Do you wonder what would happen to you after you take your last moment and breath before departure from this world? Have you wondered where you would wake up in the afterlife? I would like to share you the most simple message you may ever hear in your life. That message is the message of Jesus Christ’s complete work at the cross. You may be wondering how would Jesus Christ have to do anything with your life.
Jesus Christ is God incarnated as a human, who lived a perfect and sinless life in the eyes of His Father. Jesus Christ is God and the Word of God who walked amongst His disciples 2,000 years ago. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who pre-eternally existed alongside the Father before the creation of the world. He knows you and loves you very much and knew you before you were born.
The perfect sacrifice that Jesus Christ has done for you was; He died and shed His Precious Blood, was buried and rose on the third day! You may be wondering how could Jesus take your past to future sins away from you. Well, Jesus’ perfect blood was an atonement for all of your sins; even the sins that you are about to commit or not have heard of. Jesus’ blood purged, meaning to be completely removed, all of your past to future sins. in this case, all of your sins were purged and you were purchased at an infinite cost by Jesus’ blood! Isn’t that awesome! 🙂
You may be wondering how can I get into Heaven after you die. To understand that Jesus is the only way. Let’s take a look at what Jesus said in Scriptures:
John 14:6 (KJV) – I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The scripture above speaks that Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father. He is a Person and not a process. Through Jesus Christ, you will have eternal life. He imputes His righteousness on your account at the moment of belief (Faith) in Him. In Scriptures, Paul spoke to his brethren that Jesus became human, who knew no sin but sacrificed Himself so He can impute His righteousness on your account so you are perfect in God’s eyes.
2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV) – For he [Father] hath made him [Jesus Christ] to be sin for us [sinners], who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Now, it is by Faith we are saved and not of ourselves so no one may boast, which causes pride (Lucifer fell due to pride). Through the vehicle of faith in Jesus Christ is all you need to be eternally saved forever. Let’s look at the Scriptures:
John 6:40 (KJV) – And this is the will of him [Father] that sent me [Jesus Christ], that every one which seeth the Son [Jesus Christ], and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Jesus Christ simply wants you to need Him. He loves you very much and wanted to let you know that you are loved by Him. He wants you to be with Him in Heaven with Him. So, He provided a way. Let’s look at Scriptures:
John 3:16-18 (KJV) – 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. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him [Jesus Christ] might be saved [eternal life].
Once you have repented (greek = metanoia – change of mind) from your dead works to the complete works of Christ Jesus through faith, you are saved at that moment of belief. Thanks to the Holy Spirit. 🙂 You may be wondering if you backslide in the future, would you lose salvation? The simple answer is no, Jesus keeps you saved and plus once you are born from the Spirit of God, you cannot go back just like physical birth. You also cannot unseal yourself because God would never unseal you once He marks you by the Holy Spirit for redemption.
