I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”
In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?
First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.
“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him, Jesus, Who knew no sin to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . . without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22).
“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
My friend, “God commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross.
In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: “ . . . ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ’ ”
Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior.
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.
Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed:
“God be merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”
Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!
God’s simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.
You say, “Surely, it cannot be that simple.” Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.
If His plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down, until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.
God’s power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are four things to practice daily for spiritual growth:
Pray — you talk to God.
Read your Bible — God talks to you.Witness — you talk for God.
Join a Bible Study — You will grow in your faith.
Develop relationships with other believers – Fellowship is so important!!
The executive director of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, Steve Kirsch, has been working to make early COVID drug treatments available to the public, despite being assailed by the medical establishment for speaking out about the dangers of the COVID vaccines.
During the pandemic, he founded the COVID-19 Treatment Fund to raise money to test repurposed drugs for use in treating COVID, while health agencies were dismissing their effectiveness and urging the public to get vaccinated as the only way to prevent severe illness and hospitalization.
Not allowing the testing and use of repurposed drugs has cost too many lives said, Kirsch.
“This has cost millions of lives,” and the problem was compounded by a hospital COVID treatment protocol “that was almost certain to kill you,” Kirsch said during a recent interview on EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program.
He said the COVID protocols hospitals have followed, although sanctioned by the federal health agencies, added to the death toll.
“It’s approved by the NIH, and if [hospitals] stick with the NIH and the CDC approved protocols, [hospitals] get compensated, and there’s no liability,” said Kirsch.

Early Treatment Works
At the start of the pandemic, Kirsch donated a million dollars and raised five million to fund clinical trials and recruited a 14-person scientific advisory board all to test repurposed drugs for COVID treatment.
“What we discovered was that many of these drugs were remarkably effective,” said Kirsch. One of the repurposed drugs, fluvoxamine, was successful in treating COVID and featured on 60 Minutes, but was not mentioned that it was highly effective in treating COVID.
If patients started taking the drug right when they started to develop COVID symptoms, the results were very good with no hospitalizations. After the study, Kirsch tried to get emergency authorization from the FDA but was told that the study had insufficient evidence.
“This is something that is killing people, that is a world emergency, and it took the FDA six weeks to act on data that could be reviewed in an hour. The fix is in, they’re not going to approve anything,” said Kirsch.
Even after more studies came out proving that this drug was effective in curing COVID, the FDA still rejected its use but approved a bivalent COVID booster with no human trials.
“There’s no evidence of a benefit [for bivalent booster], yet they approve it for that, but for fluvoxamine, which had a stellar track record and an incredible safety record for 30 years. They said nope, insufficient evidence,” said Kirsch.
The Epoch Times reached out to the FDA for comment.
Because Kirsch had limited funds, he said he also went to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to ask: “Hey, would you help me fund early treatment because that’s the fastest, safest, cheapest way? Let’s try what’s on the shelf. They said, ‘nope, we’re out of money.’”
Kirsch said doctors are all taught to revere vaccines and because they don’t have time to research everything themselves, they trust the guidance that comes down from the top health agencies like the CDC, FDA, and NIH. In addition, there is almost no pushback against the mainstream medical narrative from journalists.
“The government narrative, of course, is the mainstream medical thinking, that is influenced by [NIHID Director] Tony Fauci,” said Kirsch.
“Fundamentally, the news media is supposed to say, well, this side said this, and this said this, you decide, but what they’ve turned into is an advocacy organization for the government narrative,” said Kirsch.
Kirsch believes the reason the CDC is pushing the vaccines and why no one is looking objectively at the safety data is because of “group think.”
“They all are trained to believe that vaccines are safe and effective. They are all mentally conditioned,” said Kirsch, as are most people in society who trust that vaccines are good for public health.
“This is a vaccine, which is mandated, which is throwing a death safety signal, and I can’t get a call back from Martha Sharon at the CDC. I even sent emails to Rochelle Walensky and never get a response.”
