 "Road To Heaven"

The Creator of all things:
God being a Spirit, and also known as the Father Almighty, created His image using the dust of the earth; and then breathed His breath of Life into His Image and it was called the man Adam. Then God created a beautiful garden called Eden, for Adam to live in; now Adam was told by God, not to eat from the Tree Of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Now, God felt that Adam was alone too much, so God created Eve, from Adams rib, so Adam would have a helpmate in life. Now Adam and Eve were the first created Son and Daughter of God, and Eve was Adams wife, they were one flesh.
     Now Adam told Eve about not eating from the Tree Of Knowledge of Good and Evil, however, Eve did it; and then she had Adam eat of the tree, also.
This act of disobeying The Almighty God & Father brought separation from God, and brought sin and punishment upon Adam and Eve and all mankind.
      Well, Sin separates us from God (the book of isaiah chapter 59 verse 2); and the punishment was separation; that's right; God punished Adam and Eve, by stopping them from living forever. That's right, God put them out of the Garden Of Eden, so they could not eat of the Tree Of Life, and live forever with him; permanent spiritual separation. God also told them, that the ground they walked on was cursed; and that they were to go and multiply; for women would be in pain bearing children, and sin would rule over man if he did not do well in God's eyes, and if he did do well in God's eyes, he would be accepted by God; but man never could be good enough in God's eyes. (the book of genesis chapter 2,3&4 & the old testament inclusive)
       Well, Adam and Eve sure put mankind in a pickle, for there was no escape from sin & punishment. Now, God was grieved with man’s struggle, and after centuries passed, God decided to repent of creating man; to destroy man whom he breathed his breath of life into his nostrils.
            The Almighty God found a man called Noah. Genesis chapter 6 verse 13: God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Make thee an ark of go’-pher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch… and so Noah obeyed God.
Well the flood came and Noah and his family, with the animals that God told him to keep, got into the ark, and the waters took them on a journey.

When all had perished, then the water began to reseed and the ark was lowered onto the land again. And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart; I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth….Genesis chapter 6-9.

One problem yet remained: GOD needed to set up a way for his creation to be reconciled to him; so GOD, set up his Plan of Reconciliation for Mankind.
       HERE IT IS: Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form or comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath born our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearer’s is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He is taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.   
WHO IS THIS MYSTERY MAN????  READ ON TO FIND OUT!
     "No man has seen GOD at any time; the only be-gotten son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him." Now, GOD had a Son in the Spirit, and decided to use His Son in a Plan to Free-Up his created Man from the curse of the sin of disobedience, that Adam and Eve caused.
      Now, GOD’s Son in the Spirit was known as “The Word”. “In the beginning was the word, the word was with GOD and the Word was GOD, the same was in the beginning with GOD, all things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. As many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the Sons of GOD, even to them that believe on his name.
And "The Word" was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, and of his fullness have we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man has seen GOD at any time; the only be-gotten son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him”; book of john chapter 1 verse 1-4, 12, 14, 16-18.
     “Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign; behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder. And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty GOD, The Everlasting Father, The Prince Of Peace”(the book of isaiah chapter 7 verse 14, chapter 9 verse 6).
     So, God decided to send His only Begotten Spirit Son to planet earth, to dwell among GOD’s created man. So, GOD placed His Spirit Son into the body of a virgin woman named Mary, who knew no man, but was to be married. When Mary delivered GOD's Spirit Son into the world, she called him, as she had been instructed earlier by GOD; JESUS.
     Now we find that Jesus had to become subject unto his parents until his Baptism by immersion at 30 years old (the book of luke chapter 1 verse 26-38, chapter 2 verse 46-52; chapter 3 verse 22-23). 
     Well, there was a ruler of the Jews named Nicodemus, a pharisee, who came to see Jesus at night. Nicodemus said to Jesus "Rabbi, we know that thou art a Teacher come from GOD; for no man can do the Miracles that you do except GOD be with him." Jesus said: "except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of GOD." Now Nicodemus asked Jesus: "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mothers womb, and be born?" and Jesus answered: "verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be Born of Water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom Of GOD." (the book of john chapter 3 verse 3-5).
     GOD The Father, had worked out the program with His Son Jesus as he wants you reconciled to Him, with His fullness (the book of matthew chapter 5 verse 6). Jesus became the focal point of GOD's Plan Of Reconciliation For Man, because he was put into place supernaturally; making GOD the founder of reconciliation, making the Kingdom of Heaven still available for all (the book of luke chapter 1 verse 26-38). GOD had Jesus pay the price for reconciliation (the book of isaiah chapter 53).
     Simon of Cyrene helped Jesus by carrying his cross to Calvary, Golgotha (book matthew chapter 27 verse 32).
     Jesus of Nazareth gave up his life and let himself be hung on the cross at Calvary in-order to shed his blood for the remission of sins (the book of john chapter 18 verse 6-13).
     Jesus said: "for in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial, where so ever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her" (the book of matthew chapter 26 verse 12-13).
     Jesus said: "For this is my blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the Remission of sins" "And of his kingdom there shall be no end"(the book of matthew chapter 26 verse 28; the book of luke chapter 1 verse 33).
     Jesus of Nazareth then raised himself from the dead, making Jesus "The Risen Christ", who overcame death (the book of john chapter 18 verse 6; book of matthew chapter 28 verse 6; book of luke chapter 23 verse 33-34, 46).
     Jesus Of Nazareth overcomes death, showing himself after his resurrection (the book of john chapter 21 verse 14). Now, herein is Love, not that we loved GOD, but that HE loved us, and sent His Spirit Son to be the propitiation for our sins (the book of first john chapter 4 verse 10).
     Jesus said: "no man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." "I am the way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me"(the book of john chapter 6 verse 44, chapter 14 verse 6).
     The Lord says: "Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (the book of matthew chapter 11 verse 28-30).
 
