In this Bible Study I would not tell you a lie about such an important place that our Lord Jesus instructed the Apostle John to write about in the last book of Revelation. Now in the last two chapters which is 21 and chapter 22 of the great book of Revelation, John tells us of a beautiful place that our Lord God has made and it is called Heaven.
This Heaven was made and prepared for all who have been redeemed by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and has accepted Him as their Lord and savior. We that have repented of our sins and called upon the name of Jesus and ask Him to save us. And after being Baptist in water and this is a testimony to the world that we are barned again and we are a new person in our Lord Jesus Christ. There is so much that I could tell you about this place called Heaven, but you must read these two chapters for yourself that our Lord God gave to John while he was marooned on the inland of Patmos. This place that we call Heaven is where we as born again believers in Jesus Christ will meet all of our love one that died in Christ and knew Him as their personal savior. Here in Heaven is where we shall see our Lord Jesus the one who paid for our sins and died there on that old rugged Cross for the sins of the whole world. Now we believe this happened because Jesus was buried in a borrowed tomb and after 3 days He was resurrected and walked upon this earth again. We know and believe this because He meet with all the disciples where Jesus instructed them just how important the last supper would be to the church. Jesus also instructed all of the disciples on how important in was for them to continue the great mission on telling God’s Word to everyone that would listen to them about the Good news which is the gospel. Also the apostle John tells us that the New Jerusalem will be the dwelling place throughout eternity for all the saints of all ages and fulfills the hope of Abraham for the Heavenly city in (Hebrews 11:10-16); and in (Hebrews 12:22-24). We as born again believers in Jesus Christ do believe that this life in Heaven is a real life which is called “eternal”, because it is from the eternity which is past to the eternity and which is to come. We believe that it is the life of our God revealed in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is God in (John 1:4); (John 5:26); and in (I John 1:1-2). We should remember that this life of God, which was revealed in Jesus Christ, and is imparted in a new birth by the Holy Spirit, which was acting upon the Word of God, to every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ in (John 3:3-15). Remember this life thus imparted is not a new life except in the sense of human possession; and it is still “that which was from the beginning.” But the recipient is a new creation in (II Corinthians 5:17); and (Galatians 6:15). And the life of God which is in the believer is an un-severed part of the life which is eternally was, and eternally is, in Jesus Christ and this one life in Him and in the believer; Vine and branches, and the Head and members in (John15:1-5); (I Corinthians 6:17); (I Corinthians 12:12-14); (Galatians 2:20); (Colossians 1:27); (Colossians 3:3-4); and (I John 5:11-12). Now when our Lord Jesus comes back for His Church which is the Saints and all that know Jesus as their personal Savior will meet our Blessed Savior, in the air. Now we have the Lord God’s promise in the book of (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). Now you can read the Apostle Paul’s revelation of the translation of the Church in these verses in God’s Holy Word the Bible. Please read the scriptures below.
- But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. (I Thessalonians 4:13);
- For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (I Thessalonians 4:14);
- For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. (I Thessalonians 4:15);
- For the Lord him-self shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (I Thessalonians 4:16);
- Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (I Thessalonians 4:17);
- Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (I Thessalonians 4:18);
1) Does Your Bible tell you that there is only One Way that you can go to Heaven? Then your answer should be yes. The Only Way to God is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. But the Word of God also tells us that there is No Other Way but through the name of Jesus. Then my answer would be Yes, Jesus is the one and only true way Heaven.
2) Now what should the unbelievers believe about the bible? This is what I believe, I believe that the bible is God’s Holy Word and His Word is our guide to salvation and eternal life. I also believe the bible when it tells me I am a sinner and that the penalty for sin is eternal separation from God Almighty.
3) I also believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. And that He rose from the grave to provide a new life for me and to all who places their faith in Jesus Christ.
4) Now if you have responded yes to the questions above. But you have not responded to what you believe in God’s Holy Word. The Holy Bible tells you how to receive Jesus Christ and God’s gift of eternal life. There are just three things listed below that a sinner should do so that you might receive His gift of eternal life.
