Do you have a seat in heaven?

What do think when you hear the word “Jesus”?

Condemnation, religion, Church, rules , republican and dogma? I hope to answer some of these questions. Let us see what the bible says.

John 3:14-17
14 "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. 16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

To us it says we only have to believe and that’s where it goes.  So, when you boil it down, it’s a change in your belief system, not a turn to a religious body or church doctrine.

What about rules?

Let’s start by the laws that govern our behavior in the United States. Try not paying taxes and see what happens. God knew we would all fall short. How about lying (by omission), stealing and bearing false witness (Gossip) and pre-marital sex? I fall short of many of these. What will we say when confronted by God? I’m sorry? That’s not enough. God wants to have an intimate relationship with each one of us and will seek us out like a father coming to the rescue! God sent his son to redeem us and bring us into his family!

Sacrifice, God needs this to forgive our sins. Jesus came as an offering for us in order to enter his kingdom.

I understand that we were born into sin thanks to Adam and Eve. I hope this answers a couple of these questions. If we all were not set into sin, why would God send his son to suffer and die for us?

So, this system of universal laws pertain to us. We used to burn sheep, goats and cattle as offerings to receive forgiveness then Jesus came as an offering for us all!! Even you!! Now is the time and now is the place!
 Simply say

"Jesus, I am sorry for my sins, I surrender completely to you, write my name in the Lamb’s book of life, Thank you Jesus!!"

There is an eternal reservation in heaven just for you!! Thank you for reading through this blog! You have taken a huge step in your life and want to congratulate you!!
What are the benefits you ask?
