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.

Which Gate Will You Enter Through?

0

The world is now being presented with 2 very STARK and VERY DIFFERENT choices…2 “GATES” if you will:-)

One, is THE WIDE GATE represented by Bill Gates who has already begun offering the world the promise of economic prosperity & physical peace & safety through his Coronavirus vaccine he is working furiously to make available to every human being on the planet along with his patented implantable cryptocurrency system (patent # 060606) which uses body activity data which some speculate may be the underlying technological platform for the FUTURE Mark of the Beast described in Revelation 13.
(*Believers in Jesus Christ will be raptured prior to the 7 year Tribulation and will not be here on this earth when the Mark of The Beast is issued.)

The other “GATE” being offered to the world is the “narrow” or “straight” gate as described by Jesus in Matthew 13 which is symbolic & representitive of Jesus Himself.

One GATE is broad and leads to destruction.

The other GATE is narrow and leads to eternal life.

The NARROW GATE is The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ.

The WIDE GATE that leads to destruction (eternity in hell) is every other works based salvific path to heaven (i.e., Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Roman Catholicism, Lordship Salvation, Calvinism, Arminianism, Universalism, Mormonism, Bill Gate’s Satanic vaccine & mark of beast-like implantable technolgies etc…)

In order to be saved & spend eternity in Heaven, a person must enter through THE NARROW GATE!!! To enter through the NARROW GATE a person must recognize & acknowledge that they are a sinner in need of a savior and that Jesus Christ is THE ONE TRUE & ONLY Savior who died for all of their sins past, present and future & BELIEVE in His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE for the remission of all their sins and eternal life:-)

Trusting in ANYTHING apart from what Jesus ALONE did is THE WIDE GATE that leads to destruction! If you have trusted in anything or anyone apart from Jesus (and in His death, burial and ressurection ALONE) for the forgiveness of your sins and eternal life, I pray TODAY would be The Day of Salvation for you! “BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and you WILL be saved.” (Acts 16:31)

BELIEVE in Jesus alone!

Not Jesus + your good works

Not Jesus + water baptism

Not Jesus + living a good life

Not Jesus + repenting of all your sins

Not Jesus + speaking in tongues

Faith in Jesus ALONE + NOTHING = Forgiveness of all sins & eternal life!!!!

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in through it.” (MATTHEW 7:13 KJV)

Most Common False Teachings Refuted With God’s Word

0

God’s Word cannot contradict itself.

If there are over 200 verses in the Bible that says salvation & justification is by God’s grace alone through faith alone in The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ alone, then there must be a logical explanation for the 1 or 2 odd verses that may SEEM to contradict them when read in proper context.

I’ve provided a list of what I consider to be the main false teachings that are the most frequently propagated and the Biblical refutations for each one to help encourage and edify The Body.

May we carefully heed the vital words of wisdom that God’s Holy Spirit inspired Paul to pen in his Second Letter to young Timothy when we handle God’s holy, infallible, innerant & authoritative Word:

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) KJV

Be encouraged today!!!!

The false teacher: “You must prove you are saved by your works.”

God’s Word: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. This is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God. Not by works lest any man should boast.” (EPHESIANS 2:8-9) KJV

The false teacher: “You must overcome till the end by continuing to obey the commandments to be saved.”

God’s Word: “Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1st JOHN 5:5) KJV

The false teacher: “You are saved by grace through faith but you must do your part to be saved & can lose your salvation if you don’t.”

God’s Word:  “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall NEVER perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.” (John 10:27-30) KJV

The false teacher: “You must turn from all your sins and stop sinning and believe in Jesus to be saved.”

God’s Word: “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) KJV

*Neither Jesus nor any of His disciples or apostles ever told anyone NOT ONE SINGLE TIME EVER they needed to “turn from their sins,” “stop sinning” or “repent of their sins” to BE saved.

The false teacher: “If you continue to willfully sin after you are saved you can lose your salvation or is proof you were never saved to begin with.”

God’s Word: “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1st John 1:8) KJV

*The only requirement for salvation is to BELIEVE The Gospel (that Christ died for all your sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures justifying YOU in the eyes of God;-)

The false teacher: “You can stop believing in Jesus and lose your salvation.”

