As I have stated in the past,,, I grew up on a small farm- Living and growing up on a farm, I was around all kinds of equipment from an early age,,, tractors, trucks, mowers, combines, rototillers,,,, all types of equipment- One thing you learn early about all this equipment with an engine,,, they have to have oil to keep operating- Well I have burnt up a couple engines in my time because I didn’t check the oil- Now why would I do that, knowing what I knew ,,,, well there are a number of reasons !!!
1- Didn’t have the time and need to get or keep going !!!
2- This engine doesn’t need oil !!!
3- It is someone else’s engine and don’t want to make them uncomfortable telling them to check the oil !!
4- Pretend or not believe an engine has to have oil to keep running!!!
5- It is someone’s else’s responsibility to check the oil !!!
6- I will do it tomorrow and tomorrow becomes today so I can wait for another tomorrow !!!
7- It will all be okay !!!
Well, any one of these excuses or “head in the sand” belief’s will, eventually land at the same outcome- The engine will run out of oil, Heat-up, Freeze-up and Quit !!! At this point you have no choice but to put in oil,,, after you have spent time and money to repair the damage to the engine !!!
Now,,, lets apply these same principles to your chose for eternity- As you know I believe/know there is a Heaven and Hell- We are all going to spend our eternity in one of them depending on our choice in this life- You can accept Jesus’s path to salvation and wake up in heaven after your engine stops or you can spend eternity in separation and torment from God suffering in Hell- Yup we all hate to think about that- Okay,,, lets apply the oil, no oil reasoning to this !!!
1- Don’t have the time to think about it right now,, no decision before your engine stops,,, No Heaven
2- I really don’t need to make a decision because all is good with me,,, no decision, no acceptance,, No Heaven
3- I don’t want to make any of the poeple around me uncomfortable because they don’t believe that it is necessary,, no decision, no acceptance,,, No Heaven
4- I don’t believe in this stuff/teaching so it does not effect me,,, no decision, no acceptance,,, No Heaven
5- It is someone else’s responsibility to prove to me that this is true,,, no decision, no acceptance,,, No Heaven
6- I will think about it tomorrow or tomorrow after tomorrow- I am young and have lots of time to deal with this,, no decision,, no acceptance,,, No Heaven
7- It will all be Okay,, no decision,, no acceptance,,, No Heaven
So there you have it- Your life/engine is going to end/stop one of these days- None of us get out of that- The HUGE DIFFERENCE between our life/engine ending and the equipment engine quitting is ,, after you die there is no going back to make the decision- It is a done deal and if you have not accepted and consciously asked for forgiveness to Jesus Christ you will be in Hell- Believe it or not,,, It is a done deal !!!
Right now,,, fill your life/engine with the holy oil of Jesus Christ and stop worrying about whether your engine needs oil- After your acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart and life,,, Heaven is a, “for sure”, Done Deal !!!!
