The ONLY way

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
~~~~oooOooo~~~~
I am sharing this scripture for someone who
reads my blog. Someone who thinks there are other
ways to get to Heaven--or has lost their way
by false theology. Beware, even the elect is being
deceived these days, it is heartbreaking
and YET, more reason to stay in the WORD,
to guard your mind.
Please be careful....
I guess this is a reminder for all of us,
not just a certain blog reader.

How sweet to place the photo of your brother! A reminder too Deby...that indeed Jesus Christ is the only way..and Lorin is with him there as Christ promised in that same chapter of John. I go to prepare a PLACE FOR YOU! Amen!

We here these verses so often..yet, always so important to remember those who do not know THE WAY..THE TRUTH..AND THE LIFE...and that it is only found in one. Acts 4:14 Neither is there salvation in any other...

Great post!

A few Scriptures that come to mind are:

"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." Ephesians 2:8-9

God is All Powerful and only HE decides how one gains eternal life.

"As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." ~2 Peter 3:16

"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:...." ~2 Timothy 3:5a

It can be so easy to become deceived and we must be diligent that we don't become a casualty. Thanks for the excellent reminder!

Oh Deby,
I am praying here in NM.

Since some do not acknowledge God, I will explain God the way Bill explains his former life.

Bill was a law enforcement officer. Many times he would pull a person over and would ask "Do you know what the speed limit is here?"
Here are the answers he heard
1. No I do not know, is there a speed zone here?
2. Yes, I know the speed because I was going that speed.
3. No, and I wasn't speeding anyhow.
4. No officer I do not know the speed, was I speeding...and at the end of this conversation with this "person" Bill always received a thank you.

Why do I share this?
Because they represent people and the views of God

1-does not believe in God- makes no matter, as these in this category got the ticket even if they didn't believe in the speed zone-just as the fact that they cannot make GOD disappear.
2- People who "believe" they were correct, and got the ticket because they were speeding(see the gate is narrow and some are on the wrong path and don't even know it...such as those like the five unprepared virgins-
3-those in this category don't believe they need to fear God as He is love, and therefore they should be exempt from a ticket and judgment-because God doesn't really mean what He wrote anymore than the speeding sign is the speed.
4.This is the person who knows that they are in need of guidance leading and direction. No matter what or where or when they Know that all things are possible because of Him and that without the Blood of the Lamb they are too repugnant too full of sin too unworthy...but with it they too will have an eternity with Him.

Irregardless of believing or not EVERY KNEE shall bow. So feigning ignorance or choosing the lust of the flesh(world) or even those that are either Pharisees or too wide in the gate of their interpretation of His word.

Nothing but the Blood of Jesus- no denial, no inclusiveness of things that God abhors, no works, no deeds, no BLINDERS WILL CHANGE THIS.

I pray that this makes sense, and is head on in Him...Jennifer

Amen, Deby, salvation is through our gift from God, our precious Lord Jesus. Here is a post I wrote on salvation:

Our God is a loving God and Jesus has set us free!

A Note From Theresa said...

It is sad how some people lose their way and get dragged down into false doctrine thinking all the time that they are ok. When one gets out of Church and stops reading the Bible it's easy for the wicked one to get a hold of them. (I have a sister that this has happened to) And even though the Bible is clear on the way to heaven those people who lost their way will not hear, because they don't want to. Being to comfortable in the sin they have fallen into. We must pray for them and hope one day they come back to the truth.

Love you Deby.

blackberrycottage said...

AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!!
I shall pray for this person, dear Deby. Often the deceived don't know they are deceived. I pray the Lord will clearly speak to to this reader and take the scales from their eyes so that they can see and know the Truth.

Deborah said...

A young lady I know recently chose to turn from the only way to go down a wide path that leads to destruction. She knows the scriptures, and she knows that Jesus is the only way, so why did she step off the narrow way? Simply because the allure of sin was stronger than her faith. It's so sad to see people try to justify their sin...they're only fooling themselves...so they may enjoy the pleasures of sin for a seasonheb.11:25c
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.Gal.6:7
Heb.9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement:

Donna said...

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 2 Peter 2:21

To turn away from the truth... *shudder*. Please Lord, help us to always walk in your truth.

Hi Deby, it is always a dangerous thing when folks look to God to make them good rather than trusting in Him because He IS good. That kind of thinking has caused so many folks to follow the wide way. I always pray that God will do whatever He has to do in the lives of people so that they will want HIM and not just the blessings that they can receive from Him.

Sharon said...

As I read your post and comments, the Scripture that Donna quoted came to my mind and also this one in Hebrews 10:31: It is a fearful thing to fall into the Hands of the Living God.

Deby:
Having gone 36 years of my life without faith in Jesus Christ, I can sure attest to a bizarre and self made belief system I constructed to overcome any conviction my behavior, thoughts, or words might bring.

I believe with all my heart what Paul says in Romans. We either worship the creator by understanding creation is from Him or we worship the creation. By worshiping the creation we become a Hedonist.....believing all of creation is for our pleasure and enjoy the delusion there is no God.

Romans 1:18-25

The consequence for worshiping creation.....death!

I chose life and life is in the Son. Thank you, Jesus, for rescuing me from that life.

Deby,

I say AMEN to everything that has been written already!

Having spent the first 22 years of my life without my Saviour, I know that I made up whatever I wanted to believe to soothe my conscience so that thoughts of God and my inner heart would not bother me!

I thank Him daily that He broke through my sinful heart and my hardened conscience to save my precious soul ... cleansing me of all my sin with His own precious blood!!

Blessings :o)

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6. Thanks for sharing this Scripture, Deby, which the Lord used in my life for the saving of my soul many years ago. For anyone who has lost his or her way, I would point them to this verse, and to another precious one: "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37. And then, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28. I pray that God will work in the heart of the person you directed this post to and that the Lord will work in the heart of that person and bring them to true salvation. I am sure they are hurting, without Christ, and that they need Him very much. It's a dark road to destruction without Him, so I hope and pray that they will flee to Jesus without delay. I'll be praying for the Lord's mercies.

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts," - II Peter 3:3

"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power." -- II Timothy 3: 1 - 5

"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." -- I Corinthians 8:6

The Word of God speaks clearly about what to expect in these last days before Christ's return. The lack of faith that is so prevalent today is no surprise to God.

Remember what King David wrote in Psalm 14, verse 1: "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."

Woe unto those who deny God!

Thanks for the reminder Deby I lost my way for a while but praise His name He has me back on the path. Marie x

I thought of a song when I read your post. The chorus simply says:

When you change your mind, you're gonna find the love of God and sing about Amazing Grace,
Or you can wait a little while and become a believer when you meet Him face to face
Will you make it into Heaven or will you get left behind
Well, I guess it all depends on when you change your mind.

~Kristi

Elizabethd said...

Wonderful words, thank you.

Sharon said...

I will pray for your friend. I don't understand why people can't accept the simple fact of Jesus. That He is the only way to heaven and eternal life. It is so simple. I pray your friend will turn back to the Lord.

Hugs, Sharon

Hey Deby...did you see on Fox news how Christine Gregoire let the atheists put up a big sign saying there is no such thing as God...right next to a Nativity Scene in OUR STATE CAPITAL!! Right now Washington is the disgrace of the US...I cannot believe she was the choice of the people of Washington state.
