I confess: Jesus is Lord! Jesus is God come in a real body. Jesus lived a perfect life. Jesus was born of a virgin. Jesus is the only way to heaven. Jesus is the perfect sacrifice for sin. Jesus is the only source of forgiveness before God. Jesus is alive. Jesus rose from the dead. Jesus is coming back again. All will be reconciled in Jesus. All his enemies will be made His footstool.
IT’S ALL ABOUT WHO JESUS IS! IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. 1 John 4:1-2 ESV
Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, who is God come in the flesh!
But there are many false prophets. There are those who:
1. Deny Him outright.
2. Claim he was an important prophet, but less than The Christ.
3. Say he is the Christ but redefine the terminology of the Bible.
4. Put Jesus in a long list of many legitimate ways to get to heaven.
5. Make Jesus a footnote to prosperity, health, and positive living.
6. Portray Jesus as “a” god who was really just an angel that became a man.
7. Label those who stand as salt and light in a decaying and dark world of sin as “hate-mongers.”
I’m sure there are other ways to get around not confessing that Jesus is the The Christ from God.
But, did you recognize these descriptions?
1. Atheism. 2. Islam. 3. Mormonism. 4. Universalism. 5. Some popular writers and preachers. 6. Jehovah Witnesses. 7. American “Political Correctness” or “Tolerance.”
Jesus is God. Jesus is Lord! One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him as LORD!
