Legend Jesus is Another Jesus who gives fake salvation



"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Legend Jesus is Another Jesus who gives fake salvation.

In the beginning, Jesus was God the Word (John 1:1). Later, Jesus became a man (John 1:14). After that, upon his resurrection from the dead and subsequent ascension, he was anointed once again as God (Hebrews 1:8 and 9). During the period of time when Jesus lived as a man, he lived only as a man, and not as God. These are the truth of the Bible. If we manipulate this Jesus beyond what the Bible says and make a different Jesus, the Bible says that we preach another Jesus and false Christ. "2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached,... Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." So, just because we use the name Jesus and Christ, it does not mean that we worship true God. We may very well be worshiping another Jesus and false Christ, if we manipulate the name Jesus Christ to fit our fantasy, belief, expectation, etc,. Further, the Bible, the word of God, says that the devil will sit in our worship places, showing himself as Jesus Christ and will receive our worship. So, just because we are going to church and worship Jesus Christ, it will not give us guarantee that we are worshiping the true Jesus Christ. "2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." So, we have to be careful always to make sure whether do we worship the same Jesus Christ of the Bible, which will fit the description that the Bible portrays and reject all other Jesus Christs, who is a little warped to fit our fantasy, our fancies and our desires.

1. 'God the Word' became Jesus, the Seed of a Virgin

It is vitally important that we know and understand the truth of the wholesome word of God. But, some intentionally misinterpret the birth and the life of Jesus as a Man with ulterior motives. So, please look at this link for the details about the birth and life of Jesus Christ. But, noe Jesus Christ is God. And we have to understand them as the Bible teaches, but not from story tellers.

Links are: "Jesus Christ", "Jesus of Nazareth", "Jesus Christ is God".

2. If your Salvation is fake, Your Jesus Christ is another Jesus or false Christ

The word "Saved" is used in our churches. We use the name Jesus Christ to be the Savior. The subtle twist or deception here can be avoided if we are careful. The principle is that if the "saved" is the real one, the provider of this "saved" is also the real one. But if the "saved" is a fake, then the one who provide the fake product is a deceiver, and in this case it is Jesus Christ. Let us see what "saved" means. Save a person is to make a person escape from some kind of danger or calamity; in this case saved is from sin. So, it is to make a person escape from sin or sinning. In churches, they announce that Jesus Christ has saved a person. But there will be no difference in the sinning of the person at all. But they will try to mean that the person is saved from hell or he will go to heaven. But, the scripture does not say any of this. Please refer these links for true Salvation according to Bible.

Links are: "Salvation", "Saved".

3. The Legend of the Man Jesus is not God, but it is the creation of Christians

Jesus was a man approved of God; a ‘man approved of God’ is not God. Acts 2:22 says: "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God." Jesus of Nazareth refers to himself, in this verse, as a man. Whatever refers Jesus of Nazareth as God, is another Jesus.

Numbers 23:19 says: "God is not a man …" 1 Samuel 15:29 says: "And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man." Hosea 11:9 says: "I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man;". So, God is not a man and a man is not God. According to the word of God, therefore, no man can be God. Jesus of Nazareth was a man; therefore, according to these verses, Jesus could not be (and therefore was not) God.

In Exodus 33:20, God told Moses: "Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live." John 1:18 says: "No man hath seen God at any time;" 1 Timothy 1:17 says: "Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God," 1 Timothy 6:16 says: "Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen." Clearly, God is immortal, but Jesus of Nazareth was mortal. God is invisible, while Jesus of Nazareth was visible. No man can see God, neither can man look upon even the light that God dwells in; but Jesus of Nazareth could be seen. So, Jesus of Nazareth lived as just a man, not as God.

Many religions worship extraordinary men as their gods. They are legends, but not God. Christians also, worship the legend of the Man Jesus as God, but not the resurrected Jesus, who is made as our Lord and Christ, who is anointed as God the Son, who is in the Omni-Power Spirit God, and who is the God Almighty. But Christians are more comfortable with the exonerated legend Man Jesus Christ, who can be called the friend of sinners, etc,. If your Jesus Christ is the Almighty God in the Spirit, then he is the true Jesus Christ. If not, he is counterfeit and another false god. 

4. If Christians worship any of these, they worship the devil as God

The true God is the one who created the universe with everything in it. He was existing before the very beginning. If we miss this definition and looking for a person, who has some special features, to be your god then you may find many such persons as gods. Men made-up many gods.

Most people in the world belong to some kind of religion or belief. They have many gods or something which is equivalent to a god. Hindus have many kinds of gods. Some worship a hero of a play, drama, novel, etc. Some worship kings, great warriors, handsome men, prettiest women, wisest persons, etc. Some worship their close kindred who passed away. Some worship spirits, idols, stones, fire, water, earth, sun, moon, etc. Many of them worship those who they fear, like cobra, leopard, elephant, etc and some worship cows, oxen, monkey etc since they provide food and help cultivation. Many worship demons, devils and Lucifer, who is Satan, even by giving them different names. In this manner there are many gods in many religions. In Judaism there is only one God. Even though there are many names used for God, the familiar name is Jehovah. Islam worship only one god. They claim that they worship the God of Abraham. But that is not true. Their god is Allah and not Jehovah. God of Abraham is Almighty God Jehovah. Allah has purposed to destroy the worshipers of Jehovah. There are many false gods which are made by men. People worship demonic spirits. Lucifer was the prime angel of God and was rejected by God because of his iniquity. He is known as the old serpent, the devil and Satan. He shows himself as God, even to Christians, in order to be worshiped. He comes as angel of light with the power that was given to him and deceive even Christians. Every religion and most Christians worship Satan, who is in disguise as God. "2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." But godly people, who love God with their obedience, will not be deceived. Jews and Christians worship the same God. But Christians worship Jehovah in his full entirety with understanding, where as Jews worship the form of Jehovah. That is, Christians worship one Spirit God in three persons, who has created the universe, and who will destroy the present universe and will create new earth with new heavens.

