But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

The Lord is Crystal Clear, there is No Halfway In-Between “You either Believe the Gospel or You Don’t

You're either saved or not

 

The majority teaching across Christendom is that if you do everything just enough, that if you do this and do that and hang on you might make it. That’s False Teaching! Scripture doesn’t teach that.

This Bible clearly states that today you are in one of two categories: You are either lost and bound for the lake of fire or you’re saved and heaven-bound to be with the Lord in glory. The Lord is crystal clear, there is no halfway in-between. You either believe the gospel or you don’t… You’re either heaven bound or hell-bound. It’s that simple, that may sound narrow and inclusive and it is because the Bible says so.

All through Scripture there are only two classes of people in the world, you’re either in Christ or you’re not, there is no halfway in-between.

So rest in what God has promised that if you believe the gospel you ARE SAVED.

Romans 8:14

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they (do we hope to be? No, we) are the sons of God.”

Faith, Sine Qua Non

“What is Not Properly Understood can “Not” be Properly Applied”

 

What Saith the Scripture?

Most problems in interpreting Bible passages arise from neglecting a passage’s context. The guiding principle of sound interpretation is to take a passage literally. Not maintaining this discipline, interpretation becomes loose and the passage can mean almost anything. The result is erroneous made up ridiculous interpretations. 

Secondly, is to read a passage in-time. The Bible is a progressive revelation. God’s plan of salvation for mankind wasn’t revealed all-at-once to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah or any of the other old testament prophets. Not even Peter and the eleven were given the full counsel of God. The Lord revealed to each of the aforementioned what they needed at their particular time in Biblical history. Interpretation that denies that Scripture is progressive is an erroneous interpretation. 

To be good bible students one must maintain a literal, grammatical and historical (in-time) hermeneutic. There has been much to much of mans theology governing Scripture when it is God’s Word alone that reigns over theology. 

Below are set of guides to help readers maintain a literal, grammatical and historical (in-time) interpretation of Scripture.

 

Z

Who's writing?

Identify the author of the book and passage.

Z

Who is the author writing too?

Who is the audience? Yes, all Scripture is for us but not all of Scripture is directed to us our salvation and doctrine (how to live our daily lives). To say all of Scripture is, is erroneous interpretation.

Z

When was the Book or Passage written?

This is necessary to identify the time and historical context.

Z

What were the circumstances when it was written? (what was going on)

Z

What was going on before and after it was written?

What happen before and after the particular Book or Passage you’re reading?

Z

What is the HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF THE VERSE?

Where does the Bible verse fit in Biblical history. Use the answers from the list of these questions to identify the “historical context”.

Z

Are there other passages that the Author has written to help expand on the verse your reading?

Z

Utilize the full counsel of God to illuminate the passage

All of Scripture fits perfectly.

 

The Good News

salvation

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9
