Jesus Is The Way! The Truth And The Life! ~ Part 2


JESUS Is The WAY!

We have an amazing, wonderful extraordinary gift of a new birth that is freely given to us through Jesus Christ! “… inheritance that can NEVER perish, spoil, or fade – kept in Heaven for you, who through FAITH are shielded by God’s power…” I Peter. You can be sure of who you are in Jesus! Praise God!


Maybe you already know some things about God? But in order to further develop and strengthen your personal relationship with Him you must get to know Him better? As believers we must regularly begin to spend some time with Him in His Word and in prayer. His Word is our Spiritual Food! How long do you go without eating? Well! God does not want you ignorant of His ways. You must take the time and dine sumptuously on His spiritually nutritious Word! It is vitally crucial, you spend time with Him and invite His Holy Spirit in to open your spiritual eyes and mind. He is our Guide! You can invite Him into the messiness that always tries to pull you onto the broad road. He can free you of its clutches! As you embrace His Word His Word begins to become “ A lamp unto your feet and a Light unto your path…” Psalm 119.



God is speaking we must get better at listening! The world we live in is constantly moving and shifting away from what God has said is right! LOOK! Our country as well as around the world is experiencing and displaying all the signs of what happens when GOD becomes a secondary priority! Our United States of America's government was "SHUT DOWN!" President Obama and the Congress reached an impasse! This resulted in the loss of additional billions of dollars... The Supreme Court voted against the WORD of GOD and has ruled in favor of "same sex unions!" Oklahoma has decided that the "Ten Commandments" no longer belong in the court house No telling what's next? LORD HELP US!


America was founded upon godly principles. God has not changed! He does not sanction anything that goes against His principles. But He does welcome repentance! Has anyone ever thought what a miraculous turn around we would see all across the land? Just think what would happen if HIS principles were truly embraced right now! We would see the mercy of God manifest. Was this world not spoken into existence through Jesus Christ? There is no greater power or authority! Nor will there ever be! Repentance is key!



Jesus came in the flesh to point us back to “God’s Way!” God’s Way is the narrow way! Many do not like the idea of “The Narrow Way!” They will also quite possibly think of you as being narrow minded or judgmental if you are a believer. There is a big difference from knowing of God, than having an actual intimate day to day personal relationship with God! It is far better to be spiritually minded than go the way of the world! As a believer it is God’s Will and Way that we must now diligently seek above all else! "The Kingdom of God is at hand!"


The world at large generally wants to find their own way and do their own thing and now encourages Christians to do the same. Today it is sometimes cloaked under the guise of “unconditional love!” Acceptance is extended when you submit to what is expected. Many Christians tend to follow one another blindly. Group think is often encouraged. But it tends to bring forth a cultist mentality. They will go along with the group just to be accepted and or if they fear being rejected or labeled as disobedient. There is a tendency to respond or do what the group expects you to do because you are a member. Too many cliques... It is so very interesting to experience the many modes of worship all around the world. One must seek a spiritual balance in the midst of it all. There is a difference between uniformity and unity. God wants us to be on one accord according to the principles of His Word! It is when we are unified upon the HIS WORD true spiritual unity is present. "True worshipers worship the LORD In Spirit and in TRUTH!" Praise GOD for the FREEDOM we have in HIM! "It is better to obey GOD rather than man!" This way you will always have HIS abiding Inner PEACE!


Always remember you and God are the majority when you are walking in the Spirit!


When you hear that there are many ways or roads to God don’t be surprised? This is Not true! Or when someone says “you can do a lot of good things and this will get you to Heaven…” Not so! We are saved by God's Grace not works! There are many roads and highways leading to a large metropolis! But this is not true when it comes to JESUS!


Know what the Bible teaches us! The Word says: “I am the Way the TRUTH and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father except through ME. If you really knew Me you will know My Father as well…” John 14. “There is no other Name under Heaven by which we must be saved.” Acts 4. Jesus adorned Himself in sinless flesh and overcame sin for us! "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us ..." John 1. Even within this high tech society; JESUS CHRIST remains the only SUPREME PASS WORD of GOD by which we can enter Heaven!!! This is a very imperative and a significant foundational principle that will never change! JESUS is the only WAY!


Jesus Christ is the Head of HIS Church!


Yes you really can know without doubt that the Bible is the Word of God! No the Bible does not contradict itself. It is our “Life Manual” for safe traveling upon the Narrow Way! We can TRUST God’s Word through the FAITH He has instilled within us! Remember JESUS is the only pass WORD! When you Believe; Jesus can and will take you all the way to Heaven! no one can ever take the place of JESUS! Everything that you will ever need you can discover in HIM! Yes, you will suffer persecution! Yes, you will experience false teachers, worldly people and yes carnal Christians. This is why discernment is so very important. Self Control teaches us how to respond or not respond.


