The most important decision you'll make in your entire life

Is it schooling? Who you'll marry? A money decision?

No, none of these.

The most important decision is "the choice you make on where you'll spend eternity. "

Option #1 Heaven: With God (In perfect peace forever, having exciting and meaningful things to do.)
Option #2 Hell: Without God (in never ending torment and judgement for sins. There is no escaping, no parole, no time off for good behavior. It's eternal, without end.)

THE GOOD NEWS:
God wants you to choose Option #1, to be saved from Option #2
God has made it easy and free to do so but unfortionately, so many don't want God in their life.
God isn't going to force you to love Him or to be with Him when you don't want to be.
So it's your choice. If you don't choose then you've chosen Option #2 already and will pay for your sins in Hell for eternity.

In order to be accepted by God and escape the path to Hell, we have to get clean of sin. Why? you may ask. Because the sin we have, separates us from the perfect and Holy God, making us filthy to Him, so much so that He couldn't look on it for eternity. Honestly, do you like to be around people that stink, are dirty and refuse to be clean? Well it's more than that to God, He can't have you in heaven, and there is only one way to go to Heaven and that's through God the Son, Jesus Christ.

The good news is, God has made a way, and it happens to be an easy way, to clean us up, to make us acceptable to live with the Holy God throughout eternity. It's a way that anyone can accomplish.

God sent His Son Jesus, to earth to die a horrendous death as a sacrafice, as payment for our sins and make that way for us to be washed from sin in God's eyes. By shedding His blood, dying in our place, as a sacrafice to pay for the sin that we've committed Jesus made the offering for sin needed for us to be saved from eternal judgement in Hell, Option #2. That is, only if we accept it.


How to be cleaned up from sin and be acceptable to God:
You have to make the decision and ask God for it. (See Bible verses below).
I want to ask you to accept Jesus into your life right now, without any delay, where you sit. Ask Him into your life, accept what Jesus did by shedding His blood as payment for your sins
You do this in a simple prayer, which you can pray right now to God.
Make the prayer yourself and mean it. Or pray the following:

"God in Heaven, I accept your payment for my sins, I ask Jesus into my life, cleanse me, wash me of my sins and accept me into heaven I pray. I accept that Jesus is Lord. He is God the Son. He shed His blood for my sins on the cross as a sacrifice acceptable to God so that I can be forgiven. Jesus rose again from the grave three days later. Jesus' tomb is empty. I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. Now my name is being written in the Book of Life in Heaven and the Angels are rejoicing.
In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen."

Here is what the Bible says:

John 3:16
Revelation 3:20a
John 1:12
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." "But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,"

"If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. We believe with our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we declare with our mouths that we believe, and so we are saved. ....as the Scripture says, 'Anyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.'"

Romans: Chapter 10 verse 9-10, 13 (NCV)

Romans: Chapter 10 verse 9-10, 13 (NCV)


Jesus rose from the grave 3 days after being crucified. What's more, the tomb was guarded by many Roman solders on request by those wanting Jesus killed.
"Pilate said to them, 'Take a guard; go, make it as secure as you know how'" "They went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone"
Matthew 27:64-66

Because the Jewish leaders warned Pilate that Jesus claimed he would rise from the dead after 3 days, Pilate became directly involved in making sure the tomb was secure and nobody could steal Jesus' body to prevent further problems in his jurisdiction. The Jewish leaders also would have gone overboard in making the tomb absolutely secure. There would have been more than enough solders on guard to handle the 11 remaining disciples and thousands of followers of Jesus that they feared would take the body by force if necessary. Likely a absolute minimum of 16 soldiers, but perhaps over 100, were ordered to stand in a maximum security guard at the tomb. These soldiers were not allowed to fall asleep by Roman law while on guard. They would have been executed had they fallen asleep. Regardless, even if they had all fallen asleep, they would have woken up if someone had tried to move a 2 ton rock out of the way. Plus anyone breaking the seal on Jesus' tomb would be crucified under Roman Law.
Jesus rose from the dead, just as He said He would.

Jesus, God the Son, paid for our sins and his tomb is empty. Accept Him into your heart and have your sins forgiven today!
