1-COMMENTARY

    The love that God (the Creator of all things) has for mankind seems beyond human perception. God created man and placed him in a perfect environment. But man rebelled against God and sinned. He would not obey God. He would not let God reign over him. Thus sin has reigned from the time that Adam sinned. All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
  
The question then arises, YE SERPENTS, YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?-Mt 23:33. For THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH-Ro 6:23.

2-GODíS LOVE PROVIDED A WAY OF ESCAPE

    There is a way of escaping hell or eternal death. As it is written, 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 3:16.
  
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 3:36. (The word "believe," as used here, means a total uncompromising commitment of love and obedience.)
  
Jesus Christ died a horrible death so that you can have forgiveness of all your sins, no matter how bad they are. A person never needs to go to hell, if they receive, by faith, the forgiveness and love that God offers through Jesus Christ, His Son. This is an offer God gives you.
  
In order for our sin debt to be paid, Jesus Christ (Godís only begotten Son) had to come to this earth in human form. He was made under the Law. He became flesh and dwelt among us. He was not under the curse of sin from Adam as his Father was God in heaven. He was born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life. He taught for about 3 Ĺ years. He raised the dead, healed the sick, and taught things that had been hidden from the beginning. He did only good. Yet He was ridiculed and tempted in all ways as we are. Then when His time was come He was arrested, beaten, condemned, and hung on the cross. His appearance was so disfigured that the Scriptures describe it as worse than any man. His beard was ripped off his face. He had a crown of thorns embedded on his head. One can only imagine how His face must have swelled and been a bloody mess. It is a miracle that He could even speak. The pain must have been excruciating.
  
Who could depict such a thing! God, in His love, came to this earth in human form to die at the hands of the very people He created, so that those who would trust in Him and Him alone might have eternal life and unspeakable joy for eternity.
  
Man has a rebellious nature, especially against the things of God. No person has to teach a child to lie. Rather a child has to be taught to do right. Man is very self-centered. He is selfish. Each person usually looks at himself as the center of the universe. People traditionally do what is right in their own eyes, not in the eyes of a Holy God.
  
Thus, man needed a Savior. Man needed someone to pay his sin debt. That Savior was God Himself. He paid that sin debt. However those that reject His love and sacrifice have no forgiveness of their sins. They are doomed to perish for eternity for rejecting the love of God. They will die in their sin.
  
He calls us out of sin and darkness so we can understand the Scriptures. He saves us.
  
But that is not all. Once we receive Jesus Christ as our only hope of salvation, we need to hear and (if we can read) we need to study Godís Word. We need to learn about God and what He expects of us. God gives us His Spirit. But, in all cases, when we believe God is telling us to do this or that or go here or there, we need to search the Scriptures to see if it is correct.
  
Once we begin to follow Jesus by giving Him our lives, we sometimes begin to go astray. He then, in His love, corrects us with chastisements. Rev 3:19-AS MANY AS I LOVE, I REBUKE AND CHASTEN: BE ZEALOUS THEREFORE, AND REPENT. In other words, we may get spanked in some way. This can come in many ways, such as finances, sickness, problems, or something unexpected. We need to continually examine ourselves to see if we are doing the will of God according to His Word.
  
As we walk with God and do those things which are pleasing in His sight we can expect many problems to occur. We can expect unexpected sufferings. We can expect to be persecuted by loved ones, employers, and strangers. We can expect to be unjustly accused of unbelievable things. We can expect to be tempted in ways we might never think of. Through all of this our faith will be tested to see if it is genuine. God has already proven His love for us. Now our love for God will be tested. The Scriptures tell us that, by the fear of God, men depart from evil. Will we continue to follow God no matter what, or will we go back to following Satan? God, in His love, will be with us no matter what we go through.
  
God has ordained from even before the foundation of the earth some way in which to serve Him. He has some form of work for all of His people to do. But before our service, should come study, study, and more study. We need to dwell in Godís Word and learn, so that we do not sin against Him. We need to be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. Then, finally, when the end has come for each of us, we will forever be with Jesus. Not only will we escape eternal death (the lake of fire), but we have eternal life. And even more than this ónote the words: 1 Cor 2:9-BUT AS IT IS WRITTEN, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, THE THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM.
  
Who can understand the love of God? Who can understand that God sent Jesus to pay the sin debt of a sinful, stubborn and rebellious people. It is written: 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. The very essence of God is love.
  
God demonstrates His overwhelming love for us in that Jesus died for usóHe took on Himself our deserved punishmentóso that we might have life and have it abundantly. There is also much in the Bible about us loving God, loving our brothers in Christ, and even loving our enemies.
