Part 2 (of 3): Only Jesus Christ is the LORD God and the Savior of All People! HE IS YOURS, too, Friend.



And there is Salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved. 
(Acts 4:12)

~~~God's Truth~~~
It is vital to me, actually, it weighs greatly upon me to tell you this message:
The one and only Message of Truth is that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God- Who is the King of kings and the Lord of lords! It is He Who is the Creator of the universe and all that is in it: you, me, every thing that is alive- living and breathing- also, atoms, matter, and cells~~~ including the rocks and mountains, all plant life, all water that comes down and goes into all the streams, lakes, oceans, and on and on...Life! and matter, substance.  We would not have the emotions we have unless we have a God who wanted to experience love, intimacy, understanding, compassion, faithfulness, even anger and sadness and loss.  He felt these emotions long before we were ever created in His image.
The Lord God Almighty, the Trinity of our One God 
(the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit- Three Persons and also One Spirit)~~~

Our God is the Lord of us.  Jesus Christ (alone, only) is the Great I AM, the Way to the Father- the Way, singly, to Heaven and Life eternal!!

John 14:1-7 English Standard Version (ESV)

Jesus is speaking: 

I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life 

14 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord,we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

---Problems and Lies of This World... 

No guru, dharma, or other charlatan can save you!  No other religion, faith, or philosophy can bring you Redemption and Salvation with 
the One, True God, Jehovah, God Almighty.
I am quite tired, actually~ I am sad, angry, and heartbroken~ for people who refuse to accept Christ's offering of Salvation.  I can barely stand to think of my closest loved ones who could miss the mark- even though they have been given the Truth of Jesus Christ countless times, but I must press on for them and others I know and also strangers, in prayer and in boldness!  
I completely trust my Lord God because He is Holy, Good, Loving and Just.  His Character, Attributes, and Qualities are the antithesis, OPPOSITE of anything evil.  He made you, and He wants GOOD for you!!!
He will do absolutely everything in His power-
which is massive, unlimited, and has no boundaries- 
to bring a person to the Truth of Personal Salvation; 
however, God will not overstep a person's free will, which He also has given to us. 
I have heard people say, "the universe" brings it to me; that there are many paths to God; that every person's journey to God can be whatever that person wishes or desires, etc.  These human-based, as well as certainly devil-based distortions and untruths, abound and flourish in our world!  
These lies and half-truths, which is no truth whatsoever, are agendas of the devil ever since he, Satan, lied to Eve in the Garden of Paradise. 
The Lord Himself walked daily with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day!! 
Can you hardly comprehend that they had such an intimate and deep kind of loving fellowship with HIM, the One Who Sustained them, and the Lord of their lives? 
And yet, the human pair listened to the devil instead of their loving Maker.  
It was the most terrible of all moments- for them, their family, and down through history today with us.  How utterly sobering.  ALL of the madness, sickness, hatred, even petty issues of humanity began when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden 
Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil because they believed the devil, the serpent, that God was trying to keep something good from them- which was A Bold-Faced LIE.  God had told them they "would surely die," if they ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, but that they could eat fruit from every single other tree in the whole Garden!
The couple ate fruit from the forbidden tree. (Read Genesis, Chapters 1-3.)
(Oh, how many times have I wished that I do not know of the malevolent, ugly, even cruel and hateful ways of people that plague our world...How we can treat each other in selfish, petty, and sometimes vile manners and ways.  Yet, look at the love that a new mother and father have with the just-born child; see how a sister and brother laugh so knowingly, unselfishly and have a love and a bond that can never be broken...the list is endless how God has shown us His Love in His Son Jesus Christ, and we only know how to love because of what He, alone, has put into us long before He knit us in our mother's womb.)
I have come to believe, personally, that any one of us would have succumbed to the devil's crafty trickery and, in our humanity, we would have taken the deadly advice of Satan.
HOWEVER, God so loved us that He gave every woman, man and child Salvation. Each person has the choice to ACCEPT or to REJECT Christ...adults at the age of consent and understanding, which begins around the age of 12 years old. 
