MARK CHAPTER 16:15-20–JESUS’ VERY LAST INSTRUCTION TO HIS ELEVEN APOSTLES BEFORE HE ASCENDED TO THE FATHER.

15     And he JESUS said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16     He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall (be damned). 

17     And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18     They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19     ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20     And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

JOHN CHAPTER 14:24     He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

EVEN MOSES PROPHESIED OF THE IMPORTANCE OF JESUS COMING TO EARTH.  

Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto ***him ***ye shall hearken;

unto ***him ***ye shall hearken;

Luke 17:24   For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.    

 Acts 4:12   Neither is there salvation in any other: for there (is none other name) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.   

Colossians 1:23   If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

ROMANS 1:16     ¶ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

GALATION 1:8-12

8     But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9     As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

10     ¶ For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

11     But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

12     For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15

1     ¶ Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2     By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 1

1     ¶ God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2     Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

1 JOHN 5:10-12 10     ¶ He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

11     And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12     He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (:10 … because *he* believeth ***not*** the record that God gave of his Son.)

JOHN 3:16,18    For God so loved the world, that he gave***his only*** begotten Son, that whosoever believeth *in him* should not perish, but have everlasting life.

18     He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

IN HIM   TO BELIEVE IN JESUS IS TO BELIEVE IN HIS WORDS AND HIS WORDS CAME FROM THE FATHER

HEBREWS 10:1-9

1     ¶ For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can ***never*** with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2     For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3     But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.  4  For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.   5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:   6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.  8  Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;  9  Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. (He taketh away the first,) that he may establish the second.   10  By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ***once**** for all.   12  But this man, after he had offered ***one sacrifice ***for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;  14   For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.    15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,   16  This *is *the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17     And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.   28  He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:   29  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

2 CORINTHIAN CHAPTER 3:7     But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:   8  How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?   10   For even that which ***was*** made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 11   For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.   12  ¶ Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:   13  And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:   14  But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 15     But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

WHO IS GOING TO DIE?  WHO’S BLOOD CAN TAKE AWAY YOUR SINS?

1 Corinthians 11:25   After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup ***is*** the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

Colossians 1:14   In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Hebrews 9:22   And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 7     But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: 8     ¶ The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: 9     Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; 10     Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. 11     But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12     Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13     For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14     How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15     ¶ And for this cause he*** is*** the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16     For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.  There must, also, of necessity be the death of the testator.  

WHICH PROPHET HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PAY FOR YOUR SINS????

17     For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18     Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19     For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20     Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. 21     Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22     And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23     ¶ It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24     For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25     Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26     For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27     And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28     So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

THERE IS ONE OTHER POWER THAT IS COMING PRECEDING JESUS–THE ANTI CHRIST. 

2 Thessalonians 2:3   Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4     ¶ And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive*** you***. 5     For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6     And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7     For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8     All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9     Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10     And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11     And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12     And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13     But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14     And ***this gospel*** of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU
