REALLY GOOD NEWS AND SOME REALLY BAD NEWS!!

REALLY GOOD NEWS AND SOME REALLY BAD NEWS!!

“He that believes on the Son of God has everlasting life:  and he that does not believe on the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him” John 3:36.  {First the Good News, then the bad news”

1).  God’s Love & Gift – He loves you & has made available the gift of eternal life.  “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Rom. 6:23b & John 3:16. 2).
2).  The Gospel is – “Christ died (to pay the penalty) for our sins, He was buried, and rose again the third day, according to the scriptures,” I Cor. 15:3,4.
3). What must you do to receive the gift of eternal life and be saved,”  “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved,” Acts 16:30,31.  (This includes turning from sin and trusting Christ alone for salvation – “Repent and believe the Gospel,” Mark 1:15)

 ??s “4” “U” – Have YOU trusted Christ alone as your personal Savior?  “By grace you are saved by faith, not by works of righteousness which you have done,” Eph. 2:8.  If yes: Are there signs of spiritual life “see-able” or “hear-able” in your life?  {signs like a desire to know God & His Word, obedience to it, a desire to tell others about Jesus, or to be with other believers in Him}  II Cor. 13:5a “Examine yourself, whether you are in the faith.”  Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them,” Matt. 7:20,21.  If you have not trusted Him, why not?  “now is the day of salvation,” II Cor. 6:2.  Tomorrow may be too late!!

     Now the Really BAD NEWS – (Most people do not really believe this – Matt. 7:13,14)

1).  About you, me and everybody else – “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” Rom. 3:23.  “Your iniquities have separated between you and your God,” Isa. 59:2.   “There is not a just man upon the earth, that does good and does not sin, Eccl. 7:20
2).  About God – He “will by no means clear the guilty,” Ex.34:7. “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Rom. 6:23.
3). About doing good works to earn the free gift of Heaven – (no one, no one can earn the gift of Heaven) “Not by works of righteousness which we have done,” Titus 3:5 and “For by grace are you saved by faith: and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man (or woman) should boast.”  Ephesians 2:8,9.
4). About the severe Penalty of Unbelief – “He that believeth not (on Christ the Son) is condemned already,” and “The wrath of God abides on him””,” John 3:18 & 36.  A rich man (an unbeliever) died, was buried, and woke up in Hell “being in torments….cried out and said….I am tormented in this flame,” Luke 16:22-24.  “the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night” Rev. 14:11.

###Please understand that I am not sharing these truths from God’s Word to be harsh, mean or condemnatory!!  I share them out of a genuine concern for your spiritual life and your eternal joy and well-being!!!  Heaven & Hell are both real, eternal places!!

My plea to you – (if you have not done so already)  PRAY, TRUST CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND PREPARE FOR ETERNITY!  DON’T REJECT HIM TO THE END AND DESPAIR FOR ETERNITY (TODAY)!
