Just What Does The Gospel Mean Jesus Was Talking About?

The gospel means good news, the messages of Christianity. The gospel introduced the Jews to a new way of life, that of grace rather than the Mosaic Law. Paul told the Galatians the gospel he preaches is not according to man but he received it from Jesus Christ. A man is not justified by the works of the Law but through the faith in Christ Jesus. Paul again says I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who gave himself up for me. Folks before faith came we were under the Law. The Law was our teacher to lead us to Christ. Now that we have faith we are no longer under a teacher. The gospel is the good news that God has provided a way of redemption through his Son Jesus Christ. The gospel has to do entirely with Christ. The gospel was not only preached by Christ but by his apostles and disciples. In the New Testament God’s plan is to save mankind by forgiving his sins and transforming his being. The gospel is the story of God’s gift of salvation through the person and work of Jesus Christ, the impact of the life-death-and resurrection of Christ. Folks Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures and that he was buried and he was raised on the 3rd day. To all who believe this has remission of sins. The gospel was preached by voice and then transmitted in writings which are called Gospels. These written gospels record Jesus’s life and teachings. The chief purpose of the gospels was to create faith in Christ. The gospels were composed for use in the growing movement of the church. The gospel goes along with the Kingdom of God. The kingdom is where redeemed souls can enjoy the blessings of God’s rule. The New Testament talks about 3 stages in God’s Kingdom. Death is not destroyed until the end of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ. The Kingdom of God has come among men to break Satan’s power and deliver them from his satanic bondage. The Kingdom of God is the sovereign rule of God manifested in Christ. The return of Christ is necessary for the final defeat of the enemies of God’s Kingdom. God’s Kingdom is the reign of God through Christ and the church. By the preaching of the gospel God’s reign can continue all over the world. After this Christ will return for the final judgment of the resurrection of the dead for the age to come. Thank you.

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, Forever and ever. Amen.

“THE DREAM”

Peace River Shopper

Chapter 12 by Bumpy Thermos We sit and talked for a while with the old man and woman. They made me feel very welcome and safe. The Sheriff assured them that he would look for Tommy and let them know he was ok. After a little while, the Sheriff says that we needed to find Tommy and we left. I turned and looked back as we went down the road. The two old people were dancing in their front yard. It was kind of a funny dance, they were holding hands and spinning each other around. I thought it looked very odd, but I didn’t say anything to the Sheriff. Anyway, the Sheriff decided that we should go have a look at that harness that my Aunt had found. So, we head toward my Aunt’s house. It is really too far to go back to my car first, so we go straight over there. We pull up to the house and my friends, wife and my Aunt come walking out. Here I am in the back seat of a Sheriff’s car. I bet I really looked funny, but what could I do? We pull up and the Sheriff starts talking to them before he lets me out. What kind of stuff is that? Finally he turns my way and comes over to my door and lets me out. We explain what was going on and my Aunt goes and gets the harness. The Sheriff takes a good look at the harness and asks my Aunt if he can take it with him to look over. She agrees and off we go again. On the way back, the Sheriff makes a call to someone about looking at this harness. When we get back to his office, there is a big funny looking guy waiting for us. He takes one look at the harness and says, yep that’s my harness. The Sheriff turns to me and says that I can go now and that he will contact me if I’m needed any more. Oh no you don’t, I say. You have got to tell me who or what was wearing that harness. The big funny looking guy turns to me and says, oh that harness belongs to Alvin. Obviously it doesn’t belong to Alvin the chipmunk, so I say Alvin your pet. And he says yes, Alvin is my pet monkey. I thought to myself, how big is your pet monkey? But I didn’t, I just turned and headed back to my Aunt’s house. When I got there, everyone was sitting down to dinner, so I sat down with them. My Aunt had fixed lima beans and rice. She had made these great big biscuits. Yum, yum. I sit down and tried to explain everything to everybody that had happened to me that day with the Sheriff. It was just about dark when we decided to take off and continue our trip to Tennessee when the knock came on the back door. My Aunt goes to the door and opens it…
