The Gospel Message
God Loves You!!! He has created you for a relationship of Love with him.
The creation: The human race began when God created the first man, Adam.
Adam was created in the image and likeness of God. In His Image God created Adam as a triune being Spirit, Soul and Body. In His Likeness as innocent of any sin and with the power to love by free will.
God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he took one of his ribs and made a woman (Eve) and brought her to Adam. GOD expressing his desire for both of them to experience the oneness of Love that is of God himself.
The choice: Love requires a choice.
Therefore, God put Adam and Eve into the garden of Eden and commanded them to take care of it and they could freely eat of every tree but the one in the center of the garden. If they ate of this forbidden tree they would die. God allowed Satan into the garden to test their love for Him. Satan tempted Adam and Eve and they disobeyed God, they sinned and they died. Their death was not physical right away but spiritual. The Spirit of Man was that part of man that was created by God to know him and his love. That was dead and they would eventually experience physical death as well.
The consequence: Sin and death passed on to all mankind through Adam’s offspring.
“Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world , and death by sin : and so death passed upon, all men, for all have sinned” Romans 5:12. The wages of sin is death(first physical) Rom:6:23, ( then eternal) separation from God in a burning lake of fire prepared for Satan and his angles, Rev. 20:14. God is not willing that any person would suffer this horrific punishment for our rebellion against Him so God, who knows all things had a plan from before time began to save all of mankind from our sinful nature. 2nd Tim. 1:9
The Gospel: the good news of God’s Love towards mankind.
God sent his only begotten son, Jesus to pay for the sins of all humanity and bring a way for all to come back into a relationship with Him. The Apostle Paul would write:
1 Cor. 15:3-4 “I delivered unto you first of all that which I received how that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures and that he was buried and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”
Through death he destroyed him that had the power of death that is the devil, Heb.2:14
Through his resurrection, according to his abundant Mercy and Grace he gave us a living Hope. 1 Pet.1:3
In this was manifested the Love of God towards us, because that God sent his only begotten son into the world, that we might live through Him, 1Jn. 4:9
How do you receive this gift of Love from God... Forgiveness and new life? Pray! If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For Man believes with his heart and so is Justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved. Rom. 10:9-10 (RSV)
