First one must understand that no one is perfect. That every single person who has ever been born of man has done wrong in their life. No matter how good they are, no matter the wonderful things they may do, they have done wrong, and will continue to do wrong until they die.

Psalms 14:2,3 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

So here we see that we are all pretty much put in our place. Not one of us is any better than anyone else. A wrong is a wrong. A sin is a sin. No matter what the wrong, no matter what the sin. In Gods eyes they are all the same. Everyone of us is condemned.



John 3:17,18 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.



In Matthew 1:20 it states ...for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Jesus was conceived of the Holy Ghost. Jesus was not conceived by man. Jesus was perfect, without sin, just as his father. Jesus said in Matthew 6:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

One day many of us will stand before Jesus. There will be at least two judgments given to the people of the earth. One will be to reward those who believe in Jesus.

John 1:12 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:

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:13 for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

If we have called on Jesus, recognized that we have sinned and ask that he forgive us. We are forgiven. No matter what we have done.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We are no longer of the world. We are his, and cannot be taken from him.

John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Now it is no longer a question of where we will spend eternity, for we will be forever with the lord!

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Revelation 4:1... "Come up hither"...

a voice as a trumpet, and John was in the spirit before the throne and one sat on the throne. Those who travel here will not be judged by their works, their sin, these have no sin. They are not of the world. They belonged to the Father ever since they chose Jesus. They will be given crowns, rewards, Matthew 16:27 Second Timothy 4:8 Revelations 22:12. and their place and status will be decided by what they have done for God, when they are asked , what have you done for me? Do you see? are you beginning to understand now how we have been forgiven? Do you see what he has done for us? He has forgiven us, everything we have ever done, everything that we may ever do wrong in the future, and we will dwell in his house forever.

1 Peter 4:17,18 For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

For us who understand Gods love for us, and the plan that He has for us we need not fear ever having to stand in this judgement. For we have excepted His gift of life, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved,...

2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Once we have received Jesus into our life we must keep in mind that we now aware of our adversary, Satan. He has realized that he has now lost us to Jesus. We will not be with him in his future home, hell. So now he will do the best he can to keep us from telling others about Jesus. He will do the best he can to make things hard for us. He is a notorious liar who has kept us from Jesus until now. He has been lying to people ever since he deceived Eve in the garden of Eden. We must learn how to ward off his attacks by reading Gods word (the Bible) and praying often to our new Father in Heaven. If you are fortunate to live in a country where you can worship with others. I recommend that you find a church that is teaching the love of Jesus, and the wonder of your new found salvation.

(If you feel so inclined, please pass this on)
