Heaven or Hell

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:16 KJV

The eternal torment of hell (yes, it’s a real place) awaits those unwilling to believe. Eternal righteousness, peace, and joy awaits those who believe and yield their lives to Jesus the Christ of God.

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8‭-‬10 KJV


Seeking the Lost

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10 KJV

We are not saved so that we can have a better life while living like we did. We are a new creation with a new purpose. It is now our call and duty to serve Jesus and carry out the great commission. We are to win the lost no matter the cost.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19 KJV

We are no longer our own we were bought with a price. We are the servants of the Lord.

And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 KJV


The Gospel

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:2 KJV

Preachers have a resposibility to declare the whole truth to the listeners; the whole counsel of God which reproves, rebukes, and exhorts.

The Gospel is not just sweet words that tickle the ears but it is powerful to deliver, cleanse, and make whole.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16 KJV

The tendency of our society to reject anything that makes them uncomfortable is extremely destructive. They are, then, drawn to purveyors of heretical error.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2 Timothy 4:3 KJV

Be teachable. Yield to the whole counsel of God. Be set free from sin and death.


Love

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV

He died and rose so that we could live. Yes, Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead so that you and I could live.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:8‭-‬10 KJV

Why did He do It? Limitless Love.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV


No Other Way

He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. Matthew 26:42 KJV

Jesus crucified on the Cross was the only way the salvation of men could be accomplished. There is none other.

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 KJV

Jesus is not a way to heaven and peace with God, He is the only way.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6 KJV

If salvation could have come any other way the Father would never have allowed His Son to go to the cross.


Crucified For You

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV

Jesus took the punishment due us for our sin. On Friday they beat and crucified the Son of God. He laid His life down and tasted death for us.

On Sunday He rose from the Dead.

He now lives and gives life to whosoever receives Him as Lord and Savior.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV


Covenant

Just as the rainbow holds the promise of God that He will not destroy the inhabitants of the earth by flood, so those in Jesus, the Christ, can be assured that they will not spend eternity in hell.

Believing faith in Jesus brings God’s covenant promise of eternal life with Him.

Jesus still saves, heals and delivers.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:21 KJV

Call on Him today.
