what god says about jesus
8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
  • 9That 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.
  • 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT JESUS
what god says about jesus1
11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
  • 12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
  • 13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT JESUS
what god says about jesus2
The Bible says that Jesus is fully God (John 1.1)
  • The Bible says that Jesus is fully human (John 1.14)
  • The Bible says that Jesus died for our sins and rose again from the dead (1 Cor. 15.3-4)
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT JESUS
salvation
Salvation: becoming born again (or being made righteous) by faith does not occur by:
    • Feeling guilty
    • Telling God everything you have ever done wrong
    • Going to church
    • Turning from evil ways
    • Any work or religious act
    • Making Jesus “Lord”
SALVATION
salvation1
To be saved:
    • You have to believe what God says about Jesus:
      • He is God
      • He is human
      • He died for our sins and rose again
  • Then, you must say it out loud. If you say what God says you will be saved. At the moment you say it you become a new creation (2 Cor. 5.21)
SALVATION
salvation2
Salvation is totally free.
  • Jesus paid the full price.
  • All you have to do is agree that He paid the full price and say you agree He paid the full price. The moment you do you pass from death to life, from sin to righteousness and from shame to glory.

6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
  • 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
  • 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
  • 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

This verse is written to believers, not unbelievers (1 John 2.1)
  • This is referring to God cleansing our soul – this can be seen by the fact our spirits are totally clean.
  • The love of God is totally unconditional, but you will not walk in that love, feel that love or enjoy that love if you continue to make dark choices.
  • To enjoy freedom from sin in your soul, you need to confess your sin.

    • Subjunctive – it is your choice to do it

If we say the same thing God says about our sins (do not excuse them, but focus on His redemptive work and the dominion we have over sin) then God is faithful and righteous to remove our sins from us, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness in our soul. (BCT)
