Dear   friend,   this   is   perhaps   one   of   the   most   important questions   you   could   ever   consider.   Why?   Because   God created   you   to   live   forever,   and   you   will   spend   eternity, either   with   Him   or   in   a   place   of   eternal   torment.   Perhaps you   may   be   wondering   if   you   can   know   for   sure,   where you   will   spend   eternity.   This   little   tract   is   written   to   help you   answer   that   question,   so   you   can   know   for   sure where you will go when you die. In   order   for   us   to   know   anything   for   sure,   we   must have    a    final    word,    a    Final    Authority.     Take    Hell     for instance.      A   person   could   say,   “I   believe   hell   is   a   real place    of    torment.”     Another    could    say,    “But    I    don’t believe   there   is   such   a   place,”    and   yet   a   third   person could   shout   out,   “Sure,   I   believe   in   hell,   this   is   hell   right here    where    we    are    living    now!”        Without    a    Final Authority,   we   are   left   for   now,   with   the   opinions   of   men who   often   disagree   and   surely   do   not   know   everything. In   the   Bible,    Jesus   said   in    Luke   16:22-23,“…   the   rich man   also   died,   and   was   buried;   And   in   hell   he   lifted   up his eyes, being in torments …” Is there a Final Authority? There   sure   is,   God   Himself   has   given   it   to   us.    What   He says   or   has   said   is   sure,   certain,   unchangeable,   absolute, and   permanent.   God   has   chosen   to   provide   us   with   a written   word    from   Him   which   will   never   change.   It   is called   both   the   Holy   Scriptures   and   the   Word   of   God! For   English   speaking   people,   it   is   the   Authorized   King James    Version    of    1611    (KJV).    Most    modern    Bibles compare   their   translations   to   the   KJV   so   people   will   buy them.   What   they   fail   to   tell   the   buyer   is,   “buyer   beware” –   the   words   of   their   translations   are   mostly   their   own. Just   look   inside   the   front   cover   and   you   will   find   their copyright   notice   saying   what   you   can   and   cannot   do with   the   words ,   of   their   so   called   Holy   Bible .   The   KJV   is God’s   Word   made   up   of   God’s   Words,   and   it   can   not   be copyrighted by anyone. Three   times   in   the   Bible   God   says   not   to   add   to    or   take away   from    His   words ,   and   what   the   consequences   would be   for   anyone   who   does .   In   Revelation   22:   18   &   19,   God says,    “For    I    testify    unto    every    man    that    heareth    the words    of   the   prophecy   of   this   book,   If   any   man   shall   add unto   these   things,   God   shall   add   unto   him    the   plagues that   are   written   in   this   book:      And   if   any   man   shall   take away    from   the   words    of   the   book   of   this   prophecy,   God shall   take   away   his   part    out   of   the   book   of   life ,   and   out   of the   holy   city,   and   from   the   things   which   are   written   in this   book.”      Just   two   chapters   earlier   in   Rev.   20:14-15, God   had   said,   “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.” I   trust   you   can   see   from   these   verses,    that   when   a person   takes   away   from   God’s   Words,   God   takes   away his   part    (their   name)   out   of   the   Book   of   Life ,   and   they will   be   cast   into   the   Lake   of   Fire.      That   is   the   #   1   reason why   we   stay   with   the   KJV.      Reason   #   2,   we   want   to   know what   God   did   say,   rather   than   what   some   modern   day scholars   or   translators   think   he   should   have   said.   Many today   say   something   like,   use   the   New   International Version   (NIV)    or   the   New   King   James   (NKJV)    because they   are   easier   to   understand.”    What   they   fail   to   tell   you is   that   the   NKJV   is   not   a   King   James   Bible   at   all,   it   is   a counterfeit,   with   over   24,000   words    less   just   for   starters. The    NIV    is    worse    yet    with    over    64,000     words     less, including   16   complete   verses    like   Matthew   18:11   &   Acts 8:37,   which   are   taken   away .   If   you   desire   to   know   more about   this,   please   contact   us   directly   or   visit   our   website at: for many articles & links.     Look    at    what    God    says    about    His    Words    in    these verses.    (2    Timothy    3:16),    All    scripture     is    given    by inspiration   of   God   …”   (2   Peter   1:20-21),   “Knowing   this first,   that   no   prophecy   of   the   scripture   is   of   any   private interpretation.   For   the   prophecy   came   not   in   old   time   by the   will   of   man:   but   holy   men   of   God    spake   as   they   were moved   by   the   Holy   Ghost .”   