Do Not Neglect So Great A Salvation!

Commentary By: Gordon King

Hebrews 2:3

how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation,

This is something to seriously ponder if you are not saved, if you have heard the good news of Jesus Christ yet neglect it then what will be your eternal destination?  Hell!  Eternal separation from God forever, a place of torment that will last for eternity!

The following is something very interesting which happened to me yesterday:

I was speaking with a very elderly gentleman yesterday, in fact he is over 100 years old, but in quite good condition considering his age, you wouldn’t even know it by looking at him.  He is a well-educated man with a professional career.  He brought up the subject of President Trump, saying that he was a dictator and how he is ruining this country.  Then he asked me if I were a “Trumper”?  “A what?” I responded?  Of course I knew what he meant but I didn’t want to get pulled into a political argument with him.  He asked me again if I were a Trumper?  I said I didn’t know what he meant.  He then asked me if I supported Trump?  I told him: “Yes, I fully support Trump and what he is doing.  He has held to his word and kept the promises that he made during his election campaign, such as moving the embassy to Jerusalem and supporting Israel and the Jews.  He then asked me if I were a Jew?  I said no, I am a Christian!  I am a child of God.” 

He told me that he was not an atheist but an agnostic.  He then said that any intelligent person wouldn’t believe the stories of the bible to be true, do you believe that Jonah’s story is real, and the flood of Noah?  I said that I sure do, in fact I believe the entire bible to be the truth, every last word!  Then I told him: “If a Christian does not believe the entire bible to be the truth then why should we believe any of it?”

This conversation continued for a while, and I told him that the bible proves itself to be true by the prophecies written thousands of years ago which have come to pass with 100% accuracy, all a person has to do is study the bible and research it and they will find the truth.  I told him how Jesus Christ fulfilled over 300 prophecies about Himself, and that it is a mathematical impossibility for this to happen if He was not in fact God!

I told him if I am right then when you die and you don’t believe in Jesus Christ where will you be?  If I am wrong then life goes on until you die, but if I am right?  He said that there are millions of starving women and children suffering on the planet, where is God?  I told him that God is here and I left it at that.  The elderly gentleman then said that we all have a right to our opinions, all I could do was agree with him, yes we do.

We do all have our opinions, but if we speak the truth about something then it is not an opinion but the truth!  This is the way the left sees things, all just opinions, all the truth according to our own interpretation of things.

After I left this gentleman a thought ran through my head: “What if this very elderly man has been given so much life compared to most of us because God is being very patient with him?  Because after more than 100 years this man has continually hardened his heart to God, has rejected the good news of Jesus Christ.  How shall he escape if he neglects so great a salvation?!”

The ending of the conversation that I had with this gentleman reminded me of the story of Charles Templeton, the popular evangelist who preached along side Billy Graham.  Mr. Templeton denied his faith because of the same reasons.  Where is God when people are starving and dying all around the world, when evil is running rampant?  How could a loving God allow such things?  I don’t have a good answer for that and I don’t know all of the reasons other than we live in a fallen world, and that is what I told the elderly gentleman.  But in the midst of it all there is a loving God, He is here, and believe it or not He is still in control of all things!

There is soon coming a time when the world will get even more evil, more wicked, more hateful, it will become more difficult, more dangerous, more perilous!  This time is known as the Tribulation Period, and it is coming quickly!  But there is an escape, there is a way out, and that way is by being born again, by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, it’s the only way!  How can we “escape” if we neglect so great a salvation?  Believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, you shall escape the coming wrath of God upon the world!

The rapture of the church is imminent, meaning that it could happen at any time!  Some say that I preach about the rapture as a way of escape, well yes!  Who in their right mind would want to be here during that time period?!  Hello!  Of course it’s an escape, the bible teaches us this, we are not appointed to wrath but to salvation through Jesus Christ, we are the bride of Christ, the church.  Why would God put His bride through His wrath?  That’s just it He wouldn’t!

If you are not yet saved then do not neglect so great a salvation, you may not have near as much time as the elderly man has.  All of our days are numbered, we live in a temporary dwelling place upon this earth, and each dwelling place has a time limit, an expiration date.

We are living in the season of Christ’s return, both for the church and for His second coming.  Look up my friends for our redemption draws near!

Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Very interesting article Gordon. I have known and spoken with a lot of well education and they don’t believe in God.

    About 3 weeks ago, this Vietnam Vet lives across the street from my house. He’s 72, I think? Anyway I have always keeping myself in low profile. He asked me did I voted for Trump and I said yes, and he shook his head. He hates Trump. He believes Trump is a fake guy and believes Trump will screwing Americans. He thought Hillary Clinton would be a better President than Trump. He wanted to attack me (verbal) but he didn’t because he knew I wouldn’t taking his BS. He also asked me do I watching FOX NEWS and I said yes and he screamed. I couldn’t believe he shown of his true color. I was stunning of his poor behavior. I’ve told my wife about him and I’ve told my wife don’t bother to socialize with him again. I know he is not a believer. He drinks beer daily because I saw him sitting on his lawn chair and drank daily.

    You know Gordon, your parents, my parents back in old days they can talking about anything they want, such as about racial, religion, political, this, and that, right? Now we have to be CAREFUL WHAT TO SAY because nowadays everybody feel offended and they would say we are racist, we are Christians, We are Patriots, We are Trump supporter, We are BAD GUYS. Follow me?

