You will be saved

When you accept Jesus so happens that one wonders. It will be saved - it means saved.

Mountaineering.

There are fears examples of people who have been in the church all his life, but they have no idea how to be saved. Therefore, we must once again emphasize that it is saved by personally receiving Jesus Christ. There is no other way. It is when you accept Jesus as salvation in place in your life.

My story

There, right there, right then, I was saved and my life was transformed and I would never be the same person!

Arriving in the Pentecostal church in front of the stage on the left half of the benches at the first bench I bend my knees to several people around me. I remember well, this was happening somewhere. Today, the church is rebuilt but I can still point out where the place was somewhere that I bent my knees.

Johnny, the new youth pastor, knelt beside me while there were others who were around me, and he asked me:

- Are you used to be?

I was a bit nonplussed by the question, but since I was not used to pray so I replied shyly and uncertainly:

- No I am not.

- When we do this, said Jonny. I ask before we ask for. In that prayer takes you accept Jesus and be saved.

This, I thought sounded good, but just before we were to ask, I thought "maybe this is a scam all of it but then it turns out well." The people who were around me laid their hands on my back and on my shoulders, and I drilled down my face in my hands against the worn brown pew and prayed Jonny before me and I asked for:

- Jesus, I come to you now.
- Jesus, I bring to you now!
- Jesus, I confess you as my Lord!
- I think you have died dying for my sins.
- I believe that God raised you from the dead!
- Forgive all my sins!
- Thank you Jesus that you now have saved me!
- Thank you Jesus that you now have forgiven all my sins!
- Thank you that I am now a child of God!
- Amen.

I saw no angels or any other visions, nor heard any voices but afterward I breathed out and thought:

- Phew, now it was done!

There, right there, right then, I was saved and my life was transformed and I would never be the same person!

The fact is that salvation in place immediately when I received the living Jesus Christ in my life.

When I talk about this event for the people, I usually tell that it was not a church that saved me, nor any doctrine, no pastor or some other people, but it was the living Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ!

This event I tell in my book "The Longest Night", and even more detail in my forthcoming book "The unwanted". It will be in 2020.

An under occurs

When you accept Jesus so happens that one wonders. It will be saved - it means saved.

Here above, I have told you how I was saved. I was saved when I accepted Jesus and my life was transformed.

But I did not know much of the Bible, nor did I know so much about Jesus or how it worked in a Christian's life, but I knew somehow that I needed Jesus. That's why I took him.

If I had not received Jesus, then I had not been saved. It would not really have mattered if I had been very much in the Bible and known to all aspects of the Christian life worked but if I had not accepted Jesus when I had not been saved. Set stands and falls thus with Jesus.

You need Jesus

It does not matter if you are a church and live sets most righteous deeds, for if you do not have Jesus, then set nothing worth. You need Jesus. Set so you will be saved.

When you accept Jesus so happens that one wonders. It will be saved - it means saved. It will also be born again - a new creation, one gets all his sins forgiven, you get eternal life, you become a child of God, one becomes righteous, a heavenly citizen, gets his name written in the book of life in heaven, and so on.

It is done many great things so they accept Jesus. If you choose not to accept Jesus, but you're just a church as if it were a compound, even when done none of these miracles that I listed.

You must accept Jesus

So you have to accept Jesus. That's when you will be saved. The Bible talks a lot about receiving Jesus. One of my favorite verses is John 1:12. It says:

But as many as received him, he gave the right to become children of God, to them that believe on his name.

Clearly states that you should accept Jesus. And all who accept Jesus are God's children. Does not against Jesus, then you are not a child of God. So you have to accept Jesus in order to become a child of God.

When I received Jesus, I became a child of God. Before, I had not been there. It stands or falls with Jesus if you are a child of God or not.

Understood how important it was

I was saved when I received Jesus, and from the outset I realized how important it was. Therefore, I was always careful to always talk about Jesus when I testified for the people.

It happened when I met people who claimed to be Christian and a member of a church, but I was always confused about their reaction when I started talking about the need to accept Jesus.

They perceived that not what I was talking about. The reason they did not understand this was because they were not saved and Christians because they had not understood, or been told that they have to take against Jesus in order to become Christians.

To have something you must accept it

This helps thus not being in a church or say you are a Christian, but you must accept the living person of Jesus Christ. You have nothing until you consciously have received this.

If you get a car, or bike, you have to accept this before you have it. In the same way it is with Jesus. If you have Jesus, you must first have received him. And you do not accept Jesus, then you are not saved.

John 1:12

But as many as received him, he gave the right to become children of God, to them that believe on his name.

The Bible teaches us that you will be saved you must accept Jesus. It is only those who have received Jesus who is saved.

The Bible says in several places that you should accept Jesus. Verse we just read says it. It says that when you accept Jesus, you are a child of God.

This means that you have not accepted Jesus, you are not a child of God. God's children are only those who have received Jesus.

All is not God's children. It is only those who have received Jesus.

Zacchaeus

Luke 19: 5-6

When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for today I must come and stay in your house." Zacchaeus hurried down and received him with joy.

