And Jesus said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:2-5)
Do you suppose those who died in tornadoes hurricanes, airplane crashes, or war were greater sinners than those who lived?
Jesus said: “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
Jesus, of course, was talking about perishing eternally. Unless we repent, we face condemnation and hell.
The Lord does not want us to perish, but for all to come to repentance.
The Lord is … patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
We must repent and believe When we do, we won’t perish but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that He gave He only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
There are an enormous number of warnings in the Bible. God blesses but He also curses. God is both Savior and Judge.
God’s word tells us how to escape God’s wrath. He tells us how to have eternal life.
We must repent. We must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. When we do, we receive Christ and Lord and Savior and have eternal life.
We shouldn’t keep this life-saving truth to ourselves. Tell others!
