Intervention is ten years old today! I could
editorialize the next few minutes and boast of
our successes, but that would demean our mission
and why the Lord started our ministry. If you
want to know how we began read an old 2004
commentary Go Ye Into All The
World. Pay no attention to the statistics
we gave back then, today they're much better.
There has never been a more critical
time in America, or the world. With apostasy
running rampant in the Church, the revival of the
Roman Empire under the auspices of the European
Union leading to the coming one-world government,
the Gog/Magog alliance of Ezekiel 38-39
continuing to merge through Russian/Iranian
relations, the economic and moral decline of
America and the ongoing restoration of the nation
of Israel, Bible prophesy is literally screaming
from the headlines of today's news that the
Kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Time is growing
short, Jesus is coming, people need to be saved.
That said, I'm
going to celebrate our ten years by doing what
the Lord put us here to do: Spread the Gospel.
You cannot be
saved by being a 'good person':
by grace are ye saved through faith...Not of
works, lest any man should boast."
And there are not 'many
paths' to God, there's only One:
saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
The Bible tells us
that everyone is a sinner:
all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
God;" (Romans 3:23)
You must realize
that there is a punishment for sin:
the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23a)
This does not mean
only physical death, but also spiritual death:
him which is able to destroy both soul and body
in hell." (Matthew 10:28b)
Jesus died on the
cross for your sins:
God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while
we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
And then He rose
from the dead, conquering death:
God raised up the third day, and showed him
openly;" (Acts 10:40)
Because of Jesus'
sacrifice on the cross, eternal life becomes a
free gift from God:
the righteousness of one the free gift came upon
all men unto justification of life." (Romans
gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ
our Lord." (Romans 6:23b)
But just like any
gift, it doesn't become yours until you receive
it. To receive God's gift of eternal life you
must call on the name of the Lord:
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
Time is growing
short and you should not put off your decision.
The Bible tells us:
he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted,
and in the day of salvation have I succored thee:
behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is
the day of salvation.)" (2 Corinthians 6:2)
There is no other
way to be saved than by Jesus, and there is no
better time than now to receive salvation.
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord
Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be
saved. For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is
made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)
ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins
may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing
shall come from the presence of the Lord;"
Jesus said He is
the only way you can receive eternal life. The
Bible says you must repent of your sins, confess
Him as Lord and receive Him as your Savior. If
you don't, you will be condemned for eternity:
that believeth on him is not condemned: but he
that believeth not is condemned already, because
he hath not believed in the name of the only
begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)
If you're reading
this and all at once millions of people have
suddenly vanished from the earth, the Rapture has
already taken place and the Tribulation will soon
begin. If the Rapture has not occurred yet,
please take a moment to trust in Jesus. Not only
will confessing Him as Lord and receiving Him as
your Savior make you ready for the Rapture, it
will also empower you to endure the trials and
tribulations of everyday life. Jesus freely
offers you comfort and guidance through the Holy
Spirit for your life today, and eternal salvation
through Him for your life tomorrow, and forever.
To receive Jesus
as your Savior simply do as the Bible tells us in
Romans 10:9 above: Believe in His
resurrection with your heart and confess Him as
Lord with your mouth. You can say this prayer or
one similar for your confession:
Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner and need Your
forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins
and God raised You from the dead. I'm sorry for
my sins and want to turn from them and follow
You. I now confess that You are Lord and ask You
to come into my life and be my Savior. Thank You
for saving me Lord Jesus. In Your Name, amen.
But you may be
thinking, there's no example in the Bible of a 'sinner's
prayer'. True, were saved by Gods
grace through our faith in Christ (Ephesians
by a prayer. But we're told to "confess
with our mouth" (Romans 10:9a) because the verbal
confession is a product of our salvation (Romans
If were not willing to confess Jesus as
Lord before others, He will deny us before the
Father in Heaven (Matthew 10:32-33).
belief in His resurrection must also accompany
the verbal confession (Romans
because that belief produces righteousness (Romans
Our outward confession is a product of our inward
belief. One can say their own prayer for their
confession, I only offer an example.
Remember the thief
on the cross? He believed in Jesus and was saved
by Gods grace, so he addressed Jesus as
Lord and asked Him to remember him when He came
into His Kingdom (Luke 23:42). That was the thiefs
verbal confession of Jesus Lordship and his
acknowledgment of Jesus resurrection by
alluding to the Lord's future Kingdom to come.
So if youve
just received Lord Jesus as your Savior welcome
to the family of God and to eternal life! Please
read and study your Bible and pray every day for
guidance. If you don't have a Bible there's one
online at Blue
Letter Bible, or you can download free Bible and
study software for your computer at E-Sword.
