Things God Don't Know: No. 4
God Doesn't Know Any Other Way To Salvation Than By The Blood Of Jesus
God Doesn’t Know Any Other Way To Salvation Than By The Blood Of Jesus – He doesn’t know any other way to be saved. Romans tells us “the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ”, James tells us “we are saved by grace”…it is a gift of God. When someone brings you a birthday gift you don’t ask “How much do I owe?” You simply accept it with a generous thank you. God simplified salvation to a point where all we have to do is accept the gift. Jesus did the hard part. He willingly paid the price for the gift. He suffered on the cross so that all we have to do is believe and accept God’s gift. Jesus makes it very plain in the Gospel of John – “I am the way, the truth and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father except through Me.” Paul confirmed it in Acts 4:12, “There is salvation in NO ONE ELSE, for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.” There’s only one way to be saved and that’s through the blood of Jesus; not works, not approval from the pope, not by proxy, not even by religion. Being a Baptist won’t get you through heaven’s gates. I feel sorry for those who believe just because they fill a pew and live a good life they are going to heaven. They are missing the point. Only the blood of Jesus will get you there.
