Is Jesus the Messiah?


1 John 2:22-24 Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist that denies the Father and the Son. Whosoever denies the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledged the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.3783121424_32146b5da0_m

How can we Identify a righteous man, here we have it in John, the righteous man is one who loves his brother and accept the truth concerning Christ. He not only believes in God, but acknowledges that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah and King. Upon his acceptance of this truth, it is evident he has been born again.

God has given to his son the authority to rule, and so to accept the son is to accept the Father. If a man accepts God, but denies the son, as it is written, he is an antichrist. To be saved, a man must both accept the son and the father, and to accept the father is to accept the son.

Jesus told us plainly that no man can come unto the father, but by Him, Christ; pointing to the fact that all the power of the Father is in him. We can in no way get to the Father overlooking Christ, in-order to get to God we must first go through his son.

In Matthew 1:18-21 “we are told, His name shall be called Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins“.  Jesus is the man sent from God according to the promise to save the world; the man’s whose kingdom will never ends. There are many religions out there today believing in a God, but denying the son they are worshiping the fallen angels, and being led away into the pit of hell.

Unless they turn from their sins, embracing Jesus Christ, as Jesus told the religious leaders of his time, “you die in your sins”, so will they also die in their sins?  Allah is not the God of salvation, Buddha is not the God of peace, nor is any other god the Father. In-order to get to the Father, we must first come to Jesus Christ who will introduce us to the Father.
