An Urgent and Important Command
THE GREAT COMMISSION
Go into all the world and preach the gospel to
all creation.
Mark 1615
8
The Gospel A Message
  • The gospel is a spoken MESSAGE that is to be
    PREACHED to every person.

9
The Gospel The Power of God
  • I am not ashamed of the gospel
  • for it is the
  • power of God
  • for salvation...
  • Roman 116

10
THE GOSPEL A Message of Salvation
  • The gospel is a MESSAGE that is to be PREACHED to
    every person - a message of SALVATION.

The Gospel is Objective Truth!
11
A Serious Warning…To Christians
  • I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting
    Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a
    different gospel which is really not another
    only there are some who are disturbing you and
    want to distort the gospel of Christ.
  • But even if we or an angel from heaven should
    preach a gospel other than
  • the one we preached to you,
  • let him be eternally condemned!

Galatians 16-12 (see also Acts 2028)

POLITICALLY INCORRECT RELIGIOUSLY INCORRECT
Galatians 16-12 (see also Acts 2028)
13
Some Critical Observations
  • Any deviation from the one gospel is a different
    gospel
  • Different gospels exist today, just as then
  • Good sincere people, believers, or churches can
    teach or follow a different gospel
  • Different gospels may be taught by those with
    considerable knowledge, education, influence, or
    authority, e.g. apostles or angels
  • It is the responsibility of each individual
    Christian to discern between the one gospel and
    false gospels.
  • The gospel belongs to God, dont mess with it!

What the Holy Spirit was warning us about has
happened!
15
POLITICALLY INCORRECT NON-ECUMENICAL
  • "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord,
    did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your
    name cast out demons, and in Your name perform
    many miracles?
  • And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew
    you DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE
    LAWLESSNESS.'

Matthew 722

The Eternal Plan
Ephesians 13-6
  • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
    Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual
    blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just
    as He chose us in Him
  • before the foundation of the world,
  • that we would be holy and blameless before Him.
    In love He predestined us to adoption as sons
    through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the
    kind intention of His will, to the praise of the
    glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on
    us in the Beloved.

  • Inhabits eternity with a dominion of purity
    defined by His nature
  • Far be it from God to do wickedness, And from
    the Almighty to do wrong. .. Surely, God will not
    act wickedly, And the Almighty will not pervert
    justice.
  • Job 3410-12

24
  • There is no hint of moral evil in His nature
  • For You are not a God who takes pleasure in
    wickedness No evil dwells with You.
  • Psalms 55

25
Ps 334-5 For the word of the LORD is
upright, And all His work is done in
faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the
LORD.
LOVE
JUSTICE
  • Gods holiness is demonstrated in His justice and
    love toward His creation.

26
  • Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the LORD am
    holy and I have set you apart from the peoples
    to be Mine. Lev. 2026
  • God demands moral uprightness in His creatures
    because He is Holy!

27
A DESIRED RELATIONSHIP SPIRITUAL FELLOWSHIP WITH
A HOLY GOD
28
God exhibits an attitude of abhorrence and hatred
to all that is wrong You are of purer eyes than
to behold evil, and cannot look upon wickedness.

The Price for Sin
  • The LORD God commanded the man, saying, From
    any tree of the garden you may eat freely but
    from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
    you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat
    from it
  • you will surely die.
  • Gen 216-17
  • but from the fruit of the tree which is in the
    middle of the garden, God has said, 'You shall
    not eat from it or touch it, or you will die".

Gods Justice Demands Death as Payment for Sin
  • We find ourselves in a very desperate situation
  • We have broken the laws of the God of the
    universe, this has separated us from a Holy God,
    and the price of death hangs over our head

57
Contradiction?
(John 316) For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes
in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
(James 219) You believe that God is one. You do
well the demons also believe, and shudder.

SYNECDOCHE (sin-eck-doe-key)

59
What is Saving Faith?
WORKS ALONE (Obedience)
BELIEF ALONE (Heart)
HEBREWS 11
Action, Based upon Belief (Obedience, From the
Heart)
What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to
have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save
him? James 214
60
BELIEF ALONE? (James 214-26)
(v14) Can that type of faith save a man? (v17)
Faith without action is dead (v18) Faith is shown
by action (v20) Faith without action is useless
(v21-23) Abrahams faith was perfected by belief
working with his actions (v24) Justified by
action, not faith alone (v26) Faith without
action is dead (v19) Devils are believers!
THERE ARE BELIEVERS IN HELL!

The Chinese Language
Well known history and common everyday things
were used to make a word so people could
remember it
  • Is the oldest, continuous written language in the
    World
  • First written over 4,500 years ago
  • The inventors of the written language drew
    pictures to express words or ideas
  • Simple pictures were combined to make more
    complex thoughts

    justify the many, As He will bear their
    iniquities.

    bore the sin of many, And interceded for the
    transgressors.

100
An Undeserved Sacrifice
Romans 58-10
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in
that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us. Much more then, having now been justified
by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath
of God through Him. For if while we were enemies
we were reconciled to God through the death of
His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we
shall be saved by His life.
101
Christs Sacrifice Removes Sin
Romans 66 Our old self was crucified with
Him, That our body of sin might be done away
with.
Heb 922 …without the shedding of blood there can
be no forgiveness

of God being justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus
whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through
faith, in his blood...

Romans 68 Our old self was crucified with
Him, That our body of sin might be done away
with.
Heb 922 …without the shedding of blood there can

104
The Death of the Believer
  • It is a trustworthy statement
  • For if we died with Him,
  • we will also live with Him

2 Tim 211
died with Him
Christs death results in the death of the
believer!
105
The Death of the Believer
  • I have been crucified with Christ and it is no
    longer I who live,
  • but Christ lives in me

Gal. 220
crucified with Christ
Christs death results in the death of the
believer!
106
The Death of the Believer
  • For the love of Christ controls us, having
    concluded this, that one died for all, therefore
    all died

2 Corinthians 514
all died
Christs death results in the death of the
believer!
107
Our sins can not and will not be forgiven
UNLESS
We have died with Christ We have been united with
Christ in His death We have been crucified with
Christ We have died to sin
  • This is according to the scheme of redemption for
    without the shedding of blood
  • there is no forgiveness of sins.

108

1 Peter 224 He Himself bore our sins in His
body on the cross, that we might die to sin.

122
Christs Sacrifice Dead to sin
Dying to sin involves removing us from the
effects or consequences of sin. The only way to
be removed from the effects of sin is to have our
sins removed. The only way to have our sins
removed is by blood atonement (juducial price for
sin). The only way for the price to paid for the
sinner is by - dying with Christ - uniting
with Christ in His death - being crucified with
Christ
Heb 922 …without the shedding of blood there is
no forgiveness.

Himself the church in all her glory, having no
spot or wrinkle or any such thing but that she
would be holy and blameless.

    prevents me from being baptized?"

    heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I
    believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

    went down into the water, Philip as well as the
