Where Are You Heading? Heaven or Hell?

Where you spend eternity is your choice. Let me take you through the Bible "God's Holy Word" and show you how you can have eternal security.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Why must we die? because of our sins.

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

You may ask what is sin? how do I know that I'm a sinner? Well have you ever broken any of God's laws " The Ten Commandments"?

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me” ( Exodus 20:3).
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image” (
Exodus 20:4).
“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain” (
Exodus 20:7).
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy” (
Exodus 20:8).
“Honour thy father and thy mother” (
Exodus 20:12).
“Thou shalt not kill” (
Exodus 20:13).
“Thou shalt not commit adultery” (
Exodus 20:14).
“Thou shalt not steal” (
Exodus 20:15).
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (
Exodus 20:16).
“Thou shalt not covet” (
Exodus 20

If you have broken even one of these you are a sinner bound for Hell in need of a Savior...that includes everyone.

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

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieveing, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolater, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

See, if you have ever even lied, you will spend eternity in Hell...But there is Hope!

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

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.

That one man was Adam in the book of Genesis. When Adam and Eve dissobeyed God they brought sin into the world. But Christ came and died to take on the sins of the world so that we could spend eternity with Him.

Romans 10:9-10 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.

10-For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!

Praise The Lord ( : that is something to get excited about!

John 3:15-16 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16- For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotton son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 2:8-9 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.

We see by these verses that no one is worthy to go to heaven by his own works. The Bible also tells us in Isaiah 64:6

"but we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags...

So you see we are all lost apart from Christ.

If you have never trusted Christ to be your personal Lord and Savior I urge you to do so. We are never promised tomorrow, life is so short, where are you going to spend eternity?

I want to give you a few verses that show that you can't loose your salvation as some people would have you believe.

1st John 5:14 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.

See you can know that ye have eternal life with God.

John 10:27-29 My sheep hear my voice , and I know them, and they follow me;

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

29- My Father,which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

Once you have accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you are a child of God forever. No one can take that away from you no matter how strong!

Does this mean we go on living the same life as we did before Christ? No! Once Christ comes into your life there should be a total transformation in you that everyone sees.

Romans 6:1-7
1. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2. God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3. Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5.For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6. Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7. For he that is dead is freed from sin.

One of my favorite verses is 2nd Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Notice how it says ALL THINGS! not just a few but all.

Christ Loves you, after all He died for you. Won't you accept Him into you heart and life today? All you have to do is accept His gift, the gift of life. Do you believe that you're a sinner, repent and turn from your sins, believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. Do you believe that He died and rose again on the third day, ascended into Heaven and that He is coming again to judge this wicked and adulteress nation. If your sick of a life without Christ and want Him to be a part of your life, don't put it off another day, Hell is a real place. Get alone with God, pray/ cry-out to Him, ask His forgiveness for the life you have lived.
