THE WALL and THE WRECKING BALL

“He grabs the wrecking ball and swings it into the wall of sin, and it comes crashing down”

Well, I am so thankful that finally my latest tract is finished. I must admit that I terribly dragged my feet on this one. I spent about six month’s on the front side (on and off, of course). This week I said to myself, we are going to finish it. Tuesday came, and in about three hours, I was able to put together the back side. Praise God! What a blessing it is to finally finish it and get it out in circulation. About 200 have gone out in the first two days. Bless the readers, Lord! To God be all the glory!

A little history about the making of this one:

I have shared about the wall of sin, for several years now. However, the “wrecking ball” part was relatively new.

One day, about six month’s ago, I was riding the train to downtown and sharing with a brother in our Lord about the tract. I was mentioning to him about “the wall’, when I noticed his head hang down. I was trying to figure in my mind what had gone wrong, what he was thinking as he stood there with his head down. All of a sudden, he raises his head up and looks at me and says, “THE WALL and THE WRECKING BALL!” I must admit that I was taken back by it. I looked at him, puzzled. He smiled and said, “yeah, just like when Christ went into the temple and through the chairs and tables over. He takes the Wrecking Ball and throws it through the wall, and it comes crashing down”.

I stood back in amazement. Shocked at the title. Later that day, God confirmed it in my spirit.

Here it is:

THE WALL and THE WRECKING BALL

There is a Wall that separates people from God. This Wall is the Wall of sin. It is made up of every thought, word, and deed that is against God and His Word. “Don’t think that the Lord is helpless to save you or too deaf to hear your call for help! It is because of your sins that He doesn’t hear you. It is your sins that separate you from God.” (Isa.59:1-2) And, we have all sinned and broken the commandments of God (see Rom.3:23, 5:12, 1Jn.3:4).

This separation because of sin, is also called spiritual death. In the beginning, the first man Adam was given one commandment from God. And God said that if he broke that command, he “would surely die” (Gen.2:16-17). They (Adam and Eve) broke the command and their consequence was death. However, they didn’t die physically immediately, but they were expelled from the garden of Eden and thus separated from God (see Gen.3:22-24).

Once you understand this separation/death and how it relates to you personally, and if you desire to turn from your sins (repent) and be restored to a right relationship with God, then and then only, are you ready for “The Wrecking Ball”.

So the question is: Do you want the wall to come down? Or, do you want to continue to live in sin (death) and be separated from God? And, not only while here on earth, but throughout all eternity? If your ready for true living and want the cure, please turn over and read.

Side 2:

There is only one Wrecking Ball that is able to bust through the Wall of sin. This wrecking ball (so to speak) is Christ Jesus. Just like in his day, when he went into the temple and grabbed the tables and chairs, and through them upside down because they were buying and selling doves in the temple,(Matt.21:12) He grabs the wrecking ball and swings it into the wall of sin, and it comes crashing down.

God doesn’t mess around with sin. He hates sin, but loves the sinner. “For God so loved the world (that’s you and I), that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish (be fully destroyed because of sin), but have everlasting life.” (Jn.3:16). “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom.5:8)

“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1Jn.4:10)

There is only one sacrifice for our sins. (see the book of Hebrews). There is only one way the wall can come down. “And His name shall be called Jesus, for He will save his people from their sins.” (Matt.1:21) “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (Jn.1:29)

So, if your ready to forsake sin (repent) and come into a relationship with God, and experience Him (true life) while living here on the earth, you can. It comes down to choice. You can choose life through Christ, or death through sin. Which choice will it be? “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. In your heart you believe (by faith) to be made right (righteousness), and confession is made that results in salvation. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord Jesus, shall be saved.” (Rom.10:9-10,13)

If you like, fill free to copy and print into a tract. I use a postcard format anymore. It’s seems to be the easiest. Any questions, let me know.

May you be blessed as you go out!

  1. Don’t forget the “Main” reason….. to come to God « The Word on the Streets Says:

    […] One must share in some detail the nature of sin. It is death. Not only physical, but more importantly spiritual death, which is “separation” from God. The sinner must realize that he or she is separated from God because of sin. I liken this to a wall. People that have yet to receive Christ, are separated from God. They must know that there can be no true relationship with God until the wall comes down. And it can only come down through the only gift that God gave for our sins, that being The Christ. For more on the subject of the wall and seperation see my post  https://rjperalta.wordpress.com/2010/07/09/the-wall-and-the-wrecking-ball/ […]

    No More Walls! I want them to be all destroyed by his love and grace! This is a wonderful way to think about it and even visualize it!

    Yes Kimberley! This of course is written to those who have yet to come to Christ to be saved, thus “The Wall”. Now “Walls” is another subject all together.
