Salvation Formula

Bible Questions Answered:
“Pastor, I have this friend I try to witness to him, he admits not being good like god, and thats about it. He says he knows god is forgiving and that's all he will talk about. So I don't know...”
Kelly/Atlanta, Georgia- United States

Bible Answer:
The formula for salvation is not simply “acknowledgment” of one's sins!!

The Salvation formula is, repentance, faith, and then confession!
Not one of these links, may be omitted and or substituted for an other!

An essential link, as seen above, is that of “repentance.”

Our Savior speaks of repentance:

Matthew 4:17 KJV

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 9:12,13 KJV
12 But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Matthew 11:20 NLT
Then Jesus began to denounce the towns where He had done so many of His miracles, because they hadn’t repented of their sins and turned to God.

Mark 2:17 KJV
When Jesus heard it, He saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luke 5:31,32 KJV
31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luke 13:3,5 KJV
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luke 15:7,10 KJV
7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

The Word:

Acts 17:30 KJV
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Romans 2:4 KJV
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and long suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

II Corinthians 7:10 NLT
For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.

II Corinthians 12:21 NLT
Yes, I am afraid that when I come again, God will humble me in your presence. And I will be grieved because many of you have not given up your old sins. You have not repented of your impurity, sexual immorality, and eagerness for lustful pleasure.

Hebrews 6:1 KJV
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

II Peter 3:9 KJV
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Our Savior instructs churches to repent!

Revelation 2:5 KJV (The Church in Ephesus.)
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Revelation 2:16 KJV (The Church in Pergamum.)
Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 2:21,22 KJV (The Church in Thyatira.)
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Revelation 3:3 KJV (The Church in Sardis.)
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Revelation 3:19 KJV (The Church in Laodicea.)
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Just think for just one moment, if mere acknowledgment of sin, made for salvation,
why even devils would be saved, if that were the case. But, they are not!

James 2:19 KJV
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works (confession) is dead?

James 2:19 NLT
19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.
20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds (Confession) is useless?

James 2:19,20 MSG
Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? That’s just great. Demons do that, but what good does it do them? Use your heads! Do you suppose for a minute that you can cut faith and works (confession) in two and not end up with a corpse on your hands?

Romans 10:9,10 KJV
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Repentance, faith, and confession, may not be separated the one from thee other!

Acknowledging that there is a God, is not enough to save anyone!

Repentance: Sorrow over sin, and humble asking forgiveness, with the intent of sinning no more.
Faith: Belief in the living, loving, eternal, Almighty God, who alone has the power to save, and that through His Gift, The Savior of mankind, The Lord Jesus Christ.
Confession: It is not, enough to have repented, and to have embraced faith, a Christian, is an ambassador of heaven, called so be so by our Savior!

Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of
The Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Veil-Upon Their Hearts- 2

Bible Questions Answered:
“What is meant by the blinding vail of the heart?”
Rafah/ Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (Riyadh Province)

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
II Corinthians 3:15 KJV
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

Moses, is referred to as the law, or The Torah, the books of Moses, containing of course The Ten Commandments.

The word of the Apostle Paul:

II Corinthians 3:6-18 NLT (A New glorious Covenant.)
6 He has enabled us to be ministers of His new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of The Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.
7 The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away.
8 Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under The New Way, now that The Holy Spirit is giving life?
9 If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is
The New Way, which makes us right with God!
10 In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of
The New Way.
11 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is
The New, which remains forever!

12 Since this New Way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold.
13 We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away.
14 But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read,
the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand
The Truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ.

(Deuteronomy 29:4 NLT (Sin blocks understanding.)
But to this day The Lord has not given you minds that understand, nor eyes that see, nor ears that hear! )

15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand.

(Romans 3:20 KJV
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Ephesians 2:8,9 KJV
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is The Gift Of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.)

16 But whenever someone turns to The Lord, the veil is taken away.
17 For The Lord is The Spirit, and wherever The Spirit of The Lord is, there is freedom.
18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of The Lord. And The Lord—who is The Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.

