If you just now finished speaking with God through that prayer with a genuine *sincerity* of your heart, rest assure, God has *heard* your prayer! Definitely, mark this moment as *Your* Very Special Day! Congratulations!! You are *now* Born from above - Born of the Spirit! In short, you've just now become what Jesus (Yeshua) Himself, has originally coined the words- Born Again!
W E L C O M E to the Family of God!
Once again, it was never about religion. You cannot have a relationship with religion. But you certainly can with a living Person. And that Person, is none other than The Victoriously Risen, One and Only Lord and Savior of mankind, The Son of God: Yeshua. Besides, Christ Himself, there's no one else in recorded history that's raised themselves from physical death, especially, *after* being buried 3 days!
The Bible teaches that man is *separated* from God because of sin. Tell one lie, you become a liar. Steal one item that doesn't belong to you, you become a thief. These are outward actions as a result of what's really going on inside of a person with wrong motives.
The root problem at its core is the *intentions* and self-centered attitude of the heart. Basically, at its root, sin is an active *rebellion* against a Holy God and against His moral standards of living. Sin is settling for something *less* better than God's best. God's Word (The Holy Bible) states in Romans 3:10, "As it is written, 'There is none righteous, no, not one'."
Even as Holy Scripture states, in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." And again, in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Indeed, God offers a permanent *solution* to mankind's problem of sin and as a bridge to get to Him - through His Son: Yeshua. And outside - apart from Christ - there really is no true, real and *lasting* hope. He alone is The *Only* True and Living Hope for *all* mankind.
Religion, good works, and philosophy is man's way of trying to reach God. Some people work so hard to try to gain God's favor when the simple fact is that *all* the work has already been done through Yeshua. From God's standpoint, all our efforts to do good works so we can gain God's favor are considered like garbage and completely *unacceptable* to Him. They're like filthy rags before a Holy and Righteous God Who demands absolute *Perfection*. As Scripture clearly reveals in Isaiah 64:6, "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags...' Even as Holy Scripture plainly states, in Titus 3:5, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he (Yeshua) saved us,.." Furthermore, there are erroneous concepts that man can become a "god". No where does the Bible teach this, but rather, the Bible clearly teaches that God became a man, as recorded in John 1:14. And God's preferred way of reaching man is exclusively through *relationship*. Yeshua, plainly states in Scripture, in John 5:24, "Whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life."
Additionally, God's Word (the Bible) teaches that man can neither earn or deserve salvation even on our best day. It is by grace through faith in Christ *only* that a person has *true* salvation. Nothing else is required beyond this.
As it clearly teaches and plainly states in Scripture, in Ephesians 2:8-9, "God saved you through faith (trust in Yeshua) as an act of kindness (grace). You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. It’s not the result of anything you’ve done, so no one can brag about it."
God took such extreme measures to make such a relationship possible by allowing His Son to pay a debt sinful man could not pay, and in doing so, pay a debt He did not owe.
God devised and executed a magnificently ingenious "Mission Impossible" Calculated Master Plan to rescue and save mankind from his dilemma through His Son, Yeshua.
Realize you've been created to: know God and make Him known! That is the very sole reason for your very existence. Even as you've now begun a very *REAL*, genuine relationship with God by receiving through prayer, His Son, Yeshua!
Salvation is *not* something to be achieved, but rather is Someone to be received. Scripture (God's Word, the Holy Bible) states in John 1:12, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become God's children, even to them that believe on His name."
Indeed, this is 100% The Real Deal! God's ultimate expression of His love for humanity and for all mankind was revealed and accomplished through His Son, Yeshua.
As Scripture clearly states in Romans 5:8, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." The cross was God's declaration to the world of His ultimate Love for us and for all mankind! Indeed, The Greatest Act of Amazing Grace and Selfless Love was Fully Displayed at The Cross of Our Victoriously Risen, Savior: Yeshua!!! Scripture states powerfully in, 1st 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."
Unfortunately, tomorrow is *never* promised to anyone. And because of man's problem of sin, death entered the world contaminating everything from humans to plant life (more info in Scripture - Romans 5:12). Which is why everything grows old and dies. But it was never meant to be this way from the beginning which was one main reason Yeshua, Himself, was born into this world: to finally put an *end* to both sin and death!
The Bible clearly teaches that death is an *enemy*. As it states in Scripture, in 1st Corinthians 15:26, "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." And that, one day, death itself will finally be dealt with and with absolutely good riddance! This is as specifically predicted in Scripture, both Revelation 20:14 and Revelation 21:4.
But presently, death is no respector of persons. There's absolutely no telling *when* this event could occur for anyone. For some, this event may come suddenly and unexpectedly. And this is definitely one reality *every* living person, most certainly, will encounter sooner or later. Make no mistake, there will come a time when you will finally take your very *last* breath on Earth: definitely, something to think about!
And many simply do *not* want to face up to this reality because the plain simple truth is they don't know any better: and most unfortunately, above all, they have no real hope, whatsoever, because they do *not* know Yeshua.
Moreover, generally most people erroneously believe that God sends people to Hell, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Scripture clearly records, in Matthew 25:41, Yeshua plainly states that Hell itself was specifically made for Satan and his angels. Hell was never made for human beings. It's only when people *reject* the Savior, the Son of God, Yeshua, that people end up there.
In other words, people send themselves to Hell for simply making the wrong, forebodingly dreadful and foolish choice to reject Christ. So, if you ever end up in Hell, *don't* blame God. There's really no one else to blame, all you need to do is simply check in the mirror, you'll then quickly find out who sent you there!