Psalm   119:89   says,   “For   ever, O   LORD,   thy   word   is   settled   in   heaven.”   In   Psalm   12:6-7, the   Bible   says,   “The   words   of   the   LORD   are    pure   words : as    silver   tried   in   a   furnace   of   earth,   purified   seven   times . Thou    shalt    keep    them ,    O    LORD,    thou    shalt    preserve them    from   this   generation   for   ever. ”   Furthermore,      the Bible   says   in   Psalm   138:2,   “… for   thou   hast   magnified    thy word   above all thy name . Friend,   God’s   Word    is   very   sure .   You    can   count   on   it. It    is    forever    settled.    It    does    not    change.    If    you    have understood   our   reasoning   up   to   this   point,   you   can   see why   a   Bible   that   has   been   changed   is   worthless,   and   can not   be   considered   a   final   authority   of   any   kind.   Most   of the   100   plus   English   Bibles   have   “Holy   Bible”   on   the front   cover   to   make   buyers   think   they   are   buying   God‘s Word.    The    King    James    Version    is    the    Word    of    God without   error,   and   it   has   been   His   Final   Authority   for English   Speaking   people   for   nearly   400   years.      At   this point    I   hope   you   can   understand   why,   what   we   have   to say   is   not   the   most   important   thing,   but   rather,   what does    God    Himself    say    in    His    Word?        I    will    now    list several    verses    from    God’s    Word,    which    can    help    you know   for   sure    how   to   be   prepared   for   the   hereafter,   for Eternity. The Word (Jesus Christ) is God (Genesis    1:1),    “In    the    beginning    God    created    the heaven   and   the   earth.”   (John   1:1),   In   the   beginning    was the   Word ,   and   the   Word   was   with   God ,   and   the   Word was   God .”   (John   1:3),   All   things    were   made   by   him ;   and without   him   was   not   any   thing   made   that   was   made.” (John   1:10),   He   was   in   the   world ,   and   the   world   was made    by    him ,    and    the    world    knew    him    not.”    (John 1:14),“And   the   Word   was   made   flesh ,   and   dwelt   among us ,   (and   we   beheld   his   glory,   the   glory   as   of   the   only begotten    of    the    Father,)    full    of    grace    and    truth.”    In Matthew   28:19   Jesus   said ,   “Go   ye   therefore,   and   teach all   nations,   baptizing   them   in   the   name   of   the   Father , and   of   the   Son ,   and   of   the   Holy   Ghost :”   Again,   in   Mark 16:15-16    Jesus    said,“…Go    ye    into    all    the    world,    and preach   the   gospel   to   every   creature.      He   that   believeth and   is   baptized   shall   be   saved;   butt   he   that   believeth   not shall    be    damned. ”   (John   20:30-31),   “And   many   other signs    truly    did    Jesus    in    the    presence    of    his    disciples, which   are   not   written   in   this   book:   But   these   are   written , that   ye   might   believe    that   Jesus   is   the   Christ,   the   Son   of God;   and   that   believing    ye   might   have   life   through   his name.”   (John   21:25),   “And   there   are   also   many   other things    which    Jesus    did,    the    which,    if    they    should    be written   every   one,   I   suppose   that   even   the   world   itself could    not    contain    the    books    that    should    be    written. Amen.” We have Sinned Against God (Romans   3:23),   “For   all   have   sinned    and   come   short of   the   Glory   of   God.”      (Isaiah   64:6),“But   we   are   all   as   an unclean   thing,   and   all   our   righteousnesses   are   as   filthy rags ;   …   and   our   iniquities,   like   the   wind,   have   taken   us away.”      (Ezekiel   18:4),   “Behold,   all   souls   are   mine ;   as   the soul   of   the   father,   so   also   the   soul   of   the   son   is   mine:   the soul   that   sinneth ,   it   shall   die. ”      (1   John   1:8),“If   we   say that   we   have   no   sin,   we   deceive   ourselves,   and   the   truth is   not   in   us.”      (Romans   6:23),   “For   the   wages   of   sin   is death,   but    the   gift   of   God    is   eternal   life    through   Jesus Christ   our   Lord.”      (John   1:12),   “But   as   many   as   received him ,   to   them   gave   he   power   to   become   the   sons   of   God , even   to   them   that   believe   on   his   name :”      (John   3:18), He   that   believeth   on   him    is   not   condemned :   but   he   that believeth   not    is   condemned   already ,   because   he   hath   not believed    in   the   name   of   the   only   begotten   Son    of   God.”   (1 John   5:12-13),   “He   that   hath   the   Son    hath   life,   but   he that   hath   not   the   Son   of   God    hath   not   life.      