Saved & Sure

It is God's will that ALL individuals be saved. Saved from what? The human condition called sin. Although God is the God of Love, He is also Holy. He can't by His nature, tolerate sin. He knew we couldn't save ourselves in our own human efforts for we are born with the sin-nature. ************************************************************************************************************** Romans 3 vs 23, *** "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God;" ************************************************************************************************************** Because He loved us, He chose to pay that required price for our sins by coming to this earth by sending His beloved Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to pay for that sin-debt that we CAN'T pay for. Only He could pay that price, and He DID. For all! ************************************************************************************************************** John 3 vs 16 & 17, *** "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, Should not perish, but have everlasting life. *** For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." **************************************************************************************************************

He knew we can't work our way to Heaven. His Salvation is completely from Him. It's called Grace. Grace means "un-merited favor". ************************************************************************************************************** We don't earn His Favor, Love OR Salvation. He gives it to us freely! Jesus paid it all FOR all. ************************************************************************************************************** All that is required from us is that we Believe Jesus IS the Lord (not just a man, but God Himself came to earth in the person of Jesus. He is called Emmanuel, which means "God with us") *** and that He DID pay for our sin-debt in full, and that He arose from the dead. ************************************************************************************************************** He Lives NOW. He did not die and remain in the grave. He had to rise from the dead to present Himself to the Father on our behalf. ************************************************************************************************************** We must tell Him we DO believe and we receive that gift of eternal Life based on what Christ did at Calvary. *** Salvation Can't be earned by good works..: ************************************************************************************************************** Romans 4 vs 5, *** "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." ************************************************************************************************************** Ephesians 2 vs 5 & 9, *** "For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." ************************************************************************************************************** His Grace: ************************************************************************************************************** Romans 10 vs 9 & 10, *** "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. *** For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." ************************************************************************************************************** We come to Him just as we are: ************************************************************************************************************** 1st John 4 vs 10: *** "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent his Son to be the porpitiation for our sins. " ************************************************************************************************************** Romans 5 vs 8 *** "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." **************************************************************************************************************

It is through faith (belief in your heart) in Christ we are eternally saved. ************************************************************************************************************** "Hebrews 11 vs 6 "But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." ************************************************************************************************************** There is only one way to God, through faith in the finished work of Christ.. The Lord said, ************************************************************************************************************** John 14 vs 6: *** "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ************************************************************************************************************** You can NEVER Lose your salvation once you have accept Jesus into your heart as Saviour! ************************************************************************************************************** 1st John 5 vs 10 *** "He that believeth on the Son Of God, hath the witness in himself: He that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave his Son. **** And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in His Son. **** These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. ************************************************************************************************************** And this is the CONFIDENCE that we have in Him , that , if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us." ************************************************************************************************************** The Holy Spirit is our witness and eternal seal that we are the Lord's once we believe in His payment for our sins. ************************************************************************************************************** Ephesians 4 vs 30 ***** "And Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." ************************************************************************************************************** Jesus assured us, ************************************************************************************************************** Matthew 10 vs 28-30 *** "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. *** My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. *** I and my Father are one." ************************************************************************************************************** John 6 vs 47 *** "Verily, verily I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life." ************************************************************************************************************** Ok, with all that scriptural truth, if you are reading this now and you feel a certain "tugging" in your chest that is the Lord asking you to receive Him NOW! ************************************************************************************************************** Revelation 3 vs 20 ** "Behold I stand at the door , and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door , I will come in to him, and will sup with him , and he with me." **************************************************************************************************************

The meaning of the word "Gospel" is "Good News !" This IS good news! Salvation is a free gift! Salvation is eternal! It can be yours in this very instant... It's simple faith. ************************************************************************************************************** For some being born again is a quiet experience as it was for me. I just simply believed the Lord and I knew I was saved. ************************************************************************************************************** For others it's a major experience. But either way, You are changed, forever. *** 2nd Corinthians 5 vs 17 *** "Therefore if any man be In Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." **** But however it is experienced, salvation is NOT based on a "feeling" , it's based on belief. *** Now we can ask anything of Him according to His Will, and we KNOW he hears our prayers.. 1st John 5 vs 14*** "And this is the CONFIDENCE that we have in Him , that , if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us." ************************************************************************************************************** The Lord knows we fail, and He loves us anyway. He knew we couldn't live the perfect life, and He chose to redeem us anyway.. When He died for us, he arose again the third day. We serve the Living Lord. ************************************************************************************************************** Revelation 1 vs 18 *** "I am alive for evermore." ************************************************************************************************************** One way or the other, we all stand before Him. ************************************************************************************************************** You can be saved NOW! If you died 3 seconds after saying this prayer, you will be with the Lord Jesus for all eternity! ************************************************************************************************************** Pray something like this and mean it and believe it with all your heart. ************************************************************************************************************** "Dear Heavenly Father, ~~~ I confess that I'm a sinner. I need you, and I know that nothing I can do can earn a place in Your Heaven. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I Know the Lord Jesus is your Son, and I believe that You sent Him to die to pay the price for my sins. I believe that he was buried and rose again the third day. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Come into my heart Lord Jesus, forgive me of my sins. I trust you as My Saviour. I know you are the Only way, the truth , and the life. Thank you for this precious gift!~~~~ Amen." ************************************************************************************************************** That's it! You're saved now and forever! ***** See you in Heaven! ************************************************************************************************************** Salvation Saved and sure ************************************************************************************************************** free search engine website submission top optimization