5) First you must “Repent of your sins.” Now Jesus said, “Except you repent, you shall all likewise perish,” (Luke 13:3). Now the word repentance means that you have turned from your sinful life and given your life to Jesus Christ.
6) Second you must believe in the bible and what God’s Word says, “For by grace are you saved through faith,” (Ephesians 2:8). This verse in the bible means that you have trusted only in Jesus to save you. Now your faith in Him makes Jesus your Lord and Savior.
7) Third you should pray, the moment that you repent and believe in the name of Jesus you should call upon Him in prayer. Now you should simply pray, “Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and I ask you to forgive me for all of my sins. I ask you Jesus to come into my heart to save me and take control of my life. I thank you Jesus for being my Lord and Savior. Amen. Then your name will be written into the “Book of Life.” And then you will have a home with Jesus in Heaven for all eternity.
8) Now God forms man and prepares the Garden of Eden for him, we can read about the first man in the book of Genesis. Now God’s plan for our salvation began before the first man sinned and his name was Adam. In (Genesis 2:7); the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. In (Genesis 2:8); the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. In (Genesis 2:9); and out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
In (Genesis 2:15); and the Lord God took the man, and put him into the “Garden of Eden” to dress it and to keep it. In (Genesis 2:16); and the Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat. In (Genesis 2:17); but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. In (Genesis 2:18); and the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make man a help mate for him in (Genesis 3:1).
9) In (Genesis 3:1); Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden? In (Genesis 3:2); and the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. In (Genesis 3:3); but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest you die. In (Genesis 3:4); and the serpent said unto the woman, you shall not surely die: In (Genesis 3:5); for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. In (Genesis 3:6); And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. In (Genesis 3:7); and the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. In (Genesis 3:8); and they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. In (Genesis 3:9); and the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? In (Genesis 3:10); and he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. In (Genesis 3:11); and he said, who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? In (Genesis 3:12); and the man said, the woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. In (Genesis 3:13); and the Lord God said unto the woman. What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Now in (Genesis 3:1-13); is the temptation and the fall of mankind and it was because Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, and God hath said, you shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die. When Adam and Eve ate this forbidden fruit their eyes were opened and they knew that they were naked; and by their disobeyed to God it brought the first sin upon all mankind into this world.
10) We have a family bond with our Lord Jesus that can only come from believing in Him as our savior. Now we belong to His Heavenly family and we must share this special; loving feelings and His message of salvation with our children and tell it to other family friends because it is commanded to us by the Lord Jesus Christ. Here in the book of (Matthew chapter 28 verses 18-20); Jesus spoke to His disciples saying that all authority is given unto Him in Heaven and in earth. In these two verses Jesus said, Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son; and of the Holy Spirit. By teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.
11) Now what can we that are Christians say to someone who believes that Jesus is just one of many ways to God? How can we challenge someone else thinking without alienating them? Well as believer in our Lord Jesus Christ I can say without shadow of doubt in my mind that Jesus is the only way to go to Heaven because of His death and resurrection on the Cross and God’s Word said so. Jesus said to Peter, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6);
12) When people criticize Christians as narrow minded and bigoted for saying that Jesus is the only way to God, they need to understand that our God (Jehovah), who has built a bridge to Himself in Jesus, was not obligated to build even that one bridge. Now we as born again believers could have been left with no way to get to God at all! Well I believe that our God went to all the trouble and made the sacrifice to build a bridge to Himself in “his only Son”. Now in (John 3:15); My God said, that “whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. But in (John 3:16); He also said; “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. He also said in (John 3:17); “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. Then He also said in (John 3:18); “that He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God which is Jesus.
13) Now if you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior I would ask all sinners to think about the God that has created the Heaven and the earth and everything that is in it. Remember God (Jehovah), has provided only one way for all people to come to Him. And God (Jehovah), did this because He loved all humanity. Now the Jews believed that God (Jehovah), loved them and they are His chosen people. But our God (Jehovah), didn’t just love them. But God (Jehovah), loved the world and all mankind too. Here in (Luke 19:10); Jesus said to him, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Now in (II Peter 3:9-10); The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, here we see that our God has went to great lengths to make it possible for people to be saved, by sending His only Son (Jesus) to be executed on the cross for all sinners behalf.
