So You “Think” You’re Saved…….ARE YOU?

At the very end of the New Testament, The book of REVELATION, CHAPTERS 21-22, gives people a VERY clear picture of what “Eternal Paradise/Heaven/New Millennial Kingdom” will look like.

But MANY PEOPLE, either knowingly or UNKNOWINGLY, don’t seem to be aware of the fact that VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it there. VERY FEW! In fact, today’s society says that “everyone goes to heaven”……

But folks, if THAT were true, Jesus himself wouldn’t have said in Matthew 7: 21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“. 

In other words, on the day of Judgement, MANY PEOPLE are going to be ETERNALLY SHUNNED BY JESUS and thrown into everlasting fire. But right before they’re thrown into the flames, those people are more or less gonna be like, “What???!!!! I don’t get it! I never killed anyone! I went to church every week! I believed in heaven! I thought EVERYONE went to heaven! Please give me a 2nd chance, Lord! I didn’t know!” But AS the bible states, Jesus CAN NOT and WILL NOT give those people a 2nd chance! For by then, it’ll be too late for all those people! FOR ETERNITY!

The problem with many Christians (and even non-Christians) today is that they don’t truly READ the bible, front to back, so they don’t even know what’s truly in there. They just blindly trust whatever the pastor says, whatever some preacher on TV says, whatever their friend/family member/coworker says…….they don’t ever bother looking it up for themselves, alot of the times, and just make base assumptions on what they THINK the bible preaches! And oftentimes, what they THINK the bible preaches? The bible actually preaches just the OPPOSITE!

For example: Gay marriage. You won’t find a single page in ALL the bible that “condones” such behavior! On the OTHER hand, you WILL find about 28+ passages which CONDEMN that sort of “behavior” and that even call it AN ABOMINATION!

Another example: Many in today’s society will say “We don’t NEED to repent of our sins since Jesus ALREADY died for our sins!” And many people THINK that’s what the bible truly teaches. However, the bible TRULY teaches the OPPOSITE:

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT  – [Matthew 7:13-14]

But not only THAT, Jesus/Yeshua goes EVEN FURTHER in Luke 12:32 [New Testament] when he says, “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. LITTLE FLOCK. LITTLE. He did NOT say “big flock”. He said “little flock” and “little flock” FOR A REASON, FOLKS!

The REASON is that VERY FEW people will TRULY desire to follow Christ in the last days (which we’re currently living in!) Why? Because they’re following Jesus in NAME only, and NOT in deed and action! They go to church every week, but forget Jesus the rest of the week. They listen to a sermon or read a blog post here and there, but haven’t picked up their bible in quite some time! They call themselves “Christian” but then turn around and support ABOMINABLE practices such as homosexuality/homosexual “rights”, divorce, premarital sex, abortion, etc.

Truth be told……SADLY……there’s many, many, MANY Christians out there today as a whole (and even some non-Christians, even) who “think” they’re Saved/will be Saved but are NOT truly saved…….

Remember the Pharisees and Sadducees in Jesus’s time? They thought they were living SO righteous, SO holy…by strictly following Jewish “law” for they thought the “law” would make them righteous…..

But what they didn’t realize is that their “Messiah” (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) was STANDING RIGHT BEFORE THEM and they acknowledged him not! In other words, they thought (in their own minds) that they were “mightier than God” since Jesus was “God in the flesh”.

However, in Isaiah 55:8-9, the Lord is recorded as saying: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LordFor as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”. 

Isaiah 64:6 further goes on to say, But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”.

HERE, this guy says it best at around the 4:50 mark and beyond

To be “Saved” by Yeshua/Jesus Christ is a BEAUTIFUL and WONDERFUL thing! However, it must be a TRUE heart-felt thing! In other words, we must obey Christ, not just out of sheer obligation, but because we WANT to and because we KNOW what HE, Christ, did for us during his crucifixion/resurrection/ascension back up to heaven to be on the right hand-hand throne of God, the Heavenly Father! (AND because HE, Christ, knows what’s best for us! He really, truly DOES folks, MARK MY WORDS!) 

Jesus is recorded as saying in John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my commandments”. In other words, in the Lord Jesus’s eyes, those who TRULY love him as Lord & Savior will OBEY HIM! Not just PARTIALLY (following only PARTS of the bible) but FULLY (following the ENTIRE bible, front to back!) And those who DON’T love him will NOT truly obey him or what he says in the bible! It’s THAT simple, folks!

So I leave you with this question: So you think you’re “Saved”…….but ARE YOU?

If Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today, would He be pleased by how you’re living? Would he find you observing the 7th-day BIBLICAL Saturday Sabbath? Would he find you celebrating the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.?) Would he find you FORSAKING all things “Pagan” (Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc.?)

Would he find you loving your neighbor as yourself and giving to those less fortunate than you? Would he find you TRUSTING in and PRAISING HIM, CONSTANTLY? Would he find you to be of TRUE FAITH (not only in HIM but in his WORDS in the bible?) Would he find you standing up FOR his gospel and PREACHING HIS GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS? In WHAT spiritual condition would he find you?

Matthew 6:21 expressedly states, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”.

In other words, the thing/s you treasure in life, is where you heart is, also! In other words, if you LOVE food, that’s where your heart is…….on food and NOT on Jesus/God Almighty! If you LOVE music/movies/TV shows/celebrities/alcohol/weed/partying, that’s where your heart “truly is”, NOT on the things of God!

