Do You Know?
Do you know that sin and spiritual death passed upon all humanity when Adam the first man disobeyed God by eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The scriptures say that all have sinned and come short of the glory of
God therefore was not willing for his creation of humanity to perish, so he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to earth to bring salvation to a lost humanity.
The scripture says also there is none righteous, no, not one.
Jesus was born into the world and declared his mission from God by saying, “I have come to seek and save the lost.”
During his mission of 3 and a half years he saved all those who came to him in repentance and faith. He also healed the sick, brought hope to the hopeless and established the church.
All those then and now are saved by him by repentance and faith. Those who lived before his coming were saved who believed on him through the prophets.
Before Jesus went back to heaven after his atonement for our sins, he commissioned his apostles and Christians to go inot the world and preach the gospel about him and God's offer of salvation.
The truth now is that those who do not believe in Jesus will be condemned, but they are condemned already.
John's gospel declares, whoever believes in him is not condemened, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only son.
It is imperative that one believes God's message and have the promise of heaven. If not, the future has only eternity in Hell.
Hopefully, all who reads this will take the information seriously and act upon it.
