Believer (pisteuo pist-yoo’-o) =have faith.
“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”
We are, if we believe in Jesus of Nazareth:
1. Justified by the righteousness of Christ
2. We are pardoned through his blood (As if you prepared the sacrificial offering for offences)
3. Atonement has been made by his sacrifice.
4. Saved by grace. God’s tolerance to any backsliding is up to him and your genuine sorrowfulness.
Disciple(mathetes math-ay-tes’)= A teacher, where Jesus and the Gosplel become a profession.
“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”
Yes it’s a big commitment. That’s why many Churches take care of the housing and even a stipend for a car for their pastors. God does give you time to transition into this position. He knows your situation. Don’t let the enemies efforts stop you. Also don’t think you have to go through a denominations university to be a disciple. If your called you know it and just do. I live in a state where ministers have to be “licensed” so in order to go to strangers that are sick, in prison, or even directly provide food with out “institution” in the middle is very difficult. Just do what you can.
Apostle(Apostolos)= A delegate, or ambassador of Jesus Christ with miraculous powers.
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.“
If you look in the New Testament you see the miracles performed by them. Many actuly know or knew Jesus personaly. In the early church some ministers were also called apostles.
Dammed (Katakrino kat-act-ree’-no)=Judged, sentenced. it’s a word with large and terrible meaning. The Good news it only appears 15 times in the Bible and only in the new testament, and as long as you have breath YOU CAN REPENT ! and accept Jesus.
“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.“
John 5 26:28
“For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.“
Don’t be fooled by the Devil and his minions. The only way to be damned is not believing in Jesus of Nazareth the Christ and hating him or doing evil. If people hate you then they hate Christ and if they hate Christ they hate God.
If you believe that Jesus is who he said he is you and can’t be damned.Get yourself baptised, forgive, repent and be saved! If you don’t belive let the word of God speak for itself. I’ve seen miracles and have been hated, threatened actually, while bearing my cross. It’s not easy but it is the way of Truth the light an the life.
May God bless and keep the faith. Consider becoming a servant of the LORD God and Jesus Christ while you can.
“And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. “
