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 herein below on this page. .   

Redemption speaks  of being  rescued (saved) and reconciled to God, who paid a great price for us IF we will NOW receive it; 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".  Will you receive the Lord Jesus?
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 14; 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 all), 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. ---truly something to seriously think about!

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).

THE BIG PICTURE
Thoughts On Origin & Man's Course: By R.L.DeWitt

As we look at the biblical picture concerning mankind in the Holy Bible, we might begin to understand what our Creator-God is saying to His people for their good; and as His children He seeks their good by revealing Himself to them and showing how our life began on earth and has developed. When we then see that we are the 'children of God' in His creation, which we first can learn in Genesis 1 and 2 and 3 (though mankind is mostly not acknowledging that by the deceit of our enemy: Satan) one can learn that Satan, who was present from the beginning and began right-away to make self like God was cast out as the rebellious 'fallen angel'. He, who was more perfect in formation than other Angels, was proud and difficult to manage or yield to God, so was expelled (and he gathered other Angels to him ---who became as 'demons': allowed by God). He is somewhat a type of all rebellious man today who live badly, cause harm and oppose God.

We might thus begin to see man's origin, works of Satan to oppose God, exalting of self in opposition to God; and God's use of him to tempt and prove man (who fell in sin in the Garden at Eden). Since man had disobeyed God (as God well knew he would by having an independent spirit, He let Satan try man to teach man to turn to God always and trust Him; but man often likes the ideas and schemes of Satan so ignores God ---a bad and dangerous course. 

Certainly God's laws, standards, principles, instructions are still valid. The laws for Israel in the beginning of God's promises to man, were later fulfilled in Jesus -the Christ of God who says:  "them that honor Me, I will honor". If real "born again" Christians (as John 3 shows) seek to honor God they will regard His standards.  

Israel of old (and much today) failed to listen to the Prophets and rebelled as enjoying their status as Israelites, and in time killed their Messiah --Jesus Christ. That religion was closed and set aside now and until the time AFTER the Church is 'raptured' up to Heaven ---"in a moment in the twinkling of an eye"; and Jesus then comes again and reigns on earth with His 'bride' --the Church, for a thousand years --the Millennium, as was intended when He came before.
Israel as God's earthly people will then be restored by the Covenant He made with them ---a NEW people; and they will be His earthly people. Jesus will then take His "bride" --the Church, with Him again as He returns to Heaven. There will be an earthly people --the new Israel, and a heavenly people --Christ and His Bride forever.

Today if one is not part of the Bride of Christ ---"born again" (John 3; John 14) by faith in the Lord Jesus, they will NOT be saved for Heaven (including professing Israelites today). That is the plain picture in brief!
