GUILTY AS
CHARGED!

[113.jpg]

   If a person that is guilty of a crime goes to court,
his only hope is a plea for MERCY and not justice.
   If he gets justice according to the law, there is no
hope for anything but the maximum penalty.

   Friend, if you received justice for your crime, you
would not be walking free on this earth.   Your crime
has nothing to do with the laws of the land, but with
THE LAW OF GOD.

THE WHOLE WORLD IS GUILTY.
   "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."
  ROMANS 3:19.
   God says you are guilty.   You may say, "I don't
FEEL guilty."
  God has a WRITTEN case against
you.   Trying to lead a good life and keep the
commandments won't work.   The Bible says, "For
whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet of-
fend in one point, he is guilty of all."
  JAMES 2:10.

THE CHARGE AGAINST YOU.
   "For all have sinned, and come short of the
glory of God;"
ROMANS 3:23.   YOU are a born sinner
that commits sin against God.   You are guilty of
"being a sinner" and "committing sins".   Perhaps
part of the sin in your life is ADULTERY, PRE-
MARITAL SEX, HOMOSEXUAL ACTS,
DRUGS, DRUNKENNESS, MONEY WORSHIP,
COVETOUSNESS, HATRED, STEALING, LY-
ING, ENVY, or others.   You may say, "Not me!   I'm
a pretty good and decent person."
  But God says,
"There is none righteous, no, not one:" ROMANS
3:10b.   "...there is none that doeth good, no, not
one."
  ROMANS 3:12b.

THE PENALTY.
   You already know!   It is Hell.   Jesus preached more

on Hell than He did on Heaven, because He said more
people are going there.   Jesus said Hell is a place in
the heart of this earth where there is weeping, wail-
ing, gnashing of teeth, and the fire is not quench-
ed!   The Bible says, "The wicked shall be turned
into hell..."
PSALM 9:17a.

WAIT!   YOU CAN BE JUSTIFIED.
   You cannot be justified, (just like you never have
sinned), by the Law of GOD.   You have broken it.   Its
purpose is to define sin so that you see yourself a
guilty sinner.   "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 3:20.   But
you can be justified through Jesus.   "Being justified
freely by his grace through the redemption that
is in Christ Jesus:"
ROMANS 3:24.

SOMEONE PAID FOR YOUR CRIME.
   You don't have to die and go to Hell.   The law and
justice have been satisfied by Jesus Christ, when He
died on the cross to pay for the penalty that was
against you.   "Christ hath redeemed us from the
curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for
it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on
a tree:"
GALATIANS 3:13.   He then rose from the dead to
show His power and victory over sin and death.   He
is alive in Heaven and waiting for YOU to turn from
your sins and cast yourself at His feet, pleading
GUILTY and asking for MERCY.
   If you will come to Jesus in this manner, He will
save you and change your life.   You will have peace
in your soul, because you will justified and no

longer condemned.   "He that believeth on him is
not condemned: but he that believeth not is con-
demned already,"
JOHN 3:18a.

SEEK CHRIST TODAY!
   "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call
ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked for-
sake his way, and the unrighteous man his
thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and
he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for
he will abundantly pardon."
  ISAIAH 55:6-7.
   "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the
Lord shall be saved."
  ROMANS 10:13.
   If you will call on God in prayer right now, and
really mean business by letting go and trusting your
soul to Him, He will save you.
