Yes you do, we all do! Jesus Christ is Lord & Saviour, King of Kings.
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12esv).
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. (John 14:6)
Sin will lead us to death, Hell, and eternal separation from God, but Jesus will lead us to reconciliation with God and Heaven. It is by His Mercy & Grace that God offers you salvation through the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ. Only Jesus has paid the price for sin – our transgression of His commands such as: lying, stealing, sexual immorality, unrighteous anger, unforgivness, coveting and greed, idolatry, misusing His holy name, worshipping other things in place of God, selfishness, pride etc. He paid the just price on the cross. That price was death, in order that we may be set free from the righteous judgment and punishment we deserve.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3,3)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16-17)
“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1,12-13)
He loves you, and calls you to deep repentance from sin and total surrender to His Lordship. Listen to a testimony of what it means to totally surrender – Face to face encounter with Jesus Christ
Surrender your life to God, believe in your heart Jesus died on the cross for you for your sins, that God raise Him from the dead, confess Him as your Lord (Romans 10,10), ask for forgiveness and repent of all your sins. True faith is sincerely believing, repenting & surrendering yourself to Him. If you are ready, come to Him now with a prayer something like this:
“Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and You died for me.
I thank You for Your love and Your mercy.
Thank You, Lord, for the word that has reached my heart today.
Please come into my heart, be my Lord and Savior.
Jesus, fill me with your Holy Spirit and use me for Your glory.
I want to serve You and love You all the days of my life.
Today I have recognized my shortfall and I repent and turn away from all sin. Father, I ask for Your forgiveness. Forgive me.
Wash me with Your precious blood. Write my name in the Book of Life. Accept me as Your child, Lord.
Right now, I forgive anyone that I had not been able to forgive.
I renounce to my lack of forgiveness.
I renounce all things that have hindered Your flow,
and I ask You to transform me and to fill me with Your presence every day.
Please wash away all the sinful crud and tendencies toward evil and replace them with a hunger and thirst for your righteousness.
I need your help, Lord God, in living this new life in Christ.
Please send your Holy Spirit afresh into my life to help me, heal me, lead me and transform me.
Thank You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in the Holy Name of Jesus, Amen.”
The next steps
Read the bible and obey what God commands. Go to a Bible believing church, spend time in prayer and worship. Get baptised in water and in the power of the Holy Spirit. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. Remove personal sin from your life & grow in His grace to live holy, for God is holy. Seek to really know Him in genuine relationship. Seek to serve Him and spread His gospel to others. What is Christian baptism? Does baptism is necessary for salvation?
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1Cor6,9-11)
I recommend you start reading the Bible by reading Jesus’s major sermon for his disciples – the sermon on the mount ( Matthew Chapters 5, 6 & 7) and with the grace of God grow in faith, hope, love & holiness, He will help you to change & grow in His likeness. He will never leave you or forsake you, He loves you! Those who have truly surrendered are His Sons, disciples, and servants. Follow him & dont look back, because you are not in heaven yet and can still choose to fall away. Once saved is not always saved, its He who endures to the end that shall be saved. (Matt 24, 13). Set your face like flint and follow Him in obedience and faith abiding in His word, full of His Spirit and grace.

DO YOU NEED HELP TO LIVE RIGHT?
Be encouraged that those in CHRIST have access by Faith to a continual abundant supply of Grace and Divine Power through the Holy Spirit. This is His provision to empower us to live a life worthy of His calling, in godliness, holiness, obedience, faith, love, good works, and to overcome the world, the flesh and all the traps of the enemy. Ask, receive and abide in His Spirit and power
– “To those who have obtained like precious FAITH with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: GRACE and peace be MULTIPLIED to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as HIS DIVINE POWER HAS GIVEN TO US to us ALL things that pertain to LIFE and GODLINESS, through the knowledge of HIM who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us Exceedingly Great and precious PROMISES, that through these you may be PARTAKERS of the DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2Pet1,1-4)
– “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Heb 4, 14-16)
– “the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses.” (Roms 8,26)
– “Sin will have no dominion over because you are not under law but under grace” (Rom 1,14)
– “For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.” (Roms 8,1)
– “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more” (Rev 3, 10-12)
To live an overcoming life it is key that you stay close to God, read His word, have a discipled prayer life, and worship in Spirit and Truth. His grace and help is abundantly available for all who would draw near.

ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED? NO! Do you believe in “Once Saved, Always Saved” (OSAS) teaching by some lukewarm preachers? If you do, you are being deceived by Satan. A backslidden preacher or backslidden Christian can end up in hell after death (2 Peter 2:1-22). Also, a cold/lukewarm Christian can be left behind by Jesus Christ on imminent Rapture day (Revelation 3:14-22). Therefore, as born again Christians, we must repent always from any known or hidden sins, be committed to soul winning and be ready always for imminent glorious Rapture. We can’t make heaven by personal efforts or self-righteousness. We can only make heaven by the great mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Is Your Name Written In The Book Of Life?
