SALVATION

SALVATION MEANS:
DELIVERANCE FROM EVIL, DANGER, OR TROUBLE, IT IS GODS GIFT, THROUGH CHRIST, TO SAVE MENS SOUL.
Why mens souls need to be saved? Because we were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity.


HOW TO RECEIVE SALVATION:
(Gods gift through Christ to save mens soul)

SALVATION COMES THROUGH LOVE. THE PRECIOUS LOVE OF JESUS.
It was through love that he left his throne from above, came down in the form of man, took on the sins of man, even though he knew no sin, allow himself to be crucified on the cross, that through his blood men can have forgiveness for their sins. Mens soul can now be saved! IT IS NOT BY WORK LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST, BUT IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD!


GODS LOVE:

God loves you so much that he sent his only son, JESUS CHRIST, and allowed him to be crucified. God paid for our sins himself. The Lord is good, just and merciful beyond our understanding.

John 3: 16-27 tells:
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

God loves you to the end, it is permanent, it is everlasting. His love is not affected by what we did, think or say. There is no problem that is too big for God!
John 13:1 tells us:
1 when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

It is because of his precious love, why his precious wounds are healing people today.
John 13: 5 explains: He [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24, also tells us:
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Through his blood that was shed on mount Calvary cross we can have forgiveness of our sins.

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: I PETER CHAPTER 1: 18,19.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians 1:7

Only one man that can love us unconditionally right through to eternity, and that mans name is JESUS!
The only man that is willing to give his life for you gave his life for you; so that you can live and have eternal life if you accept him and believe on his name.

Romans 8:35,39, tells us there is nothing that can separate us from the great Love of God.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


ISAIAH 55:6,11. Tells us, no matter how unrighteous or wicked you are the lord loves you and will abundantly pardon you.

6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.

REMEMBER JESUS CHRIST AND HIS PROMISES IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER. Hebrews 13: 8.










HE LEFT HIS THRONE ABOVE:

The Son of God appeared for this purpose, that He might destroy the works of the devil. I John 3:8


HE CAME DOWN IN THE FORM OF MAN

I TIMOTHY 3:16 tells us:
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles,
believed on in the world, received up into glory.


HE KNEW NO SIN

II CORINTHIANS 5:21 explains:
21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
I PETER 2:22- 25, also explains:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously:

(VERSE 23, opened my eyes towards Christ love, (when he was reviled, reviled not again ) REVILED MEANS to reproach, rail at, revile, heap abuse upon (WHEN HE WAS ON THE CROSS, he could railed at these people, or heap abuse upon them, or threatened them, but instead HE COMMITTED OR COMMEND HIMSELF TO HIM THAT JUDGETH RIGHTEOUSLY, GOD HIS FATHER. LUKE 23:46, tells us Jesus had cried with a loud voice, and he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
(Even unto death, there was no guile in his mouth.)


ALLOW HIMSELF TO BE CRUCIFIED

JOHN 10:17-18 explains:
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

I am so happy that Jesus mentioned this; that no man took his life from him.
I was speaking to someone about the LORD, and he was telling me about BUDDA.
This Guy says something to me that I will not forget. He says: The man JESUS was doing a lot of good things and they killed him, why did they do that?
My response was, they did not kill him; but he laid down his life.
He looked at me puzzled.

This is how the scripture explains it:
John 10:7.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my [sheep], and am known of mine.

15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd.

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.


This section taught me how to pray. It taught me that when I pray to God, I need to go through his son Jesus Christ.
GOD sent his son, so that through his son, we can have eternal life.

In John 10: 7 18, JESUS is saying here I am the entrance, the door through which sheep go in and out.
I am he who brings salvation to those who follow my guidance. I am the way, the truth and the life, no one cometh unto the father but by me!
I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd gives his life for his sheep, because he wants to protect them, he wants to save them from the wicked wolf, but a hireling or hired servant will run when he sees the wolf coming towards the sheep.
He will run because he is just a hired servant, the sheep does not belong to him.
He will not sacrifice his life to protect the sheep.

JESUS says I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd gives his life for his sheep.
Jesus Christ demonstrated this to us when he laid down his life on Calvary cross to save us from (SATAN), the wolf, and to save us from sin; so that we can find peace through him and eternal life.

Think of how our earthly father would love us if we had risked our life to protect our earthly sheep. Davis is a perfect example. David was a shepherd boy. He tendered for his sheep. He was also a man that walked in integrity of heart, and uprightness according to the statues of God.

He was tending his flock of sheep when a lion and a bear came and he risked his life to protect them. 1 Samuel 17:34 explains:
34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered [it] out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught [him] by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear:

However, Jesus did more than risking his life for us his sheep. JESUS gave his life for us; his sheep, so that through him we can have eternal life.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.








He also explains that he has other sheep that are not only JEWS BUT ALSO GENTILES:

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.


THROUGH HIS BLOOD WE CAN HAVE FORGIVENESS OF SIN

MATT 26:27,28 explains about his blood.
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Isaiah 1:18 tells us how his blood can take the vilest of sinner and change that persons heart and make them pure and holy; becoming the righteousness of God.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Thus Romans 4:7, tells us:
7 Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
