How To Be Saved
1. ACKNOWLEDGE YOU ARE A SINNER
2. RECOGNIZE SIN IN YOUR LIFE
Hello My Friend, It’s Your Friend Debbie!
I would like to share my love for Jesus the way it was given to me from Him! Prior to calling on the Lord for help, I had a very difficult time trying to condense my thoughts about this subject. It was so much I wanted to say about Jesus but knew it was impossible to tell it all. However, when God took over my thoughts, He gave me just the right words in an unbelievably short message to give YOU!
I pray what you will read in this very short message will change your life forever and also help to reach many more that are hungering for answers for their souls!
Jesus came to earth as a baby to fulfill a special purpose and he is coming back again much sooner than we think. His coming will happen according to the Bible but for those that do not read it, His existence has also been revealed through the secular History channel. The devil’s job is to convince people not to believe. Jesus was born over 2000 years ago because there was sin on the earth then as it is right now (today). There wasn’t anyone worthy to cover all the mess men had gotten themselves into. Many animals had been sacrificed (killed) for the sins of men but God finally said enough, I will not deal with this horrible group of people any longer that I created over 6000 years ago. They are rebellious and unworthy of my love. My first man Adam was made perfect when I blew the breath of life into his body. I gave him a wife (Eve) by taking a rib out of his side and forming her so they could both enjoy an unbelievable life forever without sin but they got greedy and lost it all! Satan promised them, if they would disobey me, they would be like God but it was a lie that has been carried on since! The moment they sinned, the good life was instantly gone, as will happen to us if we chose to sin.
God loved us so much that he gave His only son Jesus (A man without Sin) to come to earth through young Virgin Mary. He was wrapped in swaddling clothing and lay in a manager to redeem us from our sins. He did not have to come but he chose to bring us back into the fellowship with His Father (GOD). Jesus spent only 33 years on earth, as a normal man with the same feelings as us. He loved, cried, endured pain, ate, slept and grew up with a natural family just like us. The only thing different, he was the SON OF GOD and died for the purpose in which he was sent.
SCRIPTURE: John 3:16 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.
He brutally died for us but then He ROSE AGAIN!
The World knows that Jesus Christ’s name is powerful, the reason they are trying so hard to remove Him from every imaginable thing possible, (schools, education, politics, more…) JESUS’ arch enemy Satan is trying to replace him with cults with the influence of Iluminati and other horribly deceptive wolves in sheep clothing. Regardless, his name is still feared because Satan knows He is the True and Living God! Satan is the present Prince of the Earth and already doomed to hell and everlasting torment. It is waiting for him but not before he deceives as many souls as possible to take with him and that includes you. Don’t believe this lying spirit! BY FAITH, we will see Jesus face to face.
Hell and eternity is FOREVER! There is no escape!
SCRIPTURE: Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
We have to get it right before we die. In fact, we have the opportunity now, to live for Jesus if we want to inherit Heaven. Most people have a very dull perception of Heaven but it is in fact, very much real like an endless vacation to paradise. HEAVEN is anything you can imagine good, exciting and desirable; it’s not even comprehensible!
SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Think of the best feeling you ever had in your life, best time, person, food, achievement experienced and magnify them a billion times over; that’s Heaven. You don’t want to miss Heaven, it is the greatest gift of eternity. When you shut your eyes in death, your new chosen life begins (good or bad). Heaven by no means is a dull place or experience as Satan has portrayed it to be! We can choose Sin for a season but the consequences will be horrific.
SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
I would not want to take a chance to believe that God’s word was not true and stand before Him as he pronounces my judgment for choosing the pleasures of this world for a season over Him.
When you die, all your chances will be over because only what we do for Christ is going to last.
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Forget about people and what they are doing, it has absolutely nothing to do with you. You will stand before God All Alone, by yourself, which will be either the best or the worst moment of your life. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by or the people you love. If you have any belief left in you that God is as real as he has ever been, you need to repent now! You need to ask the Lord to Save you from this wicked world, while you still have time or it will be too late.
SCRIPTURE: Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
God, the creator of Heaven and the earth is giving you a chance to be SAVED if you want. He will not beg, push or burst your door down. He will only stand at your door and knock, you will have to open the door and let him in.
You also have one more responsibility to Jesus Christ and that is to proclaim Him to the world without shame.
SCRIPTURE: Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; …Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Jesus was given 33 years to do all that he did on earth for us. Now, it is time to find him for ourselves and help open the door for others to find His Love, starting with the people we love most (our families) and then to the world. You don’t want to see anyone lost (Heaven and Hell is real), where do you want to spend eternity (FOREVER)?

ACKNOWLEDGE – Admit you are a sinner. Be honest with yourself. You and God know the real truth.
