Three Men Died At Calvary

“And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.” Three men died the day of Jesus’s crucifixion. (1st ) Was JesusBeaten, humiliated, and unjustly convicted, Jesus Christ the Son of God in human flesh, gave his life and shed his blood as a payment for the sin debt of the entire world. There will never be a more important event in human history than the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. As a lamb sacrificed for sin upon the altar of the OT saints, Jesus willingly laid down his life and shed his innocent blood for the sins of all men upon a cross. And whether or not a man believes in Jesus Christ, his offering has made it possible for any man to be saved by simply trusting in Jesus, but unfortunately not all men will. (2nd) Unrepentant thief. Though dying himself he chose to die in his sin, rejecting the salvation of Christ, ending up in Hell. Why? (John 3:36) “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.(3rd) Repentant thief. He, rather than die in his sin, wisely chose to seek the forgiveness and help of Christ by simply repenting and asking to be saved; and because of his faith, Jesus said to unto him “today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.”  You see, its never too late to get saved while you are still alive, but once you die there is no more opportunity or hope of it. May we all like the repentant thief, have the faith and wisdom to seek salvation while there is still hope!

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