14) Now Jesus declared that, as God incarnate among His people which the name “Immanuel” means “God is with us”. Jesus is the “Good Shepherd” and the only door into the fold of God’s people in (John 10:7-11). Many people and religions claim to have the answer, but the truth is found only in Jesus. Adults need to discover that Jesus is the only way to God and the only source of abundant life.
15) This lesson is important because it focuses on Jesus as our Shepherd and on the relationship He has with us as His sheep. It’s important because of its emphasis on the abundance and satisfaction we experience as we walk with the Shepherd. Coming off the Christmas season, many people feel a sense of emptiness. In spite of all the gift-giving, parties, and holiday greetings, their lives have not changed positively; and they still feel a gnawing void inside. They need to discover the joy of relying on Jesus to walk with them and give them what truly satisfies.
16) Jesus had given sight to a man born blind. In response to the man’s worship, Jesus announced that His coming into the world resulted in judgment. People who realized their spiritual blindness would turn to Him for sight; however, those who claimed to have spiritual sight and rejected Him would incur a self-imposed blindness (Please read all of these scriptures in (John 9:1-39).
17) In the form of a question, some Pharisees asserted that surely they were not blind (read verse 40). Jesus responded that if they had no spiritual insight they would bear no guilt caused by sin; but because they claimed to see spiritually, as long as they rejected Him their sin and guilt would remain on them (read verse 41). They willfully blinded themselves by closing their eyes to “the light of the world” (John 9:5).
18) In the book of (John 10:1-6), Jesus spoke a “parable” in (verse 6) or illustration of a true, ideal shepherd who entered the sheepfold “by the door” in (John 10:2). The picture was that of a large village sheepfold in which multiple flocks stayed overnight. The fold had one door and only one guardian. Jesus likened Himself as the shepherd who entered the door. He called His sheep by name and led them outside to find pastures. They followed Him because they recognized his voice and He was their master. They would have shied away from the unfamiliar voice of an impostor. The Pharisee failed to understand Jesus’ illustration, so He elaborated it, giving further details.
19) Jesus stated plainly, Verily, verily, I say unto you. The phrase Verily, Verily, means “truly, truly” in the Greek text and calls attention to what follows as very significant.
20) In John’s Gospel, Jesus often used the phrase I am of Himself. In each case, it indicated His Deity in (Exodus 3:1); and (Exodus 4:17); recounts God’s calling Moses to return to Egypt and lead the Israelites out of bondage. During the conversation between Moses and God, Moses asked what name he should give for God if the people asked His identity. God responded that Moses was to tell them, “I AM hath sent me unto you” (Exodus 3:14). The Hebrew term rendered (I Am) has come over into English as Yahweh or Jehovah, Israel’s covenant God. This name is most often represented in Scripture by the term Lord (read verses 14-15). With His use of the title “I Am” here Jesus indicated that He was God in the flesh, present among people in (John 8:54-59).
21) I am the door of the sheep stressed that Jesus is the only means of salvation, the only access to God’s kingdom, the fold of His people. Jesus’ repeated use of the pronouns I and me emphasized His exclusivity. In using the phrase “I am the door”, Jesus was using an image that was slightly different from the one He’d used previously in verse two). In verse two the image was that of a large village fold where there was a door and the shepherd was the doorkeeper. Now in verse seven, the image Jesus used was that of a hillside fold where primitive, makeshift walls were constructed. Such a fold had no door, merely an opening across which a shepherd would lie at night to ensure that no one entered and that no sheep escaped. In that sense, the shepherd himself was the fold’s door. Jesus was and is the Shepherd of God’s fold who guards the entrance or opening.
