One day in the future, death and Hell will be cast into
the Lake of fire, a place of everlasting torment. Hell was actually
never prepared for people but was prepared for the devil and his
angels who rebelled against God. We leave God no choice if we
choose to reject what God has given us. 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. We condemn ourselves to hell when we
refuse to believe the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Eternal
life in heaven is a gift from God, so if we don't receive the
gift, He cannot give it to us. "For
the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord"
has given each individual the choice to decide if they want to
accept his wonderful gift of salvation or not. God is in control,
but He doesn't control us as puppets on a string, He gives us
freedom to choose. If He did control us to make us love Him,
it wouldn't be true love. He only wants us to come to Him, because
we want to love Him, and fellowship with Him.
Even though it grieves God when people reject His gift of
Jesus Christ He still lets the person decide for themselves.
"The Lord is not slack concerning his
promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance (2
You see, God cannot allow any sin in heaven because
He is a holy God. There is no one
that is without sin. Romans
3:10 says; "As
it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one".
The only way that anyone can stand righteous before God one day
in heaven completely without sin is to trust in the shed blood
that Jesus Christ provided as an atonement for mankind's sins.
God has made his plan of salvation so simple, even a child can
understand it. So we are without
excuse! Since God created our spirits to live
forever there has to be a place where people who reject Jesus
Christ go, and that place is Hell.
Ask yourself `Is your name written in the Lamb's book of life?'
It must be to go to heaven. Accepting Christ is the most important
decision anyone can make in this lifetime. It is an eternal decision! Don't wait till tomorrow to accept Christ.
No one but God knows what tomorrow holds. "behold,
now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation"(2 Corinthians 6:2)
One of Satan's biggest lies is to tell people to wait.
He only comes to kill, steal and destroy.
The Bible says in Romans
10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with
thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that
God hath raised him(Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with
the mouth confession is made unto salvation. To learn

Divine Appointment or to receive Jesus Christ into your life
right now just say a simple prayer like the one below meaning
it with all your heart:
| "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life ..."
Lord God. I come to You a sinner and I humbly repent. I believe
that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe You raised Him from the
dead. Come into my life Jesus and be my Lord and Savior. I receive
You, Lord Jesus to change and take control of my life that I
may live for You from this day forth and from now on. Thank You
Lord for saving me and cleansing me with Your precious blood.
In Jesus name, Amen.
|| If you have called on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
by faith, believing and asking Him to save you, you are saved!
Words mean nothing without belief! If you truly believe, you
will humbly allow Christ to begin working in your life so you
can fulfill the plan He has for you.
