Death or Life?
Do you know where you'll spend eternity?
You can find the answer here.
Take a few minutes
and you know where the journey after your earthly life is going.
The origin of all being.
Surely you have already asked yourself:
Where do I go when I die?
Is there even a god and a devil?
If yes, what do I have to do
so that afterwards I can be in heaven (the kingdom of God).
and how can I prevent that I end up in death and judged before God for my sins (lying, stealing, hate, envy, anger, etc.)?
I will only briefly address the question of whether there is a God.
Where does everything that we are and that is around us come from?
That all within a few years billions from some big bang should have arisen from nothing is a strange idea.
Matter cannot arise out of nothing by chance,
what man in his elevated form is not even able to produce himself today?
Man cannot even form a single living cell,
let alone make a blade of grass,
he would even have the necessary elements available
and would not have to create them from nothing.
This is because every matter all visible, has a spiritual origin
and our God is Spirit.
And indeed the highest and most powerful in the entire universe.
He created everything!
He is the beginning and the end.
He spoke and it was!
He only made the whole earth with the whole universe around,
so that he could finally put us humans on it,
so we can have a place to live.
And He tells us in His Word (the Bible is the Word of God)
how He created everything.
Just like us when we are expecting offspring,
to prepare everything for our species beforehand in the house,
that's how God did it.
And he did it out of love.
God not only has love, he is Love.
He loves everyone equally!
The theory of evolution has never been proven nor was the emergence of a new art of living ever contemplated.
If God had created us out of evolution, then He would have written it down in His Word like that. He certainly wouldn't have had a problem with that (God has no problems anyway).
No, the Bible says He has the first man Adam,
formed from the soil of the field
(can be read in the Bible in the 1st Book of Moses Chapter 2 Verse 7)
and his wife He built of Adam's rib (Genesis 2:21).
He created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27).
This is what God says to us in His Word and this is the truth,
because He is the truth.
But how can we know for sure that the Bible is true?
What is really the truth?
The Bible is simply a unique book.
She was written by more than 40 authors
over a period of more than 1600 years
written from Genesis to Revelation.
This resulted in a book that forms a unit from the first to the last page.
We Christians believe that God inspired people to write these things down and form them into a book at the end.
As a result, the Bible is the only basis for us Getting to know God's personality and His will.
The Bible begins in the Old Testament with the formation of the earth,
the first human separation from God through sin up to the time where Jesus Christ comes to earth around us through his work of redemption, through his blood to be reconciled with God. The New Testament lets us look back to the cross,
shows us the message of salvation (the gospel)
and what we as believers have inherited from it.
A will always shows the survivors their inheritance.
The Bible continues to guide us through time
until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ,
until Eternal Judgment.
The Bible is full of prophetic statements (over 6000)
more than half of which have been proven to have been fulfilled!
In 1947, in the Qumran area of the Dead Sea,
a shepherd boy found writings among other things
the complete book (scroll) of the prophet Isaiah,
of about 700 years before Christ
particularly accurate predictions wrote about
the life and death of Jesus Christ.
For example, read Isaiah chapter 53.
This made the scholars and scientists of the whole world sit up and take notice, because it was later scientifically proven that that these scrolls date from the 1st to 2nd centuries BC.
Statements of many people, that these Scriptures were written later, namely, after it happened, were thereby refuted.
In addition, this proved the accuracy of modern copies,
in which there are only small deviations,
meaning that there are no deviations at all.
At this point I do not want to go into this topic in more detail for reasons of space,
but I refer you to an Internet address
in which these and many more things are who pursue the question whether the Bible is true:
With a circulation of 200 to 300 million copies a year,
the Bible is the bestseller of all time
and, moreover, the most accurately preserved scripture that has ever existed.
The devil kept trying to destroy the Word of God or to close it to people.
He persuades people that the Bible is only for a certain group of people anyway and that they don't understand the word anyway.
He has a reason for that:
HE KNOWS THE SALVING MESSAGE CONTAINED THEREIN,
ROB HELL AND POPULATING HEAVEN!
Luke 21:33 says:
"Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away."
It is surely obvious to everyone that God,
who created everything,
is also able to protect His Word,
otherwise we would be deprived of any basis to get to know him.
The greatest gift
But now to the most important part of this message.
What do I have to do to reconcile myself with God,
to spend eternity in heaven in the presence of God?
