There are many voices in the world and many and different messages. For man to be saved, it is necessary that we hear the message from God. This message will give us the understanding how God saves people since salvation is not in man’s ways. It is in this message where we shall put our faith and be saved. It is not just a message. The difference is the source is God. Our Lord Jesus Christ was with the Father from the beginning and what He has seen and heard he declared to us.
1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. Heb 1:1-2
31“He who comes from above is above all, he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32What He has seen and heard, of that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony. Jn 3:31-32
13"And he reported to us how he had seen the angel standing in his house, and saying, 'Send to Joppa and have Simon, who is also called Peter, brought here; 14and he will speak words to you by which you will be saved, you and all your household.'
Before the foundation of the world God had the plan of salvation for man. He made man in His image and likeness until the day that man sinned and rebelled against God. Can man work out his own salvation? Is he capable of redeeming his soul from hell?
Man Needs Salvation
9What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for
we have already charged that both Jews and
Greeks are all under sin;
10as it is written,"THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;11THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS,THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; 12ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE
BECOME USELESS;THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD,THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE." Rom 3:9-12
23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Rom 3: 23
12Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— Rom 5:12
32For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all. Rom 11:32
22But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. Gal 3:22
7No man can by any means redeem his
Or give to God a ransom for him-- 8For the redemption of his soul is costly,And he should cease trying forever-- 9That he should live on eternally, That he should not undergo decay.
15But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,For He will receive me. Selah.
25When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, "Then who can be saved?"26And looking at them Jesus said to them, "With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Mt 19:25-26
IS GOD’S WAY
The Suffering Servant
1Who has believed our message?And to whom has the arm of the LORD been
3He was despised and forsaken of men,A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;And like one from whom men hide their faceHe was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4Surely our griefs He Himself bore,And our sorrows He carried;Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But He was pierced through for our
transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell
upon Him,And by His scourging we are healed. 6All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the LORD has caused
the iniquity of us allTo fall on Him.
28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
44Now He said to them, "These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled."45Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, 46and He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, 47and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48"You are witnesses of these things.
6who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. 1Tim 2:6
6For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
2and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
14We have seen and testify that the Father has sent theSon to be the Savior of the world.
10By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
12but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD,
24and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
26Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
28so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
18Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
19namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
29The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Behold, theLamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power When He had made purification of sins; He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
26Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.Heb 9:26
28for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.Mt 26:28
7In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace
13But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Eph 1:7, 2:13
22And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
5and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood—
9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him
25He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.
1Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1Pet 1:3
WHAT SHOULD WE DO
TO BE SAVED AND
HAVE ETERNAL LIFE?
ADMIT WE HAVE SINNED AND REPENT
23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Rom 3: 23
3"I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
BELIEVE THE GOSPEL
saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel."
CONFESS AND RECEIVE JESUS
AS LORD AND SAVIOR
BELIEVE HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD
9that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;10for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
13for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."
Heavenly Father, I have sinned. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross, died for my sin and rose from the dead. Forgive me and wash me with the blood of Jesus. I am turning away from sin. I now invite Christ to my heart and my life and received Him as my Lord and Savior. I now receive the forgiveness and eternal life through Him. Thank You Father, In Jesus Name. Amen.
BE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo,
I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
ASSURANCE YOU NOW HAVE ETERNAL LIFE
“And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1Jn 5:11-13
