Jesus Christ says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me." (John 14.6)
When Peter stepped out of the upper room on the Day of Pentecost, he preached Christ crucified and solemnly declared, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4.12)
The apostle Paul, in meeting with the Ephesian elders, warned that men would arise within the church ("of your own selves") "speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them". (Acts 20.30) It is the rampant deception that marks these Last Days, and it is being fulfilled among us, in spades.
KNOW THE TRUTH AND STAND IN IT DAILY FOR JESUS ONLY IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. A MORE HUMBLE MAN NEVER WALKED THIS EARTH LIKE UNTO JESUS CHRIST NOR ONE WHO WAS GOD THE SON AND SAVIOR OF ALL BELIEVING SINNERS!
Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin -
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death! The gift is eternal life in Jesus Christ alone by God's unmerited favor (grace) and the faith God gives to a called out sinner lost ...TO BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD IN CHRIST.
Romans 5:8 declares, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus' death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus' resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus' death as the payment for our sins.
1 Cor.15: 1 Cor.15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1 Cor.15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1 Cor.15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1 Cor.15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1 Cor.15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
Romans 10:9, "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Because of Jesus' death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins - and we will be saved!
Romans 10:13 says it again, "for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
The results of salvation.
Romans 5:1 has this wonderful message, "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God.
Romans 8:1 teaches us, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Because of Jesus' death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins.
Finally, we have this precious promise of God from Romans 8:38-39,
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
TRUE LIFE COMES FROM GOD AND IS ETERNAL. PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS WHO ARE! APPOINTED BY GOD (BEHIND THE SCENES AND PREDESTINED FOR GOD'S GLORY IN THE END AND NOT! NOT FOR ANY "SELF GLORY" FOR ALL GLORY ON EARTH IS GOD'S IN JESUS CHRIST IN WHOM WE LIVE AND TO WHOM WE LOOK TO IN PRAYER AND FROM WHOM WE ARE RICH BEYOND COMPARE NOW, AND UNTO ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD AND FAMILY OF FAITH: HIS BRIDE...
HE IS PREPARING US FOR ETERNITY This is our time to get ready. Can you imagine? Look what the future holds! According to the measure of our faith, as GOD already knows, we will be at Jesus side for ever to serve Him in His glorious perfect love. We will be like Him and He will give us a new name like one we never dreamed, according to His riches in Glory, and our love for Him in what we do through the faith we act in now.
LORD WE VOW TO FOLLOW YOU ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN AND BEYOND THE STARS. FILL US WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT SO WE CAN SERVE YOU HERE WITH THE BREATH OF LIFE YOU GIVE US.
Your faithful work at home AND abroad on the internet is important and weighty with our Lord. There are no degrees. Just crowns. One soul saved in His Book gains a crown. 10,000 not more! You, I, we work for His Glory as you know. Your life in Him will bare much fruit! I KNOW THAT! HE HAS TOLD ME. "...For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" Mt 6:19-21 We who love our Lord wait with the sure hope of His coming for us in fulfillment of His promise in Jn.14:1-3: "I will come again and receive you unto myself so that where I am there you also will be".
Furthermore in Jn.16:22 he said "I will see you again and your heart shall rejoice".
This is our greatest joy to be with Jesus Christ forever. We want to please Him NOW for this life is the foundation of our eternity with Him. And when we come before Him at His judgment seat (See 2 Cor.5:10), right after the rapture and before the start of His 1000 year rule on the earth, we want to be full of works of faith that will be recorded on our page in the "Book of Life".
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he/she has done,whether it be good or bad" (2Cor.5:10).
RAPTURE AND REWARDS It is at this time, see 2Tim.4:8, we receive our rewards. At the rapture. If we love Him we will serve Him and in so doing earn rewards that will be ours forever. And the standards will be simple: (1)Our present life of faith (1Cor.4:3-5). (2)Our conduct towards believers (Rom.14:10). (3)Our service through the love of Christ (1Cor.3:11-15).
So lets run the race of faith, to the very end without falling back, without thought of gain, with the joy, peace and love we have inside us. And when we see Him we will not hear bad news that we lost our rewards(See Rev.3:11) but will hear The Lord say"Well done my good and faithful servant".
THE CROWN OF GLORY (PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SEARCH SCRIPTURES!) 1Pet.5:3-4; Heb.6:10; Mk.9:41; Jer.31:16 AN INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN 1Cor.9:25 A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS 2Tim.4:8 A CROWN OF REJOICING 1Thess.2:19 A CROWN OF LIFE Rev.2:10; Jas.1:12
GOD MEASURES WEALTH BY FAITHFUL WORKS AND REWARDS US ACCORDINGLY. FAITH PRODUCES WORKS. TO LABOR FOR GOD'S GLORY IS THE BEST JOB WE CAN HAVE HERE ON EARTH. WE DO IT WISELY WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS IN OUR HEARTS. SEE AGAIN MATTHEW 6:19-21