Isaiah 6:9,10 NCV (The Lords call to Isaiah.)
9 Then The Lord said, “Go and tell this to the people: ‘You will listen and listen, but you will not understand.
You will look and look, but you will not learn.’
10 Make the minds of these people dumb. Shut their ears. Cover their eyes.
Otherwise, they might really understand what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears. They might really understand in their minds and come back to Me and be healed.”

The original Hebrew reads as follows (This people's heart has become calloused, they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes."
(Israel's sins caused their lack of understanding, not, that it was brought on by The Lord!)

Israel's commands to righteous living, only proved that, they only thing they could do was to fail.
How the book of Judges shows us Israel's past. Obedience, blessing, lethargy, coldness, sin, judgment, repentance, Obedience, blessing. The cycle repeated, and repeated.

Righteous commands, did only one thing for mankind, they were given to show mankind that they were not capable of living perfect (that is sinless) before God!

Jeremiah the prophet prophesied of a day when....

Jeremiah 31:31-34 MSG
31-32 “That’s right. The time is coming when I will make a brand-New Covenant with Israel and Judah. It won’t be a repeat of the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant even though I did my part as their Master.” God’s Decree.
33-34 “This is the brand-New Covenant that I will make with Israel when the time comes. I will put My law within them—write it on their hearts!—and be their God. And they will be My people. They will no longer go around setting up schools to teach each other about God. They’ll know Me firsthand, the dull and the bright, the smart and the slow. I’ll wipe the slate clean for each of them. I’ll forget they ever sinned!” God’s Decree.

What the old covenant could never do (produce righteousness by works) The New Covenant, can do.

Galatians 3:19-29 NLT
19 Why, then, was the law given? It was given alongside the promise to show people their sins. But the law was designed to last only until the coming of The Child who was promised. God gave His law through angels to Moses, who was the mediator between God and the people.
20 Now a mediator is helpful if more than one party must reach an agreement. But God, who is One, did not use a mediator when He gave His promise to Abraham.
21 Is there a conflict, then, between God’s law and God’s promises? Absolutely not! If the law could give us new life, we could be made right with God by obeying it.
22 But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.
23 Before The Way of faith in Christ was available to us, we were placed under guard by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until the way of faith was revealed.
24 Let me put it another way. The law was our guardian until Christ came; it protected us until we could be made right with God through faith.
25 And now that The Way of faith has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.
26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.
28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.

II Corinthians 4:6 KJV
For God, who commanded The Light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give The Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Colossians 1:19-23 NLT
19 For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
21 This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions.
22 Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body. As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.
23 But you must continue to believe this Truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard The Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.

In theology, this is called Justification, when we accept Christ as our Savior, He justifies us, clears our record of sin. Justification: Declared righteous through the blood of Christ, He who took our place in judgment and death, the judgment we deserved.

Praise The Lord, do you know this wonderful Savior?
Receive Him, today, and have you name forever written in The Lamb's Book Of Life in heaven!

Bible Lesson: Miracles Of The Old Testament: Elisha's Dead Bones, Causes A Dead Man To Revive.

Bible Lesson: Miracles Of The Old Testament: Elisha's Dead Bones, Causes A Dead Man To Revive.

Occasion: Miraculous Resurrection.

Location: Samaria

Bible Text: II Kings 13:20,21 NLT
20 Then Elisha died and was buried. Groups of Moabite raiders used to invade the land each spring.
21 Once when some Israelites were burying a man, they spied a band of these raiders. So they hastily threw the corpse into the tomb of Elisha and fled. But as soon as the body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man revived and jumped to his feet!

An Israelite had died, and his relatives and friends went out to bury him. Off in the distance they saw what they believed to be Moabite raiders, come to pillage and loot the people of God.

There would be no time for digging a grave for their friend. Seeing Elisha's sepulcher near by they removed the stone seal, and threw their friend in, and made haste to retreat.

But a strange thing happened when the body of their dead friend, touched the bones of the Prophet Elisha, their dead friend came back to life, and …..left with them.

