God wanted his people to be happy forever, he wanted to erase the sin of the first human beings and all who came after them. This is God’s plan of salvation, and the path he walks with us is called salvation history. Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, God made a new and promising covenant with his people that from that moment on, it
Gen. 15:6. Nevertheless, Abraham believes God, who gives life to the dead, God revealed his power by creating life in Sarah’s dead womb”, also, the power of God is demonstrated when he raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Rom. (11, 10:9) “ James 2:17. when referring to faith, he stated, that “faith without works is dead, faith is dead without works, there is no life without the spirit, only saving faith through good works can only sustain you, there was a work that Jesus Christ did on the Cross and it was through faith he was raised from the dead., which was a good works, to save a sinful nations.
Jesus’ promise exists through the ages so as we may draw nearer to God through him, in the spirit of sacrifice rather than the burnt offerings of priests (Peterson, D. 1985). To offer, whether it be of law or nature, heart or mind what was once reserved for the sacrificial priests has become a covenant between Christ and those whom believe he died on the cross that we might live free of our sinful nature. the nature and role of the interpreter in this passage is to follow the essence of the true miracle of Christ’s death and resurrection over the centuries and into modern day believers. May all who interpret Hebrews 10:1-18 be of glad heart in that the Savior’s covenant live through Paul’s words, “ And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary” (Hebrews 10:18). Now, in the days of “Lives Matter”, leaders of the Christian community should resolve to all lives mattering and the end of sacrifices by Christ’s children.
INTRODUCTION Anderson notes that Jesus' mission "was not entirely completed in his death and resurrection" (p. 189). He understands that Jesus' missional activity continues as he sends the Spirit to form and gift the church to participate with him in his ongoing paracletic ministry on earth. The Eschatological Nature of Apostolic Ministry Anderson’s position in chapter 12 is Jesus' ministry has a distinctly "eschatological nature" in that it brings into the present, piece-by-piece, and through the church, the future fullness of the kingdom. Paul refers to the church as God's "new creation"---the in-breaking of what God has done to reconcile the world through Christ and the Spirit continues through the church's ministry of reconciliation.
By the grace of God he captures the hearts of his people, by his choice. To pursue the last point made, another verse is Proverbs 14:12 which says, "“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” The point is, we live in an incredibly wicked world. The heart of man is wicked and all desires are evil or in vain without God grabbing the heart of
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the upbringing of the Kingdom of God and his followers. The gospel of Jesus Christ is his life, death, and resurrection. We can see that Jesus lived a perfect life, although we still turned on him. When Jesus died on the cross, he rose again three days later, he gave us mercy when we did not give him any. The gospel started with Christ and now it is our job as Christians to bring others to Christ and live for him, because he died for us.
10:1f). in other words, it was on the cross where human sin was paid for, henceforth, man stands forgiven in the eyes of the righteous God and because of that event of crucifixion man’s eternal punishment was lifted (Isa.53:1-12; Col.2:14; 1 peter 1:18). Precisely, as Jesus took upon himself the sin of the world and died on the cross (John 1:29), the world found it’s righteous in him (1 Cor. 5:21; Eph.1:7). In all these we see the infinite love of God been displayed, (Hebblethwaite,
“Man cannot grasp how death could be the source of life and love; yet to reveal the mystery of his saving plan God has chosen precisely that which reason considers "foolishness" and a "scandal" (John Paul pg. 21). The main justification that Paul provides is the truth about the deeper meaning of the Cross of Christ. The cross provides the wisdom needed to understand the motives of God and the amount of love that humans are truly capable of. In total, reason alone cannot fully eliminate the reason for the crucifixion itself. Faith is needed to fully understand His death and that faith in the Cross can lead to the ultimate answer of
It was written so that all might trust in Jesus Christ the Son of God who offers everlasting life. John’s gospel uses the word “Believe” ninety eight times and the word “Life” thirty-six times, in an effort to implant the significance that it is essential that one must believe in order to live eternally. John is not one of the three synoptic gospels, but in its place was written with a more scriptural material, yet correspondingly as enthused and important as the primary three gospels. Not everything Jesus did was recorded in the bible. “And there are many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written” (Bible, John
In the Christian faith salvation is gifted by God, and God does not grant salvation because of what one owns, how one looks, one’s strength, family, or friends. This play details such when the character Everyman pleads for such characters to accompany him on a journey to his grave. Jesus says in the Bible “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
many years later in his second monthly known as the Millennial Harbinger. It was the idea of “Baptism by Emersion” Campbell claimed was essential to receive salvation. Through the Christian system and Christian Baptism (two books Alexander Campbell wrote over baptism) Alexander Campbell breaks down the creeds of Episcopalian, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Baptists showing that they all have the same common belief that sanctification comes through the cognitive decision by ones self to be baptized (fully immersed). Though he claims it is evident that all these denominations are too afraid to carry this belief out in their faith or in their practice (Christian system-remission of sins, Prop.XII) .
The Christian worldview believes in only one God, the creator of the universe. Making Him all powerful, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient and desiring to have a personal and intimate relationship with His creation. A relationship that must be nurture every day, by reading His word (The Bible), spend time on prayer thanking, worshiping and seeking His guidance. The essence of the Christian worldview is Jesus Christ. God loved his creation so much that he sent his only son Jesus Christ to die for our sins to give us eternal life.
God decided to have Jesus save the world because of all the sin happening. God sent an angel to tell the Virgin Mary she would have a son that would be God’s prophet and spread the Christian faith. In John 4:9 of The Holy Bible it quotes “God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” This means that Jesus was sent in hopes that we would live by God’s rules. Jesus grew up but was unaware of his purpose so he needed to contact his father, God.
