"I KNOW THAT I KNOW"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

1 JOHN 5:1-13

1Jo 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God
 
      MANY PEOPLE GO THROUGH LIFE THINKING, HOPING, AND SOME HOW BELIEVING THAT THEY ARE SAVED. THIS IS NOT A THINK-SO, HOPE-SO, OR BELIEVE-SO SALVATION. YOU MUST KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD, HEAVEN WILL BE YOUR HOME. WE HAVE TOO MUCH TO LOSE TO HOPE FOR IT. GOD'S WORD SAYS THAT I CAN KNOW!!! I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. AIN'T THAT AWESOME!!!
 
    DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW, OR DO YOU JUST HOPE? ARE YOU SURE, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT? I MEAN THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE YOU CAN BE WRONG? I AM IN NO WAY TRYING TO GET YOU TO DOUBT YOUR SALVATION, BUT I DO WANT YOU TO KNOW, THAT WHAT YOU HAVE IS REAL AND GENUINE. CAN YOU REMEMBER THE DAY YOU WERE SAVED? I'M NOT TALKING OF A DATE, BUT A TIME PERIOD IN YOUR LIFE WHEN JESUS CAME INTO YOUR HEART, AND BEGAN A NEW LIFE IN YOU. IT'S GREAT TO RECALL THE DATE, THE TIME, THE PLACE, AND THE SERVICE, BUT DO YOU RECALL THE TRANSFORMATION, THE BIRTH OF NEW LIFE, JESUS COMING INTO YOUR LIFE? MANY REMEMBER A TIME WHEN THEY WENT UP TO THE FRONT AND KNELT, OR RAISED THEIR HAND, BUT FEW REMEMBER THE CHANGE, THE NEW BIRTH. WITHOUT THIS PART, WITHOUT THE BLOOD OF CHRIST, YOU ARE LOST, AND WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE. HOW SAD IT IS, TO KNOW THAT JESUS CAME AND DIED THAT WE MIGHT LIVE, SHED HIS BLOOD, ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY, WAS BURIED, AND AROSE THE THIRD DAY. THEN ASCENDED UP TO THE FATHER, THERE MAKING INTERSESSION FOR YOU AND I, AND BECAUSE OF DECEPTION, IT WAS OF NO USE TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU REJECTED HIS CALL. YOU WERE SATISFIED WITH A THINK-SO, HOPE-SO, I'M PRETTY SURE I'LL MAKE IT, ATTITUDE. EPHESIANS 2:8 FOR BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELF: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: MATTHEW 2:9 NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHALL BOAST. NONE OF US ARE GOOD ENOUGH, NOR DO WE WORK ENOUGH, TO GET SALVATION. JESUS IS THE ANSWER. DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW?
