SAVING FAITH

This world and its lusts plus its corruption is soon passing away, but anyone who does the will of God abides forever.We are all advised not to put our lives’ hopes on worldly possessions,acquisitions,fleshly desires, pride and arrogance,craze after sexual lusts and all forms of sexual perversions,greed,drunkenness with power,star-gazing,palmistry, reflexology,witchcraft,Satanism and all forms of idolatry;all forms of bodily abuse,anti-Semitism, terrorism and all forms of human oppression and abuse.There is no small or big error.There is no small or big sin!Sin is sin;no matter how big or small.Every form of disregard for the CREATOR is sin.Sin in any form,hidden,open,small,or big is punishable. For the wages of sin is death;but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord(Romans 6.23).It is written: Whosoever transgresseth,and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. II John 1.9 This is the end time.This present world and its systems is coming to an end very soon!Reference to man in this message is to the entire human race and not to any gender. God made man perfectly in the beginning and had regular fellowship with them.Man was given power and dominion to rule this Earth.However, man fell from his position by selling out to Lucifer who came deceitfully in the form of a snake(serpent). Man was specially made to live successfully on Earth. Lucifer(also commonly called the devil, Satan, prince of the power of the air)was originally made to live in Heaven, but because he committed high treason, he was cast down from Heaven and thus became a vagabond, having no settled place. Satan chose to dispossess man from his privileged position by successfully tricking him. It took God the simplicity of the gospel to rescue mankind from that fall from glory to shame. GOD had to become MAN in order to rescue mankind. The CREATOR stooped extremely low to bring out man from the pit of sin and the clutches of Satan. When God became man he was born as JESUS through a miracle. The virgin called Mary submitted herself as the vehicle to give birth to the Saviour of mankind! God sent Angel Gabriel to Mary, who told her that she would give birth to a child by the power of the Most High God and that child would be called the Son of God. This would happen outside the natural order of procreation, because nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1.26-38). Satan and the whole of the kingdom of darkness could not comprehend the great plan of God; neither could the rulers of this world. Jesus grew up and became mature physically, intellectually, full of the Holy Spirit and was in communion with God His Father. Born into a humble home headed by the carpenter called Joseph, Jesus lived in obedience to their good parental upbringing, himself learning the trade of carpentry in Nazareth of Galilee. At the age of 33 Jesus began His unique ministry. He went about doing good, healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing lepers, opening blind eyes,setting free those who had been under the oppressive grip of Satan in their bodies, minds and spirits. As a climax of His mission, Jesus laid down His life for the whole of the human race in every generation, every country, and every tongue; without any exception(from Adam to the last person ever to be born). On every Good Friday, professing Christians remember the crucifixion and death of Jesus. The life of any soul is in the blood. The blood of Jesus was shed on the cross and by that He laid down His life! For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life(John 3.16 KJV). A long time before Jesus was arrested and wrongly tried, He had taught and made reference and comparison to an old but great incident in Hebrew history during their exodus from Egypt to Canaan.It so happened that the people grumbled and rebelled against God and Moses,wanting to go back to Egypt from where they had been delivered, after being slaves there for about 400 years! God was angry and thus sent poisonous, fiery snakes to bite them! Many died and several others were at points of death. There was great fear, trembling and agonising cry in the Hebrew camp. The people confessed their sins before Moses and appealed to him to pray for them before God. Moses, as usual, prayed to God. Moses was instructed by God to make a bronze copy of the deadly snakes and hang it upon a pole. Furthermore, Moses must have cried out to the entire camp of Israelites to look at the bronze serpent hanging upon the pole as a remedy for survival. Anyone bitten by the snake, who obeyed and looked at the hung snake on the pole lived and did not die!(Numbers 21.5-9) Jesus said:And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life (John3.14-15 KJV). My friend, have you looked up to Jesus, who was hung on the cross for you and me? Each person must do his/her own looking up to Jesus! There is life in looking to Jesus! God said:Look unto me, and be ye saved,all the ends of the earth:for I am God,and there is none else(Isaiah 45.22). LOOK TO JESUS NOW AND LIVE! There is no other means of salvation for mankind than through JESUS CHRIST! For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord(Romans6.23 KJV). Jesus had you and I in his mind as He hung upon the cross dying, over 2000 years ago! He prayed forgiveness for us while at the same time suffering as a result of our sins, as our substitute. WHAT A WONDERFUL LOVE! Jesus died, was buried in a borrowed tomb, but arose on the third day, alive forever! The wages of sin have been paid by Jesus. Therefore death, sin, Satan, and all the powers of darkness could not hold Jesus captive! HALLELUYAH! Because of what Jesus did, you and I have been set free from the powers of sin, Satan, hell and everlasting death. JESUS is able to save us completely, if we come looking up to him! Any one who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
