John 16:8-9 And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in me. (NLT)

The Holy Spirit came to earth after Jesus ascended into heaven. He has been here ever since and He is speaking to the saved and unsaved about their sin. Nobody is immune from being affected by the leading or the voice from the Holy Spirit who is trying to reveal the truth of the gospel to all people.they know 2

 

 
Years ago there was a person who was really mean to me. This person spread lies about me and tried to get other people to hate me. One day some years later after I continued to witness to them they said that they knew they were being mean to me and that they heard God tell them that. That was the Holy Spirits voice.

 

 
The other day I watched a one hour documentary about woman in the lesbian life style in the bible belt of Texas. I wanted to understand what their feelings were about their life style. Many of them said they have really struggled with being a lesbian especially with their family and friends. Many of them had contemplated suicide at some point in their lives. I feel there is inner turmoil with what they know about God and how they live their lives.

 

 
Many people who are not following what God’s plan is for humanity are going to feel uncomfortable because the Holy Spirit is trying to get people to turn from sin and be holy because God is holy. God’s love for humanity is individually reaching out to each soul and convicting each person’s heart, mind and spirit to live righteously so that they can avoid the coming judgment.

In the Old Testament people had to be taught how to live right. They were to be taught about God through their parents, spiritual leaders and the prophets. They acted out a lot and many horrific things happened to them as a result. After the Holy Spirit came to earth in the New Testament, things changed dramatically. The Holy Spirit convicts everyone of sin. So everyone either accepted the message of salvation or they rejected it.

 
So here we come along and try to share the gospel like Jesus told us to do and many times we are met with displeasure from the person we are trying to share the gospel with.

Immediately after a person dies is the judgment. Either you’re going to go straight to heaven or you will go straight to hell. Why? Because you had all the years you lived to answer the Holy Spirit when He tried to show you your sins and get you to repent and you refused. After your body ceases to function you soul goes into the spirit world and you will know for sure whether God is real. By then it will be too late if you made the wrong decision.
People know in their heart of hearts that all is not right in their soul. People really do sense this. They have no real peace. God gave us a conscience so we have awareness of our own behavior. Then on top of all that…the devil is taking advantage of a person’s vulnerability for sinning.
(With all the media out there now…people do know about Jesus and Christianity.)

We Christians need to still get out there and be a light in this dark world and shine the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ no matter what the cost is to us personally. We must be bold and fearless! We can win souls for the kingdom and the devil and demons CANNOT stop us!!! This is a fact!
When I hear this scripture I tremble for the unsaved: Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, (Hebrews 9:27) Oh my God! I don’t want this for people!!! My family…my friends…my neighbors…my co-works…some of my church members…….
Be bold, be brave…go get them and snatch them from the gates of hell!
