For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the dayofsalvation I have helped you.” Behold, nowis the accepted time; behold, nowisthedayofsalvation.
Now, right now is the acceptable time to be saved from sin. Right now. And the effects of being saved from your sins can be yours RIGHT NOW.
It is not a matter of dying and going to heaven…but a Salvation to be had right now. And the opposite is also true. Have no fear about dying and going to a lost eternity in Hell for Hell is also RIGHT NOW.
For if you do NOT have Jesus you are in torment right now. For your heart yearns to know God but your mind turns you away from Him. And without Jesus you are dead in trespasses and sins. Without Jesus you have no hope RIGHT NOW….let alone after you depart. Without Jesus you are already condemned and in Hell.
But with Jesus you are already lifted up into heavenly places in Him….RIGHT NOW! With Jesus in you you have become a child of God and right now are His, though you walk through this wilderness by faith calling those things that be not as if they are. Heaven is in the believers heart.
Today is the acceptable time to enter heaven through belief in Jesus Christ. And as soon as you do, heaven enters you and you enter heaven. Hell departs from your heart, though it will still try to attack you from the outside. You will have changed identities and citizenship. You will have become a new creation in Christ Jesus and a member of the kingdom of God. You will be translated out of the kingdom of darkness and conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love–JESUS. Al this takes place for real in your heart for that is where Heaven is in this current age.
When you have repented and are calling Jesus your Lord and Savior the sounds of heaven fill your spirit with joy and gladness. Your soul is lifted up out of the bondage of sin…and your body begins to experience the touch of heaven as your spirit overflows with His power and love.
Thus while here in the wilderness we sing the refrain David wrote….
The Lordis my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.[literally:for a length of days]
The issue is not when you die you will go to Heaven or Hell. No–the issue is you are in Hell NOW!! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved NOW from your sins…for if you do not believe that He is Lord and Christ you shall die in your sins. In other words you are in the torment of Hell already if you are still controlled by your sins.
But there is freedom and life for you today–while it still called today. While you are still alive in your body it is today , it is NOW….and Now is the acceptable time for you to call upon the Lord Jesus and receive the reconciliation. Receive the forgiveness of all your sins TODAY!
“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”Hebrews 3:15
Today I declare to you that TODAY you can be saved, restored to God and forgiven. Today, RIGHT NOW you can leave Hell behind and enter into LIFE in Jesus Christ.