God’s Word: “If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.” (2 Timothy 2:13)

*Our faith may grow weak, But His never does. He who saves us keeps us saved forever!!!

The false teacher: “God can change His mind if you sin too much and take away your salvation.”

God’s Word: “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” (Romans 11:29) KJV

*salvation is a free gift a person receives the instant (NANOSECOND) they trust in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all their sins and eternal life and once that gift is received, God promises He will never repent (change His Mind).

The false teacher: “Christ is coming for a sinless righteous Bride. If you have sin in your life you will be miss the rapture and be cast into outer darkness.”

God’s Word: “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference.” (Romans 3:22) KJV

*A believer has no righteousness apart from the imputed righteousness of Christ.

The false teacher: “You must live a life of obedience and do good works to be saved.”

God’s Word: “Then said they unto Him (Jesus), What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘This is THE work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent.'” (John 6:28-29) KJV

* The ONLY work required for any person to be saved is to trust in Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior and if you have not done so, I pray that you would today!

To be saved forever:

Admit you are a sinner in need of a savior.

Believe that Jesus Christ is THE Savior for all mankind Who died for all YOUR sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day according to the Scriptures. (1st Corinthians 15:1-4)

Call upon the Name of The Lord. “For ALL who call on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ WILL be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

The One & Only Requirement for Salvation

0

The ONLY requirement for being born again/going to Heaven is genuinely believing the Gospel (that Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd day for your justification).

It is NOT based on ANYTHING else. (Not based on how frequently you go to a church building, how much you read your bible, how you live your life after you are saved, how much you “set your heart on Jesus” or ANYTHING else!!!)

SHOULD a born again believer have regular fellowship with other believers? Yes!

SHOULD a born again believer read and study their Bibles? Yes!

SHOULD a born again believer grow spiritually and live lives of purity and holiness? Yes!

SHOULD a born again believer increasingly set their hearts on Jesus? Yes!

But the reality is that NONE of these things are REQUIRED for anyone to be saved.

The ONLY requirement to be saved is trusting in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ on The Cross ALONE. (His death, burial and ressurection) Period!!!

What MUST I do to be saved,” the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas? “BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and you WILL BE SAVED.” (Acts 16:31)

The ONLY “MUST” for anyone to be saved is to BELIEVE in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE. Period!

This is vital because each born again believer will grow spiritually at different rates.

Some will read/study their Bibles and attend Church more often than others. Some will live increasing lives of purity and others will struggle their entire lives with certain besetting sins. Some will dedicate more of their lives to Jesus than others. And all of these things will have certain earthly (temporal) consequences including potential loss of certain rewards in heaven.

But NONE of these things will result in loss of salvation/going to heaven or being left behind at The Rapture.

Being 100% rapture ready & heaven bound are NOT rewards for good behavior.

They are PROMISES for ALL who have trusted in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all their sins & eternal life. Period!

And if you are trusting in ANYTHING else other than Christ alone and His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE for the remission of ALL your sins past, present and future and eternal life, I pray you would repent (change your mind) & trust in Christ ALONE and be saved!

The Main Reason People Reject God’s Grace…

0

People always ask: How come people continually complicate & reject something so simple as the Gospel of Grace?

I believe the same spirit that that caused Satan and 1/3 of the angels to be kicked out of Heaven is the same spirit that causes people to reject & (sadly) mock God’s Grace today.

It’s the spirit of PRIDE.

The same spirit that says, “I’m not that bad.”

“There’s something inherently good about me.”

“I can do this salvation thing on my own.”

“I’m righteous apart from the righteousness of God.”

This SAME spirit of PRIDE is what drives ALL religions.

But Christianity isn’t religion (i.e., what I have to DO to establish my own righteousness to get to heaven).

Christianity is truth!

Ultimate TRUTH!

Jesus said, “I am the way, the TRUTH and the life. No one comes to The Father in Heaven but through Me.” (John 14:6)

It’s simple child-like FAITH in what Jesus Christ DID on Calvary’s Cross 2,000 yrs ago that makes us 100% righteous in the eyes of God The Father. Nothing more than simple child like FAITH in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ on The Cross A-L-O-N-E!!!!!!

