"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.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Note: Being born again means having a new life in Christ. Following His Perfect ways always. A true believer does not only speak the Word of God, but also lives by it.
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.

Isaiah 64:6 - But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Romans 3:10 - As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.
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.

Mathew 1:21 - And she (Mary) shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

2 Corinthians 5:21 - For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

John 4:14, 22-24But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into 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.

John 3:18
- 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 3:17
- For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

1 John 1:9
- If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
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.

Galatians 2:16 - Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
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?

And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
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.

Note: We don't need an image of God to worship God. God hates images and idols, so we would contradict to the Biblical teachings if we ought to have an image of God to worship Him as God is a Spirit. And we worship God through our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

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).

Revelation 20:15
- And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:10
- And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
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.

Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
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.
Deuteronomy 2:30 - But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.
