How Can I Be Saved?

The Simple Plan of Salvation

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.”

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).

For all have sinned

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).

Judgment

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).

He who had no sin

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).

Lamb

“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Christ died for us

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 ’ ”

Believe on the Lord

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

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!!

STOP Trying to Make Me HATE Our President!

There have been a few readers of my articles who have written to me about Donald Trump. Most of these people will not be happy until I come out with a scathing article about our president.

I have four words for these and others who are anticipating a hateful article about Trump from me:

DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH.

Is he perfect?  Certainly not.  Am I perfect, or the people who write to me – or ANY of us?   NO.  There is one perfect One and His name is Jesus Christ.

I expect the Leftist rhetoric about our president from unsaved Liberals.  But, what is going on in the body of Christ that they would feel such hatred towards our president? Is their TV malfunctioning and stuck on CNN?  Even if that was the case – can they not discern between Fake News and Real News?

ISRAEL

It is no secret that I am an ethnic Jew who came to belief in Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah.  How can I not love what Donald Trump has done for Israel?  After those torturous 8 years under Barack Obama, Donald Trump is a breath of fresh air to all who love America and Israel!

Jerusalem has been declared the undivided capital of Israel by the Trump administration.  Our embassy was moved to Jerusalem!  President Trump loves Bibi.  What is to hate about any of this?

The Lies

Every morning I take a look at the news headlines as I’m sure most of you do.  But in the last few months, as soon as I see any headline with “Russia” mentioned, I move on until I am safely out of the Fake News swamps.

The Globalists  STILL cannot believe that Trump is in office. They are like toddlers having tantrums many times a day.  After a while it is like nails on the blackboard to me.  Can the reader relate to what I am saying?

America’s Economic Boom

How about our booming economy?  Where do we read about that in the news?  Well, it’s not even near the top with the “Russia” garbage – I’ll tell you that!

And speaking of Russia, have the Left forgotten about Hillary and Uranium One, when she allowed 20% of our Uranium supply to go to RUSSIA!  It only cost Russia a bit over $500,000 for a speech given by Bill Clinton. That must have been some speech!  And the Russian money which continued to pour into the infamous Clinton Foundation.    OH WAIT……the liberal news rags don’t report on such things!

Unemployment is at an historic low.  Obama’s cronies fudged those numbers around election time to make them look less dismal.  President Trump has stimulated our economy, lowering corporate taxes, so companies are hiring all over the country!

Immigration and more lies 

You  cannot tell a Lefty that Obama deported more illegals than Trump. They won’t hear it.  You cannot tell a Lefty that Walmarts were converted into makeshift “wire” housing for illegals under……….wait for it…………..BARACK OBAMA.  NOT TRUMP.   They will dig in their heals and call you a liar.

Have you seen the picture of the sobbing little girl who is supposed to be the poster child for the children who are separated from their parents when they come over our border illegally?   Did you know that this little girl was NOT separated from her folks?  I guess the lying media liked her “look” and they thought “The useful idiots” would believe it.  And they did.

Did you know that many adults who attempt to cross our border with small children are human traffickers?  Many are pedophiles!  Nope – you won’t read that in the NY Times or Huffington Post.

It’s truly a losing battle to attempt to correct a Leftist Liberal.  Their crazy ideology teaches them to turn and attack.  How about a calm let us reason together discussion?  Yeah right.  That’s not in Saul Alinsky’s book (their bible) “Rules for Radicals.”

Radical Muslims

Do you remember when Obama held a Secret meeting in the White House with members of the Muslim Brotherhood?  Even the press were banned from that meeting. Obama filled our DHS and State Department with radical Muslims, and many of them are there to this day!

President Trump was attempting to place a ban on Muslims from countries which were known for Jihadist attacks. He wanted to keep the American people safe. He wanted to find a better way to vet these people, and until then, he desired to have a ban on them coming into our country.  Not permanently – just until his administration could find the better vetting process.

The Left went NUTS. “Islamophobia”  they cried!  The Left Wing Liberals are a dangerous bunch of people.  Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it’s the truth.

PRAY…..YES, PRAY!

Before I am jumped because I’m not speaking of the need to pray for these people; let me make something clear to the reader.  I pray for the lost.  I prayed for Obama and his family and still do.  I pray for my liberal and very lost family members, and friends and neighbors who are lost.   I PRAY!

Some are Given over to their debased minds

“Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers.”  (Romans 1:27-29).

I am not telling the reader that I know who will repent and turn to the Lord and who will not. I don’t.  God certainly knows.

According to that passage of Scripture, there are people who are so deep into their sinful, God-hating ways – that He knows who is beyond repentance and belief.

We should always pray.

So, to the readers who are waiting for a Trump bashing article from me – please move on.

I’m sure that you will find a Christian writer who will tickle your itching ears. They are certainly out there and they certainly need our prayers.

Shalom b’Yeshua

MARANATHA!
