There is only One way to Heaven and that is by the Cross of Christ. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sins and the blood of Jesus Christ God's Son was shed for the sins of the whole world. There is only One Saviour who could satisfy the righteous demands of Almighty God and that was the sacrifice of His Only Son who was born to die as His pascal lamb for the sins of mankind. We can now boldly declare with all believers; Christ has died! Christ is Risen! Christ shall come again. Hallelujah. Amen. - Pastor Max Solbrekken!

Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." (Mark 16:15) 

Our Lord declared, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me."(John 14: 6). 

Jesus invites us, "Come unto Me all ye who labour and are  heavy laden and I will give you rest." (Matt.11: 28). 

He assures us, "Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out."(John 6:47):"And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my Father's hand." (Matt.10:28,29). 

St. Paul made this amazing statement, "If ye then be risen with Christ seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God." (Col 3: 1-3). 

My dear friend, you are secure in Jesus! The Word of God states: "And lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world (age)." (Matt.28:20); "He hath said,  I will never leave thee nor forsake thee."( Heb.13:5) 

The original text is stronger. Jesus used a double imperative. He actually said: "I will never NO never leave thee. I will never NO never forsake thee..."
My dear friend, you are secure in Jesus Christ. You can trust Him and depend upon Him to lead you and guide by the Blessed Holy Spirit. He cannot and will not force you to love Him, but He loves you with an unconditional Love.

No one else will ever care for you like Jesus. He loved so so much that He left Heaven's glory to come down to this earth to sacrifice Himself and purchase your soul from damnation and Hell.

The Bible says, "For when we were yet without strength (hopeless), in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; Yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His BLOOD, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 

"For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life." (Rom.5: 5-10)

No wonder  St. John would exclaim: "We love Him because He first loved us." (1 John 4: 8-19) Amen.
