All those that believe in HIM will not perish but have eternal life.
All are HIS that LORD gives HIM!! All will be raised up that believe in HIM, and will have eternal life.
Love the LORD with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
26 Jesus answered: In all truth I tell you, you are looking for me not because you have seen the signs but because you had all the bread you wanted to eat.
27 Do not work for food that goes bad, but work for food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of man will give you, for on him the Father, God himself, has set his seal.
28 Then they said to him, 'What must we do if we are to carry out God's work?'
29 Jesus gave them this answer, 'This is carrying out God's work: you must believe in the one he has sent.'
30 So they said, 'What sign will you yourself do, the sight of which will make us believe in you? What work will you do?
31 Our fathers ate manna in the desert; as scripture says: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'
32 Jesus answered them: In all truth I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, it is my Father who gives you the bread from heaven, the true bread;
33 for the bread of God is the bread which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
34 'Sir,' they said, 'give us that bread always.'
35 Jesus answered them: I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
36 But, as I have told you, you can see me and still you do not believe.
37 Everyone whom the Father gives me will come to me; I will certainly not reject anyone who comes to me,
38 because I have come from heaven, not to do my own will, but to do the will of him who sent me.
39 Now the will of him who sent me is that I should lose nothing of all that he has given to me, but that I should raise it up on the last day.
40 It is my Father's will that whoever sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and that I should raise that person up on the last day.
GOD BLESS US ALL,
Just what I needed to hear this morning! Thank you (and our God).
I’m all in.
And He will change us so that we can truly know Him, be redeemed and changed into His image, and ultimately have the same incredible eternal body as His. This truly is GOOD NEWS for men. It's what man has been searching for. That knowledge of who God truly is and to have peace with Him but the truth has been twisted in such silly ignorant manmade ways.
More is required than just belief. The second chapter of James outlines the relationship between faith and works. Basically you cannot have a good standing before God merely by professing belief, without acting in harmony with that belief.
AMEN! You’re welcome, and so pleased to see the thanks to our GOD that you wrote as well. As HE is worthy of all thanks and praise!! AMEN! AMEN!!
James 2:24 - “You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.”
Quotation from Charles Clough, Bible Framework series:
“Although the genuine believer has receive assurance internally, the presence of saving faith can be seen externally only through his words and deeds. This point is made in the epistle of James where Abraham is discussed. Interested in showing faith to outside observers, James says Abraham was justified by works when he offered Isaac as a sacrifice in Genesis 22 (Jas. 2:17-23).
“Critics of the Bible love this passage, thinking here they can cite a contradiction between how Paul speaks of justification by faith without works and how James speaks of justification by works since each author is talking about Abraham.
“They often fail to note the obvious fact that Paul uses Genesis 15 at the beginning of Abraham’s belief whereas James uses Genesis 22 much later in Abraham’s life.
“In Genesis 15 Abraham was justified before God (cf. Rom. 4:2,17); in Genesis 22 Abraham was justified before man (cf. Jas. 2:18 “show me”).”
The Gospel of Eternal Salvation
The Bible is clear that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who died on the cross as our substitute. He paid the penalty for our sins. He took the punishment that we deserve.
Gods provision of salvation is a free gift (Eph. 2:8,9). God, through Jesus Christ, did everything. All you do is accept that free gift. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
How to be saved (how to receive the free gift of eternal salvation):
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVES in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He who BELIEVES on him is not condemned: but he who does not BELIEVE is condemned already, because he has not BELIEVED in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
But to the one who does not work, but BELIEVES in Him who justifies the ungodly, his FAITH is reckoned as righteousness
Therefore being justified by FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by FAITH without the deeds of the law
Then they asked him, What must we do to do the works God requires?
Jesus answered, The work of God is this: to BELIEVE in the one he has sent.
(Jesus Christ said) He who BELIEVES in me has everlasting life.
BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved
Every one who BELIEVES in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.
(Jesus Christ said) I am the resurrection and the life. He who BELIEVES in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and BELIEVES in me will never die. Do you BELIEVE this?
One who truly believes will follow with faith and works.
To believe in CHRIST is to try to do all HE commands.
GOD BLESS US ALL,
