Read and hear the Word of God.Romans 10:17 "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Hebrews 4:12 " For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
ARE YOU A GOOD PERSON IN GODS EYES ?
If you were to suddenly die at this very moment, do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven ?
If you answered ,“ I hope so , I’ve been confirmed , I haven’t killed anyone , I’m a nice person , I’ve lived a good life, I’ve been baptized, I go to church, I’ve done my time , I think so , I deserve to go there, etc....”
You need to read further to be 100% sure that you would go to heaven, by hearing from the Word of God of the Bible.
Romans 10:17 “ So then faith cometh by hearing, hearing by the word of God . ”
What does the Bible say ?
Ecclesiastes 7:20 “ For there is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not .”
Romans 3:23 “ For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God .”
Because there is nobody perfect in Gods eyes, and because we have all sinned and come short of God’s perfect standard, None of us can get to Heaven on our own merit .
“ What !? I’m a sinner !? I have never sinned in my life.” OK then, what is a sin ? A sin is not putting God first in everything we do, a bad thought, lying, rebellion, swearing, disobedience, stealing, unmarried sex ,getting intoxicated, doing illegal drugs, lust, murder, etc....
You name it we’ve All done at least one of the above in our life time.
James 2:10 “ For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all .”
1 John 1:8 “ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
“OK, I am a sinner but, what does that mean ?”
Romans 6:23 “ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal through Jesus Christ our Lord .”
1 John 5:17 “All unrighteousness is sin; there is a sin not unto death.”
This death penalty for sin, is talking about physical death ( which we are familiar with ), and talking about a spiritual death (forever separated from the love of God ) in a literal lake of eternal fire!
Revelation 20:14 “ And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death .”
“But isn’t God a loving , all forgiving God ? Would a loving God send some one to Hell” ? The first thing we must realize is that we are each sinners, each guilty before a Holy and Just God. God must judge us of our sins and, OUR SINS against God will send us to hell. If God were to allow one sin to go unpunished, he would not be a just judge.What judge let’s guilty people go free ? He Cannot DO That ! He must be true to his Holy nature. God is perfectly just to judge us of our sins, of which each of us are guilty.We deserve the death penalty for sin, which is eternal torment and suffering in the Lake Of Fire. But God with his unmeasured Mercy provided for us a way out: His wonderful gift of eternal salvation through the shedding of blood by his only begotten Son Jesus.
Romans 5:8 “ But God commendeth ( showed ) his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us .”
Peter 3:18 “ For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit .”
God has already provided the only way for you to be saved-(from Hell ) through the blood, death, burial, and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is that sin-free innocent substitute .
Romans 10:10 “ 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 .”
1 John 5:12 “And this is the record, that God hath given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son .”
A Prayer for Salvation you can pray Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and worthy of death. But Lord, I believe that you died on the cross to pay for the penalty for my sins. You arose from the dead and are alive today. I ask you to forgive me of all my sins, purify my thoughts, words, and deeds that I may turn from my sins and be more like you. Now I ask you Jesus to come into my heart and become Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You Lord, for answering my prayer and coming into my heart this very moment .
In Jesus Name , Amen
