You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

 

What if you don't believe Jesus is the only way?

 

Jehovah's Witnesses

       In some form or another, this is yet another tactic used to bring people close to the right path, but far enough away to prevent the only road to salvation which is found by faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Most major world religions are ripped off the Bible. You can easily look up when any particular religion was started and where it came from, and the stories behind their beginning is enough to spot major problems with its inception, as they all directly oppose what the Bible says.  This includes Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and many other named splinter groups. Go learn how these religions started and apply these verses.

I John 4:1-3

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Leviticus 19:31

‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.

     All three examples given in this section began in this way, and they also began well past the completion of the Bible. They have all sought out divination and their founders have each made countless false prophecies you can look up using their own literature. It isn't hard to do. All you need to do, is go look for yourself. There is nothing wrong with the Bible, so why have they gone and changed it? 

 

       With the "Jehovah's Witnesses" I recommend going straight to the book of John. The entire book attests that Jesus is the son of God. You don't even have to go far, the very first verse will do. You will however, need to find an original Greek version, or use an interlinear online translator, like the one used below to verify this for yourself.

       The Jehovah's Witness's "New World Translation of Scriptures" states at the end of John 1:1, "The Word was A god". They have added the letter "a".  Not only does that change the entire meaning of the verse, but in addition to that, there isn't even the indefinite article "a" in the Greek language. It doesn't exist in stand alone form like it does in English. That was a bold move on their part.  In Greek it is spelled out as Alpha, and that would require an entirely different sentence phrasing in the original Greek language to achieve the result they created. The founders of the Jehovah's Witnesses have done this all throughout the Bible to omit Jesus from his divinity in the New World Translation of Scriptures. Check this for yourself. Go find a Bible in the original Greek, and someone who speaks Greek if you must.

       Lets read Isaiah 44:6 here: “This is what the Lord says—
   Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
   apart from me there is no God."

       With Revelation 2:8 you don't even need to go to the Greek in order to realize what the "Revelation of Jesus Christ is saying here. 

“To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who DIED and came to life again." 

       This doesn't mean all of your studies have been a waste of time in the least! Your faith in God is strong, so keep it that way. It just means you badly need to acknowledge you've been following a misguided sect with a warped and badly changed version of the Bible. Jesus is not only the Son of God, but also is God, and "All who call on him will be saved."  Romans 10:13

       This is just the tip of the iceberg of what Jehovah's witnesses typically refuse to inform themselves about. Here is a video that goes into most of it. If this concerns you, listen to the information and then examine it.  We all have to be our own judge. The good news is that you won't want to, because what the Bible tells us we have coming is way better news than what the watch tower tells you.

Mormons

       Mormons are more complicated. Many will say they do believe Jesus is our Savior and the son of God. However, there is certainly a very big difference between a Bible only Christian, and a Mormon belief pattern. There is also a definite beginning to "Mormonism", and it too began with divination, not mention well after God wrote Revelation 22:18.

       For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 

I John 4:1-3

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Leviticus 19:31

‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.

       The following link gets into it's very odd beginnings. Like all "religions", the best way to uproot them is to ask, "When did it start, and how?"

Islam 

       The Islamic belief... How can so many muslims agree that the angel Gabriel is the one who informed Mohammad of the Quran. They teach that people lost there way after the prophets of the Bible, and they needed to be set straight again with the Quran. These people somehow never bother to check what the angel Gabriel already said in the Bible, long before Mohammed got his supposed updated new version in a cave.  If the Quran was true, what their alleged Gabriel says completely contradicts what Gabriel says in the Bible.

       In the Bible not only do many places of the Old testament say how Jesus will arrive, and from where, but the angel Gabriel himself comes to say the Son of God is coming, and how. In the Quran, supposedly Gabriel says there is no son of God.  All the sudden the belief in the one and only thing that can save you, and what the Bible is all about was all wrong, and a new book is needed to be made hey? I don't think so... Isn't in a bit strange that all these counterfeits come from the same Bible and they all remove the divinity of Jesus?!

Once again, learn how these religions started and apply these verses.

I John 4:1-3

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Leviticus 19:31

‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.

