How to be Saved from Hell — Straight from the Bible

If you were to die today, where would you go, Heaven or Hell?

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7: 20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” Continue reading

For Those Who Have Trusted Jesus Christ as Savior…

Dear Friend, this article is primarily for people who have already entered through the “Door” of Life by accepting Jesus Christ as their Saviour. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour as of yet, please do so today by simply believing in Jesus Christ – that He died for you, that He was buried and rose again, and by calling on His Name to save you.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Jesus Christ said, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9). Continue reading

No New Year Without a New You

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Every time a new year rolls around, folks begin to think about things they can change in their lives. Some people say that they are going to lose weight and start eating healthy. Others say that they are going to go back to college or get out of debt. Some say that they are going to write a book or start their own business. And others commit to getting organized or spending more time with family and friends.

The start of a new year is indeed a great occasion to make a change in your life. I believe that God gives us such time markers as a way for us to stop, look back at our lives, and identify things that we can change for the future. However, many people focus on making only outward changes — changes that will improve the way they look, improve their standard of living, or improve how others see them. I believe that the best change you can make is a change from the inside out — a change of heart, spirit, and mind. In other words, a change that brings about a new you for the new year. For there cannot truly be a New Year for you if there is no new you for the New Year.

“Dr. King and the KING of Kings” Evangelistic Campaign

1 Timothy 6:13-16: “I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”

Revelation 19:16: “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.”

This message is important to me because I came to faith in Jesus Christ through the efforts of a white, independent Baptist church in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, that for many years did not accept black members, but in the late ‘70s was led to start a black church while I was in the Air Force and stationed at Kessler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi, at the age of nineteen. As I interacted with the leaders and members of that church, and even the pastor of the black church plant, I heard some negative things about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that I had never heard before. Some people tried to discredit him by suggesting that he was not a true minister of the Gospel, and even that he did not have a genuine relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. They viewed him as just a mere social worker, with some even claiming that he was a Communist. Even some of the blacks in that young church did not think too highly of Dr. King.

Hell: The Real House of Horrors

Allow me to briefly share with you how the Lord gave me this message: I was traveling on an evangelistic preaching tour in England and across Europe, and I had just finished preaching a series of meetings in England. Whenever I go to Europe, I always travel by train, which I just love and find very relaxing. On this particular evening, I departed from London’s Victoria Station on my way to Belgium and then on to Germany. After crossing the English Channel by ferry, my connecting train arrived rather late in the evening, and when I got on the train, I was tired and ready to just lean my head back and go to sleep.

As I normally do, I tried to get a compartment to myself, however, this was during the summer months, and the train, to my surprise, was jam-packed, and a bunch of college students piled into my compartment. The Lord began to speak to my heart about witnessing to these young people, and I told the Lord that I didn’t feel like doing that at the moment. However, He kept speaking to my heart that I needed to share the Gospel with these young people. I said, ‘Lord, it has got to be eleven or twelve o’clock at night, and I am sure they do not want to hear it, and I don’t really feel like telling them right now. And besides that, Lord, I just got through preaching a series of great meetings in England, and I just want to relax and rest a little while before the next meetings.’ And then, the thought suddenly came across my mind, that if I really believe that these young people would go to hell if they died, then I would surely share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with them so that they could be saved from this awful place.

“With Talent On Loan from God…” — A Thanksgiving Celebration

On this Thanksgiving, I thank God for the talents and gifts that He has bestowed upon my family and me and that is no doubt the reason why I love to see people do what they are truly talented and gifted by God to do. It is a blessing to see singers, musicians, actors, actresses, athletes in all sports, writers, speakers, business people, doctors, cooks, auto mechanics, lawyers, and leaders of all types seemingly without effort and almost flawlessly doing what they were given by God the talents and the gifts to do.

Their talents (or gifts) come from God, and He has blessed the world with an abundance of and an array of talents. Every time we see these talents on display, we ought to be thankful to God for them and for the way in which many people use them to benefit and bless society. Many years ago, I heard a popular secular radio talk show host begin his radio broadcasts with the phrase ‘with talent on loan from God…’ Even though I have not listened to him in years, that phrase stuck with me. It was good for him to know that whatever talents and gifts he has they came from God, and it is good for all of us to know that, and we all should give God thanks.

The Greatest Gift You Can Give this Christmas…

During this time of year, the thoughts of many people turn toward the matter of gift-giving and receiving. Collectively, we spend a good deal of money and time going from store to store to get the “perfect” gift for people we love or people we simply want to impress.

However, God gave the entire world the greatest gift it would ever receive when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world in the form of a baby in a manger. Many people at that time — and many people today — overlooked the utter importance of this wonderful gift. This gift, which arrived in the humble town of Bethlehem and was born to two ordinary Jews, was the means by which God intended to deliver the world from the pain, suffering, and death that came about because of sin.

Dear Vietnam

Dear Vietnam,

Your country has endured much political and social unrest since the mid-19th century. Many of your people continue to suffer from the harsh effects of the Vietnam war and its aftermath. Still other suffer from abuse and mistreatment brought on by your government and many restrictions have been places on your freedoms speech, assembly, and association. While all this was going on, I was watching over you the whole time, providing for you and giving you life to enjoy.

The motto of your country is: Độc lập – Tự do – Hạnh phúc (“Independence – Freedom – Happiness”). I want to bring you the true independence, freedom, and happiness that only comes from me. I am the Sustainer and Ruler of the universe, and I hold each person in your country in the palm of my hand. I care about you and your future. I know everything about you. But you do not know everything about me. You do not know the love, compassion, and salvation that I hold for you to have in this life.

Thousands of years ago, I sent my only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for your sins because I do not want you to suffer anymore in your country. He took all of your sin, hurt, pain, and misery on His shoulders and carried it to Calvary’s cross for you. I loved the world so much that I gave My only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). That is the best gift I can give you. All you have to do is accept Him.

Уважаемые России

Уважаемые России,

Ваша страна была долгая и непростая история. Для любого народа, чтобы выжить в холодных, северных районах земли принимает силу духа и силу. Хотя много крови было пролито и много жизней были потеряны в процессе основания вашей стране, знают, что я всегда наблюдал за вами. Я видел твои слезы, я чувствовал вашу боль, и я устойчивого вам в вашем горе.

Несмотря на политические и экономические проблемы, что Россия сталкивается в настоящее время, я все еще под контролем судьбы России, и у меня есть особый дар, который поможет вам работать через неопределенное время вперед. Что бы ни случилось, вы можете быть уверены в одном: я знаю о тебе все, все, что вы когда-либо делал, все, что вы никогда не говорил, и каждый думал, что вы когда-либо имели. Я вашего Небесного Отца и Творца и Вседержителя о Вселенной.

Я создал всех людей, и я забочусь о них глубоко. Когда Адам и Ева, первые мужчина и женщина на земле, согрешил против меня в Эдемском саду, я должен был отдельный человечество от самого себя. Я сделал это, потому что Я свят и праведен, и не может быть связано с грехом.

Тем не менее, я был огорчен, чтобы сделать это, и потому что я люблю моего творчества глубоко, я ставлю план в действие, чтобы принести грешное человечество обратно к себе. Я любил мир, что я дал Единородного Сына, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел жизнь вечную (Ин. 3:16). Я дал все, чтобы попытаться восстановить отношения с вами.
