The TRUTH 

Believing friend: There is a great attack against God and His Word. We can either fear men and be silent. Or, we can fear God and lovingly declare THE TRUTH of God's Word. If we hide the truth, we hide it from those who need to be rescued from their coming judgment in the fires of hell.
 
Unbelieving friend: For the sake of your eternal soul, you need to be aware of THE TRUTH. The truth alone can spare you from eternal regret and sorrow.
 
You can not receive salvation from Hell while holding onto your sin. Your sin must be recognised for what it is before you will ever look to Jesus to save you from it. Sin is not defined by mankind or man's law. You sin every time you break God's law. Many people today are lying to you about sin and saying it is not sin. But, God's law has not changed. Your works will still be judged by the law of God when you die and stand before Jesus Christ.
 
As uncomfortable as you may feel about letting God expose your sin, you must have courage and do it. Only God's light can dispell the darkness that is taking you to Hell. Jesus is the LIGHT you need. His Word, the Bible, will reveal your sin. You can ONLY be cleansed by putting your faith in Jesus death and resurrection. If you die in your sin, you will surely be separated from God for all of eternity. God crucified His Son in your place to pay the price from your sin. He loves you so much and desires to save you from your sin.
 
As long as you are alive there is hope of your salvation. The judgment against your sin will not take place until after you die. However, after you die it is TOO LATE for you to be saved. You do not know when you will enter into eternity. Today is the day you need to seek God because tomorrow may be too late.
 
You may think, "Why should I be different from the many people in this world who have rejected the truth of God's Word?" The answer is, "Because, the Son of God died for your salvation." You should chose the path of life no matter how few are on it.
Jesus loves you so much that to deliver you from Hell; He became a man. He preached righteousness. He demonstrated who He was by miracles, wonders, and signs. He obeyed the Father and allowed Himself to be crucified for your sin. He defeated death and the devil. He rose victoriously from the grave.
 
Your greatest need today is to put your faith in Jesus Christ. You do not need religion. You do not need christening or religious ceremony. You do not need good works. You do not need to understand all of the Bible. But, you must believe that Jesus loves you and that He died to save you from your sins. You must believe that He was victorious and rose from the dead.
 
You can not plead ignorance when you stand before God. If you stand at that judgment condemned; You are condemned for ignoring the voice of creation that shouts the truth that there is a God. You are condemned for refusing to search the Bible to find the truth about God. You are condemned for living a life against God and refusing to believe His truth which could have saved your soul. 
 
If you sincerely want to find God; You will obey His Word, repent of your sin and put your faith in Jesus Christ. If you truly have gotten saved; You will submit to God's instruction regarding believer's baptism by immersion as a testimony of what God has done in your life. You should unashamedly join a Bible believing church as a follower of Jesus Christ.
 
After your salvation, you will know the joy that comes from receiving God's pardon, having your heart cleansed, and your sins forgiven, recieving God's gift of everlasting life, receiving an eternal home in Heaven, receiving God's Holy Spirit into your heart, becoming a part of the family of God, and knowing for certain that when you die you will go to Heaven.
 
"The truth is what can save you. The truth is what can set you free from the bondage of your sin. The truth is what can change your life and your eternity. The truth is Jesus Christ."
 
If you are ready to believe THE TRUTH. We invite you to repent of your sin and by faith receive Jesus, who is THE TRUTH, into your heart and life.
An example of what to pray in faith to receive salvation:
"Dear Jesus, I am a sinner. I need you to save me from my sin. 
I confess that you died for my sin on the cross and that you rose from the dead. Please forgive me of my sin and save me right now. 
Thank you for SAVING me from my sin 
and for giving me your gift of everlasting life! In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."   

 

 

 

"THE TRUTH" flyer text with Bible verses

 

John 18:37  Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

 

Believing friend: There is a great attack against God and His Word.

Psalm 2:1-3  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

 

We can either fear men and be silent. Or, we can fear God and lovingly declare THE TRUTH of God's Word. 

Proverbs 29:25  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

 

If we hide the truth, we hide it from those who need to be rescued from their coming judgment in the fires of hell.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

 

Unbelieving friend: For the sake of your eternal soul, you need to be aware of THE TRUTH. 

John 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

The truth alone can spare you from eternal regret and sorrow.

2 Thesallonians 1:7-9  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

 

You can not receive salvation from Hell while holding onto your sin.

1 Kings 8:35-36  When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:  Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

 

Your sin must be recognised for what it is before you will ever look to Jesus to save you from it. Matthew 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Romans 6:23  For the wages (earnings) of sin is death;

 

 

Sin is not defined by mankind or man's law. You are sinning every time you break God's law.

1 John 3:4  Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 

James 2:10-11  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

 

 

Many people today are lying to you about sin and saying it is not sin. 

