Simple Salvation Church of God believes in THE FOLLOWING:
Our Beliefs are not a closed creed, unlike other churches with closed minds and doctrines, we search for new truths all the time. We feel we have open minds and seek further truths in the word as we ourselves grown in Spirit and knowledge.
We teach YEHOVAH/Yahweh ("I Am That I Am" ) this is Hebrew for the Sacred Name of God), Yeshua or some use Y'shua is also (Hebrew, for Gods Only Begotten Son Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.(Matthew 10:20 ) explicitly says "For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you." The meaning, of corse refers to the Holy Spirit as in ( Mark 13:11) which notes, "but when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do you premeditate; but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye; for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost (Spirit)." Again I say "how can The Holy Spirit just be a breath" ?
What is a Christian
Every person who trusts and believes in Jesus Christ-Y'shua Messiah as the only begotten son of God. One who strives to live as Jesus lived, thus being like HIM. A Christian experiences a new birth through The Holy Spirit and is placed by adoption as sons and daughters into a right relationship by GOD'S Grace.The Christians life is characterized by the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Judge Not less you be judged.
(Romans 5:1; Romans 8:9, 14-15; Romans 10: 9-13; John 1:12-13 Mark:8:34; John 3:5-7; Galatians 2:20 ; John 13:35; John 3:16-17)
Is characterized by trusting in and loving the Lord and Savior Yeshua, who loved us FIRST and gave himself for us. Trusting in Jesus Christ is expressed by belief in the gospel and by faith with works of love. Through the Holy Spirit, Christ transforms the hearts of believers, producing in them love, joy, peace, faithfulness, meekness, kindness, goodness,gentleness, self-control, righteousness, and truth.
(Galatians 5:6; Ephesians 5:9; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 John 3:23-24; 1 John 4:20-21;2 Corinthians 5:15)
The Angelic Realm
The holy angels serve God as messengers and agents, they are appointed to attend to those who will obtain salvation, and will accompany Christ at his return. Angels are created ministering spirits, endowed with free will.The disobedient angels are called demons, evil spirits, and unclean spirits.
(Matthew 25:31 ; Matthew 10:1; Mark 1:23; Hebrews 1:14;2 Peter 2:4; Revelation 1:1; Revelation 22:6)
Satan The Devil
Satan,also called The Great Dragon, is the fallen Arch-angel (Lucifer) who heads the evil forces in the spirit realm. Lucifer who became Satan is in constant rebellion against God. The Bible refers to him with such terms as the devil, adversary, evil one, murderer, Father of all lies,thief,tempter, accuser of the brethren, prince of demons, prince of Darkness and god of this world. Through his influence, Satan generates discord, deception, and disobedience among all human beings. In Christ JESUS, Satan is already defeated, and his dominion and influence as god of this world will cease at Christ Jesus' return.
Job 1:6-12;Zechariah 3:1-2;Genesis 3:1-5;John 3:8;John 8:44;Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:9&10;1 Peter 5:8 ; 2 Corinthians 4:4;Hebrews 2:14; Revelation 20:1-3 )
The Gospel also called the Good news
Is the good news of salvation by God's grace through faith in Y'shua --Jesus Christ. >It is the message that Christ died for all sins, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, that he appeared to his disciples, and that he ascended to God's right hand where He sits now. It is the good news that through the saving work of Yeshua the Christ we may enter the kingdom of God.That we must live by the "Golden Rule" which is LOVE EVERYONE as your own self, not just a few people but, EVERYONE. That He is coming again one day to set up His Father Yahweh's Kingdom here on earth and rule for 1,000 years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords for all mankind to bow down and know who God is! ALL WILL BE SAVED!
(1 Corinthians 15:1-5; Luke 24: 46-48; John 3:16; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 5:31;Mark 1:14-15; Acts 8:12; Acts 28: 30-31)
God's people are to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus, the Mediator and High Priest at God's throne. Prayer is to be offered at all times, for all people,for God's will to be done, and with thanksgiving and confession.The sick are to call for the elders of the church to anoint them with oil and pray for their healing. Those who call upon the NAME OF JESUS, Y'shua individually or collectively, will have their prayers answered in accordance with Yahweh the Fathers will, and whatever the immediate purpose, prayer should be that God's Will be done on earth as in heaven!
