Jun | 11 | Dealing with the ‘Slipers’ who die without the Savior


Dealing with the ‘Slipers’ who die without the Savior

John 3:36
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. NKJV 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. NKJV

The group slowly traversed their way along the very narrow ledge high up in the cold peaks of the pass. They had traveled for some time together now, sometimes laughing and sometimes crying, but they were together, knit like lovers on this journey of a lifetime. Friendships were fostered and hatreds were coped with. Some knew they would be home at last, others did not even care, for the journey was their home now. Others though, just a few, had a dark foreboding concerning their own future, but really, it only reared its head occasionally in the darkness of their night, when the cold vapors of the high plateau chilled them to the bone.

No one knew how he slipped, but slip he did, and screaming Doppler like, he disappeared from their sight down to the damned depths below which lay hidden underneath the black clouds beneath them which, day after all the long hard trudging day, waited patiently for their walking to end. Some say, the dark depths beneath them never ended and that his falling and screaming would continue forever. Some say he would hit the jagged rocks perpetually until he was shredded into striped jerky and some others, even said that a fiery pit awaited all the fallers, yes, all the fallers that is which did not have a flight plan to guide their falling home. Even so, he was now gone from them and the group momentarily mourned his slipping.

Some said “His like would never be seen again,” whilst others proclaimed him as a passing “genius,” and most were thankful for his previous company and the laughter he had brought to their lives. Meanwhile the dark and silent, swirling clouds beneath them, smirked at all the conciliatory nonsense and simply waited for another slipping whilst the monstrous depths below them all longed to be fed once more. Still, the group all continued on, along the narrow path, whilst those with a ticket home, knowing the ‘slip-er’ had none, never the less, still smiled and sighed and said “What a great and dashing guy he was. I am so thankful for every remembrance of him. How sad, how shocking that he is gone. I mean who would have expected it?”

The age of social connectivity and continual news feeds now reports with increasing regularity to us who also await ‘the slip,’ the deaths of the famous and infamous, the celebrity and influencer, the mover and the shakers in their field, and with each ‘slipping’ tragedy (for that is what it is) the present Christians join the pagan ‘chataratzi’ (for that is what it is) in a smiling eulogizing of the damned and in the communal prettifying of those who for all their life had wrath abiding on them. The damned beginnings and eternal death of the recently departed have all now been so consistently and constantly covered with verbal flowers that even those who supposedly know the truth of what lay beneath the black clouds, daily deny that same truth with their continued silence regarding it, and even pervert it with their joint and smiling eulogy, and so much so, that even the flight plan in their own warm pocket means less to them each day and their witness to the same is become nothing but an embarrassing joke to those they once shared it with, for it is evident to all around them that they really don’t believe ‘that stuff’ anyway. No, not really.

The verse of tonight, tells us that this wrath, this angel dusted anger, this furious abhorrence, lives upon and eternally remains with those who are ‘the lost,’ with those who are ‘the damned,’ and so subsequently, because of this, such ‘slipers’ shall never see life but forever and ever, in unending darkness and eternal dread, shall have death to be their torturer. This is the end of all the ‘slipers’ without a Savior. This is the Word of the Lord.

To kiss the Son in believing faith is to have the ‘W’ of wrath wiped from the back of our once hardened necks. Jesus the Son, you see, is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life. Therefore, if you have Him, then you have everything. If you do not have Him, then God’s fury resides perpetually upon you and you are ‘the damned.’

If this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Lord, then Christian, be careful what you say when yet another slips over the edge into the waiting abyss. Tell me now, for to be sure, I wonder: do YOU believe this Bible?

Listen:- Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalms 2:12 NKJV

Pray: -  Frankly O Lord, this is unwelcome knowledge to the blind. Frankly O Lord, sharing it just gets me into trouble! Frankly O Lord, the burden of the truth of it is just too much to bear, especially on sunshine days or days of hopeless weeping. Your word is too serious a thing to know, too majestical to mess with, too sharp to touch, too terrible to communicate. We cannot handle it and all our sword dancing is testimony to the same. Let Your conviction fall upon the lost and lighted the dark mind of the damned an make us, the redeemed, beacons of hope and light and golden laughter all. Amen and let it be so.
