Man is a Sinner – Romans 3:23
Man is a Sinner – Romans 3:23
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 KJV).
Why did Jesus Christ die on the Cross, buried, and resurrect the third day? “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21 KJV). Jesus Christ was revealed in the flesh to die on the Cross for all sin (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day to show all mankind that the payment for sin has been paid in full: IT IS FINISHED! Jesus Christ died on the Cross, buried, and resurrected because all men have sinned!
I have heard individuals say; they don’t sin. Well, they are liars and deceive themselves because everyone is a sinner. The reason I know everyone is a sinner is they will die one day. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12 KJV). All sin is deserving of death; all sin is mortal. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 KJV). All mankind is a sinner and deserves to die physically and spiritually; be eternally separated from our Father and Jesus Christ in Heaven.
For a person to be saved, they must believe: believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sin, burial, and resurrection. If they believe, they will die a physical death; however, they will not die a spiritual death -a second death and go to Hell or Lake of Fire for all eternity. All mankind is a sinner and deserves to die physically and spiritually; be eternally separated from our Father and Jesus Christ in Heaven. However, Jesus Christ and God the Father love all mankind and this is why they provided a sin-bearer us –Jesus Christ? “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (I John 4:7-10 KJV). Jesus Christ died in our place; He paid for our sin; He was buried proofing He died for our sin; He resurrected proofing the payment for sin is paid in full. This is the Gospel of Salvation; this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is what a person must believe to be saved.
When a person dies, they will either go to Heaven or Hell/Lake of Fire, and it will because nothing they have done. Individuals go to Hell/Lake of Fire NOT because they were bad; they go to Hell because they reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ -they believe NOT in the Finished Work of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Individuals go to Heaven not because they were good nor did something: e.g., asked Jesus into their heart, surrender, submit, became a church member, confession, confirmation, communion, give money, or water baptized. Individuals go to Heaven because they believe in Christ alone for salvation. Every person will either reject Him or receive Him. “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” (John 1:12 KJV). Remember, individuals, are in Heaven because they believe the Gospel -Christ’s death payment for sin, burial, and resurrection.
Jesus Christ is sinlessly perfect; only Jesus Christ can make a perfect sacrifice for sin. “And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin” (I John 3:5 KJV). “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:10-14 KJV).
The bible is very clear how a person is “saved” and how a person is “not saved.” “Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses” (Acts 13:38-39 KJV). “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Romans 3:28 KJV). “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” (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV). “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5 KJV). “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” (Galatians 2:16 KJV). “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” (Titus 3:5 KJV). “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7 KJV).
Heaven is a perfect place. “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life” (Revelation 21:27 KJV). To get to Heaven, a person must be perfect, and every person who believes in Christ alone for salvation receives the perfection required to get to Heaven in Jesus Christ. When a person believes in Christ alone for salvation, Jesus Christ’s righteousness is put to their account. “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” (II Corinthians 5:21 KJV). “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” (Philippians 3:9 KJV).
God is a gracious God; God is a merciful God; God is a compassionate God; God is a patient God; God gives you your entire life to believe. When a person dies, they will either be seen in their sin: “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24 KJV). Or, they will die in Jesus Christ and seen as perfect as Christ: “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them” (Revelation 14:13 KJV).
Man is a sinner and deserves Hell: deserves to be eternally separated from God. However, God loves you, and this is why He provided a sin-bearer for you and His name is Jesus Christ Lord Savior. The only remedy for sin is the Blood of Jesus Christ. “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” (Revelations 1:5 KJV). The only remedy for sin is the Blood of The Lamb. “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 only remedy for sin is the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (I Peter 1:18-19 KJV). Jesus Christ saves us by His blood. “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh” (Hebrews 10:19-20 KJV). Jesus Christ paid for our sins by dying on the Cross; He resurrected the third day and now sits at the right hand of the Father, showing us the payment for sin paid in full. IT IS FINISHED!
I pray you to believe in Christ alone for salvation. “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:31 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 was revealed in the flesh for one reason, and that is 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?
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 didn’t 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 death payment for sin -death payment of past, present, and future 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, and He has already died for all your sins (past, present, and future), He was buried showing all the world He died for your sins, and He resurrected showing all the world that Jesus Christ fulfilled what the Father asked Him to do: IT IS FINISHED!
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, forward this message to them and share the greatest gift that one could ever receive.

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).
