Surely you are not oblivious to the evil that dominates the world today. Natural disasters, wars, murders, other wicked acts of human beings against each other and many more. You will agree that things are not getting better but worse and worse everyday. Everybody is searching for a solution. I am sorry to inform you, no matter what anybody has told you, there is no solution. The world system has been programmed to fail. The world has we know it shall soon meet its inevitable end.
In the begining…
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness Genesis 1:26a (KJV).
God created us for companionship and fellowship. He created you to bring ultimate glory to himself while you enjoy his unending love. However, as you may know, the devil wasn’t too happy about this. He is the greatest enemy of God. He wanted to overthrow God but God threw him out of heaven. He is filled with anger (Revelation 12:12). Since he couldn’t get to God, the next thing he did was go after what God loved.
This sabbotage resulted in sin. Sin is the way of the devil and God HATES sin. When Adam and Eve sinned, God had to drive to them out of his presence because he just couldn’t stand sin. However, God being all-knowing had already prepared a way out from the foundation of the earth (Revelation 13:8)
The action plan
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)
The punishment for sin is death and hell (Romans 6:23). Hell is real and terrible. Only the pure and precious blood of God’s only son Jesus is able to redeem human beings from hell. So He sent that precious son here on earth so that he could dwell among us as a sinless man and die on the cross as the lamb of God bearing ALL our sins.
It is finished
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13 (NIV)[/note]
Jesus went upon the cross to die in the most painful and disgraceful way possible at that time. He was mocked by the people he came to save, accused of crimes he never comitted and seperated from his father. Just so that he could save YOU from God’s wrath and so that you could enjoy eternal life. What great love!
It didn’t just end there
For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. Romans 14:9 (KJV)
However, death couldn’t hold him in the grave. Jesus rose again from the dead on the third day. Hallelujah! Now he is back in heaven preparing a place for all those who love him and receive him. No matter what you have heard, Jesus IS the ONLY way to God and a joyous eternal life. All those who reject Jesus as the only way will have a space in hell and they will suffer forever.
Jesus offers you eternal peace, love and joy in the presence of the father. All you need to do is receive him and let him be LORD in your life.
