    [SIZE=medium]PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS. IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU COULD EVER DO AND IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT IF YOU DIED TODAY THAT YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]There are some things that you should know:[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]1. Realize that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior:[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]This all began with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God created them perfect, there was no death or sorrow. God told them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed God and as a result, sin entered into the world. The pain which this world sees is the result of sin.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]2. Because of our sins, we die both spiritually and physically, but God sent His Son to die so that you can have a chance not to have to go to hell by accepting what He did on the cross for you:[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. for us."[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Every person who has ever lived is a sinner and is not righteous because we do bad things. A sin is a crime against God, just as if you steal something at the store, it is punishable by going to jail. It's the same thing with sin. Even if we lie one time, the punishment is hell, which is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. That’s because you must be perfect in order to get to heaven. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already committed a sin which will be punished if you are not pardoned. If you commit a crime, and then live as a good citizen you still will go to jail for the crime you committed. Right? Just as the president can pardon a crime so you won't go to jail, Jesus can pardon your sins so that you do not go to hell, and can go to heaven when you die.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]3. If you will Admit to Jesus Christ that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior, Believe in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead and Accept Him as your Lord and Savior and you will be forgiven and taken to heaven to be with Him when you die.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Joh 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 10:9,10 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.."[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]You cannot get to heaven by being a good person, going to church, baptism or any other way other than by turning to Jesus, believing in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for your sins and placing your trust in Him. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven if they do these things, but the bible says that there is only one way to heaven and that is through receiving what Jesus Christ did on the cross for you.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Will you do that today? If you will, you can be 100% sure that you will go to heaven when you die.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD FOR YOUR SINS? [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]ARE YOU WILLING TO TURN TO JESUS CHRIST FOR SALVATION?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]4. If you are willing to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and believe it with all of your heart, you could pray something like this to God from your heart:[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]"Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that You died on the Cross and Rose from the dead for my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins, save me, take me to be with You when I die. I now receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus holy name, Amen." [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism. [/SIZE]

    7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
    8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
    9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. - John 10

    Why do you believe people go to Heaven when they die?

    [SIZE=medium]There are some religions out there who teach that there is no such thing as Hell. Some teach that hell is the only the grave. Some teach that hell is a place where souls are burned up in an instant. But that is not what the bible teaches. Today, I am going to demonstrate though the word of God that hell is a literal place of torment.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Where is hell?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Hell is down. Most bible scholars believe that it is in the center of the earth.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Mt 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Jesus's body remained on the earth, but His Spirit went to the heart of the earth, or center. Where is the heart of something located? In the center.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]What is Hell?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]1Pe 3:18 ¶ For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Hell is a prison. It is a prison for those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Hell is no laughing matter. There is no party in hell.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. {strange: Gr. other} [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Lu 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]First of all notice that this man was not happy. It says that he was tormented in this FLAME. Hell is fire. It is an eternal flame that never goes out. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Mr 9:3 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: {offend...: or, cause thee to offend} Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: {offend...: or, cause thee to offend} Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: {offend...: or, cause thee to offend} Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]It says where their worm dieth not and the FIRE is NOT quenched. Hell is eternal torment by fire.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Hell is outer darkness. There is no light there. It is pitch black, forever.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Mt 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Mt 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Lu 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Who goes to hell, and what is after hell?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Re 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]One day after everyone has been judged, hell and death will be cast into the lake of fire. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Re 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]The devil is going to be cast into the lake of fire. Notice that it is a place of torment and that torment never ends.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Re 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Those who reject Jesus Christ and accept the mark of the beast are going to the lake of fire.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Re 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium](KJV)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Those who reject Jesus Christ won't be found written in the book of life. They also will be cast into the lake of fire. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]There is only one way out. That way is Jesus Christ.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Who is God willing to save from hell and the lake of fire?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]How do we do this?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 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.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Ro 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]The bible says that whosoever believeth on Him shall NOT be ashamed. Are you willing to accept Jesus Christ today to be your Savior? Don't be ashamed. Raise your hand right now if you want Jesus Christ to save you and someone will show you from the bible, God's word how you can know without a doubt that you will go to heaven when you die and that you won't have to go to this place called hell.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]12 ¶ For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]God is willing to save ANYONE no matter what you have done, if you will simply call upon upon Jesus Christ to save you. Will you do that today?[/SIZE]

    When we die we don't go straight to heaven. We only experience Heaven at the first resurrection, and then Heaven is brought down to the New Earth after the 1,000 Year Reign.

    I don't see how you've proven your point. It seems to me that you've pulled passages of Scripture from the contexts in which they were written.

    [SIZE=10pt]Story of Angel and Cousin Sarah[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=8.5pt]Several years ago, My cousin was playing with a lighter in his bedroom. He caught a newspaper or comic book or something on fire and threw it on his bed. There were several people sleeping there. The whole house went up in flames. Everyone got out except for my 3 year old cousin sarah. They had written her off as dead. The whole house was in flames and filled with smoke. An off duty fireman happened to be driving by and saw the smoke. He stopped to help. He looked into the bedroom window and saw her sitting under the window with her hands on her head. He pulled her out and she was burned and has some scars to this day. He asked her how she knew to come over to that window and sit on the ground. She said that the man in the fire told her "Don't be afraid, to go over to the window sit down and put your hands over your head and face". Years later, she recounted her story with me. She said that the man had no face, light shining from it, he was 3 feet tall and dressed in white. He was floating in the corner of the room. My Grandparents were deeply committed Christians. Often times my Grandmother would be up all night, having trouble sleeping, praying for the safety of the family. At the same exact time that the fire was going on, my grandmother was several miles away sleeping in her bed. She heard a voice that told her "There's been a fire, Liz and the kids got out ok". A few minutes later, my Grandfather got the call on the phone "There's been a fire, liz and the kids got out ok" He tried to tell her what they said, but she already knew. The reason that God Spoke to her, I believe, is because it was HER prayer that the Lord was answering. Otherwise, my cousin would have died in the fire.[/SIZE]

    I'm in heaven now :)

    Eph_1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
    Eph_1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
    Eph_2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    (Mat 3:2) And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    (Mat 4:17) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    (Mat 10:7) And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    (Mat 13:11) He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

    And because of this, I shall never die;

    (Joh 3:15) That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
    (Joh 6:47) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
    (Joh 11:26) And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

    Believest thou this?

    Remember that the Gospel of Grace is what we are currently under. Paul's writings. He is the Apostle of the Gentiles.

    Everyone dies. No one has a pass that excuses them from dying. The only exception are those who are alive and saved when Jesus returns.

    Mat 7:13 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:
    Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.


    In other words, if you're following a crowd, you're going the wrong way... :p

    Depends what you mean. All human beings are sinners and those who are saved go to Heaven. They will no longer sin but they were sinners prior to going to heaven. Unsaved sinners don't go to heaven.
