Salvation is Not a DONE DEAL

Salvation is not just a one time
confession of faith that leads to eternal life. It is a journey that
starts the day that you believe in Jesus and start to follow Him. The
journey only ends in heaven if you stay with Jesus until the end. You
have to obey Jesus and stay with Him until the end or else you will
end up in hell.
Salvation is not a free gift that God
wants to force on you. The wages of sin is death. All have sinned and
come short of the glory of God. No sinners can come into the presence
of God. All sinners will perish in eternal hell and damnation, but
God has through Jesus Christ given to everybody who believes in Jesus
and accepts Him, the opportunity to be saved from hell. Jesus came to
take away the sins of the world. Jesus saves from sin.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came in
the same form as we are, human, flesh and blood. He was born of a
virgin and He Himself, even though He was subjected to the same
fleshly weakness as we are and was tempted just as we are, He never
sinned. He proved that it is possible for a human, to live a pure and
holy life and not sin. He came to do the will of the Father, even
unto death. He, the pure and innocent, was crucified and took upon
Himself the sins of the world. After three days He was resurrected
immortally, never to die again and He gives eternal life to those who
OBEY Him. “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the
things which He suffered. And having been made perfect, He BECAME TO
ALL THOSE WHO OBEY HIM the source of eternal salvation.”Hebrews
Salvation is not a matter of just
believing in Jesus. We have to OBEY Him, obey His words. The words of
Jesus, the words that He spoke are the words of Eternal Life. They
were recorded by the writers of the gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. Jesus is ALIVE, and He discloses Himself to those who seek Him
and obey His words.
The gospel of Jesus Christ, His words,
is the gospel of the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, of which He is
King and He gives eternal life to those who OBEY Him and serve Him as
Lord. If they stay with Him until the end they become part of His
kingdom, they inherit it, live in it with Him, for eternity.
The gospel of the Kingdom was first
preached by John the baptist, then by Jesus Himself. Jesus
said:”The Law and the Prophets were
proclaimed until John. Since that time, the
gospel of the kingdom of God is being preached, and
There is NO easy salvation. It is a
JOURNEY, a STRUGGLE, an ENDURANCE RACE, until the end. Jesus said:”
Those who ENDURE until the end, will be saved.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is clear and
simple, REPENT, stop sinning, be holy, BE BAPTIZED IN WATER for the
forgiveness of your sin. Live your life in obedience to the teachings
of Jesus. He promised the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, to those who
OBEY Him. The Holy Spirit will guide them into all truth and teach
them all things. It is a daily walk, with Jesus, following the
guidance of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of life.
Nobody that is still on earth is
finally saved YET. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the word
of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to US WHO
ARE BEING SAVED it is the power of God.” Jesus said we must pick up
OUR CROSS every day, and follow Him until the end. We read in Luke
13:23 “23And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there JUST A
FEW WHO ARE BEING SAVED?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to
enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to
enter and will not be able.”
Churches preach a lying easy gospel,
once saved always saved, unlimited grace, for just confessing that
you believe in Jesus. Follow after Jesus, not after men and
churches. Do not be fooled by the lies that the churches preach..
Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words, His commandments. Devote
your life to Him and live in obedience to Him, every day, until the
end. Only those who endure with Jesus UNTIL THE END will be saved.

May Jesus bless you.
