Are you prepared to stand before God ?


Are You Prepared to Stand Before a Holy God ?
Rom 14:10b-12 (TLB) . Remember, each of us will stand personally before the Judgment Seat of God. {11} For it is written, "As I live," says the Lord, "every knee shall bow to me and every tongue confess to God." {12} Yes, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

Are You Prepared for the Judgement of your Sin ? 
Rom 2:16 (TLB) The day will surely come when at God's command Jesus Christ will judge the secret lives of everyone, their inmost thoughts and motives; this is all part of God's great plan, which I proclaim.

Isa 59:1-3 (TLB) Listen now! The Lord isn't too weak to save you. And he isn't getting deaf! He can hear you when you call! {2} But the trouble is that your sins have cut you off from God. Because of sin he has turned his face away from you and will not listen anymore. {3} For your hands are those of murderers and your fingers are filthy with sin. You lie and grumble and oppose the good.

Isa 59:9-10 (TLB) It is because of all this evil that you aren't finding God's blessings; that's why he doesn't punish those who injure you. No wonder you are in darkness when you expected light. No wonder you are walking in the gloom. {10} No wonder you grope like blind men and stumble along in broad daylight, yes, even at brightest noontime, as though it were the darkest night! No wonder you are like corpses when compared with vigorous young men!

Isa 59:11-13 (TLB) You roar like hungry bears; you moan with mournful cries like doves. You look for God to keep you, but he doesn't. He has turned away. {12} For your sins keep piling up before the righteous God and testify against you. Yes, we know what sinners we are. {13} We know our disobedience; we have denied the Lord our God. We know what rebels we are and how unfair we are, for we carefully plan our lies.

Are You Prepared to Acknowledge Your Sinfulness ?
Isa 64:6-7 (TLB) We are all infected and impure with sin. When we put on our prized robes of righteousness, we find they are but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves we fade, wither and fall. And our sins, like the wind, sweep us away. {7} Yet no one calls upon Your Name, O Lord, or pleads with you for mercy. Therefore, you have turned away from us and turned us over to our sins.

Are you Prepared for the Turning Point ?
Acts 3:19 (TLB) Now change your mind and attitude to God, and turn to Him, so he can cleanse away your sins and send you wonderful times of refreshment from the presence of the Lord.

Are you Prepared to Throw Yourself on the mercy of the Lord, and accept his Forgiveness ?
Psa 25:16-18 (KJV) Turn thee unto me,O Lord, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. {17} The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. {18} Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

Heb 11:6 (TLB) You can never please God without faith, without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely look for him.

Are You Prepared to Confess your Sins to God ?
1 John 1:8-10 (TLB) If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. {9} But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. (And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.) {10} If we claim we have not sinned, we are lying and calling God a liar, for he says we have sinned.

Are You Prepared to Invite Christ into your Life ?
Rev 3:19-21 (TLB) Jesus says, I continually discipline and punish everyone I love; so I must punish you unless you turn from your indifference and become enthusiastic about the things of God. 

{20} "Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me. 

{21} I will let everyone who conquers sit beside me on my throne, just as I took my place with my Father on his throne when I had conquered.

Are You Prepared to Choose Life Instead of Death ?
Deu 30:19-20a (TLB) "I call heaven and earth to witness against you that today I have set before you life or death, blessing or curse. Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live! {20} Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey him and to cling to him, for he is your life and the length of your days.
 

Are You Prepared to Follow Christ in a New Way of Life ?
John 14:6 (TLB) Jesus told him, "I am the Way--yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the Father except by means of me.

John 8:31-32 (TLB) Jesus said to them, "You are truly my disciples if you live as I tell you to, {32} and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
 

Are You Prepared for Christ's Unconditional Invitation ?
Mat 11:28-29 (KJV) Jesus Says: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. {29} Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
