What will you do about JESUS ?

Today we are hearing of “multi-faith” meetings…..  this is a humanist idea (humanism puts human ideas at the center of spirituality)….. this is the religion of man…. meaning man decides what God is like and worships according to how he thinks it should be done.

Is this acceptable ? ….. NO WAY !

If you actually believe in a God that takes an interest in humans… dont you think He would have His own ideas about HOW He wants to be worshipped ????

The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to man…. and it gives very specific instructions concerning the worship that is acceptable to Him… and also what is NOT acceptable to Him.

JESUS is the only way to GOD…. He said so Himself……  not Mohamad, Budah, Krishna or anybody else…

No other prophet ever claimed Divinity….  Jesus cannot be a good man and  a liar at the same time…. this was the major problem people had with Him when He walked the earth because humans just cannot accept GOD in human form… particularly when He says things that they dont like.

“From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away ? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go ? Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that THOU ART THAT CHRIST, the Son of the Living God.” (John 6:66 – 69)

Dont you think that is AWESOME to be actually in the presence of the one who created the Universe and controls everything by His power ?…. CHRIST could do ANYTHING, and NOTHING was impossible for Him, but He remained humble and allowed the humans to do whatever they wanted with Him…. (however, that will never happen again…. and the next time He comes, it will be to CONQUER and DESTROY HIS ENEMIES).

In the time between His advents….  the time right now…. you have the choice, WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH CHRIST ?

Will you accept that He was WHO HE CLAIMED TO BE (and therefore OBEY His words)…. or will you call Him a LIAR ….. and accept instead, the teachings of Mohamad, Budah, Krishna ?

CHRIST is NOT a GOOD prophet…. HE is either KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS…. or else he is an outright deceiver and a liar or perhaps a well-meaning but mentally unstable individual.

His true followers CANNOT worship with people of “other faiths”

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness ? And what communion hath light with darkness ? And what concord hath Christ with Belial ? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel ?…… Wherefore come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (2 Corinthians 6:14 -17)

These “other faiths” will hate us for this separation….  but it must be so…

GOD is LOVE…. and He wants us to LOVE our fellow humans on the planet…. but LOVE does not mean COMPROMISE on matters of spiritual truth.

These “other faith”  people need to REPENT (change their mind) of their INCORRECT beliefs…. worshipping with them means that we agree that their FALSE DOCTRINE is acceptable.

It is INCORRECT application of Scripture to believe that the SPIRITUAL UNITY of humans that Christ preached extends to people of “other faiths”.

“Multi-faith” services fall into the same category as spiritual IDOLATRY…. where the children of Israel spoiled their separation to their God by mingling with the other races of the land and adopting some of their ideas and practices.

NO CHRISTIAN HAS ANY BUSINESS AT  “MULTI-FAITH” SERVICE

visions

People often ask how can you know what is the “true” meaning of passages in the Bible ?… some parts of the Bible could (possibly) be taken literally and other parts cannot be literal (because then it would make no sense)…. so who knows what it “means” ?…. how can we possibly know whose “interpretation” is correct ?….. because EVERYBODY uses the Bible to prove WHATEVER they want to prove…. even when it is an opposing viewpoint…so  one can prove almost ANYTHING from the Bible (by selectively picking out text).

A serious understanding comes about only by COMPARING passages…. and this was in fact, an important consideration when deciding what to INCLUDE and what to EXCLUDE of the various “books” and “manuscripts” that were available.

The works that have been EXCLUDED from the Bible have been done so for very good reasons…. and the information they contain  is  UNRELIABLE.

Consider visions of Ezekiel and John (Revelation)….

Read Ezekiel 1:10, Ezekiel 1:18 and then Revelation 4:7 – 8 ……  the SIMILARITY of these visions is striking…. maybe they both “saw” the same thing and just DESCRIBED it a little differently ? …. if both reports had been IDENTICAL, we might be suspicious  that the later one was aware of the former one…. but here we have accounts from two different people who lived THOUSANDS or years apart…. and no evidence that John knew of Ezekiel’s vision… but even if he knew of it, when he “saw” it for himself he described it differently…. this is EXACTLY what one would expect, if you show two different people the same thing and there is NO COLLUSION between them, you will get two different reports … differing in fine detail, but with  common aspects (the most significant features).

