How am I so sure that this is true? Because Jesus rose from the grave on the third day following His slaughter—proving that He truly is God in the flesh. Jesus’ blood is the only way to get to heaven. He loves each one of us and wants us to place our faith in Him.
Each of us having tasted of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” will be eternally thankful for the work of our savior, Jesus Christ, when He nailed each of our evil lessons to that cross outside Jerusalem many years ago.
The assuring love of God, and Jesus, along with the true presence of the Holy Spirit within our souls; is the hope to fill us with joy. The hope is this—Jesus has already defeated death! He is the first fruits of the resurrection. He has shown us that He truly is the Messiah.

Caiaphas, the High Priest of the Jews at the time of Jesus' crucifixion, was an active participant in persuading the Romans to crucify Jesus.

Please do not believe and do not allow others to believe that just because you are a good person you have earned heaven. It is all explained in the Bible, you must place your faith in Jesus Christ.
