From Jesus in the Gospels to the last chapters of Revelation, the Bible warns repeatedly about the day of judgment, the wrath of God, and the lake of fire. Children of God should be overcomers in serving Jesus Christ in each part of their lives to boldly know they will escape hell and its torment.
Did Jesus die for the elect, or for all men? If Jesus died for all men, then His death is limited in power, for most men will spend eternity in hell. If Jesus died for the elect, then it is only limited in extent, for He purposed to save all He died for. This doctrine is key to understanding the gospel.
Most think Abraham was saved in Genesis 15:6 when he looked at the stars and believed God. But he had done many things by faith and was a righteous man long before that event. Sola Fide is heresy without works. Abraham was not truly justified until he tried to offer Isaac on Mt. Moriah.
Conservative Christians and churches stress the Great Commission as their duty. They repeat it ad nauseum at missions conferences. They do not believe the Lord can return until the whole earth hears the gospel. Do you know all the Bible says about this subject? You will learn rare truth here.
Any discussion of salvation must start with man’s condition. God warned Adam he would die the day he ate the forbidden fruit. He ate it anyway, and he died that day. All men are dead in trespasses and sins. They hate God and truth, and they cannot appreciate Jesus or the gospel without life.
Why do babies die? This subject is both sublime and terrifying. Do you know the doctrines of original sin, federal headship, and imputation? Adam and Jesus are representatives of two different sets of people. Their actions have been assigned to their constituents. Which Adam is yours?
This is by far the greatest gift of God in salvation. He did not settle for justifying His elect from their sins – He did not merely pardon them. He adopted them to be His sons, a higher honor than the angels. They are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ and will share the universe with Him as Lord.
In the great Day of Judgment, the only persons that will be saved will have their names in the book of life. While many sing and talk about getting their name written down by their faith or obedience, the Bible is the only true source of information about this book. Rejoice in the truth it reveals.
John chapters 18-19 give detailed facts of Jesus last 24 hours. But the true glory of the cross will be seen on Judgment Day. Only then will it be seen that it makes the difference between heaven and hell. All men will come to judgment for the greatest glory for God, Jesus, and the cross.