Many, many Christians out there THINK they’re going to “heaven”…..THINK they’re living a “righteous and holy life”, THINK that there’s no way that Jesus could ever condemn THEM……..Yet sadly, many of these so-called “Christians” will end up in ETERNAL FLAMES because they are LUKEWARM and don’t TRULY love and OBEY Jesus the way they “claim”……..

Many Christians out there as well, aren’t full-water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (even though the bible specifically commands us to do that in 7+ passages as a further act of obedience to HIM, Almighty God!) It is the “ceremonial washing away of sin”, the public declaration of faith, the receiving of the gift of the Holy Spirit (which is the spirit of truth/spiritual discernment), etc.

Revelation 7:3 says, “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads”. Now, is that talking about full-water immersion baptism? Only the Lord himself could say. Still….the matter remains…….only a very few SELECT FEW will get to experience the full eternal peace of beauty of Revelation, Chapters 21-22, in the New Testament.

Go ahead. Read it. Both Chapters. Revelation 21-22, at the very end of the New Testament. And then try to tell me you don’t want to be there, someday. I bet you can’t.

IF you want that to be your eternity reality someday, than don’t just BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, OBEY HIM! OBEY HIM **FULLY**! [And believe me folks, that goes JUST AS MUCH for me as it does for all of YOU!]

Stop making excuses, people! Stop saying to yourselves, “But I’m tired! I don’t WANT to read the bible right now! I’ll NEVER be good enough to make it to the New Millennial Kingdom! Who cares, anyways? Hardly ANYONE’ll be considered worthy enough to go there anyways, so why even try! Everyone goes to heaven, who cares who’s righteous or not! Jesus will accept me, rather I’m gay or not!”

Just stop it with the excuses, folks! Stop it right now! “Check yourself before you wreck yourself”, as one Christian on Youtube has once said a time or more. Is all that “sin” in your lives worth it? Is 5 minutes of pleasure worth AN ETERNITY IN FLAMES?

Only Jesus Christ/Yeshua himself will be able to determine rather you’re truly “Saved” in his great, heavenly name or not, on the Day of Judgement. But until then, HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE HIM, REPENT OF ALL YOUR SINS, AND CRY OUT TO HIM TO SAVE YOU AND HE WILL SAVE YOU! MARK MY WORDS!

Don’t live a life without Christ, folks! It’s not worth it! 5 minutes of pleasure is NOT worth an eternity in FLAMES! And a life without Christ at the head/center is not a life worth living! For what IS life without Christ? Answer: NOTHING! Why? Because Jesus Christ/God in the flesh is the author and CREATOR of all life! He is LIFE ETERNAL and the GRANTER of everlasting life!

He created the universe and the heavens! Therefore, doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens, and can count the number of hairs on your head and has the keys to hell and death, that it would pay to SERVE HIM? Why serve Satan/pleasure, the father of all lies, the being/things that will take you straight to hell/eternal destruction in the flames? 

On the Day of Judgement, Jesus will likely ask people if all their “unrepentant sin” was worth it. What will most people say? What will YOU say, on that fateful day? 

The choice is up to YOU, folks! But don’t EVER say I never warned you! 

THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL: PREYING UPON THE WEAK!

MANY a televangelist in today’s world begs for $$$$$! And I’ve always wondered WHY! Churches are “tax-exempt”. So WHY then do they need people’s money? Is it REALLY necessary? What’s more, all of that donation money is TAX FREE!

Rather or not this guy in the video down below is an actual atheist or not is besides the point! He’s actually done an extremely good “expose” on some of today’s most prominent “prosperity preachers”.

WARNING: there might be a few bare hints of bleeped out cuss words here and there in his “broadcast”, but his overall message is solid! Today’s prosperity preachers are PREYING upon the weak and feeble-minded!

But then again, don’t nearly ALL modern-day “Christian churches” more or less do that? Ask for DONATIONS upon DONATIONS upon DONATIONS from the weak and feeble-minded?

Many of today’s preachers have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them……..asking for $$$$$$$ and donations for ANY reason or for NO reason, professing to “speak in tongues” (which is a bunch of demonic *mumbo-jumbo*), preaching the “prosperity gospel” that “if you send money, God will bless you”, etc.,etc.

And when even a so-called ATHEIST has to come out against these people, you KNOW they’re really, really bad and corrupt! For if they weren’t corrupt at all, the so-called atheists and non-believers wouldn’t have a leg to stand on!

I’m just so SICKENED of all the LIES and CORRUPTION I see in the modern-day “Church” today (as a whole!) People are just SO lost! “Churches” themselves and those that run them (as a whole) are just SO LOST! And Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua is ANGRY!

They (as a whole) have DENIED HIS ALMIGHTY NAME! They (in tune with 2 Timothy 3:5 in the New Testament) are described by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ as “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away“. In other words, Jesus Christ tells us to TURN AWAY FROM SUCH PEOPLE!

Today’s “church” (as a whole), as I’ve stated time and time and time again, does NOT worship the TRUE Jesus Christ of the bible but instead, worships a false, profane PAGANIZED version of him! And it’s really no wonder since many of today’s preachers (as a whole) want your $$$, $$$$ and more $$$$$! Like I said, they have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them!

For we MUST remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE! So why then do they need to “charge” for it? (Jesus Christ & his disciples never charged a SINGLE PENNY!) So why then do THEY need YOUR hard-earned work money, more than a poor, homeless guy sitting on a street corner with nothing to eat, for example? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! REALLY TRULY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE FOR AWHILE!

Jesus Christ told us in the New Testament to give to those in need. Well folks, I’m sorry but today’s preachers (as as a whole) are filthy RICH! They are NOT “in need”. True, many of them profess to use that money to “help others overseas” and to “help orphaned children in Africa” or this or that or what have you.

