Are You Saved Yet
If for no other reason
than the facts of….
1) Biblical Prophesy coming true before your very eyes, and the
2) Technological advances of Modern Science
proving the reality of ‘Intelligent Design’…
you should investigate or re-investigate what
God’s Word, the Holy Bible,
declares about today’s World Reality,
and the soon to arrive Rapture and Tribulation.
The time remaining is very… very short.
Your resolve to gain Biblical information will translate
into knowledge and understanding that will HUGELY benefit you.
Your time spent investigating and verifying (easy to do)
the Truths presented in the Holy Bible
will almost certainly prompt you to avoid
even unwittingly committing
The Unforgivable Sin.
Just as you’ve been born as a Biological Creation on Earth
(that is, a ‘Child of Man’ …not… a ‘Child of God’)
It is your responsibility to become Born a second time
as a Spiritual Creation, i.e. ‘Born Again’.
(The Holy Bible adamantly and repeatedly declares
that it is ONLY by becoming Born A Second Time (i.e. Born Again)
that you become a Biblically authorized – thus God Ordained ‘Child of God’)
(Moreover, it is ONLY by becoming a God Defined ‘Child of God’ you enter Heaven)
(Click to link to… A Brief Explanation)
Time is now very, VERY short.
Bible Prophesy coupled with Worldwide Current Events
…clearly teach those who care to learn…
The End of Life as we’ve always known life to be…
is about over. (Hosea 4:6)
The next and final step is… Eternity.
That means that whether by God’s End Time decree
or, at the point of your natural or accidental death
when your end arrives
you will have already made your Eternal choice.
By intent or apathy you will have chosen to remain a
‘Child of Man‘,
or… you will have chosen to become a
‘Child of God‘
in God’s ONLY Biblically Ordained Manner…
- that is -
you will have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior.
It is vital to your future that you clearly understand that
it is you and you alone, not God,
who by your decision makes your personal choice
of Heaven or Hell for All Eternity.
(At the point of your death, God provides NO Second Chances.)
Are You Certain You Are Saved?
It Is Not What You’ve Been Told To Believe
God’s Word, the Holy Bible, says…
It Is What Your Personal Studies Have Revealed
God’s Word, the Holy Bible, Actually Declares.
Which, do you think, is that which God most desires of you?
To be easily lead by some ‘authority’ along a particular line of thought?
(2 Corinthians 11:14-15)
Or, to use the mind God, Himself, gave you and personally investigate
His Only Infallible Word, the Holy Bible?
(God’s Word is nothing less than His Personal Love Letter To You)

By what process did it arrive?
Contrary to what the majority of people throughout the world have been taught to believe, the United States is not in the classic sense what might be identified as embodying a people possessing a ‘Christian’ ideology. Yes, it is true such an ideology was prominent perhaps as recently as a few generations ago, but the actual fact of the people of the USA today having a Christian worldview and lifestyle is far from reality. This same fact holds true with each and every other country that might be considered ‘Western’. Or, ‘Christian’.
Still, because of the influences of history, as they progressed through childhood most Westerners gained varying degrees of understanding regarding Christianity. Most other people throughout the world though, did not receive during their childhood any sense of truly doctrinal understanding. Not having fallen under the Western influence which historically included a certain element of traditional Christian teachings though, does not mean that some individuals have been entirely precluded from gaining at least a basic understanding. The problem though, is that due to their usually not having the advantage of actual Scripture to study as well as older instructors who had already gained a solid understanding of the true doctrine of Christianity, whatever degree of understanding attained was not usually gained by means of a deeply investigative, personal study of the Holy Bible. Thus, whether Westerners by means of a ‘child’s understanding’ or Easterners by means of less than doctrinal teaching aids, most of humanity has gained their initial – and often prevailing concept of Christianity only through what might appropriately be identified as an elementary or even a child’s perception.
The huge problem then, is that whether Westerners or not, as people progress throughout life it is the understanding they gleaned with their ‘child’s mind’ (their elementary understanding) that continues to rule their current comprehension of Christianity… even as an adult. Worse, most people do not even take the time to analyze the ‘Christian’ beliefs they currently hold to a point they comprehend it is NOT their ‘adult mind’ which has provided them whatever understanding they believe correct about the declarations of God’s Word, the Holy Bible.
