GOSPEL OUTLINE

Please pray before starting.

I would like to share some Good News with you and it starts with God

GOD IS THE CREATOR

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God Created the heavens and the earth.

God is the Creator He made everything there is, the Bible says in

Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were Created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been Created Through Him and for Him.

1) We think in are minds God revolves around us that’s not what the Bible says, the Bible says the heavens the earth and us were here to Glorify and please Him. As the Divine Creator He Has the right to do what He wants that is His prerogative.

The 1st point is as the Creator He Creates for His Pleasure and Purpose to do whatever He wants with His Creation. If you want to know what your purpose for life is it’s to Glorify Him to please Him so then everything belongs to the Lord.

Example: There was a young preacher going to a country church and in the sermon he preached how God Created everything. All things belong to Him and we are merely managers and stewards, there was a very wealthy farmer listening to the sermon that day thinking he would educate the young preacher. So he invited him home after the service for lunch and why his wife prepared the meal he gave him a tour of the farm, lands, equipment and barns. He said to the young preacher, young man do you really believe all this belongs to God look what I have accumulated. Don’t you agree this belongs to me and the young preacher said to him this statement, ask me in a hundred years from now.

The point was well made the farmer understood it, were just merely care takers and what we have doesn’t really belong to us It belongs to God. Because He is the Creator of everything therefore It belongs to Him, He Has the right of ownership.

The second point is since It belongs to Him He can do whatever He wants with It that’s the right of any inventor, creator or maker.

Example: There’s a beautiful bookcases i own and made out of solid cherry, lets suppose at the conclusion of making one of these bookcases. I decided i could do better i wasn’t pleased with it, so i’m going to destroy what was made and start over and my friend walks up as i get ready to douse it with kerosene. Then i lit the match my friend says wait a minute, you can’t do this to this bookcase its to beautiful give it to me.

Should i stop immediately and help you load my bookcase in the back of your pickup truck, no i don’t have to do that why! because it’s mine i made it. I have the prerogative as a maker to do whatever i want to do with it, you see God as the Creator Has the same Prerogative with whatever He Made. Because everything He Made is for Him that’s the beginning of the Good News because everything has a purpose and that purpose is what God gives It because He Made It.

GOD IS HOLY

2) He is are Creator that is Holy He made everything for Himself we belong to Him and He can do whatever He wants with us. He wants us to be Holy because He is Holy He demands it from all His Creation

1 Peter 1:15 but like the Holy One who called you, be Holy yourselves also in all your behavior;

The scripture goes on to say

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not so short that it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.

This says God is Holy and we are not Holy, there is a separation between us and God.

What do we mean when we say God is Holy?

He is Good and Pure! we think that about Holiness but the meaning is that God is all together different from you and me. He is the Creator were His Creation He’s going to be different not only from us but from His Angels He Made. He is so all together in a different Class or Category nothing is like Him in all the universe. You can’t just say God is like this and point to it or like him or her. Because it is not true but there is a part of us like God because we were Created in His Image there is a likeness some similitude. But that doesn’t mean God is like us He is a absolutely Perfect Being completely satisfied in Himself. He needs nothing you can see how He is Holy and different from anybody else He Has no needs He doesn’t need us or His Creation He doesn’t need the Angels to Praise Him. He is the Great God Who is totally happy with Himself and can do it without sin. What doe’s this have to do with you and me, this! He Has commanded you to be Holy also to be like Him He Will measure us by this standard Perfection. The standard is not the Ten Commandments or you going to Church or being Religious the standard is you to be just like God Holy. The Bible says:

1 Peter 1:16B “You shall be Holy, for I am Holy.”

That is the Commandment He Has given to all His Creation also remember He is the Creator He Has the Privilege to do that. He can make that Command of us and be Perfectly right of that demand.

Are you Holy like God?

You and I stand before Him that is the criteria He will Judge us. Not that we did good things or being moral, law abiding or obeyed the Ten Commandments. When you stand before God the one question will be this!

Were you like God?

That’s the only way you can get into heaven.

1 Peter 1:16 because it is written He is the Great God Who is “You shall be Holy, for I Am Holy.”

GOD IS JUST

3) The Good News is that God is are Creator and He is Holy.

The third point of are story is God is Just. The Bible says: Who keeps Loving Kindness for thousands, Who Forgives iniquity, transgression and sin;

Yes He does but we have to stop there and clarify. If you know anything about the Good News of Jesus Christ you know that is part of the story but that is towards the end of the story and if you get your facts out of sequence the conclusion can be different.

The Bible also says: yet He Will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.” Exodus 34:7

He can’t wink at your sin because He is Just or ignore it. He doe’s forgive but doesn’t clear the guilty or just excuse your sin because He is Just. When this verse occurred Moses was asking God to show him His Glory. He said show me more of this Divine Excellence this Holiness about You that is so different from anybody I’ve ever known show me more of it. If God doe’s He is declaring this about Himself that He doe’s forgive but He also doesn’t clear the guilty In other words He doesn’t excuse your sin. The book of Psalms says:

Psalm 96:13B For He is coming to Judge the earth. He will Judge the world in Righteousness And the peoples in His Faithfulness.

Why because He is Just, a lot of people misunderstand this about the God of the Bible. A Lot of people think the Old Testament God is just waiting to be wrathful and vengeful just waiting to get them . Then we come to the New Testament and God Has had some miraculous change He’s gotten kinder and gentler we see Jesus Loving and Merciful. That’s actually not true God doe’s not change the Bible say’s He is Unchangeable. That is part of His Holiness His separation Him being different all together, the New Testament says:

Romans 6:23A For the wages of sin is death,

You sin against Him you will have to pay it can’t be any other way God is absolutely Just let me illustrate this:

Example: Let’s say you leave your home and go on short trip and when you return someone has broken into your home. They have done unspeakable things to your wife and children, stolen your valuable possessions and killed your family. Within hours of the crime the alleged perpetrator is arrested and on the day of arraignment your thinking of the unspeakable things he has done. The judge reads the accusations against him and asks him how do you plead?. The man confesses and says i did it i’am guilty the judge then proceeds with the evidence presented. There’s eye witness testimony from neighbors that saw him running from your home at the hour it happened. Then there is the DNA evidence this guy is the man he is guilty he confessed. But the judge says this to him you know i’am a Christian and i want to be like my God Merciful ,Kind and Forgiving. So therefore i drop the charges against you, your free to go.

Tell me how would you feel? What do you think your reaction would be? I know what it would be every ounce of what is right every sense of justice in you would cry foul this is wrong this can’t be happening. Now not only is the alleged criminal who confessed to the crime guilty but the judge is guilty. Because he did not serve justice well he did not uphold the law. He therefore would be unholy because he is not just. Friend! God is Holy and therefore He is Just and He Has to punish sin including yours.

GOD IS MERCIFUL

4) He is Merciful and desires to forgive sin.

Psalm 103:8 The Lord is Compassionate and Gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in Loving Kindness.

God is Forgiving He forgave King David of murder and adultery.

Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord God. “Therefore, repent and live.”

God is Just but He wants to forgive you and is Perfect He doe’s both.God is pleading with you Saying I Am Just, Perfect and Holy bit I must administer Justice. In Gods Heart He wants to forgive you to live not to die, God likes being merciful not administering justice. Is there a conflict-ion in God is He mixed up and doesn’t know what to do half wrath and half kind. Are the two fighting each other depending on the day, He’s either wrathful or kind to you. Not at all He is Perfect in all ways there is no war in God . It is are dilemma hard for us to comprehend how God could be both Merciful and Just or Forgiving yet upholding Law and Order.

Example: There was a good friend lieutenant Greg he was a friend of General Stacey. It came down to General Stacey having to sign an order of execution. There was a struggle within him he cared for him this was a good friend for a long time. He has been a great lieutenant who followed orders till now. Inside of him he wanted to grant clemency but there was the side of him that had to be a General who carried out justice. For the cause of greater good he sided with justice and signed the execution order. But here’s a point of this story he was a mortal with flaws like you and me. But he had the ability to have two different fighting emotions and senses within him. But he still sided with the greater cause of good God doe’s not have a competition between these two attributes Mercy and Justice. God will Judge sin God will find it in the greater good of His Glory and His Universe Creation to dispense justice against you but at the same time He pleads and gives you Hope if you will turn. Why die He takes no pleasure in your death turn and live so you can receive His Mercy.

Proverbs 28:13 He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.

So the decision God’s Justice or Mercy comes to you my friend how will you choose?

MAN IS A SINNER

5) Man is a sinner and cannot save himself.

Romans 3:9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin;

The color of your Skin, Ethnicity or Religion makes no difference as far as sin goes we are all sinners and cannot save ourselves.

Romans 3:10 – 12 as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one; 11 There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God; 12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, There is not even one.”

We don’t do good as the scripture say’s because we aren’t good are very nature has a flaw, Where doe’s it come from you ask! The answer is: In the garden where God made Man and Woman are first parents! Adam and Eve. Something happened they rebelled they chose not to live according to there Creators Design. They chose for themselves the result was there nature changed. They were considered fallen and every one of there decedents has received there very fallen and sinful nature. Right up to this very day you and I have that very nature and it is natural to us. Are very nature is not to obey God and not to submit to the Creators Will. We do not want to live for His Purposes but are own we are selfish in nature. Are old nature through sin is to live now for ourselves.

Romans 2:8 but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation.

Sin is coming short of His Glory Which is Perfect in Nature.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God,

The Good or Religious deeds that we do are for ourselves it is flawed because it’s not for God’s Glory. Everything we do must be for His Glory.
So there’s a problem we need to change are nature. Another point is we are sinners and can’t save ourselves. We can’t change are nature we can change are behavior many times but we can’t change who we are.

Romans 3:20 because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His Sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

The more we try the more we break His laws. Sometimes we keep them but there for ourselves are own sake or glory.

Ephesians 2:12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the Covenants of Promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

We have to understand we are hopeless theirs nothing we can do to save ourselves. We can be the most Religious person even a Pastor or Bible Teacher. There has to be a moment when you understand your hopeless with no hope in this world. Somebody Who designed you Has to intervene to save you.

WHO CHRIST IS

6) He is the Infinite God-Man! He is are Hope! He is the answer for us. He is God Himself and He provided a answer for are sin. Jesus Christ are only Hope. People say Who is He! He was a great world Philosopher a Religious leader like mohammad. Some think He Was nothing more but this contradicts His own teachings. This would be true if He were only a man but He claimed to be Deity God Himself. If He was a mighty leader claiming to be God and He wasn’t . Then He would be a con-artist, liar nothing like a leader should be. The Bible say’s that He Was God.

John 1:1 In the beginning Was the Word, and the Word Was with God, and the Word Was God.

Who is the Word? It is Jesus Christ . This scripture talks about the beginning of creation. He Was there at creation. He Was there even before that.

John 1:2-3 He Was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being Through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

He pre-existed even before His Earthly birth in Bethlehem. He is the Second Person of the Triune God. He is the Son of God. God offered for us His only Begotten Son as a remedy to are sin problem. So if He is the Infinite God-Man! What are you going to do with that information. If He is your Creator and the Infinite God-Man. How do we identify with Him with what He Has done.

