GOD sent JESUS to be the propitiation for the sins of the world (John 1:29) (1 John 2:2).

“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” (John 3:16-17).

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10).

On the night before the day of his crucifixion, Jesus was very troubled in the last hours the of his mission to complete as commanded by his Father (John 3:16-18, 6:38).

Jesus said: “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour” (John 12:27).

Jesus knew that the time had come to fulfil his purpose, but as a human being would have, he had difficulties facing this reality. However, he knew that it had to be done, as the entire survival of humankind rested on the successful completion of the mission which his Father sent him to accomplish.

In spite of the fact that Jesus knew the time had come, on the night before, he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and was very heavy and sorrowful in his heart (Matthew 26:37). Jesus said to them, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me” (Matthew 26:38), and he went to pray three times to his Father.

Jesus knew the time had come to fulfil the word of God, the will of his Father who sent him to be the propitiation for the sins of the world (John 1:29) (1 John 2:2, 4:10).

“For there is [ONE GOD, AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS: WHO GAVE HIMSELF A RANSOM FOR ALL], to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

On the next day, Jesus was crucified and died for all humankind.

PRAY DAILY to our FATHER in HEAVEN.

Jesus, the only begotten Son of the FATHER (John 1:14), says: “When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:6).

“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).

Jesus taught us to pray saying: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD]. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

DAY OF JUDGMENT: Who can be S A V E D?

When Jesus returns to earth in the glory of his Father with all holy angels there will be a harvest of the earth (Matthew 13:37–43) (Matthew 25:31).

“For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause [RIGHTEOUSNESS] and praise to spring forth before all the nations” (Isaiah 61:11).

Jesus says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

Jesus’ disciple Peter warned saying: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? [AND IF THE RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED], where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:17-18).

Jesus’ disciples asked: “[WHO THEN CAN BE SAVED]?’ and Jesus answered them saying: “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:25-26).
“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, 17-18).

Jesus says: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME HATH EVERLASTING LIFE]. I am that bread of life” (John 6:47-48).

“The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE]: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:35-36).

“[HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH LIFE; AND HE THAT HATH NOT THE SON OF GOD HATH NOT LIFE]. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).

Why does life on this earth have to E N D?

The word of God says:

“For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made” (Isaiah 57:16).

“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4).

“Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye” (Ezekiel 18:23, 32).

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” (Acts 17:24-26).

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where 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 17:30-31).

“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].

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” (2 Peter 3:9-12).

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 13:3).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto [SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
