Going threw my alerts I was quick to click on one of my fav. blogs. She is soooooo funny and I laugh so hard when reading her journal. But sadly the new entry she posted wasn't going to be one of those cleaver stories from her family or work life. Jamie of ChaseNKids just suffered a very big loss. He best friend was murdered! Even threw her grief she articulates so well, I was crying with her. Please keep her and her friend's family in prayer. This is so horrible.
When people suffer like she is it is always hard to put into words anything that would comfort them. I think all I can do is mourn with her and pray for her. I don't know what her faith is, I have read some mention of Jehovah Witness and I am not sure what her friend was or not. For some this is not an important question and almost rude to discuss. I think when dealing with issues of death and dying and where we will end up in Eternity it is a very important question.
Yes this is going to be a post that touches on faith and on heaven and hell. Don't roll your eyes at me..don't go hitting that red X button just yet.
This is where I am going to plead with you to not put off the most important decision you will ever make in your life time. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT PROMISED TOMORROW! You do not know if you will wake up tomorrow and have another chance to make this choice.
Choose NOW, right now, don't put this off. Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior or Reject him. The Bible says ONLY those who call upon his name, who KNOW him, who live for him now, will enter Heaven. It is not enough to be a good person and do good deeds. Many good people go to HELL simply because they choose to reject Jesus Christ. If works was enough to enter Heaven, and living and following the Law to the letter Jesus's sacrifice on the Cross would not of been necessary. But because WE ALL fall short of the Glory of God and we all sin, we all need a sacrifice and Jesus fulfilled that. You can not add to or take away from the message of the cross, he said IT IS FINISHED.
Again I am begging you, choose today Jesus. Even if you don't die tomorrow you will have a life changed and blessed. I am not a nut case but I do live and breath for him. I am just warning you. The day is coming when Jesus will return and take all those who are filled with the Holy Spirit away from this world, the rapture is what it is called in Christian language. When that happens there is no second chances, your fate is sealed and God's wrath will be poured out on this earth and you will be here for it if you do not choose Christ. Revelations says NO ONE Repents at the time of the wrath on the Earth. I encourage you to read the Gospel of John and find out for yourself what the Bible says about Jesus, don't just take my words for it.
He is knocking at your door right now, will you open it?
If you said yes then just pray the following or what ever comes from your heart..
Lord I admit I am a sinner and need to be saved from Hell because of my sins. I believe sincerely that Jesus came to earth and lived a perfect life, that he died on the cross for my sins and that on the third day he rose from grave. I ask for forgiveness for all my sins and that Jesus would come into my heart, and my life. Seal me with your Holy Spirit and lead me and guide me all the days of my life. IN JESUS NAME I PRAY. AMEN.
If you just prayed that simple prayer I welcome you into the family of God, you are now my brother or sister. Please e-mail me if you did!
If you did not pray that prayer, you have chosen to reject Jesus Christ, and what ever may come when you die, don't say you were never warned. I pray that God would use the seeds planted here into your life and maybe before it is too late you will come to him.
This is not normally what some would call a religious blog, just me living my life and putting it all in words but part of my life is my faith and devotion to God. You do not have to agree with me or take my word for it.. like I said, read the Bible for yourself and choose.
