1. Would you state that He has never existed? Are you going to say that He was an outstanding individual, and a gentleman who had always performed great deeds? That He performed the same type of marvelous things that others performed while He was present upon this earth therefore, others did the same thing that Christ had done.

Will you say that Christ's message was not relevant to Israel and that it presently has very little to do with the Body of Christ in this Age? Or that no one can possibly be enlightened by His Word?

2. The truth is, no one's decisions should be based on what their friends or family members do or do not say regarding their own particular doctrine! Neither should one rely on his own personal concepts concerning the hereafter. What folks think in the final analysis doesn't really matter.

The most important thing is what will govern ones very soul in the eternity to come, and what the Word of God teaches. Also, how will your past life's works, standards and actions stand up according to what the Scriptures teach? Naturally this will have a great deal to do with the final outcome of your own personal destiny and how it will be determined.

3. Anyone can, if they choose, simply ignore the Lord Jesus and the Scriptures that He had inspired to be written in our Bible. Many will proceed on through life doing their own thing, trying to settle their own problems. They will work to provide a reasonable income for their family and try to have a nest egg invested for future retirement. The question is, what is going to follow after one's life has been lived? What then?

What is going to take place when your soul finally leaves your body at the time of your death? When we depart this life, our Bible explains the fact that we will live throughout all eternity, whether we live with Christ in the Heavenlies, or with Satan in the Lake of Fire. This is a question that every human being must answer for themselves! What is your answer?

4. There is absolutely no one on this earth including your parents, brothers, sisters or other relatives and friends that can keep you from taking the journey to one of those two places! It must be you yourself that makes the choice! The point we wish to make clear is that you are never over one breath or heartbeat from eternity.

The trouble is, there is not one person on this earth who can name the precise second, minute, hour, or day that God has chosen for their personal death! Are you ready to face eternity at this very time? The Lord has said, Scripture...

5. "Precious in the sight of the lord is the death of His Saints {Psalm 116:15}" [because then they will be with Him in Heaven}. 6. "See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil {Deuteronomy 30:15}."

7. Again the question is "what are you going to do with the Lord Jesus Christ?" It certainly takes no decision on your part to go to hell. All you or I need to do to go to hell is to do nothing concerning our salvation! However, it does take a positive decision on our part, to make Heaven our eternal dwelling place! Scripture...

8. "He that believes on Him [Christ] is not condemned: but he that does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God {John 3:18}."

9. No matter what your race is or what you are, or what kind of life you have lived up to this time, there are several basic observations in the Word of God of which you should be aware...

10. Scripture "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God {Romans 3:23}."

11. For God so loved the world [and every body in it] that He gave His only begotten Son [Christ who died on the cross] that whosoever [will] believe in Him should not perish [in the everlasting lake of fire] but [will] have everlasting life [in Heaven] {John 3:16}."

12. "Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, And shall come forth; [out of the graves] they that have done good [received Christ as their own personal Saviour] unto the resurrection of life; [everlasting life in the Heavenlies] and they that have done evil [failed and rejected Christ as their Saviour, these will be guilty of the judgment] unto the resurrection of damnation; [at the white throne judgment which will be the last judgment that takes place on this earth {John 5:28-29}."

This will be where the lost wicked people of the earth are to be judged for their degrees of punishment. Only Christ rejecters will be judged at that judgment! They then will be cast into the LAKE OF FIRE to spend eternity] Scripture...

13. " ... we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ {Romans 14:10}." This judgment will only be for Christians, it will take place one thousand years before the White Throne Judgment of the Lost. Its place in time will be some time after the resurrection of the body of Christ.

14. "At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow ... {Philippians 2:10}."

15. Right at this very minute, with plain simple faith, you can have the wonderful assurance of eternal life in Heaven. Ask yourself this question with all honesty What are you going to do with the Lord Jesus Christ? Will you accept Him as your personal Saviour, your Lord and master, or are you going to reject Him?

The basis of your decision must be made according to what the Word of God has laid down for one to become a Christian. The Lord Jesus Christ who is God the Son has said the following ... Scripture...

16. {Vs.37} "All that [God] the Father gives to Me shall come to Me; and him that comes to Me I will no wise cast out. 17. {Vs.38} For I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him that sent Me.

18. {Vs.39} And this is the Father's will which has sent Me, that of all which He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it [them] up again at the last day [at the resurrection of the Saints].

19. {Vs.40} And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which sees [knows and understands] the Son, [of God Jesus Himself] and believes on Him, may have everlasting Life: [in the Heavens] and I will raise him up at the last day [at the resurrection of the Saints] {John 6:37-40}."

