The Gospel

The Gospel
Good news is always welcome – well it should be.

The coming of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God was the best news. The Lord from heaven came to reveal  God the Father and bring eternal salvation to the estranged human race.

When the Lord Jesus began to preach, H e announced “the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the good news”.       And so he preached, and so He healed, and many believed and were saved.     Yet many refused to believe and were condemned..

As the Lord commanded, the gospel has been preached throughout the world and millions have believed. Strange as it may seem, many suffer and many die for the sake of the gospel. The significant value of believing the gospel is it’s eternal blessing. The Lord Himself taught ‘man may destroy the body, after that we are in God’s hands for eternity’

The question then revolves upon this Bible verse:
“Whoever has the Son has life, whoever does not have the Son does not have life”  1 John 5.12

Let us all be sure we saved by faith in God’s Son, lest unbelief leave us condemned under God’s wrath for all eternity.
