Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ?
Are you saved, have you been born again?
Crusading for Christ
CHURCH "Matthew 16:18"
Where will you spend eternity? Heaven or Hell?
Your answer maybe I hope so, I think so, I don't know, but what is the truth to a question like this? Some will say I don't believe in God, others will say I'm not sure if there is a God and then there's always the religious groups that believes in all kinds of gods!
It really is confusing to say the least, but can I get serious for a few minutes?
The bible says in Psalms 14:1; 53:1 "The fool has said in his heart, there is no God."
I don't know about you but I sure don't want to be in that category, do you? So, let's say you don't fit in that category and you believe in God, good now for the next question, are you ready to meet Him? The bible says in Hebrews 9:27 " And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
The question now is simple, are we going to die?
So if we know that we are going to die and we believe in God and God has given us His Word and His Word says be ready to die because after death comes the judgment, then what are we waiting for? Let's dive in and see how we can be ready to meet God!
Let's look at the "FACTS" (Fact a thing that is known or proved to be true) a thing that is known or proved to be true, WOW!!!!!!!!
So we know for a fact that we are going to die it's a fact that 1 out every 1 person dies, fact, and when we die we will meet God, it's that simple. So the next question out of your mouth is how do I know that the Christian God is the only God? Great question and the answer is His Word/Bible is indisputable, it has been proven right 100% of the time no one has ever proved it wrong and there will never be anybody who can prove it wrong because it is the "Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible" word of God, man couldn't have written it if he wanted to and wouldn't write it if he could have! Now yes men wrote the bible as the
Holy Spirit gave it to him to write, it came by Revelation, Inspiration and finally Illumination.
In II Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The bible was written over a period of 1,600 years by 40 different authors it has 66 books 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament there is 400 years between the O.T. and N.T. there is 1,189 chapters, 31,102 verses and 783,137 words, it is the complete canon of God’s letter to His people and all that call and believe on Him.
Jesus Christ is the answer, now what is your question?
Jesus Christ is the complete answer to who is God and who God is, Jesus was the complete incarnation of God the Trinity, in the book of I Timothy 3:16: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
Here you have it, God was made in the flesh, justified by the Spirit, witnessed by the angels, He preached unto the gentiles, He was believed upon by the known world and on the Mount of Olives He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. This is truly the greatest story ever told, that God Himself would take on human flesh and die on an old rugged cross for all of mankind’s sins and then on the third day early in the morning a great earthquake hits Jerusalem and the guarded tomb starts shaking and the Roman soldiers basically pass out and the great stone over the door of the tomb rolls away that was sealed with the Roman seal and there it was a empty tomb! Praise the Lord, God has now completed the redemption for man, His blood was shed His body was given and now He has Risen from the dead to live forever more.
Now back to the question. Are you ready to meet God? There is only two answers. 1. Yes I am! 2. No I’m not!
Have you been saved by the grace of God, born again? Or maybe not?
What do we have to do to be saved? And what does the bible say we must do?
I’m glad you asked, because I’m going to tell you what the bible says we must do to go to heaven!
1. Admit you are a sinner!
Romans 3:10 says “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” so these two verses alone tell us in the eyes of God we are all sinners.
2. The penalty of sin is death physical and spiritual! Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord".
3. The redemption for our sin! Romans 5:12 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned": ROMANS 5:8 “But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
4. The ANSWER! Romans 10:8-10 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved !
That’s it believe God, believe in God He loves you and wants to save you all you have to do is ask in faith believing in the finished work of Calvary and you will be saved and then when someone ask you are you ready to meet God you can answer with a definite YES I AM! Hallelujah, Amen!
A few last scriptures I want you to read:
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When we come to God we must come by faith and our faith comes from God and reading the word of God. My hearts prayer is that you will believe in God and be saved, please receive Jesus Christ today as your personal Savior and God bless you.
