Will you Be You Saved, Or Lost?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me (Jn. 14:6).
The Bible declares that “that no lie is of the truth, and that ” the truth shall make you free” (1Jn. 2:21; Jn. 8:32).
What you truly believe in evidences what you truly love and trust in. Rejecting the gospel of the Lord Jesus means you love sin over Him, darkness over light, and have believed the lie of the devil, and which will send you to the Lake of Fire. (Rev. 21: 27)!
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” (Rev. 20:10).
The Lord Jesus testified that it is the devil who was “a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it (Jn. 8:44).
Life is full of choices, and you have the ability to make moral and spiritual ones which are in contrast to each other. The ultimate choice you must make is between the devil and Christ, and thus between Heaven and Hell. Jesus declared, The thief [the devil] cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
To be saved, consider the following and may God grant you grace to repent and receive the Lord Jesus Christ today.
"How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation" (Heb. 2:3).
All have sinned, and broken God's good laws in heart and in deed, and nothing sinful will be allowed into God's Heavenly City; a real place of “fulness of joy” in the presence of Almighty God (Rm. 3:23; Rv. 21:27; Ps. 16:11; Rev. 21, 22).
If you die in your sins, you will not be allowed into Heaven, but will end up in a place just the opposite of Heaven, a place called the Lake of Fire, a real place of weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. A place of real torment - forever (Mt. 25:41, 46). "Except ye repent, ye shall likewise perish" (Lk. 13:3)
You have nothing to offer God by which you can gain Heaven nor escape Hell. Neither Allah, the Pope, Mary, Muhammmad, Buddha, etc. can save you. Your church membership, “good deeds,” praying to saints, etc. will not make you right with God.
Only the One sent by the Father, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came down from Heaven is able to redeem you on His expense and merit - on His precious blood and righteousness (not yours) - and by whom you can find the strength to follow Him.
It is only this Jesus who lived sinless, and then took your sins and mine and paid the price for our forgiveness with His own sinless blood, dying for us. And who rose again to be your present Savior and future Judge! (Acts 10:34-43; 1Pet. 1:18-20; 2:24; 3:18).
“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:30, 31).
You can be saved - forgiven, justified, and "born again" by the Holy Spirit of God, as Jesus said you must be (Jn. 3:3-7). If you want to be saved from your sins and live for God (and you cannot until you are born again), ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save you, trusting Him alone to do so. Though you can never gain Heaven nor escape Hell on any of your own merits, or that of a church, or live good enough to deserve to have eternal life with God, you must decide you want the Lord Jesus Christ, and believe on Him to be forgiven of your sins and have a new life following Him. Then you can will be made clean inside and declared “righteous,” and made “alive in Christ,” and can therefore live for God by the power of His Holy Spirit.
"Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve” (Joshua 24:15).
"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord" (Acts 3:19).
Jesus promised, "He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life" (Jn. 6:47).
Our prayer for you is you turn to the Lord JESUS today, choosing light over darkness, believing in Him with your whole heart, and pray to Him to save you, a helpless sinner.
"God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble” (James 4:6).
"And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, GOD be merciful to me a sinner.”
"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.” (Lk. 18:13; Rm.10:9).
Here is an example of a salvation-seeking prayer:
Dear LORD JESUS, please have mercy on me. I admit that I am a sinner, and I need to be saved. I know that I cannot save myself, but I believe that the FATHER sent You, and that You died for my sins and that You rose up alive. You are LORD.
So I am asking You LORD JESUS, to please save me. Please wash away all my sins, and come into my life, which I yield to You. And please fill me with your Holy Spirit so I can live for you.
Thank you LORD Jesus Christ, for saving those who trust in You. Amen.
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (Jn. 1:12).
Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out” (Jn. 6:37). That is good news!
You show this decision in obeying GOD by being baptized under water in identification with your LORD, and following HIM with a Bible – believing/preaching church (despite persecutions).
Be baptized under water in identification with your Lord, then follow Him with a Bible believing church: "Then they that gladly received His word were baptized: ...And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:41, 42). Praise ye the Lord!
“O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good; for His mercy for ever” (Ps. 107:1)!
