The Gift of Eternal Life
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23
Dr. Hank Lindstrom led me to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ years ago, and has since gone
home to be with the Lord, but his crystal clear presentation of the gospel lives on and on and on…
“For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8
HOW TO CLAIM THE GIFT OF GOD
(This is a lengthy message but since your eternal destiny depends on it, I pray you read it all)
Rule #1 The Holy Bible is the only book that you will use to confirm what I will be showing you. That is because it is God’s word, it is perfect. 2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” This phrase, given by inspiration of God, translates a single Greek word. Literally the word means God-breathed. If you follow God’s plan of salvation written down in His Holy Bible and you don’t get into heaven I think you would be able to stand in God’s presence in heaven itself and call Him a liar! (The Bible states many times that God cannot lie) Never rely on any other book or person, not the Pope, not Mohammed, not the Koran, not the book of Mormons, not Buddha, or any other book or person because your eternal life depends on it! The Bible is the only book in the world that has been PROVEN to be the word of GOD. You can prove the Bible to be God’s word just by looking at the things that were written in it about the coming Messiah. This information was given 500-1000 years before Jesus was born and yet each item came to pass exactly as written in the Bible. This is how God Himself tells us to identify His word, when the word comes to pass it was from Me and if it does not come to pass it was not from Me. The Bible has and continues to tell us of future events, hundreds if not thousands of years before they are to come to pass. No other book of any religion has proven it’s ability to tell the future like the Bible has for thousands of years. The Bible was not written by men but was written thru men by God Himself.
Rule #2 There is only ONE way to get to heaven. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Notice the bible verse does not say (Jesus is A way); because that wording would mean that He is one of many ways. The Jews have one way, the Muslims have another way and the Christians have even more ways depending on the denomination. If you’re church, synagogue, or mosque tells you that there is ANOTHER way to heaven other than thru the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, run don’t walk to the nearest exit and NEVER go back! I am not trying to get you to join my church or get you to convert to my religion or get you to buy a prayer cloth or some other ridiculous item. I am warning you of the dangers of being in any false religion! No religion can save you! The only thing that matters is WHO you are trusting to get you to heaven. Galatians 3:6 “Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness”Abraham was saved, given eternal life, made righteous just like we are today, he believed (trusted) God! Abraham was not a member of ANY church, he was not water baptised, he did not have any Priest or Rabbi or Imam praying over him. All he did was trust what God told him about the coming Messiah who would wash him of his sins. What we do in this age is exactly the same, Trust God by believing, trusting in the Messiah that came 2000 years ago who washes us of all our sins and we are then given the Gift of God, Eternal Life and His righteousness.
Rule #3 Jesus is God in the flesh, the Creator of all things seen and unseen, the giver of ALL life, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father. John 14:7 “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him” You can see in this passage Jesus is saying very clearly when you see me you have seen the Father! That’s why when Jesus (God) died on the cross to pay for our sins, we can be sure that He paid for ALL our sins past, present and future. Do you really think that you going to church every Sunday or you giving your 5, 10 or 20 dollars a week to church is going to put a dent in the vast amount of sins you have committed during your life? It won’t! When you do good things in order to help yourself get into heaven it’s like spitting in Gods face! You are basically saying that you appreciate what He did on the cross 2000 years ago, you appreciate Him suffering and dying for your sins, but just in case it’s not enough to get ME to heaven here is a few of MY good works to put me over the top. Most people don’t understand that God is a trinity, (3 parts in 1 God) but you can see for yourself that God IS a trinity by just reading the Old Testament for yourself with a passage like Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness…” notice God clearly says “in OUR image” God is a triune God, God the Father = the Soul, God the Son = the Body, God the Spirit = the Spirit, but put all three together and it equals one God. It is hard for us to understand, but when you see that we are made in His likeness it becomes a little clearer. We were created with a soul like God the Father (that’s the real you, your personality, your memories, your very essence), we also have a body like God the Son, Jesus (this is how we interact with this world, we can see, hear, feel and act upon this world whether for good or bad it’s our choice), and we also have a spirit like God the Holy Spirit (this is how we communicate with God in Heaven, thru our spirit). We really were created in his image, three separate parts (Body, soul and spirit) in one package. When you get to heaven you will not see God the Father (the soul of the trinity) like an old man with white hair and a long white beard because he is desribed as pure unwavering light, and you will not see the Holy Spirit either because he is an invisible spirit. What you will see is Jesus Christ who is God in the flesh. You will see the scars on his hands and feet, and the scar in his side from the spear of the roman soldier; that is how you will be able to identify God in heaven… look for the scars that he got while on this earth paying for all of your sins!!!
