These are your Divine Rights:
- You have the right to confess you are a sinner and have broken God’s law – Romans 3:23. Do You Understand?
- You have the right to know, if you do not receive salvation, every word you have spoken will be used against you on JUDGEMENT DAY- Matthew 12:36-37. Do You Understand?
- You have the right to consult your Holy Bible to insure you are being told the truth – Acts 17:11. Do You Understand?
- If you do not have a Bible, one will be provided free of charge. Do You Understand?
- You have the right as a sinner, to receive Jesus Christ as your attorney to defend you before the Divine Court of Law – 1 John 2:1. This will ensure that you will have eternal life – John 10:28. Do You Understand?
- You have the right at any time to stop this preaching to repent of your sins and to confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Attorney – Romans 10:9-10. If you do not confess Christ, you will be convicted of sin before the Divine Court of Law and face an eternal sentence in Hell – Revelation 20:12-15. Do You Understand?
Most people have no idea that God deals with mankind through a Divine legal system, but the bible reveals there is such a system. God’s legal system ends in a trial which is called Judgment Day.
For a trial to be held there has to be a breaking of the law or penal code. In God’s system the penal code is the Ten Commandments, and just as there are penalties for breaking the human law, so there is a penalty for breaking God’s laws. Prison is the place where human law breakers serve their sentence.
In the Divine system, the penalty for breaking the law is eternal separation from God in a “prison” called hell –“Depart from me you cursed, into everlasting fire…” Matthew 25:41.
A person in our society who faces serious criminal charges is called a felon. Anyone charged with a felony would want to be represented before a court of law with the very best attorney they could obtain. A person who breaks God’s law is called a sinner:
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” 1 John 3:4.
As in human law, a sinner needs the best attorney possible to be represented before the Divine court. Remember, conviction of sin before the Divine court means eternal punishment – “For the wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23. The stakes before the Divine court are extremely high.
God knew that no one could represent himself before the Divine court because all have sinned (committed felonies) and come short of the glory of God. Everyone has broken God’s law and deserves punishment. God loves you and is not willing that you should be separated from Him in hell. Because of God’s love for you, He sent Jesus Christ to be your personal Advocate, Defense attorney:
“If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” 1 John 2:1.
Jesus Christ is not only willing to defend you before the Divine court of law, but He loves you so much that on the cross He died and took the full penalty for all your sins.
Although Jesus Christ wants to be your Advocate, He is far different than any human attorney. The bible says that He is also the Judge:
“…but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” John 5:22.
On the cross, He took all your sins:
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body” 1 Peter2:24.
He shed His blood for you:
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins” Ephesians 1:7.
Jesus Christ died in your place:
“…that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man” Hebrews 2:9.
Because of Jesus, you can be reconciled with God:
“God was in Christ, reconciling the -world unto himself…”‘ 2 Corinthians 5:19.
In modern terms, Jesus Christ took the “rap” for your sin. Christ is the judge who loved you so much that He stepped down as judge to defend you. He is the Advocate who loves you so much that He offered Himself in your place. He became a felon for you:
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” 2 Corinthians 5:21.
Before God’s court of law, Christ has done everything for you. Now your part is to repent of sin and by an act of faith completely trust Jesus Christ as your Advocate. God will never violate your will and force you to receive Christ; however, nothing but faith in Christ as your Lord and Advocate will pardon you from the punishment of the Divine law. Do you understand?
Right now you can exercise your Divine rights and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Advocate. If you realize you sinned and broken God’s law and you need Jesus Christ as your Advocate, now is the time to come to God in prayer. God will accept everyone who calls upon Jesus Christ
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13
With a simple prayer from your heart to God, you can be reconciled with God. A prayer such as this: God I confess that I have broken your law and sinned against you. I realize Jesus Christ shed His blood and died for my sins. I now repent of my sin and completely trust Jesus Christ as my Lord and Advocate. Because of Jesus, I’m reconciled to you and no longer face separation from you in hell. Thank you for loving me and sending Jesus as my Lord and Advocate.
