The Redemption of God – Calvary Temple VA

We firmly believe that we are in the last days, and that we will see Jesus return soon for the rapture of His Church.

The Bible says that in the last days, lawlessness will increase. We see that fulfilled more and more each day.

Another indication of Jesus’ soon return has to do with the teaching and understanding of the Bible, specifically in churches.

What do you hear from church teachers concerning sin and the salvation of Man? Much of what is being taught is centered on man, not on the true miracle of regeneration. Many teach the gospel from the point of view that man is inherently good, that because of Adam he has been doomed, but that redemption gives mankind back the right to all of the goodness that the earth has to offer.

As you can tell from the previous paragraph, there is some good and some bad in much of today’s teaching. God truly is love. He created man perfect and His own image. Then Adam rebelled against God and brought sin into the world. We will not be judged for Adam’s sin. We have all sinned, and we need a Savior. Man is not basically good. Man is depraved and will be judged for his own sin.

When the subject of man’s sin is weakened, God’s plan of redemption is cheapened. Man becomes the focal point, rather than seeing God as the Author of salvation through the perfect sacrifice of Jesus.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video clip, Pastor Scott tells us of our need to give the true gospel message when we go to reach the lost. He reminds us of man’s sinful nature and God’s love and kindness towards us.

Listen to this video, and then start to meditate on what God has done in you through your own regeneration. Begin to be touched with the Lord’s heart toward sinners. Go and tell them of His great love for them.

You can find this teaching in its entirety, and other biblical resources at our Calvary Temple website. This article is a ministry of Calvary Temple of Sterling, VA. Pastor Star Scott is the senior pastor. We are a ministry that teaches and lives sound doctrine.
