hated far above any other ride was “The Monster Plantation”. It wasn’t the monsters that made me hate the ride, it wasn’t even the creepy “happy” monster music. Although, it was all apart of the ride, what scared me was the panic in the voice of the guide telling us we were going the wrong way, it was the voices saying, “STOP!! Don’t go that way” it was the Warnings that echo in my ears today!! The ride took us through and at the end the guide was very grateful that we made it out safely.
This may sound crazy, but...
I have been watching the progress of Hurricane Florence and I have read the many warnings and advice for evacuation, some even given a mandatory evacuation. The sounds of the emergency warnings ring in my ears as I know that the impending storm is headed towards those that I love and care about.
So many people look at the storm coming, they hear the warnings, they see the signs but They settle in their little homes and whether they say it out loud or not, they don’t really believe the trouble that is coming. They think that they can handle the storm, or that they will be ok. They sit in a “danger zone” and then ask for prayer. I have been praying and will continue pray, but it seems that knowing the danger and ignoring the signs and warnings is ignoring the fact that God put people in your path to warn you.
As a Christian this sounds all too familiar.
There is a day coming when Jesus Returns. It will be soon. So many warnings have gone out, so many have given out how to escape, yet this lost and dying world ignore the signs they ignore the warnings and look for other ways.
They believe they are ok; or they just simply do not believe it will happen at all. I am saddened because we know that those who reject Christ will face an eternity of torment and pain. I pray that God will open the hearts of those around that are hearing the warnings of a soon coming judgment day and they will accept their only way of escape and that is through Jesus Christ and his precious blood.
I have never understood why people reject the warnings “ Christ is coming”. But then I see how so many people are ignoring this storm has made me realise that people have the “idea” that it won’t happen to me. Warnings are given to protect you, when you don’t heed to the warnings and advice nothing else can be done. There will be lives lost and homes destroyed due to this storm and the fact that they decided to ignore the warnings given and there will be millions of people in hell because they ignore the advice and don’t heed the warnings given..
If you’re in the path of this storm, leave before it is too late!!
If you are lost without Christ, accept him before it is too late!!
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