WHAT CHRIST DID

7) He Christ Jesus became are Substitutionary death Who solved are sin problem and brought us to a right relationship with God.

Romans 3:24 being justified as a gift by His Grace through the Redemption which is in Christ Jesus;

The Apostle Paul says it is a free gift .Then how do we get this free gift when He is a God of Justice? How can that be when we earlier said God will not ignore sin. In the scripture it says ( being justified ) What does it mean to be justified? It means God accepts you as perfectly clean your complete in His Presence. The scripture also says in the words ( In Christ Jesus ) In Christ both Mercy and Justice have been satisfied God will freely forgive you and accept you because of what Christ did. What did He do?

Romans 3:25 whom God displayed publicly as a Propitiation in His Blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His Righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;

The word propitiation what does it mean: God gave a Substitution Sacrifice on your behalf. In other words you should be punished for your sins. But instead God gave us His Son and put Him on a cross to die a shameful death and suffer what you and I deserve God’s Wrath. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem in a stable that was the beginning of are solution. No you have to go to Jerusalem to the hill an old rugged cross where God literally slays and Judges His Perfect Innocent Son for your sake. We see that Jesus was Sinless and Perfect in every way. When He Was put on the cross God placed every one of your sins every thought, attitude in rebellion against God. God placed them on His Son though Innocent and dispensed Holy Justice on Him. He treated Him as if He committed those sins and dealt with Him as a law breaker instead of us. So then God could declare us innocent that is what propitiation means.

Here is an example: Lets say you anger your husband and he’s been difficult. You try to figure some solution. You go to the store buy a gift to have them to forget about the anger so you propitiate it. Jesus was the Substitute Sacrifice where Gods anger has been completely put away and His Justice is satisfied.

Romans 3:25B This was to demonstrate His Righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; 26 for the demonstration, I say, of His Righteousness at the present time, so that He would be Just and the Justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

His Justice was satisfied.now He can be Perfectly Just and legal to be Merciful to you. His Mercy, Truth and Justice have come together in Jesus. He is the answer to Gods Mercy and Justice. What He asks you to do is put your faith ( Trust ) in Him.

WHAT IS FAITH

8) Simply put faith is treasuring and trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life.

Trusting in Jesus Christ is not trusting in someone else your pastor or church and most importantly certainly not yourself. Your confidence is completely in Jesus Christ for eternal life, eternal life is not just life after death it has to do with it but there is more. When the Bible speaks of eternal life it speaks of not just duration of time but the quality of life. Eternal life is the Life of Jesus as the Bible says, so what happens when you trust in Him His very Life is Infused into you. He Comes to Live within you and that has radical implications on how you live from now on once saved day to day. trusting in Christ is more than just intellectual ascent and human belief there’s a committal of something to the Person of Jesus Christ.

Example: For example if your trusting me your having to commit something to me otherwise you’ll just believe i’m trust worthy.

To Trust in Christ means you have committed something into His care and into His keeping. What is that! it’s you, it’s just not for the forgiveness of sins or life after death and heaven, it’s with your life now. The Bible says

Romans 1:17 For in it ( the Gospel ) the Righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; ( Beginning to end ) as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”

Meaning: That justification being right with God is being revealed from faith to faith.

I’m not just forgiven by faith i live by it, my life now is fueled by a trusting in Christ for something and again more than just life after death. I’m trusting Him with my life now, you see He made some promises to you and me. He said if we will trust Him with are entire being that He would take my life your life and turn everything to are good. He would conform us to the Image of His Own Person, He would do things with us that is just impossible for us to comprehend even now. That He could make are life count eternally forever to His Glory and to are good. So when a Man or a Woman trusts in Jesus there not just trusting for a place in heaven. There trusting that God will take something of there life and make something beautiful out of it. Are you trusting Christ with your life or have you just made a commitment to Him made a decision for Him. Your doing your best to keep the Commandments and do what you think God requires of you. Listen the Bible says

Romans 3:28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

It’s not what you do, it’s what He Has done and your committing your whole life now and forever even after death. One more thing it’s also a treasuring not just trusting in Jesus Christ. If I really believe He is Who He said He is and He can do what He promised and that He is the Supreme God the only True God. Then His value to me must have a inestimable price and i must treasure Him for Who He is if i really believe in Him. If i really trust in Him then i’ll see Him to Be as He Said He is and i’ll value that faith has to incorporate this sense of treasuring value. It raps it’s arms around Christ and says there’s nothing more valuable to me, no one is more precious to me. So i say if you are really trusting in Christ your loving Him, your cherishing Him He is the Supreme Person of your life. Faith will do this for you it will make you willing to loose your life for His sake because His Life is much more valuable than yours.

WHAT REPENTANCE IS

9) Lets discuss repentance which is deeply connected to the word faith which we just talked about.

Basically there like two sides of a coin no genuine faith without genuine repentance. But unfortunately today the word repentance is absent from are vocabulary more used in the past than today but it really is important. You can’t have genuine salvation without this repentance and so what does repentance mean let me begin by explaining what it isn’t. It isn’t just feeling sorry or guilty many people believe they have truly repented of there sin because they felt bad. They were in a church they heard the Gospel they responded and they asked Jesus to Come into there heart or raised there hand. They believe they have turned to Christ believed upon Him and repented of there sins. But the Bible warns us there are two kinds of sorrow that can motivate a profession of faith. One is a Godly sorrow the other is a worldly sorrow the Bible says in:

2 Corinthians 7:10 For the sorrow that is according to the Will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.

So God creates a lasting change but worldly sorrow alleviates the conscious and leaves you in your sin. So just feeling bad, feeling remorse or feeling guilt about sin, wrong actions, mistakes and failures is not necessarily genuine repentance. So what is it! well genuine repentance is the turning and hating of sin, turning from sin, hating your sin turning toward Christ. It involves three components of your personality, Mind, the Heart and the Will. Lets deal with the mind, genuine sorrow that produces Godly genuine repentance first affects the mind. The mind hears the truth and where as the mind had been blind to the truth did not agree with it. There’s now an acknowledgement an agreement with it not only doe’s the mind agree with it but it affects the heart and brings a change. Where you once loved your sin, relished it, protected it, defended it, genuine repentance no longer defends or protects or relishes it. But really now dislikes it wants to be free from it, there’s a disdain, there’s a dislike for sin and unless that’s really there in your life you may have felt sorry or guilty but you’ve not truly repented. Now when the intellect the mind and the heart come together in genuine repentance the third component has to follow and it’s your will. There’s a change in actions you no longer live the way you once lived, you no longer embrace that world view there’s been a 180 degree turn from your sin. Let me summarize what i believe is genuine repentance:

1) An acknowledgement and agreement that God Has not been first place in your life.

Listen to what the Bible says:

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is Faithful and Righteous to Forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Please stop and don’t jump to a conclusion, if we confess sounds like saying that God i’m sorry your right, i’m wrong i messed up. But the word confess there is not really dealing with just verbal exclamation, but rather with a inward agreement.

The word literally means: To say the same thing as God.

There’s an agreement with God where as before there wasn’t, you believed you were justified, you believe you were okay. But now you agree with God that He is right and you are wrong.

2) There is a reception you literally receive Jesus Christ as the (Lord) Director of your life the Controller.

The Bible says:

Romans 10:9 that 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;

Notice how Jesus is described the Lord, Jesus asked this Question:

Luke 6:46 “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?

In other words Jesus wants you to pay attention that if you are to be His followers you have to submit to His Authority.

Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.

What does it mean to deny yourself here is exactly what Jesus meant:

It means you deny yourself the right to trust in yourself, you now place all of your confidence on how to live your life in Christ Jesus. He does become the Director of your life, that is a genuine evidence that you repented. But there’s one more:

3) Be willing to obey whatever Jesus directs you to do.

If He’s truly the Director then there has to be obedience, listen To what the Apostle John who followed Jesus said:

John 15:10 If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My Love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His Love.

Where did this come from? well he was quoting directly from the Lord Master Jesus Christ. John new well that many people can confess to be believers followers of Christ. But if there life doe’s not change and the course of there life doe’s not redirect and follow Him in obedience. Then Godly sorrow really hasn’t taken place, John went on to say in His first Epistle.

Here’s the grand evidence:

1 John 2:3-5 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His Commandments.4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever keeps His Word, in him the Love of God Has truly been Perfected. By this we know that we are in Him:

So the question today is has genuine repentance occurred in your life or have you just made a decision. So you joined a church and now you go to church on Sunday morning if that or has the whole direction of your life truly changed. Is there something internally driving you to hate even when you still sin today, create a misery and a turning to Christ in repentance in change. Friend without that there is no genuine repentance, May God grant you by the Holy Spirit repentance.

GOD’S GRACE

10) Everything that has been shared up to this point is a explanation of the grace of God.

You see salvation is just that it’s a grace, grace means it’s a gift, you don’t earn it you didn’t deserve it in fact you couldn’t if you tried. All the Religious efforts of God’s greatest champions couldn’t have saved them they were given the same gift of grace. The Bible says:

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

God gifts you with salvation you don’t save yourself. The Bible says:

Ephesians 2:9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Going to church praying the prayers doesn’t save in fact we are living in a sad day when people believe there saved because they do those things. They stand up and ask Jesus to Come into there heart or something like that or they make a decision for Christ. Jesus completely showed us a more radical way He explained to a very religious man of His own day a preacher. That it was not his Religion that was going to save him He said to him.

John 3:3-7 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is Born Again he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is Born of Water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of
God.6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is Born of the Spirit is spirit.7 Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be Born Again.’

Jesus was equating this New Birth with physical birth and just like when you were born you didn’t help your Mother in that process. You caused her probably great difficulty there’s really nothing you and i do in the New Birth process. It’s an Act of God, Act of the Holy Spirit It’s a super natural thing can i say it this way It’s a miracle, God Has to Perform a miracle on you. Jesus again to that same preacher Nicodemus said It’s a mystery, It’s just like the wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it but you can not tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is Born of the Spirit the question is then how do i get God to do This for me. My friend you don’t have to worry about getting God to do This for you He wants to do It. Why did He send His Son to die for sinners?, Why would the Love that He Had in His Heart compel Him to rescue you people like you and me?. No the question is not doe’s God want to save me, the question is do you want to be saved? and if you do i believe God Will. Is there any thing for you to do?, well we already answered that faith and repentance.

