ARE YOU SAVED?
After you die do you think you will you go to Heaven or Hell?
We all DESERVE to go to Hell because of what we have done WRONG in this life!
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" - Romans 3:10
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23
The "Good News" is that God LOVES us and wants to SAVE US from going to that terrible place called Hell.
The Bible Says, "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." - 1 Timothy 2:3-4
After we die it will be too late to be saved!
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the JUDGMENT" - Hebrews 9:27
God's solution for our sin is The Cross...
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
"...Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
"In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;" - Ephesians 1:7
SALVATION is God's FREE GIFT to us...
"For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23
The Result of our faith is PEACE WITH GOD...
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." - Romans 5:1
"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." - Ephesians 2:8-9
At this very moment you have the responsibility of making a decision.
You can be saved right now:
Simply make the decision in your heart to trust completely and exclusively in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as the total payment to God for your sins.
The moment you do, God will forgive you all your sins and save you from spending eternity in the Lake of Fire.
After we are saved we are SEALED (kept safe by God) by Being given God's Holy Spirit to be with us until we go to be in heaven...
"In whom [Christ] ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise..." - Ephesians 1:13
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth NOT the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." - John 3:36
