A person can get sober after being an addict, a person can do great things to help others, a person can just be a good person in general But if they do not have Jesus Christ, they will go to hell sober, they will go to hell doing great things and they will go to hell being a good person. It’s only by the Grace of God that you are saved and not by works. You cannot get into Heaven just on being a good person. The only way is through the Lord Jesus Christ.
When I came to Christ back in 2005 I had a very powerful testimony. The day I gave my life over to Jesus Christ, I was praying and God showed me a vision of Jesus on the cross. I could not see His face but I saw Him and it absolutely blew me away!! Then a week later, I was attacked by Satan and saw demons. That scared me to my very core and my body could not stop shaking. I remember that week I was hugging my mother for comfort and telling her that I didn’t want to lose Jesus because at that time I had not realized how powerful Jesus was. While I was hugging her, I heard an audible voice say~ I will never leave you nor forsake you and then this amazing peace came over me. I didn’t know the Bible very well but was reading the one year Bible every morning. The next day God confirmed what He had told me as there it was that very next day in His word in Joshua 1:5 at the end of that verse….” I will never leave you nor forsake you ” that made my hairs rise and I started to cry because I had just heard the voice of God.
That’s my testimony in a nutshell
A lot of people think there are many gods with many ways to get to Heaven but there is only one God and one Son~ Jesus who is God in the flesh. Many, many people will miss the mark and I’m sure I’m going to make some people uncomfortable, possibly mad and others will think I’m crazy when reading this but it’s the truth.
Now let me clarify….When I say God, I’m talking about the God of the Old Testament. Jehovah, The ” I Am “, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob- not Allah. Allah is not real and is a fake god, it does not exist.
How can we teach about Jesus Christ and love without mentioning hell as it’s a real place?
If you believe in evil in this world and Satan how can you not believe in God? God created Satan. How can you look around and see all the beauty and not realize there is a creator? How can you look at a child and not see God?
I know many people ask, if there is a God how come there is so much evil in this world or how can a God let bad things happen like babies dying? War? Cancer? Disease? Murders? Child perverts? And so many more things I have not listed. Well, the answer is very clear.
The answer is the fall of man. We all sin even believers. The only difference is that believers are saved only by the blood of Jesus.
If you say I’m not a sinner, you are deceived.
Have you ever told a lie? Looked at someone in lust- (That’s the same thing as committing adultery) , Had sex before marriage? Used God’s name in vein? Stolen anything? Hated someone- (That’s the same thing as murder ) ? Idols – ( for instance…anything could be an idol ) Music, Things, Yourself, A person, Money- the list could go on. Have you ever disobeyed your parents? Have you ever been Jealous of someone?
All those are sins against God and if you break just one of them- you are guilty of committing all of them.
Romans 3:20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. Romans 3:22-23 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
So, tell yourself if…….which you are a sinner and let’s just say you are a good person- how is God supposed to let you into His Heaven? Since you can’t get into Heaven being a sinner or just being a good person how are you supposed to get there?
The answer is Jesus Christ – period. God gives all people the right to choose Him as He calls everyone and so many refuse.
Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
John 3:16 For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
God does not want robots. If He did, He would have created us all that way but He wants a relationship- a personal one.
Jesus is the gap between you and God. Jesus died a very painful death on the cross for all of us and yes, He was thinking about you when He gave up His life. Jesus died for all of our sins- all of them. The past, the present and the future.
Jesus also rose from the dead three days later as He conquered death once and for all.
There are only two types of people in this world: the saved and the unsaved. There is no gray area. So, which one are you?
The world is beautiful but in this world Satan lives in it with his evil fallen angels. That’s the answer so many non believers don’t understand- that’s why they ask- How can a God allow this to happen? It’s because of the evil that lives in it that you can’t see but is there as Satan starts strife, pain, confusion, fear and all the evilness that happens on this earth and the fact that we are all born with a sinful nature….that’s why! When we are born, we are born a sinner and that’s why children throw temper tantrums because it’s there sinful nature coming out. Satan also influences people to do evil things. That’s when we have that choice to accept Jesus Christ or not as I have told you, God does not want robots but our hearts!
You may not take this seriously but you never know when you will die. Only God knows when you will die. Please don’t blow this off because salvation is the most important decision you could ever make!
Do you want to take that chance and end up in hell and in terrible burning pain, separated from God forever? When I mean forever, I mean for eternity and well, that’s forever! There are no second chances once you die.
As a believer, Christian….we have a hope and a future of eternal life and that gives us great joy and one awesome personal relationship with Jesus Christ!!! You can pray to Him and tell Him everything because He has walked this earth and knows our struggles. He won’t judge you but loves you. He’s not only your personal Lord and Savior, the Son of God but your best friend, He will always have your back, He will always pray for you to God as He’s the one mediator between you and God. Jesus is Holy, Devine, All powerful, Full of Mercy and Gentle.
God the Father has uniquely sealed the Lord Jesus Christ to give eternal life. This means we may receive the gift of eternal life only from the hand of Jesus, God’s unique Son.
John 6:40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” ~ Jesus
So, take sometime to think about what I have typed before refusing to believe.
If you question, why not read the book of John or Matthew in the Bible and do research for yourself. You just might be surprised.
If by chance this tugs at your heart and you have been searching……do this one thing. Bend down and pray to God. Tell Him you know you are a sinner and that you repent of all your sins. Talk to Him. Ask Jesus into your heart.
You have know idea what life is all about until you meet Jesus!!
Everything I’ve typed today has come from my heart to yours. I am not perfect, I’m not the best speller or writer, I’m not the most beautiful or the most intelligent person in the world but I love people and want everyone to know the truth that I know. ❤️
