IT IS FINISHED!
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath (Hell) through Him. Romans 5:9
We who are born again by repenting of our sins and transgressions have been pardoned and delivered from an eternal death sentence, being enemies of God! The gospel being preached today has been watered down and sugar coated to the extent that sinners are not convicted of breaking the laws of God!
If John the baptist was alive today he would empty out these Mega churches with a gospel so foreign to them that they would think he was a false prophet! In his day he was preaching a baptism of repentance and multitudes were coming to be baptized, but John stopped them dead in their tracks, saying, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?" Therefore forth bring forth fruits worthy of repentance!"
In order for one to be saved, he must be convicted that he is indeed a sinner, an enemy of God, who has rebelled against His laws and guilty, sentenced to eternal damnation! As John preached, the people cried out in anguish and said, "What shall we do?" John answered and told them to repent!
For if we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10
