CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A RELIGION (series two)

If Christianity is truly a Religion, why don’t we as avid believers sacrifice our very own CHILDREN! But going to Church is the new headache I noticed God is having and no doctor can prescribe Him a painkiller! Church should lead and reconcile mankind to His Maker through Jesus and not any other name!

IN THIS SERIES we shall answer the question, who is Jesus?

To be safely sound for all bible scholars, JESUS is ALL. Everything you can ever imagine. The devil twisted some things but the truth remains that Jesus is everything!

Colossians 1:16- ‘For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist’.

Also Check this…

Revelation 22:13- ‘I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last’.

He said to John the beloved, introduced himself as the beginning, and the end, this can simply mean that the whole time and seasons of humanity is summarized in Jesus.

He knows all things from the beginning to the end. Being the first will also mean that there is nothing done in heaven and on earth that He wasn’t the first to do.

To say that He is the Last being God Almighty is not an excuse for complacency as some may think rather, it means that, no one will come after Him to claim that He or she is God. Simply, there is no other God than Jesus who is the expression of the trinity.

Check this, its one of my favourites…

John 1:1 ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God’.

Another question, who is the Word? JESUS…

Therefore, I can say that in my own opinion…

‘In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God’.

Check this…

1John 5:7 ‘There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the HolyGhost: and these three are one’.

Once again we see the ‘Word’ but here it is stated with the Trinity as earlier mentioned. So Jesus is with the Trinity, a part of Divinity.

But this particular scripture makes it clear…

Matthew 28:19- ‘Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost…’

The Word of God which is Jesus, He is also the Son of God.

Some of you don’t believe that God Almighty can have a Son…it shows you don’t know how powerful God really is…

Read this…

Luke 1:37- ‘For with God nothing shall be impossible’.

We can keep flying from one scripture to the other, trying to describe the Person of Jesus but if we attempt to do that, millions of books will never be enough and billions of preachers will never with their mouth be able to explain.

JESUS as we have seen through these scriptures never mentioned anything about Religion, so why do we twist the scriptures ourselves?

SEE THIS IN THE BOOK OF HEBREWS 1:1-6 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

VERSE THREE says…’Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person…’ Apostle Paul never said, Who being the brightness of the religion of God’s glory (neither did he say) that Jesus is the express image of God’s religion.

Christianity can never be a religion. We may follow through with doctrines which is meant to be drawn from the word of God and laws of men as we see in the scripture below…

2Timothy-‘3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness…

Therefore, let us not be carried away with the baseless philosophies of men as clearly warned in this scripture below…

Colossians 2:8- ‘Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ’.

RATHER LOOK UNTO JESUS…

Hebrews 12:2- ‘Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God’.

Your Pastor is not your God and your Church is not the only the only sanctuary God made available for worship…

May be you haven’t read this in your bible, what Jesus said to a religious believer…

John 4:21 ‘Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth’.

Therefore I beseech you my brethren that by the mercies and foolishness of God which is wiser than the wisdom of men that you should and must serve Jesus not follow Religion.

Going to Church is necessary as the scripture as said…

Hebrews 10:25 ‘Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching’.
