2019 – SATURDAY 25 MAY
THE GOSPEL OF REPENTANCE
So many people believe that the message of repentance stopped when Jesus came preaching love and grace.
That is not what the Bible says.
The church must return to the gospel of repentance – before Jesus can return for His church.
REPENTANCE IS THE GOSPEL
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
REPENTANCE IS FORSAKING THE OLD TO FOLLOW THE NEW
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.
Without repentance there will be no obedience.
REPENTANCE MUST ACCOMPANY MIGHTY WORKS
Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent:
Demonstrating heaven without delivering people from hell – is useless.
Without repentance all you have is a performance.
REPENTANCE USHERS IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
It is coming again – the gospel of repentance.
REPENTANCE WAS THE DISCIPLE’S GOSPEL
So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
REPENTANCE IS THE PREREQUISITE FOR PENTECOST
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
WITHOUT THE GOSPEL OF REPENTANCE THERE CAN BE; NO REMISSION OF SIN
NO OBEDIENCE IN SURRENDER
NO POWER IN THE SPIRIT
