You're listening to search the scriptures daily a radio ministry of the Brian call.
Now, our next segment understanding, the scriptures, we continue our exploration of the doctrine of salvation, with more about the consequences of rejecting God's offer. Here again are Dave one at T-A-MC man, in our ongoing review of the Gospel we noted last week, wow, there are wonders, blessings connected with the salvation which Christ alone provides. There are both conditions and consequences. John 316: 318-336, tell us that those who will not believe in Jesus will perish are condemned already will not see life, and will suffer the wrath of God, Jesus himself gives many descriptions of the consequences of rejecting God salvation being cast into outer darkness into a fiery furnace the lake of fire, and everlasting fire where there will be wailing weeping mashing of teeth unto everlasting destruction and those are not teachings of Jesus that are promoted in many Christian circles today, but they are indeed His teachings, they hardly indicate that God is going to unconditionally accept everyone into heaven.
Nevertheless, the scriptures tell us that it is his desire, that all received His salvation.
It's just so amazing that God loves us. And you mentioned John 36, you were giving the perishing side of it, but John 316 begins as most everyone listening probably know. That's the first verse you learned in Sunday school for God.
So I loved the the world and it's because of God's love that Christ die, and it's because of God's love that He wants all men to come an aide of the truth, and he's not willing that any should perish. So we have to keep emphasizing, the... This Is A, there are so many scriptures that reveals God's heart and Isaiah 45, 22, look unto me and be saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God and there is none house Ezekiel 18... 23. I have, I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die say it the Lord, not that he should return from his ways and live.
So we need to emphasize the fact that salvation has been provided by God, this is not the impersonal law of Carmen, that turns you into a bug or something, this is the God who created us, we rebelled against Him, and nevertheless, he still loved this still loves us, so God Himself through the virgin birth became a man came to this Earth, where we hear suffered was hated mocked persecuted nailed to a cross and he did it for us in our place. Not only did he take our hatred and mistreatment, and mocking sometimes Tom, I think the mocking would be the hardest thing to take. You are more than your cues. Falsely accused, "You're not guilty of it, to not speak out data in defense, this is the creator of the is in a... We can't even fathom he could have wiped us out and yet he takes all these false accusations because He took our place and we deserved it, but then he takes the judgment that his own infinite justice required against and what that is, Tom, I can't even imagine we would suffer for eternity separated from Him because God's justice is infinite. The penalty must also be infinite, and Christ took that infinite penalty. The horror and now we're forgiven. If we will accept his forgiveness and yet if we don't, the consequences are very serious.
That's why He suffered because the consequences are serious and those that refused to accept His suffering in their place, it is a steel have to endure that forever, and to them. I can't say any anyone would reject Christ. Is it pride? We don't want to admit we're sinners, we don't want to admit that when he took our place he had to accept the judgment of God, that we deserve. We don't wanna accept a free gift from God, we wanna do something, we don't wanna be indebted to him or we wanna show that we can live often, I think, to that repentance even of our sins, is not genuine repentance. We get on our knees. And let's say that I got angry with my wife and said something that I shouldn't have said, Which, by the grace of God never happens.
Okay, I couldn't even remember when it happened, but let's say that I did that.
I get on my knees and I say I'll go on, sorry, I'd blew up. And I said some things I shouldn't have said That's not repentance, to...
I wouldn't have said that. Had I not been disobedient, and rebellious in my heart, if I had been walking with the Lord If Christ had really been my life, my love, my joy and living His life through me, as He is supposed to.
I wouldn't have blown up at my wife and said, these bad things but I haven't confessed that. In other words, I hope people are understanding what I'm trying to say. I've confessed to symptoms, I haven't confessed the disease.
Basically what I said I... Oh God, I move it, but give me another chance, and I'll show you. I'm not really so bad, I'll do better next time, now I need to confess the Lord I have turned away from you and self-was on the throne, and I was living for self in control of my life and I had forgotten you and your love and your grace and you were not really living through me as you should be because I had taken the throne of my life and was living for so that's what I need to confess this ten I confess the symptoms. But anyway, for those out there, so that they don't misunderstand. We're talking about our relationship with Christ and walking in obedience to Him to do His will and His pleasure. These are Christians, right? Not for salvation, right?
Not confessing sins thinking that the slate is gonna be wiped clean, and then I'm gonna be able to get into heaven. This is not what we're talking about as far as confessing sin for salvation. I don't even know when I come to Christ. How old am I? 15? 45-60. different people come. I couldn't even remember every sin that I've ever committed crisis paid depend for my sins, "Forgetting those things that are behind reaching forth under that which is for before, I've become a new creature in Christ Jesus, and my past whatever it is, and my future sins whatever they may be as well by God's grace, and it doesn't mean that as Paul says, "Sally continuance that grace me about. Oh, well, now I can live anyway I want, to because now I'm saved and it's all covered by the blood of Jesus, He's paid the penalty for it, so I can just do whatever I want, that is not what the Bible teaches, and it is not the attitude of someone who is true in born again, but we do fall into sin, so we don't have to... So John rights in 1, John Eck these things right into that you not... And if not, when if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ of righteous and He's the propitiation for... And not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. So for those who have not come to Christ, He is the propitiation that is the satisfaction of God's justice, for everything that they have every time we were ever will do, but he also for the Christian, it's wonderful to know that if I fall into sin, it doesn't limit it, it doesn't say whatever it is all only up to a certain degree of center, a certain amount, and so forth. If we confess our any man sin, we have had with the Father, Jesus Christ and righteous, "If we confess our sins, He's faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Is it the Godot, God, who doesn't want anyone to perish in a ton. I often think, I don't tell God often enough. Lord, I love you tell Jesus Lord Jesus, I love you thank you for dying for my sins. We need to be doing that more frequently all day long, and that in itself will keep us from straying away from him. So, when you love, you really love them to do something that you know is please them.
Well, if your heart is there, that's very difficult in the face of that to reject that person. If you say, "If I can just quickly in a few seconds, tell you roof. And I you mind year wife room. We met at UCLA, we've been married for 50 years, coming up here, so I remember it, we were engaged, and I remember on it, I was visiting her where she was staying, and it was a wall between us.
