Preaching The Gospel to myself…

Salvation Has Always Been By God’s Grace Alone Through Faith Alone in Jesus Christ Alone from Genesis to Revelation!

0

The Super Apostle Paul who received The Gospel directly from the Lord Jesus Christ wrote and taught in Romans chapter 4 and Galatians chapter 3 in addition to many of his other letters that justification is and always has been by faith ALONE.

Not just for those living after the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ but also ALL the OT prophets such as Abraham and David who Paul makes it explicitly clear were saved by faith alone and not of works.

In Abraham’s case, his faith was credited to him as righteousness when he BELIEVED God’s promise to him that he would be the father of many nations which was 50 years BEFORE he put Isaac on the altar on Mt. Moriah (Which many archeologists believe to be Golgatha where Jesus was 1000s of yrs later to be crucified.)

Those living before Christ placed their faith in the COMING future Messiah (“The Seed of the woman” Who is Messiah Jesus) spoken of by ALL of the Old Testament prophets and first announced in Genesis chapter 3. Not just SOME of the Old Testament prophets.

ALL of the Old Testament prophets prophesied about the Coming Messiah Jesus! Those living after the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ were and are justified by faith in His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE.

If you believe and teach that ANYBODY in the Old Testament was saved by works, your issue isn’t with me (don’t shoot the proverbial “messenger”), it’s with The Apostle Paul and The Word of God which makes it explicitly and unambiguously clear that salvation has always been on the basis of God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and never of works from Genesis to Revelation.

And you may be asking yourself why this even matters. Well, I believe it matters because what is taught and believed about how people were saved in previous dispensations influences how people perceive The Gospel in general NOW!

When we tell people that those who were saved before Jesus weren’t saved because they placed their faith in Him, then we have GREATLY diminished His sacrifice. Because Jesus died for ALL the sins of the world from the beginning of time until the end of time and for ALL sinners of all ages and all times.

If we teach that Jesus only saved sinners who lived after Him, we are essentially saying that Jesus is only the savior in the New Testament. And in doing so, we significantly minimize His sacrifice and The Gospel in general.

Also, when we claim that God saved people by works in the Old Testament, we are violating and therefore UNDERMINING God’s inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word which plainly tells us as I have shown above that justification (salvation) has ALWAYS been by faith alone including all who ever lived…in EVERY dispensation.

Either faith in Jesus WAS and IS sufficient for the salvation of all who ever would trust Him ALONE as savior or it’s not.

There is no middle of the road.

The Evidence of Salvation

0

The evidence of one’s eternal salvation is not the fruit they produce, their works, their obedience to the law, their repenting of sins, their ability to speak in tongues, their believing in their mind and their heart as if the 2 were not connected, their changed life, their being water baptized, their having a supernatural “experience” & not because of someone’s dream supposedly from God that said they are either saved or not saved.

The ONLY BIBLICAL evidence that anyone is eternally saved is whether or not they have BELIEVED The Gospel.

Plain and simple!

If you have BELIEVED that The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ died for ALL your sins past, present and future and was raised from the dead 3 days later according to the Scriptures for your justification, you were IMMEDIATELY baptized by the Holy Spirit of Christ into The Body of Christ and sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption and promised that you will never perish, never be plucked out of The Father’s Hand or The Hand of Jesus and that NOTHING will EVER separate you from the love that is IN Christ Jesus.

Period!

The Thief on The Cross Exemplifies the Simplicity of Salvation

0

The episode of The Thief on The Cross (Luke 23) truly represents the Awesome SIMPLICITY of Salvation.

While one of the thieves mocked Jesus, the other thief (the penitent thief) defended Him: “But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” (Luke 23:40-41)

Then the penitent thief turned to Jesus… “And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.’ And He said to him, ‘Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43)

In this brief exchange, the penitent thief literally goes from a future of eternal death to the promise of Eternal Life in an instant (in a NANOSECOND)!!!

He acknowledges he is a sinner in need of a savior and calls upon THE Savior, Jesus Christ, to save him which Jesus promises He will do that very day! (Salvation is an instantaneous event!)

