No one will reach Heaven but through Jesus Christ

jesus1

The Way, the Truth, and the Life is only by Jesus Christ like it or not, admit it or not, believe it or not.
 .
Eternal life in heaven is made possible only through Christ. Jesus prayed, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (John 17:3). To receive God’s free gift of salvation, we must look to Jesus and Jesus alone. We must trust in Jesus’ death on the cross as our payment for sin and in His resurrection. “This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe” (Romans 3:22).
.
Jesus did not give  any other options. God  by Jesus Christ reached out to man to save him because man was helpless to save himself.  For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. (2 Cor. 5:21, NLT)
 .

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

.

Romans 10:9-10  Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

 .
John 14: 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. 7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”…

John 10:9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.

Acts 9:2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.
.
Romans 5:2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. .
.
Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.

Hebrews 9:8 The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning. .

.
Hebrews 10:20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, .
.
1 John 5:20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

Yes, Jesus is the only way to heaven. Such an exclusive statement  it is true nonetheless.
 .
The Bible teaches that there is no other way to salvation than through Jesus Christ.  He is not a way, as in one of many; He is the way, as in the one and only. No one, regardless of race, beliefs, reputation, achievement, special knowledge, or personal holiness, can come to God the Father except through Jesus. Jesus is the only way to heaven for several reasons. Jesus was “chosen by God” to be the sole Savior   and Jesus is the only One to have come down from heaven and returned there
 .
Jesus said  that MANY will seek to enter into Heaven, but only a few will be allowed. ..
.
Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into ..
.
There is only one way to Heaven and that is through trusting Jesus Christ. Luke 13:23-24 and 28, “Then said one unto him, Lord,  are there few that be saved?; And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able … There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”
.
Knowing, having , preaching half truths, or partial truths isn’t enough too
 .
“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.” . “These religious people were lost and on their way to Hell. They were shocked and dumbfounded when the Lord rejected them. They had spent their lives teaching in Jesus’ name and doing many charitable deeds in Jesus’ name. How could this happen? What went wrong? They were so sincere and now they’re are being told they cannot enter into Heaven. Despite trying to blame the Lord, they will be cast into the Lake of Fire forever. . Perhaps you ask, what groups of religious people today are doing wonderful things in Jesus’ name, and are speaking in Jesus’ name; but are lost and on their way to Hell? Namely: Lutherans, Catholics, Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Scientology, Muslims, Judaism, Christian Science, Greek Orthodox, United Church of Christ, Russian Orthodox, Unitarian Universalist, Moonies, New Agers, Episcopal, the Lordship Salvation crowd and many more. . Even the group who go around saying, “Lord, Lord,” but have never rested completely in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Jesus plainly tells us why they were not allowed into Heaven .
.
Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
.
Every one of the religious groups I just mentioned have not done GOD’S WILL concerning salvation. What is God’s will to enter into Heaven? Jesus gave us the plain and simple answer in the Scriptures…
.
John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” . The will of God the Father is to BELIEVE on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God.
.
John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” . There is only one way to Heaven and that is through trusting Jesus Christ. Anyone who acknowledges their guilt of sin and comes to God the Father through God the Son for forgiveness will be saved…”
.
Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”

Jesus Christ is the Messiah Of Israel

Most of us by now should be familiar with the Greek translation of this word, which is “Christos” or “Christ” in English.   Jesus Christ means Jesus the Christ -Messiah One anointed by the Holy Spirit.. as per Acts 10: 28 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Messiah -Messiah – Hebrew word signifying “one who has been anointed.” The kings of Israel were anointed with oil in the name of God, which symbolized his investiture with the Spirit of God. That the Messiah is supposed to be a king is a well-known fact by anyone who has studied the Bible in depth.

Even on the cross the inscription read, “The king of the Jews”(Mark 15:26). Mark 15:32: “Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross.”

John 1:40 & 49: “We have found the Messiah…Rabbi, you are the Son of God; the king of Israel.”

Luke 19:38: “Blessed is the king (Jesus) who comes in the name of the Lord (YHWH).

Other verses: Jeremiah 23:5, Daniel 7:13, Psalms 2:6, Zechariah 9:9, Acts 17:7, 2 Timothy 4:1. There are many more.

The Jews today (because they failed to recognize and accept Jesus as the Messiah) are still waiting for the Messiah to come.

Who First Recognized Jesus as Messiah?  According to Luke 2:22–24, “[Joseph and Mary] brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male shall be designated as holy to the Lord’ [quoting Exodus 13:2, 12]) and they offered a sacrifice according to what is stated in the law of the Lord, ‘a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons’ [based on Leviticus 12:2–8].”

At the Temple, the family is approached by a man named Simeon, who has been told by the Holy Spirit that he will not die until he has seen the messiah. (The same Spirit told him to go to the Temple that day, too.) Simeon takes Jesus in his arms and praises God: “Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel” (Luke 2:28–32). Having seen the messiah, Simeon is now prepared to die.

Anna then approaches the Holy Family. She, too, recognizes Jesus as messiah, but she has a very different reaction: “At that moment, she came and began to speak about the child to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem” (Luke 2:38). She is 84 years old, according to Luke, and she does not want to die: She wants to proselytize. Like the disciples who will follow her, she is driven to bear witness to what she has seen. Mary was the first to have the good news announced to her, but Anna is the first woman to understand fully and proclaim the good news.

This is because in addition to being a proselytizer, Anna is a “prophetess” (Luke 2:36).

