What is the Will of God for the Salvation of Soul?

People who believe in God want to receive salvation and go to heaven. The bible says that the blessings God stored in heaven for His chosen ones are written, “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him—“.

Looking forward to the unimaginable place, we are walking this life of desert. In this spiritual journey, there is one thing that many people fail to ask. Am I qualified to enter the heaven? Will God allow me to be his chosen ones? Contrarily, people tend to think I will surely enter heaven since I have faith in Jesus Christ. Is this true? Is the faith in Jesus the only criterion to enter the heaven? How can we be sure about this?

If we do not ask these questions and find answers for these questions, we might have to face a rude awakening in front of the heaven’s gate by being told by God, “I don’t know you.” If this is the case, there would be no more time or chance for us to repent. Our fate has already been decided and it is irrevocable.

Therefore, before this moment comes, we have to seriously ask if my conviction for salvation and heaven is based on the undeniable truth or not. In finding answer to these questions, what is most important is not our thoughts or opinions. It is God who has all the authorities and power to make such decision. Therefore, we have to ask God if we are qualified enough to enter the heaven.

Let us find through the bible what is God’s standard which he use to make the decision for salvation. Who can enter heaven in God’s eyes? Jesus says that faith alone is not enough to enter heaven.

Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Here we can see the criterion that God uses for salvation? It is not just faith in God, but God asks action combined to the faith. Jesus clearly says that we have to “do the will of God” to enter the heaven. For this reason, James too emphasize that the faith alone is not sufficient. Rather we have to show our faith through our action suitable for the faith.

James 2:14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. 20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?

Here we can know our faith can be made complete through our action and then we can enter the heaven. Then what are the will of God that we have to do to show our faith? Those are the teachings of God. God gave us a lot of teachings for our blessings and those commands of God are the will of God for us so that we can be saved. If we name a couple of things, one of them is the Passover.

To give us the forgiveness of sins and eternal life, Jesus taught us to keep the Passover. (Matthew 26:17-28, John 6:53) And also Jesus and disciples gave us lessons through their deeds too. According to the bible Jesus and Apostles kept the Sabbath as day of worship. (Luke 4:16, Acts 17:2) Also, God gave us a lot of commands that we have to follow as people of God. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) All these are the will of God for our salvation.

Jesus says that a tree can be known through the fruits it bears. Likewise, our faith in God can be weighed through the deed we do. If we keep the law and commands of God, we will be the people who can inherit the kingdom of heaven. On the contrary, if we practice lawlessness by observing the teachings and traditions of man, we would be considered as evildoers who cannot enter the heaven. Now let us prove our faith in God through our action by doing the will of God. Then God will accept us in heaven with His arms open for us.

    Amen. Living a life on the earth only thinking of physical things is like chasing the wind. We need to find the secret hidden in our spiritual life by studying the Bible given by Elohim God.

    God gives us the Bible and He wrote the way of the salvation of our soul in It. We should obey the teachings of God to save us and keep all the truth that is Sabbath, Passover, and God's feasts. Thanks to the grace of Elohim God.

    If you have faith in God without following the teaching of God, can you be saved? Jesus said " ..Only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." Therefore, we must keep the God's appointed Feasts in the Bible if we have faith in God.


  • 2020-12-31 11:16

    When thinking of the will of God, we can fully understand the reason why God came down in the flesh to establish all the truth of the new covenant for our salvation. When keeping all truth of the new covenant, we can be saved through them.

    No matter how diligently we serve God with the rules of men, we neither receive salvation nor promise to enter the kingdom of heaven. The commends of God have the promise of kingdom of heaven and blessings. let us have right faith to keep the commands of God and be saved.

    If the kingdom of heaven is to be allowed to all people, then, there'll be no problem at all.
    Unfortunately, only a few will be glorified with eternal salvation in the end.
    It's because many people just want to be saved, not being faithful to God's commands.
    As the Bible says, it's so natural for God's people to keep in step with God's teachings with all their hearts.
    God has taught us what to do, when to do, how to do for eternal salvation.
    Faith without any deed is dead.

    Many ppl say that we can be saved only through our faith in Jesus, not through our deeds, then how can we show our faith without deeds? Jesus said " If you love me, you will obey what I command.!" What is it that Jesus commanded us to do? It is to keep the feasts of the New Covenant. Only those who keep the New Covenant are qualified to enter Heaven.

    It is important for us to catch the God's will that is leading us to the kingdom of heaven and not to fall away from the belief. Definitely we have to search the Bible to notice God's will in order not to make Him worry about me. By keeping the laws and commands of God Elohim; Christ Ahnsahnghong and Jerusalem God the Mother, we can please Them and enter the kingdom of heaven after we fulfill Their will.

    Our Father and Mother came down this earth and opened the way of salvation. What our God prepared for us is unimaginable. I cannot wait to go there and be with our Heavenly Family. Let us forcefully follow the paths that our Father and Mother walked!

    True, The Passover of the New Covenant is so precious truth for our salvation of our souls.
    Let's run toward God keeping the Passover of the New Covenant.


  • 2021-01-03 04:09

    As Jesus has shown a example for us, those who follow the will of God can enter the kingdom of God. this is natural thing. so we should follow the teachings of Jesus recorded in the Bible.

    Two reasons to keep God's commandments:
    1.To go to Heaven through salvation
    Matthew7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
    It is said that we do not go to heaven just because we believe in God, but that those who do God's will enter into heaven.
    Since the Sabbath and Passover are the will of God, the Church of God keeps his commandments.
    2. Because we love God
    John 14:15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command."
    Those who love God must express love. It was said that the way to express love is to keep his commandments.


  • 2021-01-07 13:19

    Yes, you are right. As you mentioned, God said only those who follow God's word.
    so, we have to distinguish God's will and Men's thought to go to heaven.