The Epoch Times reached out to the CDC for comment from Sharon and Walensky.
Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladopo recently advised people not to vaccinate the young, especially working-age young men. Ladopo found in a study that they are almost two times more likely to have heart problems or face sudden death from the vaccines within four weeks of their last shot.
However, Kirsch thinks Ladopo should have looked at a full 6 months to discover the real threat of dying from the COVID vaccines, because he has also observed a mid-term risk of death from the shots.
Kirsch notes that according to all the vaccine adverse event data he has analyzed, there are two peaks of vaccine-related mortality: one within a few weeks of the shot and the other at five months after COVID injection.
“The vaccine [can] either kill you very quickly, within weeks, because of inflammation, or it will cause clogging in your arteries that will show up about five months later,” said Kirsch. “There are two different mechanisms going on, and they have two different time constants. It turns out that the five-month death is actually larger than that [which] happens within the first 28 days.”
A significant amount of data shows, that if “there’s a big spike in vaccination in April, and there’s a big spike in deaths in September, five months difference.” Embalmers and insurance companies can verify the data coming out of multiple countries which show deaths at 5 months caused by clotting.
Hiding Safety Data
Kirsch cites the fact that the Israeli Ministry of Health neglected to collect and later kept vaccine adverse effect data from the public, even though their own research team found many serious and long-term health problems from getting the shots.
The research team, “about two months into it, they report, hey, we’ve got a problem here. This this vaccine is not safe. We’re seeing safety signals,” said Kirsch.
Although the Israeli Ministry of Health allegedly tried to bury the data, a video presentation from the research team was recorded and leaked to a journalist who shared it with a few independent media outlets said, Kirsch.
This is true not just of Israel but many other countries as well, they all have similar data on the impact of the vaccines, yet no one that Kirsch has contacted at top research universities, the NIH, or mainstream media has wanted to expose or look into the cover-up of the vaccine safety data.
Although Kirsch has had a very successful career as a tech entrepreneur and philanthropist, because he has been outspoken about the dangers of COVID vaccines he has been attacked, censored, lost friends and colleagues, and been maligned; including having his LinkedIn resumé deleted and a significant philanthropic award—the National Caring Award—erased from his Wiki page.
“When you tell the truth on social media if you speak against what the government narrative is, you end up being banned, and you end up being demonized. And when I started speaking out against the vaccine, within a week, all 14 members of [my] scientific advisory board quit,” said Kirsch.
Marsha Gee, a top nurse at the University of California San Diego, was injured from the vaccines but instead of being supported by her employer, she was subjected “thrown under the bus” and treated as though she was crazy, said Kirsch.

Doctors Are Attacked
But more and more people including doctors are realizing that these vaccines are not as safe or effective as claimed, such as British Cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, who because a skeptic after his father died from a sudden heart condition after getting vaccinated. He then dug into the COVID adverse data and discovered the dangers of the shots and is now calling for an end to the COVID vaccine mandates.
“The same thing [happened to Paul Marik], he took the vaccine because his peers told him it’s safe and effective, and then he started meeting vaccine injured, and then he started looking at the data,” said Kirsch. Marik has discovered a large amount of negative data and now thinks, “I was lied to, and he is appalled at what has gone on in the medical community.”
“I‘ve seen multiple analyses of data, whether it’s from San Diego or Ontario, that show there is no hospitalization benefit, that there is no infection benefit, and there is no death benefit. So we are doing all this, we are turning the country upside down and mandating a vaccine which is killing people. And that’s why I’m doing this, because if I can help stop that … I did the right thing to do. SOURCE

Following his Saturday night victory against Genaro Valdez at UFC Orlando, Jewish Israeli UFC lightweight Natan Levy slammed rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West’s recent antisemitic rants, stating, “If you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro.”
Asked during a post-fight press conference backstage what he — as one who “represents Israel” as an athlete from the Jewish state — makes of “everything happening” in the country in light of West’s recent antisemitic statements, Levy expressed “pity” for those mired in hatred.
