Want to be Saved?


Jesus Christ is the Son of God, meaning He is God manifested in the flesh. He is the only way to be saved (John 14:6).  God became a man, born of a virgin (Mary), lived a perfect and sinless life, and gave Himself willingly on the cross over 2000 years ago for our sins. This was prophesied of long before He was born:

• Isaiah 7:14
• Isaiah 9:6-7
• Isaiah 53
• Psalms 22

It is written that whosoever calls on His name shall be saved:

Acts 2:21 KJV — And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord (Jesus/Yeshua) shall be saved.

This prayer alone will not save you, but is a good first step. Please open your heart to the Father and say this prayer from your heart aloud:

"My Father who is in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, I know that you are the Everlasting Father the Creator of all things both in Heaven and in Earth. I have sinned against you and others and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to atone for my own sins or to work my way to heaven. At this moment, I understand that You were born as a man named Yeshua/Jesus, and I trust that Christ Jesus alone was the One who took my sin when He died on the cross (Isaiah 53). I believe that the blood of Jesus made a way for me to be in your Holy presence.

I thank you that Christ Jesus was raised from the dead on the third day as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and will turn away from my sins. I will forgive all those who have done evil to me, as my sins have done evil to Christ and others. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures.

Heavenly Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Lord and Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through deep valleys and lead me into paths of righteousness for your name's sake..

Heavenly Father, please send me the Holy Spirit and accept me under your blood covenant of grace. I know that you are the great I Am who was, is, and always will be, the Lord Almighty, and that you were in Christ Jesus to die for my sins. I know that all power and authority both in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I intend to follow the commandments of Christ as recorded in the Holy Bible, and to grow in faith and righteousness and understanding of You and your Holy ways. I understand that my old sinful life has died on the cross with Christ, and I will be a new creature in Christ to do Your will on earth. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

It is by accepting God's grace through trusting and obeying the gospel of Jesus and declaring with your lips and believing in your heart that Jesus is the Lord whom God has raised up from the dead on the third day, that we may be saved. (Romans 10:9) Also, please be baptised in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by a group of Spirit filled believers if you are able as ordered by Jesus to His disciples:

Matthew 28:18-20 KJV — And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Jesus died to seal the New Covenant of grace through faith in Him as an atonement for our sins, yet we must put away the old sinful life and follow Him according to the scriptures. The Book of Hebrews outlines this New Covenant for us:

Hebrews 8:10-13 KJV — For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: [11] And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. [12] For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. [13] In that he saith, A new covenant , he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Salvation was not just meant for the Jews, but the Cross made away for anyone who will believe in Jesus:

John 3:16-21 KJV — 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. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [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. [20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. [21] But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Do not let Satan condemn you for past sins, the blood of Jesus has washed us clean but Satan will use people to condemn us into not believing in His grace and mercy. If we slip and sin again after being a Christian, it is not good but we have an advocate through Jesus Christ who interceeds for us to the Father.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one in three parts or persons (John 14). We can trust the Bible because it was written by men under the direction of the Holy Spirit:

2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV — All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

The New Testament is most applicable for the Christian, yet, all of the Bible is important. The Four Gospels are written about the life, death, and ressurection as well as the teachings of Jesus (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), and all vary in information but do not contradict each other. These teachings are applicable to the Christian of today.

The Book of Acts is written as a historical account of the founding Apostles and early Church. The Book of Psalms are applicable to every Christian and helps us understand God and prophecy to come.

The other books are Epistles (letters) to different churches at the time and mostly apply to us today. The Book of Revelation was written by Apostle John and contain Revelations for the end times, mostly the 7 year tribulation known as Jacob's Trouble or Daniel's 70th week. It also has information I regards to the Millineal Kingdom after the 7 year tribulation, and the Final Judgement at the End before New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven.

Also, it is good to recite the LORD's prayer in secret every day to help you understand and remember this covenant:

Matthew 6:9-13 KJV — After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [11] Give us this day our daily bread. [12] And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. [13] And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The LORD wants to have a personal relationship with you through the Holy Scriptures and His Holy Spirit that will dwell within you. His Spirit will be a guide, a Father, a comforter, and lead you into all truth.

Also, you may receive dreams and visions and even hear His voice (Acts 2:17).

He loves each of us and is not willing any will perish, and no one can pluck you from His hands but you must abide in Him and His words.
