Some more Word of God to me

Galatians 1:11-12---“ But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

 

Paul’s gospel states that Christ died for all mans sins, and was buried then rose again on the third day. All we have to do today is truly believe this gospel and we are saved.

 

I Corinthians 15:1-4---“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

Romans 10:9-10---“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

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: Ephesians 2:11-16

And some more

And I [Paul] thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. I Timothy 1:12-16

Not only does God know if one is going to go to heaven but an individual should know if he/she is christ's. One must make their calling sure according to God through Christ.

Galatians 3:29.  And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

A man may go to heaven......
without health, without wealth;
without fame, without a great name;
without learning, without earnings;
without culture, without beauty;
without friends and without ten thousand other things-----
But he can NEVER go to Heaven without My Lord Jesus Christ!!

As true Americans celebrate their liberty, true Chris-
tians should rejoice in the even greater liberty which they
have in Christ.

Our Lord said: "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make you free" and "If the Son, therefore, shall make
you free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:32,36). Likewise
St. Paul declares that believers in Christ have been made
"free from sin" and have become "servants to God," who
deals with us in grace (Rom. 6:22).

It is strange that so many sincere religious people ac-
tually wish to be in bondage to the Mosaic Law, which can
only judge and condemn them for their sins. Peter called
the law: "a yoke...which neither our fathers nor we were
able to bear" (Acts 15:10). Paul called it "the handwriting of
decrees, that was against us, which was contrary to us" (Col.
2:14). He called it "the ministration of death" and "the min-
istration of condemnation" (II Cor. 3:7,9).

He challenged those who "desired" to be under the law:

"Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear
the law?" (Gal. 4:21).

"For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written. Cursed is every one that CONTINUETH not in ALL things which are written in the book of the law, to do them" (Gal. 3:10).

Thank God, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of
the law, being made a curse for us" (Gal. 3:13). Man always
responds better to grace than to law. The law was "added
because of transgressions" (Gal. 3:19). "By the law is the
knowledge of sin" (Rom. 3:20). But Christ died for our sins
and now true believers serve God from gratitude and love.
Hence Rom. 6:14 says: "Sin shall not have dominion over
you, for ye are not under the law but under grace." Since
Christ has redeemed us from the law (Gal. 4:5) God says to
every true believer:

"Stand fast, therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage" (Gal.5:1).

This was Posted By A4C on another thread, I really liked it.

HE PAID IT ALL

After living a "decent" life my time on earth came to an end.
The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house.
The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.

As I looked around I saw the "prosecutor," he was a villainous
looking gent who snarled as he stared at me, he definitely was the most evil personI have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat my lawyer, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed very familiar to me.

The corner door flew open and there appearedthe judge in full flowing robes.
He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room and I couldn't take my eyes off of Him.

As He took His seat behind the bench He said "Let us Begin."

The prosecutor rose and said "My name is Satan and I am here toshow you why this Person belongs in Hell."
He proceeded to tell of lies thatI told, things that I stole
and in the past when I cheated others.

Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke the further down in my seat I sank.
I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own lawyer, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at my representativewho sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all. I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life -- couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I've done.

Satan finished with a fury and said "This Person belongs in Hell, He is guilty of all that I have chargedand there is not a person who can prove otherwise.

Justice will finally be served this day."

When it was His turn, my lawyer first asked if might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.

As He got up and started walking I was able to see Him now in His full splendor and majesty.
Now I realized why He seemed so familiar, This was Jesus
representing me, my Lord and my Savior.

He stoppedat the bench and softly said to the Judge "Hi Dad" and then He turned to address the court.
"Satan was correct in saying that this Person had sinned,
I won't deny any of these allegations.
And yes the wages of sins is death and this Person deserves to be punished"

Jesus took a deep breath and turned to his Father without stretched arms and proclaimed "However, I died on the Cross
so that this person might have Eternal Life and She has
accepted me as Her Savior, so this Person is mine."
My Lord continued with "This Persons name is written in the book of life and no one can snatch it from ME.

Satan still does not understand yet, this Person is not to be given justice but rather Mercy."
As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and replied "There is nothing else that needs to be done,
I've done it all"

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down and the following words bellowed from His lips --


"This Person is free -- the penalty
for His sin has already been paid in full,Case Dismissed."

Our Lord said in John 8:32: "And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free." To this the religious
leaders replied: "We be Abraham's seed, and were never in
bondage to any man: how sayest Thou, Ye shall be made
free?" But our Lord answered: "Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin" (Ver.
34). Paul says the same thing in Rom. 6:16:

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"

Sad to say, many sincere religious people think that they
can free themselves from sin by putting themselves in
bondage to the Law, the Ten Commandments. This never
works, for the Law can only condemn the sinner. Rom.
3:19,20 declares that the Law was given "that every mouth
may be stopped and that all the world may be brought in
guilty before God.. .for by the law is the knowledge of sin."

Again we have to turn to Christ for salvation and true
liberty. He "died for our sins" (I Cor. 15:3) and has "re-
deemed us from the curse of the law" (Gal. 3:13).

Having believed this and trusted Christ as Savior, true
Christians serve the Lord, not from fear, or to gain favor,
but out of sheer love and gratitude. This is true liberty and
this service is the only kind that God desires from us. Prob-
ably no man ever served the Lord more sincerely or tire-
lessly than the Apostle Paul. In II Cor. 5:14 he gives us the
secret: "The love of Christ constraineth us ...."

"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight. . ." (Rom. 3:20).

It is strange that so many sincere people can so misun-
derstand God's written Word as to suppose that He gave the
Law "to help us to be good" or "as a rule of life."

The Law was not given to help us to be good, but rather
to show us that we are sinners and need a Savior. Rom.
3:22,23 says that "there is no difference, for all have sinned
and come short of the glory of God." How foolish, then, to
look to the Law for help. Though the Law provides for just
trial it does not help the criminal; it condemns him. Thus
the Bible teaches that the Law was given:

"That every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be
brought in guilty before God" (Rom. 3:19).

"For by the law is the knowledge of sin" (Rom. 3:20).

"The law entered that the offense might abound" (Rom. 5:20).

"That sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful"
(Rom. 7:13).

"It was added because of transgressions" (Gal. 3:19).
This leads us to Paul's great conclusion:

"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight" (Rom. 3:20).

This makes sense, for doing a few "good" things cannot
right the wrongs we have done. Good is what we should do,
hence we should not expect to be rewarded for it.

But, thank God, "Christ died for our sins" (I Cor. 15:3)
and "by Him all who believe are justified" (Acts 13:39).

"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law" (Rom. 3:28).

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31).

“The demons also BELIEVE, and tremble,” James2:19) but nowhere in the Bible are we told they believe on Jesus Christ as their Saviour. They DID believe on Him as their coming tormentor and destroyer. See Matt. 8:29; Heb 2:14; 1 John 3:8. And they also believed “there is one God.” But multiplied millions have so believed and died eternally lost! Believing “there is one God” will not save, but believing on Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour will! John 5:24; Acts 16:31.
