Thank the Lord that we don’t have to work our way to Heaven, and that our salvation is a free gift from God. “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.”(Ephesians 2:8,9). “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” (Romans 11:6). Millions of believers if not billions are under this false teaching worrying if they died would their good works out weigh their bad works so that they might have a chance to go to Heaven and not hell ! What a bondage of fear. “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Hebrews 2:14). You don’t have to live in fear of death like so many do. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). Just knowing this makes it more than worth it all. We just need to work on our relationship with Jesus, and lay up treasures in Heaven by working on getting souls saved. Amen? I once thought, that people in Heaven could not witness and get people saved, and that only we who are alive on earth could do that. The Lord showed me that this idea was not true, because what about all the people that never had a true Christian witness, and a chance to receive Jesus as their Saviour and be saved? Even Jesus went and, “preached unto the spirits in prison;” (1Peter 3:19b) Jesus said, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” (John 15:22). In other words people that haven’t heard about Jesus and had a chance to get saved, will have a chance when they die, and who is going to witness to them but the people who are in Heaven, and the Angels, many of whom have been the saved people here on earth, our departed brothers and sisters. They are going to be very busy in Heaven witnessing to the people that we failed to reach here on earth. “The grace of our God which bringeth Salvation hath appeared unto all men.” (Titus 2:11). WOW WHAT A REVELATION OF TRUTH !!! THANK YOU JESUS !!! We can never make a sacrifice compared to what Jesus has done for us. You can’t out give God. He gave his only begotten Son for you and me.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
