Man is Spiritual Being
Man not only has flesh, but also Spirit. Thus, Thinking that death
means the end of existence is wrong.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 "and the dust returns to
the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." Mattew 4:4
"... 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the
mouth of God..." Luke 8:55 "Her spirit returned(she had died), and at once she
Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat." There is not only
visible existence, but also evil spiritual beings who are invisible, threatening
and harassing you. Hebrew 2:14-15 "....so that by his death he might destroy him
who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their
lives were held in slavery by their fear of death." Mattew 12:22-21 "Then they
brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him,
so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said..."
Luke 9:42-43 "..., the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus
rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father. And
they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at
all that Jesus did,"
Man is Sinner
The biblical criteria of why we are a sinner is not the same as the laws of
this World. One criteria is the Law of God. The Law of God does not change from
one generation to another, place to another, individual to another. 'You are a
sinner' means you broke the law of God. Think simply about the Ten Commandments.
Exodus 20:3-17 "You shall have no other gods before me... shall not murder,shall
not commit adultery,..." No one can stand before God as righteous. Romans 3:10
"As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;" As the offender
who broke one of the laws of this world has to be punished according to it's
law, a sinner who broke the law of God also has to pay the cost.
This cost contains curse, agony, anxiety, failure, depression, and death. Death
is greatest among them, there are two types of death. The death of your flesh
refers to your body returning to the land and the second death refers to your
entering everlasting suffering through unquenchable fire. Romans 6:23 "For the
wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our
Lord" Mattew 25:41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you
who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."
You can take nothing with you when you die.
Jesus Christ Undertakes Our Sins
There is a way to escape from the curse that
came upon humans as a result of sin and a way to overcome the oppression and
aggression were of devil and demons. God opened the way to escape from the curse
with the sacrifice of animals in old testaments. As the priest laid one hand on
the head of the sheep and asked God for forgiveness, the sins were transferred
to the sheep. As the death of the sheep was a parable about Jesus who would
later pay for man's sin with His own blood freeing him from the consequences of
sin. Leviticus 17:11 "... For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have
given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood
that makes atonement for one's life." But animals do not have souls, so they
cannot make atonement for the sin of human souls.
Man required the savior who
can even takes the sin of the soul. God sent Jesus. "For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life." Jesus is the one who came to die for your sin. John 1:29
"The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world!" Jesus took up the curse, poverty and
diseases, oppression of devil and demon caused by our sins. Isaiah 53:4-6
"Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows,...But he was pierced
for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that
brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. and the LORD has
laid on him the iniquity of us all."

witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the
Mark 16:17-18 "And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my
name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick
up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt
them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get
well." 2 Corinthians 1:22 "set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit
in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come." Acts 2:4 "All of them
were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the
Spirit enabled them." Acts 10:45-46 "The circumcised believers who had come with
Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even
on the Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God."

indwell your soul, then you will certainly receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
according to His promise. Luke 11:10-13 "...For everyone who asks receives; he
who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened...how much more
will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" Acts
2:38-39 "...Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the
name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all
who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call."
3) Peace and pleasure
will come upon someone who is saved and he/she will meet God the Creator, and
may discover the significance of his or her life. John 14:27 "Peace I leave with
you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let
your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
