The Greatest Question:
“If a man die, shall he live again?…”   – Job 14:14

Death may steal from us the ones we love, but for followers of Christ the separation is only temporary. The resurrection of Jesus assures us that just as death could not hold Him, so too the tonb cannot cling to the children, parents, friends, and companions who have died before us. Christ ressurrection is the foundation of our hope.

American evangelist D. L. Moody(1837-1899) told of a soldier at the battle of Inkerman (Crimean War, 1854) who was somehow able to crawl back to his tent after he was shot. When he was later found, he was lying face-down, his open Bible before, his hand stuck to one of the pages by his blood which covered it. When his hand was lifted, some of the words from the printed page were clearly visible on it. the verse was this: “I am the resurrection, and the life:he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”(John 11:25). Said Moody, “I want a religion like that, which can comfort even in death.

“And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son” I John 5:11

There are some things you must know and believe in, in order to get to Heaven. God shows us the way to Heaven in the Bible, God’s Holy Word.

1. We are sinners, and have come short of God’s glory.

2. Because of sin we have earned death, and separation from God forever in Hell.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death.”

Revelation 21:8-“…and all liars, shall have their part in the lake of fire which burneth with fire and brimestone which is the second death.”

3. But we do not have to go to Hell because Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins in our place.

Romans 5:8-“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

4. In order to be saved from our sins, and know we will go to Heaven, each of us must repent(a voluntary change in the mind of the sinner in which he turns from sin), and trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour.

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”.

Romans 10:13-“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe the facts above, and sincerely want to receive Jesus Christ into your heart, pray this prayer to Him:

Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner deserving God’s penalty of sin, which is Hell. I believe that Jesus paid the penalty of sin for me on the cross; and right now, the best I know how, I turn from my sins and come to you, Lord Jesus. Come into my heart, and save me from my sin. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
