Salvation Comes From God, Not Man

♥ ♥ Dear one.

In Almighty God's eyes, being a "good" person isn't enough to be saved from the judgments and wrath to come.


NO amount of "good works" on your part can ever SAVE you, or make up for the sins you've committed throughout your life.


The Bible tells us that OUR version of righteousness is as "filthy rags," and we are ALL an "unclean thing" (sinful.)

We are all GUILTY sinners. We have all done bad things in our lives.

The book of James in the Bible tells us that even ONE sin (such as lying, stealing or having sex before marriage,) can send a person to Hell FOREVER. 

The book of  Corinthians warns; 

"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 

Salvation (being saved, having EVERLASTING life and entering into Paradise,) comes from GOD, not man. That's why we ALL need Yeshua's (Jesus',) righteousness IMPUTED to us. 

I promise you, no matter WHAT you've done in your life, Yahweh (Almighty God,) can and WILL forgive you if you're truly sorry about your sins. 

He will forgive ANYBODY who looks to JESUS CHRIST to be saved.

John 3:16-18 tells us; 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Why not put your trust and faith in JESUS CHRIST, and ask Him to forgive your sins? We ALL need Yeshua's righteousness in order to be saved and to be able to enter into Paradise.

The precious blood of Jesus will WASH you clean, take away your sin, and make you RIGHTEOUS in God's eyes. :-)

Ask HIM to enable you to live a life of HOLINESS, to create in you a clean heart. But that's not the end of it! We are commanded to seek His righteousness DAILY if we are to obtain everlasting life in the Kingdom of God. 

Yahweh (Almighty God,) has not called us to live sinful 'unclean' lives. He has called us to REPENTANCE (turning away from sin) and holiness. 

When you REALLY love Jesus, you will NOT live a sinful and unholy life anymore! Jesus told us unless a person is born again (is saved and becomes a NEW person,) he/she won't see the kingdom of God.

Our Lord and Savior (Yeshua) promised; 

"Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."

"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."

"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

"Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."

"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

May God bless you and SANCTIFY you!

  2. In this post I see you have used the Jewish name of Yeshua and Yahweh. Praise Adonai for that. There is power and beauty in those names. Do go through my blog: www.thewordforlife.blogspot.com. May we both be edified through the things God teaches His people. Have a blessed day.
