(Read: Romans 6)
What does it mean?
Jesus lived a perfect life without sin. He was fully God but fully man when He walked this earth. He stayed in the spirit and that kept Him from sinning. And we should try our hardest to always stay in the spirit because we walk by faith and not by sight. We can be like Him because we’re made in His image. We should dedicate our lives to living for Him.
Because Jesus lived a perfect life, He was without sin. But, because He took ALL OF OUR SINS, He had to endure Hell. But, because He was so perfect, Hell basically “miscarried” Him and HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD! Hell couldn’t hold Jesus because He was not found guilty of sin of His Own!!
But, Jesus experienced Hell for us so that we wouldn’t have to. God put himself in human flesh, lived a perfect life, and went to hell just to save the world when He could’ve easily just removed sin from the world… His love for us cannot be explained or understood. (Philippians 4:7)
Here’s my point: If you knew how HOT, devastating, horrible, terrible, fearful and disgusting Hell was then, you WOULD fear the Lord Almighty, not compromise a sinful lifestyle, not tolerate sin, not support sin, not entertain sin, and you would dedicate your entire life to Him and spread the Gospel.
His Grace is a gift. A gift is something that we don’t deserve but, out of love it is given to us anyway. The sacrifice of God’s Son Jesus Christ is a gift to us! WE ALL DESERVE to spend eternity in Hell for disobeying our Creator BUT….JESUS! *praise break* NO, I do not understand how evil it is in hell and I SURELY don’t want to! But, I have a relationship with Jesus and I gave great reverence for Him. When I sin, I feel guilty and remorseful so I repent (confess then, turn completely away from sin).
This is ALL we have to do. We deserve punishment. But, God gave us a decision to choose Him (lightness) or hell (darkness.) And only a FOOL willingly chooses HELL OVER HEAVEN! John 14:6 says, There’s only 1 way to Heaven (believing John 3:16) and there’s only 1 way to Hell (not believing John 3:16). Because Jesus died for EVERYONE’S sins, we aren’t judged for our sins but what we’ve done for The Lord… That should motivate us to serve Him in everything so that we can be rewarded in Heaven!!
Grace isn’t a license to sin. Just because there’s salvation for those who believe DOESN’T mean that His people should live as if the death of Jesus wasn’t that serious… I mean… ‘The Word (Bible)’ becoming flesh (Jesus) sounds pretty serious to me. I KNOW that people look at me and think I’m crazy because I used to be a “lukewarm christian” and now I GO HARD FOR JESUS. But, it doesn’t matter what they think. They don’t know what I’ve been through and where I’m going and the gifts that I want to receive when I get to Heaven. MY WORSHIP IS FOR REAL! Jesus Christ laid down His life for me and the least I could do is live my life like I know Him… not just on Sundays but, daily.
We must not tolerate sin. It is deadly!! (Romans 6:23) Our sins deserve God’s wrath (Hell fire). But, Thank God for Jesus! Without Jesus, NONE of us will be able to stand before our Holy God covered in our sins because our darkness doesn’t mix with His lightness! Because Jesus lives in the hearts of ALL believers, God looks at our perfected spirit (Jesus) and not our sinful fleshly nature. Thank You, Jesus! We need the Body of Christ to have more GODLY FEAR! It’s evident that those who call themselves christians YET live in sin, don’t fear God and desperately lack a relationship with His SON and unbelievers can see that… EVEN demons! That’s why the demons ATTACK people that are weak in their faith lives because they aren’t fighting back! It’s a SPIRITUAL WARFARE and we must act NOW!
10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
(READ: EPHESIANS 6:10-23)
Hell is just as real as Heaven. It is not an idea, a feeling or just separation from God. It’s a place with severe darkness of all forms and even God doesn’t want a single soul to go there and He isn’t even happy when unbelievers go there (Ezekiel 33:11)… so He went there for us… That type of love cannot be explained because the limited human mind can’t understand it. God IS LOVE AND LOVE IS REAL! The devil had crept into God’s churches and are deceiving even believers claiming that Hell isn’t physical nor is it for eternity… THE DEVIL IS A LIAR! He hates us because we are made in God’s Image and the devil and demons HATE GOD so they hate us (John 15:18)! They are going to taunt unbelievers in horrifying ways for eternity… You think the devil is attacking you now… Wait until unbelievers come face to face with him in his home…. It’s the WORSE place to be!
**Those who are in Christ MUST share the Gospel. It is required of us and God will reward those who obey Him and question about us not sharing The Gospel when we arrive at His Gates… Tell every one you know about the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ coming to save the world! He conquered death so that we will NEVER have to face it if we accept Jesus into our hearts.
It’s not about US but JesUS. Think about it:
If everyone knew the gospel and had their chance to follow Jesus or not, then, maybe just maybe, Jesus Christ would’ve returned for His Church! But, his patience exceeds our understanding. He’s waiting for all to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). Because once, He returns or if you die before the time… there will be NO MERCY ONLY JUDGMENT!
Please strengthen your relationship with Christ and truly get to know Him. Live your life as if you served Him. Read your Bible and pray daily! Walk by faith and NOT by sight. Spread His love NOW! Before it’s too late and a lost person dies and goes to hell. Love your enemies. If you knew the depth of Jesus dying for our sins then, you wouldn’t even wish ‘hell’ on your worst enemy. For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
