This message may be called a road sign of
warning. Some may look at a sign that
reads—THE BRIDGE IS OUT, and say, "Oh,
someone is just trying to scare us into taking
another road; let’s go on the same
way." They go on and plunge to their
death. The sign was not meant to scare people,
but to warn them of impending danger. The sign
was put there, because someone cared and
didn’t want others to perish.
God wants you to know, WHEN YOU SEE THESE
THINGS COME TO PASS (the prophecies from the
Bible in this message), KNOW YE THAT THE
KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH AT HAND-Lk 21:31.
Will Russia and some Arab nations invade
Will the U.S.A. become involved in this war?
Will 1/4th of the world’s population die?
Will there be a one-world system or global
Will diseases increase such as AIDS? Yes.
Did you know the Bible tells us about what is
IS GOING ON?
People have said the end was near many times
in the past—true. But did you know the Bible
shows us no prophecy of the latter days meant
anything until Israel was reborn into a
nation? Did you know God’s Word indicates to
us a generation would not pass from Israel’s
rebirth, till all be fulfilled (which includes
the Rapture, the Tribulation, and Jesus
Christ’s return)? A Jewish generation can be
figured from the age of 20.
Many people have been preaching about the
latter days of the end times in churches, on
radio, TV, and through books and magazines.
Some include Billy Graham, Hal Lindsey, Rex
Humbard, Ray Brubaker, John Hagee, David
Breese, Zola Levitt, Jack Van Impe, and Peter
Lalonde, just to mention a few. Some people
who do not know the Bible can sense something
is about to happen. To them that understand
the Bible, no explanation is needed. To them
that are prideful, self-centered, that love
this world, that despise God’s correction,
that are contentious and seeking the praise of
men rather than of God, no explanation is
possible-ref Dan 12:4, 10; Mt 24:37, 39.
It has been said that it is virtually
impossible for anyone to make 11 straight
predictions, 2000 years into the future. There
is only one chance in 8 x 10 to the 63rd
power, or 80 with 63 zeros after it that such
a thing could be done. If such a set of
predictions existed, it would have to be the
Word of God.
Consider, could you write eleven straight
predictions that would take place in the year
4000 A.D.? Include the rebirth of a specific
nation and exactly how it would be reborn.
Include specific nations that would exist and
certain nations that would be allied together,
and the exact size of a nation’s army.
Include what the people and church would be
like. Also include the names of actual cities
and name certain crops and fruit trees that
would exist. Do eleven straight prophecies and
be exactly correct on every single one. The
Bible not only does this eleven times, but
hundreds of times with absolute, perfect
accuracy. If this is so, even the most
skeptical person (that is truthful) would have
to agree that there is indeed a God and the
Bible has to be His Word. 2 Pet
1:20,21-KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT NO PROPHECY
OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE
INTERPRETATION. FOR THE PROPHECY CAME NOT IN
OLD TIME BY THE WILL OF MAN: BUT HOLY MEN OF
GOD SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY
GHOST. O FOOLS, AND SLOW OF HEART TO BELIEVE
ALL THAT THE PROPHETS HAVE SPOKEN-Lk 24:25.
However, believing there is a God and
acknowledging the Bible is the Word of God
does not save a person. A person needs to
admit they are a sinner, repent, and receive
Jesus Christ as their only hope of being
saved. This is done by faith.
Let's prove the Bible is true and we are
nearing the end of the last generation before
1. The Jewish people would be scattered
worldwide; yet Israel would become a nation
again after a long time and at a time the
Bible calls the "latter days"-ref
Isa 66:8; Mic 5:3; Ezek 38:8. Against what
appeared to be impossible odds, this prophecy
has been fulfilled. It happened as predicted
on May 14, 1948 after about 2500 years.
That’s 1 out of 1.
Note: Israel was destroyed in approximately
721 B.C. and Judah about 135 years later.
Since that time, approximately fourteen
different peoples have possessed the land of
Israel. Yet as the Bible said, the nation of
Israel would be reborn.
The rebirth of Israel was a key sign,
indicating we had entered a time period called
the "latter days." It was the
beginning of a countdown leading to the
Tribulation and culminating with the Battle of
Armageddon and the return of Jesus immediately
after. Along with the fulfillment of this
crucial event are over 360 prophecies that
would all come together, so we might recognize
that the Tribulation is very close at hand.
Some of these are listed here.
