WHO IS THE ONE TRUE GOD?
WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT GOD
(God's only trustworthy Word for
the human race) tells us: All
of us were born with an unrighteous sinful nature.
We inherited it spiritually from Adam
the first two created people, because of their disobedience to God
by giving into the devil's deceiving temptation. Why would the devil
do such a thing anyway? Because he hates God! The devil wants no
one enjoying intimate, joyous relationship with God. He once had it
yet lost it, and now wants no one else having it either.
God is so holy - so righteous - so pure ... that He cannot and will
not allow unrighteous sinners to remain with Him in heaven. But
God had a plan to undo what Satan did to the human race. Jesus
Christ IS the plan! Jesus came to earth to ransom you and
everyone else for Himself, God the Father, and God the Holy Spirit. He
took full punishment for your sins against God and the sins of
everyone else on the cross so our sins no longer would keep us
separated from God. Furthermore, He traded His righteousness for our
unrighteousness through His death, burial and resurrection! (See: 2
Corinthians 5:21). That is no insignificant
matter, dear one!
Imagine being in a courtroom, and the Judge has just sentenced
you to death. Also imagine Jesus Christ being your lawyer. Jesus
Christ says to the Judge (or in other words, God the heavenly
Father): "Your Honor, I want to serve my client's sentence and pay
the price for his/her wrong-doing by dying instead so
my client can go free." Can you imagine someone doing such a thing
for you?! JESUS
Of course you may be thinking at that
moment: I haven't done anything to be sentenced to die! I'm
being falsely accused! "What have I supposedly DONE, God?!" Here's
your answer: God gave 10 commandments for people to keep in the Old
Testament Bible. Anyone who breaks just one of those commandments
must be punished for breaking them against God. Where does it say
THAT?! It says that in Romans 6:23: For the wages
of sin is death but the free gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
ever lied? Lied just one time? Everyone of us has lied at least
once. Number 9 of the 10 commandments says: Thou
shalt not lie (bear false witness). You know
what that makes us? A disobedient sinning liar against God
and His moral law - His 10 commandments. (Revelation
21:8 also tells us what God thinks of
lying). You just read above what God says about our
disobedient sinning against Him by breaking just ONE of
His moral laws: God's punishment for doing so is DEATH. Spiritual
death. Ultimately total separation from God and agonizingly
suffering for our sins against Him for all eternity -- totally void
of any love, peace, hope, joy or forgiveness from God ever again
(otherwise known as hell).
BUT HERE IS GOD'S BEST NEWS! We can receive
forgiveness for all our unrighteous, disobedience (sins) against God
and our sins against others RIGHT
NOW and have certainty RIGHT
NOW that on the Judgment Day, our sins
WON'T be held against us! HOW CAN THAT BE?! By asking
Jesus Christ to forgive us for our sins and trusting that He HAS
forgiven us of them simply by our asking and trusting! Jesus will do
it! 1 John 1:8-9 says: If we say that we have no
sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess
our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Thus if we make Jesus our personal Lord and Savior - every
time we sin - we have every right to ask
Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sin(s) - cleanse us as though we
never sinned - so that when our heart stops beating, we can be
assured that we won't have to suffer eternal damnation for our sins.
Jesus Christ did what no other human being has ever done or ever
could do. He was the ONLY person on this planet who has never
sinned. And because He never sinned, He
is the only acceptable sacrifice God the
Father would accept to pay ransom payment for each of our sins. That
is simply AMAZING, isn't it?! Yet JESUS
DID IT! WHY? Because of
God's LOVE and MERCY for
lost souls like you and I who will reach out in humility and
demonstrate appreciation for His FREE GIFT of
forgiveness (pardon) so we can have friendship and intimacy with Him
starting now ... and lasting for ETERNITY!
None of us know when our heart will stop beating, do we? Be
HIGHLY encouraged to make peace with God the Father through Jesus
Christ this very moment. Pray and tell Jesus you
are sorry for your sins against God our heavenly Father. Ask Him to
save you from your sins. Daily put Him FIRST in
everything you think, say and do. As soon as possible, be
water baptized, and ask and trust Jesus to fill
you with the Holy Spirit (and teach you how
filled daily!) so you can be
empowered by the Holy Spirit to enjoy reading the New Testament
Bible (God's LATEST covenant Word
to the human race), and obey the commands God has recorded for
followers of Jesus Christ to obey. (It is good for you -- you will
be rewarded for doing so!). Join with other Christian believers who
can help answer the many questions you probably have, and who will
pray for and encourage you. Asking Jesus Christ to be your personal
Savior and making Him Lord of your life is THE
WISEST DECISION YOU WILL EVER MAKE. It will bring
joyous rewards ... and God will be so
pleased that you have NOTwasted the
eternal purposes God has planned for you! God never
created you to be a wasted creation of His - never
forget that - but it is up to YOU to
let God work in your life - daily. He won't force
you. He must always be invited.
Intimate relationship is never sustained indefinitely with another
person without effort -- it's the SAME with God. It requires ACTIVE
pursuit of the most special person in your life. God
desires YOUR active pursuit of Him more than anything else in your
life. He desires FIRST
place - not second. NO
ONE to Him is more desirable than YOU!
He so eagerly desires you
to come to that realization, dear one. He truly does.
This life is your starting point with your loving Creator
that will last for eternity. Don't
allow the devil to steal your eternal destiny! Be
wiser than that.
