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 coming 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.

MEANING ABOUT BELIEF 
By R. DeWitt

The Holy Bible speaks much about believing, as do most religions, and most people in the world also speak about believing something. There is often much not said or explained about the word: "believing", so we are often not sure what is meant when one says he believes.

Does one believe in God?  "...Devils also believe and tremble..." (James 2:19), but they won't be saved and go to Heaven. Believing is necessary, but God explains belief by saying, we must "believe to the saving of the soul" (Heb.10:39), which means receiving His salvation ---the Lord Jesus, "...the Christ of God" (Luke 9:20; John 1:10-14). Therein is life eternal.

Believing, in common usage, also means to simply allow something is so, because it seems plausible and there is no consequence to it either way. There is, however, CONSEQUENCE to not believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and trusting Him daily (see John 3:36). Here is a helpful paper to answer THE ETERNAL QUESTION: 

- What Can You Believe? - 
"Some people believe one thing and some believe another concerning life, death, and eternity. Some people believe religion has the answers, and some believe science is our hope. Some people believe life just happened and death is the end, and some don't know what to believe.

"Consider man's relentless search for meaning to life and for relief from his anxieties through sensual experiences and numerous philosophies. Consider the social unrest, uncertainty, and utter despair of many people. Then consider the peace, the joy, and the eternal hope God gives in His Son---that which man so desperately seeks in every other way.

  'God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life;
  and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life' (I John 5:11-12).

"There are many of us who have been glad to find that God has not left man to wander, wonder, and worry. We have read in His Word of His promises and we believed them. We received His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, into our hearts by faith, and found to our great joy that is is all true and real---the reality of salvation in Christ --a personal relationship.

  'Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under heaven given
  among men, whereby we must be saved' (Acts 4:12).

"God's salvation is a Person. Do you know Him? Do you want to know Him?  'God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life' (John 3:16).   'For all have sinned' (Rom.3: 23). 'There is none righteousness, no, not one' (Rom.3:10). 'Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God' (Acts 16:31)".

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?"  - from Echoes Of Grace Hymns. 

 The Word of God says: "...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord"   (Rom.6:23).    - -RLD : RG11; 2005; add: 07/19
