The land of Canaan belongs to Israel. (Psalm 105: 8-12)

Ephesians 5:14: "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light."

There is Only One Gospel 

 

Ephesians 2:8-10 

 8-“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Salvation is “the gift of God”; A gift can be received or rejected.

 9-”Not of works, lest any man should boast.” A person can only be saved by accepting God’s gift of salvation “through faith”. At the very point when you put your faith in Jesus for salvation the new birth, John 3:3, takes place, in the twinkling of an eye.

 10-“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”  As the direct result of the new birth we begin to produce good works. We can produce good works because we are “His workmanship”.

Conclusion:

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

 1-“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

 2-By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain."  If you didn’t believe in the first place you won’t keep on believing because you didn’t believe in the first place  

 3-"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

 4-And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 5-And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

 6-After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

 7-After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

 8-And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.”

Galatians 1:8-9 

8-“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  

9-As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

  • Law and Grace
  • [Rom 10:4] For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
     
  • [Gal 3:13] Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree:
     
  • [Gal 2:19] For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
     
  • [Gal 2:21] I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
     
  • [Rom 8:2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
     
  • [Rom 7:6] But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
     
  • [Rom 7:9-10] For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
     
  • [Gal 2:16] Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
     
  • [Gal 3:10] For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continues not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
     
[Gal 3:24] Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
