Do Not Be Negative?

"People say, 'Do not be negative; let us be positive;
let us just preach the simple gospel'. But the Bible is full of negatives,
full of warnings, ever showing us these terrible possibilities.
If you find in yourself a dislike of the warnings of the Scripture
and of this negative teaching,
it is obvious that you have been duped by the wiles of the devil.
You have not realized the situation in which you are placed".

-Martin Lloyd-Jones

Acts 17:29"Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.

30"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,

31because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead."

I want to be a believer, holy, sanctified when this happens, otherwise this could be a very negative message.......