In order to develop a more definitive as well as all inclusive comprehension of the Truths His Word actually declares, doesn’t it make sense that the God who Created All there is wants you to lay aside your elementary, even ‘child’s understanding’ and begin to employ the use of the adult brain you’ve grown into? How? By no longer arbitrarily holding as complete, or even wholly true, that initial ideology received, but by personally investigating with your adult mind what His Word, the Holy Bible, does indeed actually proclaim as His Truths. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Honestly now, without employing the honorable use of your adult mind by personally investigating what His actual Word, the Holy Bible, declares, who can realistically, sensibly imagine they know the Truth of His Word? Surely, emphatically, that holds true if the current beliefs you hold were not obtained by reason of personal study, but merely concepts you’ve been taught by others to believe… (Acts 17:11) regardless of the presumed Authority of His Word they claim to have. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)
Think about it… Without definitive information received through the proclamations of His Word, the Holy Bible, cross referenced by that same Word, doesn’t it make sense that especially with countless millions of conjecture possibilities as their basis, if not God’s Specific, i.e. Fundamental Word as your guide… it is more than slightly conceivable that much of what you’ve learned as ‘Biblical Fact’, could be nothing more than considerations having been based on nothing more than what someone happened to have thought about this or that when they were teaching you.
Obviously then, without personally studying Scripture in order to verify what you’ve been taught, i.e. including cross referenced verification, it is at least reasonably probable your Spiritual Belief System is merely a compilation of ‘accurate’ Biblical teachings that really aren’t ‘accurate’ at all!
Doesn’t it make sense that Judgment Day will be a very bad time to discover that each and every one of us should have long ago set aside the rule of our ‘child’s acceptance of ”truth” ‘ in favor of allowing our ‘adult mind’ to personally investigate in order to best discover what the Holy Bible… actually says? If not for this life, then surely to Biblically resolve the issue of your coming Eternal Life. If not for you, then surely for the Eternal benefit of those you love who look to you for guidance… doesn’t it make the slightest bit of sense that your Spiritual Belief System should be based on fact, not something you believe merely because you’ve been told to believe it?
What about you? Do you continue to allow your ‘child’s mind’ or merely an elementary understanding of Christianity to dictate to your adult mind what you presume to be reality? Is that the best path to take? In order to discover the uppermost reality of life itself, i.e. the true reality of Him, doesn’t it make sense God greatly desires you to employ the use of the adult mind he has given you? OK then. Rather than continue to simply allow others to tell you what the Holy Bible says, why not resolve to begin to discover by means of dedicated, personal investigation not only the basis, but the validity of the greatest subject matter ever given mankind? That is… is Jesus Christ in all aspects He whom God’s Word, the Holy Bible, declares He is? Your answer to that question determines the whole of your life, but most importantly… the whole of your coming Eternity. Surely it is the most important question God presents us that must be resolved while we yet remain alive on Earth. And make no mistake, with or without your direct participation in discovering the answer, that question will be resolved upon death. Most favorably by far through your personal investigation of God’s Word, the Holy Bible, concluding with the realization you have become ‘classified’ by God, Himself, to have become a ‘Child of God‘ en-route toward Heaven. (John 6:37) Horrifyingly to a degree we cannot imagine if you can’t be bothered to personally investigate or though investigating – fail to recognize the Eternal Truths held within His Word, the Holy Bible. (Hebrews 10:31)
This is how the God of the Holy Bible,
the Father of Jesus the Messiah,
brackets the concept of Salvation…
1 Timothy 2:5…
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me. (*)
In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth,
no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again”. (*)
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near.
Repent and believe the good news!”
(Believe that the Jesus of the Holy Bible is indeed, the Messiah)
He then brought them out and asked,
“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
(31) They replied,
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name,
He gave the right to become children of God. (*)
(13) children born not of natural descent,
nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (*)

If reasoning such as was provided above doesn’t make sense to you,
then consider the alternatives…
1) Rather than diligently studying the Word of God, the Holy Bible, and believing as well as adhering to the declarations found therein, do you adhere to the incredulous concept that God simply wants you to become and remain a mindless moron living your life according to the ‘Nose Ring‘ dictates of what other people teach you to believe are spiritual facts? Or perhaps…
2) Equally incredulous, do you really think that God wants you to leave all intelligent, even scientific reasoning behind and by so doing arbitrarily remain a Non Believer?
Principally, this Site prompts you to
‘Think for Yourself’
The ‘Are You Saved Yet’ website provides not only general, but quite specific information offered for your intelligent investigation. Again… for you intelligent investigation. (That means your willingness to discover truths by personally investigating the depths of reason as provided vis-à-vis countless numbers of WebSites and other sources available to you.)
