Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). 

God’s word says, “For whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13). It also says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1). “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1 John 5:12). “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” (2 Corinthians 5:21). And since He will save you now “according to His mercy” (Titus 3:5), you can be “confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).

There is a well known story told of Napoleon the First’s time. In one of the conscriptions, during one of his many wars, a man was balloted as a conscript who did not want to go, but he had a friend who offered to go in his place. His friend joined the regiment in his name, and was sent off to the war. By and by a battle came on, in which he was killed, and they buried him on the battle field. Some time after the Emperor wanted more men, and by some mistake the first man was balloted a second time. They went to take him, but he remonstrated. ‘You cannot take me.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘I am dead,’ was the reply. ‘You are not dead; you are alive and well.’ ‘But I am dead,’ he said. ‘Why, man, you must be mad! Where did you die?’ ‘At, such a battle, and you left me buried on such a battle field.’ ‘You talk like a madman,’ they cried; but the man stuck to his point that he had been dead and buried some months. ‘Look up your books,’ he said, ‘and see if it is not so.’ They looked, and found that he was right. They found the man’s name entered as drafted, sent to the war, and marked off as killed. ‘Look here,’ they said, ‘you didn’t die. You must have got some one to go for you. It must have been your substitute.’ ‘I know that,’ he said; ‘he died in my stead. You cannot touch me. I died in that man, and now I go free. The law has no claim against me.’ They would not recognize the doctrine of substitution, and the case was carried to the emperor, who said that the man was right, that he was dead and buried in the eyes of the law, and that France had no claim against him.

The story may be true, or may not, but one thing I know to be true, that the Emperor of heaven recognizes the doctrine of substitution. Christ died for me; that is my hope of eternal life. ‘There is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus’ (D. L. Moody, Select Sermons [Chicago: The Bible Institute Colportage Association, n. d.], 38-9).

If you would like to commit your life to Christ and receive eternal life right now, the following is a suggested prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, please come into my life. Thank you for dying for all my sins and canceling my debt. I turn from all my sins ) and I turn to you for a new life. I am sorry for living to exalt myself or anything else instead of you and your will for me. Please forgive me, and I will trust you alone to make me the kind of person you want me to be. I surrender my life into your keeping, so teach me to be a good disciple of you. Thank you for now saving me and making me your child. In your name I pray, amen.

“I come to you in the name of the Lord”(1 Samuel 17:45). These words were spoken by David. They were spoken to Goliath. It seemed like David didn’t have any a chance against Goliath. The odds were stacked against David. Everything pointed to a Goliath victory – everything except this: “I come to you in […]

Why do you say no? When he died for you! No matter what u have done , it makes no difference. A church is not necessary to be saved. But a good idea for growth. Jesus didn’t practice religion. He was baptized by brother John in the JORDAN RIVER. Just HAVE A TALK WITH HIM..HE CAN LISTEN WHOLE ETERNITY IF YOUR SERIOUS!! He never said no one who called out his name for help!

One of the biggest responsibilities in life, Is teaching Jesus to your children, It is a proven fact, kids who learn the word will come back to Christ later on, The importance of BIBLE SCHOOL and attending Sunday School. {If they choose to leave church growing up as adults?)

In the King James Bible it reveals’ the following? The responsibility of Children’s Christian education lies at the feet of the father, Its better for the parents to attend ,

I was always worried about a war happening when My son turned 18-21 age, What if he was killed in combat not knowing Jesus? He would not only be dead, but going to hell as well!

Jesus asks you to teach your children about Christ, don’t wait untilits to late,,,cheers?

When was the last time you wrote a article on the GOSPEL OF GOD.? ITS been a long time! The reason I know? I never see but a few on the website,

God did not tell us to tell people how to organize their love lives? Proper way to handle other peoples problem. I could go on forever?

Jesus aka GOD in the flesh, told his disciples to spread the good news about the KINGDOM OF GOD? Simple as can be? We are not following one of God’s instructions. I think there’s too many people do not have the slightest idea on being saved.? What say you?

