"FAITH ALONE IN CHRIST ALONE"

How wonderful to worship the One who loved us, even when we were lost in sin, and took our place on the cross of shame. It is God’s great desire through His grace “that all men be saved, and come into the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4). It is good to acknowledge that “there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the man, Christ Jesus” (1 Tim. 2:5). When we trust the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, God saves and justifies us and makes us “new creations” in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). Further, the Holy Spirit baptizes us into the one body, (the Church, which is Christ’s body), seals us unto the day of redemption (Eph. 1:13-14), and the Spirit of God comes to dwell in the child of God (1 Cor. 6:19).

AMEN BROTHER!!

Our treasures in JESUS are far beyond human words and imagination! If JESUS was all we had in this dark world, we would be and are rich.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Am I Going to Heaven ?
 
The following is reprinted with permission of The Timely Messenger

http://www.eleventhavenuechurch.com/1003/faithandhope.html





Faith and Hope


Faith and hope came into being through sin. Unfallen man knew nothing of faith, nor did he know of hope. Faith and hope were born after the Lord gave to fallen man the first promise, the first announcement of redemption (Genesis 3:15). Then Adam and Eve believed and hoped for that which the Lord had promised. And ever since, when man accepts what God has spoken, the exercise of faith and hope has followed. But those who do not accept God’s Word know no faith and have no hope. What dying Jacob said, “I have waited for thy salvation” (Gen. 49:18), has been the faith and hope of all Jewish believers in the Old Testament. They believed in a coming One, they hoped for life and glory.

Beautifully it was expressed by that Old Testament saint to whom the Holy Spirit had given the assuring revelation that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. When Simeon held the Child in his arms, his faith and hope were realized. He blessed God, not the Child, for he knew that Babe he held in his arms was the Blesser and needed no blessing from him; then he said, “Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy Word; for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation” (Luke 2:25-30).

And we also who have accepted the Word of God and believed on Him Who came, live now by faith and look forward in hope, for we are saved in hope and wait for the hope of righteousness, the blessed consummation glory, which will come when He comes again. Some day our faith will terminate in sight; we shall see Him as He is. In that day our hope will end for we shall possess all we hoped for. Unbelief knows no faith and has no hope. For all who do not believe, who refuse to accept God’s revelation, there comes the day when faith is impossible, and over the portals of the place of outer darkness is written “Leave hope behind.” What a delusion it is when men teach today that the sinner who lived on in sin, who refused God, who died without faith in Christ and without hope, will have another chance, or that there is such a thing as universal salvation. Now is the accepted time, and only now.

I am amazed at the number of times this thread has been read. Over 28,000 times.  It is read everyday by many visitors, who have that question. Everyone knows that they will die one day, what people really want to know is where they will spend eternity. God created us in His image, we have a spirit, and a soul and a body, the body dies, but the spirit will live on forever.

 Ge 1:26 ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Ge 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

God's intention was for man to live eternally, for God Himself is Eternal. Death was not intended for mankind, but because of Adam's sin death entered the world. God had warned Adam of this. God created us with the desire to live, not to die. Some may fear death because they don't know what awaits them. But God had a plan already to assure us of our salvation.

 Ge 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Adam made his choice to disobey God, and therefore sin entered the world and the wages of sin is death

 Ro 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ro 3:23 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,

So how can we know where we will spend eternity? God does not hide His Word from us. It is written in John 3:16

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life
[/u][/color]

Readers

Recieving this free gift from God will assure you of where you will spend eternity, all you have to do is follow these simple steps.

Confess to God that you are a sinner, that you repent of your sins, tell God that you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died for your sins, that He rose again, and that He is now seated at the right hand of God. Ask Jesus to come into your heart, and confess with your mouth that He is your Lord and Savior.

That easy!!! If you have done this thank God for His unspeakable gift, praise Him, and read His Word daily, pray to Him, He is now your Father, He loves you with an everlasting love and will never leave you.

Amen laterunner, I am looking forward to sitting at the great table with all my brothers and sisters.


Psa 23:5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psa 23:6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Praise Him for His wonderful mercies!

When I think of all that Jesus went thru to set us free from sin and death, I have to wonder, would I have gone thru all that for people who refuse to accept me?

No I wouldn't Brothers and Sisters that is the truth none of us would have gone thru what Jesus went thru for us. THAT IS LOVE.

Although no one has gone through what Jesus did completely I do know many that have suffered and given there lives for those that reject them, ridicule them, and say what they did was stupid and deny that it was for them. This is not to lessen what Jesus Christ did on the cross for no one else could have done all he did there but it is to say that there are many that have attempted to follow in His example for others. That is love also.

Joh 15:13  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
