Sunday, March 27 is Resurrection Day, the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. Because He died for our sins, was buried, and three days later arose from the dead, we have forgiveness of sin and newness of life in Christ.

Our world needs hope–look at all the evil going on, especially evil done in the name of religion. True belief–faith, in the biblical gospel of Christ sets the soul free from the power of sin and new life begins through the power of the Holy Spirit.

If God does nothing else for me in this life other than save me from my sin, He has done enough: He forgives my sin because of the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary; and if my body is found in the grave at the return of Christ I know that he will gather me up with all the other saints, and I will spend eternity with Him in the New Heaven and the New Earth.

Salvation is found in Christ alone by faith alone. It is not found in religious ritual, the communion wafer and wine, or the act of baptism. Salvation is found by faith in Christ alone. That is what is so freeing about the gospel–I am free from performance. I don’t have to act out in a religious sense for God because the real work for salvation was done by Christ on the cross, by Christ alone.

What could I possibly add to the finished work of Christ?

John 19:30: When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

The phrase “it is finished” tells the whole story. In Greek the words mean “paid in full.” It means that everything necessary to fulfill the Scriptures is fulfilled. There is nothing left to do–the sin offering is complete. Couple that with the resurrection and everything necessary for salvation is accomplished–IT IS FINISHED. What more could we add to that?????

All that is left is for you to do is to make a choice and place your faith in Christ, and the finished work! Paul clearly detailed the gospel for us, and if we believe these truths forgiveness of sin will occur and eternal life will be yours.

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 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 (1 Cor. 15:1- 4).

Furthermore, the gospel is realized by faith and faith alone:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).


Where are the great works or religious rituals you have to perform for salvation? There are none, they are not found in the Bible–salvation comes by faith not by religious ritual and works.

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 Ephesians 2:8-9).
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;  Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 3:5-7).


Believe the gospel and be saved! Have peace in Christ and He will give you the peace of God which passes all understanding (Phil. 4:7).

Have a wonderful Resurrection Day and thanks for visiting!

As you may have noticed I have taken some time off from writing on the blog. I have been ill for sometime, although I am now recovering by the grace of God; so I appreciate your prayers.

It is not easy writing about heavy spiritual issues continually, although I do enjoy it. When you stand on the front line in the spiritual war you will take a hit now and then–the spiritual battle is very real, as I and others can testify. As Paul wrote, pray for me, “that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak (Ephesians 6:19-20).

I am also working on a new book, although I had to lay it down for a period of time because of my illness. It should be finished by now but because of my illness it is greatly delayed. So pray also that I will be able to pick up my pen and write as the Lord leads. I am very excited about the topic and I look forward to the work of research and writing.

I may be contacted at the following addresses:



Once again, thanks for your understanding.
