What a strange title! The fact is, we are ALL going somewhere when we die. There are only two places. (No, we are NOT Jehovah’s Witnesses, so please read on). No matter what nationality we are, or what religion we believe, or what church we may or may not attend, we are ALL going to one of two places when we die, either to Heaven or to Hell.
There is only ONE true God, the Creator of all things, and of mankind. He has created you, and created each one of us. We have a time to live and a time to die: It is ordained by Him for each individual.
The truth is only found in the Bible, the Holy Bible, the word of God, which has been given us and which we ignore at our peril. Jesus Christ Himself is the Word of God. He is the only Saviour, the only true God, the only Redeemer and Lord of Glory.
The whole of mankind is steeped in sin, inherited sin from the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, so however good we think we are, we are born in sin. We cannot earn our way to Heaven and no good works can get us there, for all we do is sin, however much we may help our neighbour, or think we are good people. We may not have broken man’s law, but we have all certainly broken God’s Holy laws, for none of us can keep them.
So what is the answer?
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31).
‘But,’ many would say ‘yes, I believe’ - but it is a nominal belief in the historical facts that Christ died on the cross, was in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights, and arose from the grave and is seated in the Heavens now. The truth is that Jesus said:
“I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” (John 14:6).
It is God the Father who draws, God the Son redeems, and God the Holy Spirit regenerates. It must be a new birth, which is a miracle of grace.
God has a people whom the Lord Jesus Christ died for on the Cross, and those people will be drawn by the Father to the Son. They will find that they are brought to see their sin and repent of it, with no excuses. They will see they are so sinful, that the only remedy is to be brought to Christ, the Saviour and Redeemer. They will often be brought to the utter end of self, and cry out for mercy to the only wise God and Jesus Christ, their Saviour. No mere religion will do - it has to be to the One and only Saviour. There is no other.
So, whoever reads this tract, if the Lord is calling you, you will feel yourself so stirred that you will see your sin as it really is - an offence against God - and repent, and this will change your life for ever, for only God can forgive sin. You will have to give up your life and follow Christ as His disciple. You will want to give God all the glory for saving you, for it will be a reality.
“You will know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).
In this there is absolutely nothing man can do! No Vicar, Priest, or man can save you – only Christ. No Church can save you. Only Christ alone.
Please take heed to these words, for they are scriptural, from the Bible*. There is a glorious Heaven waiting for you, with Christ. Without Christ, you are heading for Hell. Not because you are worse than anyone else, but because you are without excuse, for creation shows you God the Almighty, the Creator, and He has given His only Son to die in place of His people. SO WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
“Who hath saved us and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.” (2 Timothy 1:9)
