ARE YOU LOST?

Good Or Bad:

I didn't ask if you are a good person or a bad person. I asked you if Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour. In God's eyes, there are no good people apart from Jesus Christ.  In fact, the Holy Bible goes into great detail about what God thinks about people who have rejected Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The only unpardonable sin is rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

Matthew 10:28  And be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Plain Language:

Let's put this into plain language that everyone can understand. You should already know that you've done some bad and wrong things, but now you should know that God calls these things sins. All men are sinners, and no man is good. All men are lost until they accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Many get confused about the death sentence mentioned in Romans 6:23 because they think of only physical death. Man has a spirit that will live on after the physical body dies, and our spirit will live for Eternity in either Heaven or the fires of Hell. There is no end, so man is desperate for a Saviour who can Save them from the curse of sin and death. Those who physically die in their sins without accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are physically dying without their sins being forgiven. The penalty is the Eternal fires of Hell. This is the ultimate reality that won't go away, and it's the most important issue of your entire life that you must address one way or another. You must either accept or reject Jesus Christ and bear the consequences.

This Short Life Versus Eternity:

This short life is like the blink of an eye when compared to the Eternity to come. I must also tell you that you will have a body for Eternity. If you are a Christian, God will give you a Glorified Body like the one Christ has at His Appointed Time. If you die in your unforgiven sins, God will resurrect your body for final judgment, and that body will go with you to Hell. Some will laugh and say that these things aren't possible, but they are Promises from our Creator - Almighty God. There isn't anything funny about what God has told us. We will all have Eternity to review His Words of Absolute Truth - either in Heaven or Hell.

The Holy Bible - God's Word:

One of the first things that a lost person should know is that the Holy Bible is God's Word. The writers of the Holy Bible were directly Inspired by God to write every word in the Holy Bible. This makes the Bible different from every other book that has ever been written. The Holy Bible isn't just the best-selling masterpiece of all time, rather it is the Word of God. The Holy Bible proves itself in hundreds of ways, and there are great hosts of witnesses who have testified about the Absolute Truth of our Living Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The dates on the earth are fixed with His Name (i.e. B.C., A.D.). Jesus Christ is the most written about and talked about in the entire history of mankind. I must also state that God's Word is the only accurate history book, both of the past and the future.

Accepting Jesus Christ:

Have you been thinking about accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? If the answer is "no", it's far past time to consider the most important decision of your entire life. Everything, especially life, is uncertain, and any of us could die at any moment from dozens of causes. Tomorrow really could be too late, so won't you take a few minutes and think about things right now? I promise you that Jesus Christ is real - just as real as you are. If you want to seriously consider this most important issue, just keep reading. You don't have to go to hell, regardless of how many bad things that you've done. You can be forgiven and have peace with God. Please read about the Good News.

GOOD NEWS!

1:  Romans 3:10-12 ASV   10  as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one;  11  There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God;  12  They have all turned aside, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not, so much as one:

2:  Romans 3:23 ASV  for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

3:  Romans 5:12 ASV  Therefore, as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin; and so death passed unto all men, for that all sinned: -

4:  Romans 6:23 ASV  For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

5:  Romans 1:18 ASV  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hinder the truth in unrighteousness;

6:  Romans 3:20 ASV  because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight; for through the law cometh the knowledge of sin.

7:  Romans 3:27 ASV  Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith.

8:  Romans 5:8-9 ASV  But God commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from the wrath of God through him.

9:  Romans 2:4 ASV  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

10:  Romans 3:21-22 ASV   21  But now apart from the law a righteousness of God hath been manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;  22  even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ unto all them that believe; for there is no distinction;

11:  Romans 3:27-28 ASV   27  Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith.  28  We reckon therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

12:  Romans 10:8-10 ASV   8  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach:  9  because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:  10  for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

13:  Romans 4:21-25 ASV   21  and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was able also to perform.  22  Wherefore also it was reckoned unto him for righteousness.  23  Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was reckoned unto him;  24  but for our sake also, unto whom it shall be reckoned, who believe on him that raised Jesus our Lord from the dead,  25  who was delivered up for our trespasses, and was raised for our justification.

14:  Romans 5:1-2 ASV   1  Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;  2  through whom also we have had our access by faith into this grace wherein we stand; and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

15:  Romans 10:10-13 ASV   10  for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be put to shame.  12  For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek: for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich unto all that call upon him:  13  for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

2 Corinthians 9:15 ASV  Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.

God's Gift to us was sending Jesus Christ to die for us on the Cross about 2,000 years ago. He was a Perfect and Holy Sacrifice, and it's His Blood that washes our sins away. He arose from the dead on the third day and is our Living Lord and Saviour forever! Won't you stop putting this most important decision of your life off and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? Tomorrow might be too late. Many here will be happy to help you.

If your heart and mind are right, you can be saved right now. You don't have to wait. You might say a simple prayer and mean it from the bottom of your heart. Something like this:  Dear Heavenly Father, I've sinned against you many times, and I know that I'm lost and on my way to hell. I know now that you are the only God and Creator of all. I know that you are God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - Yet One Almighty God. I know in my heart that you sent your Son to die on the Cross in payment for my sins. I also know in my heart that you raised your Son from the dead on the third day, and His Holy Name is Jesus Christ. Dear God, I beg forgiveness for my sins, and I ask that you send your Holy Spirit to live in my heart as a guide and comforter. Dear God, I know that Jesus Christ loves me enough to die for me, and I want Him to be the Lord and Head over my life. I want to return His Love, and I ask these things in the Precious Name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour Forever. Amen.

The prayer should be in your own words, and you must mean it from the bottom of your heart. If you do, God will hear you and grant your prayer. Your life will be changed forever from that very moment, and you will be able to say that God has Saved you.
