What is ‘The Gospel’?
The Gospel or ‘Good News’, may be best summarized from the New Testament ‘The Acts’, chapter 2, vs. 38 - 39:
38. Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord, our God, shall call.
If you do not know Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha-Meshiach) personally, then you have missed the most critical, the most important thing concerning your existence on this planet. No man comes unto the Father (the Creator, YHWH, Yahweh, God) BUT THROUGH AND BY Jesus. He is the door, the light, the truth, the absolute essence of all you search for and seek after in this life - every soul of every man, woman and child at some point cries out for Him and for His Truth. Though He died, He died in your place (the penalty for sin is DEATH), and for all who will ever call on Him.
He is now alive (there are multitudes of witnesses both historical and through the centuries even unto today), His blood sacrifice paid your eternal debt for your wrong doing, and He will manifest Himself unto you! If you feel or sense this tug within your spirit to cry out to Him, to ask Him to forgive you of your sins, to accept you and love you, to fellowship with you, to TALK TO YOU, to show Himself unto you, then it is NOT you, but it is the Creator of this universe seeking to Know you! Do not procrastinate, do not put off this urging (it may be only once!) from His Holy Spirit.
Please, do it now - speak to Him personally and from the depth of your being and do exactly what vs. 38 and 39 say to do. Repent *, be baptized **, and HE will confirm your request to Know Him by giving you the Holy Spirit.
Again, respond now, do not wait - time is growing very short!! Yahweh Himself will lead you unto all truth*** by the gift of His Holy Spirit, through the precious blood of Yeshua.****

If you’re pretty sure you’re a christian, perhaps you should go here , and download the Free ‘Darklight’ information*****. Read it, your eternal destiny may depend on it. At the very least you will be challenged to re-affirmate your relationship with the Father.
* (of your sins - just get on your knees, or bow your head or however you can focus on Him, and pray to Him! Look it up, it means to be willing to and begin systematically turning from [sin]. Sin - wrong actions, thoughts, deeds, words, wrong being what goes against His Word - Start with the Ten Commandments in Exodus chapter 20 vs 2 - 17. Also expounded upon by Jesus/Yeshua in Matthew Chptrs 5 - 7)
** (‘every one of you’ - find a believer, whether watchman, teacher, prophet, pastor or whomever that loves and believes in these truths, and have them baptize you - As soon as possible!)
*** Do not try to understand it all before giving in to His call - the carnal man (that’s us before we meet Him and receive His Holy Spirit) does NOT UNDERSTAND all of these things - they may at this time seem foolish or confusing. The highest intellect/IQ in the world cannot grasp all of this. This is normal. After you meet Him you will KNOW, and you will then become a Truth Lover, and you’ll KNOW that HIS WORDs are True! He never asks you to check your mind at-the-door however, as He is also the Creator of the universe and ‘made’ science and the physical universe with it’s laws. Prepare to embark upon a wondrous journey of learning about Him and how He functions.
