I can’t be used to obtain the savior and heaven.
Here money itself has agreed, I can’t be used to obtain a savior and heaven. What then can I say?
Money is an article which may be used as a universal passport to everywhere except to obtain a savior and heaven – W.F. Kumuyi.
On a leaflet was written, do you know that you’ll outlive the sun? Do you know that when the earth and the stars have all passed away, you’ll just be beginning your endless day – a time without end? Once you are born you’ll never cease to leave. You’ll live forever; you’ll be alive eternally. Eternity has no end. This is solemn and fearful truth. Suppose it were possible to tie a rope from the earth to heaven and an ant were to go to the end and return on this rope, when the ant has done that a hundred times, then a small fraction of eternity has passed. Suppose a small boy were to empty an ocean with a cup, the time it will take the boy to do so is a very tiny part of eternity. If it were possible to gather all the books that have ever been written in all fields of human Endeavour and in all languages, and a student were to read them one by one, the time he’ll spend reading all the books will only amount to a minute fraction of eternity. If a grain of sand at the seashore will represent a year only a small negligible part of eternity will all amount to. If a bird went to sharpen its beak once a year at a mountain, when the bird wears the mountain in this way, only an insignificant part of eternity would have passed. Eternity is the life- time of the never- dying God. And you’ll be alive eternally. Once born, a person remains consciously alive forever.
Eternity doesn’t terminate at the time of death. Death is just another wrung on the ladder of eternity. It’s only a gateway to eternity- eternity in heaven or in hell. There is the resurrection of life and there is the resurrection of damnation. There is no neutral place. These are stark realities you must face.
Choose you this day. Where do you want to spend eternity? You can only answer with an action.
Eternity in hell is sure for every sinner who refuses to repent. Choose you this day. Where’ll you spend eternity? With God in heaven? Then you must repent now. He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. – Proverbs 28:13.
Confession (salvation pill)
Place your right hand on your navel, close your eyes and imagine Jesus Christ standing before you.
Prayer of salvation
Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for saving me. I believe you died for my sake. I surrender all to you. Purify, sanctify and justify me. Erase the consequences of my sins. Make me rapture able. Write my name in the book of life. Have mercy upon me and let your grace continually abide with me. Amen.
Wow!!! You have just signed into the resurrection of life. See how the hosts of angels are jubilating for you.
From now on:
But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.
You shall prosper
…And he (you) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his (your) fruit in his season, his leaves shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper… Psalm 1:1-3
Now therefore fear the lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods your fathers served… Joshua 24:14.
…as for me and my house (family), we will serve the LORD…Joshua 24:15-16
