Posted on: 2 Comments

“Be reconciled to God” 2Corinthians 5:20. Why would the believers need reconciliation to God when they had already been reconciled to God through Christ? Romans 5:11

Stages of Reconciliation/Healing/Atonement

1. All of us have been infected by the virus of sin. Romans 3:23

2. In Christ we become a new creation. 2Corinthians5:14-17,Ephesians 1:3-13

3. It must be that as in Leviticus 16 & 23, there is a process to healing.

4. Christ’s one and only sacrificial death Hebrews 9:26, 28, has made complete provision to all who accept Him and have faith in Jesus. Romans 3:26. We will all be judged by how we treat others. Matthew 25:31-46.

Continuation of Relational Healing

5. Ongoing reconciliation/healing is a gift from God through Jesus Christ. 2Corinthians 5:17-19. Hebrews 9:12-15. James 1:17-18

6. Therefore relational healing is to be fostered not taken for granted Colossians 1:19-23. We are not once saved always saved!!

7. After all God can ONLY Justify those who have faith in Jesus Romans 3:26.

8. Would God be just if He were to justify those who do not have faith in Jesus? Romans 3:26.

What Christ Does In and for Us!!

9. He did for us what the law could not do. He lives inside us in order to fulfill the righteous requirement of the law in us. Romans 8:3-4.

10. He became our righteousness. “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD”. 1 Corinthians 1:30-31.

11. He has covered me with the garments of salvation. Isaiah 61:10. In fact, He has invited me to the Marriage Supper of The Lamb. Revelation 19:7-9, 13-14.

God’s Great Love Reconciles Us to Him!

12. Explain: God is love 1John 4:8. Why does God love me?

13. Nothing will ever separate us from God’s Love. Romans 8:35-39.

14. God is passionate about me!! I will allure her. Hosea 2:14-16, 19-23.

15. My heart churns within me Hosea 11:1-8. See Hosea 14:1, 4-5.

16. Why does God love me? You are mine Isaiah 43:1-5, 25.

17.. Has God forgotten me? I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Isaiah 49:14-16.

God wants to bring real healing to all making us like Him!!

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10.

What Happens to Our Sins?

Posted on: No Comments

Who is a God like You,
Pardoning iniquity
And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?

He does not retain His anger forever,
Because He delights in mercy.
He will again have compassion on us,
And will subdue our iniquities.

You will cast all our sins
Into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:18-19.

But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious,
Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. Psalms 86:15.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1John 1:9.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
Ephesians 3:20.

Shabbat Shalom

And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath. Mark 2:27-28.

4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.” There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. Hebrews 4:4-5,9.

Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them.
hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD your God.’ Ezekiel 20:12,20.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.

How Do I Know I Have Eternal life? Is It Really This Simple?

Here is the way I see it!! Is It Really This Simple?

68 But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.1John 5:11-13.

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:16-17.

4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:4-5.

Yes indeed, the conclusion is very simple!! It’s much easier to be saved than to be lost!! When I come to trust Jesus with my entire life, I have salvation right then and there, Present Tense!! And That’s It!!!

Now, To believe in Jesus, is also to simply trust Him completely with my life!! Period!!

Now how difficult is that? It is that simple!! We are the ones,with our own ideas, our own opinions that complicate Salvation. It is up to us to choose Jesus!! Period!! This is plainly what the Bible Teaches!!

Getting with Jesus and staying with Him is everything for the Christian. When I get to the point of simply choosing To Trust Jesus With My Life, then we will gladly choose to allow Jesus to have complete control, period.

Through The Holy Spirit, He will then come and abide “inside us” giving us His complete victory. He alone will transform us into His image(2Corinthians 3:18). He alone will make us just like Jesus. He alone will work out His victory inside us–Saving us!! We do not have to become anxious trying to save ourselves. Jesus will do that!!

Well that’s the way I see it!!

Now, How do you see it? Is there anything else we should be doing to make sure we have Salvation? How do the 10 commandments fit in? What part do the 10 commandments have in our Salvation if any? Please leave a post stating your understanding!! Your post will be very helpful to others!! Thank you very much!!

God Bless You As You Seek Jesus, Trusting Him Completely With Your Life!!!

28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31

3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

With an everlasting salvation;

Forever and ever. Isaiah 45:17.

1 “Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness,
You who seek the LORD:
Look to the rock from which you were hewn,
And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.
2 Look to Abraham your father,
And to Sarah who bore you;
For I called him alone,
And blessed him and increased him.”
3 For the LORD will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the LORD;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.
4 “ Listen to Me, My people;
And give ear to Me, O My nation:
For law will proceed from Me,
And I will make My justice rest
As a light of the peoples.

And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.

And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David. Isaiah 55:3.

There is no soundness in it,
But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores;
They have not been closed or bound up,
Or soothed with ointment. Isaiah 1:6.

And heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD. Jeremiah 30:17

Is there no physician there?
Why then is there no recovery
For the health of the daughter of my people? Jeremiah 8:22.

For You are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14.

And restore comforts to him
And to his mourners.
19 “ I create the fruit of the lips:
Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,”
Says the LORD,

“ And I will heal him.” Isaiah 57:18-19.

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jeremiah 29:11-14.

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.. Ephesians 2:4-8.
