God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Baptism

Posted by on Aug 19, 2022 in Articles | 0 comments

And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 God’s plan always included sinner’s baptism so that they might be added to the church (Acts 2:47). This may sound like a bold statement but God has always placed a significance on water as it pertained to salvation. In the Old Testament, water was often the key element of some type of physical deliverance. In 1 Peter 3:20b, we read about the flood and how it was water that saved the faithful, “while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Confession

Posted by on Aug 12, 2022 in Articles | 0 comments

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10 Confession of Christ as the son of God is a requirement of our souls’ salvation and before a person is ever immersed in baptism, we follow the example of scripture in Acts 8:36-37 which says, “And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Repentance

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles, Brethren, what shall we do? And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:37-38 God has always demanded that men recognize and repent from sin. Jonah 3:10 states, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil which he said he would do unto them; and he did it not”. This verse really helps one...

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:30-31 For one who is lost in their sins to ever take the steps necessary to enter into a right relationship with God, he or she must have faith. Hebrews 11:6 states, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. The Phillipian Jailor of Acts 16 sets for us a wonderful example.  What he had experienced convinced him...

God’s Plan Includes His Word

 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1:16-17 The Bible is plain in making the point that God intends to communicate His will to man by the inspired Word. The faith we require is supplied through our Bibles. Romans 10:17 states, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. The Bible not only contains within it the statues that...

God’s Plan Includes Christ’s Blood

Posted by on Jul 14, 2022 in Articles | 0 comments

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:8-9 God’s plan for mankind always included the blood of Christ. From the very beginning, the shedding of blood was necessary (Heb 9:22)  and the faithful always offered sacrifices to God such as Abel (Gen 4) and Abraham (Gen 22), just to name a couple. The writer of Hebrews mentioned the necessity of continual sacrifice and shedding of blood under the Law as well (Heb 9:25). Christ’s blood is...
