The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the LORD” (John 1:23)

An Abbreviated Gospel


Jesus, the Anointed King (Greek word: christos; Hebrew: mashiach), foretold throughout the ages (Genesis 49:10, Numbers 24:17-19, Psalm 2, Jeremiah 23:5-6, Daniel 2:24-45, Micah 5:2, Zechariah 9:9, Luke 1:30-33, Matthew 27:11, Mark 15:2, Luke 23:3, John 1:49),

the only begotten Son of God (Psalm 2:7, John 3:16, Hebrews 5:5),

chose to die for us, offering no defense (Isaiah 53:7, Matthew 27:12, John 10:17-18, Hebrews 12:2).

Three days later God raised Him from the dead (Acts 2:24, Acts 3:15, Acts 13:30, 1 Corinthians 6:14, Gal 1:1, 1 Peter 1:21).

He appeared in the flesh to over 500 witnesses including the apostles who wrote the New Testament (1 Corinthians 15:3-7, Luke 24:36-43, John 20:19-31).

King Jesus is now seated at the right hand of the Father (Acts 2:33, Hebrews 1:3, 1 Peter 3:22).

He will return to Earth one Day with a host of angels and saints to judge the living and the dead according to their works (Matthew 25:31-46, Acts 10:42, Acts 17:31, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, Jude 1:14-15, Rev 20:4)

appointing some to eternal life and others into everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46, Revelation 21:7-8).

The Lord Jesus offers salvation / deliverance / release (Greek: soteria, aphesis) (Luke 1:77, Acts 4:12, Acts 13:38,47, Romans 1:16, Ephesians 1:7, Titus 2:11).

Therefore, in proportion to the unmerited favor & power of God that lies within your view (Jeremiah 31:3, Luke 11:34, John 6:44, Romans 1:16, Romans 2:4, 2 Corinthians 7:10, 2 Timothy 2:25)

repent (change your mind / turn your will to God) (Matt 3:2, Mark 1:15, Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38, Acts 17:30, Acts 26:20, Rev 2:5,16),

believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God’s Anointed One (Matt 16:16, John 11:27, John 17:3, John 20:31, Acts 8:12, Acts 10:36,43),

and be instantly conveyed from the kingdom of this world into the kingdom of God moving from death to life (John 1:12-13, John 5:24, John 10:10, Acts 26:18, Rom 8:1, Col 1:13, 2 Tim 1:10, 1 John 3:14)

while receiving the Holy Spirit to dwell inside you (John 7:39, Acts 2:38, Acts 10:44, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Ephesians 1:13)!

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to all people (Luke 2:14)!
