Heaven

Brittany Smalls was at one of our Kid’s Crusades in Beech Island, SC in 1995. She chose to accept Christ as her personal Savior that week. Later on that year as she was getting off of her school bus, a car ran the stop sign and killed little Brittany. What a tragedy! But oh how awesome that she gave her life to Jesus. We will see her again some day.

How about you?  Are YOU ready for eternity?

Preparations for Eternity

Admit to God that you are a sinner. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”Romans 3:23

Believe that Jesus is indeed who He claims to be. Jesus is the Son of God who came to this earth, lived a perfect life, and then gave His life on an old rugged Cross as the payment for your sins. On the third day He arose from the grave and is in Heaven right now preparing a place for those who have chosen to receive Him as their personal Savior. “. . . Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; . . . He was buried, and . . . He arose again the third day according to the Scriptures:” I Corinthians 15:3-4 “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.” Romans 10:9 “. . . believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . .” Acts 16:31

Call upon the Lord to save you. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Won’t you receive Him right now? He is waiting to hear from YOU.

Sample Prayer: “Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and deserve to go to hell. I believe that You died on the Cross to pay the penalty for my sin.  I also believe that You rose again from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in You alone to forgive my sin and to save me.  Thank you for giving me eternal life.  In Jesus Name, AMEN.”

If you prayed this prayer and you really meant it, then according to God’s Word, you are now a child of God – you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family!

Question:  When you ask Jesus to forgive you of your sin and to be your Savior, does He come into your life for avisit, or does He come to stay?

Answer:  He comes to stay!  Hebrews 13:5 says, “. . . I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”  Romans 10:9 says, “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.”  And Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL be save.”

Question:  So, since Jesus is already in your life, when you accept Him by faith as your Savior, do you have to ask Him to come in again, since He is already there?

    Answer: No, because He is already there.

God’s Word is true!  Believe it by faith!
