One of the main reasons you should believe in the Bible is because the Bible is GOD’S REVELATION TO MANKIND! The Bible REVEALS the following vital truths that you need to know:

1) God is THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS, including you! Genesis 1:1 & 26 reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” (NKJV). We learn in John 1:1 & 3 and Colossians 1:16 that God the Son is God the Creator: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made…For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth…all things were created through Him and for Him.”

2) Man was CREATED TO GLORIFY GOD. We learn this in Isaiah 43:7, “Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have CREATED FOR MY GLORY; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

3) Man DISOBEYED GOD AND BECAME A SINNER. Let’s read Genesis 2:15-17 and 3:6, “Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden…and…commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die…So when the woman…took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.” Now let’s read Romans 5:12 & 19, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…By one man’s disobedience many were made sinners.”

4) Man is SENTENCED TO DEATH AND JUDGMENT. Romans 3:23 states, “For the wages of sin is DEATH.” Hebrews 9:27 goes on to say, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the JUDGMENT.”

5) God’s Son BECAME A MAN TO TAKE THE SINNER’S PLACE IN DEATH & JUDGMENT. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth…But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death…that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone” (John 1:14; Hebrews 2:9).

6) The SINNER WHO BELIEVES ON HIM IS SAVED AND HAS ETERNAL LIFE. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life…He who believes in Him is not condemned…He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (John 3:16, 18 and 5:24).

7) The SINNER WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IS CONDEMNED. “…he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God…for if you do not believe that I am he, you will die in your sins” (John 3:18 and 8:24).

8) The BELIEVER HAS ABUNDANT LIFE NOW AND A GLORIOUS FUTURE IN HEAVEN. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly…In my Father’s house are many mansions…I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 10:10 and 14:2-3).

9) The UNBELIEVER WILL BE CAST INTO HELL FOREVER. “He who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him…And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire…But the…unbeliever…shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (John 3:36; Revelation 20:15; 21:8).  (383.3)  (DO)
