Christian Marriage

"Oh Jesus, I’m lost forever," cried a woman.

P1230572

The Revival by God that started in Wales in 1859 had spread. Hundreds of thousands of people repented. They cried out for Jesus to save them from their sin and eternal damnation. They came under conviction that they were out of options. They wanted Jesus and Him Alone!Miners prayer meeting

-Broken hearts begging God for mercy…

-Preachers proclaiming the eternal life giving truth and love of God's Holy Scriptures, the Bible…

-18,000 people gathering without any sound system to hear God's Word and to pray…

-Public Houses (Bars) utterly closing down…

-Marriages being rescuedtent

The Liverpool Penitentiary

“A clergyman by the name of Rev. John Baillie visited the Liverpool Penitentiary and addressed the women inmates for about 45 minutes on the revival. He then asked them if they meant to turn their backs that night coldly on Jesus and said that he would give them two minutes to consider their answer.

Before the two minutes had expired one of them cried out, ‘Oh Jesus, I’m lost forever,’ and fell prostrate on the floor. Others immediately cried out and in a few minutes the whole number were sobbing in intense anguish. He felt that he could say and do nothing, as the Lord had taken the whole thing into his own hand.

He had to go away, and in about two hours he called at the Penitentiary, and found that they had continued in that state for nearly that time, till they went to bed. One who had before been seeking Jesus, found Him in the interval and had been speaking to others about Him.”

 

The Liverpool SchoolSchool

“Attached to a chapel where revival services were being held was a school of two to three hundred children from the surrounding neighbourhood. During the first week, while the revival services were being held in the chapel a few children of the day school were seen earnestly seeking mercy.

The next morning, the teacher of the school, rose at the early hour, and, while pleading for the rapid spread of the revival, and particularly that the work that had commenced among the children might go on, she had the assurance that God was going to work mightily.

That morning, before the usual school duties were commenced, she taught the children the text ‘Now is the accepted time, behold today is the day of salvation.’ She then requested the children to remain silent for a few moments, and reflect upon the word ‘now.’

She broke the solemn silence by praying audibly; when she heard stifled sobs all around her, and on rising from prayer she found herself surrounded by a large number of deeply convicted children. Some cried out, ‘Oh, teacher, pray for us,’ whilst others, leaning upon her shoulder, sobbed out, ‘Oh, teacher, we will give our hearts to Jesus.’

She then asked all that had fully resolved to come to Jesus to follow her from the schoolroom to the chapel vestry. The vestry was immediately filled, and some, unable to get in, were kneeling outside the vestry door.”¹   {Bold added}

Dear friend, have you run out of options? Do you sense the gripping urgency? Eternity is coming soon. Your life on earth is quickly fading. Do you realize your sin has already condemned you? You cannot enter Heaven unless Jesus Christ, God's only Son, saves you!

 

Hebrews 9:27 says, “Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.”

 

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

 

Jesus saves you not by your attempt to earn or perform your way into Heaven, but by His sacrificial demonstration of love on the Cross.

 

PUT YOUR TRUST IN JESUS.

 

If you, like many people, are trying to become acceptable to God based on your own merit, performance, or good deeds, God wants you to know that:

 

“…all our righteous acts are like filthy rags...” Isaiah 64:6

 

God does not want you to trust in your effort, your obedience, or how active you are in your church.

 

He wants you to trust only in Jesus and His ability to forgive you and save you. He alone can "make" you righteous. You can’t try hard to become righteous. You are "made" righteous by Him.                                            II Corinthians 5:21.

 

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faithand this not from yourselves, it is the gift of Godnot by works, so that no one can boast.”  Ephesians 2:8,9

 

To know these truths is not enough. You must individually receive Christ. Listen to the comforting and assuring Word of God:

 

“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”  John 1:12

 

“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Acts 2:21

 

 

RECEIVE (GLADLY WELCOME ) JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE AS YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD.

 

 

Right now, if you are not His, will you receive (gladly welcome) Jesus as your personal Savior and Lord?

 

Please pray this prayer:

 

 

“Lord Jesus,

 

I need You. I confess I am a sinner and without Your forgiveness and

new life I will remain forever lost and separated from You by my sin.

Right now, I choose to receive You into my life. Come in, Lord Jesus.

Thank You for forgiving all my sinpast, present, and future. Make

me the kind of person You want me to be. Thank you, Lord.”²

 

 

If you prayed this prayer, Jesus has saved you and you are a brand new creation! Heaven will be your eternal Home! Please email us at:   Click on jgrunseth@centurylink.net   if you prayed this prayer and / or you would like us to pray for you.

 

God bless you!
