    Jesus’ message is LIFE for Believers and Unbelievers ....There is NO death message for human beings who doubt and those who err!

    Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold,
    I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 47 And
    if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

    Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.


    John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    The DOCTRINE OF MEN has polluted the message and meaning of Jesus by inserting condemnation, death, and hellfire and brimstone for the blind, ignorant, those who err, and those human beings who do not and cannot believe.

    Whilst it is true that unbelievers partake of the general benefit to the world of the gospel, such that they are surrounded in many instances by Christians, and forms of Christian government (which are rapidly receeding in places like the USA where paganism has been making huge in roads for many years), the fact is that unless they repent and believe, they will be cast out for their unrepentant sins

    Jhn 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

    Jhn 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

    Jhn 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

    Jhn 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

    Jhn 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    Jhn 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.

    Men have absolutely NO POWER in the Great Judgment, do they?  So what if MEN gather dead branches off natural trees and use them for fuel?  Now learn what "God is wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove means":

    Men are trees of righteousness

    Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

    What GOD AND JESUS do with dead and withered branches as opposed to what MEN do in the natural.  Notice the difference!

    Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    Luke 20:37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

    Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

    Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    Never, Never under estimate the power of LOVE!  God is LOVE!

    Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    God and Christ not only TEACH this, but they PRACTICE THIS IN REALITY .... every time each man takes his last breath.  It may be noteworthy that nearly all humans rise as prodigal sons, Luke 15:15-32.