22) Jesus’ assertion that all that ever cattle before Him were thieves and robbers did not, of course, refer to legitimate leaders God had raised up for His people. Jesus was referring to false leaders who misled or mistreated God’s people His flock. His words echoed God’s scathing indictment of His people’s corrupt “shepherds” in (Ezekiel 34:1-10). The Greek term rendered thieves in (John 10:8); has the idea of people who stole by stealth; the word robbers; designates the people who used force to take what they wanted. Who then specifically does the phrase thieves and robbers represent? Now here suggestions include self-appointed leaders such as false messiahs, false prophets, or insurrectionists advocating revolution. These leaders were motivated by selfishness and power, whether they sought these by craft or violence. These imposters were thieves and robbers in the sense of being malicious intruders among God’s flock, seeking to take advantage of His people. Genuinely pious Jews, however, were not deceived. As they a waited God’s promised Messiah, they rejected the false leader’s claims and promises.
23) Here in verse nine Jesus emphasized again His Deity (I am) and that He was the door which is the only entrance into God’s fold (kingdom). He affirmed that whoever entered God’s fold through Him would be saved. Despite whatever assumptions they may have had, Jews and in particular the Pharisees Jesus addressed were not automatic in God’s fold. Their entering depended on their responding positively to Him. In the Greek text, the phrase by me is emphatic; only having a personal relationship with Jesus enable or enables people to enter God’s fold. If they placed their faith in Him, they would be saved, delivered from their sins and made spiritually whole. Moreover, they would go in and out and find pasture. In this context, entering the fold indicate safety and security. Going out and finding pasture referred to freedom, spiritual nurture, and joy. Going in and out referred to daily activities. The believers’ Shepherd infuses their daily lives with freedom from sin’s dominance, with spiritual nourishment, and with joy.
24) Jesus drew a sharp contrast between Himself and false, self-seeking religious leaders. The thief used cunning deception to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. While hiding his motives behind calculated pretense, he would go to any means to take what he wanted with no care for anything or anyone else.
I) How does this describe false teachers today?
25) Now by rejecting Jesus and insisting on their legalistic system for right relationship with God, the religious leaders of Jesus’ day were choosing self-destruction and were leading others to ruin. Now Jesus came so people could have life and have life more abundantly. He came to give life and to sustain that life. His purpose was redemptive, motivated by self-giving love. The Greek word translated life is John’s distinctive term for eternal life God’s kind of life (qualitative) that is unending (quantitative). The phrase more abundantly translates the Greek term that means “over-flowing.” Jesus gives and sustains life that is full and rich beyond our imagining or describing.
26) Jesus is the only door to enter for eternal life, and He is always open to you. Do not rely on other things, such as the Christmas presents you received last week to satisfy your life. To experience a full, abundant life, come to Jesus. With His emphatic statement, I am the good shepherd, Jesus moved from using an image of the door of a sheepfold, to using the figure of the shepherd. His declaration both expressed His Deity, I am, and again contrasted Him to the false, self-seeking leaders He called “thieves and robbers in verse eight.
27) Behind the title good shepherd likely lays God’s words through His prophet in (Ezekiel.34:10-24). Israel’s leaders had used God’s flock to their advantage instead of taking proper care of the people. Therefore God said I will feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers. I will feed them in a good pasture, I will feed my flock’ in (verses 13-15). Then He declared; I will setup one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd” in (verse 23). The Pharisees knew the Hebrew Scriptures very well. They hardly could have missed Jesus’ indictment of them and His claim to be God’s appointed Shepherd. But the Word of God tells us in the book of John that our Lord Jesus is truly the “Good Shepherd”. Here as the good shepherd, Jesus would give his life for the sheep. The word good has the senses of moral excellence, competency, and attractiveness. Here, the term has the even stronger meaning of “genuine” or “authentic.”
28) Now in contrast to those self-seeking religious leaders, Jesus was and still is the good Shepherd who demonstrated His love and care for people by offering His own life in exchange for theirs.
