The Gospel of Jesus Christ
by Tony MacCormack
My friend, the appointed time has arrived. When Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven nearly 2,000 years ago he promised to return. The signs of His return are all around us; we are certain it will be very very soon this time. He will come as the King of kings and judge of all the earth. The scriptures tell us that prior to judging the earth the Lord will remove His people from it. Born again Christians all over the world are now eagerly awaiting the sound of the "trump of God"
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18: "For the Lord himself shall descent from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. "
My earnest desire is that you will join me around God's throne as one of the redeemed to give glory, honour, praise and blessing to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ - the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Are you Born Again - Is the Lord Jesus Christ Your Redeemer?
In John 14:6 Jesus said "No man cometh unto the Father but by me." Then in Acts 4:12 Luke states "Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Religion or being religious cannot give new birth; works are of no consequence - when Jesus cried out on the cross "It is finished" he was referring to the work of salvation. It is there at Calvary that the work finished, and now, by God's grace we can lay hold of salvation through faith. Ephesians 2:8~9 tells us "For by grace are ye save through faith ... Not of works, less any man should boast."
if you are not a born-again Christian will you urgently consider the eternal consequences of rejecting God's gift of Salvation? Today is all we have tomorrow does not belong to us ~ it may never arrive. If it does, it will be only by God's grace.
if you want to make Jesus your Lord and Master, turn to Him now in repentance; ask for his forgiveness; trust Him to honour His word. You can pray this prayer:
Lord Jesus .... I acknowledge that I am born a sinner, and have
sinned. It is my desire to repent of all my sin right now. I believe
that you are God's only begotten Son, that You came to this earth
as a human being and that by Your death You paid the price for
my sin. I believe that God the Father raised You from the dead.
I ask You now to come into my heart and life and I make You my
Lord and Saviour Help me to trust, honour and obey you. I ask
that by Your Holy Spirit You will lead and guide me and teach me
how I should live according to Your Word. Amen
