THE GOSPEL Good News and
How to Find Eternal Life
Gospel means GOOD NEWS and followers of Christ are commanded to GO and proclaim it to all, so that is what we are striving to do for God's glory at dontperish.com
But before we tell you the good news you must know the bad news first so you can appreciate the gospel and know what is at stake!
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).
You see, sin separates us from God and it will lead one to hell not heaven! God's Word is so very clear...."the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23)
First, you will die physically due to sin and then you will be judged and die spiritually in hell eternally without Christ as your Lord and Savior. God will judge all those who are NOT His holy people and send them into outer darkness. We love you and want better for you. So that is the bad news ... God's wrath is hanging over you, due to your sins. But let us rejoice.......we have the GOOD NEWS GOSPEL!!!
Jesus Christ is the Son of God (fully man / fully God) who came to earth to die on the cross for your sins and to defeat death. Because of man’s sinfulness, Christ was sent to the cross (shed His blood for forgiveness of sins) put to death (God's will), buried and then rose again to defeat death! 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. John 3:16
He showed us God's Kingdom to come and how to love God. love each other and our neighbor. He alone could over come the world / satan and gain eternal life for those who will seek after Him.
God in His love ( a one time act through Christ ) has made a way for you to be forgiven of your sins and gain eternal life with Him. Please know it is NOT just believing, doing some religion and going to heaven. That is all a lie!!!
In order to find that eternal life per God's Word you MUST have these 5 biblical gospel principles act work in your life:
1) Faith... in the finished work of Christ ( fully man, fully God ) and His perfect sacrifice for sins ( John 3:16 )
2) Repentance ... turning from your fallen mind and ways to God's Holy ways. ( Luke 13:3 )
3) Born again... you must be born of God's spirit to ever see eternal life. In this new life, He gives you a new heart and mind to then serve Him. ( John 3 )
4 ) Holiness with obedience.... if your changed by God you WILL, as fruit, strive to leave all sin, worldliness, carnality and false ways ( like man made religion ) and obey His commands and be holy in all your ways. ( 1 Peter 1:15 / Heb 5:9 / Heb 12:14)
5) Endure in your faith.... You MUST keep clinging to Christ via this saving faith to the end of your life, lest you fall away and have believed in vain. ( Matt 10 and 1 Corinthians 15 )
The gospel is not just a religious action. No, it changes your entire life and you NO LONGER live for yourself but live to serve God alone. Jesus said you MUST worship God in spirit and truth. John 4:24
So you must be BORN of His spirit and you must seek Him in truth, not false religious ways of man that MOST today are doing each Sunday in ritual false man made ways.
Do you have His truth (the good news gospel) or do you have your own faith or a man-made tradition that has deceived you? ( Colossians 2:8 ) Religion cannot save you nor can being good. God's wrath is upon all those (NOT born of Him) at their death. The worlds religions and denominations are full of the false gospels of man. Test your own faith and gospel to God's Word lest you be turned away in eternity as Matt 7.21 speaks of. (See our 10 point biblical test below.)
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 ( sports, TV, movies, feminism, man made denominational religion etc ) but they will GO and proclaim the gospel into the world and call others out of it.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2)
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 your good works.
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him (Hebrews 5:9)
Warning: Jesus speaks of a NARROW road that FEW will find. Matthew 7. Are you on it? Or are you on the broad road to destruction?
Please know that we do not belong to any religious organization nor do we sell any thing of God or take money from anyone. (We labor -run a small business- to preach the truth.) We strive only for the true New Testament body that Christ ordained having left man made denominational religion. We are biblical Berean's testing all things, meeting house to house (Acts 2) and we care about you our neighbor.
Christ will return to redeem those who are born of Him (Hebrews 9) per His gospel (His love ) and the rest will be judged and will suffer in hell. ( His wrath ) 2 Thessalonians 1:8
Please consider your sin problem and the good news, God's offer to you and act upon it today; while you still have time!
BELIEVE, REPENT, BE MADE NEW, OBEY THE GOSPEL IN HOLINESS and ENDURE until THE END!
