In this world today, there are two kinds of men: the man that is born again, the child of God; and the man that is not born again, the child of the devil. Beyond physical features, you must understand that people are primarily different based on the nature or kind of life that is inside of them. There are basically two kinds of families on earth: the family of God and the family of Satan. When man fell by transgression in the Garden of Eden, man’s nature transmuted, and he then became a child of the devil. If man’s nature didn’t transmute or change, there wouldn’t have been a need for a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:3). By nature, the unbeliever is a child of the devil and that is why the unbeliever needs to be born again. To be born again is not to be converted from one religion to another. It is more than a change of mind or being repentant. To be born again is to be born anew; to have a new nature, a new life, become a new being. It is not converting from one religion to another; it is becoming a child of God from the inside. When you get born again, you become a child of God with the nature or life of God. You cease to be a child of Satan; you cease to have the nature or life of sin.
Anyone who does not accept Jesus before exiting the scene from this earthly realm is hell-bound! That’s what the Word of God says. Hell is an eternal prison for eternal rebels, who have rejected God and His grace to them. If any man goes to hell, it is as a result of his choice. It will be that he actually chose hell. The only way not to go to hell is to believe in Jesus Christ as the One that died for your sins and was raised from the dead for your justification; and to also confess Him as Lord of your life. Romans 10:9 tells us “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.” Salvation is man’s escape from hell and entry into God’s abundant life in Christ. Faith reposed absolutely in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is what is required to enter into the kingdom of God. The loving arms of the Lord are wide open to any sinner who will come to Him. He will in no wise cast them out! If any sinner will come to Jesus, He will receive the gift of eternal life; he will be saved and safe. Beloved, as a believer, it is your responsibility to preach the gospel today and every day. There is urgency to preach this message! You can stop a sinner from going to hell; you can save a soul from plunging head long into hell. Preach the gospel today!
My Solid Front (Your Confession):
Thank You Heavenly Father, for I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. I am saved and safe. Glory to God, I am heaven bound and I will take as many people with me as I can, winning souls for the Lord in Jesus Name. I declare that I am a soul winner!