WHAT MUST I DO

11) One day the Apostle Paul had been preaching in a city called Philippi and He and his partner Silas were arrested and put into prison. Do to a great miracle an earthquake occurred and freed them all from the prison and the jailer bowed before the feet of Paul asking him. What he must do to be saved? and so i’m sure you have the same question and we talked about it already. Just like the Philippian jailer Paul had told him to “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ”, faith, trust Him, treasure Him, repent turn from your sins let me give you an example of what that looks like.or could look like in your life. In

2 Corinthians 7:10 For the sorrow that is according to the Will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.

Acknowledge and agree God Has not been first place in your life. The Bible says:

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He Is Faithful and Righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Confession here doesn’t mean saying i’m sorry as we covered under the title repentance, no it means to acknowledge and agree with God what He Say’s about your sin. It’s to feel in your heart exactly the way God feels about your present situation. It’s to agree with Him that He Has the right to do whatever He wants to do. That He can save you whether He wants to save you or not you are completely at His Mercy.
The Bible then says to Receive Jesus Christ as the Director ( “Lord” ) of your life. He becomes the most important Person with the Authority to direct you life. The Bible says:

Romans 10:9 that 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;

This is what faith looks like, it’s just not about going through the ritual and saying Jesus Christ is Lord. It’s not just publicly standing before the church and saying i want to accept Jesus into my heart. No in the day which that was written if a man stood up publicly and said i want to be a follower of Jesus it was instant persecution and problems. He could loose his job, his income, his own family would often disown him and many people were arrested thrown in prison and payed the ultimate price with there life. No confession here in Romans 10 verse 9 means your willing to place yourself under the leadership of Christ. Your submitting to Him and pledging your allegiance to His Life to do the very third thing. Your willing to obey Him in whatever He instructs you to do that’s what a Christian is a person who has given his life to Christ because they trust Him to do with them what is best. Jesus one day said to those who profess that He was the Lord, He said.

Luke 6:46 “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I Say?

Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.

Discipleship is costly you can confess to be a Christian, you can say Jesus is Lord but if your not doing what He commanded you to do. Well then see you don’t have true saving faith, your not trusting Him your not committing your life to His Instruction and Commandments. But if you will do that, Jesus gave you a guarantee He Said this.

John 15:10 If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My Love; just as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and abide in His Love.

The Apostle John gave us the true test of whether or not a man has been Born Again He said:

1John 2:3-5 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His Commandments. 4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever keeps His Word, in him the Love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him.

Well my friend i hope that God Has given you insight into what He doe’s require of you. Simply put He requires you to follow Him in childlike faith, treasuring and trusting Him Alone for your life. God invites you to a change in your sin status from a position of alienation to a state of forgiveness. Therefore ” take heed how you hear “, one’s response to the Gospel in this life it is the biggest decision you will make because at your death there will be no opportunity to embrace the truth that was given in the Gospel.

John 7:37B “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.

Let’s Pray God will do that supernatural work and give you understanding and responsive hearts even now and that you will be Born Again and know the Love of Christ.

info – It’s a comforting that we can trust God, the Spirit of God to do the work through the Word of God in the lives of those with whom we share the Gospel.

Reach Our Generation 2014


Eric Ludy – The Heaven-Bred Warhorse from Ellerslie Mission Society on Vimeo.

What would it look like for the Church to fight on the offensive, instead of the defensive? We often have a passive stance in bringing the Gospel to the world but effective evangelism happens when we use wisdom and creativity. Just as the Salvation Army brought the Gospel to the East End of London with an unexpected (and very effective!) tactic, this message inspires us to ask God for how we can proactively approach our generation. We all have been placed in this generation by God and are being built for such a time as this. Look out world! Delivered by: Eric Ludy

Evangelism’s Motivation and Method


The Reason You Are to be a Witness

Most evangelism is done because we don’t want to see people die and go to hell. But if you evangelize with this primary motive, you are sharing your faith from a weak motive. You are doing evangelism for a far lesser reason than why Christ and the apostles evangelized. It is no wonder why so many of us are failing in sharing Christ with others.–> Click On Audio Below

Why I’m A Christian And No Longer A Muslim


I didn’t make this video for fun or because I have a lot of time on my hands. I want all to see the urgency of the things I’m saying in this video and seek for THE TRUTH (not YOUR truth or what you were raised believing).

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

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9.

Has The Bible Been Changed According To The Quran?



We almost always hear from Muslims that the Bible has been changed. In this video I am going to go into the Quran to see what it has to say about this topic. Does the Quran confirm the Bible? Does the Quran refer Muslims to go the Bible? Please watch it with an open heart and don’t have any bias but please analyze the facts.

Christ said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
(Matthew 7:7-8)

The Gospel – Sermon Edition


If you are familiar with the Ellerslie Short Film entitled, The Gospel, then you will be duly prepped for this message, which is the full-blown sermon edition (thunder and all). At Ellerslie we are not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God unto Salvation! Praise God for such a message of resounding victory, redemption, and grace.

The Essential Elements of the Gospel


Do you have the gospel that Jesus gave his life to establish? If life or death, heaven or hell is determined by the essential elements of the gospel, then it seems to be essential to know. In fact, it is an absolute necessity to know. In this session, the gospel that the Apostles presented at the expense of their lives was broken down and expounded by Pastor Michael Durham. There are some crucial elements being left out of most gospel presentations today–so crucial that without them a potential convert could be mislead.

ASKING THE TOUGH QUESTIONS, GOLD OR GOD


ASKING THE TOUGH QUESTIONS GOLD OR GOD

Ask yourself the tough question, what moves you in this life?, You choose.Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.Do you really trust him and are you willing to lay your life on the line and prove God faithful or are you to busy. There are lost are you saying God send me! or are you going to let someone else get the job description God designed for you. Maybe you say I’ll only follow God so far, anything beyond this point is extreme. Don’t you realized he purchased your body and you belong to Jesus Christ. You Don’t define the terms of how he uses you. Are you willing to go if he asks without the comforts of life for Jesus Christ your King. Are you willing do suffer and die for Christ if he calls you. Put your life for him be willing to let go. Jesus was described as a worm and no man you don’t need to be noticed. Go do his work.James 5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

和用嘴供認作得救”。第 9 節通知相信在你的心和 10 與心一說它像這樣認為。耶和華移動剛剛超越的智慧超越瞭解和接受的信仰和他將其移動到核心。為什麼心?,因為它是與心你作出的承諾。你自己犯下的人不理智只,你自己犯下用你的心。它是深入的承諾,比只是用心靈。我們談論我們正在談論源的心,我們生活就是生活處理一個人的重要核心承諾、 忠誠、 敬業、 激情的發言。我認為 word 信任什麼保羅和使徒在世紀與 word 信仰意味著到二十一世紀的更大的發言權。然而更好的詞彙,比甚至信託是承諾。這是圖維多利亞的特殊需要的女兒殘障,沿著綜合征其他問題所以她需要監督和不斷的照顧。只是不是任何人都可以做正確的現在她是與她的祖母和我們一起住。她知道什麼她需要和説明,並接受了培訓。我相信,現在有的人在這個房間裡老實說你可以很可能照顧維多利亞。我相信你 !。但我很信任你與維多利亞。我可以相信你與維多利亞的唯一途徑是要做什麼。你家裡關閉下拉維多利亞轉身走開。這就是 word 信仰在聖經中意味著什麼。你只是不知道耶穌是救主和你只是不要除非他是救主的事實。您提交你自己對他不只是您永恆、 不只是天堂或地獄,不只是你的罪惡,您提交你一生和你走你在他休息。這就是所需的信念 !這是保存的信念 !單單這信念。這就是信仰上帝給和那是他回應,現在你知道耶穌存在的信念和基督來到這世界,處女所生。你非常正統中你的信仰,你知道耶穌是永恆的生命的唯一途徑,你有沒有懷疑,你有沒有懷疑聖經 》。如果您那裡停止我親愛的朋友,你的知識,您接受,相信這些事實的所有的所有的所有不會拯救你。他們將證明是煙無論你如何努力嘗試,他們他們會蒸發,離開你在地獄中抓住的一根繩子。你與你信任耶穌嗎?,你必須委託自己向上帝什麼少是褻瀆他對我們的承諾他給了他所有,他為我們死,他要你活的他,通過他和他和沒有什麼較少。加拉太書 2:20″我已經與基督被釘十字架,我不再活著,但基督住在我。我住在正文中的生命,我住在上帝的兒子,愛我,為我舍了自己的信仰”。保羅甚至沒有試圖去靠他自己的信念,他說: 我需要信仰基督的我信任他那麼多的作者和精軋機的我的信仰。這是一個真實的轉換和虛假的轉換之間的區別。已更改的最終目標,是它。在轉換之前你自己,你的生活甚至您使用自己的宗教。多少的你坐上星期日的服務,為光能,但你不要周日晚上或收集你不想自己,稅務的禱告一下自己的很多。我不教會出勤保存不,不,不說你誤會我。我告訴你這種信念,節省了工程,因此,區別是在生活。你不再為自己而活你為基督榮耀的活。這就是終極目標他幸福它歸結到無私愛詩的自私。虛假的轉換可以出現非常宗教,但他的心是仍然自私。True 轉換永遠會考慮對基督的服從,負擔或侵權它永遠不會是一種快樂。它是生命的你到基督總完成移交。這是什麼儲蓄的信仰是,它是即將結束自己的和完全和向基督完全信任你所有的生活。你聰明的人,或你是愚蠢?,你想要他的饒恕?,這是救主人為世界的罪而死,這是你永恆的靈魂,這是你將永遠的唯一的生活。約翰 14:6 耶穌說:”我是道路和真理和生命。沒有人能到父那裡通過我。此外馬太福音 7:24″所以每一個人聽到我這話並將它們放入實踐就像一個明智的人,他的房子建在岩石。25雨淋、 水沖,和風刮和拍打那所房子裡 ;然而它不屬於,因為它有其基金會在岩石上。26但聽到我這話並不將它們付諸實踐的人就像一個愚蠢的人把房子蓋在沙。27雨淋、 水沖,和風刮了並拍打那座房子,及它下跌的大崩潰。

El Evangelio. La más aterradora verdad de las Escrituras… (DUBLADO)


POR FAVOR LEE EL EVANGELIO COMPLETO Y MIRA EL VÍDEO…

Este es el verdadero Evangelio, has tenido el conocimiento adecuado y sabido que eres salvo o estás creyendo en un evangelio diferente. ¿Has clamado a Dios con todo lo que tienes? ¿Qué actitud tienes cuando clamas por ayuda? Salmo 141:8 Pero mis ojos están sobre ti, oh Dios, El Señor; En ti tomo refugio; No dejes a mi alma desamparada.

142:1″ Clamo al Señor con mi voz; Con mi voz al Señor hago mi súplica. “Un grito de ayuda debe ser dirigido a Dios y a nadie más. Qué significa creer pero para CONFIAR Nunca puedes ganar el derecho de que Dios te salve. No trates de ganar lo que sólo Dios puede hacer.

Efesios 2:8 “Porque por gracia sois salvos, a través de la fe, y esto no es de vosotros, es don de Dios, 9, no por las obras, para que nadie se vanaglorie”. No es tan sólo acerca de una decisión de Cristo o de ser persuadido por tu propio interés en tener mejores ingresos, salud o cualquier interés propio o simplemente para sacarte del infierno para escapar por miedo.