What is the Christian doctrine of salvation?


video

Question: “What is salvation? What is the Christian doctrine of salvation?”

Answer: 
Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. To save is to deliver or protect. The word carries the idea of victory, health, or preservation. Sometimes, the Bible uses the words saved or salvation to refer to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul’s deliverance from prison (Philippians 1:19).

More often, the word “salvation” concerns an eternal, spiritual deliverance. When Paul told the Philippian jailer what he must do to be saved, he was referring to the jailer’s eternal destiny (Acts 16:30-31). Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25).

What are we saved from? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, we are saved from “wrath,” that is, from God’s judgment of sin (Romans 5:91 Thessalonians 5:9). Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Biblical salvation refers to our deliverance from the consequence of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin.

Who does the saving? Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9Titus 3:5).

How does God save? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued us through Christ (John 3:17). Specifically, it was Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection that achieved our salvation (Romans 5:10Ephesians 1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Ephesians 2:58) and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).

How do we receive salvation? We are saved by faith. First, we must hear the gospel—the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13). Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ (Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-1013).

A definition of the Christian doctrine of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.” Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 14:6Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.

got questions.com Therefore, after death, a person resides in a “temporary” heaven or hell. After this temporary realm, at the final resurrection, a person’s eternal destiny will not change. The precise “location” of that eternal destiny is what changes. Believers will ultimately be granted entrance into the new heavens and new earth (Revelation 21:1). Unbelievers will ultimately be sent to the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15). These are the final, eternal destinations of all people—based entirely on whether or not they had trusted Jesus Christ alone for salvation (Matthew 25:46John 3:36).

What happens after death?

Question: “What happens after death?”

Answer: 
Within the Christian faith, there is a significant amount of confusion regarding what happens after death. Some hold that after death, everyone “sleeps” until the final judgment, after which everyone will be sent to heaven or hell. Others believe that at the moment of death, people are instantly judged and sent to their eternal destinations. Still others claim that when people die, their souls/spirits are sent to a “temporary” heaven or hell, to await the final resurrection, the final judgment, and then the finality of their eternal destination. So, what exactly does the Bible say happens after death?

First, for the believer in Jesus Christ, the Bible tells us that after death believers’ souls/spirits are taken to heaven, because their sins are forgiven by having received Christ as Savior (John 3:161836). For believers, death is to be “away from the body and at home with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6-8Philippians 1:23). However, passages such as 1 Corinthians 15:50-54 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 describe believers being resurrected and given glorified bodies. If believers go to be with Christ immediately after death, what is the purpose of this resurrection? It seems that while the souls/spirits of believers go to be with Christ immediately after death, the physical body remains in the grave “sleeping.” At the resurrection of believers, the physical body is resurrected, glorified, and then reunited with the soul/spirit. This reunited and glorified body-soul-spirit will be the possession of believers for eternity in the new heavens and new earth (Revelation 21-22).

Second, for those who do not receive Jesus Christ as Savior, death means everlasting punishment. However, similar to the destiny of believers, unbelievers also seem to be sent immediately to a temporary holding place, to await their final resurrection, judgment, and eternal destiny. Luke 16:22-23 describes a rich man being tormented immediately after death. Revelation 20:11-15 describes all the unbelieving dead being resurrected, judged at the great white throne, and then being cast into the lake of fire. Unbelievers, then, are not sent to hell (the lake of fire) immediately after death, but rather are in a temporary realm of judgment and condemnation. However, even though unbelievers are not instantly sent to the lake of fire, their immediate fate after death is not a pleasant one. The rich man cried out, “I am in agony in this fire” (Luke 16:24).

Therefore, after death, a person resides in a “temporary” heaven or hell. After this temporary realm, at the final resurrection, a person’s eternal destiny will not change. The precise “location” of that eternal destiny is what changes. Believers will ultimately be granted entrance into the new heavens and new earth (Revelation 21:1). Unbelievers will ultimately be sent to the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15). These are the final, eternal destinations of all people—based entirely on whether or not they had trusted Jesus Christ alone for salvation (Matthew 25:46John 3:36).