This site, you see, is patterned after the proclamation God gave to identify the Bereans. (Acts 17:11) Specifically, God identified the Bereans as a ‘Noble People’ because they did not even take the word of the Apostle Paul when he taught them Scripture. The Bereans daily searched the Scripture to determine if what Paul was telling them was indeed ‘God’s Truth’. Obviously, in that they are the only people group God highly esteemed and identified as ‘Noble’, that is the specific trait God desires of each of us as we search for His Truth. That is, rather than taking anyone’s word for what the Scripture teaches as would those who are inclined to learn by the ‘Nose Ring’ approach to life… and that includes Pastors, Priest, Bible Study Leaders, including this and every other writing you read, etc., etc., etc., God earnestly desires each and every one of us to also constantly search God’s Word, the Holy Bible, in order to remain certain we are not mislead.
Make no mistake… God, Himself, declares there are huge numbers of seemingly helpful people who due to their own ignorance are unwittingly… or even intentionally presenting ideas, concepts, even doctrines that are in one ofrm or other ‘anti-Christ’. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) The penalty God bestows upon those who choose to simply adopt a ‘Nose Ring’ philosophy of life can be the worst possible. Read what Jesus will declare on Judgment Day to those who all along ‘thought’ they were Saved… simply because they listened to others without personally researching the Holy Bible, itself, in order to verify their Salvation is strictly according to God’s Holy Word. (Matthew 7:21-23)
This Site as well as other resources identified by links found herein go to great lengths to present you the Word of God as it is proclaimed within the Holy Bible. We perform that service diligently and with great care because we want you to find favor in God’s heart when facing your Eternity. Surely inclusive of that is the very real truth that we do NOT want you to take our exclusive word for what is coming nor for your Eternal standing before Him. Our greatest desire is that you, yourself, will honorably and diligently search throughout His Word, the Holy Bible, that you may deeply discover irrefutable assurance of His love and direction for you.
Friend, the World as we know it is about to come to its End. Even through the use of elementary secular assessments, the world as we now know it to be is about to undergo horrific changes unlike mankind has ever previously witnessed. God in His Word, the Holy Bible, has gone to great lengths to specifically identify for your review a large number of Prophesies teaching that we are currently approaching the very end of the latter preliminaries of what has long been known as ‘The End Times‘. By any secular investigation you make which is structured to prove or disprove those Prophesies, you will not be able to help but discover the secular arena of life accurately verifying the literal fruition of those Prophesies. Surely that is also true as any person truly seeking Truth will discover in God’s Word. Friend, we are on the very threshold of Eternity. Are You Saved Yet? There is no time to waste… (**)
Is your Spiritual Education
(and your Political Education)
the result of your
diligent, though not necessarily comprehended,
personal choice to live a ‘Nose Ring’ lifestyle?
The principle difficulty experienced by all manner of man on any subject has been a general lack of willingness to… personally investigate whatever issue is presented. Considerations of Biblical and Political Declarations surely far more than other issues. Thus, second to our hope for your Salvation is our very sincere hope that you successfully realize you must ‘think for yourself‘. Most people miss opportunities to grasp the depths of Biblical understanding because of their unwitting acceptance to allow others to do their thinking for them. That, because of their subconscious retention of what we’ve grown to believe should be named the ‘Nose Ring‘ philosophy of life. Meaning… they’ve almost constantly chosen to listen to and accept/reject the Biblical declarations of mere man rather than proceeding to live their lives in the manner God’s Word, the Holy Bible, clearly teaches will provide His Own advantages to us. Isn’t it best to live one’s life striving to employ the use of the brains God gave us? Think about it. Is your education about Christian ideals, principles and standards a result of your own personal, honorable investigation of the Holy Bible, itself? Or, is your knowledge and belief system a result of you having merely accepted whatever you’ve been told to believe on the subject? On that point, do you know if whatever you’ve been told by whomever to believe the Holy Bible says is even a report on what the Holy Bible… actually declares? Couldn’t it be that what you’ve heard is simply the result of what someone else heard from yet someone else? No one really digging deep in order to discover the underlying Truths of His Word? (Definitive studies on this point have consistently proven that repetitive hearsay is the rule.)
Especially inasmuch as each and every one of us will die and face our Eternity, doesn’t it make sense to honorably investigate the Holy Bible in an effort to personally understand what God’s Word, the Holy Bible, actually says about the Afterlife? About Heaven and Hell? IMPORTANT: What it… actually declares …not only about such things, but about what you must do to protect yourself and perhaps your loved ones who look toward you for loving guidance?

An adult mind
should be an inquisitive, reasoning mind.