 Each person needs- there is no more important decision!- TO ACCEPT Salvation by telling God of his/her faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ; that He died and was resurrected in three days; and that we are truly sorry for our sins and mistakes and will go on living for the LORD and Savior Christ Jesus.
(+++See the Salvation Prayer toward the end of today's posting, please : )
The Lord God in the Garden of Eden caused Eve and Adam to leave the Garden.  
He SO LOVES us that if the two had stayed in sin, they would have eaten from the Tree of Life and lived in sin forever, probably decaying and being sick for eternity.  

GOD'S PLAN was that Jesus Christ His Son would come to Earth as The Little Babe to free us forever and ever- those of us who choose to BELIEVE in CHRIST, alone, no other gods.  

The Holy Bible is the true source of all inspired, God-filled writing about Jesus Christ and the Way for eternal life, including living in the Kingdom of God right now, continuing into forever- with Him!  The Bible is God's story with us, and everything in the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ, the Messiah, and in the New Testament tells how "Love Came Down, from Heaven" in the Person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, fully God and fully Man.  ...And much more- His birth, Life, Ministry on Earth, the Disciples, Jesus' Death and Resurrection, His Ascension to the Right-Hand of God, the Father, so that the Holy Spirit of God could come down to woo us to God and to live within, guiding, directing and comforting the New Believers in Christ.  Read about the First Apostles!!


No false person, "faith," religion, or church (coming in all forms and diversions) has the way to God, except through Jesus Christ and the Christian Church~ 
Matthew 16:13-20
13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him,“Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock[b] I will build my church, and the gates of hell[c] shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed[d] in heaven.” 20 Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.

The Bible says that there will be many false witnesses and...Sometimes people and groups that say, purport, spread widely and teach- sometimes these people are misinformed and have taken on beliefs, unwittingly, that are untrue, i.e., false. 
At other times! these groups, including some very pious, arrogant, and pridefully bad ministers~ derelicts of Christianity and wrongly teaching "churches"- spread the various forms of twisted half-truths- as in false- on the real Truth of God- ON PURPOSE.  In other words, people at times KNOW they are spreading counterfeit information and want to dupe people into believing that- they themselves or the person to whom they are speaking- are much more than a normal human being, which of course is complete deceit. 

We believers/disciples of Christ are fully redeemed when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and the Lord of our lives.  We have the Kingdom of God, but it will not be fully realized until we meet our LORD one day in the Rapture, or when we die from this Earthly life and pass on to Heaven in Glory for Life-everlasting!

As people/human beings, when each of us passes away, we will either go with Christ to Heaven forever, or if we have rejected Him, we will go to Hell- forever, also.  Both places are very real.  The Bible says that our lifetimes and what is happening here now is a shadow of Life Eternal.

Colossians 2:16-18 (NIV)
16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebrations or a Sabbath day.  17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. 18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you.  Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind.
+++Please be sure that you have told God, our Father, that you believe in His Son Jesus Christ; that you know the Son of God died on the cross for your sins, and that you have repented and are accepting Christ into your heart.  Tell the LORD that you want to walk with Jesus now and forever!

Dear Heavenly Father,
I know I have sinned against you.  No matter how awful my sins are, You can take them away from me forever and ever.  I have not kept the Ten Commandments all of my life. Jesus, you put it this way: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength, and then love others as you love yourself.  I want to turn away from my past.  I know you put it away from Yourself as far as the east is from the west and as deeply into the ocean where you remember that sin no more.  You completely forgive me, God!  I am so grateful and blessed to be your child!  I believe in Jesus Christ, that He died on the cross for me, arose after three days, stayed with the Disciples and others for 40 days, then He ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, where He intercedes for us!  Jesus left to take the Crown and to be the King of kings and Lord of Lords! Thank you for your undying Love for me, now and forever.  Help me stay with your Bible, find a good, solid, loving church that exemplifies Your Truth, not some candy-coated, feel-good, meaningless imitation.  I want your Truth and to be in fellowship with people who care and want to be your disciples. 
In Jesus' Name, Amen, So Be It!
