Heaven Pt. 45

“Therefore know this day, and consider [it] in your heart, that the LORD Himself [is] God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; [there is] no other.” Deut. 4:39

As I was putting together post forty four on Heaven from Deuteronomy 4:39 another thought came to my mind that I just couldn’t pass by. I don’t know how it is where you live but here in the U.S. we make much of our freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. We have been told by those who supposedly know that we no longer live in a Christian society but a pluralistic society. The whole world is called to turn to the tune of tolerance.

It bears keeping in mind that while that is the law of the land for the moment, in the Kingdom we are about to come into there is no freedom of religion. God is God alone and He does not think that “as long as you have faith in something…anything  it’s O.K.” In the end it’s not about faith alone it’s about faith placed in Jesus. Jesus is not one among many gods. He alone sits on the throne at the right hand of the Father and He has never been content to be worshipped alongside others. It might be the best our society can do for the moment but it won’t be good enough to save our current world system from the wrath to come.

It’s not a popular message,I suppose, but it is the truth!

“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

May our hearts be steadfast!

  1. God bless you , Pastor J! I have someone that comments occasionally and if it’s on a post about Jesus being the only way . . .well, she has problems with it. I try to handle it as graciously as I can . . .she can comment and say whatever she wants to . .. but I can’t agree with her. Thank you for the truth here!

    • There is such great disagreement on this isn’t there Deb! Everyone is OK with us as Christians until we put Christ at the center of our Christianity!

  2. (political correctness to blame yet again)

    This is the main difference between “religions”. Christianity is the only one that claims only ONE way – through Christ and His finished work at Calvary.

    All other religions spring from man’s efforts to be at peace with God, and therefore we find numerous ideas and ‘ways’ to achieve it. Christianity alone tells of God seeking reconciliation with mankind. Since HE is the initiator, there can be only one way.

  3. Amen Pastor it is not a popular message at all,just as it was not when Jesus lived here. But he kept right on proclaiming God’s truth just as we must. At times we feel the strain and stress that goes along with proclaiming his truth,but we’ve read the end of the book-the most important book,the awesome word of God,and we win,we win!!
    Love you Pastor 😀
