1 Corinthians 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
Paul writes, “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema…” Here Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, pictures a day when the Lord Jesus will bring judgment on a rebellious world.
Presently, Christ is “…long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”(2 Peter 3:9) Eventually however, and perhaps very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ will run out patience. The Bible says, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:…” (2 Thessalonians 1:8)
Lord Jesus, may those who have not received you as Savior do so soon before it is too late.
