THE GIFT OF SALVATION

A good way to express how we feel or care for someone is to give them a gift. when you express your care for someone by giving to them, you are saying “I love you”. You are saying that you really cherish their friendship, you are saying they are important to you and the fact that they are in your life.

God, our Holy Father “ELOHIM”. he is The All-Powerful one and the creator of all things. Elohim is the all-powerful creator of the universe. God knows all, creates all and is everywhere at all times.

God is love. He is all love and there is no darkness in Him. He has loved us with unselfish and unconditional love.  Salvation is deliverance from sin, it is a gift from God. In salvation, we find God’s grace and mercy that will keep you from eternal death in hell. Genesis, chapter 2. “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5. And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6. But there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground. 7. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. 8. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. Jewel of Nuggets, “Elohim, our Holy Father, created the earth for man to till the soil of the ground and produce a harvest for man’s enjoyment. Man’s purpose on earth was created to glorify his maker, he was made in the image of God, and therefore his source for all thing will come from God. God created man to trust in him for his well-being, he put everything that man needed in the Garden of Eden. God has put everything that we need before us, for the table of blessing is spread before us” in His, Holy Bible. 9. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 15. And the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 18. And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him. 21. And the Lord God Caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22. And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man, and Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man Genesis, chapter 3. Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye, shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it lest ye die…….So the Bible tells us that the woman listens and did what the serpent brought before her and fell into temptation and shared the forbidden fruit with her husband, Adam”. And at that moment they fell into sin and death, and their eyes and mind were open to all kind of sins around them. At the moment sin entered their heart they lost the freedom of being in a  relationship with God the Father. Jewel of Nuggets “For in the cool of the evening, God The Father would walk through the garden and commune with them”, they now have lost that fellowship with the Father. So now man needed a savior, he needed to be saved. At that moment man died a spiritual death, Jewel of Nuggets “this seems to bring everything into spiritual focus for me, mankind became little humans, walking around with life on the outside, but inside they were dead”. Now, we need help, we need to be delivered from our sins. “Help us, O God of our salvation,  for, the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake”. Man needs salvation, man needs a covering that will wash away his sins. Forgiveness of sin is the only way the man can have a relationship with Almighty God. Now there needed to be a sacrifice, a blood sacrifice to cover sin, and God no longer had an interest in the blood sacrifice of animals, bulls, and goats, “In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure”. (Hebrew 10:6) so what was God to do, a blood sacrifice was needed to forgive sins, so a Loving  God gave the best gift, and the only sacrifice that sufficed God was his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, the perfect sacrifice, the sinless sacrifice.  “Jewel of Nuggets “What a mighty God we serve”. God” Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O’ God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second”. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. (John 3:16). So man needs a savior because he is lost and needs to be saved. Because God is Love, he is Holy and righteous, his wrath is against All sin, wickedness, and evil. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden and destroyed the perfect world God had created for man, and for the man to be in Constance fellowship with him, God was angry and cursed man back to the dirt of the earth from where he came. Therefore every man who enters the earth by the womb of a woman is born a sinner, and need salvation in Jesus Christ. But God’s Love prevailed over it All. The All – Knowing God saw mankind was lost and needed deliverance, so the word became flesh in Jesus Christ and came down to earth (the word became flesh and dwelled among us” John 1:14) to give salvation to man. I say unto you “For there is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinned not”. (Ecclesiastes 6:20). Sin is rebellion against God. Because man is a sinner, he chooses to do things that are out of the will of God. Jewel of Nuggets ” God the Father gave to mankind the Best Gift”, because we are a blessed people, there is life, and more abundant life in Jesus, we have peace, Joy, Love, Salvation, Forgiveness and eternal joy in heaven one day with all the angels, gathered around the throne of God. “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb”. (Revelation 22:1).

Jewel of Nuggets “Yes, O’ My Lord, I thank you for my salvation, for I know you paid the price for my sins, which I can never repay. So this I say Lord, I give myself away to your service, it is all that I can do. Thank you, Jesus.

Well, another Jewels of Nuggets for The Soul. Praise the Lord.
