Eph_3:9 and to bring to light what is the fellowship of the mystery which from eternity has been hidden in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;
God removes all past sin in a persons life when they accept Jesus. What you do after that, you better pray about!
Rom 3:23 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,
Rom 3:24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;
Rom 3:25 whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness through the passing by of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God;
Romans 10:13 For everyone, "whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Real joy, freedom and peace can come, even in the midst of a storm, when we focus on Christ instead of the storms.
Joh_14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
God is also warm and loving to those who love Him in return. He will provide a light through the worst storm and go through it with you. Take hope, God said that He would never leave you after you accept Christ as lord and savior. ps: Jesus created everything you are and all around you. It's in the book!
Yes, God is all powerful, but He is a loving God that only gives good gifts and will provide guidance to those following Jesus. He is slow to anger, but just, to allow us to choose our destination of Heaven or Hell. Satan is the one who seeks to kill, steal and destroy.
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
