Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Many people in the world today have what we call a backup plan an alternative option, a substitute plan to put into play if the original plan doesn't work out the way they thought it would. Having a back up plan is a good idea but when it comes to your eternal salvation, it's a matter of life and death. Many people of the world come from various cultures and different beliefs and religions. Most people in the world today just follow the leader and believe what they are told, they don't take the time to search out a matter and to seek out the truth.

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

When we choose to follow the leader and tradition that are taught we are surrendering to bondage and are lead into captivity by our own ignorance of the truth.

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life! There is no other way! Not by any other gods, not by works, and certainly not by being a good person.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

I was having a conversation with a person recently about a difficult situation in their life, and they told me when they were finished with this condition that they were going to turn to the Lord.

I told that person today is the day to choose Jesus Christ. Now is the time to repent and to get right with God. The time for indecision is over, this world is under judgment.

Psalm 1:1-6

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

I've heard people say many times when the time is right for me then I will get saved. They say I'm not ready.

The world loves the things of the world and desires them above the things of righteousness. The addiction to the lust of the flesh has consumed many in their thoughts and their desires for material gain has caused them to be blind to the things of God.

1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The Word of God gives us examples of many people in the past who have put God on the shelve and have ventured there own way. When we put Jesus Christ as a Cyclical Savior we are choosing death over life every time and eventually that secondary option will not be there for us to choose.

The Lord God was grieved by mankind and had chosen to destroy the whole earth for the sin that had reached his throne.

2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Noah was a preacher of righteousness who warned the people of what was to come, but his warnings were ignored and probably mocked and scorned. Many probably had the response of most people today, “I'll get right if when I'm ready, when the time is right for me. In all honesty when there is no alternative.

Genesis 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

The time had run out and the door was shut by God. The warning was given and ignored by the people and the option for escape was eliminated.

Genesis 7:21-23

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

Noah and his family spent a long time building the ark and the people were warned of the judgment to come but refused to repent and choose life over the world.

Genesis 18:20-22

20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.

22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

There were three men that came and spoke with Abraham, two angels and then the Lord. God always tells His people and gives them warning of a coming judgment.

Genesis 19:12-14

12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.

14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

The warnings that have been given by God's people have always been scorned , mocked and ignored. Although many do take notice and pay attention but they leave off repentance as a secondary option as backup plan if things really do get bad. This decision comes about as alack of faith of the people believing in the things of God.

Genesis 19:15-16

15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

The Bible says that Lot lingered, he was on the fence, like many people today waiting around to make the decision that they know is right but refuse to break ties with the things of the world and it will be the weight of the world will consume you and sink you down into destruction.

Genesis 19:17-22

17 ¶ And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:

19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

We are always looking to make excuses for the reasons why we cannot do the things commanded by the Lord. We want a Cyclical Savior, an alternative Jesus who will condone our worldly desires. These angels of the Lord were showing Lot and his family mercy but he continued to ask for an alternative.

Genesis 19:24-26

24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

26 ¶ But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Looking back to the things that are forbidden by God will only bring destruction spiritually and physically. We will have setbacks in our Christian walk but must always be quick to repent and stay on the straight and narrow road. The things of this world will cause many to continue to deny Jesus Christ and only keep Him as a secondary option in case of an emergency. A Cyclical Savior will not and cannot save you in the hour of your death if you choose to put Him on a shelf.

This Story of the Prodigal son is a parable given by Jesus Christ to show us the mercy of God. We have an option to come back or to come to for the first time to Jesus Christ through repentance and by excepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior not a cyclical Saviour, not an alternative option.

The option for choosing Jesus Christ will soon come to a close just like in Noah's time.

You can no longer afford to remain in sin and undecided as to who you will follow. Now is the time now is the day to choose Jesus Christ. Tomorrow may not come.
