We all say,
"tell it to me straight - don't lie
to me." Well, you better sit down, because you are about to face the
God's honest truth about yourself, your future, and all the lies you may
You are in
trouble. You may not think so, but you have broken God's Laws, and ignored
them, and rejected them so often, that if there was a counter in the shape of
a dial ticking off every time you lied, or coveted something, it would spin
like a fan! You don't have to be on drugs to be in trouble with God. You don't
even have to be a murderer. From the first lie, and the first time you stole
something, you sinned. Every time you were full of pride, you sinned. And you
have been sinning ever since. The truth is, you are a sinner, and sinners
don't go to heaven.
Don't believe me
- take a look at this: "Know
ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not
deceived: neither fornicators,
nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate, nor abusers
of themselves with mankind, nor thieves,
nor covetous, nor drunkards,
nor revilers, nor extortioners,
shall inherit the kingdom of God"
(1Corinthians 6:9,10). "There
is none that doeth good, no not one"
(Romans 3:12). "Whosoever
shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all"
(James 2:10). Even if you only tell a lie, it's just as if you broke all God's
commandments! It's that bad. And it's that serious.
Or how about:
idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,
emulations, wrath, strife, seditions,
heresies, envyings, murders,
drunkenness, revellings, and
such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time
past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God"
(Galatians 5:19-21). Have you ever done ANY of those things? If you are
truthful, you know you sin, and will sin some more, and in the end, you will
die. But believe me, it won't end there.
You are most
probably headed for hell. I know, hell is supposed to be outdated, and
politically incorrect to even mention, but all the people in the world who
decide hell is no longer real cannot change its temperature by one degree.
There is no other place to go if you sin. Wake-up and realise hell
is real, and is going to be forever.
Jesus said hell is, "everlasting fire, prepared for the devil
and his angels"
(Matthew 25:41). Moses quotes God saying, "a
fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell"
(Deuteronomy 32:22). The apostles Paul, Peter, James and even king David all
say hell is a horrible place that the wicked go to and burn and suffer in
forever. "The smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever
(Revelation 14:11). Please understand, that "God is not willing that any should perish"
If the truth is
too much for you at this point, and you want to put this leaflet down, then go
ahead - it's your destiny. Just remember, someone had the courage to
tell you the truth, and warn you about such a place - because they cared!
view of God, and self, and sin is so twisted that people have become numb to
the nagging sense of guilt, and shame that used to haunt us all when we sinned
against Almighty God. Churches promote people's goodness, and God's
"love" so much that they ignore the fact that human nature hasn't
changed in 6,000 years. We have NOT changed. "There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes, and yet are
not washed from their own filthiness"
(Proverbs 30:12). That's this generation. The X-generation. The NOW-generation. Possibly, the
LAST-generation. The question is: are YOU ready to meet God? Remember, people
will bury you, just like they did your ancestors.
Don't think your
religious efforts are going to make any difference. You were probably deceived
into thinking Mary could help you, or the saints, or the Church, all your
prayers, and sincerity. But, one of these days, you will wake-up in hell and
discover you were lied to. God
deeds) are as filthy rags"
(Isaiah 64:6). Dirty, stinking, filthy rags that no one would want to even
touch - that's us, at our "best."
But don't stop
here - the best is yet to come!
the Bottom Line
As a sinner, you
will face the wrath of your Creator unless someone perfect, and sinless takes
your place. The only person who could take your place was Jesus,
the Son of God! You know Him - His is
the name you always shout when things go wrong. He is the One you roll your eyes
at because He always looked so wimpy in all the pictures at church. Well, you've
been misled again. That
"jesus" is not the
Jesus of the Bible. The Jesus of the Bible never fell when He carried the cross.
He didn't have blond hair, or blue eyes. He
was a Jew. And he never meant for you to go through life not knowing where
you will spend eternity! Think about it - your sins held Jesus to that cross.
You couldn't begin to name them all. And if you wanted to try and pay for them
all, it would take an eternity. I don't think you have that kind of time, so
here's what to do. And if you are wise, you will do it soon. You don't have the
promise of a tomorrow.
1. Repent. That means hate
your sins - all of them, and agree with God that you deserve hell. Hate also
your own goodness. You just are not good enough for God's heaven if you are
honest about it.
2. Accept the free gift of salvation
- eternal life comes only from Jesus Himself. "The
gift of God is eternal life, through
Jesus Christ our Lord"
(Romans 6:23). Talk to Him in prayer right now, and accept the forgiveness that
He offers you for ALL your sins. Not just one or two. He makes only full
payments. "The blood of Jesus Christ God's Son
cleanseth us from all sin"
(1 John 1:7). Jesus, not some
dead religion, is your ticket home!
3. Get free.
To believe THE TRUTH, is to finally be free. Totally free from the bondage of
sin, the fear of hell, and all the lies and deception you may be trapped in.
Jesus said, "Know the truth, and
the truth shall make you free"
Why not cry out
to God from your heart right now, and ask Him to have mercy on you, and save
your soul. "For whosoever
shall call upon the name of the Lord shall
be saved" (Romans
10:13). It is that simple! Don't be so proud you would miss this opportunity.
Only you can settle your destiny, by
simple child-like faith in Jesus, the living Lamb of God - He is your only
Saviour from the coming wrath of God. Do it now! You could be heaven-bound
for sure, all because you finally accept the truth that Jesus came to save you.
So, ask Him to save you - Right now!