     All three of these examples began in this way, and well past the completion of the Bible. They have all sought out divination and their founders have each made countless false prophecies you can look up using their own literature. It isn't hard to do, you just need to go look for yourself. There is nothing wrong with the Bible, why have they gone and changed it? 

25 Reasons Muhammad was a False Prophet! 8:38

 

"Where Did the Qur'an Come From?" 24:35

"Saved by Jesus Christ From Islam" 1:12:23

       Evidence for a truth, are counterfeits of the original. This is why it is important to see when books like the JW’s “New world translation of Scriptures”, “The Book of Mormon”, or “The Quran”, were written. If they came long after the Bible was written, why did they come at all, and what is different about them? If someone claims they aren’t different, then why were they even needed? According to: 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 

       “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

 

So, if we find something that is different, we’d clearly be going against God breathed scripture, wouldn’t we. 

 

Galatians 1:6-9

       I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

 

Revelation 22: 18-19

For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

       After reviewing these verses, consider what the Quran has achieved (Written about 600 years after the book of Revelation). It is far more sinister and terrifying, than the heinous crime of removing the truth of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

       When you study the end times verses of the Quran, and compare them to the end times events of the Bible, you will very quickly realize that the Quran has primed millions of Muslims to embrace the Antichrist character (who will be from the land of the Roman Empire). Among other things, it also says that “The beast that rises up from the sea”, is a “good beast”, even though according to the Bible it is clearly very bad.

The Jews

God's Chosen People

       Jewish people really are God's chosen people. That is stated all throughout the Bible in the new, and old testaments, which was written entirely by the Jews. However, unlike all the other counterfeit religions they weren't reading the wrong book, they just don't finish it. They rejected Jesus as the messiah and refuse to read the rest of it.  Just as it says in:

 

John 12:37-50

       "Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet:

“Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” (reference - Isaiah 53)

For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:

“He has blinded their eyes

and hardened their hearts,

so they can neither see with their eyes,

nor understand with their hearts,

nor turn—and I would heal them.”

"Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him. Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved human praise more than praise from God."

       Isaiah prophesied many things about Jesus, including his death. When Jesus came, he fulfilled all that the prophets said he would, except the prophecies to be fulfilled at the time of the end. Many Jews at that time, even among the leaders believed in him, but the Pharisees either loved their proud position too much to see, or they would not openly acknowledge their faith for the fear that they would lose their position and be banished.

 

       More Jewish people are taking the time to acknowledge the words of the prophets found in the Tanakh, and they're realizing how precise these prophecies are, as shown on the prophecy page. All that is needed is to keep reading and verify that the New Testament doesn't not disagree with with Tanakh, rather it is the fulfillment of all that was written to happen. There is nothing wrong with what we have been given, we do not need another book like the Talmud. Don't stray from the Word of God, have faith and believe it, as God's Chosen people. Jesus was the Messiah, and the prophets from the old covenant are completely and undeniably talking about the one and only Moshiach, Yahushua of Nazareth.

        This next image is why the Jews don't believe in Jesus, straight from the horse's mouth, or specifically Shraga Simmons.

       Even though all of the profits of the Tanakh prophesied many specific things that Jesus fulfilled with remarkable precision, including his death and exactly when, how he would die, and how he would arrive, as well as from where, and what family... One of the major reasons the Jews reject Jesus, is because they fail to see there would be separate visits of the same Messiah. The first time is with humility and affliction, and the second will be with a rod of Iron. We have the same problem with people today who fail to see the Lord's second coming also has two different events, as will be discussed on the prophecy page.

       Another reason Jews reject Christ as listed, is because he hasn't rebuilt the third temple yet. That mystery would be very easily solved if they ever read the New Testament, which the Jews themselves wrote. There will indeed be a third temple built here on Earth, but God certainly will not be in it. The Antichrist will however, and the Jews will actually realize that halfway through Daniel's final week of years. It is at that time, that they will need to run to the hills without stopping for anything, as forewarned Matthew 24:15-18

“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak."

