THE PROTECTION OF GOD

On February 25, 1990, I received the following message that warns about some of the changes coming to the U.S.A., and how to receive the protection true salvation in Jesus Christ provides for you and your loved ones-For eternity and the days that lie ahead! This message is taken from The Ezekiel Files, and reads as follows...

"Every area of life shall be seeing changes; changes in attitudes toward Me, your God, changes in geographic and scientific atmospheres, and much family situations. Everything that looks bad now shall become even more intolerable. Increases of incest, murder, child abductions, school rapes and others, abuse of all sorts shall increase drastically in a short period of time! My call is for you to enter into My presence by coming to Me for your protection and security by acknowledging Me as your Savior and Lord. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God! Know this and come to Me. For I am the only way!"

Please know that God provides spiritual protection through His free gift of Salvation to all who receive Jesus Christ (heaven). God also can and does provide supernatural physical protection to those who call on His name, though many will lose their life taking a stand for their Christian belief in the days that lie ahead.




HOW TO BEGIN WITH GOD

Below is a list of things you can do to get started with God and receive Him into your own heart and home. Let the process begin with you, then share it with those around you. NOW is the time to prepare for Eternity and the days that lie ahead!


1. Personally receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord!  When you die, it will be just YOU and GOD standing there, and He will open His BOOK OF LIFE and search for YOUR name! Make a decision to receive Jesus Christ into your own heart today. Come as you are; Jesus takes care of the rest! Give the Lord your heart and get saved. Then grow with God and get to know Him one day at a time. You can do this in your own home or wherever you are! A good place to start is by clicking on the Billy Graham sites on the side of this page!

2. Have a relationship with God your Father!  Make God number one in your life and go to Him for all your needs-both great and small! God wants to be included in your life every day. Walk and talk with Him, and ask Him to show you how real He is still today! Let God guide you through the days ahead!

3. Read the Bible, and ask God to teach you His Word!  Search the Scriptures and ask God questions. You'll be surprised what God will show you-If you ask! If you go to church, make sure your teacher is telling you the truth and preparing you for eternity! You can no longer trust what a church teaches just because it has a cross at the top of the building-Or a teacher because they mention Jesus' name. Make sure YOU know what God's Word says, how it's your responsibility to know the truth, and how important your own personal decision for Jesus Christ is! Begin to search for God's truth inside your own heart and home today.

4. Pray in your home and for loved ones!  There is nothing more important than knowing that when a loved one dies, they are safe with God forever! Take a stand and start praying for other family members for Salvation (and for the generations to come), as you make the decision to serve and trust God and walk through your home in prayer. Know that your prayers will be heard and needed for the days that lie ahead!




ALL ABOUT SALVATION

The free gift of Salvation

Did you know Salvation is a FREE gift from God to you? And all you have to do is receive it in faith? And when you do-No matter who you are or what you've done-All your sins are forgiven? You can be saved today if you ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins, confess Him as your Lord, and believe God raised Him from the dead (See Romans 10:9-10). Call on His Name for your Salvation today by saying the simple prayer below...(Or click on the banners to the right)



A Prayer for Salvation

Dear Father, I know that you are the Almighty God, the Creator of heaven and earth. Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and that you suffered and died on the cross for my sins. I believe that on the third day, God raised you from the dead; and you will come back to judge the living and the dead. Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Come fill me with the Holy Spirit and give me eternal life with you when I die. I confess you today as my personal Savior and Lord. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.




Understanding Salvation

Thousands of years ago, in the Garden of Eden, God created man and woman. He provided the perfect place for them to live, eat and walk with Him. It was a place with no sin, filled with the glory and presence of God. This is what God had meant for all of us to have. However, when Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God's command "not to eat of the tree of knowledge," they were tossed out of the garden! On that day, we all were tossed out of the Garden of Eden, from the Presence of God. Whoever is born on earth is born with this sin. To return to God, one must be BORN AGAIN into the Kingdom of God. And the ONLY ENTRANCE into the Kingdom is Jesus Christ, the Son God!



The diagram above is a way to show you the relationship between people on earth, God in heaven, and Jesus Christ as the Only Door to the Father (God's Kingdom). When one receives Jesus Christ in faith, they pass through the Narrow Door into God's Kingdom. They are saved (means rescued from sin) and born again into God's Kingdom. They have passed over from death and given eternal life. It is here where God also gives us the Holy Spirit as our Helper and Teacher. He is God's mark of ownership, and now lives inside of you. It is He who empowers us to live for God, have a daily relationship with God, understand the Bible, hear God's soft voice, know His will, and is the power that takes us up into heaven (as explained in the "Dear God" letter below).


