Raise The Alarm!

A. W. Pink (1886-1952)What is needed today is a Scriptural setting forth of the character of God; His absolute sovereignty, His ineffable holiness, His inflexible justice, His unchanging veracity. What is needed today is a scriptural setting forth of the condition of the natural man; his total depravity, his spiritual insensibility, his inveterate hostility to God, the fact that he is “condemned already” and that the wrath of a sin-hating God is even now abiding upon him – the alarming danger in which sinners are – the indescribably awful doom which awaits them, the fact that if they follow only a little further their present course they shall most certainly suffer the due reward of their iniquities – a setting forth of the nature of that punishment which awaits the lost – the awfulness of it, the hopelessness of it, the un-endurableness of it, the endlessness of it. It is because of these convictions that, by pen as well as by voice, we are seeking to raise the alarm.

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

    Another awesome post Brother Coleman. Indeed, people need to be taking God a lot more seriously instead of believing He’s just as casual as their every day friend. We are His servants; and in actuality, the translators translated it as servants from the original Greek because it sounded less offensive. The actual Greek word for servant is translated slave. So, in truth, we are either a “slave” to sin, or a “slave” to Adonai. We can only be one or the other. And if people are offended by this, I can’t help it. The fact is, those of us who have ever lived and who will ever live are only here because God allowed us to be. Every day when we wake up in the morning, we only wake up because God allowed our hearts to continue beating. It is by Him only in which every breath is inhaled and exhaled into and out of our lungs. Who are we? We are smaller than the ants are to us in the presence of God..we are no bigger than an atom…yet, He knows precisely the number of each hair upon each one of our heads and loves us. I am a slave of God and proud of it…and guess what? My God is a most fair, wonderful, and loving master! The other master is wicked, cruel, and evil. Whom shall I serve? As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord! Amen!

    Another short but powerful post by Brother Coleman. I encourage everyone to read this and to ponder God’s divine sovereignty. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord!

    Lyn,

    Thank you for your comments. They are accurate, humbling and convicting.

    On my very best day of obedience to my Lord, on the day that I preach the very best sermon He will ever give me, on the day that I stoop the lowest to minister to a brother, I will have only done my duty and will remain an unprofitable servant. Luke 17:10

    God bless.

      I am so happy to find another part of my family who knows God’s truth to the “T” The popular message of the day is the sugar-coated message that Jesus is our friend, and we can keep on sinning because we’re always forgiven. But ah, we are only forgiven when we repent…repenting is not just saying we are sorry and doing it again and again..repenting is conviction, confession, asking forgiveness, and ceasing the sin. That doesn’t mean we don’t make mistakes; rather, it means we don’t continue living in it, which is blatant and outright disobedience to God. The Old Testament still exists, and we are still to take heed to its message…as Jesus was Jewish and abided by it also, saying, “If you love me, keep My commandments.” My message is not a popular one people want to hear. The question isn’t, “can one lose their salvation?” The message clearly is, “were you saved to begin with?” When we are truly saved, their is a cutting away of the heart…we are to carry our cross. We fall in love with the Lord and no longer desire “in our spirit” to sin. We crucify the flesh with its lustful desires. We desire first and foremost to please Him and to serve Him. To love Him is to serve Him with our Whole heart; any less than that is lukewarm. God bless you!

      The truth for all of us, and let us not forget that it is Our Lord only who is worthy of all our praise and worship.
