The Keys to Eternal Life
Acknowledge You Have Sinned. "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us" (I John 1:8) "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
God" (Romans 3:23)
Believe In Jesus. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy
house" (Acts 16:31). "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" (John 3:16).
Confess and Renounce Your Sin. "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" (Romans 10:9). "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (I John 1:9).

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the
Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 3:17
“THINGS IN HELL THAT WE NEED”
And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,
and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his
bosom. Luke 16:23
