One deed of repentance and the thief on the cross was saved…

After Jesus baptism but before the cross…

What was Jesus of Nazareth’s message, when he was here on earth before He was delivered unto the death of the cross?

Mat 4:17, “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

The scene of the cross…

Luke 23:35-43, “And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. (36) And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, (37) And saying, if thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. (38) And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. (39) And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. (40) But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? (41) And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. (42) And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. (43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

The repenting thief actions, he repented, he stopped the madness of people making fun of Jesus. He could not do much dying beside Jesus, but Jesus nailed to the crosss, got one more soul saved, Because the one thief repented and obeyed Jesus message that he preached: Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Did the one thief that was saved, repent and make amends with Jesus?

Yes, or no?

Did the repenting thief obey Jesus’ message?

Yes, or no?

So, then it is an obedient faith that saves, because even the devils believe and tremble… but a thief was saved by one deed of repentance in obeying Jesus message at life’s last dying breath.