Revelation 20:15 declares, “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” The Book of Life, in this context, is the set of names of those who will live with God forever in heaven. It is the roll of those who are saved. This Book of Life is also mentioned in Revelation 3:5; 20:12; and Philippians 4:3. The same book is also called the Lamb’s Book of Life because it contains the names of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lord Jesus (Revelation 13:8; 21:27). How can you be sure your name is written in the Book of Life? Be sure you’re saved. Repent of sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (Philippians 4:3; Revelation 3:5).
Why Do You Need Jesus Christ As Your Personal Savior?
To be allowed to pass through heaven’s gate, you need to have all of your sins removed. The only cleanser strong enough to thoroughly remove sin stains is the blood of Jesus Christ. First, admit your sinful state. Next, ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your wrong doings. Finally, make Jesus Christ Lord of your life by surrendering your will to Him. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and to forgive your sins.
By dying on the cross, Jesus Christ made it possible for each of us to be granted a full pardon from the punishment of eternal damnation. The reason so few people accept this pardon is that they do not think they need a Savior or they want to find their own way of salvation. When God looked at your soul, He saw a sinner. God judges your heart, your thoughts, your attitude and intentions. God looks at the part of you that is not seen with the naked eye. When you are saved and forgiven of your sins, God looks upon you and sees the blood of Jesus Christ making you pure and clean. Only the blood of Jesus Christ can take away your sins. Without the blood of Jesus Christ cleansing you of your sins you are not worthy to stand in the presence of Almighty God and enter into heaven. Once Jesus Christ covers you in His blood, God accepts you as one of His children. God will take all His children straight to heaven on Rapture day. If you did not accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior or genuinely repent from your sins, you will be left behind on Rapture day. That will not happen to you in Jesus name. Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven (John 14:6).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26). “If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10). “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Changing Your Direction:
After making Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, you need to change the direction of your life. Once you realize you have been heading in the wrong direction, the only option that makes sense is to turn right around and start heading in the right direction. You cannot just say a few words and then continue on your merry way. You need to make a full commitment to Jesus Christ by reading His words (Bible) regularly and following His examples of holy living. Try to have a Bible if you don’t have one. Ask Jesus to help and lead you. “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and those are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14).
Jesus Christ Is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent
Jesus Christ is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. “Your throne, O God, will continue forever and ever…O Lord, in the beginning you made the earth and your hands made the sky…But You never change and Your life will never end.” (Hebrews 1:8-12). “Jesus said to them, Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58). “I and My Father are one.” (John 10:31). “I am the resurrection and the life.” (John 11:25).
The Bible speaks about God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. Christians refer to them as the “Trinity.” There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4-5), but He is embodied in three Persons. Jesus called God “the Father” and taught us to call Him our “Father in Heaven” (Matthew 6:9). Jesus lived in communion with his heavenly Father, always doing his will and recognizing him as truly and eternally God.
Before his ascension, Jesus Christ said he was going to his Father. Jesus Christ was God in the flesh. He came to reveal God’s nature by showing us how to live. He was loving, kind, and filled with God’s wisdom. He revealed how the power of God was available to answer prayer and solve problems.
Jesus Christ became the Son of God when He voluntarily came into the world in human form (Philippians 2:5-11). Jesus Christ was divinely conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit by Virgin Mary. The divine incarnation of Jesus Christ was necessary for our eternal redemption. “But Christ died for us while we were still sinners. In that way God showed us that He loves us very much” (Romans 5:8). “We have been made right with God by Christ’s blood (death). So through Christ we will surely be saved from God’s anger.” (Romans 5:9).
Jesus Christ died as a man, but God raised Him from the dead, to prove that He was the Son of God. When Jesus Christ was baptized, “the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased” (Luke 3:22). After Jesus Christ died and was raised from the dead, He sent the Holy Spirit to be present in the lives of people who believed in Him. The Holy Spirit guides us, leads us, empowers us, and is God’s presence with us in our daily lives.
Jesus Christ rose up on the third day after His redemptive death on the cross of Calvary (Matthew 28:1-8; Mark 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-10). Later, Jesus Christ went back to Heaven after His glorious resurrection (Mark 16:19-20; Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:9-11). Jesus Christ is the only way to make Heaven and escape from going to hell when you die (John 14:6).
Listen to what Jesus Christ is saying to you now: “Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the One who lives. I was dead, but look: I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and hell” (Revelation 1:17-18).
When you believe in Jesus Christ totally and that He was punished for your sins in your place; when you believe that God raised Him from the dead; when you accept Jesus as your Savior and make Him the Lord of your life; and when you choose to walk in obedience to God and His Word, then you receive the right to spend a glorious eternity in heaven with Him! You exchange your will for His. You exchange eternal condemnation in hell without Him for eternity in heaven with Him.
The Imminent Rapture. Be Ready Always!