These   things have   I   written   unto   you   that   believe   on   the   name   of   the Son of God, that ye may know   that ye have  eternal life.” Prepare To Meet Thy God (Proverbs   14:12),   “There   is   a   way    which   seemeth   right unto   a   man,   but   the   end   thereof    are   the   ways   of   death. (Rom.    14:11-12),“For    it    is    written,    As    I    live,    saith    the Lord    every   knee   shall   bow   to   me ,   and   every   tongue   shall confess   to   God .   So   then   every   one   of   us   shall   give   an account   of   himself         to   God .”   (Hebrews   9:27),   “And   as   it is   appointed   unto   men    once   to   die ,   but   after   this    the judgment: ”        (Rev.    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   was   the   book   of   life :   and   the dead   were   judged    out   of   those   things   which   were   written in    the    books     ...    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   in   the   book   of   life    was   cast   into the   lake   of   fire.”   (Psalm   2:11-12),   “Serve   the   LORD   with fear,   and   rejoice   with   trembling.   Kiss   the   Son,   lest   he   be angry,   and   ye   perish   from   the   way,   when   his   wrath   is kindled   but   a   little.   Blessed   are    all   they   that   put   their trust   in   him.”   (Acts      17:30-31),   “…   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 .” Jesus Christ is the Only Savior (1   Corinthians   1:18),   “For   the   preaching   of   the    cross    is   to them    that    perish    foolishness;    but    unto    us    which    are saved   it   is   the   power   of   God.”   (1   Cor.   1:21),   “…   it   pleased God    by   the   foolishness   of   preaching   to   save    them   that believe.”   (John   3:16),   “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. (Isaiah      53:5),      “But      he      was      wounded      for      our transgressions,    he    was    bruised    for    our    iniquities:”    (1 Peter   1:18-19),   “Forasmuch   as   ye   know   that   ye   were   not redeemed     with     corruptible     things     …     But     with     the precious   blood   of   Christ ,   as   of   a   lamb   without   blemish and   without   spot:”   (1   Peter   2:22-24),   “Who   did   no   sin   ... Who   his   own   self   bare    our   sins    in   his   own   body   on   the tree,    that    we,    being    dead    to    sins,    should    live    unto righteousness:   by   whose   stripes   ye   were   healed.”   (Titus 3:5),    “Not    by    works    of    righteousness    which    we    have done,    but    according    to    his    mercy    he    saved    us.”    (Acts 4:12),   “Neither   is   there   salvation   in   any   other:   for   there is    none    other    name     under    heaven    given     among    men, whereby   we   must   be   saved .”   (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 .” Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ - Now! (2   Corinthians   6:2),   “Behold   now    is   the   accepted   time ; behold   now    is   the   day   of   salvation .”   (Pr.   27:1),   “Boast   not thyself   of   to   morrow;   for   thou   knowest   not   what   a   day may   bring   forth.”   (Ro.   10:8-13),“But   what   sayeth   it?   The word   is   nigh   thee,   even   in   thy   mouth,   and   in   thy   heart: that   is,   the   word    of   faith,   which   we   preach ;   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   whosoever   shall call    upon    the    name    of    the    Lord     shall    be    saved.”    In Jeremiah    33:3,    God    says,    Call     unto    me ,    and    I     will answer    thee,    and    shew    thee    great    and    mighty    things, which    thou    knowest    not.    (Isaiah    55:6),    “Seek    ye    the LORD   while   he   may   be   found,   call    ye   upon   him   while   he is   near:”   (Isa.   55:7),   “Let   the   wicked   forsake   his   way,   and the   unrighteous   man   his   thoughts:   and   let   him   return unto   the   LORD,   and   he   will   have   mercy   upon   him;   and to   our   God,   for   he   will   abundantly   pardon.”   (Acts   16:30- 31),   “…   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.”  QUESTION!     Have    you    become    a    Believer    in    Jesus Christ.   Have   you   begun   to   feel   the   terrible   weight   of   your sin   that   is   upon   you,   and   cried   out   to   Him   like   the   man did   in   Luke   18:13?,   “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   …”   (Hebrews   11:6)   says,   “But   without   faith    it   is impossible    to    please    him:     for    he    that    cometh    to    God must   believe    that   he   is ,   and   that   he   is    a   rewarder   of   them that   diligently   seek   him .   My   friend,   seek   Him    until   you find   Him.   Take   God    at   His   Word    and   become   a   Believer right   now,   today,   like   God   says,   before   it   is   to   late.   For further   help,   please   call   us   at   (207)564-5500,   visit   our website   at   or   write   to   us   at   New Life   Baptist   Church,   2385   Dexter   Road,   Dover-Foxcroft, ME 04426.
