We Must All Deal With God

No matter what anyone wants to say, think, or believe; sooner or later everyone is going to come face to face with the Almighty God of the Bible. While on earth, we have the freewill to choose what we want, believe what we want, and do what we want within the laws of the land; however, we will give an account for it all unto our Creator God. He is the Creator of us all and the Judge of us all. No matter who we are, where we come from, how we were raised, what our beliefs are, or what we have done in our lives, we will be judged by God. We will all answer to our Creator for the life, abilities, and opportunities He gave to us and what we did with them. We can use these things for our own gain and glory or we can choose to use them for His glory, but we cannot choose if we will be accountable to Him for our choice. Today, we are going to look at two men who had to deal with their Creator. They were both sneaky, tricky, deceivers; but they could not fake, deceive, or manipulate their way through this encounter with the Holy God. For both of them, their dealing with God changed them. It behooves us all to meet with our maker on a personal level before we finish life on earth and enter eternity. It is in our eternal best interest to come before Him willingly, repentantly, and obediently to seek forgiveness of our sins and to be brought into a right relationship with Him while we are still on earth. If we choose not to come before Him willingly before eternity, we will still have to do it in eternity. If we refuse to humble ourselves before Him willingly, we will still have to face Him in eternity. If we reject making things right with Him willingly in repentance before eternity, we will have no choice but to face our consequences for eternity. We must all deal with God sooner or later. If we do it early, willingly, and obediently, it is better for us later. If we wait until after life on earth is over, the result will be eternal separation from God in the place God prepared for the Devil and His angels; it will also have room for His deniers.
