Salvation is the most important decision you will make in your life!
Tivaldi (תִּוָּלְדִי ~ תיוולדי) in Hebrew means "will be born".
So while Tivaldi was born to teach sound Biblical stewardship the most important message we want to share is the plan of Salvation.
“… let him that is athirst, come: and let whosoever will, take of the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
The following was written by Dr. David Jeremiah on his “Turning Point” blog:
What Must I Do To Be Saved?
Exactly how does Jesus come into my life? What’s the process of becoming a Christian? Four brief passages of Scripture in the Book of Romans explain how to turn your life around through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
1. Because of our sin, we are separated from God.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Few people dispute this because we’re too aware of our weaknesses and moral failure. We all have regrets, and most of us deal with guilt at various times and in various ways. We know something is “broken” within us.
Someone sat down beside Will Rogers at a dinner and asked the comedian, “What's wrong with the world, anyway?” Rogers replied in his famous drawl, “Well, I dunno, I guess it’s people.”
In response to an article in The Times of London entitled, “What’s Wrong with the World?” the writer replied, “I am. Yours truly, G. K. Chesterton.” All of us are sinners, and we need to find some way for dealing with this problem.
2. The penalty for our sin is death.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
This verse encapsulates the whole Bible in a nutshell. God is life and light. He is pure and perfect. His presence cannot abide sin and wickedness; and because we have sinned, we’re separated from Him. As a result, we’re as dead as a tree limb when sawn from the main trunk.
The word death is used in the Bible in the sense of separation. Physical death occurs when the soul is separated from the body. James said, “The body without the spirit is dead.” (James 2:26) Spiritual death occurs when the spirit and body are eternally separated from God by sin. But this verse goes on to offer hope: God wants to give us a gift — eternal life through Jesus our Lord.
3. The penalty for our sin was paid by Jesus Christ.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
The verb “demonstrates” is a good, solid, active verb. It means that God didn’t just love us in a sentimental way. He did something in human history that proved His great love. It was the death of Jesus Christ. Though we are sinners, Christ died for us.
The great message of the Gospel is this: God loved us despite our sinfulness, and He chose to become a man Himself — Jesus Christ, the perfect, sinless God-Man — and to die in our place, taking the penalty of our sins upon Himself that we might have the promise of His life for ourselves. He loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.
4. If we repent of our sin then confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from our sins.
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. … For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:9, 10, 13)
There’s a promise we believe and a Person we receive. You can pray right now, telling God you’re ready to trust Christ as your Savior and confess Him as Lord. By the time you get to the final “Amen,” you’ll be a new person in Christ. Why not pray right now?
Dear God, I admit I’ve sinned and fallen short of your glory. I realize the penalty for my sin is death, and I believe it was paid by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. I’m willing to repent of my sins, and I now confess Christ as my Savior and make Him the Lord of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
5. Can you be sure that if you ask Christ to save you, He will?
Yes! He has done it. Take this promise with you:
“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:1, 13)
God bless you, and congratulations! Welcome to His family!
Les Feldick resources
The following verses are from the late Les Feldick on Salvation as well.
Our beloved Les Feldick was called home by our Lord on April 5, 2023 at the age of 95.
Les Feldick was an Oklahoma rancher since 1975 and had previously been an Iowa farmer.
Les and his wife, Iris, of 70 years raised three children, including a daughter called home by our Lord in 2017. From these have come nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Les loved teaching the Bible. He taught home-style Bible classes for over 50 years. His teaching, which is still on TV, radio, the internet, books, and DVDs, is non-denominational, and his students come from diverse denominations and backgrounds. It was through one of these classes that a student helped open the door for his "Through the Bible" television program.
Les never had any formal Bible training. It was through the Holy Spirit that he was able to teach night after night for many years, never using lesson plans or notes, and seemingly, never growing tired.
Les would start his classes in Genesis 1:1 and work all the way through the Bible. All the Scriptures quoted are referenced from the King James Version. Les commented that "Once a class has been 'Through the Bible' with me, we generally start over and do it again."
I would encourage everyone to listen to Mr. Feldick as he walks you Through The Bible for a Bible study like no other.
While we may not agree with some of Mr. Feldick's veiwpoints he does a great job of using scripture to interprete scripture so you can allow God to speak to you thru the Holy Bible.
23 For there is no difference: for all have sinned, and are deprived of the glory of God,
24 And are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a reconciliation through faith in his blood to declare his righteousness, by the forgiveness of the sins that are passed,
26 Through the patience of God, to show at this time his righteousness, that he might be just, and a justifier of him which is of the faith of Jesus.
27 Where is then the rejoicing? It is excluded. By what Law? of works? Nay: but by the Law of faith.
23 For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Grecian.
17 For by it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness, and unrighteousness of men, which withhold the truth in unrighteousness.
19 Forasmuch as that, which may be known of God, is manifest in them, for God hath showed it unto them.
I CORINTHIANS 15:1-6
1 Moreover brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you, which ye have also received, and wherein ye continue,
2 And whereby ye are saved, if ye keep in memory, after what manner I preached it unto you, except ye have believed in vain.
3 For first of all, I delivered unto you that which I received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
4 And that he was buried, and that he arose the third day, according to the Scriptures,
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve.
6 After that, he was seen of more than five hundred brethren at once: whereof many remain unto this present, and some also are asleep.
8 But God setteth out his love towards us, seeing that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life,
11 And not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth in him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
13 In whom also ye have trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, even the Gospel of your salvation, wherein also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with the holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance, for the redemption of that liberty purchased unto the praise of his glory.
I THESSALONIANS 4:13-18
13 I would not brethren, have you ignorant concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus is dead, and is risen, even so them which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him.
15 For this say we unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which live, and are remaining in the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which sleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore, comfort yourselves one another with these words.
8 But what saith it? The word is near thee, even in thy mouth, and in thine heart. This is the word of faith which we preach.
9 For if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart, that God raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth man confesseth to salvation.
11 For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth in him, shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Grecian: for he that is Lord over all, is rich unto all that call on him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord, shall be saved.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, AMEN.
