Are you satisfied with just Half the Gospel?Many claim to preach the “Full Gospel.” But do they?
The Acid TestJesus Christ is the essence of the Gospel What you believe about Him will determine the integrity of the Gospel you preach!
Listen to your Church‟s baptismal confession “Do you believe in Jesus Christ, God‟s only son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead?”
What does that question say about Jesus? That Jesus Christ is: • Son of God, Son of Man • Born of a virgin • Lamb of God who died for our sins • Raised to life on third day • Ascended to heaven• Is High Priest & Advocate before God
If that‟s all you hear about Jesus Christ, That‟s just HALF the Gospel!
Next, ask your pastor/leader: “Who is Jesus today?” He might say:“He is our High Priest & Advocate before God” If that‟s all you hear, That‟s just HALF the Gospel!
It‟s this „Half-Gospel‟ that makes manyEvangelical/Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches preach JUST Forgiveness of Sins & “Personal” Salvation!
It‟s this „Half-Gospel‟ that makes manyEvangelical/Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches reduce Jesus Christ to a lowly “Personal” Lord
It‟s this „Half-Gospel‟ that makes manyEvangelical/Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches look at the world and say, “Why should we even try to change anything? All these things are destined for a big fire!”
Wake up!Do not be deceived It‟s time to learn!
