Many don’t believe in God, because they argue “If God is exist and is good then why are all these evil things happening in the world”. The truth is, all those bad things actually prove that God exists because He said in His Word (the Bible) that all these things would happen as a result of falling away from Him. But God’s eternal plan is already at work.
We live in a fallen world that is far from God and since the fall of man into sin and death, God the Father set a plan of salvation in motion to bring mankind and creation back to Himself. In short, in just a few paragraphs, here is God’s eternal plan.
All along in the Old Testament God the Father was declaring the coming of His Son throughout the law and the prophets. Through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob He separated to himself a nation through which His only begotten Son, the Messiah would be born. Thousands of years later He called John the Baptist, the last of the Old Testament prophets who was to prepare the way for Jesus through preaching repentance from sins and water baptism into repentance. Then, Jesus the Son of God was manifested, and although He was sinless submitted to John’s baptism to fulfill all righteousness.
Jesus was the one born of God the Father to save us from our sins and bring us back to God through His blood. He bore our sins, sicknesses, diseases, and took our punishment upon Him, that in Him we might be freed from the curse of sin. He would suffer, shed His blood, die, be buried for three days, and rise again from the dead.
Today is the day of salvation.
Now God is calling all peoples everywhere to repent, believe in His Son, be baptized in water to Jesus, and be Baptized with His Holy Spirit.
Now we see in the New Testament the Son of God preparing His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit. Because He would leave to go back to the Father, they would now need the Holy Spirit to teach, lead and empower them to continue the Good News.
After Jesus defeated Satan, sin, and death He resurrected from the dead and ascended back into heaven. He sent the Holy Spirit to empower us to proclaim the Gospel of His Kingdom and to disciple all peoples in every country, tribe, village and teach them to obey Him also.
Now, until Jesus returns, the Holy Spirit is preparing and maturing a Bride for Jesus Christ, one without spot or wrinkle (free from sin). At this very moment Jesus is now readying to return and receive His Bride, who are His people, those that believe and obey Him.
Shortly after this, Jesus will judge the whole world, the righteous and the wicked, the living and the dead according to their deeds. Heaven is for the righteous, those that obey Him and do His will. A lake of fire, the second death, is prepared for those that sin, deny and disobey Him. Through His judgments, He will ultimately overcome His enemies and the kingdoms of this world shall become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ. The Son of God will then create a new heaven and a new earth without sin: liars, thieves, cowards, the immoral, adulterers, rebellious, covetous, sorcerers, and murderers. There will be no more death, those who serve Him will live forever and worship Him in the fellowship and presence of our God.
Today is your day of salvation. Turn back to God by repenting of your sins. Believe this Gospel, Be baptized to Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins and God will give you His Holy Spirit.