(Matthew 6:10; I John 5:14-15). We must forgive to be forgiven Matthew 6:14 The Holy Spirit will help us to pray
(Romans 8:26-27).When we ask in faith and in the Name of Yeshua Messiah, He will hear (John 15:16; James 1:6-7;Hebrews 4:14-16; John 14:13-14; 1 Timothy 2:1-8; 1 Thessalonians 5:17;Philips 4:6; James 5:14-16; 1 John 5:14; Matthew 6:9-13.
God's Grace is the free unmerited favor of God the Father! A GIFT FOR EACH ONE OF US!
He has chosen to bestow on his entire people and His whole creation, In its broadest sense, God's grace is expressed in every act of his self-disclosure in love. By this grace, humanity and the entire cosmos have been redeemed from sin and death through Yeshua Christ, and it is by grace alone! WE WILL ALL BE SAVED,humans are empowered to know and love God and his son Yeshua--Jesus the Christ and enter the joy of eternal salvation of the kingdom of God (Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 John 2:1-2; Romans 3:24; Romans 5:2;Colossians 1:20;Romans 8:19-21;John 1:12;Titus 3:7; Romans 5:15-21)
What about Sin?
SIN is rebellion against God and His commandments a curse of sin can only be removed by God's grace through Jesus Christ / Yeshua's Blood! ALL humans are sinners, all humans need the salvation God offers through his Son Yeshua Messiah. Once you except Yeshua and say his name out loud and believe ,you are saved by His Blood-this is true Salvation-- everything else is Man's RELIGION! IT IS NOT YOUR RELIGION OR YOUR CHURCH That is going to do the job. NONE OF THESE THINGS CAN or will not SAVE YOU! ONLY BY GODS GRACE &THE BLOOD OF His son JESUS /YESHUA ARE WE SAVED! (Mark 7:21-23; Galatians 5:19-21; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:12; 1 John 3:4; Romans 3:23-24;Romans 7:24-25; Hebrews 9:15)
Faith in God is a gift of God, rooted in his incarnate Son and enlightened by his eternal Word through the witness of the Holy Spirit in the Scriptures. Faith in God prepares and enables our minds and emotions to understand and receive God's gracious gift of salvation. It empowers us to participate in spiritual fellowship and committed to God Almighty through Jesus Christ and by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the author and perfecter of our faith, and it is through faith and that not by any works or doing some laws , we are saved by grace. Jesus--Yeshua Messiah did it by hanging on the cross and His blood is what has bought your Salvation forever more !
(John 1:1-4; Romans 12:3; Acts 3:16; Ephesians 2:8; Hebrews 11:1; Romans 5:1-2; Acts15:19; Romans 1:17; 1 Corinthians 2:5; Acts 14:27 Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 12:2)
The Plan of Salvation
God provided the way of salvation for all humanity by Yeshua Messiah you see Jesus is a made up name where the son's name is Hebrew is " Yeshua" It is he who gained this redemption by His sinless life, His atoning death, and His resurrection. In this, Yeshua Messiah became our legal representative in heaven. Through His merits, forgiveness of sin and the assurance of eternal life, belongs to all those who believe in and accepts God's plan of salvation through Christ. Y'shua died for ALL sins so, HE could purchased eternal salvation for ALL who continue in the faith. (1 Timothy 2:6) ;ACTS 4:12 : John 3:16; John 6:40; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Peter 1:18, 19; 2:21-24;Romans 3:23-25; 5:1, 6-11; Hebrews 4:15; Colossians 1:20-23; Luke 3:6)
Assurance of Salvation
The Bible affirms that all whose faith remains in Yeshua will be saved, and that nothing "can snatch them out of his hand." The Bible emphasizes the infinite faithfulness of the Lord, the total sufficiency of Jesus Christ for our salvation, the dynamic love of God for all peoples, and the gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Having such assurance of salvation, believers are urged to remain firm in the faith and to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Yeshua Messiah. Y'shua is the real name for Jesus ,use it when you pray and you will see more power in your prayers. (John 10:27-29; Hebrews 6:4-6; Romans 1:16; Hebrews 4:14; John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22;2 Peter 3:18; 2 Timothy 1:9; 1 Corinthians 15:2)
Repentance toward a gracious God is a change of mind and attitude, it is not just saying "I AM SORRY" YOU have to change from your old sinful ways of living ,prompted by the Holy Spirit and grounded in the Word of God everyone can change (repent of their past lives). It includes an awareness of personal sinfulness and accompanies a new life sanctified through faith in JESUS / Yeshua Messiah
(Acts 2:38; Romans 12:2; Romans 2:4; Matthew 3:11; 2 Peter 3:9)
Justification is God's gracious act in and through Yeshua or Christ to pronounce and establish a believer as righteous in his sight. Thus, humanity experiences through faith in Jesus Christ divine forgiveness and peace with its Savior and Lord.You Are Saved by Your Faith In Y'shua=JESUS CHRIST
(Galatians 2:16; Romans 5:9-10; Romans 3:21-31;Romans 4:1-8)
Sanctification is God's gracious act of accounting and imparting the righteousness and holiness of Y'shua /Jesus Christ/ to the believer. It is experienced through faith in Him and accomplished through the in dwelling presence of the Holy Spirit He was sent by the Father to guide us to our Almighty Himself.