Jesus doesn’t ask the thief if he believed in his heart as well as believing in his mind.

Jesus doesn’t tell the thief it’s too late to get saved because he didn’t get water baptized.

Jesus doesn’t tell the thief he must repent of every individual sin he ever committed during his life to be saved and if he misses one he goes to hell.

Jesus doesn’t tell him that he will wait to see if the thief produces an adequately changed life and sufficient fruit in the next few hours on the cross before guaranteeing him eternal life.

Jesus doesn’t tell the thief that He was only going to die for part of the thief’s sins and that the thief would have to go to purgatory to get the rest atoned for (burned off) or repent for all his future sins.

Jesus didn’t tell the thief he needed to speak in tongues to prove he was really saved.

The ONLY requirement for the thief to be saved was acknowledging he was a sinner in need of a savior and trusting (BELIEVING) in THE Savior, Jesus Christ, to save him!

The thief repented (changed his mind) and went from NOT believing in Jesus as savior to BELIEVING in Him as savior and asked Jesus to save Him! The thief’s very brief encounter/exchange with Jesus perfectly demonstrates the SIMPLICITY of Salvation! He admitted he was a sinner in need of a savior and trusted in Jesus alone to save him!!! The thief on the cross BELIEVED that Jesus was the Messiah, The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, ALL the OT prophets spoke of Who was in the process of shedding His blood for the remission of ALL the thief’s sins & Who promised to give Him eternal life THAT VERY DAY with Jesus in PARADISE!!!!!

Some falsely teach that the thief on the cross is an exception to the rule and that God granted him a “waiver” on the other “requirements” many false teachers teach are requirements for salvation (water baptism, speaking in tongues, having a changed life, following the commandments, repenting of his sins daily etc…).

But in reality, the thief on the cross represents the standard…the ONLY WAY a person is saved… By acknowleding you are a sinner in need of a savior and trusting (BELIEVING) in THE Savior, Jesus Christ, ALONE (and in no other works) to save you! It’s that simple!

Every person who has ever been saved has been saved the exact same way the thief on the cross was saved from Genesis to Revelation!!!

By BELIEVING on the Lord Jesus Christ as savior! Either looking forward to and trusting (BELIEVING) in the promised Coming Messiah (“seed of the woman”) as all the OT saints did or looking back and trusting (BELIEVING) in Christ’s finished redemptive work on The Cross (His death, burial and ressurection) as we do now!

“BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and you WILL be saved” (Acts 16:31)

“For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever would BELIEVE on Him would not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)

“For it is by GRACE you have been SAVED through FAITH. This is not of yourselves. It is the GIFT of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

“Verily, verily I say unto you. He who believes in Me HAS everlasting life” (John 6:47)

Jesus Himself Affirmed ETERNAL SECURITY/Once Saved Always Saved!

0

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:38-40)

1. The will of Jesus is to do the will of The Father.

2. The will of The Father is that The Son would lose NONE The Father gives The Son and raise up ALL believers on the last day.

3. The will of The Father is that The Son WILL lift ALL believers at the last day and give them ALL everlasting life.

The BOTTOM LINE is that IF salvation could be lost then The Son (Jesus) COULD fail in doing the will of The Father which we know with 100% CERTAINTY CANNOT be true since Jesus Himself says that He ALWAYS does the will of The Father! (John 8:29).

Moreover, Jesus states in John Chapter 10:

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” (John 10:27-30)

Again. ANOTHER IRON CLAD IRREVOCABLE promise of Jesus who PROMISES (GUARANTEES) that He gives eternal life to ALL who come to Him (through faith alone) & will NEVER PERISH or be plucked from His Hand or The Father’s Hand!

So when a person denies eternal security they are essentially calling Jesus a liar. But the truth is that Jesus CANNOT lie! He always does the will of The Father and gives ALL born again believers COMPLETE assurance they are saved forever!

Hallelujah praise Jesus!!!!

Some mistakenly believe you can lose your salvation, and if this is you, I pray that you would prayerfully consider and TRUST the Words of Jesus quoted above!

