Jesus died, not for us to enjoy life, but to inherit heaven.

"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

If we love and obey God with reverential fear, we will be made born of God with his seed abiding in us, and we will overcome all sins.

1. How did Jesus Christ gave himself to save people?

Hebrews 5:7-9 says that Jesus Christ suffered and died for all our sins, and became the author of our salvation, to save them that obey him. But Christians attend worship services, music performance, ceremonies, revivals, festivals, and celebrations. God has no pleasure in them, since these are church programs, but not in obedience to Jesus Christ. Instead, if we obey him in doing what he tells us to do for our salvation, as the Scapegoat he will take away all our unrighteous addictions that cause us to sin, and as the Lamb sacrificed on the cross, by his blood he will forgive all our past sins. If this is done, then we are saved. For details, please click on these links: 1, "Scapegoat." 2, "Cross."

2. Heaven and Hell will be given us according to our life.

We sin but God tells us not to sin. But we are not able to stop it. We may be addicted to sin. Most Christians consider sin like air to breath and water to drink, without which we cannot survive. Sin is disobeying God. Obeying is opposite to sin, and it is righteousness. The final statement of Jesus Christ about our eternal life is in Revelation 22:12-14. He says, my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. ‪13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." Heaven or hell is according to what we do, that is, according to how we live our lives. If you like to see the details, please click on these links: Heaven or hell by our Works: "By works."

3. Jesus died to send the Holy Ghost; He came back also.

(Correction: In the video, instead of John 16, I said 1 John 16. Sorry, it was the slip of the tongue) In John 16:6-7, Jesus told his disciples that it is good for them if he goes away, because then he can send the Holy Ghost to them. In John 14:3,18,28 Jesus told his disciples that he will come back to them in the omnipotent Spirit with all power. In Matthew 28:17-20, Jesus Christ came back to them after his resurrection with all his power and gave then the commandment to preach all that he has commanded, to people for them to obey so that they may inherit the kingdom of God. In Mark 16:15-16, we see that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. So, by the death of Jesus Christ, he has sent the Holy Ghost to the world, as well as he himself has come back, in the omnipotent Spirit as God. God wants us to inherit his kingdom in heaven.

4. God sent Resurrected Jesus Christ to turn us from sins.

John 3:16 says "that he gave his only begotten Son." The begotten Son is the resurrected Jesus Christ, but not the Man Jesus. Jesus had to die to come to the world as Lord, as Christ, as God, and as the begotten Son of God. He will beget us also as his sons. If you like to study the details, please click on this link: Begotten Son: "Lesson." 1 John 4:9 says, "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." In order to live through him, Jesus Christ must be in the Spirit with us, and he must enable us to abide in him. That is why he had to die. Acts 3:26 says, "God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." So, Jesus Christ is here with us as God, with all his power, to keep us away from our sins and iniquities, and to make us pure.

5. Jesus Christ is here delivering us from evil and sanctifies us.

"Galatians 1:3... our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:" So, we must come out of sin and live according to the will of God. Jesus Christ died, and he came back to save us. Christians forget the fact that he did come back. "Ephesians 5:25-27 says that resurrected Jesus Christ gave himself for us so that he may sanctify us (makes us righteous). Resurrected Jesus Christ is cleaning us with his word, as water cleans the dirt, so that we may be holy. The 'information that Jesus is dead' is not a person, it will not clean us, but the Spirit person Jesus Christ, is the one who cleans us. "Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." Again, it is the person Jesus Christ, who is redeeming and purifying us from all iniquities in us. "1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. ... 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." His seed that remain in us, is not an information, but it is the Spirit of the resurrected Jesus Christ, that abides in us, will prevent us from doing sin. We may grow into him and abide in him. But many preachers say that Jesus is in our hearts even if we sin, which are fake and deception. Do not believe their lies, and they are of the devil. Receive the Spirit person in you, then you will not commit sin. For details, click on links: "Lesson."
