No Middle Ground

No middle ground.

My grandfather, the late Rev. Herbert Jarvis, Just finished preaching the Sunday sermon out of the book of Revelation. My grandfather preached about Christians being in a war with Satan. And yes, his word’s scared me, and at that moment, I made up my mind to be neutral. I was not on God’s side or Satan’s side.

After Sunday service, I stopped at my grandmother's house, no, not for dinner, or to visit; I stop by their house to borrow money. I knocked on the door, and my uncle Dickey let me in and said grandma is upstairs. I called out, granny, and she said, come up, come up.

While standing in the upstairs living room, we discussed
The sermon which my Grandfather had preached and I said I am going to remain neutral; I am not on God’s side or Satan’s side. When my late grandmother heard these words, she said, come, son, sit by me as she padded the couch pillows. As I sat down, my grandmother, the late Evan. Gladys pulled out this giant Bible and turned to (Revelation 3:15-16). And she began to read the two verses which were spoken by Jesus.

Open your Bible to (Rev.3:14,16)
I will read these verse.

(V-14), And to the angel of the Church of the Laodicea’s
Write, these things says the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the beginning of the creation of God.
(V-15), I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
(V-16), So then, because you are lukewarm, and nether cold or hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

Open your Bible to (Matt.12:30).

Jesus said, He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Oh, it was me, Dennis, my grandmother, was speaking to, and no,’ I was not a pastor when my grandmother informed me that there is no neutral ground when it comes to salvation.

Although salvation is a free gift God has given to the whole world, however, God’s gift of salvation must be accepted by faith from each recipient who wants to experience eternal life in heaven with the Father.
(Please read (Jn.1:12), (Jn.3:16),

Open your Bible to (Mark 16:16)
I will read the verse for your hearing.

(V-16), He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. No one has to be condemned, no matter the sin.

Open your Bible to (Jn.3:16)
Let’s read the verse together

(V-16) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Now open your Bible to (Rom.10:8-10)

(V-8), But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart that is, the word of faith which we preach;
(V-9), that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.
(10), For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

The Lord said today, I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.

Your church is the typical den of devils if you do not believe God hates all divorce from a covenant marriage and that only DEATH ends that bond.