WHAT IS YOUR SINS? All unrighteousness. Romans 3:23, For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
REPENT – What is repentance? To repent is to be Godly sorry, sorry enough to quit wrong doings. Acts 3:19, Repent ye therefore, and be converted that your sins may be blotted out…
CONFESS – Confession means to admit, own up to and reveal your sins to God. 1 John 1:19, If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
FORSAKE – This means to forsake, quit, give up and leave worldly and sinful things alone once and for all; be willing for God to take all desire for sin away from you. Isaiah 55:7, Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him: and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
BELIEVE – This means you must believe in God and totally rely on Him. You must have faith and confidence in Him and be willing to put yourself into the hands of GOD. Romans 10:9, If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Acts 16:31, And they said, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house. (This means your very own family)
ACCEPT -You must accept the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior. Accept means to take, receive or welcome Jesus into your life and heart. John 1:12, but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
John 6:37, All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me, and him that cometh to Me I will in wise cast out. Christ must be received personally into the heart by faith, if the experience of a new birth is to be yours.
Rev. 3:20, Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if any man (this means you) hear my voice and open the door, I will come unto him and will sup (abide) with him and he with Me.
Luke 2:8, Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him shall the son of man also confess before the angels of God.
HOW TO BE SANCTIFIED
John 17:17, Sanctify them through thy WORD….
You are now a CHILD of GOD and it is the will of God for you to become SANCTIFIED as stated in… 1 Thes. 4:3, “For this is the will of God even your SANCTIFICATION.”
SANCTIFICATION means CLEANSING from ones SINS.
SEPARATION from the world, its lusts and defilement.
SETTING ASIDE yourself for the service of God.
This is not only a definite and instantaneous word of Grace; but also a continual process necessary for our spiritual growth.
A set apart life for Christ will help you secure your Sanctification.
The Specific roles of the God Head in our Sanctification:
GOD THE FATHER – Jude 1:1…to them that are SANCTIFIED by GOD The Father and preserved in Jesus Christ.
CHRIST THE SON – Heb. 13:12, Wherefore JESUS also, that he might SANCTIFY the people through suffering with His own blood.
THE HOLY SPIRIT – II Thes. 2:13… because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through SANCTIFICATION of the SPIRIT and belief of the truth.
THE BLOOD – I John 1:7, and the BLOOD of Jesus Christ, His son CLEANSES US from all sin.
THE HOLY WORD (BIBLE) – Eph. 5:26… that He might SANCTIFY it with the washing of water by the WORD.
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF YOU IN ORDER TO BE SAVED?
I Thes. 4:3, 4. This is the will of God even your SANCIFICATION…
Isaiah 1:16, Wash you, make you clean, put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do well.
SANCTIFICATION is something that we must pursue, or seek earnestly if we are to obtain salvation. While it is God’s work that we have our part in it; to make it the object of our earnest desire and pursuit.
We attain SANCTIFICATION through presenting our members as servants (literally slaves) to righteousness and becoming ourselves bondservants unto God. We are not our
Own. We were bought by the blood of JESUS CHRIST.

HOW TO STAY SAVED
As new born babes, I Peter 2:2
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
Now that you have received the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, you have had a definite transaction with him, and He has received you.
Start by counting every blessing He has ever bestowed upon you.
Remind yourself how good He is to you.
Don’t take anything He does for you for granted (your breathing, walking, talking, hearing, seeing even your peace of mind.)
You should stop right now and say, “THANK YOU JESUS FOR BEING ALIVE.” Many are dead and will never have another opportunity for Salvation. Now that you have HIM, Keep Him!
1. You have become a child of God. John1:12, But as many as received Him, to them gave He power (or privilege) to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
2. Your sins are forgiven. Acts 10:3. To him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.
3. You have passed from death to life. John 5:24. Verily, verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation: but is passed form death unto life.
DON’T do anything that will not glorify God. I Cor.10:31.
DON’T try to discover how little Christ will accept but how much. 1 Chron.4:10
The best man is an unsafe example, so follow Jesus. Jer. 17:5
SEEK at once, power from on high. Luke 24:49. Acts 2:39, 4:31
WHAT YOU SHOULD NOW DO AS A CHILD OF GOD
1. You should be baptized.
Acts. 10:48, And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Further He commanded the disciples to go baptizing in the Names of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
2. You should read your Bible daily.
Ps: 119:11, Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.
3. Spend time in His presence, praising and praying.
Luke 18:1, Men ought always to pray, and faint not.
4. When conscious of having failed HIM, confess it.
I John 1:9. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.
5. Be a witness to others.
Acts 1:8 Ye shall be witnesses.
6. Meet regularly with other Christians.
Heb 10:25. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.
7. Fill your life with good works. Titus 3:8.
I hope you have found Jesus Today or maybe even renewed your walk with Him. Jesus Loves you very much and doesn’t want anyone to be lost. Jesus is coming sooner than you think so get READY and STAY READY! Most importantly, tell someone else about His Love.(Encourage others to visit this website, it may bless them too!) God Bless YOU!
