The Must Read Interview With God: What Is The Gospel?

Atheism-agnosticism-following God

Man: Lord what is the Gospel?

God: I love you

Man: Could You be a little more specific Lord?

God: I love man; despite man’s sin against Me. Despite the heinous acts committed, crimes committed, man’s defiance and outright disobedience – I love man. Taking My name in vain, disbelief in Me, doubts even among My own children, not believing My Son is God, misinterpreting My Word – yet do I love man.

Man: But what about the Gospel Lord?

God: My love for you IS the Gospel; don’t you see?

Man: We see in part Lord; some saved some not, all understanding some, and none understanding all.

God: I AM who I AM. I have always been, and I will always be. I am the Lord; I am righteous and just, merciful and loving, slow to anger and full of grace.

As I am perfect, so must all of My creation be as well. As I am righteous and just, loving and merciful – so must man be. Sin entered into creation through man, and man was no longer as I intended him to be.

You ask what is the Gospel – I will tell you.

As I the Lord am righteous, perfect, and just – there must be rules for man to live by. As I am so are you to be. Man sinned against Me thereby breaking those rules and requirements. By My Word – the punishment for sinning against Me is death.

As I am a just God, the death sentence must be carried out, there can be no favoritism. As I am the Lord God Almighty – My Word is truth – I do not change like time or the shifting of the wind.

Man: So You are saying You must be true to Yourself?

God: That is correct – I AM the truth, I do not change – I AM the Lord

I am merciful as well and full of grace. The cross of Christ is all about mercy and grace.

God: Many are those who are blind and believe not in Me. All sin against Me including My own children, yet have I loved man.

Man: Would You please tell us about Your Son Lord?

God: I so loved man that I sent My only Son to earth, born as a babe. My own Son who is God same as am I the Father.

Jesus came to save; yet His own creation did not welcome Him but reviled Him. Some few recognized Jesus for who He is and followed Him, many did not – yet has God loved man.

Man has sinned against Me, and the penalty for that sin is death – eternal separation from Me in hell. All men have sinned, no one, no not one is righteous.

Man: That presents a serious problem for man, who then can be saved Lord?

God: By himself man cannot be saved – without blood there can be no forgiveness. The blood of animals did not suffice nor would the blood of sinful man.

My Son Jesus being God, and yet man as well was perfect even though having been tempted by Satan. Being in fact the perfect God-man Jesus was the only one who could pay the required penalty for the sin of man.

Man being sinful can do nothing to avert the penalty of sin – death, meaning the eternal separation of man’s spirit from Me. Being a just God this penalty must be carried out.

However being a merciful God full of grace I paid for the sin of man through the sacrifice of My Son Jesus’s willing death on the cross. The shed blood of Christ and His death paid for the sins of man – once for all.

Man: It has been said Lord that You desire all to be saved.

God: Yes I desire that not one would perish. Many will however perish through their own choices.

Each man and woman must come to Me willingly through Jesus. Those who come to Christ and ask forgiveness for their sins, accepting that only Christ through His atoning death on the cross can save them – will be saved. Each man or woman must believe in Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection to life. Each individual must continue to walk with Me living by My Word – this is a life-long commitment. Man cannot say a prayer and then live however he chooses and expect that he will be saved.

This then is the Gospel – God loved man enough to pay the penalty Himself for man’s sinfulness. It is finished.

  1. Wow. You did good, Greg! I do have a hmmmm though. “Man cannot say a prayer and then live however he chooses and expect to be saved.” “Faith of a mustard seed?” “Never leave you nor forsake you?” “I have you in the palm of my hand?” etc. etc, etc. Of course we are to be transformed but it is Christ who does that, not us. That statement kind of sounds like “staying saved” depends on what we do after we say the prayer. Hmmmmmmmmmm

    • Yes it does, but I ask you to stop and think of something. What does the Word say of those who are TRULY saved? Such as in James? Will they not display the fruit of the Lord’s work in them? What of those who say a prayer, even displaying good fruit and then leaving Christ behind forever? Were they ever saved to begin with? Can someone who has been saved by Christ (as He is the only one who can do so as you rightly mentioned) go all through life NOT displaying good fruit? I’m not here referring to those who may wonder off for a time and come back, but those who abandon God for good. We are not saved by works, but those who are saved will do good works, again in James – as well those works were provided by the Lord to begin with though we do them – Titus 2:14 and Ephesians 2:10.

  2. You ask some interesting questions. If we renounce Christ, (verbally and otherwise abandon Him for good) after asking Him into our heart, then yes we have hell to look forward to. Being TRULY saved? I don’t even know what that means. We confess we believe…. and we are saved. Yes, we should want to do good works but if we don’t I don’t think God is going to throw us out of heaven. He’ll work on us to help us want to do good works. I know the scripture about faith w/out works, etc. I just think God is more merciful than to condemn someone for not being this so-called upstanding Christian. HE ACCEPTS US WHERE WE ARE. I know there’s a difference between being a follower of Jesus Christ and someone claiming to be a Christian because they said the sinners prayer. “Good fruit” can be simply praying for others in secret, works do not have to be on display. I know you aren’t saying that. I just felt like that sentence leaned a bit to much towards works. It was a good article and I enjoyed reading it. We could probably discuss this for a week and I don’t think either of us is wrong. 🙂

    • I will here say the demons believe in Christ and they surely are not going to heaven. 🙂 But yes I agree with your thinking. Yes I suspect we could have a great chat on this! 🙂
      Truly saved? You explained that yourself in your own comment! Say a prayer and walk away – yes exactly!
      I think we are on the same page even more than you think. 🙂
      I could have phrased that part differently but I admit that was intentional. Too many are those who seem to think that you can merely pray a prayer, and then do as you please because after all, the blood of Christ covers all sin right? I know you don’t think that way and know better, but there are many who do not. Now more than ever the Gospel of Christ is being perverted and those who speak up on this are being labeled as haters, intolerant etc.
      What a sad world we live in.
      Blessings to you Sue! 🙂

    Just sharing Greg Holt’s article originally posted at Inspirational Chrisitians for Today. May it inspire us to deepen our FAITH in our Lord Jesus Christ and to live by His Word.
    As we enter the HOLY WEEK, let our sinfulness die with Him and may we all resurrect with Him as transformed Chrisitans. A BLESSED LENT TO EVERYONE…GOD BLESS US ALL!!!

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