5. What is 'Jesus of Nazareth' to us?

We have studied that Jesus was, in the beginning, God the Word. He remained God the Word until he became flesh, according to John 1:14 says: "the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...." As flesh, Jesus lived as a man and was approved of God according to Acts 2:22 says: "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:" After his death and subsequent resurrection and ascension, Jesus again became God.

Hindus and such other 'religious' people worship the Legend of their dead heroes as God. Many Christians also worship the Legend of the man Jesus of Nazareth as God, in a fashion similar to that of Hindus, heathens and non-believers. This is similar to idol worship (even though they don't think it is), because they incorrectly consider Jesus in the flesh to be God. That 'God' (the Legend) is not real, because Jesus is no longer in the flesh; he is now anointed as God by God the Father and the Holy Ghost. Worshiping the projected image of the man Jesus, is inconsistent with scripture, and is based on sentimental feelings and traditional teachings; i.e., the opinions of men that are falsely substituted for scripture. Satan and his demonic spirits are behind such worship of the fleshly man who Jesus was, rather than the living God who Jesus is today. That Jesus is just a Legend, but not real person.  He is another Jesus as in 2 Corinthians 11:4 says: "For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." The Man Jesus Christ (Legend) never did exist. True Christians will not worship the glorified legend of the human Jesus as God.

6. Who is 'Lord Jesus Christ' to us now?

The true Jesus who is resurrected and ascended to heaven, is Lord, he is God, he is our master, and he is Spirit. He cannot be seen by mankind, because he is God with all the glory and reverence accorded thereto. God will not grant our spur-of-the-moment prayer requests, nor will he obey us when we call on him in desperation, fear, or anger. Contrast the awesome presence of God with preachers who issue commands to Jesus Christ and tell their audiences that Jesus will do what they say. They pretend God serves them! The God they call on and command is counterfeit!

Hebrews 1 says: "8) But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9) Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." God the Word was God, then he became flesh and lived as man. When he was a man, he loved righteousness and hated iniquity. Therefore, he has become God now. This God, the resurrected Jesus Christ, who is in Spirit is with us even now, turning those who are born of the Spirit from their sin and iniquities as in Acts 3:26 says: "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." This true Lord Jesus Christ works within his people to turn them away from sinning. Matthew 1:21 says: "... and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." 1 John 4:9 says: "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." Now, Jesus is God. He is Omni-Power Spirit. He is sent by God the Father, and he is in the world now. As in Matthew 1:21, he may save you from your sins, as in Acts 3:26, he may turn you away from your sins and iniquities and as in 1 John 4:9, you can live through him, that is, you can live your life through his life in true holiness. Romans 5:10 says: "… we shall be saved by his life." Jesus Christ has the power. You shall be saved by the power of his life. Repent of your sins and unbelief. Respect him as God; this is the only true worship. John 3:5 says: "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." Don't settle for the Legend Jesus Christ, who is another Jesus, who does not exist. Be born of the Spirit, and be born of water (the word of God), and enter into the kingdom of God as a son/daughter of God.

7. How about preachers who say that Jesus Christ talks to them Now?

In John 10:27 Jesus Christ says My sheep hear my voice. There is a breed of preachers quote this verse and say that Jesus Christ is now directly speaking to them and if you do not hear his voice, then you are not his sheep. Then they teach techniques how to hear his voice and so on. The result is that so many people say that Jesus Christ is speaking to them and they have become prophets and prophetesses. But, whatever Jesus Christ is speaking to them are opposite to the word of God, the Bible. Then they say to put the Bible away and to hear his voice directly as the word of God. This is deception and the trick of the devil. They are all fakes and they put up a show as if Jesus Christ is talking to them. Let us see “My sheep hear my voice” in its context. John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: In its context Jesus Christ tells that the religious people will not hear his call because they do not believe him, but those who believe him will hear his voice and they follow him. This verse does not refer to prophetic utterances, or revelations, or conversation, etc, but the voice of his calling to follow him as disciples and those who hear this voice will follow him and they will live as Jesus Christ lived in holiness and righteousness, fearing God the Father. But, these preachers will not become the disciples of Jesus Christ, but they have big mouth and boastful talk. They try to throw the Bible away and introduce another Jesus Christ, who is the devil in disguise. It is deception and they are deceivers.

Now a days many wolves pretend as if they are sheep of Jesus Christ. Further, they know how to speak from the Bible as the devil spoke the Bible even to Jesus Christ. On top of it, they claim that Jesus Christ speaks to them. But they speak things opposite to what the Bible says and they say material things to promote themselves and to their profit and fame. It is nothing but the trick of the devil. If Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost speak anything, they will never contradict the word of God which is given to people, which is the Bible. So, if any message is opposite to the word of God, we must know that the message is from Satan, who is the father of lies.
