Walking With The King Of Kings, Jesus The Son Of God!
WE'RE SAVED BY JESUS CHRIST: CERTAIN SALVATION: ENDURING BELIEF IN HIM. Monday, March 5, 2012, 8:49 AM [General] www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1MvMZB-X8E&t=1m...Jesus is the Son of God and came from Heaven to earth special delivery to be born to a virgin and grew up into a man who was to grow in stature and in favor with God and man and then to develop our character and to see us through to refined gold assuming we've been born again. The way He was born brings up issues to some. When you're born again you enter into His life His experience. He becomes your Mediator in salvation by His Propitiatory Death, Burial, and Resurrection. He fulfilled over three hundred prophecies about Messiah being born in a manger in Bethlehem and by the authority with which He spoke and acted, He was declared God Himself. Religion is man's attempts to get to God (resisting the Borg is futile which is symbolic of the way religion is set, but seeking God is spot right on.) Is God reaching down to man in love in a love-Covenant within a relationship to you that grows individually? You bet. God had a Covenant with Adam, Seth, Noah, Enoch, of Conscience and by time of Abraham Covenant God related to and unified man with Himself through faith and grace, a sacrifice of blood He Himself for us would provide and through our consecration (in shadow, we a reflection of His glorious work,) would receive by faith. God was needed to save us because we needed saving. Sin demands and leaves its mark. We couldn't escape death nor the consequences of our sin. Christ is the Savior of the world from sin and sin(s). He Himself lived a reverential life to God when He walked here 2000 years ago in obedience. He lived until to an age 30 when He started to minister under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit to heal, save, work miracles, and make disciples. He didn't come the first time to take over the Roman Legion. When He Died for us He saved us. He came to send us an anointing too for us to be IN HIM and become Christ-like, made over in His image. For three and a half years He walked the earth in serving up ministry from God's heart to our need like a Papa ministering to his son or daughter in the dramatic present. The Four New Testament Gospels give a precise accurate description of His Life and Healing Deliverance Ministry & Purpose, to forgive us all our sins, that is to believe Him in the heart confess Him with the mouth continually=salvation-for we come to Him for salvation. And to love not our life to the death, (further commanded in the Books: the Gospels, Romans, Timothy, Revelation etc.) is through Him the only grace way to Heaven, and its by grace thoroughly through faith in Him. By grace and through faith in Him we enter His Kingdom is paramount He being the King to the Kingdom. Our goal is to follow Him as our all in all is everything then on. "God wants to give you an extraordinary life in the realm of influence He's called you to. He will do this by His grace" (John Bevere writes.) He's called you to change and to impact your world for Him. But ask Him what or who is your gift? God doesn't want anyone lost in other words or 'left behind.' Soon there may be no delay by God in being longsuffering toward us. Salvation brings love, joy, and peace in abundance of these. Kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Even Happiness is yours if you pursue Godliness and Righteousness according to His Word that comes with contentment. In the pursuit is the perception. It's not being more healthy, wealthy, and wise, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. To be saved, and Jesus Himself said the way is narrow and difficult to Life and the way to destruction is broad and its gate wide and many go (to their consequences thereat) and perish. Hell is a real destination. And so we need a faith in God, a belief of faith in Him through tribulation- and even suffering that grows (into born of God life: zoe in Greek,) believing He is a personal God concerned with all our struggles ultimately bringing us into a wholeness and an eternal life if we believe present tense and abide "in Christ." Your trouble can be the fertile ground for God performing saving you. It may be just what He needs to get your attention. It's from sin to righteousness: doing the thing that is right. 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 very loving to the victims of those transgressors. Sin is lawlessness and transgression of the Law of God which Law was given to us through Moses by God and was through angels: this results in death to those under the Law to show us that we fail God as well as God's attributes: Holiness and Love by misdirecting an inner voice, namely the Holy Spirit's voice which can be convicting. You can be instead in God's Family where Christ is the Fulfillment of the Law within each of us lived Romans 8:3. But one can see the point is we fail God. God in Christ is saying in essence we need a Savior to save us from our sinful passions for at many times and in many ways we have gone way over the edge in sin before God. If we have ever lied we have sinned before God and if we have ever stolen we have sinned also. Lusted? You did fail if you have grace to believe it humble. God will reveal it individually. 