And YOU (Believers) He (Jesus Christ) MADE ALIVE, who WERE DEAD in trespasses and sins, in which YOU (Believers) ONCE WALKED according to The Course of This World (Satan), according to the prince (Satan) of the power of the air, the spirit (Satan) who NOW WORKS in the sons of disobedience (Unbelievers), AMONG WHOM also We (Believers) ALL once conducted Ourselves (Believers) in the lusts of Our (Believers) Flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and WERE, BY NATURE, children of wrath (GOD Almighty’s WRATH), just as The Others (Unbelievers).
BUT GOD (GOD Almighty), Who IS Rich IN MERCY, because of His (GOD Almighty’s) Great LOVE with which He (GOD Almighty) LOVED Us (Believers), EVEN WHEN We (Believers) WERE DEAD in trespasses, MADE Us (Believers) ALIVE Together WITH Christ (BY GRACE, YOU have been SAVED), and RAISED Us (Believers) UP Together, and MADE Us (Believers) SIT TOGETHER IN The Heavenly Places IN Christ Jesus, that IN The Ages To Come He (GOD Almighty) MIGHT SHOW The Exceeding Riches of His (GOD Almighty’s) GRACE in His (GOD Almighty’s) KINDNESS TOWARD Us (Believers) IN Christ Jesus. For BY GRACE YOU (Believers) have been SAVED, THROUGH FAITH, and that NOT of Yourselves (Believers); IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD (GOD Almighty), NOT of works, Lest ANYONE should boast. For We (Believers) ARE His (GOD Almighty’s) WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN Christ Jesus FOR Good Works, which GOD (GOD Almighty) PREPARED BEFOREHAND that We (Believers) Should WALK IN THEM (GOD Almighty’s Good Works).
Therefore remember that YOU (Believers), ONCE Gentiles in the flesh (Unbelievers) who are called Uncircumcision, by what is called The Circumcision made in the flesh by hands that AT THAT TIME, YOU (Believers) were WITHOUT Christ (Jesus Christ), BEING ALIENS from The Commonwealth of Israel and STRANGERS from The Covenants of Promise, having NO Hope and WITHOUT GOD (GOD Almighty) in The World (Satan). BUT Now, IN Christ Jesus, YOU (Believers), who ONCE were FAR OFF, have been BROUGHT NEAR, BY The BLOOD of Christ (Jesus Christ).
For He (Jesus Christ) Himself IS Our (Believers) Peace, Who has MADE BOTH One, and has BROKEN DOWN The Middle Wall of SEPARATION (SIN), having ABOLISHED IN His (Jesus Christ’s) Flesh, the enmity (SIN), THAT IS, The Law of Commandments, contained in Ordinances, so as to CREATE IN Himself (Jesus Christ) One New Man FROM The Two, thus MAKING PEACE, and that He (Jesus Christ) might RECONCILE Them BOTH to GOD (GOD Almighty) in One Body THROUGH The Cross, thereby Putting to Death the enmity (SIN). And He (Jesus Christ) CAME and PREACHED Peace to YOU (Believers) who were AFAR OFF and to Those (Unbelievers) who WERE NEAR. For THROUGH Him (Jesus Christ), We (Believers) both have ACCESS by One Spirit (The Holy Spirit) to The Father (GOD Almighty).
Now, therefore, YOU (Believers) are NO longer STRANGERS and FOREIGNERS, but FELLOW CITIZENS with The Saints (Believers) and Members (Children) of The Household (The KINGDOM) of GOD (GOD Almighty), having been BUILT on The Foundation of The Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself BEING The Chief Cornerstone, IN Whom, The Whole Building, BEING Fitted Together, GROWS into a Holy Temple IN The LORD (Jesus Christ), IN Whom, YOU (Believers) also are BEING Built Together for a Dwelling Place of GOD (GOD Almighty) in The Spirit (The Holy Spirit).
After this, Jesus (Jesus Christ), KNOWING that ALL THINGS were now ACCOMPLISHED, that The Scripture might BE FULFILLED, said, “I thirst!” Now, a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His (Jesus Christ’s) Mouth. So, when Jesus (Jesus Christ) had received the sour wine, He (Jesus Christ) SAID, “IT IS FINISHED!” And bowing His (Jesus Christ’s) Head, He (Jesus Christ) GAVE UP His (Jesus Christ’s) Spirit.
