13And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
We, as people born in this world, sin against God by failing to comply with his demands on the law to fulfill the 10 commandments. We cannot always do it because we are weak as human beings. If we try to comply with the law now and fulfill parts of it, we are trying to save ourselves. Such an act is called "religion" today.
Religion is a work of trying to save yourself. But we cannot save ourselves
because we are unable to comply with the law in all of his demands on us.
Live by faith alone
Anyone who tries to keep the law and comply with parts of it falls out of grace because it basically claims that one could and would be able to save himself through personal religion. "He" then declares that the Gospel supposedly demands this, which is wrong and thereby nullifies the work of Jesus Christ because the religious person claims "he can save a little bit himself" or he claims "yes, but I am a little bit but also good ".
When it comes to salvation, rely solely on the work of Jesus Christ for you. People do not believe and do not convert because they are subject to personal assumption "yes, but I'm a little bit good too". If you do works and want to show them, you still cannot save yourself, but they are works of faith and here the servant is only doing his service.
Works are not for salvation, but they are a hallmark of salvation.
It gets worse for religious self-savers
10 For those who live from the works of the law are under the curse. Because it is written (Deuteronomy 27:26): "Cursed be everyone who does not stay with everything that is written in the book of the law that he does it!"
General guilt by sinning / before conversion
Because of the guilt that we charge on ourselves over the years, we would have to be punished by God, because God is holy and we are sinners and sin he must punish.
As sinners, we would not come to the Kingdom of Heaven after death and resurrection from the dead, but we would still have to be judged according to the law. We, as believers, are saved from this judgment, because every person who did not believe during their lifetime is judged by God in the judgment before the great White Throne according to the law.
If unsaved sinners would get to heaven after death, heaven would be no other than the world, the world in the past, now and in the future. A Godless place full of sin and sinners.
God's law is a universal law. Jesus Christ is God's word and does not judge, but it judges the word that Jesus spoke. It is a kind of universal automatism, so to speak.
God is holy and cannot "tolerate" sin under His presence in heaven and thus also the "primeval earth", which is why Adam and Eve were banished from paradise after the original sin of disobedience. They were seduced by the snake, the former angel Lucifer.
The former angel Lucifer and a third of all angels that caused turmoil and rebellion in heaven were thrown from heaven to earth and the angel Lucifer became the devil and Satan and the rebellious angels became demons. Today, however, the devil and demons dress as angels of light and seduce people into wrong assumptions and wrong teachings because they hate people.
Testimony to the devil and fallen man.

Idolatry (German: Götzendienst)
Digital numbers, magic, "a binary code of zeros and ones, which is supposed to be money "money becomes God". Digital numbers become God but this God is a digital number, which we shall "believe" should be money, but it is not money, it is fake money and magic. It is scam and sin and from sin there is not to expect to much good.

