Easter is fast approaching in which we remember when Jesus Christ layed down his life to save a lost humanity. Sadly the lost humanity are just not that interested. Jesus said the general atmosphere around his second coming would be "As in the days of Noah." People were eating, drinking and marrying, carrying on as normal whilst Noah followed Gods instructions to secure his salvation and that of his family. Suddenly Gods wrath was poured out, and the closed minds reasoned no more. Noah was prepared, all those who drowned just couldn't see their need and were destroyed. Worse than that they mocked Noah, viewing him as foolish. Scripture teaches that "Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't
believe" 2Corinthians 4:4. Belief is the key. The simple act of believing opens the mind to the truth about us and God. The greatest battle was not World War1 or even World War2, the greatest battle being fought is the battle for the human mind. The mind must be enlightened before salvation can follow. God will not and does not bypass the human mind. Satans knows this so he bombards the lost with thoughts and images. He has his many helpers. They work in science and the media, peddling lies and half-thruths all to fuel the mockers. We do not know how many more Easters the world will enjoy or how many more opportunities there will be to enter into safety. But we can know this for sure, the door will not be shut until the very last one to be saved has walked safely through the door. Let us leave the last word to the greatest mind who ever lived, Jesus of Nazareth "I am the door; whoever enters in through me will be saved" John 10:7.
