HOW DID IT BEGIN?
Many people are not sure if they need saviour or not. Many are so confused that they see things of God as “Controversial and complex to understand”. This is another lie from the enemy of God, who always seeks to misrepresent God as confusing being, and cruel judge seating on heavens; pointing finger of judgement on mankind. On contrary, thing of God are simple to understand and are presented as plain truth. They are so clear that everyone who is in search for truth, will find it. Let us now make journey through word of God to see whether Man need saviour or not and why!
To understand this well we need to study life from Man’s creation, to our day. How life started and why we are in chaotic world, where every evil is present. The Bible contains all answers to these questions. I encourage you to go with me in this study until we conclude the matter. Let us start by asking question; where did first Man come from. We know that there must be the first Man from whom all other men came from. Yes there was! But puzzling question: where did He come from? Man has tried to answer this question in various ways. But there are two popular theories; Creation and evolution. This will be discussed on another page but to summarize, no one, who is intellect enough to ask for evidence will buy a lie of evolution. It is neither scientific, nor logic! The only true theory remains is creation. The Bible has the answer for our question:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
(Gen 1:26-27 )
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (Gen 2:15-17 )
Now we have an answer that, God made man after His own Image. We now know that God made man to have dominion over God’s creation on earth. We also know that God created Man, male and female He created them. The word of God goes on saying that Eden was the first place Man lived here on earth. It was wondeful garden planted by God Himself. Man’s task was to dressit and keep it. No toil to eat, everything went smoothly. Word of God tells us more that God set rules regarding trees in the garden. God gave Man to eat every tree of the garden with exceptional of tree of knowledge of evil and good. He told them the very day that they will eat, death will have the door to human race. Here was Man’s choice: eat the fruit and rebel against God, or abstain from it and be obedient to God. Now we have summary of how man came to exist. The next question is, did Man continue to be faithful to God? The scripture once again contains answer!
Gen 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Here the Bible introduces us another creature, the serpent. The most notable thing here is that; the serpent is introduced as “He” and not “It”. This shows us this serpent is a personal rather that animal. The Bible defines this old serpent as the devil and satan. Book of revelation gives us insight of this serpent: Rev 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. So we see this serpent conversating with the woman questioning God’s rules by saying “Hath God said?” then this creature point to woman that God was liar, and that He selfishly forbid them to eat that tree beacause He knew that the day they will eat they shall be gods! What the devil was trying to persuade woman to do is very clear: “This is hidden secret I give you woman! God is so selfish that He have forbidden you to eat the tree. Trust me if you eat that tree you shall be as God Himself knowing good and evil” We see here seducing character of this most subtle beast! Next question will be: What was womans response to the devil? Who did she choose to believe and obey ? Who was true between the devil and God? Let’s go on! The scripture have got the answer!
Gen 3:6-7 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Scripture is very clear that woman chose to believe the devil. The tree that she used to shun, was now looking attractive. She now saw that tree contained wisdom! He forgot everything God told her. Without any evidence she chose to believe the devil! She ate the fruit and gave to her husband and he ate it also. Let me clear a hoax that is well spread that the fruit here symbolizes sexual organ and eating the fruit is sexual intercourse! Only fool can believe that. If God is real, man is real, and serpent is real, why fruit be symbolic? Another refute is that Woman ate the fruit herself, alone! this ridicule that theory. Also in midst of Garden were two trees (Gen 2:9). It will be ridiculous to say that was symbol of two sexual organs on same creature. This theory is fabricated lie to justify sexual perversion. Another lie from the enemy!
Let us go back to our study. We see here that when they ate the fruit, their eyes were opened! Then you can ask the question here: Was the devil right? For he told them and it happened. Remember God and the devil cannot be right at the same time. One must be right and another wrong! Let us take what they both said and see what was true. God said, if they will eat the fruit they will surely die. The devil said they will not die for sure! Then one will ask himself, who was right then? Scripture have an answer!
