Dr. Creflo Dollar: Heaven Bound

Heaven Bound - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesIs God real? What about Satan? Is Heaven a literal place of existence? What about Hell? Everyday millions of people ponder these same questions. Struggling to gain truth of this matter is a reality for Believers and unbelievers alike. Millions of people believe life ends at death. They’ve concluded that death means sleeping and existing in a state of nothingness. However, the reality according to God’s Word is the grave is not the end!

As humans, we’re born into this physical world. We’re educated in this physical world, and therefore we only understand the things of this world. However, physical training does not equip us with the ability to comprehend spiritual things like the reality of life after death.

In order to understand this complex topic we must explore and understand the anatomy of man. Man is a spirit being—he doesn’t have a spirit, he is a spirit. He possesses a soul, where his emotions and intellect reside; and he lives in a physical body.

Because we live in a physical world, we’ve been trained to believe the physical body we see is our entire existence, but that’s untrue. The spirit of man is eternal—it lives forever. When we die, our spirit and soul separates from our physical body. Once that happens, we separate from the physical world, and are immediately born into the spirit world, where our spirit and soul will live forever.

Heaven, Hell, angels, and demons exist in the spirit realm, and when we depart from this physical realm and enter the spiritual realm, we will see the reality of this truth. The Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. However this is only true for the person who is born again. For the person who is not born again, being absent from the body is to be present in Hell.

So what happens to the person who refuses to accept this truth, and dies having been bewitched by the world into thinking that Heaven and Hell aren’t real? The harsh reality of their self—made reservation to Hell will quickly set in, and the truth they’ve heard and rejected will torment them for eternity. Don’t let this happen to you!

I urge you to decide to make Jesus the Lord of your life now! Don’t allow another day to pass without knowing with certainty that you’re Heaven bound. Now is the acceptable time. You can be born again right now, wherever you are, by realizing and admitting that you are a sinner. Repent and ask God to forgive your sins; change your heart, your mind, and your direction. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Once you complete these simple steps you’re saved and on your way to Heaven. Get connected to a Bible—based church, and allow the power of God to transform your life. You’ll be glad you did!

Creflo Dollar: Do All Religions Lead to God?

Do All Religions Lead to God? - Creflo DollarChristianity, Scientology, Buddhism, Hinduism, Calvinism, Mormonism, Islam, what’s the difference? With great sensitivity, I embark on answering the age—old question many have pondered for centuries—Do all religions lead to God? As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, most of the world already knows my stance on this subject. Yet in this article my aim is not to bombard you with my personal thoughts, but rather give you information to consider if you or someone you know is struggling for a conclusion on this matter.

Rick Warren, a pastor and best—selling Christian author, offers an interesting interpretation to this highly debated inquiry. In response to the question, Do all religions lead to God, Warren answers: “Can I go into a phone booth and dial any phone number and get home? No, there’s only one number that’ll get me home. I could be sincere, but I could be sincerely wrong. The truth is, all roads don’t lead to Rome and all roads and all religions don’t lead to God“.

What a powerful statement! For those of you who need a reason to believe the Word, this statement will most certainly give you one. Although somewhat simplistic, Warren’s statement accurately supports the factuality of there being a solitary way to connect with God.

So how does one decide what’s the way to God? Should he or she research what religion has the best philosophies, or compare each religion to see which one makes the most sense? While some of my more theologically—inclined colleagues might applaud you for such efforts, I believe such research will subject you to the reasoning of men, and ultimately lead you away from the truth.

You connect with God by faith, not reasoning, which is why many people find it hard to understand me or accept my style of teaching. I don’t reason with the Bible, I just believe it. No one else in history, besides Jesus, died an agonizing death so I could be spared from Hell’s fire. Mohammad, Buddha, or the Dalai Lama did not give their life for me, so why should I follow them?

