Is It Time To Seek The LORD?
A message that changed a sinner's life, who died a saint shortly after hearing this message. He recounted this message at the gate of heaven after his death as the Angels of GOD brought him there.
As you will read this message now, I pray that the saving grace of JESUS CHRIST be multiplied unto you, and save your soul from the damnation of hell fire in JESUS name. Amen.

"You are safe," the saint replied, "safe at home. Can you repeat any of the sermon to us?"
"Indeed I can; every word of it. Hosea 10:12. Is it time to seek the Lord? At 5 a.m. when the first gleams of the morning appear, you ask, 'Is it time to seek the Lord?' A voice from heaven whispers, 'They that seek Me early shall find Me.' At 7 a.m. again you ask, 'Is it now time to seek the Lord?' A voice from the throne replies: 'Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth.' Oh, what a beautiful Light is circling round the brow and becoming a center of joy within the character of that child of God who has early learned to lisp the name of Jesus!
Again at 9 a.m. the bell calls and you ask, 'Is it time to seek the Lord?' Conscience trembles and says, 'I have passed many an open door of grace already and the sins of my youth are multiplied.' As you listen to the voice you hear it saying, 'Now is the accepted time: now is the day of salvation.' High noon has now come to many a soul here. The most important period of life has already past or is now upon you. The golden opportunities of childhood and youth will return to you no more. Yet you say with an indifferent air, 'Is it time for me to seek the Lord?' Satan now begins to whisper, 'Your heart is hard, you cannot easily repent with all your cares upon you.'
"Turn your eyes upward and listen", the preacher said, "as you say, 'what must I do to be saved?' Everything within you has been saying, 'Repent, freon.' Now the echo comes back from heaven as though sounded with the trump of God: "Repent ye and believe the gospel. Come unto me and I will give you rest. In the day that ye seek me with all your heart I will be found of you.'
"Consider your situation as it I sin God's sight. Think you of he littleness of time that is left you for so great a preparation. Think you of your accountability to God. You will soon stand before Him, and render an impartial account of your stewardship. Think you of your reply to Him who sitteth upon the throne when He shall say, 'Friend, how comest thou in hither not having on a wedding garment?' (Matthew 22:12) Oh, think you of your feelings when you will look this way and that, to find yourself so confounded that you are speechless, as you call back the days when showers of grace from heaven fell so often upon and your heart yielded no fruit of righteousness in return. Think of the barren fig tree that stood so many years in the vineyard, having been digged about and watered so long without any fruit; that when mercy shall cry, 'cut it down,' anticipate your sorrow and think what your feelings will be.
"Think deeply of the weeds which have been growing in your heart so long and scattering their seed in other soil around you. Think of the ripening harvest from your sowing, and that "whatsoever Amanda soweth that shall he also reap.' Think of the rich man in torment, remembering good only to lighten his sorrow, knowing it might have been otherwise with his soul, but now being tormented he could see 'Lazarus afar off in Abraham's bosom.'
"As these considerations are before you, haste with all speed to Him who alone is able to save you. Oh, do not olive longer as if there were neither a bed of death nor a bar of judgment. Be wise; look your danger in the face. Anticipate the day when you shall behold a God Iain judgment and a world in flames; and flee to your God from the wrath to come."
May it not be too LATE for you today in JESUS name. Amen
