JESUS CREATED US:
Revelation 4:11 (see also Col. 1:13-17)
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created
all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
JESUS REDEEMED US: (to set free, to save from a state of sinfulness and its
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the
seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of
every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.
SAVED FROM HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE:
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and
the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and
another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of
those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead
which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
SAVED TO RECEIVE A NEW HEAVEN AND A
NEW EARTH AND ETERNAL LIFE:
Revelation 21:4 (Read all of Revelation chapters 21 and 22)
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are
HOW DO WE ESCAPE HELL and RECEIVE
1 Peter 1:23,25
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth for ever....
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is
preached unto you.
2 Timothy 3:15-16
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee
wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they
believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the
feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ
might be given to them that believe.
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should
afterwards be revealed.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be
justified by faith.
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
THE SCHOOLMASTER / LAW:
And God spake all these words, saying,
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the
house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, ...
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, ...
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold
him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Leviticus 19:12 says "And ye shall not swear by
my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.)
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy....
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the
Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Leviticus 19:11 says "You shall
not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.")
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife,
nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is
Have you ever stolen anything?
Have you ever lied?
Have you ever coveted something of your neighbors?
Have you ever dishonored your father or mother ?
Have you ever profaned (to put to an improper, unworthy, irreverent or degrading use) God's name?
(This is just some of His law. To see some more of the commandments of God continue reading in
Exodus and read Leviticus 19. If you broke the law in just one of His commandments then you are
guilty of all: "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of
all." James 2:10)
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under
the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by
the law is the knowledge of sin.
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by
the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all
them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is
made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is
rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
JESUS SAVES SINNERS:
1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to
sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once
in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him
shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
1 Tim 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the
world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned
already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which
also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye
have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for
our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise
from the dead the third day:
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all
nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it.
But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God,
and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on
the name of the Lord.
