"1 Minute for Life Eternity - Salvation by Faith through Jesus Christ"
This article does not in anyway talk about Religions. This is more of a guideline on how we can build the foundation of our Faith in Jesus Christ. Having the right foundation of our Faith is very important. It will make our relationship right with the Lord Jesus.
Have you been asked of this question before? If the world ends today, where will you be after that? Most of us will answer, "I'm not sure." Well let's be sure about it. Let's all go to Heaven...
But wait! How do we do that? Well, let's start by building the Pillar of our Faith which is the Bible.
How can we understand completely the Word of GOD? The Bible is a Spiritual Book and one needs the Holy Spirit to understand it. Faith in Jesus is the first step, believing that through Him only you can go to Heaven.
John 3:2-3 - The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
And just how great is the Holy Bible?
Mark 13:31 - Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
This is where Sin has started (time of Adam and Eve).
Romans 5:12 - Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.
Nobody is perfect, only GOD is. So you are not excluded!
Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
This is the payment for our Sins. We could have been dead already if not for the Love of God the Father!
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Who paid for our Sins? Christ himself. And note, our sins have already been paid.
John 3:16 - 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.How do we obtain Salvation? We believe in Christ that He alone can save us and we confess our sins to Him.
Romans 10:9 - 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.
It is our FAITH in Jesus that will bring us to Heaven. And FAITH produces Good Works by the workings of the Holy Spirit. So FAITH is all that we need.
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.
Concrete example of Salvation by Faith. Remember the Thieves with Jesus in Calvary? One insulted Jesus and the other believed that Jesus is LORD and surrendered himself to Jesus Christ. He got saved last minute!
That man didn't have enough time left to do good works to pay for what he had done wrong. But he went to Heaven through his Faith in Jesus Christ.
Luke 23:39-43 - And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?How do we worship God?
John 4:22-24 - Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Is the Burning HELL for real? Yes it is!
Luke 16:24-25 - - And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame (Find HERE the full story of The Rich Man and Lazarus).
So what's next?
This is just the start of our Spiritual Journey. After having Faith in Jesus, believing that He alone can grant Eternal Life in Heaven, our next action is to learn more of His Words by listening to a sound Bible doctrine and by reading the Bible itself. Create a Bible reading habit and start with the New Testament all the way to Revelation. Use the King James Bible version. The Bible written from the original Manuscripts of Greeks and Hebrews and has been in use for over 400 Years now. Learn about the Bible History HERE.
Find out also why we have to be selective of the Bible that we need to use. Read HERE.
Your next focus after you have gained deep understanding of the Word of God is to share it with your family, friends and workmates. Hence fulfilling the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:19-20 - Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And for those who will be ashamed of sharing things about Jesus and His Words, read this.
Mark 8:38 - Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Remember, Jesus doesn't need us. It's us who need Him. If we keep on rejecting Him, He might just harden our hearts for good leaving us hopeless of His most precious Gift, which is Eternal Life in Heaven.