Yet the Bible foretells that most people would
not believe these things, despite the
overwhelming evidence of the signs from
God’s Word being fulfilled and the
incredible rebirth of Israel happening exactly
as predicted. As people refused to believe the
flood was coming in Noah’s time, so people
today willingly choose to disregard the signs
of the times.
2. Israel shall be brought forth in one day,
at once-ref Isa 66:8. Prophecy
fulfilled-May 14, 1948. That’s 2 out of 2.
Note: On Nov. 29, 1947, the General Assembly
of the U.N. approved a resolution calling for
the establishment of a Jewish state in
Palestine. On the morning of May 14, 1948 (the
last day of the British mandate), a meeting of
the People’s Council took place in Israel to
decide on the name of the state and to
finalize the declaration. At precisely 4pm,
the proclamation ceremony began at the Tel
Aviv museum. The 979 Hebrew words of the
Scroll of Independence were read. All stood,
and the scroll was adopted. The notorious
White Paper, issued by the British in 1930
restricting Jewish immigration, was declared
null and void. Members of the People’s
Council signed the proclamation. David
Ben-Gurion rapped his gavel, declaring,
"The State of Israel is established. This
meeting is ended." Israel was brought
forth as a nation in one day, at once, exactly
as predicted. At midnight, the British
soldiers and high commissioner would leave.
President Truman was swift in announcing U.S.
recognition of Israel. The following morning,
on May 15, Israel was under armed attack by
the Egyptians, Syrians, Lebanese, Jordanians,
3. Israel would be brought forth (or reborn)
"out of the nations"-Ezek 38:8.
Prophecy fulfilled-May 14, 1948. That’s 3
out of 3.
Note: As previously stated, on Nov. 29, 1947,
the General Assembly of the "United
Nations" approved a resolution calling
for the establishment of a Jewish state in
Palestine. This prophecy was perfectly
fulfilled. Consider, for centuries the land of
Israel had been occupied by many nations.
Israel was "brought forth out of the
nations"—the children of Israel from
many nations have been returning to their
4. Israel must regain the city of Jerusalem-Joel
2:32; Isa 28:14; Ezek 22:19. This happened
just as predicted in 1967. That’s 4 out of
Note: The Bible gives us two methods so we
would know the time we are in. One is by
Israel’s rebirth. The other, by a precise
line of events that would all come together at
one time. Israel was reborn on May 14th, 1948.
The Bible indicates that from Israel’s
rebirth a generation would not pass till all
be fulfilled. A Jewish generation can be
figured from the age of 20. We are not setting
any date; however, it seems clear from
Israel’s rebirth and the signs of the
times— that we are living in the generation
in which the Rapture and Tribulation will come
and catch most people by surprise. Are you
5. The Christian church at the time of the end
would be lukewarm, neither cold nor hot for
Jesus. Prophecy fulfilled. That’s 5 out
Note: God will spew them out. Many ministers
and people that call themselves a Christian
will not be going to heaven. The Bible tells
us—you have acquired wealth, but your true
condition is wretched, miserable, poor, blind,
and naked and you don’t know it-Rev 3:14-22.
This is today’s church. Most preachers use
little Scripture, but lots of worldly stories.
Many sing a great deal, but put little
emphasis on repentance, obeying, serving, and
fearing God, on the fruits of the Spirit,
Bible prophecy, water baptism by immersion,
and studying your Bible faithfully every day.
Many are only entertainment centers that teach
what their members want to hear. Many
(so-called Christians) are so lukewarm or
dead, they don’t even bring their Bibles
with them to the house of God. Some famous
ministers and Bible schools think this is the
best church age ever, yet the Bible clearly
shows it is the worst and most deceived.
6. The Bible gives us over 50 descriptions
about the people at the time of the end. These
fit the people of today perfectly, but did not
fit the people of fifty years ago. Here are
A. Some would depart from the faith and go
into devil worship-1 Tim 4:1. This is
perfect. Reportedly in Great Britain alone,
there are about 35,000 professing witches.
B. People would mock about the last days
and not believe-2 Pe 3:3; Jude 18.
C. People would become lovers of themselves-2
Tim 3:1,2. Remember the TV
commercials—"I do it for me"?
D. People would be disobeying their parents-2
E. People would be grateful for nothing-2
F. Homosexuality would increase-Lk
17:28,30; ref Gen 19:5; Ro 1:24,26,27.
G. People would be without self-control in
sex-2 Tim 3:1,2,6; Rev 9:21, Lk 17:28,30;
Jude 7. Is this not the great sex generation?
