Commentary By: Gordon King
Most people in the world, most religions in the world, believe that it is what we do for God that will save us, that what we do will get us to heaven. This is a lie from Satan! Remember who Satan really is, a fallen angel and the father of all lies and deception!
It is not what we can do for God, but it is all about what God has already done for us! Amen. God loves us so much, even as sinners, that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ as a propitiation for our sins, all of our sins!
All religions in the world, except for Christianity, believe that they must perform certain acts and do certain things in order to get to heaven. They believe that they must act certain ways and perform religious rituals to be found holy and righteous, when this is actually anything but the truth!
This may sound strange even to many believers who think that they must read the bible or go to church to be holy and righteous. Many who believe that they must help those in need to get to heaven, or that they must be good and love one another to get to heaven. None of these things will get us to heaven, not one!
There is only one way to get to heaven, only one way to be saved, a person must be born again! The only way to be born again is to repent of ones sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, that’s it, nothing more, nothing less!
We must be born by the blood of Jesus and baptized by His living water the Holy Spirit. When we are born again we receive the Holy Spirit of God, we are baptized by the Holy Spirit. When we are physically born we are born of blood and of water, yet this does not get us into heaven, we must be spiritually born by Jesus blood and of His water, living water.
It is not what we can do for God that will save us, it is all about God, it is about what God has done for us! How many other religions in the world can boast that?! None that I know of other than Christianity.
Our focus should not be on ourselves or what we do, nor should it be on other people and what they do or don’t do, it should always be on God Almighty! This is where so many people fall short, why so many choose not to follow Christ, their focus is on the wrong things, the things of this world.
Satan is a great deceiver, and he has deceived the masses into believing many lies and untruths. He has formed many world religions to distract the masses into believing lies, keeping them from the truth and leading them astray. He has told the world that there are many ways to heaven, that there are many Gods, and that we ourselves can become a god. He tells people that they are good and so they will get to heaven by their good works. All lies straight from the pit of Hell my friends!
In order to see God, in order to obtain the knowledge of the Lord, we must first put down our pride and arrogance, we must put down ourselves, we must humble ourselves and seek God. God opposes the proud and He gives grace to the humble.
Evil spirits will plant thoughts in our minds, thoughts which are ungodly and unholy, thoughts which may seem good but in fact are bad. They will distract us from the truth, they will lead us into temptations, and they will discourage us from seeking the Lord. It is a battle for our minds, a battle which seeks to destroy us from the inside.
And so it goes, most of the world is deceived by the lies of the evil one, distracted from the truth by unholy deceptions, led astray by worldly views and opinions, and deceived into believing that there are many ways to heaven, when in fact there is only one way!
Many shall follow the gate which is wide and the way which is broad which leads to destruction, but few will find the one and only true path, the narrow gate which leads to salvation!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
