How to Be a Child of God in the Church of Christ?
Jesus Died for His Church!
The Church of Christ was founded by Jesus over two thousand years ago in Jerusalem and it's still in existence today! It's composed of Christians that have been baptized when they believe Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus' bride, the Church of Christ strives to teach the Gospel Good News to everyone who desires to listen and obey God the Father's ten commandments.
You become a part of God's family on earth and in heaven when you do what the only living God wants you to do. Everything is iterated in the Bible for you to study and to show yourself approved. You shouldn't judge others or allow people's opinion of you bother your spirit.
The Spirit of God the Father wrote the Bible through the use of the Apostles' hands. He literally used them! These were the twelve apostles who followed the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Middle East and one lost his soul. Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus with a kiss on the cheek to the Roman soldiers who then crucified the Lord of Glory. Jesus is the only begotten Son of God the Father in heaven. He is seated at God's right hand.
The evil people of Israel envied Jesus and desperately lied, to have Him nailed to a cross, knowing he was innocent.
Jesus Arose from the Dead and Saved Many Souls.
The grave held Jesus for three days and three nights. Within that time Jesus descended into the underworld where Satan was and rescued all the sinful people. These were people who died before Christ resurrected. They ascended to Heaven because they had accepted, and obeyed God the Father.
Moses, Abraham, Adam, Jacob, Isaac, and others are in heaven. Jesus Christ is a High Priest for his bride and sits at the right hand of God the Father. His presence allows you to approach God the Father in prayer with Jesus (God's Son) interceding for you. God the Father sees Jesus's blood covering you which presents you sinless before God.
Jesus Came to Jerusalem, Israel and Created His Church in AD33.
Jesus Will Present You Faultless to God, If You Obey His Gospel.
Jesus will no longer return to the Hell to save. Jesus presents you faultless to God the Father when you pray and obey his commands after receiving a proper baptism. The Spirit of God within you utters sounds you cannot understand for your benefit to God and is your comfort.
There are two that bear record in heaven, Jesus the Son of God, and God the Father. They agree as one and shape the counsel of eternity.
Your soul was born to live forever! Either you will spend eternity with God in heaven or spend a dire, burning eternity with Satan in hell. God votes for you, Satan votes against you. It's up to you to break the tie. Satan can tempt you, except the devil can never make you sin or force you to sin.
Sinners live separated from God because God the Father cannot look upon sin. You'll pay for your sins on Earth through your government's court system that is currently in place even when you are forgiven by God. All things work together for good to those that love the Lord. You are to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
Are You a Part of God's Family?
Once you are baptized for the remission of sins, you become a part of God's family. God expects you to remain faithful and to remember what Jesus did for you every week. On the Sabbaths of God, you should participate in the Lord's Supper and rest. This day is the seventh day of the week or Saturday, the day God rested after he created the world.
Your faith will grow and develop as you read and study God's word in the Bible on your own and with the help of a preacher or with friends.
In a Twinkling of an Eye, Everyone Shall See Jesus!
In the twinkling of an eye, Jesus will return to earth and every eye shall see him. He will parade his bride, the Church of Christ, before the world when he returns. Then Jesus will destroy the entire world with fire. All your works will burn up, but you'll be saved.
Absolutely no one can predict the return of Christ. Only God the Father knows when that appointed time will be. Therefore, live your life according to God's commands.
When Jesus Returns Every Eye Shall See Him. No one will be able to deny this fact.
Do you believe Jesus died for His Bride, the Church of Christ and It Is Still in Existence Today?