Jeremiah 29:9  For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

Proverbs 11:21  Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

Proverbs 16:5  Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

 

But, God's law has not changed. 

Psalm 119:89  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Matthew 5:17-18  (Jesus said) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

 

Your works will still be judged by the law of God when you die and stand before Jesus Christ.

Revelation 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

As uncomfortable as you may feel about letting God expose your sin, you must have courage and do it. 

John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 

Only God's light can dispell the darkness that is taking you to Hell. 

1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

 

Jesus is the LIGHT you need. 

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 

His Word, the Bible, will reveal your sin.

Galatians 3:24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

 

You can ONLY be cleansed by putting your faith in Jesus death and resurrection. 

Romans 10:9-10  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

If you die in your sin, you will surely be separated from God for all of eternity.

Matthew 25:41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

 

God crucified His Son in your place to pay the price from your sin. 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

He loves you so much and desires to save you from your sin.

2 Peter 3:9  The Lord... is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

 

As long as you are alive there is hope of your salvation.

Romans 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

The judgment against your sin will not take place until after you die

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

 

However, after you die it is TOO LATE for you to be saved. 

Luke 16:22-23 The rich man also died, and was buried;  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

 

You do not know when you will enter into eternity. 

Luke 12:20  But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

 

Today is the day you need to seek God because tomorrow may be too late.

2 Corinthians 6:2  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

 

You may think, "Why should I be different from the many people in this world who have rejected the truth of God's Word?"

Matthew 7:13-14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

The answer is, "Because, the Son of God died for your salvation." You should chose the path of life no matter how few are on it.

Matthew 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

Jesus loves you so much that to deliver you from Hell; He became a man. 

Philippians 2:5-8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

 

He preached righteousness.

John 7:7  The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

 

He demonstrated who He was by miracles, wonders, and signs. 

Luke 7:20-22  When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?  And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.  Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

 

He obeyed the Father and allowed Himself to be crucified for your sin

Isaiah 53:10  Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

 

He defeated death and the devil. 

1 Corinthians 15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

 

He rose victoriously from the grave.

Mark 16:6  And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

 

Your greatest need today is to put your faith in Jesus Christ. 

Acts 16:31  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

 

You do not need religion.

Galatians 2:16  Knowing that a man is not justified (declared righteous) by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

 

You do not need christening or religious ceremony. You do not need good works. You do not need to understand all of the Bible. 

(Jesus said) Luke 18:9-14  And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee (religious man), and the other a publican (thieving tax collector).  The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.  I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.  And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

 

But, you must believe that Jesus loves you and that He died to save you from your sins. You must believe that He was victorious and rose from the dead.

Romans 10:8-10  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

You can not plead ignorance when you stand before God. If you stand at that judgment condemned; You are condemned for ignoring the voice of creation that shouts the truth that there is a God.

Romans 1:19-20  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

 

 You are condemned for refusing to search the Bible to find the truth about God. 

Acts 17:11  These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

 

You are condemned for living a life against God and refusing to believe His truth which could have saved your soul. 

Hebrews 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

 

If you sincerely want to find God; You will obey His Word, repent of your sin and put your faith in Jesus Christ.

Acts 2:37-39  Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

 

If you truly have gotten saved; You will submit to God's instruction regarding believer's baptism by immersion as a testimony of what God has done in your life. 

Acts 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

 

You should unashamedly join a Bible believing church as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Acts 2:47 And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

 

After your salvation, you will know the joy that comes from receiving God's pardon, 

John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned (judged): but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

having your heart cleansed

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 

and your sins forgiven,

Psalm 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

 

recieving God's gift of everlasting life,

John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

 

receiving an eternal home in Heaven,

John 14:2  In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

 

receiving God's Holy Spirit into your heart,

1 Corinthians 6:19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

 

becoming a part of the family of God

John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

 

and knowing for certain that when you die you will go to Heaven.

1 John 5:13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

"The truth is what can save you. The truth is what can set you free from the bondage of your sin. The truth is what can change your life and your eternity. The truth is Jesus Christ."

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

If you are ready to believe THE TRUTH. We invite you to repent of your sin and by faith receive Jesus, who is THE TRUTH, into your heart and life.

Romans 10:9-10  That if thou shalt confess (to tell the truth) with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

An example of what to pray in faith to receive salvation:

Acts 8:37  And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

 

"Dear Jesus, I am a sinner." 

Romans 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

 

"I need you to save me from my sin." 

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

"I confess that you died for my sin on the cross and that you rose from the dead." 

Mark 16:6  And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

 

"Please forgive me of my sin and save me right now." 

Acts 16:30  And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32  And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33  And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

34  And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

 

"Thank you for SAVING me from my sin and for giving me your gift of everlasting life!"

Revelation 7:10  And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

 

"In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."   

John 14:13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