According to Scripture, in Hebrews 9:27, once a person dies *without* Christ, it is too *late*. This is literally the point of *no* return, as there is *no* going back, *no* recourse, and absolutely *no* second chances. Is it truly worth the gamble on saying, "I'll take my chances", especially, when Holy Scripture plainly teaches there are *NO* second chances *beyond* this lifetime?
Make no mistake, it will definitely *not* end well for those who refuse God's gift of complete forgiveness of sins, Eternal Life and *True* Hope. It is by God's goodness shown through Christ, and only through faith in God's Son alone, that man can receive complete forgiveness of sins. And you've only got just *one* shot to make it right. And it's only in *this* lifetime you have that chance. So, *don't* blow it! While alive, you must make the choice to believe whether or not Yeshua is exactly who He claimed to be: the one and *only* True Savior of the world.
Scripture clearly records Yeshua's statement in John 12:47, "And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world." Holy Scripture clearly teaches, in 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." Scripture also states, in 1st Timothy 2:5, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."
Furthermore, Scripture states that in Romans 10:9, "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." Even as Yeshua clearly warns in Scripture, in John 8:24, "...for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins."
Therefore, carefully consider the very seriousness of this matter, as your very decision about Christ will determine your final and *eternal* destination. And remember, if you make no decision at all, it's still a "no" decision from God's perspective. God is so generous and kind that He will *never* force anyone to go to Heaven. The beauty is that He gives us the *FREEDOM* of choice, as made clearly in Scripture - Deuteronomy 30:19.
Indeed, this is ONE Million Times % the *Real* Deal! And all this completely and absolutely for *FREE* without charge! Think about it! Getting this for this extraordinary deal - while alive and breathing - is something you'll want to grab while you can!
But to have an unknowing, let alone frighteningly *uncertain* viewpoint concerning death is a very sad state to be in, and cold, stark reality, for many who do *not* know God in a personal way.
However, the incredibly Amazing Good News is that it really doesn't have to be this way. If people only knew what God offers through His Son and what He has already done for them!
Remember, Yeshua states in John 3:16, "...so that anyone who believes in Him should not perish (die in your sins with separation from God, *never* to see His love or His light forever) but have eternal life."
Just imagine, picture for a moment, a world *without* any crying over death, sorrow, or pain. There'll be no need for hospitals or cemeteries - they simply do not exist because no one ever dies or gets sick. This is a world God originally planned. This is a world where God's Kingdom *reigns* supremely.
Stop and think about that for a moment! This incredible Event should be shouted from the rooftops! God is All Powerful and Almighty, and His power can easily rewrite the rules of physics to make that world a *reality*! And there's no other Book on the planet that has precisely *accurate* predictions 100% *without* fail each and *everytime*. Because Biblical prophecy is simply history written in advance! According to Scripture, this is what the very near future holds and will be a living reality as predicted in Revelation 21:1,4. Incidentally, God's Prophetic Time piece for The End-times is the tiny nation of Israel. Keep a look out for what happens to this country, as predicted events that occur there will directly affect the rest of the planet:
Nation of Israel = Hour hand
Jerusalem = Minute hand
Temple Mount = Second hand

Ultimately, the *only* Person who holds power over death is Yeshua, Himself, as recorded in Scripture, in Revelation 1:18. And if you were to die tomorrow, unexpectedly, you *now* have the full reassurance and absolute certainty that you *will* go to Heaven. Remember, if you *received* Yeshua, you have an upcoming full body upgrade scheduled to happen *instantaneously* within a split nanosecond, in God's *perfect* timing.

If you'd like to speak to someone about your prayer to receive Christ and also receive a New Believer's Bible,
Remember, you have a direct line and personal access connection with God through prayer - 24/7. As you learn to speak with Him through prayer, He will speak to you through the reading of Scripture, God's Word - the Bible. A great place to begin reading Scripture is with the 4 Gospels of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. So, make sure to not neglect your communication to God (prayer), as well as your reading of Scripture.
It is interesting to note that The Bible is presently the only Book on the entire planet that is currently massively *banned*. Why? Because it's the ONE Book that reveals the *only* True God and Creator of the Universe.
Incidentally, the Bible also has an acronym! B.I.B.L.E. = Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. And the Bible makes it crystal clear Who the Creator is! There's absolutely no mistaking when Scripture makes it explicitly clear, that God, Almighty came in human form. And the Creator is none other than, Yeshua Himself! You can read more about that straight from Holy Scripture specifically in John 1:3. Also in John 1:1-4, & verse 14, and especially in 1st Colossians 1:15-17.
Indeed, Holy Scripture and the words of Yeshua are the *final* Authority to all things pertaining to holy living and honoring God. Even as Yeshua firmly declares in Matthew 24:35, "Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My words will never pass away."
Right now, in some countries (North Korea, Saudi Arabia, parts of China, etc), it's against the law for people to have The Bible in their homes. To have possession of it, literally means the death penalty. And it's only a matter of time when this happens in America. Incidentally, where *most* other belief systems miserably *fail* to produce any hard, empirical archeological evidence, Christianity is the *ONLY* belief system on the planet that has *consistently* proven Biblical Archeological, and historical evidence.
And because of The Resurrection: Yeshua coming back to life 3 Days later after His crucifixion (absolutely, YES!!! Yeshua is actually alive, *now* in real time! Read it for yourself in Revelation 1:18) - God provides a *reality* you can truly look forward to!! And because of Yeshua and all that He has victoriously accomplished, *Heaven* is that reality. One thing for sure is: that everyone who enters Heaven will be more alive than they ever were on Earth. And no one who truly doesn't want to be in Heaven will be there.
Sometimes the difficult storms of life can bring sorrow and despair. If you happen to be going through a difficult time in your life, be encouraged to *know* God sees what you're going through and is *with* you!
