Who Jesus The Messiah Is and How He Changed My Life

Jesus ChristMy TestimonyThe Gospel

I grew up in a typical “Christian” environment. I thought I was a Christian, but I was a hypocrite! I said I loved God, but I hated my fellow man. As a child I was mistreated and it made me an angry person! My thoughts reeled with visions of revenge. I wanted to even the score! Oh, I put on a “nice face,” but it was only a thin veil for a hate-filled heart within. Yes, I read my Bible, I prayed, and I went to church, but it didn’t affect my life. I was a two-faced hypocrite!

Now regarding the things to come. Well, we’ve already discussed Heaven and Hell previously. Yet, what about the things regarding “the end”? Things respecting judgement and the resurrection? First off, these things are very near! For we read, “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’” (Revelation 22:20) Let’s take a look and see…

How Can I Be Saved?

The Gospel

PART 4

Here we are again! Let us now put this critical puzzle piece in place.

A REMEDY FOR THE DIAGNOSIS

Last time we saw that Jesus Christ was called, “the Lamb of God.” We also saw, that all the sacrifices in the Old Testament spoke of Him. Before that, we saw that all God’s rules, including the ten commandments, could only show us that we are sinful, just as a mirror does. We concluded that there was no hope in and of ourselves. We saw that we needed a deliver to save us! Then, we received the news that Jesus had arrived to, “take away our sin.” Yet, how would He do this? Well, just like the lambs had to die, so Jesus would die. Just like the person in the Old Testament would lay their hand on the head of the sacrificial animal s17094198893_e2834fefba_zhowing that all their sins were transferred to the animal, so all your sin and my sin was heaped on Jesus. Then, just as the animal had to die for the sins of that person as their substitute, so Jesus died to pay for all your sin that was heaped upon Him. For it is written, “And the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6b) Look! Jesus Christ took your place, your sin, and your death! In this way the wages for your sin was paid in full – past and future too! We know what the Scriptures say, “The wages of sin is death,” and “Without shedding of blood [death], is no forgiveness.” (Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:22) That is why Jesus died – there was no other remedy!

IT’S PERSONAL

Now, if Jesus paid the penalty for everyone’s sin, including yours, why isn’t everyone saved?

A Substitutionary Death

The Gospel

PART 3

A BRIEF RECAP

Just to briefly recap. In the first segment, we saw that God is holy and separate from sinners. For it is sin, that separates us from our holy Creator-God. 702902587_74321c3cc7_zThen, in the second segment, we saw that God’s rules show us that we are sinners. Just like a mirror reveals that we have dirty faces, so the ten commandments show us that we are stained with sin. We saw too, that “the tree of knowing the rules,” could not give life. Still further, we saw that the ten commandments could not give life either! In fact, they both brought about death – separation from our holy Creator-God. So we realize then, that a mirror cannot clean one, it only reveals our dirty faces – so God’s laws do the same. So, where do we turn for deliverance then? That is exactly what we want to look at today! Let’s check it out!

Who Is Able to Save Me? I Need Help!

The Gospel

First, we must ask ourselves, why are people attracted to religion in the first place? Why not just ignore it all and have a good time as best we know how? Yet, we find that nearly all of mankind has some kind of belief – even if it is evolution. These, having faith in the evolutionary process. Even this portion of civilization is searching for answers, looking for life some8612921803_109fc896f6_zwhere out there! They’re trying to find a reason for our existence! However, the greatest portion of Earth’s humanity, is seeking out some kind of god. Some kind of reason or purpose in it all. Something beyond the here and now. For we all know that we won’t be here forever! Just look around and see how rapidly we all are ageing! We are reminded too frequently of the harsh reality, regarding the brevity of life. It seems then, that most of us want some kind of hope beyond our existence down here. Something beyond this life of heartache and disappointments. We want some kind of “happy place” to go to after our life down here is over.

Hell is Taboo; A Mythical or Factual Place?

The Gospel

Why is that no one seems to mention Hell these days, other than as a swear word that is! Why is it such a taboo subject? Why i4739716257_2d6ca05280_zs it so offensive to so many? Quite frankly, if it truly exists, I want to know! If there is any chance whatever of me ending up in such a place, I want to know how to escape it! But then, maybe it’s not such a bad place after all. Perhaps it is, as some say, “A place to party!” Yet, as always, we must see what our Creator-God has to say in His Holy Word – the Bible.
