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!!

President Trump: Your Global Campaign Should Be For the Unborn Babies

To say that I am disappointed in our president for his announcement about decriminalizing homosexuality globally would be a gross understatement.

With all the publicity about the “Wall” and then the recent law in NY which allows killing mills to murder babies up to the day of delivery; I was hoping to hear outrage from President Trump over this, and an announcement of a campaign to STOP late term abortion.

Instead, we hear that he will fight for the LGBTQ cause and decriminalize this across the globe.  Is he going to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman,  and demand that homosexuality be decriminalized in that Muslim country?

I seriously doubt that. 

So, what would prompt our president to suddenly become a spokesperson for the rights of homosexuals?  A writer from wnd.com, Scott Lively says this:

“President Trump has put his conservative base in a terrible situation by allowing openly homosexual U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to lead a campaign to “decriminalize homosexuality” around the world. This gut-punch of a news story is being spun as a response to Iran’s recent execution of a homosexual man. While I believe I speak for most conservatives in saying I do not condone that execution, or capital punishment for any sexual crimes anywhere, I believe the Iran incident is simply a pretext for perpetuating the “All-In” Obama doctrine on LGBT issues by the U.S. State Department, and I think President Trump has been persuaded to cooperate on the false argument that doing so will mitigate leftist hatred of his administration here at home.

I have some bad news for President Trump: LGBTs and their surrogates in media, academia and government are IMPLACABLE. He will get no credit from the left, but will instead empower a small army of Trojan Horse “conservatives” among his base who are really progressive change-agents in disguise.” source

The wnd.com writer nailed it, and the reader can see the rest of his article here

If President Trump believes that he will be instrumental in the protection of gays in sharia ruled Muslim countries, then he is either extremely gullible or something else is going on here.

Votes over Conviction or is there NO Conviction?

When a sitting president makes an announcement such as this one, it is usually because he has been counseled by one of his advisors that doing so will help the Republican party in future elections.

Has this president forgotten that Conservatives voted him into office in 2016? Does he not know his own base?  As a Christian Conservative, I am outraged at his proclamation which tells the world that he believes that homosexuality is not only legitimate  – but in actuality he is saying that it is not sinful.

This has sent out mixed messages to both the Conservative base and the Left.

The Bible says this:

“he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8).

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

I would have had more respect for this president if he had come out in defense of the millions of women from Muslim countries who suffer this torturous procedure. It is inhumane.

If the reader does not know what FGM is, here is a website which explains the procedure:  From the standard.co.uk   <click here to read

Mr. President: HOW ABOUT THE BABIES?

When we saw footage of the cheering amongst the NY State Legislature, when the bill passed which would allow babies to be murdered right up to the day of delivery; we (Conservative Christians) were shocked and saddened.

Personally, I hoped and prayed that President Trump would be as shocked and sickened as the rest of us.  Evidently, he does not feel that this new law which is spreading to other states, is worthy of his time.  Very disappointing.

Perhaps he did not watch the abortion performed on a full term baby which went viral on the internet. Perhaps he felt that it would be too graphic.  THAT is the problem.  People need to see the brutality and barbarism of late term abortion!

ALL abortion is wrong.  Late term abortion is both wrong and barbaric.

A friend said that these laws which will inevitably spread to other states should be called the “Gosnell Law” – named after the serial killer Kermit Gosnell. He is an abortionist who loved murdering babies. He even kept trophies in formaldehyde – hands, feet and various parts of his “kill.”

He is in jail.  A movie was made about this madman; but now I wonder if his attorneys are taking another look at his conviction.  They probably are asking this question:

“What did Kermit Gosnell do that is not now being considered the norm?”

Watch as the new law in NY is signed by Andrew Cuomo – the cheering is absolutely demonic:

Maybe this is a wakeup call for those Conservatives who feel that President Trump can do no wrong.  He is merely a man.

Did I vote for him?   Yes I did, but that vote was actually a vote AGAINST Hillary Clinton.  I know that there were and are many “Never Trumpers” and people such as myself were scorned by these people. They told us that we should NOT vote for Trump.

The Lord only knows where the U.S. would be if Clinton had prevailed.  As much as we resemble Sodom and Gomorrah, an America under a President Hillary Clinton may have been severely judged by this time.

Who knows what may have happened?  A devastating natural disaster or maybe a nuclear strike from Russia?

I cringe as I think about the presidential elections in 2020. Is true Conservatism now dead in the U.S.?

Will our votes matter?  Maybe not, but I will still vote for the person whose beliefs are closest to mine.  My trust is in the Lord and Him alone.  HE is in control, and if America votes in a Leftwing liberal, then that was what our God allowed.

Remember brethren, we are swiftly entering times in which a One World Government and Religion will be in place.

Come Lord Jesus. Come quickly…….