How do you accomplish this in your life? Simple, just follow the steps.

STEPS: (They really aren't steps, but a series of events.)
STEP 1.
A: BECOME SAVED: Repent: stop doubting; Receive The Word, Believe and be Converted, (the book of first john chapter 5 verse 1; the book of acts chapter 2 verse 41, chapter 3 verse 19; the book of john chapter 3 verse 5). Jesus said: "Verily Verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto Life (the book of john chapter 5 verse 24). Jesus said call on his name and you will be saved.
The work and will of GOD for our lives, is that we believe on Jesus, whom GOD has sent (the book of john chapter 6 verse 29 & 40). "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son Of GOD"(the book of first john chapter 5 verse 5). The Word says: "Be converted; become as little children. Faith filled.(the book of matthew chapter 18 verse 2-3).
        B: Become Forgiven And Cleansed (the book of acts chapter 2 verse 38, chapter 5 verse 29-31, the book of first john chapter 1 verse 9, chapter 2 verse 1-2). "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us" (the book of first john chapter 1 verse 8). The Word says: "Come now and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool" (the book of isaiah chapter 1 verse 18).
       Jesus said: "wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men (the book of matthew chapter 12 verse 30-31). Now, ask GOD The Father, to forgive you and cleanse you:

PRAY THIS PRAYER OUT LOUD: DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER, I COME TO  YOU AND ASK YOU, IN JESUS NAME, TO HELP ME; I NEED YOUR HELP, I CAN'T WALK THIS WALK WITHOUT YOU; I OPEN MY HEART UNTO YOU, FOR I HAVE SINNED AND I NEED YOUR FORGIVENESS, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, AND CLEANSE ME WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS, AND MAKE ME WHITE AS SNOW, AND COME INTO MY HEART; I RECEIVE YOU INTO MY HEART NOW, AS MY LORD AND SAVIOR. THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER, I ASK THIS IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

          C: How Do You Know That You Believe: Jesus said: "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven" "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture" "of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaketh"(the book of matthew chapter 10 verse 32; the book of john chapter 10 verse 9; the book of luke chapter 6 verse 45). Out of the abundance of the heart a man speaketh.
Therefore; tell someone you don't know, that you believe that Jesus is The Son Of God, The Christ who is Risen from the dead. REMEMBER: If you can't say it, then you are not ready.

 
SIDE BAR:
Well you have accomplished becoming saved; the question is will you stay that way?
 
Some schools of theology say yes, because of the thief on the cross; others say they are not sure, so don’t worry about it; some say it depends on your works; others say, no.
 
The real question is answered by Jesus himself; look at the Apostle Peter. OK, what about him? Glad you asked;
Peter denied Jesus three times, remember?
Peter was already Water Baptized, which you are not, yet, and Peter lived and walked with Jesus through-out his ministry.
However, Jesus had to come back to Peter, after He rose from the dead, inorder to re-instate Peter to the Ministry.(Reconciliation)

FOCUS Keep Going; Read on, and follow the rest of the plan that Jesus
put forth.

STEP 2: Learn About Jesus: "The heart of the righteous studieth to answer"(the book of proverbs chapter 15 verse 28; matthew chapter 11 verse 29). "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ"(the book of john chapter 1 verse 17).
Do You Want To Get Into Heaven? Then....
Become Born Again of Water and The Spirit; what Jesus said.

STEP 3: BECOME BORN AGAIN Of The SPIRIT: Be Baptized In The Spirit: "Take My Yoke Upon You"; Ask the Lord for Spiritual baptism; it is a gift from The Lord (the book of luke chapter 11 verse 13; the book of john chapter 14 verse 26; the book of acts chapter 1 verse 8, chapter 2 verse 38, chapter 10 verse 45). Jesus said: "I will pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever (the book of john chapter 14 verse 16). [but this spoke Jesus of the spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the comforter Spirit was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified] (the book of john chapter 7 verse 39).
       Jesus said: "Howbeit when he, The Spirit Of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you" (the book of john chapter 16 verse 13-14).
 
