THIS IS THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST

THIS IS THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.
THE GOSPEL to be preached is that there is Salvation FROM SIN in Christ Jesus, thus…
Luke 24:46-47
(46) And said unto them, Thus it is WRITTEN, and THUS it was fit for Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
(47) And THAT REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF SINS SHOULD BE PREACHED IN HIS NAME among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
 
This generation has LOST TRACK of what the Gospel is and have conceived their “another gospel”!!!
Belief in the Gospel cannot go together with carryover of other old and different beliefs and behaviours. We must first REPENT of all we believed and behaved before, in order to truly BELIEVE THE GOSPEL with a single heart.
Mark 1:14-15
 (14) Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
(15) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: REPENT, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL.
 .
The Jews who saw Christ’s Gospel as a stumbling block (1Pet 2:8) preferred that the “goodnews” should be that the Christ brings dominion over the Gentiles for Israel.
The Gentiles like today’s world who saw and still sees Christ’s Gospel as foolishness (1Cor 1:23) prefer that the “goodnews” should be that there is permission to sin with enjoyment of financial prosperity in Christ Jesus so that they finally enter heaven by irrevocable hook or crook.
But God’s initial purpose for His human CHILDREN is that they be FREE FROM sinful and evil dead works to be made ABLE to do good works ZEALOUSLY (Tit 2:14) and Christ came to provide purifying power and enabling grace for that original divine purpose to come to pass (Eph 2:10).
 .
The Gospel of Salvation preaches FAITH which is ASSURED of Who Jesus Christ is, and REPENTANCE for REMISSION of sin in His Name.
Acts 2:36-38
(36) Therefore let all the house of Israel KNOW ASSUREDLY, THAT GOD HAS MADE THAT SAME JESUS, WHOM YOU HAVE CRUCIFIED, BOTH LORD AND CHRIST.
(37) Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their hearts, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
(38) Then Peter said unto them, REPENT, AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
 .
Here is more on the Apostolic Gospel which this generation has abandoned…
Acts 3:18-19
(18) But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he has so FULFILLED.
(19) REPENT therefore, and BE CONVERTED, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
 .
Acts 20:20-21
(20) And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have showed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
(21) Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, REPENTANCE toward God, and FAITH toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
 .
When we think up and logic up our truth from personal CONJECTURE and philosophize from popular CULTURE we are bound to err. But when we learn the Truth from the Logos of the SCRIPTURE, we cannot err.