Miraculous Resurrection!

“Pastor, oh how thankful we must be for all the holy artifacts of the church, such as “wood from the cross of Christ, holy nails of Calvary, remanents of the crown of thorns, the holy grail, and shroud of Turin....!”

Is that what you are thinking?

Our living God, has destroyed religious artifacts, for fear of their being worshiped, INSTEAD OF HIS DEAR SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!

Stop here, and read the blog posting..... (Bible Lesson:) Relics-Church

Nothing, but nothing (Idols included), are to usurp the glory and honor that belongs to Christ alone!

Exodus 20:1-6 KJV
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am The Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I The Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.

Isaiah 42:8 KJV
I am The Lord: that is My name: and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.

The God we serve is the God of resurrection!

Ezekiel 37:14 KJV
1 The hand of The Lord was upon me, and carried me out in The Spirit Of The Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
4 Again He said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear The Word Of The Lord.
5 Thus saith The Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am The Lord.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said He unto me, Prophesy unto The Wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to The Wind, Thus saith The Lord God; Come from the four winds, O Breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the Breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then He said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith The Lord God; Behold, O My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am The Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put My Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I The Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith The Lord.

John 11:20-45 KJV
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him: but Mary sat still in the house.
21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto Him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am The Resurrection, And The Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto Him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art The Christ, The Son Of God, which should come into the world.
28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto Him.
30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him.
31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying unto Him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in The Spirit, and was troubled.
34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto Him, Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 Then said the Jews, Behold how He loved him!
37 And some of them said, Could not this Man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard Me.
42 And I knew that thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent Me.
43 And when he thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him.

Matthew 27:50-54 KJV (The scene at Calvary.)
50 Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost (His Spirit).
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was The Son Of God.

God's people will have victory over death, because of the “finished,” work of The Lord Jesus Christ.

I Corinthians 15:50-58 NLT
50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.
51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed!
52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.
53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.
54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”
56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.
57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for The Lord, for you know that nothing you do for The Lord is ever useless.

Hebrews 2:14,15 NLT
14 Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—The Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.
15 Only in this way could He set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

Do you know this wonderful Savior? His secret coming for His people, could be at any moment.
Call upon Him now.

Resurrection-Job's Belief

Bible Questions Answered:
“How could Job think resurrection, which he knew nothing of?...”
Thana/ Dubai, Saudi Arabia

Bible Answer:

Yes, Job believed in bodily resurrection, and that he would see his Redeemer, in his flesh!

Job 19:23-27 KJV
23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
25 For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Long before...

Genesis 5:24 KJV
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Genesis 28:10-13 NLT (Jacob has a dream at Bethel.)
10 Meanwhile, Jacob left Beersheba and traveled toward Haran.
11 At sundown he arrived at a good place to set up camp and stopped there for the night. Jacob found a stone to rest his head against and lay down to sleep.
12 As he slept, he dreamed of a stairway that reached from the earth up to heaven. And he saw the angels of God going up and down the stairway.
13 At the top of the stairway stood The Lord, and He said, “I am The Lord, The God of your grandfather Abraham, and The God of your father, Isaac. The ground you are lying on belongs to you. I am giving it to you and your descendants.

Exodus 24:9-12 KJV
9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:
10 And they saw The God Of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness.
11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He laid not His hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
12 And The Lord said unto Moses, Come up to Me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Ancient Egyptians believed in bodily resurrection, their culture was bound to it.

Job's hope was in his God, his Redeemer, Vindicator.

Psalm 19:14 KJV
"...O Lord, my Strength, and my Redeemer."

Isaiah 47:4 KJV
As for our Redeemer, The Lord Of Hosts is His name, The Holy One Of Israel.

What Job believed:

25 For I know that my Redeemer liveth,
25 and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

The Word:

Psalm 17:15 KJV
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Isaiah 33:17 KJV
Thine eyes shall see The King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

John 17:24 KJV
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given Me, be with me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which thou hast given Me: for thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world.

