Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” (Tit 1:2).

For whom is the promise of eternal life? It has been promised to every human being before the world began; no one is predestinated for hell fire. If God had per-destinated only some people for heaven, He could have sent His only begotten Son to die for only those people. But it says, “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Please note the words “whosoever believeth”. The Lord wants all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth (I Tim 2:4).

“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11: 28). Jesus didn’t say, “Come unto Me, all you who are predestinated for heaven.” Then again we see Him inviting, “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink” (Jn 7:37).“Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out,” He says (Jn 6: 37).

Dear reader, if you ever thought you were destined by God for hell-fire, you are in the trap of the devil. Jesus died for the salvation of everyone. You are called for heaven. Therefore believe the Word, accept the truth and dedicate yourself to live for Jesus. Hurry, for you  may be delaying the Coming of the Lord. For, “the Lord is not slack concerning His promise… but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Pet 3:9)
