Crossing over from death to life!

Scripture reading for April 12th:  John 5

Key scriptures for over-comers:  John 5:24  “I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.  I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.”

Salvation is very simple.  Religious people like to make it complicated.  Jesus reduced the requirements from keeping the over 600 laws to simply hearing His word and believing in the Father who sent Him.  According to Jesus, the time for eternal life had already come.  Even those who died in faith would hear His voice and live.  The person who believes in this manner ‘crossed over’ from the realm of death to the realm of eternal life!  There is no other path to receive this gift other than simple faith in God’s word!   Humble people surrender to Jesus the Son and believe in God the Father!

Key scriptures for over-comers:  Child-like faith opens the eternal Door of the kingdom of heaven!  Let’s keep it simple. “When Your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear Your name, O Lord God Almighty.”  (Jeremiah 15:16)
