Jesus Christ is not an angel or an ordinary prophet like the assumption of Muslims and some religionists. Whether they believe it or not, Jesus is equal with God. Jesus has always existed in Heaven. Jesus is a self-existent Supreme Being. Your hope of making Heaven after your exit from the earth is dependent on your total acceptance of Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour. Sceptism is not good. It is a satanic plan to take you to hell when you die. Listen to our Lord Jesus Christ: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).
Jesus Christ is the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the WORD was GOD. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him (Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light (Jesus) shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:1-5). The Bible is the Word of God. Therefore, believe in Jesus Christ because He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. “And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” (Revelation 19:16).
Jesus Christ is omnipotent and omniscient. “Your throne, O God, will continue forever and ever…O Lord, in the beginning you made the earth and your hands made the sky…But You never change and Your life will never end” (Hebrews 1:8-12). “Jesus said to them, Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). “I and My Father are one” (John 10:31). “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25).
“Grace” refers to what God gives and cannot be earned. Grace is God’s loving desire and action to save us through Jesus Christ. You cannot earn eternal life by your good works. Salvation cannot be earned by good works or personal efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9). Only Jesus can deliver you from your condemnation in sin. Jesus is the “ONLY” divine link between God and humanity (John 14:6).
“Grace” is God’s gift to sinful humanity. You cannot earn it by your self-righteousness. Your knowledge of the grace of God that was revealed through Jesus Christ must generate faith. Faith must move you into action. Obey what God wants you to do. Trust in Jesus for your salvation, not in your religious ability, jihadist campaigns or attempt to trade your good works to God for His grace (Romans 5:1-2).
God’s grace gives us freedom to obey. The grace of God was revealed through Jesus Christ. God’s grace sets us free from the bondage of human religious traditions. You cannot justify yourself through the performance of religious traditions and ceremonies. You must respond to God’s grace by obedience to the gospel, which is the death of Jesus for your sins and His resurrection for your hope (Romans 6:3-6; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).
God does not want you in hell. He is a God of love (John 3:16). Due to His great love for you, He sent Jesus Christ to this Earth over 2,000 years ago to die on a cross to pay the price a Holy God demands for your sins (Matthew 27:32-44; Mark 15:21-41; Luke 23:26-43; John 19:17-27). You must not allow your religious teachings and unbelieving disposition to prevent you from accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour.
Jesus became the Son of God when He voluntarily came into the world in human form (Philippians 2:5-11). Jesus was divinely conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit by Virgin Mary. The divine incarnation of Jesus was necessary for our eternal redemption. “But Christ died for us while we were still sinners. In that way God showed us that He loves us very much” (Romans 5:8). “We have been made right with God by Christ’s blood (death). So through Christ we will surely be saved from God’s anger” (Romans 5:9).
Apostle Paul was one of those who, at one time, doubted that Jesus was the Son of God, but He changed His mind after encountering Jesus through a bright light on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:3). Paul dedicated his life to tell others that Jesus was the Son of God. In one of his letters, Paul wrote that God highly exalted Jesus, “and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:8-11).
The Bible is filled with the testimony of people who saw Jesus after He rose from the dead. The Apostle Paul refers to more than 500 people who saw Him after His resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:6). Many of these same apostles watched as Jesus ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9). Yet, there were many people in Jesus’ time that doubted His resurrection, including Thomas, who was one of His disciples. However, when Jesus personally appeared to him, Thomas believed. Jesus told him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed” (John 20:24-29).
Many of the Jewish leaders refused to believe that Jesus rose from the dead. However, the Apostle Peter told them, “We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him” (Acts 5:30-32). Paul was like many Christians who did not see Jesus while He was alive, but knew He had arisen because He came to know the risen Jesus.
Paul also knew the importance of faith to having a relationship with Him. The Bible says that “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). Paul knew that “by his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also” (1 Corinthians 6:14).
Before his ascension, Jesus said he was going to his Father. Jesus was God in the flesh. He came to reveal God’s nature by showing us how to live. He was loving, kind, and filled with God’s wisdom. He revealed how the power of God was available to answer prayer and solve problems.
