you ask most people how to get to heaven,
their response will be something like this:
you do more good things than
bad things, God will
probably let you into
This false idea has caused multitudes to go
to hell. There
is nothing that you can do on your own that
will erase the sins that you have committed.
That is the reason
Jesus willingly shed his sinless blood on
the cross to pay for your sins. He came to
save you from the guilt of past sins and the
power of sin over your life. You are about
to read the most important information that
you will ever read. It is called the gospel
of Jesus Christ.
The word "gospel" means "message." The
gospel is God's message to mankind. If
you will yield to the gospel, you will be
reconciled to God and you will escape
eternal damnation in hell and the lake of
fire. You will have abundant life right now
as you walk with God in spite of all the
pain and suffering that is in the world. If
you are doubtful that the Bible is true, ask
God for the faith to believe it and for help
to understand the gospel.
people refer to the gospel as "good
news" but it is only good news for those who
receive it. To those who reject the good
news, the gospel is the stench of death. . .
eternal death. Revelation 14:6-7 tells us
the message of the everlasting gospel--
God, and give glory to him;
for the hour of his judgment
is come: and worship him
that made heaven, and earth,
and the sea, and the
fountains of waters."
There is only one way
to do this--through the blood of Jesus
Christ. Repent ye and believe the gospel!

and all our righteousnesses
are as filthy rags; and we
all do fade as a leaf; and
our iniquities, like the
wind, have taken us away.
According to the above
verse, we still come up short even when we
try to do good deeds because we are not
doing them under God's authority. Doing good
deeds in your own strength and under your
own authority is an unclean thing in the
sight of God.
I never killed anybody and I'm not a dope
addict!" In God's sight you are still
spiritually undone and wicked in his sight.
You have broken the greatest commandment in
the Bible and you are as guilty as a harlot,
a whoremonger, a murderer, a thief and a
liar. What is the greatest commandment?
"Master, which is the great
commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God
with ALL thy heart, and with
ALL thy soul, and with ALL
thy mind. THIS is the first
and great commandment."
easy to see that you have broken this
commandment every day of your life. Loving
yourself and putting yourself first comes
naturally. Those who are not yet reconciled
to God do this as a matter of course.

That means if we will turn

Through the blood of Jesus,
we are to serve sin no more.
Again, the Father sent His

is God, to die in your

the third day Jesus arose
from the dead and was seen
by over 500 people (I Corin

the eternal God and Savior
who came to earth and gave

tremendous feat, He rose

ready to repent of your
sins? To repent means to
forsake your evil ways and
listen to God. All your life
you've been your own
authority concerning what is
right and what is wrong.
You've made your own
decisions while ignoring
what the Lord says in His
holy word, the Bible. You've
served yourself and not God.
To repent means that you
turn to God as your
authority. It means you can
say, "Lord everything you
say in the Bible is right.
If my feelings contradict
the Bible I am wrong. Lord I
want to live under your
authority, not my own."
And the times of this
ignorance God winked
at; but now commandeth
all men every where to
REPENT. (Acts 17:30)
...TURN TO GOD, AND DO
WORKS MEET FOR REPENTANCE.
Repentance must be from the
heart. Are you prepared to
exercise your will to live
for the Lord? Jesus said:
whosoever doth not bear his
cross, and come after me,
cannot be my disciple."
You must be willing to
give up your own authority over your life
and surrender it to Jesus Christ. If you
want to come to Jesus Christ to be saved you
must be willing to live God's way. He will
give you the strength to live for him but
you have got to be willing for him to tell
you what to do. You must turn from living in
the way that leads to death. Do you want God
to be your Father rather than your enemy? Do
you want the Lord and His holy ways? Do you
want to be delivered from the powers of
darkness you have invited into your life by
sinful living? If you do, you are ready to
come to Jesus Christ and be saved.
Jesus waits with open arms for those that
want life. The choice is yours. If you're
sick of being alienated from God, if you're
tired of what this wicked and perverse world
has to offer, if you want Jesus Christ as
Lord of your life, if you want to be
reconciled unto your Creator, if you want to
go to heaven, if you want to escape hell --
put your faith in the one who can do
something about it! Do you believe that
Jesus Christ died for you? Do you believe
that He rose from the dead? Do you repent of
your sins? Do you want to follow Jesus?
If so, repent and believe on the
Lord Jesus Christ. The only one who can save
you is the Lord Jesus Christ. You must
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be
asked, "Sirs, what MUST I do
to be SAVED?" (Acts
16:30)Paul and Silas said,
BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and thou shalt be
saved, and thy house." (Acts
If you will place your

from your sins and be born into the family
By grace are you saved,
through faith, For by grace

and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God
If you have placed your faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ you will begin your new life of
freedom and obedience to the Lord. Now you
need to (1) start reading the Bible (Authorized
King James Version of 1611--begin with
the gospels) and (2) you need to get
yourself into a Bible-believing church that
uses the King James Bible so you can get
baptized and discipled in the way of Christ.
are in the last days--the time of the
falling away from the faith of Jesus.
(See 2 Thessalonians 2:3) There are few
churches that are biblically sound to
associate with because so many deviate from
the scriptures and promote false doctrines.
Read your New Testament several times and
begin working through the Old Testament
before you consider putting yourself under
the influence of institutions that call
Once you get saved,
Satan will work to try to cause you to
encounter false doctrine. Because you are a
new born babe in the faith, you will be
prone to believe anything people tell you
about the Bible. (That is why you need to
read it for yourself everyday).
Please heed these
1. You do not need to "speak in tongues"
to show that you are saved or that you have
the Holy Spirit. These people take one or
two passages out of context and make false
doctrine out of them.
2. Water baptism is an important act of
obedience but it does not save you. If you are saved, you
will get baptized out of obedience. [Make
sure a godly person baptizes you. You are
better off being baptized by a family member
or friend in a swimming pool than by an
unproven pastor that you
do not know for
certain is godly.] Saved people are
children of obedience (Heb 5:9). The gospel
and baptism are separate--I Cor 1:17. You
are baptized in order to outwardly identify
with the death, burial and resurrection of
Jesus Christ and to symbolically show the
washing away of sins. So if you are trusting
in your baptism to save you, you are wrong.
An unrepentant sinner will go down a dry
sinner and come out a wet sinner.

whereunto even baptism doth
also now save us (not the
putting away of the filth of
the flesh, but the answer of
a good conscience toward
God,) by the resurrection of
3. Avoid the false Hebrew Roots teachers who
try to tell you that you are in disobedience
if you don't keep the sabbath days, feasts,
holy days, etc. Colossians 2:16 is clear:
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or
in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of
the new moon, or of the sabbath days.
If you have not surrendered to the Lord
Jesus Christ, I hope that you won't continue
to reject His offer of eternal life. You are
in a dangerous position. John 3:36 says,
". . . he that believeth not the Son shall
not see life; but the wrath of God abideth
will not make it into heaven on your own
"good merits" or by your own conception of
who you are and of what you think God should
be like. He always has His way--the choice
is yours to obey Jesus Christ or reject
