Gospel: GOOD NEWS!

Salvation brings love, joy, and peace through our faith and concern by the difference God makes in salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. To be saved, and Jesus Himself said the gate is straight and the way is narrow and difficult to Life and few find it and are saved. And the way to destruction is broad and its gate wide and many go to find that and perish. And so we need a faith in God, a belief that grows (into born of God life: zoe in Greek,) believing He is a personal God concerned intervening in all our struggles. Your trouble can be the fertile ground for God saving you. Jesus spoke about hell as a place to shun and the Apostle Paul also (perdition) but Christ spoke more about hell than anyone in scripture, family. A God Who lets sinful people have their own way for very long wouldn't be just nor would He be just or loving to the victims of transgressors. Sin is lawlessness and transgression of the Law of God which Law was given to us through Moses by God and through angels: (this) results in death to those under the Law who sin to show us that we fail God as well as God's Holiness and Love by misdirecting an inner voice, namely the Holy Spirit's gentle persuading inner voice convicting or can be confirming and/or commending. God has called you to a need to see and hear to obey the Lord's Voice. God's got such a wonderful and wide plan and for instance a place in Heaven He's been preparing for over 2000 years now that it's enough to blow your mind! It's so you can be instead of be re: 'in sin,' instead be in God's Family where Christ is the Fulfillment of the Law within each of us Christians individually lived out Romans 8:3. Anti-nomialism on the other hand is anything goes and every situation, relative to the one next, with no absolutes that is "being antinomial" lawless in behavioral attitude and action. By this we grieve God. This lawless way in action and attitude is the way most of the world lives. God has something so fabulous beyond what our eyes and ears have known or our heart has conceived! God hasn't booby-trapped our bodies; He's released His Spirit through them to shine as salt and light. But first we have to come to the end of ourselves and find that emptiness and God being the only One to fill us.

We see by many infallible proofs God is Holy and Right. God's showing us through many laws He puts out there that we fail to obey within the Law (of God through Moses) & in this, God shows us a limit on personal avenging of a victim to his/her aggressor. God in Christ is saying in essence we need a Savior to save us from our sinful edged passions for in many ways we have gone way over the edge in sinning before God. Have you tied your aggressor to a post even if only in thoughts? You've sinned. If we have ever lied we have sinned before God and if we have ever stolen we have sinned also. Lusted? You failed. Scripture says, "miss the Mark in one of them (any one law in the Law,) and you've missed (or failed) every one of them," (James 2:10.)


Thoughts of love turned to lust? to hate? to murder in the heart? We deserved hell justly for this because God's Law judges such attitude/behavior (See Jesus' words in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5,6,7.) For Heaven/Paradise God created creation to spend eternity with Him and each other and to live there requires perfection indeed. Otherwise as soon as one of us showed up there, Paradise would no longer be Paradise/Heaven. Jesus went to the Father to show that opened up is Paradise and Heaven and He succeeded! He won the Title Deed to it all and He sits on God's Throne: He can open the Seal to the Sevenfold-Sealed Scroll (see Rev.6,7.) All others (in other words, who sin) are liars and thieves, "trying to climb up some other way," scripture declares,... "into the sheepfold." "My sheep hear My Voice," Jesus said, "and a stranger they will not follow," John 10. Jesus said, "My sheep...I know them, and they follow Me," (Jn 10.)


In mercy God Himself provided the way to Himself and in Eternity fullness so we could enjoy, in that we could not cross that bridge until He sent Himself in the form of Jesus Christ as Savior: and Christ lived a pleasing life to God before God pleasing of His Ten Commandments (and the 613 laws) here on earth obedient to death even a cross death, & rose again which was vindication of the way He lived under God's Lordship and which so many villify to their own swift destruction. In victory (His) of that way He lived and died and rose again so we could accept: "it is Finished" by the Son and so somehow to reach to the resurrection from the dead (meaning Heaven.) This Paul said in the Epistle to the Philipians would take place at the Rapture or when we die. This is the first resurrection. We need to be rightly related to God. He died in weakness, was buried, seemed to some: a crucifixion (hung on a cross to die)(II Corinthians 13:4,) but that was Friday....Sunday's a Coming! and on Sunday.. He Arose from death and lives by the Power of God in victorious triumphant fashion! That Resurrection has been and is supremely victorious and it's the most documented fact of history! His-Story. He brought tithes and offering to God which was His Blood to the Throne where God dwelt. Access is now here.


