Jesus Christ is the only way
of guaranteed, protection, from our troubles -- and especially from God's judgment day.
See many pages on this subject at my other website CreationOutreach.com.
At the end of this section I include all of John 3 -- a major talk discussion between Jesus and a local
ruler, on Salvation.
first 2 Samuel 12.
is much of 2 Samuel 12 (Old Testament historical book):
13And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto
David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
14Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of
the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.
15And Nathan departed unto his house. And
the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.
16David therefore besought God for the child;
and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth.
17And the elders of his house arose, and went to him, to
raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them.
18And it came to pass on the seventh day,
that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the
child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell
him that the child is dead?
19But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore
David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead.
20Then David arose from the earth, and washed,
and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the LORD, and worshipped: then he came to his own
house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat.
21Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this
that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise
and eat bread.
he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that
the child may live?
now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
24And David comforted Bathsheba
his wife, and went in unto her, and lay with her: and she bare a son, and he called his name Solomon: and the LORD loved him.
he sent by the hand of Nathan the prophet; and he called his name Jedidiah, because of the LORD.
The New Testament (Gospel) book of John chapter 3:
1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler
of the Jews:
same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these
miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the
second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit
not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst
not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How
can these things be?
answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak
that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12If I have told you earthly things, and ye
believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came
down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of
man be lifted up:
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17For God sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18He 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.
19And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20For every one that doeth
evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,
that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
22After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the
land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water
there: and they came, and were baptized.
24For John was not yet cast into prison.
25Then there arose a question between some
of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond
Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
27John answered and said, A man can receive
nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am
sent before him.
that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly
because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30He must increase, but I must decrease.
31He that cometh from above
is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
32And what he hath seen and
heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
34For he whom God hath sent
speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all
things into his hand.
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.
