The big question at hand is this, “Who really was Jesus?” Is it important to know God’s Christ - the Christ of Holy Scripture - and His teachings of salvation for humanity? My friend, the answer to this literal life and death question is: it surely is. It is a matter of Eternal Life or Eternal Death!
The Way of the Master has put forth this simple test that anyone can take called, (click link below)
This simple test will challenge the individual to evaluate themselves in the PERFECT STANDARD of Almighty God's Law (the Ten Commandments). It will be shown that when someone breaks even ONE of these commandments in deed or word or private thought, they are guilty of ALL of them! (James 2:10) The Law is called our School Master (Gal 3:24). The Law is to communicate the transgressor the RIGHTEOUS (perfect) requirements for entrance into Almighty God's Presence and Perfect and Holy Heaven. No one in their right mind would proclaim, "I am perfect!" You would be classified as either an egomaniac or a nut.
The law (God's righteous standard for man) of the LORD is PERFECT, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple (Psalm 19:7).
In the person of Jesus Christ, Almighty God's great love has provided the vital righteousness and pardon that we so desperately need to escape the damnation of Almighty God's eternal justice and sentence in eternity's prison called Hell (Rev. 20:11-15).
We would like to encourage you to objectively take this brief test and see for yourself your desperate need for God's pardon and righteousness available through Jesus Christ. If you are a sincere seeker, then God the Holy Spirit will lead you into all TRUTH (John 16:8-14).
The Bible states:
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster TO BRING US unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith (Gal 3:24).
For God so loved the world, that he GAVE his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but have everlasting life. For God SENT not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might BE SAVED (John 3:16-17).
And he (the Lord Jesus Christ/Messiah) is the propitiation (that satisfying of the debt) for our sins (trespasses): and not for ours only, but also for the sins (trespasses of the whole world (1 John 2:2).
For they BEING IGNORANT of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the END of the law FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS to every one that believeth (Romans 10:3-4). ,
Are you absolutely perfect? If you have sanely answered "no" then you are doomed in the Day of Judgement (Matt 7:23). All must absolutely perfect to enter into Almighty God's presence. The Bible states the we all are transgressors of the righteousness of Almighty God (Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:23). (Click link on words for image example)
How Did You Do?
After participating in this challenge it must be plainly obvious that you - as a human being - fall dreadfully short of the perfectly righteous standard of Almighty God. Can you not see how vital Christ/ Messiah is for your eternal well being? Be not deceived, God WILL judge sinners and trespassers of His holy righteousness, i.e., ALL who reject God's pardon found in Jesus Christ (John 3:36). The Bible states:
For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast (Eph. 2:8-9).
But we are ALL as an unclean thing, and ALL our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we ALL do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away (Isaiah 64:6).
Do you personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If you haven't, humble yourself - let go of all your foolish pride - and surrender to the One Who loved you and gave His life for you!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
