Salvation: How To by ExaltGod Salvation: How To by ExaltGod
EDIT: I've reworded this stamp a bit.  Don't worry, the message of salvation hasn't changed, I'm just trying to make this stamp as clear and easy to understand as possible. 
=================================================================

1) Realize you are a sinner, and that this separates you from God, who is perfectly righteous.



Romans 3:23
"For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;"

Romans 3:10-12
"as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
there is none that understandeth,
there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way,
they are together become unprofitable;
there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

Habakkuk 1:12-13
"Art thou not from everlasting,
O Lord my God, mine Holy One?
we shall not die.
O Lord, thou hast ordained them for judgment;
and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,
and canst not look on iniquity:
wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,
and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?"

Psalm 145:17
"The Lord is righteous in all his ways,
and holy in all his works."

And neither am I by ExaltGod

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Understand the penalty for sin (Hell).


Because God is 100% just and 100% righteous, He must punish sin.

Deuteronomy 32:4   
"He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment:
a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he."

Romans 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death..."

Amos 2:4
"Thus saith the Lord;
For three transgressions of Judah,
and for four,
I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because they have despised the law of the Lord,
and have not kept his commandments,
and their lies caused them to err,
after the which their fathers have walked:"


All sin will be punished:

*either through Jesus' death on the cross
*or by you going to Hell

John 3:36
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him."

Hell is Real by ExaltGod

=======================================================================================

How did Jesus' death on the cross pay for our sins?
Jesus, who never sinned once, died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice to pay for sin.  
As the spotless lamb of God, He shed His perfect blood for our sins, and took on the Father's wrath for our sins.

A) The physical, bloody death of Jesus was required for the price to be paid:

Romans 5:10  
"For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son
much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

Ephesians 1:7
"[JESUS CHRIST], in whom we have redemption through his blood
the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;"

Leviticus 17:11
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood: 
and I [GOD] have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: 
for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."

Isaiah 53:5
"But he [JESUS CHRIST] was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed."


B) Jesus took on God the Father's full wrath towards the sin that He held in His body:

Isaiah 53:10
"Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: 
when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin..."

John 18:11  
"Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: 
the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?"

Revelation 14:10a  
"The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation..."

1 Peter 2:24
"[Jesus Christ], who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree..."

Nothin but the Blood of Jesus by ExaltGod

=======================================================================================

3) Believe that Jesus (God in the flesh ) died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again the 3rd day.



1 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:"

Romans 5:8
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, 
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Matthew 12:40  
"For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly;
so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

Romans 4:22-25
"And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 
Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; 
but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead
who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification."

 God's Not Dead by ExaltGod

=======================================================================================

4) Put your faith in Jesus' sacrifice as the only thing that can pay for your sins.



Romans 3:24-25
"Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood
to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;"

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."

Romans 5:9  
"Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."

Romans 5:11  
"And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom we have now received the atonement."

A Ransom For Many by ExaltGod

=======================================================================================

5) Trust in Jesus alone to forgive & save you.



John 14:6  
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Ephesians 1:12-13
"that we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
in whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: 
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,"

Romans 5:1  
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"

Romans 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Colossians 2:13  
"And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, 
hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;"

Faith in GOD by ExaltGod

=======================================================================================
=======================================================================================

Repentance, even though it isn't mentioned by name on this stamp, is part of salvation.  Repentance is simply "a change of mind".
And that's clearly explained here in this stamp.  
You have to change your mind about being a sinner, knowing the penalty of sin, believing what Jesus did for you, trusting in what He did to pay for your sins, and having faith in Him to forgive and save you.

Here's a stamp I made on repentance: STAMP


From:av1611.com/kjbp/articles/freem…
"God requires that in order to be saved one must truly repent (Acts 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9). The word means "a change of mind" and there must be that concerning God, sin and salvation. Men think that sin does not really separate them from God--they must change their mind about that. Men think that salvation is by works--they must change their mind about that. There is nothing more evident today than the absence of repentance among those who are professing to be converted."

More on repentance, from: av1611.com/freedom.html
You "must trust in [Jesus Christ] and Him alone [for salvation]. If [you] try to add anything (good works, baptism, church membership, etc.) to Christ's payment then [you are] saying to God that His Son's sacrificial death and blood shed on the cross was not sufficient to pay for [your] sin."

=======================================================================================

One final point:
As stated in the stamp, we're saved when we believe on, put our faith in, and trust Jesus and what He did to save us.  
We are NOT saved by "being a good person", or "doing our best to serve God".  

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;"

Is it good to serve God and do good works?
Yes!
But if you're trusting in your good actions to save you, you're going to go to hell. 
You must trust solely in Jesus Christ's righteousness, His blood and death on the cross, burial, and resurrection for salvation.

On top of that, saying that God supports the rape and abuse of his people is so much of a stretch I don't even have words for it. Even without reading the verses in question, everyone, even anti-Christians, know that it was not the Israelites who were "raped, murdered, abused," etc.

You know what? I'm willing to believe in your god, if you give me proof he's real. I'm not trying to troll you, I'm 100% sincere. I know Odin promised no more ice giants, and I don't see those around, so what did YHWH do?

You are trolling, because I've heard the "odin and the ice giants" thing a million times. 
If you want proof for the God of the Bible, go google it.  Romans 1:18-20

"For proof of the validity of this book, go read this book". Seems legit.

I'm not a troll, I'm a believer of the Norse faith. Not my fault others use my god's achievements as a way to troll you.
