Seeing Jesus face to face as a dammed sinner

Repentance is very important. Every time when you do something wrong, you must repent of it (Acts 3:19 and 1 John 1:9). Basically, all you have to say, God please forgive me of my sins. Help me to be more obedient to you. You have to be serious when you say this. You have to be serious about what you are saying. Of course you may make mistakes in the future. I understand this. Everyone is going to make mistakes. As long as you are not premeditating or planning to sin, while you are repenting, your repentance will be accepted. If you are repenting and planning on sinning the next day, you are not serious about changing your ways. So how can God forgive you? He wont be able to forgive you. If you die as an unrepentant sinner, there is no way that you will be able to go to heaven. According to the Bible. So we should not take repentance so lightly. If you do, you will regret it.
Did you know that our words have power (Proverbs 18:21)? What we say, have power over us. Whether it is negative or positive. When you speak negatively about yourself and things, you are attracting negativity to you. You are going to reap whatever you sow. Whatever we put out, we are going to get back. So when you speak, do and think about bad things; negativity is going to rush back to you. It can come back in the form of anything that is negative.
MEDIA AND COMPANY
You have to be extremely careful with music, movies, TV series, friends, family members, acquaintances, people, and any other entertainment source. When it comes down to entertainment sources:
music, movies, and TV series. Make sure you arent watching or listening to anything immoral. What do I mean by immoral? Anything to do with excessive/graphic sex scenes or language, excessive vulgar language, homosexuality, criticizes God and/or Jesus Christ, crude jokes, any ideology that tries to falsify the existence of God and his doctrine. I am trying to be as descriptive as possible. When it comes down to people:
friends, family members, acquaintances, etc...
Make sure that you arent hanging around anyone who are acting immoral. I previously explained to you what I meant by immoral. Peer pressure is extremely strong. Even if you think that you are a strong individual, everyone is influenced by something or someone. You must remember, we are in a spiritual war. As long as you are staying away from the things I warned you about, maintaining your salvation will be much more simple. We make our lives harder than what they should be. So if you are constantly falling back into sin, I guarantee you, you are entertaining yourself with sinful things. So it is not a surprise. Keep in mind, nothing is ever a coincidence. Everything happens for a reason. Once you understand this, your eyes will be opened.
Sin is something that can allow bad things to happen to you as well. When you are disobedient to God, curses will come upon you (Deuteronomy 28:15-68). Disobeying God, doing whatever you want to do, may feel good at the time. Yet, many people dont realize what sin is doing to them. Many people should connect the bad things that they do in life with the bad things that are happening to them now. People dont do this. This is why people continue to sin and receive much punishment from it. It is like an unending process. Sin only gives you temporary enjoyment. After you do it, payment must be received (punishment). When you obey God, you will receive blessings. Your mother and father would happily reward you for being obedient to them (applies to stable parents). In this aspect, God is the same. He will reward you for being obedient. He will discipline you when you are disobedient. God is our father.
You may need to go on a spiritual fast. What is a spiritual fast? Dont eat or drink anything for a particular time period. From what I know, people go on a fast from 1 to 3 days. If you are able, you should fast for more than that. The sky is the limit. The longer the fast, the better. What does a spiritual fast accomplish? Many things. It will lower your desire to sin. It will make you more focus to serve God properly. When you go on a spiritual fast, you should read your Bible and pray. Very important. I advise you to read in the New Testament. Start in Matthew. When you pray, you are just having a conversation with God. Speak to God as if he is a friend. The way that you would speak to a friend, speak to God in the same way. Of course be respectful. That should go without saying. You can tell God about your day and the problems that you are facing. You can tell him about the things that you want, so on and so on. Keep in mind, it is just a conversation. There is no special technique in praying. You are just speaking to God. Be honest and sincere when you are speaking to God.
