Greetings!

I have a very important message to you…

God loves you!

 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

(John 3:16 KJV)

For God, the creator of the universe and all things that exist.

So love, the greatest degree.

The world, that means all people in the world, that includes you…

That He gave, that is the greatest act

His only begotten Son, that is the greatest gift

That Whosoever, that means Christ died for everyone…

Believeth in Him, that is the only condition to be saved.

Should not perish, God is not willing that any should perish in hell.

But have everlasting life.  That is life eternal, salvation.

 

There is no other greater gift that you can receive than the gift of eternal life. Without salvation, man would be lost forever in hell because of sin.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
— (Romans 3:23 KJV)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. — (Romans 6:23 KJV)

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? — (Mark 8:36 KJV)

Man cannot save himself by his own good works or efforts.

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
(Romans 3:10 KJV)

Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(Ephesians 2:9 KJV)

The only way to be saved is through faith in Jesus, that He died on the cross for our sins.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 KJV)

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV)

And He claimed to be the only way to the Father.  

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
(John 14:6 KJV)j

To be saved, receive Jesus by faith. 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
(John 6:47 KJV)

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
(John 1:12 KJV)

Do you believe in Jesus as personal Lord and Savior?

What is His promise to those who receive and believe in Him according to John 1: 12 and John 6:47? (See verse above)

A message from the Bible Correspondence Institute

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
(2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)

How to be saved….

 

Hell is real.  There are only two destinies that people go when they die, either they go to heaven or they go to hell.  The question is, if death will come into your life, do you know where will you go?

5

All men are sinners according to Romans 3: 23. The penalty for sin is death.  (Romans 6:23).  The Bible speaks of hell as the second death.   If you die without salvation, you would end up in hell.  You need salvation because you are a sinner.

Two new lessons made October 10, 2016

I would like to share to you two new lessons I made entitled, “THE WAGES OF SIN” and “WHY EVE FELL TO SIN”. I had a hard time coloring the latter because when i put a color to a certain area, the color would spread to other areas. I think its because after I’ve drawn it, I just took a picture of it from my cellphone and the quality of the picture is not good. So that early morning, I decided to post it without color. I finished the lesson about 1 am of October 11. Here is how the drawings look like without a color.

In the morning about 11 am, I scanned the drawing and colored it through windows paint. I got satisfied of the result. Here is the result:

Why Eve Fell to Sin

Have you experienced spiritual birth?

The term, “Born Again” has become so common today and many religious groups are using the words to name themselves.  Oftentimes, it is thought of as a religion or a name of a group.  However, born again has reference to having a relationship with Christ, not a name of a religious group.  Everyone is spiritually dead until  he is born of the Spirit.  Not all who uses the name “born again” are truly born again.   Continue reading

Have you received the Greatest Gift?

Hello Friend,

It has been a usual practice, to give and receive gifts from friends in this holiday season. I know that you have been expecting a surprise gift from someone. Perhaps, you are expecting a gift from your circle of friends, or maybe from an old friend, or somebody that you do not know. Don’t you know that someone is thinking of you today and he wants to give you the greatest gift that you can ever receive?

What great gifts could you ever think of? An expensive piece of jewelry? A house and lot? A car? You may have all these things, but you will not own them forever. According to the Scriptures, Job said, “…Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”(Job 1:21). Paul said, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.”(1Tim. 6:7). If you have not received yet the greatest gift, and death will overtake you, you will forever be a loser. Jesus said, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
(Mar 8:36)

My friend, you must realize that you have a soul and such cannot be fed nor be satisfied with material things. God’s word is the food for our souls. Jesus said, “… It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Mat 4:4). If you do not feel hunger for God’s word, it is because of the consequence of sin. All men are sinners and the penalty of sin is death (Rom.3: 23; 6:23). The Bible states, “But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth” (1Tim. 5:6).

Paul described the sinners with a statement, “There is none righteous, no not one. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God” (Romans 3: 10-11). However, God loves all men and He sent Jesus to die for our sins. Rom.5: 8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. Jesus is the heavenly Father’s greatest gift for without Him, there can be no salvation. He paid the great price for our salvation. Hebrews 9: 22 says, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission”.

Jesus is the true source of life. The Bible says, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). He came to give you life eternal and abundant. Jesus said, “… I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10). Eternal salvation is God’s greatest gift. Romans 6: 23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

How can it be possible for sinners to receive eternal life? When you hear the good news that Christ died for your sins, was buried, and raised from the grave, and under conviction of the Holy Spirit, you humble yourself and admit that you are a lost sinner, you repent of your sins, and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior, then you obtain eternal life. (Romans 1: 16; John 16: 8). Jesus said in John 5: 24, “Verily, verily I say unto you, He that heareth my word and believeth on him that sent me hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life”.

Would you like to receive the greatest gift? Repent of your sins and trust in Jesus as your Lord and Savior. (Luke 13:3). He said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” (John 6:47)

Death is certain and may come anytime. Tomorrow might be too late. (Read Heb.9: 27; Prov.27:1). Receive Jesus by faith today (Eph.2:8-9).

Truly yours,
Concerned Christian
