We all are going to die if Jesus doesn’t return first. Where will you spend eternity? With God in Heaven or with Satan in Hell? I don’t know if this will be the first or last chance you have to receive this most precious gift, but is it worth the risk to not put your attention on your eternal condition RIGHT NOW? God’s overwhelming love for you is MORE THAN WE CAN COMPREHEND. But it’s very real. God’s wish is that NONE would perish into eternal damnation, that ALL would come to Him and believe Him and receive His love.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and your Savior – have you repented of your sins, from your heart?
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the sinless Lamb who walked among us and was tempted in all ways, yet sinned not; Who laid down His life so that those who repent of their sins and believe on Him would be saved; Who rose from the dead after taking back the keys to hell, death and the grave from Satan; Who sits at the right hand of the Father in Heaven, interceding for the children of God, those that are born again by His Holy Spirit (Galatians 3:26): have you received this Christ Jesus and the most precious gift of Eternal life ?
This is not a PARABLE that Jesus Christ told, it’s a TRUE STORY with REAL PEOPLE, PLACES and EVENTS:
Luke 16:19-31 King James Version (KJV)
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 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.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
The One that was resurrected, Jesus Christ – The Son of God and the Lord God Himself – was crucified, died and was buried. On the 3rd day He rose again; from the dead. And He is patiently waiting for you to come home. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit opens your spiritual eyes, that you truly repent from your heart – and be born again of God’s Holy Spirit. Being “good” or doing “good things” won’t get it done. It is by grace through faith in Christ by which we are saved.
I was on my way out; totally defeated and mired in alcoholism and various addictions. I cried out to Jesus and said “I can’t do this without You! Please make yourself real to me, I surrender!” And sure enough, Christ’s Holy Spirit filled my room; I surrendered to Christ Jesus – and my burdens evaporated! My worries, concerns, misguided notions of God and the misconceptions I had harbored – for over 20 years – about His call and plan for my life were immediately lifted. I was instantly changed in the blink of an eye. We talked for over an hour about how much He loves me as I am and NOT AS I SHOULD BE, because none of us on this earth are as we should be.
He explained to me how to walk in humility and obedience, to allow Him to lead me. He taught me what it means to follow Him and to walk in His grace, peace and power here on earth. He told me to pray about, seek and attend a born again, Bible believing, Holy Spirit-filled church. He told me that to know Him I had to read my Bible and pray by His Holy Spirit. And it’s all TRUE!
He was sent here to earth from his Eternal home in Heaven to pay the price to redeem us, to pay the price to wash away our sins so that we could be reconciled to our loving Father God, Yahweh. I have learned that the Lord Jehovah of the Old Testament IS IN FACT Jesus Christ, revealed in the New Testament, the Word that became flesh and walked among us – He died and rose again! Jesus *IS* God !!
Praise God, and God alone; I haven’t had a drink for 15 months and I DON’T NEED ALL THOSE SUBSTITUTES ANYMORE ! Do temptations come ? Of course, we still live in this fallen, sick and LOST world where Satan reigns. But as a born again, Spirit-filled child of God I don’t have to follow my flesh nor the king of this world. Hallelujah !
Those who receive this gift – by faith in Christ and not by our works – will have a home in Heaven with God for eternity when our time here is up and also be able to walk in the power and peace provided by the Holy Spirit of Christ while we are here on earth. Serenity isn’t freedom FROM the storms; it is God’s peace WITHIN the storms.
If you haven’t surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, may you do so –>NOW.
