THE WAY TO HEAVEN
Be honest and ask yourself how many of the 10 Commandments
you have ever violated?
1.Thou shalt have no other
gods before me. Has God held first place in your life, above the gods of
pleasure, sports, money, and ambition?
2.Thou shalt not make unto
thee any graven image. Are spiritual matters more important to you than material
3.Thou shalt not take the
name of the Lord thy God in vain. Have you always used the names of Jesus,
Christ, and God in a reverent manner?
4.Remember the Sabbath day,
to keep it holy. Do you set aside time each week to worship God?
5.Honor thy father and thy
mother. Have you always shown proper respect for your parents?
6.Thou shalt not kill. Have
you ever been angry at anyone?
7.Thou shalt not commit
adultery. Have you ever engaged in premarital sex or been unfaithful to your
8.Thou shalt not steal. Have
you ever stolen anything? Have you ever cheated on a test or plagiarized?
9.Thou shalt not bear false
witness against thy neighbor. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever slandered
10.Thou shalt not covet.
Have you ever had a strong desire for the possessions of others? The Ten
Commandments -- Exodus 20:3-17.
Have you ever broken any of
Gods laws? The Bible says we have!
" Romans 3:23 "For all have
sinned and come short of the glory of God." ADULTERY: "Whosoever looketh on a
woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
Matthew 5:28 Have you ever lusted? If so, you are an adulterer in God's eyes
because lust is the moral equivalent to adultery. MURDER: "Whosoever hateth his
brother is a murderer. and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in
him." I John 3:15 Have you ever hated anyone? If so, God considers you a
murderer because your heart attitude is the same as a murderer's. IDOLATRY: ...
Covetousness, which is idolaty." Colossians 3:5 Have you ever been greedy,
covetous, or dissatisfied with your portion in life? If so, God regards you as
an idolater because the objects you have strongly desired have taken God's
rightful place in your life.
What is the greatest question in life? The greatest question is, "Where will you spend eternity?" Has anyone ever explained to you God's simple plan of salvation, as given in the Bible? On whose terms would you want to meet God? -- Your church, or your family, or your own, or the Bible?
Man's ways are not God's ways!! Proverbs 16:25 says, "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Isaiah 55:8 says, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." Our problem is that sin separates us from God. God is holy, pure, righteous and sinless. Ecclesiastes 7:20 says, "For there is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." What are the wages of sin? Romans 6:23 says, "The wages of sin is death." Since all have sinned, then where will all go to get their wages? The answer? Hell! Do you fear hell? Jesus says we should! Matthew 10:28 says, "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." Do you know why Jesus warned us to fear hell? He knew how bad it is, that its consequences are fearful, and that it is eternal! God's word shows a preview of hell! (Luke 16:23-31) The man in hell was in torment! The man in hell prayed, but too late! The man in hell was eternally separated from God by "a great gulf fixed". But all men will not go to hell!
While there is the broad way that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13), there is also the narrow way (Christ, John 14:6) that leads to life eternal (Matthew 7:14). Which way are you going? Extra, Extra!! Good news!! God loves us!! Christ died for us!! John 3:16 says, "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." Read also 1 Peter 2:24 & 2 Corinthians 5:21. Jesus Christ is the only bridge from this world to the world to come. He said in John 14:6, "I am the way." Salvation is not of works. Ephesians 2:8&9 says, "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." Read also, Romans 4:5,6 & Titus 3:5. Salvation is a gift from God to us!! Revelation 22:17 says, "Whosoever will, let him take---." What two actions can we take when offered a gift? We can receive, or refuse. John 1:12 says, "As many as received Him, to them gave He power (authority) to become the sons of God even to them that believe on His name." Christ said in John 10:9, "I am the door." And in John 6:37 He said, "Him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out." Why wait? God said in Genesis 6:3, "My spirit shall not always strive with man."
How much time have you to live? 2 Corinthians 6:2 says, "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." Here is a prayer of acceptance: "Lord Jesus, I am a sinner! I repent of my sins. I deserve to go to Hell! But I believe that Jesus Christ died for me and rose from the dead on the third day, and I now receive Him as my personal Lord and Savior!" in Jesus' name I pray, Amen!
