The Only Way to God – How to Be Saved

GOD LOVES YOU – AND DESIRES TO BE A HEAVENLY FATHER TO YOU 

Hearing You – Empowering You – Blessing You – Protecting You – Loving You – Talking With You – Leading You into An Abundant Life!

So open your ears to hear the Gospel – which means GOOD NEWS! 

ONLY BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST…

ARE YOU ABLE TO BE RECONCILED TO GOD… 

AND HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND JESUS THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO COMES TO DWELL WITHIN YOUR OWN SOUL.

  SIN SEPARATES US FROM GOD.

JESUS CHRIST’S BLOOD RECONCILES US TO GOD…

THIS IS WHY JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD. 

JESUS- LIVED AND DIED – AS A SPOTLESS LAMB – WITHOUT SIN.

 WORTHY IS THE LAMB WHO WAS SLAIN.

 

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:

It was the “sacrifice”, in the Old Testament, that had to be “pure and spotless”… NOT THE PERSON having their sin atoned for.  This is because the BLOOD washed away SIN for that person. A divine exchange took place. God was satisfied, and the person forgiven, because of the blood shed.

This reveals how Christ, the Lamb of God, would wash man’s sin away when He went to the Cross.

The GOOD NEWS is that Christ came to save sinners… not to condemn them… but to FREE them from SIN and DEATH.

John 3:17  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 

You need not become perfect to come to God. You need realize you are sinFULL and that it is in coming TO CHRIST that sin can LEAVE your life.

THIS IS GRACE.

 ANOTHER IMPORTANT REVELATION of the BLOOD OF CHRIST:

In modern day, we run something known as “a paternity test” to determine “the father” of a child…for the blood, comes from the Father…and runs through that child’s veins whom he has fathered.

This modern day “revelation” can help us to actually understand why the blood of one man could save the world.

Jesus was the one man in history who was “VIRGIN born” and Christ himself testifies that His Father was GOD.

Jesus is a pretty high authority, wouldn’t you say? And He testifies of himself as the literal SON, of God, throughout his life.

However God is an even higher authority, and He himself declared:

“This IS my beloved SON, in whom I am well pleased.”

Jesus’s Blood is of GOD…HIS FATHER… It is therefore ROYAL BLOOD…the blood OF GOD.

Therefore ONLY – HIS – POWERFUL PURE SPOTLESS BLOOD – THAT OF GOD’S ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON –

COULD hold the power to save the world from the wrath of God. No “man”but God’s SON could die TO SAVE,

so that we might partake of the love and grace of God, and be free from the law of sin and death.

God loved you enough to send His Son to take your place… to become sin for you and I…

that you and I could become The Righteousness of God IN CHRIST.

Jesus – The Way To God

 LET’S LOOK AT SCRIPTURE:

 

“If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another,

and THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HIS SON CLEANSETH US FROM ALL SIN” (1st John1:7).

Praying DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

Joining a church DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

Living a good life DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

Being baptized in water DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

Partaking of the sacraments DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

Committing your life to God DOES NOT cleanse from sin.

We cannot leave His SON, Jesus, out of it!

THE BLOOD OF JESUS — HIS BLOOD ALONE — CLEANSES FROM SIN!

“For THE WAGES OF SIN is death; but the GIFT OF GOD IS eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Sin pays singular wages: DEATH! Christ died for our sins “according to the Scriptures” (1st Corinthians 15:3).

It took the DEATH OF JESUS, and the shedding of HIS BLOOD,

to pay sin’s debt, and bring REDEMPTION FROM SIN.

“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead,

and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us,

and WASHED US FROM OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BLOOD” (Revelation 1:5).

We read in 1st Peter 1:18,19:

“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; BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

And again in 1st John 1:7 we read:

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

The only way to have your sins forgiven, and your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, is by the precious blood of Christ Jesus.

How do you receive God’s gift of eternal life?

Realize that you are a guilty of being a sinner and are under the condemnation of God’s Law (Romans 3:19).  You and I deserve to be punished for our sins.  We are guilty and without excuse.

Romans 3:23 says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.

And Romans 6:23 says, “the wages of sin = death”…

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sins,

Who will wash them away with His precious blood.

That’s it.  It is one’s faith in the Savior, because of the redeeming power of Christ’s literal blood, that saves a person.  No self-righteous works are required to be saved.  In fact, adding anything to faith alone in Christ is no faith at all.  Either we trust Christ 100%, or we don’t trust Him at all.  Trusting anything other than Jesus means that you aren’t solely relying upon His work of redemption to save you.

