This article is called, “What is most important verse or topic in the Bible.?” Is it having a Bible? Is it studying the Bible? Is it studying the laws in the Bible? Is it knowing who wrote the Bible? Is it knowing about Creation? I can go on and on with this question, but I think you see what I am talking about. Is there one thing that stands out, among everything else, and all of the doctrines of Scripture? ABSOLUTELTY, POSITIVELY, YES.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN SCRIPTURE
I Corinthians 15: 1-3 “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;”. Please notice the Apostle Paul states this is “first of all, the most important thing in the Bible.
And as the NIV translates it I Corinthians 15:1-3 “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”
There are 66 books in the Bible. There are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament for a total of 66 books. All of these books in the Bible points to one specific event in history, Old Testament, or points back to one specific event in history, that did occur, New Testament.
WHAT IS THE MOST PAINFUL THING IN THIS LIFE
I think this question and its answer will vary from person to person. But I am going to give my opinion on this question. I believe most people will answer this question, according to their own personal experiences. I believe some will think, hurt and pain, some will think of a dread disease, such as Cancer, or heart disease. Others will think of loss or the person they lost. Others will answer and say Love. So, I will now give my answer and tell you what it is in my opinion. IT IS REJECTION. NEVER BEING ACCEPTED. THIS INCLUDES NEVER BEING WANTED. I relate this to my life experiences but also according to Gods Word.
What did God and Jesus know about rejection? Mark 12:10 “And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner: Matthew 8:34 “4 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.: Mark 6:3 “3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.” Luke 4:28-29 “28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.”
Luke 17:25, “But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.” Luke 23:18 “And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: John 1:11 “He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.” John 5:43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.” John 12:48 “He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.” Is this enough scriptures I have posted, because there are many more.
The Apostle Paul was a great Jewish Scholar. He knew the Law of God, forwards and backwards and God used him to write 1/2 of the New Testament. When Paul was converted and saved by the Grace of God, our father in heaven re-trained Paul with the Gospel of Christ. So, what did Paul say was most important for himself and everyone?
I Corinthians 2:2 “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” (S a l v a t i o n).
Galatians 1:8-9 “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.”
Dear Reader, here Paul states the most important verses and message of the Bible, and it is all about the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the message of Redemption, Salvation and Reconciliation back to God, by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for “SIN.” Thank you, Jesus.
WHAT IS GODS’ REAL PROBLEM WITH MANKIND
Here is what you are NOT hearing on the internet and not hearing from the majority of pulpits in our country. What religion do you have that replaced the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Religions really do not accept or deal with the SIN ISSUE. All the way back in the garden of Eden, our original parents (Adam and Eve) were created by God and given a great gift, that you have-it is called “FREE WILL.” They were not created as ROBOTS and had the ability to CHOOSE. Eve was deceived by the devil, but Adam was not deceived. They used their own free will to choose and sin. ALL SIN IS AGAINST GOD BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS. GOD HAS A STANDARD THAT IS BASED UPON HIMSELF.
Our original parents separated all of mankind from God. All humanity LOST OUR RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD THE FATHER. Isaiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have “hid his face from you”, that he will not hear.” This is where our relationship and fellowship with God CHANGED. GOD NEVER HAS AND NEVER WILL ACCEPT SIN, BUT HE WILL FORGIVE IT.
There are many Religions on earth, and they will ALL send you to hell. BECAUSE THEY DO NOT RECONCILE OR DEAL WITH THE SIN ISSUE, WHICH IS GODS AND MANS PROBLEM.
The sin issue has been all of mankind’s and God’s problem from the beginning. God did not create all of mankind just to burn us in hell. God never created ROBOTS, He gave all of us a great gift called FREE WILL, and you have it also. You have the CHOICE to accept or reject God and his forgiveness of sin. God provided the way of forgiveness for us. He sent his perfect only begotten son JESUS to pay the consequences of sin for us. Jesus took our place as our substitute and suffered and died on a Roman cross for ALL SIN-EVERYONES SIN, so we could be reconciled back to God and FORGIVEN. II Corinthians 5:21 “For he (GOD) hath made him ( JESUS) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
I look around this world in this Church Age. I study and watch many of God’s preachers on the internet. What I see with many, makes me sick at my stomach. Many Pastors assume everyone who walks in the church understands the gospel. Churches have drifted away and have become “MAN CENTERED, NOT CHRIST CENTERED.” The message of the death, burial and resurrection was the very heartbeat of the Apostle Paul, and the other Apostles.
It is funny to see how their new jesus fits the bill of what the Globalists wants to take place. So called Ministers preach that Jesus came to deliver us from depression and poverty. They promote the doctrine that Jesus came to give us our best life and best world now. Jesus inspires us to change all of our social institutions. Reform churches, without hatred, greed or intolerance. And, Push forward human rights and make it supreme in your life.
The real gospel of Jesus Christ is not a set of instructions or a to-do-list. Morality in so many churches has been thrown out, and immorality is totally acceptable and legislated by governments. Their church sign should read, “all are welcome, come on in and sin.”
The Apostle Paul said reject someone who preaches another Jesus. II Corinthians 11:4 “4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” We are there right now, because the church world, has adopted a new “GAY JESUS.”
Dear Reader, here is the bottom line and truth in simple terms. You know every one of us has messed up, made mistakes and done thing we should not have. God tells us that is called sin. 1. Sin is a killer and separates us from God. 2. The wages of sin is death Romans 3:23 (that is why we die). 3. Jesus took the punishment of our sins and paid the price for it. 4. Jesus is the Savior. 5. We are the sinners. 6.Jesus came to save sinners. 7. Romans 10:13 For who so ever shall (ASK) call on the name of the Lord, shall be saved. If Jesus Christ is not your personal Lord and Savior, bow right now and ask for forgiveness and a new life, and you will have it.
