There is groundwork information necessary in order for you to understand the instructions:
Life is eternal. Hell is real. God is God. Heaven is where God is. Jesus is God’s son. He paid your way to Heaven. God has done his utmost for you, no questions asked, but the choice is yours.
You have faith in whatever you believe is the truth. Faith is not natural; it is supernatural. Eternity is supernatural.
We were made for Heaven, and humankind messed up in the beginning with Adam and Eve. For that we die. The flood came because of the contamination of God’s creation. Noah and his family were chosen to begin again after the flood. Later God chose the family of Abraham to carry his name through the earth. They wanted to earn God’s blessings, so he gave them the Ten Commandments. They broke them. God sent his Son from Heaven. He was born a man from Abraham’s family. God named Him Jesus. He lived a perfect life, obeying the commandments, and was beaten and crucified. On the cross, Jesus included all mankind in a divine exchange. He died and went to Hell for our disobedience so that we can go to Heaven with his righteousness. When he completed His mission, God raised him from the dead. He rose to sit at God’s right hand in Heaven, in the flesh, covering us. We have his identity if we’re willing to take it. It is the free gift of God. We didn’t earn it, we can’t buy it and he won’t make you take it against your will. Jesus is the only door to Heaven. You believe it and accept it by faith. If you aren’t under the blood of Jesus, you will be judged according to the Ten Commandments. When God sees the blood, He will receive you as His own. If not, you have to face the consequences forever with no way back.
Five words with your last thoughts is all it takes to rescue you from a fiery Hell. Say (or think, if you are on a respirator), “I’m sorry!” and mean it from your toes up. God knows what you’re sorry for and so does the Devil. Next you say, or think, “Jesus, save me!” from your heart and mean it even if you survive the last minute. Possibly just saying “ Jesus, save me!” or “Jesus!” will be enough if time is short.
Warning! You may be one of the few people who gets a last minute. Sudden death can come on you, and if that happens, you will go out as you have lived. You’ll miss Heaven, and catch Hell. Fear (or comprehension) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Be wise and make your own decisions while you can. God loves you. Life after committing yourself to the Lord is not a terrible loss. Jesus didn’t come to bring death, but life to the full. If you gain Heaven with Jesus after you die, how can you lose while you’re living? Serving an invisible God is not a waste of time and money; it actually fulfills the value of your time and money. Those five words work at any time and the sooner, the better. Putting it off until the last minute is the most dangerous decision you will ever make.