H. People would love pleasures more than
God-2 Tim 3:1,2,4. This is true. Shall we
go on a picnic, watch football, or sleep.
Church?—we can go another time. Our American
motto "In God we trust" has become a
joke. Remember, these were all predicted
centuries ago as part of the signs that we are
at the time of the end.
I. People would be taking drugs-Rev
9:21. The Greek word for sorceries, in Rev
9:21, means pharmaceuticals or drugs. God’s
Word is 100% right on every one. That’s 6
out of 6. How could you have any doubts at
this point? Note: Fifty years ago, many people
seldom locked their doors at night. They could
leave their keys in their car. Merchants could
leave their merchandise on the sidewalk
without guards, and there was little or no
profanity on television, radio, or in the
movies. One of the biggest problems in public
school was gum chewing. Those days are long
7. There would be weapons that could destroy
the world-Mk 13:20; Rev 6:8; Rev 9:18;
Zech 14:8,12. Incredibly, this prophecy was
written in the days of spears and arrows, yet
today it is true. That’s 7 out of 7.
Note: It is estimated that the combined
nuclear arsenals of the USA and Russia (as of
the year 2000) could kill every living thing
on earth 6 times over.
8. There would be an increase in earthquakes-Mt
24:2,3,7; Mk 13:8; Lk 21:11. This prophecy is
correct. That’s 8 out of 8.
Note: Research from the U.S. Geological
Survey, National Earthquake Information Center
reveals that in 1986, the total number of
earthquakes was 12,718. In 1990, it was
16,612. In 1994, it was 19,371. This will
culminate during the Battle of Armageddon,
AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS. At that
time, there will be an earthquake that will
shake the world. The cities of the nations
will fall. Every island will flee away.
9. The Gospel must be published in all the
world-Mk 13:10. This seemingly impossible
prophecy was written when there was no
printing press, but today it is true. That's 9
out of 9.
Note: In this last generation, to our
knowledge, the Gospel is being published (or
is about to be published) in the primary
language of every nation of the world or
"among all nations." In addition,
the Gospel is available by short-wave radio
nearly everywhere in the world.
10. In the "latter days" when Israel
was once again a nation, there would be a
great military power to the extreme north of
Israel in the land of Magog (which is
modern-day Russia)-Ezek 38:2-4,8,15,16.
Incredible. That’s 10 out of 10.
Note: How could the Bible have foretold the
location of this nation, facts about its
military, and even the time period it would
come to pass? As was already said in Lk
24:25-O FOOLS, AND SLOW OF HEART TO BELIEVE
ALL THAT THE PROPHETS HAVE SPOKEN.
Here briefly are three more prophecies out of
the 365 that exist, regarding this latter day
11. There would be a nation to the far east
of Israel, to the end of the earth. This
nation would have an army of 200 million.
This is astounding. How could the Bible have
told the location of a nation and given such a
huge figure regarding the size of its army
nearly 2000 years ago? China has boasted that
they could field an army of this exact figure.
That’s 11 out of 11. We have just reached
the point that seemed impossible—11 perfect
predictions made thousands of years ago—with
God nothing is impossible. Certainly, at this
point, even the biggest skeptic should see the
Bible is true, there is a God, and we are
nearing the time of the end.
12. The currency in Israel at the time of the
end would be the shekel. The currency had
been the Israeli pound until June 1980, when
it was changed to the shekel. How could the
Bible have known this, except that it is the
Word of God? That’s 12 out of 12.
13. There would be an economic alliance of the
nations of the Old Roman Empire. It would
have a military capability. This is an exact
description of the European Economic Community
today (the EEC), which has already adopted the
one-currency system for many of their member
nations. It is written, IN THE DAYS OF THESE
KINGS (these nations, which is now) SHALL THE
GOD OF HEAVEN SET UP A KINGDOM-Dan 2:44.
That’s 13 out of 13.
About 24 prophecies in 13 sets have been
given, all perfect and all written centuries
ago. The chance that any person could do this
2000 years into the future is not possible.
The Bible is the Word of God, and we have just
proved it. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Repent and get baptized by full immersion.
Read and obey the Gospel. God loves you. He is
not willing that any should perish, yet many
do. The Rapture is close. Most people are not
ready and will not be taken. However,
"YOU" cannot say you did not know.
Know and understand, Mt 16:26-WHAT IS A MAN
PROFITED, IF HE SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD,
AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL? OR WHAT SHALL A MAN
GIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR HIS SOUL?
