There is no way for anyone to access God the Father & heaven, except through the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Those persons who reject that truth are lost, and are spiritually blind, as stated in 2 Corinthians 4.3-4:
3 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
Lost people can’t comprehend scripture any more than a drunkard can comprehend simple sentences.
1 Corinthians 2.14 tells us about this condition:
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Therefore, in order for someone to see the kingdom of God, the lost sinner must be born again by the Spirit of God, just as Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3.3:
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
However anyone who will humble themselves as a little child and seek God’s mercy in His only begotten Son…will have all of the spiritual treasure of being in Christ, totally free of charge to the recipient.
In its simplest terms, salivation is where God exchanges a person’s status of being a spiritually dead, guilty, hellbound sinner…to being fully accepted in the beloved, and fully clothed in the righteousness of God!!!
Is that great news or what!!!?
Oh that truth excites me!!!
Which is why I’m so eager to tell everyone as my living testimony…
“Hey ya’ll, I deserve to be thrown into hell.
But you know what?
God saved me in Christ, and now I’m a fully forgiven, fully sanctified saint, who’s fully the righteousness of God!!!
All as a free gift to me from my heavenly Father!!!
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever!!!
