Summary: Just what do you think SAVED? Most of us BELIEVED that, being SAVED is going to Heaven when we die. Yes, it’s TRUE! But this is just a THEOLOGICAL definition of being SAVED. I just want to tell you that, “Just knowing about God and the Bible is not enough
“For God so LOVED [before] the world that He gave His ONLY Son, so that EVERYONE who BELIEVES in Him will NOT PERISH but have ETERNAL LIFE.” (John 3:16, NLT)
This passage is commonly used during EVANGELISM. They say that this is the HEART of the Bible. Yes, everybody AGREE. But it is mistakenly used to preach the TRADITIONAL “gospel” of Heaven and hell. Did you ever read in this passage that you will go to Heaven after death if you BELIEVE in Him? Or else, ENDLESS PUNISHMENT in a “Hell Fire”? If you BELIEVE like this and PREACH it, you are PREACHING that our Creator, the LOVING God, who LOVED us, even BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN, is so CRUEL! What’s the point of PREACHING the “Prodigal Son”? Have you ever read Romans 5:6-10? The Apostle Paul explains that when we WERE utterly HELPLESS, Jesus Christ came just the RIGHT TIME and died for us. God LOVED us even when we WERE STILL SINNERS and considered an ENEMY of God.
Just what do you think SAVED? Most of us BELIEVED that, being SAVED is going to Heaven when we die. Yes, it’s TRUE! But this is just a THEOLOGICAL definition of being SAVED. I just want to tell you that, “Just knowing about God and the Bible is not enough. EXPERIENCING the UNFAILING and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and OVERFLOWING GRACE of God is what really matters.” Jesus came for SINNERS, WEAK, POOR, OPPRESSED, etc…
Jesus Christ came to SAVE us from our evil master, Satan, we were once a SLAVE of sin! Jesus Christ became human to TEACH us the WAY that leads to ETERNAL LIFE! So that we might experience HEAVEN! This was discussed above. Again, what is in Heaven that we can experience in this earthly life? PEACE, JOY, LOVE, PROSPERITY, etc… Because God wants you to experience ABUNDANT QUALITY of LIFE! A VICTORIOUS and SUCCESSFUL life! Now, If you are SAVED you are FREE (free of doubt, worry, fear, guilt). Should not live in POVERTY and SLAVERY. These are spirits of this world! WORRY is a spirit! FEAR and TIMIDITY is a spirit! POVERTY is a spirit! SLAVERY is a spirit! The Lord Jesus Christ has given you the AUTHORITY and POWER to CAST out this UNCLEAN spirits in your life, in your family, in your neighborhood, in your NATION and in ALL the NATIONS of the earth!
If you’re TRULY a Christian who LOVES God, you should live like you are in Heaven. You should also experience the ETERNAL LIFE! Just what do you think, ETERNAL LIFE? It is the HIGHEST QUALITY of LIFE you can’t even IMAGINE. An ABUNDANT QUALITY of LIFE you’ve never even DREAMED of. You will UNDERSTAND that you are part of God’s PERFECT PLAN from the FOUNDATION of the world. You will become WHOLE again, no matter what the devil had DONE in your life. When you face UNDESIRABLE things and UNWANTED situations, God turns them into GOOD and use them for your OWN BENEFIT, as long as you TRUST His PURPOSE, His PROMISES, follow His WAYS and OBEY His LAW. God will cause ALL THINGS (even bad things) for YOUR OWN BENEFIT. Now, that you already have ETERNAL LIFE, you should not FEAR and WORRY for tomorrow. You are already SECURED in the ETERNAL PLAN of God.
