Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.
The topic is: here is false Christ and here is another Jesus. Before we see who is false, let us see who is the true Jesus Christ. Then we will have no problem to detect the false Christ when we see him. So let us study about the true Jesus Christ.
He was God in Genesis Chapter one creating everything as God the Father was telling him to create. Throughout the OT Jesus Christ was God and he was in equal status with God the Father. He was Jehovah, the I Am, Almighty, and the Word. Then he, God the Word was made flesh. That is, he was made as a mere man, who was the lamb of God. That is, the 100% God was made into 100% man. As a mere man he lived a holy life until he died on the cross as the Lamb of God. It was the end of the man Jesus. But, he was raised from the dead, he was made Christ and Lord and he was declared as God. So, for the last 2000 years he is God, but not a man. That is, Jesus Christ was God throughout the OT. Then he was not God during his life as a man on earth. Then he was declared God and he will be God unto the everlasting future. However, when he was a man he remembered that he was with God before. So also, when he is God, he mediates between man and God since he was the man Christ Jesus. So, it is important for us to know that he was only a man, but not God-man, when he was living on earth as a man. This is the true Jesus Christ.
By the way, this is a tough subject. I have a few articles about this in my web site. I will give the link in my comment section. If you are interested you may look at them. Thank you.
I said that in Genesis 1, Jesus Christ was God. Let me show it to you. In Genesis 1:3,6,9,14,20,24&26 God the Father said to create all things one by one. In Genesis 1:4,7,10,16,21,25&27 God, who is Lord Jesus Christ, created them. It is also explained in the NT in John 1:3&10, Ephesians 3:9, Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:2, and Revelation 4:11. It says that God the Father created all things by Jesus Christ. Colossians 1:16 says that we are created for him. Revelation 4:11 says that we are created for his pleasure. So, it is important to know that God is not made for us, but we are made for God. Christians fail to realize this simple truth. It gives proper perspective between the creator and creation. Now, we know that Jesus Christ created us and he is our God. He has the position of dignity & honor. If we do not have this Jesus Christ, then we have a false Jesus Christ.
Soon after God created Adam and Eve he gave a commandment to them. If they do not obey the commandment it is sin. The wages of sin is death. The devil said to Eve, they will not die. The same thing is going on even now. The true Jesus Christ gave his commandments as his gospel in Matthew 28:20 & Mark 16:15 and asked his disciple to preach it to obey. But, false preachers preach another gospel. They preach just to believe and not to obey.
Now, let us see a false God. Let me quote a portion from the OT. Exodus 32:4 Aaron received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. Here, Aaron just made a golden calf. But they did not say let us worship the golden Calf. But they said this is God who brought us up from Egypt. So, the golden calf instantly became Lord Jehovah. The same thing is happening in the NT. Only one difference is, they do not make the false Jesus Christ in gold. All the rest is the same.
2 Timothy 4:3 says the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;This time has come. People could not endure the doctrine of Christ. The doctrine is his commandments given so that we may obtain the kingdom of God by obeying them. They are for our benefit. But people bring preachers who will make false Jesus Christ who will not give commandments. So preachers fabricate a Jesus Christ who had finished all the work of salvation by himself on the cross and left nothing for the people to do. Christians in every denomination has accepted this false Jesus Christ. They are happy since they do not have to obey God, but to believe preachers.
Let me quote a verse that Jesus said on the cross. John 19:30 when Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. Here the man Jesus Christ was announcing the end of his life as a man. But Satan took the sentence and interpreted as the work of salvation for all Christians is finished and has created entirely another Jesus Christ who did finish the work of Salvation on the cross. Most Christians worship this another Jesus, who is not real. The work of Jesus Christ is not at all finished. He is still working to turn away the sins and iniquities of his people. Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities. Instead of preaching this true Jesus Christ, they preach a legend of the man Jesus and say that he has finished the work of their salvation on the cross. But it is not true. However, People like this easy gospel and accept the false Jesus Christ.
Acts 13:32-33 & Psalm 2:7 say that God raised Jesus from death and declared him as his begotten son. Hebrews 1:8-9 say God declared Jesus as God. Acts 2:36 says he was declared as Lord and Christ. Philippians 2:10 says that every knee should bow to him. So, for the last 2000 years Jesus Christ is God and Lord to the whole world, even to hell and heaven. We think that he is God for Christians only. No, he is God for the whole world, Jews and Gentiles, good and bad, Christian and non-Christian. In the last day God divides the people not as Christian and non-Christian but as who did good and who did bad. The true Jesus Christ will reward those who did good and he will punish those who did evil. 1 Peter 1:17 if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Jesus Christ says in Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. But false workers, who preach another Jesus, beg people and lead them into fake salvation. Let me say what the true Jesus Christ says one more time. Listen. This is the last final speaking of the true Jesus Christ from the Bible. Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (he has asked them to repent, but they were playing games and did not care. Now Jesus Christ did not care. Don't wait until it happens. It is dangerous) 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man (not only to the good, but also to the bad) according as his work shall be. (preachers say that we are not saved by works, but Jesus Christ says according as his work shall be, are the preachers right? No, Jesus Christ is right) 13 (He identify himself) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (Do his commandments, that is how you enter heaven) 15 For without are dogs, (without means outside of heaven, dogs cannot enter there, dogs are backsliders, they had vomited their sins once, later they ate them again) and sorcerers, (those who worship false Christs) and whoremongers, and murderers (people of hatred), and idolaters (covetous people), and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie (that is they who preach false Jesus Christs), these men will not enter heaven. This is the final statement of Jesus Christ. It is so easy to understand. If you obey his commandments, you will enter heaven. If you commit sin you will not enter heaven. So, Quit sin. Obey God. If you are a Christian and believe all about Jesus Christ, it does not matter. Your belief will not save you unless you obey what he says. Do you obey his commandments? Yes! Then you will enter heaven.