God bless you!

How to Avoid The (Very Soon to Begin) 7 Year Tribulation (a.k.a “Hell on Earth”)

0

Today, facemasks are largely required to conduct commerce (to buy and sell.) And these facemasks and other restrictions (spacing, social distancing, testing, tracking, tracing etc…) are all FORESHADOWINGS of the SOON to commence 7 Year Tribulation detailed in the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the last Book of The Bible which EXPLICITLY details how things will end.

The Age of Grace dispensation is about to end when the Church is raptured…which I and MANY others believe to be VERY SOON!!!!

The next dispensation, according to God’s Timeline, is the 7 year Tribulation and then the (1,000 year) Millennial Kingdom followed by the New Heavens and New Earth and Eternal State! During The Tribulation (AFTER the Body of Christ is raptured)

The Mark of The Beast and worship of the Anti-Christ will be REQUIRED to buy and sell.

We are in the end times guys!

The Chuch (those who have believed in The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ ALONE (and in NONE of their own works) for the remission of all their sins past, present and future and eternal life are about to be raptured (caught up to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven forever!!!!).

And those (non believers) will be left behind for the 7 year Tribulation that that anti-Christ & false prophet (Pope Francis) will rule over. If you are a non-believer and here for 7 years of Hell on Earth, DO NOT take the Mark of the Beast microchip in your right hand or forehead. It is a one way ticket to the Lake of Fire where you will spend eternity. (Revelation 13). You will most likely have to get your head chopped off for rejecting the mark of the beast and refusing to worship him during the Tribulation. but you will be SAVED and receive eternal life if you believe The Gospel (that Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures)!

Please read John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10, Acts 16:31 and 1st Corinthians 15:1-4!

To AVOID the 7 year Tribulation (a.k.a Hell on Earth), believe on the Lord Jesus Christ NOW! Trust Him ALONE as your Lord and Savior and not in ANY of your own works!!!!

May TODAY be the Day of Salvation for you!!!!

BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO REDEFINE FAITH HERE ON YOUTUBE..

BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO REDEFINE FAITH HERE ON YOUTUBE…

Guys, there are some false teachers here on YouTube teaching that faith and belief are 2 different things. One who professes to be a grace believer but who mixes law and grace constantly, claims that many people believe in Jesus but don’t possess “saving faith.”

There is nothing new here since many false teachers misapply amd misappropriate “even the demons believe and tremble” from The Book of James as an attempt to demonstrate that believing in Jesus isn’t sufficient for a person to be saved.

Of course, demons, like the head honcho demon himself, Satan, believe that Jesus existed and that He is the Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son. But they have never BELIEVED in Him as Lord & Savior and, as a result, shudder in fear, because they are aware that their eternal destination is The Lake of Fire.

But the works salvationist false teacher will claim that “even the demons” believe in Jesus implying that they believed in Him as Lord and Savior but didn’t demonstrate sufficient “saving faith” to actually be saved and that the same thing can happen to a Christian who has believed on Christ but didn’t demonstrate sufficient “saving faith” during their lives and can end up in the Lake of Fire with the demons. UTTER AND COMPLETE HOGWASH!!!!!

The truth is that as I and many others have explained, belief comes from the Greek word, “pisteuo” and it means to be firmly persuaded that something is true, to entrust, TO BELIEVE.

Belief and faith are used interchangeably throughout the Bible and are SYNONYMOUS!!! When the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, “what must I do to be saved,” they responded by telling him to “BELIEVE on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31 KJV)

And when Jesus forgives (saves) the sinful woman in Luke’s Gospel at the Pharisee’s house, He tells her that her “FAITH has saved her.” (Luke 7:50)

FAITH=BELIEF

Those who believe in and teach that it is not enough to BELIEVE in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all your sins and eternal life and that a person must demonstrate additional “saving faith” are essentially attempting to add an additional requirement to the Gospel.

They are playing a VERY dangerous game by attempting to redefine what it means to believe. Words have precise and specific meaning! And we are told to RIGHTLY divide the WORD of TRUTH!

