"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". (John 1:1) Then jumping down to (vrs.14) "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth". Do you realize that God "knew" you and emphatically "loved" you before the foundations of the world? (Ephes.1:4). Simplified... God created everything, Lucifer (one of God's Arc- Angels) decided he wanted to over throw God, God banished him and the name that was given to him from heaven
(Luke 10:18), Satan (his new name... meaning adversary and deceiver) destroyed the earth God created, God then spoke all the beauty in the earth into existence, created man and woman and gave THEM dominion over the earth (Gen.1:27-28). Mankind was deceived and disobeyed God causing eternal separation from their Creator, sin-tainted mankind could not stand in the presence of a perfect Holy God, therefore the Creator loving His creation so much established a plan of redemption, the need for a Savior... (INSTALL JESUS)! (John 3:16)
Folks... He has always been there, from the very beginning till now and on into eternity. Whether you believe in an after life or not one way or another we're all going to find out. There isn't any amount of good deeds you can do on this earth that will secure your place in eternity, the "sin issue" has been dealt with, Jesus paid the price that we could never pay ONCE AND FOR ALL! The only thing that will keep you out of heaven is your refusal and rejection of the free gift that God the Father offered "ALL" of mankind through His Son Jesus Christ. Why live in self pity... come to Him, why live in questionable doubt... come to Him, why live with anger, pain and sorrow... come to Him. Before Christ we merely existed but to accept Him and His love for you we can live a life of love, joy, peace, faith, gentleness, kindness, meekness, patience and self control. (Gal.5:22-23)
Start your journey today with Him... He will never disappoint you. The bible says in the book of Romans chapter 10 verses 9-10, "That if you shalt confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shalt be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation". Only two things you require... a mouth that speaks and a heart that believes. God's Love and Grace will do the rest!
Here you are.
