“Jesus said unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6
God alone knows the way to life and living and He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, as the Sacrificial Lamb to pay the penalty of sin for the sinner and break the power of sin for the Believer so that we may have life. Through the Cross of Christ we are alive unto God and afforded the ability to partake in God’s Divine Nature if we so choose.
“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of God’s Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4
The way of man without God is corrupted and leads to death. No matter the vanities of humanistic psychology to overcome the world and live your best life now, it is a product of carnal minds under satan’s dominion. In the modern church, psychology is draped in Scripture to appear “right” to the unknowing Believer, whereby they then equate this doctrine of demons with biblical Christianity. Being deceived, the Believer leads a defeated Christian life because they are not partaking in God’s Divine Nature but learning worldly statutes believing them to be the “Truth”. The Truth (the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for Salvation AND daily living for God) is no longer Truth when it has been corrupted with a lie. This IS the leaven which leavens the whole lump.
Prayerfully these Believers run this race to the end and enter the Gates of Pearl still smoking from the fire which continues to burn the many unprofitable works they have been toiling over in the ways of the world, as their faith remains steadfast in the Cross of Christ for Salvation. Sadly however, there are untold millions who give up and turn from God’s Prescribed Order for life and life more abundantly through faith in the Cross of Christ for everything they receive from God and turn from Him. Their faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified for Salvation is destroyed by the commandments of men given as doctrine and they lose their way. It is the devil’s purpose to destroy the Believers faith in the Cross of Christ and he uses religion to achieve his goal. The sincere yet deceived Believer is satan’s tool…just ask Adam.
“ But seek you first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
