WOULD YOU LIKE A ‘TRICK OR A TREAT’?




No one likes to be tricked! But did you know that there is someone who wants to trick you? The devil is a liar.
 
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:44(KJV)
 
 
He wants you to believe that you don't need to think about where you will go when you die. But the truth is that "It is appointed unto every man once to die and after the judgement. You never know when your going to face God. It could be this very day! Are you ready to meet Him?
 
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Hebrews 9:27(KJV)
 
 
The devil also wants you to believe that you will go to heaven as long as you are a good person. This is also a trick! The truth is that " There is none righteous"!
 
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Romans 3:10(KJV)
 
The Bible tells us that if we have broken even one of God's commandments, we are guilty of breaking all His laws.

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
James 2:10(KJV)
 
 
God's standard is perfection and no human has ever met up to that requirement. For all have sinned.
 
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 3:23(KJV)
 
This is where the treat comes in! Even though God cannot allow sin in His presence and we can never measure up to His standard and He was willing to take the punishment that we deserved. For He (God) hath made (Jesus) to be sin for us.
 
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:21(KJV)
 
Jesus, God's perfect son, took your sins upon Himself. He allowed Himself to be crucified. God judged your sin through the death of His Son.
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:16-17(KJV)
 
Jesus died and three days later, He rose again from the grave, proving that He is God and that He has the power to save from sin. He said, “I am the resurrection and the life.
 
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
John 11:25(KJV)
 
 
The Bible says:
That 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.
Romans 10:9(KJV)
 
Wouldn’t you rather reject the tricks the devil is trying to play on you or accept the free gift of eternal salvation that Jesus offers to you instead?
 
You simply need to:
1. Admit you are a sinner. Tell God that you have broken His commandments.
2. Believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven. He died to take the punishment of your sins and rose again to give you eternal life with Him.
3. Call on Jesus and ask Him to forgive your sins and give you the eternal life that He offers freely.
 
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:13(KJV)
 
With Blessing in Christ,
 
David & Gay
