A Perfect World
In the beginning God created the world and placed man there (Taurat, Genesis 1-2). God created the world perfectly and without any sin.
Man is Separated from God
But man disobeyed God and sinned (Taurat, Genesis 3). This caused man to be separated from God. God, the very source of life, love, and goodness, was distant from man.
Man Will Die Because of Sin
The world was full of sin. There were broken relationships, deceit, lust, greed, hatred, and violence (Romans 1:21-27). Because of all this, man died. He died first physically. After dying physically, he was doomed to die spiritually forever in hell.
Man’s Attempts to Reach God
Man knew that God was the source of all that was good — his very life. Man tried to return to God. He tried to do good things. He studied to learn wisdom. He became religious. He put much effort into returning to God, but it was a failure.
Man’s heart was inclined to sin. God’s perfection could accept no imperfection. Man’s attempts to reach God were like climbing a ladder to heaven. Impossible! “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised” (Romans 1:25).
The Sacrifice for Sin
Now, God is powerful as well as perfect. He can do anything. God is also loving (I John 4:8). He promised from the beginning that He would make a way for man to return to Him (Taurat, Genesis 3:15). But since God is just, he could not simply ignore man’s sin. It had to be punished, and the punishment for all sin is death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a). God’s plan was to send a special sacrifice to take away sin. That sacrifice is shown as a lamb of sacrifice from God. This was Isa Al-Masih (Taurat, Genesis 22:12-14).
Isa Is the Sacrifice for Sin
Isa came down from God into the world (Injil, Luke 2:1-20). This historic event happened 2,000 years ago. Jesus lived aperfect life, taught God’s truth, and did many miracles, but He was hated by the religious leaders. They plotted to kill him. They didn’t understand that it was God’s planfor Isa, the Sacrificial Lamb, to die and take on Himself the punishment for man’s sin.
Isa Overcame Death!
Isa Al-Masih was killed on a cross, but on the third day He was resurrected to life again. Then He returned to heaven where He is Lord of heaven and earth. Only God could do this.
Isa Al-Masih is the Way to Heaven!
Through Isa, God has created a Divine Way to heaven and a way to know God. For all who repent and put their faith in Jesus, God will give a new heart full of His Spirit so that man will want to do what pleases God. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9). He offers forgiveness, power over evil spirits, and eternal life.
All this is free for any person who accepts Jesus as the Deliverer and God’s chosen Lord. Would you like to receive Jesus as your Deliverer?
“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10).