Everywhere where Jesus came took the people against him. And those who received him were saved and had their sins forgiven.

Zacchaeus had climbed up in a tree accepted Jesus. And it says that he received him with joy.

Zacchaeus was saved

Luke 19: 9

Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham.

After Zacchaeus had received Jesus as Jesus testified about him and said he was now saved.

Zacchaeus was saved when he received Jesus. Likewise, you will be saved when you receive Jesus.

All men are not saved. It is only those who have received Jesus who is saved.

It is when you receive the living person of Jesus Christ you will be saved. It is important to emphasize that it is only Jesus who saves.

salvation for

It is nothing other than Jesus who saves. Salvation in place immediately when you receive Jesus as Lord of their lives.

It is only he and no one else, and nothing else that saves.

But...

Do you see the difference? You do all these things because you are saved, not to be saved. You can not replace something with Jesus Christ. He is the only savior, and it is to him that you must accept in order to be saved.

There are fears examples of people who have been in the church all his life, but they have no idea how to be saved. Therefore, we must once again emphasize that it is saved by personally receiving Jesus Christ. There is no other way. It is when you accept Jesus as salvation in place in your life.

You can live as saved, you can pray the right prayers and behave religious and holy, but you have not accepted Jesus, you are not saved. It is only when you take to Jesus you will be saved!

Been careful to tell

Ever since I myself was saved, I have been very careful to tell people how they should also be saved.

They are saved by accepting Jesus Christ.

But as many as received Him (Jesus), he gave the right to become children of God, to them that believe on his name. (John 1:12).

This verse is one of my favorite verses. Clearly says that you should accept Jesus Christ. And when you do, you become a child of God. In other words, God's children are "saved," "born again", "reverse" or "eternal life".

Receive Jesus

I myself was saved by accepting Jesus Christ. There was no church I have received, or a religion, but it was the living God the Son Jesus Christ.

It went so I knelt at the first bench in the Pentecostal Church in Ljungby. Some put his hands on me and Youth Pastor Johnny Karlman dictated a prayer for me. I asked for a high with my mouth, and that way I received Jesus Christ. Immediately, I was saved and my life was transformed.

I've been through more in and I have been through the miracle that is the greatest miracle that anyone at all can be part of. The largest over is when someone gets saved and accept Jesus Christ. There is no greater under. It is the biggest miracles available.

Jesus then came into Jericho and walked through the city. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, and was a foreman at the customs, and he was rich. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, because he was small in stature. Then he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for today I must come and stay in your house." Zacchaeus hurried down and received him with joy. Everyone who saw it muttered angrily: "He has taken out of a sinner." But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord: "Lord, the half of what I own, I give to the poor, and if I have cheated anyone, I give him back four times." Jesus said to him, " This day is salvation come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost. "(Luke 19: 1-10).

This famous section deals with the tax collector Zacchaeus salvation. I choose to highlight a few things from the text that I have done in bold.

Zacchaeus was saved when he received Jesus

It says in the text that Zacchaeus received Jesus. They received Jesus in biblical times. So it's nothing that we have found in the recent past. It was Zacchaeus then saved, and his whole life was transformed.

It happened really something when he received Jesus. So it was no empty ritual and then his life was the same as before. No, he had changed. This he showed when he wanted to give money to the poor and to pay four times again if he had deceived anyone.

Receiving Jesus is a conversion

It is therefore impossible to say that now I have accepted Jesus are saved, and then live life normally again in shame and defeat. No, to accept Jesus Christ is repentance. There is a creation during and becoming transformed. Man lives not left his life of sin, deception, and the worship of idols.

It is seen on a man, if he is saved. Jesus could clearly see in Zacchaeus that he was transformed and saved. Jesus took Zacchaeus's conversion as an example for the people around who saw it. It shows you if you are saved or not. You continues therefore not to live your life in shame and humiliation.

Zacchaeus was asked to rush down and accept Jesus. You should not wait to receive Jesus. One day it might actually be too late. No, take him while there is time. Do as Zacchaeus: Hurry to receive Jesus.

It is the joy of receiving Jesus

He received Jesus with joy! I like that word. It is not boring to receive Jesus. I have not seen a single person to receive Jesus with sadness. There have always been pleased. In addition, there will be joy in heaven when someone repent and accept Jesus Christ and be saved. There will also be joy among believed siblings down here on earth when someone gets saved.

Community

God created man for fellowship with himself

God created man in the beginning. He created Adam and Eve and he had fellowship with them in paradise.

Man fell into sin

But then the unbelievable happened. Man turned back on God and went their own way.

Humans no longer wanted to walk in fellowship with God. It is this which is a shame.

Because of sin that Adam and Eve lost and expelled from paradise because they no longer had to have fellowship with God.

All have sinned

But it's not just Adam and Eve have sinned. Without it, everyone has done. You also.

Because all people have sinned, they are in the same situation as Adam and Eve. They are lost and expelled from paradise.

God loves man

But God loved man so much that he did not want her to be lost.

God wanted to save man and restore her back to paradise.