(1 John 1: 8-9;Romans 6: 22;Romans 6:11;Galatians 5:22-23; 2 Thessalonians 2:13)
The Sabbath Day
We believe that one day out of seven is the Sabbath unto God (Exodus 20:10) and that the 12 tribes of Israel where to keep it: (Deuteronomy 5:15) and it was as a sign between them and the Lord God when they came out of sin, Elohim took them out of Egypt to learn his laws because for over 400 years they did not know their God or his laws which showed what sin is (Exodus 31:16-17)
We believe Christ Jesus -Yeshua became our Sabbath (Hebrews 4:8; Col 2:16-17);Hebrews 4:9-11) There remaineth therefore a rest (Gr. Sabbatismos) to the people of God) All New Testament Christians who know their Bible and follow Y'shua, know for sure that He is our SABBATH OF SPIRITUAL REST. You see Gentiles of the New Testament (most of us today) where never commanded to keep a seventh Day Sabbath! Except those who converted to the Jewish way of life.
NO WHERE are we commanded to go to Church on a certain day Saturday or Sunday or any other Day! The 4Th commandment was a foreshadowing of the coming of Christ,Yeshua who came and Jesus fulfill all the laws while hanging on a tree over 2,000 years ago. Yes, Yeshua Messiah finished the written codes and took them to the cross and by him- YESHUA / JESUS IS OUR REST FOREVER.
We believe Christ became our Sabbath read it for yourself, in your own Bibles .(Hebrews 4:8-10 and Matthew 11:28-30);Col 2:16-17). There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God (Hebrews 4:9-11)
Notice : The DAY OF THE LORD is never called the Sabbath. The true Sabbath is LIFE and FAITH in Jesus Christ, in whom every believer finds spiritual rest. The weekly Sabbath Day, in the Ten Commandments, was a shadow that prefigured the true Reality-of who JESUS is- and to whom it pointed AS our Lord and Savior-who (Finished) all the law! Look at the word (fulfilled) it Means (complete) Jesus completed all the Law because he was the only one who could! We are all complete by our YESHUA MESSIAH,Jesus the Christ who the Jews Killed by their Law.
Yeshua Messiah, fulfilled (Finished) the law by, hanging on the cross for all mankind to be saved. Therefore We keep each day in the Spirit of the law, for everyday is already fulfilled in the Lord . This is what Spirit of the Law means ! Look this up in your own Bibles people, it is up to you and God. Read the word from God do not just take a minister's word--we may be WRONG? Check and see for yourself ( Matthew.11:28-30;Exodus 20:8-11;Colossians 2:16-17; Hebrews 4:3,8-10)
Worship is the divinely created response to the glory of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, It is motivated by divine love and springs from God's revelation of himself in communion with his creation. Worship involves humbly and joyfully giving God priority in all things and is expressed in such actions and attitudes as prayer, praise, singing, celebration, generosity, acts of mercy, and repentance. (It is NOT IN JUST GOING TO SOME CHURCH) YOU ARE THE CHURCH " WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME THERE I WILL BE ALSO" Jesus Himself said this.
