The little phrase, “take heed”, appears more than 50 times in the Word of God. It may only be a tiny phrase consisting of two words but boy does it pack a punch and fire a shot across the bows. It is a phrase of warning; a sound of alarm; like a bell ringing or the town crier heralding FIRE!!, so the words “take heed” call immediately to arrest one’s attention. When one sees the words BEWARE, DANGER AHEAD, it is only a fool who chooses to ignore them to his own destruction.
In this sermon, a strong warning goes forth to those who name the name of Jesus Christ. Play with sin to your ruin! God is calling, today, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts!