[STEPS 3 @ 4 CAN HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME]
 
STEP 4: BECOME BORN AGAIN OF WATER: Be Water Baptized Out Of Obedience As An Adult: Why? Because Jesus did, when he was thirty, a mature adult in his Fathers eyes; luke chapter 3 verse 22-23. (Jesus of Nazareth corrected the disobedience of Adam and Eve by obeying His Father in Heaven to be Water Baptized as an Adult). Now Jesus made it clear that Water Baptism was essential for qualifying to enter into the Kingdom Of Heaven; john chapter 3 verse 5.
      Now, John the Baptist waited until GOD the Father called him out of the wilderness at thirty years old, to start Water Baptism in the country; luke ch3vs2-3. It is known that John was six months older than Jesus, who also waited until he was thirty, to participate in the Sacrament of Water Baptism for adults. Now in the book of luke ch 3 vs 22, 23: it tells us that Jesus was 30 years old when he was Water Baptized by immersion. In luke ch 2 vs 46 -52, we find that Jesus had to become subject unto his parents until His Baptism. Jesus of Nazareth set the pace correcting the disobedience of Adam and Eve: follow Jesus in Water Baptism: become Born of Water and the Spirit to enter the Kingdom; john ch.3:vs 5. In matthew 3:13-17; luke 3: 21-23; john ch1:29-34; the Scripture tells us that when all the people were Water Baptized; then Jesus came from Galilee to Jordan, to John, to be Baptized of Him, but John forbad Him, because he said he had need to be Baptized of Jesus, and marveled that Jesus came to him; but Jesus said, let it be so now for it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then John let him. When Jesus came up out of the water praying, the Heavens were opened unto him, and Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending like a Dove, and lighting upon Him. Then God spoke and said this is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. In john ch21vs15-17, 1st peter ch 3 vs 21, 22; Peter says, [having been restored by Jesus to the ministry]; "the like figure where unto even Baptism doth also now save us
(not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.
In the book of acts ch 8 vs 12, it says "but when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the Kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were Baptized, both Men and Women."
In acts2:22-41 the Apostles Baptized Men, on the day of Pentacost, adding 3,000 souls unto them. In acts 5:14 it says "and believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both Men and Women." In Mark 16:16 it says "He that believeth and is Baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."
 
STEP 5: Worship GOD: The Word says: "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth"(the book of john chapter 4 verse 23-24). Jesus said that his Words are Spirit and Truth and Life (the book of john chapter 17 verse 17, chapter 6 verse 63).

STEP 6: Love One Another and Judge Not: Jesus said: "This is My Commandment, that you Love one another as I have Loved you" "Judge not, that you be not judged" "take heed, and beware of covetousness, for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of things which he possesseth" (the book of john chapter 15 verse 12; the book of matthew chapter 7 verse 1; the book of luke chapter 12 verse 15).

STEP 7: Become Perfect Like The Father: Love Your Enemies & Give To The Poor; Get Treasure In Heaven; Follow Jesus (the book of matthew chapter 5 verse 44-48, chapter 19 verse 21; the book of mark chapter 10 verse 21; the book of luke chapter 18 verse 22; the book of psalms chapter 112 vers 9). Do not give to the unsaved (the book of matthew chapter 7 verse 6). Do not oppress the poor (the book of proverb chapter 14 verse 31; the book of zechariah chapter 7 verse 10).

 
STEP 8: Endure Unto The End: Jesus said: "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" ( the book of matthew chapter 24 verse 13).
 
WORDS OF ADVICE From Jesus: "He that is not with Me is against Me, and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad (the book of luke chapter 11 verse 23). "Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto Life, and few there be that find it; beware of false Prophets (the book of matthew chapter 7 verse 14-15). Don't follow another man who claimed to be following Jesus; stay focused, follow Jesus (the book of second peter chapter 3 verse 15-18; the book of john chapter 21 verse 22).
      Jesus said: "Continue in My Word; you shall know the Truth, who the Son sets Free is Free indeed. Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you" "It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are LIFE" (the book of john chapter 8 verse 31-32, 36; chapter 6 verse 63; the book of matthew chapter 7 verse 7).
      To do the work of the Ministry, you must be Ordained By Jesus: endued with power from on High (the book of acts chapter 1 verse 22-26).

QUESTION: What about Children? The Lord said in the book of Proverb chapter 22 verse 6: "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Jesus said not to prevent children from coming unto him, but to let them learn of him, and don't cause them any hurt, and take them into your arms, comfort them and lay hands on them to bless them, as Jesus did; for Jesus gives to the children who come to him, the kingdom freely (the book of matthew chapter 18 verse 6; chapter 19 verse 14; the book of mark chapter 10 verse 13-16).
Dedicate the children unto the Lord according to the biblical way and tradition.
