This blog discusses the spiritual requirements for Salvation that most Christians are not aware of
Category: Biblical Theology
Biblical theology is essential for every Christian to know if he or she does NOT want to be DECEIVED.
The Apostle Paul said the ONLY GOSPEL that Jesus Christ will use to determine if Christians have OBEYED the ONE TRUE GOSPEL or not is Paul’s Gospel, or “My Gospel“.
“In the day [of Judgement – either for ‘Rewards’ (Matthew 25:10) or for ‘Damnation’ (Rev 20:11-15)] when God [the Father] shall judge the secrets of [Christian] men[and women] by [using] Jesus Christ [as Judge] according to MY GOSPEL.” (Romans 2:16)
Please read these articles, as they help you learn what the Bible says about Bible-based topics.
Jesus Christ presented His Ten Commandments in the form of warnings that Christians should take notice, that their Salvation is at risk. If they ignore these warnings, they will NOT inherit eternal life with Him.
In this, Jesus said:
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
The above verse could also be interpreted as saying:
“If ye [really and sincerely] love me [as you claim you do, then], keep [or OBEY each of] my commandments.” (John 14:15)
Recently I discovered the following Ten Commandments of Jesus that are expressed in the form of ‘negative commandments’. In this, they are presented as warnings from Jesus for every Christian to take notice. As an example, one warning in John 3:5 says they “…CANNOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD”.
Jesus Christ used parables to describe what the Kingdom of Heaven was like. This article represents a modern-day parable of the education system. As such systems of education are found in many countries, they are used to illustrate the Biblical truth about Salvation and how God expects His people to progress and mature from beginning (Initial Salvation) to the end (Final Salvation).
The scripture verse that underscores the message in this post is this:
“It is written in the prophets, And THEY[ALL truly 'born-again' Christians] shall be ALL TAUGHT[PERSONALLY] of God [the Father]. Every[truly 'born-again'] man[or woman] therefore that hath HEARD, and hath LEARNED of [God] THE FATHER, COMETH UNTO ME [Jesus—at the Rapture].” (John 6:45)
Every Christian commences their faith-journey when he or she first accepts Christ as their personal Savior. This symbolizes in the parable a young child commencing their education years in kindergarten.
A recent article I read identifies society’s corruption that the Prophet Jeremiah experienced in his day some 2,600-years ago. It also reveals how today’s corrupt world parallels Jeremiah’s world back then. Naturally, such a situation brought about God’s judgment on an area of the world back then, as stated in the Bible:
"And upon Elam[on the Northeast side of the Persian Gulf] will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam[the Elamites] shall not come. 37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: 38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the Lord." (Jeremiah 49:36-38)
This Bible study examines the many PROMISES and the COMMANDMENTS contained in the New Covenant. God expects Christians to obey each of these. Any failure by Christians to not understand the ‘fine print’ in the Covenant indicates they could lose their Salvation.
Many preachers claim that if an unsaved person accepts Christ as their Savior, they have experienced the New Birth, or “born again”. However, can such a claim be justified in scripture?
I question this because of my own ‘New Birth’ experience (John 3:8). What happened at this time was that God placed a “new heart” within me (Ezek 36:26). This experience allowed me to “see” the state of God’s kingdom inside the churches, which to me was horrific.
Do you know the Bible reveals there are five compartments within Hell? Most Christians will acknowledge there is a “hell” but know little more than that. But what about there being a Paradise in Hell, you say?
I recently read a blog post where the author believed Christ did NOT go to Hell. He explained the basis of his beliefs, but I reject his claims.