I Corinthians 13:12 KJV
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

II Corinthians 5:1 KJV
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

I John 3:2 KJV
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.

- - – - – - -

I Corinthians 15:51-58 KJV
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of The Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in The Lord.

I Thessalonians 4:13-18 NLT
13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.
14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with Him the believers who have died.
15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.[g] 16 For The Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air. Then we will be with The Lord forever.
18 So encourage each other with these words.

“...I'm loosing friends because they say I'm closed minded to new ways or ideas. Other people may believe differently so give a little. Be more accepting they tell me...”
Tod/ Surrey, Canada British Columbia

Bible Answer:

In Christ's day no doubt He was thought of intolerant and closed minded.
Our Lord told Thomas.....
John 10:9 KJV
I am The Door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

John 14:6 KJV
Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by Me.

How exclusive can you get? All other religious beliefs, and there were and today are, do not lead to
The Father.

Christ's way, was and is the only way!

Peter boldly stated...
Acts 4:12 NLT
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

II Peter 3:3 NLT
Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking The Truth and following their own desires.

The Apostle Paul....
I Timothy 2:5 NLT
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—The Man Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:18 KJV
For through Him (Jesus Christ) we both have access by one Spirit unto The Father.

Ephesians 3:12 NLT
Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.

Matthew 7:13-23 KJV
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;
but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Revelation 3:8 NLT
I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed My Word and did not deny Me.

Without any doubt, a sign of a false religious system, is abandonment of Biblical beliefs for worldly acceptance!

See it and recognize it.

When you see Biblical Standards ambushed and replaced with human earthly ideas and desires, beware, beware. Such things will only increase, more and more, until the ones with standards of Truth and morality will be the ones held suspect.

Apostle Paul's Last Days Warning:

II Thessalonians 2:1-17 KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what (Who) withholdeth that he might be revealed in is time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom The Lord shall consume with The Spirit Of His Mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of The Truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not The Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of The Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of The Spirit and belief of
The Truth:
14 Whereunto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

II Timothy 2:1-5 NLT
1 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.
2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.
3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good.
4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.
5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

Satan Judged.

Bible Questions Answered:
“The scripture, the prince of this world is judged at John 16:11 the meaning is?...”
Raleigh/ Leeds, United Kingdom (England)

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:

John 16:5-11 NLT
5 “But now I am going away to The One who sent Me, and not one of you is asking where I am going.
6 Instead, you grieve because of what I’ve told you.
7 But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, The Advocate won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send Him to you.
8 And when He comes, He will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment.
9 The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in Me.
10 Righteousness is available because I go to The Father, and you will see Me no more.
11 Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged.

John 16:11 KJV
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Who was the serpent?
Revelation 12:9 KJV
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Way back in Genesis, in the garden of Eden, God made a victorious Messianic promise and pronounced a judgment upon the serpent.

Genesis 3:14,15 KJV
14 And The Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Genesis 3:14,15 NLT
14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all animals, domestic and wild. You will crawl on your belly, groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He (Christ) will strike your head, and you will strike His heel.”

The Devil was forever judged at the cross, the cross was our Lord's victory over Satan. And yet Satan's sentence will not be carried out until the end of the millennial reign of Christ.

Philippians 2:7-11 KJV
7 But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of A Servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as A Man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God The Father.

Colossians 1:19,20 NLT
19 For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

Colossians 2:13-15 NLT
13 You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins.
14 He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.
15 In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross.

II Thessalonians 2:8 KJV
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom The Lord shall consume with The Spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:

Hebrews 2:14 KJV
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Hebrews 12:2 KJV
Looking unto Jesus The Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at The Right Hand Of The Throne Of God.

I John 3:8 KJV
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose The Son Of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Because the enemy has already been defeated, our Lord tell us ….
Luke 10:19 KJV (Jesus)
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of
The Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Judgment At Last Carried Out:

Revelation 20:10 KJV
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are (Have already been for 1,000 years), and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

8 And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me.

Matthew 16:24 KJV

Bible Lesson: Miracles Of The Old Testament: The Syrian Army Routed.

