In St. John 8:24, Jesus said: “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he ye shall die in your sins”.
What I want to talk about is the world`s greatest sin. The world`s greatest sin is not the sin of disobedience that Adam and Eve committed in the Garden of Eden when he told not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It is not even the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, the sin of homosexuality, perversion. Although these sins are very great they are not the world`s greatest sin.
The world`s greatest sin is the rejection of Jesus Christ. The world refuses to believe that Jesus is the chosen one, the anointed of God who took away the sin of the world. The word of God says they hated him without a cause. Furthermore, they refuse to make Jesus Lord of their lives. This sin has ushered in the Judgment of God upon the world. Moreover, people especially in the USA do not want to be told about their sin and rejecting Jesus Christ because they think that God is “good and understands us”. My bible says that God is angry with the wicked everyday. By nature the sinner man is a child of wrath (Ephesians 2:3).
In many nations of the earth, if you tell someone Jesus is God, you would immediately suffer persecution. The bible says all who will godly in Christ shall suffer persecution. A lot of the churches have been deceived into not preaching the gospel. That is exactly what satan wants. The enemy does not want a minister to preach on sin and the rejection of Jesus Christ, he does not want hell preached but hell exists. Many churches have reduced the gospel of Jesus Christ into a form of worldly personal development making it of none effect. But God forbid. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation to those who believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
In the bible we see that the religious leaders did not believe Jesus was the Son of God. They thought he was just a man the son of Joseph. The Jews wanted to stone him because they said he being a man makest himself equal with God. The Pharisees, saducees and chief priests etc were blind leaders leading the blind. Even after all the miracles he performed they still refused to believe. When Jesus cast out a devil the people said he cast out devils by the prince of devils. That is the way it is today. When many unsaved people see a miracle or a demon being cast out in Jesus name they do not believe, their hearts become hardened. They blaspheme the name of God therefore storing up more wrath.
The reason why we are still here is because of the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross. I thank God for his grace and patience. God is love and mercy, which is why we have Jesus but we cannot stay a Godless society and think it is okay. God is the same yesterday today and forever more and is not pleased with the world. Now God is not out to kill anybody, the devil is. He does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked, the devil does. The Lord does hate sin so he went to the cross and died over it in an effort that humanity would have a chance to come back to him. God is Holy and desires holiness. If the world continue to stay in those sins that the Lord died for and refuse to accept Jesus after hearing and knowing the truth then what do you think God will do at judgment day?
Although we as Christians are not perfect, we must ask the Lord to forgive us of any sin known and unknown daily. Jesus Christ was not given to us to live like the old man who was after sin but be transformed into the new man who is after righteousness. I believe that the hurricanes, tornadoes etc are a result of sin and the world is coming to an end as Jesus Mentioned in St. Matthew 24. As long as the world continues to reject Jesus Christ as Lord they will remain children of wrath. Amen.
