This was my first thought when I received a text this morning on the demise of one of the children of our church family. However, since I didn’t know the young man personally, I can’t say for sure that he was or was not saved. I just know that when you don’t serve the Lord consistently, the Devil WILL sift you as wheat, and if you continue in sin and desecrate His bodily temple (your body), then God will judge you for it, in sickness or in death.
Young folk today have no idea what they’re getting into when they take drugs. They think it’s “cool”, they want to impress their friends, or maybe they just give up on life and indulge themselves to an early grave. Drugs are never the answer to anyone’s problems, even though Satan will make them look desirable and cool and every other LIE he can dish up. He doesn’t tell you of the END of your sin, he only shows you the bright lights and fun times of sin. He never shows you the drugged-out carcasses of people in their prime, still alive while dying inside. He never shows you the grieving family at the funerals. He never tells you to quit your sins (except in the demonic Lordship Salvation cult, then he says it all the time). Then he makes you keep sinning until you end up in Hell (if you’re lost) or die a premature death (if you’re saved, see 1 Corinthians 5). The Devil is a LIAR, and there is no truth in him whatsoever.
Let me tell you this, young people: THE DEVIL IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!! HE HATES YOU!! HE WANTS YOU TO DIE IN YOUR SINS SO HE CAN HAVE ONE MORE TROPHY IN HELL WHEN HE DROPS INTO HELL! He wants to tear up your life, your family, your goals, your dreams, all of it!! Am I preaching yet? I don’t care that I’m a woman, I hate the Devil and I HATE what he does to people, both young and old.
My son and I went to a Wawa yesterday. At the door was a poor, skinny, hopeless-looking woman. Probably a meth addict. She was so thin she looked like a shell of a human being. She held the door open for us as we went in. I had to wait for my order, so I stayed inside when my son left. Then when I left, a poor, skinny, hopeless-looking man (another meth addict?) opened the door for me. I thought, are they married? Do they know each other? Or are they in a similar or same predicament?
I often see drugged-out people hanging out at Wawas, hoping for change from passers-by. I never give anyone money (unless the Lord prompts me to). It’s heartbreaking to see people in that state. Their days are numbered. Now I’m chastising myself because I didn’t give those people a tract!! Forgive me, Lord! 😦
If you’re a Christian on fire for God, you ought to pass out Gospel tracts to everyone you see. So what if people look at you like you’re weird. You’re “weird” for Jesus!! Nobody knows how long we have left on this earth. I’m preaching to myself too. You never know who will read it and get saved! Just be careful that the tracts are GENUINE Gospel tracts. I will show you one I got from the Jesus-Is-Savior.com website. You can download it and print them out yourself! This is a .pdf file, so open it and print it out ASAP!