There are times when we are to just "BE STILL & KNOW!" Whenever the Word is going forth one should pray for the man or woman of God who has offered themselves up as his instrument! Praise God for sanctification. Pray for all who are present during worship this is a time for all who are present to be united in the LORD.


Yes, you will be misunderstood and perhaps called some of everything when you do not respond as others think. Seek direction from the abiding Holy Spirit! Know as a child of GOD the LORD is everywhere you are! There are some things that will not be understood on this side of Heaven! This is the very time when we must hold on to the TRUTH of Jesus Christ teachings and not be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine!


Know that satan is the father of lies! Some people will believe anything. You do not have to prove anything to anyone when you know that GOD knows exactly why you are responding or not.... It is always what GOD knows that matters most. The devil really is a liar... GOD is a SPIRIT of TRUTH! As a believer you must become committed to TRUTH! It is important to always pray for discernment!


You can have inner PEACE knowing assuredly Jesus has already prepared a place for you! If you are a believer you can be confident! Jesus is coming back for those of us who have not already gone on! God is able to protect us from ALL evil! We are to shun evil! It is important to be always aware of what is going on about you... To some nothing is sacred! God can and WILL protect you and not let you be ensnared by the entrapment that are set about you! Beneath the surface of everyday life is an ongoing constant power struggle of spiritual warfare. It is important to know satan’s many deceptive devices and tactics he also seeks to divide and conquer… We overcome evil with GOOD! “But the LORD is faithful and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one…” I Thessalonians 3.


We can look forward and beyond whatever is happening when our HOPE is in the Lord!


Once you get to know HIS WORD you can discover how so much of it has already come to past! Many prophecies in the Old Testament have already been fulfilled as well as in the New Testament. There are so many inspiring, enlightening and invigorating examples in the Bible! It is always important to solicit help of His Holy Spirit when you study His Word. It is not so much about how much you know and quote, but more important that you know, believe and then implement what you study and learn and apply to your own life!


You can be certain the Bible is true! The Bible is the inspired Word of God! Do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the Word of TRUTH. Avoid godless chatter…” II Timothy 2. There will always be those who want to argue but the Word of God can stand for itself! “For the WORD of GOD is living and Powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart! And there is no creature hidden from HIS sight, but ALL things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4. Jesus became the living Word in sinless flesh! He is alive! There is nothing else like the living WORD!!! God’s Word is where we receive our required spiritual food! You actually grow spiritually as you put into practice whatever your are learning.


God is Awesome! You can elect to choose to just continue on the way you have been going. But you will get the same results. You can listen to what others say about Jesus and the Word but you still have to get to know Him personally for yourself! His Holy Spirit will begin to write His laws upon your heart as you really begin to walk with Him! “I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be MY people…” Hebrews 8.


Your conscience will gradually become more and more sensitive to what is right and wrong as you grow spiritually! Your desire to live to please the Lord will grow as well. The Fruit of HIS Spirit will become more apparent in your life! This is a journey like no other; life really takes on a whole new meaning with purpose, promise and yes HOPE!


If you are at a point in your life and you are not sure what to do! If the enemy has positioned himself around you or your love ones... Or if it seems like your world is turning upside down or and there is just an empty void? God really can and will make all the difference in the world. When you truly have the LORD you never have to feel lonely because His presence is always evident to you. One must just diligently PRAY and pursue HIM with a sincere heart! He knows our hearts! He knows who is His! As I said before; this does not mean that everything will work out the way you want, when you want, or how you want! God is Not a genie! God does not act without purpose! When it is not clear what direction to go; Know the storm does not last forever! This too will pass! He can and will walk & talk you through... Keep waiting on the Lord He always has something better for us! Everything is under HIS control!


TRUST The LORD! Through JESUS CHRIST you WILL have THE VICTORY!


In His time He will work everything out in a way that is best for you! “But those that wait on the Lord shall RENEW their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40.


When Jesus becomes Lord of your life, as you get to really know Him your Faith is activated as you step out on it… Your doubts and fears decrease as you know and TRUST without doubt He is the only Sovereign God! They gradually diminish as your belief in His Word are strengthened and FAITH enhanced. Your awareness and discernment are sharpened! A powerful, formidable unshakable foundation built on Faith and Trust in Him is reinforced lifelong as you travel the narrow path accompanied by His Grace which is accompanied by His unmerited favor. Truly the Lord is a Refuge. He is a strong Tower and the righteous can run to HIM and be safe! The choice is always yours because He gives you the freedom to choose. TRULY with GOD the impossible becomes POSSIBLE!


