The gospel promises that Jesus kept (part 2)


This post is a part of this series

In my previous post I provided a visual image showing that actively believing what Jesus did is central to the quality of our daily life. It determines whether we walk in freedom or bondage and addiction. We can be trapped by law, sin and death, or we can be free thourgh Jesus Christ.

In that post I promised a list of scriptures to back up this claim… and here they are. I am writing these scriptures as a “thank you” prayer because we need to combine our faith with what He did

For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith. – Heb 4:2

and because we need to add our YES/AMEN to it

For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes

in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God. – 2 Cor 1:20

As you read these scriptures may I recommend you accept that you will have to slow down and dwell on these truths, letting the word of God wash you clean. Do not run through this and then run on to the next thing and the next. As Jude 1:3 says, you will have to “contend for the faith”.

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. – Jude 1:3

Before you read these scriptures, please know and understand that I KNOW that I have sinned and fallen short of God’s standards and laws. I have been divorced, sexually abused, addicted to pornography and struggled with countless other mental and spiritual and physical things.

BUT. It is BECAUSE of these reasons that reason I KNOW I need a Saviour.

In my own strength I can never ever “be holy as my Father in Heaven in holy” as Jesus commanded us to be (Matt 5:48) But now I know that Jesus Christ is that Messiah who came to save the world, came to deal with the underlying problem that the world has: we cannot stop sinning and our sin gives the devil power over us.

Jesus came as the Lamb of God to ONCE and FOR ALL to deal with sin and in that way deal with death and through that, He dealt with the power of the devil.

He is my Saviour and I am in the process of being released from everything that kept me bound. Is He your Saviour?

NOTES:

  1. These scriptures are based on the wording in the Amplified bible. If you are serious about working your way through this list, then go get an Amplified bible it will make it easier on you. 🙂
  2. I have harvested scriptures from almost all the new testament books. This is not a flaky theology. This is why He is the Saviour and this is what the Christ came to do – to set us free!
  3. Although this post focusses on faith, LOVE is equally important and must not be ignored at all. Please remember that there is a very strong connection between keeping Christ’s command to LOVE and with faith. If you keep His command he promised to reveal Himself to you. So if you truly want to know Him and behold Him and come deeply into what He has done for you, you must choose to put on love (Col 3:12, 3:14)