God sent Jesus to the world

But there was only one way for God to save man. He had to send His only Son Jesus Christ to the world.

Jesus' cross, death and resurrection

Jesus was beaten, insulted, offended and thorn-crowned. He was nailed to a cross and died.

Jesus was laid in a tomb, but God raised him from the dead after he had been dead for three days.

Jesus was taken up into heaven, and sat on the throne together with God. From there, Jesus will come back.

Everything is ready for your rescue

Now God has made everything clear to your rescue. All you need to do is to accept Jesus Christ.

When you receive Jesus you will be saved and receive communion with God again.

And one day you come home to heaven - paradise - which is now open to you again.

How are you saved?

Now if you want to be saved - saved - then you must accept Jesus. It's the only thing you need to do because God has made everything clear for you on the cross necessary for you to be saved - saved.

Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. (Rev. 3:20).

This amazing verse from Revelation chapter three and verse 20, many were saved on.

It is Jesus himself who takes the initiative to knock door of your heart. But it is only you who will open the door. Are you going to open the door to Jesus and let him in?

Jesus does not wear the door and stepped on by force. You must willingly open yourself to Jesus. And when you do, the steps of Jesus and come into you. Then you will be saved, forgiven, transformed and born again. An amazing creation in the place in you.

Then you fellowship and relationship with the living and risen Jesus Christ. It's an amazing life. Bible says to "keep the meal." There is a strong picture of a community. You can have fellowship with the living God the Son. And it gets you if you accept Him.

- Have you received Jesus Christ? If you have not done it, why not do it today. Ask my suggested prayer below loud with your mouth and believe in your heart - then takes salvation for you with. It is the largest in that you can ever be part of.

When you accept Jesus as your Lord, then it is Jesus himself who comes in and takes up his abode in you!

How to accept Jesus

Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me.

It is when you accept Jesus and ask Him to come into you as your Lord you will be saved. Then Jesus does the saving in in you and you will be saved, born again and a new creation!

When you accept Jesus as your Lord, then it is Jesus himself who comes in and takes up his abode in you!

Jesus comes to live in you

Ephesians 3:17

and to Christ by faith will live in your hearts and you will be rooted and grounded in love.

When you receive Jesus by faith, Jesus comes into you and live in your heart.

Jn 14:23

Jesus answered, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him."

Jesus takes up his abode in you. He will literally into you and live in you. And he will never leave you, unless you leave him.

But if Jesus should be able to dwell in you, you must accept him willingly. He intrudes not on. Jesus is a gentleman. But if you open your heart to him and receive him when he comes into you!

Then only occurs miracle

It's when you first receive Jesus into your heart as a miracle occurs. Then, your spiritual heart - your inner being completely transformed and remodeled. Yes, you will be saved. This can not any man to do, learn, or the church, but only Jesus Christ!

Col 2: 6

Just as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him,

The Bible is very clear in its teaching. It tells you to accept Jesus as Lord. Anyone who has not accepted Jesus are not saved. To be saved you must accept Jesus.

The Bible says that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart and you will be saved. You must also confess that Jesus is Lord and receive Him as Lord.

It helps not for you to just be a member of a church, you must also accept Jesus as Lord.

A man came to my home when I was up there for many years. He attended our meetings and blended in well. Church members welcomed him and was glad that he came. And so they were content with that. They did not know how it was with his spiritual welfare. It was just as if they already felt that he was saved, now that he was at our meetings. But just because you go to meetings so it does not mean that you are saved. So do not be fooled.

I noticed that there was something not quite right with this man so I asked him to say "Jesus is my Lord," but he could not, because he was not saved. So I nagged and nagged at him that he had to accept Jesus and confess him as Lord to be saved. Yes, he got mad at me for all the nagging, but finally he gave in, accepted Jesus and confessed Him as their Lord - and the miracle was a fact! He was saved!

Several years later I met him in another city and he was so happy that I had been nagging at him that he needed to accept Jesus and be saved. Salvation miracle was still holding. He was preserved and still lived there in Jesus Christ!

When was the miracle? It happened when he received Jesus as their Lord!

The Bible says clearly to be saved you must accept Jesus!

When you receive Jesus you will be saved and get all your sins forgiven. You become a child of God (John 1:12), all your sins are forgiven, you get eternal life and heaven will be your home country.

In the Bible there are many examples of how people received Jesus. Zacchaeus did, for example, receive Jesus with joy (Luke 19: 6).

"Today salvation has come to this house," said Jesus a few verses later. Zacchaeus was thus saved - saved when he received Jesus.

If you want to accept Jesus, be saved and a child of God, you can ask the suggested prayer below.

This prayer is for some misunderstood. They mistakenly believe that it is the prayer that saves, but it is Jesus who saves!

You are saved when you receive Jesus, and that you can do in this prayer:

Jesus,

I receive you now and confess you as my Lord and Frälsare.Jag believe that God raised you from the dead.

I ask forgiveness for all my sins.

Thank you that I am now frälst.Tack that you have forgiven me and thank you that I am now a child of God.

Amen.


Bad to the prayer above?
