How do you feel right
now? Are you happy or are you feeling sad? What has life been
like for you, do you wish you could be happier? Bless your heart!
I know sometimes you hurt and cry but I have an answer for you. You
can find happiness in spite of your problems.
Job 8:21He will yet fill your mouth
with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy!
YOU 'CAN' HAVE VICTORY!
Two thousand years ago
a baby was born in a lowly manger in Bethlehem of Judea. He was not born
in a castle like a rich king yet He was the richest person that ever lived.
He was not born with rich possessions, yet He possessed the greatest love
the world has ever known. Jesus Christ, the son of God came to give
you the richest gift of all His "Salvation!"
Being the Son of God,
Jesus was born "without sin!" Surely the greatest love we have ever known
came into our lives that fateful day. Jesus did not seek worldly
riches but He came to "bring" you the richest gift of all, Salvation!
You see you do not have to be rich to have great value and worth.
Richness is a state of spiritual being, NOT how many possessions that you
may own. For all the earth's wealth will NOT get you into Heaven,
Repenting for your sins and asking Jesus Christ to come into your heart,
Luke 2:1,4-7 And it came to pass in
those days, there went out a decree from Caesar Augusius, that all the
world should be taxed. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the
city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called
Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To
be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it
was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should
be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him
in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room
for them in the inn.
DO YOU KNOW HOW SIN GOT STARTED?
From the beginning God
created the world and a beautiful Garden He called Eden. He created
the animals and placed two people named Adam and Eve to care for it.
God said, "Eat whatever you like in the Garden but not of the Tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, for if you eat of it you will surly die." Soon
Satan the devil came and deceived them into disobeying God when they ate
from the forbidden fruit. His law was broken; sin had come into the
world! God had to cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden to punish them
for their sins. So now all people would
suffer from sin unless they could be saved.
So, God sent His very own son Jesus Christ to pay the price for our sins
because He loves us!
CHRIST HAS A "FREE GIFT"
Satan the devil tempts
us to sin and disobey our Father God. The devil makes us focus on
our problems rather than God's positive answers for our lives. Jesus Christ
came to mend our hurting hearts. He came for you and me!
He brought a way to save us from our sins. He brought the love and
hope of Heaven through His "Free
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
JESUS HEALS BROKENHEARTS!
During His earthly ministry
Jesus strived to reach out to everyone who had need. People were
drawn to hear Him speak words of love and Biblical truths.
SIN CAUSES PAIN AND SORROWS!
Religious leaders became
jealous of Jesus because of their sins. They did not want to give
up power or control over the people and were hypocritical in their actions.
They were so full of sinful jealousy that they hated the love and hope
people found in Jesus Christ. He came to heal their sins and
broken hearts too! So the Religious leaders captured Jesus and turned
Him over to a Roman governor named Pontius Pilot.
Matt. 14:14 And Jesus went forth, and
saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he
healed their sick.
Matt. 11:5 The blind receive their sight,
and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead
are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
Matt. 9:35 And Jesus went about all
of the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching
the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease
among the people.
JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR SIN
Soldiers laughed as they
brutally beat Jesus with whips who's tips were metal. They placed
a sharp crown of thorns upon His poor head to humiliate Him. Jesus
was so badly bruised and swollen from the beatings that people could no
longer recognize Him. He was led through the city streets in
total humiliation and disgrace to be crucified. Soldiers nailed His
hands and feet to a wooden cross while people mochingly jeered at Him to
save Himself. Soon the sky turned dark when death finally came and
The rains came and a
dark sadness spread across the land. Sadly Jesus' mother watched with tears
of great sorrow, as they took Her son's lifeless body down from the Cross
to be sealed Him in a cold, dark tomb. Sin had been brought into
the world by the devil in the Garden of Eden and a price had to be paid
to redeem us from our sins. Jesus paid the price. Not one of us is
worthy of such a thing. The Savior of the world had paid the terrible
price for "our" sins so that we might be saved.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth His love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Being the Son of God,
Jesus Christ could have stopped this terrible ordeal by calling down a
whole legion of Angels for protection, but He did not, why? Jesus
knew our sins had to be paid and He paid the price so we might be saved.
JESUS HAD VICTORY OVER DEATH!
Three days later a miracle
happened, Jesus arose "ALIVE" from the grave. Praise the Lord! He
conquered death! He paid the price for our sins and now sits with
God in Heaven. Soon He will come back again to take believers
to Heaven. Jesus Christ came to save us because He loves us!