THE BIBLE SAYS YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU ARE SAVED
AND GETTING INTO GOD'S KINGDOM IS THE GOAL!


Many believe the stories told about Jesus in the bible. But salvation and the God in the bible becomes real to you when you get personal and serious with God, make a decision for Jesus Christ, ask Him to come into your heart as your Lord and Savior, and walk into God's Kingdom.

Many also believe that one has to earn their way into heaven. But The Good News is that Jesus Christ already paid the price for your sins in full when He died on the cross. It is through the blood He shed on the cross that your sins are forgiven (redemption). Jesus is the only way to the Father (who is in heaven). And to get into heaven, you must receive in faith this redemption (Jesus Christ paying your debt in full).

Romans 10:9-10 says, "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."

Romans 10:13 says, "Whoever will call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved."

Know there is nothing you can do to earn your way into heaven. It is a free gift from God to you! Receive Jesus Christ into your heart today, and trust Him each day for your salvation and the days that lie ahead. Spend time with God in His Word, and get to know Him. Let Him teach you and reveal to you His Truth, His Kingdom...And Who He is!




Stories on Salvation


(Note: The following letter was written to help you understand the 'grace' in Salvation.)


Dear God, what must I do to be saved?

My dear child,

There is only one way to enter heaven. But you cannot earn it, buy it, or ever be good enough to get in-No matter how hard one tries. For there is only one way to be saved, and that is through faith in My Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only way. It is a free gift from Me to you when you believe in My Son.

In the Bible you will read how 2,000 years ago I sent My Son, Jesus Christ, born of a virgin and conceived by the Holy Spirit, to suffer and die on the cross as the perfect Sacrifice for the sin of the world. Three days later, I raised Him from the dead. And because He conquered death, He lives. And all who believe in Him and receive the Holy Spirit (the same power that raised Jesus from the dead-And will one day raise you from the dead) shall also live, and receive everlasting life.

My dear child, My Son was nailed to the cross in your place. It is through the blood He shed for you that your sins are forgiven. Turn your life back to Me, and receive forgiveness for your sins. If you believe in My Son, you shall be saved. Call upon His Name, the Name of Jesus Christ, for your Salvation today.

As a father hands over his inheritance to his son, so do I hand all authority over to My Son. Jesus Christ is Lord over all! Believe I raised My Son from the dead, and that He lives today. Confess Him as your Lord, and you shall live, as well. For, whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.

My child, study My Word and let no one deceive you. When you leave your world behind, you will live forever in heaven or in hell (both are real places). I sent you My Son because I love you, and do not want you or anyone to perish. Believe in My Son. Stand firm in your faith. So when I search for your name, I will find it-Written in the Lamb's Book of Life!

                                                            Signed, God the Father




Meeting the King

Imagine yourself walking by this magnificent castle. To see all it's splendor inside, you have to walk through the door. There is only one door you can enter-And only one requirement and key to get in: To put all your trust in One Person. But once you were given permission to enter, you were guaranteed access to this castle (or kingdom) for eternity-Never to be turned away. Forever you would dwell in the splendor and wonders of this peaceful and safe place.

So you go to the King standing at the door (who, by the way, is The Door), and you ask him, "Your Majesty, what must I do to get in?"

"Oh," says the King, "This is the place of grace and of mercy-unmerited favor. There is nothing you can do to earn or buy your way into My Father's castle (or kingdom); nor could you ever be good enough. For it's a holy place, and no sin can enter. That's why I am standing here at the door."

"I'm not a perfect man," said the visitor. "In fact, I sin every day even when I don't want to." And he bowed his head and began to slowly walk away.

"Wait! Don't go!" Said the King (or the Father's Son). "I already took care of all that for you! What my Father wants is for you to believe in Me, His Son, and I can let you in and help you! If you receive Me and believe in who I am, I can let you into My castle!"

So the King and the visitor sat down on the steps of the castle. The King (or Son) told the visitor who He was and showed him the marks on his hands, feet and side. Then the Son told the visitor the story of the Cross, how He died for the sins of the world, was buried, and rose again from the dead three days later.

When they finished talking, the visitor said to the King, "I do believe in you and who you say you are-The Son of God! I ask you to forgive me of my sins and receive from you all that you did for me on the cross!" Said the visitor.

