Are You Saved?
(Ver 1.3) Many people think that there are numerous different ways to go to heaven. A lot of these methods to achieve favor with God involves our works. If we can just change ourselves to get good enough, we will make it. Several religions have a balance scale approach to heaven. If the good deeds outweigh the bad or evil deeds, then we are told we can make it into heaven or paradise when we die. Religion has always been man’s attempt to please a God that they do not know. So men have made up independent rules and requirements that make them good in their own eyes and they think they will make it to heaven or paradise based upon their criteria or definition of good and God. God is so much smarter than we give him credit to be. God knew that we in our own self would never be able to satisfy His definition of being righteousness, therefore He only requires us to do three thing in order to be saved. So we might have just noticed that we have to do something to be saved and that sounds like our works again. But these three steps for salvation are really totally different and opposite to external human works alone.
If we are already a member of a church and have put our name on their membership role and think that saves us, we will be gravely disappointed. If we have been baptized as a baby or as an adult and we think that saves us, we will be gravely disappointed also. If we think that because our mother or father was a really good Christian and that saves us, we will be very disappointed some day. If we think just going to church or temple somewhere saves us, that will be our demise someday. If we think that God will do something someday to save us, then we simply do not know what God has already done by His eternal Grace to get us saved. There are just too many wrong ways to get saved to mention them all on this page.
So now let’s discuss the only right way according to God’s Written Holy Word. Earlier I said that God said, we have to do 3 things to get saved and here they are:
Rom 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.
This Bible verse has 3 things listed that you need to do in order to be saved. This is God’s plan of salvation and not man’s idea of going to heaven. The first thing you do is one that is implied, you must hear about Jesus and who He is and what He has done. That’s not too hard is it? You see Jesus was God becoming a man and walking among us to pay the payment for our sins with His own blood. You did not have to do anything but learn so far. Now Jesus dying for your sins is not that extraordinary, because every man dies, so the death of Jesus was only the beginning of the story. If you noticed in this verse in Romans 10:9 it says you have to believe that God raised Him from the dead and that is the key to your salvation. Believing in a God and something that only He could do and nobody can do or say anything to you to prove it to you, is called faith. God does not appear to you and prove His existence or Jesus doesn’t appear to you to prove His existence, you only have the words of those who have already done this before you and you have to believe! Wow, you do not know how hard that is for many people and because they stumble at something so easy, many of them go to hell. God then tells you the third thing that you must do, and this involves you speaking some words. You must confess Jesus Christ to be your Lord. After you hear about Jesus and what He has done for you and you choose to believe it, and you decide to confess Him as your Lord, you are now saved and on your way to heaven. Pretty simple isn’t it?
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Hear, believe and confess, the three simple steps to heaven and the Kingdom of God. These are the three basic steps to obtaining God’s righteousness and many have already done this before you and are in heaven now to prove it. If you choose to do this now, you will also be guaranteed entrance into heaven. The Spirit of God will come inside of your spirit and dwell there after you confess Jesus as Lord. The Spirit of God will bear witness with your spirit that you are now a child of the Most High. You might feel different or you might not, but do not go by feelings either way. This is God’s spiritual Law of Salvation and you are invited by Him to participate. He has already come and shed His blood on the cross. He has already been raised from the dead and gone back to heaven to make new mansions for you and I.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Accept the free gift of God today before it is too late. Now is the appointed time for you to receive what God has freely given to you. God will bless you when you do this and you will never regret it as long as you live.
Say this Prayer:
Lord I believe in Jesus and that He died for my sins on the cross and was raised from the dead as it was written in your Holy Word. I confess Jesus to be my Lord right now and thank you that I am saved by Your Grace! Amen!
If you prayed this prayer and meant it believing completely in the risen LORD Jesus to confess Him as LORD you are saved! Write a comment and tell us about it. God Bless!