HAPPENS NEXT? THE RAPTURE AND TRIBULATION
RAPTURE is a term used to describe the
removal from the earth of all living people
that have been born-again as evidenced by
their fruits. Just prior to the Tribulation
coming about, the Rapture will take place. The
number that will be raptured will be far fewer
than most people might think. The Bible
unmistakably portrays the raptured saints in
heaven before the throne of God, prior to the
Antichrist coming forth and the Tribulation
beginning. The Scripture tells us, in the
twinkling of an eye, we shall be changed and
be with Jesus in the air. 1 Cor 15:51,52-WE
SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE
CHANGED, IN A MOMENT IN THE TWINKLING OF AN
EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP: FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL
SOUND; 1 Thes 4:16,17-AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST
SHALL RISE FIRST, THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND
REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM
IN THE CLOUDS. We may be asleep, immediately
we will be with Jesus. All the unbelievers,
the lukewarm Christians, and those that did
not obey the Gospel will be left to face the
dreadful Tribulation. (For an in-depth study
of the Rapture, click here <Bible_Prophecy/Rapture.htm>.)
THE TRIBULATION is the worst time in
history since man has been on the earth.
Immediately following the Rapture, the man of
sin (called the Antichrist) comes forth and
assumes control of the EEC. He can be expected
to be very charismatic and brilliant. He
confirms a treaty with Israel and others,
which begins the Tribulation.
It is a 7 year period, but the Lord may have
shortened the first 3 1/2 years in some
way-ref Mk 13:20; Ro 9:28. We are not setting
a date; however, we are now living in that
generation in which this will happen. Hate,
murder, thefts, rape, and every imaginable
form of evil will abound. During this horrible
period of God’s wrath, Russia, Iran, and
other nations will come against Israel. The
USA becomes involved. One-fourth of the
world’s population will die. Many of the
dead will be from the USA, as well as Russia.
One-third of trees are burned up. All green
grass is burned up. One-third of the sea will
become blood. One-third of the creatures in
the sea will die. One-third of the ships are
destroyed. One-third of the waters become
wormwood (or poisoned, or radioactive).
Massive famines, increased earthquakes, and
more diseases will happen as birth pangs of a
woman. Those left alive will have
opportunities to receive Jesus through the
preaching of 144,000 male, virgin Jews;
however, death by decapitation lies ahead for
most that put their trust in Jesus, unless
they renounce their faith. There will also be
many false Christs and false prophets. A
one-world, false religion that God calls
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF
HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH will
increase. This religion has existed for
hundreds of years and exists today. The
nations of the world have become intoxicated
with her false teachings. The temple in
Jerusalem will be rebuilt.
About 3½ years from the end of the
Tribulation, the Antichrist (also called the
beast) is killed with a wound in the head by a
weapon, but his deadly wound will be healed.
He will come back to life. He then declares
himself to be God and moves into the temple in
Jerusalem. A false prophet appears that will
do great wonders. The sacrifices at the temple
will be stopped. The abomination of desolation
occurs. An image of the Antichrist will be set
on a wing of the temple. Those that refuse to
worship it will be beheaded. The elect
born-again Jews now flee for their lives to a
place where God will hide them and take care
of them during the last three and a half
years. Power is given to the Antichrist over
all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. All
that dwell on the earth shall worship the
Antichrist, whose names are not written in the
Lamb's book of life. During these last three
and a half years (called the Great
Tribulation), world conditions will continue
to worsen. A one-world system will exist. The
Antichrist shall make war against the saints
and will overcome them. People will be
required to take the mark of the Antichrist or
the number of his name (666) in or on their
forehead or right hand. If they, refuse they
cannot buy or sell.
Two prophets of God will appear. One of them
is Elijah. Their ministry lasts 1260 days.
They warn people not to take the mark or
worship the image. There is no forgiveness
from God afterward for those that do. They
will go to the eternal lake of fire. These two
witnesses have the power to shut up heaven so
that it does not rain. They have the power to
bring all kinds of plagues on the earth.
Multitudes will be slain for the Word of God.
Some type of locusts will sting men with a
sting like a scorpion. It will be so bad that
men will seek death and shall not find it.
There will be terrible sores upon men. The
rivers and fountains will become blood. Men
will be scorched with great heat. Earthquakes
and diseases continue to get worse and worse.
Two hundred million troops will march to
Israel from the east and cross the dried up
Euphrates River. One-third more of the
earth’s population will be killed. After the
1260 days, the two prophets of God will be
killed. People will rejoice, but then after
three and a half days, they will arise and
ascend up to heaven as others watch. Great
fear falls on those that see this. Men will be
so terrified that their hearts will fail, as
they consider what is about to happen.
