YOU ARE SINLESS IN JESUS
Nov 06, 2011
God the Father is Awesome! We just have not realized before how awesome He really is. When you have ALL power in heaven and earth you can do things as an act of God humans can not comprehend. Such is the Gospel or Good News.
In Gen.1:26-27, the Great Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit simply said "lets make a family of humans after our likeness." "We want them, we choose them in our power, and we will love them forever. As far as we are concerned, this is a done deal with no exceptions. Sin will not nullify what our plan is. Jesus will make it so and make it happen for all and take care of the sin situation for everyone."
So, when we read in John 1:29, "... behold Jesus who takes AWAY the sin of the world." Do we believe it? It is so! In Rom.3:23 and Rom.6:23 , that all have sinned and that the wages of sin is Death, but the gift of God is Eternal Life in Jesus Christ....FOR EVERYONE. Do we believe it?
In Luke 19:10, Jesus said he came to seek and to SAVE what was lost. Did He? And can we believe it?
We are so infected with Greek Philosophy with its REWARD and PUNISHMENT theology, and with a concept of an ever burning and torturing Hell fire that it is nearly impossible for us to see a loving Father who wants to live with all of us forever, and has made it a reality in Jesus Christ's life, death, resurrection and ascension for all humans.
Are we, you, really made righteous in Jesus? Rom.5:18. Are you really made alive in Jesus Christ? ICor.15:22 ? Do you belive God loves YOU? John 3:16. Do you believe that The Father loves you as much as He does Jesus Christ? He does. John 17:23.
Salvation is a done deal for everyone. Many, most, will find this out after death. But it is still Salvation. The gates of the Holy City will forever remain open for sinners to repent and come in. Rev. 21 and Rev.22. The Father is eternally patient. And as Rob Bell says, " Love Wins."
Forget any idea or concept of any kind of fire of torture in hell, an idea coming from the pagan minds of ancient cultures. It simply DOES NOT EXIST. Not my idea, just do your own study. And happy studying.