El egoísmo es un pecado del que no se puede salvar cuando se va a Dios de manera egoísta. El Evangelio es acerca de ser transformado de una persona egoísta a una persona sin apegos emocionales centrada en Dios y en los demás. El ser convertido es ser cambiado.  Mateo 18:3 “Ciertamente, os digo, a menos que os convirtáis y actuéis como niños, no entraréis de ninguna manera al Reino de los cielos”.

Significa que se ha convertido en algo que no era antes, se trata de un cambio interior sobrenatural. Corintios 5:17 “De modo que si alguno está en Cristo, es una nueva criatura; las cosas viejas murieron; he aquí, todas son hechas nuevas”. El nacimiento de un pecador proviene de la oscuridad hacia la luz, no todo cambiará físicamente pero espiritualmente sí va a cambiar. Un cambio de egoísmo total a un estado de amor altruista.

Antes de convertirse, toda su vida gira entorno a si mismo: “Qué hará esto en relación a mis decisiones, mi auto-gratificación, mi gloria, mi satisfacción, mis deseos de una vida antes del cambiar”.

Mateo 22:37 “Jesús le dijo: ‘ Amarás al Señor tu Dios con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma y con toda tu mente’. 38 Este es el primer y gran mandamiento.

39 Y el segundo es similar: “Amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo.” El mayor acto de adoración es amar a Dios, la conversión es la posibilidad de hacerlo. Estoy viviendo ahora para la gloria de Dios, no mi propio egoísmo. Puedes servir a Dios y ser religioso, pero no será gozoso hasta que te hayas convertido.

Muchas personas no son salvas en la iglesia, porque es para su propio beneficio que sirven a Dios. El evangelio no es un evento de sólo una decisión. Como hacer una oración que te dicen que repitas, o decir “Jesús entra en mi corazón.” El pecado es más que un problema intelectual, una decisión no lo resolverá, una persona no es capaz y le falta el deseo de ser transformada.

Jeremías 13:23 “¿Puede el etíope cambiar su piel o el leopardo sus manchas? De manera que ustedes también pueden hacer el bien a pesar de estar  acostumbrados a hacer el mal”. Romanos 1:18 “Pues la ira de Dios se revela desde el cielo contra toda impiedad e injusticia de los hombres, que detienen la verdad en injusticia, 19 Porque lo que puede ser conocido de Dios se manifiesta en ellos, porque Dios se los ha demostrado a ellos.

20 Porque desde la creación del mundo las cualidades invisibles de Dios, es decir, su eterno poder y su naturaleza divina, se perciben claramente a través de lo que él creó, de modo que nadie tiene excusa., 21 A pesar de haber conocido a Dios, no lo glorificaron como a Dios ni le dieron gracias, sino que se extraviaron en sus inútiles razonamientos, y se les oscureció su insensato corazón. 22 Aunque afirmaban ser sabios, se volvieron necios. 23 Y cambiaron la gloria del Dios inmortal por imágenes que eran réplicas del hombre mortal, de las aves, de los cuadrúpedos y de los reptiles.

24 Por lo tanto Dios también los abandonó a la inmundicia, en la lujuria de sus corazones, para deshonrar sus cuerpos entre ellos, 25 Que cambiaron la verdad de Dios por la mentira y adoraron y sirvieron a la criatura antes que al Creador, quien es bendito eternamente. Amén. 26 Por esta razón Dios los entregó a pasiones viles. Incluso sus mujeres intercambiaron el uso natural por aquello que es contrario a la naturaleza.

27 Asimismo también los hombres, dejando el uso natural de la mujer, quemaron en su lujuria por los otros, hombres con hombres cometiendo lo que es vergonzoso y recibiendo en sí mismos la pena de su error que había vencido. 28 Y aún como no quisieron retener a Dios en su conocimiento, Dios los entregó a una mente degradada, para hacer cosas que no rigen; 29 Estar llenos de toda injusticia, fornicación, maldad, codicia, malicias; llenos de envidia, asesinato, guerras, engaño, mentes maliciosas;  30 Difamadores, aborrecedores de Dios, violentos, soberbios, vanagloriosos, inventores de cosas malas, desobedientes a los padres, 31 discernimiento, poco fiables, sin amor, implacables, sin misericordia; 32 que, sabiendo el justo juicio de Dios, que los que practican tales cosas son merecedores de muerte, no sólo de hacer lo mismo pero también aprobar a aquellos que lo practican.

una persona odia y no AMA a Dios. Si pecaste al menos una vez, eres enemigo de Dios. Nadie busca a Dios ni tienen tienen la capacidad o el deseo de hacerlo. Juan 5:39 “Escudriña las escrituras, ya que en ellas piensas que tienes vida eterna; y estas dan testimonio de Mi.

40 pero no estás dispuesto a venir a mí (Jesús) de manera que puedas tener vida”. Cuando te des cuenta de esto encontrarás misericordia y gracia en Jesús Cristo. No es intelectual es un problema de corazón. 2) somos cautivos de Satanás que es sobrenatural, Satanás nos ha engañado  2 Corintia 4:3 Pero si nuestro evangelio está aún encubierto, entre los que se pierden está encubierto; 4 en los cuales el dios de este siglo cegó el entendimiento de los incrédulos, para que no les resplandezca la luz del evangelio de la gloria de Cristo, el cual es la imagen de Dios.

La gente simplemente no entiende el Evangelio debido al ataque de Satanás. Se requiere el poder de Dios para entender. 1 Corintios 2:14 “Pero el hombre natural no percibe las cosas del Espíritu de Dios, puesto que para él son necedad; ni puede él entenderlas, porque se han de discernir espiritualmente”. Esto es debido a que estamos espiritualmente muertos a causa de nuestros pecados.  No podemos oír a Dios incluso si quisiéramos. Necesitamos el Espíritu de Dios. Debemos volver a nacer.

Juan 3:3 “Respondió Jesús y le dijo: De cierto, de cierto te digo, que el que no naciere de nuevo, no puede ver el reino de Dios.. «4 Nicodemo le dijo: ¿Cómo puede un hombre nacer siendo viejo? ¿Puede acaso entrar por segunda vez en el vientre de su madre, y nacer? 5 Respondió Jesús: De cierto, de cierto te digo, que el que no naciere de agua y del Espíritu, no puede entrar en el reino de Dios.

6 lo que es nacido  de la carne, carne es , y lo que es nacido del espíritu,  espíritu es. Significa que no tenemos nada que ver con haber nacido del espíritu. No es ser religioso que ahorra o ser bueno. Usted está en la  necesidad de perdón y no se puede obtener por su cuenta .

El pecado debe ser castigado y sólo Jesús puede salvarte del pecado. 2 Corintios 5; 21 Al que no conoció pecado, por nosotros lo hizo pecado, para que nosotros fuésemos hechos justicia de Dios en él. El poder que te salva tiene que ser mayor que tú y Satanás, esto es el poder de Dios. El bautismo no incluso el salvarte, no oigas la verdad y recházala.

Nada puedo decirte hoy excepto: clama a un Salvador que dijo “si me llamas  te contestaré”. Cuando Pedro se hundía él estaba caminando sobre el agua,  gritó “Señor sálvame”.  Dios nos encuentra donde estamos, cada uno es diferente, algunos se salvan lentamente algunos rápido, es la forma de Dios de hacer lo que quiere.

Dios salva y las personas te dirá que han sido salvas de muchas maneras. haciendo una simple oración y de otras maneras. pero debes tener el conocimiento de la salvación para ser salvo, y esto es de lo que ser trata. Las personas que piensan ser salvas por recitar una oración en un par de minutos, es la cosa mas tonta y condenatoria que puedes escuchar, pensar que Dios te limpia en un segundo de todos tus ídolos y pecado.

Todavía necesitas de un salvador para toda tu vida, todavía necesitas una persona para purificarte, él ha prometido purificarte. ¿Has vuelto a nacer? ¿Ha habido un momento en el que llegó esa nueva vida? Y desde que nació esa nueva vida, ¿Hay una nueva vida siendo vivida? Está siendo vivida en la búsqueda de Dios y lo Sagrado y la Santificación. Esa es la promesa que hace a todos los que salva.

Me dices que eres salvo hoy, bien: déjame verlo en tu vida, cuán limpio estás, cuán entusiasta estás por las buenas obras, cuán ambicioso estás por ser Santo y ser libre de todos tus ídolos. Cómo te salva, Él cambia el corazón. Ezequiel 36:25
Entonces rociaré agua limpia sobre ti, y serás limpio; te limpiaré de todas tus inmundicias y de todos tus ídolos.

Ezequiel 36:26 Os daré corazón nuevo, y pondré espíritu nuevo dentro de vosotros; y quitaré de vuestra carne el corazón de piedra, y os daré un corazón de carne. Dios tomará el corazón de piedra y le pondrá un corazón nuevo como la arcilla que lo puede formar para seguirlo y él pondrá su espíritu en tí. Ezequiel 36:27 Y pondré dentro de vosotros mi Espíritu, y haré que andéis en mis estatutos, y guardéis mis preceptos, y los pongáis por obra.

Habrá muchos días que serán difíciles.  Lucharás contra la incredulidad y él te ayudará, incluso si tiene que obligarte. Tu voluntad deberá ser cumplir con su voluntad, no ser un agente libre y hacer tu propia voluntad. No puedes ser salvado y persistir en tus viejos hábitos. Dios te va a cambiar.

Hechos 16:14 “Entonces una mujer llamada Lidia nos escuchó. Ella era una vendedora de púrpura de la ciudad de Tiatira, que adoraba a Dios. El Señor le abrió su corazón para prestar atención a las cosas que  Pablo decia”. Necesita  que  Dios abra su corazón para seguir, el nuevo corazón que quiere Dios.

La fe y el arrepentimiento son un obsequio de Dios. ¿Qué debo hacer para ser salvado? Es esto: arrepiéntete y cree que no puedes arrepentirte porque no quieres a Dios. Él incluso tiene que conceder el arrepentimiento, tú no puedes hacerlo por tu cuenta. 2 Timoteo 2:25 “Que con humildad corrija a aquellos que se oponen, por si acaso Dios les conceda arrepentimiento, para que puedan conocer la verdad…” La fe también te es dada. Efesios 2:8- “Por gracia han sido salvados por la fe y no por cuenta propia; es el regalo de Dios, 9 no por obras, para que nadie se vanaglorie.”

Gracia, fe… la salvación es un regalo que vendrá con los cristianos que se arrepienten: usted se arrepentirá cuando pecamos, el condenado de Dios. Quiere hacer lo correcto con él. Muchas personas piensan que el arrepentimiento es decir que lo sientes o lamentarte y no es ninguna de éstas. La pena, en realidad, lleva al arrepentimiento, la pena no es arrepentimiento. 2 Corintios 7:9 “Ahora me regocijo, no de que sientan pena, sino de que su pena lleve al arrepentimiento”.

