Daily Fountain 2017 - Run To Jesus For Salvation

Friday June 23

Bible Reading:     Gen. 17: 12 - 28
Topic:         Run to Jesus For Salvation

The young men had an opportunity to hear about heaven and hell preached to them clearly and convincingly but they decided not to give their lives to Christ.

They did not answer the 'what if heaven and hell prove to exist in the end?" question

Unfortunately as these two failed to consider this question, so there are many who have likewise ignored this question.

The second coming of Christ and God's sure judgment that will follow, we can compare with God's judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah (v. 14)

Lot seemed like a joke to his in-laws and the people of Sodom.

They did not escape for their lives and were thus destroyed by brimstone and fire.

Eternal torture and torment in hell fire awaits all who forsake the salvation that is in Christ Jesus (Heb. 2: 1 - 3; Rev. 20: 11. 12, 15)

Escape for your life and avoid ending your life in hell fire.

As the Angels took Lot and Lot's wife and were merciful to them (v. 16); so you have a warning to escape for your life

Help me Oh Lord to heed and follow the Angel's leading men out of the doomed city of today's world to your heavenly city of salvation through Jesus Christ, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 19: 17
"And it came to pass, when they (the Angels) had brought forth them (Lot, his wife and his two virgin daughters) abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life, look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain, escape to the mountain lest thou be consumed."
