Eternal Security

Dear Friend, we would like to ask you the most important question of your life: “Where will you spend eternity?” The following Bible verses clearly teach how simple salvation is.

Four things you must know:

1. All have sinned.
Isaiah 53:6 – all we like sheep have gone astray.
Romans 3:10 – none righteous, no not one.
Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

2. All will die.
Ezekiel 3:20 – he shall die in his sin.
Romans 6:23 – the wages of sin is death.
Hebrews 9:27 – it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
James 1:15 – sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

3. The second death.
Revelation 20:14,15 – death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Psalm 9:17 – The wicked shall be turned into hell.
Matthew 10:28 – Fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 23:33 – how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Mark 9:44 – The fire is not quenched.
Mark 9:47 – Hell fire.
Luke 16:24 – I am tormented in this flame.
Luke 16:25 – thou art tormented.
Luke 16:28 – place of torment.
2 Peter 2:4 – cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgement.
Revelation 21:8 – and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

4. Jesus died for your sin.
Romans 5:8 – Christ died for us.
2 Corinthians 5:21 – he made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.
1 Peter 2:24 – who his own self bare our sins in his own body.
Isaiah 53:5,6 – he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities…the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Romans 6:23 – the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Romans 10:9,10,13 – 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. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
John 6:37 – him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
Ephesians 2:8,9 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.
Titus 3:5 – Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…
1 John 5:13 – These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life.
2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
John 5:24 – He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Dear Friend, God loves you. He sent His Son to die for your sins. Church, baptism, confirmation, sacraments, good works, or the rosary cannot pay for your sins. Only Jesus can save you. If you realize you are a sinner, eternally lost, then simply pray, believing in your heart:
“Dear God, I know I am a sinner, deserving death and hell to pay for my sins. Dear Jesus, Please forgive me of my sin, come into my heart, and save my soul. I am trusting only you for my salvation. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.”
