Good morning all-
Why does it matter if we confess that Jesus is the only way to the Father? And how do we explain that Jesus, God the Father and the Holy Spirit are one? Many do not believe Jesus was the Son because it dispels the tales of old. The Jews were aware that a messiah was to come some day, was that a prophet or a Son?
Only during the time Jesus walked on the earth did people get to hear the true words from the man that was the Son of God and only a God so great could make a Holy Trinity. He is one God, and through the Son, we see the Father. Why? Because Jesus stood before man and asked for our forgiveness. He didn't let the evil of this earth sway Him, instead He chose His path and we are forever saved.
I recently was told that Christians are intolerant and on top of that I heard it from a twelve year old boy. Why do Christians believe they have all the answers? Now, I believe we must pray and love a woman that has had an abortion, a man that has fallen into sexual immorality and I definitely think we need to pray and love homosexual people. When I look at someone I don't see their sexual preference or their skin color, I only see the person. Don't you think that's what Jesus sees? Now that doesn't mean we won't have consequences, we all do. There isn't a person that walks on this earth that hasn't done something wrong without correction. There are war criminals from World War II that have been found and taken into jail. There are serial killers that continue to kill until one day, someone finds them and there are average every day people that get on the Internet, look at pornography, treat their spouses horribly and forget why they had children. NO ONE IS PERFECT!
So why do we judge and what give us the right to do evil against another? These are questions we must begin to explore but more importantly, we must confess that Jesus is love. We as humans can't hold a candle to the Almighty. We don't have the right to judge or we will be judged. We don't have the right to be silent either. ONE God for all eternity. We can't judge a Hindu or a Buddhist. We can't look at skin color and hate them because their skin isn't the same color and we can't walk around wishing we were wealthy and stay poor. We must find Jesus, talk about Jesus and have faith that Jesus loves every one of us and it's up to us to speak His love. If the veil is over the eyes of those that live differently or seek comfort from false Gods, well that's why we have free will but we must always speak love.
It's hard for me to forgive when I've been attacked but Christ has shown me lately His way. He forgives when we ask but He asks nothing in return. As humans we always want something in return. It's time we infuse our lives with less judgement and more love. Last Sunday we celebrated the sanctity of life. This wasn't so we could judge those that had abortions. It was so we could celebrate the healing nature of God and to realize that every life is significant. I have friends that have had abortions and I love them. You know why? Because what they went through has impacted their entire lives. We don't have to judge them because they are already judging themselves in secret behind closed doors. We need to lift them up and lift up those that are contemplating it and other things like suicide.
Women and men all over the world need to gather and for just one day proclaim that Jesus is the only way. If we truly want a revival then it's time we quit being scared, take on the shield of righteousness and proclaim that we are sinners and through Him we are redeemed. May God bless you and keep you my sisters and know wherever you are, I am praying. The fire is hot and it will get hotter but in the midst there is only one way, one truth, one life!
But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King. When he is angry, the earth trembles; the nations cannot endure his wrath. “Tell them this: ‘These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish from the earth and from under the heavens.’ ” But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses. Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. The images he makes are a fraud; they have no breath in them. They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish. He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including Israel, the people of his inheritance— the Lord Almighty is his name. (Jeremiah 10:10-16 NIV)
