IF You’re still reading, then you are still searching for answers.
If you are a Bible believer, then you will undoubtedly understand all of what’s below. If you are not, please pull out your reasoning. There is ONLY one way to Heaven. That is through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Look around and you will see that everything around you has a Creator. There is no such thing as evolution; that’s a theory created by godless people. No ‘big bang’ randomly creating anything. Everything you see, including yourself, was expertly created by a Divine Creator. I’m speaking of only ONE Creator… Jesus Christ, the One who is the Son of God and died for your sins so that you could follow Him and make it to Heaven once you die. He loves us that much! There are many ‘gods’ in this world, but there is only ONE TRUE LIVING GOD and His name is Jesus, known in His time as Yeshua.
Could all of this have been foretold in the Bible? Could our answers be clearly written in a Holy Book that dates back 6000 years? Let’s first see what Jesus Himself had to say in Matthew, chapter 24, in the Scriptures.
Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.
“So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
“Immediately after the distress of those days
“‘the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
The Day and Hour Unknown
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.Matthew 24, The Bible
What does the Bible say about the condition of People in the these Last Days in time?
“You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unfeeling, uncooperative, slanderous, degenerate, brutal, hateful of what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people. For some of these men go into homes and deceive foolish women who are burdened with sins and swayed by all kinds of desires. These women are always studying but are never able to arrive at a full knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men oppose the truth. They are depraved in mind and their faith is a counterfeit. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those two men,2 Timothy 3:1-9
their stupidity will be plain to everyone.”
What do the Scriptures say about what God will turn Man over to, if He doesn’t change?
“Furthermore, because they did not think it worthwhile to keep knowing God fully, God delivered them to degraded minds to perform acts that should not be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and viciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, haughty, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to their parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, and ruthless. Although they know God’s just requirement—that those who practice such things deserve to die—they not only do these things but even applaud others who practice them.”Romans 1:28-32
What is the penalty for our sins?
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in union with the Messiah Jesus our Lord.”Romans 6:23
How do I get Saved from My Sins ?
“If we make it our habit to confess our sins, in his faithful righteousness. He forgives us for those sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness.”(1 John 1:9)1 John 1:9
God’s Plan of Salvation
You may have heard about Salvation through Jesus Christ from the news, a friend, a family member, the media, church, or other place. It probably lingered in your head, but you never did anything about it because you didn’t quite understand it. You may think it’s about religion or a church building. That’s as far from the truth as it gets! In any case, I’ll give you all the basics right here.
Did you know that through Salvation, you enter into a very personal relationship with Jesus Christ? You don’t find it in church buildings or religious clubs. In fact, being saved is not about religion at all. It’s about relationship. Although Jesus came here as a Jew, from the tribe of Judah, He’s available to everyone – Jew and Gentile. He is the Messiah… the Savior of the world.
Whether you believe this message or not doesn’t really matter. The truth is what matters, and the truth is that there is a Master Creator who created you, me, and all things in this awesome and vast universe. Nothing was created by a random act or big bang. Creation is all in the Bible. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the Artist who created it all. We worship the Creator, not the creation.
Here’s what you need to know:
1) “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.” John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 10:10 gives us the reason that Jesus came, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” What is blocking us from God’s love? What is preventing us from having an abundant life?
2) “Humanity is tainted by sin and is therefore separated from God. As a result, we cannot know God’s wonderful plan for our lives.” Romans 3:23 affirms this information, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 gives us the consequences of sin, “the wages of sin is death.” God created us to have fellowship with Him. However, humanity brought sin into the world, and is therefore separated from God. We have ruined the relationship with Him that God intended us to have. What is the solution?
3) Jesus is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Him, we can have our sins forgiven and restore a right relationship with God.” Romans 5:8 tells us, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 informs us of what we need to know and believe in order to be saved, “…that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…” Jesus Himself declares that He is the only way of salvation in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” How can I receive this wonderful gift of salvation?
4) “We must place our faith in Jesus as Savior in order to receive the gift of salvation and know God’s wonderful plan for our lives.” John 1:12 describes this for us, “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” Acts 16:31 says it very clearly, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved! “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9).
If you want to trust in Jesus as your Savior, say something like the following words to Abba Father. Saying these words will not save you, but trusting in Jesus will! This prayer is simply a way to express to God your faith in Him and thank Him for providing for your salvation. This prayer isn’t ‘magic’! This is only the bare bones beginning of your salvation. You MUST open and read your Bible everyday. You must follow all of the 10 Commandments as specified in the Bible. Do NOT allow anyone to tell you that all you need to do is say a prayer. That’s a lie from the pit ofo Hell. You need to engage with Jesus and follow in ALL His ways for ALL the days of your life. Allow Jesus to live His life in you!
“Abba Father, I know that I have sinned against You and deserve punishment. But Your Son, Jesus took the punishment that I deserve upon Himself on the cross so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness – the gift of eternal life! I promise to allow YOU to live YOUR life within me for all the days of my life. Please honor me with your Holy Spirit as a deposit for eternity.
In the name of Jesus, Amen!”
Remember to walk in all His ways. Ask Him for the gift of His Holy Spirit Read your Bible as often as you eat each day. That’s the way the Holy Spirit transforms you.
Will you receive Jesus now… today? He’s waiting for you! Isn’t it time for a victorious and peace filled life without any fears.
