“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” -John 11:25-26
BELIEVE: Do you believe you can be sure of your salvation today & knowing where you will spend eternity?
- “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me,”… WHEN? Today! TODAY is the time to believe! TODAY is the time to be sure of your salvation! Do not be deceived! Without Jesus there will be no hope for you in the grave or at His second coming. Today is the day to secure your salvation & what joy there is to those who have this confidence.
“In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” -2 Corinthians 6:2
“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” -Hebrew 3:15
IN: Can you hear His voice calling you to be purged daily?
- “He who believes in Me,”… Jesus is always calling us. He has sent the Holy Spirit to teach us all things and to lead us to all truth, so that we can respond to His calling. We all know when God is calling us in our heart to do or not to do something. God through His spirit is revealing to us our sins daily so we can in life purge ourselves from it and bear good fruit. This is true repentance & redemption of sins! A daily cleansing and purifying of your mind, body and soul.
In life: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” –2 Corinthians 4:1-*6,7
Life after death: “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 4:14
LIFE: Do you believe there is hope for anyone after death?
- “He who believes in Me, (When? In life!) though he may die, he shall live.“… There is nothing anyone can do for the salvation of the dead granting them acceptance into heaven. If you die without accepting Jesus and his sacrifice for the forgiveness of all your sins you are lost forever. There is only salvation in Jesus and no one else. His blood made atonement (expiation or propitiation) for all our sins (past, present & future). The price has been paid! Nothing else can be said or done for those who have gone down to the grave without Jesus. The bible says that we will be judged according to how we lived. It is up to you today to choose LIFE!
Can the dead perform works?: “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?” -Psalm 30:9
“For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” –Matthew 16:24-*27
“But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.” -1 Peter 4:1-5
“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.” -John 5:28-29
Will you rise when He calls your name?
- “And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” We who are alive have only one duty unto God. Those of course who have believed this message.
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.” -Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