And while these are all good things and we SHOULD help people in need all over the world, why does it forever seem like none of these “mega-pastors” EVER truly help anyone in need (especially homeless or starving children) here in AMERICA? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS!

They want you to put money in their “coffers”, and yet, they completely IGNORE the fact that there’s thousands of starving/hungry children HERE IN AMERICA whose parents aren’t able to find or keep a job, or that has a job that pays WAY too little, etc.

And also: just where does all that money REALLY go, folks? Have you ever truly thought about that? Have you ever actually physically SEEN the “orphanage” that said preacher claims to want to raise money for? Have you ever actually SEEN images of the improved conditions of orphaned children in Africa, or even OF the individual “orphaned children” in Africa, for example? Have you ever actually SEEN a full, true, TRANSPARENT disclosure of a mega church’s “finances”? My guess is no.

On the other hand, have you ever noticed that most mega-pastors today have “high-tech expensive gadgets”, drive nice cars, live in NICE HOMES? Many unknowing people say, “they preach the Word of God all day, they DESERVE to live in a nice home and make lots of money”. REALLY? I wasn’t aware that Jesus Christ, according to THEM, was the God of Wealth & Money! However, we DO know that many “famous people” have sold their souls to THE DEVIL for money! So is SATAN the god of money, then? YOU be the judge!  

On the other hand, look at all the hard-working ministries out there that NEVER ask for a SINGLE DIME from people (like, this one for instance!). If they never ask for a single dime from people, then by deductive reasoning, that must mean that they’re paying with their own money for any “materials” for their ministry. 

In fact, I once had a person ask me if I accepted donations and I said in response “no, I don’t, for the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE”. Therefore, I REALLY, truly hope that person took that statement of mine, applied it to their life, and FLEED from all “money-grabbing pastors” that only want their $$$$$$$ and nothing more!

Have you ever ONCE known a disciple of Jesus to say to one of the ancient Jewish or Gentile people, “Give me $2 and I’ll cure you?” OFCOURSE NOT!

Folks, here’s the brutal reality. What do “mega-ministries” need money for? Today’s “church” (as a whole) is run like a BUSINESS! Donations, church “budgets”, church “real estate”, pastor’s salaries, etc.

If I myself can carry out a daily job IN ADDITION to the work I do here at my “mini-ministry” here on WordPress, and I don’t charge a SINGLE PENNY, then why do many “televangelic ministries” out there have to charge a kazillion dollars (metaphorically speaking) through “donations”, just to get people closer to God? I don’t get it.

I never ask for donations because I don’t need them nor want them. If the Lord wants me to start a “major project”, the Lord will somehow provide for my financial needs and I don’t need other people’s hard-earned work money to do it!!!!!!

In fact, money is the LAST thing on my mind these days! I’m FAR more concerned about all the “lost souls” out there and getting them saved (TRULY “Saved”, that is) in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ, THE BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST, NOT the Pagan one taught in the churches today! [But again, there are a couple of good ministries out there that ask for donations but do so for the all the right reasons……more about that later]. 

Nothing boils my blood to anger faster than seeing “spiritually corrupt” mega-pastors or big-time ministers asking for $$$$ all the time from the “church goers”. But see, folks? That’s the problem right then and there. Church is not a place you “go to”, for you MUST remember that the “true church”, the BIBLICAL CHURCH, is consisted of the body/assembly of believers THEMSELVES!

In other words, we don’t “go to church”, for we ourselves (each and every single one of us) ARE “the church”. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

Let me put this in a different way. Sally A “attends church every week”. But she forgets God the rest of the week. She sees “the church” as a BUILDING! She passes by NUMEROUS homeless people each day or poor people holding up signs asking for food.

But all she ever does is gawk at them as she passes by and says to herself, “What a bum! They should get a job” (as though a job was easily attainable for said person!) If a homeless person directly approaches her and kindly asks for money to buy food, she’ll retort, “Get a job! Then you won’t be homeless and hungry, anymore!” and walks off, without giving the homeless person a second thought, as she elegantly whisks her purse over her shoulder and thinks about her numerous other plans and errands for the day, etc. 

But Daniel B does NOT see the church as a “building” but rather sees HIMSELF (the true believer in Christ) as “the church”. For example, he sees a homeless man on the street one day and goes into a nearby restaurant and buys the homeless man and himself a meal.

He then kindly walks up to the homeless man afterwards and says, “Hi, how are YOU today, sir? My name is Daniel and I’d like to sit down with you for awhile and also give you a free meal today, if that’s alright with you”.

And then, once the meal is given to the man, Daniel might possibly eat his own meal WITH the man and talk to him for awhile, and ask how he came to be homeless and try to figure out a solution to the man’s plight. AS he’s doing this, he’ll also at the same time preach to the man the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ Almighty. THAT is true evangelism, folks! THAT is the TRUE, BIBLICAL “CHURCH MODEL”…….”being” the church, instead of “going to church”.

Many people, for example, will donate their food to a food pantry but they will NEVER stop to talk to a homeless person carrying a sign IN PERSON, etc. People will oftentimes BLAME the homeless individual for their own circumstances. But they need to THINK…….how would THEY feel if THEY were in that dire situation in life and nobody ever came to THEIR rescue and did nothing but look down on THEM and ridicule THEM? How would THEY feel?

