2 Chronicles 36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.
“Till there was no remedy!” What a frightening statement. To think there is no remedy for your actions with God. Yet people still today live their lives as if they can just get right with God and come to Him whenever they feel like it. “Free will” tells us that we have the freedom of choice. However, people misunderstand even their “free will.”
• You do have the freedom to choose heaven or hell.
• You have the choice of freedom, or a life bound in sin.
• You may choose freely to follow Jesus or the devil.
You have that freedom, RIGHT NOW! However, God has never said He would allow you to thumb your nose at Him forever and still have all that freedom.
You can only be saved if the Holy Spirit draws you to the Lord. Fortunately for us, He is in the business of drawing everyone to Himself. Sadly though, you might wait too long thinking, it is all up to me, and at any time I want, I can be saved. The truth of the matter my friend, it is all up to God, not you. The Bible teaches that everyone is called to redemption. It teaches God is patient, kind, and loving. Then again, it also teaches there comes a time when you can harden your heart and never desire to receive Him as Saviour. Meaning there may come a time when there may be NO REMEDY for your sin.
The good news is this, if you are not already saved and the idea of it being too late upsets and concerns you, then you have not reached the NO REMEDY point as of yet. In fact, if you are concerned, this is evidence God is still calling you right now. Why put it off any longer. Why wait until God might say, “there was no remedy” for you? Accept Him today.
