All Blessings In Christ - Ephesians 1:3 KJV

All Blessings In Christ - Ephesians 1:3 KJV

All Blessings In Christ - Ephesians 1:3 KJV

 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3 KJV). 

 

Praise God for all the spiritual blessings a child of God receives in Christ. A child of God is an individual that has come to Christ by faith: believes in His Finished Redemptive Work at Calvary (His death for their debt of sin to be saved from Hell to Heaven all received by faith in Christ alone). 

 

Every blessing a believer receives from Heaven is received the second they trust in Christ alone as their only hope of going to Heaven and not going to Hell. The second a person trusts in Christ alone, they immediately receive all the blessings from their Father in Heaven. These are some of the blessings received in Christ alone: 1. Born again; 2. Forever a child of God; 3. Sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise; 4. Grow in grace; 5. Be a witness for Christ; 6. Earn rewards; 7. Glorified body; 8. Rule and reign with Christ. 

 

Every child of God is born again, born into God’s family. Every child of God gets a new nature, a sinless nature, a spiritual nature from God. The flesh is the sin nature. When a child of God dies, their sinful nature dies (the flesh dies), and their new nature (sinless nature) is absent from the body and present with the Lord. 

 

Every child of God that comes to Christ by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone is forever a child of God. Nowhere in the Scriptures is a child of unborn, reborn, unborn, and reborn. Once a child of God, forever a child of God because Christ paid for all their sins. 

 

Every child of God is sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise, guaranteeing their inheritance into Heaven. The Holy Spirit not only seals every believer in Christ until the Day of Redemption, marking them as a child of God. The Holy Spirit indwells every child of God. 

 

Every child of God grows in grace in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, come to do the will of the Father because He loved the Father, which teaches every child of God to demonstrate their love by doing their Father’s will. Every child of God can be an obedient child of God or disobedient child of God; however, they are forever a child of God. 

 

The Father’s will is for every child of God to speak of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God. Every child of God should be sharing The Gospel of Christ (Christ died for all the sins of mankind, He was buried, and He resurrected the third day showing all mankind that He, Jesus Christ, paid for all sin and freely gives eternal life as a gift to anyone that comes to Him by faith alone). It is God’s desire for His children to grow up in Christ and speak the testimony of Christ Jesus, the Savior of the world.

 

At the Judgement Seat of Christ, God will reward every child of God. God will reward them for their labor of love, their work of faith, and their patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

Every child of God will receive a glorified body one day. All believers will receive a body, a glorified body, that will never die, never hurt, never be susceptible to illness again. We will be like Him when we see Him. 

 

Every child of God will rule and reign with Christ for one thousand years on earth. Every child of God is a saint. All the saints will return with Christ at His second advent and will rule and reign with Him. 

 

These are some of the blessings a believer receives in Christ alone. However, these blessings are only received when a person trusts in the Gospel of Christ. After reading this information, every person should be asking, “how important is the Gospel of Christ” because if it were not for the Gospel of Christ, we would not experience NOT ONE of these spiritual blessings. 

 

The Gospel of Christ is all-important. The Gospel of Christ is everything. The Gospel of Christ is how every child of God is saved: by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. The Gospel of Christ teaches every believer to live by grace. If it were not for the Gospel of Christ, we would not understand love, grace, mercy, peace, compassion, patience, yielding, etc. 

 

To be clear, we need a definition of “The Gospel of Christ” so everyone knows exactly what we are discussing. The Bible defines the Gospel of Christ. “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV). The definition from above comes directly from the Word of God. Praise God for His Word! Praise God for His definition! Praise God for His meaning! And, praise God for His clarification! 

 

The Gospel is Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day to show us the payment for sin is paid in full. The Gospel of Christ is the Gospel that SAVES! If there is no Gospel, there are no spiritual blessings. It is all about the Gospel of Christ. 

 

Let us list some of the spiritual blessings a child of God receives the very second they trust in Christ alone for salvation. If you can think of more, add them to the comments below. Or, email us at thegoodnewsvoice@gmail.com. Please add the blessing that is received in Christ and the verse that references the blessing. 

 

Every child of God has been born again: born of a new nature, a spiritual nature, born from above, born from God, born as a child of God. 

  • John 1:12-13: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

 

Every child of God receives a spiritual nature from God that does not sin. 

  • I John 3:9: Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

 

Every child of God still has the old nature, the sinful nature until they physically die. When a child of God physically dies, they are separated from the sinful nature, they are absent from the flesh body (sin nature) and present with the LORD!

  • Romans 7:15-20: For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

  • II Corinthians 5:8: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

  • Galatians 4:4-6: but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

 

Every child of God is grafted into the Body of Christ and becomes part of the Church.

