The Only Way to Know God
Find His Forgiveness!!
The Book of Genesis,
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and
over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that
creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;
male and female created he them.
The Book of Genesis,
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress
it and to keep it.
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat:
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of
it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
The Book of Genesis,
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD
God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not
eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees
of the garden:
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God
hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be
opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was
pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of
the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and
he did eat.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;
and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the
cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of
the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because
I was naked; and I hid myself.
And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the
tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me
of the tree, and I did eat.
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done?
And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this,
thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon
thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed
and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know
good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the
tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till
the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden
Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of
the tree of life.
So here we find Adam, the first man,
and Eve his wife, Rebels against God. Driven from the garden of Eden that
was created for them. Their sin handed down to every generation of man
through Adam's blood.
But God had a plan !!
The Book of The Prophet Isaiah,
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of
a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and
we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did
esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own
way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he
is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers
is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his
generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the
transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;
because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when
thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he
shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by
his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall
divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto
death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of
many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
But now we have God's Promise that he would redeem fallen man, that he
loved more than his own life. That God would provide a final sacrifice
to pay the blood debt that all men owe because of Adam's sin.
The Book of Saint John,
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made
that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men
through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew
He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
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:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and
God Had no one to pay Man's debt, no one who was Holy in his sight,
except Himself. So God, Who created everything that exists, took on
the body of a man, but unlike Adam, he never sinned. He, being perfect,
could pay man's debt.
The Book of Saint John,
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.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that
the world through him might be saved.
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.
The Book of Saint Matthew,
When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people
took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius
Pilate the governor.
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned,
repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief
priests and elders,
Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they
said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and
went and hanged himself.
And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for
to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury
Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And
they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued,
whom they of the children of Israel did value;
And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.
And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art
thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness
And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled
Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a
prisoner, whom they would.
And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will
ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying,
Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many
things this day in a dream because of him.
But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should
ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that
I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called
Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the
more, saying, Let him be crucified.
When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult
was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying,
I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our
Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he
delivered him to be crucified.
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and
gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and
a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him,
saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put
his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they
compelled to bear his cross.
And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a
place of a skull,
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted
thereof, he would not drink.
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might
be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among
them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
And sitting down they watched him there;
And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF
Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and
another on the left.
And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders,
He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let
him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said,
I am the Son of God.
The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli,
lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth
And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with
vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the
bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy
city, and appeared unto many.
Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the
earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying,
Truly this was the Son of God.
And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from
Galilee, ministering unto him:
Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and
the mother of Zebedee's children.
When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph,
who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the
body to be delivered.
And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he
rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the
Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests
and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive,
After three days I will rise again.
Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest
his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He
is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye
So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a
Had Satan Won? Was this the end?
Had God's plan failed?
The Book of Saint Matthew,
In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the
week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and
sat upon it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know
that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where
the Lord lay.
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and,
behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and
did run to bring his disciples word.
And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All
hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go
into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and
shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they
gave large money unto the soldiers,
Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we
And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure
So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is
commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where
Jesus had appointed them.
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and,
lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Jesus Christ is risen from the dead!!
He is victorious over Death, Hell, and the Grave!!
Would you like to accept God's plan
for mankind into your life? If so please pray this prayer with me.
"Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you as a sinner. Born into sin by
Adam's blood. I accept your Death, Burial and Resurrection as God's perfect sacrifice for my
sins. I want to have fellowship with you and God the Father. I forsake Satan and his kingdom
of darkness and renounce him in my life. I Repent of my sins. Please cleanse my heart, live
your life through me and I will do all I can to live a Holy life, knowing that I can only be
Holy by faith in your cleansing blood. Thank you Lord Jesus, for the new life I now have, by
faith, in you. Amen!"