“I think life is too short to hate,” he said.
“So to all these hateful people: it sucks for you, I pity you,” he added.
Addressing West directly, the 31-year-old Levy — who picked up his second win inside the Octagon on Saturday — said, “If you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro.”
Subsequently, Levy was asked if he had noticed that West ’s rhetoric has emboldened many others to repeat similar hateful messages online, to which he responded, “Trust me, I’ve noticed it … I get a lot of ‘lovely’ DMs all the time.”
The Israeli mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter then proclaimed that he bears no shame over his Jewish background.
“I am Jewish. That’s what I am. That’s what I was born [as]. I’m very proud of it and I will fight for it. I will fight for my people — in the octagon, or wherever need be.
Levy concluded by declaring he would not “stand” for hate, as he warned those who “bully” others around him.
“I will not stand for antisemitism,” he said. “I won’t stand for any racism — not around me.”

“Don’t bully anybody around me or I’m gonna find you,” he added.
Earlier this year, Levy dedicated a victory to Holocaust victims.
“This week was remembrance day for the Holocaust, I would take a minute of silence for every victim we had, but it would take 11 and-a-half years, I think the broadcast would end before that,” he said.
“So I will sell my fight kit [and] the profits will go to Holocaust victims who made it and are still alive today,” he added.
Levy’s recent remarks come as West continued his attacks on Jews this past week, with the controversial rapper praising Hitler during an appearance on the Alex Jones Show.
I’m certain that Kanye West is on the radar of Mossad in Israel. Just ONE of them could take “Ye” or any of his body guards and make Gefilte fish out of them.
Is America nearing the end of the road as a nation? Have we reached a place similar to that of Judah just before Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem and the temple?
Three times in the book of Jeremiah, the Lord tells the prophet not to pray for the people of Judah (Jeremiah 7:16, 11:14, 14:11). God’s judgment on the nation was certain at this point; praying would not change the final outcome.
Can we apply Jeremiah’s words to the U.S. as well? I believe we can.
God’s judgment upon America is not only certain, I believe it has already begun. Please know that I am not implying that revivals will no longer happen in the U.S. We should pray for people to come to the Savior, and hopefully, a great many will continue to receive His offer of eternal life.
What I am saying, however, is that there will not be a great spiritual awakening that will reshape America or change its downward trajectory. As a nation, we have rejected God and His ways, just as Judah did during the time of the prophet Jeremiah.
The November 8, 2022, election in the U.S. confirms that, as a nation, we are close to the end of the road. As expected, widespread cheating changed the outcome of many key races, keeping the Democrats in control of the Senate as well as that of several state governorships. The slight advantage to Republicans in the House will not alter America’s continuing descent into darkness.
Abortion up to the moment of birth won big. In California, the ballot proposal to make the murder of preborn children part of the state’s constitution was up by 1.3 million votes the last time I checked. In Vermont, 77.4% voted in favor of enshrining the killing of innocents in the state’s constitution, while 56.7% did so in Michigan.
There’s also evidence that many people went to the polls to voice their support of keeping abortion legal up to the point of birth.
The Romans 1 Path to Perdition
Paul wrote these words in Romans 1:18:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
What the apostle describes in the rest of the chapter perfectly aligns with the past sixty years of American history. In Romans 1:28-32, we see the results of rejecting God, such as has happened in the U.S.
“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”
The U.S. has reached the end of the Romans 1 path to perdition. Signs of the “debased mind” described in the above verses abound throughout our culture as well as in the halls of our federal government.
A recent news story claimed that the Biden administration sent money to Ecuador for the purpose of putting on drag queen shows, which are a hideous and indecent repudiation of all that God’s Word says about gender and morality.
