ONE WAY SALVATION-THROUGH JESUS CHRIST ALONE APPOINTED BY
GOD AS THE ONLY SAVIOUR
Brothers and sisters, my eyes were opened, I did the only
thing ordained by God that would save my immortal soul from hell. I fell upon
the Rock, Jesus Christ and came as a helpless sinner, in faith believing that
He paid for my sins with His sinless shed blood, bodily death upon the cross,
burial and resurrection. Having received the eternal pardon of all my sins
through Jesus Christ and not by any works of righteousness that I have done,
the dreadful void, and terrible loneliness that had enveloped me for so long vanished,
and for the first time in my life through faith in Jesus Christ, I felt
spiritually whole, complete, fulfilled, full of hope and joy. Salvation brought
me peace with God, gone was the certainty He was angry at me. Now I was
accepted in the beloved.
King James Bible JUDE 1: 23
And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Christian Standard Bible
save others by snatching them from the fire; have mercy on others but with fear, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
Contemporary English Version
Rescue any who need to be saved, as you would rescue someone from a fire. Then with fear in your own hearts, have mercy on everyone who needs it. But hate even the clothes of those who have been made dirty by their filthy deeds.
My growth towards Christian maturity began to blossom. I
no longer needed people to see what I could suck out of them to fill that
bottomless hole that had been in my soul for way too long. Through Jesus Christ
I was filled with His love, and more than enough to give to others, out of love
for them and love for Him. I found a bible believing church, and they fully
embraced me with the profound love that is given to God’s people for one
another, and all men.
In my work and secular life, people started to tell me
that I seemed to have it “all together”, and wondered why. I am always glad to
tell them the sole truth for my confidence and assurance, that all who believe
in the sinless Son of God Jesus Christ have, through faith in Him. The haunting sense of feeling inferior to
other people left too, because the standard and boundaries of my identity are
set Rock solid in Jesus Christ forever, not in people anymore.
Some might ask why bother with telling people about false
gospels, I think the aforementioned is answer enough. We must continually
preach, teach and tell everyone that we can about the gospel of Jesus Christ,
as commanded by God, that all who believe in Him will be saved.
UNDERSTANDING WHAT ALL THESE FALSE RELIGIONS AND
DOCTRINES REPRESENT BIBLICALLY
The cacophony of what all these phony, fake,
religions, denominations, doctrines etc, represent are made perfectly clear and must be absolutely understood within the
gospel of Jesus Christ.

ONE WAY SALVATION-THROUGH JESUS CHRIST ALONE APPOINTED BY GOD AS THE ONLY SAVIOUR
Why, brothers and sisters are there so many false
doctrines about salvation?
The reason is because those who adhere to these false
doctrines totally ignore the everlasting truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Some do it out of ignorance, and/or have been
deceived. Then there is the hard core that know the truth but choose to pervert
the Bible for gain and are not truly Christians at all.
Nevertheless, there are those who when they hear the
truth will repent and turn away from these evil false doctrines to the gospel
of Jesus Christ in trust and faith. Those who will not repent and turn to God,
will die and go to hell to await the final judgement in the lake of fire.
FRUIT OF THE UNREPENTANT
1:28 - And even as they did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are
3:8 - Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these
also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
1:16 - They profess that they know God; but in works they
deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work
Dearly beloveds, not ALL of the believers tears, pleas, arguments, nor all the
truth of the Bible will be able to convict, convince, persuade, or compel the unrepentant into
repentance. Therefore, God rejects the
unrepentant, since they reject His will. He turns them over to do their own
evil will=reprobate minds.
Look, brothers and sisters, I know the fact that neither God and certainly not we ourselves
can persuade the unrepentant to repentance is troubling, hurtful to us. We do not want to
see anyone perish, and some of these unrepentant at large are in our families and social
networks. However, the unrepentant tend to harm the believers, it just goes
with their unrepentant DNA. The unrepentant have doomed themselves through
their own willful continual blasphemy.
