Great news for our Catholic friends

You are here

First of all, we want to remind you how much God loves you and He wants you to learn how to deepen your personal relationship with Him.

St. Peters Basilica

God has over the years has introduced many great programs to the Catholic Church and very few people have responded to His effort.
Many of these programs have been introduced through the Charismatic ministries of the Catholic Church.  Due to the fact that not all of the churches have had the Charismatic programs, the people at those churches would not be aware of all that is available to them.

There are many great books and study guides like, Finding New Life in the Spirit, that was printed and circulated in 1972.  These can be checked at your Bible Book Store and the ISBN number is, 0-89283-001-8.

Many other attempts have been made to get the attention of the Catholic people to help them become aware that their Heavenly Father and their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ want a personal relationship with them as an individual.

Since most of you have a Catholic approved Bible in your home we can share with you some of the Great information God has for you. Please open your Bible to the index.

First, you will find that your Bible is divided into two parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament describes the creation of the earth, the creation of man and the many covenants that God had made with man and, as always, how man broke his side of the covenants.

The Old Testament also includes the prophecies concerning the 1st coming of the Messiah, God’s Son, who is our Savior.

During the Old Testament time God chose a people and He gave them instructions and provision to live a life that would be very noticeable to the other nations that they were set apart and serving the one and only true God. This nation called Israel failed as humans fail; the people wanted to “do their own thing” and live their lives the way they wanted to.

The Israelites are a basic example of human nature which means, all of us want to do what we want to do.

Our friend, here is the GREAT NEWS for you. Throughout the Old Testament, God was preparing a way for you to receive eternal life. There are more than 300 prophecies in the Old Testament predicting the first coming of God’s son Jesus Christ. These prophecies told of the virgin birth, Jesus’ ministry, His arrest and beating by the Roman soldiers, then His crucifixion on the cross and finally, on the third day, Jesus arose from the grave. I Corinthians 15:1

All of these prophesies of Jesus’ first coming and the crucifixion and the resurrection were fulfilled in every detail in the New Testament.

While Jesus was hanging on the cross He said, “It is finished” just before He died. What that statement means to us is, that everything that God requires for us to be cleansed from sin and to be made into right standing with Himself was completed with Jesus fulfilling all of the prophecies concerning Him in the Old Testament.

Now would you look at the New Testament? This is where the GREAT NEWS is for you. It begins with the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The gospel of Luke has a more descriptive presentation of the virgin birth of Jesus, God’s only begotten son. The gospel of John is the more intimate gospel because Jesus is laying out the Father’s heart so that we can see how much God loves us. In the 17th chapter of John, Jesus said, “The Heavenly Father loves you as much as He loves His son Jesus”. John 17:19-23

In John chapter 3:1-21, Jesus told a religious leader that we must be born again to receive eternal life. If we are not born again we do not have eternal life. Then in John chapter 4:21-24. Jesus said, “God is a spirit and He is looking for people to worship Him in spirit and in truth”

And on the night of the Last Supper, Jesus said, “ When He goes home to Heaven, He and the Father are going to send the Holy Spirit back to earth to live in us when we become born again. The person of the Holy Spirit, that will be living in us, will guide, lead and teach us”.

Dear friend, this is the GREAT NEWS for you. You have all of this very exciting information right at your fingertips, right there, in your own Bible.

Can you say WOW with us? You can recieve eternal live and begin your personal relationship with God right now. You can develop your progressive growth by choosing to start reading your Bible daily and learning how you pray the way Jesus taught the disciples how to pray during the Last Supper. Jesus gave instructions on how to pray in the Gospel of John in chapter 14:13-16 and chapter 15:16.

God Himself, invites us in the New Testament, in the book of Hebrews, to come boldly to the throne of grace.  Jesus taught that now, we as a individual, when we become born-again, have direct access to our Heavenly Father in Jesus' name.

God truly wants a personal relationship with you.

We are going to share with you how to become born-again, the Biblical way and then you can have the confidence that when it is your time to die, that you will already know that you have eternal life, and that you would immediately go to be with the Heavenly Father and Jesus your Lord and Savior in Heaven.

Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God?

“But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through His Name.” John 20:31

Do you know how much God loves YOU?

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Now, let’s personalize this verse by placing your name in the blanks:

“For God so loved ______________, that He gave His only begotten Son, that (if) _______________ believes in Him, (then) ______________ should not perish, but ________________ (will) have everlasting life.”

Do you know that the cancer of the soul, called sin, has touched every human being causing complete separation from God?

“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23

Do you realize that sin causes your spirit and soul to be separated from God? But, do you also realize that God’s gift of eternal life will cause your spirit to live forever? Have you made your choice?

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

Do you know how much God desires your relationship with Himself?

”Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come into him, and will fellowship with him, and he with me.”
Revelation 3:20


What is your next step?

Just pray this simple prayer with all of you heart:

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved."

Romans 10:13 

“Dear Jesus, forgive me for all my sins and save my soul. I repent of my sins and for living a life apart from you.  I ask you to come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Take control of my life, for I give myself to you now. Thank you for hearing my prayer and for saving my soul. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