Please don’t misunderstand me, you may have all sorts of questions, doubts, worries and fears, and that’s ok, just so long as you place what faith you DO have in the Savior.  Even if you only have as much faith as a small seed, that’s ok, just so long as it’s enough faith for you to believe on Jesus Christ to save your soul from sin and Hell (Romans 10:13).  God does not require a degree of faith to be saved; no, rather, He just requires faith.  Optimism is not faith.  Saying you believe is not faith.  Hoping for the best is not faith.  Saving Faith is when you come as a sinner in need of a Savior, and you actively place your trust upon Jesus Christ to forgive and save you,

because of the blood that He shed for you.

Romans 3:23-28

23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

27Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

28Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

 

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKETH AN ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.” —Leviticus 17:11

“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but BY HIS OWN BLOOD he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” —Hebrews 9:12

It’s The Blood Of Jesus!

IF YOU DIDN’T SEE THIS YET, please view it… Believers, especially you!

 

IF YOU ARE READY TO RECEIVE THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

JUST ASK JESUS TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR…

AND LET HIM TAKE THE RULE OVER YOUR DAILY LIFE. HE IS GOD.

I WILL WALK YOU THROUGH A SIMPLE PRAYER THAT GOD WILL INDEED RESPOND TO.

 

————————————-

Pray this prayer out loud in faith, believing in what you speak, as talking to God. The Spirit of God and Christ, the Holy Spirit, will come to live WITHIN YOU and your new life will begin. Your old life will pass away, as it is, for you will become a new creation in Christ Jesus.  The LORD will transform you by the renewing of your mind, with the Word of God, as you choose to obey your LORD and Savior.

THE LORD WILL INDEED TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE…

AND WHEN YOU DIE, YOU WILL GO TO HEAVEN, IF YOU ABIDE IN CHRIST.

Father God,

I know that I am a sinner and I do not deserve eternal life or earn it by my works.

My sin has separated me from you, and only Jesus Christ’s blood can reconcile me to you.

Yet, Father, I repent of all my sin and I choose to turn away from sin, and desire to be free of sin’s consequences.  

I believe your son Jesus Christ died, shedding his blood, washing away all the guilt and condemnation and penalty for my sin…for ALL my sin… and that he rose from the grave to make me a new creation, and to prepare me to dwell in your presence forever. 

Please Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me.

I am now placing my trust in you alone for my salvation.

I accept your free gift of eternal life.   

I will live my life for you, and make you my Lord, giving you the rule over my life.

Enable us to be in close relationship and give me your wisdom for making my life’s decisions.

Fill me, also, with The Holy Spirit…that He may empower me to live like Christ, and to communicate with you, God, and to equip me to share my faith with others.

And, yes, I look forward to talking with you, and listening to you speak to me from Your Word.  I know you will be closer than a best friend or a brother.

I will confess you, Jesus, before everyone I know, so that they, too, may come to know you.

I believe NOW I am free to be who you have created me to be!

Thank you that now I am saved, and that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit will abide in me and with me forever and ever, even after I die.   

Yes, that eternal life is mine! Fellowship with you God, my Father, and with Jesus Christ, my brother!  And Heaven awaits!

And now I can call myself a Believer!  A Christian!

I’m so thankful!

I love you so much, Lord!  Thank you for saving me!

YOU are the greatest gift I have ever received.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

See John 17:3.

Tribute to my friend, David Lynn Berst

Lynn Jesus SavesDavid (Lynn) Berst was my friend, and he died this past Sunday from cancer, in St. Louis.  I was his Durable Power of Attorney and have been taking care of his affairs since early 2011. He was 77 and a believer in Christ, and attended Amazing Grace Fellowship where my brother-in-law and sister pastor.  For his funeral, which was Wednesday morning, he desired these things to be shared with his loved ones. As he neared death, he spoke them to me, and I wrote them down.  I DECIDED to also share them on a blog entry as a way of tribute to our friendship. Interestingly, my deceased spouse, who I cared for as he neared death from cancer too, was also named David Lynn. I figure that’s a “God Thing”!

To all this I close with this passage of my own that I was given at my husband’s death and find applicable to David Lynn, my friend, as well:

Isaiah 57:1-2

57 The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
    to be spared from evil.
2 Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
   they find rest as they lie in death.
