Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:
Oft times I hear some believer say, “I wonder if I am really saved? I wonder if I am really going to go to heaven?”
Let me give you 7 reasons why I KNOW I am going to heaven:
- BECAUSE GOD SAYS SO. God tells us, “He that believeth on the Son HATH everlasting life.” (John 3:36). Try to write it any plainer than that, if we trust in Jesus, we have eternal life. (John 3:18; John 5:24).
- BECAUSE OF THE PERFECT WORK OF CHRIST ON THE CROSS. When Jesus shed His precious blood on the cross, He paid for the sins of the world. John tells us that His blood cleanses us from ALL sin, past, present, future! (I John 1:7; I John 2:9). In Hebrews 10:14 God tells us that the eternal life that Jesus gives us is forever, if it is forever, then how can we lose it?
- BECAUSE OF THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Paul tells us “He that hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Phil. 1:6). When we accept Jesus, the Holy Spirit enters our life and works in us until we stand at the feet of Jesus. The Holy Spirit never gives up; He never stops working in us. (I Cor. 3:16).
- BECAUSE WE ARE SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. When we accept Jesus, God puts His seal on us, which is the Holy Spirit, to indicate that we belong to Him. We are His property, and no one can break that seal, be it men or angels or the devil himself. (Eph. 1:13, Eph. 3:10). So just relax.
- BECAUSE WE ARE A PART OF CHRIST’S BODY. The very moment we ask Jesus into our heart and life, we become a part of His Body. (I Cor. 12:27). We call it the “baptism of the Holy Spirit”, we don’t pray for it because it happens the moment we are born again, or receive Jesus! (I Cor. 12:12-31). Rest assured, dear friend, no part of Christ’s Body will ever be in hell and I am part of His Body! (I Cor. 12:12-31).
- BECAUSE ETERNAL LIFE IS A PRESENT POSSESSION. I hear these people talk about receiving eternal life when they die, but God says we receive eternal life the moment we believe in Him. Jesus tells us in John 5:24 that if we hear His Word and believe on Him, we HAVE everlasting life; we don’t wait for anything, but immediately we have eternal life in us. God doesn’t give eternal life on the ‘lay away’ plan!
- BECAUSE JESUS HOLDS US IN HIS HAND. Friend, we do not hold onto Jesus, Jesus holds unto us! Listen to Jesus, “they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand”. (John 10:28) But that is not all Jesus said, He also added, “My Father, which gave them to Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:29). So there it is—Jesus holds us in His hand and His father takes hold and holds us in His hand so that we are in the Savior’s hand and the Father’s hand! WOW! We are safe and secure. The dumbest thing I have heard is, “What if I break away from God?” You mean you are stronger than God! Good Grief!
So, we bring the good news to a hurting world. With the economic upheaval and uncertainty around us, it is good to have the good news of the gospel.
And, it is possible because of people like yourself who pray and give. We have no other source of support except God’s people who worship with us and stand by with prayers and gifts.
God bless you! I’m going to be looking for you this weekend!
In our Savior’s love,
Harold E. Salem, Pastor
THANK YOU FOR WRITING…
A true appreciator of you and your blessed program. See ya in person at the next stop! Love and light.
I am sending you a little gift. Thank you. I am a disabled Vietnam vet.
SIOUX CITY, IOWA
I have a small Bible study and I use your monthly “A New Song” in our study. Thank you and God bless you.
Suggestion when someone says they are lonely, and no one ever calls them, perhaps they could call a charitable organization and offer to volunteer as a Christian phone friend, yet not misrepresenting themselves as a counselor, just willing Christian ear, who knows how it feels to be lonely.
I watch your service every week and I am so grateful for your service. I am on oxygen now and I rarely go out so your services are really a blessing. Thank you so much!
ST JOSEPH, MISSOURI
Thank you for all you do. I enjoy the program and hope it continues. Please use my gift to help others in need of God’s Word. “Though he slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Job 13:15. An old submarine radio-man.
RIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN
Hope you are all safe and well. It is a difficult time in our country and the world. So glad you helped me find peace and love with Jesus. He helps through each day.
Today as I write the whole world is changing fast. Lots of people pushing God and Jesus out of people’s minds. We must remind people that Jesus is the only way to total peace. The Christian Worship Hour has brought me peace, for Jesus is in my heart.
After I read, “A New Song”, your Bible study—for a week or two, I then lay it on the lunch or coffee time table at a local factory that we do part time cleaning at night (40 – 50 rough boys). It took a while but now they are reading it. I notice they are not throwing it away!!! It spreads the Word farther than most people think!!
ROSE HILL, IDAHO
God bless your ministry. I found it when I needed it most.
OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA
I am an 86-year old disabled veteran. Jesus has given me 3 wakeup calls as I have not been faithful until now. I hope and pray that I will not backslide again. May God bless you for your good work. Hope to see you yonder.
I have had precious medical conditions but I thank God that I was touched by the Holy Spirit and born again at age 39. Isn’t Jesus wonderful?!
MIDDLE ISLAND, NEW YORK
Our family enjoys watching Christian Worship Hour every week. Even our 2 year old will settle down when we turn CWH on.
“And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”
