WMB.: Like the Philippian jailer that night, when he said, "What must I do to be saved?" What will we do? We tell him what not to do. "You got to quit doing this, you got to quit going over there. You got to quit doing this." He never asked what he had to quit doing, doing. He asked what could he do to be saved? Right! Paul told in no misunderstanding words, he said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." That's all.
Jn.3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Jn.3:18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Jn.3:36: 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. Jn.6:47: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. Jn.7:38-39: He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Jn.1:26: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? Jn.12:46: I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 1Jn.5:1: Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 1Jn.5:5: Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
WMB.: "Oh, I believe it." You intellectually believe it. But if you really believe it, everything in this Bible is yours. WMB.: See, so many a revivals are going across the country and people are claiming to be saved, and great evangelists saying they had so many thousands saved and so forth. And then you go back and find out those people don't stay. They just an emotion in the meeting, and their worked away. Many people in the meeting raise up and claim healing and walk away, more by emotion or more by psychic than they do by real Divine revelation of the Lord Jesus. WMB.: Stop thinking about whether "I should do this or do that?" I'm asking you one solid thing: Have you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ? If you truly believe, I'll prove by the Bible that you have Everlasting Life and cannot perish. "He that heareth My Words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life."
John 2:23-24: Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, The words believed in John 2:23 and commit in John 2:24 are the same Greek word. These people believed in Jesus, but He did not believe (put His trust or confidence) in them! It was one thing to respond to a miracle but quite something else to commit oneself to Jesus Christ and continue in His Word.
Acts 8:35-37: Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
True believing is: The act of considering Jesus worthy of trust as to His character and motives. The act of placing confidence in His ability to do just what He says He will do. The act of entrusting the salvation of one’s soul into the hands of the Lord Jesus.
Mark 10:8-9: And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 1 Cor 11:8-9: For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
Rom.12:3: For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Eph 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Acts13:48: And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. Ordain: to assign to a place, to appoint, to determine.
John 10:25-27: Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
John 18:37: Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." 2Thess.2:13: But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,
John 1:12: 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: 1Thess.2:13: For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe. Gal.3:2: Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?]