  • I Peter 2:4-5: To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

  • Colossians 1:18: And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

  • Ephesians 5:30: for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

  • I Corinthians 12:12-13: For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

 

Every child of God is sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise. 

  • II Corinthians 1:22: who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

  • Romans 8:9-11: But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

 

Every child of God has been washed in the Blood of Christ. 

  • Revelation 1:5: and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.

For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

 

Every child of God is sanctified -set apart in Christ the Christ. 

  • Hebrews 10:10: By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

 

Every child of God has been purchased, bought with a price.

  • I Corinthians 6:19-20: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

I am sure this is just a shortlist of some of the blessings received in Christ. Again, if you think of any blessings, please email me at thegoodnewsvoice@gmail.com

 

If you have never received Jesus Christ as Savior, what is stopping you right now from accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior?  In your mind, you can say something, "I don't know everything; however, I know I am a sinner. I know I do not want to go to Hell when I die. I want to go to Heaven when I die. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for ALL my sins (past, present, and future), buried for me, and resurrected for me." 

 

There is no confirmation, confession, communion, water baptism, church, pastor, priest, religion, or any good deeds that will pay for sin. The Christ, the Lamb of God was revealed in the flesh to take away the sins of the world. “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29 KJV). 

 

The payment for sin is death. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 KJV). Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins. “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22 KJV). 

 

Trust in Jesus Christ as your only hope to save you from a Hell you deserve to a Heaven you do not deserve because only the Gospel of Christ can change your eternal destiny from eternal darkness to eternal light. "Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins" (Colossians 1:13-14 KJV). 

 

Receive Jesus Christ as your Savior today and be born again and forever a child of God. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:12-13 KJV). 

 

The very second you place your faith in Christ alone, you receive eternal life, and you forever have eternal life because Christ paid for all your sins. When a person trusts in Christ alone for salvation, that person can "know" they are going to Heaven when they die because the Bible says they can "know." "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God" (I John 5:13 KJV).  

 

THE PLAN OF SALVATION - THE GOSPEL

 

The Gospel is Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day to show us the payment for sin is paid in full. 

  • I Corinthians 15:1-4: Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

 

God loves you. Lord Savior Jesus Christ revealed Himself in the flesh for one reason: to save us from our sins.  Jesus Christ does not come to condemn individuals.  Jesus Christ comes to save us because we are all Hell doomed sinners without the Blood of Jesus Christ.

  • John 3:16-18:  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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

All individuals are sinners. The payment for sin is death.

  • Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

  • Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Christ died for your sin and resurrected for you.

  • II Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  • I Corinthians 15:3-4: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

 

If you believe in Christ alone, you receive eternal life.

  • John 6:47: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

  • I John 5:13: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

If you could be "saved" by being water baptized, doing good works, being a good person, or following the Ten Commandments? Why did (the God from Eternity Past, the God from Eternity Future) the Ever Presence Jesus Christ reveal Himself in the flesh and die on the Cross and resurrect the third day?  No church can reconcile. No sacrament can save. No work or tradition of men can redeem. Only Jesus Christ can save a person from a Hell they deserve to a Heaven they do not deserve -all by grace!

  • Galatians 2:21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

 

If you could earn salvation by doing those things, then Jesus Christ died in vain. However, Jesus Christ did not die in vain. Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice for sin. He is the Lamb of God, and only the Lamb of God can make a perfect sacrifice for sin. There is only one way to Heaven, and it is the belief in the Finished Redemptive Work of Jesus Christ.

  • Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  • Philippians 3:9: And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.

  • Galatians 2:16: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

  • Titus 3:5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.

 

The resurrection is proof God the Father accepted Jesus Christ's death payment for sin -death payment of past, present, and future sin: ALL SIN!

 

People DO NOT go to Hell because they are "bad." People go to Hell because they believe NOT the Gospel of Jesus Christ. People trust NOT in Jesus Christ as their Savior. People believe NOT Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sins, burial, and resurrection. People do NOT trust alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ.

  • II Thessalonians 1:8-9: In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.

 

Know that God is gracious to you.  He has already died for all your sins (past, present, and future), He was buried for you showing all the world He died for your sins, and He was resurrected for you, showing all the world that Jesus Christ fulfilled what the Father asked Him to do: IT IS FINISHED! Your sins are paid in full. I pray you to believe in Jesus Christ right now for salvation -believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sin, burial, and resurrection. Trust alone in Jesus Christ as your Savior. If you know someone who is "not saved," share the Gospel message with them or forward this message to them.

Once Saved, Always Saved: "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one" (John 10:28-30 KJV).
