People should understand who Jesus is. They would claim to know and believe in Jesus, however they do have other gods, too.
John 14:6 Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and
the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
We come to the Father to ask anything in prayer, however instead of claiming the honor to Jesus, some would come to the Father through others ( who they claimed as mediator). The Bible is clear that our only mediator to the Father is through Jesus only.
The number 1 commandment of God in
Exodus 20 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
3 “You shall have no other gods before me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,
Honoring and bowing down to other gods is already breaking this very first commandment of God. Therefore carved images such as images of of man, nature or animals are all creations of God and not god themselves. They cannot do anything to help you come to the Father.They cannot even pray for you because these gods created by men are normally, dead people. A sinful man cannot become a mediator, because all men has sin and fall short of the glory of God. Therefore, the only mediator to the Father is Jesus who is sinless and is God Himself.
God does not share His glory to anything or anybody, but to Jesus only. WHY?
John 1:In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Therefore, the revelation of God to John is very clear that Jesus is the Word of God which is His power and which everything was made through.
God came down to earth in Jesus as man to save people. He gave His blood -the blood of a sinless and pure to cleanse us from sins and thus save us through believing and trusting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Jews used to offer blood of fine animals as offering to cleanse them from their sins. However, the blood of Jesus covers the whole humanity.
Jesus torn the very thick curtain in the temple upon His death which indicates that we can now come to the Father in His name. Hasn’t He said in
John 16:23-24, “Whatever you ask of the Father in my name, He will give it to you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
It’s only through Jesus that we are saved.
John 3: 1616 “For God so loved the world,9 that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.
Perish means death in eternal fire of hell, which nobody would like to be.All that perish are those who does not accept Jesus Christ as Lord and God.
Ephesians 2:8-9, For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Therefore good deeds or wok will not saved you. You may believe or perhaps the right term is you may know Jesus Christ, but does not make Him your God and Savior, because you have other gods, instead of Jesus only.
You may not be ready when Jesus comes back like a thief, that nobody knows when it would be.
You hear it now, please act on it now. Read your Bible and discover the Truth. Open your eyes, your ears, your heart where the spirit of God is.