Cuando lo hicieron lo sentimos de una manera piadosa, que podría sufrir pérdidas de nuestra parte. 10 porque la tristeza es que según Dios produce arrepentimiento para a la salvación, no hay que arrepentirse; pero la tristeza del mundo produce muerte. es necesario tener la convicción de que el  pecado  viene de Dios. ¿Qué es arrepentimiento entonces? Es un cambio de la mente, las emociones y del pecado que viene de  Cristo.

1) Se trata de  un cambio de su mente, que  comienza a entender la seriedad del pecado, de Dios y su justicia y su ajusticiamiento usted  no piensa igual sobre los dos. Usted sabe que subir  con excusas por su pecado debe ocuparse antes de Dios. No se puede justificar en su mente como si nada está mal, que ha cambiado la forma de pensar  sobre el pecado.

2) Te sientes de diferente manera acerca del pecado y acerca de Cristo, bueno, odiabas a Cristo y no tenías nada para Él, ahora algo te mueve por dentro, sientes el inicio de un afecto por Dios y un odio por el pecado, ahora odias lo que amabas y amas lo que odiabas. Un hombre quien todavía ama a su pecado es un hombre que aún debe ser transformado.

3) eliges de manera diferente en cuanto a tu pecado, ya no sigues más a el pecado, sino a Cristo, eliges en tu mente de manera diferente y actúas diferente acerca de la manera en la que vives tu vida. La manera en la que sabes que alguien es salvo, es cuando ellos pecan después de profesar su fe, es ahí donde te das cuenta si han sido transformados o no, porque un verdadero cristiano piensa diferente acerca del pecado, siente diferente acerca del pecado, escoge diferente acerca del pecado y cuando el cristiano peca, lo siente como pena, desgracia, a él le disgusta.

estaban hablando no sólo consciente, esto es mucho más profundo estaban hablando de el {corazón}. Hay miseria hay es dolor y quiere estar limpio y cambiar la forma de hacer las cosas , eso es lo que el arrepentimiento es. Cuál es la verdadera fe, la mayoría piensan que la  fe es estar de acuerdo con lo que  la Biblia  dice acerca del pecado, Jesucristo y la salvación que no es bíblico.

Creo que una de las cosas más condenatorias que les hemos hecho a los pecadores es decirles que crean, pero no les decimos lo que significa creer. Charles Spurgeon dijo que el trabajo número 1 de un predicador es explicar lo que significa la fe. La palabra convicción es muy común en nuestro mundo, aún así las personas no saben lo que significa bíblicamente. Entienden lo que significa en nuestra cultura, ya que lo usamos unos con otros.

Pero no entienden lo que la Biblia quiere decir con ello. Los componentes de la fe están en el capítulo 10 de Romanos. El componente número 1 es el conocimiento, Romanos 10:14 “¿Cómo, pues, invocarán a aquel en el cual no han creído (escuchado)?” El punto es que primero debes escuchar la verdad o una declaración de proposición, antes de aceptarla o no , debes conocer todos los hechos, antes de juzgarla como falsa o verdadera.

La segunda piedra fundamental de la fe es la aceptación, debes aceptar que el conocimiento que tienes es la verdad, para ser creída como nuestra cultura. Para muchos cristianos esto es la fe, y dejan de lado lo que la Biblia dice, que soy un pecador y que Jesús murió. Pero aceptar la verdad sobre tu pecado y sobre Jesucristo todavía no es suficiente fe para justificarte.

La fe no es más que escuchar y aprender acerca de Jesús y aceptar  esa realidad y así la conversión de hoy,  la salvación para nosotros principalmente es poder decir que sí, sí, sí en los lugares correctos. Si usted  puede decir sí, sí, sí a los hechos correctos decimos usted esta salvado por tener fe, no, pero no es posible que no la tengan. Cree usted  que George Washington estaba vivo, excepto el hecho de que salvo  ese pedazo de conocimiento, pero George Washington no puede salir del infierno al cielo por él.

No lo conoces, no lo has conocido, pero creer en él con un orgullo como padre de nuestro país, cuál es la diferencia entre la comprensión mental de George Washington y la fe en Jesucristo , pero para muchas personas no hay diferencia. Tienen tanta fe en Cristo como lo hacen en George Washington los dos saben y excepto de los hechos de la realidad allá.

Si tienes fe salvadora tiene que tener un componente más. El último componente es  confianza: puede tener fe en alguien pero eso no significa confiar en ellos. El apóstol Paul nos dice Romanos 10:9 “que si confiesas con tu boca al Señor Jesús  y creyeres en tu corazón que Dios se levantó de los muertos, serás salvado.

10 Porque con el corazón se cree en la justicia, y con la boca se hace la confesión para la salvación. Aviso versículo 9, creer en tu corazón y en el 10 con el corazón uno cree diciendo como esta. El Señor mueve la fe más allá de la inteligencia más allá del conocimiento y la aceptación  y mueve al corazón. ¿Por qué el corazón?, porque es con el corazón que se hace un compromiso.

Te comprometes con una persona, no intelectualmente solamente, te comprometes con tu corazón. Es un compromiso más profundo que sólo con la mente. Hablamos del corazón, estamos hablando de la fuente que vivimos, están nuestras vidas lidiando con el centro vital de una persona hablando de compromiso, lealtad, amor, pasiones. Creo que la palabra confianza, dice mejor, en el siglo XXI, lo que Paul y los Apóstoles quisieron decir con la palabra fe en el siglo I.

Sin embargo, una palabra mejor que incluso la confianza es compromiso. Esta es una ilustración, la hija de Victoria tiene necesidades especiales, síndrome de down, otras cuestiones por lo que ella necesita supervisión y atención constante. Pero no cualquiera puede hacer eso, ahora ella está con su abuela que vive con nosotros. Ella sabe lo que necesita y ha ayudado y se ha entrenado.

Ahora hay personas en esta habitación sinceramente creo, que usted probablemente puede cuidar de Victoria. ¡Creo en ti!. Te confío a a Victoria. La única manera que puedo confiarte a Victoria es hacer que deje a Victoria en tu casa, me de la vuelta y me aleje. Eso es lo que la palabra fe significa en la Biblia. Simplemente no conoces que Jesús sea el Salvador y simplemente no aceptas el hecho que Él es es Salvador. Te comprometes con Él, no solamente tu eternidad, no solamente cielo o infierno, no solamente tus pecados, comprometes tu vida y te alejas de ti mismo, descansando en Él.

¡Esa es la fe necesaria! ¡y esa es la fe que salva! esa fe por si misma. Es la fe que Dios da y que es la fe a la que Él responde, ahora sé que tú sabes que Jesús existe y que Cristo vino al mundo nacido de una virgen. Eres muy ortodoxo en tus creencias, sabes que Jesús es el único camino a la vida eterna, no tienes dudas acerca de eso, no tienes dudas acerca de la Biblia.

Si se deja allí mi querido amigo todo su conocimiento, la totalidad de su aceptación, creer en estos hechos no te salvará. Ellos te demostrarán  ser una cuerda de humo, cuanto trate de agarrarlo se evaporará y te dejará en el infierno. ¿Esta confiando Jesús en usted?, usted debe confiar a Dios cualquier cosa, menos que eso es una blasfemia a su compromiso, que nos dio todo, murió por nosotros, él quiere que vivas por él, a través de él y para él y nada menos.

Gálatas 2:20 “yo he sido crucificado con Cristo y ya no vivo, pero Cristo vive dentro de mí. La vida que vivo en el cuerpo, vivo por la fe en el hijo de Dios, que me amó y se entregó por mí”. Paul ni siquiera intentó vivir por su propia fe, dijo “necesito la fe de Cristo, confío en el como el autor y consumador de mi fe”.

La diferencia entre la verdadera conversión  y una falsa conversión es esto. Los objetivos se han cambiado, eso es todo. Antes de la conversión vivías para ti. Cuántos de ustedes se sientan en las bancas para el servicio del domingo, pero no lo hace el domingo por la noche o en la oración de reunión, no quieren pagar su parte.

No estoy diciendo que asistir a una iglesia salva, no no, no, me estás malentendiendo. Te estoy diciendo que esta fe que salva funciona, hace una diferencia en la vida de uno. Ya no vives para ti mismo, vives para la gloria de Cristo. Ese es el máximo objetivo, esta felicidad, se trata de amor desinteresado contra el egoísmo.

Un falso converso  puede parecer muy religioso, pero su corazón está siendo egoísta. El  verdadero converso nunca considerará la obediencia a Cristo una carga o una violación. Esta es la total entrega completa de su vida a Cristo. Eso es lo que la fe salvadora es, está llegando al final de ti mismo y completa totalmente la verdad de tu vida a Cristo.

La gente es sabia o necia?, ¿quieres su perdón?, este es el Salvador que murió por los pecados del mundo, esta es tu alma eterna es la única vida que vivirás. John 14:6 Jesús le contestó: “yo soy el camino y la verdad y la vida. Nadie viene al Padre excepto yo. también Mateo 7:24 “por lo tanto todos que escuchan estas palabras mías y las pone en práctica es como un hombre sabio que construyó su casa sobre la roca.

25 La lluvia cayó, crecieron los ríos, y soplaron los vientos y golpearon contra aquella casa; pero no cayó, porque tenía sus cimientos en la roca. 26 Pero cualquiera que escucha estas palabras mías y no las pone en práctica es como un hombre insensato que edificó su casa sobre arena. 27 Cayeron las lluvias, crecieron los ríos y soplaron los vientos y golpearon contra aquella casa y se cayó con un gran estruendo.

L’Évangile. La plus effrayante de la vérité des écritures…


L’évangile – La plus effrayante de la vérité des écritures… (French)

 

