HE WHO DIES WITH THE MOST TOYS, STILL DIES!
SETTING: You are in the home and at the bedside of a dying man who has but a few hours to live. He reaches out with his hand and takes your wrist with a very firm grip and won’t let go. He says to you, «I know I am dying and I don’t want to go to hell, what must I do to be saved?» He has no phone and there is no time to go for help.
QUESTION: According to the Word Of God, what would be the only appropriate answer?
NOTE: To use the following set of verses the soul winner only has to remember the first verse. Along side the first verse write a reference to the next verse and then repeat the procedure.
Example: Along side Hebrews 9:27 write Revelation 20:11-15 along side Revelation 20:11-15 write Roman 3:10-18 along side Roman 3:10-18 write Roman 3:22-26 and so forth…
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away: and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Romans 3:10-18 As it is written, There is NONE righteous, no, NOT ONE. There is NONE that understandeth, there is NONE that seeketh after God. They are ALL gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is NONE that doeth good, no, NOT ONE. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways: and the way of peace have they not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes.
Romans 3:22-26 Even the righteousness of God WHICH IS BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is NO difference: FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Romans 6:20-23 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
Acts 17:28-31 For in HIM we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this IGNORANCE God winked at; but NOW COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD.
II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT willing that any should perish, but that ALL should come to REPENTANCE.
Revelation 3:19-20 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and REPENT. Behold I stand at the door, and knock: if ANY MAN hear my voice, and OPEN THE DOOR, I will COME IN TO HIM, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Luke 18:9-14 And he spake this parable unto certain which TRUSTED in THEMSELVES that they were righteous. and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying GOD BE MERCIFUL TO ME A SINNER. I tell you, this man went down to his house JUSTIFIED rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exhalted.
John 10:7-11 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.
John 6:35-37 And Jesus said unto them, I am the BREAD OF LIFE: he that cometh to me SHALL NEVER HUNGER; and he that believeth on me SHALL NEVER THIRST. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I WILL IN NO WISE CAST OUT.
Romans 10:9-13 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. For WITH THE HEART man believeth unto righteousness; and WITH THE MOUTH confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that CALL UPON HIM. For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.
Acts 16:25-31 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, and brought them out, and said,
Sirs, WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
And they said,
BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED,
and thy house.
I Corinthians 15:1-4
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you
which I preached unto you,
which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved,
if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you,
unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
Christ died for our sins
according to the scriptures;
he was buried,
he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is
«The Saviour of the world?»
If you do,
Have you asked Him, specifically, to save you?
If you haven’t,
Why haven’t you?
You Must Ask HIM To Save You!
ANSWER: You must have the man pray and ask God to be MERCIFUL TO HIM for his sins and then he must CALL on the NAME of the Lord (Jesus Christ) and receive Him (Jesus Christ) as his Lord and Saviour.