      There is clearly a lot that the Jews aren't acknowledging, or even looking into. Just take a bit of time to see what the opposing argument is to any of those statements and you will see why. One thing mentioned almost seems to be a closed case - "How can Jesus be from king David if he was born of a virgin?" Upon considering this for the first time, one may read that and think that's a good point. As always, a deeper study will lead you to another amazing nugget of awesome information.  They haven't considered the lineage of Mary, or the way that the Greek specifies which family line is being spoken of between the mother's side, or the father's side. The article "The" preceding the family name is the father's lineage.  If the word "The" is not before the name, it belongs to the mother's side of the family. They might be shocked to learn that whether you follow Mary, or Jospeh's family lineage. Both are from the line of King David. This next link is an awesome must read for that explanation.

       The next videos are from Jewish people who have recognized what the prophets have said, and recognized the whole Bible was written by Jews. They have become Jewish Christians and started ministries of their own, reaching out with the whole truth for their people. These stories and what they have to share is absolutely amazing.  You can ask whatever questions you'd like to, and you can do so without the fear of condemnation. Their websites and staff are ready and waiting.

       God says mysterious things for amazing reasons. Did you know that in the original language of Hebrew, there exists a very strange word in the very first verse of the Bible that shows God’s authorship and Jesus’ divinity? He is outside of time, and declares the end from the beginning. What’s even more amazing, is that the specific death of Jesus is also found there, as seen in the video below.

 

       As all who don't believe tend to do, they look for ways to dismiss various points of faith. Many will try to tell you that the Aleph Tav is merely a direct object pointer. It is indeed used in many other places as such. However, the Aleph Tav is NOT at all merely a direct object pointer. It is even more amazing than that when you watch the following video.

      Remarkable nuggets of hidden wisdom are found throughout the Old Testament to be realized at a much later time. Though the prophets said how, and when, and from where "The Messiah" would come, nobody knew how Jesus' life would unfold 1,700 years before it happened. Yet God told his own story through the lives of Joseph, Abraham, Moses, as well as many other types, so that the people of the future can look back with amazement, and know that God has known the end from the beginning, and the Bible really is his word.

If you're Jewish, then good stay Jewish, and do the most Jewish thing you could ever do, and listen to the son's of Abraham, and the prophets of God.

The Camp of The Tabernacle

       In Numbers chapter 2, the numbers of the tribes, and the position of the 12 tribes of Judah are given. These twelve tribes made four groups and followed the strict instructions from God to camp directly to the North, East, West, and South. As a result of there being 4 camps, and instructions to make camp in one direction only, they would have been confined to adhere to the shape of the Tabernacle, that being a rectangle. If a camp restricted to the South began to venture East, or West, it could be debated that they were also East of the camp. 

       Do you know what happened when the Jews didn’t follow God’s directions regarding the tabernacle? It was strict and severe to the point of death if they didn’t obey the very clear instructions. When God said North, he meant North. As they learned to do for obvious reasons, the Jews would have wanted to abide to God's instructions as strictly as they could have. I would argue that they took no chances, for one. For two, even if those four groups took any variety of shape in their designated cardinal direction, according to those numbers, it still would have made a cross.

       Although the Bible doesn't say exactly what shape these camps held, we can safely say that there would be a strong incentive for the camp restricted to the South, to maintain a southern position in relationship to the Tabernacle. For that reason, it would be most likely that each group did indeed keep very close to their cardinal point that was assigned to them. As you can see below, according to the numbers, and their positions, that would have been quite the foreshadowing sight.

How to get ETERNAL LIFE 

according to the Bible

Believe in your heart Jesus is The Lord, and that God raised him from the dead. 

Declare it with your mouth, and you will be saved.

       If you believe Jesus is your savior, be thankful! We're going home to place where 1 Corinthians 2:9 happens!

       But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

       If you aren't quite sure Jesus is your savior, put your heart out on a limb. Nobody even needs to know you said it, God knows. It doesn't cost you anything, it is very easy, the reward is eternal life, just take a moment to believe,

 Jesus is who he said he is.

Even if nothing happened, you are still in the same place you were before. The risk vs. reward here is an easy decision. 

John 3: 12-21

       If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are worked in God.

Acts 11: 16-18

       Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?” When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”

Acts 19:1-5

While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”

They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?”

“John’s baptism,” they replied.

Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Romans 10:9-10

       If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9

        For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Ephesians 1:13-14

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Matthew 7:21

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”

What is the will of The Father?

John 6:39-40

“And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

If you want mercy, show mercy.
