Real fast I want to talk about Basic Truth. What do you and I believe concerning Jesus, Bible and Prayer? I’m going to give you a very foundation to the Christian Faith, any true Christian Denomination would believe at least these few Core Values of the Christian Faith. In saying that, if your Church’s faith system doesn’t have these has a foundation of their structure, then they are not a Christian Based Faith, they are just another religion heading to hell.
- Salvation is a Gift
No one can earn their way to God. There is no list of rules that we can do to be saved. It’s impossible. The whole point of the Gospel is that the Good News is that Jesus came to live a perfect sinless life and died a death that he didn’t deserve, to take on the sins of the world, and overcome death. Romans 5:6, “Christ died for the Ungodly.” He didn’t die for the Godly, he didn’t die to make us Holy on Earth, He died because we are sinners in need of a Savor. Salvation is a gift. Romans 5:16, ”And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification.” The Bible Calls Salvation a FREE GIFT, therefore you CAN-NOT Earn it. You don’t earn something that is free. Free is Free.
2) The Bible is God’s Spoken Word
Have you ever prayed and prayed and prayed and felt like you hit a wall. You feel like God isn’t listening or speaking back to you? The Hebrews felt the same exact way when they were slaves in Egypt. Here the thing, God was speaking back to them and he was listening. He was answering their prayers even the silence. If they would of remember the promise that God made to their forefather Abram. Genesis 15:13, “Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain that your offspring will be sojourners in a land that is not theirs and will be servants there, and they will be afflicted for four hundred years.”. The Hebrew’s knew what God told their forefathers. They made the choice not to acknowledge the fact that God answered 100’s of years before. Why? I don’t have the answer. And then God answers their prayer again through Moses and the Hebrews rejected him. Why? I don’t know. I guess they had their own mindset of how God would answer their prayers and their way of the prayers being answered was not God’s way of the prayer being answered. So when we pray we need to align our prayers with God’s spoken Word and today we have a advantaged over the Hebrews, not only do we have the account of the old testament before Jesus, but we also have the letters written to the church’s in the first 30 years of the churches early history.
3) Jesus Is God
For some reason a-lot of christians recently starting thinking that Jesus and God are two very different sources. They claim that Jesus came from God, but is not God. This is a great lie from the bottom of hell. And Any preacher that preaches that Jesus is not God is on a highway to hell. When manuscripts got translated into what we today call the Bible, the Word for “God” or for “LORD” both has the same basic meaning, that’s why now days bibles say, “LORD God” or LORD GOD”. Those two terms mean that same exact thing. Now, that doesn’t explain much. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The “Word” is Jesus. The term “In the beginning” was the pull in the Jewish audience to read this letter, because they would automatically remember Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning”.
4) Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven
We all of heard the saying, “All roads lead to heaven”. That’s not true. All truth can’t be true, because if all truth was true, then what if my truth said your truth is a lie? Then your truth not true anymore. The Muslim people reject Jesus as the Only Way. Did you know that they have 100 different names for Allah, who they say is God. One name Allah is Al Haqq, it means “The Truth”. In John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus Claimed to Be God and the Only Way. It was his Own Statement. You want to hear something crazy? The God of the Hebrews and the Christian’s is the God of Heaven and Earth and all that is created in them, according to the views of who God is by both groups. But Allah is actually the roman moon god. They took one of the gods of the roman kingdom, and worship him as the true God. Don’t believe me, go look it up.
