“Satan seems paralyzed as he beholds the glory and majesty of Christ. He who was once a covering cherub remembers whence he has fallen. A shining seraph, “son of the morning;” how changed, how degraded! From the council where once he was honored, he is forever excluded. He sees another now standing near to the Father, veiling His glory. He has seen the crown placed upon the head of Christ by an angel of lofty stature and majestic presence, and he knows that the exalted position of this angel might have been his.

Satan sees that his voluntary rebellion has unfitted him for heaven. He has trained his powers to war against God; the purity, peace, and harmony of heaven would be to him supreme torture. His accusations against the mercy and justice of God are now silenced. The reproach which he has endeavored to cast upon Jehovah rests wholly upon himself. And now Satan bows down and confesses the justice of his sentence.” (White)


imgres“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12 Even Satan, one day will be held accountable before His Creator. So having this knowledge, As a Christian you must now look beyond today, and focus on our Saviors soon return and your ACCOUNTABILITY for how you live your life from day to day. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

As Christian our accountability will be an answerable account to our Creator who has given A commission to all who has a burning desire within their heart, and a responsibility of love as A child of God to spread the good news of the CROSS, and Jesus soon return. Matthew 24:14 says “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

This is a testimony from God. So His message will never be suppressed nor silenced. Luke 19:40 says I tell you,” He replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” But because of the LOVE, MERCY, and GRACE of God.

He has placed upon His Children this responsibility, simply because of His loving GRACE, and not because of anything that we have done. Yes my friends! SALVATION is FREE! it is given to us not for anything we have done but just because, God loves us. OH NO GREATER LOVE.

In Luke 7:41-42 it says “There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both…….. He sums up in four syllables The AWESOME LOVE, GRACE, and MERCY of our SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST when it says “He forgave them both.” That’s GRACE. GRACE to me has a starting FOCAL POINT, and A ending FOCAL POINT.

STARTING POINT. 1. When we work a forty-hour day and receive an honest pay for our time that is A WAGE. 2. When we run a race, and receive A trophy for our performance, that is A PRIZE. 3. When there is recognition from our peers for high achievements in one’s occupation, that is An AWARD. And the marvelous and beautiful,

ENDING POINT is 4. When we are incapable of earning a WAGE, cannot win A PRIZE, and deserve no AWARD, yet we receive a GIFT anyway that is imagesGRACE and the beginning FOCAL POINT of the story Christ Death on the CROSS and His RESURRECTION. And  the final FOCAL POINT of this story will end at His SECOND COMING When the Master will reply “WELL DONE, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”.

Friends our SALVATION is free but there must also be a response of LOVE from HIS CHILDREN. And that is The Message of the CROSS that we spread among our FRIENDS, FAMILY, LOVE ONE’S, NEIGHBORS, CO-WORKERS, and the WORLD my friends it is A simple message. Paul tells us in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” God required a sacrifice to pay the price for our sins. But there could be only one who paid this price.

So Jesus gave His life on the CROSS for our sins. in Acts 4:12 it says “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” So we see the price has been paid “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have ETERNAL LIFE.” John 3:16 so we will never be able to repay God for what He has done for us.

So How do we show our GRATITUDE and LOVE for what He has done. And how do we spend our TIME, and what must our RESPONSIBILITY be. For Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. So that tells me as a Christian who knows right from wrong I am ACCOUNTABLE for what I do.

So as we study GOD’S WORD and seek His SPIRIT, we come to the realization that because of GOD’S GRACE, we are liable, responsible, and answerable for our ACTIONS, and TIME, in this life that we spend from day to day. Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:8-9 that “For by grace are ye saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” So we must forever tell our self that

Hourglass Sand Timer Beach Sunrise“Our TIME belongs to God. Every moment is His, and we are under the most solemn obligation to improve it to His glory. Of no TALENT He has given will He require a more strict account than of our TIME. The value of time is beyond computation. Christ regarded every moment as precious, and it is thus that we should regard it. Life is too short to be trifled away.

We have but a few days of probation in which to prepare for ETERNITY. We have no TIME to waste, no TIME to devote to selfish pleasure, no TIME for the indulgence of sin. It is now that we are to form CHARACTERS for the future, and a IMMORTAL life for His kingdom. It is now that we are to prepare for the searching judgment.

The human family have scarcely begun to live when they begin to die, and the world’s incessant labor ends in nothingness unless a true knowledge in regard to eternal life is gained. The man who appreciates TIME as his working day will fit himself for a MANSION and for a life that is IMMORTAL. It is well that he was born.” (White Christ object lessons).

So Accountability is each of us as Christians challenging ourselves and one another to grow in Christ by the daily renewal of the MIND and BODY through the STUDY of GOD’S WORD and the seeking of HIS SPIRIT as we tell others of the GOOD NEWS of CHRIST SOON RETURN.

So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
