"For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:30 kjv)

 

Dear Ones,

When I ask people how they get to heaven, the usual answer is "by being good."
"I'm a good person and God will take me up to Heaven." Is that what you think?

Yes No

Do you know the ten commandments? Yes No

If you do list just as many as you can?

Keeping the folowing verses in mind, would you say that a thought is a deed?

Yes No

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 kjv)
 
Now remembering that a thought is a deed take a look at the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:3-17)

And looking at Isaiah 64:6 be honest, does that make you a sinner who is not fit for Heaven, since God cannot look at sin? Yes No

1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."

Do you think Jesus thought of Himself as good? Yes No

Describe what He had to say about that?

Here is what He said in Matthew 19:17

What is going to happen to you on Judgment Day if the wages of sin is death and subsequent eternal hell?.

Human beings were originally meant to have eternal life with God. but the original parents of humanity disobeyed, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
( Romans 5:12 ) All of humanity was cursed and condemned to death. Is there a way out?

Yes No

If yes, what might that be?

Since the penalty for sin is death and eternal hell and animal sacrifices were only temporay remedies, what had to happen for us to receive a permanent remedy? Did someone have to take our sins upon Himself so we could be set free from sin?

Yes No

Could this person be just anyone since all humans are sinners. In other words can a person who is under this law of sin and death take our sins upon himself to give us eternal life with God? Yes No

Who is the only one who can take our sins away because He is not under the law of sin and death?

What did He have to do to set us free from this law?

Could He do it from Heaven? Yes No

Since the blood of animal sacrifices was sprinkled on sinners to cleanse them temporarily and God is a Spirit, Who has no blood, what had to happen?

If you had problems answering that, check: John 1:1 and John 1:14
 
Since God spoke to this in this manner, "the Word that was made flesh" in Matthew 3:17 was this flesh God Himself?
Yes No
 
If you marked "no" who was it?
 
Why was He the only One Whose blood would be sufficient for all the sins of the world? Was it because he was
100% human? Yes No or
100% Spirit? Yes No
or both? Yes No
 
If it was both, who is this person?
 
Why did the people wish to kill this human who had served them?
 
If you couldn't answer that question, check John 15:22-25

Can you imagine how hard it must have been for God to lay all sins of all huamn beings such as criminal acts, rape, murder, theft, physical and psychological abuse on innocent people, torture, drunkeness, deception, lies, evil speaking, taking God's name in vain, abortion, sexual sins, in fact all immorality, etc.. on the shoulders of His INNOCENT, SPOTLESS "only begotten Son" and then turn His back on Him because God cannot look upon sin. Jesus thought that God had forsaken Him before He gave up the Spirit. Does it make you feel like you want to add more sin to what has already transpired?

Yes No

Is there forgiveness for deliberate sin after a person has received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (born again) for which the penalty has been paid in full?
Yes No

Explain how the people got Jesus Christ's blood to flow unto the ground which saved mankind from death?

What did Jesus Christ accomplish when He offered His blood willingly for our redemption? He left us a new will. The old will was cancelled. What was the old will? Two words:

This grace, or forgiveness of sins, only applies to those who receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior because He literally purchased us and because of that we only need to repent (1. stop deliberately sinning by obeying the Word of God, 2) do the symbolic death and resurrection by immulating Christ's death and resurrection, by water baptism after we receive the Holy Spirit baptism.

NOW: "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. {note: atonement = 'At One Ment'}

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift.

For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:1-21)
