Ever wonder why the Creator of the Universe loved you, and chose you? I ps57-9-10MercyHeavensTruthCloudsbelieve we too can choose the path of truth.  He chose us through belief in His Son, not chose us to salvation.  He has called us by His gospel.

For me, sometimes I wonder why He would want me, why He would put up with me, my stubbornness, my rebellion, my sin.

Such tender mercy, compassion and forgiveness He had for all, yet He was and still is rejected by so many…..

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

Time is short, there is ONE ANSWER.

Jesus Christ !

Yes, He loves the WHOLE WORLD!Yes, He died and was the propitiation for the WHOLE WORLD! (1 John 2:2)But what must you do?  You must believe on Jesus Christ (who is God) who died for your sins on the cross, was buried in your place, and risen again as we too will be.   Have faith (Rom 3:21-28), the propitiation is effected when we believe.

I have chosen the way of truth…. Psalm 119:30a

  • There is NO reincarnation.
  • There is NO one true church (as in the Catholic church), the TRUE church is the body of believers who BELIEVE in their hearts and confess with their mouths that Jesus is the ONLY way.
  • There are NOT many paths to God.
  • Confessing that your church is the only way or the only “true church” means you have not placed your faith in Him and it means you are possibly very close to hearing, “Depart from me you evildoer, I never KNEW you.”
  • Being a good person will not do it.
  • Repenting or turning from your sins is not part of it.
  • Promising to serve God, or abandon all, or surrender all, or commit your life, these are good things, but are not the gospel.
  • Attending church will not save you.
  • Being baptized or taking communion will not save you.
  • Losing or ‘walking away’ is not possible with eternal life.

All you who claim the name of Jesus and say otherwise regarding eternal life being ETERNAL, a present tense, a continual tense, forever… are calling God a liar then… no way around it (1 John 5:10-13).

  • And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:40

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO THE FATHER.

HOW TO HAVE THE FREE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE

DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD?

Look around you.  He sent His Son because from the very beginning, we had free will, and still we chose to do it our own way.

is53-6ALL

We didn’t want to listen to even ONE rule. Just ONE. Nope… we had to rebel against God and choose our own way. Free will was not lost, but our innocence was, and worse?  We were separated from God because of our sin.

THERE IS NO GOD THEY SAY…

People don’t believe in God, yet blame Him for everything.  They don’t seek Him, they don’t look around at the beauty and magnitude of creation, yet those same people use His name to curse. OM God this or God that, or they use Jesus Christ’s name in vain. Why not Mohammed? Krishna? Buddha? Vishni?  BECAUSE, THEY ARE NOT GOD!   They are fake false gods, they will lead you to hell.

The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.  Ps 10:4

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,  because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.   Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.   Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.  Amen.  Romans 1:18-25

THERE IS A REMEDY….

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31

 THE GOSPEL – CLICK HERE

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  John 5:24

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  John 3:36

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.  John 6:47

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  Heb 11:6

(This does not mean as Calvinist’s teach that we cannot seek Him. The Lord in His graciousness drew all men when He lifted up Christ on the cross Jn 12:32.  He has drawn us through the prayers of others, through circumstances in our lives, through the planting and watering of others.  He has called us by the gospel, and says we can get faith BY hearing the Word.  He tells us the Scriptures are able to make us wise unto salvation.  He even sent the Holy Spirit to convict the world of unbelief, and judgment and righteousness.  Pray, open the book of John then Romans, ask the Lord to show you His truth)

God calls us by His gospel.  People, preach the gospel to others, it is seen in 1 Cor. 15:3-4.

rom 3-21-23 ALL

Yes Rob Bell, there is a hell!

And to those of you who believe in Purgatory, there is no escape.

JOHN THE BAPTIST SAID IN GOD’S WORD:

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  John 3:36

JESUS SAID IN THE WORD:

But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!  Luke 12:5

And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.  Matt 11:23

And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”  Matt 25:46

If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched—  where ‘Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched.” Matt 9:43-44

Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. John 5:28-29

“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death”   Rev 21:8

Romans 5-18 all menGod is HOLY and cannot tolerate sin in His presence. Jesus Christ was either who He said He was and witnessed by others to be; GOD, the MESSIAH, the SON OF GOD, the LAMB OF GOD (the perfect and final sacrifice without blemish or spot), the ONLY WAY, theTRUTH, the LIFE, or He was a madman, a liar.  All His apostles after He rose again, went out and performed signs and wonders and spread the good news, not one of his apostles denied anything they said was true, and all but one were tortured unto death and never denied Christ, why, if He was just an imposter?

