THE GOSPEL Good News and
How to Find Eternal Life
GOSPEL MEANS GOOD NEWS!
Did you know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (fully man fully God) who came to earth to die on the cross for your sins and mine? Because of man’s sinfulness, Christ was punished and put to death on the cross, buried, then rose again to defeat death and gain eternal life for those who will seek after Him. (1 Corinthians 15) The Bible says, "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). It also says, "And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account." (Hebrews 4:13).
God sees all your sin as though it just happened and one day you must give an account of your life to Him. If your sin is not dealt with before this day, then you will face death (hell), "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23) In His love, God has made a way for you to be forgiven and come to Him. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
God sent Jesus to die in man's place; to take the punishment you deserve so that you can be saved from your sins. The Bible says that, "we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:1). Jesus said “repent lest you perish” (Luke 13:3)
To make peace with God, be willing to admit/turn away from all sin (repent), and come to Jesus as your Lord and Savior, confess your sins and ask Him to forgive you. "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9-10). He will forgive you of your past sins and become part of your life to give you power to live a new holy life, one that is pleasing to God. The same way that Jesus died and rose from the dead, you too must die to your old sinful ways and rise to new life in Him. Born again (John 3:3) means you are born of the spirit to help you to walk in holiness in a new life. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.." (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Religion will not get you to heaven nor can you work your way there by doing good things. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. " (Ephesians 2:8-9).
God has done all He can to redeem you. Will you seek the gift of eternal life that Jesus paid for on the cross? Just before He died, Jesus said: "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). Jesus said eternal life is a narrow way and few find it (Matthew 7) Are you on that road?
Those truly in Christ are changed people who live holy (1 Peter 1:15) and no longer conform to this fallen worlds ways. They avoid partaking of the carnal (sinful) culture but they will proclaim the gospel into it and call others out. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2) and Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (1 John 2:15) Knowing Christ is about seeking and serving Him in truth, holiness/obedience by God’s Word (the bible) not practicing man made religion or relying on good works.
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him (Hebrews 5:9)
If you are not in Christ today or you are part of man's modern religious systems, please read our website at www.dontperish.com. It proclaims God's truth for salvation and it compares man-made false denominational religion to God’s Holy Word and ways. Most are in great spiritual error and will perish. (Matthew 7:21) Jesus Christ commanded that we endure in the faith. (Matthew 24)
Do you have His truth (the good news gospel) or have man-made traditions deceived you? (Colossians 2:8) Religion cannot save you. Please know that we do not belong to any religious organization and we strive only for the true New Testament church that Christ ordained. We are biblical Bereans meeting house to house (Acts 2) and we care about you.
Christ will return to redeem those who are His (Hebrews 9) and the rest will be judged.
(2 Thessalonians 1:8)
