The Religion That Makes Provision For Sin
Who Is God
Who Is Jesus
Dear reader, modern archaeology has uncovered and revealed many of the mysteries the bible speaks of causing many skeptics to come forth and state the bible to be an accurate document of writings which helps to silence the mouth of some whose voice spoke things they were unable to substantiate.
We also find that studies conducted by renown men of integrity have proven the New Testament to be the most well preserved accurate documents concerning the life and ministry of Jesus and his disciples.
His own brother James like some of his family members had doubts but after his resurrection, James became a believer and has been credited as being the Author of the book of James in the New Testament.
Not Just A Name
Listen dear reader, God could not make another Adam with God’s blood from the Earth that became under a curse but that is what the holiness of God demanded or man would be forever separated from his creator.
To be separated or isolated from our creator would be like a space craft leaving this planet and developing a malfunction in its guidance system which would cause it to be stranded in space unable to make its way back home to Earth.
The tragedy is that the men inside would never see their families again.
They would be isolated in space until their oxygen level dropped to low to sustain their life and then they would die.
The bible teaches that the wages of sin is death and that is what we got through the fall of Adam.
Because Adam ate the forbidden fruit, sin was passed upon the whole human race.
Because of sin, Adam and Eve were driven from the garden they were to see after and were forced to now live off of the Earth that now was placed under a curse.
Their sin caused the entire human race to be cut off and isolated from a holy God who hates sin and is perfect in all his ways.
In Adam, we could never have got back in fellowship with a God that is perfect in all his ways but not without hope for the Living God had a plan to rescue as many as possible from the rebellion caused by Satan.
He would send a deliverer for all man kind.
He would be born of a virgin and have God’s blood like Adam.
It was the hope and prayer of young Jewish virgins to be the one chosen to bear the promised Messiah who would bear the sin debt for all mankind.
In The Beginning
Mohammed and other great men who founded religions had to get in line with Abraham and the prophets but Jesus existed as the word before the line was formed.
The first book of John states that by him (Jesus The Word) God made the worlds.
Jesus did not come to found a religion but to teach us how to have a relationship with God.
There are sign in Italy that says “All roads lead to Rome”.
I am here to tell you that not all roads lead to heaven and all religions do not lead to God.
The Holy bible states that Jesus is the way to God. Jesus is not a way but the way.
The way to heaven is paved by his precious blood.
Jesus the I Am God fulfilled more than enough old testament prophecies that would stand up in any court of law concerning his entrance into this world to pay the sin debt for God's greatest creation which is man.
He who knew no sin became a curse for us.
He had to be arrested and tried as a common criminal.
He also had to be convicted and be executed as a criminal.
He willfully took our place and all sin was placed upon him at the cross of crucifixion.
Jesus is the only name that God will recognize.
God did not send him to another planet or another form of life but to and for the seed of Adam.
The scriptures teach that he who knew no sin was made sin for us that we might be called the righteousness of God in him.
Yes dear reader, God made the way of salvation plain and it left up to us to either accept his pardon for our sin or reject it.
If we neglect this wonderful plan that was made for us before the foundation of this world, we will be found standing before an angry God who at death will require the blood of his Son be placed on our head.
Let’s face it; there is no other religion that can take the guilt and stain of blood from a murder’s hands but Christianity. The scriptures teach that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all unrighteousness.
This is not a religion like all the others but a way of life maintaining a relationship with a wonderful God who desires a family.
Let's face it, Jesus was spoken of by the heathen in old Jewish writings as a man called Christus that practiced sorcery and was executed by Pilot testifying to the fact that he did live and performed great miracles.
We are commanded in his word to either accept him as being who he claims to be or die in our sins and be condemned.
He became our sin substitute or in other words, he died that horrible death in our place that the fellowship we lost with our perfect Creator through Adam might be restored through Christ.
He was not a good moral teacher but was seen of more than 500 people at one time in one place after his resurrection.
He was and became God's plan to redeem his creation back into fellowship with him.
When we accept Jesus as our savior, we are adopted into God’s family as heirs.
Jesus is the only name that God recognizes.
(Acts 4:12) There is no other name under heaven whereby men can be saved.
We can spit at him, mock him, and even reject him but the evidence of his birth,life, mission and resurrection has caused millions to receive hope, meaning, purpose and yes change come into their life that were before angry and without hope.
I am talking about bootleggers, drug dealers, and criminals changing their lifestyle by accepting him as Lord and Savior over their life.
Some of these have went on to become great men of God who allowed the Living God to leave his signature through them to us today.
After reading this, you may even want to whisper a prayer to the one God whom you are not sure exists and ask him to guide you to the truth.
Who knows, you might be one of the ones he will choose to use to turn this messed up society around.