Fake Bibles: in this case: NIV, New International Version
It was first printed by John Norton & Robert Barker, both the King's Printer, and was the third translation into English approved by the English Church authorities: .commissioned in the reign of King Henry VIII (1535), and the second had been the Bishops' Bible, commissioned in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1568). In Geneva, Switzerland the first generation of Protestant Reformers had produced the Geneva Bible of 1560 from the original Hebrew and Greek scriptures, which was influential in the writing of the Authorized King James Version.
Religions and other heresies such as the big bang theory that "man comes from ape" as evolutionary theory were invented by people in oblivion to the truth, under the spiritual and invisible influence of devils and demons. Thatˋs why God has given us the Bible, which we can use to verify every teaching in the world. They stand as God's two witnesses, Old and New Testament.
God left the earth to man for a while and also gave him the free will to choose for or against the gospel. God has also allowed Satan to seduce people because the Lord also explores the heart of man and wants to know who really and truthfully wants to see him and who rejects him.
We are now in winter 2020, but the calendar has been forged by the Roman Pagan Church. The Jewish calendar is the real deal. According to the Jewish calendar, we are today in the year 5,780. The end of the world is after 6,000 years. Then the 1,000 year kingdom follows with the reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Before the establishment of the 1,000 year Kingdom and the personal rule of the King of Heaven and Earth, the Lord Jesus Christ, he will judge the people living at the time as the sheep and the goats.
However, the world no longer has until the year 6,000, but Christ will come back to earth earlier, he will shorten the days, as it is written in Matthew 24, otherwise no one would be saved because of the intense seduction during this time.
The bad guys (devils and demons) hate man because God created man in his image and because he essentially gave Adam and Eve something that the angel Lucifer didn't like and he rebelled against
God's decision, which God the Lord couldn't accept
(a rebellion against God).
Lucifer wanted to be God himself, which he demonstrated by seducing Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. For him, it was probably the only way to fundamentally destroy man by leading him to sin. Through sin, God should banish man from the Garden of Eden, and that is exactly what happened.
Lucifer led a third of the angels in heaven in rebellion against God. This rebellion against the holiness of the Lord was a sin. Sin was born.
The serpent, which is the devil, then seduced Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve disobeyed because they had not obeyed God's order and had eaten forbidden from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
We recognize such stubbornness and rebellion in humanity today: humans do not want to listen to what God tells us. Children and adults are rebellious and unruly, and the Bible reveals to us that we are fundamentally evil at heart and not good as people think.
So evil has entered human hearts and we suffer from it because we may want to do the good, but ultimately also do the bad and that is pain in the heart and in the conscience. We feel somehow "lost" and look for answers about where that may come from.
Because we are looking for this reason, we are so busy with modern technology, the smartphone. We don't know what we're looking for and why, but we have a clue and that's why we're searching. We are looking for answers.
The loss of life by sinning ultimately leads man to the end of life in death. Before the Fall, Adam and Eve had eternal life and with sin death came over them and humanity because we are all descendants from Adam and Eve.
But God wants to give us eternal life back and he wants to put us in his Kingdom of Heaven and therefore God gives us eternal life by believing in Jesus Christ and already gives us many great promises for life in the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Gospel is therefore the Lord's message of salvation, and it is not without reason that the Lord gave the Gospel in other Languages the name EVAngelium (German) or EVAngile (french). It is a special proof of love for God's love for the woman who suffer a lot, if only because when they are pregnant and give birth to children in pain.
Philosophers have thought and come to the conclusion "life is suffering." God the Lord knows that; that we are all under the bondage of sin and suffering and death. Because of this, Jesus reveals to us to love him and God with all our hearts, in spite of and with all of that happening throughout life, and he reveals to us to love our neighbor and enemy, because we as humans should grow over the years and that includes to forgive, so that the Heavenly Father will forgive us and the enemies should also let go of evil, because doing evil is not good and doing evil is not strength, but weakness.
If all sinners would go to heaven after death, heaven would be like earth. Think about that. Sinners lead a sinful life, that is why they cannot see God, moreover seeking lawlessnes, called freedom.
Doing evil stubbornly and petrifies the heart of man that he no longer has love. He may have another love, a love of lawlessness, but God's love involves observing the 10 commandments (inside). Love of God always has to do with the 10 commandments, the 10 commandments were the holy of holies to the Lord in the Old Testament.
God was on earth at the time of the Old Testament, he was on earth at the time of the New Testament. The Bible bears witness to the presence of God on earth. Theories of evolution and the Big Bang can thus be referred to the realm of fairy tales and fables.
The door to belief opens when man is ready to really and honestly forgive others from the heart, then God will forgive the individual and so the heart opens for belief, man begins to have real love again, because it frees him from burdens, resentments and bitterness in the heart.
Christ has now invalidated God's order to punish man by giving himself and his life and blood, on the cross of Calvary, to pay off this promissory note. Jesus Christ fulfilled the law, he was without any sin and yet he was punished like a sinner by sinful people and they brought him to the cross.
Today, every believer who confesses sin and thereby repents is free from the demands of the law to punish sins and subsequently sinners.
In the Old Testament, animals had to be sacrificed to erase such sins.
Christ should not have died because he had no sin. He did this out of love for people. God sent his only begotten son to earth and sacrificed his son for sinners and out of love, which no man would do. Perhaps a man would give his life for a just man, but for a sinner, man would not do something like this and if he did it would still be religion.
This proves that mankind cannot save itself, even if they would try anything to do it, and that makes all people equal before God. God cannot accept a sacrifice from a sinner because sin makes man impure.
That is why no religion leads to God because religions were invented by people who had a vague idea or who deliberately falsified the truth of the Bible in order to gain personal advantages. Or, they just lived by hearing sayings, like most of humanity today. Otherwise, people would not believe in religions as they do today, but test religion and personal religion with a reliable Bible.
The forgiveness of sins by the Lord Jesus for us believers means that we have access to the Heavenly Father again, Jesus is thus mediator for all believers and so what he said is fulfilled
6 "I am the way, the truth and the life, nobody comes to the Father but through me."
5 Thomas said to him, Lord, we do not know where you are going; and how can we know the way? 6Jesus said to him, I am the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you knew me, you also knew my father. And from now on you know him and have seen him. ...
Free from the fear and bondage of death
10 In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents.”
12 Once again, Jesus spoke to the people and said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
24 Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment. Indeed, he has crossed over from death to life.

The Triumph of Faith
1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we havea peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
19 For through the law I died to the law so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God. For if righteousness comes through the law, Christ died for nothing.”
3 Are you so foolish? After starting in the Spirit, are you now finishing in the flesh? 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing, if it really was for nothing?
