Be aware of God’s presence
When we repent of our sins and accept Jesus to be our Saviour, God through His Holy Spirit opens up the way for God to communicate to us spiritual messages that will help us to become Christians here on this earth through Jesus.
In the Old Testament days this was not possible for mankind. God communicated to mankind through chosen prophets. Hebrews 1:1 says, “God spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,” who were special chosen men of God.
But, in the New Testament days, which is our days on earth, Hebrews 1:2 says God “Hath in these last days spoken to us by his Son…who is the heir of all things…also he made the worlds.”
Then we are told that Jesus is “the brightness of God’s glory…the express image of his person, upholding all things of God…when he, Jesus, died for all our sins. Jesus is now on right hand of God in Heaven (verse 3) watching over us on earth, as we choose to believe in Jesus and follow Him as our Saviour.
God has given to Jesus a more excellent name than all other beings on earth or in heaven. God, our creator, says this about Jesus: “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee…I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son.” (verse 5) God has given to us a Saviour from our sins. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16,17)
It is wonderful to know that we are living in the time period when our soul can be saved when we die, by believing and accepting Jesus to be our Saviour. Because of this, we do not have to fear physical death when it comes to our bodies. God has sent His message of salvation, and His act of saving power for all of us through His Son Jesus Christ. We must believe and accept Jesus to be our personal Saviour from our sins. Then we will be ready to die our physical death and receive our spiritual life.
