Tebow Controversy Makes Way for the Gospel - US - CBN News - Christian News 24-7 -

As a committed Christian and follower of Messiah Y'shua (Jesus), who affirmed the Jewish Tanakh, what we Gentiles know as the Old Testament (John 17:17), I applaude Dr. Jeffress for standing upon Biblical teacihng taht is indeed foundational to the forming and evolution of America.  In the video, at aroiund the 8 min 20 second mark, Dr. Jeffress points out that you can't know or understand the good news without understanding the bad news.

Scripture unashamedly declares:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

That pretty much includes everyone on earth!  We've all coveted, reviled. lusted in our hearts (which Y'shua said was as committing adultery).  The Bible tells us that all humanity is the same.  And we have the example of the Jews' rebellion after Yahweh gave them the Torah and Tanakh.  They rebelled against God's laws, just as we do.  They were punished for their sin.  But some of them repented.  Some acting in faith in the promised, coming Messiah, turned from their sin and sought forgiveness from the Almighty Maker to whom we all have to give account (Rom. 14:12).  And those who confessed their sins to the Almighty looking in faith to the one who would shed His blood to pay for the sins of the people (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:10; John 10:15-18). 

And that is what the Bible calls GOOD NEWS!  That we can be FREELY FORGIVEN because God so loved the world, that He sent His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16-18).  But those who have truly trusted Christ are born again (John 3:3), which means they lose their love of the world, or its approval (1 John 2:15-17).  They become, through faith, a new creation, NOT OF THIS WORLD! (Eph. 2:8-9, 2 Cor 5:17).  They drink freely of the water of Life, and are welcomed into their Father's family, and His eternal kingdom.  This world is quickly passing away, and due to the Bible prophecies that have been fulfilled and are in the process of being fulfilled, I believe we will see the return of Yeshua to establish His kingdom in the next seven to eight years.  That would put us at about 2020 A.D.
