Christian Salvation Teachings

Salvation is necessary because people and things here have become deeply corrupted.

If you were to die tonight, would God accept you in heaven? You would if you are truly IN CHRIST. Find out what salvation means. It means more than just being forgiven. God's salvation most importantly gives us cleansing and a new identity so we may escape eternal judgment and enjoy life in God's family.

Salvation also includes deliverance from curses, healing, the transformation of the mind and ultimately a new body in the resurrection. Call out to God. Turn back to God. Yield to God and let Him work in you.

The world and the people in it are broken, defective and corrupt because of the Fall of Man and the spread of sin to all mankind. Against this dark backdrop, God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to save, or rescue sinners (that's you and me).

Salvation is what Jesus did to reverse the effects of the Fall of Man. Everything included in the work of salvation is received through faith. This includes the forgiveness of sins, a new spiritual life, the transformation that comes by the renewing of our mind, divine healing, the resurrection from the dead, deliverance from demons (evil spirits), emotional healing and deliverance from all kinds of CURSES. There is a lot involved in what Jesus did. It was all achieved at the cross where He became our substitute. No other price short of the blood of the pure Son of God was sufficient to pay for all this. We can have these things if we believe. Some of them require patience and some will only be fulfilled in the Age to Come. Nevertheless, it is true to say that God is more willing for us to receive than we are to believe. And this limits the effects of salvation in our lives.

Call out to God. Turn back to God. Yield to God and let Him work in you.

A message for Carnal Christians

This sermon by Paul Washer to a group of Baptist young people could have been addressed to virtually any group of professing Christians in western world and still been just as relevant.

Christians who do not fear God can go to hell

Jesus warned us about the seriousness of sin when He said:

If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. (Matthew 5:29,30)

The Hebraic way of emphasizing something was not to use CAPS or bold text, but to repeat it

Human Guilt – Divine Mercy – Ps Byron Graham

HUMAN GUILT, DIVINE MERCY P2.

As we spoke this morning our God is an amazing God because of the mercy that constantly comes from Him.

This morning we looked at the Prophet Isaiah and the generation of God’s people that he had to speak the word of God too. They were a rebellious people that refused to listen to the Word of the Lord and it lead to their destruction.

The Spirit of the Lord makes the difference

Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor”.

Even as the Son of God, as a perfect human being, Jesus would not have been able to accompany his mission of liberation without the presence of the Spirit of the Lord, the Holy Spirit, upon Him.

Today we have plenty of people trying to liberate themselves and others through the power of their mind, or of the human spirit, or through a political or social philosophy.

We’ve had classic communism, which has largely proven a failure after taking millions of people down to a ver

The Meaning of the Cross

“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2)

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14)

“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” (Romans 6:4)

Losing our Lives for the Gospel

When he had called the people to Himself, with his disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” (Mark 8:34,35)

We can see here plainly enough that the recommendations of Jesus Christ fly in the face of everything that our natural instincts tell us.

Spirit, Soul and Body – the Tripartite nature of Man

"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
(1 Thessalonians 5:23)

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being [nephesh – soul]."
(Genesis 2:7)

What to Do if Feeling Guilty Due to Sin

I am a Christian but I have sinned . I feel guilty. What can I do?

If you know what your sin is, and you feel guilty, thank God for it. This is God's way of helping you to see the need for change in your life. The good news is that you can be forgiven by God. Jesus has already paid the price for your sins.

God has made a provision for us to receive forgiveness of our sins. 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

What shall we make of Matthew 7:21-23

One of the most interesting and controversial passages anywhere in the
Bible comes straight out of the mouth of Jesus Christ, and is recorded
for us in Matthew 7:21-23:

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter
the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your
name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart
from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.