Multitudes will hide in the rocks and say,
"FALL ON US AND HIDE US FROM...HIM
(Jesus)…FOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS
COME; AND WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION of
those days, the Battle of Armageddon explodes.
It lasts one day. The kings and armies of the
earth are gathered to make war against Jesus.
Jesus Christ returns as the King of kings and
Lord of lords with all His saints. If He had
not returned exactly when He did, there should
be no life left on earth. The Antichrist and
false prophet are cast alive into the lake of
fire. Satan is chained for one thousand years,
so he can deceive the nations no longer till
the thousand years be fulfilled. Every force
of nature is likely to be unleashed at once,
including killer tornadoes, hurricanes, tidal
waves, lightning encircling the earth, and the
biggest earthquake in mankind’s history. The
cities and the mountains of the world will
crumble. The Bible tells that every island
fled away. The mountains were not found. There
is great hail out of heaven, every stone about
the weight of 70 to l00 pounds. The earth will
move out of its place. At the end of that one
day, there are so few people left alive that a
child could list them.
This may all sound like a fairy tale, but
remember—from Israel’s rebirth to the
Tribulation, there are about 365 prophecies.
Incredibly, nearly all have now been
fulfilled. In addition, there are over 10,000
prophecies in the Bible and every one up to
this time has come true without a single
exception. THE FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART
THERE IS NO GOD-Ps 14:1.
ARE YOU READY TO MEET JESUS?
We have proven that the Bible is God's Word.
Now you are faced with a decision. Will you
ignore what you have learned, or will you
surrender your life to Jesus? If you had a
sudden heart attack or the Rapture came in the
next five minutes, are you sure you are ready
to meet God? You may say, "I believe
I’m a good person." The Bible says all
of your righteous deeds ARE AS FILTHY RAGS.
You may be religious and go to church, but if
you died right now—you would perish to hell.
Why? Because you have not been born-again. You
may say, "Well my church never preaches
like this." Will you trust your religion
or what the Bible says? If you choose not to
accept God’s way to enter heaven, then you
are choosing eternal separation from God.
YOU MAY ASK, WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO? FOUR
1. You must admit that you are a sinner. The
Bible tells us, ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT
OF THE GLORY OF GOD. THE WAGES OF SIN IS
2. Be willing to change, to forsake all sin,
to humble yourself and live for Jesus. Repent.
Be willing to ask God for His help to make
that change. The Bible tells us, EXCEPT YE
REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH.
WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE
WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD. Jesus tells us, HE
THAT IS NOT WITH ME IS AGAINST ME.
3. Believe in your heart Jesus Christ is
God’s only begotten Son, God Who came to
this earth in human form. Believe He died for
your sins. It is written, THERE IS NONE OTHER
NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE
MUST BE SAVED. If you are caught robbing a
bank, you have to go to jail. Jesus never
sinned. When He died on the cross, He did not
die for the things He did. He died to pay your
4. Ask for forgiveness. Ask for God’s mercy.
By faith receive Jesus Christ as your only
hope of salvation. Afterwards, be willing to
get baptized by full immersion in the name of
the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Nicodemus was considered a very religious man
in the Bible; however, in Jn 3:3, Jesus tells
him it is not enough. You MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
You must ask for God’s forgiveness. You must
confess Him publicly. Whenever Jesus called
someone, He did it publicly. He said in Mt
10:32-WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL CONFESS ME
BEFORE MEN, HIM WILL I CONFESS ALSO BEFORE MY
FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN. As it is also
written, BE READY ALWAYS TO GIVE AN ANSWER TO
EVERY MAN THAT ASKETH YOU A REASON OF THE HOPE
THAT IS IN YOU WITH MEEKNESS AND FEAR-1 Pe
I am going to ask you to make that decision
for Jesus right now. You need to repent and
ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Please
kneel right where you are. Can you sense God
calling you right now? Is your heart pounding?
You may have been baptized or confirmed, but
something inside you is saying, "Be
sure." Perhaps you have strayed from God
and need to rededicate your life to Jesus now.
Would you rather go to be with God or the lake
of fire? You have that choice right now. God
wants you to receive the gift of eternal life.
Are you sure there is not a sin, there is
nothing that stands between you and God? But
you may know there is. The Bible tells us
THERE IS A WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN,
BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH.