That is all that God The Father requires to be forgiven of all your sins and to spend eternity in Heaven…

Coming to the END of yourself and admitting that there is NOTHING good in your flesh and that only Jesus Christ can save you from your sins…

Praying this resonates with & ministers to someone..

STERN WARNING TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE & TEACH “REPENTANCE OF SINS” IS REQUIRED FOR SALVATION. By Gregg Jackson

0

No matter how many times I do videos or posts saying that neither Jesus nor any of His apostles or disciples EVER told anyone EVER ONCE that they needed to “repent of their sins” to be saved, I always get at least 10 comments saying, “But Peter said to ‘repent’ in Acts 2:38.”

And every time, I tell them the same thing that Peter never said “repent of your sins.” Nor did Jesus EVER! Nor did ANY of His apostles or disciples EVER TELL ANYONE TO EVER “REPENT OF THEIR SINS” to be saved!!! EVER!!!!

This LIE that the Bible teaches a person must “repent of all their sins,” “turn from their sins,” or “stop sinning” to be saved has been repeated so often from so many false teachers in churches and here on YouTube that people actually believe it in spite of the FACT that (please forgive my redundancy) NEITHER JESUS NOR ANY OF HIS APOSTLES OR DISCIPLES EVER TOLD ANYONE EVER TO “REPENT OF THEIR SINS” TO BE SAVED.

NEVER ONCE!!!

PLEASE PEOPLE…READ YOUR BIBLE FOR YOURSELVES!!!

STOP repeating, regurgitating & promulgating this LIE from the PIT OF HELL!

Eternal salvation is by God’s grace alone through FAITH ALONE in Jesus Christ alone!!! PERIOD!!!

When Paul and Silas were asked by the Philippian jailer, “what must I do to be saved?” they didn’t tell him “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and repent of all your sins to be saved.”

NO!!!! They told him to “BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.” (Acts 16:31)

Sola fide! Sola fide! Sola fide!

In the few times the word “repent” is used in regards to salvation (It is never used once in John’s Gospel), as I and many other Grace teachers, have explained numerous times, it is translated from the Greek word, “Metanoia” which means to “change one’s mind” to go from NOT believing in Jesus Christ ALONE for salvation and eternal life to BELIEVING in HIM ALONE for salvation and eternal life.

“Metanoi” doesn’t mean to ” repent of sins,” “turn from sins,” or to “stop sinning”!!!!!!!!!

“Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.” (Proverbs 30:6)

Where will you spend eternity?

0

If there’s one thing that I hope and pray this Coronavirus Global Pandemic is doing is making people realize & think about the brevity & fragility of life and what happens after a person dies.

Some believe there is nothing after the grave and that a person just ceases to be or is reincarnated as an animal or becimes a “god” of their own planet like the Mormons believe…

But the Bible is clear: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) According to God’s Word, after a person dies, he/she will be judged.

Those who have placed their faith in the Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ alone (and not in ANY of their own works) will go before the Bema Seat to be judged for their works. Not for their sins, since they were ALL forgiven the very MOMENT the born again believer BELIEVED in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ alone (His death, burial & resurrection) but for their works for the issuance of REWARDS!

BUT those who rejected the FREE gift of salvation by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone, will go to THE GREAT WHITE THRONE to be judged for their works. And no matter how “good,” “upstanding,” & “ethical” they were during their lives, they will ALL fall short because they ALL failed to DO the ONLY work God ever required of them which was “to believe on The One Whom God (The Father) has sent (The Son Jesus Christ).” (John 6:29)

All of them trusted in “being a good person,” “not doing any of the major sins,” “going to church regularly,” “daily repentance of sins,” “getting water baptized” etc… But NONE of them ever trusted in their hearts in Jesus Christ ALONE for the remission of all their sins and eternal life.

And they will all spend eternity in The Lake of Fire (which is a real place, really hot & really FOREVER)… a place I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to go to. (Rev 20)

But the GOOD NEWS is that you don’t ever have to worry about going there if you would repent (change your mind) & BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ alone RIGHT NOW for the remission of all your sins past, present and future & eternal life. If you have not yet done so, I would encourage you to do it TODAY! For TODAY is the day of salvation and tomorrow is promised to NO ONE!

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

Choose life!

Eternal life through FAITH in Jesus Christ ALONE!!!

Hope to see you at The Bema Seat soon!
