These things I have
written to you who
believe in the
name of the
Son of God, so that
you may know that you
have eternal life.
|REALIZE THAT NO ONE IS GOOD ENOUGH TO GO TO HEAVEN|
|As it is written, “There is none righteous, not even
|SEE YOURSELF AS A SINNER|
|… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of
|UNDERSTAND WHERE SIN CAME FROM|
|Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into
the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men,
because all sinned.
|NOTICE GOD’S PENALTY FOR SIN|
|For what one earns from sin is death; but eternal
life is what one receives as a free gift from God, in union with the
Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.
|REALIZE THAT MASHIACH (CHRIST) DIED FOR YOU|
|But God demonstrates His own love for
us in that the Messiah died on our behalf while we were yet sinners.
|TAKE God AT HIS WORD|
|Everyone who calls on the name of ADONAI will be saved.
Take God at His word, and claim His promise for your Eternal Life today!
For what does the Tanakh say?
“Avraham put his trust in God, and it was
credited to his account as righteousness”
“Trust in the Lord Yeshua,
and you will be saved, …”
The promises of the Bible are pretty incredible. So incredible, in fact, that even most religious people either don’t understand or don’t believe them. That’s simply because most religious people fail to recognize a terribly important fact: True Biblical Faith is not a religion.
Yes, you read that correctly. I said, “True Biblical Faith is not a religion.” All of the religions in the world (including many “Christian denominations”) have one thing in common. They are all about one thing: “What can I do so God (or the gods) won’t be angry and punish me?”
That is exactly why I say that true Biblical Faith is not a religion. True Biblical Faith, when correctly understood, is not about what we can do for God, but rather it is all about how much God loves us, how much He has done for us, and how we respond to His great love.
Here is how it works: it was through one individual that sin entered the world, and through sin, death; and in this way death passed through to the whole human race, inasmuch as everyone sinned. (Romans 5:12)
… all have sinned, and come short of earning
We all, like sheep, went astray; we turned, each one, to his own way; yet ADONAI (God) laid on Him (Yeshua) the guilt of all of us. (Isaiah 53:6)
But God demonstrates His own love for us in that the Messiah died on our behalf while we were yet sinners. (Romans 5:8)
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged ; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18)
For what one earns from sin is death; but eternal life is what one receives as a free gift from God, in union with the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. (John 3:16-17)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in Him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed. (John 3:16)
Everyone who calls on the name of ADONAI will be delivered.
For what does the Tanakh say? “Avraham put his trust in God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness” (Romans 4:3)
“Trust in the Lord Yeshua, and you will be saved, …” (Acts 16:31a)
What, then, does it say? “The
word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”— that is, the word
about trust which we proclaim, namely, that if you acknowledge publicly
with your mouth that Yeshua) is Lord (ADONAI) and trust in your heart
that God raised Him from the dead, you will be delivered. For with the
heart one goes on trusting and thus continues toward righteousness,
while with the mouth one keeps on making public acknowledgement and
thus continues toward deliverance. For the passage quoted says that
everyone who rests his trust on Him will not be humiliated. (Romans
But this is precisely why I received mercy—so that in me, as the number one sinner, Yeshua the Messiah might demonstrate how very patient He is, as an example to those who would later come to trust in Him and thereby have eternal life. (1 Timothy 1:16)
And without trusting, it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches Him must trust that He does exist and that He becomes a Rewarder to those who seek Him out. (Messianic Jews [Hebrews] 11:6)
Rejoice in this, even though for a little while you may have to experience grief in various trials. Even gold is tested for genuineness in fire. The purpose of these trials is so that your trust’s genuineness, which is far more valuable than perishable gold, will be judged worthy of praise, glory, and honor at the revealing of Yeshua the Messiah. Without having seen Him, you love Him. Without seeing Him now, but trusting in Him, you continue to be full of the joy that is glorious beyond words. And you are receiving what your trust is aiming at, namely, your deliverance. (1 Kefa [Peter] 1:6-9)
I have written you these things so that you may know that you have eternal life—you who keep trusting in the Person and power of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13)
Yeshua said: “If you love Me, you will keep My
commandments.” (John 14:15)
Yeshua said: “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.” (John 15:10)
So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot (commandments) and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 5:19)
And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good ? There is only One who is good ; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” (Matthew 19:17)
“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.” (John 14:21)
If you believe right now with all your heart that Yeshua of Nazareth [Jesus] is Israel’s Messiah, the eternal Son of God (ADONAI Himself come in the flesh), and that He loved you so very much that He offered Himself as the perfect and complete sacrifice for the payment of your entire debt of sin (all your sin—past, present, and future), then you will trust Him (and Him alone) to save you from the wrath of God and give you the free gift of eternal life. This kind of belief does not mean a simple acknowledgement of the historical fact of the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua, but a complete and absolute trust in the fact that He is exactly who He claims to be — the God of the Bible come in the flesh — to the extent that you rest your fate for all eternity solely upon His person, His word, and His completed work of redemption on your behalf!
If this is true of you, then you can
know with absolute certainty that right now — not some day in the future,
but this very minute — you have, as your permanent possession,
How can I say that with such certainty? Because Yeshua HaMashiach [Jesus the Messiah] said it, Yeshua HaMashiach is God [ADONAI, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob] Who has come in the flesh, and God cannot lie. Just look at the promise from Yeshua’s own lips: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in Him Him may have eternal life …” (John 3:16).
Now ask yourself this simple question: “How long does eternal life last?” Ten minutes? Twenty years? Until the next time I sin? Until my faith waivers? Until I stop believing? Until I get tired of being a Believer and decide to quit? Until I decide give the gift back to God?
My dear friend, listen to me very carefully! If at any single instant of your life you have eternal life, and any time after that very instant you no longer have have eternal life, the only possible explanation is that somehow your eternal life came to an end — that which was eternal ceased to be eternal — an absolute impossibility! Anything that is eternal can never end, and anything that can ever end was never eternal in the first place! Don’t let anybody deceive you: the only way that it is possible for you to ever lose your eternal life is if you never had it! [MORE]
Yeshua said that if would trust Him as
your Savior you would have eternal life. Satan said, “Has God really said
…?” (Genesis 3:1) Who are you going to trust, Satan or