The good news is that Christ paid the penalty for your sins, and if your believe on His sacrifice, He will wash you clean, and give you the FREE GIFT of eternal life.

WILL YOU STILL RESIST?  

WILL YOU STILL CHOOSE YOUR OWN WAY?

There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.  Prov. 14:12 repeated in Prov. 16:25

We have all sinned and fallen short of His glory.  The wages of ANY sin is death. (see Rom 3:23, 6:23)

  • Every one of us has lied, or coveted what someone else had, or even committed adultery. Jesus said if we even look at someone with lust in our hearts we have ALREADY committed adultery. Which one of you have not? MURDER? You say not murdered? Have you had an abortion? No? Have you ever hated another person? Jesus said you are a murderer if you have hated your brother (and yes He was speaking to all of mankind). Jesus said there were two great commandments, do you know what they are, and are you following them?

If you say you have not sinned, I John 1:8 says you are a liar.

Can you follow any of His rules without His help?

You cannot follow them on your own, because we can THINK we are good, but we just aren’t. The Bible tells us there is not ONE good person, NO NOT ONE. Also, you might think someone is good because of all the “good” you see them doing. The WORD of GOD tells us differently. All our righteousness is like filthy rags in His sight.  (Isaiah 64:6) And so no matter how “good” we think we are, we will be standing in front of God, unacceptable, having rejected effectively HIS ONLY SON.  What do you think this Righteous Judge will say on that day to you?  The ONLY acceptable sacrifice to HIM. The Only PURE and GOOD and RIGHTEOUS man that ever lived.  And YOU took His name in vain.  Or YOU said you didn’t believe in HIM.  You may have mocked HIM.  You may have ignored HIM.  Or maybe you thought you were a part of your salvation by doing certain good works.You may have called yourself by another name, perhaps the name of a religion?  Or the name of Atheist?  Or Buddhist?  Or Universalist?  Or Hinduist? Taoist?  Roman Catholic?  Mormon?  Jehovah’s Witness?  Muslim?

Did your prophet or your god die for you?  

Who is your god, and are they alive?   (No, Mary is not a god). 

The rest are fashioned by hands,  carved out of wood we use to heat ourselves by, the same tree we chopped down, and cook our meals by, people make themselves a “god”, bow down, and pray to it…. foolishness. (Is 44:18-20).  This has been since the beginning…

JESUS died in our place.


Again, Did your prophet or god die for you?  Is Mary able to have any part in saving you?  Didn’t she need a Savior?  (Luke 1:47)

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.  John 15:13

Can your priest, pastor, minister, parents, husband, wife, friend, stand before you in heaven and declare you righteous?

Only one friend can stand in front of you, and guarantee your entrance into heaven….

JESUS.

 SALVATIONBibleVerses

What is the good news? Well, the wages of sin IS death.

It

It IS appointed unto man, once to die, THEN the judgment. ALL men will face the living God, and His Word warns us that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. God’s law tells us if we have broken one law, we have lied once, stolen once, lusted once, we have broken them ALL.

So FORGET trying to compare yourself to the mass murderer and why would a loving God forgive them, blah blah blah?… He is a HOLY God, and He is a RIGHTEOUS JUDGE.And every single person WILL be judged by one standard.   See Isaiah 59, Jesus Christ is that standard, our helmet of salvation, our breastplate of righteousness, if we have believed.  Only by believing/receiving His Work on the cross on our behalf, dying for our sins, buried our place, risen again as the firstfruits of what would many made righteous by His blood.  Only by believing on Christ and Him crucified shall we be saved.  Add something to that, (such as repenting of your sins, turning from sins, committing your life to him, surrendering all, etc.) you have rejected Him just the same.  Yes, you have, because you think you can DO something to receive this free gift.  You can promise to be better, or be sorry, or turn from sins, or get water baptized, these things may be good things to aim for once we have believed and have the Holy Spirit’s help, but this is NOT a requirement to become saved, and IF you add it, YOU are guilty of adding to God’s Word. (Ray Comfort, Joyce Meyer, Paul Washer, John MacArthur, Calvin, Luther, Augustine; to name just a few)There is only ONE WAY to escape that penalty of death (eternal death and torture in hell – where the worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. It is a real place, meant for the angels who rebelled against God and followed Satan/Lucifer. )You say you don’t follow the devil? The Word of God says if you are not HIS, you are His enemy and His wrath abides upon you. Yes… this is true. Oh Yes, God is a God of Love, but He hates sin.

