Heaven, God's Will for Your Life! Hell, Satan's Greatest Desire for You.

 

Greetings and Love in Christ!

  God will never force His salvation upon you or anyone.  He can make circumstances that certainly lead us to Him, and He moves mountains for us, undoubtedly!
It is the Holy Spirit of God Who draws you to salvation.  God can do all things, above anything we can imagine.  He works in little and big ways; nothing is too hard for Him, especially when it comes to us!  Working in situations and people's lives, the Lord is omnipotent and unlimited in abilities, strength, resources and creativity. 

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. 

Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)

 

Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." 
Matthew 7:7 (NIV)

Jesus Christ is the Door of Life.  He stands, ready to answer you and to open the door.  He wants none to perish.

"The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance."
2 Peter 3:9 (AMP)

Almighty God

The Lord God is Creator of everything in the world and universe, including us, Whom He loves dearly~ above everything else that He created. 
He is holy. 
All people have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  The payment of sin is death.  That is why only the perfect Lamb of God, His Son Jesus, Who was and is without sin, paid the full and heavy price for each one of us, so that we who ask Jesus into our hearts and lives will be forgiven and live in eternity with God and Jesus~ the One God, the Triune God, Who includes the Holy Spirit. When you tell the Lord God that you believe Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior, then ask for forgiveness of your sins, He will forgive you.  It is as though He has forgotten all sin whatsoever; to Him, the sin is gone as far as the east is to the west. 
Ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life now and forever.  Make that decision...it is a choice, and it affects your destiny from now, forward into eternity.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
John 14:1-7 (NIV)
 
God is bigger than any sin you have committed. 
Read about the apostle Paul:
 
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
Jeremiah 29:11-14 (ESV)


Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

Proverbs 3:5-7 (ESV)
 
 

 Do you know who wants you to go to hell? 


The devil- his name is Satan.

Satan is the greatest Deceiver; he is a master of confusion, evil, and the counterfeit.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11 (NIV)
 
There are various aspects to get yourself to Hell, but the end result is eternal separation from God. It is horrible, beyond my ability to describe. Whatever you have seen in horror movies, those scenes most likely pale to the reality of being in the place called Hell forever and ever, with no reprieve and no way out.  The only beings there will be Satan, his demons, and other people who did not choose Heaven
What is the most horrifying, other than the fact of this place of evil itself, is that the person herself or himself chose Hell by ignoring or refusing
Christ, the Messiah. 
Please, do not let yourself be kept from God forever by stepping over and on Jesus Christ, ignoring the free gift He has given to us.  Please, do not let the way you were brought up, or the way you were not brought up, something someone said or did that devastated you, or even the way the world laughs in God's face all the time- trivializing and joking about our Creator, Giver, Healer, Protector, Provider, and the Lover of our Lives- let none of these factors keep you from the love of the Lord. 

 

Almighty God Wants You to Choose Life!

The One sure Way to go to Heaven for Eternity is to Believe the Truth Who is Jesus Christ! 

Does Jesus want you to be separated from Him forever? 
Absolutely NOT!  
Both the means and the manner whereby this Salvation is accomplished are clearly revealed in the Scriptures many, many times
(over a span of more than 1,500 years, Old Testament and New Testament, genuine prophets of God and other individuals pointing to Christ alone). 

"This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus Who gave Himself a ransom for all to be testified in due time" (1 Timothy 2:3-6). "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
(Acts 4:12) 

~SALVATION PRAYER~


Talk to God in your own words and tell Him from your heart that you want to be in His Kingdom and that you accept His gift of Life Eternal.  You may say this prayer, from your heart, if you like:

Dear Heavenly Father, I know I have sinned, and I want to be saved and live now and forever in true freedom.  When I pass on, I want to be in eternity with You.  I believe that Jesus, the Son of God, died on the cross for my sins; He took my place.  You spared not Your own begotten Son for me.  He arose from the grave and was with the disciples and other people who saw and believed in Him, then He arose from us to be with God, the Father, in Heaven to sit at Your right side to intercede for me.   Jesus also said that He must go in order to send the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to help me.  I give my life to You, and I will follow You.  Thank You, Lord, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
 

I am writing a new post very soon to continue this subject- namely, to discuss the wonderful, exciting things of Heaven for which to look forward!  The goodness and greatness of it is magnificent! 

I ask the Lord to continue to help me in writing on the subject of Heaven as well as other topics of Jesus Christ that come in
"The Healing is Always Christ."
In Christ Alone, may I continue to write helpful and necessary postings.
 
In memory of a special Christian lady and friend, Carol G.

Also, thank you very much to my advisers: my special pastor~ Chris Winn and dear, precious friends at church~ Nancy W. and Jan B.
