Although God banished Adam and Eve from the garden, He didn’t leave them without hope of heaven. He promised He would send a sinless Sacrifice to take the punishment they deserved (Genesis 3:15). Until then, men would sacrifice innocent lambs, showing their repentance from sin and faith in the future Sacrifice from God who would bear their penalty. God reaffirmed His promise of the Sacrifice with men such as Abraham and Moses. Herein lies the beauty of God’s perfect plan: God Himself provided the only sacrifice (Jesus) who could atone for the sins of His people. God’s perfect Son fulfilled God’s perfect requirement of God’s perfect law. It is perfectly brilliant in its simplicity. “For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
God cannot let sin go unpunished. To bear our own sins would be to suffer God’s judgment in the flames of hell. Praise God, He kept His promise to send and sacrifice the perfect Lamb to bear the sins of those who trust in Him. Jesus had to die because He is the only one who can pay the penalty for our sins.
Also, because God is just, sin requires a penalty. God cannot merely forgive in mercy until the demands of justice have been met. Thus the need for a sacrifice before forgiveness is possible. The shedding of the blood of animals, as Hebrews points out, could only "cover" sin for a time (Hebrews 10:4) until the intended and sufficient sacrifice was made in Christ's atoning death.
Salvation Plan from Romans
Salvation Plan from the Gospel of John
"That You May Know" Salvation Plan from 1 John
When Jesus is called the Lamb of God in John 1:29 and John 1:36, it is referring to Him as the perfect and ultimate sacrifice for sin. In order to understand who Christ was and what He did, we must begin with the Old Testament, which contains prophecies concerning the coming of Christ as a “guilt offering” (Isaiah 53:10). In fact, the whole sacrificial system established by God in the Old Testament set the stage for the coming of Jesus Christ, who is the perfect sacrifice God would provide as atonement for the sins of His people (Romans 8:3; Hebrews 10).

Do not let this be YOU!
to Get Saved!
|It's so simple to get saved, people are
deceived in thinking it can't be that simple. BUT IT IS! The apostle
Paul warns, in 2 Corinthians 11:3 of Satan deceiving you by the simplicity
in Jesus Christ.
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST." 2 Corinthians 11:3
You know what? You can be saved right now. You can be saved right where you are! This very minuteHow to be Saved?
- Realize you are a sinner.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10- Realize you will face JUDGEMENT because of your sins.
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT:" Hebrews 9:27- Realize you CAN NOT save yourself.
"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; ..." Isaiah 64:6- Realize that on the cross Jesus Christ took upon Himself your sins .
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24- Simply receive Jesus Christ by faith as your personal Savior
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" John 1:12
Salvation is trusting and receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior. It's trusting in the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary to pay for your sins! It's realizing there is absolutely nothing whatsoever you can do to save yourself and completely trusting in Jesus Christ to save you! It's not any church that saves. It's not any baptism, not good works, not sacraments, not repenting, not praying through, not living a good life — IT'S NOT ANYTHING YOU CAN DO!
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God:
Now isn't that plain? NOT OF YOURSELVES. . . NOT OF WORKS. . .HOW TO BE SAVED?
Would you like to receive the gift salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation!
"God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal life! Amen!"
If you just prayed that prayer — according to the Word of God — YOU ARE SAVED! HALLELUJAH!
You say, but I don't feel any different. Guess what? Your salvation does
not depend on your feeling. It ALL depends on doing what God SAID!
God said if you receive and trust in Jesus Christ you are saved. Notice it does NOT say you "might" or "could" be saved — but "shall be saved". YOU ARE SAVED!
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10:13
Didn't you just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ? Look at what John 3:36 says! It says you HATH EVERLASTING LIFE! Not "maybe" or "hope so" — BUT HATH — YOU ARE SAVED!
He that believeth on the Son HATH EVERLASTING LIFE: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36Friend, if you prayed the prayer and received Jesus Christ — YOU ARE SAVED! You did what God said — AND GOD CANNOT LIE!
In hope of eternal life, which God, THAT CANNOT LIE, promised before the world began; Titus 1:2
What to do next?
Tell somebody about Jesus. Go tell someone when you get through reading this that you just got saved. Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell the world! Try to find someone everyday you can tell about Jesus.And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. Acts 5:42