Rule #4 You will never get to heaven by being good. The Bible says in Rom 3:10 “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one.” and Rom 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” So if you try to get to heaven by being good and following the Ten Commandments, the Bible is guaranteeing that you will fail! All the false religions of the world teach that good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell. The problem is that no one is reading their Bible that CLEARLY states that ALL have sinned and that there is NONE righteous no, not one. It only takes one little lie to send you to hell forever and all of us have told a lie! You must be absolutely perfect to enter heaven. The wages of sin is death (Hell). There is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood. You need a blood sacrafice to pay for your life of sinning! You have no blood sacrifice and you WILL die in your sins if you continue to practice in any of the false religions of the world! One example of a false religion is the Jewish Faith, you are indeed God’s chosen people and Jerusalem is God’s Holy City but the vast majority of Jews will go to Hell when they die because they continue to reject their Messiah Yeshua, (Jesus) the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Jesus is your blood sacrafice and if you die without trusting Him as the lamb without spot you will be the one paying for your sins in hell forever. All you need to do is read the Bible for yourself so that you can learn how to identify the Messiah when you see Him.
The Messiah must.
-be born of a virgin Isa 7:14
-be born in Bethlehem Micah 5:2
-be crucified with thieves Isa 53:12
-be sold for 30 pieces of silver Zech 11:12
-have His hands and feet pierced Psalm 22:16
-have his clothes fought & gambled over at his death Psalms 22:18
-be God Himself in the flesh Isa 9:6
-be crucified and shed his blood to pay for our sins Isa 53:6
-be risen from the dead Isa 53:10
-the temple would be destroyed AFTER the Messiah had come and given His life Dan 9:26
Jesus did all these things and more exactly as the Old Testament said He would. Don’t wait for your Rabbi to tell you these things because they won’t, they want to keep you in the dark. I want to bring you into the light with the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Rule #5 Your religion will not save you. Those practicing the Jewish religion will go to hell because they have no blood sacrifice to cover their sins. YOUR sins must be covered by a blood sacrifice before you die. The Jewish people have no temple and they have no priests. All these things were taken away from them by God because they rejected Him 2000 years ago when He walked into the temple that was built for Him as Jesus (Yeshua) and told them He was God. The Jewish people of the day however loved Jesus (Yeshua) and witnessed all of His miracles and were amazed. The Jewish rulers were the ones who plotted to kill Him because he was about to make the Jewish faith obsolete. The Jewish leaders of this day are still leading their followers away from the true God who we Christians call Jesus and the Jewish people call Yeshua the Messiah. They are one in the same, God in the flesh. Why did the Jewish rulers arrest Jesus (Yeshua) in the middle of the night? Simple, the Jewish people would not have allowed anyone to lay hold of Him during the day because they loved and worshipped Him. No other man before or after Jesus has raised a man from the dead after 4 days (Lazarus) John 11:38-45, or gave sight to a man born blind John 9:1-7, or told someone crippled 38 years to get up and he did John 5:1-9. They rejected their Messiah Yeshua and because they did, God has blinded them to the truth and has turned to the Gentiles for the past 2000 years. Jesus is Yeshua, the God that saves His people from their sins, trust in Him and receive forgiveness for all your sins and eternal life. Read the Old Testament for yourself and see how to identify the real Messiah! Do not expect your Rabbi to tell you, because he is the one who is keeping you in darkness. Pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and ask him to open your eyes, so that you may see His truth, and He will answer that prayer even if He has not answered any other prayer.
