ARE YOU READY!

So many things are going on in the world today.  The signs show us, that Jesus will be returning soon. Are you ready to stand before your Creator?  Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

The Bible states Romans 3:23: that we are all sinners and have fallen short of the Glory of God.  Not one of us is without excuse when we stand before Him.

Good works won't get you into Heaven, being a good person, won't get you into Heaven, giving won't get you into Heaven, and prayer alone won't get you into Heaven.  JESUS is the ONLY WAY to the Father, not mohammed, not krishna, not allah - no other god - but Jesus. He is the only door!  John 14:6 (I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.")

Hear me beloveds of God.  He loves you so much that He stepped down from His throne, became a man (Jesus) to die for our sins! So that what was lost in the Garden of Eden, would be restored.  For us to have an intimate relationship with the Father, to KNOW Him.  That is the longing in His heart. He desires that all man would turn to Him and spend eternity with Him. No other god, idealogy, theology, religion, traditions, will get you to Heaven.  Only through Jesus Christ!

I urge you to open your heart and mind and allow Jesus to become Lord of your life!  He will cleanse and wash away all sin from your life.  He will set you FREE from all bondage, addictions, perversion, sexual immorality. The slate will be wiped clean.

Take These Important Steps of Salvation to Discover These Vital Answers:

STEP #1: Understand that God's desire for you is life, abundant, and eternal.


The Bible declares:

"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

Giving you abundant life required the supreme sacrifice: 

"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" (John 3:16).

God desires fellowship and companionship with you. What a wonderful gift the Father has given, yet if God gave His own Son to provide an abundant and everlasting life, why don’t more people have what He has designed for us to receive? It is a question answered by this sobering realization. 

STEP #2: Realize that you are separated from God.


There is a gap between God and mankind. He has provided a way for us to receive an abundant and eternal life, but people throughout the ages have made selfish choices to disobey God Almighty. These choices continue to cause separation from the Father.

God’s Word shows us that the result of sin is death. He says in His Word:

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12). 

And God also said,

"But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear" (Isaiah 59:2). 

Paul the apostle states in Romans 3:23,

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

And in Romans 6:23 we read:

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Every human was created with the ability and need to know God and fellowship with Him. Augustine, a minister who lived during the fourth and fifth centuries, called this longing in each of us "that God-shaped vacuum."

Every day we hear of people who are rich, famous, achievers, star athletes—people who seem to have the best life can offer—yet they try to fill that empty void in their lives with "things." They even try good works, morality, and religion. Yet they remain empty, for only God, through His Son, can fill that emptiness.

STEP #3: Accept the fact that God has provided only one solution to sin and separation from Himself.


Jesus Christ, His Son, is the only way to God. Only He can reconcile us to God the Father. Mankind may seek other solutions and worship other gods, but Jesus Christ, alone, died on the Cross for our sins and rose in triumph over the grave and eternal death. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and mankind.

The Bible explains: 

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). 

We are also told,

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God" (1 Peter 3:18).

There is only one way provided:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 2:5).

For in John 14:6 we read,

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

God Almighty has provided the only way. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin and rebellion against God by dying on the cross, shedding His blood, and rising from the dead to justify and reconcile you back to God the Father.

STEP #4: Get ready to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.


You can be brought back to God, and your relationship with Him can be restored by trusting in Christ alone to save your life from destruction. What an incredible exchange: Your worst for God’s best!

This step happens by asking Jesus Christ to take away your sin and to come into your heart to be your Lord and Savior.

God’s Word is very clear:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20).

And the Bible tells us,

"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" (Romans 10:9). 

Are you willing to let go of your burdens and sins?
Are you willing to turn away and repent from your sins?
Are you willing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now?

STEP #5: Pray to Receive Jesus Christ into your life.


At this moment you can pray the most important prayer of your life by simply saying:

Dear Lord Jesus,

I believe You are the Son of God. I believe you died for me on the cross and shed Your blood for my salvation. I believe you rose from the dead and ascended on high. I believe You are coming back again to earth. Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner. Forgive my sins. Cleanse me now with Your precious blood. Come into my heart. Save my soul right now. I give you my life. I receive You now as my Savior, my Lord, and my God. I am Yours forever, and I will serve You and follow You the rest of my days. From this moment on, I belong to You only. I no longer belong to this world, nor to the enemy of my soul. I surrender my life to you and ask that you take full control from this moment on and fill me with the baptism of fire, the Holy Spirit. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ.  

Amen!

By praying this prayer, confessing your sins, and receiving Jesus Christ into your heart, God has given you the right to become His forgiven child. The Bible gives you this assurance:

"But as many as received him, to them he gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them who believe on his name" (John 1:12).