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 these because God's Law judges such attitude/behavior (See Jesus' words in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5,6,7.) How do we deal with these failings? For as for as many of the Body of Christ God shall call, God's love creating Heaven/Paradise He God created creation to spend eternity there and to live there requires perfection indeed. Otherwise as soon as one of us showed up there, life would be no longer Paradise. Jesus went to the Father to show opened up is Paradise and Heaven and He succeeded! He won the Title Deed to it all: He can open up the Seal to the sealed sevenfold-sealed scroll (see Rev.) 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. To have Heaven and this Life in the Son now you have to come under The New Covenant. In mercy God Himself provided the way to Himself and Eternity in that we could not bridge when He sent Himself in the form of Jesus Christ as Savior: 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 which was vindication and which so many villify to their own swift destruction. God is Provider and provision. In victory (His) of that way He lived and died and rose again in our place before God so we could accept it: "it is Finished" by the Son and so somehow to reach to the resurrection from the dead (meaning a super superlative place in Heaven.) About this Paul said in the Epistle to the Philipians 'our conversation is in Heaven from whence also we look for the Savior!' would take place fulfilled at the Rapture or when we die. This is the first resurrection. He died in weakness strong it seemed to some, a crucifixion (II Corinthians 13:4,) but that was Friday... Sunday's a Coming! and on Sunday.. "Why did He Die?," as a child I asked. He Arose from death and evermore lives by the Power of God in victorious fashion! That Resurrection of our Lord's has been and is 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 there. He had gone to the cross to suffer God's wrath in an eternity in those six hours on the cross. He suffered our punishment of hell full blown: the eternity of eternities of time there for six hours on the cross He was punished by God's Wrath and Won: came out the other side Whole and intact. His life didn't need justification. He was perfect. 100 % God, 100 % man. It took an Eternal Being to save us Eternally. He became sin and had the full blown strength of God's Judgment, of Punishment, and Wrath poured out upon Himself and His own Blood saved Him without the smell of smoke! Now we can go free. Justification: just as if I'd never sinned is ours. Can you not see the Majesty or Magnificence and significance? And so can you not respond in kindness to a God Who that in one act one time once for all Eternity did Die and in that application of it you can be saved? You can have faith to be healed and saved. You can be assured if you do: A certain salvation. A salvation that is certain that enters within the veil, God's Presence! It is an anchor to the soul. Lay hold of His salvation. We glorify God and love Him in obeying Him. But you have to be IN Christ to win Eternal Life. You have to be identified with Christ. In other words, His Presence in you in believing for complete salvation and outside you has to be applied to your life and it's all a Gift by grace to those that obey by faith through grace enduring with endurance to the end (in Greek, grace, is Charis.) In fact hearing God's voice through the obedience of faith Paul spoke of in Romans chapter one is active to endure with and inside of you to the end and leads to holiness. God will complete the work He starts in you. Jesus lived that perfect life perfectly through the Power of the Holy Spirit. "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 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 of Him and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior humbly in a low bow of the knee before Him. Paul said He bowed low before God and so should we. Jesus is Who we put our faith and trust in and we deny ourselves, take up our cross, and FOLLOW HIM! There is a holiness God demands without which no man shall see God. Some are hard but true sayings. By 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. Its not a bed of roses when you accept Him. Salvation is the way God makes things and is of the Lord. God can put us in the eye of the storm in peace in Him. NO other name under Heaven given among men is needed to be saved Acts 4:12. His Name is Jesus. It is my desire that you will pray fervently earnestly and in prayer unceasing to determine to know God rightly to the point that God knows you through Christ and determine to walk towards Him: sincerely ask God to be saved through Christ's Blood and be committed to live for greatness in His Kingdom in Christ so you can be ready should He call you home to Heaven soon (Philippians 3:20-21.) Read all the Bible and find Jesus Christ, the Living Word, as your salvation. It's for everyone! It's a new spiritual life. It's not religious jargon nor acts of the type of fig leaves nor ecclesiasticalness. You're not turning over a new leaf in getting saved but turning to the Lord for repentance God will grant. Rome wasn't built in a day. It's not of works nor by oneself but of Him and by grace we're saved through faith to the enduring end. 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 to be my Savior from sin (it's not reformation but transformation.) God's Presence became real. It's made by God so a child can understand the Gospel message and thus be saved. It has ever more better and improved to have been a better fuller life since then for me but also an Abundant Life in Him. And I have never regretted a moment of it!