Those practicing the Muslim religion will go to hell because they are following another book and are worshipping another god. The Koran is NOT the word of God nor is it holy. They do not believe that Jesus is God; they believe He is a prophet of God. Jesus said that if you do not believe that I AM you will die in your sins. John 8:24 “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” What He meant by that statement is that you must believe that He (Jesus) is God himself in the flesh in order for your sins to be paid for by Him. The Muslims are worshiping the Moon god Allah, a pagan god, not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who is the real God of the Bible. It is just another religion made up in a man’s imagination and promoted by the devil, sword and gun, a false religion indeed. So many souls are being led needlessly to hell because of this false religion. I use the word led because you can go to the nearest exit of the mosque and never look back any time you want. God will always protect the man or woman or child who is diligently searching for Him, thru war, thru famine, thru any calamity He will protect you from anything and anyone and no harm will come to you if you truly are searching for the truth. This goes for any false religion that you may be stuck in at this time. The Jewish ruler Nicodemus, was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin and came to Jesus in the middle of the night in order to find out how to get to heaven. He knew if he came during the day he would be thrown out of the synagogue or worse. Do not fear the one who can kill the body, fear instead the One that can kill the soul. An Arab Woman named Ruth who came from a Muslim country made her decision known in this Bible passage. Ruth 1:16-17 “Do not urge me to leave you or return from following you,” she said. “For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. “Your people shall be my people, and your God my God…” This was a great Arab woman of the Bible and one of the great stories of the bible. Do not fear those that ARE leading you to the slaughter of Islam, leave while you still have the breath in your lungs to run to the Lord God Jesus Christ!
Those practicing the False Christian religions will go to hell if they don’t follow Gods REAL plan of salvation as stated in the Bible. The devil knows that he can deceive many more people by having churches that look, smell, and taste like a real Christian church but are just a little bit off on doctrine. This little bit off that I am speaking of is usually adding a little bit of works to the plan of salvation.
If your church says that in order to have eternal life.
-you need to turn away from your sin,
-you need to give your life to Jesus,
-you need to give money to the church,
-you need to go to church every week,
-you need to confess your sins to a priest,
-you need to ask Jesus into your heart,
-you need to be a member of our church,
-you need to be water baptized,
-you can lose your salvation
-you can’t know that you are saved right now
…run don’t walk to the nearest exit and never go back!!!
These are ALL false doctrines promoted by the devil and his demons!!! The god of this world is the devil and if you don’t think so just read about all the pain and suffering that is going on all over this world.
Rule #6 Forget everything you’ve ever learned in any church if you did not personally look the information up in the Bible! I have found that over 99% of the religions being taught on this earth are wrong. I know how crazy it sounds but it is very true. That means if you have 100 churches in your town only 1 will be teaching correctly and giving you the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible clearly states in Matt 7:13-14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat, Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” You must be looking for this narrow path that leads to Heaven. Do you want to be in the huge group on the wide path that leads to destruction or do you want to be in the small group that has found the narrow path that is Jesus? I plan to show you that narrow path that leads to Heaven and I expect you to confirm everything I tell you by checking everything I say against what the Bible says. This is the most important decision of your life so don’t take it lightly. Some churches are way off from what the Bible teaches and some are just a little bit off. In order to get to heaven you MUST be 100% correct according to the Bible, not according to me, so please check and recheck all the information I give you against the word of God.
