Why does mankind need a savior? Why do people need to be saved? What does being saved mean? I thought all good people will go to heaven so why do good people need to be saved?

Now, some Christians will tell you that all people have inherited the original sin of Adam and Eve and that is why all people, both good and bad, must be saved in order to receive eternal life and not perish in the lake of fire on the final Day of Judgment.

But that is not what the Bible itself teaches. Please read the study called “THE FALSE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN!”. The Bible teaches us that in the fullness of time when God provided for us a savior that God concluded all of mankind to be fallen short of his glory. Now it is also true that we have all sinned, at some point in time in our life no matter how small that sin may have been. The truth of the matter is we have excused those small sins from even being sins because everyone commits those small sins like telling little white lies or cheating. But the fact remains that God himself has chosen to CONCLUDE ALL humans to be under sin and he did so for a REASON. 

Even we as human beings consider it to be JUSTICE for a person who has broken the law to PAY for his or her crime. And if you are honest with yourself and with God then you know that you yourself and everyone else has done something that they know they should have NOT done. So we have all sinned at one time or another in our life. But that is not the SOLE reason why mankind needs a savior. The sole reason why we need a savior is that our creator chose to PARDON any and every wrong that we have every done BY each person BELIEVING is so great a salvation. So God first provided HIS WAY to save mankind. And then God CONCLUDED all of mankind to be under or guilty of sin whether they think they deserve to be judged of doing wrong or not.

Please read Galatians 3:22,23.

But the scripture has CONCLUDED all under sin, THAT (Or so that or in order that) the promise BY faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that BELIEVE

23.  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterward be revealed.”

So then, it does not matter if you think that you have not done anything wrong or not. What matters is that the creator of mankind has CONCLUDED all of mankind as being GUILTY of not measuring upon to HIS standards. And his punishment for falling below his standard of righteousness is DEATH.

Now the reason that God himself simply CONCLUDED everyone to be under sin, INCLUDING his chosen people Israel was so that HE himself could show his love and mercy to provide us a way to escape the penalty of sin which is eternal death, being cast into the lake of fire on the Day of Judgment.

This was God’s plan all along before God ever created mankind. It is God’s good pleasure to provide for us HIS way to be saved. For you see, he knew that his enemy Satan would tempt his new creation of mankind to sin. I will explain what I mean about God’s enemy a little further on in this study in God’s word. Right at the moment, I want you to see from the Scriptures that God had a PLAN of salvation to say those of mankind who BELIEVE and trust in his plan to save them from destruction in the lake of fire on the Day of Judgment.

Please read Ephesians 1:1-9.

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

2.  Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 

3.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN Christ: 

4.  According, as he (Almighty God our creator) has chosen us IN him (Speaking of being saved IN his Son Jesus the Christ, the anointed of God) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 

5.  Having predestined us unto the adoption of children BY Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, (God’s plan to save us was his WILL before he ever created us.)

6. To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us ACCEPTED IN the beloved. (Meaning that Almighty God our creator has made us accepted in his eyes by our FAITH IN his beloved Son Jesus the Christ.)

7.  IN whom (Or IN Jesus the Son of Almighty God) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; (So then, through our faith IN the shed blood of Jesus Christ we have FORGIVENESS of all our past sins to now be ACCEPTED as being pure and holy before Almighty God our creator.)

8.  Wherein he has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 

9.  Having made known unto us the mystery of his WILL, according to his good pleasure which he has purposed in himself:” 

So then, this whole plan of salvation was our creator's idea and it was his good pleasure to do this for us BEFORE Almighty God ever created mankind. There is only ONE true Almighty God who created us all and he has only ONE plan of salvation which is that we MUST be saved by FAITH in his SON Jesus Christ.

This may sound like a NARROW way to be saved to some people in the world but that is what God himself decided as being the ONLY WAY for all men to be saved.

Please read Acts 4:9-12.

Be it known unto you ALL, AND to all the people of Israel, that BY the NAME of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you whole. 

11.  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 

12.  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NONE other name under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved.” 

Hebrews 2:3.

“How shall we escape (Eternally perishing by destruction in the lake of fire on the final Day of Judgment), if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;”

God is offering everyone a SIMPLE EASY WAY to be saved from eternal destruction in the lake of fire. So if you do not already believe in Jesus the Son of the living God as your Lord and savior then please read the next Bible study called “HOW CAN I BE SAVED?”. It is Almighty God our creator's WAY and it is the ONLY WAY to be saved.

Now, if you are already saved then you may have wondered WHY did Almighty God our creator chose this particular WAY to save mankind? Why did God not simply forgive mankind? Why the NEED for God to provide a SAVIOR

What the world has failed to see and what even some Christians have failed to see is that God has an enemy. Most Christians know that God’s enemy is Satan. But not all Christians know that Satan is one and the self-same being who is called Lucifer in the Bible. And even fewer Christians realize that Lucifer was once a good angel whom God set to be over the old earth before the great WAR between Lucifer and God. And when God pushed Lucifer and his army of angels out of the third heaven and he was about to destroy him, Lucifer wrongly accused or BLAMED God as being the CAUSE of why he rebelled against God. You can read all the Scriptures that support what I am saying about this war in heaven in the studies “UNDERSTANDING WHY?”, “THE WAR IN HEAVEN--REVELATION 12!” and “WHO IS LUCIFER---IS LUCIFER SATAN?” But for now, please know and understand that God is in the process of REPLACING Lucifer with his FIRSTBORN Son, Jesus Christ, as the attendant of the earth. Jesus will rule and reign over the earth in the world to come for Yahweh his God and Father for 1000 years. Some Christians have failed to see that Satan and the fallen angels are on TRIAL to prove that God is JUST to destroy them in the lake of final on the final Day of Judgment. And even fewer Christians have come to realize God needed to create a new species of beings a little lower or inferior to the angel which he called man or the humans. Most Christians have heard or read in the Bible that Jesus was made a little lower than the angels but not all Christians understand WHY Jesus and the rest of mankind were made a little lower than the angels. Most Christians have failed to see that for our reward of OVERCOMING Satan God has promised us to give us eternal life in the world to come or more precisely the WORLDS to come.

Again, if you are not SURE with absolute certainty that your ARE saved right now, then I implore you to read the study “HOW CAN I BE SAVED?”

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the whole word of Almighty God.

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ.
