#8 THE GOSPEL OF GRACE?

QUESTION #8

‚ÄčWHAT DOES THE GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD MEAN?

 

1Cor 15:1-4

[1]  Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

 

(ALSO BRETHREN, THIS IS MY GOSPEL, I PREACHED UNTO YOU, YOU RECEIVED IT AND UNDERSTOOD IT, AND YOU ARE SOLID AND STRONG IN YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THIS TRUTH, UNMOVABLE)

 

[2]  By which also ye are saved,

 

(SAVED FROM HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE)

 

If ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

 

(IF YOU KEEP IN MEMORY, BY BELIEVING THIS, NOT JUST WITH YOUR MIND, BUT WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART, SOUL, STRENGTH AND MIGHT THIS GOSPEL. OTHERWISE YOUR BELIEF WOULD BE IN VAIN, DEAD)

 

[3]  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,

 

(I GAVE THIS GOSPEL TO YOU AFTER I RECEIVED IT DIRECTLY FROM THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF FROM HEAVEN'S GLORY)

 

how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

 

(THIS IS A FACT THAT DETERMINES WHETHER YOU LIVE OR DIE. CHRIST DIED - HE WAS DEAD, NOT BREATHING, NOT ALIVE. CHRIST NOT ONLY DIED HIS OWN DEATH, BUT CHRIST ALSO DIED MY DEATH AT CALVARY. CHRIST DIED FOR ALL OF MY SINS, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE, CHRIST DIED FOR YOUR SINS, JUST AS HE, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, SAID SO IN HIS WORD)

 

[4]  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

(THE LORD WAS PUT INTO THE TOMB, THE SEPULCHRE, THE GRAVE, ON THE THIRD DAY OF BEING DEAD, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ROSE UP TO LIFE AGAIN, JUST EXACTLY AS HE SAID SO IN HIS HOLY WORD)

 

BELIEVE WHAT THE LORD DID FOR YOU ON THE CROSS, HOW HE DIED FOR YOUR SINS, WAS BURIED AND ROSE AGAIN. BELIEVE THIS WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART, SOUL, AND MIND, AND WITH ALL OF YOUR STRENGTH AND MIGHT, WITHOUT TRYING TO ADD ANY WORKS OF YOUR OWN, AND GOD WILL SAVE YOU FROM HELL, GIVE YOU HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, FORGIVE YOU ALL YOUR SINS, SEAL YOU WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE.  THIS IS URGENT! DON'T WAIT. AFTER YOU LEAVE EARTH, IT WILL BE TOO LATE FOR YOU TO DECIDE. THIS GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED BY THE LORD ONCE YOU DIE. IF YOU DID NOT TRUST CHRIST'S DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION, WHILE YOU WERE ALIVE ON THIS EARTH, YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE KNOWING HOW EASY IT COULD HAVE BEEN FOR YOU, IF YOU SIMPLY HAD BELIEVED WHAT CHRIST DID FOR YOU ON THE CROSS, AND YOU WILL KNOW THEN, THAT YOU COULD HAVE LIVED FOREVER IN HEAVEN.
