God and His word are the same.

Hands touching a white cross.

The first verses of the bible say; “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1v1) this was the beginning of creation, but it wasn’t the beginning of God, He is outside of time and space, He dwells in eternity. Before God created the heavens and the earth, only the spiritual realm existed, this physical world we live in was created.

How was this physical world created, you may ask, and the answer is, by God’s words, when God said, “Let there be light” His words, slung this universe into existence from the image that was inside God. Those words of creation were filled with God’s faith, He and His words are the same.

So there is a common denominator between the world of the spirit and the natural world. When God created man, He created him to be like Himself, and that is to be a living speaking spirit with the ability to create with words. Isn’t that incredible, God’s plan is for us to create with our words, just like He creates with His words.

The book of Genesis also tells us how man gave away his ability to speak things into being, Adam bowed his need to a spiritual outlaw, satan and this broke the connection between heaven and earth. There was now no one who could connect back to heaven, the Word that linked heaven and earth was broken, and therefore the communication between God and man was also broken.

God didn’t abandon us; He puts into motion His plan of redemption, which he had in mind even before He created the world. Forty-two generations later, God’s words came to pass, His word became flesh in Jesus, who came to restore God original plan for man. In John 15:7 Jesus said, “If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you”. How is this possible? You might ask, it’s because the connection between heaven and earth is restored through Jesus.

God’s plan would annihilate the devil’s grip of the law of sin and death on mankind and restore man into his rightful relationship and fellowship with his Father God.

God sent Jesus, who is “the Word” the same power tool with which He created the universe. When you receive Jesus, you become a son or daughter of God, just like Adam originally had, reconnected to your father by Jesus, the WORD.

When a person chooses to receive Jesus as Lord of their life, the bible says, they become a brand new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Being born again in the image of God is the choice that replaces the sin nature, with God’s nature. This decision assures us that we will spend eternity in heaven with Him.

It is not God’s will for anyone to spend eternity separated from Him, but this will only happen as a result of peoples own free will, by refusing to accept what Jesus has done.

First — It’s important to realize that there is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus Christ, the Lord, and Savior of the world (John 14:6). The Word of God says if you believe with your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confess Jesus as your Lord, you will be saved (Romans 10:9–10).

Salvation is not something we deserve, nor is it something we can earn. It is a gift that was purchased and paid for by the blood of Jesus. Through the cross, God laid the punishment for our sin on Jesus so that we might have right-standing with God through faith in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Jesus was our substitute. He took the pain, penalty, and punishment for our sin so that God could freely offer us salvation from our sin (Isaiah 53:3–5). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Where will I spend eternity? This is a great question to ask yourself.

Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that he has a wonderful plan for your life? If you were to die this very second, do you know for sure beyond the shadow of a doubt that you would go to heaven?

Let’s quickly look at what the Bible says about this very important subject?
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God… and the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord… and whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you would like to receive the gift that God has for you today, say this prayer with your heart out loud…

“Dear Jesus come into my heart, forgive me of my sin, set me free, Jesus thank you that you died for me and that your blood was shed for me. I believe that God raised you from the dead, thank you that you’re coming back again for me, fill me with the Holy Spirit. I’m saved, I’m born again, I’m forgiven, I’m on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart”.

This is good news: when you asked Jesus to come into your heart and to forgive you, he heard you, so I tell you today that all of your sins are forgiven and you are saved. Always remember to run to God, not from God, because he loves you and has a great plan for your life.

You can now say; “I am now reborn! I am a Christian, a child of Almighty God! I am saved!”

Thank you,
