"Not Ashamed!"

“Not Ashamed!”

And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 1 John 2:28

The word ABIDING indicates a permanent living in Christ. When a TRUE BELIEVER TRULY ABIDES in Christ, they do it in FAITH and OBEDIENCE. This ABIDING is IMPERATIVE to the lifestyle of the BELIEVER. It is something that the TRUE BELIEVER has to PURSUE and WORK AT, because of the sinful world we live in, we MUST STRIVE to LIVE in FAITH and OBEDIENCE to the Lord Jesus Christ. And the ONLY WAY we can SUCCESSFULLY and TRULY be RIGHTEOUS is to LIVE or ABIDE in CHRIST JESUS.

Most ALL TRUE BELIEVERS, are ANXIOUSLY AWAITING the RETURN of CHRIST. For those who are ABIDING in CHRIST, and living in FAITH and OBEDIENCE to Him, this is the time, in which, we can have CONFIDENCE and NOT be ASHAMED at His COMING, which is the RAPTURE. Those who have been SAVED from their sins, and have PERSEVERED in FAITH and OBEDIENCE can have that CONFIDENCE, and NOT be ASHAMED, because they will stand before Christ, BLAMELESS, HOLY, and RIGHTEOUS, because they have ABIDED in Him.

However, there are MANY who PROFESS to be BELIEVERS, but have NOT PERSEVERED in FAITH and OBEDIENCE, through ABIDING in CHRIST. They actually have NO relationship with Him, and they will be ASHAMED at His appearance. Their DESTINY will be an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. Is this your DESTINY?

It is if you have NOT TRULY given your HEART and LIFE to God. And if you are PROFESSING but NOT POSSESSING His gift of SALVATION. In order to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, you MUST TRULY HAVE a RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ, and TRULY ABIDING in HIM. You MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ABIDE in HIM, having CONFIDENCE, and be NOT ASHAMED at His appearance. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