May God open your eyes, ears and heart to His truth, may He protect those who are truly seeking Him and His plan of salvation, and may He bless and protect this ministry and our website as we do His will of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. In Jesus name we pray, amen
“Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift” (II Corinthians 9:15)
The golden key to your salvation, eternal life is Trust / Faith / Belief. All three basically mean the same thing, To lean upon, to cast your weight upon or to TRUST. In order to receive this Gift of God, you must transfer the trust that you had in a church, synagogue, Mosque or yourself and put all your trust in Jesus Christ. The moment you do this, God in Heaven knows and He saves you now and forever. Who do you trust right now to get you to heaven… be honest and think about it? ALL of the false religions are telling you to put your trust in yourself or them. The Jewish person must follow a set of rules which state what they can and cannot do and what they can and cannot eat and when they can and cannot worship. If you do these things you will go to Heaven and if YOU don’t do these things you will go to Hell. That makes you the savior, not God. I will repeat this again, it makes you the savior! The Muslim person must pray 5 times a day, they must give to the poor, and they must make a pilgrimage to Mecca if able to do so financially. They must be a good person and if so, God might show them favor and allow them into Heaven. Again, guess who the real savior is: you are, again. The false Christian must go to church every week, must give 10% of his income, must confess his sins, must be water baptized, must keep the faith all the days of his life, and live a good life. Again he is the savior. If he is good he will go to Heaven and if he is bad he will go to Hell when he dies. ALL false religions make you the savior. This statement is very, very important! Think about the church you are in right now… what happens if you stop doing what they keep telling you to do every week. You will go to Hell. But on the other hand what happens if you do all the things that they tell you to do, you might get to Heaven. It’s not even a sure thing when you go thru all the hoops! What you are doing is trusting in YOUR actions to get you to heaven! If you really want to know if you are going to heaven or hell just ask yourself who is MY savior. If the answer is my Church, Synagogue, Mosque, Rabbi, Priest, Buddha or yourself consider yourself toast when you die!
If on the other hand you can say.
-I am a sinner in need of a Savior.
-The wages of my sin is death (Hell).
-I understand I must be perfect to enter Heaven.
-I understand I cannot save myself.
-I understand that Jesus made a complete payment for all my sins.
-I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior.
-I believe Him to be God in the flesh.
-I believe he shed his blood & died on the cross to pay MY sins.
-I believe he was buried and rose from the dead after three days and three nights.
The moment you put your trust in Jesus Christ ALONE, God who can read your mind knows, saves YOU, makes you perfect in His eyes, and gives you the Gift of God, Eternal Life.
You do not need anyone to pray over you, or pray for you, because this is between you and God in heaven. Because of your new trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ you are now a child of God. Before you trusted in Jesus, God was your creator but now and forevermore he will be your father.
You are saved in a moment of time, because you are trusting in the true Savior now, not working your way to heaven day by day which is not even possible.
Once saved you can never be lost, for any reason. This is because you were born spiritually the moment you put your trust in Him. Just like your physical birth which brought you into this human world, your spiritual birth gave you a new spiritual life that is permanent. You were born-again, made righteous and holy in Gods eyes. In fact you have the righteousness of God himself, your are sinless and perfect in God’s eyes now and that’s why you can enter into a perfect heaven.
My favorite saying is.
God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved.
You MUST put ALL your trust in Jesus to be saved, trust in the blood that He shed on the cross, trust that He is God in the flesh, trust that He made the complete payment for your sins, not just part; He paid for ALL of your sins (past, present, and future)! Trust that He rose again from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights, and in return for this trust, He gives YOU Eternal Life. All false Christians put part of their trust in Jesus and part of their trust the Church and part of their trust in themselves. If you put 99.99% trust in Jesus and 00.01% in something else, you will go to hell. It must be 100% trust in Jesus and what He did and 0% in you or your church! This information in critical… (adding your works to Gods plan of salvation will cancel out Gods grace!) You are going to hell if it’s by your works or you are going to heaven by Gods grace alone. It’s as simple as that.
So I guess the question comes down to who are you trusting. Are you trusting yourself to get to heaven by being a good person and giving lots of money to your church or are you trusting Jesus, the lamb of God, that was slain for the sins of the world to get you to heaven? You receive the Gift of God (Eternal Life) as soon as you stop trusting in yourself, your church, your synagogue, your mosque, your money, or any other works and put your trust in Him and Him ALONE, Jesus Christ, Yeshua, The King of Kings, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, the Alpha and Omega, the Mighty God.
False religions are everywhere and they will find you, the one true God and His plan of salvation must be found.
