What is that I believe in?
I believe in a God, who created the heavens and the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th day.
I believe that God created human beings as male and female.
I believe that God created Adam from the dust and Eve from the side of Adam.
I believe that Adam and Eve were created in the image of God.
I believe that Adam and Eve sinned against God by eating the forbidden fruit there by disobeying God’s direct command.
I believe in a just and merciful God, a Just God who punished sin, by sending Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, a garden where they had lived and communed with God to a place where they were away from God. And a merciful God who clothed them with animal skin and sent them away with a promise of a Redeemer who will satisfy God’s just wrath and bring them back to commune with Him.
I believe that sin entered the world today through Adam and Eve, all born through them sinners. Sinners who deserve the just wrath of God.
I believe in a God who sent His only son – Jesus, to save the fallen world- the promised Redeemer.
I believe that Jesus came to this world, fully man and fully God, lived and died for the sinners to appease the wrath of God.
I believe that He rose again on the third day and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for the sins of His people.
I believe that those who put their trust in this Jesus, who sinless, died on our behalf to appease the just wrath of God on the cross, will find their hope in Him.A hope for a life that will be restored with God, a hope for a world without sin, pain suffering. A world that will come after Christ returns to Judge all the motives – good and bad of all mankind.
I believe that my advocate Jesus Christ, will vindicate me and I will stand clean in front of God the father.
I believe that people who do not put their trust in this God will be judged justly and will receive eternal damnation, a life away from God , filled with suffering and pain.
I believe that the day of rest, the day with God -without suffering and pain has not yet come.
I believe that while here on earth, God has sent us the Holy Spirit to remind us, teach us and correct us.
I believe that the Bible is the word of God and it is inerrant and is sufficient for any person to know about this God and His statutes, His promises , His work and how I should live a life that would please this God.
I believe that God created me to worship Him and enjoy Him forever.
I believe that I am called to go and tell about this God, His impending wrath and His beautiful plan of salvation to the people who do not know Him.
Yes, I believe in things this world finds it too silly to believe! Call me old school, old fashioned or whatever you want. My God will vindicate me and that is good enough for me!
