Final Daze: "God's Way, or the Highway!"
In 2010, a poll showed that more than 80% of Americans claim to be Christians. At first glance that is one impressive figure. However, if we read what Jesus told His followers in Matthew 7:13-14, we see a serious contradiction between that poll finding and the Word of God. It is apparent, from what Jesus says, the gate and road to hell are “broad,” and flooded with “many.” Jesus taught in Matthew and Luke (13:24) that the gate to heaven is narrow like the path leading there. Furthermore, Jesus said that the narrow path has its difficulties, causing “few” to find and be able to enter the gate! Scriptures put the Bible at odds with the poll.
Final Daze: “God’s Way, or the Highway,” is an in depth examination of the narrow path, gate, and Romans 1:16-32 where Paul tells the people they have exchanged Biblical truths for their own understandings and wisdom. Not only do they believe their ways to be wiser than God’s way, but they worship their choices. Paul says God is close to turning them over to their error filled ways, lustful lifestyles, and degrading passions, once and for all! When God decides to turn mankind, individually and collectively, over to their own wickedness, it will be like a “spiritual fog, or daze” settling on and losing them to follow their sin, as they move ever closer to the final darkness and hell!
The “final daze” draped over those rebellious souls will result in their heading down the “highway to hell!” in massive numbers! Is there still time for those dabbling with worldly deities, cons and religions to come to God? Not really, as Jesus told us “today” is the day of salvation; not tomorrow, for tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. The coming haze will be a direct result of man’s personal arrogance, vanity, lust and love for the pleasures of the flesh which they try to justify with God’s Word. This is religious apostasy.
Pastor Zimmer provides a creative narrative that is upbeat, candid and prayerfully aimed at correcting the errors of the multitude before their time runs out. This book reflects his calling to the ministry, and his heartfelt desire to assist all who want, to exit the road to hell. The “trumpets in Zion have sounded” and the multitudes need to choose whom they’ll follow on earth into eternity. The right to call yourself a Christian is based on more than most are willing to commit to, personally and spiritually, in this life! Final Daze is composed in a way to make sure that those who claim to be His, have no doubt. For instance, the term Christian is used just three times in the New Testament.
The first was in Acts 11:26, when Barnabas and Paul, guests of the Antioch congregation, were referred to as Christians. The second is in Acts 26:28 when King Herod Agrippa II asks Paul if he can persuade him to become a Christian in such a short time. The final is in, I Peter 4:16 where believers are told, “if you suffer for being Christians, don’t be ashamed; instead, Praise the Father for the name you bear!” The etymology of “Christian”
Final Daze is written to make sure that those who call themselves Christian are not merely wasting their one opportunity to have eternal life by practicing forms of religions. A Biblical Christian is one who is truly saved, washed in the blood of Jesus, and not merely carrying out some form of “religious lip service.” Biblical repentance, leading to salvation, requires an act of the heart and soul that changes ones entire eternal direction here on earth!
