ESSENTIAL  QUESTION 
 
Are you  redeemed and assured  of Heaven? 

One can know.  Study this page and the Feature pages listed to find answers, and then pray to God to show you.  See the Gospel in Brief below on this page. .   

Redemption speaks  of being  rescued (saved) and reconciled to God, who paid a great price for us; and it tells of great blessings in Christ, and eternal hope with Him and in His glorious reign as "King of kings, and Lord of lords".  
Redemption Way is about  heaven and hell;  also salvation of the soul;  assurance of eternal life; blessing;  judgments;   man's course;   the Lord's sacrifice, kingdom reign, glory, and purposes, etc.  Such papers are posted here at times.  Contact the Site Manager for further information on these subjects.  

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life;  and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:36)

THE  GOSPEL IN   BRIEF
Understanding The Blessing

A  Few  Verses  To  Consider:  God is holy (Psa.145:17),  and no sin can  come into His presence (Hab. 1:13).   Man is born in sin so needs a new (spiritual) birth  (Psa. 51:5; John 3;  Rom.3;  Rom. 5:12;  Rom.10), and he must realize that  (Lev. 10:10; I Cor. 2: 14;  Eph. 2:3).  Christ died for the un-godly (Rom.5: 6-8), rose again (I Cor. 15: 3-4),  and if one truly believes on the Lord Jesus Christ he shall be saved from all sin (Acts 16: 27-34; Heb. 10:17- 23).  There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus (Rom.8:1),  and He that possesses the Son of God is sealed by the Holy Spirit and now possesses eternal life (John 3:16, 36; I John  5: 11-13).  Isn't that nice to know?  Does the reader truly know God's Son ---the Lord Jesus Christ? (John 17:3).

REDEMPTION  WAY:
Bible  Counsel - Section B
An  Impossible  Thing
"It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted (clearly heard) of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit (being awakened by God ---'quickened' and learning of the truth of it), and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come (eternal issues), if they shall fall away (reject it), to renew them again unto repentance;  seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh (rebellion), and put Him to an open shame."   - Hebrews 6:4-6.

A songwriter has said: "If I gained the world but lost the Savior, were my life worth living for a day? Could my yearning heart find rest and comfort in the things that soon must pass away? If I gained the world but lost the Savior, would my gain be worth the toil and strife? Are all earthly treasures worth comparing with the gift of God, eternal life?"  -Echoes Of Grace Hymn.  The Word of God says: "...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Rom.6:23).

EVIDENCE OF SALVATION
[Letter to one speaking about believing in God and going to Church to win Heaven]

Dear friend:
  I do not see from anything you say as evidence of God's salvation, though I am glad you seem to be a seeker. Please consider this: It is not about good works and winning Heaven. Have you read John 1; John 3; John 14; and also the epistle of Romans; and noted 1 Jn. 5:10-12 in the Bible? You may need to read that again if you have, and ask God to reveal the truth of it.  

  Believing in a creator-God is not salvation of the soul!  Believing about the Lord Jesus, and even trying to follow His teachings is not salvation!  Going to church services is not salvation!  Baptism is not salvation! Living morally and being good to your neighbors is not salvation! That can be a good foundation to begin, but the Bible shows us what is divine truth: 

a} One MUST truly believe in the Creator-God (Jehovah ---ever self-existing One); 
b} See salvation in God's beloved Son ---the Lord Jesus, according to the New Testament, rather than the Israelite religion of olden times; which was mostly typology pointing forward to their coming Messiah, the Lord Jesus, the Christ of God; 
c} Thank God for sending the Lord Jesus to pay that awful price of redemption as you see in the Bible, and then confess you are a sinner as God declares, and state to God that you want to be a "child of God"; 
d} Confess and state to Him you are now receiving the Lord Jesus into your heart as your Savior, and thank Him for His sacrifice, and now making Him Lord of your life (and best Friend). If that is your true desire, then begin your walk and talk with the Lord Jesus as you go forward, and He and the Father will be with you for leading and blessings by the Holy Spirit within you (that is the trinity).  

  There is no salvation in our religious reasoning, dear friend, for salvation and eternal hope is a relationship and not just an intellectual belief; so begin reading the Gospels and Epistles in your Bible (the KJV is recommended); and see what God is trying to say to you, friend. Therein is the message of God to all mankind for salvation and eternal hope. I will pray for you.    - R. L. DeWitt: 02/18: RG36

*****************************************************************************************

Vain is the thought of man
To merit heaven by prayer;
Tis only Jesus' precious blood
Can give admission there.

Could ceaseless prayers ascend,
Could tears forever flow,
The soul were still unblest, unsaved,
And peace could never know.

But faith's one look at Christ
Expiring on the tree ---
One heart-believing glance at Him
Can set the sinner free.

None can without the blood
Of Jesus be forgiven;
'Tis resting on the blood alone
That fits the soul for heaven.
