HI… Just wanted to do a check up on the Medford people, and let them know the facts about GOD and going to heaven.. I know you maybe think you know everything about going to heaven.. But do you? are you sure?? Most people think they are going to see GOD in heaven for these listed reasons.. I’m a good person GOD won’t make me go to hell.. or I go to church once in a while, and belive in GOD so I am saved. These are things the Medford People Tell Me.. And I’m sad to say it, but These things will not get you to heaven.. No! not even standing up in front of Church and saying That you accept the LORD.. You Ask well then if you know so much what do you think I have to do?? I’m sorry if I come off to you like this.. I don’t think that I know every thing.. And I don’t want you feel bad.. I once didn’t know how to be saved either… And I don’t claim to be a know it all, because I don’t.. But this I know…… TO BE SAVED YOU MUST FIRST BELIEVE THAT THE WORD OF “GOD” IS TRUE… IF YOU KNOW IT IS TRUE YOU MUST READ THE WORD (the Bible). AND IF YOU READ IT YOU WILL FIND THAT IN THE BIBLE YOU WILL FIND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BE SAVED. ONE OF THE SCRIPTURES YOU WILL FIND IS IN ACTS.. I will give you some history on ACTS. It is the same as its name ACTS it was the acts of the apostles.. meaning simply what they did after the crucifiction of JESUS, and ended after the writer Luke was killed. any way back to the facts of salvation..
Trusting the apostles of JESUS CHRIST we go to the book ot acts to see what it was that they did… ACTS 2:38-39 says “Then Peter said unto them, repent, and be baptized ever 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.” kjv. I BELIEVE THIS TO BE ONE OF THE KEYS TO SALVATION.. IF YOU WERE TO READ A COUPLE OF VERSES AHEAD OF THIS YOU WOULD FIND THAT THESE PEOPLE WERE ALREADY BELIEVERS.. AND WERE IF YOU WOULD READ THE GOSPELS WOULD FIND THAT THEY HAD BE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST.. BUT THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH… NOW THEY NEW WHO “JESUS” WAS AND HAD TO BE BAPTISED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, REPENTED OF THEIR SINS, AND RECIEVED THE HOLY GOST (ALL THROUGH THE BOOK OF ACTS YOU WILL FIND THAT THE RECEIVING OF THE HOLY GHOST WAS KNOW BY THE EVIDENCE OF SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES..
check back!! I will answer your questions..
Take care, and read your bible..