VEUILLEZ LIRE DE LA VIDÉO COMPLÈTE DE GOSPEL ET DE REGARDER…

 C’est le vrai évangile que vous avez eu le droit de savoir et savoir que vous êtes sauvés ou êtes vous croire un autre Évangile. Avez vous crié à Dieu avec tout ce que vous avez?. Quelle attitude vous avez quand tu pleures de l’aide ? Psaume 141:8, mais mes yeux sont sur toi, Ô Dieu, le Seigneur ; En toi je prends refuge ; Ne laissez pas mon âme indigente. Psaume 142:1″ que je crie vers le Seigneur avec ma voix ; Avec ma voix au Seigneur je fais ma supplication {plaidant}.” Un appel au secours a besoin d’être orientés vers Dieu et personne d’autre. Ce qui signifie croire mais (de confiance), vous pouvez jamais gagner le droit de Dieu pour vous sauver. Ne pas essayer de gagner ce que Dieu seul peut faire. Ephésiens 2:8 “ Parce que c’est par grâce que vous avez été sauvés par la foi — et ce n’est pas de vous, c’est le don de Dieu — 9 pas par les œuvres, afin que nul peut se vanter ». Il n’est pas à peu près une décision pour Christ ou à convaincre en raison de votre intérêt auto – meilleur revenu, santé ou autre intérêt auto – ou juste vous sortir de l’enfer pour y échapper par crainte. L’égoïsme est péché que vous ne pouvez pas être enregistrées va à Dieu dans l’égoïsme. L’Évangile est en cours de transformation d’une personne consciente libre humaniste égoïste en Dieu désintéressé centré et une autre personne consciente. Conversion doit être (modifiée) Matthieu 18:3 « Assurément, je vous le dis, à moins que vous sont convertis et deviennent comme de petits enfants, vous en aucune façon entrera au Royaume des cieux ». Signifie que vous êtes devenu quelque chose que vous n’étiez pas avant il s’agit d’un changement vers l’intérieur surnaturel. Corinthiens 05:17 “c’est pourquoi, si quelqu’un est en Christ, il est une création nouvelle ; vieilles choses ont disparu ; Voici, toutes choses sont devenues nouvelles. » Naissance d’un pécheur est des ténèbres à la lumière, ne pas tout change physiquement, mais spirituellement changera. Un changement de l’égoïsme total à un état d’amour désintéressé. Avant que vous êtes convertis votre vie entière est pour soi. ce que cela fera pour moi dans mes décisions, ma satisfaction de soi, ma gloire, ma satisfaction, mes désirs, que c’est la vie avant d’être changé. Matthieu 22:37 « Jésus lui dit: « “Tu aimeras le Seigneur ton Dieu de tout ton cœur, de toute ton âme et de toute ta pensée. 38 C’est le premier et grand commandement. 39 Et le deuxième est semblable: « Tu aimeras ton prochain comme toi-même. “plus grand acte d’adoration est d’aimer Dieu, la conversion est la capacité de le faire. Je vis maintenant pour la gloire de Dieu pas mon propre égoïsme. Vous pouvez servir Dieu et religieux, mais il ne sera pas une joie jusqu’à ce que vous êtes convertis. Beaucoup de gens ne sont pas enregistrées dans l’église, parce que c’est pour leur propre bénéfice qu’ils servent Dieu. L’Évangile n’est pas un seul événement de décision. Comme prier une prière qu’ils vous disent de répéter, ou dire come Jésus dans mon cœur. 1) le péché est plus qu’une décision problème intellectuel ne le résoudra pas, une personne ne peut pas et n’a pas le désir d’être converti. Jérémie 13:23 “peut l’éthiopien changer sa peau ou le léopard ses taches ? Alors peut-être vous aussi faire le bien qui sont habitué à faire le mal”. Romains 01:18 “car la colère de Dieu se révèle du ciel contre toute impiété et toute injustice des hommes qui la vérité dans l’injustice, 19 parce que ce qui peut être connu de Dieu se manifeste dans eux, Dieu a montré il leur. 20 Car depuis la création du monde, son invisible attributs sont clairement vu, être entendu par les choses qui sont faites, même sa puissance éternelle et sa divinité, afin qu’ils soient sans excuse, 21 parce que, bien qu’ils savaient que Dieu, ne pas glorifier lui comme Dieu, ni étaient reconnaissants, ils sont devenus inutiles dans leurs pensées et leurs coeurs foolish furent assombries. 22 Professant d’être sages, ils sont devenus fous, 23 et changé la gloire du Dieu incorruptible en image faite comme homme corruptible et oiseaux et quadrupèdes et reptiles.24 C’est pourquoi Dieu les aussi a impureté, dans les convoitises de leurs cœurs, au déshonneur de leur corps entre eux, 25 qui ont échangé la vérité de Dieu pour le mensonge, adoré et servi la créature au lieu du créateur qui est béni éternellement. Amen.26 C’est pourquoi Dieu leur a donné des passions viles. Même leurs femmes ont échangé l’utilisation naturelle pour ce qui est contre nature. 27 De même aussi les hommes, laissant l’usage naturel de la femme, brûlé dans leurs désirs les uns des autres, hommes avec les hommes à commettre ce qui est honteux et recevant en eux-mêmes la peine de leur erreur qui devait.28 Et même si ils n’aimaient pas à garder Dieu à leur connaissance, Dieu les a livrés à un esprit avilie, de faire ces choses qui ne sont pas approprié ; 29 être rempli avec tous les injustice, l’immoralité sexuelle, méchanceté, la convoitise, malice ; plein d’envie, meurtre, guerre, tromperie, evil-mindedness ; ils sont chuchoteurs, 30 calomniateurs, ennemis de Dieu, violentes, fiers, fanfarons, inventeurs des choses maléfiques, rebelles à leurs parents, 31 aveugle, indigne de confiance, sans amour, impitoyable, impitoyable ; 32 quiconque, sachant le juste jugement de Dieu, que ceux qui pratiquent de telles choses méritent d’être mort, non seulement faire la même chose mais approuver également de ceux qui les pratiquent. une personne déteste et ne pas l’amour Dieu. Si tu as péché même une fois que vous êtes un ennemi de Dieu. Personne ne cherche Dieu ni le faire ils ont la capacité ou le désir de le faire. John 5:39″You sonder les écritures, car en eux que vous avez la vie éternelle ; et ce sont elles qui témoignent de moi. 40 Mais vous n’êtes pas disposé à venir à moi (Jésus) que vous pourriez avoir de la vie”. Lorsque vous vous rendez compte que cela vous pouvez trouver la miséricorde et la grâce en Christ Jésus. Il n’est pas intellectuelle c’est un problème cardiaque. 2) Nous sommes captifs à Satan qui est surnaturel, Satan nous a trompés 2Corinthiens 4:3, mais même si notre Évangile est voilé, il est voilé pour ceux qui périssent, 4 l’esprit du Dieu de ce siècle a aveuglé, qui ne croient pas, que la lumière de l’Évangile de la gloire de Christ, qui est l’image de Dieu, ne resplendît sur eux. Personnes juste ne peut pas comprendre l’Évangile en raison d’attaques de Satan, il faut la puissance de Dieu pour comprendre. 1Corinthiens 02:14 “, mais l’homme naturel ne reçoit pas les choses de l’esprit de Dieu, car ils sont folie pour lui ; « ni peut-il savoir , parce qu’ils sont spirituellement distinguées. » C’est parce que nous sommes spirituellement morts à cause de sont le péché. Nous ne pouvons pas entendre Dieu, même si nous voulions, nous avons besoin de l’esprit de Dieu, nous devons être Born-Again. John 3:3 Jésus répondit et dit à lui, « assurément, je vous le dis, à moins qu’on naît de nouveau, il ne peut voir le Royaume de Dieu. »4 Nicodème dit à lui, “Comment un homme peut-il naître quand il est vieux ? Il peut entrer dans un deuxième temps dans le ventre de sa mère et naître? »5 Jésus répondit : “assurément, je vous le dis, à moins qu’on naît d’eau et d’esprit, il ne peut entrer au Royaume de Dieu. 6 Ce qui est né de la chair est chair, et ce qui est né de l’esprit est esprit”. Signifie que nous n’avons rien à voir avec la naissance de l’esprit. Il n’est pas être religieux qui vous permet d’économiser ou bon. Vous êtes dans le besoin de pardon, et vous ne pouvez pas obtenir sur votre propre. Péché doit être puni et seul Jésus peut vous sauver du péché. 2 Corinthiens 5; 21″ Dieu fait de lui qui n’avait aucun péché d’être péché pour nous, afin que lui {Christ} nous devenions la justice de Dieu”. La puissance qui vous permet de gagner doit être supérieure à vous et Satan, qui est la puissance de Dieu. baptême ne même vous faire économiser, n’entendre la vérité et le rejeter. Il n’y a rien je peux vous dire de faire aujourd’hui, sauf — — > CRY OUT TO A Sauveur qui dit si vous appeler sur ME je te RÉPONDRAI.Quand peter a été naufrage quand il marchait sur l’eau, > il cria Seigneur SAVE ME < dont il avait besoin d’un Sauveur alors que vous. Dieu répond à nous où nous sommes chacun est différent, certains sont enregistrés lentement quelques rapide c’est dieux manière d’agir comme il le souhaite. Dieu sauve et les gens vous diront qu’ils ont été enregistrés à bien des égards. prier une prière simple et autres moyens. mais vous devez avoir la connaissance du Salut pour être sauvé, et c’est ce que c’est tout. Les personnes qui pensent avoir sauvé en récitant une prière en quelques minutes est la chose la plus stupide et accablante qu’on pouvait entendre dire que Dieu vous nettoie en une seconde de toutes vos idoles et le péché. Votre encore qui ont besoin d’un Sauveur toute votre vie, vous avez encore besoin de quelqu’un pour vous purifier, il a promis de vous purifier, avez-vous été nés de nouveau?. Y a-t-il eu un moment l’arrivée de cette nouvelle vie et étant donné que cette nouvelle vie a accouché est leur une nouvelle vie est vécue. C’est être vécue dans la poursuite de la sainteté de Dieu et de Sanctification. C’est la promesse, il le fait pour tout le monde, il sauve. Vous me dire votre enregistré aujourd’hui très bien : laisse-moi voir dans votre vie, comment nettoyer vous êtes, vous êtes de comment zélé pour les bonnes oeuvres, ambitieux Comment etes-vous d’être Saint et être libre de toutes vos idoles. Comment il vous sauver il change le coeur Ézéchiel répandrai puis je s’asperger d’eau propre sur vous, et vous serez purifiés ; Je vous purifierai de toutes vos souillure et de toutes vos idoles. Ezekiel 36:26I vous donnera un cœur nouveau et mettez un nouvel esprit en vous ; Je prendrai le cœur de Pierre hors de votre chair et je vous donnerai un cœur de chair. Dieu prend le cœur stoney et mettre dans un nouveau cœur comme de l’argile qu’il peut façonner au pour suivre, et il va mettre son esprit en vous. Ezekiel 36:27 je mettrai mon esprit à vous et à cause de vous que vous mes lois et vous gardez mes jugements et eux. il y aura plusieurs jours vous lutterez. Vous allez vous battre leur incrédulité et il vous aidera même s’il doit vous faire. votre testament devrait être à accomplir sa ne sera pas un agent libre et faire votre propre volonté. Vous ne pouvez pas être enregistrées et encore marchez dans vos vieilles habitudes, Dieu vous changera. Actes 16:14 “maintenant entendu une femme nommée Lydia nous.Elle était un vendeur de pourpre de la ville de Thyatire, qui adoraient Dieu. Le Seigneur a ouvert son coeur pour tenir compte des choses dites par Paul”. Il prend Dieu ouvrir votre coeur à suivre, le nouveau cœur veut que Dieu. Foi et le repentir sont donnés comme un don gratuit de Dieu. Que dois-je faire pour être sauvé c’est ici > repentez-vous et croyez que vous ne peut pas se repentir parce que vous ne voulez pas Dieu. Il a même d’accorder repentir que vous ne peut pas faire de votre auto. 2 Timothy 2:25″, dans l’humilité de corriger ceux qui sont dans l’opposition, si Dieu peut-être accorde leur repentir, afin qu’ils sachent la vérité… “Foi est donnée à vous ainsi Éphésiens 2:8-” pour par grâce vous êtes sauvés par la foi et que pas de vous-mêmes ; c’est le don de Dieu, 9 sans dépendre des oeuvres, afin que tout le monde devrait se glorifie “. Grace, foi, Salut c’est tout un peuple de cadeaux qui est chrétiens sont repentis vous repentez quand vous péchez, votre condamnées au titre de Dieu. Vous voulez rendre juste avec lui. La plupart des gens pense que repentir dit votre Désolé ou se sentir désolé ce n’est ne pas une des personnes, tristesse effectivement conduit à la douleur de la repentance n’est pas repentir 2 Corinthiens 7:9 “maintenant, je me réjouis, non pas qui vous ont fait Désolé, mais que ta douleur a conduit à la repentance. Pour vous ont été faites Désolé de manière divine, que que vous pourriez subir la perte de notre part à rien. 10 Pour la tristesse selon Dieu produit repentir leader du Salut, ne pas à regretter ; mais la tristesse du monde produit la mort”. vous devez avoir la conviction de péché qui vient de Dieu. Quel est alors le repentir ? C’est une évolution de l’esprit, les émotions et volonté concernant le péché et le Christ. 