FAQ'S About SALVATION


I know I can get to Heaven by doing good deeds right ?

NO !, Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of GOD: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
Salvation is a gift from GOD to you. By GOD'S grace and your faith in JESUS CHRIST ( asking JESUS to forgive your sins and then believing that he has forgiven them ) you will receive salvation.


But surely righteous people like priests, clergymen, bishops, popes, and all other religious leaders will go to Heaven because they are so righteous, right ?

NO !, Romans 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."
There is no one alive today, or that once lived that is or was righteous enough to meet GOD'S standard of being righteous.


But I am a good person, I hardly ever swear or do anything wrong. I only have little white sins that I am sure GOD will overlook. He will not hold these against me will he ?

YES !, He will hold them against you. Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life through JESUS CHRIST our LORD."
ALL sin, whether it is white, black, big, or small is still sin to GOD. This prevents us from being with GOD. Only JESUS CHRIST can wash away our sins with his blood that he shed for you and me on the cross !


Alright I am a sinner, but does GOD still love me ?

YES !, Romans 5:8 "But GOD commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, CHRIST died for us." John 3:16 "For GOD so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
YES ! GOD still loves you and me. He loves us so much that he sent his only Son to die in our place so that we may one day be with him in Heaven


So what must I do to be saved and go to heaven ?

Romans 10:9-10 "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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
All that we need to do, in order to be saved, is to confess our sins to GOD, and believe in JESUS CHRIST, and put our faith in him to save us from our sins. !!

If you want to accept JESUS CHRIST as your savior just pray this simple prayer. Dear GOD I am a sinner, I am very sorry for my sin, and I confess my sin and repent to you, Please forgive me of my sins for JESUS sake. Amen
If you prayed the above prayer, congratulations.


JESUS said in
Luke 15:10, "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of GOD over one sinner that repenteth."


Now to grow as a Christian you need to.....

Pray every day, which is just talking to GOD,
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 "Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

Reading the Bible, which is one way GOD talks to you,
Acts 17:11. "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

Obey GOD moment by moment,
John 14:21. "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."

Witness to others about JESUS by your life and words
Matthew 4:19, "And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." John 15:8. "Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples."

Trust GOD for every detail of your life
1 Peter 5:7. "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

Find and go to a Bible believing Church.
Hebrews 10:25 "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."

You should be baptized.
Romans 6:4 "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was
raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"









YOU CAN BELIEVE BIBLE PROPHECY !!

The Word of God has proven that it can be trusted. It has never made false promises. It has never given us reason to think it is a collection of fables and lies. One clear confirmation of it's reliability is the accuracy of its Prophecy.
Some of the most dramatic examples of fulfilled Bible Prophecy are those concerning Jesus Christ. Isaiah 52:13 through 53:12 and Psalm 22, for instance, record specific details about death by crucifixion Hundreds of Years before this terrible form of execution was ever practiced.
Note these specific prophecies about Jesus Christ that were literally Fulfilled:

Old Testament
Prophecy
Prophecy
Fulfilled
Isaiah 7:14 Jesus Born Of A Virgin Luke 1:26 - 35
Micah 5:2 Jesus's Birth In Bethlehem Matthew 2:1
Isaiah 7:14 Jesus Called Immanuel Matthew 1:23
Isaiah 9:1 - 2 Jesus's Ministry In Galilee Matthew 4:12 - 16
Zechariah 9:9 Jesus's Triumphal Entry Matthew 21:1 - 11
Psalm 41:9 Jesus Betrayed By A Friend Matthew 26:20 - 25
Psalm 35:11 Jesus Is Falsely Accused Matthew 26:59 - 68
Isaiah 53:7 Jesus Is Silent Before His Accusers Matthew 27:12 - 14
Psalm 22:16 Jesus's Hands & Feet Pierced John 20:25
Isaiah 53:12 Jesus Is Crucified With Robbers Matthew 27:38
Psalm 22:18 Lots Cast For Jesus's Cloths John 19: 23 - 24
Psalm 34:20 Jesus's Bones Are Not Broken John 19:33 - 36
Psalm 22:15 Jesus Thirsted On The Cross John 19:28
Isaiah 53:9 Jesus Buried In Tomb Of Rich Matthew 27:57 - 60

Whenever the Bible speaks Prophetically, it is Accurate. Hundreds of Prophecies have been literally fulfilled. On this basis, we have good reason to Believe everything the Bible has to say. It has already proven itself?






