Creation, Fall, Redemption vs Judgment

Hello, my name is Mike. I am a believer and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ Son of God. I have come out here today to tell you the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, " But the righteous man shall live by faith." (Rom 1:16-17 [NASB]). Salvation from the wrath of God that we all deserve for our sin, is a gift by His grace through faith in His Son Jesus Christ the Lord. Romans chapter 3 says; "Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God

If I Could Make the World Behave

If I could make the world behave; I f all the elected officials were who I think should be in office,  And if the all laws of the land restricted what I think should be restricted  and promoted what I think should be promoted, I would still have to deal with my mind; For the mind is the most rebellious of all, not willing to obey even itself.  "I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good." (Romans 7:21)

Saved By or Through Faith

"Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You, even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life." (Jn 1:1-2 [NASB]). Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth. He has promised eternal life to His sheep and said, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one." (Jn 10:27-30 [NASB]). Therefore, His sheep are all those who hear the gospel, believe that it is true, sell/get rid of whatever is in the way and come follow Jesus by faith. God saves whom He wills. If you believe and follow Jesus then God has forgiven all your sin;

Alive Forevermore

" These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” (John.16.33) Jesus lived a perfect righteous life glorifying God, He overcame the world and promised eternal life to His sheep; which is everyone who follows Him by faith.  He was crucified dead and buried and then on the third day He rose from the dead.   He gave us eternal life with God. He lived for us and died for us, His  righteous life was our life, His death was our death, His resurrection from the dead was our resurrection from the dead, and because He lives we are alive forevermore in Him.