The one thing I want you to get out of this article is an understanding that Heaven is real, and so is Hell; when we die, we’re going to one or the other. So it’s time to stop the endless debates, and listen to Jesus—the only One who has died, went to Hell, and came back to tell about it! If you’re reading this article, I urge you to open your heart and let Jesus in. He’ll give you answers you’ve desired. Receive Him today, and allow Him to prove Himself to you; not because He has to, but because He loves you.

Creflo Dollar: The Woman You’ve Always Wanted to Be

The Woman You've Always Wanted to Be - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesBeing a woman in our current society is tough. TV shows, magazines, movies, and other media outlets attempt to convince women to measure themselves according to society’s standards. However, doing so limits the beauty of a woman. According to the world, you have to be a certain size, height, skin tone and have a certain type of hairstyle or clothing style to be considered beautiful. What does a woman do to uphold her self-image in a world where advertisements are flooded with influences that promote worldly beauty? That’s where she draws the line by refusing to conform to society’s image of beauty and renews her mind with the Word of God.

Due to impossible worldly standards, countless women have developed a poor self–image. Fear of not measuring up has caused them to develop harmful habits to prove their beauty and self—worth. For example, some women may spend all their money trying to keep up with the latest styles in beauty, fashion, and nearly starving themselves just to be thin. However, this type of behavior almost always leads to self-destruction.

Women who have problems with their self–image are often bitter, angry and attitudinal. When a woman doesn’t know how to treat herself, she will most likely mistreat others. The Bible tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. However, if you’ve never learned to love yourself, you can’t possibly love anyone else.

Proverbs 31 is an excellent guide for all women, because this woman doesn’t suffer from a poor self—image. Interestingly, the proverb doesn’t describe this woman’s physical appearance, yet by her works we see her beauty radiated from within. I’m not saying run yourself into the ground trying to do everything this woman did! However, take note of how she lived her life and became a woman who was celebrated above all women. She was a woman of elegance and extraordinary intelligence because she honored God.

Proverbs 31:10 says the price of a virtuous woman is far above rubies. She is rare, precious, and esteemed above treasured jewels. As a woman, you have to understand your worth according to God’s Word. You can be the woman you’ve always wanted to be when you begin to see yourself as God sees you.

Make a quality decision to define your standard of beauty by the Word of God. When your self–confidence comes as a result of a personal relationship with God, you’ll realize that you’re loved, precious, and beautiful in His sight!

Creflo Dollar: Changing, Growing, Becoming!

Changing, Growing, Becoming! - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesI came across a quote today that profoundly impacted me. The quote, from Charles Dubois, epitomizes the life of a Christian. It says, “The most important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” Wow! I can’t think of a better quote that precisely and insightfully captures the true calling of Christianity.

Are you willing to sacrifice what you are now, in order to become what God has called you to be? If you’re a Christian, this is a question you need to honestly ask yourself. If your answer is no, you’ll remain stagnant in your current state—never experiencing the result of change or the beauty of growth.

For a born—again Christian, change is a necessary and perpetual facet of life. In order to become everything God has called us to be, not only do we have to embrace change, we have to learn to love it. God makes masterpieces on the canvas of our lives; and everyday we have the opportunity to work with Him in creating a work of art. By the leading of His Spirit, we must be willing to make the necessary adjustments so God can continue the work He started in us.

Do you know what happens to a person who becomes so complacent in their current existence they refuse to change? They never grow, and in extreme cases, they live their entire life with unfulfilled greatness. Don’t let that be your story!

Jesus was a great example of what it means to sacrifice what we are, for what we can become. He embodied change, and allowed His entire life to be a sacrifice. As a result, He now sits at the right hand of the Father. Notice, however, what He ultimately achieved began with His willingness to lay down all for God’s will.

Just think, if Jesus hadn’t willingly sacrificed His life, you and I would not have unrestricted access to the Father. I don’t know about you, but the sacrifice Jesus made motivates me to sacrifice what I am, so I can grow and become what God has destined me to be.

Do you really want to grow into the person God’s called you to be? Because if you do, then change is the order of business! Don’t be consumed with what you are right now; submit your life to God as a sacrifice, and focus on what you will become.