(Hebrews 5:8-11; Hebrews 12:28; Ephesians 5:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9-10; 1 John 4: 19; Philippians 2:5-11; John 4:23; Colossians 3:16-17)
Water baptism, which signifies a believer's repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ /Yeshua Messiah as Lord and Savior, is a participation in the death and resurrection of Christ. Baptism of the Spirit and fire refers to the regenerating and purifying work of the Holy Spirit which comes to you after you receive Baptism. We baptize in the Name of the Father,Son and Holy Ghost ,and by the name of Jesus /Yeshua then by immersion in Water and laying on of hands, then the Lord Baptizes you with fire!
(Luke 3:16; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:4-5;1 Peter 1: 3-9; Matthew 3:16; Acts 1:22)
The Lord's Supper
The evening before Yeshua Messiah was crucified, he took bread and the cup of wine,saying,"Take for This is my body, which is broken for you.Then he took the cup of wine(not grape juice) and said " This cup is the new covenant in my blood."
THE NEW TESTAMENT STARTED THAT NIGHT and Whenever we celebrate the Lord's Supper "as often as you do this,do it in remembrance of me". Some teach only once a year ,where We partake with bread and the cup of wine in remembrance of our Savior, proclaiming his death until he comes when needed ,or as the Spirit moves us! The Lord's Supper is a participation in the death and resurrection of our Lord,who gave his body and shed his blood so that we might be forgiven of all our sins.It is a renewing of soul and mind and not to be taken lightly.Thus no one under 18 years of age should take it. Of coarse there are a few exceptions of maturity of a person!
(1 Corinthians 11:23-26; 1 Corinthians 10:16; Mark 14:18-26;Matthew 26:17-19, 26-29; Luke 22:19, 20)
Love Offerings or Freely Giving
Your generosity to God and His church,as one who freely gives shows, the responsibility of offering a portion of one's financial resources to the work of the body of Christ. Donations fund the God-given mission of the church to preach the gospel and feed the flock. Such giving reflects the believer's worship, faith, obedience, and love for God, who is the Source of salvation and Giver of all good things. People know a church needs funds to stay open for services like paying for a building,lights,phone,etc------
Giving from the heart is what God wants He doesn't need our money.
10% &20% Tithes WAS DONE AWAY WITH WHEN THE PRIEST ALL DIED in 70 A.D.
(1 Corinthians 9:1-14; 2 Corinthians 9:6-11; 1 Peter 4:10; Genesis 4:3;)
OUR Church Leadership
The Head of the church is the living YESHUA Messiah/Jesus Christ, who reveals the will of the Father to the church through the Holy Spirit. Through the Scriptures the Holy Spirit instructs, and empowers, the church to serve the needs of it's congregations. We at Simple Salvation Church of God continually seek to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit in serving congregations. As it's ordained followers we strive to be leaders for Christ Jesus/Y'SHUA MESSIAH.
(John 16:13-15; John 3:21; Ephesians 4:11-16; Ephesians 1:15-23; Colossians 1: 18)
Prophecy, Signs of the Times
Bible prophecy was given for our instruction and warning, that we might know, history is moving toward its ultimate climax. Today's events and human conditions confirm the Word of God and the certainty of Jesus Christ returning soon. These fulfillment emphasize the call for sinners to flee from the wrath to come, and the call for believers to come out of religious confusion. The Churches who preach Doctrines of Men and Laws of Old should wake up from their sleep.We are a new being by the New Testament written 60 years after Yeshua died -think about it, there was no new testament for the 1ST century church to live by.
(2 Peter 1:19-21; Luke 21:5-36; 2 Timothy 3:1-7; Revelation 14:9-12; 18:4)
The Regathering of Israel
The Scriptures contain many promises that the descendants of the children of Israel shall return to inhabit the lands of the Bible (formerly called Palestine)This was fulfilled in 1948 when Israel became a nation,all those who set dates before this failed in their preaching. This prophecy is being fulfilled in Israel today, and the events of the Middle East continually signal that the return of Jesus Christ is imminent.WATCH FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE to be built IN ISRAEL SOON and then the Man of Sin to be revealed ! (Isaiah 11:11, 12; Jeremiah 31:7-12; 32:37-44; Ezekiel 37:21-28; 38:8-16;Amos 9:11-15; Luke 21:20-24, 31; Psalm 102:16; Matt:24:31-35)
The Second Coming of Christ
Christ will return to Earth in fulfillment of an often repeated Bible prophecy. He will come audibly, visibly, bodily,and suddenly, in the clouds of heaven,as He departed.
