“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
Believing in God is simple. Nothing just appears instantly. Just like the watch on the person’s hand in the picture did not just appear on their hand, neither did the world. It did not just, “Poof,” and all of a sudden existed. Mankind, no two people have the exact same fingerprint. Of all the billions and billions of people in the world, past, present and the ones that are to come, even science points to the unexplainable and that in itself points to a Creator. Everything has to have a creator, a beginning.
So, if what we believe about God, that He is the Creator and we find what we know and believe in the Bible, then the whole Bible is true. If the whole Bible is true, then what is said about Jesus Christ is also true.
Jesus is love personified. There is a beginning to life and an end. I for one would much rather believe that there is life after death then ceasing to exist and nothing beyond. There is so much hatred in the earth, so much sickness, and sadness so, believing in Heaven is a plus! ”He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)
To have a place with all that then there has to be an opposite for those who choose not to believe in Jesus and His death on the cross and it is Hell. There has to be a prerequisite in order to keep the evil out. Heaven is for eternity, forever and ever and evil is not welcome there. In school, you do not get to move on to the next grade level if you do not pass. There are requirements in order to pass, just like heaven. So, you choose which place you want to spend eternity in, your choice. You send yourself by that choice you make here on earth and your profession of faith or lack thereof.
Jesus was beaten beyond human recognition, He was spat on, mocked, a crown of thorns placed on His head, blood running down His face and hung on a cross. He is and on earth was the sinless Son of God and He endured all that for all mankind. What part of that is hateful or racist? And what other gods will die for those he loves? Our God did, He did it for us because He knew that mankind is weak and there is a devil that tempts people who are weak to hurt others or themselves. By the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, you can have His Holy Spirit within you to help you do and live a life of love that otherwise is impossible in this world. You receive the grace of God’s love and the benefits of being a child of God, just by asking. You do not have to do anything, it is free! Free is good and you are gauranteed a home in heaven when you transition from this life into the next.
So, everything has to have a Creator, and if the Creator-God is true, then the Bible, Jesus Christ, and Heaven are also true.
Curiosity peeked but not ready to ask Him to be your Lord and Savior? Ask Him for that too, He will answer. Ask Jesus to show you the truth of Himself and help you to believe. He will.
To receive Jesus is simple as well. Just ask! “Ask and it shall be given to you.” (Matthew 7:7)
Invitation to Salvation Prayer
Dear Almighty Father in heaven, I know that I am a sinner and I ask your forgiveness of all my sins. I want to make You the Lord of my life and I want to serve You all the days of my life. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. Thank you so much for loving me and waiting on me to come to the knowledge of the truth! Thank you for my salvation. Please help me and guide me in learning your Word so I can be a light to the world. Please, Jesus come into my heart, and baptize me with Your Holy Spirit. I thank You and praise Your Holy Name and ask all this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
If you just prayed the prayer above, congratulations and welcome to the family of God! (John 1:12) “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”
You can now be assured of your eternal salvation and an eternal home in heaven. (Ephesians 1:13-14) “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of His glory.”
