THE LOST

JUST IN MEN'S EYES ONLY
He said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight. Luke 16:15


CONSCIENCE.
ALL OF US HAVE A GOD-GIVEN CONSCIENCE.
GOD'S LAW IS WRITTEN IN OUR HEARTS.
But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel: After those days, says the Lord, I will put My law within them, and on their hearts will I write it; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. Jer 31:33

They demonstrate that God's law is written within them, for their own consciences either accuse them or tell them they are doing what is right. Rom 2:15(NLT)


Now we know that what things soever the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Rom 3:19,20


CAN WE BE MADE RIGHT THRU THE LAW?
No.
But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Rom 3:21-26


MAN'S CONDITION.
LOVERS OF SELVES.
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 2 Tim 3:1-5


WE MUST REPENT.
APPOINTED A DAY.
In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead." Acts 17:30,31


JUDGMENT
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. Heb 9:27


WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN
Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him." Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus *said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?" Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3:1-6


WRATH
Father, You raised Jesus from the dead, and through Jesus we can be delivered from the wrath that is to come. 1 Thes 1:10

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thes 5:9


He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36


Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Rom 5:9


It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Heb 10:31


GOD HAS GIVEN US NEW LIFE
IN ADAM we ALL died, but IN CHRIST we are ALL made alive. 1 COR 15:22


Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Joh 5:24
