       There are an estimated 8 billion people in the world, that’s 8,000,000,000 people!  The average life expectancy of a person is estimated to be around 70 years of age.  With all the natural disasters, people smoking, the global aids epidemic, terrorism, drug overdoses, liquor related deaths, accidents, murders, war, et cetera. I’m sure the average life expectancy is much lower. 

Visit a cemetery sometime and you’ll be surprised how many people have died at a much younger age.  Nevertheless, let’s suppose that the average person lives to be 70 years old.  8,000,000,000 divided by 70 equals 114,285,714. This means that 114,285,714 people, on average, die every year.  If we divide 114,285,714 by 365 days in a year, this means that an average of 313,111 people are dying every day in this world. Are you shocked? You'd never think from listening to the daily news that so many were dying. 

I’ve never heard anything like this on radio or TV, but it's a fact.  Every day in this world, 313,111 people on average fulfill their appointment with death. Could you imagine reading the front page of a newspaper and seeing something like... “313,111 PEOPLE DEAD!”? It happens every single day my friend! The reason you’ll never see something like this is because it isn’t glamorous. People like to hear about the one person who was shot to death, or the CEO that jumped out of his office window, or the mentally-ill woman who drove her car into a group of pedestrians.

The news media isn’t interested in how many people are dying around the world. There are natural deaths occurring all over the earth every second, 24 hours a day, but we never hear of them. If you do the math with our given factors, 217 people die every minute somewhere in the world. That's 3.6 deaths every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day! Deaths resulting from crime, war, disaster, sickness, injury, poison, disease and starvation are seldom heard of from other countries. We only hear of the tip of the ice-berg!  

You can’t disagree with the math! 8,000,000,000 people will all be dead in 100 years! (okay, maybe 99.9%).   

How many people live to be 100? NOT MANY! By dividing 70 into 8,000,000,000, we found that 114,284,714 humans will die every year on average (more-or-less from year-to-year, but all will be dead in approximately 70 years). We also found that dividing 365 days into 114,285,714 means that an average of 313,111 humans die every day. You can see how these numbers can easily be used to exploit the COVID-19 virus and create a media hysteria. Coronavirus is the new terrorism!

Now, let’s say that one in ten people are genuine born-again Believers (which I highly doubt). We are clearly told in Matthew 7:14 that few people ever make it to Heaven! ... “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT” (Matthew 7:14; See also: Luke 13:23,24). How tragic! How horrible! Honestly, I would be very surprised if more than one out of every hundred people are truly saved and on their way to Heaven!

Consider the 1,200,000,000 people in China who know not the Lord Jesus Christ! Consider the 1,600,000,000 Muslims who worship Allah and honor the prophet Mohammed, but they do not honor the Lord Jesus Christ. Consider the 1,200,000,000 Roman and Orthodox Catholics around the world that worship Mary, and are trying to earn their way into Heaven through keeping the Seven-Sacraments, confession to a priest, and good works. They are all hellbound in their sins and unbelief.

On and on, religion and more religion!  Countless billions of people are trusting in their religion to save them instead of the Lord Jesus Christ. Surely, nine out of ten people in this wicked world are bound for a Godless, eternal Hell. I have no doubt whatsoever that 90% of the people in this world are going to Hell. Why? For one simple reason friend, they do not have the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. They have never believed the Gospel message. They have been deceived by Satan (2nd Corinthians 4:4).

Their sins have not been forgiven. We estimated that 313,111 humans die every day on average. 313,111 minus 10% equals 281,800 people that perish into Hell-fire and destruction every single day that passes. So roughly, 275,000 HUMANS PLUNGE INTO HELL-FIRE EACH AND EVERY DAY! We also see that 31,311 people (10%) make it to Heaven each day on average. Of course, this is my opinion. We don't know the actual ratio of saved verses lost throughout the world. I can tell you one thing, most of the saved people in the world are amongst the poorest, as the Word of God teaches (James 2:5).

