Oh my, here we go again! Here’s another question that’s spoken CONTINUALLY among today’s Church world … “Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior?” Are you kidding me? What on God’s green Earth does THAT mean?
Do you want to know the truth? The ONLY time the word “accept” (or some derivative thereof) is used in the Bible, with respect to our salvation, it’s always GOD having to accept US!!! And when will God accept you? ONLY when you DO part “A” in the Salvation Equation … REPENT (turn from your sins)! Listen to these verses:
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalms 19:14)
“The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness” (Proverbs 10:32)
“Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth NOT accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins” (Jeremiah 14:10)
“God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him” (Acts 10:34-35)
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1-2)
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God” (Romans 14:17-18)
“Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (II Corinthians 5:9-10)
“For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; proving what is acceptable unto the Lord” (Ephesians 5:9-10)
“That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour” (I Timothy 2:2-3)
“Wherefore, we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear” (Hebrews 12:28)
See, there’s only ONE “acceptance” taking place in these Bible verses with respect to our salvation … GOD accepts US! Never once does the Bible say, “We need to ACCEPT Jesus, who is God!” Can you imagine? Can you hear the haughtiness, the pride of this statement? What possible right do YOU have to ACCEPT God? Insanity!
Listen, there’s only ONE thing you NEED to DO to obtain eternal life … humble yourself and obey your God! DO what Jesus (God) continually taught … repent of sin and KEEP God’s 10 Love Commandments! It’s ALL just part “A” in the Salvation Equation! And THEN, and ONLY THEN, will you find that GOD will accept YOU! Don’t every forget that. This prideful question “Have you accepted Jesus as your personal saviour” should never again be spoken among Christians. It is yet, just another ambiguous question coined by today’s deceived church world, inspired by Satan, to take the light off of truth (God’s 10 Love Commandments!) and keep you in the dark concerning what you REALLY must DO to obtain salvation (eternal life).