Gen 3:8-13 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
Gen 3:14-19 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Gen 3:22-24 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Here we see that God, as He usually did, visited Man on Eden. For the first time we see Man hiding from his creator! For the first time fear enters Man. God asked Adam whether he had eaten the forbidden tree. This doesn’t mean that God didn’t knew that. Adam knew that God have seen everything and he tried to make excuse for his sin. This behavior have been inherited by all Man kind, children of Adam. God then turns to another Adam, the woman. She also had excuse for her sin! “The serpent beguiled me”. No body is confessing here! All are trying to throw their sin to another. But what is God asking here? Is simple question that only demand yes or no! The question is: “Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” In other words God is telling Man that Have you rebelled against my law? This is always a difficult part of accused person before the judge!
We see here very strange thing happening. God didn’t question “serpent hast thou done this?” But why? You cannot get an answer until understand words of Lord Jesus on John 16:11 “Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” Serpent, or satan as we saw earlier, is already judged. He predated existence of Eden and His judgement was pronounced earlier before Eden. We will see this more in my coming teaching on satan, arch-enemy of mankind and God. So here God was prophesying to satan than to pronounce judgement. He was foretelling him what is going to happen next, in the move. He was telling His enemy that “You think you can defeat my purpose, but my will shall stand and I will do whatever I want for I’m the LORD God” You can say, wait a minute! Where are those words? I will show you what God meant by His words
We see here God cursing serpent, and making very outstanding prophecy ever “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed” Note the word seed here. Woman produced many seeds including me and you. But God meant one special seed among seeds of woman, shall bruise the head of satan himself (note the word thy head). So God was saying here, there is special seed, chosen one, that will come to accomplish my will, by first bruising your head. This chosen seed is “The Anointed one”, messiah in Hebrew and Christ in Greek. Here is very first promise of God to do His will through seed of woman. As we will study More under the teaching Messiah in escatology, this seed is only hope to Man. Satan understood what God said. That’s why throughout history he have been fighting against this seed. He had many attempts to destroy this seed through Cain, Essau, Herod and so many others. But God is sovereign and He is in control!
Second to be dealt was woman. God sentenced her, that, he will multiply her sorrows in bringing forth children. Here we see for first time sorrow entering the scene. Birth is with pains and full of sorrows. Another curse to womani was “thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” This, God’s statement here drives feminists crazy. God put this curse on woman, that her desire (her longing, craving, demand for gratification)will be her husband! Not only that, but her husband shall rule (reign, have dominion, govern, have power) her. This was curse and not God’s original intention ” I will make him an help meet for him” Man is to be ruler and Woman servant. So were these curses place upon woman.
Last to be dealt was man. It is not amazing God started asking Adam first when things went wrong, because He was leader on the first Marriage and was directly responsible to God for his marriage. Woman was to be a helper! This distribution of authority will be more explaine in coming teachings under Maritology. Adam’s sin was exalting her wife over God by obeying her than God’s command. That made him transgressor and riped what he sowed. “Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life”. Land is the source of all income. Minerals, computers, food and all thing you see, have one connection or another to the ground. Here God cursed all source of income. He goes on elaborating that thorns will grow on land and by sweat (toil)man will live until the day he die. This curse was accompanied with remainder that Man is dust. What does this means? This reminds us that, although God have given us all we have, He remains to be God and we Men. Not otherwise. In other words God is saying here, you cannot be gods, you will remain Men!
Let’s go back to our question we asked before: God said, if they will eat the fruit they will surely die. The devil said they will not die for sure! Then one will ask himself, who was right? We have the answer in scriptures. What if you find in “Ex Edenian News” headlines “Elohim’s Statement Fulfilled” and you turn to pages to see what happened. And as you open first page you find these words ” Being predicted many years by LORD God in garden of Eden that Men will die by reason of transgressing His law, at last those words are today fulfilled in our very eyes. The Adam’s family have witnessed first death of their beloved son. There were heard mournings and cries over the whole family……” You can start thinking what Mother could have said! May be If I only listened to God! If only I couldn’t have eaten the tree! But it is too late to reverse. Perhaps you think this is fiction! You are wrong! it really happened! Though not in the way I put as Magazine, but it happened! Scripture records this first murder in Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. First death on Earth since creation! We can conclude from this scripture that God was right and satan was wrong. He lied to Woman and caused her to sin! From there the world which was once in peace and harmony at Eden became chaotic world and evils started slowly dominating the Earth.