DO NOT LET ANYONE FOOL YOU! No one knows the day or hour of His coming; but there is more reason than ever to believe it is near. Human history has this appointment,and believers live in this expectation: Christ is coming back to Earth to consummate the plan of redemption and salvation of all mankind.
(John 14:1- 3; Acts 1:7-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16;; Matthew 25:31, 32; Mark 8:38; 13:32; Job 19:25-27; Luke 17:22-37; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7; Revelation:6-9;Revelation 19:13-16; Revelation 22:12)
God is preserving the faithful until the day of resurrection to be rewarded,and is reserving the wicked until the Day of Judgment to be punished. At the second advent of Jesus Christ, the righteous dead will be raised to immortality and to the rewards of their service on the new earth. (John 5:28,29;Acts 24:15;Revelation 22:12;1Thess 4:16;1 Cor.15:20-23,51-53;1 Peter 1:5;
2 Peter 2:9; Job 19:25-27;2 Timothy 4:1; Revelation 5:10; 20:5,11-15 Romans 6:23;
Ezekiel 18:4, 20; Malachi 4:1-3)
The Reward of Believers
Salvation and eternal life in Yeshua/Jesus as children of God, in communion with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. True believers will have their inheritance reserved in heaven to be bestowed fully at the second coming of Christ. The resurrected saints will reign with Christ in the kingdom of God for a 1,000 years,Then Almighty God will come to earth to rule and live with His children forever in a New Earth and Heaven. (Revelation 5:10; 1 John 3:1-2)Romans 8;16-21; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 John 2:25; Colossians 1:13; Daniel 7:27; 1 John 3:1-2;
At the end of the age, God will gather all the living and the dead before the heavenly white throne of Christ for judgment. Yeshua our Lord makes gracious and just provision for all, even for those who at death appear not to have believed the gospel.
(Matthew 25:31- 32; John 5:28-29; John 12:32; Acts 24:15; Acts 10:43;1 Corinthians 15:22-28; Revelation 20:11-15;1Timothy 2:3-6; 2 Peter 3:9)
In the New Testament, hell is referred to by the terms: " lake of fire," outerdarkness," or "Gehenna" which is a gorge outside Jerusalem even today ,where garbage is still burned. We believe there is NO EVER BURNING HELL! (but a ever burning lake of fire)The biblical terms Sheol and Hades, often translated "hell" or "the grave," by the King James Bible refers to the realm of the dead. NOT PEOPLE BURNING day and night forever and ever, LIKE MOST Churches TEACH TODAY?
Hell is the separation and alienation from God chosen by incorrigible sinners. The Bible teaches that unrepentant sinners will suffer the second death (from which there is no resurrection ) in the lake of fire which burns forever, (note here that : " people are not burning forever")This is false dogma,brought drown from the mother church (Catholic Church)Passed down to all Modern Protestant Churches and Fed to the people of blind faith who do not read their Bibles themselves but, take the word of some Church leader like the Pope or their own Pastor! Some big churches which still are teaching false doctrines, where taught these same Doctrines from some headquarters some where,who would fire them all if they preached what their Bibles really say!. Please read these scriptures before you make up your minds this isn't true? (Matthew 13:42;Matthew 10:28;Revelation 20:14-15; Hebrews 10:27;2 Thessalonians 1:8-9;Revelation 21:8; Matthew 25:41,46;Hebrews 12:29;2 Peter 3:7;Psalm 49:14-15)
The Kingdom: Present, Millennial, and Eternal
The kingdom of God (kingdom of heaven) is realized in three phases:
The spiritual kingdom of grace exists now as God rules in the lives of obedient believers. Although God's kingdom has always been, it was publicly announced and most clearly revealed in Jesus Christ. We become its citizens when we turn from our sins to faith in Jesus Christ.
The millennial kingdom begins with the Second Advent. Jesus Christ our Lord will reign on the throne of His glory and put all enemies under His feet. This is the time of restoration of the earth, when the redeemed shall rule with Jesus Christ on earth for one thousand years. At the close of the millennium 1,000 years, the New Jerusalem will come down from heaven.We will be judges and priest and reign with Jesus for 1,000 years-think about that me beloved saints?
The eternal kingdom of God will come to pass when Jesus Christ turns the kingdom over to his Father. Then God will dwell with His people in the New Heavens and the New Earth, where there will be righteousness and peace forever with no defilement, disappointment, or death.
