To be allowed to pass through heaven’s gate, you need to have all of your sins removed. The only cleanser strong enough to thoroughly remove sin stains is the blood of Jesus Christ. First, admit your sinful state. Next, ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your wrong doings. Finally, make Jesus Christ Lord of your life by surrendering your will to Him. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and to forgive your sins.
By dying on the cross, Jesus Christ made it possible for each of us to be granted a full pardon from the punishment of eternal damnation. The reason so few people accept this pardon is that they do not think they need a Savior or they want to find their own way of salvation. When God looked at your soul, He saw a sinner. God judges your heart, your thoughts, your attitude and intentions. God looks at the part of you that is not seen with the naked eye. When you are saved and forgiven of your sins, God looks upon you and sees the blood of Jesus Christ making you pure and clean. Only the blood of Jesus Christ can take away your sins. Without the blood of Jesus Christ cleansing you of your sins you are not worthy to stand in the presence of Almighty God and enter into heaven. Once Jesus Christ covers you in His blood, God accepts you as one of His children. God will take all His children straight to heaven on Rapture day. If you did not accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior or genuinely repent from your sins, you will be left behind on Rapture day. That will not happen to you in Jesus name. Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven (John 14:6).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26). “If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10). “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Changing Your Direction:
After making Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, you need to change the direction of your life. Once you realize you have been heading in the wrong direction, the only option that makes sense is to turn right around and start heading in the right direction. You cannot just say a few words and then continue on your merry way. You need to make a full commitment to Jesus Christ by reading His words (Bible) regularly and following His examples of holy living. Try to have a Bible if you don’t have one. Ask Jesus to help and lead you. “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and those are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14).
Jesus Christ Is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent
Jesus Christ is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. “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).
The Bible speaks about God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. Christians refer to them as the “Trinity.” There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4-5), but He is embodied in three Persons. Jesus called God “the Father” and taught us to call Him our “Father in Heaven” (Matthew 6:9). Jesus lived in communion with his heavenly Father, always doing his will and recognizing him as truly and eternally God.
Before his ascension, Jesus Christ said he was going to his Father. Jesus Christ 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 Christ became the Son of God when He voluntarily came into the world in human form (Philippians 2:5-11). Jesus Christ was divinely conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit by Virgin Mary. The divine incarnation of Jesus Christ 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).
Jesus Christ died as a man, but God raised Him from the dead, to prove that He was the Son of God. When Jesus Christ 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 Christ 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.
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).
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 Savior 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.
The Imminent Rapture. Be Ready Always!
Do you care for the Rapture? How often do you think about the Rapture? Or rather, are you prepared for the Rapture? Better still, do you have clear understanding of what Rapture is all about? It is an unpopular topic in churches today and so many Christians care less about it because it is not as enticing and motivating as prosperity, breakthrough, new things, favors, blessing and earthly success.
However, Rapture is a daily expectation and thought of the wise Christians while prosperity and earthly blessings are the focus for the lukewarm/cold Christians. Rapture is the catching away of the saints, which will happen within seconds and any moment one day (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 ). It is the first event of the end time advent when the angels of God will blow the trumpets, only Christians who are waiting for it, expecting it and preparing for it will make it. The simple clarification for self-examination here is that if you are thinking, waiting, preparing or expecting prosperity, miracle or anything more than Rapture, you will not make the Rapture. Only those who earnestly, eagerly wait and prepare for His (Jesus Christ) appearance more than anything else will eventually make it, just like the 5 wise virgins. Read Matthew 25.
Rapture is a glorious event of all generations; it is going to be splendid, wonderful and rewarding for the saints more than any event in the history of the world. Then it will leave behind gloom, doom and destructive reign of the Antichrist (666) during the tribulation period for people who will miss the Rapture. Jesus Christ gave us the signs, which will show that Rapture is very near, that should warn the wise to be more prepared. The two major signs are already present: CARE OF THIS WORLD through false preachers and GLOBAL WARMING. Read what Jesus Christ said:
CARE OF THIS WORLD: “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26, 27. “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:11-12.
The cares of this world has overcome many preachers, many churches and many Christians. It is not just the work of the devil; it is the sign of end time. The syndrome of prosperity, breakthrough, earthly blessings, and focus on being rich, having cars, houses, big businesses, the care for money, mansion, personal jets, make-ups, partying, obsessing sport passion are signs of end-time. It takes being wise to be warned.