NO ESCAPE FOR THE UNREPENTANT
Thess 1: 6 Seeing
it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that
trouble you; 7And to you who are troubled rest
with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty
angels, 8In flaming fire taking vengeance
on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus
Christ: 9Who shall be punished with
everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of
There are countless false doctrines arising and more false doctrines than can be put here, such as chrislam,
combining the gospel with other religions, etc, but let us start with these:
Salvation is not a free gift, and requires additional
work on the part of the recipient.
Salvation can be lost temporarily.
Salvation can be lost permanently.
After salvation, believers lose fellowship with God when
Fellowship with God is lost when Christians sin and
restored when they confess-cyclically.
Salvation requires keeping a short account by continual
confession of sins to avoid dying with unconfessed sin and be lost.
Salvation of itself is insufficient to be saved, therefore,
one must belong to a specific denomination, organization, institution or doctrine
to be saved.
Make no mistake, holy people, every doctrine of additions
needed for salvation apart from faith in the complete, final, finished,
inerrant eternal work of Jesus Christ are all lies - straight from the devil the father of lies.
Those who belong to these false religions etc. will be
offended. Quite frankly, I know I was when I met a true Christian, who told me
the truth that my church/doctrine were false and I was still unsaved and lost
because there is no salvation apart from faith in Jesus Christ alone, whom God
has appointed as the only Saviour for all who will believe.
Brethren, I was shocked, worried, rightfully afraid. I
searched the bible with a life or death vigor so that some of the pages were loosened because I was so desperate to see if my particular
denomination and doctrine could be validated by it as a means of salvation.
I also found no, zero, zilch, validation from the eternal truth of
scripture that validated any other denomination, organization, institution, man
made doctrine, religion etc. through which anyone could claim to be saved.
I realized from the truth of the Bible, that my salvation
based on a false church and its false doctrines was false and I was still unsaved and dead in
my sins. This explained to me the gut feeling that despite all my false church involvement, that I was not truly saved.
Dearly beloveds, I had a lot to lose in a worldly sense,
I virtually had the keys to my false church. I was highly regarded, and
regularly spoke from the pulpit by invitation of my false church leaders. The
whole church loved me and was ready to give me a paid position in the church. I
was greeted by the church with just as much favor as the false church leaders. Besides
all this, I had made many friendships dear to me. My life involved/revolved
around being a part of this false church.
What was I to do, since I found out the truth from the

angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

END NOTES-don’t seek revenge:
My brothers, my sisters, many of us are gratefully,
urgently praying for you and we do not know your names, but God always knows
you, and all of His people. Oh that we could embrace you walk with you, nevertheless, Jesus, our
Lord and Saviour is always with you and receiving our prayers that you would know, believe and
accept that God will avenge His people for what His enemies do to His people,
whether in this life or after before His great white throne. He that toucheth
you toucheth the apple of His eye. Vengeance belongs to God, He will surely
Anybody messing with God's people is messing with God and He takes it personally.
Zec 2:8 - For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the
glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth
you toucheth the apple of his eye.
Holy people do everything God allows in the times of
troubles coming through people. We can escape if necessary; we can call on any and all of the powers and authorities that
God has established to fight and punish evil doers, we can defend ourselves if
Fret not because of the enemy-don’t get mad, get glad.
God the Father indwells us equally with God the Son and God
the Holy Spirit to empower us to have the faith that pleases Him. faith is a
choice. God has made His home in you, in all of His people.The truth is all choices are made out of the inborn nature of men (this
includes women too). Therefore, the man or woman without the Spirit makes
choices to serve his flesh, never God.
We know, dearly beloveds, unsaved people can choose to do some very good
things. Nevertheless, any and every thing man or woman born with the dead
innate Adamic sin nature does without the Spirit is never to serve God, but to serve his or her own fleshly will in some
way shape or form: 1Co 1:18 - For
the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us
which are saved it is the power of God.
Foolishness: silliness, i.e. absurdity:—foolishness
2:14 - But the natural man receiveth not the things of the
Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned.
