How to get to Heaven, GUARANTEED!
Have you ever been told that all you have to do is get saved, and that saying the sinners prayer wraps it up for our salvation? In some circles it’s believed that once you are baptized that’s it, and it doesn’t matter what you do, you are going to heaven. I wonder what G-d’s word says on the matter. Let’s look at a lengthy scripture quote in Matthew 25:31-46, out of the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern:
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, accompanied by all the angels, he will sit on his glorious throne.32 All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates sheep from goats.33 The ‘sheep’ he will place at his right hand and the ‘goats’ at his left.34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you made me your guest,36 I needed clothes and you provided them, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’37 Then the people who have done what God wants will reply, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and make you our guest, or needing clothes and provide them?39 When did we see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’40 The King will say to them, ‘Yes! I tell you that whenever you did these things for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did them for me!’41 “Then he will also speak to those on his left, saying, ‘Get away from me, you who are cursed! Go off into the fire prepared for the Adversary and his angels!42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,43 a stranger and you did not welcome me, needing clothes and you did not give them to me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’44 Then they too will reply, `Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, a stranger, needing clothes, sick or in prison, and not take care of you?’45 And he will answer them, `Yes! I tell you that whenever you refused to do it for the least important of these people, you refused to do it for me!’46 They will go off to eternal punishment, but those who have done what God wants will go to eternal life.”
A few interesting things about this passage is that Jesus (Hebrew: Yeshua, English: Salvation) never mentioned praying the sinners prayer, going to church, going to bible studies, listening to a sermon, or any other religious activities. This discourse shows us what we have to do for others. To show them compassion, mercy, love, and kindness.
The things that Jesus asks us to do in this portion of scripture are works. According to what’s written here you can go to hell for not doing them, and on the other hand, if you do them you will go to heaven.
Clearly Yeshua is teaching us that in order to go to Heaven we have to do something with our faith. Faith without works is dead. The reason we fail to do the works is because, at times, we’re selfish. We want a nice little church service with nice people who can pay their tithes, so we can all have a nice time.
What about the alcoholics, drug addicts, porn addicts, sex offenders, the poor, naked, blind, thirsty, hungry, sick, imprisoned, lonely, in need of a place to stay? Who wants to help these people?
I tell you, not many are found in Churches, Mosques, or Synagogues; they are on the street, in jail, in hospitals, in nursing homes, in alleyways, in mental institutions, in detox, in halfway homes, and a host of many other places. They have many issues that have never been dealt with, and many of us don’t want to help them, or have them around us.
Yeshua made it very clear that if we don’t start doing the works in this discourse, and reaching out to those less fortunate than ourselves, we will never make it to heaven. It’s a beautiful thing to say the sinners prayer, but our salvation by faith must be coupled with works. You can’t have one without the other.
The least we can do is sponsor an overseas child; this will provide them with food (You’re feeding the hungry), clean water (You’re giving them something to drink) clothing (You’re clothing the naked) medical attention (Taking care of the sick). This meets four of Yeshua’s criteria. Can you think of ways to fulfill the rest? Don’t delay any longer; it’s a matter of death or life.
The Kosher Dietary Laws
G-d in his word in the book of Leviticus said not to each pork or shellfish. There are many believers who think God changed his mind about the matter. Has God really changed his mind? If eating pork is acceptable now, why wasn’t it acceptable in the old and outdated Torah?
Did Jesus death, burial, and resurrection suddenly make a pig fit for consumption? Did you know that science confirms the detriment of eating pork and shellfish? Plug ‘dangers of eating pork and shellfish’ in your search engine. You will get the truth about pork and shellfish eating.
Remember after forty or fifty years of pork and shellfish consumption your poor body gets sick, and you may contract a disease leading to death. Your children have just started their own families, and you’re wondering why G-d has done this to you? A Pastor or well meaning deacon tells you it must be G-d’s will. Read the info on the websites. Science backs up what I’m saying. G-d truly knows what He is talking about; pigs, lobsters, snow crabs, shrimps are scavengers. They eat anything they can get their ‘hands’ on. Pigs will eat their own excrement, human corpses, other pigs, anything. G-d made them that way, they’re the garberators on planet earth. They were created to keep the earth clean. They were never meant for human consumption.
Lobsters are bottom feeders they eat anything that dies and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. G-d said that anything that has a split hoof and chews the cud is fit for consumption. A pig has a split hoof, but doesn’t chew the cud. Mussels, quahogs, clams, scallops are all filter feeders. Eating any part of them would be like eating out of a vacuum cleaner bag. They filter the water in which they live. They were never created for human consumption.
You may ask me why I even care to write to you about this. It’s because I care about you. The consumption of these creatures could lead to an impaired life, or even a premature death. Remember G-d said it, and science backs it up. G-d gave us all kinds of food to eat. Pork and shellfish are not food. They were created to clean up the earth and sea.
Please give some careful consideration into eating a Kosher diet, it could add years on your life.