Jackie Gleason's Unbiblical False Beliefs
(Known as “The Great One” in 1950, Gleason didn't know “The Great God And Our Savior”)

The staggering number of people which die every day can’t be denied! You can argue concerning the percentage of people going to Heaven verses Hell; however, Matthew 7:14 clearly teaches that only a “FEW” people will enter into Heaven. “MANY” are going to Hell. As I mentioned, I'd be surprised if more than 1% of the world's population are born-again believers. 

If you don't believe the Holy Bible, then you had better hope to God that your right. If you believe the Bible “just enough” to BELIEVE THE GOSPEL—you will be eternally safe! We all must die and it’s guaranteed that we're not going to escape death! It’s just a matter OF TIME! Prepare to meet thy God!  

Salvation is not found in religion, but in a person—Jesus Christ! 

Let's think a bit further on this shall we...

Again, if 313,111 people die every day (on average), then 13,046 people die every hour. 13,046 divided by 60 minutes = 217 people die every minute. 217 divided by 60 seconds = 3.6 (we'll say 3) people die every second. Can you imagine this? 3 people die in this world every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, of every week, of every month, of every year! It's adds up to 114,285,714 people a year.  

What percentage of people do you believe are truly saved? If you say “ALL,” then you are obviously NOT a true Christian believer. 1st John 2:22 teaches that anyone who denies Jesus Christ is a LIAR. That means all Islamic Muslims are liars, because they deny that Jesus is the Son of God. Muslims deny that Jesus ever died on a cross. There are an estimated 1,600,000,000 Muslims in the world.

All followers of Judaism are liars, because they deny that Jesus is the Messiah. That's what the Bible teaches in 1st John 2:22. It's Jesus or Hell.

The question is: Do you believe that the Bible is God's Word? I do. By the way, the King James Bible is the only reliable English Bible that hasn't been corrupted by Satan. All modern Bible are translated from an entirely different, corrupted Hebrew and especially tainted Greek source. We can trust only the precious Greek Textus Receptus!!!

There are another estimated 1,200,000,000 Roman Catholics in the world, all who believe that Mary is able to give salvation, that the Seven-Sacraments are essential to salvation, that the Pope speaks for God upon the earth, that the priest has power to forgive men's sins, and that good works can get them into Heaven. What a bunch of Satanism! The Bible teaches that we are saved solely by Christ's righteousness, which is through faith in His precious literal, physical, blood that washes our sins away (1st Peter 1:18-19; Hebrews 9:12,24; Revelation 1:5; Romans 3:25).

I witnessed to a Catholic man once who said he didn't believe Jesus was almighty God. He's not a born-again believer. How sad! Most of the world has been deceived by false religion. Jesus is almighty God (John 1:1,14; John 10:33; John 14:1-3; 1st Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9; Revelation 1:8). Yes friend, sadly, billions of people are needlessly going to Hell. It is their choice! Each and every HOUR, roughly 13,000 people die.  Several thousand of those people go straight to Hell. Think about that! Every hour, several thousand people plunge into the horrifying depths of the flames of Hell.

You've Probably Never Really Heard The Gospel

More than likely, you've heard all sorts of secular and religious nonsense taught throughout your life, that are false teachings concerning salvation. Well, I'm right now going to share the truth from God's Word with you, so you can be forever and securely saved, that is, born-again.

Being saved is very easy. Salvation happens when a person acknowledges their sinnership, coming to God on the basis of being a hell-deserving sinner, and BELIEVES the Gospel. The “Gospel” is defined in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as three things: Christ DIED on the cross for our sins; He was BURIED; and thirdly, Jesus RESURRECTED from the dead three days later for our justification. If that's your only hope for eternal life, then you are saved my friend. We are saved by BELIEVING. If you've never received Jesus as you personal Savior, please do so now. John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

But you ask, “What about repentance? Don't I have to stop living in deliberate sin to be saved?” No, turning away from sins to be saved is one of the biggest lies of Satan, which has caused millions of people to go to Hell forever. You cannot show me even one verse from the Bible that says to “turn from sin” or “repent from sin” to be saved. Romans 3:19 teaches that the PURPOSE of God's Law (i.e., the Ten Commandments) is to show man his sinful condition when compared, so that “ALL THE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD” (Romans 3:19b). And then when men see their guilty condition, they REPENT (i.e., change their mind), and BELIEVE the Gospel to be saved. This is exactly what Galatians 3:24-26 teaches.

