Because you are here reading this, you already know that God is calling you. I tell you truth, that, you could not be here if he had not. So, read on.
This is your appointed time, a time of decision.
When making decisions, important ones in your life you examine the options. I purpose you do the same with your choice concerning Salvation and Jesus. Let me explain. The choice is yours and yours alone so, consider well your choices. Since I always like to end on a good note; let’s outline the situation and start with rejection.
There are two choices before you, life and death. Yes, it is that simple but yet so complex. To choose life means to choose Jesus and to choose death means to reject Jesus. Jesus truly has the power of life and death within him. This may be a new revelation to you, relax and go with it, God loves you.
As I stated previously, we will start with the negative—Death—or the rejection of Jesus. I am not saying that if you don’t accept Jesus right now that you are going to die, because only God knows the appointed moment for your departure. What I am saying is this; to reject Jesus is not living, not fully living, and eternity is a real thing. Upon the death of your physical body, your essence or energy will go somewhere. This has been proven scientifically. Scientist have actually found that this energy has mass or weight and it leaves the body lighter than when you inhabited it. So, where do “you” go?, is the ultimate question.
Heaven and Hell do exist, they are very real. Forgive me, I will not withhold anything from you but if you continue reading to the end you will not be able to say anymore “I didn’t know.” You are becoming fully responsible. So I give you leave now to go and continue in the lack of knowledge; however I pray that you will read on to the end.
Now, back to the choices. With the rejection of Jesus today, you probably will continue on your way, perhaps with great blessings and think not again to my words of caution. But know this, that the blessings of God fall on the just(ified) and the unjust(ified)…In other words, God Blesses, period. Perhaps, you’re independent and make your own way and thus far have not need of someone to save you and really don’t expect to, ever. It is always the unexpected things that overtake you. Please continue reading, just incase. Just incase you admit to yourselves that you don’t know everything.
Oh, yes. We were discussing rejecting Jesus. Well, it is, I must admit, a difficult topic for me to bring up, however; I feel the Lord is urging me to continue. Hell…there I said it. Hell, a horrible, aweful, dredful place that was never intended for you or any human (living soul). It was intended for spiritual beings that had never been human and do not have a living soul. I will not discuss that any further. But know this; as it is part of the choice…"you" are "you" in hell and you feel and think and remember.
All human suffering; we believe, is ultimately relieved by dying or death, that the person no longer is “suffering”. If that person (any human) has rejected Jesus, quite the contrary will be so. Suffering will be increased, in hell, with no hope of ending. Is this your choice?
Having informed you of the outcome of rejecting Jesus, it is with great pleasure that I can enlighten you on the other choice…accepting Jesus.
When I think on him my heart smiles and sings, no matter where I am or what struggles, hardships or losses I am suffering. He gives comfort in times where it is expected and accepts that you be and act miserable. He is a constant companion in life and living. Companionship, yes, so important. You know that the old saying is “misery loves company”? Until this very moment I; like most people, believed it’s meaning to be: If someone is miserable, they desire to make others miserable. I have a new perception. Perhaps its meaning is more like—when someone is miserable, they crave companionship. Someone to walk with them down a horrible road; if only, a little while. In doing so, their suffering may be relieved, a little. Jesus can and will do that for you! He will be there, for you! Your suffering will be relieved.
Sometimes all you need is someone to talk to. Someone who will listen, and not interrupt. Someone who will keep your secrets or things you are not ready to reveal. Someone who will be with you, but not overshadow you. Someone with whom you can truly be yourself with. And to know that you are loved. Jesus is his name and he deeply, longingly wants to be that and more to you!!
Thank you for staying with me and reading to the end, just a little bit further.
I can not finish without discussing the topic of Heaven, as I mentioned it earlier in my writings. Suffice it to say, Heaven is all the good that you can imagine and so much more. It is yours when you accept Jesus.
In closing I will now instruct you in how to cast your decision to the universe. If you choose death, simply continue on as you were. But, if you choose life, simply say these words (either in thought of heart of vocally):
Jesus come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.
Forgive me for my sins.
Thank you for continuing to the end, that is a good start. Along the Way