And it happened, as They (Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary The Mother of James, and the other women with Them) were Greatly Perplexed about this, that Behold, Two Men (Two of GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels) stood by Them (The Certain Women) in SHINING GARMENTS. Then, as They (The Certain Women) were afraid and bowed Their (The Certain Women’s) Faces to The Earth, They (Two of GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels) SAID to Them (The Certain Women), “Why do YOU seek The LIVING among the dead? He (Jesus Christ) is NOT here, but IS RISEN! Remember how He (Jesus Christ) SPOKE to YOU when He (Jesus Christ) was still in Galilee, SAYING, ‘The Son of Man (Jesus Christ) MUST BE Delivered into the hands of sinful men (Unbelievers), and BE Crucified, and The Third Day RISE AGAIN.’”
Fellow Believers, We (Believers) were ONCE Under GOD Almighty’s WRATH, and set to RECEIVE His (GOD Almighty’s) Righteous Judgment for Our (Believers) sins, and Rightfully so, because We (Believers), like All Mankind, ARE SINNERS, and We (Believers) KNOW there is NO ONE Righteous, NOT even one. Please remember, We (Believers) are ALL sinners, just as much as Yet-To-Be-Believers and Unbelievers, BUT The Difference BETWEEN Us (Believers) and Them (Yet-To-Be-Believers and Unbelievers), IS THIS, We (Believers) REALIZE We (Believers) NEED A Savior (Jesus Christ). Yes, WITHOUT Jesus Christ, We (Believers) have ABSOLUTELY NO Chance to EVER be IN GOD Almighty’s Immediate Presence, and We (Believers) KNOW THIS Wholeheartedly. But WITH Jesus Christ, We (Believers) KNOW, without a shadow of a doubt, that We (Believers) Will BE, IN GOD Almighty’s Immediate Presence.
This is NOT something that We (Believers) have EARNED; for there is NOT enough “good things” We (Believers) could EVER do to EARN Our (Believers) Way. IT IS The GIFT of GOD (GOD Almighty), accomplished BY Jesus Christ, THROUGH Jesus Christ, FROM His (Jesus Christ’s) Death upon The Cross TO His (Jesus Christ’s) Resurrection from The Grave, BY The Hand of GOD Almighty, Himself. In Jesus Christ’s Own WORDS, “IT IS FINISHED!” Meaning and this is VERY IMPORTANT, Jesus Christ Accomplished EVERYTHING necessary for Our (Believers) Salvation, EVERYTHING! For BY GRACE YOU (Believers) have been SAVED, THROUGH FAITH, and that NOT of Yourselves (Believers); IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD (GOD Almighty)! Please, do NOT let ANYONE Tell YOU (Believers) otherwise!
Fellow Believers, what MUST a person do to receive a gift? The answer is ACCEPT IT! It truly IS that simple. Now, We (Mankind) actually have two choices, when it comes to a gift, to ACCEPT it OR to REJECT it. As sinners, We (Mankind) All have the same Two Choices, when it comes to GOD Almighty’s FREE GIFT of Salvation. Now, unlike other gifts We (Mankind) can accept or reject, We (Believers) KNOW what GOD Almighty’s FREE GIFT of Salvation IS. Unlike other gifts, which MUST be OPENED to see what it is, We (Believers) already KNOW what We (Believers) Will RECEIVE when We (Believers) ACCEPT GOD Almighty’s FREE GIFT of Salvation, and conversely, We (Believers) also KNOW what We (Believers) would receive, by default, IF We (Believers) had REJECTED, GOD Almighty’s FREE Gift of Salvation.
Now, because We (Believers) have ACCEPTED GOD Almighty’s FREE GIFT of Salvation, We (Believers), The Children of GOD Almighty, Brothers and Sisters of Jesus Christ, We (Believers) Will All Be IN GOD Almighty’s Immediate Presence, WITH Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, and GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels, for Eternity, Forever. Amen.
