NO OTHER WAY BUT BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: [The greatest truth we have ever received comes from the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these bear the testimony, that God HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE – a right to endless glory, and the means to obtain it. This life is in his Son; it comes by and through him; he is its author and the purchaser; IT IS ONLY IN AND THROUGH HIM. No other arrangement FOR SALVATION IS REAL; GOD HAS PROVIDED NO OTHER WAY BUT BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.] “And this is the testimony: GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:11-12) [The Father, who bears testimony to his Son; the Word, who bears testimony to the Father; and the Holy Ghost, who bears testimony to the Father and the Son. And these three are one, and agree in the one testimony, THAT JESUS CAME TO DIE FOR, AND GIVE LIFE TO, THE WORLD!] “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and THESE THREE AGREE IN ONE.” (1 John 5:7-8) [Our Abba Father’s word is the revelation of his will, in the things concerning the salvation of man. All that God has promised we are justified in expecting; and what he has promised, and we expect, WE SHOULD PRAY FOR!] “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us–whatever we ask–we know that WE HAVE WHAT WE ASKED OF HIM.” (1 John 5:14-15) [When Jesus told us that He is going to prepare a place for us – He said He will come again, after His resurrection, and give us the fullest assurances of this wonderful experience of blessedness; and confirm us in the faith, by His grace and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit!] “Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:5-7) [LISTEN TO THIS WONDERFUL PROMISE!] “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me WILL DO THE WORKS I HAVE BEEN DOING, and they will do EVEN GREATER THINGS THAN THESE.” Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and SHOW MYSELF TO THEM.” (John 14:12-21)
Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that WE WILL DO EVEN GREATER THINGS THAN JESUS DID!
