"1 Minute for your Life Security in Eternity"
Common answer i get when i ask individuals if they know where they will go if they die today is... "I don't know or I am not sure." Being not sure of one's eternal security means one has not known the way to eternal life. And this starts with the Gospel...
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 - Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
Why does each person in the world need a Savior? It is because of the sin that Adam brought to humanity when he sinned against God, which sentenced everyone to death. All that were born after him.
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.
And with the sin, not one man can be righteous before God. Even if they have done some good works.
Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
And what is the payment for sin? Death! But God's gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
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.
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.How do we obtain Salvation or Eternal Life? 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 4:24 - 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).
And just how great is the Holy Bible?
The Bible accounts the beginning, the present and the future of time. It revealed and fulfilled the many things to come including the coming of Jesus Christ and the signs of the end times which we are seeing vividly today. It also tells us what to expect in the future. The Bible has already revealed historical and scientifical information which our current science only managed to discover lately. The Bible accounted the life of Jesus, His works and His death, burial and resurrection. It was witnessed and written by His apostles and disciples, even witnessed by thousands. The Bible is the only Book that can change life permanently and can give life eternally through Faith in Jesus Christ.
The Bible has no contradictions despite the Old Testament and the New Testament were written hundreds of years apart. Even if it was translated by different scholars having no knowledge of what the other books the rest of the scholars were translating. The Bible is a Divine and Holy Book which is the standard for moral, spiritual and godly living. There’s not a book, no not one, that would contain even just 1 percent of what the Bible has. The Bible is the Word of God where even after the existence of the heaven and the earth, the Word of God will remain...
Mark 13:31 - Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
So what's next?
Grow in the knowledge of God. How do you do it? Read the Bible and find a church that truly teaches God's Word. Fundamental Baptist Church will be the best place for you to grow in the Word of God mightily.
Romans 10:17 - So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
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.
