He That Believeth

Mark 16:16

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

(KJV)

There are many teachings, types of religions that teach about various man made gods for man to believe on and still inherit heaven. Some religions don’t practice that there is in fact a heaven and a hell.

There are over 20 major religions in the world.

Almost every ancient civilization has worshiped the sun.

Many believers are Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and etc.

Many look to other people and other ways to get to heaven.

Today there are those who are worshiping the sun, moon, stars, trees, plants, animals, all of creation, but not the creator.

There are those looking to and worshiping other men and false gods instead of looking to the only true and living God.

Undoubtedly these people believe just as the open text implies but it is what they are believing upon that is wrong.

Mark 16:16

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

(KJV)

This scripture when taken alone would give one the impression that you just have to believe, but on what?

Previously, Jesus said...

Mark 16:15

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

B.

Man is to believe the gospel in order to be saved.

What is the gospel-good news

What is the good news-Jesus died for the sins of the world

James 1:21

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

(KJV)

How is the word able to save me...

Rom 10:17

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(KJV)

What does the word say?

Rom 3:23

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

(KJV)

How have all sinned?

Rom 5:19

19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

(KJV)

The Fall of Man...

How can I change my nature?

Rom 5:19

19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

(KJV)

How can I be made righteous and by whom?

John 3:3

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

(KJV)

John 3:14-18

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 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.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

(KJV)

Belief alone will not get you to heaven. But believing ON Jesus Christ will. Even yet it takes more than just believing, though faith is what it takes. But there must be a relationship with Christ, resulted from a life changing experience with Him. It starts with faith, you must believe that Jesus is who he says he is, that he did die for the sin of the world, and that if you ask for his forgiveness, his blood will cleanse you from all your sin. It begins with faith but ends with a relationship.