Let me share with you who Jesus is and what He has done for us! This passage of Scripture merits deep contemplation and introspection there is much here to behold!For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of HIS Son He LOVES, in whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible GOD the firstborn of ALL creation. For by HIM ALL things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, ALL things were created by HIM and for HIM! He is before ALL things, and in HIM ALL things hold together. And He is the HEAD of the body, the CHURCH; He is the beginning and the firstborn from the dead, so that in everything He might have the Supremacy. For God was pleased to have ALL HIS fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself ALL things whether things on earth or in heaven, by making PEACE THROUGH HIS BLOOD HE SHED ON THE CROSS!” Colossians 1. Now that is POWERFUL! "Oh How I LOVE JESUS!"



Always keep this in mind about Jesus! Don’t limit Him to our little limited finite minds. God is Infinite! He is Sovereign! Please take some time and really meditate on the above scripture! Know that it is true! Never let anyone make you doubt who JESUS is! It is important to know that walking in the flesh hinders your journey and causes one to often take detours. The enemy attempts to derail you and put distractions in your life of all sorts... His Holy Spirit can get you back on the right track! The world beckons us daily to step out on to the broad road and utilize its many carnal inducements to satisfy the flesh; Rather than walk in the Spirit. As His ever growing children we are in constant need of the presence of His Holy Spirit which is our Spiritual Chaperon ever present to keep us from the plethora of temptations. Know this; God never tempts us! "No temptation has seized you which is common to man. And God is Faithful; He will not let you be tempted above what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it." I Corinthians 10.


The Word of God has cleansing Power!


We must pray and ask “Lord increase our FAITH !” This is why we say “The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me besides quiet waters, He restores my soul. He leads me in the path of righteousness for His namesake. Even though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I fear NO evil for you are with me…” Psalm 23. THANK YOU LORD!!!

DeBorrah,

When you hear that there are many ways or roads to God don’t be surprised? This is Not true! Or when someone says “you can do a lot of good things and this will get you to Heaven…” Not so! We are saved by Grace not works! There are many roads and highways leading to a large metropolis! But this is not true when it comes to JESUS! AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!

Many people confuse social moral codes with Christianity and buy into the worldly view that all roads lead to heaven which is FAR from the truth and a tragic misrepresentation of Christianity. Christianity adamantly maintains “goodness” only exist in God, can only be known through God and can only be expressed in human behavior through His character and grace alone. Paul made this clear when he told the Galatians that he died to the Law (morality) that he might live to God.

This is why, as you ALWAYS emphasize in your writings, the importance of Bible Study. We must stay in the Word of God. All glory to God!

Thank you for sharing this enlightening hub dear pastor and sister! It is my prayer that the truths reveal here touch every soul that reads it and quicken their spirit to further study.

Love peace and joy in Him who is the ONLY WAY, the ONLY TRUTH, the ONLY LIFE!

Forever His,

Excellent hub which presents relevant and significant insights which pertain to christian living. Though the christian life is difficult, but as we journey through the narrow road, God's presence is with us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. God is faithful to complete the work He started in us. Thank you for all these great reminders. Blessings to you and regards.

Rev Lady, Thank you for speaking the Truth! So many misinterpret the Word of God as far as Salvation! It is a Gift that only comes from GOD through Belief in Jesus Christ!

Your words of wisdom further expound upon the significant “goodness” of GOD! “Christianity adamantly maintains “goodness” only exist in God, can only be known through God and can only be expressed in human behavior through His character and grace alone. Paul made this clear when he told the Galatians that he died to the Law (morality) that he might live to God.” Amen & Amen! The Proverbs tells us “In all your getting get an understanding…”

Your works display your Faith… They do not save us they are our works of service to HIM….

“It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up, until we ALL reach unity in the FAITH and in the knowledge of the Son of GOD and become mature…” Ephesians 4.

It is really important that we impart, teach and preach the Word of God properly and encourage others to study the Word for themselves… The Holy Spirit is present to open our understanding…

Thank you as always my co laborer in the Lord’s vineyard; for sharing your spiritual insight here it has further served to enhance and open our understanding to the TRUTH of God’s Word! God Bless You!

In HIS, Love, Joy, Goodness, Peace & Blessings! Yes! JESUS Is the WAY! The TRUTH And The LIFE!

We really have a lot to be thankful for as you say “God will never leave nor forsake us!” How encouraging! It is because of this we can continue to press through whatever comes our way knowing that He is always with us!

"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof the world and them that dwell therein..." Psalm 24. We have everything that we will ever need in the Lord! It is important that we Celebrate life knowing that “JESUS is the WAY! The TRUTH and the LIFE! Thank you for stopping by to share your insight! In His Love, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

DeBorrah, this is the kind of preaching where you should be able to hear us saying "Amen!" all through it. It is so encouraging! So many are starving for spiritual truth, for something with substance their souls can grow on. More prayer, more study - necessary choices for those who want to grow closer to Him. He is awesome and we are not alone!