Asserting that belief and faith have different meanings confuses people and ultimately backloads works. Those who teach this nonsense are essentially teaching Calvinism. Plain and simple!

They will say, “It’s not enough to believe The Gospel (that Jesus died for all your sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures for your justification). You must also demonstrate saving faith that endures till the end as proof you are saved and if you don’t have a sufficiently changed life, you may want to ask yourself if you were ever truly saved to begin with.”

But I am here to tell you that faith and belief are the same thing!

Saving faith IS BELIEVING that Jesus died for your sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures.

Saving faith is BELIEVING The Gospel! Period!

We are not saved by believing in Christ (in His death, burial and ressurection) and then kept saved by our continued “saving faith.”

God saves a person FOREVER the NANOSECOND he/she believes in (places their faith in) His Son Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior. God sovereignly saves you and sovereignly keeps you saved forever! He promises he will never leave you nor forsake you. That you can never be plucked from His Hand, that NOTHING can separate you from His love, that you will never perish and that even when you are faithless He always remians faithful and that He will NEVER change His mind (repent) about the FREE GIFT of salvation He gave you!!!

Ironically (and sadly), those who claim believing in Jesus and His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE isn’t sufficient for a person to be saved and that they must demonstrate additional “saving faith” to truly be saved are demonstrating that they, THEMSELVES, have not trusted in Jesus Christ ALONE for salvation and in doing so have placed their faith in a different Gospel and are therefore in a state of UNbelief because they are ultimately trusting in themselves and their own “saving faith” demonstrated by their changed lives and behaviors instead of trusting in Christ and what He accomplished on The Cross alone..

But Jesus died for these folks as well and my prayer is that they would repent (change their mind) and BELIEVE The Gospel ALONE and KNOW that belief and faith are SYNONYMOUS and that BELIEVING in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior IS the ONLY requirement for a person to be saved for all of eternity!!!!!

“For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever would BELIEVE in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

The Bottom Line…

0

Here is the BOTTOM LINE:

If you HAVE trusted in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all your sins and eternal life you WILL be raptured to heaven in the twinkling of an eye PRIOR to the 7 Year Tribulation (Time of Jacob’s Trouble aka “hell on earth”) which is about to begin. (1st Thessalonians 4:17-18, 1st Corinthians 15:51-53)

If you have NOT trusted in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all your sins and eternal life (including those who PARTIALLY trust in Jesus & His finished redemptive work on The Cross AND PARTIALLY in your own works) you will be LEFT BEHIND during the 7 year reign of the anti-Christ and Mark of the Beast System (Revelation 13). Again, it will be HELL ON EARTH and if you believe The Gospel of Jesus Christ and get saved you will have to refuse the Mark of the Beast and likely die a martyr (and become a “Tribulation Saint”).

If this is YOU, may TODAY be the Day of Salvation for you!

To get saved NOW and be 100% Rapture Ready & 100% Heaven Bound and avoid 7 Years of Hell on Earth and ultimately ETERNITY IN HELL itself:

ADMIT you are a sinner in need of a savior.

BELIEVE in THE Savior, The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ and trust that He died for ALL YOUR sins past, present and future, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures justifying YOU in the eyes of God and that He gives you eternal life as a FREE GIFT. (1st Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9)

CALL on the Name of the Lord! “For ALL who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ WILL be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

“What you believe about the Gospel ALONE determines whether or not you are saved”

0

In general, I do believe it’s not what people SAY but what they DO that demonstrates who they really are & what they really believe.

For example, if a person talks about how much they value family but spends all their free time AWAY from their family, I must conclude that they don’t really believe what they profess they believe.

But when it comes to whether someone is actually SAVED or not, I beieve we must give PRIMARY consideration to what they SAY they believe (about The Gospel in particular) above & beyond what they DO.

If a person who claims to be a Christian says they believe they are saved because they have believed The Gospel alone (i.e., that Christ died for their sins, was buried, and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures), I must assume they are my brother or sister in Christ irregardless of any external physical behavior that may lead me to believe otherwise since I don’t know everything that person is going through/struggling with in their lives.

