Last night, I was at home working on our weekly newsletter and getting it ready for publishing when there was a knock on the door. When I opened it three people greeted me (two men and a woman) and they introduced themselves as being from one of the local churches. I get a few visitors of this sort every now and then as there are between 12 and 13 churches within a 5-mile radius of my house.
One of the men was holding some pamphlets and they said that they had come by to invite me to their church at which point I told them that I am a minister with an online ministry called The Light of Life Ministry. The other man inquired as to what denomination and I told him no denomination, just Christian. (I regret that having being caught off guard, my mind wasn’t working quickly enough to have gone into more detail in explaining that we are not affiliated with any man-made organized religion at all, because they are all filled with only partial truths, falsehoods and lies.)
At this point one of the men stepped forward and asked me if he could ask me a couple questions and I told him that yes, he could. (When I think of it in retrospect, I realize that I felt a lot like how Christ must have felt when the Pharisees and Saducees of the day questioned him.)
His first question was, “If you were to die tonight, would you go to Heaven?”
I replied, “Well, I hope so, but honestly I don’t know as God is ultimately the judge of that. I do all that I can to walk in Christ’s footsteps and whether or not I obtain salvation is left to Him.”
He then said to me, “Okay, so let’s say you die tonight, you go to Heaven and you’re standing before God and God asks you, ‘Why should I let you in?’ what would you say?
After a moment of thought I replied, “I would say ‘Father, I hope that I have served You well and pleased You in all ways. May Your will be done.”
The man then interjected, “Okay but would you have asked Jesus Christ in your heart for forgiveness of your sins?”
I smiled and replied, “I do, every day.”
The man went on to say, “That’s the answer I was looking for.” And then to further explain to me that he asks that question of every person they meet and added as emphasis, “even if the person who answered the door was wearing a white collar, I would still ask him those same questions.”
After they left I prayed to Father, because I felt that I hadn’t done as good a job as I could have in serving Her. The answer that I received was to use this experience as inspiration for an article and vehicle in which to spread truth.
Now, I understand that the purpose of their visit was twofold. One may have been to invite new members to their church but two was obviously to preach that repentance is necessary for forgiveness of sins. However, while it is true that true and deep down repentance of the heart is necessary for the forgiveness of sins, what they were also implying was that repentance is the ONLY requirement for receiving Salvation and entrance into Heaven.
This, my friends, is simply not true.
You see, in this day and age (and by this day and age I mean the End Times), the (false) shepherds of the world preach a truth that is only one sided when truth is actually a double edged sword. While forgiveness awaits those who are truly repentant, made possible by the Ransom Sacrifice of Christ Jesus dying on the cross for our sins; there must be an acceptance of Christ as Lord and Savior AS WELL as a good heart condition in order to obtain Salvation. So, who reads the heart and determines who is worthy and who is unworthy of Salvation and entrance into Her son’s Kingdom? God does.
1 Samuel 16:7 “But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or his stature, because I have rejected him. Man does not see what the LORD sees, for man sees what is visible, but the LORD sees the heart."
The false Christian religions of the world have placed many requirements on Salvation that simply are not true. Some say that you must be baptized in order to receive Salvation. And others say that it only takes an acceptance of Christ. Still others say that it requires only repentance. I don’t know why they preach these things, I’m sure that many are mislead themselves. Or maybe the Truth seems too difficult to them. Maybe the Truth wouldn’t fill their pews and mega-churches and offer enough tithing money with which to prosper. Maybe the Truth wouldn’t make them popular enough or bring them enough notoriety.
But what are we serving Father for, if not to spread the Light of Truth? And if you’re not spreading the Light of Truth which is the Truth in its entirety, are you truly serving Father or are you serving Dawn Lucifer in spreading more falsehoods, half-truths and lies?
It is vitally (necessary to life – ETERNAL life) important at this time more than any other that people understand the TRUTH.
The truth, and it’s important that I share this with you now because there’s not much time left, is that even those who accept Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior may not escape the coming wrath and be included in the Rapture. This is because there are two requirements, not just one, and it is dependent upon the condition of their hearts as well. A good heart is a humble heart and one can be saved by the acceptance of Christ AND a good heart.
I pray that I have helped to bring you to a more accurate understanding of what is required for Salvation, via the knowledge I have shared with you here today. And may Father’s Holy Spirit fill your heart with the wisdom needed in order to discern the truth from all the falsehoods and lies that are currently a part of the darkness of this world we live in. In Christ Jesus’ name I pray, our loving Savior and vindicator of righteous rule, Amen Father Yahweh.
