1. The GOSPEL preached in the name of Jesus Christ is the POWER of God to JUSTIFY, REDEEM and establish you in EVERLASTING LIFE “For ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED FREELY by his GRACE through the REDEMPTION that is in Christ Jesus” [Romans 3:23-24] SALVATION is FREE, and many people do want to be free of SIN and RECONCILE with God but are disillusioned by religious HYPOCRISY, as it is written: “… HYPOCRITES! for ye SHUT UP the KINGDOM of heaven against men: for YE NEITHER GO IN yourselves, NEITHER SUFFER YE THEM THAT ARE ENTERING TO GO IN” [Matthew 23:13] Jesus Christ is the DOOR of ETERNAL LIFE; you will be disappointed if your eyes are on any man or religious organization, “I AM THE DOOR”, says the Lord, “… BY ME IF ANY MAN ENTER IN, HE SHALL BE SAVED, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” [John 10:9] The offer of SALVATION is PERSONAL, Jesus said “ANY MAN”; the vilest SINNER is welcome to SALVATION preached in His name. SALVATION is primarily between you and Jesus Christ, and the ball is in your court to “… WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with fear and trembling.  For it is GOD which WORKETH IN YOU both to will and to do of his good pleasure” [Philippians 2:12-13]

2. SALVATION is of GRACE, it cannot be bought or sold “For by GRACE are ye saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT OF GOD” [Ephesians 2:8] All men are born subject to SIN, and none by contemplation may deliver himself. In due season God showed up in Jesus Christ, “Herein is LOVE, not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US, and sent his SON to be the PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS” [1 John 4:10] SALVATION is the finished work of God’s LOVE; the MYSTERY of God manifest in Jesus Christ to DIE on the Cross in fulfilment of our DEBT of SIN, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, … ” [1 John 3:16] GRACE is God’s LOVE revealed in the finished work of Christ, “For God so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that WHOMSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE” [John 3:16] If we BELIEVE, not doubting, that God was in Jesus Christ to RECONCILE the world to Himself, GRACE is released for FAITH to, “… come boldly unto the THRONE OF GRACE, that we may OBTAIN MERCY, and FIND GRACE TO HELP in time of need” [Hebrews 4:16] “THRONE OF GRACE” is the Cross, SEAT of MERCY, where “To wit, GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING the WORLD unto HIMSELF, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” [2 Corinthians 5:19]

3. Proof of FAITH in Christ is REPENTANCE; if any man claims to have SALVATION but continues in SIN, he is a liar “… SHALL WE CONTINUE IN SIN, that GRACE MAY ABOUND? God forbid. How shall we, that are DEAD TO SIN, live any longer therein?” [Romans 6:1-2] REPENTANCE is not REMORSE; REMORSE is a mental reaction to guilt, REPENTANCE is heart-rending SORROW occasioned by the WORD of God, “… PIERCING even to the DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL and SPIRIT, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart“ [Acts 4:12] REPENTANCE is not without PAIN, as the WORD of TRUTH repudiates who you were and ever wanted to be, “For GODLY SORROW WORKETH REPENTANCE TO SALVATION not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death” [2 Corinthians 7:10] The more of the WORD you BELIEVE, the more the SOUL is degraded in readiness to be CONVERTED in the likeness of Christ, by the Holy Ghost. Friend, it is not enough to REPENT, you must be CONVERTED in the image of Christ, and “… EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED, and become as little children, YE SHALL NOT ENTER into the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN” [Matthew 18:3] We are CONVERTED by the Holy Ghost, the SPIRIT of Christ, that we may be established in him and CONFORM to Him, “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29]

4. SALVATION is not a SCAM or religious franchise, it is the PROMISE of God to all men, “In HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE, which God, that cannot lie, PROMISED BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN” [Titus 1:2] It has nothing to do with the lifestyle of a Pastor or shenanigans of religious charlatans; It is about your ETERNAL RELEVANCE, “REPENT ye therefore, and be CONVERTED, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of REFRESHING shall come from the presence of the Lord” [Acts 3:19] All you need God has provided, His GRACE is available if you will BELIEVE the GOSPEL, REPENT and be CONVERTED by the Holy Ghost, as it is written: “… REPENT, and be BAPRIZED every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall RECEIVE the GIFT of the HOLY GHOST” [Acts 2:38] Are you BORN AGAIN and established in the Holy Ghost? Refuse to be discouraged by vicissitudes of the present world, the season of REFRESHING is so close “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he” [I John 3:2] Friend, that day is imminent, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and WORK OUT YOUR SALVATION, amen