But, false man-centered humanistic theological/religious systems teach the opposite. For example, Calvinism/Lordship Salvation teaches that if a self-professing Christian doesn’t demonstrate adequate external works, “fruit,” and a “changed life,” then it’s to be assumed that they were never saved in the first place (i.e., that they never possessed “saving faith”). The focus is on the external actions & behaviors instead of the profession of faith which (most-likely) reveals the person who claims they were saved by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone has believed in vain because they are looking for evidence of their salvation beyond Christ’s finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE for the remission of all their sins and eternal life.

And that is the central problem with ALL man-centered theological/religious systems (Calvinism, Arminianism, Universalism, Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, JWs, etc…)

They all, to varying degrees, elevate mans’ self-effort (what they DO) above justification by faith in what Christ has DONE alone. They ALL add to The Gospel & therefore NULLIFY The Gospel by adding some type of stipulations or requirements to the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE.

If this is you, and you have been in a man-centered religious system where the pastor or priest told you that Christ did “His part” and now you have to “do your part,” I am here to tell you that you have been lied to!

There is no “your part” to do to be forgiven of all your sins (past, present and future) & to spend eternity in Heaven apart from BELIEVING The Gospel.

The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ, ACCOMPLISHED it ALL!

He died on The Cross for ALL the sins of the world ever comitted. He cancelled out YOUR entire sin debt!

He ALONE defeated sin & death forever! You must be perfect (sinless) to enter heaven.

And God knew you & I never could be in our sin stained flesh, so He sent His Son to pay that debt for us! He Who knew no sin became sin for us that we may become the righteousness of God in Him!

“For God so loved the world He gave His only Begotten Son that whosoever would BELIEVE in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Jesus took ALL of our sin, nailed it to The Cross and buried it into the ground and when we trust (BELIEVE) He did it for us, we are ressurected WITH Him unto new ETERNAL life and He promises we will NEVER PERISH!

We are Born Again! 100% Saved from the PENALTY of our sins (eternal death), Sealed by The Holy Spirit of Christ FOREVER), Sanctified by The Perfectly Sinless Blood of Christ, 100% Rapture Ready & 100% Heaven Bound!!!!

If you have been trusting that “doing your part” either saved you or is keeping you saved (i.e., daily repentance of sins, water baptism, speaking in tongues, belonging to a specific church organization, tithing, teaching Sunday School, going to church regularly, being a good person, serving at a soup kitchen, going on mission trips, etc…) I pray that TODAY you would REPENT (change your mind) of TRUSTING in any of those outward actions/behaviors (no matter how meritorious some of them may be) and place your trust (BELIEF/FAITH) SOLEY in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE (In HIS death, burial and ressurection) & become an adopted child of God!

It’s not what you DO that gets you to heaven. It’s SOLEY based on what you genuinely BELIEVE in your heart anout what Jesus ALONE accomplished on YOUR behalf!

And if you genuinely trust in Jesus Christ and His FINISHED REDEMPTIVE WORK ALONE for the remission of all your sins and eternal life, then you have BELIEVED The Gospel and are saved for all eternity!!!!!

God made it UBER simple for ANYONE and EVERYONE to spend eternity with Him!

Hallelujah praise Jesus!!!!

Putting to Rest Once & For All The Absurd & TOTALLY UNBIBLICAL CLAIM that “Repenting of All Your Sins” is Required to be/Stay Saved.

0

The belief that it’s required and even possible to “repent of all your sins” to be saved/stay saved is DEFINITIVE PROOF that any such person who believes this theologically false doctrine is not saved!

If the standard for being saved is repenting of 100% of all the individual sins you’ve ever comitted in your lifetime as well as all your future sins comitted after you are saved, then every person who has ever lived with the exception of Jesus would/will be in hell.

Why you ask?

Simple.

