Aug 21 - “PEACE THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS”

“Made peace through the blood of His cross” (Col 1:20).

Note the words, “”made peace”" – not “”gave peace.”" There is a vast difference between making peace and giving peace. You may be able to give someone an expensive electronic watch – it may cost you a couple of hundred dollars. But let’s suppose you made the watch and then gave it to him. You could have spent a fortune studying electronic engineering; a good part of your time might have also been used in those studies. Besides, since you are the one who made the watch, you can repair it if anything goes wrong with it. “”Having MADE PEACE through the blood”" means Jesus is the author of peace, the Prince of peace. The blood of Jesus Christ is so unique. As we have been washed in the blood of Christ, we can always enjoy the peace of God. “”Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means”" (II Thess 3:16).

Millions do not yet know the SECRET OF PERFECT PEACE. Many think riches, name, fame, friends etc. will give them peace; finally they are frustrated and fail to find the SECRET OF PEACE.

Dear reader, if we have been fully washed in the blood of the Lamb, we can always have perfect undisturbed peace of mind. No matter what happens outside, it matters what happens inside!

  1. SELECTIVE "FAITH ONLY" SALVATION

    FAITH ONLY BELIEVERS IN CHRIST DENY THAT THE NEW COVENANT PLAN OF SALVATION WAS NOT IN EFFECT UNTIL AFTER THE DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS. (THAT WOULD BE ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST) IN ORDER TO BE SAVED WITHOUT BEING BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS. (WATER BAPTISM) THEY PROCLAIM THAT THEY CAN BE SAVED LIKE THE THIEF ON THE CROSS. (LUKE 23:39-43)
    IF MEN TODAY CAN BE SAVED LIKE, THE THIEF ON THE CROSS, THEN WHY CAN THEY NOT BE SAVED LIKE, THE RICH YOUNG RULER?

    LUKE 18:18-22 A RULER QUESTIONED HIM, SAYING, "GOOD TEACHER, WHAT MUST I DO TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE?" 19 JESUS SAID TO HIM, "WHY DO YOU CALL ME GOOD? NO ONE IS GOOD EXCEPT GOD ALONE. 20 YOU KNOW THE COMMANDMENTS, 'DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT STEAL, DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.' 21 AND HE SAID, "ALL THESE THINGS I HAVE KEPT FROM MY YOUTH." 22 WHEN JESUS HEARD THIS, HE SAID TO HIM, "ONE THING YOU STILL LACK; SELL ALL THAT YOU POSSESS AND DISTRIBUTE IT TO THE POOR, AND YOU SHALL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN; COME AND FOLLOW ME."

    WHAT WAS THE RICH MAN'S PLAN OF SALVATION?

    The rich man's question was what must I do to inherit eternal life?

    1. Do not commit adultery.
    2. Do not murder.
    3. Do not steal.
    4. Do not bear false witness.
    5. Honor your father and mother.
    6. Sell all your possessions and distribute them to the poor.

    Jesus said do this and you shall have treasure in heaven.

    Can men today be saved by, the rich man's plan of salvation? OF COURSE NOT!

    Can men today be saved by, the thief on the cross plan of salvation? OF COURSE NOT!
