Salvation

 

What does “to be saved” mean to you?

What does it mean to the One Who has the final word on your salvation?

God has said those who do not receive His forgiveness and victory over death (provided only through His Son, Jesus Christ) will suffer eternal life in the Lake of Fire.  God has provided a way out of this cursed state by coming to earth as a man.  You see, Jesus Christ is not only Creator of all things, He is also the only means through which one can avoid what God has decreed in His plan for mankind.  For those who do not receive His reconciling act of love (“reconcile” means to make right, in this case, concerning relationship with God through the Person and Sacrifice of Jesus Christ):  eternal death in separation from the God of glory; God of grace.* 

You can curse God for this divine plan and persist in your rejection of His love, or, if you’re wanting out of the bondage of satan (it’s “either/or” … as Christ Jesus said, “… you are either for Me or against Me”), you can receive God’s glorious salvation from eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire by accepting Him as the Creator of all things, the eternally existent One with the Father, the only God/man in human history, and yes, the only provision whereby one can enter into God’s glorious presence.  Other religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and the Christian cults (e.g., Jehovah’s Witnesses; Mormons/LDS) do not exalt Jesus Christ as He truly is.  There is indeed no other name under heaven whereby we can be saved.   Or, as the Lord of Righteousness has Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  (see John 14:6; NKJV)

Please discern the limitation of “opinion.”  Your opinion concerning Jesus Christ and the salvation He alone offers is only that:  opinion.  But God Himself has revealed His Truths to us concerning Who, in reality, Jesus Christ is.  The revelation is in the Bible.  Contrary to the appeal of the many satan-bound skeptics who reject the historical Christ, God is in Jesus Christ reconciling the world.  It really is His way or the highway (to eternal separation from God in the Lake of Fire).  These are not our words but His. Take us out of the picture and you still have the same message of eternal Hope in the Word of God.  Once again, the choice is yours.  Please accept God’s only provision for forgiveness of sin and His only means of overcoming eternal death.
