1. When Jesus Christ said to His disciples, “… I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME”, emphasis was on TRUTH [John 14:6] TRUTH is the MYSTERY of God manifested in Jesus Christ. The preaching of the GOSPEL paves the WAY, but no man is SAVED or FREE of SIN and DEATH until the PERSONAL IDENTITY of God is REVEALED in Jesus Christ, as the Bible says: “And ye shall KNOW THE TRUTH, and the TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE” [John 8:32] Listen closely, the preacher may affect you to CONFESS your SINS, ONLY Jesus Christ REVEALS the PERSONAL IDENTITY of God as it is written: “… no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and HE TO WHOM THE SON WILL REVEAL HIM” [Luke 10:22] TRUTH is not THEOLOGY or DOCTRINE, but God REVEALED in Jesus Christ to reconcile us to Himself [1 Timothy 3:16]SALVATION is a personal relationship with God; if the SON did not REVEAL God to you, whatever you profess is a MASQUERADE and PRETENDER. Let every man professing Christ answer the question the Lord asked His disciples, saying: “But WHOM SAY YE THAT I AM?” [Matthew 16:15] Peter replied, “… The CHRIST OF GOD” [Luke 9:20] WHOSE CHRIST IS YOURS? The CHRIST OF GOD or PRETENDER?
2. Jesus Christ said to the woman at the well in Samaria, “YE WORSHIP YE KNOW NOT WHAT: we know what we worship …” [John 4:22] Samaritans received THEOLOGY of RELIGION from their FATHERS, but knew not God [John 4:20] The Church also suffer from the ERROR of FATHERS who imposed JUDAISM on Christianity. They clothed Jesus Christ in robes borrowed from Moses to create a monstrous MASQUERADE which ensnare multitudes in MATERIAL BONDAGE to the LAW. The ERROR persists today in those BLIND to TRUTH and the LIBERTY Jesus Christ bought for us with His blood. When they quote Matthew 5:17 and say Jesus came to FULFIL the LAW, they mix Him up with one of the prophets [Matthew 16:13-14] Jesus indeed FULFILLED the LAW, when He DIED on the CROSS and “… ABOLISHED IN HIS FLESH THE ENMITY, EVEN THE LAW of commandments contained in ordinances… “[Ephesians 2:15] Beloved, be not IGNORANT of the “… DISANNULLING OF THE COMMANDMENT GOING BEFORE for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the LAW MADE NOTHING PERFECT, but the bringing in of a BETTER HOPE did… ” [Hebrews 7:18-19] If your Christ is of the LAW, you are in BONDAGE to the LAW to fulfil every obligation thereof, but “If the Son therefore shall make you free, YE SHALL BE FREE INDEED” [John 8:36]
3. When Imperial Rome adopted Christianity, prophecy was fulfilled concerning the “… HORN THAT HAD EYES, and a MOUTH that spake very great things,… he shall SPEAK GREAT WORDS AGAINST THE MOST HIGH, and shall WEAR OUT THE SAINTS of the most High, and think to CHANGE TIMES and LAWS …“ [Daniel 7:20-21] The HORN was the PRETENDER bequeathed to the world at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. This MASQUERADE “SPOKE GREAT WORDS AGAINST THE MOST HIGH”, denouncing the GODHEAD and calling men to worship a TRIUMVIRATE of distinct PERSONALITIES as God. God is ONE and the “… invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being UNDERSTOOD BY the things that are made, even HIS ETERNAL POWER and GODHEAD [Romans 1:20] The JEHOVAH of ancient times is the same that was “MANIFEST IN THE FLESH”, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH …” [1 Timothy 3:16] If the Christ you profess is ONE of THREE GODS, you are an IDOLATER. The Lord Jesus Christ is God, “For IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY” [Colossians 2:9] Brethren, there is no confusion in Matthew 28: 19, the Bible says: “… IN THE NAME…, NOT NAMES and His NAME is Jesus Christ, wherefore the Apostles “… BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS” [Acts 19:5]
4. There is a NEW AGE PRETENDER in the world. He wears the crown of MATERIAL PROSPERITY with pride and sits on the throne of SPIRITUL IDOLATRY. His THEOLOGY is a REWARD SYSTEM which lures men to “FOOL’S PARADISE” with a sweetened blend of JUDAISM and PAGANISM. His promises of REWARD, in this world, for service to God are LIES from the pits of hell. Thus, says the Lord: “… I COME QUICKLY; and MY REWARD IS WITH ME, to give every man according as his work shall be” [Revelation 22:12] If you think SALVATION is a get-rich-quick scheme, you are trapped in STRONG DELUSION, as it is written: “And for this cause GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH,… ” [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12] SALVATION is a personal relationship between Jesus Christ and you, and the proof is not ANOINTING, TITLES or GIFTS of the Spirit, but Jesus Christ ‘KNOWING” and REVEALING Himself to you. If the Christ you have is the PRETENDER, you are in for a rude shock at the coming of the Lord. Thus said the Lord: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not PROPHESIED IN THY NAME? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:22-23]
