Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t have some kind of problem or another? Problems such as sickness, disease, financial difficulties, the illness or loss of a loved one, depression, false accusers, imprisonment, oppression from the evil one-world government, etc.? I could go on forever about trouble so horrible that millions of fellow humans have let go. But instead, many people seek GOD and convert to Christianity, to JESUS CHRIST.1 Then they can tell others, “I almost let go, but GOD, through CHRIST, helped me. I felt like I couldn’t take life any longer, but JESUS my LORD kept me so I didn’t let go! GOD’S mercy and love was there for me, so I didn’t let go! I’m alive today because GOD saved me.”

Many people might say, “You don’t know what I’ve been through.” But once you’re with the LORD, you can say, “Nothing’s going to stop me now!” When you’re lonely and your heart is full of despair, just call on the name of JESUS. How precious is the name of JESUS! HE will hear you every time you call on HIM! I will say it again. HE will hear you every time you call on HIM!2

You can then say, “HE kept me!” You will say, “I was full of sorrow, with no hope for tomorrow, but JESUS heard me, and HE strengthened me when I almost let go.”
JESUS, YOU came to my rescue! Where would I or anyone else be if we were not able to call on YOU, JESUS? Thank YOU, JESUS, for your mercy! Thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for your grace! In times like these, we need relief. We need a SAVIOR. We need repair. We need release from our problems, and we need miracles!

It doesn’t cost a thing to pray! What would the value be in letting go for these last few minutes of time in our short lives, and then spending infinity—forever—in torment?3 The LORD is always on duty to hear you and help you, so hang on to HIM and never give up!4 It’s not worth it! The devil wants to discourage you to the point that you will spend forever with him in fiery torments.5 The torments in Hell are trillions of times worse than here, and they’ll never end. Time here flies by quickly, and before you know it, you’ll be standing before JESUS!6 When you see HIM, you’ll want HIM to say to you, “Enter into eternal life, eternal Paradise forever, MY good and faithful servant. Well done!” (Matthew 25:21).

GOD cannot use anyone who is always discouraged and depressed because they lack trust in GOD to deliver them personally. “But without faith it is impossible to please HIM: for he that cometh to GOD must believe that HE is, and that HE is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM” (Hebrews 11:6).

I found a place to hide where the devil can’t find me. Everyone can find it if they want it. It is the place free from watching the demise of our nation and our world. It is under the shadow of GOD’S wings, HIS WORD. I have found that hiding place, my FATHER. YOU are my refuge, my strength, my shield, my rest.7

David, the King of Israel said, “O GOD, THOU art my GOD; early will I seek THEE: my soul thirsteth for THEE, my flesh longeth for THEE in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see THY power and THY glory, so as I have seen THEE in the sanctuary. Because THY lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise THEE. Thus will I bless THEE while I live: I will lift up my hands in THY name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise THEE with joyful lips: When I remember THEE upon my bed, and meditate on THEE in the night watches. Because THOU hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of THY wings will I rejoice [because there the devil can’t find me!]. My soul followeth hard after THEE: THY right hand upholdeth me. But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in GOD; every one that sweareth by HIM shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped” (Psalm 63:1-11).

Why should you let go? JESUS is your Savior. HE is the merciful and just KING of kings and the LORD of lords.8 HE could have stayed in Heaven. HE didn’t have to come to earth to suffer and die so that sinners could repent and be saved. HE could have spared HIS life and still had Paradise, but HE came to earth as a man.9 HE suffered, died,10 and rose again from the dead.11 HE stayed here and paid the ultimate price for our sins in our place.12 If HE wouldn’t have had all this mercy for us, HE would have let us go. But in HIS mercy and love for us, HE laid down HIS life and was nailed to a cross, and shed HIS sinless blood as our sacrifice so we could be set free.13

JESUS never “almost let go.” HE never thought of it. HE knows how horrible Hell is, and we know about it from HIM, from HIS WORD.14 So don’t be one of the statistics. Don’t even think of letting go! Eternity in Hell is too long—it never ends! It’s dying forever. It’s full of agony and pain, and crying for mercy, which will never come. Mercy is only here for you now, while you’re still alive.15 JESUS says, “Come unto ME, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take MY yoke upon you, and learn of ME; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For MY yoke is easy, and MY burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Right now, you can begin a new life of hope and peace. Receive the mercy of GOD through CHRIST JESUS and become born again of GOD’S SPIRIT by saying this prayer unto HIM:


My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11

After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13

CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