Isaiah 53:4-6 Surely he hath borne our
griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten
of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions.
How can you find happiness
and peace of spirit when you hurt? The answer is simple, Jesus Christ came
to "Heal the Broken hearted." He came to heal your hurts and to give
you victory over sin.
John 3:16-17 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. For God sent not his Son into
the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be
HEAVEN OR HELL WHEN YOU DIE?
In "HEAVEN" believers
will find LOVE, JOY, PEACE, and more HAPPINESS than they could ever imagine.
Beautiful Angels are there and the loving light of God will shine brightly.
Pure love and joy! NO sin, NO sorrow, NO sadness, NO more sickness...Only
complete happiness and real love for "all" eternity! What more could
In "Hell" sinners will find
pain, suffering, sorrow, sickness, agony, tears, hatred, unforgiveness,
bad thoughts, depression, negative feelings and total blackness (NO light!)
Demons will be there! Satan is going to be in Hell with all of his demons,
and believe me they hate you! Imagine looking into the eyes of pure
'evil and hate' for ALL eternity? A VERY SCARY THOUGHT! All
those who do not repent of their sins and ask Jesus to save them, will
be in Hell forever! Pain and suffering for all eternity! Think
about it, the choice is yours! Where will you go when you die, Heaven
HOW CAN YOU BE SAVED?"
you have sinned and admit that you need Jesus to save you! Every one of
us has sinned and we need to admit it, we can not hide it or run away from
that very serious hard fact; we have sin in our lives and need to repent.
HOW CAN YOU BE FORGIVEN?
Repent of your sins!
We all have sinned, not one of us is innocent of sin. Jesus came
to heal our broken hearts by giving us a way to be forgiven for our sins.
He brought us Salvation! God wants repentance for our sins.
He wants us to sincerely be sorry for them. He does NOT want us to
use fakery but in sincerity ask for forgiveness. Anyone can apologize
for something they did by saying words only, but a true repentant heart
is broken, sorry and surrendered with humility. True repentance allows
the working of the Holy Spirit to change hearts and attitudes.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and
come short of the glory of God;
Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed
evil thoughts, murders, adulteries fornications, thefts, false witness,
Your attitude changes to one of humble love.
God will faithfully forgive you of your sins and bring healing to your
broken heartedness. When you repent and ask Jesus to come into your
life you begin to find real happiness and joyful peace!
CAN YOUR BROKEN HEART BE HEALED?
Jesus did not come as
a rich ruler to win power and man's applause but men's hearts with "His
love." He came to "heal YOUR broken heart." Why, because He
truly loves you! He proved that He had the power over the grave and
that we can have eternal life with Him in Heaven. How loving our
Lord is and how wonderful that He looks past our sins. He loves us
in spite of everything we could have ever done. You CAN be happy!
You CAN have victory over the sadness of life and you CAN have healing
for your broken heart through the Salvation of Jesus Christ who dearly
loves us, you CAN be saved and healed!
Jesus Christ came
for the poor in spirit and the brokenhearted. Yes, He came for you
and me! No one knows how long they have to live but you CAN know
for sure where your soul will go when you die. Repent of your sins
and ask Jesus Christ to be your savior today!
"THE SALVATION PRAYER"
Heavenly Father, I love
you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sins.
I never knew I could be loved like this and I am so sorry for the sins
that I have done in my life. I believe that your son Jesus loves
me and that I am special to you. I believe that Jesus Christ died
on the cross for my sins, my very own sins.
Lord, I humbly ask
Jesus to come into my heart, forgive me and wash away all of my sins.
I desire to have a close relationship with you Lord Jesus. I want
to know that I can live in Heaven with you when I die for all eternity.
Oh I love you Lord! Thank you for what you have done in my life to
save me from my sins. Heal all of my broken heartedness and give me the
joy that can only be found in you. I ask this in Jesus name who is
my Savior, Amen. Lord, I take great joy for now I know that
I am saved, I know that I will be in Heaven, Praise the Lord!
If you have said this
prayer than God's angels are happy and rejoicing in Heaven for you are
forgiven and saved. Praise the Lord! Jesus loves you so very,
very much! God bless your precious heart! Praise God! We encourage
you to attend a Christian Church and tell your friends about Jesus Christ.
