JESUS AS THE TRUTH

Long before the coming of Christ,ignorance reigned supreme in the world.Apparently there was nothing forming the basis on the ground of truth because even the prophet,who tried to make an impact were never regarded;therefore people could not really differentiate between right and wrong.
They were like sheeps without a shepherd,and followers without a leader.It is now obvious that God’s divine plan of sending his only beloved son to the world to save and redeem men, was due to the fact that he was displeased with their ways.
The prophet,Isaiah spokeabout the coming of Christ in the book of Isaiah 9:2-7:
“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.they lived in a land of shadows but now, light is shining on them.
You have given them great joy, Lord;you have made happy.
They rejoice in what you have done,and rejoice when they harvest their corn or when they divide captured wealth.
For you have broken the yoke that burden them and the rod that beat their shoulders.
You have defeated the army
and all their bloodstained clothing will be destroyed by fire.
Vs 6: A child is born to us!
And he will be our ruler.
He will be called wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,Eternal Father,Prince of peace.
Vs 7: His royal power will continue to grow. His kingdom will always be at peace.He will rule as king David’s successor, basing his power on *right* and *justice* from now till the end of time.
The Lord Almighty is determined to do all this”
From your understanding of the above^ isn’t apparent that Christ came into the world in order to save us from all kinds of oppression from the enemies?that he is the truth that has come to set men free from all kinds of slavery?
I do hope your answers would be yes.
In him and with him,there is Truth, there is Light and there is eternal life for all who will hear his word,believe in it and become doers of it.

  1. FORGIVENESS OF SINS? BY STEVE FINNELL

    Did God give mankind manifold options to have their sins forgiven?

    The birth of the church of Christ was on the Day of Pentecost. What occurred on that day?

    1.The apostle Peter preached Jesus, His death, His burial, and His resurrection. (Acts 2:22-35)
    2. Peter stated God had made Jesus both Lord and Christ and that they were responsible for Jesus being crucified.(Acts 2:36)
    3. The crowd asked Peter and the rest of the apostles what they should do. (Acts 2:37)

    What was Peter’s answer? Keep in mind these men had already believed that Jesus was Savior, Lord, and the Christ.

    Did Peter give them this list of choices?

    1. Did Peter say, “Repent and say the sinners prayer and you will have your sins forgiven and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit?”
    2. Did Peter say, “You do not have to do anything thing to be saved, you were saved the very moment you believed, your sins are forgiven?”
    3. Did Peter say, “Repent and be baptized because your sins have been forgiven?”
    4. Did Peter say, “You were added to the body of Christ the minute you believed, however, in order to join the local church you must be baptized in water?”
    5. Did Peter say, “Repent and be baptized as an example to the community?”
    6. Did Peter say,”It is written that men are saved by faith only, water baptism is a good work?”
    7. Did Peter say, “Water baptism is just an act of obedience, and it has nothing to do with forgiveness of your sins?”
    8. Did Peter say, “The thief on cross was not baptized and he was saved; therefore you can have your sins forgiven without being baptized?”
    9. Did Peter say, “You have to be baptized in order join a denominational church, however, you can get into heaven by faith only?”
    10. WHAT DID PETER SAY? Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NASB)

    The apostle Peter was not offering multiple ways to have sins forgiven.

    Faith: John 3:16
    Repentance: Acts 2:38
    Confession: Romans 10:9-10
    Water Baptism: Acts 2:38
    ALL ARE ESSENTIAL FOR SALVATION!
