Salvation is not through an Organization, a Church or by doing Good Works. Salvation is only in the Person of Jesus Christ
Speaking of Jesus Christ: Acts 4: 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
John 14:6 (Jesus said) “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me”
1 Tim 2: 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Salvation is not through any Organization but a person, Jesus Christ.
You cannot work for salvation it is a Free Gift.
Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
God is the Author of our salvation.
John 1: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
The indwelling of the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Ghost)
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8: 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Ghost was at work in creation:
Gen 1: 1 In beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
God said let US make man in OUR image.
In the beginning God ( Elohim ) a plural noun. ( more than two)
Bara ( Hebrew - Created) Bar ( Hebrew - Son of ) A (Hebrew - aleph – God ) The creator Bar - a (Son of God) Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the creator - not a created being.
Jesus was in the beginning with God. He pre existed creation. (The Word of God - Logos)
John 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
V2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
If Christ was in the beginning with God, He could NOT have been created. (He was not the brother of the created archangel Michael)
Heb 1:8 but to the Son: Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
(Speaking of Jesus Christ )
Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Jesus said John 14: 9“ If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father”
He did not say, If you have seen Me, you have seen someone that looks like the Father.
Colossians 2: 9 In Him (Jesus) dwells All the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily.
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Matt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
You must be Born Again.
To inherit the Kingdom of God, you must be born of the Spirit.
Jesus told this to Nicodemus. John 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.
Every man and woman must be born naturally and also be born again a second time. This is a spiritual birth, a regeneration from spiritual death to spiritual life. This can only happen by the quickening of the Holy Spirit and faith and trust in the merits of Jesus Christ alone.
The Mystery of the Gospel .
Colossians 1:27 To whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
1 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
