Trade Judgment for Forgivness

All of us reap the results of Adam’s sin and Gods punishment. We have inherited his guilt and the tendency to sin, and God’s punishment. We are born into Adam’s physical family line which leads to death. Because of what God’s Son, Jesus Christ has done for us we can trade judgment for forgiveness. Jesus offers us the opportunity to be born into His Spiritual family. 

How do we seize this opportunity? How do we become members of His spiritual family? We seize it buy accepting and believing the Gospel truth of the Water and the Spirit. By this acceptance we are accepting the salvation that delivers every sinner from all their sins, past, present and future. 

(Romans 5:17 - 20)

17 “For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 

18 Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 

19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 

20 Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: “

As sinners, we are separated from God. We must know and believe that Jesus Christ has come by the true gospel of the water and the Spirit.

Anyone who believes in the true gospel of the Water and the Spirit can confess the true faith of salvation from now on. If we do nothing, we have death through Adam, but if we come to God by faith, we have life through Christ. 

Through the acceptance of the true gospel of the Water and the Spirit, He has given us New Life and sin’s power is broken. 

(Romans 6:2, 3) 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 

3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 

Our sin loving nature is buried.    (Romans 6:4)

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 

We are no longer under sin’s control.   (Romans 6:6)

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 

We can now share his new life and look upon your old sin nature as dead and unresponsive, and instead be alive to God. When we believe in the true gospel of the Water and the Spirit we give ourselves completely to God and we are FREE, we can choose our own master. It is impossible to be neutral. Every person has a master – either God or sin. A believer in the gospel of the Water and the Spirit is not someone who cannot sin or who never sins, but someone who is no longer a slave to sin. He belongs to God, not to sin.

The saved should praise God for their salvation for it is God’s gift that pardons our sins and is open to all people, even the worse of sinners. 

(1 Timothy 1: 12-15)  And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 

13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 

14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 

15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 

How thankful I am to Christ Jesus our Lord for choosing me as one of His messages and giving me the strength to be faithful to Him. Amen
