My beloved brethren, it is my pleasure to bring you the Gospel of Christ, the hidden place of God’s Power.
I would to God that you will both embrace this truth and exercise yourself in its entirety and reality as your whole life most certainly depends on it.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I AM the way, THE TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
NOW, let’s take a closer look at the salvation message that Apostle Peter had been sent to preach to Cornelius.
(Please kindly take time to read it in Acts chapter 10:34-43.)
That portion of the Bible, no doubt, is a summary of Peter’s sermon, picking out the highlights, but we can see at once that Peter simply spoke about Jesus
This is very unlike some of the “modern era ministers” who have replaced the revelation of Jesus Christ with razzmatazz.
Politics, national relationships and social issues which agitated the people of those times were not mentioned.
PETER PREACHED JESUS.
He simply said that JESUS was LORD OF ALL, which was – and still is – the TRUE ROOT of every matter.
Romans 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
14:9 For to this end Christ both DIED, and ROSE, and REVIVED, that he might be LORD BOTH OF THE DEAD AND LIVING.
The business of comparative religions is really the business of contrast. There is little to dovetail.
For example, the founders of Islam and Buddhism professed to be no more than channels. Mohammed talked of his vision;
Buddha talked of his enlightenment.
JESUS DID NEITHER.
He never claimed to be a prophet but what they said or claimed him to be.
John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me (Jesus): for he wrote of me.
Luke 24:44 And He (Jesus) said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Notice that everything written in the Law, Prophets and Psalms were concerning Jesus, not concerning those who wrote them.
Christian truth is not a series of statements or a code of ethics or a program of religious observances.
Romans 10:3 For they bring ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Jesus is The Truth.
Christianity IS Christ.
There is no need for us to attack other religion. There is no need to attack anybody’s way of life, whether they live in the west, east, north or south.
Colossians 4:5AMP: Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity.
All we need do is simply let people see for themselves what Jesus really is by explaining the Gospel to them in simple terms. Eph 3:8-9
As the Bible puts it, we need to encourage them to “taste and see that the LORD is good”….. (Ps. 34:8).
JESUS ALWAYS WINS THE DAY.
People can say nothing against Him.
2 Corinthians 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
Nobody else saves, heals, expels devils and fills people with joy. Only Jesus!
Mark 7:37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, he hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
And nobody can know what He is like until they meet Him.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
GOD BLESS YOU BY ALL MEANS IN JESUS NAME!
