"The Acceptable Time"

 

“The Acceptable Time”

 

For He says:  I heard you in an acceptable time and I helped you in the day of salvation.  Look, now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation.       2 Corinthians 6:2

 

What is the ACCEPTABLE TIME?  The Apostle Paul, says NOW is the ACCEPTABLE TIME, because the Lord God, says:  I heard you in an ACCEPTABLE TIME, and I helped you in the DAY of SALVATION.  This refers to the RESURRECTION of JESUS CHRIST.  Mankind’s ACCEPTABLE TIME, and the DAY of SALVATION, was brought about by the RESURRECTION of the LORD JESUS CHRIST from the dead.

So, the Apostle Paul, knew that the ACCEPTABLE TIME for the DAY of SALVATION to take place is NOW.  However, that ACCEPTABLE TIME is NOT determined by mankind.  They cannot decide when they will be SAVED.  It will be when the Holy Spirit of God, draws them, bringing them under CONVICTION for their sins, and providing an opportunity for them to ACCEPT or REJECT the LORD JESUS CHRIST as their SAVIOR and LORD.  John 6:44 says: “No one can come to Me (Jesus) unless the Father (God) who sent Me draws him and I will raise him up on the last day.”  These were the Words of the Lord Jesus.  In other words, YOU can NOT decide that you will wait until you are dying and then call out to God.  He may not deal with you that long. And, you could die SUDDENLY WITHOUT any advance notice or warning. 

 

So, NOW is the DAY of SALVATION, it is the ACCEPTABLE TIME for you to answer His call, if He has been dealing with you, CONVICTING you of your sins. Times when you feel GUILTY and UNEASY with your sinful lifestyle.  If you continue to REJECT Jesus as your SAVIOR and LORD, you will end up spending your ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  You MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, because it is the ACCEPTABLE TIME.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