But later on; Jesus gave this great act of love resulting; in His sacrificial death on the cross for them. The Greek term rendered giveth can present the idea of risking life or of setting it aside. Jesus did both for the people. Now Jesus died for sinner’s behalf to remove the sin barrier between them and God. Yes Jesus is truly the Good Shepherd who gave His life for all us sinners.
II) “There Are Biblical Truths here in this Lesson that we as believers can focus on in the book of John”.
29) Jesus is the “Bread of Life”; and they said therefore unto him, what sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? What dost thou work? Now in the book of (John 6:31); Jesus said unto them, our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. In the book of (John 6:32); Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. In the book of (John 6:33); Jesus said unto them, for the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. In the book of (John 6:34); Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. In the book of (John 6:35); Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. In the book of (John 6:36); But I said unto you, that ye also have seen me, and believe not. In the book of (John 6:37); all that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. In the book of (John 6:38); Jesus said unto them, for I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. In the book of (John 6:39); Jesus said unto them, and this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. In the book of (John 6:40); Jesus said unto them, and this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone which seeth the Son. And believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. In the book of (John 6:41); The Jews then murmured at him, because he said.
30) I am the bread which came down from heaven. In the book of (John 6:42); and they said, is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? In the book of (John 6:43); Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. In the book of (John 6:44); Jesus said unto them, no man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. In the book of (John 6:45); Jesus said unto them, it is written in the prophets, and they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. In the book of (John 6:46); Jesus said unto them, not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. In the book of (John 6:47); Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. In the book of (John 6:48); Jesus said unto them, I am that bread of life. In the book of (John 6:49); Jesus said unto them, your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. In the book of (John 6:50); Jesus said unto them, this is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. In the book of (John 6:51); Jesus said unto them, I am the living bread which came down from heaven: If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
31) Yes our Jesus is called the Vine and we are the Branches. In (John 15:1-8); Now in the book of (John 15:1); Jesus said that “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. In (John 15:1-2); Jesus said that, “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. In (John 15:1-3); Jesus said that, “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
In (John 15:1-4); Jesus said that, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. In (John 15:1-5); Jesus said that, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing. In (John 15:1-6); Jesus said that, “If anyone does not abide in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. In (John 15:1-7); Jesus said that “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. In (John 15:1-8); Jesus said that “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be my disciples.
32) Jesus is the only door to eternal life, open to all people who will place faith in Him.
33) Because Jesus has personal relationships with us as His followers, He knows us by name and attends to us.
34) As Jesus’ committed followers, we obey Him; we listen to His voice.
35) Because of our relationship with Jesus, let’s establish and nurture close relationships with all Christians.
36) Now we as Sheep trust and follow their shepherd. Ask God to help you more fully trust and follow Jesus, your Good Shepherd.
III) “What Does The Phrase “Born Again” Mean in The Bible?”
1) Now most people would say that’s when a woman gives birth to a new born baby here. But that is not what this phrase of “Born again” in the Bible means here. Now have you ever wondered what the phrase “born again” means? The Bible records that Jesus used the phrase in a conversation with a man named Nicodemus. Nicodemus approached Jesus at night and He was curious about Jesus and the kingdom of God. Then Jesus told him; “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom God” (John 3:3). Nicodemus responded, “How can a man be born when he is old?” (John 3:4).
2) Nicodemus was a highly moral man who obeyed God’s law. He was a respected leader of the Jewish community. No doubt he was a fine man. Yet something was lacking in his life. Well just Like Nicodemus, many people today are confused about religion with new birth in Jesus Christ. The Phrases like “I pray regularly” or “I believe there is a God” and often they are confused with a real new-birth experience.
3) New birth begins with the Holy Spirit convicting a person that the person is a sinner. Because of sin, we are spiritually dead. For this reason spiritual birth, as Jesus described it, is necessary. God loves us and gives us spiritual birth when we ask Him for it.
4) The Bible says all persons are sinners (Romans 3:23). Jesus died on a cross and was raised from the dead to save sinners. To be born again means that a person admits to God that he or she is a sinner, repents of Sin, believes in or trusts Christ, and confesses faith in Christ as Savior and Lord. Jesus told Nicodemus that everyone who believes in and places their faith in Jesus Christ would not perish (John 3:16). Jesus is the only one, and the only way that we can be save by Him because the Word of God says so in (John 14:6).