Herein is shown the love and grace of God,
because it's so easy that for many people it is even too easy.
But the Word of God gives us very clear information about this
and it also tells us very clearly how NOT to do
and that's where I want to start.
In Romans 3:20 it is written:
"For by the works of the law no one will be justified before him;
but rather by the law comes the knowledge of sin"
And Galatians 2:21 says:
"I do not disregard the grace of God in any way;
for if righteousness came through the law,
so Christ would have died in vain."
But here it is written and in many other places
that we are not justified by fulfilling the commandments (law).
Justice is the ability to have in the presence of God without a guilty conscience or a sense of guilt, condemnation, or inferiority.
The law is there for us to recognize sin and thus get to know God.
God has nothing in common with sin.
God loves people!
But He hates sin!
Sin came into the world at the fall of the devil.
We have all sinned.
and we all need redemption
"All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."
But what can we do if we cannot save ourselves by good works?
In Luke 18:26+27 Jesus says before His crucifixion,
when people asked him who can then be saved,
that it's impossible for humans anyway
and it is only possible for God.
Only God could get us out of this predicament!
And He did it through His Son Jesus Christ.
"For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whoever believeth in him
should not perish but have eternal life."
But what happens when we decide to believe in the work of redemption
of Jesus Christ on the cross of Golgatha?
The Bible gives us a very clear explanation of this.
In the Gospel of John 3:3, Jesus says to Nicodemus:
"Amen, amen, I say to you:
If someone is not born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Whenever Jesus says "Amen, amen"
which translates "Verily, verily" means,
Jesus placed special importance on this passage.
Let me explain this briefly that man is spirit
possesses a soul (senses, feelings, mind)
and lives in one body (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
Jesus tells us in the 3rd chapter of the Gospel of John,
that after our normal physical birth
our spirit must be born again, to enter the kingdom of God.
Our spirit, which is the most important thing
because it determines our nature, has to be renewed.
It determines what we want and what we do.
Our nature is a fallen nature
and our spiritual father before the new birth is the devil.
"Your father is the devil and you want to do this what your father desires." John 8:44
That sounds very harsh - but it's the truth.
Just as a lion cannot become a cow, by constantly eating grass,
can a fallen person become a Christian (son or daughter of God),
by doing good deeds.
If that were so, Jesus would not have had to die for us.
It requires a complete renewal of the inner man, of your mind.
At the new birth he is torn out of the devil's sphere of influence
and born into the family of God.
This new birth is the greatest miracle that can happen in your life!
And it only needs one thing of you:
a clear decision that you profess aloud.
Adam and Eve decided and act against God by believing the devil and acted accordingly by eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
So they became separated from God and took on the devilish nature
In the same way, you can turn the tables again
with a voluntary short action.
We got this opportunity through Jesus Christ.
He was the first and the last to keep the commandments
and he didn't commit a single sin though the devil kept tempting him.
You can read about that in Matthew 4:1-11.
And 1. Peter 2:22 says:
"he did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth."
In this way he obtained the right
to give himself for our sins.
has never been or will be no man without sin.
God himself had to become man,
to sacrifice himself for us!
Jesus Christ was not a martyr
"I am the good shepherd...
I lay down my life for the sheep...
no man taketh it from me,
but I lay it down of myself."
It was God's plan that He die for us
and by His blood washed away all our sins.
"...he loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood."
Jesus Christ has set us free from all sins
no matter how heavy they were!
After death we go straight to heaven without intermediate station (purgatory).
of whom most of the New Testament is written,
certainly committed one of the worst sins one can commit before God
before meeting the Lord:
At that time he persecuted,
the first believing Christians en masse.
When Jesus appeared to him on the way to Damascus,
he called Him "Lord"
and accepted him as Lord
he was born again immediately
From that moment Paul was totally changed and he became one of the most zealous Christians that ever existed.
Or consider the criminal who was crucified next to Jesus.
At the hour of his death he also professed his faith,by saying:
"Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
Jesus answered him:
"Amen, I tell you: Today you will be with me in paradise."
If there was any atonement through purgatory,
this man would have deserved it.
But Jesus said,
"TODAY you will be with me in paradise."
God never mentions such a place in His Word
and it doesn't exist either!
It's just trying to keep people away from the true gospel,
the really good news.
