Welcome Aboard to SAILOR MIKE'S
Thankfully the Great Saviour JESUS saved me. I am a sinner saved by HIS grace.
Today's POD tells about The Saviour JESUS with who you and I have to do. The Scripture says:
For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the LORD; and whether we die, we die unto the LORD: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the LORD's. (Romans 14:7,8)
There is no way around it. We are created beings that need GOD. You are the LORD's creation but you have a choice to receive HIM or reject HIM. There is no other but HIM. You cannot escape this fact. You live on this earth and die physically and then you go to Heaven with JESUS or to Hell to suffer eternally. JESUS said HE was the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the FATHER in Heaven but through HIM. So you need to know who HE is if you do not know HIM as your Saviour. You want eternal life in Heaven not Hell.
You need to know about Jesus, the great Son of GOD who created the heaven and the earth and forgives sins and is the way to Heaven.
We read from the Old Testament Book of Genesis chapter 1 verse 1: In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth.)
HE was there and created man and woman. ( Read Genesis 1:27)
Now we will go to the Gospel of John in the New Testament and read John chapter 1 verses 1-3. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. The same was in the beginning with GOD. All things were made by HIM; and without HIM was not anything made that was made.
You are not going anywhere after you die except where the LORD has said. There is a Heaven for the saved in HIM or a Hell if you do not receive HIM. You cannot escape this. In Romans 14 verse 11 the Holy Scripture says: For it is written, As I liveth saith the LORD, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue confess to GOD.
We read in the Book of Philippians chapter 2 verse 10,11: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of GOD the Father.
Maybe you don't understand it all, but there is a creator of the Universe in which we live. You have learned some about HIM today. Someday you will stand and bow before HIM. For those who are saved in Jesus Christ they will be with Him in Heaven for eternity in Peace, Joy and happiness. For those who do not receive HIM as Saviour they will be cast into a lake of fire. The Book of Revelation tells of this judgement in chapter 20 verse 11-15
Remember John 3:16 says that whosoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life. HIS love is there for you. He cares about you! We are sinners, wrong doers before GOD. We need Jesus Christ to save us. Salvation is free you cannot earn it by your own works. Read Ephesians 2:8,9 Have Faith and believe in Jesus Christ. Take hold of HIS Life Preserver and get saved! Come unto ME JESUS says in Matthew chapter 11:28.