But you dearly beloveds, know and fully believe and understand that the sole
reason why you, me, all of us who belong to God can choose to be of good cheer,
will to do good, to love, have trust and faith in Jesus Christ is not of ourselves,
it is the free gift of God who has permanently given us a mind and heart like
His. We love Him, because He first loved us. Through faith in Him, God applied
the death of Jesus Christ to us and slew our old man or Adamic sin nature on
the cross of His Son, baptized us in Jesus’ sinless blood washing all of our
sins away, and raised us up alive in Jesus Christ as a new man or woman, a
totally new creation with a new nature, new redeemed conscience and the power
and will to love, trust, and obey Him.
Therefore, you me,
all of us can and are well able to be glad, to choose the good because through
Jesus Christ our Lord, we are made eternally righteous and good.
Be of good cheer: rest, quiet, calm assurance, courage, full of

Thank God for the great number of working servant leaders
involved in the life of the flock. They know the trials, persecutions, and
storms of all sizes happening to their flocks and to themselves as well. Praise
the Lord for their faithful shepherding in the person of Jesus Christ, guiding
their flocks to glorify God and leading the flock with wisdom, comfort, truth
and love through the many tough times in the body. They know they cannot tend the flock alone and are always helping the flock to grow in service to the body, and sound biblical doctrine.
Praise God. Oh, that God would open our spiritual eyes, brothers
and sisters, for we would see the multitudes of saints (G40 hagios) the body
general, that gratefully keep the switchboard to the throne of God in heaven
fully lit continuously by making all kinds of prayers for the holy people
everywhere. The Holy Spirit walking amongst the body helping all of our prayers
for one another and ourselves as well. Above all, that God would open our
spiritual eyes too to see the Son of God our Saviour, and Advocate making
intercessions before His Father God for us His people without ceasing. OPEN OUR EYES LORD!
Then there are those “white gloves” kinds of pastors who enjoy the pulpit more than the people,
live in ivory towers, and would never get down amongst the sheep, lest they
dirty their hands. These falsely preach that doubting God is good, and
persecution is only happening outside of America. If they admit it at all it is
minimized as trivial and unimportant.
Brothers and sisters, God knows that right here in
America, just as in the rest of the world, the flock of God is going through
very dangerous persecutions and trials of all kinds.
Some Christians are persecuted so much so that they know
not if they leave their homes whether they or their families will make it back
alive. Christian persecutions, some fiery have been going on and will go on all
over the world until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
There are cities where block after blocks of abandoned
homes stand, because the Christians had to run for their lives and to keep
their families safe. Don’t ever expect the secular media to tell the truth that
Christians are being killed, besieged with violence, harassment, intimidation,
and cruel treatment of all sorts right here in America.
Our trials, holy people, can come through people, situation,
circumstances, conditions etc. God allows them and determines the level and
degree of intensity of all of it, for His glory and our good.
God allows, knows, holy people that adversity distresses
many of us and takes us out of our comfort zones when we experience these
things. Surely this is one of the many BLESSINGS and advantages of suffering- to overcome being
dependent on things of themselves. We gain stability, when we believe, accept
that God alone- the only true source of eternal stability and unshakeable
comfort. Another BLESSING and advantage is that we submit to His will in troubles and obey
Him in it to show we truly love Him and belong to Him. Certainly, our
compassion and understanding will grow in our experiences to offer comfort,
assurances, and help to others going through the same things. There are a
multitude of BLESSINGS and things we learn through God in our trials, besides all of the aforementioned.
Praise God who has equipped every believer to overcome
and benefit from and through trials, to grow in faith, trust, to glorify him. Our comfort zone must be and in Jesus Christ
alone, despite our trials. Brothers and sisters, God is with each of us in
every adversity, the same as in times of peace. Jesus never promised us peace in
the world. What Jesus promised us is far better- PEACE IN HIM. Jhn 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in
me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the world. To be continued END NOTES.
