Jesus is the only way to Heaven and deserves our respect here on earth. If you have never confessed your sins, asked Jesus to forgive them and accepted Jesus as your Savior, then you for sure have denied him. In Revelations, it says if you are not saved, your name will be blotted out of the book of life. Revelation 3:5 (KJV) He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
You might think, “so what if my name is not in the book of life? God is a loving God, I’ve been good. He will let me in”. Sorry people at this point, it is by invitation only. If your name is not in the book, you will not be let in. Think of it this way; if the President of United States had a party and you were not invited, you would not get in.
If, your name is not in the book of life, what will happen to you? The answer to that is: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15(KJV)
Some people do not believe there is a heaven or a hell. Let me tell you there most definitely are. The bible talks about both extensively. Some of your, what I call feel good preachers, only talk about Heaven. Heaven is a great and wonderful place and should be talked about; however, Hell is very real and people need know this. They should not be misguided by feel good preachers into believing that if you are good, God will let you into Heaven. Reality is people, there is only one way into Heaven & that is through Jesus Christ.
For my part, I want no part of Hell. Here are a couple of scriptures, you decide for yourself. Mark 9:48 (KJV) Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Revelation 14:11a(KJV) And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,
A lot of people believe that if you are morally good, you can work your way to Heaven. If you believe this you are among the unbelieving, Because Jesus clearly states that he is the only way to heaven in John 14:6(KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Why am I making this point about unbelievers? Because not only those who we consider “really bad people” go to hell, but also unbelievers. Look at Revelation 21:8 (KJV) But the fearful, and UNBELIEVING, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Let’s go one step further, look at Psalm 9:17 (KJV) The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the NATIONS that forget God. Look at the world today and how many nations have turned their backs on God and forgotten Him. Did this happen overnight? No, we let little bits go at a time, until all at once God is gone. But this verse says whole nations shall be turned into hell. If whole nations are going to hell it really shines a light on; Matthew 7:13-Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
I hope this has helped someone to realize the importance of accepting Jesus as you savior & what it means to deny Jesus! Feel free to comment below. Have a wonderful week!
