ETERNAL LIFE

WHAT MUST YOU DO TO ENTER ETERNAL LIFE?

IT IS ALL ABOUT FAITH , LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNES/HOLINESS

FAITH

Believe the word of God -the Bible

Believe that God prepared a body for Jesus, Who is an almighty Spirit , who came down from heaven to come into this world.

Heb_10:5  Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;

Heb 10:7  Then I said, ‘Here I am–it is written about me in the scroll– I have come to do your will, my God.'”

THE REASON JESUS CAME INTO THIS WORLD OF SIN AND DEATH IS TO TELL AND TO SHOW THE PEOPLE THAT GOD THE FATHER IS REAL AND TAUGHT THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY MUST DO TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.( You will find the history of creation and mankind written in the Bible , the Word of God.)

IT IS NOT EASY TO JUST “BELIEVE “ BUT IT WILL HELP TO UNDERSTAND WHAT “ FAITH” IS

Faith is a decision you make to believe in something what you do not see and  something you cannot understand or sort out with your human mind.” , you need to “water it” so that it could grow. It means that by living by faith and doing things in faith will make your faith to grow stronger.

The beginnig of faith is very small, “ smaller than a mustard seed”

Mat_17:20  He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Mat_13:31  He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Mar 4:20  Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop–some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”

BELIEVE THAT GOD EXISTS :Heb_11:6  And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

YOU CANNOT SEE GOD :Heb 11:1  Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Heb 11:2  This is what the ancients were commended for.

Heb 11:3  By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

BELIEVE THAT JESUS EXISTS . Joh_20:31  But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

YOU CANNOT SEE JESUS: Two thousand years ago, the people could see Jesus for a little while . But since God raised Him from the dead and He was taken up to be with God again in heaven you cannot see Him any more and you must believe those who were with Him while He was in this world and who wrote everything down about Him and the written Word of God is known as the Bible . Your decision to believe that Jesus came from heaven , that He was killed by the unbeliever and was raised from the dead by God and that He is sitting at the right hand of God on His throne , was all you had to do to get saved . But that was only the beginning of your new life in Jesus. Now you must live your life by faith and obeying the commands of God and Jesus as you will find in the Bible.

YOU CANNOT SEE HOLY SPIRIT…

We could rejoice because we are not alone in this world , Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with us and in us to guide us through this life

Joh_14:16  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—

Joh 14:17  the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

Joh_14:26  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Joh_15:26  “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father–the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father–he will testify about me.

Joh_16:7  But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Joh 3:6  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

Joh 3:7  You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’

Joh 3:8  The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

The growing of your faith comes from your obedience , it is obeying the commands in the Word of God.

Rom_1:5  Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake.

Rom_16:26  but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from faith–

2Co_10:15  Neither do we go beyond our limits by boasting of work done by others. Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our sphere of activity among you will greatly expand,

2Th_1:3  We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.

1Co_16:13  Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

GOD WANTS US TO BELIEVE IN JESUS AND TO OBEY JESUS BECAUSE JESUS KNOWS WHAT WE MUST DO TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

Joh_6:29  Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

Joh_12:44  Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.

Joh_3:36  Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

Eph_5:6  Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.

Joh 12:44  Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.

Joh 12:45  The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me.

Joh 12:46  I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

Joh 12:47  “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

Joh 12:48  There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

Joh 12:49  For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.

Joh 12:50  I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”

Mat_28:20  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

RIGHTEOUSNESS

YOU MUST BE RIGHTEOUS/HOLY TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.YOU GOT SAVED BY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS BUT YOU MUST LIVE A RIGHTEOUS LIFE TO KEEP YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. WHEN YOU SIN, YOU LOSE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND YOU HAVE TO CONFESS YOUR SIN AGAIN ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS. THE LORD WILL FORGIVE YOU, BUT YOU CANNOT KEEP ON SINNING. DON’T MOCK THE LORD YOUR GOD.

Mat 13:41  The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.

Mat 13:42  They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 13:43  Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Mat_13:49  This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous Mat 13:50  and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat_25:46  “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Eze 3:17  “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

Eze 3:18  When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 3:19  But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

Eze 3:20  “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 3:21  But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.”

Eze 18:20  The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE YOU MUST LIVE IN LOVE, FORMING  A UNITY WITH GOD AND JESUS WHO ARE LOVE, OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS COMMANDS AND THE COMMANDS OF JESUS SO  THAT THEY COULD LIVE IN YOU AND YOU IN THEM IN FAITH AND LOVE

Col_3:14  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

1Ti_1:5  The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

Eph_6:23  Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Col_1:5  the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel

Joh_13:35  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Gal_5:6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Joh_14:15  “If you love me, keep my commands.

Joh_14:21  Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

Joh_14:23  Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

Joh_14:24  Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

Joh_14:31  but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. “Come now; let us leave.

Joh_15:9  “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

Joh_15:10  If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

Rom_12:9  Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Rom_13:10  Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Eph_3:17  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

Mar_12:30  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

Mar_12:31  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

1Th_5:8  But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.

1Ti_1:14  The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

1Co_13:2  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

1Co_13:13  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Gal_5:6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

1Th_3:6  But Timothy has just now come to us from you and has brought good news about your faith and love. He has told us that you always have pleasant memories of us and that you long to see us, just as we also long to see you.

1Th_5:8  But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.

2Th_1:3  We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.

1Ti_1:5  The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

1Ti_4:12  Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

1Ti_2:15  But women will be saved through childbearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

1Ti_4:12  Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

1Ti_6:11  But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.

Tit_2:2  Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.

Tit_3:15  Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.

Phm_1:5  because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus.

Rev_2:19  I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

Mat_24:12  Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,

1Co_13:4  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

1Co_13:6  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

1Co_13:8  Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1Co_13:13  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Eph_5:2  and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Php_1:9  And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,

Php_2:2  then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.

Col_2:2  My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,

Col_3:14  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

1Jn 2:4  Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.

1Jn 2:5  But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him:

1Jn 2:6  Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
