Repent or Perish: The Choice Jesus gives!


That was what Jesus said!

“And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God” (Luke 13:3, 5-New Living Translation).

Ignorance of the godly message that Jesus proclaimed will tell you that He preached a message of love and acceptance of people’s crazy and devilish ways. You see it in all the politically correct garbage of the world that tells you must all accept each other’s goofy ways and sinful lifestyles. Not according to Jesus! 

No, Jesus did not preach and teach that we had to accept adulterous, fornicating, lying, cheating, stealing, homosexual, transvestite, and lesbian lifestyles. Jesus did not teach “coexistence” with idolatrous and perverse religions and ideologies. 

His message was one of repentance, turning from devilish lifestyles, and serving and loving God. Not ONE verse in the Gospels ever insinuates acceptance of sin and darkness, but a rejection of sin and evil ways. The words of Jesus are filled with living a Holy lifestyle in obedience to God, His Word, and commandments. 

Do you want to read what Jesus preached and taught everywhere? Here was a huge part of it. 

He (Jesus) said, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the gospel!”(Mark 1:15 New English Translation)

To repent is to turn away from your sins, change from the sinful way you think and act, stop your wrong ways, change your heart and lives and be against sin and for God, and even to turn to God from your sins. Those are all definitions given in other New Testament translations. The Amplified Bible tells us that to repent means to “change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life.”

In these podcasts, we focus on national repentance, but there are truths here applicable to our personal lives. National repentance will not happen without individual repentance.

Though the USA is seeing slightly better days than under the ungodly Obama administration, there is a long way to go. Under Obama, we saw the exaltation of homosexuality (LGBT and all its demonic offspring), the continued and increasing murder of unborn children (abortion), the embracing of false religion (Islam), and the condemnation and demonization of Christianity and Christians. We actually see in America a great divide between believers and unbelievers, and a strong distinction appearing and solidifying between the world and its sinful ways and those that love God, His Word, and His son Jesus. 

The mainstream media has become increasingly inclined towards heathenism and have become proponents of all that is contrary to God and His Word. They have targeted Christianity and Christians and attempted to make them look foolish and bigoted. Sadly, on many fronts they have succeeded in their endeavor to make Christianity look like something to be despised and rejected. Social media sites have followed their example and are doing everything they can do to stop the spread of Christian thought and teaching. They have wholeheartedly embraced demon inspired people and activities that are morally reprehensible.

So, what do we do as Christians? Do we bow down to the world and the devil? Do we cower and surrender? NO way! We continue teaching, preaching, and ministering under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. People’s eternal destinies depend on our never giving up. We don’t quit, and we don’t compromise the Word. We don’t water down the gospel of repentance and forgiveness. We preach and declare uncompromisingly as Jesus did, “Repent and believe the gospel”, and “repent or perish!”