Also, it is wrong to make assumptions about people. You don’t know that homeless person carrying a sign, personally. You have NO IDEA who they are, what they’ve been through, where they’ve been or where they’re going. You don’t even know just by looking at them if they’re to blame for their own circumstances or not. There’s plenty of homeless veterans out there, for example, that can’t find jobs for instance, because people are now looking down on the military, just like they did after the war in Vietnam! (Do your research, folks!)

Plus, I kid you not, there’s even people with PhD’s who are now homeless, due to no fault of their own! And these poor people can’t even find a job at a local McDonald’s, etc. since they are OVER-QUALIFIED! And my guess is that they probably don’t qualify for food stamps either since their level of education is much too high to “qualify” for them!

So these people are TRULY stuck! (And then, after awhile, when finding no job prospects, many of these people probably feel like giving up! But it’s “the true/biblical church’s” job (the believers in Jesus Christ, THEMSELVES), to make sure they DON’T give up, folks!)

True, some homeless people might be mean and violent. Some might try to mug or rob you. But you can’t let the fear of possible reactions keep you from doing God’s Work here on this Earth! Jesus Christ has given us all a divine commission while here on this Earth and that’s to do the Will of God. “What’s the will of God?”, some might ask. Answer: It is to do the Father’s Will. “What is the Heavenly Father’s Will?”, some might ask again. It is to read, follow and DIRECTLY APPLY the written word of God to our lives!

For example, don’t just READ about what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount of how we are to help those in need. Actively DO just that, in your own life! In other words, don’t just BELIEVE the gospel but actually DO the gospel! 

Most of us see atleast ONE homeless person with a sign every few days. How many of those people have we stopped and helped? How many? [And believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for anyone else!] True, you can make as MANY excuses in the book as you want to, as to why you didn’t help said person(s). But know this: on the Day of Judgement, the Lord Jesus Christ is gonna judge us for EVERY thought, word, deed and action.

In fact, Matthew 25: 31-40 states:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me”. 

However, in Matthew 25: 41-46, Jesus states:

Then shall he [Jesus Christ] say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”.

Therefore, a BIG part of following the Heavenly Father’s will seems to be helping those who are less fortunate than us (namely, homeless and poor people, etc.) The people in category 1 (the Sally A category) will end up being placed among the “goats” on the Day of Judgement. But the category II people (the “Daniel B’s”) will end up being pleasantly surprised as they’re placed among the “sheep” on the Day of Judgement.

Jesus Christ also says in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments” and in John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”. However, Jesus Christ says in John 14:24 “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me”.

And Matthew 5:17-18 states: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”.

Which, in plain English, means that the 10 commandments and Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and 7th day Sabbath (Saturday) STILL apply/are REQUIRED by ALL of the Lord’s people (Jew and Gentile, alike) and that everything won’t be fulfilled UNTIL the times of Revelation, chapter 21-22! 

Therefore, I ask of you today. Are you a “Sally A” or a “Daniel B” type person? I pray that if you’re NOT a “Daniel B”, that you’ll learn to BECOME a “Daniel B” type of person……..and learn how to “BE” the church, instead of “going to church”.

But if you’ve been like a “Sally A” person most of your life, fret not! For there is still time for you to REPENT and learn to become more like a “Daniel B”! Whatever excuses you tried to use to justify your sin of not giving to homeless people in the past, or forgiving so and so for hurting you, etc., throw those excuses out the window and give them no merit, anymore! Ask the Lord Jesus to cleanse your mind, heart, body and spirit and to give you a new heart that’s after HIS own heart!

JESUS cared about the sick, the poor, the blind, the disabled, the lepers, etc. So don’t don’t WE, as a whole? JESUS cared about the homeless and those broken in spirit! So why don’t WE, as a whole?

How many of us have had a friend come to us in their emotional, financial, spiritual, etc,. time of need, and we thought in our hearts, “Blah blah blah, okay, enough already, stop talking, this is getting to be too emotionally draining for me, I can’t take it anymore!” as we sat or stood there and said over and over again, “uh huh, uh huh”, while only halfway listening to them, in response? [Ahem……Guilty, here. And the Lord convicted me of that so strongly….so let that serve as a warning to you all!] 

Just like how many of us have passed a homeless person carrying a sign or signs on the street and thought to ourselves, “get a job, you bum!” Or have gone to church our while lives, thinking that “attending church” would be enough for us to be in “good standing” with God/Jesus Christ Almighty? Probably a heck of alot more of us than we would care to admit!

Matthew 7:13-14 talks about JUST HOW HARD IT IS to get into the “sheep” category of Jesus Christ’s Judgement, someday: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it“.

In other words, obeying the will of God in heaven is a NARROW WAY. Which means VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW IT! Think for example, of how many “Christians” support gay ‘marriage’ and gay adoptions, today! That is an example of Christians following the BROAD PATH, the one that leads to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Here, I’ve attempted to make a Youtube video that illustrates the major differences between the BROAD WAY and the NARROW WAY. And there’s so much more I wanted to add in the video but I had to pick and choose the most important pics due to time constraints. But hopefully the video will give you a more “clearer” visual picture of the meaning of the Matthew 7:13-14 passage!

And here, Paul Washer gives a sermon on what the NARROW WAY is:

But I ask of you RIGHT NOW…….before you give another $1 to ANY ministry, ask yourself if that ministry:

  1. Preaches that we HAVE no sin since “Jesus already payed for our sins”
  2. Preaches that you must “sow seed” (GIVE MONEY) in order to RECEIVE MONEY or blessings
  3. Proclaims to “speak in tongues” (which is honestly nothing more than *demonic babble*)
  4. Proclaims to “immediately heal” “ailments” in the name of Jesus through the television or computer screen, without ever having seen said person with said “ailment” IN PERSON 
  5. Is purposely non-transparent or “vague” about their finances and “budget”
  6. Preaches on SUNDAY (the FALSE Sabbath)
  7. Partakes of FALSE/PAGANIZED holidays such as Christmas, Easter, etc.
  8. Teaches that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost) are “Jewish feasts, ONLY”
  9. Teaches that Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ
  10. Teaches that the “Christian church” has replaced Israel
  11. Preaches that God WANTS you to be wealthy
  12. Etc.