It’s IMPOSSIBLE to repent from every sin you’ve ever committed in your life or will ever commit in the future. As I’ve said (and others such as Pastor Tim) in past videos, you have 70k thoughts/day. If even 1% them don’t meet God’s standard of sinless perfection, the average person would have to repent SEVEN HUNDRED TIMES EVERY DAY!

4,900 Times EVERY WEEK!

254,800 Times PER YEAR!

If you get saved when you’re 50 years old, you’d have to repent of all individual 12,847,000 sins (just in your thoughts not counting physical sins of the flesh & sins of “omission” that you aren’t even aware you’ve comitted.) If you claim that this is even possible for even one single human being who has ever walked this earth, I’ve got news for you…YOU’RE LYING AND VERY MUCH DELUSIONAL!!!

First of all, if you were to attempt to repent of every sinful thought (boredom, pride, anger, lust, jelousy, hatred, fear just to name a few of the MANY THOUSANDS), you wouldn’t have even one single solitary second to actually DO anything apart from repenting 24x7x365.

It doesn’t even make sense to claim salvation is contingent upon repenting of all your sins. IT’S NOT POSSIBLE!

Moreover, sin is transgression of the law. And repenting of sins is FOLLOWING THE LAW. And we KNOW with 100% certainty that salvation is by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone! NOT by WORKS (of THE LAW) lest any man should boast. (EPHESIANS 2:8-9)

Therefore, we can be certain that those who claim salvation is by faith in Jesus + FOLLOWING THE LAW (repenting of their sins) believe in and teach a FALSE gospel and are, according to the Apostle Paul, “accursed.”

It is also important to note that neither Jesus nor any of His Disciples or the apostles ever told anyone they needed to “repent of all their sins,” “turn from their sins,” or “stop sinning” to be saved. NOT ONE SINGLE TIME EVER!

Finally, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, if it were even possible to repent 100% perfectly of EVERY sin you’ve ever committed or will commit in your life, then Jesus died in vain!

But the TRUTH is that The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ, DIDN’T die the most excruciatingly painful death ever recorded in vain. He came to SAVE SINNERS!

If we could save ourselves by our perfect obedience to the law (perfect repentance), THEN Christ died in vain (which we know IS NOT TRUE!) His PRIMARY goal in leaving Glory and coming to earth, born of a virgin, wrapt in human flesh was to live the perfectly sinless life fallen man could never live to pay the penalty for the sin of ALL mankind ever comitted (past, present and future.)

He came to defeat sin & death once and for all! And He DID! “For God made Him who knew no sin to become sin on our behalf that we would become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2nd Corinthians 5:21)

Jesus took our sin on The Cross and when we place our full faith in Him (in His death, burial and ressurection), He imputes His righteousness to us. Sinfull fallen man deserving of eternal hell receives forgiveness of all our sins & eternal life in heaven not based on ANYTHING we do but entirely based on what Jesus Christ ALONE DID on our behalf. Grace is getting what we don’t deserve. And when a person admits they are a sinner in need of a savior and that Jesus Christ is THE Savior who died for ALL their sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day, they are saved forever THROUGH SIMPLE CHILD-LIKE FAITH ALONE!

That is The Gospel! The GOOD NEWS!!!!

But to him that worketh not, but BELIEVETH on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his FAITH is counted for righteousness.” (ROMANS 4:5 KJV)

If you’ve placed your FAITH in Jesus PLUS your “repenting of your sins” (obeying the law) to be/stay saved, I pray you would REPENT (change your mind) from trusting in ANY of your OWN WORKS (following the law) & trust in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE (His Death & Perfectly Sinless Shed Blood on Calvary’s Cross, His Burial & His Resurrection justifying you in God The Father’s Eyes) for the remission of all your sins & eternal life!

May TODAY be the Day of Salvation for you!!!!

Heaven will ONLY be inhabited by those who trust in Jesus Christ and HIS finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE!

For ALL who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ WILL be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

One last thing…I am not saying that AFTER a person has been eternally saved that they shouldn’t confess their sins aginst God and others whom they may have wronged. We all should. But my point is that “repenting of sins” is not a PRECONDITION or REQUIREMENT for salvation.
