Last Fig Tree
He told them a parable. "See the fig tree, and all the trees. When they are already budding, you see it and know by your own selves that the summer is already near. Even so you also, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near. Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things are accomplished. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away." — Luke 21:29-33

How to be Saved
The Bad News
Psalm 9:17: "The wicked shall be turned into Hell." Whether you believein Hell or not, it is still true. That's why you must be saved. Saved from what?Saved from HELL!Revelation 20:15 "...whosoever was not found written in the book of life wascast into the LAKE OF FIRE." Will you be one of those cast into the LAKE OFFIRE? You don't have to be.Jesus Christ can save you. But you must first realize that you are lost. Will yougo to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test: Have you ever lied, stolen, orused God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for herhas already committed adultery with her in his heart.” If you have done thesethings, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart, and theBible warns that one day God will punish you in Hell. But God is not willing thatany should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law and Jesus paid their fine by dying onthe cross in their place. God shed his blood for there’s, he transferred hisrighteousness for their death penalty. This means that God can legally dismiss theircase: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, thatwhoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
The Good News
To be saved, a person must TRUST THE BLOOD of Jesus Christ, whichHe shed at the cross, as sufficient to SAVE his SOUL. God will not accept ourworks, he will only accept those who receive his gift of love by faith. God is theJUSTIFIER, we cannot justify ourselves. We must come to God and trust him tobe saved. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God iseternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." You have a choice. You can try to earnyour way to HEAVEN by rejecting the blood sacrifice of Jesus, or you can takeGod's free gift of eternal life by FAITH. What will it be?
