The Gift of God

By: David M. Curtis

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

 Salvation: Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone!

Justification by Faith

By: David M. Curtis

Once the promise that God will not impute sin” against him is accepted by the sinner, God begins to keep His promise, by ceasing to “take an inventory” of his sins. That truly is good news!

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Hebrews 8:12

 

Sanctification, A Finished Work of the Cross

By: David M. Curtis

In a judicial sense “sanctification” happens the moment the repentant sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Judicially “sanctification” & “perfection” is a finished work of the Cross, and has nothing to do with our own good behavior. We are judicially Sanctification and Perfected in the sight of God once and for all through faith in Jesus broken body and spilled blood, not by the individuals own good works performed over a lifetime!

By the which will we are (present tense) sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE FOR ALL! But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; (This emphasizes His FINISHED work.) For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Hebrews 10:10,12,14

 

The Seal of God

By: David M. Curtis

From what the Bible does say we can be certain as born again Christians we have it! It is not a future happening exclusively, since in the first century Paul was telling the churches they already had the seal.

YE ARE (present tense) SEALED unto the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30

 

The Book of Life

By: David M. Curtis

Before the world was made God predestined men to be saved. He wrote our names in the Book of Life. The Book of Life demonstrates God knew each of us by name before we were born.

Throughout this worlds history all of mankind has been given the choice to either accept their Creator, or to reject Him. God “is not willing that any should perish but that all men should repentance.” When men reject His invitation to accept His mercy, they compel their Loving Father in Heaven to blot their names from this Book of Life. God has predestined us to eternal life, but he has given us the choice whether we will decide follow Jesus and  keep our names in the Book of Life or choose our own ways and have our names removed..

Forgiveness of Sins Past, Present, and Future

By: David M. Curtis

Christ gives us complete assurance of salvation. In Jesus, we can rest from all fear of ever being lost. We may completely trust in Christ’s merits to be sufficient on our behalf. Placing confidence in Him will not leave us ashamed in the day men’s deeds come into Judgment.

Repentance

By: David M. Curtis

As New Covenant Christians we have been delivered from the conditions of the Old Covenant.. But does all of this mean repentance is optional, take it or leave it?  We know that we are justified by grace alone through an abiding faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Salvation is not of our selves, not of works lest any man should boast. The Bible says God loved us while we were yet sinners, and teaches that it is God who works in us both to will and to do according to His good pleasure. Repentance itself is a gift of the Holy Spirit. True Repentance is the Lord changing our hearts.