The Son received the visitor's response and gave him the Father's Spirit to dwell within him so he could see and understand the things of God. They then entered the castle (God's Kingdom) together. When it was time for the visitor to leave, the King turned to him and said, "Remember, I gave you the Holy Spirit to strengthen and guide you for what I send you back to do. And because I gave you Mine and My Father's Spirit, I know who you are. My seal of Salvation and mark of ownership is now inside you. And when it's time, one day you will return and live here forever with Me and My Father because you believe in Me. But until your time to leave your world comes, tell others about Me (Jesus Christ) and this place (Heaven) so they can come here too. And be sure to let them know many things must happen first. And then I will return to earth. Tell them I AM coming soon!"

The visitor did just that, and began to urgently tell others about the Father's free plan to gather hearts for His Kingdom. And when his day came for him to die, he left this world and joined the Son and the Father forevermore. And all those who the visitor had time to share his story with also came to live there when their time on earth was up. And the people they shared their story with, and who received the Son, also later joined them at the castle...And so on...And so on...




Adrian's Story

A witness to God's grace and mercy during a loved one's last days

On September 22, 2004, I lost my best friend and brother of 49 years to respiratory difficulties due to HIV. My brother was a homosexual, and lived the life style most of his life. Living in Las Vegas before he was admitted into the hospital, his original plan was to die and later have his roommates break the news to his mother and eleven other siblings living in the Midwest. However, as Adrian's condition worsened, a roommate finally called a family member and was encouraged to admit him into a Las Vegas hospital.

Adrian was visited by family members during the next few months. He was quite scared during his earlier stay at the hospital, and looked very thin and much older than his age. But he was always well mannered with hospital staff, and alert enough at times to participate in much testing and medical evaluations. Through the days, family members prayed and nurtured over him with much love and care, as his condition went up and down.

Adrian was a loving brother who always worried about others, and was straight about giving his opinion in hopes of helping someone's life to be better than his own. We all had our problems; and through them, some family members had given their lives to Jesus Christ. But Adrian still seemed angry with God and took a rebellious stand against him whenever given the chance. However, now, loved ones around him were watching the change in Adrian take place. He didn't seem so afraid anymore, and his heart was becoming more peaceful and childlike as time went on. One morning, he woke up with a smile on his face and told my sister he just had a dream of his 6-year-old birthday party (which he mentioned was his best party ever).

While family members stayed with my brother at the hospital, they said that Adrian listened to ministers on the television and mentioned of angels standing by his side. He prayed with anyone who offered to pray with him; and wanted to know where "those people" were that visited and prayed with him the day before (we had contacted an area church to make frequent visits and pray with Adrian and family members at the hospital) (See the CBN Church Finder under Ministries). Then one morning, I received a call from the pastor of this church. He just wanted to let me know he felt Adrian was ready to go home to be with the Lord. And a few days later, Adrian died.

Adrian, in his prayers and heart, asked for forgiveness of his sins and confessed with his mouth his personal belief in Jesus Christ. And if he did this like he always did everything else-I know he said that prayer with all his heart and meant it! And though our brother still died, we know in our hearts he now will live forever in Heaven. As our Shepherd, Jesus Christ took it upon himself (and the people he used) to see that one of his lost sheep were found and safely brought home! The angels (Adrian spoke of often) were even sent to get him prepared for the event! (Even his roommates later noted how he died in peace.)

The bible says one must enter the Kingdom of God as a child. It also talks of  angels who are sent to earth to prepare and escort someone dying into the gates of Heaven. And the bible talks much about the power prayer and faith can have to involve God in our lives while still down here on earth. This story of my brother is short, and doesn't include all the pain and suffering he (and those around him) went through. But it does share the freedom and salvation he finally found in Jesus Christ! It is my hope Adrian's Story will be an encouragement to all to reach out to the grace and love of God alone, and receive the free gift of salvation God offers to all who wish to receive it! For as long as you're still alive, you have time to do what Adrian did-CALL ON JESUS' NAME FOR SALVATION!

I never made it in time to Las Vegas to see my brother before he died. But I was able to say good-bye to him in a dream. In this dream, my brother was walking down a road. He was smiling, looked happy and healthy, at peace, and had a wholesomeness about him he did not have while down here on earth. He turned to look at me and told me he loved me, and we hugged and talked for awhile. When it was time for him to go, I asked him how he is and where he is. His last words to me were, "BECAUSE HE LIVES, I LIVE!"

I know the "HE" Adrian was talking about was Jesus Christ, as mentioned in the "Dear God" letter above. Jesus' arms are still opened wide to receive all who choose to come to Him in faith. In fact, in my dream with Adrain, he asked me to go tell others about Jesus-especially his friends. He said, "You will know who they are! Just look for the broken-hearted!"

I miss my brother, but know one day I will see him again. Until then, I will share his story to encourage others (and his friends) to call upon the name of Jesus Christ for salvation today-And receive eternal life in Heaven like Adrian did!
