MAKING PEACE WITH GOD
Are you ready to Pass from Death to Life?
God desires to pardon you – before it’s too late. Jesus beckons you to “Come unto me” — while you can (Matthew 11:28-30).
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
GOD sees all sin and will either forgive or condemn each and every sinner (John 3:36; 5:23-27). It’s only if the sinner goes to the LORD – not religion, but Jesus – that the Savior will forgive his sins. Otherwise, the LORD shall be justified that the sinner will pay for his own sins consciously, eternally in hell – all for rejecting the full, perfect payment of Christ’s precious blood that was shed on that cross for the sins of the whole world!
Those who are only 99.9% sure they are going to Heaven, are as sure for eternal hell as if they were already there. Today is your day to give your life to Jesus, friend ….. don’t wait another minute. You are not here listening to, reading this message by accident! God is leading you to Himself. He loves you.
The most astounding event of human history occurred when this man, Jesus Christ, died on a Roman cross. When He died, an untimely darkness covered the land at 3 p.m. and an earthquake occurred as He took His final breath. This man called Jesus was crucified. He was then buried in a tomb. 3 days later He was raised from the dead! Here’s why He died:
“But your iniquities (sins) have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2
God is holy and our sins separate us from Him. We have all broken God’s laws by lying, dishonoring our parents, cheating, hating, adultery, committing a sex act in our mind with someone we are not married to, fornication, stealing, coveting, taking His holy name in vain, etc. These are all sins against God and we are all guilty. You are personally and fully guilty of sinning against Your Maker, who is the Judge of your eternal soul. Committing any single one of these sins makes us guilty of breaking the whole law and worthy of death.
Divine justice demands that our violations be punished. Because we are guilty of breaking God’s holy law, we deserve to be fairly repaid for our offenses. God doesn’t want us to be punished in hell forever though, so He sent His Son to pay the debt for us, so we would not have to pay for our own sins in eternal hell as we clearly deserve, but rather live now and forever with Him. What love!
At the end of a perfect (sinless) life, Christ carried the very cross He was to be nailed to. His infinite love for you, along with the nails driven through His hands and feet, held Him to that cross as He agonized for 6 hours in pain – to pay for your sins. He was crucified to make peace between God and man. The Son of God bridged the gap that sin had caused. This wonderful man named Jesus, chose to shed His life blood (die – in excruciating pain) for you rather than live without you. He loves you.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Christ died to fully pay for the sins of the human race (John 19:30). God loves us and wants us to experience relationship with Him, now and forever (John 17:3). Friend, who else has ever died for you but Jesus, the Good Shepherd?
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly (that’s you).” Romans 5:6
Jesus Christ bears those scars in His holy hands and feet which prove how much He loves you (Romans 5:6-9; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; 1 John 3:16). No one else ever died for your sins on a cruel cross – to buy you back to Himself. He “gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:6).
“Christ Jesus came into the world to save (rescue) sinners.” 1 Timothy 1:15
No religion or religious figure can forgive your sins or save your soul from hell (no matter what they claim). Jesus didn’t come to start a religion but rather to establish His eternal kingdom in the hearts of men, granting them a relationship with God. Jesus Christ is the only One who bears nail-scarred hands and feet for your sins. He is the only way to God and your only hope.
“For there is ONE God, and ONE mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5 The Son of God died and rose again to take away all your sins. He was the only One qualified for the job and He is the only One worthy of your worship. Peace With God Happens When We Meet the Prince of Peace.
It is by no accident you are reading this message. This is your moment in history to be saved. Praying and doing good deeds and going to church will save no person from eternal punishment – “For by grace (undeserved favor) are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) Only the good work of Christ shedding His sinless blood on the cross for you will save the soul as one repents before a holy and righteous God and Judge. If you are going to get right with the LORD and go to Heaven, there must be a moment of reckoning. Now is your time to be saved. No one will ever through a life of good works earn God’s favor. There must of necessity be that divinely-defining moment when you lay your whole life/being/existence into His perfect, holy hands. Are you willing right this moment to admit you have sinned against God and to receive His forgiveness and free gift of eternal life?
“Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Acts 16:30-31
“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2
Your Prayer to God … You must honestly admit your sins and receive Christ…
Apply His holy blood to your life so that you may be saved, forgiven, and live eternally with Him. You must completely turn your life over to Him in repentance and faith. Now, pray the following prayer to God with all that is within you, from your heart and out loud:…. Dear heavenly Father, right now, if never before, I come to You as a broken and sinful person. Thank You for sending Your only begotten Son to die in my place for my sins. Thank You Jesus for coming to this earth to die and rise again to rescue me from sin and eternal hell and to save me for Your eternal glory. Right this moment, if never before, I receive You LORD Jesus. Come in and take over my whole life. I am all Yours and You are all mine. I love You Jesus and I will follow You from this moment forward till I am with You in Heaven forever! Please use me to help others know You dear LORD. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