This is what Romans 10:3-4 teaches... “Christ is the END OF THE LAW, TO THEM THAT BELIEVE.” Oh friend, have you been deceived? The Devil has crept into most of the churches today with a false repentance that gives men religion without the new birth in Christ Jesus. Eternal life is a free “GIFT,” which does not impose any obligations upon the recipient to forsake the sinful world, cease from sinful behavior, surrender all to Christ, declare “Jesus as Lord,” and confess Him before men. These are all “WORKS,” which are prohibited in God's plan of salvation. That's why it is called “THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). The biggest culprit, the most satanic source of these false doctrines, is the new counterfeit modern Bible versions which the churches have embraced wholeheartedly. Most religious churchgoers today are as naive cattle headed into the slaughterhouse.

We are saved simply by believing on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, Who died, was buried and and raised up.  Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Please understandall one's good deeds, keeping of the Ten Commandments, water baptism, church membership, communion, penance, confirmation and praying are A ROAD TO HELL if you place any trust in them to save you. Salvation is solely by Christ's righteousness, and not by any self-righteousness of our own.  Titus 3:5, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us...” God DIDN'T give us the Ten Commandments to earn our way to Heaven; but rather, to show us our sinful condition and need for a Savior. Galatians 3:24, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” Amen!

Don't rely upon anything or anyone other than the Son of God, Jesus, to forgive your sins. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Whosoever means YOU!!!  “Call” means “to appeal unto” i.e., “to go to Jesus to be saved.” If you come to the Savior, He will not turn you away (John 6:37). Isaiah 1:18 teaches that God will forgive the vilest sinner who comes through the Son of God. All that God the Father asks is that we come to Him through His dear Son for forgiveness (John 14:6).

Salvation is not a prayer! Salvation is not a decision. Salvation is not an experience. Salvation is a supernatural act of God in response to one's faith in Jesus Christ. Eternal life is freely given (Romans 5:15), freely offered (Romans 10:13), and freely received (Revelation 22:15).

To be saved, you simply stop trying to work your way to Heaven, and you rest in the finished work of Christ. That's what the Sabbath Day pictured in the Old Testament. Jesus is our Sabbath, in Whom we rest for salvation. Our faith plus the Gospel equals salvation (Hebrews 4:2). As I've shown you, the “Gospel” is the DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). The only way to Heaven is to come as a guilty sinner and cast one's self at the feet of Jesus for forgiveness, BELIEVING the Gospel. Romans 4:5-6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.” Did you read that? ... HIS FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!

You don't need to stop sinful behavior TO BE SAVED. Whatever changes God expects will be dealt with ONCE YOU ARE SAVED, and BECAUSE YOU ARE SAVED. Can anyone give up all their sinful bad habits? Jesus asked in John chapter 8, “Who is without sin among you?” Salvation is not about us giving up our sins to be saved. Salvation is about us admitting that we are guilty, hell-deserving, sinners; and therefore, we need a Savior to redeem us. Jesus has the nail-scarred hands and feet. Jesus is that precious Savior.

Once we are saved, God will work in our heart to make the necessary changes. A changed life is the FRUIT of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and not a part of the ROOT of saving-faith. Salvation is solely by Christ's righteousness (Romans 10:3-4; 2nd Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 6:33). Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do! Perhaps you say, “Preacher you're just trying to scare me!” You're absolutely right! Proverbs 1:7, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
