What’s the only appointment you must keep?

Your appointment with death.

“It is appointed unto man to die and after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27 

The Bible (Revelations 3:5, 20:12,15 and 21:27) speaks of many books. One of these is the book of life. The moment you believe on Christ and accept Him as Savior and Lord, your name is written in the book of life. Anyone who is not found in the book of life is cast into the lake of fire which burns forever.

In Africa people who were perfectly healthy, sometimes dropped dead. In these cases a witch doctor put an evil curse on the victim so he would pass on to the next world. I met a man who told me he wanted to marry a young woman and hired a local sorcerer to put a curse on his old wife. The villagers said she was perfectly healthy, but dropped dead.

I never heard of or saw a Christian drop dead from a witch doctor’s spell, while I worked in Africa.

A woman asked me to pray that the Lord take the cancer in her body away forever and ever.  After Adam and Eve sinned, Satan took control. The fallen world became diseased, and now there is no place on earth that is free of sickness and pain. 

But there is no suffering in Heaven.

If someone on this earth is always in pain but doesn’t know Christ, tell him about the Savior.  Who wants to spend a lifetime on earth in misery and then die to spend eternity in the torments of Hell?   It sounds like a double dose of suffering.

In Africa I treated the sick and evangelized to set people free from Satan and his eternal tortures. I don’t like to see people suffering on earth just to die and spend eternity in more agony.

Jesus told people to be ready at all times. Do you know the appointment date you have with your maker?  It is the only one you must keep. When you number is called, you got to go. And no one can break a fixed meeting with  God. It is appointed unto man to die and after this the judgment.  Believe on the Lord Jesus as Savior and you will be saved.    

Blessings,

Celeste