I pray that the Scriptures above will speak to you, and that you will respond, and receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, and be assured to enter the kingdom of God (Heaven)! If you have responded to God in this simple way, then you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Even though you may not be able to feel it there, a deposit of God's own life has been placed in your heart in the form of His Spirit. This deposit, as it is maintained through continuing acts of Faith in God and His Word, is all that is sufficient to comfort and guide you through all coming trials and temptations that you will experience in your new life as a Christian. To help you stay strong in this Faith, you will want to begin participating in the following activities:
1. Attend a Gospel-preaching Christ centered church regularly: "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together." Hebrews 10:25
2. Read God's Word daily: "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15
3. Spend time each day in prayer: "My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up." Psalm 5:3
4. Live each moment for the Lord: "Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Colossians 3:17
5. Tell others the good news! Now that God has entered into your heart, you have a testimony! As God opens doors for you to share your testimony with others, you do not have to feel shy or afraid. If you trust Him, God will lead your thoughts and words. "That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall 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." Romans 10:9,10. Welcome to the family of God!
Did you know that only 2% of Christians tell others about how they can be saved through Jesus Christ? I pray that all Christians who read this will get serious and help Christ in winning souls! Every day 150,000 people die around the world. Many of them end up in hell! Do you want any of your family, friends or any person to suffer in hell for eternity? ***THE GREAT COMMISSION*** is a special calling from Jesus Christ to all His followers to take specific action while on this earth. GO TELL OTHERS HOW THEY CAN BE SAVED THROUGH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST! Mark 16:15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to all creation.
God bless you,

The main purpose of this ministry is to help fulfill the Great Commission of winning souls for Jesus Christ as stated in Gods Word: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15)
I felt that the Lord Jesus Christ, through His Holy Spirit, gave me the desire to win souls through a variety of ministries; through tract distribution, street witnessing and through the Internet.
Our volunteer staff are committed, God-fearing Christians who have the same desires as mentioned above. I want to thank them for their faithfulness and hard work in sharing the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
My desire for those who are lost is to come to the knowledge that by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they can be saved. For those who have ears to hear this message of life, my desire is to communicate that Jesus Christ obediently gave his life as a sacrifice to pay for the sins of the whole world. He volunteered to die a humiliating, painful death by being nailed to and hung from a wooden cross until all life had passed from His body. This He did as a faithful response to the promise of His father (God) that He would be raised up (or raised from the dead) on the third day following His death by crucifixion. In turn, each of us is now offered the hope that through our Faith in this promise, we will someday be raised from the dead (and for those who are alive when He returns, caught away in the air to join them) by the very same power, victorious over death, and be led by Jesus Christ our Lord to live with Him forever in heaven.
In conclusion, what is my factual basis as I say these things? Please read with me the following quoted passage, penned by the Apostle Paul in his first letter to the early Corinthian church. In a modern Bible, we can read these words in First Corinthians, Chapter 15, Verses 49-57. "And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." God bless you!
Sincerely in Christ,
Praise Jesus, many people have made decisions to accept Christ as their
personal Lord and Savior. To God be the glory! In 2001, the Lord put it
on my heart to start this Internet ministry. We also developed a Gospel
tract to hand out to those who are lost and need salvation through Jesus
Christ. Jesus loves you! "For God so loved the world that he gave his
only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal
life." (John 3:16) How to be saved: Romans 10:9,10: "That if you
confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that
God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your
heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth
that you confess and are saved." God bless you!
In March of 1984 I was partying with some friends in the parking lot of
the United Artist's Cinemas in Santa Ana, CA where I worked. At the end
of the evening I was driving home drunk out of my mind, and a friend of
mine named Brett Southard was a passenger in the car. We were driving
down Sunflower Ave in Costa Mesa, CA at 55 MPH, and I lost control of
the car and crashed into a brick wall head on. I lived but my friend
This was a wake up call to me! Jesus Christ opened up my eyes and set
me free! My sins are forgiven and I have eternal life through Jesus
