“FELIX LEFT PAUL” [Acts 24:25-27]
TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2019

“As Paul expounded on righteousness, self-control, and the coming judgment, Felix became frightened and said, ‘You may go for now. When I find the time, I will call for you.’ At the same time he was hoping that Paul would offer him a bribe. So he sent for Paul frequently and talked with him. After two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus. And wishing to do the Jews a favor, Felix left Paul in prison.”

It is a sad and unmistakable fact that men will perish, when salvation is at the door. Paul was God’s messenger, reasoning of righteousness, self-control, and coming judgment - the most important topics in the world and especially important to this governor - yet, rather than fleeing from the wrath to come, Felix had his eyes on money and popularity. He could not see the spiritual things that are eternal, and so it is with unsaved man. He’s got bigger fish to fry than the welfare of his eternal soul! He’s blinded by Satan to think the most important things are not as important as money and power. He trembles, but he prefers SHORT LIVED pleasure.

Moses fled from this because God opened his eyes [Heb 11:24-26]. He saw Him who is invisible, and we must have spiritual eyes to strive to enter the straight gate. Jesus said, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able [Luke 13:24].” We must value forgiveness, righteousness, holiness and readiness much more than this world, and we must know the way of salvation - not bible slogans and fancy terms, but Christ by faith. We must know the gospel, so that we trust in the Son of God - not as a fire escape or a distortion, but as He truly is in Scripture [Matt 16:17]. We must seek to be saved by truth.

1 How is it with you? Are you serious about the kingdom or something else? Do you care what the Bible says, or only that someone quotes it? Are you concerned about your soul, or is that “handled,” and you need other stuff to make you happy? What do you want from Paul - something to make you tidy in this life, or do you seek eternal wisdom? Paul gave Felix WISDOM, yet he craved money that never came. He chose the praise of man that’s temporary!

2 Do not be so foolish! Man is a beast who perishes, if he doesn’t know righteousness. He will live a short time and then suffer forever. There is no annihilation! Hell awaits the unbelieving; it was prepared for the Devil and his angels [Matt 25:41]. Just like Christ suffered upon the cross, the Rich Man was tormented in hell [Luke 16]! Do not think preparation doesn’t matter. Do not think it is easy to be saved and everybody makes it in! Don’t flatter yourself. The way is difficult, narrow, and few find it. “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it [Matt 7:13-14].” The way takes truth and pressing in. It is no light thing to be saved. Look at the Apostle Paul, suffering. Look at Jesus on the cross, suffering because He lives a holy life. Do not think you’ll make it into heaven easy. Be wise.

3 Here I am, teaching wisdom in post after post. Many have gone before me, and they are quoted. We have all the knowledge in the world at our fingertips, but here are men and women hearing the gospel and perishing! It happened to Felix, and it will happen to you. Time is running out. Felix had two years, then it changed, and he had Paul no more. Some of you have been reading post after post, but you will listen to Satan and the trembling will be gone. You’ll hope to get some joy, some peace, something to make your life better now, and you’ll disbelieve the truth of the gospel. Oh, how horrible it will be at the Judgment! You have no self-control, holding onto your sins, and it is not worth it! You are squandering ETERNITY for a little bit of time!

→ Man is so foolish. Be wise. Repent. Believe the gospel. Make Christ and eternal things the most important things you have.
