“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.”
John 3:16 (KJV)
It’s ALL about Jesus. Have you ever wondered the meaning of life? The meaning of life is very simple: to worship and fellowship with our creator Jesus Christ (Holy Trinity). Jesus is God. In fact, everything created was made through Him (John 1:3). We were created for His pleasure (Ephesians 1:5).
The “World” has a different meaning of life. The world teaches that the people to admire are the ones who appear have it all: the material possessions like mansions, cars, planes, yachts, and of course money to burn. The world determines a person’s worth by their accomplishments. Therefore, many individuals determine their own self-worth by how much they’ve personally accomplished during their life time.
Aside from material possessions, these perceived accomplishments come in the form of social standing like diplomas, degrees, titles, trophies, medals, etc. Unfortunately those who die without Christ and had based their worthiness on their accomplishments will be in for a shock to say the least.
The book of Revelation describes what is known as the Great White Throne Judgement for unbelievers who had never placed their trust in Jesus. It will be a horrific day for those unbelievers who will be judged by Jesus Himself before they are cast into the lake of fire (Hell). The screams and moans of those who are eternally damned will be dreadfully terrible. Will they try in vain to hopelessly defend themselves? “I’m a very famous actor and I won an Academy Award!” Or a doctor screams, “I saved lives and I was a pillar in my community!”
“Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 20:11-15 (ESV)
The World does not view things from an “eternal perspective”. The world views things from a “here and now” perspective. We’re born. We go to school. We work. We retire. We die. That’s how it’s supposed to work right? Basically, it’s the whole dying part that the World wants to ignore. It’s a touchy subject. Too disturbing, therefore focus on life and living in the now. Besides, everyone dies. The World for the most part thinks that the majority of people will go to heaven-if of course they believe in an afterlife at all.
What the World will not tell you is that Jesus is the only way to heaven (John 14:6). It’s quite simple really: any belief that there is another way to heaven besides through Jesus Christ is a false belief. It’s a lie. It’s not the truth. Jesus Christ is the TRUTH. Again, Jesus Christ is God (Holy Trinity)!
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:1 (KJV)
Jesus Christ is the Word. As the scriptures state, the Word was with God and the Word was God. Jesus was born of a virgin-fully God and fully Man. When Jesus came to earth He was on a mission. Jesus’ mission was to do the Father’s will when He came (John 6:39). Jesus faced temptation just like you and I but He did not sin (1Peter 2:22). His mission was to provide a way so that it would be possible to be “made right” with God again. Due to Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden, mankind had been separated from God. Jesus came to restore our relationship. How? By the shedding of His precious blood, a perfect sacrifice- in fact, the only sacrifice that would be acceptable to God.
Why does Jesus deserve all the glory? It is a terrible, frightening thought to think of the consequences had Jesus failed. After Jesus was baptised, He was then tempted by the Devil in the desert (Matthew 4:1). He was in the desert for a period of forty days (Mark 1:13). If Jesus had of sinned in the desert or any other time during His earthly life, He would no longer have been the perfect sacrifice to God and therefore mankind would have been eternally lost. The result would have been absolutely devastating beyond words. There would have been no opportunity whatsoever for anyone born to avoid hell. Our fate would have been sealed forever. The absolute horror awaiting every human would have been unimaginable. But praise God, Jesus did live a perfect life and He did complete His mission, triumphantly declaring “It is finished” (John 19:30).
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
Hebrews 4:15 (ESV)
Jesus rose from the dead on the third day proving that death had no hold on Him (Acts 2:24). The very fact of Jesus’ resurrection is absolute solid proof that Jesus is the TRUTH and He can be completely trusted. His resurrection verifies and confirms everything Jesus claimed during His life on earth. In fact, on one particular occasion- Jesus appeared to over five hundred of His followers (1 Corinthians 15:6). Satan and his armies have been defeated; with Satan himself eventually being thrown into hell (Revelation 20:10).
The World’s view of Jesus is basically a teacher who was crucified on the cross. The World mocked Jesus then and the World mocks Jesus now. The World views the crucifixion of Christ as a defeat. However, nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, Jesus could have called down twelve legions of angels to prevent His arrest-had He wished to do so:
“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?”
Matthew 26:53-54 (ESV)
The World fails to see that Jesus set out to do exactly what was planned long beforehand and He was victorious! Jesus’ death and resurrection was a complete victory! Now a way was possible for sinful man to be declared righteous before God- not by anything we have done-but because of what Jesus has done. When we confess to God that we are a sinner deserving of hell-and we put our faith (trust) in Jesus alone and His finished work on the cross-we are saved.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9 (NLT)
The World views Jesus as a defeated teacher who was crucified on the cross and died. What the world neglects to mention is what Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, truly accomplished on the cross in one single act that was “once and for all.” Not only did Jesus redeem mankind and defeat Satan- Jesus rose again on the third day defeating death! It is certainly no surprise whatsoever that there are plenty of scoffers in these last days who continue to mock and insult Jesus. These scoffers were mentioned in scripture thousands of years ago (2 Peter 3:3, Jude 1:18). These unbelievers will have a future appointment before the King of kings and Lord of lords in all His glory – but unfortunately for them it will be too late – the second death in the lake of fire will be their final destination forever and ever. The bottom line concerning the World is that this present world is temporary and will indeed pass away (1 John 2:17).
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
Revelation 7:9-12 (ESV)
In closing, it’s very difficult to read the above quotation from the Apostle John’s testimony in the book of Revelation and not have a glimpse of the awesome majestic glory of Jesus Christ in heaven receiving the worship of the multitude of the Saints, Angels, and all of heaven. Jesus is God (Holy Trinity)! Why does Jesus receive all the worship? Because Jesus is worthy.
Finally, don’t be under the false belief that because Jesus took away the sins of the world – everyone is saved and on their way to heaven. Jesus did indeed take away the sins of the world, but in order to be saved and on the narrow path to heaven – we need to personally call upon Jesus and receive his forgiveness – in other words, Jesus’ payment for our sins still needs to be applied to our sin-debt account.
How are we saved? First, we need to confess that we are a sinner to Jesus. The Bible clearly states that the penalty for sin is death (hell). If a person can’t even admit to God that they are a sinner than that individual would not believe they need a saviour. Knowing what a filthy wretched sinner we really are before a Holy God is the first step.
Second, in your own words ask Jesus into your heart and to forgive you of your sins.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.”
Revelation 3:20 (ESV)
Simply ask Jesus to apply His payment for your sins. It was the shedding of His precious blood that pays for our sins. A transaction takes place at salvation: Jesus takes ALL of the sins of the guilty sinner (past, present, and future) and in turn gives the guilty sinner His perfect righteousness! How truly awesome is Jesus! Believe that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day and put all your trust in Jesus’ finished work on the cross.
There is nothing you can do to save yourself. You are trusting in Jesus to save you. The Bible does teach that works are a necessary part of faith. However, works are the result of being saved and receiving the Holy Spirit who will dwell within the believer at the moment of salvation. Again, works are simply evidence that the person has truly been ‘born-again’ by the spirit. In other words, God’s spirit does not lie dormant within a true believer! When a person is truly born again (grace through faith) - good works will eventually begin to flow from that person because God is now literally inside of that true believer.
Jesus made an amazing promise – He stated that all that the Father has given to Him – that person who comes to Him will never be cast out (John 6:37). Salvation is not about religion but rather a personal and trusting relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. If you have not received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour - receive Him right now.
