” …..Jesus answered, ‘Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, No! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. (Jesus is talking about the second death, who’s names are not found in the Lambs Book of Life found in: Revelation 20:11-15) Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them-do you think they were more guilty than the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you No! But unless you repent, you too will parish.”
Notice what Jesus is saying here. For the mind set of the people then, believed, that those who die in freak accidents or murdered, were “worse or more” (,the key words here,) guilty then all others. So Jesus is telling those: every one is equally guilty before God, and unless you repent, you too will perish.
The word repent means: “a turning away from sin, disobedience, and rebellion. And turning back to God.” (according to the Nelsons Illustrated Dictionary of The Bible.) Jesus came into this world, by The virgin birth, in the flesh to save the sinner. All are guilty of sin, No one deserves eternal life, not even myself. Everyone deserves the ultimate judgment of Hell. All deserve to die in the second death, including myself. According to:
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
And in: Romans 3:10-18.
“There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God, all have turned away, they have altogether become worthless. (Another words, useless. And if something is useless, you throw it away. For it is trash/ refuse.) There is no one who is good, not even one. Their throats are open graves; (Which means all of us sinners speak forth death, curse, discouragements, lies and so forth.) their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on their lips. Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness. (And because of what they speak, ‘for the abundance of the heart, the mouth confesses‘, therefore it gives birth to action.) Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery marks their ways, and the ways of peace they do not know. (All of us think we know what peace or true peace is, but we all, really don’t know, unless you come to Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, and experience the true peace that Christ can bring.) There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
So these passages of scripture proves, that all human kind on the face of the earth are equally guilty in sight of God Almighty. There is no one more sinful than the other person, all are equally, sinners. Equally sinful.
Therefore, Romans 6:23
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (This is the only way to be saved, because notice,) the gift of God is eternal life In Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I watch a lot of documentaries on the History Channel, and I watched this one documentary about the Bible. They teach false teachings of the redemption plan of Christ. They always slip, tid-bits of false teachings with truth to make it sound good. Such as: faith and works will get you into the kingdom of Heaven. This falls short of the true teachings of redemption.
In: Romans 3:21-26
“But now a righteousness from God apart from law, (meaning works,) has been made known, to which the law and the Prophets (,all of the Old Testament, testify,) The righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory (,standards,) of God, and are justified freely by His grace through redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Him (,meaning Jesus Christ, The Son of God,) as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in His blood. He did this to demonstrate His justice, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand (,that is all people living from Adam and Eve of the old Testament up to Christ death,) unpunished – He did it to demonstrate His justice (,and mercy for that matter,) at the present time, so as to be just (,or justified,) and the One Who justified those who have faith in Jesus.”
It is written: Isaiah 64:5-7
“You are indeed angry, for we have sinned- In these ways we continue; and we need to be saved. But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is no one who calls on Your name, Who stirs himself up to take hold of You; For You have hidden Your face from us, and have consumed us because of our iniquities.”
Works is not good enough, to enter the kingdom of Heaven. As the Word of God is getting at, that non are good enough to enter the kingdom of heaven, including myself But it is by faith in Christ that we become righteous in God’s sight, for Christ’s blood cloth’s those in righteousness who believe.
“I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
There is no one on the face of the earth, of all religions since the dawning of time to today, has ever proclaimed this, and never will, (in exception to the antichrist who will proclaim this.) For he will proclaim to be God according to: Ezekiel 28:1-3, to deceive every tribe, tongue and nation as the devil possibly can in the last days. It has already started to happen. And the reason being, is that man, (Meaning humanity,) is not naturally spiritual. If man were, then all would have known that God the Father sent His Only Begotten Son, Lord Jesus Christ, into the world. To die for our sins and be raised back to life on the third day. To give us ever lasting hope, and ever lasting life, and all would except that.
Man is Naturally born sinners. We are all sinners, not because we sin, but because of the sin nature in us all, that causes us to sin greatly against the LORD. Where does this sin nature come from? Where was it’s origin? Adam and Eve: Genesis 3. All are born into this sin nature. This is what is called by God first, then man proclaimed the New covenant according to: Jeremiah 31:31-37, (I encourage you to read this passage of scriptures to understand what God Almighty had proclaimed hundreds of years prior to Christ Jesus’ birth.) For the New Covenant by God the Father Himself proclaimed what the old Covenant could not do completely, that is to make one righteous. For The Old Covenant was only temporary. God in the beginning taught man that there has to be a blood sacrifice in order to make one righteous in the sight of God: Genesis 3:20&21. After Adam & Eve had consciously decided to sin the one sin God commanded them not to. (I also encourage you to read for yourself Genesis 3 in order to know what we are talking about here.) So therefore the Old Covenant could not save, but made man, sin conscious. This is how God taught man what sin is according to:
“Now we know what the law say, (refer to Exodus 20, for the summed up 600 hundred laws or more that God gave to all humankind on the face of the earth in the Old Testament, the 10 commandment sums them all up. Jesus also taught how to fulfill the law in: Mathew 5:17-20, pertaining to the relevance of the law today and Mathew 7:12, how we must fulfill the law as Christians.) it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in the sight of God by observing the law, rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.
Which was the point of the law to begin with. (Remember the apostle Paul who wrote this through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, was a devout, zealous Pharisee, a teacher of the law, as well as his other family members before him. And in fact he tried to reject the gospel message by, approving the death’s of the early Christians in the first century church, after Christ’s resurrection.) God the Father and Creator was teaching man then, what sin is, and the sacrifice that God commanded man to make for the atonement of sin in the Old Covenant, which was a temporary fix then, points to the New Covenant that is in Christ Jesus, WHO IS THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB OF GOD, through whom God is well pleased.
This is truly the hope God had given to all mankind. This is the only way to Heaven. To have faith that Jesus came into this world by the virgin birth, in the flesh. Died for our sins, transgressions, and iniquities. And risen from the dead on the third day, and sits at the right hand of God Almighty. We do not believe and serve a dead God, but the One true living God; God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit. With that being said, the Lord destroyed Mankind on the face of the earth before, and the only people God has saved was Noah and his family, 8 in all. To start life all over again according to: Genesis 6;7;8. Why did God Almighty do this?
“The LORD saw how great man’s (,meaning Humanity,) wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved that He made man on the earth, and His heart was filled with pain. (Pain? The LORD can feel? Yes, for we were created in the image and likeness of God, found in: Genesis 1:27 &2:7. The emotions humanity has, the Lord also has as well.) So the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth-men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and the birds of the air -for I am grieved that I have made them.”
And so He did by a global flood as you read further in that chapter.
