Acts 15:1 and 24, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.” ...“Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:”
I love this simple passage of Scripture. A group of unsaved men came down from the mountains to Jerusalem preaching a counterfeit gospel which requires people to keep the law (i.e., turn away from their sins) to be saved. What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” God's Old Testament law gives all humanity the KNOWLEDGE OF SIN. The Apostle Paul said in Romans 7:13b, “that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” The law gave the world a guilty conscience!!! Could that be why the world hates the Jews so much? God through Israel gave the law to the world, and therefore, guilt. John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” Jesus is the Living Word (John 1:1-3 and 14, Revelation 19:13); the Bible is the Written Word (Matthew 4:4; Hebrews 4:12).
Dear reader, there is only way way to Heaven, which is through childlike faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is easy! I am listening to a wonderful sermon right now by Pastor Steven Anderson called: 'SALVATION IS EASY.' If that link goes dead (and YouTube will censor it eventually), you can hear the MP3 here). It is sad that Bible preaching by God's man is being censored and removed from YouTube; while sodomites, feminists and abortionists have complete freedom of speech. God sees that horrible injustice!!! In this sin-sick world today, good is called bad and bad is called good. Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” This is the Luciferian New World Order cabalist M.O. (Method of Operation). Professor Henry Makow rightly describes this Cabalist M.O:
- Destroy while convincing you that it's for your own good. Destroy the economy. It's for your own good.
- Convince women to squander their most fertile years pursuing career and free sex because it's "empowering."
- Convince western nations to destroy their racial and cultural heritage because, "Diversity is our Strength."
- Destroy gender identity and promote homosexual dysfunction to children in the name of tolerance. "Love is Love." It's "progressive."
- Cabalists create false reality to suit their perversion. That's why they own the mass media. It's their Black Magick.
- The scamdemic is part of a larger pattern. We are under occult assault. READ MORE
Satan is the god of this world and he has everything backwards nowadays. Instead of having one Holy Bible, we've got literally hundreds of English versions to choose from. That is Satan's doing, not God (1st Corinthians 14:33). The Devil has young people confused about their gender. God created every human being as either male or female, nothing in between!!! God doesn't make mistakes. If you live next to a leaking nuclear reactor, or are the victim of mad scientists tampering with life, that is not God's fault. Don't blame God for man's evil and incompetence!!!
Likewise, the Devil has most people confused about how to get to Heaven. I triple-dog dare you to go on the internet and find out what singer Amy Grant believes about salvation. Good luck, because you won't find anything! Miss Grant is a horrible role model to younger women. Like nearly all other celebrities in these ungodly times, Amy Grant dares not offend the sodomite community, so she twists the Word of God around to say that God welcomes homosexuals as much as anyone into His love.
Although it is true that God loves everyone, and God will save the vilest sinner who trusts in Jesus Christ as Savior, it is also true that God will NEVER accept the person of the wicked!!! Homosexuality is a horrible sin which God will NEVER accept. No homosexual can be completely right with God as long as they commit such a wicked sin, but God WILL save them regardless if they place their trust in Jesus Christ. Yes, a practicing homosexual CAN be eternally saved and know it right away. That is because forgiveness of sin and eternal life is a free gift from God, which Christ paid for on the cross with His blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). Anyone who receives Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for their sins is saved.
Salvation is easy!!! Getting saved is as easy as going through a door (John 10:1). Getting saved is as easy as drinking some water. John 4:13-15, “Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.” Getting saved is as easy as eating a piece of bread (John 6:32-35).
Dear friend, you are not saved unless you are wholly trusting Jesus. If you think that salvation can be lost you are not saved. It is because you foolishly think there is something that you must do to stay saved, or maintain your status of being saved, or to prove that your faith is genuine. If you think any of those things you are not saved!!! Only those who completely REST wholly in Jesus' precious name are saved. ...
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
I was saved at age 13 long ago. I am now 54 years young...lol. I have been a child of God for 41 years. I have never thought for one second that I must do something to make sure that I'm really saved. I have never tried to live above sin (as Steve Pettit wickedly peaches at Bob Jones University) to prove that I am really saved. Such thinking is of the Devil. Calvinists like Ray Comfort, Steve Pettit, Gary Walton, Paul Washer, Chuck Phelps, Marty Herron and John MacArthur cause people to needlessly live in uncertainty, fear and worry. These wicked false teachers all tell people that they must turn away from sinful ways to be saved, or to prove that their faith is genuine. The proof that my faith is genuine in God's sight is my FAITH itself!!!
The Apostle James speaks about being justified in the sight of men in James 2:18-21, not God; but the Apostle Paul speaks about being justified in the sight of God by faith alone in Romans 4:1-6. Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan, made this very helpful statement:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)
Amen brother! Amen!!! I couldn't have said it any better. Wow! John Bunyan was eloquent with his words. What a great statement! Getting saved is free, simple and easy. A lot of people would get saved today if they just knew how simple it really is to be saved. Most people think it is harder than it is to get to Heaven. Corrupt Bible colleges and apostate churches complicate God's plan of salvation, making salvation much harder than it truly is. Jesus said that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light (Matthew 11:29-30). There is nothing light or easy about having to give up your sinful ways to receive God's free gift. How could it be a gift if you must exchange your sinful bad habits to get it? Obviously it couldn't, because you are being asked to give up something to get it!!! Beware of lying preachers!!! God's gift of eternal life is unconditional. You just need to know what you're being saved from. You must know that you're a guilty sinner and the penalty for those sins is eternal punishment in Hell fire (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:8).
You're not saved unless wholly trusting in Jesus' name. Please don't add water baptism, because if you do you won't be allowed into Heaven. Please don't follow the demonic Church of Christ (COC) like singer Amy Grant does, because if you do you won't be allowed into Heaven. COC falsely requires that you repent of all your sins, make public confession of Christ and partake of water baptism. None of those three things are necessary to get to Heaven. The Apostle Peter was ashamed of Christ, even denying Him three times and cursing His name. Many of the chief rulers were saved, but refused to publicly confess Christ for fear of persecution (John 12:42-43). No one in the Old Testament was water baptized, yet Acts 10:43 says they were all saved through faith in Christ. The only thing that you must do to get to Heaven is BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31).
