Redemption: What is God’s plan for human beings?

Let is ALL never forget why God sent his only begotten Son, Jesus to this earth for “a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel” (Luke 2:32).

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:23-24).

Jesus, our Lord, Savior and King appointed the Apostle Paul to be the apostle to the Gentiles who said: “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office” (Romans 11:13).

Paul explained God’s redemption or salvation plan for human beings when he said: “For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:21-24).

Redemption written on desert road

God only is Good:

Jesus says: “There is none good but one, that is, God:” (Matthew 19:17).

“TRULY God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart” (Psalm 73:1).

“NOW the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer” (1 Timothy 4:1-5).

Human beings – Good Seed versus evil seed:

Notwithstanding the fact that there are over 7 billion people now on this earth, since the beginning of time, through every generation, there are only two categories of people:

(1) Children of God: “Children of the Highest” (Luke 17:35); “Children of Light” (John 12:16).

(2) children of the devil: “children of wickedness” (2 Samuel 7:10); “children of transgression, a seed of falsehood” (Isaiah 57:4); “Children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2).

“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous” (1 John 3:10-12).

On the Last Day, the Day of Judgment only the Good Seed will be SAVED!

Jesus explains: “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father” (Matthew 13:37–43).

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:7–8).

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:26).

Seventh Seal – Seven Angels – Seven Trumpets:

This is the count down to the End! Before it is too late accept Jesus while it is still called today! Jesus comes on the sound of the Last trumpet (Matthew 24:30) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) (1 Corinthians 15:52–55).

“AND when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!” (Revelation 8:1-13).

Day of Judgment: Good versus evil?

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God” (Romans 13:1).

“Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation” (Romans 13:2).

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22).

“Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:6-11).
Emergence

Good vs. Evil or Eternal Life vs. everlasting punishment?

These are the key choices in our lifetime.

“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3).

“Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore” (Psalm 37:27).

“For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:35-36).

“They that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honor” (Proverbs 21:21).

“Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life” (1 Timothy 6:19).

LIVE:

Do you know that LIVE spelt backwards is EVIL?

Every human being would be wise to remember these words, and to do as the Holy Scriptures says: “Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore” (Psalm 37:27).

“For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the LORD God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye” (Ezekiel 18:32).

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil” (Proverbs 16:6).

“Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil” (Proverbs 4:25-27).

“The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul” ( Proverbs 16:17).

Empty Highway With A Cross

Repentance:

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent” (Numbers 23:19).

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent. Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:29-31).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God: “…that man whom he hath ordained…” says: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “…except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Redemption

Believe in God?

To this day, many people still only say: “I believe in God.” But, it is not enough to believe in God. James, the brother of Jesus, put this into perspective when he said, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” (James 2:19).

To believe in God we must also believe in the Word of God.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God” (John 1:1–2). “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

The Word of God, made flesh and full of grace and truth, is the only begotten Son of God: JESUS.

If we do not believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, then we do not believe in the Word of God. Hence, we do not believe God.

Jesus expressed to unbelievers in his time here on earth, said: “Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son” (1 John 2:22).

“Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father” (1 John 2:23). “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God” (1 John 4:15).

Glowing word God

God:

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

“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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).
