11-18-2016 Jesus Saves Believers Only

“And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him–the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (John 12:47-48 NKJV).  Jesus is simply stating that while He lived on earth, He did not make a final judgment against anyone, but He will one day!  The warnings against, and descriptions of, sin are to help us make the right choice. Before He left this earth and went back into Heaven, Jesus also said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:15-16NKJV).
