Jesus said, “In fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.” (John 16:2-3)
Islam teaches that by killing infidels (nonMuslims) and apostates (former Muslims who have turned against Islam), Muslims are rewarded security of salvation by their false god, Allah. According to their Qur’an, this is called Jihad. What they do not understand is that the real God, Yahweh, is love (1 John 4:8). Yet, He is also a holy just God and must impart righteous judgment. And the punishment for sin is death (Romans 6:23), so He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us, taking on the penalty we deserve.
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13) And this is just what Jesus did for us because He loves us so much.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
– Only One Way to Heaven
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
– How to Be Forgiven
* Believe that Jesus died for your sins
“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.” (John 3:36)
* Confess your sins & Repent
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
“The Lord is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” (Acts 3:19)
“Repent” means to turn from your sin and turn toward God, having a hearty amendment to do good deeds.
Thank You, Jesus, for paying the penalty for my sins, suffering pain unto death for what I deserve. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to do good. I repent. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Draw me closer to You dear Lord Jesus and help me to do what is pleasing in Your sight. Thank You, Lord.
