We are now at the crossroad of our existence here on earth. Soon we have to face judgment to Him who has made everything in the whole universe seen and unseen. Are we prepared for this? The world is now ready and apt for judgment like a fattened calf ready for slaughter. As it is, the world is full of darkness and people wallow in their own lives of pleasure seeking and all forms of self glory. In their unabated quest for more pleasure and self glory in life, many have abandoned God and any idea of accountability for their actions. They are in darkness. Many profess that they believe in God and just stop there as though mere belief can save them. They are like the ostrich who bury its head on the sand and think that any trouble will go away since it can no longer see it. They live in a make believe world of being wishy washy and lukewarm. They are neither here nor there. They too are headed for destruction. To those who say they believe in God no matter what religion you profess, would it not be wonderful to have a clear cut assurance of salvation? The Bible says, "Unless a man is born again of water and the Spirit, he shall not enter the kingdom of God" (John 3:5). We are born again when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior and surrender our lives to Him. This is done in a simple but meaningful prayer of acceptance whereby the Holy Spirit descends upon us and revives our long dead spirit. Then our eyes become open to the truth of God's words and we begin to appreciate a truly righteous life pleasing to God and giving glory to His name. If you are prepared to be born again and be assured of eternal life, please recite with me this simple prayer of acceptance. "Heavenly Father, I humbly confess my sins to you. Sins that I committed since birth until now, including sins I inherited from my parents and grandparents. I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. Let His most precious blood wash clean all my sins. I surrender my life to you. Let the Holy Spirit descend upon me and enliven my dead spirit so that I may know your truths. Strengthen me with power from on high so that I will live a righteous life pleasing before Your eyes. This I declare heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, one God forever. Amen." If you are sincere in doing this with all your heart, then indeed you are saved. ALL WHO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.