Bible Lesson: Miracles Of The Old Testament: The Syrian Army Routed.

Occasion: Samaria Delivered From Siege.

Location: Samaria.

Bible Text:
II Kings 6:24-33 NLT (King Ben-Hadad surrounds Samaria.)
24 "...King Ben-hadad of Aram mustered his entire army and besieged Samaria.
25 As a result, there was a great famine in the city. The siege lasted so long that a donkey’s head sold for eighty pieces of silver, and a cup of dove’s dung sold for five pieces of silver.

26 One day as the king of Israel was walking along the wall of the city, a woman called to him, “Please help me, my lord the king!”
27 He answered, “If the Lord doesn’t help you, what can I do? I have neither food from the threshing floor nor wine from the press to give you.”
28 But then the king asked, “What is the matter?”
She replied, “This woman said to me: ‘Come on, let’s eat your son today, then we will eat my son tomorrow.’
29 So we cooked my son and ate him. Then the next day I said to her, ‘Kill your son so we can eat him,’ but she has hidden her son.”
30 When the king heard this, he tore his clothes in despair..."

Would God forsake the people of Samaria? Never, for that night....

II Kings 7:6,7 NLT
6 "...The Lord had caused the Aramean army to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army approaching. “The king of Israel has hired the Hittites and Egyptians to attack us!” they cried to one another.
7 So they panicked and ran into the night, abandoning their tents, horses, donkeys, and everything else, as they fled for their lives.

Israel's victory.

II Kings 7:13-16 NLT
13 One of his officers replied, “We had better send out scouts to check into this. Let them take five of the remaining horses. If something happens to them, it will be no worse than if they stay here and die with the rest of us.”
14 So two chariots with horses were prepared, and the king sent scouts to see what had happened to the Aramean army.
15 They went all the way to the Jordan River, following a trail of clothing and equipment that the Arameans had thrown away in their mad rush to escape. The scouts returned and told the king about it.
16 Then the people of Samaria rushed out and plundered the Aramean camp. So it was true that five quarts of choice flour were sold that day for one piece of silver, and ten quarts of barley grain were sold for one piece of silver, just as the Lord had promised.

Yes, there is a spiritual lesson here!

The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

4 He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make The Lord your Refuge, if you make The Most High your Shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
11 For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My name.
15 When they call on Me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life and give them My salvation.”

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by loves strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirits sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit's call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Bible Questions Answered:
“A church I recently attended had apostles. My family church never had this, whats the difference?”
Alexander/ Los Angeles, California U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
After the death of Judas Iscariot, the eleven remaining disciples wished again that their number be twelve (Based upon the 12 tribes of Israel.), so they set requirements for being an Apostle, as the following:

Requirements For Apostleship:

Acts 1:21,22 NLT (Notice the criteria given.)
21 “So now we must choose a replacement for Judas from among
the men who were with us the entire time we were traveling with The Lord Jesus—
22 from the time He was baptized by John until
the day He was taken from us.
Whoever is chosen will join us as a witness of Jesus’ resurrection.”

*Someone who had traveled with the disciples and The Lord Jesus from the beginning.
*That is from John's baptism until Christ's resurrection.
*An Apostle successor, must be a person who was baptized by John the baptist., as was The Lord Jesus.
*A witness of Christ's resurrection.

For these Biblical reasons, how could there be Apostles today?

And yet there are some who believe that some because of their ministry, they qualify nonetheless as Apostles.

II Corinthians 12:12 NLT (The Apostle Paul.)
When I was with you, I certainly gave you proof that I am an apostle. For I patiently did many signs and wonders and miracles among you.

Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV
11 And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of The Son Of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

A minister who has signs, wonders, miracles and prophecy (Which may be Godly forth telling for inspired preaching.) may he indeed, be called an Apostle, many think so.

The choice is up to the believer.

15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments.
16 And I will pray The Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;
17 Even The Spirit Of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save The spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but The Spirit Of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but The Spirit which is of God;
that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which
The Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
