Salvation in Christ
DEATH IS A
FACT OF YOUR LIFE…
Hebrews: 9:27 And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
DEATH IS YOUR ENEMY… IT IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
The Bible declares: (I Cor. 15:26) “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death”
WHO WILL DESTROY THIS ENEMY FROM YOUR LIFE?
Heb. 2:9 But we see Jesus … that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. (KJV)
GOD HAS A PLAN WHICH IS CALLED SALVATION
It is important for you to know about this plan because this plan is for your soul, which lives eternal,
and this plan destroyed death.
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, amen; and have the
keys of hell and death. (KJV)
The real battle in this life is for your soul and its eternal destiny: heaven or hell.
FIRSTLY : YOU HAVE AN ENEMY
GOD’S WORD CALLS HIM THE DEVIL!
He is the author of sin and the enemy of your soul. He will do anything to keep you so busy in this world and distracted through circumstances and/or problems, that you will have no time or thought to take care of your soul, and learn about its eternal
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (KJV)
He blinds the minds of the people to the truth from God.
2 Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (KJV)
He is a liar(speaks lies to your mind) and is the father of lies:
John 8:44 … for he is a liar and the father of it. (KJV)
He is a deceiver. Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out,that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceived the whole world..
SECONDLY: YOUR SOUL IS IMMORTAL, IT CANNOT DIE. The Bible declares: Gen 2:7 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 soul (KJV)
There are three aspects to us: spirit, soul and body. The soul is our emotions, our will and our mind.
Our spirit is the deepest part of us and has the potential to know God.
Your soul and spirit cannot die, they live eternal.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him male and female created he them.(KJV)
He did not create men to die but to have eternal fellowship with Him but Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden of Eden, they had a choice to listen to God but they listened to the serpent instead and their fellowship with God became broken. (Gen 3:1-7)
Sin entered into the human race and through sin death.
THIRDLY: BECAUSE OF SIN,WE DIE. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)
James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringethforth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (KJV) Sin is disobedience to God and His Law.
Only one appointment with death for each person.
Heb 9:2 7 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (KJV)
ALL OF US HAVE SINNED AND WILL DIE.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (KJV)
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (KJV)
Each one of us is born in sin and affected by death.
Man cannot deliver himself from sin and death.
THERE IS DELIVERANCE FROM DEATH THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
The Bible says: Rom 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. (KJV) When Adam (one man) disobeyed God the whole human race fell into sin and through sin into death and so by one man (Jesus Christ) all can be made free from the power of sin and death. (We can come back to God)
I Cor 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. (KJV)
I Cor 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (KJV)
GOD GAVE US THE POWER OF CHOICE.
We make many choices while we live on earth. A choice for a job, a choice for a partner in life, a choice for a house, a car, the town we want to live in, all these choices are temporary. God gave us also free choice towards the eternal destiny of our soul , heaven or hell, an eternal place. Joshua 24:15 … choose you this day whom ye will serve. Just as Adam had a choice to obey or disobey, so do we today. We either choose to obey God and listen to the plan of salvation or disobey God and listen to the devil to serve sin and the world.
JESUS CAME TO DIE FOR OUR SINS.
John 3:16 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. (KJV) John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and sayeth, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world. (KJV)
JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS AND TOOK THE PENALTY OF SIN FOR US.
2 Cor 5:21
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.(KJV)
I John 3:5
And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. (KJV)
In the Old Testament, when Jesus was not born yet, the people sacrificed animals in the temple and the blood was sprinkled over the altar for their sin but the blood of animals (the lamb) cannot take away the sins of men.
In the New Testament, when Jesus was born, He became this sacrifice for sin once and for all (the Lamb of God). Heb. 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the Qffering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (KJV)
For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified (KJV)
HE DIED OUR DEATH BEING WITHOUT SIN, ROSE AGAIN AND THROUGH THAT OVERCAME DEATH.
Heb. 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned
with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. (KJV)
I Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the spirit. (KJV)
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. (KJV)
WHEN JESUS CHRIST (THE LAMB OF GOD) DIED ON THE CROSS AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR SINS THE POWER OF SIN AND DEATH BECAME BROKEN BECAUSE HE TOOK THE WAGES OF SIN, WHICH IS DEATH, AND ROSE THE THIRD DAY FROM THE DEAD! HE DIED OUR DEATH AND BECAME OUR SUBSTITUTE.
HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD.
I Cor 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. (KJV)
Rom 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. (KJV)
John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, ana the 1je: he that believeth in me, though he were dead,
yet shall he live. (KJV)
HIS BLOOD WAS SHED FOR OUR SINS.
Eph 1: 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. (KJV)
Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission (KJV)
(because the life is in the blood)
WE CAN HAVE PEACE WITH GOD AGAIN.
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. (KJV)
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (KJV)
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear son. (KJV)
THAT EMPTY SPOT IN YOUR SOUL CAN ONLY BE FILLED BY GOD.
YOU CAN HAVE PEACE WITH GOD IN YOUR SOUL AND SPIRIT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
GOD LOVES YOU!
YOUR DESTINY IS NOT OF THIS WORLD, YOU DO NOT LIVE HERE FOREVER.
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST, YOU HAVE A FUTURE IN CHRIST.
YOUR SOUL CANNOT DIE!
HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL!
GOD’S MERCY AND GRACE ARE THERE FOR YOU
WHEN YOU CALL ON HIS NAME.
GOD TRULY LOVES YOU.
