ESSENTIAL  QUESTION  
Are you  redeemed and assured  of Heaven? 

One can know.  Study this page and the Feature pages listed to find answers, and then pray to God to show you.  See the Gospel in Brief below on this page. .   

Redemption speaks  of being  rescued (saved) and reconciled to God, who paid a great price for us; and it tells of great blessings in Christ, and eternal hope with Him and in His glorious reign as "King of kings, and Lord of lords".  
Redemption Way is about  heaven and hell;  also salvation of the soul;  assurance of eternal life; blessing;  judgments;   man's course;   the Lord's sacrifice, kingdom reign, glory, and purposes, etc.  Such papers are posted here at times.  Contact the Site Manager for further information on these subjects.  

"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" (John 3:36)

THE  GOSPEL IN   BRIEF
Understanding The Blessing

A  Few  Verses  To  Consider:  God is holy (Psa.145:17),  and no sin can  come into His presence (Hab. 1:13).   Man is born in sin so needs a new (spiritual) birth  (Psa. 51:5; John 3;  Rom.3;  Rom. 5:12;  Rom.10), and he must realize that  (Lev. 10:10; I Cor. 2: 14;  Eph. 2:3).  Christ died for the un-godly (Rom.5: 6-8), rose again (I Cor. 15: 3-4),  and if one truly believes on the Lord Jesus Christ he shall be saved from all sin (Acts 16: 27-34; Heb. 10:17- 23).  There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus (Rom.8:1),  and He that possesses the Son of God is sealed by the Holy Spirit and now possesses eternal life (John 3:16, 36; I John  5: 11-13).  Isn't that nice to know?  Does the reader truly know God's Son ---the Lord Jesus Christ? (John 17:3).

REDEMPTION  WAY:
Bible  Counsel - Section B
An  Impossible  Thing
"It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted (clearly heard) of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit (being awakened by God ---'quickened' and learning of the truth of it), and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come (eternal issues), if they shall fall away (reject it), to renew them again unto repentance;  seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh (rebellion), and put Him to an open shame."   - Hebrews 6:4-6.

A songwriter has said: "If I gained the world but lost the Savior, were my life worth living for a day? Could my yearning heart find rest and comfort in the things that soon must pass away? If I gained the world but lost the Savior, would my gain be worth the toil and strife? Are all earthly treasures worth comparing with the gift of God, eternal life?"  -Echoes Of Grace Hymn.  The Word of God says: "...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Rom.6:23).

GETTING  PERSONAL  ABOUT   GOD

   When considering the gospel message of salvation according to the Christian faith by the Holy Bible, it is essential that one be personal rather than merely follow what religious voices and the general public are saying or believing. One must have a personal relationship with God to be saved from judgment and go to Heaven, which means receiving God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, into one's heart as the only Savior (1 Jn. 5: 10-12). That is the essential truth of it all, and something to be done in our "closet", as it were --–our secret place (see Matt.6:5-7).  We are not talking here about church attendance, rituals, righteous living, and good intentions. Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6).

  There is no way sinful man can develop a personal relationship with God through his own religious observances, ceremonies, reasoning and religious ideologies. He needs to have his sins washed away by the blood of Christ to be saved. Our ways are not God's ways (Isa.55:8). The salvation of God is by grace alone and that is according to His purposes and plan. If one is going to dispute John 3:16, Romans 3:10-31, 1 John 5, etc., they are far off from the path of redemption and are walking a foolish way through the bramble and brush. Their god is not the Almighty God of creation and the Bible.  Does the reader know the Lord Jesus?

  The most loving and earnest appeal of the gospel message needs to be preached and read personally from the Bible ---preferable the venerable KJV: "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation (divine sacrifice) for our sins" (1 John 4:9-10). "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" (John 3:36). May we be awakened to the urgency of the day. One needs to make it personal and receive the Lord Jesus Christ into their heart today rather than just religious doctrines of men, for tomorrow may be just too late. God says: "the time is short" (1 Cor. 7: 29).    - R. L. DeWitt, 6/08: RG05