Before go any futher, let us review some facts we have seen so far. That God created Man in His Image, Male and Female he created them. satan beguiled Woman through his subtility and made her believe wrong way, and hence led to fall of Man, both Male and Female. And that God, through His love, promised “special seed” born of woman to accomplish His plans for which He created the universe including destruction of His enemy, satan. And that God pronounced just sentences and curses upon Man, including death. And that due to way God created Man as soul body and spirit, that death meant soul will die, body will die and spirit will die. Having known these we can now go further to explore what happens to our day. The question remains: Does we need saviour, and why? But one Mystery is solved and facts established. Man is now sinner doomed to death, physical death of body and everlasting death of Soul and spirit.
MEASURE OF WHAT IS RIGHT BEFORE GOD – LAW OF GOD IN TEN COMMANDMENTS
How can we know what is right and what is wrong before God? What is sin? What is wage of sin? These might be your questions. If not ask yourself those questions and try to answer them. It will be easier to know if we need saviour (somebody to save us) if only we are in danger that None of us can save. The only thing will make us need another body to pay for us is when we cannot pay back debt that bank owes us. The Bank doesn’t care where money comes from! What it needs is legal Money. Any counterfeit money will not be accepted. We don’t need somebody to pay for us if we can do it! Having those concept in Mind, let’s find out whether we need saviour or not!
God provided standard law for every human. These laws are widely known as “Ten Commandments” As Moral Absolutes. They are laws by which God judges whether you are guility before him or not. It is by these laws God pronounces His judgement upon human race. If that is the case, that those are “Laws of God”, before checking ourselves against them, let’s define another mysterious word, “sin”.
Scripture defines sin as transgression of law: 1John3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. To transgress is to offend by
violating a law. But which law is being talked about here? Scriptures gives us answer in the book of James 2:9-11
But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
We see here the law being talked about; Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not Kill….the Ten commandment. Scripture tells us that if we keep whole law and only violate one law, then, we are guility of violating whole law for the same is law giver. Concerning this, Apostle Paul wrote:
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. Galatians 3:10
That means, even if you keep all nine and violate one, you are condemned! Lets have simple example. Suppose you are a judge, and before you is somebody found guilty of theft according to law governing the country. The law is clear that He deserves three years imprisonment. As law dictates, He is given chance to defend himself and he says, “Your majesty judge, I acknowledge that I have violated one law. But before and after steal, I was very good man. I helped poor. I have one school where disabled freely study. further more I gave my own house to be orphanage”.As just judge will that be enough to make him not guilty of theft? Absolutely not! Let’s see then If we are guilty or not before God by measuring ourselves against His laws, the Ten Commandment.
- LAW NUMBER ONE- THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER gods BEFORE ME. (Exodus 20:3)
You can guess very first type of god I’m going to deal with! god you created in your mind. Have you ever said my god cannot send people to hell, my god cannot heal, my god cannot do this and that? any attribute you are giving God in your mind that do not belong to Him, is another god! If you have ever done this, even if once, you have transgressed this law. God will find you guility on day of judgement for violating this law.
Other gods, are all other gods who are not True God, as clearly indicated in opening book of the Bible: Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
If you worship another God, apart from one who made heavens and earth, You are worshiping another god. That will make you guilty on judgement day of great God! Here you are confused right? How can I know who created heavens and earth? All religions says and claims that their god created the heavens and earth! Yes it is possible to know that! Just go with me to the end, and you will have your question answered! Just be open to the truth whether it favours your position or religion or not! But once you discover your current god is not one who created the universe, if you died yesterday, you would have died guility of that sin! Praise God, Maker of heavens and earth that you are alive and you are about to discover him!