The Messiahship of Jesus is the foundation of Christianity. When Jesus was arrested and brought before the Sanhedrin, the high priest asked him: “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” (Mark 14:61). In Matthew, the question appears in the form of a request: “Tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God” (Matthew 26:63). When asked whether he was the Messiah, Jesus answered: “I am” (Mark 16:62). “The truth is, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58 NLT)

When Jesus was brought before Pilate, Pilate asked him: “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus told Pilate: “Yes, it is as you say” (Mark 15:2). Another passage that indicates that Jesus was aware of his Messiahship is Matthew 16:13-20 (cf. Mark 8:27-30), a passage that contains Peter’s confession at Caesarea Philippi. When Jesus asked his disciples, “who do you say I am?” Peter answered: “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

•“I am the light of the world” (John 8:12)
•“I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6)
•“I am the only way to the Father” (John 14:6)
•“I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25)
•“I am the Good Shepherd” (John 10:11)
•“I am the door” (John 10:9)
•“I am the living bread” (John 6:51)
•“I am the true vine” (John 15:1)
•“I am the Alpha and Omega” Rev.1:7,8)

The Old Testament, written over a 1,000 year period, contains over 300 references to the coming Messiah. All of these were fulfilled in Jesus Christ, and they established a solid confirmation of His credentials as the Messiah; the Anointed One (King; Priest; Saint); Intercessor (to release or deliver; help; meet; seek; accompany). The chance of any one man fulfilling all of 48 prophecies is one in 10 to the 157 power.   Jesus Christ fulfilled every prophecy written about the coming Messiah — over three hundred of them! Would that have been possible had He not been the Son of God?  Jesus is the TRUE Messiah of Israel and of all mankind. http://www.israelsmessiah.com/prophecy/messiah/Y’SHUAH.htm

“I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshipped him.” (Daniel 7:13, 14)

Jesus told his disciples that when he returns to earth, ”Then everyone will see the Son of man arrive on the clouds with power and great glory” (Luke 21:27).  Jesus he is the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy?

It is important to begin by saying that for one who has already made up his or her mind that Jesus is not the Messiah, no amount of evidence will be convincing. But for those who are honest in asking, the evidence speaks for itself.

Jesus transforms people’s lives. Because he provides atonement for sin and reconciliation with God, Jesus brings peace, joy, and purpose into people’s lives. Apart from faith in him, there is no basis for true peace or direction, for as the psalmist says, “Man is estranged from the womb.” That this estrangement is healed by the reconciling ministry of Jesus is the common experience of those who believe in him.

Thus between the objective evidence of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, and the subjective verification by many in their own lives– there’s ample evidence that Jesus was who he claimed to be!

Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand

(Mat 4:17 KJV)  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

.

Biblical repentance is admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God,  and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them. True repentance is confession, contrition,   change; replacement and it involves the whole person, Our Body, Soul, Spirit. It is also  a personal, ongoing event.

.
Luke 24:33  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, Luke 24:34  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. Luke 24:35  And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread. Luke 24:36  And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. Luke 24:37  But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. Luke 24:38  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Luke 24:39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. Luke 24:40  And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. Luke 24:41  And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? Luke 24:42  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. Luke 24:43  And he took it, and did eat before them. Luke 24:44  And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Luke 24:45  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, Luke 24:46  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: Luke 24:47  And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:48  And ye are witnesses of these things. Luke 24:49  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

.

(Rev 2:5 KJV)  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

.

(Rev 2:16 KJV)  Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

.

2 Cor 7:9  Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner…. 2 Cor 7:10  For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 2 Cor 7:11  For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort,

.

(Mat 4:17 KJV) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

2 Tim 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 Tim 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2 Tim 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2 Tim 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2 Tim 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2 Tim 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2 Tim 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2 Tim 3:8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
2 Tim 3:9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

Revelation 2:14-16 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality. [15] Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. [16] Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

;

•• Repent of anything associated with demons (in this Scripture = “eating food sacrificed to idols”) —

• Horoscopes, Ouija boards, witchcraft, New Age…

•• Repent of sexual immorality.

• A young adult Christian lady recently told me that she was shocked and distressed by the sexual liberties that many Christians take!

•• Repent of the doctrine of the Nicolaitans:

(1) A doctrine of exaggerated Christian liberty.

• I am personally amazed at the number of Christian pastors who regularly drink alcohol and see no problem with it.

(2) A tendency to “conquer the laity” — churches where the “clergy” dominate “the laity” need to repent. There is no such dictatorial rule in the bible.

.

Revelation 2:20-22 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. [21] I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. [22] So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways 

;

Revelation 3:1-3 To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. [2] Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. [3] Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

•• Repent of living on your past spiritual reputation.

• 2 Corinthians 6:2 “…now is the day of salvation.” We need to be growing in our salvation daily. There is no place in this life where we can be content to say, “I have arrived; I’m mature enough.”

•• Repent of falling asleep. Wake up!

• The devil is like the old “Sandman” many of us heard about in childhood — inducing us to sleep, sleep, sleep. The last thing in the world that Satan wants is a wide-awake, vigilant, on-fire Church!

•• Repent of receiving and hearing, but not obeying.

• James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

.

Revelation 3:15-17, 19 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! [16] So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth. [17] You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked…. [19] Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.

•• Repent of growing lukewarm. This is perhaps the most dangerous mindset for a Christian. Jesus said He would even prefer us “cold” to “lukewarm” (vss. 15-16)! Clearly His greatest desire is that we be “hot” in our faith, on fire for Him.

•• Repent of self-satisfaction — “I am rich … I do not need a thing” (vs. 17).
