Commentary By: Gordon King
People need to know that both heaven and hell are real places, and that we either choose heaven or hell to dwell in for eternity!
Yes, it’s our choice to make, none of us are forced into either place, we choose it for ourselves. And the only way to enter heaven is by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!
We’ve been told many things about heaven by the world, even by many other religions, but the truth is that Jesus Christ is the only way to get there! You can not earn your way there, you cannot buy your way there, you cannot get there by worshiping other gods, no, you can only get there by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Everyone has the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ, He came into this world in order to save the world from sin.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
All of us have sinned, all of us fall short of the glory of God. Everyone can be saved from sin, there are no exceptions, unless you forsake His Holy Spirit.
“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”
Do not blaspheme against the Holy Spirit of God, this is the only sin that cannot be forgiven. All other sins can and will be forgiven if you repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
You may be a prostitute, a drug addict, a thief, a vandal, sexually immoral, a murderer, a liar, but God loves you and wants to forgive you of your sin, you can be saved, you can be born again, you can go to heaven! You may have talked against Jesus Christ for years, you may have persecuted Christians, but all that can be forgiven, and you can receive eternal life!
Do not be deceived into believing that you will get to heaven some day, some way, some how without being born again, it just won’t happen! But you can be assured of going to heaven by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
