Crying For Lost Souls [Guest Article]

Jesus Christ commanded: "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." Matthew 22:38  If we love someone, we will pray for them, cry for them, and care about their soul.

If you are a True Christian, this post is for you. Do you love the members of your family? Do you love the lost souls? If yes, what are you doing for them? Do you preach the Gospel to them and pray for them? If not, why?

I am very sure that you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior when a Christian preached the Gospel to you, so, why can you not do the same thing for your family, friends, and other people? Do you want to go to Heaven and watch the lost souls (even some of your family) go to Hell? Is this love for your family and your neighbour?

If you are a True Christian, and you love your family and your neighbour, prove it and pray for them, preach the True Gospel to them and CRY FOR THEM.

Cry to God for your family, because you love your family and want them to find and receive the gift of Salvation.
Cry to God for your neighbour, because you love your neighbour and want that they become saved from their sins.

When you pray, preach the Gospel, or even cry for the people of this world, it shows that you love them, you care about them and you wish them to be well - Spiritually well. If you do nothing for people, then you do not wish them Spiritual wellness, you do not care about them, and you also do not love them.  So, do you really love your family?  Do you really love your friends?  Do you really care about people and love them?

When you love people, you want them to join you in your Heavenly Home one day and you will do everything to help guide them and lead them to Heaven. Show your love for people, because, even Satan and his demons "love" people. Satan "loves" people so much, that he does everything that he possibly can to lead them away from Truth and into Hell where they can "live" with him for all eternity.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" - 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)

If you don't cry for people and if you do nothing for them now, you will cry so much when some of these people die without salvation.  You will be sure that they are in Hell and you will not be able to do anything for them because it will be too late. Do you want this to happen?

If you do not know what you can do or how you can preach, read more of the Bible, pray and cry for the lost souls, seek God and ask Him what you can do for the lost souls and ask God to use you to save your family and others who need Salvation.

If you think that you do not need to preach to your family, think again.  You may think that your relatives are all very good people (even though they are not Christians) and will not end up in Hell, but the Bible tells a different story.  Simply being "good" does not keep us out of Hell.  Simply being "good" does not give us a free pass into Heaven.  I will tell you this.... no matter how good they may seem, there does not exist "good people", because God is the Only One who is Good and all men/women are evil: "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? {there is} none good but one, {that is}, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. Mathew 19:16,17". "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat {is} an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps {is} under their lips: Whose mouth {is} full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet {are} swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery {are} in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes. Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. {guilty...: or, subject to the judgment of God} 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. Romans 3:10-20".

All people are evil and deserve to go to Hell, and everyone is guilty before God.  But, before you say that it is unjust to say this, because there are many evil people who have done atrocities, such as Adolph Hitler, I will say to you that Adolph Hitler is in Hell now not because he did atrocities, such as killing millions of innocent people. He is in Hell now because he did not repent and did not accept Jesus Christ as his Savior: "There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? {sinners: or, debtors} I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. He spake also this parable; A certain {man} had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung {it}: And if it bear fruit, {well}: and if not, {then} after that thou shalt cut it down." - Luke 13:1-9"

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. {reproved: or, discovered} But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." - John 3:16-21

Until people come to Christ, repent of their evil ways, are cleansed, and begin walking in the Light - we are all immoral beings, and are even equal with Hitler, Pilate, and other historical evil men like them.

Even though we are sinful beings and deserve eternal condemnation, God chose to send Jesus Christ to die in our place and pay the debt for our sins. Jesus Christ rose again for our justification (Romans 5): "Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to Him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. Romans 4:23-25".

Salvation is free and God gave this gift by grace. You just repent from your sins, ask God for forgiveness, let Him cleanse you, and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, and He forgives you, sets you on a new moral path, and gives you Eternal Life. When God saves us, He cleans us by the blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 9:22 and Romans 3:24-26), we will be made totally clean and holy, as if we did not commit any sin or evil/bad thing.  He will erase it all.  But remember: we need to continue on this clean and holy pathway and it will lead us directly to Heaven - because in Heaven there will not be any evil people (Revelation 21:8): "Blessed {are} they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city (Heaven). For without {are} dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. Revelation 22:14-15".

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11"

If you do not want to accept the Salvation that God offers you, you have this right, but, you will go to the same place where Adolph Hitler, all Nazis, all murderers, all rapists, all abusers of children, all kinds of criminals, and evil people will go: to HELL.

If you do not want to go in a prison where all kinds of criminals and murders are incarcerated, why would you want to go to HELL?
