Unless a man is regenerated,
Regenerated-Renewed; born again.
He or She cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven without being born again.
If this is you and you know that it is you, I want you to understand something very profound.
Just because you do not believe, does not mean that the Word of God is not true.
Any person that lives outside of the will and knowledge of God, his or her mind is subject to the fiery darts of the devil, here is the proof…….2Co 4:4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.
You have no proof that God’s Word is not true, but you are living proof that you did not look into it to find out.
How? Because your life has no peace in it, it is full of uncertainty and fear.
If you will open your heart and read and learn of God and Jesus Christ you will find out that the things that you thought and held on to was not true at all.
Someone sold us a bag of lies and we believed it, we went on about our business believing the lie of the devil, you are no better off than you were 10 years ago when you first heard and believe those lies about God. I know, because at one point in my life, I too believed those same lies that are still circulating in people’s minds that do not know God. My life never got better, it only got worse.
The bible says……Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Joh 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
If the bible says that Jesus is The Good Shepherd, why not take Jesus at his Word and give him a try.
You have been believing a lie all this time, why not believe the Truth for a change and see what it does for you.
Let’s start here….open your heart an believe these words……Joh 3:16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
Joh 3:17 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.
Jesus gave his life for your sins and mine, we cannot take those sins to the grave because if we do, we will have to pay the price ourselves.
Jesus already paid the price, all we need to do is exchanged our sins by asking God to forgive us and accept Jesus into our hearts as Our Personal Lord and Savior.
The bible says…..2Co 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
Jesus came to the earth just for that reason, because he loved mankind so much, God sent himself in his Own Son to redeem man back to himself.
No one else was able to accomplish this except Jesus, and he did it, he was bruised, beaten and laughed at, humiliated and scorned, he spat on, he did all of this and more, so that you do not have too.
While he was in the Cross, God had to take his soul and spirit and SMITE it with The Sins of Mankind, a every sin was put on Jesus’s Soul the bible says in……
2Co 5:21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].
This is why Salvation is a Free Gift From God, you cannot purchase it, Jesus already has, all you do is believe and receive it with your heart.
