Hi! Once again! This is Pastor and Evangelist Dan L. Keen of Dan L. Keen ministries and I would like to take the opportunity to do the work as an Evangelist on this page making full proof of this ministry as the Word of God states in 2nd Timothy 4:5
First of all my friend I want to take this great opportunity for you and I to explore what the Bible says about the Salvation of our souls, both mine and yours because, no one is exempt from being saved lest they themselves choose to do so.
I want to ask you the most important question of your life. ARE YOU SAVED ? Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity may depend upon your answer. It's not a question of how good you are or whether or not you are a Church member, but , ARE YOU SAVED?
In John Chapter 3:7 after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was approached by a leader of the sanhedrien court or the judicial branch of the Church of that day Jesus said to Nicodemus " Ye must be born again.This was a leader in the Church. King David, a man after God's own heart said one day he would make it in by the skin of his teeth. What chance do you have without Jesus and what He did at the Cross. NONE!!
I would like to take you down what we call the Roman's road to Victory in Christ Jesus. He did it all for you but there are some things you have to do to obtain this great gift.
The first part of God's simple plan of Salvation is you must realize you are a sinner.
According to Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
Secondly, You are a sinner in need of a Saviour and Jesus is that only Saviour according to John's Gospel Chapter 4 and 6.
In Romans 6:23 For the wages (or payment of sin is death, this includes eternal separation from God.
There is a judgement spoken of in Heb, 9:27.
It is appointed unto men once to die and then the Judgement. But God loved you so much that He gave His only begotton Son. John3:16 as well as the following verse of scripture.
2nd Corinthians 5:21 He hath made Him Jesus who knew no sin, to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Romans 5:8 God commendeth His Love toward us that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Many people today look to the things of this world and the riches thereof. Here is what Jesus said about these thing.
In Mark 8:36-37, For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul. 37. Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul. I have never talked to anyone on their death bed that was an alcoholic who desired one more drink or a workaholic who desired one more hour of overtime or one with a gluttonous spirit who wanted that one last piece of pie.
God's power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life.
In 1st Corinthians 10:13 " There hath no temptation taken you but such is as common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;but will with the temptationalso make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Another thing we have to do as a sinner when we come to Jesus and He forgives us our sins is to repent.
But God commandeth all men every where to repent. Acts 17:30 and in John 8:11 Sometimes we are condemned in an unrepentive state and rightly so by the Church as well as the Word of God. Jesus said to the woman caught in the very act of adultery when her accusers where gone and no one was there to condemn her. He told her neither do I condemn thee, Go and sin no more, in other words repent.
Here is how simple it is to become saved. Read the story of the Phillipian Jailer in Acts 16.
He ask Paul and Silas in the middle of a crisis in his life "Sirs what must I do to be saved "?
And they said," Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died on the cross in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Saviour.
In John 1:12 As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
In Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall believe upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.
Surely you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
In Luke Chapter 18:13 the sinner prayed God be merciful to me a sinner.
Just pray, Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the cross of calvary. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection was for me. I now receive Him as my Saviour. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation, and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace.
Just take God at His Word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No Church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember God does the saving. All of it.Do not trust your feelings, they change,Stand on God's promises, they never change.After you are saved there are three things you must do to further you growth in this new life. I call it the miracle grow of your spiritural life. You can't run down to Wal-mart and pick it up. It comes from the desire inside of you.
#1 PRAY, you talk to God.
#2 Read your Bible, God talks to you.
#3 Witness You talk for God.
Then you should be baptized in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ as a public testimony of your salvation, and then unite yourself with a Bible believing Church without delay. I have Bible for that: 2nd Timothy 1:8 Be not therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord. Here is more, Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess (testify of me) before men, him will I also confess before My Father which is in Heaven.
Let me be the first to welcome you to the family of God and hopefully to our Church family.
