Corrupted minds, religion versus relationship

Today there is Mass confusion occurring amongst So called professing believers and also unbelievers about what really saves you.

Walk up to 10 different people in 10 different churches and ask all of them how you are saved…and then go to the pastor of these churches and ask them the same question…and watch the different answers you will get!!!


So with all the different people saying different things…who has it right???

The Answer has been in the Bible the whole time!!!

Minds are CORRUPTED today all over the world…it’s time to get back to what the Bible really says on what saves you…The Spirit of Religion and Legalism are sweeping the Globe!!!
If you’re somebody that’s confused or you don’t understand how to be saved.. hang out with me for the next 20+ minutes to hear the UNCORRUPTED gospel message that saves!

This isn’t about religion this is about a relationship with Jesus Christ starting now! Religion says do Jesus Christ says done!!!

Today is the day of salvation! Repent and believe the gospel! The true gospel that saves!

The Deity of Jesus Christ

Why Call Him JEHOVAH Jesus?

When Jesus Christ returns in Judgment at Armageddon, He is described as being “clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13). One of Jesus’ many Names is The Word. “And The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth” (John 1:14). In John 1:1, we read more about The Word. “In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD.” [Read “The Word of GodNew Window, for an in-depth application of the Christian’s relationship with that One Person Whose “Name is called The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13).] Jesus Christ, as God, can be and is both Creator (i.e., “By Him all things consist” [Colossians 1:17]) and Created (i.e., “God was manifest in the flesh” [1Timothy 3:16]).

“It is significant that the LORD Jesus is so confident of His divinity that He would label Himself as the ‘Beginning of the Creation of God’. This identifies the LORD Jesus as ‘begotten of the Father in a manner inconceivable and inexpressible by men, before any creatures were in being’ (from John Gill’s comments on Colossians 1:15)— as unique as only God can be. 15 Who [Jesus] is the Image of the Invisible God, the Firstborn of Every Creature: 16 For by Him [Jesus] were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in Earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him’ (Colossians 1:15-16).” -excerpt from our “Commentary on the Book of RevelationNew Window, Chapter 3New Window (verse 14).

The LORD Jesus Himself proclaimed, “I and My Father are One. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him” (John 10:30-31). Why did the Jews want to kill Jesus? Because they did understand that the coming Christ, the Father’s Son, would be God Himself. “Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because He not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was His Father, making Himself EQUAL with God” (John 5:18).

Notice– 63 The high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell us whether Thou be the Christ, the Son of God. 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken BLASPHEMY; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard His BLASPHEMY. 66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death” (Matthew 26:63-66).

You see, blasphemy was a crime worthy of death. “He that blasphemeth the Name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the Name of the LORD, shall be put to death” (Leviticus 24:16). They said Jesus’ blasphemy was that He made Himself out to be God. “The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God” (John 19:7).

They would have had a good point, except for one thing– Jesus REALLY WAS their long-awaited Messiah. Jesus really was Christ the Anointed One. They agreed that The Son, when He finally did come, would be God Himself, but they just didn’t believe this “man” was The Son. “The Jews answered Him, saying, For a good work we stone Thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that Thou, being a man, makest thyself God” (John 10:33). Jesus “was in the World, and the World was made by Him, and the World knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not” (John 1:10-11).

“After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for He would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill Him” (John 7:1). And so they did. They killed the LORD Jesus for being exactly Who He said He was, the Son of God. “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be EQUAL with God” (Philippians 2:6). “Who both killed the LORD Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God” (1 Thessalonians 2:15).

Jesus Christ, The Word of God, prophesied of Himself in Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace”. Knowing that the “Child” is infallibly called “The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father”, you must either accept by faith the Truth of His Own Word, or deny that The Son can be “EQUAL” with The Father, thus calling Him a liar. Christians walk by faith. If He said it– believe it. Don’t question “how?”. He’s God– Immutable, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent.

“Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? he that hath seen Me HATH SEEN the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?… he that seeth Me seeth Him that sent Me” (John 14:9; John 12:45).

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ALL POWER is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth” (Matthew 28:18).

“Who being the brightness of His Glory, and the EXPRESS image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His Power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty On High” (Hebrews 1:3).

┬á ┬á ┬á ┬á ┬á ┬á C. H. Spurgeon called Him, “Jehovah Jesus.”

The Reason for Singing

‘The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in his love, He will joy over thee with singing’
(Zephaniah 3:17).

What a Word is this! Jehovah God in the center of His people in all the majesty of His power! This presence alone suffices to inspire us with peace and hope. Treasures of boundless might are stored in our Jehovah, and He dwells in His church; therefore may His people shout for joy.

We not only have His presence, but He is engaged upon His choice work of salvation. ‘He will save.’ He is always saving: He takes His name of Jesus from it. Let us not fear any danger, for He is mighty to save.

Nor is this all. He abides evermore the same, He saves, He finds rest in loving, He will not cease to love. His love gives Him joy. He even finds a theme for song in His beloved. This is exceedingly wonderful. When God wrought creation He did not sing but simply said, ‘It is very good’; but when He came to redemption, then the sacred Trinity felt a joy to be expressed in song. Think of it, and be astonished! Jehovah Jesus sings a marriage song over His chosen bride. She is to Him His love, His joy, His rest, His song. O LORD Jesus, by Thine immeasurable love to us teach us to love Thee, to rejoice in Thee, and to sing unto Thee our life-psalm.”

God Identifies Jesus as God

Jesus claims to Deity

Then Jesus came from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John for bad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Last week our topic was repentance; that is a topic that is not often talked about today. To repent means to turn away from your sin and to agree with God that you are a sinner in need of salvation.There is nothing mythical about it; the Holy Spirit of God simply opens our eyes to see ourselves as we truly are before the Holy Living God. We either agree with what He is showing us repentance, or we don’t. That is called rebellion.

Today we will look at the foundational topic of the Scriptures and of the salvation that is afforded us by God. The idea of who Jesus is. This week God has allowed me to share the gospel with two people. One of them trusted Jesus as Savior and the other is still thinking about it.
