SOMETHING has contributed to a general feeling of unease in the local area (Which is generally laid back and “goes with the flow“).
One indication is a LOT of people asking questions about “how they can be sure of going to heaven?”
Another question was popped this afternoon on the topic.
Here was the answer(s) given.
1- “Everyone who GENUINELY wants to be saved, will be saved.”
Almost immediately, this prompted a second question. “Saved from WHAT?”
Perdition and the lake of fire were then mentioned.
2- The Study of the Bible is Profitable for EVERYONE–Not Just Believers
Upon learning that God’s Word instructs those who are perusing it to STUDY it, NOT read it, ANOTHER QUESTION was asked.
“You’re kidding, right?”
3- You have to live your life as though it was only a test and the NEXT LIFE is the IMPORTANT ONE.

Once the reader realizes the importance of leaving this world behind, he is on his way to eternal salvation.
4- Trust in Jesus Christ to get you through the hard times spiritually.
“That’s it? That doesn’t seem so hard.”
“But it is HARD. Because (almost) everyone wants the comfort and joy of the things of the world instead of eternal salvation.”
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
DOES the reader believe he knows the way to heaven and how to get there?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
A Reminder: The Gospel is Simple
