LSD: Lust, Sin, Death
“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.” - (JN.19:30).
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” - (Jam.1:15).
LSD stands for: Dextro Lysergic Acid. It is a man made drug and is among the most potent and most lethal of the dangerous drugs. It is a brain eater. LSD is so potent that a single ounce can give 300,000 doses. It is 100 times more powerful than cocaine or peyote. A pin point of LSD is enough to blast a user’s mind off to an uncertain journey. LSD can destroy your mind and sometimes your body.
But the most dangerous LSD of all is found in the Bible and it has killed everyone ever born on earth except Enoch and Elijah. It stands for Lust - Sin – Death -“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” - (Jam.1:15). It is seen most clearly with the sin of fornication. A person lusts sexually after someone who is not your husband or wife and when the lust is conceived it brings forth the sin of fornication (and many times a baby is conceived) and then sin when their life is finished, brings forth death. Both physical death and eternal death in the lake of fire. “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” - (Rev.20:14,15).
God told Adam - “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” - (Gen.2:17). And so - “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” - (Rom.5:12). Man’s lust and sin has killed billions of people during the last 6000 years. And is about to kill six billion at one time in a nuclear Armageddon. Nuclear scientists in Los Alamos (the cottonwood tree) lusted after the same forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge as Adam and Eve did, and learned to split the atom and make an atom bomb and then H- bombs which are a thousand more powerful. We now await the second coming of Christ when the world will end with a nuclear holocaust. Yes, lust - sin - death - the LSD of God’s Word of truth.
When the Lord Jesus was dying on the cross for our sins, He said “it is finished.” His death paid the price for our salvation from our LSD - our lust - sin - and death, and offers us eternal life. These were the greatest words ever spoken on earth. He was saying, “I have completed every detail of redemption. I have accomplished that for which I came into the world. I have fulfilled every jot and tittle of the law and the prophets. I have satisfied the righteousness, the holiness, and the purity of God. I have FINISHED redemption’s plan.” It was spoken by the greatest person who ever lived. The only person in heaven, or on earth, who could have finished the work that had to be finished if God were to be just and yet justify the ungodly. Jesus came to earth on a singular mission - to solve man’s greatest problem - sin and the punishment of sin which is death. He came to pay the sin-debt, to make atonement for our soul. The cross of Christ was a divine imperative: no cross, no salvation for us sinners. When Jesus cried out “it is finished,” He finished our LSD problem - “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” It is finished - thank you Lord Jesus. >
Thank you Lord, for giving to me,
Thy great salvation, so rich and free.
Jesus said “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” - (Jn.4:34). It is written “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” - (Heb.12:2). Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith, and you will be saved from hell and have forgiveness of sins and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. After you’re saved, Christ will put you in His ‘finishing school’ where you will grow in godliness and the knowledge of the Lord. So you will ‘finish the course’ God has set for you and you can hit the ‘finish line’ strong for the Lord. We are in the final stage and the finish of world history and soon the rapture will take place. O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of God abides upon you and God finishes you off in the second death.
