Please spare 5 minutes of your time and read the following
information inspired from God's Word.
5 minutes is nothing compared to the vastness of eternity, but if you can take in and believe what this short message states, you can be sure of spending that eternity in Heaven, and avoid the eternal judgement of those who would reject the gift of God's Son.
The Bible (God's Holy Word) states "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3 v 23), so none of us can deny we are a sinner. What is the result of this? "For the wages of sin is death:" (Romans 6 v 23). In other words, in our current sinful position, the Bible states that we are only bound for hell.
So how can we merit a place in heaven and eternal life? If we live good upstanding lives, help the needy, give to charity, attend church, or simply do the best we can, surely God will see our 'good works' and 'let us in' to heaven. NOT according to the Word of God, as "... all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;" (Isaiah 64 v 6) in the eyes of God.
So how can any of us have eternal life? After all, we are nothing but poor sinners, and sin must be punished by death and hell. No matter how much 'good' we do, it is worth nothing in relation to God's holy standards.
BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS -
THE GOSPEL OF GOD'S GRACE
"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." (John 3 v 16)
"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." (John 3 v 17)
We cannot warrant eternal life through our own lives and works because of our sin, so God sent his only sinless, spotless Son to be our sacrifice, to pay for ours sins. "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5 v 21) Jesus Christ was nailed through His hands and feet to a cross, a crown of huge thorns was forced unto His brow, His back was lacerated with a Roman whip, He was spat at and mocked, and His face was battered until it was left unrecognisable, more so than any other man's. But on top of this physical torment, He who never sinned was punished for your sins and for mine. He did it willingly because it was the only way you and I could be saved from death and hell - He is the ONLY means of salvation.
This is the gospel, that Christ died for the ungodly - the whosoever - you and me. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved" (Acts 16 v 31) - saved from death and hell, receiving full forgiveness of your sins for now and for evermore.
So you ask 'how do I guarantee eternal life?' God guarantees it if you acknowledge your sin before God, unable to enter heaven in that state, but look to His Son Jesus Christ, who died for your sin, because of your sin. He willingly sacrificed His own sinless life on the cross to wash away your sin. Simply BELIEVE Jesus Christ did this for you PERSONALLY, and God says you are guaranteed a place in heaven - "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life;" (John 3 v 36).
There is a final word of warning. If you feel your need of salvation, do not delay - ". behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (2 Corinthians 6 v2) You do not know what tomorrow will bring. TRUST JESUS CHRIST as your saviour today because ". all that believe are justified from all things" (Acts 13 v 39), hence all your sins will be forgiven, and you will be saved for all eternity, with heaven as your home.
