YOU ARE INEXCUSABLE

 By Atif Himadeh

Thou art inexcusable” God says to you. As the Apostle Paul writes in his Epistle to the Romans 2: 1-3, “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

He, who commits a sin, when standing before God, cannot give an excuse because of the already committed sin. As a result God will send him to hell. “For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law” Romans 2: 12. Even if you failed to know God’s Commandments and you broke one of them you will still perish. So “without law shall also perish without law” And he who knew the commandments and broke only one of them shall be judged by them. “And as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law” God says in James 2: 10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” If you break only one of them you will be guilty of all.

 

As a result, you will start giving excuses before God saying, “O God I did not know!”  But God will tell you, “Thou art inexcusable, O man” You might even tell Him that you are weak and Satan has tempted you. But He will still tell you, “Thou art inexcusable, O man” You might also say, “I will do well from now on. So, please, God, forgive me this sin.” He will still tell you, “Thou art inexcusable, O man”. Since you have kept all the commandments and broke just one of them, you have become guilty of all.

 

You might say, “O Lord, you are unjust.”  His response will be, “I am just and holy. My holiness requires Me that I should not accept sin in any form.” He also says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6: 23.  You will cry to the Lord and say, “O Lord, I am better than my neighbor. He is a notorious sinner but I am not.” God will say to you, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one….They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one”  Romans 3: 10, 12.

 

If you trust in your good deeds to get to heaven, you are lost indeed. Because God says in Romans 3: 20, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” You might cry to God and say, “O God, You are merciful. Please forgive my sins and accept me in heaven. His response will be, “Yes I am a merciful and forgiving God. But I Am Holy and Just and severely punishes sin. Therefore, I will not allow sinners into heaven.” You will then cry, as in Acts 16: 30 “What must I do to be saved?” God will tell you, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved...” Acts 16: 31

 

God knows that, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3: 23. All people deserve hell based upon their works. The Holy, Just, Merciful and Forgiving God wants to save mankind and He diligently searched for someone among the people, prophets and apostles and found no righteous man, not even one. As a result, God was incarnated in a human form and made redemption for Man.  As the Bible says in Isaiah 59: 16, “And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.” “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5: 21

 

Jesus Christ, God incarnate, knew no sin and kept the Law (commandments) and broke none of them. He challenged more than once the people and the Scribes by saying, “Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?” John 8:46 No man was able to testify that Christ committed one sin. “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4: 14-15.

The Bible has recorded at least one sin for each and every prophet and apostle. But Jesus committed not even one sin. Therefore, He Himself made our redemption and died on the cross and shed His blood for the remission of our sins. “For he hath made him (the Lord Jesus, God in flesh) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” II Cor:5:21  This means that we receive righteousness through faith in Christ. “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.” Romans 3: 21-25.

If you desire to go to heaven, you should become righteous as if you never committed sin. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to redeem you, to forgive your sins and to rescue you from Hell. Abraham offered a lamb for his son. This was a symbol of the Lord Jesus Christ as the redeeming lamb for the sake of humanity. John the Baptist, following the baptism of the Lord Jesus, saw the Holy Spirit descending on Him in a form of a dove. About the Lord Jesus Christ, he said, “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1: 29. John the Baptist is considered the greatest prophet as the Lord Jesus referred to him in Matthew 11: 11, “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist” John said about Jesus in John 1: 29, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” Therefore, the Lord Jesus is the redeeming lamb for the whole world. He said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11: 28.

 

The Lord Jesus is able to take away the curse of our sins. He is the One who carried our iniquities upon Himself through His death on the cross for the remission of our sins. All who believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. He is the one who said in John 11: 25-26, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”

 

Come to Jesus Christ and believe in Him so that you will not perish but have instead everlasting life. You are, therefore, with no excuse if you go on sinning and continue rejecting to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who descended from His heavenly throne for His love for you; who came to our world to redeem you and forgive your sins, in particular, on the cross so that you may not perish. You are with no excuse if you reject the Holy, Merciful, and Forgiving God who loved you and redeemed you and died for you.

 

Dear reader, do not reject His forgiveness, love, mercy and He shed his blood on the cross to save you from the clutches of Satan. Come to Him before it is too late and believe in Him in your heart and confess in Him with your mouth. Then pray this prayer:

O Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner. Wash me with your blood that you shed on the cross. Come dwell in my heart and grant me eternal life. I ask this in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”

If you have received salvation through the blood of Christ and He has forgiven you your sins and received eternal life, please, write to us:
