    « For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? »
    (Mark 8:36)


    So, as much as there is in me, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you, for I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: because it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes!

    As it is written in the Holy Scriptures, all human beings born after Adam are sinners and have been appointed to face the eternal judgment of God of the last day.
    But the good news (the Gospel) is that God sent his Son Jesus Christ to pay the price of sin for his people (the elects) by sacrificing his life and shedding his precious blood on the cross of Calvary, then He was buried and on the third day after his death He resurrected unto eternal life, then He ascended to the highest of heavens to sit on the right hand of the throne of God the Father and reign forever.
    If you believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and his sacrifice on the cross of Calvary for the payment of your sins and also in his burial and resurrection, your sins shall be forgiven and you shall be saved from the eternal judgment of God, and therefore, you will be exempt from spending your eternity in the eternal fire of hell, and Jesus will bring you to heaven forever; all of this, only if you have truly believed from your heart in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and in what He did for the sinners He came to save.
    But if you do not believe in Jesus Christ, your sins shall not be forgiven and you shall not be saved from the eternal judgment of God; therefore, you will spend your eternity in the lake of fire as the eternal punishment for your sins together with the devil (Satan) and his angels, and this is called the second death.

    The glorious Gospel of Christ has just been preached to you.
    May God by His Will, open your heart to receive and believe in the Truth, so that you might be forgiven and saved.

    “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
    In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
    Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
    (1 John 4:8-10)

    “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
    (Matthew ‪1:21‬)

    “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
    (John ‪3:36‬)

    “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
    (Romans ‪6:23‬)

    You can read the King James Bible (Authorized Version 1611 - Pure Cambridge Edition), so you will discover who is the Lord Jesus Christ and what He did for those He came to save.
