Heaven? or not...figure it out here
Saved?..Unsaved?...figure it out here. : ) Most important page
Hi Guys/ladies....I'm writing this page for my wood buddies that I've met on Facebook and anyone else who happens along who might want to know what happens after they die...don't we all? : ) It's a heavy subject..we're all gonna "go" one of these days..problem is we don't know when. Could be years or seconds. But, being an old "Bible Thumper".....let me tell ya the way I see it. You don't have to agree....that's okay. It might be simplistic if you're a theologian, but I'm a simple guy headed to Heaven someday. Might not be too long considering the state of the earth....plus, I'm old. : )
The Gospel of Jesus is made for me, you, anyone.
Okay, some basic truths as I see 'em....agree or not...no problem.
We are spiritual beings. There is more to our life than to be born/eat/sleep/die. Our spirit lives forever.
There is such a thing as Good and evil.
God is Good...Satan is evil. (See, I told ya it was gonna be simple)
God who created us wants what is good for us and wants us to go to Heaven when we die.
Satan...not so much....you may have seen the bumper sticker: After Death, Smoking or non-Smoking. You get the idea? If not, there's the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth thing...not good. You're gonna want to avoid that.
God has a Son, Jesus Christ....He actually walked on Earth...a line from the Bible here: "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him would be saved. See? that's why he came, not to make it tough on you or keep you from having "fun".
We're not nice people in our natural state...I don't care what your Gramma said. You're a sinner...we all are. We're born that way and even if we're "good"........that's not enough to get into Heaven. More Bible words: "It is not by works alone that you are saved but by the grace of God." Grace...meaning it's a gift, a favor, something that you didn't earn.
So....when there's a gift, there's a giver. In this case, God gave the gift of salvation (life/eternity) in Heaven and He did this by sacrificing His Son, Jesus Christ on the cross many years ago. It really did happen folks....you can read about it in many books besides the Bible. Here are more Bible words that you may/may not remember from Sunday School: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life". Yay...sounds like a good thing to me. : )
There ya got it Folks, Believe and be saved. But "Believe" doesn't mean to just acknowledge that He came/died/was raised again but to actually accept that Jesus died for you, has forgiven you, and that you can live forever in Heaven with Him. A good thing folks....especially considering the alternative...remember the "smoking" reference above?
About getting "saved"....it's not really hard and you can do it right here but you really should/oughtta read the verses on my Witnessing Page to see what the Bible says...not my paraphrases above. After you've read them, if you want to accept Jesus as your personal Savior...highly recommended....here's a prayer that you can say now. Note: no one's watching/listening/or judging you here...all up to you.
Here's the Prayer:
Jesus, I confess that I'm a sinner and I'm sorry for the sins in my life. I ask you to forgive me and to cleanse my heart with the blood of Jesus. I give you my life and accept you as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart and life and help me to always live for you. Amen.
That's it guys/gals....I told you it was easy. There is more to learn and experience in the Christian life but you've got lots of time....your Eternity in a good place begins now. Congrats : )
Let me know if you prayed the prayer....I'll look for you "up there". : ) Use the Contact Form below.