If all this makes sense to you and you would like to trust Jesus as your personal Savior right now then tell the Mighty God in Heaven of your decision to trust Jesus Christ as your only hope of heaven. Tell Him that you are no longer putting your trust in your actions, or your church, or your church membership, or in your money, or in your Rabbi, or in your synagogue or your Mosque but that you are putting all of your trust in Him and the shed blood of the cross to pay your sin debt. Thank Him for doing it for you! Thank Him for giving you the Gift of Eternal Life that He paid for with His life. There is no greater deed than that of laying down your life for another.
Will you trust Jesus as your Savior right now, the one who shed His precious blood on the cross of Calvary to pay for all your sins?
Lord, I admit that I’m a sinner & I don’t understand a whole lot about the bible, but I do believe that Jesus Christ died & paid for my sins in full, by His death & shed blood on the cross. I trust right now the He died for me, was buried & rose again from the dead and will live forever more. I trust Jesus Christ right now to save me, to be my savior, to forgive my sins & to give me the GIFT OF GOD Eternal Life. Amen
By reading this sinners prayer aloud, you are putting your trust in God and His plan of salvation. You are not saved by saying this prayer, you are saved the moment your mind made the switch from trusting in yourself to putting your COMPLETE TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST. That moment may have been five paragraphs up on this page or that moment may have been on another one of our pages. You will not feel any different, but you will be changed and changed for the better forever. Once you have trusted Jesus as your savior and received his gift of eternal life, this gift can NEVER be lost. You can NEVER go to hell for ANY reason. Your past, present and future sins were paid in full the moment you put your trust in Him. You are blameless and Holy in God’s eyes now and FOREVER. If you have eternal life today what kind of life will you have in five years? ETERNAL! What kind of life will you have in ten years? ETERNAL!! What kind of life will you have in 50 years? ETERNAL!!! God does not give probationary life or temporary life, His gift is ETERNAL LIFE! Thanks be to GOD!
Why be good, now that I am assured of going to heaven? Because God’s law of sowing and reaping still applies to you and me. You will reap what you sow. You will reap more than you sow and you will reap later than you sow. If you drink alcohol like a fish, you will reap a diseased liver. If you smoke like a chimney everyday, you will reap lung cancer. If you rob, murder, and steal you will reap a life in prison. You will reap what you sow. I guarantee it! Now that you are saved, when you do good things you WILL be rewarded here on earth and in Heaven. And when you do bad things you WILL lose rewards that God had planned on giving you here on earth and in Heaven. But you will NEVER lose your guarantee of going to heaven. That can never be lost for any reason!! You have God’s word that your salvation can never be lost for any reason. You did not earn salvation and you do not work to keep salvation! Eternal Life, salvation, being born again, becoming a child of God, was, is, and always will be the GIFT OF GOD.
Remember: If your not saved forever… you are not saved!
Why is this true you might ask? Because if a person is not sure that they are saved TODAY / RIGHT NOW it means that they are still trying to be the savior! They can’t be sure they are going to heaven because they don’t know what sin’s they may commit next week, next month or next year. We who have trusted in Jesus alone, can have comfort knowing that all our sins have been paid in full on the Cross of Calvary (past, present, and future sins). Jesus has already died for my sins so I don’t need to pay for any sin I have or will commit in the future because Jesus already paid the price in full with His blood. So called Christians who say that you can lose your salvation because of suicide or murder or falling away from the church don’t have a clue what the Bible says and clearly have not trusted Jesus ALONE!
Biblical Salvation is forsaking any other means of salvation but Christ and casting ourselves fully upon Him for eternal life.
The Gift of God, Eternal Life can never be lost once possessed for any reason. John 6:39 ” And this is the Father’s will which hath sent Me, that of all which He hath given Me I should LOSE NOTHING, but should raise it up again at the last day.” You have God’s promise that once you put your trust in Jesus you can never be lost for ANY reason whatsoever.
“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” Romans 11:29 Again, God is telling you that this Gift of God that you have just received is without repentance. He can never take His gift back for any reason, no matter how bad you get, or how bad your sins are it is not possible. God would have to cease to exist for that to happen because He cannot lie.
