Why will ye die!

He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herbs for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth…Psalm 104:14
Once again, it is time to celebrate the “almost overlooked holiday” of Thanksgiving. It seems like folks are so caught up with themselves that they forget that if not for God, they would have nothing. I am thankful that many years ago in March 1974 at the young age of 18, I saw myself as a lost hell-bound sinner that needed to repent by turning to Jesus Christ, the Son of God for salvation. It is He who suffered, bled and died for my sins on a cross at Calvary. It is through Him that we can have forgiveness of sin in our lives. He is the only way, there is no other way. This is a “heart” thing. Without Him you can do nothing. These scriptures from the King James Bible say: Romans 3:10—As it is written there is none righteous, no not one. Romans 3:23—For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
Romans 10:9—If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
As the title of this article states, I ask the question: Why will ye die? Of course I am wondering why people go from day to day not even considering their spiritual destiny. It is the most important decision one will make in their life, for this decision is about eternity, which is forever and ever. Also, I wonder why so many people, even Christians, do not even care about finding out what God loves and hates and doing their best to please the one who created them. So much time, effort and money has been spent in the year on the very things that God hates. Such as, the holiday that focuses on witchcraft, sorcery and ghoulish things. We all know which holiday this is, right? I don’t even have to say it. It seems to get worse and worse as the years go by. It’s a shame that so many people are caught up in evil things. You are probably wondering what gives me the right to speak such things, well, I do know that in a King James Bible, the Old and New Testament both emphatically state that God hates witchcraft and sorcery and also states what he will do to a nation that is caught up in this. It grieves me and worries me what our God feels about such practices.
So this Thanksgiving holiday, give thanks—for many of us are still living and breathing and enjoying the good things God has provided, although I don’t know how long we as a nation will continue to have this.
Until next time!