If a ministry you’re “thinking” about donating to displays any of those 12 signs, don’t walk away from that ministry, FLEE!

However, if a ministry displays any of the following 12 signs, they might possibly be an “OK” ministry to donate to (provided you have the TRUE finances for it and provided the Lord and the ministry itself *humbly* LEADS you to do so):

  1. Preaches that we’re all sinners and that we need to REPENT of our sins!
  2. Preaches the “Jewishness” of Jesus
  3. Celebrates in and STRONGLY encourages people to celebrate in the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.)
  4. Worships on the true, BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: please remember that  a Jewish “day” begins at sundown, the night before!)
  5. Does NOT preach that the modern day “church” has replaced Israel
  6. Does NOT preach that God wants you to be wealthy
  7. Preaches about the importance of actively DOING the Word of God, not just reading about it in the bible!
  8. Preaches that even JEWS themselves need to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty!
  9. Is totally upfront about their finances and their budget. As in, you can clearly see where all your money’s going. You can see actual physical body evidence of it being money well spent for the kingdom of God.
  10. Does NOT proclaim to speak in tongues, per say
  11. Does NOT preach that you must “send money” in order to be blessed by God!
  12. ****Talks about THE TRUTH about the times we’re living in as it pertains to bible prophecy, and THE TRUTH about the “abominable sins” of homosexuality and abortion, etc.****
  13. In other words, if you’re going to “donate” to a ministry AT ALL, atleast make sure to ONLY donate to a ministry that TELLS YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE THINGS!   
  14. But a good general rule of thumb is not to “donate” to 97% of today’s “ministries”! Why? BECAUSE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY IS FREE, AND WILL **ALWAYS** BE FREE!

For Jesus Christ said in John 8:38 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. And guess what? Jesus Christ never charged a SINGLE PENNY for his gospel of Salvation! So why should WE? Think about that long and hard, folks!

One end-times ministry out there I enjoy listening to is the one called “Open Your Eyes People”, led by Anita & Ignacio Fuentes. They preach AGAINST homosexuality and “politically correct”, AGAINST abortion, tell you THE TRUTH about what the bible says on many topics, while also teaching the IMPORTANCE of bible prophecy and HOW it pertains to End Times events, while also preaching the IMPORTANCE of getting right with God/Jesus Christ and STAYING right with him!

They preach about sin, being born again, REPENTING of sin, READING **and** OBEYING the bible, the TRUTH about things in the News, etc. Basically, they preach THE TRUTH about things — as a whole — and don’t give you any watered-down messages like you get in the churches today! They’re RAW and HONEST! And YES — they DO ask for donations but the money is well spent! They hold bible prophecy conferences, they send out free bibles to those who need one, they send out welcome packages to new Christians or those who’ve returned to Christ after a long hiatus!  

As for all the OTHER ministries out there that ask for money? Specifically ones like Joel Osteen, Benny Hin, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdock, Robert Tillman, etc.? These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing! They DON’T give a care about your Salvation or your walk with God! Can you EVER imagine Jesus Christ saying to people, “the love of money is the root of ALL righteousness?” OFCOURSE NOT! And when I hear over the radio things like, “we’ll send out our full entire CD set for 50% off for a donation of any amount, etc.”, I’m always silently thinking to myself, “why can’t these people just send this stuff out for free if they REALLY, truly care about all the lost souls out there so much?”

But then again, maybe it’s just my own frustration talking, there. I myself have sacrificed my OWN hard-earned work money for my “witnessing projects”, so why can’t those mega-pastor folks who ask for money all the time do the same? It honestly reminds me of beggars in the street. Beggars NEED food and money though, since they HAVE NONE. What are mega-pastors’ excuse? Ya know? Jesus’s disciples never asked for money to preach the gospel. Am I missing something, here?  

But in fact, it seems quite fitting when Jesus said in Matthew 19:24 “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” and in 2 Timothy 3:4-5 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” and 2 Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”.

James 1:22 states: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves”.

Can it get ANY MORE CLEARER THAN THAT, PEOPLE? Ask yourselves that!

What’s Called “Christian” Isn’t Always Christian! BEWARE!

I am amazed just how many people today think that just because certain music is labeled as “Christian“, that it must AUTOMATICALLY be good. But that personally can’t be further from the truth!

Here are just a few, sad examples of what modern day “Christian music” entails:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIcrgRMogP8 [Christian metal]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIbkTH1b1gU [Christian electro]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l18KIdZ_pDc [Christian rock]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73rjIq8UoEk [Christian rap]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3o8tjegpI8 [Christian rock]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAP51A4g5m8 [Christian country/pop]

Compare all those modern day examples with music that might’ve been traditional around the time of Jesus Christ

Christian Berdahl’s music seminar drives home the point I want to make on this:

Not to mention that pastor JD Farag gives an EXCELLENT presentation on the subject:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKMTE6AXjII Part 7 [watch ALL of it, but specifically focus around 1:30]

Plus walk into just about ANY church worship today and you won’t find the true spirit of God anywhere NEAR! For Satan has now taken over today’s Christian music and today’s Christian churches. Just look at the number of today’s Christian churches who now OPENLY SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE and/or have OPENLY GAY CLERGY/PASTORS!