- LAW NUMBER TWO – THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF TO NOR SERVE GRAVEN IMAGES (Exodus 20:4-6 )
This commandment reveals jelous characteristic of true God. Let us read what this commandment says;
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:4-6 )
Have you ever bowed before statue of Mary? Have you bowed before Kaaba? Have you bowed before anything that is not God? If answer is yes, You are guilty of violating this law. In the day of judgement of great God, you will be Guilty. Even if I did once? Answer is yes? It was once! But you transgressed it! The commandment doesn’t end there! It goes further to say even serving them, is rebellion against this law. Here many are caught. Does you serve your computer, Television, car, wife , Husband radio or any other Idol? Anything that takes place of God to you becomes Idol to you and when you serve anything in place of God, then you have made your graven image and you are serving them! What this makes you, is guility before almighty God, Maker of heavens and Earth!
- LAW NUMBER THREE – THOU SHALT NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN (Exodus 20:7 )
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7 )
Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. (Mat 5:33-37 )
Have you ever bear name of God in vain? Even once? Have you ever blasphemed God in your heart? Have you cursed God due to any reason? Have you said anything against His Name? Any of these means transgression against this law. You are not guiltless before God!
- LAW NUMBER FOUR – REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY ,TO KEEP IT HOLY (Exodus 20:8 )
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (Exo 20:8-11)
Have you kept sabbath all your life without missing it? Have you done all that are commanded in Holy Sabbath? Not doing any work in that day? Remember it includes thou,thy son, thy daughter, thy manservant, thy maidservant, thy cattle, thy stranger that is within thy gates! If you have never done this, or miss it once, you are guilty of breaking Holy Sabbath! God will hold you guilty of violating His Sabbath commandment!
- LAW NUMBER FIVE – HONOUR THY FATHER AND THY MOTHER (Exodus 20:12)
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Exo 20:12 )
Have you ever, didshonour your parents by any reason? Have you ever cursed them, or blaspheme them? Have you ever abused them? Have you ever hurted them with your abusive words? Have you ever renounced them as your parents? If you have ever dishonoured thy parents, you are guility of violating God’s command, and in great day of Judgement, you will be guility! Even once in your life will make you guilty!
- LAW NUMBER SIX – THOU SHALT NOT KILL (Exo 20:13)
Thou shalt not kill. (Exo 20:13)
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. (Mat 5:21-22 )
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (1John 3:15 )
Have you ever hated one person on earth? Have you ever been angry at one person without a cause? Have you ever murdered a person physically? Have you ever said to a person I hate you? Even if done once in Life, it is all Murderer before God. You have committed murder and God will hold you worth to be in Hell fire on great day of judgement!
- LAW NUMBER SEVEN – THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY (Exodus 20:14)
Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14)
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (Mat 5:27-28)
Have you ever slept with someone who is not your wife or husband? Before you get married, have you ever have sexual realtions with any girl or boy? Have you lusted at someone who isn’t your spouse? Have you ever desired to have sex with someone a part from your marriage? Actually all these are Adulteries before God! Whether made in heart or in physical realm, the case is, it is adultery! It all deserves punishment of adultery! Have you ever done it even once? Yes means you are guility!
- LAW NUMBER EIGHT – THOU SHALT NOT STEAL (Exodus 20:15)
Thou shalt not steal. (Exo 20:15)
Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value or cost? From your parents: money for candy, or another body’s stuffs in school, leave the work place before legal time, or any other thing including your time for your children, is theft! Whether you steal billions of shillings or just one dollar, it doesn’t matter! What matters is, you stole it! And that makes you a thief, worth for sentence. God will found you guility on judgement day by violating this law!
- LAW NUMBER NINE – THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS (Exodus 20:16)
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour (Exo 20:16 )
Have you ever witnessed something against your friend when young? Have you ever lied to prevent something from happened? Have you said falsely about what others haven’t done to clean yourself before faces of people? Have you ever lied to your kids about something? If you have ever done one of these, they make you false witness! A liar! God will held you responsible for what you lied, even once! Whether you cheated exams, or presented wrong medical records, they are all false witness against whom you presented and you are guility before God! In day of judgement, God will condemn you for breaking this law.
- LAW NUMBER TEN – THOU SHALT NOT COVET WHAT ISN’T YOURS
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. (Exodus 20:17)
To covet means to have an earnest desire for something. When you covet something which is not yours, then you commit sin! Have you ever desired to have another body’s House? Have you ever wished that another body’s wife could be yours? Have you ever coveted your neighbour’s servant, ox, ass, car or furnitures? Have you ever desired to own your fellow student’s belonging? Any of these is against God’s law and makes you guilty of breaking this law. God will held you guility on great judgement day!
