'Telling the Story of Jesus'-Second Coming Soul-Winning

'Telling the Story of Jesus'
Second Coming Soul-winning

     Did you know the Return of JESUS to EARTH is on the very door-step of TIME?...yes, JESUS is COMING AGAIN, and it is HIS RETURN to earth that will begin the END OF THE WORLD as we now know it! Jesus came the FIRST time to DIE for the SINS of the whole world, and He is COMING AGAIN to RAPTURE His people from this planet which is increasingly becoming filled with war and violence, earthquakes, famines, human tragedy, fears of the future and what it holds for mankind.

     We are RIGHT NOW witnessing the fulfillment of the events Jesus said would occur before His Return. In recent years many false Christs/religions have developed bringing with them false doctrines which focus on the Person of Christ. The Jehovah (false) Witnesses, the Mormons, the Seventh Day Adventists and the Christian Science movement all have arisen during this time. This is exactly what Jesus said would happen before He returned to earth: “For many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall deceive many.” (Matthew 24:5)

     Famines have become increasingly prevalent in many third world countries, over 40 countries in recent years have claimed famine in their land. The pestilences of AIDS, Ebola virus, SARS, Swine Flu and the West Nile virus are on the increase. Earthquakes also abound worldwide and are definitely increasing in number and intensity as we rapidly move toward the End of the World and the Coming of Christ. Statistics show over a ten-fold increase in major earthquakes worldwide in the last 40 years!

     These are great concerns to the majority of thinking people today as we have just entered the new MILLENNIUM, and the concern is justified...unless you know the God who CONTROLS the UNIVERSE, the God who is capable of giving PEACE even in the midst of all this turmoil. The PEACE God gives comes from knowing that He is in CONTROL, and yes, JESUS is COMING AGAIN and His desire is to bring that PEACE into every heart that will receive Him as their Savior. When JESUS rescues His own,God will begin a time of great, fiery JUDGMENT upon those who REMAIN. It will be like nothing that ever occurred before in the history of the world!

     But, just before His Coming, the SUN and MOON will be darkened the STARS will fall from heaven, FIRE and BRIMSTONE like the FIRE and BRIMSTONE which fell on Sodom and Gomorrah will bring devastating and catastrophic  DESTRUCTION worldwide as God brings to an end the world as we know it and the climax of it all will be the horrendous battle of ARMAGEDDON!  If you are not a believer, if you've never been born again into the family of God, you will be left behind to face this horrendous JUDGMENT of God upon this earth!

     Even though Jesus is in heaven now, He has made a way for you to be saved through His Spirit Whom He sent, if you will just BELIEVE on Him and REPENT of your sin, and pray and RECEIVE Him as your Savior. His Spirit is working right now even as you read about these important things concerning your future and ETERNAL DESTINY!

     You see, God SENT this message so that He could talk to you today by His Spirit...JESUS SAID to His disciples the night before the He went to the Cross when I go away I will SEND the Holy Spirit to you'.  He SENT His Spirit to live in the hearts of His people and He is here right now! He can live in you, He will give you NEW LIFE, the EVERLASTING LIFE OF JESUS OUR GOD!

     The Holy Spirit of Jesus is here to convict people of their SIN, and to convince them of their need for RIGHTEOUSNESS, and remind them of the COMING JUDGMENT DAY!  Would you like to RECEIVE the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior from SIN? Jesus ALONE has the POWER to save you from the PENALTY of your SIN.

     Yes, He alone can give you the RIGHTEOUSNESS you need to enter into heaven with God and He alone can save you from the fierce and fiery JUDGMENT that is COMING upon those who will not BELIEVE and RECEIVE Him as Savior! Yes, ONLY JESUS can SAVE you from the Eternal Torment of HELL which you will experience if you REJECT His MESSAGE from the BIBLE and REFUSE to RECEIVE Him as your Savior!

     The first step is to REALIZE you are sinner in need of a Savior and that ONLY Jesus can save you. Then, REPENTANCE, which is the willingness to turn from your sinful way and turn to Jesus RELYING on Him alone, and RECEIVE the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart by FAITH. You can pray and ask Him to come in and give you NEW LIFE as His Eternal Gift to you! It is that simple, so please, PRAY right now and ask JESUS to SAVE you from your sin and He will keep His promise because He is coming soon!.'For whosoever shall CALL upon the Name of the Lord shall be SAVED'.