I even most recently had an experience where I walked into a local Lutheran church and had the shock of my LIFE! Not only did they entrust a 7-10 year old boy in a suit to take care of the “offering plate”, who seemed to scowl with disgust at anyone not putting money in it, but the pastor noted that the money wasn’t EVEN counted/accounted for (from what I understand of it), they barely mentioned the name of Jesus Christ AT ALL, sung hymns for a good 45 minutes, had people dressed to the nines, had a HUGE idolatrous statue of Jesus by the altar and (GASP!) had something written at the very bottom of their worship literature which stated “glory be to the Roman Catholic Church” or something of the like. I was HORRIFIED! And I’ve never stepped foot back inside that church ever, EVER again!

But then it finally occurred to me. It wasn’t just the Lutheran church or the Methodist church or the Baptist church etc., that had gone astray. But in fact, practically ALL the local churches here where I live have gone astray. Why? Because first of all, they were all worshipping on SUNDAY, which is the WRONG SABBATH! [The bible says the Sabbath is the SEVENTH day of the week, NOT the FIRST DAY of the week!] And secondly, all they seemed to care about were money, appearances, church budgets, who’s donating the most to charity, ways to RAISE more money for the church, and numbers. Not ONE person I saw ever gave their testimony of how they came to faith in Jesus Christ or even seemed to give a care in the world about me or why I was even there. In fact, Jesus Christ was barely even mentioned at all. Not to mention that I didn’t feel spiritually alive while attending any of their sermons. In fact, I felt quite dead on the inside.

Many Christians (and even non-Christians alike) seem to think that “being a true Christian” means going to church every Sunday and also that ANY music or object labeled as Christian is OK. But that couldn’t be further from the truth! God is not confined to a building or 4 walls. Many pastors and church people think that having a beautiful “building” will somehow glorify God and glorify their particular church. But they are only fooling themselves. For God searches the hearts and minds of ALL people. God cares more about what they are doing to serve HIM, rather than what they are doing to serve themselves or fellow man/popular culture!

So that begs of question, then…….what IS true Christian music and what IS a “true Christian?” and/or a true Christian church?

Answer A: TRUE Christian music comes from the soul. It is whatever music calms our minds and spirit and INSPIRES us to worship and serve God/Jesus Christ. Can someone truly say that Christian metal (which sounds no different from secular metal) or that Christian rap or electro music calms their spirit and truly INSPIRES them to worship/serve God/Jesus Christ?

Answer B: A TRUE Christian is one that reads the bible (front to back), takes it to 100% heart and actually believes and does what it says. For example, a person can’t just believe in the 10 commandments, the Oliviet Discourse/Sermon On The Mount and the Old & New Testament teachings about the Sabbath, etc. A person must actively KEEP THEM. For Jesus Christ said in the bible “if you love me, you will obey my commandments”. They will REPENT of their sins and realize their NEED for a Savior (Jesus Christ). They will also practice what they preach. For example, if they say people should give to the poor, then they will do likewise. They will also be wise as a serpent but gentle as a dove. They will strive to live their lives as close to the “ideal” as possible that Jesus Christ set for his followers in the bible. They will be slow to anger and quick to love. They will care more about what Jesus Christ thinks of them than what the world/popular culture/other people think of them. Etc.

Answer C: A TRUE Christian church is a small fellowship of believers who not only READ the bible front to back but that take it to 100% heart. So in other words, a TRUE Christian church would make the SEVENTH DAY (Saturday) the SABBATH, and NOT the First day of the week (Sunday). Plus they would also (in general) NOT partake in Pagan/Pagan Originated Holidays such as New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, Birthdays and Christmas and WOULD partake of the Lord’s Seven Annual Holidays (which the Lord’s people will STILL be celebrating, even during the time of the Millennial Kingdom – specifically the Feast of Tabernacles).

And no, I’m honestly not sure HOW ancient biblical peoples kept track of their age and what not. They didn’t celebrate birthdays more than likely, since the bible would’ve likely mentioned it if they had. But they had to’ve done SOMETHING to keep diligent track of how old people were back then and I’m not sure what that “something” is. If anyone ever finds the answer, let me know.

But I ask you this: the next time you or your church celebrate a holiday, ask yourself if that holiday is really, truly of God/Jesus Christ or not and rather or not the bible truly commands you to celebrate such holidays. If not, then it would be wise to not celebrate them and focus on worshipping Jesus Christ, instead (the one you SHOULD be worshipping if you are a true Christian).

And when you listen to “Christian” music or videos on Youtube or read “Christian” magazine articles or blogs, or watch “Christian” movies on Netflix, etc., ask yourself if that music, video, book, article, blog is truly “biblical” or not. Because believe it or not, there are many things in Christian movies that actually go AGAINST the bible. One example of this is in the movie called “Jesus: The Greatest Story Ever Told”, starring Jeremy Sisto as Jesus. There are SEVERAL biblical inaccuracies, as follows:

1). John the Baptist tells Jesus to repent of his sins. This is an abomination! For Jesus Christ HAD no sin!

2). Mother Mary had to prompt Jesus to go out into the world and “find his way”. This is wrong! Jesus Christ knew who he was from the beginning and needed no “prompting” on anyone’s part, for example, when he stayed in the heavenly Father’s house (the temple) when he was only 12 years old!

