100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #28 | with Daniel Whyte III
TEXT — 2 Corinthians 6:1-2: “We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”
Have you signed a contract with the devil that you will never be saved? Have you signed an agreement in which you faithfully and solemnly promised Satan that you would spend eternity in hell? Did you solemnly promise never to be saved?
CERTAINLY YOU DID NOT!
The devil has never asked any person to sign such an agreement. He will never ask a sinner to sign a contract never to be saved, or to promise to spend eternity in hell. Satan is too wise, too shrewd, too cunning, to do such a thing. He is a deceiver—but he is no fool. He is the destroyer, but he is not stupid!
Satan is subtle and extremely wise. He can appear in many forms, but he most frequently appears as “an angel light”. It is true that he walks about “as a roaring lion…seeking whom he may devour”; but he will take any form and use any method to lead a soul to hell! He never asks anyone to promise never to be saved. All he wants is—
ONE DAY AT A TIME
Satan is content with one moment, one second, at a time, because life is so brief, it is compared to vapor or steam as it pours from the teakettle, or the early morning fog, which appears for a little moment and then vanishes. James 4:13-14 reads, “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
The devil knows that if he can get you to put off salvation one day at a time, if he can get you to ignore one warning at a time, he will eventually claim you as his victim and will damn your soul in the lake of fire and brimstone!
I am now giving you a message of WARNING concerning sin, death, judgment, and damnation, and in this message you will also be given the plan of salvation.