Newsweek’s efforts to fact-check this report resulted in the two disturbing paragraphs below:
In a statement sent to Newsweek, a spokesperson for the State Department said the agency supports “a wide range of strategic programs in Ecuador” that focus on diversity and representation, and that the goal of the CEN program is to “promote tolerance” and “provide new opportunities for LGBTQI+ Ecuadorians to express themselves freely and safely.”
“LGBTQI+ people across the globe deserve to live in societies free from targeted violence and discrimination. Recent data suggest an alarming and deadly rise in violence against LGBTQI+ persons in Ecuador,” the spokesperson said. [i]
In other words, the report that the Biden administration funded drag shows in Ecuador was not only true, but it’s just a sampling of their efforts to promote abhorrent debauchery in other nations as well.
The corruption that defines the U.S. government extends to Republicans as well. Most, if not all, of the GOP leadership support the globalists’ agenda, while only a handful of its politicians speak out against the injustice and wicked behavior that abounds throughout America.
On November 16, 2022, twelve Republican Senators joined Democrats in ending the debate on the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which establishes same-sex marriage into federal law. This ensures that it will become law.
“The deceitfully named Respect for Marriage Act will be voted on by the U.S. Senate this week, as early as Wednesday. The bill strikes a blow at religious freedom for individuals and ministries and is really the ‘Destruction of Marriage Act.’ Its sponsors remarkably claim it protects religious freedom. It does not. This disastrous bill sends a message to America that if you don’t agree with the left’s definition of marriage, you are a bigot.”
The Nearness of the Seven-Year Tribulation
Another indication that America lies near the end of the road is the rapidly approaching Day of the Lord, or the seven-year Tribulation, in which all nations will experience God’s wrath. It will be the worst time in world history; comparatively very few people will remain alive at the time of Jesus’ return to the earth (Matthew 24:22; see also Isaiah 13:9-12).
There have been 63 million abortions in America alone and over one billion worldwide since it became legal. This alone accounts for the severity of the Lord’s future judgments that John witnessed and described for us in Revelation 6-18.
However, there’s so much more wickedness that places the trajectory of America squarely on a downward path, as I have brought up in other articles.
Several decades ago, after Ruth Graham read the draft of a book that her husband was writing, she said, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Her words ring true today, abundantly more so. God will not be apologizing! Instead, the U.S. will suffer a fate similar to those two ancient cities.
Even if I did not believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture, I would still warn people about the Lord’s impending judgment on America.
There Is Good News, Really
In the midst of all the bad news about the moral decline of America as well as the rest of the world, there’s much good news, really!
First, we know that Jesus is coming for us soon; there’s no better news for weary souls than that.
Regardless of our current circumstances, even if they happen to be fantastic, heaven will be so much better; it will be glorious. From the moment of the Rapture forward, we will enjoy immortal bodies and experience joy beyond our wildest imagination.
We will meet Jesus in the air and go to the place He has prepared for us. Can you imagine the excitement we will feel when we see Jesus face to face? Spend a few moments thinking about the reunions that will take place with loved ones and dear friends who are already with the Lord. Once we set foot in glory, we will instantly forget about our trials and hardships on earth.
Second, if you have not yet placed your faith in Jesus and His saving work on the cross, the good news is that you can know that you possess everlasting life (1 John 5:13). All those that call upon Jesus in faith are bound for glory; they will never experience God’s wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 5:9-10).
In my post, “Jesus Is the Only Path to Eternal Life,” I explain how you can know that God has forgiven all your sins because of the blood that Jesus shed upon the cross. He died in your place; He took the wrath we all deserve upon Himself. He paid the penalty for all of our sins, past, present, and future.
In 1 John 5:11-12, we find these comforting words about eternal life:
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”
Call upon the Savior while you have the opportunity; tomorrow may be too late. He alone is the path to eternal life (John 14:6).
My book, The Triumph of the Redeemed-An eternal Perspective that Calms Our Fears in Perilous Times, is available on Amazon. In it, I provide a firm biblical basis for our hope in Jesus’ imminent appearing and the glory that lies ahead for all those in Christ.