The lion is the symbol of kingship, the ox (or calf) is the symbol of servitude (servant-hood), the man represents humanity and the soaring eagle symbolizes Deity.

These four aspects of God in His dealings with the human race are manifested in Jesus Christ…. both human and Divine, He saved us through  His humiliation and servanthood… and will rule over the entire human race as the Divine King.

It is amazing to me that people “stumble” over Christ…. why should it be thought “unusual” that God would incarnate Himself as “one of His creation” ? …. What better way to understand and lead His people, than to become one of them ?

As I have said before, the problems that humans have with this …. they just CANNOT ACCEPT a God that “looks like them”…. PARTICULARLY a (apparently ?) POWERLESS and HUMBLE God….

It was not only that God came to them in the form of the man, Jesus Christ….. but He came HUMBLY, and allowed the “authorities” to do whatever they wanted with Him…..

This is not what they wanted from “their god”….. to earn “their respect”….. Jesus would have had to use FORCE and POWER to secure HIS PRE-EMINIENCE over them, and not simply cure sick people, raise dead people or walk on water (because those kind of miracles did not really “impress” them).

Can you not see that the problem with RULING BY FORCE does not change the heart ? …. they had the record of their ancestors, God had done that all already, He had already “ruled them by force”…. read Numbers 16:20-49 ….  all kings of the earth maintain their thrones by force continually and the instant they stop using force somebody else takes over.

GOD WANTS a people that serve Him VOLUNTARILY… and with their whole heart… and NOT because they fear His RETALIATION if they step out of line….  but humans, because of their evil wicked hearts and pride, will only serve someone that they FEAR.

Eventually…. it shall come about….

“the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace”  Psalm 37:11

“He maketh wars to cease unto the ends of the earth….”  Psalm 47:9

Also…. READ… Isaiah 2:4 and Micah 4:3  “… nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” ….. but the UNITED NATIONS cannot accomplish this….. mankind can NEVER achieve this…. when the time has fully come, Jesus Christ will achieve this…. but…. BEWARE…

“the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God”  Psalm 9:17

The present global trend of “ideas”…  of TOLERANCE, LOVE and PEACE….  sound so “wonderful” to our ears…. so scriptural….. so Godly…… BEWARE, it is NOT of GOD but of MAN…. because it embraces EVIL along with good…. it is the RELIGION of MAN…. it is MAN trying to reform himself…. it is MAN trying to be good on his own…WITHOUT “surrender to GOD” and … without the “way” of the Cross…. but WHAT FELLOWSHIP has LIGHT with DARKNESS ?….. the universal peace and brotherly love and tolerance that the New World Order will bring is a PRELUDE to the rise of ANTICHRIST where TRUE followers of JESUS will be branded “fanatics” and “disruptors of the peace” merely for daring to speak out against wickedness.

NOWHERE does the Bible teach that “love” means COMPLICITY with evil….. the Cross of Christ is a DIVIDER of men….  and fully reveals the JUSTICE of GOD against ungodly mankind….  as well as His love for the human race… therefore the “loving” followers of the ANTICHRIST and the New Age Religion will brand the Bible as a “nuisance” and “a book that stimulates division and spoils unity”…. and MANKIND will toss out the Bible IN FAVOR of their OWN IDEA of “righteousness”.

This is already beginning… the signs are there…. but the process will be slow…. so that people will “adapt” to the “new way of thinking” without even realizing the “process”.

If you love GOD today…. then ask Him continually for SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT so that you will not  be deceived by the “COUNTERFEIT religion” that is already at work in the souls of men…. that offers a “salvation of men” WITHOUT commitment to the “way of the Cross” of the only Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

There is NO OTHER way to be SAVED…. and many will fool themselves that they are “in Christ” when it is not so.

commitment

Matthew 24:12

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold”

Luke 18:8

“…. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth ?”

1 Timothy 3:5

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the  power of it”

Professed Christians who deliberately reject truth as to:

1. the Deity of Jesus Christ

2. Redemption through His atoning and redeeming sacrifice

This is NOT ignorance or heresy (due to the snare of Satan) both of which can exist along with true faith.

Apostates depart from the faith…. but not from the outward profession of Christianity.

believing themselves to be “true” Christians, they replace some of the truth of Scripture with fables.

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, Please give us WISDOM as we study Your Holy Bible… so that we be not deceived when others around us twist the meaning of the verses to satisfy their own devised doctrines… Amen
