"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:12,15
My friend, God's word says that someday you are going to die and then stand face to face with almighty God.
In Luke 12:5 Jesus said, "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear him," The Lord Jesus made it clear that you should fear God because He alone has the power to cast you into hell.
This being true, nothing could be more important than you being saved from the everlasting torments of hell. God has sentenced all who sin to hell, to be tormented forever. God says in Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." In 1John 1:8 the scriptures say "If we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."
Sin is any violation of God's word. A few examples of sin would include, lying, stealing, sex before marriage, homosexuality, adultery, drunkenness, cheating, nakedness, ungodly music, abortion, and of course the greatest sin is the rejection of the blood of Christ.
Our only hope of being forgiven and saved from hell came when God Almighty arrived upon this earth. God, by His glorious power, was conceived in the womb of a virgin and thereby merged His eternal and holy being with a human being and nine months later was born the God-Man, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour!
The Lord died on the cross, shedding his blood as the sacrifice for your sins. However, the only way Christ's blood can be applied for your soul's salvation, is for you to repent and accept by faith His blood as the payment for your sins. "In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:" Colossians 1:14. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12. God's word further states in 1John 1:7 "... the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." God makes it clear, in Hebrews 9:22, "that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins."
The Lord Jesus' exact words in Mark 1:15 are: "repent ye and believe the gospel." God also said in Luke 13:3 "... except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish." God is not playing with words when He says that unless you repent, you will perish in hell fire.
My friend, are you ready to repent, to feel deep sorrow and regret for the wicked sins you have committed against the Holy Lord God Almighty? Are you willing right now, to repent and accept by faith the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as the one and only payment for your sins?
You must reject al man made rules for salvation and see that you can be born again only by simple faith in the blood sacrifice of Christ. God's word says in Ephesians 2:8,9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." Beloved, please do not make the soul damning mistake of trusting in your good works for salvation. You must realize that salvation is not of any works. You cannot be saved by water baptism, speaking in tongues, joining a church or lodge, being confirmed, going to mass, shouting, passing out, seeing visions, experiencing spine tingling sensations, repetitious prayers, or giving money to charitable organizations. Nor can you be saved by embracing worthy causes like the valiant fight for the unborn or the continued freedom of America. Would you dare think that God owes you Heaven because you mistakenly thought that you had lived the best you could? Besides Jesus Christ, who among us has lived so good a life as to deserve Heaven? For as we have already read, all have sinned and if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. My friend, the best you could ever do to thoroughly please God is to simply repent of your sins and believe that Jesus Christ suffered, bled, died, was buried and rose again for your sins, to save you from Hell.
THE DECISION IS YOURS: If you reject the blood of the Lord Jesus as the payment for your sins, you will die and pay the penalty for your own sins in hell fire. However, you could sincerely repent and admit to God that you are a hell-bound sinner, accept the blood of Jesus Christ and be saved from hell today and forever more! That's right, God offers you eternal life, not temporary life. Once you become saved by God's grace you can never lose this great salvation.
Receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour right now, by faith. Call out to Him with a believing heart, understanding that his blood will wash away all your sins. God hath said, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
If you are ready to be saved, would you humbly pray:
Dear Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins and ask you to forgive me and save my soul from hell. Lord I accept by faith your blood sacrifice upon the cross as the payment for my sins. Take my sins away and control my life, for I give myself to thee. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer and saving me eternally from hell, for I pray by faith in the name of Jesus. Amen.