MYSTERY RESOLVED AND ANSWER GIVEN
Now you have answered above questions and read God’s standard rules for judgement. I’m sure that any human being have at least broken one of commandment. That’s why scriptures plainly states that No one is righteous. We are all sinners. We might have done good works so far. But does good work pays for even one sin we have commited against great God? No. If judge will hold guilty Man who have many orphanages, school for disabled for one theft, How could just God, held us guiltless in that day? We are all guilty and the Bible plainly states this fact: No man is righteous before God!
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one (Rom 3:10 )
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23)
This states clearly that all men are guilty before God. They have all sinned. God owes us to pay for transgressing His Holy law. He doesn’t care where will we get what we are required to pay. What He wants us to do is to pay! As banker won’t care where you got money, they just want you to pay them, so God does! I hope you are now excited to know what God demand as payment for our sin! Money? Good works? Be Humanists? Let’s see what almighty God demands of us
For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23 )
God demands death as payment for our sins! No body can pay it! You might think of this payment as easy one for all Men die. No not that easy. Consider Man’s creation then you will understand meaning of death!
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Gen 2:7 )
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Here clearly indicates tripatite nature of Man: Body, Soul and Spirit. So you better know that Body is mortal while the rest dies not. So if don’t die, where do they go? Book of Revelation gives us clear description of final judgement and eternal life. It gives us insight of eternal destinations and how thing will end
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.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. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. ( Rev 20:11-15)
You see, there is second death! Eternal separation from God, and eternal torment! All Humans will Join the Devil and his angels to enjoy this torment unless debt is paid ! I know you might now be wishing if there will be way to escape! There is! God, out of His unmesuareable love have provided way out to pay for debt for all who want to escape the horrors of lake of fire. He Himself, came in flesh and lived here on earth. He then died on the cross to pay for our great debt. He provided that payment for all who need it. God, in person of Jesus, calls people to receive that gift. Do you want to escape the coming horror? This is the only way. Listen what God said while here on earth in flesh:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. – John 14:6
Jesus died on the cross, shedding his blood as ultimate sacrifice to pay for all sins of the world. Your religion might have taught you otherwise, but I tell you the true way today. God have provided the way and you choose between God and your religion. God have paid the great debt that we could not have paid otherwise. It is gift of God. Religions haven’t died to pay God that debt. They might convince you. But Jesus only died for you. If you accept Him, As Lord and Saviour, then your debt is paid! All you are supposed to do is accepting Him and what He have done for you; His life, atoning death, and victorious resurrection, then you are saved from wrath of God to children of disobedience. Consider the words of this Creator God:
John 3:16-18 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. 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.
Make yourself sound decision today. Either receive Jesus and get all your sins paid, or reject Him today and pay the cost by yourself! Remember, The Bible tells us that it is appointed once for man to die and after death, judgement (Hebrews 9:27). You might be asking yourself “How can I receive Jesus?” It is very Easy. You don’t need to have anything for payment. He have done this free because we were unable to pay Him. He was the seed that God Himself prophesied in Genesis. He came to accomplish what satan conspired to destroy, God’s plan on Man and Earth. He came to reconcilliate us back to Himself. That thing cannot be accomplished out of Jesus! Consider what The Bible tells us:
…and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved …. (Act 16:30-31)
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost(Act 2:37-38)
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.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Rom 10:9-10 )
If you need this payment of the cross, Jesus Christ made, to apply to your sins; Say this prayer to invite Him in your life. Remember, this prayer will not cause big bang and then suddenly you are saved! It is prayer for accepting Jesus, and hence forgiveness of your sins. Jesus will forgive you, and will redeem you from the curse of law and He will grant you assurance of present life and eternal life. You will enjoy Original intent of God, to be in fellowship with Him. After you have made this prayer to God (do it aloud) Then write to us an Email, so that we will help you to grow up in love of God.

I accept your work you did at calvary and I ask you to cleanse my sins with your precious blood. I believe and confess you as Son of God. I believe you died and rose again in third day.