" One must just diligently PRAY and pursue Him with a sincere heart!" Amen! Peace

Hello

Thanks for this encouraging Hub. I read it in a sober mood because quite a few young people have been committing suicide recently. Some, join Chat rooms looking for people they can have a suicide pact with. I'm not going off Topic, but it just makes me think - if only they knew the Lord, they would realise there is a way past the Depression. A way to happiness and Joy. A way that gives strength in times of Adversity.

I sure hope many get to read this. Have a beautiful weekend. Love, Elena.

Jesus didn't make any bones about being the door and only way to God. I hate it when, in the spirit of being fair, I hear Christians try to justify another way to heaven. There is no other way. It is narrow-minded but true. You can't widen truth to sound better to anyone's ear. Praise God for making a way for us to go home.


al_masculine 6 years ago

No one cometh to the Father, except through me (Jesus). There is salvation in no one else, for there is no name under heaven given amongst men by which we must be saved 9Acts 4:12). WHat else isn't clearly stated here. JESUS is the only way, case closed.

Wonderful hub and God will bless you abundantly.

A M Werner, Thank You! So glad you are encouraged! We really do have a lot to be thankful for…

You are right about many “starving for spiritual truth!” I think it is important not to compromise the Lord’s Word… Yet we must attempt to impart it in a way that one can understand the intended “Message!” HIS HOLY SPIRIT is Awesome! He is our internal Teacher who opens up our understanding… When we know The Word we can have Peace! This is why it is good to daily feast upon His Word and encourage others to do so as well! His WORD is “ALIVE! ” There is always so much more to learn…. Yes we must sincerely diligently seek Him...

Thank You! For stopping by to share your words of encouragement and edification! To GOD Be the GLORY! In HIS Love, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

Chin Chin, Thank you! You are right there are many many religions. You have a right to subscribe to whatever you believe…. I realize that many do not agree with Christianity! However, I believe in ALL the WORD of GOD! I realize that this is not Always a popular stance but it is TRUE! The Bible teaches us there is no other way… to the Lord but through Jesus Christ.

There is so much that is going on in this world today that is contrary to the Word of God… As many shift to a supposed liberal worldly view you are right “many are confused!” One needs to just diligently seek the Lord above all else and He will reveal Himself… Thank you for stopping by to share your comments! We as Christians need to make it clear where we are in regards to the Lord and His plan for Salvation. Thank you for sharing, In His Love, Peace & Blessings!

Lady E, Your somber mood is quite understandable. Suicide is deep and leaves many unanswered questions. Yet it can be a reminder to those of us “Still Here!” That there is nothing more precious than life and Knowing JESUS as our personal SAVIOR!

It is sad that so many young people are searching in all the wrong places... You never know who you are really talking to in a chat room... We are living in some interesting times with all the technological advancements for communicating many are lonely and hurting more than ever...

How sad to make a pact with someone to take your life when your life is not yours to take... Lord Help! We must continue to LIFT UP the Name of JESUS!

Whatever is going on no matter how depressing taking one’s life is not the answer it leaves those alive often in a flux with doubts…

This is a time to spend time with the Lord; when the mood goes down focus on the good times you have experienced … Think on ALL the Lord has allowed in your life. Most of ALL that you truly KNOW having a relationship with Him makes all the difference in the world! It is so precious we want to share the Lord with others and let them how much He Loves them and is just waiting for them to reach out to Him!

Elena, Thank you for sharing! I am sure that you are an inspiration to many, you are an inspiration to me… May the Lord our Father encourage your heart today and let you know that you are precious to Him and there is nothing that goes on in your life that He is not aware of…. So WHATEVER things are true, WHATEVER things are lovely, WHATEVER things are…. Philippians 4. May He give you the Peace that surpasses the understanding of man and May HIS JOY fill your heart….! In HIS LOVE GOD BLESS YOU!

I am with you on this one! I think it is not good for Christians to compromise that "JESUS is the ONLY WAY!" The Word is quite clear!

As you stated; "There is no other way. It is narrow-minded but true. You can't widen truth to sound better to anyone's ear. Praise God for making a way for us to go home." Amen! & Amen!!

Great word, DeBorrah. So many don't make the effort to know their Heavenly Father and there is so much we can learn about Him through His Word. I am doing this right now with a group of ladies I lead. Looking at characteristics of God the Father and comparing His characteristics to an earthly father. So many have a hard time seeing God the Father as they compare them to their earthly father...whether good or bad. It is so good to see that whether our earthly fathers were good or bad, God our Father far exceeds in every way. His Word shows so many cahracteristics of Him in that way. Thanks for a great hub and keep up the good work!

Kristeen, Thank You! Excellent choice of Scriptures for your staff meeting... I think God is always speaking to us! I think He also uses us to encourage, one another to Stand on His Word! I pray this was helpful! I am sure that He will use you and allow His Light to shine through you as always... God Bless You!

In HIS Love,Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!