1) c’est un changement de votre esprit / vous commencez à saisir votre gravité du péché et de Dieu et sa justice et sa justice et que vous ne pense pas que la même manière sur les deux. vous savez plu arrivé vers le haut avec des excuses pour votre péché que vous traiter devant Dieu. Vous ne pouvez le justifier dans votre esprit comme tout va bien, qu’il a changé au sujet de comment vous pensez le péché. 2) vous pensez différemment le péché et sur le Christ, bien que vous détesté Christ et n’avait rien pour lui maintenant, quelque chose vous tire à l’intérieur, que vous vous sentez les débuts d’une affection pour Dieu et une haine de votre péché que vous détestez maintenant ce que vous aimez et aimez ce que vous avez détesté. Un homme qui aime encore son péché est un homme qui est toujours encore à convertir. 3) vous choisissez différemment sur votre péché vous ne suivez après le péché vous suivre après le Christ, vous choisissez différemment dans votre esprit et agir différemment de la façon dont vous vivez votre vie. La façon dont vous savez que quelqu’un est enregistrée est quand ils pèchent après il profession de foi, c’est savoir ou ne pas, il converti car un véritable chrétien pense différemment sur le péché, se sent différemment sur le péché, choisit différemment sur le péché et les péchés chrétiennes, il sent comme la douleur comme la misère qu’il ne l’aime pas. On ne parle ne pas seulement conscients, c’est beaucoup plus profond parlaient le coeur {}. Il est misère il est chagrin et il veut être propre et changer la façon dont les choses il biche, c’est ce que le repentir est. Quelle est la vraie foi, la plupart des gens pense que la foi est d’accord avec la bible au sujet de ce qu’il dit à propos de péché, Jésus Christ et le salut qui n’est pas biblique. Je pense qu’une des choses plus accablantes que nous avons fait aux pécheurs doit dire à croire, mais nous ne leur dites pas ce que veut croire. Charles Spurgeon a dit que le poste numéro 1 d’un prédicateur doit expliquer quelle foi signifie. La croyance de mot est très courante dans notre monde mais personnes ne sais pas ce que cela signifie bibliquement. Ils comprennent ce que cela signifie dans notre culture, comme nous l’utilisons l’un avec l’autre. Mais ils ne comprennent pas ce que la bible veut dire par elle. Les composantes de la foi sont dans le chapitre de Romains 10 1) est un composant > connaissances Romains 10:14 “Comment donc invoqueront-ils celui en qui ils n’ont pas cru (heard)” ? Le point est tout d’abord, il faut entendre la vérité ou une déclaration de proposition avant que vous pouvez l’accepter ou pas, il faut connaître les faits avant de vous jugez vrai ou faux. 2) deuxième bloc de construction de la foi est > acceptation, devraient accepter les connaissances qu’il faut faire la vérité votre dit de croire dans notre culture. Pour beaucoup de chrétiens, c’est quelle foi est j’ai sauf que la bible dites, je suis un pécheur Jésus est mort, là vous allez. Mais après avoir accepté la vérité au sujet de votre péché et parler de Jésus Christ est toujours à court de la foi qui justifie. Foi n’y a rien plus d’entendre et d’apprendre au sujet de Jésus et en acceptant cette réalité et donc conversion aujourd’hui, Salut, nous principalement est d’être capable de dire oui, oui, oui aux bons endroits. Si vous pouvez dire oui, oui, oui aux faits juste nous dire votre enregistré, vous avez avez la foi, non, mais vous n’aurez pas il. Croyez-vous que George Washington était vivant, bien sûr, vous ne vous sauf que fait vous sauf ce morceau de la connaissance, mais George Washington ne peut pas vous sortir de l’enfer au ciel qu’il peut. Vous ne le connaissez pas vous n’avez pas rencontré, mais vous croyez en lui avec un car de fierté comme le père de notre pays, quelle est la différence entre une compréhension mentale de George Washington et de la foi en Jésus Christ, mais il n’y a pas de différence pour tant de gens. Ils ont autant confiance dans le Christ comme ils le font à George Washington qu’ils connaissent et sauf les faits de la réalité là. Les amis de sauver la foi si vous avez sauver la foi vous devez avoir une composante plus. 3) dernier composant est > Trust vous pouvez avoir confiance en quelqu’un, mais cela ne signifie pas votre confiance eux. L’apôtre Paul nous dit Romains 10:9 “que si vous confessez avec votre bouche le Seigneur Jésus et croire dans ton coeur que Dieu l’a ressuscité d’entre les morts, tu seras sauvé. 10 Pour le cœur, on croit à la justice, et avec la bouche la confession faite pour le salut ». avis verset 9 crois dans ton cœur et à 10 avec le cœur, on croit en déclarant comme ça. Le Seigneur déplace la foi juste au-delà de l’intellect au-delà de connaître et d’accepter et il déplace vers le cœur. Pourquoi le coeur?, parce que c’est avec le coeur que vous s’engagent. Vous vous engagez à une personne pas intellectuellement seulement, vous vous engagez avec votre coeur. C’est un engagement plus profond que vient à l’esprit.On parle alors de coeur que nous parlons de la source qui nous vivons sont vie traitant la base essentielle d’une personne en parlant de l’engagement, de fidélité, d’amour, de passions. Je pense que la confiance de mot dire mieux s au XXIe siècle ce que Paul et les apôtres signifies avec la foi de parole au premier siècle. encore un meilleur mot que même confiance est engagement. Il s’agit d’une illustration handicap fille de Victoria des besoins spéciaux, le syndrome de down, autres questions alors elle a besoin de supervision et soins constants. Mais pas n’importe qui peut faire que bon, maintenant elle est avec sa grand-mère qui habite avec nous. Elle sait ce qu’elle a besoin et a aidé et reçu une formation. Maintenant, il ya des gens dans cette salle honnêtement je pense que vous pourriez probablement prendre soin de Victoria. I believe in you!. mais je suis confiant vous avec Victoria. La seule façon je peux vous faire confiance avec Victoria est pour quoi faire. Victoria Drop off à votre domicile demi-tour et à pied. C’est ce que veut dire la foi de parole dans la Bible. Vous ne savez simplement pas Jésus le Sauveur, et vous ne tout sauf le fait qu’il est le Sauveur. Il s’engage à lui non seulement votre éternité, pas juste ciel ou l’enfer, non seulement vos péchés, vous valider votre vie et vous marchez loin de vous reposer en lui. C’est la foi nécessaire ! et c’est la foi qui sauve ! que la foi seule. C’est la foi que Dieu donne et qui est la foi, qu’il répond, maintenant je sais que vous connaissez Jésus et que Christ est venu au monde, né d’une vierge. Votre très orthodoxe à votre croyance, vous savez que Jésus est le seul moyen pour la vie éternelle, vous n’avez pas de doutes à ce sujet, vous n’avez aucun doute quant à la Bible. Si vous arrêtez là mon cher ami toutes vos connaissances, tous de votre acceptation, tous les croire en ces faits ne vous sauvera pas. Ils seront révélera pour être une corde de fumée n’importe comment dur vous essayez de saisir eux ils s’évaporent et vous laisser dans l’enfer. Êtes-vous confiant de Jésus avec vous?, vous devez charger vous-même à Dieu quelque chose de moins est un blasphème pour son engagement à nous il donna tout, il est mort pour nous, il veut vous faire vivre par lui, par lui et pour lui et rien de moins. Galates 02:20 « J’ai été crucifié avec Christ et je ne plus vivre, mais Christ vit en moi. La vie, que je vis dans le corps, je vis par la foi dans le fils de Dieu, qui m’a aimé et s’est livré pour moi ». Paul n’a pas même essayer de vivre selon sa propre foi, dit-il, j’ai besoin de la foi du Christ j’ai confiance en lui que beaucoup l’auteur et l’accomplisseur de ma foi. La différence entre une vraie conversion et une conversion de fausse est ceci. Les buts ultimes ont changé c’est tout. Avant la conversion, votre séjour par vous-même, même vous utilisez la religion pour vous-même. Combien d’entre vous s’asseoir sur les bancs des églises pour le service du dimanche, mais vous n’avez pas dimanche soir ou la prière que vous ne souhaitez pas vous-même, l’impôt vous mettre une grande partie. Je ne dis pas église enregistre non, non, non votre mal me comprendre. Je vous raconte cette foi qui sauve les œuvres, cela fait une différence dans ceux la vie. Vous ne vivez plus pour vous-même vous vivez pour la gloire du Christ. C’est l’ultime objectif aime son bonheur se résume à désintéressé versets de l’égoïsme. Un faux converti peut apparaître très religieux, mais son cœur est toujours égoïste. Le vrai converti considérera jamais l’obéissance au Christ un fardeau ou une atteinte jamais, c’est une joie. C’est l’abandon total complet de votre vie au Christ. C’est ce que la foi salvatrice est, il est à la fin de vous-même et complètement et entièrement confiance toute votre vie à Christ. Personnes vous êtes sage ou êtes-vous fou?, voulez-vous son pardon?, c’est le Sauveur qui est mort pour les péchés du monde, il s’agit de votre âme éternelle, il s’agit de la seule vie que vous vivrez jamais. John 14:6 Jésus répondit : “je suis le chemin et la vérité et la vie. Personne ne vient au père sauf à travers moi. aussi Matthew 07:24 “c’est pourquoi quiconque entend ces paroles de la mine et les met en pratique est comme un homme sage qui a construit sa maison sur le roc. 25 La pluie est tombé, les cours d’eau a augmenté, et les vents ont soufflaient et battent contre cette maison ; Pourtant, il ne tombe pas, car il avait sa fondation sur le rocher. 26 Mais quiconque entend ces paroles de mes amis et ne les met pas en pratique ressemble à un homme insensé qui a bâti sa maison sur le sable. 27 La pluie est tombé, les cours d’eau a augmenté et les vents ont soufflaient et battent contre cette maison et il est tombé avec fracas grand.”

