It is with love for truth we speak to you. "Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God." (2 Cor 2:17)
It is of great importance to understand God’s chronological order within the Biblical scheme of redemption for humanity. Why? Because for decades (centuries) "Religious" error has corrupted the truth from the minds of the unlearned (Hosea 4:6) into a false hope of heaven they will never attain within their erroneous doctrines. One must release any preconceived/biased notion indoctrinated by false teachings in order to accept/submit to the truth that holds freedom (John 8:32).
The Old Testament is now for our learning (Rom 15:4). Its law of works has been nailed to the cross (Col 2:14). We no longer receive forgiveness of sins by its given commands (Heb 9:16). We now live under the law of Christ (1 Cor 9:21). Simply stated, we are no longer saved in the same manner today (Christ risen) as they were while Christ was alive in the flesh and before He came (OT).
Matthew, Mark, Luke & John are the recorded and gathered teachings of WHO can save us (Matt 28:18-20). Only in Jesus Christ the sinless Son of God is salvation found (John 14:6).
The book of Acts is the HOW one is saved by Jesus Christ
(Acts 2:37-38, 8:12-13, 36-39, 9:18, 10:47-48, 16:15, 33, 18:8, 19:5, 22:16)
and added (grafted in) to His unique blood bought congregation/fold/kingdom/body/assembly/way/church/tree
(Acts 2: 47, 20:28, Rom 16:16).
Romans through Revelation are written letters to remind them of HOW they were saved (Rom 6:3-4, 1 Cor 12:13, Gal 3:27, Col 2:11-12, 1 Peter 3:21) and to remain faithful till the end (1 Cor 9:24, Rev 2:10).
We are saved by GRACE (the BASIS of our salvation),
Through FAITH (the MEANS of our salvation),
Acts 8:36, Rom 6:4
In water BAPTISM (the TIME of our salvation),
For good WORKS (the RESULT of our salvation).
When a person does not understand this simple chronological Bible truth he/she will wrongfully divide all manners of salvation which gives way to false gospels/”churches” (Gal 1:6-10) and ultimately results in eternal hell (Luke 3:9).
Only within the saved gathered congregations (Rom 16:16) will you find love/faith/forgiveness/grace/knowledge/purpose/goals/peace/unity/
family/direction/guidance/understanding/compassion/mercy/moral truth and all other spiritual wealth.
Come hear the truth on all matters of faith (Rom 10:17). Set up a study today (2 Tim 2:15)
