The whole scenario of the last days is frightening to those who are not saved. Even more scary is spending eternity in hell. The great benefit to the born again Christian, is that you are looking forward to the presence of Jesus Christ in heaven, and you art not at all afraid of what will one day come upon the earth, described graphically in Revelation 6-18. The born again Christian will be exempt from the great end times judgments and wrath of God that will be poured out upon the world. [Please refer to several articles on the Rapture Of The Church, One World Order and the Great Tribulation on this blog site under the category called: “Eschatology (End Times Prophecy).” Keep striking “Older Posts” at the end of each page until you find them.] One must be saved from their sins in order to become a Christian. How does one do this? They repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for salvation. Only our faith in the Righteous One can make us righteous in God’s sight. Please read II Corinthians 5:21. Jesus died for all of your sins as if He committed them. Other scriptures that are excellent for understanding salvation are : II Corinthians 5:17; John 3: 3, 16, 36; Romans 3: 10, 23; 5: 8, 12; 6: 23; 10: 9-10 (The Roman Road To Salvation); and Ephesians 2: 8-9. Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, died for our sins. His perfect sinless life is accepted by God as an atonement (covering) for our sins, and incredibly, Jesus’ righteousness is imputed to believers as our own! We are saved simply by placing our faith in Jesus Christ and the blood He shed for us. When we truly become saved, we repent from sin and are forever led by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins. God gives us a new heart. (II Corinthians 5:17) If you have experienced the new birth (John 3:3), then you need not fear the Great Tribulation or hell because you are His child. People love and care for their children, how much more does the Heavenly Father and His Son care for those He has saved! If you are not born from above, you should indeed shake in your shoes at the soon to come Great Tribulation; yet you should fear even more so His eternal judgment whereby the unbeliever will be cast into hell forever with no second chance for escape or redemption. Wise men still seek Him. Seek the Lord Jesus Christ while He may be found and before it is too late. Questions? I would consider it a privilege to try to answer them. Leave a comment at this article. This blog site has nearly four hundred articles up to this date, yet none could be more important than the one you are now reading. Maranatha. Make sure of your salvation. Do not leave this life without it.
