What Must I Do To Be Saved?

Want to learn how to get to Heaven? Well you will need a very long ladder, because the truth is that we do not “get” to Heaven, it is our Heavenly Father who “takes” us there and this is what the video above explains. The Creator of the universe is a holy and just God and because He is so holy, His standards are perfect. The Bible explains to us that the righteousness of men in God’s sight is as “filthy rags”:

Isaiah 64:6
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

The Bible goes on to say that the punishment for our imperfections or “sins” is death and eternal separation from God:

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death

So, mankind is faced with this dilemma, and we inherited this imperfection from Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, where the first humans sinned against God, which is recorded in Genesis Chapter 3 of the Bible. Just as genes can be passed down through a family tree, this “original sin” has been passed down to us as the Bible explains:

Romans 5:12
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

To remedy this imperfection or “sin nature” that we all possess, our Heavenly Father has given to us His personal ambassador; a mediator; His own Son, Jesus Christ, who is willing and able to bridge the gap between mankind and God. The Bible reveals to us exactly how the Lord Jesus Christ did this:
jesus on the cross

Isaiah 53:5
But he (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
Who his (Jesus) own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (cross), that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Romans 10:9-10
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.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Yes, through Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection, which is documented in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, all men who believe in Christ can now be reconciled to God and upon death can have fellowship with God in Heaven instead of being sent to Hell, a place of eternal punishment:

Matthew 25:46
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Once we accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and believe in Him as the video above explains we are comforted with the assurance of eternal life:

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

But as the Romans 8:1 indicates we must “walk not after the flesh.” Well what is the “flesh” described in the Romans 8:1? Thankfully, the writer of Romans, Paul, defines for us what this “flesh” is in his letter to the Galatians:

Galatians 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

So, to receive true salvation we must do two things, first of all we must believe and have faith in Jesus Christ which is gained by reading God’s Word, the Bible as Romans 10:17 says:

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Secondly, we must turn from our old ways and avoid the past sins which we practiced before knowing Christ. God has provided His Holy Spirit to empower us with the means to not stumble in sin anymore:
the holy spirit

Ezekiel 36:26, 27
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
John 16:13
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

So, please pray this prayer and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour right now:
“Heavenly Father, as I come into you presence now, I forgive all those who have ever sinned against me Lord and release myself from all the pains and bitterness of the past that others have inflicted upon me. Father, I ask now that You, in turn, forgive me now of all my sins against You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, the Creator of the Heavens, Earth, the Seas and all that is in them. I believe that Your Son died for my sins and rose from the dead and is seated now at your right hand. Heavenly Father, I turn away from all my sins, I pray that You will pour out Your Holy Spirit upon me and empower me to avoid sin. I also pray that You will release me from every addiction that has power over me and from every demonic influence in my life. Father please release Your holy angels to protect me from every danger and I pray that You will heal my mind, my spirit and my body from every form of sickness and disease. I pray this prayer in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer and meant it, then you are now a child of the Most High God, the Lord is faithful and true and has now forgiven you of all your sins and you are now guaranteed the chance to live with Him forever! It is your duty now to grow as a new Christian by reading the Bible, praying and serving the Lord God with your life. We all must live holy lives and abstain from all sin, but even if you and I fall short and sin, do not panic for the God’s Word tells us that:

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
John 14:13-15
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
1 John 2:1-2
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God my brother or sister! I pray now that the Lord blesses you and strengthens you to remain faithful to Him! Remember to Pray Hard, Keep Watch, Stand Firm, Be Ready, Finish Strong and Overcome!!  Amen!
