Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might
- Ephesians 6:10
The Christian's Magna Charta of protection from Satan and his evil
power is Ephesians 6:10-18

A Special Message:
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can
be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance
from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either
Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He
did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the
Judgment Day and tell
Him that you didn't need
the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and
get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a
To get to know God, to be at
peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will
be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with
God right now ... please
to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.
What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will
spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most
important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is
impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
