Lines in the Sand, the Road to Salvation

There are many who will agree with me and many who will not.

Regardless of what people do or don't believe, I have a responsibiility to state the words that I know come from God.

Jesus is returning.
The Church will be leaving.
7 years of the most troublesome times are coming to this planet.
Billions will be dying.

Where will you be spending it?

If you are relying on your good deeds in life, you will be still here to go through those 7 horrible years.
Anything YOU have done isn't enough to save you.
Only what Jesus has done for you can save you.  But YOU have to ask Him for it.
You have to.  He cannot open the door to your heart when the only knob is on your side of it.

Jesus loved you enough to die for you. He took your place.  He paid the price for your sin and mine.  But YOU need to ask for His gift of Salvation. You have to believe in Him as your personal Lord and Savior. You.

It's not going to matter what kind of car or truck you drive.
It's not going to matter what lands you have flown to.
It's not going to matter where your house is.
It's not going to matter what kinds of clothes you own.

None of that is going to matter if you are left behind.

Only after it happens will you then realize you missed the boat. That everything you have valued is now worthless.

Only then will you realize you needed a Savior.

Only then will you see just how evil, evil can be.

I say none of that to scare you, but to get you to see that YOU need to choose.

Soon there will be no more time to choose.

Life isn't just going to go on, Life isn't just going to get better.  In case you haven't seen the news headlines lately, this world is spiraling towards chaos.  Control is the undercurrent word.  How can the government control you.  How can the government get YOU to want them to control you.

They arleady control what you see, what you hear, how you work. They control the information you take in.

But they cannot decide the Spirtual decision facing you.  Lines are being drawn in the sand.  Christians and Israel on one side and those who don't believe on the other side.  Which side are you on?
There is no 'not choosing'.  Not an option.

You need to choose.

Only you can do that. 

Here's how...

The following is from

The Roman Road: Follow this Map
The Roman Road provides a detailed map for our salvation and eternal fellowship with God. Just follow these steps: 

1. We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, accepting our humble position in God's created order and purpose. Romans 1:20-21

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." 

2.We must realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. None of us are worthy under God’s standards. Romans 3:23 

“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” 

3.God gave us the way to be forgiven of our sins. He showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 

“But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 

4.If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we repent of our sins, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will have eternal life. Romans 6:23 

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

5.Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” 

6.There are no other religious formulas or rituals. Just call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved! Romans 10:13 

“For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” 

7. Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today. Romans 11:36

"For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen."
The Roman Road: Are You Ready?
The Roman Road shows you the path – are you ready to accept God’s gift of Salvation now? If so, believe in what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross, repent of your sins, and commit the rest of your life to Him. This is not a ritual, just a prayerful guideline for your sincere step of faith:

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38)

If you decided to receive Jesus today, welcome to God's family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.

Get baptized as commanded by Christ.

Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.

Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.

Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus. Develop a group of believing friends to answer your questions and support you.

Find a local church where you can worship God.
