How to Find Eternal Life

11390094_968828946513546_3817218908514737680_n-2Maybe you are not sure if you would go to heaven when you die. Salvation is a wonderful experience and leads to a fulfilling life. I accepted Jesus into my life over forty years ago, and I wouldn’t trade my relationship with God for anything.

If you are not sure and want to receive Jesus into your life as your personal Savior and Lord, then here is how. Read the following, together with the Bible verses, and with a sincere heart pray the prayer at the end. It will change your life forever. It did mine, and I have never regretted it. Jesus helps me every day of my life, and I know He will help you too.
How to Find Eternal Life

  • God loves you – “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins”
    (1 John 4:10).
  • You have sinned – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
  • The result of sin is death and separation from God – “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
  • Jesus died for your sins – “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
  • Jesus is the way to eternal life – “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6).
  • Heaven is a free gift – It can’t be earned or deserved. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faithand this not from yourselves, it is the gift of Godnot by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • Receive Jesus today as your Savior – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Admit that you are a sinner and can’t get to heaven yourself. Be willing to turn from your sin. Believe that Jesus died for you on the cross. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come into your life.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You are God and You died for my sins. Forgive me for my sins. I now invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank you for the free gift of eternal life. In Your name I pray, amen.

After receiving Jesus as your personal Savior, it is important to develop your relationship with Him. He loves you and desires an intimate relationship with you. You can learn more about growing in your relationship with God on the Intercessors Arise website.

Captured by God in the Prayer Room

11295703_964568553606252_1126736528200237369_n It happened one night in our one-month House of Prayer in southern Spain when the pastors were praying in the prayer room. The House of Prayer was taking place in a large hotel called the Solana Hotel, and a room was designated as the prayer room.

During that month of prayer a non-Christian named Allison, a hotel employee, was hosting the coffee and food bar. She’s an attractive British woman about forty years old who relocated to Spain with her husband Matthew because of the warm weather and sunshine. They had been through many difficulties, the most recent being a disappointing conflict with Jose, the owner of the hotel Solana. Their heavy drinking evidenced the pain and confusion they faced. During the weeks of the 24/7 prayer in the Solana, some of us would chat with them, answering their many questions.

They felt the love, peace, and joy among us. Allison listened attentively to what we were praying and watched as we praised and adored God in worship. We held large and small prayer meetings right in front of the coffee bar area where she worked. We prayed for God to reveal Himself to her heart. We could see a change in her face during the month.

One night at the end of the month, the local pastors were having their third all-night prayer vigil in the prayer room. Allison could resist no longer. She was drawn by the power of the Holy Spirit into the prayer room at about 1:30 A.M. She went over to my husband, Norm, and asked, “Will you pray for me?” His first thought was, “How are we going to pray with her here?” Probably many of us would have thought, “Isn’t this a bit inappropriate to come in and interrupt the pastor’s prayer meeting?” But as soon as Allison sat down she started crying, “Jesus help us! Jesus help us!” 

This brought the quickest answer to prayer. 

Norm said to her, “Allison, do you believe you are a sinner?” She answered, “Yes.” He then asked, “Do you believe Jesus died for your sins?” Again she answered, “Yes.” As he led her in a prayer to receive the Lord, a pastor had his hand on her head. She later said she felt a warmth come into her body.

We all saw a great joy in Allison the next day. Her life was radically changed. She was drawn into the prayer room through the adoration, praise, and prayer of God’s people. She could not resist the beauty she saw because through his people she saw Christ. She knew that He was what she needed in her life.

This was the first fruits of what we will see in the prayer room. The lost are going to be drawn like a magnet to the beauty of Christ through the praise and adoration of His people. In the coming days we shall see multitudes saved in the prayer room. They will be drawn by the presence of God that abides there.