(He had gone to the cross to suffer God's wrath in an eternity in those six hours on the cross. He suffered an Eternal Punishment, our punishment we deserved of hell full blown: the eternity of eternities of time existed there for six hours on the cross beseiged by God's Wrath and Won: He came out the other side Whole and intact. It took an Eternal Being to save us Eternally beloved. He became sin and had the full blown strength of God's Judgment, in Wrath poured out upon Himself and His own Blood justified Him without the smell of smoke!)


Now we can go free. We live by faith not sight. Can you not see the Majesty or Magnificance of this? And so we need to respond in kind to God to that 'in one act of time once for all Eternity' loving act and in that I/you can be saved? Believe Jesus paid it all! If you can have faith to be healed and saved, you can be assured if you do: A certain salvation.


For instance Moses was given a pattern in the Sinai desert as to how God would provide for them in a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night and by way of the Ark of His Presence that led everywhere they went which had a Mercy Seat on The Tabernacle, of Accacia wood within and by cherebim and (of beaten gold, outside) and seraphim on top with wings facing each other to observe where God dwelt back in the Old Testament. This artifact later became the Temple: Holy of Holies and contained the Ark of The Presence. And then Christ Himself on earth, the very Presence of God, and now Christ is within each believer, by the Holy Spirit we're masterpieces who're given by God life and ministry to each of us! But you have to be IN Christ to win Eternal Life. You have to be identified with Christ through life. In other words, His Presence in you in salvation and outside you have to be applied to your life and it's all a Gift by grace to those that obey by faith through grace (in Greek, Chiro.) In fact the obedience of faith Paul spoke of in Romans chapter one is for one to endure to the end (of life.) Jesus lived that perfect life perfectly. "I am the way the truth and the life, no man gets to the Father but by Me," Jesus Christ said (John 14:6.) We need to be born of God or born from above, born again Jesus taught (John 3:3,5)! We come to confess our sins to God in Christ admitting we're sinners and have fallen short of God's glory (and that's in Romans 3:23 to do.) Romans three verse ten says, "There is none righteous, no not one." We fall short of God's glory but fall on the mercy of God and kindness and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior humbly in a bow of the knee before Him. Paul said He bowed before God and so should we. Be following Christ all the days of our life & we will assuredly for certain build a sure foundation against the storms to come established on the Laws and Promises of God as a result, and will have committed everything to Him in an inheritance we pick up progressively along the way, prepared for us 'rooted' in God. Jesus is the only way to God. Salvation is of the Lord. God can put us in the eye of the storm in peace in Him. He can write our names in His Book of Life. NO other name under Heaven given among men is needed to be saved Acts 4:12. His Name is Jesus. It's my desire that you will pray fervently earnestly for salvation and in prayer unceasing determine to know God rightly to the point that God knows you through Christ and determine to walk towards Christ: sincerely ask God to be saved through Christ's Blood and be committed to live for Christ so you can be ready should He call you home to Heaven (Philippians 3:20-21.) Read all the Bible and find Jesus Christ, the Living Word, your salvation. It's for everyone! It's a new spiritual life. It's not religious action of the type of fig leaves nor eclessiasticalness. You're not turning over a new leaf in getting saved but turning to the Lord. It's not of works nor by oneself but of and by the Lord's grace through faith. We don't do good works to be saved but we do good works because we're saved. I was at an age of four when I understood this plan of God's and asked Him in, repented, for Him to be my Savior from sin (it's not reformation but transformation.) It's made by God so a child can understand the Gospel message and thus be saved. It has never been a better fuller life since then for me but an Abundant Life in Him . And I have never regretted a moment of it! Bethel Assembly Of God Church - A GREAT CHURCH WITH SERVICES SUNDAY AND THRU THE WEEK!
