The GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST


 1 Corinthians 3:11 
King James Version

11 For other foundation can no man lay 

than that is laid, 

which is Jesus Christ.


Do you know the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Apostle Paul warns us, because the world is full of false gospels:

Galatians 1:6-9 (KJV)

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him 

that called you into the grace of Christ 

unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; 

but there be some that trouble you, 

and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

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.


If you have never known the gospel of Jesus Christ, read what apostle Mark wrote:

Mark 1:1 (KJV)

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, 

the Son of God;


Continue reading the gospel here.

Apostle Paul reveals what the gospel of Jesus contains:

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)

15 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.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all 

that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:


From that, you can gather the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ contained three things we must make a stand about, and believe in ("By which also ye are saved."):

1. "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;"

2. "And that he was buried,"

3. "and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"


From which, apostle Paul testifies:

Galatians 1:11-12 (KJV)

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.


The fourth part?

Jesus will return.

Hebrews 9:28 (KJV)

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.


Matthew 24:27 (KJV)

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, 

and shineth even unto the west; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


Luke 21:25-28 (KJV)

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, 

and in the moon, 

and in the stars

and upon the earth distress of nations, 

with perplexity; 

the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, 

and for looking after those things 

which are coming on the earth: 

for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man 

coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, 

then look up, 

and lift up your heads; 

for your redemption draweth nigh.


At a day only God knows.

Matthew 24:36 (KJV)

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, 

no, not the angels of heaven, 

but my Father only.


That's why we must be awake, and vigilant.

Matthew 25:13 (KJV)

13 Watch therefore, 

for ye know neither the day nor the hour 

wherein the Son of man cometh.


We must be born again.

John 3:4-8 (KJV)

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, 

and thou hearest the sound thereof, 

but canst not tell whence it cometh, 

and whither it goeth: 

so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


We must repent.

Matthew 4:17 (KJV)

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, 

and to say, 

Repent: 

for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.


For the last warning had been sounded:

Revelation 22:20 (KJV)

20 He which testifieth these things saith, 

Surely I come quickly

Amen. 

Even so, come, Lord Jesus.


We must follow Jesus' commandments.

Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV)

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments 

hang all the law and the prophets.


As a sign of our love for Him.

John 14:15 (KJV)

15 If ye love me, 

keep my commandments.


So we may be allowed to enter the new Jerusalem, His holy city.

Revelation 22:14 (KJV)

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.


All of God's faithful will be with Him.

Revelation 22:3-5 (KJV)

3 And there shall be no more curse: 

but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; 

and his servants shall serve him:

4 And they shall see his face; 

and his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there; 

and they need no candle, 

neither light of the sun; 

for the Lord God giveth them light: 

and they shall reign for ever and ever.


Except for those who don't love Him.

Revelation 22:15 (KJV)

15 For without are dogs, 

and sorcerers, 

and whoremongers, 

and murderers, 

and idolaters, 

and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.


Do you want to be with the Lord?

Now is the time to repent, be born again, to watch, to pray, to wait for the Lord, to serve, to love Him, and to start reading the Bible.

Revelation 22:7 (KJV)

7 Behold, I come quickly: 

blessed is he that keepeth the sayings 

of the prophecy of this book.
