Finding Life in Jesus
Many things are going on in this world today that some may not understand. We are hoping that the words of these blog posts will help reveal to you the urgency of the times we are living in. If you do not know Jesus Christ, these times may seem very scary to you. But when you learn about Him and the life He lived, and get to know Him as your Lord and Savior, the times will not seem so terrifying. Our hope is that you come to Christ before the times get too difficult.
We are living in the very end of days. These times have been foretold for thousands of years in the Bible. If you are unsaved, backslidden, or have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, this blog will help you on your journey in getting to know Him and the sacrifice He made for you. We do not want to spend a lot of time writing about the life and times of Jesus here until we have all the pertinent information given on what these times are going to be ahead of you. But we do not want to forsake the knowledge of Him either. So, in order to get as much information in as we can, we will give you the basics and fill in the rest as we get further into scripture and learning what is ahead for the world.
The very first scripture that I would have you learn is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life.” God loves you so much that He let His son die on the cross so that you could be saved and go to Heaven. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for you and me. He lay down His life so that we could live eternally with Him. I do not know of anyone who is willing to die the way He did for me. Jesus suffered a horrendous death so that I and you could live with Him eternally.
If you do not know or are just learning about Him, I suggest watching Jesus of Nazareth or The Passion of the Christ. Either one of these movies will give you the full story of what happened to Jesus before and during the crucifixion. I also suggest reading the first four Gospels of the New Testament, Genesis – Numbers in the Old Testament, to get a broad understanding and layout of the bible. I would then suggest reading and studying Revelations.
Revelations is the last book of the bible and explains what is going to happen in the end times, or last days. These last days are upon us and there is no more time to get ready. But, there is hope in Him. He does not want any of His children to suffer and has given us fair warning of the days ahead. This is the time to get right with Him.
Going to church will help you become closer to Him and help build relationships with others who believe in Him. To get into Heaven, there are things you must do and I will lay them out here.
First you much accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and believe that He died on the cross to save you from your sin. Next you need to ask for forgiveness for the sins you are guilty of, ask Jesus to come live in your heart, and repent of your sins, by turning away from the sinful life you have been living up until now. This is just the beginning of a new and glorious life through Him. The next steps are to read and study the word of God, pray for others, and learn to share His word with others so that they might too be saved. The next post I put up is going to delve deeper into the word of God and give a timeline of things that have already happened and things that are going to happen in this world. We will be praying for you and hoping that God has found a place in your heart.
May God richly bless you and your life,
Dave & Tam