Jesus died as a man, but God raised Him from the dead, to prove that He was the Son of God. When Jesus was baptized, “the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” (Luke 3:22) After Jesus died and was raised from the dead, He sent the Holy Spirit to be present in the lives of people who believed in Him. The Holy Spirit guides us, leads us, empowers us, and is God’s presence with us in our daily lives.
When you believe in Jesus Christ totally and that He was punished for your sins in your place; when you believe that God raised Him from the dead; when you accept Jesus as your Saviour and make Him the Lord of your life; and when you choose to walk in obedience to God and His Word, then you receive the right to spend a glorious eternity in heaven with Him! You exchange your will for His. You exchange eternal condemnation in hell without Him for eternity in heaven with Him.
Jesus Christ rose up on the third day after His redemptive death on the cross of Calvary (Matthew 28:1-8; Mark 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-10). Later, Jesus Christ went back to Heaven after His glorious resurrection (Mark 16:19-20; Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:9-11). Jesus Christ is the only way to make Heaven and escape from going to hell when you die (John 14:6). Listen to what Jesus Christ is saying to you now: “Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the One who lives. I was dead, but look: I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and hell” (Revelation 1:17-18).
God does not send someone to hell. You choose hell when you refuse to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour. Therefore, when you refuse God’s love gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ, you willingly choose hell. Your soul will be tormented for eternity in hell when you die.
Hell is for people who are deliberately rebelling against God and His only WAY of escaping the eternal torments of hell. Whether you believe it or not, that only WAY is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. No alternative saviour! No alternative way! “Jesus said to him, I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father (Heavenly God) except through Me” (John 14:6).
Unbelievers and sinners are heading for hell unless they repent from their numerous sins. (Hebrews 9:27). Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and escape hell’s damnation! “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).
When you say “No” to Jesus Christ and His payment for your sins, you are saying that you are looking forward to dying and being cast into hell. You are telling God that you do not need Jesus Christ. You will pay for your sins in hell! That is where you belong. Hell is for eternity! If you die without accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ, you will be tormented in hell forever! You will despair of ever having any deliverance! You will beg for death to come and take you away! However, you can only die once (Hebrews 9:27).
Reincarnation, the occultic doctrine that the soul enters, after death, into another human body, is a great deception. Do not let Satan deceive you with that false doctrine again. Purgatory and annihilation are also false doctrines. Do not believe false doctrines. Avoid hell!
It will be a great disaster if you die without Jesus Christ! (Mark 8:36). Hell is a place of eternal torment! “The smoke from their burning pain will rise forever and ever. There will be no rest, day or night” (Revelation 14:11).
God has a befitting and perfect place for you in Heaven: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no person has imagined what God has prepared for those people that love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
If you continually refuse the salvation offer of Jesus Christ, one day you will die and end up in the burning hell!
Do not wait until you die to find out the truth about hell! Tomorrow may be too late! “Never brag about what will happen in the future. You don’t know what will happen tomorrow” (Proverbs 27:1).
Many people die every second, every minute, every hour and they are going into eternity in either Heaven or hell! Death can occur unexpectedly through an automobile accident, heart attack/failure, stroke, assassination, hard drugs overdose, alcoholic indulgence, etc. Death can also occur deliberately through suicide! If you die without Jesus Christ, it will be the worst mistake you could possibly make!
Has there ever come a time and place in your life, when you received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour? If not, you are on the way to hell! Do not let anyone convince you that when you die, it will be all over! Eternal torment in hell is certain without Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.
If you commit suicide due to frustration or any great challenge, you will end up in hell! It will not be over, but your great suffering will continue for eternity in hell! Judgment is certain if you die as an unrepentant sinner or unbeliever (Hebrews 9:27). Do not reject the great salvation offer of Jesus Christ. You are heading for hell unless your name is written in the Book of Life in Heaven as a redeemed person through Christ redemption.
“And if a person’s name was not found written in the Book of Life, then that person was thrown into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:15).
Satan, the deceiver and his fallen angels/demons will be thrown and confined totally into the lake of fire and sulfur eventually by God. They will be tormented forever. That will be the end of Satan’s evil activities on earth forever and ever. The lake of fire and sulfur will be a place of eternal torment. It will be very terrible for Satan, demons and the lost souls in that eternal burning lake. Do not end up in it!
