"The Plan

“The Plan”

 God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.   Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.     John 3:16-18

God’s plan for the SALVATION of mankind, was brought about because of His ABUNDANT MERCY, AMAZING GRACE and His AWESOME, UNFAILING LOVE for the Crown of His Creation, MANKIND.  In John, chapter one, it tells us that:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the WORD was GOD.  This is referring to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and verse four tells us that: “In Him, (Jesus) was LIFE, and that LIFE was the LIGHT of ALL MANKIND.  But the World did NOT recognize Him.  Yet to ALL who did RECEIVE Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become Children of God. (v12)

You see, the world was so SINFUL and HOPELESS, without any way to RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, and to be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL it’s HORRORS.  So, God’s PLAN was to provide a WAY for mankind to be FREED from their SINFUL LIFE, by providing a SPOTLESS SACRIFICE, one who was ABLE to carry out the PLAN of SALVATION.  So, the WORD became flesh and made His dwelling among mankind.  The ONE and ONLY SON, Jesus Christ, came from the FATHER, full of GRACE and TRUTH.  And He was/is the ONLY WAY for mankind to be REDEEMED and for them to become a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD. 

Whoever BELIEVES in the SON of God has ETERNAL LIFE, but whoever REJECTS the Son will NOT see life, for God’s WRATH remains on them. (3:36) And their DESTINY is ETERNAL LIFE in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, once you are there.  

Part of God’s PLAN is for those who are the CALLED, to take the Gospel to a LOST and DYING world.  Jesus gave His life so that the World might be SAVED.  He LIVED, He DIED, and was RESURRECTED, and shortly after His resurrection, He gave instructions to His Disciples; “Go into ALL the world and PREACH the gospel to ALL creation.   Whoever BELIEVES and is baptized will be SAVED, but whoever does NOT BELIEVE will be CONDEMNED.”  Will this be your FATE??

It will be, IF you REJECT God’s PLAN of SALVATION, by REJECTING His Only Son, the LORD JESUS CHRIST.   If you have NOT BELIEVED in God’s SON, nor ACCEPTED God’s PLAN of SALVATION, you will stand CONDEMNED to an ETERNITY in HELL.  However, you NOW have the OPPORTUNITY to ACCEPT GOD’S PLAN, and become His Child, with an ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, IF you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and God’s PLAN for your ETERNITY.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