Hear the preacher, He hates the sin and loves the sinner (some ask)?

Yes! He desires none should perish, See also Romans 5.  But, He hates wickedness, and any sin, and those who refuse His Son’s sacrifice?….God loved the world enough to send His Son to die in our place.  Do not refuse Him, you can never change your mind.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  John 5:24

HELL is a real place, meant for the angels who rebelled against God and followed Satan/Lucifer. )  You say you don’t follow the devil? The Word of God says if you are not HIS, you are His Enemy and His wrath abides upon you. Yes… this is true. Oh Yes, God is a God of Love, but He hates sin.

Yes, God SO loved the world, that He gave His ONLY begotten Son that WHOSOEVER would believe on HIM, would NOT perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.  (John 3:16)  What kind of belief? The demons believe because Jesus is real, and they tremble, but they will not be saved, their damnation is finished.

Listen to His WORD.   Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. (Jesus IS God the Messiah)  Don’t believe on religion, works, promise of works, commitment, etc.  All is dead works.  The gospel message is found in 1 Cor 15:1-11.

SO WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE ON?  Your religion?  Your goodness?  Your works?   What?  Please read the book of John, which tells you why it was written:

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. Jn 20:31

    • Yes, God SO loved the world, that He gave His ONLY begotten Son that WHOSOEVER would believe on HIM, would NOT perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.  (John 3:16)  What kind of belief? The demons believe because Jesus is real, and they tremble, but they will not be saved, their damnation is finished.  And Jesus is not and never will be their SAVIOR, although He is their LORD.  Jesus is LORD over ALL.
    • Who do you rely on to save you?  God chose to ‘beget us by the Word of God’ (James 1:18).  He chose to call us ‘by the gospel’.  2 Thess 3:14.  He chose to allow us to come to salvation through belief in the truth, through the hearing of the Word, (2 Tim 3:15, Romans 10:17, 1 Thess 2:13, 1 Pet 1:23)
    • You who rail against the Word of God. (bunch of stories, myths, not all true, Jesus is not God… etc.)  woe to you… you will have no excuse.
    • You churches who add your own books or take away from His Word, or make your own teachings and traditions equal to God’s Holy Word, again, woe to you… (Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Catholics). Be careful.  Don’t follow after man. You will be held accountable (Deut 4:2; Prov 30:6; Psalm 50:16-17; Rev 22:18)

    Don’t justify yourself to me, it is YOU who will be weeping and gnashing your teeth on that day you are bound and taken away by the angels to be thrown in the fiery pit.  I still pray you will see the simple truth instead of your blind religion.

    Sound harsh? How harsh is it of you, to ignore the sacrifice that God made, by giving His only Son to die in YOUR place, and YOU reject Him.  He is waiting, and longsuffering, and merciful, He desires NO ONE should perish.  It is your choice.

    You say, “I don’t believe”, well, I SAY, You haven’t read His Word in sincerity and you have not sought Him in sincerity. Because His Word IS able to make you wise unto salvation. HIS Word IS able to increase your faith.   (Rom 10:17)

SEEK HIM WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND….

Don’t wait!  Remember, faith comes BY hearing, and hearing BY the Word.  He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION !

  • “Behold now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2

PS:  It’s worth looking into don’t you think? It’s a matter of life and death. You do not know what tomorrow holds. You may not be here tomorrow. Life is short. I may not be here tomorrow, the Lord may come for me and others who place our faith in Him alone. My husband is gone. My best friend shortly after. Another and another have died, some to be with the Lord and some to eternal torment.
