TO MAKE JESUS THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE!
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU STAND WITH GOD?
If you have never made Jesus The LORD of your life, then you are separated from God through sin. God loves you so much He gave His only begotten Son for you. You are the reason He sent Jesus to the cross John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. “2 Corinthians 5:21 says God made Jesus, whos knew no sin, to be sin for us Jes is the spotless Son of God. He knew no sin, but God made Him to be sin for us. Sin was the reason Jesus came to earth, He died on Calvary’s Cross and went to hell for one reason to pay the price for your and my sin. Once that price was paid, Jesus was raised from the dead, triumphant over satan, and the sin problem was forever taken care of.
God is not holding your sin against you. He sent Jesus to the cross as your substitute, He paid the sin debt. He became sin for you so you could become His righteousness. Now you can receive the credit for what He did in your place (Isaiah 53:3-5
The price has been paid, but it’s not automatic. You must choose to accept what He did for you and receive Him as your personal Savior and LORD. If you have never done so, choose Him now. Repent of your sin (turn totally from it) and pray this prayer. When you do, the power of God will make you a new creation in Christ Jesus.
GOD loves YOU and wants you to have a happy, joyful, and abundant life. He sent Jesus to die for you and take your place. He has forgiven you of your sins; but you must believe it.
"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." -John 3:17
All YOU have to do is accept Him (JESUS) as Your LORD & SAVIOR. There is only have one sin that will keep You out of heaven and that's the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ as Your Personal LORD & SAVIOR. Accept Him today. Pray this prayer aloud and mean it from your heart.
Verse 9 "That if though shalt confess with they mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, Thou shalt be saved."
Verse 10 "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;please and with the mouth confessions is made unto salvation."
1 John 1:9 says:
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
JESUS, I CONFESS THAT YOU ARE MY LORD AND SAVIOR. I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT GOD RAISED YOU FROM THE DEAD. BY FAITH IN YOUR WORD, I RECEIVE SALVATION NOW. THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME I BELIEVE THIS MOMENT THAT I AM SAVED.
AMEN! YOU ARE NOW REBORN! SAY: I AM A CHRISTIAN-A CHILD OF ALMIGHTY GOD! I AM SAVED! (now go and tell somebody and email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org)

Why It’s Important for Believers to Pray in Tongues.
#1: When you pray in tongues, you pray directly to God from your spirit. This is your own personal prayer language which you can use to pray and communicate with God.
1 Corinthians 14:2: “For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit.”
#2: When you pray in tongues, you are spiritually edified and strengthened.
1 Corinthians 14:4: “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself...”
#3: When you pray in tongues, you magnify and praise God from your spirit.
Acts 10:46: “For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.” (NKJV)
John 4:23–24: “Yet a time is coming and has come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth...”
#4: When you pray in tongues, you pray Spirit-directed prayers. The Holy Spirit directs your prayers according to God’s perfect will. You pray as led by the Holy Spirit.
Romans 8:26–27: “...the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”
5 Steps to Receive the Baptism of the Spirit with the Evidence of Speaking in Tongues.
#1:You must first be born again (See John 3:3 and Acts 2:38).
#2: You must believe that this precious gift—this promise—is for you.
Acts 2:39: “The promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
Acts 2:17–18: “In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.’”
#3:You must desire the gift of the Spirit.
John 7:37–39: “...Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; because the Holy Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” (NKJV)
#4: You must ask for it.
Luke 11:13: “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
#5: You must do the speaking.
Acts 2:4: “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit enabled them.” Also, see Is. 28:11-12.
TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
After Jesus Christ was raised from the dead and before He ascended into heaven, He left us this promise: “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you shall be My witnesses…[throughout] the earth” (Acts 1:8). The Holy Spirit is the One who endures us with power for our Christian walk and to do the works of Jesus (John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.)
God has already sent the Holy Spirit. He came to earth on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2). Now it is up to you to receive Him into you life. Once you are born again, you can receive the power of the Holy Spirit just as you received Jesus-by faith in God’s WORD. All you must do is ask Him. Jesus said, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (Luke 11:13). The Holy Spirit will empower you with God’s own power! You need His power working in you-ask Him now.
PRAYER TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
My heavenly Father, I am a believer. I am Your child, and You are my Father. Jesus is my LORD. I believe with all my heart that Your WORD is true. Your WORD says that if I will ask, I will receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, so in the Name of Jesus Christ my LORD I am asking You to fill me to overflowing with your precious Holy Spirit. Baptize me in the Holy Spirit. Because of Your WORD, I believe that I now receive, and I thank You for it. I believe that the Holy Spirit is within me, and by faith I accept Him. Now, Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise my God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance.
