1. Sin Separates Us from God
(Genesis 3:22-24; Psalm 14:2,3; 59:2; Isaiah 59:1,2;
Romans 3:10-12,23; 11:32; Ephesians 2:11,12; Galatians 3:22...)
The Temptation and Fall of Man (Genesis, Chapter 3)
- “Genesis 3:23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden
to till the ground from which he was taken.”
2 The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
3 They have all turned aside, they have together become corrupt;
there is none who does good, no, not one.
1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save;
nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable;
there is none who does good, no, not one.”
2. Human Efforts Fall Short
[ (Job 9:2; 25:4; Psalm 143:2; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 2:22;
Ezekiel 14:14; Romans 3:20, Galatians 5:4*)
and Psalm 49:6-9; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5a...]
“…the redemption of their souls is costly…” – (Psalm 49:8)
6 Those who trust in their wealth and boast in the multitude of their riches,
7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
nor give to God a ransom for him—
8 For the redemption of their souls is costly, and it shall cease forever—
9 That he should continue to live eternally, and not see the Pit.
Jeremiah 2:22 For though you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap,
Yet your iniquity is marked before Me,” says the Lord God.
2.1 The Gift of God Romans 6:23; Ephesias 2:8-10
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
3. The Way to Heaven
3.1 Only One Way to Heaven: Jesus Christ
(John 3:16; 14:6; Acts 4:12;
Romans 3:22,24; 5:1-11; Ephesians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 3:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21;
Colossians 1:12-14; 1 Timothy 2:5,6; Titus 3:3-7;
1 Peter 1:18-23; 1 John 5:1,2...)
3.1.1 Jesus Christ Died for Me, for You !
(John 3:16; Romans 5:6-8; Galatians 2:20;
Ephesians 2:4-7; Titus 3:3-7; 1 John 1:7-9...)
184.108.40.206 He Died on the Cross to Set Us Free
1 Peter 1
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers,
19 but with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
220.127.116.11 Therefore, He is the One Way to Heaven
(John 14:6; 1 Peter 3:18)
