Stand Strong In The Lord – He Is Your Sword and Shield!
Psalm 9:9 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, When he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lightning upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
What Is Salvation?
God is truly a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. God grants His gift of salvation to those who have truly repented. When He grants His gift of salvation, you will truly feel a salvation experience. (John 3:8 Jesus teaches Nicodemus that the Holy Spirit, just like the wind, can be felt, even though we can not see the Holy Spirit) He replaces a heart of stone with a heart of love, joy, and peace.
These feelings are truly heart-felt. The Holy Spirit will reveal it to you if you have been saved. The gift of salvation is given by God, and God alone. No one can tell you that you are saved. It is an experience between you and God alone. He is the only one who knows your heart.
There is a witness (proof); God’s Spirit bears witness with our spirit when we are His children. (Romans 8:16) His Spirit will let your spirit know if you are saved. God is all-powerful and all-knowing; He doesn’t rely on someone else to tell you when you have been saved. He does it Himself! Salvation is God’s gift, through Jesus Christ, to save our souls
Ephesians 2:8-9 states “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man shall boast”.
Romans 3:23-24 states “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus”.
Ezekiel 36:26 states “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and will give you a heart of flesh”. (Also Ezekiel 11:19)
Do I Need To Repent To Be Saved?
There can be no salvation without true repentance. God looks upon your heart (soul). He expects a complete unreserved trust in Him. First you must REPENT (regret with great Godly given sorrow, to be sorry to God with much hurt inside; to ask for forgiveness); trust in the Lord with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Matthew 4:17 states “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”. Luke 15:7 states “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine persons, which need no repentance”.
Acts 3:19 states “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord”.
Acts 8:22 states “Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee”.
Acts 17:30 states “And saying Repent ye for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”. Luke 13:3 states “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish”.
God’s Mercy and Forgiveness
When you have truly repented to God, He will forgive you of all your sins. You can only truly repent if you are humble and sincere. God will give you the ability to accomplish this, if you truly desire His forgiveness. God is a merciful God. He said He will cast our sins into the sea of forgetfulness. Jesus made this forgiveness possible by dying on the cross for our sins. Through the blood of Jesus, the Christ, we are forgiven.
Exodus 34:6 states “And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, the Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth”.
Matthew 5:7 states “Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy”.
Ephesians 1:10 states “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”.
Micah 7:18-19 states “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger forever, because He delighteth in mercy… He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea”
Also, you can read chapter 17 in Luke. It tells about Jesus teaching forgiveness and also read Matthew 18:21-35. Again, Jesus speaks of forgiveness.
All throughout the Bible there is a common theme of God’s forgiveness through his son Jesus Christ. If you search with all your mind, heart, and soul, you will see the light of Jesus Christ as Forgiveness and Love through the scriptures and stories from Genesis to Revelation.
The Spirit of Jesus Christ is everywhere since everything was made through him and by him. He is the word of God. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
