Most of us, after learning a sad and painful truth, sometimes regret ever knowing about it so we can return to the time before we knew about it. A child coming clean about breaking your favorite knick-knack, that time before opening the door to discover your new puppy had torn your house apart, etc.
However, there are repercussions in turning your back on more important truths. Not wanting to accept that one day we all will face judgment can be thwarted by our brains and simply ignored, but it doesn't make the judgment go away just because you did. Another example is the thought of acceptance of unvetted refugees into our country compromising our safety for dangerous truths about terrorism under the guise of kindness. In my humble opinion, there are alternative ways to rectify this world problem while keeping our borders safe, but I digress.
False sense of security is also a negative factor in shunning important truths. We go on about our lives impervious to the fact that our lives are fragile and we have no idea when it will end. Sometimes, we do know but push it to the back burner as if to believe that we are immune to death.
But what does happen if we are faced with death? Are we aware and ready to face our Maker? Most of you are not ready, some even shrug it off.
In Ezekiel 18:20, "The soul who sins shall die." By death here it means not a physical death but a spiritual one. A dead spirit is one who does not join the glory of God in Paradise... Eternally. Most people don't even try to understand the word eternal, but eternal means never ending, aka Groundhog Day. If we do not inform ourselves about eternity, there will be a false sense of security because one has to really make an effort in this life through understanding of the Word in order to fully grasp the meaning of such gift from God. What feels right to humans may not be what God requires for us to achieve life everlasting. Natural humans cannot possibly comprehend the things of God UNLESS, we are born again. And being born again does not mean a physical birth but a spiritual birth if, and only after, we have sincerely received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