Rather than a ‘mind’ whose owner chooses to remain an easily lead follower, doesn’t it only make sense to be certain that whatever you’ve accepted as fact, i.e. been told to believe… is in fact, actually true? Really now, instead of remaining a follower, shouldn’t one who holds an Inquisitive Mind… seek Truth in an honorable manner? And once Truth is discovered, resolve to live by it? Equally if not more importantly, even if you are one who doesn’t hold an Inquisitive Mind… should you still resolve to become a person who refuses to remain easily lead? After all, isn’t the person who chooses to remain easily lead the same person who chooses ignorance over intelligence? Do you really want that identification? Even only when looking at yourself in the mirror?
Much of this WebSite is dedicated toward people who for whatever historic reason have been largely dis-inclined to honorably and diligently… personally investigate …with their adult mind what the Holy Bible has to say. You’ll notice throughout this site our continuing encouragement that you… personally investigate …is frequent. Such an encouragement is frequent because so many of us have developed our level of Biblical understanding vis-à-vis the ‘Nose Ring’ adaptation of learning. Foremost, we’ve merely listened to other tell us what to believe the Holy Bible says. Secondarily, unless we’ve been wise enough to study throughout adulthood, many of us know what little we know only by the memories we retain from childhood. In other words, our child’s mind still controls our adult Biblical understanding. One way to verify that is to determine whether or not you are able to give a fifteen minute class providing an understanding of the Holy Bible even to children, much less cognizant adults. And then accept a fifteen minute time for questions and answers from those same people. Are you Biblically astute well enough to accomplish such a task?
Salvation – The Extreme Basics
In general, and specifically, with respect to our own Salvation most people have simply been told what to believe on the subject. In other words, they knowingly – or perhaps even unwittingly left their Eternity up to what might only be the imaginations of other people… rather than God, Himself, who has laid down the specific parameters of His own Creation. God quite dramatically warns us to be exceedingly careful to accept the teachings of others – especially with respect to our Salvation. For instance… 1) The only people group held as ‘noble’ throughout the entire Bible are the Bereans. That, because they wouldn’t even take the Apostle Paul’s explanations of what the Scripture declared until they first went to the Scripture itself after he was done speaking… to verify what he had taught them. (Acts 17: 11) 2) Why did God hold them in such high esteem? Because a prime place for satan and his demonic horde to operate is as false teachers of His Word. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) 3) Now what is God’s fear about our being deceived regarding our Salvation? Friend, Jesus, Himself, teaches us that on Judgment Day there will be large numbers of people, perhaps exceedingly large, who believed throughout their lifetimes they were en-route toward Heaven only to hear the final declaration of Jesus that they must turn and enter Hell for Eternity.
God WARNS us to… personally investigate …His Holy Word
to be certain that not only are we properly learning His Standard,
but also for the sake of those we love who look to us for guidance.
Here are the final words of Jesus on that subject…
Matthew 7:21-23 NIV
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,
but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me on that day,
‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name,
and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’
23 Then I will tell them plainly,
‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
God declares our Salvation is ONLY acquired
by our becoming a God defined Child of God.
1) We can only become a Child of God by personally, and solemnly, accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior.
2) Jesus Christ and Him alone because there is ONLY one mediator between God and mankind and God’s Word clearly declares that that single mediator is Jesus Christ. (1 Timothy 2:5-6)
3) Moreover, obviously, you MUST identify with the Authentic Jesus Christ.
… a) The Mormon’s jesus was once a man on another planet who was so good he was rewarded ‘jesus-ship’ of this planet.
… b) The Jehovah’s Witnesses’s jesus is a ‘spirit brother’ of satan. satan, taking second place in God’s ‘run-off’ to see who would become the ‘jesus’ of this planet became bitter and by so doing took upon himself the embodiment of Evil.
… c) The Koran identifies jesus (issi) as one who admits that in his prior lifetime he faked his death, faked his religion and will come back as a Muslim to cut the heads off Jews and Christians who won’t renounce their faith.
… d) The ‘jesus’ of most of the remaining religions of the world is one who is considered to be a ‘prophet’, a ‘good man’ or a ‘good teacher’. In that they largely spurn the primary teachings of the Biblical Jesus whom God declared the Savior of Mankind, consequently, these other religions believe Him not worthy to be wholly embraced. Has anyone ever asked how their ‘jesus’ could be held high as a prophet and identified as ‘good’ when at the same time these same religions identify that same ‘jesus’ as a fraud and a liar?
