Frankfort, Kentucky... The Capitol City


The Commonwealth of Kentucky Capitol Building
The City of Frankfort, the Capitol City of Kentucky and located on the Kentucky River, likely received its name from an event that took place in 1780s. Native Americans attacked a group of early British-American pioneers from Bryan's Station, who were making salt at a ford in the Kentucky River. After the pioneer Stephen Frank was killed, the settlers called the crossing "Frank's Ford." This name was later shortened to "Frankfort."

Salvation 101

HEAVEN?

If you were to die, would you go to heaven?

DID YOU KNOW THAT...
... God loves you and wants you to live with Him in heaven?
John 3:16

New International Version (NIV)

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The Message (MSG)

"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

New King James Version (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

1 John 5:11

New International Version (NIV)

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

The Message (MSG)

This is the testimony in essence: God gave us eternal life; the life is in his Son.

New King James Version (NKJV)

And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

... The Bible teaches us that we are all sinners? Have you ever said, done or thought anything wrong?
Romans 3:10

New International Version (NIV)

As it is written:
   "There is no one righteous, not even one;

The Message (MSG)

There's nobody living right, not even one,

New King James Version (NKJV)

As it is written:

      There is none righteous, no, not one;

Romans 3:23

New International Version (NIV)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

The Message (MSG)

Since we've compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us,

New King James Version (NKJV)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Galatians 3:22

New International Version (NIV)

But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.

The Message (MSG)

If such is the case, is the law, then, an anti-promise, a negation of God's will for us? Not at all. Its purpose was to make obvious to everyone that we are, in ourselves, out of right relationship with God, and therefore to show us the futility of devising some religious system for getting by our own efforts what we can only get by waiting in faith for God to complete his promise. For if any kind of rule-keeping had power to create life in us, we would certainly have gotten it by this time.

New King James Version (NKJV)

But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

... Rejecting God's plan of eternal salvation will keep you out of heaven?
Romans 6:23

New International Version (NIV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Message (MSG)

Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God's gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.

New King James Version (NKJV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

James 1:15

New International Version (NIV)

Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

The Message (MSG)

Lust gets pregnant, and has a baby: sin! Sin grows up to adulthood, and becomes a real killer.

New King James Version (NKJV)

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

John 5:40

New International Version (NIV)

yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

The Message (MSG)

And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren't willing to receive from me the life you say you want.

New King James Version (NKJV)

But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

John 3:18

New International Version (NIV)

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

The Message (MSG)

Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.

New King James Version (NKJV)

"He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

... Being honest, truthful, kind, compassionate, loving, generous, unselfish, trying to keep the Ten Commandments and even going to church will not get you into heaven?
Proverbs 14:12

New International Version (NIV)

There is a way that seems right to a man,
       but in the end it leads to death.

The Message (MSG)

There's a way of life that looks harmless enough;
look again--it leads straight to hell.

New King James Version (NKJV)

There is a way that seems right to a man,
      But its end is the way of death.

Isaiah 64:6

New International Version (NIV)

All of us have become like one who is unclean,
       and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
       we all shrivel up like a leaf,
       and like the wind our sins sweep us away.

The Message (MSG)

We're all sin-infected, sin-contaminated.
Our best efforts are grease-stained rags.
We dry up like autumn leaves — sin-dried, we're blown off by the wind.

New King James Version (NKJV)

But we are all like an unclean thing,
      And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;
      We all fade as a leaf,
      And our iniquities, like the wind,
      Have taken us away.

James 2:10

New International Version (NIV)

For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

The Message (MSG)

You can't pick and choose in these things, specializing in keeping one or two things in God's law and ignoring others.

New King James Version (NKJV)

For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

New King James Version (NKJV)

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

... God loves you and has made a way to heaven through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ?
Romans 5:8

New International Version (NIV)

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

The Message (MSG)

But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.

New King James Version (NKJV)

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 2:8-9

New International Version (NIV)

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast.

The Message (MSG)

Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! 9We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing!

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

... You can go to heaven, no matter how bad your sin is?
Matthew 9:13

New International Version (NIV)

But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

The Message (MSG)

Go figure out what this Scripture means: "I'm after mercy, not religion.´ I'm here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders."

New King James Version (NKJV)

But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.’

For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."

... How can you believe?
Romans 10:9-10

New International Version (NIV)

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

The Message (MSG)

Say the welcoming word to God--"Jesus is my Master"--embracing, body and soul, God's work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead. That's it. You're not "doing" anything; you're simply calling out to God, trusting him to do it for you. That's salvation. With your whole being you embrace God setting things right, and then you say it, right out loud: "God has set everything right between him and me!"

New King James Version (NKJV)

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

... What can you do to show that you believe?
You can sincerely pray this prayer and tell God that you believe and accept His Son as your Savior:
       "Dear Lord God, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. I believe that your Son the Lord Jesus Christ died to pay for my sins. I trust Him now as my personal Savior and Lord. I ask Him to come into my life. Amen."
... How can you know that you are going to heaven?
If you have truly accepted the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior, you can be assured that you are going to heaven.

 

John 14:1-3

New International Version (NIV)

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

The Message (MSG)

"Don't let this throw you. You trust God, don't you? Trust me. There is plenty of room for you in my Father's home. If that weren't so, would I have told you that I'm on my way to get a room ready for you? And if I'm on my way to get your room ready, I'll come back and get you so you can live where I live.

New King James Version (NKJV)

"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

... Have you made the right decision?
John 3:36

New International Version (NIV)

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him."

The Message (MSG)

New King James Version (NKJV)

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

1 John 5:13

New International Version (NIV)

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
