Rev 13:16-18: "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666."
Rev 14:9-12: "Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
God created us in His own image, as a sovereign entity with a will of our own, God forces Himself upon no one! That is why we are responsible for the choices we make. Our first ancestors Adam and Eve wrongly exercised their freedom of choice when they obeyed Satan in Paradise. This is called the fall. As a result, all of humanity are born in sin as we all inherit a fallen and sinful nature from our parents at birth. By nature we make the wrong choices -- for Satan and the Antichrist. By nature we will all receive the mark of the Antichrist unless we are redeemed and committed to the truth of God's Word.
God wants you to make an irrevocable choice for Him today! He is waiting for you to make a voluntary choice of your own free will to accept Him as the Lord of your life. He wants to enter into a personal relationship with you -- more than that, He wants to be your GOD -- who saves you from sin and Satan, prepares you for heaven, carries you through the tribulations of life and brings you safely to Himself -- by an act of your personal choice.
Are you willing to make an irrevocable choice to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? If not -- you will shortly be forced by the Antichrist to make an irrevocable choice against Him! The choice is still yours -- but you don't have much time. While you still have freedom to choose, I beg you, make a choice for Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord today!
God the Father sent His only begotten Son into this world by taking the punishment for SIN upon Himself, and to die a substitutionary death on the Cross of Calvary for the sin of the entire world in your and my place.
Jesus Christ rose again from the dead on the third day and ascended into heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us -- from where He will come again soon as judge of the world -- to raise and collect His redeemed unto eternal life, and condemn the unbelieving world unto eternal death.
Through His substitutionary death on the Cross of Calvary Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice and paid the full penalty for your sin and the sin of the entire world, fully satisfying God's righteous demand that SIN be punished by death. Through the shedding of His blood He fulfilled God's legal demand for reconciling man to God and breaking the power of Satan and SIN.
Through His resurrection from the dead Jesus Christ broke the power of Satan who held the power of death, legally stripping him from his authority over the human race, rising as Conqueror over SIN, Satan and hell! Simultaneously He restored for you and me God's purpose in creation and our eternal position as co-heirs with, and Bride of Christ.
Joh 3:16,17: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
Phi 2:5-11: "... Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond servant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
You have to personally accept and believe the following:
You were physically born, and are a sinner because you inherited a sinful nature from Adam and Eve as a result of the fall. Therefore, you were born in a broken relationship with God. Rom 3:23: "... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, ..."
Jesus Christ paid the penalty for your sin on the Cross of Calvary through the shedding of His blood, death and resurrection. Through His redemptive work on the cross you may be justified and reconciled with God, and this justification and reconciliation is offered to you as a free gift by God through Jesus Christ. Rom 5:18: "Therefore, as through one man's offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life." Eph 2:8,9: "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."
This free gift of God must be received by you through a voluntary act of your Will by faith in prayer, after which regeneration will follow as an act of God and proof of your acceptance by Him as His child. Joh 1:12: "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name ..."
This voluntary act of your will by faith in prayer must contain at least these three elements:
CONFESSION - that you are sinner, that you have sinned, and that you deserve and are destined for eternal death - Joh 1:9: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.";
REPENTANCE - you must turn your back on your life of sin and be prepared to walk away from it - Act 3:19: "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord .."; and
FAITH - you must fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and trust Him to save you from the penalty, but also from the power of sin. You must trust Him with your entire life - Heb 11:6: "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
If any one of the above three elements are wanting, regeneration will not occur.
If you pray the simple prayer below with sincerity and all the earnestness of your heart by turning your back on sin, you will be born again and the Holy Spirit will come and dwell in your heart.
You may also pray in your own words, but it is important that you pray aright and that you mean what you pray. Jesus said in Joh. 6:37: “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, thank You that You died on the cross of Calvary in my place.
I confess that I am a sinner who needs Your salvation, forgiveness and cleansing.
Please forgive my sin and cleanse my heart with Your precious blood.
Please come and live in my heart, and make me Your child, restoring Your purpose in my life.
I accept You as my personal Saviour from this moment.
I believe the Bible as Your inspired Word and I take You on Your Word by faith.
I submit myself fully to Your authority and the authority of Your Word and I crown you as the Lord of my life.
Please take full control of my life and make me a new person.
I thank You that You have answered my prayer!
If you have prayed this prayer with a sincere heart and active faith, you may now be absolutely sure of your salvation:
You have been saved by grace through faith and your sins are forgiven! 1 Joh 1:9: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."; Eph 2:8,9: "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."
You are now standing in a personal and living relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ, the Son. Joh 1:12: "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name"
You have eternal life through Jesus Christ and can be absolutely sure of your salvation and eternal destination in heaven! 1 Joh 5:11-13: "And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God."
You may be absolutely sure that you are saved from eternal death and hell! Joh 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
