Tyrannus Hall seeks to give glory and honor to God as Creator. We declare the truth of the Biblical record as the real origin and eyewitness account of the history of the world and humanity (concentrating much of our focus on the first eleven chapters of the first book of the Bible, Genesis 1-11).
2 Corinthians 10:5 says, “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” Since it is the “lofty opinions” of the philosophy of Evolution (man-made origins story) that destroys the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ — we are compelled to “contend for the faith” (Jude 3) on the front lines of this battle.
Part of this real history is the bad news that the rebellion of the first man, Adam, against God’s command (Genesis 2:16-17) (circa 4004 b.c.) brought death, suffering, and separation from God into this world (Genesis 3:6-7, Romans 5:12, 1 Corinthians 15:21-22).
We see the results of this rebellion all around us (Romans 8:22-23). All of Adam’s descendants (which includes all of humanity, you, and me) have inherited a rebellious (sinful) nature from conception (Psalm 51:5) and have ourselves entered into this rebellion (sin). Therefore we cannot live with a holy God but are condemned to separation from our Creator.
The Bible says that ‘all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God’ (Romans 3:23). Therefore, all are subject to ‘eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might’ (2 Thessalonians 1:9).
But the good news is that God loves us and has done something about it. ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.’ (John 3:16). ‘Jesus Christ delivers or saves us from the wrath to come’ (1 Thessalonians 1:10). That wrath is our due punishment for the crimes (sin) against God. Jesus brings us back to a right relationship with God. “For Christ also suffered[ once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit (1 Peter 3:18).
Jesus Christ, the Creator, though completely sinless (1 Peter 2:22), stepped into humanity, suffered the wrath of God, the penalty of mankind’s sin, which is death and separation from God (2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Peter 3:18) on our behalf. Jesus did this to satisfy the righteous demands of the holiness and justice of God, His Father. Although we deserve the death penalty for our crimes committed against a holy and just Judge, Jesus Christ, who had committed no crime (see Luke 23:15), stepped in to take our punishment.
Jesus was the perfect sacrifice (Hebrews 10:14). He was crucified and died on a cross, but on the third day, He rose again, conquering death. All who genuinely believe in Him, repent of their sin, and trust in Him (rather than their own merit) are then, by God’s grace, brought back in a right relationship with God for eternity (Romans 10:13). For it is by faith in Jesus Christ’s finished work on the cross and rising from the dead that saves us from God’s wrath.
Therefore: ‘Whoever believes is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.’ (John 3:18).
What remarkable news. What a wonderful Savior—and what extraordinary salvation in Christ, our Creator!
Friend, none of us are worthy. Look to the cross. See the Son of God suffering on your behalf. See the wrath of God poured out onto Jesus Christ for YOU. See the love of God for YOU. May God open your eyes to this marvelous gift.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
We say what the Apostle Paul said to the Corinthians, “Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For he [God] says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
Turn to God (repent) and believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved for eternity with your Creator and Savior.
