Each of us needs to be forgiven of our sin. Without forgiveness, we
will not enter into Heaven, but remain under judgment and the
condemnation that goes with judgment:
18 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.
We are eternal beings. There is far more to our existence than what
we see here in this world. And this world is the way it is because
of man's sin. After we leave this world, sin is left behind, but
whether we enter into Heaven or are condemned to the flames of Hell,
depends on whether or not we asked Jesus Christ to forgive our sin.
Go to church this Sunday. Ask the saints there the questions you
have about whether or not this is real. It's only natural to have
questions, doubts. You've been listening to the enemy's teachings
here in this world your whole life. You have been taught many
false things as though they are true. But if you listen to that
inner voice, the one telling you that Jesus Christ is real, and
that you need to be forgiven for your sin, then you will find what
you need to at the local church.
God has not left you abandoned. He sends men and women like me
into your life to remind you of His call upon your life. Listen
to His call on your inside and He will lead you to all aspects of
your walk of faith. It will come with assuredness, confidence,
and the born again nature which will literally change you down to
your core. It's his "down payment" (the Bible says) on what you
will receive in the future when you leave this world and enter in
You can be forgiven no matter what you've done, and no matter who
you've done it to. It's the exact and only reason Jesus came into
this world to die on that cross ... to save your eternal soul from
Hell. He's ready, willing, and able, to forgive you of your sin,
and to begin your new life in service to His eternal Kingdom.
Say this simple prayer to begin your journey:
Dear God, I don't know if you are real. But I want to know
the truth. If you are real, show me in a way I will know and
understand. Lead me to the full truth, and away from all of
the falseness that exists. Protect me from the enemy who
tries to deceive me, and bring me to the truest place of
For those who will be saved, God has been preparing your life for a
long time for the day you will be saved. When it comes, you will be