You can't earn your salvation by going to church,
no matter how many times,
or by three drops on the head.
No! Water baptism is a sacrament for the believing Christian,
who already believes in Jesus Christ
and who proclaims this before the visible and invisible world.
In Matthew 18:3 Jesus says:
"Amen, I tell you this, unless you repent and become as littlechildren,
you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."
Just as helpless and destitute as infants are before their parents,
we are before Him
because there is nothing we can do of our own to gain approval
to be righteous before Him.
God wants us to trust Him how little children trust their parents.
We are to surrender to Him,
to believe His Word and accept the gift of salvation.
God only wants our free consent,
without which he can do nothing in our life.
In the end there is nothing left for us to pride ourselves on.
It is His grace alone!
"Yes, by grace you came to salvation because of faith
and that not of yourselves -
it is the gift of God:
Not of works,
lest any man should boast."
Of course you should after you have made Jesus your Lord,
not seek sin.
But the reason why you don't sin anymore should be different now.
With Jesus, a new kind of love comes into you.
A love that can also love people who are angry to you.
This new love in you for God and to your fellow men it is that drives you to do good and sin no more.
It will be from a free heart not out of compulsion because you have to earn something.
Paul writes in Galatians 5:4
"So if you want to be justified by the law,
you have nothing more to do with Christ:
you have fallen from grace."
Here Paul gets to the point again.
Anyone who thinks he still had to do something to be saved,
is NOT redeemed
because ultimately he doesn't believe the gospel.
You don't have to do anything anymore but you may.
In John 14:6 Jesus said:
"I am the way
and the truth
and the life:
no man comes to the Father
but by me."
Praise the Lord!
Don't we have a wonderful God??
And it's all so easy!
He just wants you to believe His Word and Jesus
and tell him that too.
Romans 10:9+10 says:
"...because if you confess with your mouth:
Jesus is Lord
and believe in your heart:
God raised him from the dead
this is how you will be saved.
Who believes with the heart and confesses with the mouth,
shall obtain righteousness and salvation."
You now have a choice.
Heaven or Hell?
Do you want to believe in a religion
that gives you a god where you have to earn your salvation
and you're never sure have you done enough?
Religions are the devil's strongest weapon because he occupies people with it and thus prevents that they seek this true only God.
Or do you want to believe God
who gave out of love and grace our salvation
wich is already be done for you through His Son Jesus Christ?
You only need to accept this salvation for yourself in faith
and don't need to worry about it if you have done enough,
because you can't do more!
God desires nothing more
than to spend eternity with you in His kingdom.
But he has no right to.
You yourself must give him the right
in which you see the work of redemption of His Son Jesus Christ
and accept for you.
It's your free decision!
You don't have a church and nobody in this world
how can take THIS decision for you.
Below is a short prayer,
through which you can immediately put your decision into action.
And you'll find yourself doing things you've done before
and which weren't right, suddenly you can't do it so easily anymore, because your conscience is speaking up.
Your conscience comes from the spirit
and it will show you things that are not correct.
Because your spirit will then no longer want to sin!
Important! It is not prayer that saves.
Through what you have just read there should be a desire and faith to make Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
It must be voluntary,
without any pressure,
only then it is real.
If you feel that in you, then now is the right time.
to receive the New Life:
"Lord Jesus Christ,
I thank you,
that you came into this world to redeem me.
I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth,
that you are the son of God died for my sins
and on the third day you rose up from the dead.
Lord Jesus Christ,
please come into my life
and deliver me from all my guilt and sin.
I give you my life and wants you to embrace it fully.
Now I am born into the family of God
and may to you
say my Father.
I beg you,
fill me with your power
who helps me to do the things of God.
Lead me the way that you have prepared for me
and take me to the place
that you destined for me.
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen."
Praise the Lord!
Now you are a child of God!
You are redeemed
and after your earthly life you will go home to our Father in heaven.
This is for sure
and you are now free.
You can´t add nothing more to your salvation.
You are completely new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says:
"So if anyone is in Christ,
then he is a new creature:
The old is gone,
look, the new has come."
"And be not conformed to this world,
but be transformed in your nature by the renewal of your mind,
that you may prove
what is the good
Will of God."
I very gladly invite you to
(the heaven´s school)
Praise and glory be to God in the highest, in the name of Jesus Christ
