Pastor Tim Henderson says it a lot better than I can! What if bible prophecy written thousands of years ago really IS coming true on a daily basis? What if the signs of the end of days are all around us, but we don’t notice or don’t understand – and then, suddenly, it’s too late and all hell breaks loose…?
2 Peter 3:9 NIV
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
[From Wikipedia: Metanoia, a transliteration of the Greek μετάνοια, is “a transformative change of heart; especially: a spiritual conversion.” The term suggests repudiation, change of mind, repentance, and atonement; but “conversion” and “reformation” may best approximate its connotation. In The King James Version of the Bible, its verbal cognate metanoeo/μετανοέω is translated as repent.]
If you’ve heard about Jesus, but never considered who he really is and that he came to rescue you – or you have rejected the gospel as a work of fiction or think it’s irrelevant in today’s world… CHANGE YOUR MIND! His name in Hebrew is Yeshua – it means Salvation.
You do not need to be a perfect person – not even a good person! Goodness will not save you. Being kind, caring, generous, loving, honest or hard-working will not save you.
Nothing that you can ever be or do will save you!
Romans 3:23-24 NIV
…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Come as you are – no one is beyond being saved. ALL you have to do is believe on Jesus! Change your mind – and change your eternal future!
Faith + nothing else = salvation
… because Jesus died on the cross of Calvary but now he LIVES and sits at the right hand of the Father – and he intercedes for YOU!
Hebrews 7:25 NIV
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