20. "Verily, verily, [surely, surely], I [Christ] say unto you, He that believes on Me has everlasting life {John 6:47}." Christ is also a righteous God and a God of indignation to all those who reject Him ... Scripture...

21. "And whosoever [name] was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire {Revelation 20:15}." These words will be quoted after the white throne judgment has taken place. All Christians have their names written in the Lamb's book of everlasting life! And throughout all eternity, their names will be found in that book .

It should be understood that every one's name has been placed in the book of life. On the other hand, when folks pass on from this life as a lost Christ rejecter, their names will be removed from the book .

22. Scripture "... If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part [and name] out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in the book {Revelation 22:19}."

The Most Important Decision Of Your Life 23. Because of the fact that sin entered into this world and because the Lord God despises all sin, God the Father sent His beloved Son the Lord Jesus Christ down to this earth to take on a body of flesh. Then to later give up His life on the cross of Calvary to pay the huge price for your and my sins.

If you take the Lord Jesus by faith and place your trust in Him, your sins will have already been forgiven by Christ's death and will not count against you in the hereafter! Scripture...

24. "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [not because of your good works] it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast [glory] {Ephesians 2:8-9}."

25. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that hears My Word, and believes on Him [God the Father] that sent me [Christ] has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; [eternal punishment in the Lake of fire] but is passed from death into [eternal] life. [in the Heavens] {John 5:24},"

26. What about you? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour? Do you realize now in this very hour that you can rejoice in and know the reality of this new Christian life in Christ? Right now you can dispel the doubt that is in your mind concerning your future.

Right now you can ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart. Also, right now you can be assured of eternal life in Heaven. All of your riches here on the earth, all of your financial security, all of your material wealth, your home, and your land will all crumble into nothingness in a few years! As God has told us ... Scripture...

27. "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this [death and then] the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation {Hebrews 9:27-28}."

28. Are you willing to sacrifice an eternity with Christ in Heaven for a few years of so called good times that will lead to death and destruction? If you reject Christ as your Saviour, you will have only yourself to blame for the consequences! ... Or would you right now as you are reading these very words, like to know without a shadow of a doubt that you are on the road to Heaven.

Death is not the end of life, but actually the climactic beginning of the most wonderful existence that will ever be for the believer. A life with the Lord Jesus Christ, with friends, relatives and loved ones who have taken Christ as their Saviour. It's not a difficult thing to do.

29. People of many religions have tried to make the simple Gospel message of Christ complex. No one can get to Heaven by good works. Salvation is the gift of God to those who only ask for it and trust God for it by His Word.

For Jesus is the one who bore your sins on the cross. No matter how good you think your are, or how kind you are to others, you must realize that you cannot save yourself or be good enough by your personal merits to get to Heaven.

All of those things are great, but they mean absolutely nothing in the sight of God, because to Him, your riches are as filthy rags, "... all our righteousness are as filthy rags... {Isaiah 64:6}."

30. The Lord Jesus did not come to this earth to save good folks but to save sinners who are lost [As o people who are good, see Matthew 19:17]. He expects you to come to Him as you are, a lost sinner, recognizing your need of a Saviour.

Understanding this fact, why not bow your head right now and say this simple prayer of faith to Jesus. You may say it in your own words. It does not have to be a beautiful oratorical prayer, simply a prayer of humble contrition.

My Personal Prayer For Salvation In Christ:

31. Heavenly Father, I am aware that I am a lost sinner and that I cannot save myself by good works. I believe that you died for me and that you shed your blood for my sins. I am receiving you right now as my personal Saviour, my Lord, and my only hope for salvation. Lord be merciful to me, and save me according to the promises of your word. Please send Christ into my heart to indwell me as my Saviour, Lord and Master, Amen.

32. If you have said this prayer and meant every word of it in your heart, then you are saved. Now what you should do is to tell others about the good news of you becoming a Child of God. For this is what a new Christian is supposed to do after he is saved. Otherwise Jesus might think that you may be ashamed of Him and that you have no regard for Him as your Saviour. Scripture...

33. "Unto you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in you: let me not be ashamed ... Yes, let none that wait on you be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress with out cause {Psalm 25:1-3}."

34. "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; ... {Romans 1:16}."

35. "And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given to us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly {Romans 5:5-6}."

36. Be not you therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me [Paul] His prisoner: but be you partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel according to the power of God; Who has saved us and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel {2- Timothy 1:8-10}."

37. " Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in Heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in Heaven {Matthew 10:32-33}."

38. "If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him: If we deny Him, He will also deny us {2- Timothy 2:12}." Therefore,

39. if you have prayed the above sinners prayer and was sincere in what you said then you are saved. Please fill out the lines below...
