IS JESUS "A" WAY TO HEAVEN, OR "THE" WAY?
(By: Norm Rasmussen)
The very nature of the question: Is Jesus "A" way to heaven, or "THE" way? ...is smoke and mirrors' ...a question designed to keep a person from asking the MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION!
Is Jesus the "ONLY" way to have my sins against God forgiven, so they won't be held against me on the Judgment Day, or just 'A' way?
On the Judgment Day, when we each will give an account to God THE Creator and Judge of all of what we did while on earth, (which Hebrews 9:27 and 2 Corinthians 5:10 assures us we each will do), we'll clearly realize the issue at hand that will determine our eternity. The issue at hand will be our SIN.
Sins of rebellion against His righteous commandments we committed against God while we were on earth, and did we reach out and treasure God's gift of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ before dying, or refuse to accept His FREE forgiveness 'free pardon' for them and instead enter eternity taking our chances of what God will do about them?
Through so much slick demonic deception around this planet, so many people have the 'warm-fuzzy' thought in their mind that 'heaven' is the 'wonderful place' we all go to once we die, simply because the "God" we want judging us would want it that way. Problem IS, the New Testament Bible doesn't say any such thing of the kind! The New Testament Bible clearly communicates to us that sin MUST and WILL be punished.
Which of course is why Satan wants New Testament Bibles eradicated from the face of the earth! If he can't eradicate them, then he'll settle for the masses not to TRUST the New Testament Bible to different degrees. DOUBT is his weapon of choice to help bring that about.
The reason most people do not want to hear about TRUTHFUL New Testament Bible Christianity is that they don't want to believe they are sinners against an all-holy God, and that He will hold them accountable for their sins on the Judgment Day. And rather than give the matter more than a split second thought, demons implant the decoy thought into our brains, 'Let's debate about the different ways to get to heaven where there won't BE a Judgment Day, what say?'
I hope those reading this can grasp Satan's tactic in all this. Satan wants the masses believing that the 'heaven' they'll be going to after they die won't INCLUDE a Judgment Day. It will be a heaven where judgment for sin will be a total non-issue.
Anything Satan can come up with to get mankind to have no fear nor concern about what God thinks about their sins against Him and others is what drives Satan. WHY? Because if he can't be forgiven for his rebellion (sin) against God, which will never happen, then why should anyone else have it?
Selfishness, anger and revenge thinks that way, doesn't it? If I can't have what I want, I don't want anyone else getting it EITHER!
Misery truly loves company, and there will be plenty of it in the place departed souls will spend eternity paying for their sins because they refused to reach out and receive forgiveness for their sins prior to dying because of what Jesus Christ accomplished for them on the cross.
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die?

Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU SHARE THE BEST NEWS GOD HAS FOR EVERY PERSON BECAUSE...
JESUS DID IT! and...
Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance)
