Inspired by the Days of Praise article Prepare to meet thy God!
Why is it when God warns us, Or one of his children, We say that they are judgmental?
I am pretty sure that when the same people see the Allergy warning signs on their food packaging are Quite Grateful that they know that it cannot be given to this person because they could die if they had peanuts.
Do you know how many times people have SUED companies because they didn’t provide a warning? (And they win! All similar companies immediately place warnings on their products to prevent money loss!)
So what’s our problem with Gods warnings?
There is only one thing that everyone can know for sure. Not even death and taxes are certain, for some will never die. But “every one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). (the days of praise article Prepare to meet thy God!)
The Bible States “the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17 Emphasis Added)
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” (Revelation 20:12)

But there is Hope! The only reason we have time is because God loves us and is patiently waiting for us to repent!
“ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” ( 2 Peter 3:9)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
The judgment is coming! But God hath provided a way! “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:12-13 Emphasis added).
“For the wages of sin is death,” but “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” so that “the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many” and—in the words of our text above—“whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 6:23; 5:8; 5:15; 10:13).

“Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.” (Amos 4:12)