Do you care for the Rapture? How often do you think about the Rapture? Or rather, are you prepared for the Rapture? Better still, do you have clear understanding of what Rapture is all about? It is an unpopular topic in churches today and so many Christians care less about it because it is not as enticing and motivating as prosperity, breakthrough, new things, favors, blessing and earthly success.
However, Rapture is a daily expectation and thought of the wise Christians while prosperity and earthly blessings are the focus for the lukewarm/cold Christians. Rapture is the catching away of the saints, which will happen within seconds and any moment one day (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 ). It is the first event of the end time advent when the angels of God will blow the trumpets, only Christians who are waiting for it, expecting it and preparing for it will make it. The simple clarification for self-examination here is that if you are thinking, waiting, preparing or expecting prosperity, miracle or anything more than Rapture, you will not make the Rapture. Only those who earnestly, eagerly wait and prepare for His (Jesus Christ) appearance more than anything else will eventually make it, just like the 5 wise virgins. Read Matthew 25.
Rapture is a glorious event of all generations; it is going to be splendid, wonderful and rewarding for the saints more than any event in the history of the world. Then it will leave behind gloom, doom and destructive reign of the Antichrist (666) during the tribulation period for people who will miss the Rapture. Jesus Christ gave us the signs, which will show that Rapture is very near, that should warn the wise to be more prepared. The two major signs are already present: CARE OF THIS WORLD through false preachers and GLOBAL WARMING. Read what Jesus Christ said:
CARE OF THIS WORLD: “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26, 27. “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:11-12.
The cares of this world has overcome many preachers, many churches and many Christians. It is not just the work of the devil; it is the sign of end time. The syndrome of prosperity, breakthrough, earthly blessings, and focus on being rich, having cars, houses, big businesses, the care for money, mansion, personal jets, make-ups, partying, obsessing sport passion are signs of end-time. It takes being wise to be warned.
GLOBAL WARMING & CRISIS: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8. The global crisis, weapon building are not just political or matters of misunderstanding, and it is to be naive and ignorant to see the present global warming, massive flooding, overheating, weather irregularities, earthquakes, etc as just scientific; but it is a global “warning” of the imminent rapture. The physical will see it as global warming, the spiritual will see it as “global warning”; the fool will call it scientific but the wise calls it prophetic.
Are you ready and prepared for the Rapture? You can become wise from here by repenting and totally rededicating your life to Jesus Christ. Surrender all, be a different Christian of old, biblical standard in your family, your church, your place of work, your business, your school, everywhere. Let your primary purpose be to please God, your primary focus to make heaven and your primary expectation to be raptured. Even if you can’t remember when last your pastors preached about the Rapture and Second Coming of Jesus, you should remember Lot’s wife (Genesis 19:23-26).
MATTHEW 24:42-44: “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Satan, the deceiver and his fallen angels/demons will be thrown and confined totally into the lake of fire and sulfur eventually by God. They will be tormented forever. That will be the end of Satan’s evil activities on earth forever. “The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur…and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10). You will be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire and sulfur. Your soul will never die but it will be eternally tormented in the horrible burning lake. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).
Jesus Christ is the only way to make Heaven and escape from going to hell when you die (John 14:6). The lake of fire and sulfur will be a place of eternal torment. It will be very terrible for Satan, demons and the lost souls in that eternal burning lake. Do not end up in it! The second death is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 21:8). Listen to what Jesus Christ is saying to you now: “Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the One who lives. I was dead, but look: I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and hell.” (Revelation 1:17-18). God does not send someone to hell. You choose hell when you refuse to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour.
When you refuse God’s love gift of eternal life in Jesus, you willingly choose hell. Your soul will be tormented for eternity in hell when you die. When you say “No” to Jesus and His payment for your sins, you are saying that you are looking forward to dying and being cast into hell. You are telling God that you do not need Jesus Christ. You will pay for your sins in hell. Hell is for eternity! If you die without accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ, you will be tormented in hell forever! You will despair of ever having any deliverance! You will beg for death to come and take you away! However, you can only die once (Hebrews 9:27). Purgatory is a false doctrine. Reincarnation is a great satanic deception. Do not let Satan deceive you with false doctrines again.
It will be a great disaster if you die without Jesus Christ (Mark 8:36). Hell is a place of eternal torment! “The smoke from their burning pain will rise forever and ever. There will be no rest, day or night.” (Revelation 14:11). God has a perfect place for you in heaven: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no person has imagined what God has prepared for those people that love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9). Avoid hell. Jesus is your only way of making heaven. It will not cost you anything to accept Jesus as your personal Saviour. Accept Jesus while you are still alive. It will be too late if you die and end up in hell. Take the right decision now. “The salvation that was given to us is very great. So surely we also will be punished if we live like this salvation is not important.” (Hebrews 2:3).
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-15).
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, ask Him to save you now! Confess all your sins and ask God to forgive you in Jesus name. Do not put it off another second! This may be your last chance before you die! Take the chance now! The salvation of Jesus is very important. Remain steadfast. Heaven will be your eternal home in Jesus name. It is very easy to accept the salvation of Jesus Christ.
