HE BOASTED AND BOWED TO DEATH
By DIGC16 December 2020
No one is big enough to escape the inevitable appointment.
SCRIPTURE: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: No one is big enough to escape the inevitable appointment.
Voltaire was a French man who stood on the top of his house one day boastfully declared that after 100 years, the Bible would be a forgotten and unknown Book. The Bible would be an out-dated piece of antiquity that will not be used by anybody but will found only in some dusty museums and in remotely disconnected parts of the world (Paraphrased).
But one day, he succumbed to the appointment of death. He died a miserable death. As he was about to die, the nurse that stood by him heard him screaming of the hell fire he was going.
Today, the same house he stood upon and boasted that the Bible would become out-dated, became the headquarters of World Bible Society where Bibles are sent to the world, 100 years after. He died and passed over to eternity because no one is too big or too arrogant to escape the appointment with death. No one is big enough to escape the inevitable appointment.
Beloved, it is appointed unto men once to die and after that, judgement follows (Hebrews 9:27).
Therefore, live your life to please your Maker before the curtain of time is drawn, and the dimensions of eternity are open.
Remember this: There is no one big enough to escape the inevitable appointment.
- Refuse to live carelessly on earth.
- Live your life to please your Maker before the curtain of time is drawn.
PRAYER: I thank You Lord for reminding me again about the inevitable appointment with death. Help me to adjust my ways and live right so I can end in eternity with You when it is time, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Beloved, in order not to end in a regrettable eternity in everlasting flames and torment, you must answer the following questions with all sincerity and accuracy: Who are you living for? Who controls your life? Who directs your actions and lifestyle? Is it self, the world or Christ? Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
