Jesus Christ - Believe His words Today And Be Saved!

I have been thinking of the extraordinary sweep of history that we find in the Bible - the Word of God - it goes right back to the beginning and takes us right through to the eternal future; it prophecies of things to come, it is history written before it takes place.

The Bible never tries to explain the inexplicable, and so it begins where we should always begin with God -

In the beginning God - Genesis 1: 1 and finished as it should with these words - Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

If we come to the Bible by faith, and read it for what is, the Word of God, we shall find that there is a unity of thought throughout, indicating that one mind inspired the Scriptures (as the Bible calls itself) and formed the series of books (39 Old testament/ 27 New Testament) so that they carry the seal of their author - Almighty God himself.

The Bible has been written by many men through many centuries. Men of many different vocations and callings and from different social statuses, nevertheless it is one single book; this in itself is a miracle and shows its supernatural origin.

Not only must we come to the Bible by faith, but we must depend on the Holy Scriptures for guidance, Jesus Christ promised his disciples that -

"These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you" - John 14: 24 & 25

Both the apostle Paul and the apostle Peter testified that the Bible is inspired -

Paul -
You have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. All Scripture is God - breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work - 2 Timothy 3: 15 to 17

Peter -

Above all you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along be the Holy Spirit - 2 Peter 1: 20 & 21

Jesus said to the Jews -

"The Scripture cannot be set aside or cancelled or broken or annulled." - John 10: 34 Amplified version& 35

Jesus spoke very strongly against those who put tradition before the Word of God -
"You nullify the Word of God for the sake of your tradition. You Hypocrites!" - Matthew 14: 6

As the Holy Spirit inspired the writers of the Bible so he will guide you as you read it. The Holy Spirit is God’s representative on earth to lead those who believe into the truth as it is in Jesus Christ.

But you must ask God the Father in the name of Jesus that he may give you the Holy Spirit. Jesus himself put it this way -

"If you then, though you are evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" - Luke 11: 13

Have you come, personally (I can’t emphasize too much the need to do this personally- you yourself) and ask God to forgive you your sins for Jesus Christ’s sake, if you do this you will be saved for eternity and you will receive the Holy Spirit. The apostle Peter gave this promise when the church was born in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost -

"Repent (that is change the direction of your life and believe) and be baptised (that is as a believer) every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far of - for all whom the Lord our God will call" - Acts 2: 38 & 39

Pray to the Lord now and ask his forgiveness and he will come into your heart by the Holy Spirit and your life will be changed for eternity; the Bible will then come alive for you and God will speak to you through it.

Jesus said the Jews -
"It is the Spirit that gives life - He is the life - giver; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever - there is no profit in it. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life" - John 6: 63 Amplified Version.

Believe his words today and be saved!

God bless you!!!
