Believe-To expect or hope with confidence; to trust.
Many need to open their heart and believe, you absolutely do not believe with your mind, you believe with your heart.
You learn with your mind, and you believe your heart, the decision to believe is totally an action of the human will, everybody has one.
It is this organ of the Soul that needs to be made to act.
The Bible says if you CHOOSE not to believe on The Lord Jesus Christ you will die in your sins……
Joh 8:24 That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I AM who I claim to be, you will die in your sins.”
I will go one a little further, if you choose to do nothing, the default is the same as not choosing Jesus….let’s go to the scriptures…..
Joh 3:18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in Him. But anyone who does not believe in Him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.
Joh 3:19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.
Joh 3:20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.
Joh 3:21 But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants. ”
The truth of the matter is that God already knows what you are doing and how you are living, you cannot Escape or hide anything from God because God is Omnipresent (Everywhere), Omnipotent (All Powerful) and Omniscient (Having Universal Knowledge).
What people do not understand is that they were born into iniquity…….unrighteousness.
You were born in a fallen state…….Psa 51:5 For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.
Because we were born into the world that way, we cannot die that way, we must have our fallen state reversed……..now let’s go to the scripture and see how to reverse it…….
This is The Who……
Joh 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
Joh 3:17 God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him.
This is The How, which is your part…..Rom 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
Now is the Time.
