THE ABSENCE OF GOO
OF COURSE NOT!
a) THEY LACK THE MAJOR FACTOR: THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
b) THEY ALL HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON = FAILURE.!
c) THEY ARE ALL= (EQUAL TO) PAIN, DECEPTION, FALSE RELIGION, DARKNESS BITTERNESS, HOPELESSNESS, ETC. WHY NOT?
SIMPLE, IF YOU THINK ABOUT THIS: ALL OF THESE FORMULAS ARE GIVEN TO YOU BY THIS WORLD'S BANK, AND THIS BANK'S CHAIRMAN (OWNER) IS CALLED SATAN: THE MAIN ENEMY OF YOUR SOUL. Jesus called him: 'The Prince of this world" (John12:31). Paul called him: "The god of this world that came to steal, kill, and destroy" John 10:10. WHAT ELSE CAN WE EXPECT FROM HIM BUT DARKNESS?
STILL, SOME MAY SAY: 'WELL, I DON'T ACCEPT THIS AS TRUE I HAVE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL LIFE, A WONDERFUL FAMILY, AND A CLEAN CONSCIENCE BEFORE GOD". GREAT! CONGRATULATIONS! BUT THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WE ARE ALL SINNERS(Romans 3:10) AND THEREFORE, ALL CURSED BY ANOTHER NATURAL LAW OR FORMULA: LIFE+ SIN= DEATH
YES, WE ARE ALL SINNERS ANO THEREFORE, WE ALL HAVE TO DIE "FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH" (ROMANS6:23) ANO REGARDLESS OF ALL OUR HUMAN ACHIEVEMENTS, DEATH MEANS DEFEAT FOR OUR EXISTENCE BECAUSE: "FOR WHAT IS A MAN PROFIT IF HE SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD, ANO LOSE HIS OW# SOUL ?" (MATTHEW 16:26)
ONLY VICTORY OVER DEATH WILL GIVE YOU A SUCCESSFUL EXISTENCE, AND THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE WAY TO OBTAIN THAT VICTORY: BY USING GOD'S FORMULA!
DO YOU MEAN THAT GOD HAS A SPECIAL FORMULA TO END OUR DESPAIR, LACK OF SPIRITUAL PEACE, AND HOPELESSNESS?
YES, HE DOES!
REPENTANCE+ JESUS+ CONSECJIATION= ETERNAL LIFE LIVING
THIS SIMPLE FORMULA, EXTRACTED FROM GOD'S BOOK OF RULES AND REGULATIONS(THE BIBLE), TELLS US THAT: IF YOU REPENT OF YOUR SINFUL CONDITION BEFORE GOD, ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR AND CONSECRATE YOUR LIFE TO HIM, YOU SHALL BE SAVED AND LIVE ETERNALLY.
Romans 10:9 read: "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved" AND JESUS HIMSELF TELLS US: 'Verily, Verily, I say to you, he that hears my word, and believes on Him that sent Me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death into life." (John 5:24) "And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent" (John 17:3)
THAT IS THE ONLY FORMULA THAT ENABLES US TO OBTAIN TOTAL VICTORY IN THIS LIFE AND OVER DEATH." YOU MEAN THAT IF I LIVE ACCORDING TO THAT FORMULA, I WON'T HAVE TO DIE?" EXACTLY!
SALVATION, A GIFT FROM GOD, IS SIMPLE AND FREE; NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT BUT BECAUSE OF GOD'S GRACE AND MERCY, NOT BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM, "Because He loved us first" (Ephesians 2:4)
WHEN YOU ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR USING GOD'S FORMULA, YOU START SAVING IN HEAVEN, 'Where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal, (Matthew 6:20) You have nothing to lose and a lot to win:
Natural Faith or Salvation Faith... Which one do you have?
Three Types of Faith: Divine, Natural, and Salvation Faith
God gave Faith to Adam (to humans) when he breathed spirit of life into him. This Faith is called "Divina" because it came from within God Himself, and the Holy Spirit was in control of it in Adam and Eve’s minds. (Genesis 2:7)
When Adam and Eve sinned, the Holy Spirit left their minds, but even so, they continued to have faith in God by nature. This Faith is called “Natural” because this is the type of Faith with which all human beings are born after Adam and Eve. This is a very deceptive faith because although all humans are born believing in God, they are disconnected from Him. This is also the faith used by Satan to make people believe that because they believe in God and are "Good People," they are spiritually clean to enter the kingdom of heaven.
This is the Faith that Jesus came to bring us from Father. This is called "Salvation Faith" because it restores the "Divine Faith" that the devil stole from Adam and Eve (humans) and makes us children of God again. Contrary to the “Natural faith,” which is given to every human being by Nature, this "Faith" can only be obtained through a new spiritual birth by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3)
In conclusion, if you have not been spiritually born by the Holy Spirit, you have a "Natural Faith," and that faith is contaminated by sin. According to Jesus himself, this faith is not valid to enter heaven. Regardless of how strong we feel about believing and loving God, Jesus tells us that "we must be born again” to be saved. It is clear then by the Words of Jesus, that no one can be save (except babies and children, which by the grace and mercy of God are forgiven until they reach their own individual accountability age that only God knows) in the spiritual condition in which is born. That was what Jesus told Nicodemus in John chapter 3.
Of course, that if you are a sincere seeker of salvation, you may ask: How then can I be born again? Romans 10:9-10 tells us, " 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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." These verses tell us that in order to please God and obtain His "Salvation Faith" we must: Recognize that we are sinners, repent, accept Jesus as our savior, and crucify ourselves with him on the cross. (Romans 8:16)
Are you willing to do that?
A - Admit and Repent
Admit that you have live wrong repent and ask God forgiveness. (Romans 3:23) All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 6:23) "The wages of sin is death." (I John 1:9) "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
B - Believe
Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again as a payment for your sins. (John 3:16) "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." (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 ) Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day. (Romans 5:8) "But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
C - Confess and Choose
Confess and choose to allow God to be in charge of your life (Matthew 16:24) "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Romans 10:9) "If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:13) Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
