Now Is the Day of Salvation
2 Corinthians 6:2 niv
If you don’t know—“now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2 niv). Hear what the Spirit is saying! Don’t harden your heart. The only sin that will keep you out of His eternal loving presence is the sin of arrogance and pride that says, “I don’t need a Savior.” This moment He wants to come into your heart and bless you with His Presence. His Spirit longs to lead you through repentance to righteous living. The following prayer is for you if you wholeheartedly desire eternal life and a righteous walk with the Savior.
Dear Heavenly Father, You are a holy God and I thank You that You sent Your Son to search for me and that you put it in my heart to search for You. I know that You are speaking truth directly to my heart. I humble myself before You. I know that I am a sinner; my actions and thoughts are not holy. I know You are holy. Please forgive me for my sins. Forgive me for the evil inclinations of my heart and mind. I ask You to search my heart, convicting me more and more of the many ways I fall short of Your holiness and grieve You by my sins and transgressions.
Cleanse me with the blood of Your Son YAHshua (Jesus), who came to this earth and gave His life to bear my sin on the stake (cross) at Calvary so that I might live in His glorious kingdom and not suffer eternal death. YAHshua (Jesus), I invite You to come and dwell in my heart. Be master over my whole life. Lead me by Your Spirit to work out my salvation day by day as I read Your word and learn of Your perfect ways.
I thank You that through the resurrection power that raised You from the dead, I too, will be resurrected at Your appointed time to live in Your holy Presence in Your eternal glorious kingdom. I will live because Your blood covers my repented heart and my confessed sins, clothing me with Your righteousness. This alone allows the Father, YAHveh, to see me as righteous and welcome me into His kingdom, as a child of the Most High.
HalleluYAH—meaning Praise be to YAHveh! You asked Him into your heart. You have confessed your sins, and the blood has covered you! He says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). It does not matter what you have done—no sin is too wretched to be washed away by the blood of YAHshua (Jesus). If you prayed, you now by faith, have received the gift of eternal life.
Go, empowered by His Holy Spirit, pray to Him, read His holy word. He says, “like newborn babies, long (crave) for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation” (1 Peter 2:2). Begin to read and see how His word will now become spirit and life to you. It will not be black and white print that makes no sense; instead it will become food to sustain and nourish you and cause you to grow up into a disciple; a mature son or daughter of the Most High.
