Jesus did not die so we would go out and form 500 different religions. He died to form the Kingdom of God and give us a way to Heaven. It doesn't matter WHAT religion you are. Do you know Jesus????
Hagee said exactly that, and continued: There is no other way to Heaven other than Jesus and the cross.
Why did people follow Jesus?
It wasn't because he was a Rabbi with a cute prayer shawl. It was because HE HAD POWER. He cast out devils. He healed people with a touch or a word. He brought several people back from the dead.
Hagee said something I had never thought of before. He said that a lot of people think they will live their lives doing anything they please, and just before they die, they will accept Jesus as their Savior so they can go to Heaven.
The Bible says, "No man comes to the Father lest the Spirit calls him." Hence, if you are on your death bed, and the Spirit doesn't call you, you are too late, and too lost. You can go so far that there is no way back. There is that unforgiveable sin that nobody seems to be able to say for sure what it is. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, the Bible says. But what, exactly, is that?
I'm so glad I was saved as a child, and I am so glad I had parents that took me to church so I could be. My parents did not have a happy marriage, but they NEVER missed a Sunday morning or evening service and most others during the week. My Daddy led the music at times. My Mom played the piano or helped in Vacation Bible School. We had the preacher and his family over many a Sunday for lunch after church. It was so different back then.
