Salvation

Where will your soul end up when your body dies...
Heaven or Hell?
 
The Bible tells us clearly what the entry requirements are for Heaven.
 
 
 
 
 
We are all sinners worthy of Hell:

 "As it is written, There is none righteous, No, Not One. ...For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." Romans 3:10,23
 
"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." Isaiah 64:6

These six things doth the Lord hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running into mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among the brethren." Proverbs 6:16-19

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone..." Revelation 21:8

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

“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.”  Ezekiel 18:11
 
What does the Bible say about Hell:

“...hell fire, where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched…” Mark 9:47,48

“A lake of fire burning with  brimstone.”  Rev 19:20

"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power..." 2Thessalonians 1:8-9

" And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:2

“...and he shall be with fire and brimstone…  and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever and they have no rest day nor night….”  Rev 14: 10,11
 
Godly repentance is required:

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”   Luke 13: 3,5

"Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out...." Acts 3:19

"For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death." 2Corinthians 7:10

“...repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Acts 20:21

“...Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.”  Acts 11:18

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent”  Acts 17:30

“Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  Matt 4:27

“Jesus came...preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying… repent ye, and believe the gospel.”  Mark 1:14,15

“ And they went, out and preached that men should repent.”  Mark 6:12

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”  2Peter 3:9
 
Jesus Christ paid the price for our sin in full:

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins”  Col. 1:14

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus whom God hath set forth to be the propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins” Romans 3:24,25

“Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”  Romans 5:9

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”  Eph 1:7

“Wherefore also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood…” Hebrews 13:12

“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.  Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood “  Rev 1:5
 
Faith in the LORD Jesus Christ, ALONE, is required:

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.  I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain." Galatians 2:16,21 

"Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3

"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. ...but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:16,18

Be it known unto you all...that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead...this is the stone...which is become the HEAD OF THE CORNER...Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:10-12

But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

He that hath the son hath life and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:12

"Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me."   John14:6
 

 Your good works and your religious denomination will NOT get you into Heaven:

The thief on the cross did not do good deeds, nor did he join and serve in a church.  He confessed his worthiness of his fate and trusted in Christ as his LORD:
“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest to thy kingdom.  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”  Luke 23: 39 - 43

"But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." Gal. 3:11,24

“For by grace are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.”  Ephesians 2: 8,9

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost." Titus 3:5

“With the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED." Romans 10:10,13
 
You must make a choice:

"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 10:9
 
"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13

"Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins." 1 John 4:10

"Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." Isaiah 55:7

"Verily, Verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again. he cannot see the kingdom of God... Marvel not that I say unto thee, Ye must be born again." John 3:3,7

"Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls." 1 Peter1:9

"Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God..." Romans 2:25
 
God will not force us to trust him and his payment for our sin on the cross.  But the Bible is clear, if you reject his sacrifice as the sole payment  for your sin, you WILL go to Hell when you die!
 
**But…  If you will humble your self and come to God in repentance, trusting Jesus’s finished work on the cross alone as payment for your sins, according to to the scriptures, God promises to forgive your sin and give you Eternal Life.  
 
If you would like to trust Jesus as your Saviour, then right now, in simple faith pray:
 
"Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner deserving of hell.  
I know that Jesus died on the cross for for me.  
Please forgive me and be my LORD and Saviour.
In Jesus' name.  Amen."

"...him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37
 
"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."  1John 5:13

The Secure Promise:

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began." Titus 1:1

"And this is the record, that God hath given us eternal life, and this life is in his son. ...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." 1 John 5:11,13

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my father are one." John 10:28,29