3). When father Joseph dies, Jesus gets angry and yells at God, demanding Him to bring Joseph back to life. The real Jesus would NEVER do that. He said from the beginning that everything he did was not his will, but the will of the Father in Heaven. 

4). Instead of Jesus going out to greet/collect the first of his two disciples while they were fishing on the boat, the 2 disciples first come to HIM!

5). When confronted by a Gentile woman begging for help, Jesus (Jeremy Sisto) says : “this woman has taught me that my message is for the Gentiles, too” [Jesus Christ is the Lord and he NEEDS no teaching from ANY “human”!]

6). He has a romantic interest in Mary (sister of Martha) & considers marrying her [Jesus doesn’t lust!]

7). He has no siblings [a nod to the Catholic church, that claims that Mary was a perpetual virgin, even though the bible says that JESUS HAD BROTHERS AND SISTERS!]

8). He is baptized in knee-deep water with SPRINKLING, instead of FULL IMMERSION!

9). A crippled man he healed had to be helped to walk afterwards due to his atrophied muscles still being weak and painful.

10). Instead of Jesus being on the boat WITH the disciples DURING the time of the STORM, the movie shows Jesus (Jeremy Sisto) out in the middle of the ocean [during the time of the storm] walking TOWARDS the boat.

And I’m sure there’s probably more, but the for sake of space, I will just cover those 10, for now. But the point I want to try to make is that what is called “Christian” isn’t always, truly Christian. You can’t mix truth with lies! Therefore, I’m sad to say that the movie Jesus: The Greatest Story Ever Told is a lie! It depicts a human, non-divine Jesus. I mean, even just looking at the video cover makes me CRINGE! It shows the actor who portrayed Jesus with his robe a little down and his chest showing, AS IF to subconsciously advertize him as some sort of “sex symbol!”

Actually, my best advice to you all is NOT to watch “Jesus movies”. Because the one I just mentioned up above is only a slew of MANY biblically inaccurate movies out there! And the producers/directors want to cry out “right of creative film-making” but the truth is, you can’t exchange the true, biblical truth of Jesus for a lie!

I pray that ALL who read this will further think about what type of reading, blogs, movies, music, tv they let into their hearts, minds and homes, and do away  with the things that aren’t pleasing to the Lord Yeshua/Jesus Christ and that all Christian movie/music producers will STOP making biblically inaccurate music and movies and start making TRUE, biblical music and movies, based 100% from the bible, word for word, King James Version. Amen.

 

WARNING: Rise Of The “Watered-Down” Gospel

[I say this with love to all my non-Christian as well as Christian people out there, so that your eyes may be “opened” to the truth about what IS or ISN’T the true gospel of Jesus Christ!]

Money, self, globalism, pleasure. Sound familiar? Those are the 4 major “pursuits” of today’s world.

Money, self, globalism, pleasure. Sound familiar, once more? Those are the current pursuits of many of the Christian churches today, as well (though there are STILL some good bible-believing, God-fearing churches out there).

As the TRUE church/gospel of Jesus Christ (as a whole) has gotten more and more attacked over the years, many churches of today have become more “world friendly” in response. Non-biblical doctrines such as “God wants us to be rich”, “there is no such thing as sin and/or condemnation for sin”, “all you have to do is merely believe in Jesus to be saved”, “more than Jesus is needed for salvation”, etc. run RAMPANT in today’s church.

And with many Christian churches today now living like “the world”, it is NO WONDER that there are so many lost souls out there (people who’ve strayed away from the religion, have negative viewpoints about it, or that don’t know anything about it: the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ, that is).

But of all the “Non-biblical doctrines” out there, the ones that state “God wants you to be rich” and “there are many paths to eternal paradise and/or spiritual enlightenment” are probably the most prominent ones.

—————————————————————————–

Matthew 16:24 in the New Testament states:Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

John 14:6 records Jesus Christ as saying: “I am the way, the Truth and the Light. No-one cometh unto the Father but by Me”. In other words, Jesus Christ was/is saying in John 14:6 that he is the ONLY way to eternal paradise, the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins, and is the ONLY way to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/spiritual discernment (upon full baptism in his name). In other words, Jesus Christ is the “doorway” by which eternal paradise and forgiveness of sins may be found.

Matthew 7:14 (book of Matthew, chapter 7, verse 13-14) has THIS to say: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

—————————————————————————–

Translation? MANY people will buy into Satan’s lies (false gospels other than Jesus Christ being the son of God and ONLY way for salvation, etc.) and think that they don’t have to do anything other than “believe” in Jesus Christ to be saved and many will live their lives how THEY want to live them, instead of how GOD wants them to live them and will take the “easy way out” of life.

They will be the people who cling to money and material possessions, who value self over others, who follow man’s traditions (Sunday Sabbath, which is a FALSE Sabbath) instead of God’s traditions (the TRUE Sabbath plus the 7 required feasts of the Lord), who let their love of music/movies/videogames/entertainment/etc. overtake them…..

They will want to “mock God” because it is considered the “cool” and “in-thing” to do. They will care more what their friends/family/fellow society thinks of them rather than what God thinks of them. They will be arrogant and prideful and think they don’t have a “need” of God.

And they, in their own spiritual or deliberate blindness, will deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and deny that he is the ONLY way to salvation and eternal life. And these people will number upon the thousands and thousands, if not millions. Many of them will even come from Christian churches……churches that “proclaim” to be Christian, yet, preach a message that’s SO watered down, SO false, that it might as well be a church of the Devil.