… As you can see, those just identified plus many other ‘spiritual’ frauds that will arrive in these Very Last Days will also claim to be ‘the real’ Jesus. God in His Word, the Holy Bible, though, has clearly and repeatedly declared there is only One. God doesn’t merely ‘suggest’ you become familiar with His Word in order to discover the identity of that same very well Biblically defined One, instead, He loves you enough to demand it. That, because He well knows how easily our propensity to embrace our ‘Nose Ring’ philosophy (believing what we are told to believe) will take us Straight to Hell.
Do you wish to be easily lead?
Or, receive straight truth?
If you refuse to personally investigate the Holy Bible for Authenticity…
Regardless of what you say – you DO wish to be easily Lead.
As you’ve likely already guessed, this site is not a ‘Mambi Pambi‘ site offering a, ‘please believe me’ message. As old as you likely are, doesn’t it make sense you’ve probably already proven such messages have previously fallen on deaf ears? Not having encouraged you to honorably and diligently research with Truth as your goal, the actuality of what the Holy Bible has to say?
Though at various points on this and other sites my words at first might seemingly be abrupt or abrasive, stick with me. You’ll end up becoming glad you did. At first you might think some of the words and concepts presented might be structured toward insulting or demeaning you, but I assure you they are not. I’m simply laying out in an non mambi pambi manner for your consideration what is factual concerning the reason many adults give Christianity and the Holy Bible little heed. And why you no longer should. ESPECIALLY in these Last Days. In other words, I am speaking straight… your significant question is::: Even behind closed doors and in the privacy of your own mind are you man or woman enough to deal with straight speaking?
Reminder: Though presently employing the use of their adult mind for most aspects of life, many, if not most Non Believers still allow their child’s mind to guide their Biblical belief system. That is, they’ve never honorably studied the Bible using their adult mind. Doesn’t it make sense then that along with whatever has been taught by whomever during the course of their adult life, their ‘child’s mind’ on the subject still has a good deal of influence? Worse, the ‘whomever’ who has told you to believe this or that about the Holy Bible… who is to say that it wasn’t their own ‘child’s mind’ that lead the words and concepts they presented you? Obviously, you can’t know… unless you’ve… personally investigated …what they had to say. (Acts 17: 11)
The point I’m making is that for most Non Believers, their understanding of the Holy Bible is almost always founded in either the remembrances of the incomplete teaching they received as a child or the same, but possibly/probably even more wayward information communicated by an adult who is also speaking from his or her own child’s mind… coupled with erroneous conjectures learned as an adult that they’ve considered valid. Without honorably, personally investigating matters of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Holy Bible, how do you really know if that which you’ve been told to believe is true? Unless you choose to fool yourself again? You don’t!
By what means
might I obtain the honest truth?
The first thing is to place yourself in the solid position that you will accept nothing except the Truth. That begins in front of the mirror. You must strive to get to the point where you can look at yourself knowing that regardless of your past, regardless of whether or not you want to believe the teachings of God’s Word, the Holy Bible, if what you read proves to be True… then you will believe it. Taking such a position will prompt you to know you are on the right track and that right track will lead you to more knowledge, understanding and wisdom on the subject. To avoid that track, to avoid your willingness to embrace Truths as they are unveiled, will only lead you toward embracing a lesser life than is otherwise open to you… the honest seeker.
Doesn’t it make sense that any thinking, reasonable adult who honestly desires Truth as their mainstay should by the employment of their own adult mind, listen, research, analyze and then abide by what they then find to be True? Leaving behind the incomplete teachings he or she received as a child? Or, teachings received from moronic adults because likely those teachings were in reality only their adult modifications originally founded in their child’s mind? Or worse, teachings of the demonic world? Doesn’t it make adult sense to lay incomplete childhood memories aside in favor of education received by employing the use of an adult mind? Doesn’t it make sense that only then will that adult begin to do themselves honor? That only then they will begin to think for themselves? Especially on such a hugely important subject as their Eternal destination? Doesn’t it make sense that they’d only then be able to begin to more completely guide their loved ones along a path that would do them the most good? Do you really believe the incomplete ‘child’s mind’ is the best lover of your loved ones?
In a nutshell… Throughout this WebSite you’ll constantly, did I say constantly, be encouraged to… personally investigate …issues presented. Do not continue your retention of a ‘Nose Ring’ by merely believing the multiples of things which are taught on this site, either. Research all the details for yourself!!! God does not desire people to be mere robots believing what they are told to believe. He desires people to think, to reason, to make judgments on Truths they discover. Doesn’t it make sense that it is only satan who desires you remain living with a ‘Nose Ring’ philosophy about life> And then nurturing your own loved ones by use of a ‘child’s mind’?
