This is the only way to heaven- the gospelPosted 2 years Ago

I'm not here to debate but to spread my faith as I believe everybody no matter their past, Their sexuality, Race or background is welcomed into heaven by God.

God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son to die for our sins, Past, Present and future so that we would become the righteousness of God, Jesus became sin having not ever sinned so that he could be the final sin offering once and for all.

In the beginning, God made the world and it was good, But then Satan came upon the scene and tempted Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, That caused them to be kicked out of the garden of Eden, Caused death, Punishment, Sickness, Evil and separation from God, But God wanted to reconcile us as we were created to enjoy fellowship with both man and God, In fact God the father came down in the form of his son Jesus Christ to die for us as a way of offering us his hand to save us and set us free.

To give you a better idea of Jesus, He came to earth not just to give his life up for us, But to teach us about God, He came to fulfill the law, He came to show compassion on us poor sinners and show us the way to righteousness as he was Gracious, Is gracious and will ever be gracious to us, Now isn't having faith in Jesu's death and resurrection a good offer to get ino heaven? God has always loved the sinner but hated the sin, So much that Jesus Christ sat with sinners and befriended them, Eventually teaching his disciples how to be Christlike through the Holy Spirit once he went to heaven.

God chose us before we were ever born having always known and loved us, He formed us in ou mothers womb, Knew how many hairs we had on our head, He will always look out for us, Teach us, Even disapline us he would his son. The God in the Old Testament still exists but his wrath is only on unbelievers and people who reject him and do evil on purpose. Our Heavenly Father desires us to be saved, To be saved, Follow these steps. . .

First admitt that you are a sinner and do wrong from time to time and need a saviour and Gods Grace, Admit that we all fall short of the Lord (even us Christians, But don't worry, His Holy Spirit will show how to overcome sins overtime! We are saved anyway! ), Then

Believe that Jesus is God in bodily form having always existed, Who came down to earth to teach us about God, Teach us how to righteous, Generous and forgiving, Was betrayed, Tortured, Mocked, Died on the cross to pay for our sins, Then was buried and on the third day Rose from the dead. Believe that his death alone is enough to pay for our sins and that God forgives us and accepts us for who we are. ("It is not the righteous who needs a doctor but the sick") then

Confess openly to Jesus that you messed up and ask him to have mercy on you and forgive you. Explain that you have faith in this death and resurrection and want to move forward now with a clean slate, Also ask to recieve his Holy Spirit (with this you will find prayer and understanding the bible so much easier) and receive in faith (ask and you shall receive, Knock and the door will be opened)

Congratulations you are now a born again Christian! To grow in your faith, It's a good idea to join a bible preaching church so you can worship with fellow Christians whilst hearing sound doctrine and making some lifelong friends in the process! I also recommend getting either a KJV or a NKJV version bible as I find it's the best translation. When you revive the Holy Spirit you may or may not feel anything but it's there nevertheless and you should find overtime changes in yourself like being more patient, Understanding, Kind etc, Overtime the bible should be more understandable and you should almost hear Gods voice when you read the bible, The old an der New Testament will make much more sense too (i recommend reading Genesis first then Mathew, Then go from there), Prayer comes naturally and you hear back from a God either in thoughts, Ideas, Conversations with another person or even recommended videos on YouTube, It's important to have faith that you will hear back, Because he does!

I have to warn that if you think you heard from God, You should test whether what he is saying is biblical or sounds like he's convincing you to lie, Steal or do something immoral, Then it's not God speaking you, Though this is rare that this happens.

Have a blessed day and good luck