The real Jesus Christ never was politically correct. He got angry and whipped people in the temple. He called the so called servants of God as sons of the devil. He pronounced woe unto them. He called people fools many times. He did not behave civilized. But, if we call the devil as the devil, many godly men get upset. Why? They do not know the true Jesus. They have a form of godliness that is a facade. Inside they have another Jesus, who is civilized. If we have the true Jesus, we will not seek to please men. Apostle Paul says in Gal 1:10 do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But, if you are the servant of Christ, evil men will attack you.
Let me give an example that happened to me a few days ago. Here is a guy who has a site called fractalfires on youtube. He added another site BeholdTheSonOfGod. In this site, he says the gifts of the Holy Ghost as demonic. We started arguments and it got tough. I told him that he is a blasphemer and his destiny will be the lake of fire for what he was doing. I have quoted where Jesus Christ called the Pharisees as sons of the devil and I told him he is also one of them. He blocked me from answering his comments and then he used filthy obscene vulgar dirty profane curse that even Satan may be ashamed to say. He used them against my mother, my wife and my daughter as if he doesn't have a mother, wife or daughter. A person cannot use such filthy language unless he is possessed by low level demons that live in pigs. On top of it this guy acts insane. The tragedy is that this man claims that he is guided by the Holy Spirit, he is a holy servant of Jesus Christ and he is doing the will of God. If there are more foul mouthed indecent men call themselves as servants of God, Jesus Christ has nothing to do with such filthy vile men. They worship demons. But they say, they serve Jesus Christ and God the Father. But, God will punish them in the lake of fire.
The true Jesus Christ forgives sin and says not to sin again. But the false Jesus Christ of the preachers will not tell sinners to stop sinning but promise them that he will keep on forgiving their sins.
The true Jesus Christ says that those who do evil hate the light and they will not come to God. And so they are condemned already. He pronounced woe unto them. But, another Jesus loves the evil sinners.
The true Jesus says to let the blind men alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. But another Jesus tells the brethren to pray for their salvation.
The true Jesus Christ will make people holy and perfect. But another Jesus Christ of the preachers says that nobody can become perfect.
The true Jesus Christ preaches wrath of God for disobedient sinning people. Another Jesus of the preachers loves the sinning people with unconditional love and he promises them rewards in heaven.
A preacher, who appears to be a spiritual decent serious preacher, recently saying in many of his messages that it is enough that we studied the Bible and it is time for us go to Jesus Christ to hear from him as if Jesus Christ has nothing to do with the Bible. It seems that he is in the process of introducing a Jesus Christ who is not from the Bible. He says to go to him on our knees in prayer and he will talk to us. He says many things right, but introducing another Jesus Christ who is not from the Bible is weird. It is very dangerous even though it sounds spiritual. Then he says that Jesus Christ is speaking to him all the time and he always has close fellowship with Jesus Christ. That is, he is already into this false Jesus Christ and he is trying to hook this false God to his followers. Is he trying to start a cult? He tells us to put the Bible aside, which is the light of our path. So, without it we can be easily lead astray. The second danger is that he introduce us to a Jesus Christ who is readily available and who will always talk to us. How many times God talked to Abraham? How many times God talked to David? God spoke to Moses often. Even Moses could not say what this man says. He is introducing another spirit other than the spirit of God. Be careful with such men. They have another false Jesus Christ, who could be a cheap demon spirit.
There are hundreds of ways of deception. Jesus Christ says that wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many will go there: In every deception there is false Jesus Christ. Satan always deceives people by using his name. It is a tragedy. But what can we do? If you know the strait gate and the true Jesus Christ, then the devil cannot deceive you. The true Jesus Christ is the Jesus Christ of the Bible. Nobody can separate his word from Jesus Christ. First, look for the commandments of Jesus Christ from the Bible. Start obeying them. If you do it, by the time you complete the first four books of the NT, you will become God's workmanship and a vessel unto honour for God. Then, Satan cannot deceive you.
If not, even if you claim that Jesus Christ died for you personally, you will not be saved, since he died for the whole world personally. Even you have Jesus Christ as an advocate for your sins with God the Father, you will not be saved since he is the advocate with God the Father for all sinners of the world. If Jesus Christ is the propitiation for your sins, you will not be saved because he is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. He is God of the whole world. The next question should be, then how the sacrifice of the Lamb of God will benefit sinners? This is how. 1 John 1:7 if we walk in the light, as he is in the light- the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. So, walk in the light as Jesus Christ walks in the light. Believe what Jesus Christ says and obey him as he is your Lord and master. Then, he will cleanse you from all sins. Romans 3:25 says that his blood is shed for the remission of sins that are past. That is, as you are walking in light as he is in the light, there is no sin in the light, so you will not sin anymore, and then Jesus Christ forgives all your past sins, now you are saved by the true Jesus Christ. If this is not done, and they just claim that they are saved, they are just ignorant fakes. There are hundreds of them in every church. They are just religious. They are like Pharisees.
If you are sincere and honest in your heart, you will know the true Jesus Christ. If you know him, you will love him. If you love him, his commandments will not be grievous to you. Then you will obey his commandments. Then you will inherit his kingdom. Then, you will be a joint-heir with the true Jesus Christ. Will you go for this?
Thank you for listening. God bless you.
