For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. Philippians 3:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I have met many, including in my own biological family, that when it is tactfully explained to them their lifestyle is sinful, they just turn their heads away. I know I might just as well talk to the wall because they are not listening. They enjoy that lifestyle and have no intention of giving it up. They foolishly believe there is no consequences for their debauched lifestyle. Sometimes people don’t like being told that they are personally responsible for the consequence of their lifestyles.
They are deadly wrong.
It begins to catch up with them in their early forties and progressively gets worse as they age. It starts out slowly but as they age, their body and mind begins to become weaker and more sustainable to mental and physical diseases. Finally, in their final years they are bitter, lonely, shells of a human being waiting to die.
The strange thing is that they are in a living hell and want to die but are afraid of death because they know they will be cast into the eternal Hell when they pass on to the other side.
Please do not be like them.
Repent now and live a godly life or suffer the eternal consequences later.
Prayer: I humbly implore You, Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:2 The LORD the Judge ) to grant me the wisdom and grace to reach the heart and mind of those blasting down the highway to hell to convince them to turn from their wicked ways less they suffer eternal damnation. I candidly request this petition in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the wisdom to turn from darkness to the eternal light right now before it is too late. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah
I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years.
He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him.
The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved.
This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist.
This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members.
It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years.
I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Amen! It’s not easy to tell the hard truth of a sinful lifestyle. Grace is easy to tell people, but pending judgement is something many cower away from saying. Good message! God bless

We all know when we are leading a sinful life.
The important part is when someone comes along and respectfully points it out and then offers a way out, His name is Jesus.
May Jehovah bless you with numerous opportunities to free many slave to sin freedom through Christ.

Amen! Yes I really pray God would use me to bring many to salvation for Gods glory. I pray God will use you mightily too!

It is sometimes necessary for a person to reach “bottom” before they can surrender. Prayer for a person’s salvation is often much more effective than confrontation of them and their sins.

If you look at most of the great contemporaries, they did not surrender their lives to Christ until they hit rock bottom.

My point exactly.

Not to put myself in their company but that is exactly what happened to me

And me, Sir. The cross is our Salvation is the great news.