How to Read and Study the Bible

	Set  aside time each day to read from your Bible. Try to make 
it the same time each day. Be realistic. Commit yourself only to 
as much time as you honestly feel that you can stick to on an 
ongoing basis. Before you begin reading ask for God's guidance 
and blessing. Some  people have found that keeping a daily 
notebook is helpful. Use the following steps to get the most 
out of your daily Bible reading:

1.  Select a passage, from a study guide that you can buy at 
	a Christian Book Store, or use the Chronology Of Events In 
	The Bible below.

2.  Examine its context:
	A.  What kind of book is it drawn from? A biographical book 
		such as one of the Gospel accounts of Jesus' life; a long 
		historical book, such as The Second Book of Samuel, which 
		tells of the reign  of King David; a brief letter to a 
		person (The letters of Paul to Timothy) or to a specific 
		church (The Letters of Paul to the Corinthians )?

	B.  What is the overall message of this book?

	C.  What occurs or is discussed in the passages immediately 
		preceeding and following the passage you chose?

3.  Read the passage.

4.  Identify key words or phrases. Are there words or thoughts 
	that are repeated throughtout the passage? Are any causes and 
	effort relationships established? (These  are often signaled by 
	words like if and then, therefore, because, since, and so.) Are 
	any comparisons made or similarities pointed out?  Are any two 
	people, things or concepts contrasted?

5.  Read the passage again and ask yourself what is the intent 
	or purpose of the passage.  Try to find out what the author is 
	saying. Be honest; don't just look for what you want to hear.  
	The Bible has many strong messages that can change lives!
		If a verse speaks to you, focus on that verse and the 
		verses just before and after it. You can finish reading 
		the whole passage another day.

6.  What do you learn about God from this passage?  What do you 
	learn about human nature?  Ask yourself how this message 
	applies to you. Is there anything you need to change in your 
	life in order to be a faithful child of God or more loving to 
	your neighbor? Ask for God's help in making this change.

7.  Re-read the passage one more time. Is there one verse you 
	would like to commit to memory? Why not write it on an index 
	card and carry it with you throughout the day as a study aid?

8.  Thank God for what he has shown you, and ask for his help 
	as you seek to apply this lesson in your life.

9.  Share what you have learned with someone else.

THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE


Below are some very short summaries for each book in the Bible. It will be obvious from how brief the descriptions are that they are not complete. They should, however, serve as a quick and handy guide to the content of the whole Bible.

The word "Bible" comes from the Greek word biblia, which means "books." So the Bible is really a collection or library of many books. These books are divided into two main parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament.

OLD TESTAMENT


The Old Testament tells the history of the people of Israel. This history is based on their faith in the GOD of Israel and on their religious life as the people of GOD. The authors of these books wrote about what GOD had done for them as a people and how they were to worship and obey GOD in return. The following list shows the different groups of books that make up the Old Testament.

VERY IMPORTANT!! To view the summary, just place your mouse over the name of the book, and the summary should pop up in a little window. To start reading that book, just click on the word "GO" below the name of the book.

NEW TESTAMENT



The books of the New Testament were written by the followers of Jesus Christ, and are the inspired words of God. God wanted others to know the Good News about Jesus Christ and the possibility of a "new" life available to them through his death and resurrection. The following list shows the different groups of books that make up the New Testament.

I have put the King James Bible on line. It has links from the Chronology of Events in The Bible below, to the Bible on line. For example if you wanted to read about the curse of Cain, you would first click on Genesis below, then in the chronology you would look for "The curse of Cain (4:10-15)" When you find it, click on the chapter and verse, and you will be taken to Genesis chapter 4 verse 10.
In the New Testament, all text that is red, like this, are words that where spoken by JESUS.
If you find a bad link or other problem, Please let me know what book, chapter, and verse it is in so that I can fix it.
THANK YOU !!
I have added new code to this page so that when you click on one of the books of the Bible you Do Not leave this page, but instead a new window is Opened for you. You can open as many windows as you can fit on your screen, just click on the same book or another book to open another window. If you do not need a window but still want it handy, ( for example, the chronology for a book ) just click on the minimize button to reduce it to a little box at the bottom of your page, to reopen the window, click on the box, and then click on maximize button. This means that you can now compare passages from several books at the same time. You will need to manually resize each window by dragging the border to the desired size. This should make it a lot easier to study the Bible on line now.

About The Background


To me it seems that these jig saw puzzle pieces are very similar
to our lives in that we have a very hard time fitting the pieces
together but, the LORD already knows what the finished picture
looks like, and is more than happy to help us fit them together,
if we will only call on him and ask.