Jesus wants you to KNOW HIM, to have a
personal relationship with Him. It’s not a
matter of whether you think you know Jesus,
but does Jesus know you?
Right now, kneel and pray this prayer out
loud, and mean it with all your heart.
JESUS, I AM A SINNER. I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE
SON OF GOD AND DIED FOR MY SINS ON THE CROSS.
FORGIVE ALL OF MY SINS. JESUS, I REPENT. I ASK
YOU TO HAVE MERCY ON ME, A SINNER, AND COME
INTO MY LIFE. GIVE ME YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR
POWER. HELP ME TO FOLLOW AND OBEY YOUR
COMMANDMENTS, AND TO LIVE FOR YOU. JESUS, I
GIVE YOU MY LIFE. THANK YOU FOR HEARING MY
PRAYER. THANK YOU FOR COMING INTO MY LIFE. I
ASK IT IN THE NAME OF MY LORD AND SAVIOR,
JESUS CHRIST. AMEN.
YOU JUST SAID THAT PRAYER AND MEANT IT
We recommend you now read your Bible every day
faithfully—5 or more chapters a day. Begin
with the Gospel of John and read it through
three times. Next go to Matthew and read the
New Testament through three times. Then begin
reading the entire Bible in order, beginning
with Genesis. As God opens up His Word to you,
obey it. Be a doer of the Word and not a
hearer only, deceiving yourself-ref Ja 1:22.
As you are faithful, God will open your
understanding of His Word more and more.
Find a good Bible-teaching church that teaches
God’s Word, sound doctrine, Bible prophecy
and the Revelation, not just stories about
worldly things. Attend often and get baptized.
Tell others that Jesus is your only hope of
salvation. If you’ve just said that prayer
and committed your life to Jesus, please
e-mail us and let us know. We would like to
pray for you and send you some free
FINAL NOTE ON SALVATION
Many people are positive that they are saved.
They base this on emotion. They may make
certain comments, such as, "I am a good
person. I do what is right. I’m not as bad
as that person. I know that I am saved. I
believe God is with me. I know the Holy Spirit
is inside of me. I am a preacher, an elder, a
prophet, or a preacher’s wife. I have
prayed, and God answered my prayer. I believe
in God. God did this or that for me. I sing in
the choir. I go to church. I praise and
worship God. I give my money to the church. I
was baptized." While all of this sounds
very nice, it is not based on biblical
knowledge. Many that are now in hell have said
such things. The Pharisees in the New
Testament also could have said many of these
things, but Jesus showed them clearly they
were not saved.
If you have received Jesus Christ, God’s
only begotten Son, as your Lord and Savior, it
is because God in His mercy has opened your
understanding. As it is written, FOR BY GRACE
ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF
YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF
WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST. FOR WE ARE
HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS UNTO
GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD HATH BEFORE ORDAINED
THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM-Eph 2:8-10.
"After" we believe on Jesus Christ,
"after" we have repented of our
sins, we are commanded to be baptized by full
immersion in the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. It is written,
HE THAT BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE
SAVED; BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE
DAMNED-Mk 16:16. Note, believing on Jesus
comes "before" water baptism. Infant
baptism or any baptism prior to repenting and
believing on Jesus has no meaning. You cannot
be baptized into One on Whom you do not
believe. It is written, FOR AS MANY OF YOU AS
HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE PUT ON
CHRIST-Gal 3:27. Water baptism is by full
immersion <Doctrines/Baptism.htm>. As it
is written, BURIED WITH HIM (with Jesus) IN
BAPTISM (or buried in the water)-Col 2:12, ref
Ro 6:4. Jesus commanded, GO YE THEREFORE, AND
TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME
OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY
GHOST: TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS
WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU: AND, LO, I AM
WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE
WORLD. AMEN-Mt 28:19,20.
Surrender means "you give up." You
stop putting your will before God’s will.
You allow Jesus (God’s Word) to reign over
you. You submit to Jesus and let Him become
the Lord of your life.
If you have not humbled yourself, and totally
surrendered to Jesus, and become as a little
child (ref Mt 18:3), and continued steadfast
in the faith, I would suggest that NOW IS THE
ACCEPTED TIME; BEHOLD, NOW IS THE DAY OF
SALVATION-2 Cor 6:2. Please submit to God, say
the prayer, and mean it with all of your
heart. God loves YOU and cares.
I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH TO RECORD THIS DAY
AGAINST YOU, THAT I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE
AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING: THEREFORE
CHOOSE LIFE, THAT…THOU…MAY LIVE -Deut
