God Does Not Want Any Of His Children To Perish

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. [11] For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. [12] How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? [13] And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep , than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. [14] Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:10-14.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17 KJV

Meditate : 2 Peter 3:9 KJV
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Jesus is not a liar and he will never fail. Don’t be deceive by the ignorant that say he is not coming; He is coming, but he wants people to repent of their sins; he wants people to turn to God before he comes. The next verse, 2 Peter 3:10 – “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” So repent. God doesn’t want you to perish.

CENTRE TRUTH : As a child of God, it is God’s desire that you are saved.
There are some things you should know about the coming of Christ and the kingdom of God. They are:

  1. God is patiently waiting for sinners to repent, but he will not wait forever: 2 Peter 3:9 KJV
    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    Ezekiel 18:23 KJV
    Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God : and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
    Ezekiel 33:11; 14 – 16 KJV
    Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God , I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? ;
    [14] Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; [15] If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. [16] None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
  2. The kingdom of God is wide open for those who believe: John 3:16 KJV
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    1 Thessalonians 2:4 KJV
    But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
    Luke 12:32 KJV
    Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
    Mark 1:15 KJV
    And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
    John 1:12 KJV
    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
    John 14:6 KJV
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
  3. Some categories that would eventually perish are Satan and his angels, the ungodly and all unrepentant sinners. Galatians 5:19-21 KJV
    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these ; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, [20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, [21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Every born again child of God should consistently warn sinners of the impending danger awaiting them. How often do you tell people about salvation? You call yourself a child of God; do you know where you stand? Are you really born again or still a sinner? Give your life to Jesus now. Revelation 3:20-22 KJV
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. [21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. [22] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