GLOBAL WARMING & CRISIS: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8. The global crisis, weapon building are not just political or matters of misunderstanding, and it is to be naive and ignorant to see the present global warming, massive flooding, overheating, weather irregularities, earthquakes, etc as just scientific; but it is a global “warning” of the imminent rapture. The physical will see it as global warming, the spiritual will see it as “global warning”; the fool will call it scientific but the wise calls it prophetic.
Are you ready and prepared for the Rapture? You can become wise from here by repenting and totally rededicating your life to Jesus Christ. Surrender all, be a different Christian of old, biblical standard in your family, your church, your place of work, your business, your school, everywhere. Let your primary purpose be to please God, your primary focus to make heaven and your primary expectation to be raptured. Even if you can’t remember when last your pastors preached about the Rapture and Second Coming of Jesus, you should remember Lot’s wife (Genesis 19:23-26).
MATTHEW 24:42-44: “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Vital Soul Winning Admonition Of “MARANATHA TRUMPETER”
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. “The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur…and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10). You will be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire and sulfur. Your soul will never die but it will be eternally tormented in the horrible burning lake. “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).
Jesus Christ is the only way to make Heaven and escape from going to hell when you die (John 14:6). 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! The second death is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 21:8). 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.
When you refuse God’s love gift of eternal life in Jesus, you willingly choose hell. Your soul will be tormented for eternity in hell when you die. When you say “No” to Jesus 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. 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). Purgatory is a false doctrine. Reincarnation is a great satanic deception. Do not let Satan deceive you with false doctrines again.
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 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). Avoid hell. Jesus is your only way of making heaven. It will not cost you anything to accept Jesus as your personal Saviour. Accept Jesus while you are still alive. It will be too late if you die and end up in hell. Take the right decision now. “The salvation that was given to us is very great. So surely we also will be punished if we live like this salvation is not important.” (Hebrews 2:3).
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-15).
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, ask Him to save you now! Confess all your sins and ask God to forgive you in Jesus name. Do not put it off another second! This may be your last chance before you die! Take the chance now! The salvation of Jesus is very important. Remain steadfast. Heaven will be your eternal home in Jesus name. It is very easy to accept the salvation of Jesus Christ. To accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, pray the salvation prayer below and mean it with all your heart.
Salvation Steps & Prayer
Are you still an unbeliever or unrepentant sinner? You must accept the great salvation of Jesus Christ now! If you remain in your rebellion against Jesus Christ, you will be left behind on Rapture day by Jesus Christ. Also, if you die without accepting the great salvation offer of Jesus Christ, you will end up in eternal burning hell! How can you be saved? It is very simple. Take the steps below.
The following prayer, “The Sinner’s Prayer” (also known as the Prayer of Salvation) is by no means meant to be an “official prayer”, but rather a sample prayer to follow when asking Jesus Christ into your heart. You may certainly pray to God in your own words.
Regarding the location of the Sinner’s Prayer in the Bible? Well, there isn’t one mentioned; it is only implied. The basis of the Sinner’s Prayer comes from Romans 10:9-10. “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If you say the following prayer and mean it with all your heart; along with repenting of your sins (asking for forgiveness), we believe that you will be saved and be born again. You may be wondering, “What happens next?” First, you will need to get into a bible-based church and study God’s Word. Once you find a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live; for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved. Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart, we believe that there is a great possibility that you just got saved and are born again. You may ask, “Now that I am saved, what is next?” First of all, you need to get into a bible-based church, and study God’s Word. Once you have found a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
Take these easy steps to be saved: Realize you are a sinner. “There is no person without sin. None!” (Romans 3:10). “All people have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory.” (Romans 3:23). Realize you cannot save yourself. “We are all dirty with sin. Even our good works are not pure. They are like blood-stained rags.” (Isaiah 64:6). “He saved us because of His mercy (love), not because of any good things we did.” (Titus 3:5). Realize that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins. “Christ carried our sins in his body on the cross. He did this so that we would stop living for sin and live for what is right.” (1 Peter 2:24). “Jesus is the one who loves us. And Jesus is the One who made us free from our sins with his blood (death).” (Revelation 1:5). Simply by faith receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. “Some people did accept Him. They believed in Him. He gave something to those people who believed. He gave them the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12). “…Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and all these people from your house.” (Acts 16:30-31). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