5) Now to believe in Jesus is to be born again. You must confess your sins and ask Jesus right now to save you. “And It shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).
6) After you have received Jesus Christ into your life as your personal Savior. Then share your decision with another person, and following Christ’s example, and ask the Pastor to baptize you by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith to God (Romans 6:4).
7) In closing this Bible Study about Jesus and is He the one and only true way Heaven. Then I can tell you the answer is a great big Yes. Always be prepared to tell anyone that you meet just how easy they can accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Now when you are witnessing to a friend or even a stranger be prepared to lead them through the Roman Road which is found in the Book of Romans of God’s Holy Word the Bible. Be sure to tell them that their reward is out of this world.
8) Always remember to pray for all the young ladies that have had a never forget to pray for all of your family and friends. And be sure to give our Lord Jesus Christ all the praise, the glory, and honor for any healing that you might receive from Him. We as Christians should never forget the price that (Jesus), had to pay for our sin on the Cross at Calvary.
A) Remember the Roman Road, on how can you accept our Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is always found at the bottom of each Bible Study Lesson. And all you have to do is read from the letters (A to E). Always remember it’s your part to believe that Jesus came to die on the Cross and shed His precious blood for the sins of the whole world. Then all of those who repent of their sins and call upon the name of Jesus. Then ask our Lord Jesus Christ to save you then you will have a home in Heaven with Jesus for all eternity. P. S. The Roman Road is just below; please read it and believe it because it is our Lord God’s Great Salvation’s Plan for all mankind.
B) Remember; if you are not saved our God has the power to save anyone that calls upon the name of Jesus Christ and repents of their sins. Now all that are lost need God’s power because we have a problem with sin. The Bible tells us that “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23).
C) Now you can find the way to Heaven in the book of (Romans 10:9). This scripture in the bible tells us that “If you confess with your mouth, that “Jesus is Lord,” and that you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
D) We all need to confess our sins and ask God for his forgiveness. When you confess Jesus Christ as your Lord, then this involves an agreeing with God about your sin and your need for Salvation. You must repent of your own personal sins, by doing this you are willing to turn away from the direction in life in which you are going.
E) Now to “believe in your heart” is to place your faith in Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior, also you are trusting that Jesus died on the Cross to pay for your sins. But our God proves His own love for us in that while we were sill sinners, Jesus Christ died for all of us. (Romans 5:8).
F) Remember, if you would like to have Salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ, you sincerely pray a prayer like this one; “Please God, I confess to you my sins and I need for you to save me right now. Then I will turn away from my sins and I place my faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord of my life forever. Amen.”
G) Remember when you become a successful leader, in your church, as a Christian, it will always linked to your character. You may fail over and over, but always remember that you will always find the grace in our Lord God to begin again. So don’t let your past sin and your failures define your character. Always go to God with your sins and repent of them.
H) Then you must turn from it, and accept God’s forgiveness, and get back to doing what our Lord God wants you to do. Always live in the forgiveness and Grace of God and start leading others to do the same. This means that we are to tell the Gospel or the Good News to everyone that we meet. Then if they respond and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, then they can tell the Good News to another person and that way we know that we are doing our part by spreading the Gospel in this world.
I) In closing this study about marriage, always remember to pray for all the young ladies that have had an abortion when they were young. And don’t forget to pray for all of your family and friends too. And be sure to give our Lord Jesus Christ all the praise, the glory, and honor for any healing that you might receive from Him. We as Christians should never forget the price that (Jesus), had to pay for our sin on the Cross at Calvary.
J) Note: Now this concludes the scriptures about the only way to Heaven. Please be much in prayer for me as I try to teach about other parts of the bible. Remember everything on this web-site is free. Why because I don’t believe in selling God’s Holy Word. Please pass then on to other people if they have helped you.