    I’ve told my wife another day. Everybody hating Donald Trump. I know you get the picture. Another day I saw Internet posted about Trump are scaring a lot of people and many people are going for counseling because they fear Trump trigger end of the world. Are you kidding me? Gordon, this is my opinion, right now many people are looking for a world leader to solving the world problems and they are pointing the fingers at Donald Trump for trouble. I believe Antichrist after the rapture, many people will rooting for this little horn (Antichrist). Gordon, my wife and I couldn’t believe we are hearing from our friends and some relatives are hating Trump. I know you know about media are still attacking at Trump. Media are trying to get everybody to blaming at Trump. I believe Deep State will creating crisis and get everybody mad at Trump. I have never seen in my life today government are so corruption.

    About 2 or 3 nights ago I was having a bad dream and I was battle against demon. I woke up at 3am. Before I woke up, in the dream I was trying to say Lord Jesus Christ, Jesus is God and God is forever and I woke up. Before I went to bed, I read the Bible and I begged the Lord for the rapture. I believe it was demon fighting with me at around before 3am. I remember I was trying to moving my lip to say Jesus, and I couldn’t and kept fighting to say Lord Jesus and boom I woke up. I really hate that. Sometime in the dream I was frozen and I couldn’t move and I was trying to say God, Lord Jesus and I couldn’t and I kept fighting and finally I said Lord Jesus and boom I woke up. I can’t explain.

    Before closing yesterday I was browsing YouTube and this came my attention of Christian website that this man has a vision of Obama to replace Trump. I really hope not. This man, Obama have always made my skin crawling. I pray I hope we as Christian never see Obama to replace Trump.

    Come Lord Jesus. We are waiting for you for the rapture. This world is getting ugly. Please rapture us very soon. Amen!!!

  2. Thanks for your comment Jim!

    Fortunately everyone living in the U.S. is not a liberal! This is how they are, they hate Donald Trump, but I believe that most of them also hate Trump supporters! Many of them will even claim to be Christians, yet they support a President (Obama) who supports and defends abortion, gay marriage, and Islam! They do not defend Christian values nor do they stand up in defense of Jesus Christ, not that He needs it, but you know what I mean. How can they side with Jesus Christ if they stand against what He stands for? It makes no sense and is complete nonsense, it is crazy!

    Both you and I live in a part of the United States where it is very liberal, extremely liberal! That’s a fact. We see and hear liberal rhetoric each and everyday, we hear people denigrate Donald Trump and also Christianity. Like you said, we cannot pick a battle with every liberal that we meet, we must be wise and smart about what we say, what we do, and how we go about doing it. That’s not to say that we do not support Christian values, of course we do, nor is it to say that we do not share Jesus Christ with the world, we must allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, to tell us what to say and when to say it!

    Where I live I often see pickup trucks carrying very large American flags in the bed of the trucks, it warms my heart! And sometimes I see cars and trucks with Trump bumper stickers. I think the conservatives in this area are fed up with all of the liberal nonsense, they are becoming more brazen, more open, and more willing to defend the U.S. Constitution, conservative values, and Christianity. This is how I see the world, and specifically the United States, many Christian Americans are waking up to the evil liberal ways, they are standing for what is righteous and holy, they are defending the Constitution, they are more willing each day to defend their faith, to stand for God, to proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming soon! Unfortunately I don’t believe that enough of them are doing this, that it is a remnant of the church, however that remnant has strong faith in God!

    Your elderly neighbor wanted to verbally fight you on the matter of Donald Trump, I believe that this elderly gentleman I spoke about wanted to do the same thing with me, but he also knew that I would defend by beliefs, that I would defend my faith in God! Our discussion was a little heated, but it did not get out of hand, nor did we show any hatred towards one another, we kept it civil and respected each others right to make our own choices. However with that being said, I believe that most liberals in this country would not be so civil towards us, that they would show hatred and disdain for us and our beliefs.

    Isn’t it funny how liberals say that Christians are intolerant?! They claim to be the most tolerant people on earth, but in actuality they are the most intolerant! They do not tolerate anyone who goes against their beliefs, they hate them and label them as haters, as intolerant, and call us all sorts of names. But the truth is that Christians, I mean true Christians are some of the most tolerant people on the face of the earth. Tolerance does not mean that we compromise our faith and beliefs, nor does it mean that we agree with what they do or that we love it, we hate what most of them do, but we tolerate them regardless of the choices that they make, we don’t force them into submission, we don’t force them to believe what we believe we just tell them the truth! This doesn’t mean that we don’t fight for righteousness, that we don’t try to change laws which are ungodly and unholy, on the contrary, we do and we should try to change the laws which are an abomination to the Lord, this is not intolerance of people this is following God and His ways. We are to love everyone even our enemies, but that doesn’t mean that we love the choices that they make or condone them. If this is intolerance then I guess we are, but I would rather be intolerant and follow God then be tolerant and follow Satan! Jesus tolerated the choices people made, yet He did not condone what they did, He allowed them to make their own choices, He loved everyone even sinners, yet He told the truth whether anyone liked it or not. God will not force anyone to believe in His only begotten Son, but He will pour out His wrath one day upon the wicked!

    As far as Obama replacing Donald Trump as President, I don’t think it will happen. The 22nd Amendment to the Constitution forbids any president from sitting in the Oval Office for more than two terms. So unless the Constitution is either changed or misinterpreted it shouldn’t happen. However, I believe that he could run for Vice President, then if the President at that time died he could then step up as President again, I don’t know, its never happened before!

    We must keep looking up and eagerly awaiting for the rapture of the church my friend!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  3. I swear to God I went to the public library this afternoon and I was browsing the books and I saw a new book about Obama on the shelves. Not even Donald Trump book. I went to different library and still no book about Donald Trump. I was blown away. Seattle is famous of liberal and democrats. I nearly felt sick about saw new book about fake former Pres. Can’t he go away and be quiet!!???? For 8 years was enough of BS of him. ENOUGH!!!!! To be honest, people are deceived by Obama. I never never have trusted him, NEVER. People need to wake up before it too late.