But a very few select people (very small in number) will read and search the scriptures, believe in Jesus Christ, get baptized in his name, pray for forgiveness of their sins, repent of their sins and actually try to LIVE their lives for Jesus Christ by obeying his commandments as much as possible. These people will NOT bow down to pressure from “the world” or “today’s culture” and upon threat of death, will obey Jesus’s commandments in the bible to their last breath…..

They WON’T believe the major lie of Sunday being the Sabbath or the false teaching that the Sabbath doesn’t matter anymore, etc. They will actually read their bibles in order to have spiritual discernment from all the false teachings floating around today. And these people will face MUCH clamour and opposition. People will be telling them how “hateful” they are because they don’t accept gay marriages and the like.

People will also mock and ridicule them and tell them how “silly” and “anal” they are for wanting to celebrate the Sabbath on its TRUE time-frame (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) instead of on “mans’ traditional Sunday”. And they will be very small in number but big on faith. And it will be their faith in and servitude to Jesus Christ that sets them apart from the rest. They are the very few that will find the narrow gate (Jesus Christ).

Then again, (and I say this with love), the only thing many people want to hear these days is all of the “good” and “flowery” messages about God. Messages such as, “God is love”, “God is forgiving” etc. They don’t want to hear about his righteous anger/condemnation towards sin and unbelievers or that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and eternal life!

And many Christian Churches of today only want to teach the “Feel Good” gospel; a gospel that is NON-BIBLICAL. Modern-day doctrines such as “Jesus loves you, so you don’t have to pray for forgiveness of sins”, “There’s no such thing as condemnation for sin”, “God wants you to be wealthy”, “God wants you to do what YOU want to do in life”, “One gets their salvation through works”, etc.

In the meantime, Christians overseas are losing their very LIVES for the written testimony of the true Word of God! (That should tell us something about where our church’s true *focus* should be: on the TRUE testimony of the Word of God…..not some Non-Biblical “World Friendly” interpretation of God!)

So people, don’t buy into the LIES of the world! Don’t believe that there are “many paths to eternal life or spiritual enlightenment” or that “there’s no such thing as sin”, or that “Jesus isn’t God” or that “God wants us to be wealthy, etc” or that “God doesn’t exist” and the like.

You have been forewarned! Jesus Christ has said in the last days that there would be MANY false gospels and false teachings……of churches that would only preach what their congregants were “itching to hear”……of churches who would only chase after people’s money and not people’s souls for God…….of people who would deny Jesus’s and/or Satan’s existence………of how churches/people in the last days would elevate mankind above God………..of preachers/etc. who would DENY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation, of churches that would DENY the concept of “sin” and the NEED for repentance!

The Churches of Today – Wicked

[I pray that ALL who teach OR follow a false gospel/doctrine/practice that is NOT true to Jesus Christ/God Almighty will have their eyes opened, repent, and come back to the Lord Jesus Christ and his TRUE doctrine, before it’s too late!]

There was most recently a user on YouTube, for example, who made a video a few months back asking what “moral behavior” was and truly seemed bothered by it and said that none of the Christians around her could give her a “true” answer as to what “moral behavior” is!

As Christians, we are supposed to shine the light of God into the world! We are supposed to speak the truth and nothing but the truth!

One last example I forgot to mention is some of the stuff in modern-day Christian bookstores. While there are some good Christ-centered books out there still, many of the shelves today are stocked with things that either talk about the creature (man/self) rather than the Creator (God), that preach false gospels such as “God wants you to be wealthy” and/or “It’s all about YOU, not God” OR that talk NOTHING about God/Jesus or the NEED for and ONLY way to Salvation through Jesus Christ & Jesus Christ, ALONE!

But what gets me the most are the BOOK COVERS! An author’s face oftentimes takes up the WHOLE ENTIRE FRONT OF THE BOOK COVER (as though the author is to be worshipped or something!) It’s truly sickening!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve also noticed this on Christian radio programs, too. They are oftentimes glorifying the creator (man) instead of the creator!

Instead of talking about all the good works the Lord Jesus Christ has done in a certain person’s life, the discussion often becomes “read so and so’s new book. for a small price, YOU can find out what it means to be close to God”. Well, let me tell you something. Jesus Christ doesn’t charge money for us to know him. His message is free. So should it be with all others. If ANY ministry asks for money, be leary. Be REAL leary. But if a ministry gives you free material and doesn’t ask for a single dime, they are most likely a God-fearing, God-loving ministry and more than likely have the right focus (being saving men’s souls, not raiding their pocketbook!)

Consequently, the “New Age” section of any bookstore you go to these days is just overflowing with materials, when, only a few years ago, there was only a small section of “New Age” books in most bookstores. Gone are the days when people use to write off as nonsense the New Age movement. Now, it’s become the order of the day. It’s now become to the point where, if you’re not pro-liberal, pro-gay marriage, pro-New Age philosophy, then you’re just too narrow-minded in today’s world, etc.

But this is NOT coincidence! For these very “things” were all prophesied in the bible long, long ago (before and even during the time of Jesus):

—————————————————————————–

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” [2 Timothy 4: 3-4]

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” [2 Timothy 3:13]

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” [2 Timothy 3:12]

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” [2 Thessalonians 2:3-4]

AND REMEMBER: THERE IS ONE WAY AND ***ONLY*** ONE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE AND TO OBTAIN SALVATION/FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND THAT IS FROM JESUS CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST, ALONE!!!!!

“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT. NO-ONE COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME” [JOHN 14:6]

“NOR IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER, FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED” [ACTS 4:12]

“HE WHO BELIEVES AND IS BAPTIZED WILL BE SAVED BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED” [MARK 16:16]
