I have a question for you: do you want to go to Heaven?
Here's another: WILL you get there?
Let me tell you 1. Whether you
will go there and 2. If you find you're not on your way there, I'll tell you how to get there.
Only two kinds of people get to Heaven: perfect people, and forgiven sinners.
What is perfect? Well, not stealing regardless of how insignificant it may seem, not saying a single evil word against anyone - not to mention God sees our thought life. And like a judge in court, a penalty has to be paid when evil is done and laws are broken (e.g. if a murderer was let off in court there would be uproar so how much more God)?
In short - we arent perfect, at all. And rather than Heaven, God, if giving us justice, will have to make us pay for our crimes by death and eternal damnation in an everlasting fire and torment.
There is a way that we can be saved. Jesus - the Son of God - came down to live a perfect life without sin, conquering all evil and the devil's sinful, lustful traps that so easily ensnare us. Jesus overcame all of that, and then was sentenced to death on a cross.
While on the cross, God poured out the anger and wrath of sin on His Son - getting Jesus to pay OUR fine of damnation, unbearable pain and being separated from God. EVERY single evil thought, word or deed that doesnt line up with God' perfection, every sin you ever have committed or will commit knowingly or unknowingly, Jesus took the complete, undiluted wrath for.
And, like a fine in court, Jesus paying for it means that we can go free. Not just free, but we can experience God's love as all punishment was carried on the cross and crucified there for all who believe.
He rose again on the third day, demonstrating His sovereignity and innocence and power over not just the sins of this life, but DEATH.
GOD HAS POWER OVER DEATH.
There will come a day when Jesus will return and those who died believing in Him will rise from their graves will go to Heaven, and those who rejected His salvation, message and teachings will suffer Hell to pay their deserved fines for all eternity without a second chance.
He wants you to repent (turn away from your sin and pursue God's perfect intent for your life, striving in the opposite direction).
This is your chance now.
God has a plan for your life, a plan that involves you being recreated into the perfect moral image of Him as we were before the sin in the garden. He loves you and doesnt want you to suffer - Hw wants to show you mercy and show you what true love looks like. He suffered FOR you to set you free and you can walk in His strength, experiencing His love, being taught what it means to be part of His family.
He loves you and wants you to have faith in Him, letting Him take the wheel of your life (dont forget, when you're doing God's will you're doing the will of perfect love - when you follow God you can be certain that you are never doing the wrong thing- imagine how cleansing that feels).
What if I still sin when Ive accepted Christ's death and resurrection on my behalf?
Thats why Christ died. For your SIN. When God looks at you, striving towards Him or even falling, He sees the righteous life of Christ covering you in place of your current, sinful reality. For those who strive to turn from sin, regardless of the pitfalls, God sees Jesus's life in place of your inability, and His blood so that yours will never have to be shed for your sin.
Sound opposite? Thanks to our natural sinful nature, it likely does, but God knows our weakness and struggles and pitfalls with sin. THAT'S why He died for us. Just pray to God, tell Him you are struggling and are unsure - God can and will work with even the slightest desire within you to follow Him and be free from sin.
Ask Him to make you willing - if you are willing to be made willing, pray for it, simply shut your eyes and talk to Him.
When Satan knows people have left His camp, He will not take it lying down, He often tries harder with more trials and temptations but EVERY trial is Father-filtered, Satan cannot be anything beyond what God permits, and God will only allow things that will strengthen you or bring you closer to Him so long as you cling to Him and trust in the promises of His word.
Where do I start to learn about God's plan and His promises to me? Well, I'd advise you to FIRST read Matthew (or Luke if you want a more detailed account). Do it in stages and try and imagine the events and miracles as they really hapoened - the Bible is a true account after all.
And when you struggle and fall, kmow you can pray for forgiveness, dust yourself off again and get up because Jesus already bore our guilt and shame.
God wants FAITH from us, not legalistic works and outward piety, but FAITH. The gospel is faith alone in Christ alone, Christ already lived that perfect life FOR us, but the fruits of the spirit "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" are what come through true maturing faith and a relationship with the conquerer and overcomer of the world and its sin. Trials come to strengthen us and produce these fruits overtime. Its a lifelong process of faith and striving alongside God, but remember that Jesus is the ultimate foundation, the reason we are given Heaven through His soon return in the first place. If you lack faith (as i did for a long time) pray. God wants honesty from us and is not angry when we come to Him and pray for faith. All it takes is a little - Jesus said all it takes is faith "as small as a mustard seed", the smallest seed in the world. God will take it - give it to Him amd ask Him to make it grow. He desires to, He wants to and He will give strength and faith to His children in time when they ask Him.
So in short, WHEN - and note it says WHEN - we sin on our striving towards Gods will and life of love and service to others, Remember that God understands our faults and can sympathise with our weaknesses, He wants us to see, understand and walk in His perfect, unfailing love and strength rather than our own, because His love and His strength never fails.
If you want to let Jesus into your life, even to help you to take the first step, then read through this prayer here once to get the gist of it and then just say it - trust God and give it all to Him because He has a plan.
If you take a step - just a step - towards Him, He will take a step towards you.
Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven. At this moment I trust Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through the deep valley. Thank you for hearing this prayer.
In Jesus’ Name.
