What does Jesus save us from?

Discussion in 'Seeking Jesus' started by Chad, Sep 29, 2009.

  1. What does Jesus save us from?
    Matt Slick

    Jesus is the most important figure in all of human history. He is God in flesh (John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9), physically risen from the dead, Lord (Luke 24:34; John 2:19-21) and Savior (Acts 5:30-32). He came to die for sinners (Rom. 5:8) to deliver people from the righteous wrath of God upon us.

    Are you a sinner?

    I ask you, are you a sinner? Have you ever lied, stolen, lusted, coveted, or been angry with someone unjustly? If so, then you have broken the Law of God. God has said "You shall not steal; You shall not lie; You shall have no other gods before Me; You shall not murder, etc.," (Exodus 20). He has given the standard of righteousness and if you have broken any of God's commandments then you have fallen short of that standard and are under the inevitable judgment of God. When you die, you will face Him and on the Day of Judgment He will punish all sinners.

    If you do not like this teaching, then throw away your Bible and turn from Christ, for this is the message of God's word—that Jesus came to die for sinners and to save them from the wrath to come.

    Jesus is the One you need. He alone. Not your works (Rom. 3:10-12; Isaiah 64:6). Not your sincerity. Not your goodness. You have nothing to offer God except your sinfulness. It is only by the love and grace of God found in Jesus and His sacrifice that you can be delivered from the righteous wrath of God upon all who have broken His law. Jesus saves you from God.

    God's wrath on the Day of Judgment is upon sinners

    On the Day of Judgment God will judge all people for their sins against Him. He will judge all who have lied, stolen, cheated, lusted, dishonored their parents, etc. He will do this because He is holy and righteous. God must punish the sinner. God cannot and will not ignore the person who has broken His righteous law. The Law is a reflection of the character of God. Therefore, to break God's law is to offend God and deny the holiness of His character. He will be vindicated. He will judge.

    The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). That means that your sins have caused a separation between you and God (Isaiah 59:2) and the result is death (Rom. 6:23) and wrath (Eph. 2:3). The only way to be saved from the wrath of God, is to be saved from it by faith in Christ (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 5:1). You must trust in what Jesus did on the cross to forgive you of your sins and not trust anything else, not even your own sincerity or works. It is Jesus and only Jesus who can turn away the righteous judgment of God upon the sinner.

    The Gospel

    The gospel is that Jesus died for sinners on the cross, was buried, and rose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-4). His death was a sacrifice that turns away the wrath of God (1 John 2:2). This is the only way to be saved.

    Jesus is the one who died for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2). He is the only way to the God the Father (John 14;6). He alone reveals God (Matt. 11:27). He has all authority in heaven and earth (Matt. 28:18). It is only through Him that you can be saved from God's wrath (Eph. 2:3). He can forgive you of your sin (Luke 5:20; Matt. 9:2). He can remove the guilt that is upon your soul. Jesus can set you free from the bondage of sin that blinds your eyes, weakens your soul, and brings you to despair. He can do this because He bore sin in His body on the cross (1 Peter. 2:24) that those who trust in Him would be saved.

    If you are not a Christian, and want to be delivered from the righteous judgment of God upon you due to your sin against Him, then come to the One who died for the sins of the world. Come to the One who died for sinners (Matt. 11:28). Turn from your sins. Believe and trust in Jesus. Receive Jesus, who is God in flesh, who died and rose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-4) as your Lord and Savior. Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins. Receive Christ (John 1:12). Only He can wash you clean from your sins and only Jesus can deliver you from the righteous judgment of a holy and infinite God. Pray to Jesus. Seek Him. Ask Him to save you.
    He will.

    I would like to note, that the Jesus of Mormonism (the brother of the devil), the Jesus of the Jehovah's Witnesses (an angel made into a man), the Jesus of the New Age (a man in tune with the divine consciousness), etc., cannot save you from your sins. Faith is only as good as who you put it in. Only the Jesus of the Bible can do that. Jesus is God in flesh, the creator. God is a trinity and Jesus is the second person of the trinity.

    If you have prayed and asked Jesus to deliver you from your sins and save you from God's wrath, then please email us at carm and let us know.

    Chad, thank you for all your hard work in this site! I am not new to the faith, and I must give God the glory for the knowledge He shared with me thus far. Mat 11:27 It is very true what you say! It is by God's Grace alone that we are saved! Rom 5:15 And as your post says, saved from what! Even from the old person I used to be!!! 2 Cor 517 Eph 4:23 We are saved from the punishment of the sin we did!

    Ok! I am sinner, may God help me! Jesus said he came for sinners, to repent! Luke 5:32 I am one of these sinners Jesus called to repent. From what? One sin, two... or all? From all like He said in 1 John 1:9. And when am I saved, after I repented from one of my 35 regular sins? When should I stop to repent! Well Jesus says the ones that endure to the end of the sin in their lives, and to the end of their persocuted lives, they will be saved! We should not stop when we are saints, we should go on to be perfected by our Teacher, and then we will get persocution as Jesus did, and still we should endure! Mark 13:13.

    It makes sence that i would not be persocuted as a sinner, because who would persocute me then? Fellow sinners? Nope that would be a house that fights amongst themselves! and we know what that outcome is! All sinners are from the world, but the world, sinners has always hated the righteous, even if they were sinners once! Look at Paul and all the others that are in Christ! It comes with a gaurentee from Jesus!!! 2 Tim 3:12. Not a single Christian would be free from persocution!

    Or is this now the new way of life? I still sin but next time I try not to and if I do it is ok, Jesus died for my sins? Well Paul says... God forbid! Rom 6:15 We that know what sin is should not walk in the old way! Also Rom 6:16 and 17 Ok! so sin by sin I tackle my wrong doings and repent from all of them! This sounds like a cleaning process! 1 Joh 3:3 . I have to clean myself, but we know it is with His LEAD!

    Of coarse impossible to get clean without Jesus' shed blood! It is His crosswork that gets me clean! Now like a good father, after He washed me clean will He allow me to get dirty again? I think not! This I have to paste in here 1 Peter 1...
    22Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: <SUP>23</SUP>Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

    I think that is why there is a new creature in me on the other side of the cross! After I passed through the blood of Jesus, He seals me to be preserved without blemish or fault! How, by sealing me in Himself! He baptise me with the Holy Spirit! And in This Spirit there is no sin! This is our Pure religion of James 1:27

    I am made a new man, in the likeness of Jesus yet again, like Adam before the tree! The one Adam brought the bad, and the new Adam Jesus brought the Good! What a Powerful salvation He set up to all who follows Him right through Himself, into the presence of God the Father! And now my life is hid in God with Christ... Beautiful powerful Salvation! Col 3:3 Now I am reborn and actually Christ is reborn in me, and I am once again like the wind... John 3:8.

    How great is this Awesome Jesus Christ, our saviour! That He comes to live in us ! WOW!
  3. 1Pe 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

    Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  4. If God is to save us, it is from his own creations.
  5. He is in the process of recreating all things! A 100% NEW BEGINNING!
    Only those willing will be MADE A KNEW!

    GOD hates SIn and EVIL!
  6. The thread question is "What does Jesus save us from?"