The Gospel. The Most Terrifying Truth of Scripture….


PLEASE READ FOR COMPLETE GOSPEL AND WATCH VIDEO…

This is the true Gospel have you had the right knowledge and know that you are saved or are you believing a different Gospel. Have you cried out to God with Everything you Have?. What attitude do you have when you Cry for Help? Psalm 141:8 But my eyes are upon You, O God the Lord; In You I take refuge; Do not leave my soul destitute. Psalm 142:1″ I cry out to the Lord with my voice; With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication {pleading}.” A cry for help needs to be directed to God and no one else. What does it mean to believe but ( To TRUST )  You can never earn the right for God to save you. Do not try to earn what only God can do. Ephesians 2:8 “ For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast”. It’s not just about a decision for Christ or to be persuaded because of your self- interest for better income , health or whatever self- interest or to just get yourself out of hell to escape it out of fear. Selfishness is sin you can not be saved going to God in selfishness. The Gospel is about being transformed from a selfish Humanistic self conscious person into a selfless God centered and other conscious person. To Be Converted  is to be ( changed ) Matthew 18:3  “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven”. Means you have become something you weren’t before this is a supernatural inward change .  Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. Birth of a sinner is from darkness to light ,not everything physically will change but spiritually will change. A change from total selfishness to a state of unselfish love. Before you are converted your entire life is for self. what will this do for me in my decisions, my self gratification, my glory, my satisfaction, my desires this is are life before being Changed. Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” greatest act of worship is to love God, conversion is the ability to do this. I’m living now for Gods Glory not my own selfishness. You can serve God and be religious but it won’t be a joy until you are converted. A lot of people aren’t saved in the church because it’s for their own benefit that they serve God. The Gospel is not a decision only event . Like praying a prayer that they tell you to repeat, or saying Jesus come into my heart. 1) sin is more than a intellectual problem decision will not solve it, a person is unable and lacks the desire to be converted. Jeremiah 13:23 “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Then may you also do good who are accustomed to do evil”. Romans 1:18  “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. a person hates and does not LOVE God. If you sinned even once you are a enemy of God. No one seeks God nor do they have the ability or desire to do so. John 5:39″You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me ( Jesus ) that you may have life”. When you realize this then you can find mercy and grace in Jesus Christ. It’s not intellectual it’s a heart problem. 2) We are captive to Satan which is supernatural, Satan has deceived us 2Corinthians 4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. People just can’t understand the gospel because of Satan’s attack, it takes the power of God to understand. 1Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”. That is because we are spiritually dead because of are sin. we can’t hear God even if we wanted to we need the Spirit of God,  we must be Born- Again . John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit”. Means we have nothing to do with being born of the Spirit. It’s not being religious that saves you or being good. You are in the need for forgiveness and you can’t get it on your own. Sin has to be punished and only Jesus can save you from the sin. 2 Corinthians 5;21″ God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him{Christ} we might become the righteousness of God”. The power that saves you has to be greater than you and Satan, that is the power of God. baptism won’t even save you, Don’t hear the truth and reject it. There’s nothing I can tell you to do today except ——> CRY OUT TO A SAVIOR WHO SAID IF YOU CALL UPON ME I WILL ANSWER THEE .When peter was sinking when he was walking on the water , >He cried LORD SAVE ME<  he needed a savior so do you. God meets us where we are everyone is different , Some are saved slowly some fast it’s Gods way he does it the way he wants. God saves and people will tell you they have been saved in many ways. praying a simple prayer and other ways . but you must have the knowledge of salvation to be saved and this is what this is about. People who think getting saved by reciting a prayer in a couple of minutes is the most foolish and damning thing that you could hear to think God cleanses you in a second of all your idols and sin . Your still needing a savior your whole life , you still need someone to cleanse you, he has promised to cleanse you, have you been born-again?. Has there been a moment when that new life came and since that new life was birthed is their a new life being lived . it’s being lived out in the pursuit of God and Holiness and Sanctification . That’s the promise he does it to everyone he saves . You tell me your saved today fine: let me see it in your life , how clean are you , how zealous are you for good works , how ambitious are you to be Holy and be free of all your idols. How does he save you He changes the heart Ezekiel 36:25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Ezekiel 36:26I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.  God will take the stoney heart and put in a new heart like clay that he can shape to follow him and he will put his Spirit in you. Ezekiel 36:27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. there will be many days you will struggle . You will fight unbelief and he will help you even if he has to make you. your will should be to do his will not be a free agent and do your own will. You can not be saved and still walk in your old ways, God will change you. Acts 16:14 “Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul”. It takes God opening your heart to follow , the new heart wants God. Faith and repentance are given as a free gift of God . What do i have to do to be saved here it is > Repent and Believe you cant repent because you don’t want God. He even has to grant repentance you can’t do it of your self . 2 Timothy 2:25″ in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth… ” Faith is given to you as well Ephesians 2:8-“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast”. Grace, faith, salvation it’s all a gift people who are Christians are repenters you will repent when you sin, your convicted of God. You want to make it right with him. Most people think repentance is saying your sorry or feeling sorry its not either of those, Sorrow actually leads to repentance sorrow is not repentance 2 Corinthians 7:9 “Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death”. you need to have conviction of sin that comes from God. What is repentance then? It’s a changing of the mind, emotions and will concerning sin and Christ. 1) it’s a changing of your mind /you begin to understand your sin seriousness and of God and his righteousness and his justice  and you don’t think the same way about the two . you know longer come up with excuses for your sin you deal with it before God. You can’t justify it in your mind like nothing is wrong, it has changed about how you think about the sin. 2) you feel differently about sin and about Christ , well you hated Christ and had nothing for him now something is pulling you on the inside you are feeling the beginnings of a affection for God and a hatred of your sin you now hate what you love and love what you hated. A man who still loves his sin is a man who still is yet to be converted. 3) you choose differently about your sin you no longer follow after sin you follow after Christ , you choose in your mind differently and act differently in the way you live your life. The way you know someone is saved is when they sin after there profession of faith that’s when i find out or not there converted because a genuine Christian thinks differently about sin , feels differently about sin , chooses differently about sin and when the Christian sins he feels it as grief as misery he doesn’t like it. were not talking just conscious this is much deeper were talking about the { heart }. There is misery there is sorrow and he wants to be clean and change the way he doe’s things, that’s what repentance is. What’s true faith, Most people think faith is agreeing with the bible about what it says about sin, Jesus Christ and salvation that’s not biblical . I think one of the most damning things we have done to sinners is to tell them to believe ,but we don’t tell them what it means to believe. Charles Spurgeon said the number 1 job of a preacher is to explain what faith means . The word belief is very common in our world yet people don’t know what it means biblically. They understand what it means in our culture as we use it one with another . But they don’t understand what the bible means by it. The components of faith are in Romans chapter 10 1)  number one component is > knowledge Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed (heard)”? The point is you first have to hear truth or a proposition statement before you can accept it or not , you have to know the facts before you judge it true or false. 2)  second building block of faith is > acceptance, should you accept the knowledge that you have to be the truth your said to believe it in our culture. For many Christians this is what faith is I except what the bible say’s, I am a sinner Jesus died, there you go. But having accepted the truth about your sin and about Jesus Christ is still short of the faith that justifies . Faith is nothing more than hearing and learning about Jesus and accepting that reality and so today conversion, salvation, for us mainly is being able to say yes, yes, yes in the right places. if you can say yes, yes, yes to the right facts we say your saved you’ve have faith, no but you may not have it. Do you believe George Washington was alive, sure you do you except that fact you except that piece of knowledge , but George Washington can’t get you out of hell into heaven can he. You don’t know him you haven’t met him , yet you believe in him with a since of pride as father of our country , what is the difference between a mental comprehension of George Washington and faith in Jesus Christ, but for so many people there is no difference. They have as much faith in Christ as they do in George Washington they both know and except the facts of there reality. Friends saving faith if you have saving faith you have to have one more component. 3) last component is >Trust you can have faith in somebody but that doesn’t mean your trusting them. The Apostle Paul tells us Romans 10:9 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. notice verse 9 believe in your heart and in 10 with the heart one believes by stating it like this . The Lord moves faith just beyond the intellect beyond knowing and accepting and he moves it to the very heart. Why the heart?, because it’s with the heart that you make a commitment . You commit yourself to a person not intellectually only, you commit yourself with your heart. It’s a deeper commitment than just with the mind .We talk of the heart we are talking about the source which we live are lives dealing with the vital core of a person speaking of commitment , loyalty, love, passions. I think the word trust better say’s to the 21st century what Paul and the Apostles meant with the word faith in the first century. yet a better word than even trust is commitment. This is a illustration Victoria special needs daughter handicap, down syndrome other issues so she needs supervision and constant care . Just not anybody can do that right, now she’s with her grandmother who lives with us. She knows what she needs and has helped and been trained. Now there are people in this room honestly I believe,  that you could probably take care of Victoria. I believe in you!. but am I trusting you with Victoria. The only way I can trust you with Victoria is to do what . Drop Victoria off at your home turn around and walk away. That’s what the word faith means in the Bible. You just don’t know Jesus to be the Savior and you just don’t except the fact that he is the Savior . You commit yourself to him not just your eternity, not just heaven or hell, not just your sins, you commit you your life and you walk away from you resting in him. That’s the faith required! and that’s the faith that saves! that faith alone. That’s the faith that God gives and that’s the faith he responds to, now I know you know Jesus exists and that Christ came into the world born of a virgin . Your very orthodox in your belief, you know that Jesus is the only way to eternal life, you have no doubts about that , you have no doubts about the Bible.  If you stop there my dear friend all of your knowledge, all of your acceptance , all of the believing in these facts will not save you. They will prove to be a rope of smoke no matter how hard you try to grip them they will evaporate and leave you in hell. Are you trusting Jesus with you?, you must entrust yourself to God anything less is blasphemy to his commitment to us he gave his all, he died for us , he wants you to live by him, through him and for him and nothing less. Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”. Paul didn’t even try to live by his own faith, he said I need the faith of Christ I trust him that much the author and finisher of my faith. The difference between a true conversion and a false conversion is this. The ultimate goals have been changed that’s it. Before conversion your living for yourself, even you use religion for yourself. How many of you sit on the pews for Sunday service, but you don’t Sunday night or the prayer gathering you don’t want to tax yourself, put yourself out to much. I’m not saying church attendance saves no, no, no your misunderstanding me. I am telling you this faith that saves works, it makes a difference in ones life. You no longer live for yourself you live for the Glory of Christ. That’s the ultimate goal his happiness it comes down to unselfish love verses selfishness. A false convert can appear very religious but his heart is still selfish . The true convert will never ever consider obedience to Christ a burden or an infringement never it’s a Joy. It’s the total complete surrender of your life to Christ . That’s what saving faith is, it is coming to the end of yourself and completely and entirely trusting  all your life to Christ. People are you Wise or are you foolish?, Do you want his forgiveness?, this is the savior who died for the sins of the world, this is your eternal soul this is the only life you will ever live. John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. also Matthew 7:24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Pastor Michael Durham discusses what really happens when a person becomes a true Christian. This is from his video with added scriptures and comments.