I lost my father from covid. It was so painful, this is the first time I've lost a parent, meanwhile years ago, two of my fathers' brothers died but he still looked so strong. It's tough facing all of this in my life, he'd usually be there for me, I'd usually joke with him. I can't stop crying, everytime I tried to he kept on getting in my mind. I lost him in November of 2020.. I miss you dad, you've done many things for me.
Remembering the days I would run from my dad
only to be with my friends but I guess that's how kids are
If I only I could share another moment with my dad I will spend it by telling
you how much I love you, miss you and thanking you for being so kind to me when
I was upset❤️ 😞
When our parents or child passes on, this is when we know we weren't ment to parish. October 28th 2020 10:30 pm my Daddy went home to God's arm's and a big piece of me went with him. The pain is almost unbearable I lost my best friend my strength, protection and my heart. Word's cannot express the bond and love myself and my Brother had with our Dad. Until we meet again I will be incomplete 🕊🕊🕊

Please tell your Dad how much you love them anytime your able to, it maybe awkward but you just never know when they’ll be gone. Never forget the Joy, Guidance or Love that they’ve given you & pass that on to your living family! Love & Miss you Daddy....see you someday in Heaven ❤️
I lost my dad when I was 13 almost 14 they said he died from a heart attack or stroke I don't remember but the last time I went out with him was to a amusement park after this he was going to tell me something before going home and he going to his house but I did not want to talk to him after this we left to our houses and at around 11 he died of a heart attack or stroke spend as much time as you can with your families and don't be like me that I did not listen to his last conversation
I... probably shouldn't be typing this now, but, this was the first Thanksgiving since my dad passed earlier this year, I spent the past year being his full time caregiver due to fucking cancer...please, love your dad's as long as you can, both parents really, things happen so fast and then they're gone..sorry...
Thank you for this video this video reminds me of my dad... he died 5 years ago in 2015.... me and my family came to visit him on thanksgiving... i still remember that i was his daddy girl... i was his fav kid... i love him and i miss him so much.. even tho he wont be with me. but i want him to know that i miss him and i love him.

Every one I’m just a 16 year old kid and I know the last thing you want to hear is a kid trying to give you words of wisdom, life is one of are biggest challenges it teaches us life skills it teaches us how to love and feel and please spend every time every second with the ones you love most enjoy life because right now there’s someone in a hospital bed begging god for the opportunity we have thank you ❤️
my dad passed when I was 4, I'm about to turn 13, I remember being 9 sleeping by my stepdad. And my bio dad visited me in my dream. He said "how old are you' i said "Hi daddy I'm 9" He looked at me and picked me up and said "Good Tianna, my princess, I know you will always succeed in life, cause your so smart." "promise me you'll never drink or smoke okay?" "okay" right when he kissed my forehead i woke up..........
4 months... it feels like yesterday you were still holding me in your arms and I was babbling about my dreams of becoming a professional wrestler, often times I ask myself, do I have what it takes? Am I good enough? Will I make him proud ? Then I think to myself about all the lessons, some where important, others not so much but it’s the love and the message behind everything, I promise you Dad I’ll will be champion , to honor you
i’ve never met my dad ever since i was about one. this morning i was told he passed away in an accident. this happened with my great grandmother too, i wanted to go see her and i didn’t. next morning i was told she passed. i need to start listening to these signs because i miss him so much and wish i could just hang out with him and get to know him better but now i can’t😢i can’t stop thinking about him. even though he’s almost like a stranger to me i love him so much
Only the one who lost can understand the true pain..its been almost a month since i lost my daddy still feels like it was yesterday only wen i talked to him..i danced with him..i touched him and its really heartbreaking to loose your dad at a young age..(i lost my dad due to covid) he is the strongest and the most loved person ever.i know you will always be that hidden light in life to sparkle it all again daddy..miss you so much❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
Today. Month back. You just left so sudden. Didn't even get to say Love you and hug you. Void you left is never going to be filled. My heart aches for you. My ears miss your voice. I keep looking at my phone waiting for your call. I'm left all alone without you. Love you Dad. Hope angels are treating you well and you are happy and content. Rest in peace Dad!
I am in so much pain just thinking about how little time I had to know you Dad and it went by so fast
Back then I was just a 7 years old kid who had no idea what losing a dad would be like but as I grew up there are days when I can't stand the pain of living 19 years without you
I'll look forward to the day when I'll see you again ❤
This finally broke me. I lost my Father last year, I don't think I ever really came to terms with it until I saw this. As an adopted child, I always felt so fortunate. When I lost him last year, I was numb, kissing his hand on his death bed from cancer at the age of 87, I do not think I came to terms with his loss....................until I saw this.
I had a cleansing cry, All I can say is at the time he died, I saw him behind my eyelids when I was in bed, he smiled, waved and was gone.
Call me an idiot, but the time I saw him was the time he died. I am not religious in the least, but this was genuine.
I feel for all of you who have lost your Father, I lost the best man I have ever known. I feel for all of you xxxxxxxxxxxx
Thank you for this video. Every sentence felt like it was written from my own heart. No love can compare to a child and his/her father. I lost my father just 2 months ago, and my heart still feels so empty without him. I keep hoping I’m just living a terrible nightmare, and that I will wake up soon. My heart hurts without you, daddy. The things I would do just to see you one last time... I just want to be close to you again... many times I wish my life was taken instead of yours
