How to get to Heaven. God's Free Gift to YOU!
THE GOOD NEWS - Jesus loves all people and wants all people to be saved and spend eternity in Heaven. 1 Timothy 2:3-4 says, “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
THE PROBLEM - When God created us, he did not make us like "robots" that automatically love and obey him. He allowed us to make choices. Our choice to go our own way and rebel against God makes us impure and separates us from God's plan. Heaven is a perfect place - created by God for us to live in for all eternity. The problem is that we have all sinned, and we cannot enter into Heaven as we are. If we did, then Heaven would no longer be perfect because it would contain us - and our imperfections.
THE SOLUTION - God has provided a solution to this problem, and has made a way for ALL people to be purified from their sins and able to enter Heaven. No matter what a person has done, God will forgive them… if they choose to follow the ABC's of Salvation...
The ABCs of Salvation:
ADMIT that you have sinned. Nobody is perfect.
Romans 3:23 says "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
1 John 1:8-9 says, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
BELIEVE - Believe Jesus died for you, was buried, and then rose again:
Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Jesus said that He was the ONLY way to Heaven. In John 14:6 Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Acts 4:12 also says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Jesus is the ONLY one in the history of the world that died on the cross for your sins and rose again from the grave. It is only Jesus that can purify us from our sins and allow us to enter into a perfect Heaven.
1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
CONFESS Jesus as your Lord and Savior
Romans 10:9 says, "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."
God gives us one life and one chance to confess Jesus and live for Him. Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Jesus is giving you the choice TODAY, to either accept Him or reject Him. Tomorrow is not promised to anybody. In this world, on average 3 people die every second. We never know when our time is up. Do not risk losing Heaven, and all of God’s blessings and all of God’s promises by putting off accepting Him now, hoping for another time - that might not ever come. We need to make sure we are ready right now.
If you want to receive God’s FREE GIFT, and confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can begin by praying this prayer……….
Go ahead and PRAY NOW:
"Lord Jesus, please forgive my sins. Thank You for loving me and dying on the cross to save me. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Help me become the person that You want me to become in every area of my life, in Jesus' name, amen!"
Congratulations - Welcome to God's Family!
If you sincerely prayed this prayer, then congratulations on beginning a new life! Jesus says in Luke 15:10 “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” The Bible says, "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 (John 1:12)." And, since you are now saved, Jesus says in Luke 10:20 “rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Now that you are saved, and your past sins are erased, God is giving you a fresh start. God is ready to give you an abundant life that is filled with Victory and Blessings. We must choose to live a life for God and do God’s will. Our choices greatly affect our outcomes in life. Our habits greatly determine our destiny.
DEVELOP a lifelong relationship with Jesus and let Jesus help you repent from sin and DO God's will.
God has a special plan and purpose for every person’s life. The more we get to know God and Jesus through Prayer and Bible Reading, the clearer God’s will and God’s plan for our life will become.
Jesus loves you, and wants to grow closer to you, and be your best friend. Many people know ABOUT Jesus, but they do not really KNOW Jesus as a best friend. Jesus can take the place of anything in your life, but nothing can take the place of Jesus! Jesus is the only one who saved you from your sins, and gave you your ticket into Heaven. Jesus will help you live a life of Victory! Jesus is unlimited, almighty, all-powerful, and all-knowing. He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. He is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. The name of Jesus is above every name (see Philippians 2:9). He is the solution to any problem, and He is bigger than any obstacle you will ever face.
Jesus said in John 3:3, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” If we are truly saved and “born again” by the grace of Jesus, we should expect some exciting changes in our lives. Being “born again” means we “die” to our old life, and our old self centered ways of doing things, and we “live” in the new abundant life that God has for us. This inner-change will bring us outer victory.
